1* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: ''Was'' released on DVD by ADV, but is now out of print due to the company going under. Just ''try'' getting the entire series on DVD. Hell, some scalpers want 125 bucks for the last volume ''alone''.** Internet chatter has it that ''Dunbine'' sold so badly that the print runs were cut down to a few hundred discs for volumes 11 and 12.** [[AvertedTrope Averted]] as of April 2018. Creator/SentaiFilmworks have announced the series for a complete re-release on Blu-ray, with streaming on their HIDIVE service.* NamesTheSame: Marvel Frozen is also the name of a character from the [[Videogame/StarOcean1 first Star Ocean]], which was changed to "Mavelle Froesson" in the localization.* TheOtherDarrin: After the original broadcast, not all the actors returned to portray their characters in subsequent works. Keiko Yokozawa took over from Masako Ikeda as Silkie Mau starting with the sequel OVA ''New Story of Aura Battler''. Whilst Shinobu Adachi filled in for Miki Saijou as Garalia Nyamhee initially just for crossover works such as VideoGame/SuperRobotWars but then later in official Dunbine material such as the animated Pachinko game cutscenes.* ReferencedBy: This series was a mainstay during ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars'''s early years, and was included in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsEX EX]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars4 4/F/FF]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars64 64]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Alpha 1]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact Compact]]'', the ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Compact 2 Trilogy & Impact]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Compact 3]]'', and ''Scramble Commander the 2nd''. After that, [[PutOnABus it disappeared for a while]], then finally returned in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsUX UX]]'', alongside its {{Spinoff}} ''Anime/TheWingsOfRean''. After that, it started showing up more frequently, appearing in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOE OE]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsBX BX]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsX X]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsT T]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsDD DD]]''. ''Dunbine'' is widely considered as the 'Grandaddy of [[TrappedInAnotherWorld Isekai]] [[HumongousMecha Mecha Anime]]' due to this and most shows with similar premises, when appearing in SRW, tend to be accompanied with ''Dunbine''.** Units from ''New Story of Aura Battler Dunbine'' have made appearances in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars4 4]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars64 64]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Compact 2]]'', ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOE OE]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsBX BX]]''. As far as entries where the story/characters are also present, they were first featured in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Compact 3]]'', Silkie showed up as a guest of sorts in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsX X]]'', and she returns in ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsT T]]'' alongside protagonist Shion and BigBad Rabern. Also noteworthy is that ''T'' is not only the first ''SRW'' to try and run both plots and protagonists together in one game, but also marks the debut of the Bellvine, an Aura Battler likely intended to be Shion's MidSeasonUpgrade, but was scrapped from the OVA, and therefore, only appeared in an obscure artbook until now.* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The artbook "Aura Battlers: Aura Fhantasm" reveals that there was supposed to be many more Aura Battlers than just the Sirbine and Zwauth that were seen in the OVA sequel. Like them, the others would have been [[{{Expy}} "replicas"]] built from scraps of the original series mecha (e.g the ''Gargoyle'' would have been based on the Vierres). Their presence also indicates that the story of the OVA was likely meant to be longer and involved more characters than it ended up doing.
