* RealitySubtext: Zeon Deikun's more violent, insane and generally unflattering portrayal compared to the sagely figure described in the original series was motivated by the Aum Shinrikyo cult's infamous terrorist attacks. Yasuhiko [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone felt partially responsible]] for the attacks for having worked on ''Gundam'' as the series, particularly the idea of Newtypes, helped popularize New Age mysticism in Japan, ultimately leading people to become interested in "[[{{Cult}} New Religious Movements]]" like Aum Shinrikyo and their twisted visions of a bringing about a new era.

*** Speaking of which, Char and Sayla's mom is named after the same Greek goddess as the Astrea Gundam, a prototype of the Exia from the spinoff manga ''00P''.


* AdaptationalContextChange: Kai and Hayato's reasoning for abandoning White Base are altered both to make them more sympathetic and to incorporate the changed plot. In the original series they were angry that Amuro wasn't being punished for betraying everyone and opted to defect. Here it's only part of the reason and the catalyst for their defection is actually the suspicion that Sayla was a Zeon spy. Kai feels that the revelation means that they've been compromised causing Ryu to counter that Kai's just using this as an excuse to act on his cowardice. Hayato in turn brings up that he and Kai were just civilians pressed into service; and the danger mixed in with their distrust for the higher ups is justification enough to leave.


* TheOtherDarrin: Creator/MegumiHan replaces Creator/YouInoue in the role of Artesia/Sayla, due to ActorExistenceFailure. Also, Creator/MamiKoyama has been replaced by Creator/AkenoWatanabe in the role of Kycilia. Averted in the case of Char's and Gihren's voice actors.

* TheOtherDarrin: Creator/MegumiHan Given the decades-long gap, everyone except for Amuro, Char, Kai, and Gihren.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In the cover gallery, Yashuiko states that one of the plans for the series was to end up replacing the Guncannon's with GM's after the team made it to Jaburo. He ended up simply bringing in more advanced Guncannons because the MS was always one of his favorites though the White Base also takes on a couple of GM's as well.


* FranchiseKiller: At least for the OVA adaptations: The series will ultimately end after the 6th Episode, resulting in a bleak chances for a possible 0079 Remake for the franchise's 40th anniversary.

Added DiffLines:

** The MS-04, which was previously known simply as the "Prototype Zaku" or "Zaku Zero" in [[AllThereInTheManual MSV sourcebooks]], is re-christened the "Bugu", a name already used for the Zaku-descended MechaMooks in the highly unpopular ''Film/GSaviour''.
** General Revil's re-translated middle name, Ibrahim, is the same as Setsuna's real surname in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00''.

* ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy: In contrast to the unique redesigns most of the mobile suits got, ]]''Origin'''s Zeong is simply a rehash of the original (albeit with sleeker proportions than the anime version) due to Yasuhiko using one of the more recent model kits as a reference (although in this version its cockpit is located in its collar rather than its head).
