* OccamsRazor: While [[FridgeBrilliance Char probably ''does'' find it more physically comfortable to cover his eyes]] since they're so light and sun-sensitive and he ''is'' lacking in pigment... [[SubvertedTrope yeah, that's not why he's doing it.]] (How would you have to worry about UV radiation [[CaptainObvious inside or at night??)]]

Added DiffLines:

** Weirdly happens to Crowley Hamon within the manga itself. In a flashback to Zeon Deikun and Astraia's first meeting she appears to be in her early teens but looks much younger in the prequel chapter depicting Char's birth.


** Kycilia goes from a cold, calculating Chessmaster who nonetheless wants what's best for her nation and loves her father to a ManipulativeBitch who'll do anything to get on top, including [[spoiler:manipulating Gihren into killing Degwin for her and then killing him to "avenge" their father]]. She is also responsible for [[spoiler:the assassination of Jimba Ral and the attempted assassinations of Char and Sayla. In her second attempt on Char's life, Kycilia arranges to to have ''an entire passenger ship'' Char is supposedly riding in destroyed.]]

Added DiffLines:

** The Gundam's new optional cannon is based on one of the spring-loaded missile launchers that came with the original 1979 [[ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy die-cast action figure]].


** The Biggro Mobile Armor is reduced to a cameo at the evacuation of A Baoa Qu. The dialogue even cracks a joke about it when Sakioka tries to drag it with him when the Base is evacuated.

** Even Garma and Dozle, the two most sympathetic Zabis in canon are given a few additional KickTheDog moments. Though they're ''still'' [[BlackAndGreyMorality more heroic]] than either Kycilia or Gihren.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Inverted for Saslo Zabi. While he never appears in the series proper, some supplementary materials have him looking like an older [[{{Bishounen}} Garma]]. In this he looks like [[{{Gonk}} a younger Degwin]].

* SpaceIsNoisy: As usual for Gundam. Special mention goes to Sayla's arrival at A Baoa Qu where she states that she can hear their Mobile Suits making landfall.



* SparedByTheAdaptation: At the end of the original MSG all three main Mobile Suits; Amuro's Gundam, Kai's Guncannon, and either Hayato's Guntank (series) or Guncannon (compilation movies), are destroyed in the finale. While the Gundam still meets its end fighting the Zeong, the Guncannons make it out of the final battle and are used to help evacuate the main characters.

** Of the Zeon's grunt suits, the Gogg ends up in a much smaller role. It was a semi-common grunt in the original whereas here only one Gogg appears (doing so in Ireland) and they don't join in on the attack of Jaburo.

Added DiffLines:

* DemotedToExtra: The Manga expands considerably on numerous minor characters or plot points but a couple are cut down in this adaptation.
** M'Quve is the most notable major character to end up in a reduced role. While he was a major antagonist on Earth, here he's in the background for the most part and does not engage the Gundam in the Adzam. It's not until Volume 7 that he has significant character focus and Volume 8 when he actually steps up as a major threat. The author even remarks on this when discussing the covers admitting to really wanting his send-off in Volume 8 to make up for his reduced role.

Added DiffLines:

->''The Earth Sphere had begun a headlong race into chaos and darkness...''

Added DiffLines:

** Garma's customized, head-vulcan equipped Zaku II from the MSV series is nowhere in sight when he participates in the partisan mop-up operations in the early days of the war. Instead, he commands a squad of normal Zakus from a Gallop class landship.

Added DiffLines:

** In the manga, the RX-78-02's intended pilot, Lt. Willie Kemp, is unceremoniously killed by an explosion on his way to the hangar without uttering a single line. In the sixth movie, Amuro gets to briefly meet him while investigating his father's work at the military base.


Added DiffLines:

** In ''Artesia: 0083'', Sayla has tracked down Gil and Milly Ratokie and set them up with a decent foster home. In the original continuity ([[AllThereInTheManual at least according to some obscure novels and sourcebooks]]) they were used as test subjects by the Murasame Newtype Lab, where Gil (rechristened Three Murasame) died while testing a prototype Psycho Gundam and Milly didn't even survive the grueling process of being converted into an Artificial Newtype.
