  • Executive Meddling: In an interview with a fansite, Mark Gatha (Domon's English VA) said that the cast felt that the first 20 episodes were kind of rough because they hadn't gotten a feel for their characters yet, and really wanted to redub those episodes after finishing production. However, Bandai wouldn't let them.
    • The show itself was an attempt at this. Imagawa was hired to direct it as he was rather new to the idea of directing and Sunrise thought that now that Tomino was no longer at the helm, they could control the new guy and use him to just push new toys. They didn't realize that Imagawa doesn't take "no" for an answer when it comes to creative control over his work.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: It's not that the anime isn't available on DVD, it's just you have to be ready to fork over a good chunk of your life's savings on the used DVD market. And don't even think that you can try to save some money by buying the complete first and second collections. Right Stuf finally announced that there would be a wide release on DVD and BluRay in 2018, hopefully mitigating the issue somewhat.
  • Relationship Voice Actor: For the English dub, Domon's, Allenby's and the announcer's voice actors are the same ones who voice Irvine, Fiona and Colonel Kreugar. In fact, many people who worked on Zoids: Chaotic Century lended their voices for this show.
    • Likewise, Domon's and Master Asia's voice actors are X and Sigma, respectively, in Mega Man X8 and Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X and its accompanying OVA.
  • What Could Have Been: As noted on the character page, Dr. Mikamura was originally going to be part of the Big-Bad Ensemble with Ulube and the Devil Gundam. However, the director couldn't see a character with Motomu Kiyokawa's voice being one of the main villains, so he instead made Mikamura pull a Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Word of God: The DVD sets have the "G-Files," which are interviews with series director Yasuhiro Imagawa. They explain some of the thought process behind plots (the episode with Saette being inspired by a Turkish film), Gundam design (two of them were winners from a kids' fan contest and he would sometimes giggle when handing a new design to the animators), and why the series is as it is: "we decided early on to ignore what makes sense in favor of if it looks cool."
