* OffTheRails: This is the whole point of the quest, at least in terms of official UC Canon.
* OhCrap: Pretty much everyone's reaction to seeing a Gundam. Also, realizing that destroying half of Jaburo caused the Federation to begin mass production of Trojan Horses.
* PaperThinDisguise: [[spoiler:Elaine]]'s home colony did not allow women to enlist in the army, so she dons a fake mustache(of dubious quality) and enlists as a man. Although she managed to have her identity go unquestioned through sheer luck, when being interviewed for recruitment by Natcherman, David saw through it immediately.
* PuttingOnTheReich: Ghiren and anyone remotely associated with him. Apologized seems to treat the rest of Zeon more like WWI Germany.
* RealRobot: Obviously, given the source material.
* RedBaron: In addition to the well-known Red Comet and White Devil, we have '''EL MUERTO GIGANTE''', and the One-Armed Bandit.
* SensorSuspense: Apologized loves doing these to make everyone crap themselves.
* SuperPrototype: The Act-Zaku could be considered one.
** Lister also tests a number of different high-end prototypes, although some of these are less powerful than their mass-produced versions.
* TankGoodness: Lister has killed so many tanks that it is physically impossible for Apologized to count them all.
* TheRival: Bandit. [[spoiler:The Midnight Pixy Death Squad was intended to be this to Nachtmaren, but failed miserably. [[FromBadToWorse Then they got the EXAM system...]]]]
* [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks Throwing your axe always works]]: If you're Zolomon Ringo, that is.
** [[spoiler: [[RealityEnsues Except when it doesn't.]]]]
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:Garma is the best example, but Bernie too]]
** [[spoiler:The Midnight Pixy Death Squad is a slightly less heroic example]]
* WarIsHell
* WarriorHeaven: [[spoiler:Zolomon's fate after his death: to fight eternally alongside Super Robot greats. Implied to be Lister's eventual fate as well.]]
** [[spoiler: Within that place exist those men who would fight and win against those impossible odds. Betwixt cataclysmic vista's stretches [[GetterRobo the impossibly huge arm of a giant humanoid machine, beams of green light the width of the moon stretch out from it's forehead and engulf whole species leaving naught but ruin.]] [[{{Diebuster}} To the left a woman the height of jupiter clutches a quantum singularity to her breast]] and in her shadow [[TengenToppaGurrenLagann fights with reckless abandon a machine powered by unshakable faith in it's victory strikes with a weapon that drills a gouge in the belly of the God of Nucleonic Fusion sending spiraling protogalaxies spilling forth like blood from it's wound]]. [[RahXephon The god of clay sings the song that ends and begins all things]] and [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion the beast with a single horn howls in rage as it consumes god]]. In the middle of the maelstrom of battle a shining star is found, that shining star clarifies into a figure. The figure is a knight, it's armor is resplendent, it carries a beam lance in one hand and shield in the other. It zigs and zags through a spray of acid issued forth from winged ant the size of a small moon. Each globule of acid the size of large asteroids. The figure closes, and swings it's lance, but now it is an axe of light, easily hundreds upon hundreds of miles long and wide, in a flash the creatures is split lengthways and the tiny spark of light continues on it's way. Afore it lies the god of the foul sign, a shifting symbol of manifest madness. The Knight raises his now lance again, and hurls it at God. And god dies. And then, in a thousand voices that speak as one, the voice of a thousand men call out to you. "We'll be waiting for you... Nachtmaren 1."]]
