** The 0 Gundam '''is''' the RX-78-2 Gundam, with clavicle antennae and a GN Drive tacked on. On top of that, the original version is gray, white, and red, which was how YoshiyukiTomino wanted the Gundam to look. Infamously, he was [[ExecutiveMeddling over-riden by the sponsors]] and forced to make the Gundam more colorful, resulting in the iconic tricolor look...which shows up on the Actual Combat Deployment version of the 0 Gundam[[note]]For the curious, Tomino's original color scheme was later adopted as the Gundam's rollout colors, inverting the dynamic that would appear with the 0 Gundam[[/note]].

* Various aspects of ''Gundam 00'''s storyline and technology are apparent analogues to elements from the Bandai-Namco-Sunrise group's own TalesSeries, particularly VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia.

Added DiffLines:

** Additionally, his Alvaaron has a head that looks similar to ones that come with [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam GM]]s.


* Trans-Am, which turns the machine using it red and increases its output threefold, is clearly a reference to the infamous [[{{Memes/Gundam}} Gundam meme]] about [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Char Aznable's]] red Zaku being three times faster than the normally colored version.

* Ribbons' Gundams contain several gags as an ActorAllusion, since his voice actor also played [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Amuro]] [[CharsCounterattack Ray]]:

* The Gadessa and the Garazzo are fairly similar (in both tactical function and equipment) to the Mercurius and Vayeate of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]''.

* Alejandro Corner's obsession with anything gold-colored is the same as [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Dorothy Catalonia's]] own obsession with gold-colored transports.
* The GN Flag is a ShoutOut to the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Epyon]] with its beam sword connected to the GN[T] drive.

Added DiffLines:

*** When the 0 Gundam runs low in GN Particles after firing its beam gun far too many times, the visual representation of its particle gauge is an updated version of the RX-78-2 Gundam's energy cap meter after doing the same thing to its beam rifle.

* The party scene from season two, in addition to being one long ShoutOut to ''Anime/TurnAGundam'', also contains a brief reference to a similar scene that occurred in the very first ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Gundam 0079]]'' with Tieria being annoyed by a pair of suck-ups in a manner similar to his fellow purple-haired {{Bishonen}} Garma Zabi.

** The Reborns Gundam draws heavily from the Nu Gundam, but also has elements of the Guncannon, which Amuro piloted on occasion. This is taken a step further by an MSV version, Reborns Gundam Origin, which adds a Tank Mode as a nod to the Guntank. Its fangs are called "fin fangs", for no discernible reason other than to continue the gag.
** Arguably, Ribbons going bare-knuckle in the final battle with Setsuna could be a nod to ''Char's Counterattack'', and how Amuro and Char's duel eventually breaks down into giant robot brawling.

* Those that have quantum brainwaves sometimes get [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Newtype flashes]].
* The Gadessa and the Garazzo are fairly similar (in both tactical function and equipment) to the Mercurius and Vayeate of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]''.
** With Garazzo's spikes and shoulder shield being yet another Zaku homage.
* Joshua Edwards from Alaska may be a reference to ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Gundam SEED]]'', where the Earth Alliance's main base in Alaska was named JOSH-A (pronounced "Joshua").
* The Regnant in its mobile suit form bears at least passing resemblance to the Quebeley from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]''.
* The Gaga (with the booster attached) looks similar to the Neue Ziel from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory Gundam 0083]]''.
** This gag is pushed even further when the Gagas start to [[spoiler:kamikaze themselves]], especially on battleships, since [[spoiler:Anavel Gato died by]] doing that with his Neue Ziel against a Federation battleship.
* Goodman's futile attempt to outrun a beam blast heading for the bridge of his ship is almost identical to the same attempt by Jamaican Daninghan in ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]''. They even have similar OhCrap faces.
* A scene in ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'', where Yazan and two other Titans tie up a Rick Dias, is redone ad verbatim when Virtue is captured in the tenth episode of the first season.
* Seravee's GN Bazooka II is without a doubt a shout out to [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Wing Zero's]] [[WaveMotionGun Twin Buster Rifle]].
* The first compilation movie adds a homage to the Deathscythe Hell Custom from ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Endless Waltz]]'', courtesy of Dynames.
