Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: When Amuro shoots the soldier at the refugee camp out of desperation when his cover is blown, there doesn't seem to be any major repercussions for everyone else (on-screen anyway). In the manga adaptation, Amuro shoots the soldier and as he falls he discharges his machine gun, gunning down at least two other civilians. Their survival is left up in the air.


** In Kondo's manga adaptation the soldier that Amuro shoots in self-defense in front of his mother is killed instead of only wounded, making the argument with his mother take on a different light.

* [[spoiler:[[ItWasHisSled Amuro is killed]]]] in Tomino's novelization. However, this wasn't due to his KillEmAll attitude but rather because he didn't anticipate any sequels, and he has said that he wouldn't have done it if he knew better.
* [[spoiler:Hayato, as well. In fact, of the three main pilots, only Kai survives in the novelization.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance: In Kazuhisa Kondo's manga adaptation of the series, the Gouf shows up in a cutaway to Gadem's supply ship as they go to deliver the replacement Zaku II's to Char; the soldiers remarking on it as a new ground type to be shipped to M'Quve's forces. At this point in the story Side 7 is still being attacked and in the original the Gouf didn't show up until Ramba Ral's attack which happened when they got to Earth.


* ViolationOfCommonSense: The fact that the Guntank can be operated in space is one of the more absurd examples in the franchise. Sure it's sealed air-tight and has a few maneuvering thrusters to move and change direction but the Guntank's speed and maneuverability are laughable enough to make an ordinary Zaku I look fast. In the remakes, the Guntank was left behind in Jaburo and replaced with a Guncannon which confirms that even the creators thought that a Guntank operating in space was too silly.

Sure it's sealed air-tight and has a few maneuvering thrusters to move and change direction but the Guntank's speed and maneuverability are laughable enough to make an ordinary Zaku I look fast. Not to mention that the lower half of the Guntank would be disappointingly easy to hit.

** Lunar Titanium isn't really Unobtanium per say, it's just a significant upgrade over the kind of armor most mobile suits of the day were using. Conventional weapons still manage to significantly damage the Gundam on several occasions, and during one encounter explosive charges small enough to be carried in one hand are shown to be capable of breaching the armor if placed in the right spot. Really, Lunar Titanium has about as much effect on the battlefield as the invention of Sloped Armor did in WWII; it is superior to any existing design, but not a game-changer in and of itself.

* AgeGapRomance: Hamon and Ramba Ral. While it certainly seems to be a MayDecemberRomance from their appearances, Ral's much YoungerThanHeLooks and is actually in his 30s, his lined face and gray hair just makes him look older. There's a big age gap between the two.



* MayDecemberRomance: Subverted with Hamon and Ramba Ral. While it certainly seems to be from their appearances, Ral's much YoungerThanHeLooks and is actually in his 30s, his lined face and gray hair just makes him look older. There's a big age gap between the two, but it's not to the trope's extent.

Added DiffLines:

* WarIsHell: {{Downplayed}} but certainly a running theme throughout the series. The start of every episode shows us the infamous ColonyDrop that wiped out Sydney, Australia, and the ''very first episode'' shows us innocent civilians who are evacuating being blown up and killed by an overzealous Zeon soldier in a Mobile Suit, [[spoiler:including Fraw Bow's mother and grandfather]].
