SD Gundam Gaiden consists of the following tropes:

  • And Now for Someone Completely Different: Episode 3 focuses on Amuro helping another kingdom.
  • Fusion Dance: As it turns out, Knight Gundam and Satan Gundam were once one being, Superior Dragon.
  • Non-Indicative Name: In Episode 2, Fairy Kika swears that the giant that the villians are controlling is usually benevolent. Said giant's name is "Psyco Golem". Okay sure, it's based off of the Psyco Gundam, but seriously, would you trust someone named "Psyco Golem"?

How well does it match the trope?
