Although it only had a few episodes, the series was popular in the abridging community, and the announcer had even became a shared running gag. It was also notable for its extensive use of background music. It was confirmed as officially canceled in a video posted by IDLIT, although the video was taken down very soon after it was aired. It was declared dead in MSG Abridged Episode 15, when Cheesemanjoe, G Gundam Abridged's creator, guest starred. It couldn't have asked for a more fitting send off. -sniff-This show provides examples of:
Also the sounds of Domon snapping his fingers when he says, "Rise Shining Gundam", in episode 5, he snapped his fingers and the sound accompanied with it was Goku from Dragonball, saying, "Taiyo-ken!!"
Created several years ago, Gundam Wing Abridged follows the misadventures of the Gundam pilots as they deal with Ho Yay, Alternate Character Interpretation, and Lampshade Hanging galore. Has its own website now (which is nice, since YouTube suspended his account for copyvio) and and over twenty episodes, and making it one of the Long Runners of the abridged arena.This show provides examples of:
More Dakka: In universe example: Alex and Mueller reveal to Zechs that they plan on taking over the series, kill off every character but them selves and Wu Fei, and add in more rediculously powered Gundums... with more lasers.
Not Even Bothering with the Accent: An odd case. Heero, Wu Fei and Lady Une all have British accents, but most of the other characters don't. Speaking of American accent's this sometimes crosses over into
Psychic Link: Subverted. Lady Une thinks she has one of these with Treize for a bit and that he's using it to tell her to free the Gundam pilots because Romafeller bites now. It turns out it was just her imagination, but it tells her to go through with it anyway because "I'm Treeeeiiiiize Khusrenaaaaaadaaaaaa." (Except he's not.)
The Caligula: Duke Dermail, who hired a group of men to stand around in colorful coats just to agree with everything he says, thinks that any goldfish not actually made of gold should be ethnically cleansed and cannot seem to grasp that no, Treize is NOT in fact supportive of the Mibile Doll program, despite constantly being told so.
Big Brother Worship: Sayla seems to, considering that meeting Char (aka her brother Casval) in episode 15 causes her to start screaming "Nii-san" over and over until he yells at her to stop. Of course this is followed by Sayla shooting him for abandoning her. And then things are further complicated by the whole thing being a dream sequence.
Big Eater: Ryu who seems far more interested in food than just about anything else.
Butt Monkey: Amuro's suffering is a consistent source of amusement.
Commander Wakkein: "Those kids are too paranoid. Even the Red Comet wouldn't think to attack such a fortified position like Luna II."
*cut to Char*
Char: "We're attacking the fortified position known as Luna II."
Greek Chorus: Slender, Denim and Gene would certainly fit the criteria for this trope, that is, if they could stay on topic. Instead they prefer to relay anecdotes to each other with little interest in what is happening in the series.
I Warned You: Bright when Mirai convinces him to take White Base to a lake marked on their map in the middle of a desert which happens to be dry when they get there. Inverted though, because he doesn't actually say the warning in the first place.
Bright: "I must be a goddamned Newtype, 'cause I saw this coming from a mile away."
