* {{Zeerust}}: Not unusual for ''Gundam''. Notably, Garneaux's TV is laughably outdated by today's standards. On the plus side it can be activated just by snapping your finger.

* BigBad: [[spoiler:Garneaux. The man is pretty much a power-hungry GeneralRipper; his motives can be seen below]]. In the game, we have Colonel Bais, Garneaux's confidant.



* CharClone: Jack, sort of. He serves as Mark's rival and former superior officer. Sans a mask or a red mobile suit. Also Rysis from the game, [[PlayerCharacter Reed Fox]]'s rival and the pilot of [[spoiler:Project Raven]].
* TheChick: Dr. Cynthia Graves, the formula's inventor.
* ColonelBadass: Jack is a Lieutenant Colonel ''and'' an ace Mobile Suit pilot, as one might expect from a CharClone.



* TheDragon: Jack serves as Garneaux's adjutant[=/=]right-hand man throughout the movie.



* EvilLaugh: Jack has his moments, [[spoiler:such as when he was defeated by Mark]]. As if he wasn't evil enough.
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:Mimi when the ship she and Garneaux boarded gets shot down by CONSENT Rais]].



* GeneralRipper: [[spoiler:Garneaux, who wants to destroy the bioluminescence formula to maintain control over the Sides.]]



* TheMole: [[spoiler:Mimi is working for Garneaux; she'll do whatever it takes to steal the formula and hand it over to Garneaux, including dragging Gaia into war against CONSENT]].
* TheMistress: Garneaux has one who appears to come out of a {{nazisploitation}} movie.
* NonActionBigBad: [[spoiler:Garneaux doesn't fight any of the protagonists and relied on both Jack and his troops, being a general. And not a [[FrontlineGeneral frontline one]]]]. The same goes to Colonel Bais.



* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:General Garneaux tried to forcibly procure the serum, supposedly to help with a food crisis. But in reality, he wanted to destroy it in order to implement a policy of selective starvation all in the name of power.]]



* PutOnABus: [[spoiler:Mark and Cynthia in the [=PS2=] game, having left Gaia for Earth. They are replaced by Fox and Asaka, respectively]].
* PuttingOnTheReich: CONSENT officers, including Jack and Garneaux, wear [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany Nazi]]-esque, [[UsefulNotes/EastGermany East German]], Federation, ''and'' Zeon-ish uniforms throughout the movie. Some of their medals resemble French 11th Parachute Brigade badges, too.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Gaia's Chief Counsellor, who is Cynthia's father. Garneaux also appears to be this the first time we see him, having a friendly chat with Mark. [[spoiler:But the more we see of him, [[SubvertedTrope not so much]]]]. In the [=PS2=] game, we have the Illuminati's commander, Ben.



* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:Garneaux sealed his fate when he decided to steal a Gaian spacecraft to escape [[PoorCommunicationKills and doesn't notify]] [[SelfOffense the nearby CONSENT forces about it]].]].
* WhamLine: In the video game:
--> '''Rysis''': [[spoiler:Race... The bug is identified... It must be deleted...]]
--> '''Reed''': [[spoiler:Bug...? Raven, is a [[MechaMooks Mobile Weapon]]!?]]

* CanonDiscontinuity: Downplayed. Sunrise has said "we don't like to talk about G-Saviour" in the past, and they haven't mentioned it since. However, Gundam doesn't have a strict wall between "canon" and "non-canon," and it hasn't been explicitly contradicted by anything made since, either.

The movie is centered on Mark Curran (Brennan Elliott), a former CONSENT Mobile Suit pilot who finds himself fighting for the Illuminati when he was framed for the murder of a prison guard by his rival and former supreme commander, Jack Halle (John Lovgren) during a food crisis which has struck most of humanity. In addition, he must protect the only key to ending the crisis; a bioluminescent energy formula powerful enough to sustain plant life and create an agricultural breakthrough.

** The real justification is that the Gaian Freedoms are piloted by civilians with no piloting skills or experience, and their CONSENT enemies are well-trained professional mobile suit pilots.
