Added DiffLines:

* MisaimedMarketing: A number of Ideon toys, [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids marketed for children]], was produced by Popy before Tomino created the anime series. After the show didn't turn out as Popy expected, Tomino [[https://nekketsunikki.com/2019/07/07/tomino-yoshiyuki-japan-expo-2019-july-6/ warned that this is the lesson for every toy company and that "companies shouldn't make toys before the anime"]].


* [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Nice Job Breaking The Universe Heroes]]: Well duh.

Added DiffLines:

** The titular mecha itself is also crowned as "The King Of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam GMs]]".

Added DiffLines:

* ItWasHisSled: One of the most well known parts of the series is its ending.


* JustForFun/XMeetsY: ''Anime/MazingerZ'' meets ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' meets ''Manga/{{Devilman}}'' (or alternatively, CosmicHorrorStory).

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: "Cantata Orbis", the closing music from ''Be Invoked''. Though we must consider on how ironic the lyrics meant, as how it portrays [[spoiler: glorification of life and God]], all the while [[spoiler: when all the characters are already dead in the end]].

** They're more than likely meant to invoke the look of alien warlords from the days of Flash Gordon and other 30s serials.

* EsotericHappyEnding: [[spoiler: Everyone dies in the most cruel and tragic way, including women and children, after which the explosion of Ideon destroys a huge chunk of the galaxy. And then... the child of Karala and Bess becomes a real messiah and leads the souls of the dead supporters of her mother and father to the newly reborn Earth, where they will be reborn in the new world as Gundam characters. Yes, this is also MindCrew as it sounds.]]

* HilariousInHindsight: So, as Ideon and Franshise/{{Macross}} essentially have the same idea, but told it in a tragic and correspondingly optimistic way, it can be quite fun to watch the first brutally scoff at the idea of ​​PowerOfLove victory over xenophobia and the war between two different peoples.

* TropeCodifier: For the philosophical SpaceOpera with GainaxEnding and DownerEnding. For the latter, this is probably one of the most vivid and memorable examples in anime, taking into account the eastern tragedy and sadness.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Turning a children's show with robots into an extremely tragic-depressing version of Romeo and Juliet with one of the most famous DownerEnding in the history of anime, was obviously not a good idea. But it worked and made this anime a legend, yes.

Added DiffLines:

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: At the time, DownerEnding and MindScrew were so shocking and depressing in this show that ratings began to fall sharply, and the studio reduced the number of episodes. Now his despair is more likely to be treated as MemeticMutation and NarmCharm because of his nature of the "strange old mecha show".
