* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: This series milks the WarIsHell trope for all its worth. The story is pretty Grimdark even for Universal Century standards, as both sides do quite a few horrible things in order to prevail.

* RootingForTheEmpire: At least in the first season of the anime, it's a lot easier to feel sympathy for the Zeon side when Daryl is a kind-hearted soldier just doing his duty for his homeland. And on the Federation side, Io is a PoliticallyIncorrectHero who repeatedly mocks Daryl's prosthetics, and is a BloodKnight who gleefully engages in MookHorrorShow. Averted in the second season, where Io is portrayed more positively, and both sides share an enemy in the absolutely repugnant South Seas Alliance.
