- Adaptation Displacement: There are a large amount of people who wouldn't have known this even existed if not for Robotech.
- Designated Villain: This may have been the entire point of the series as the humans on Earth—at least in well-developed urban areas—lived in relative peace despite being invaded by Inbits along with leaving the colonies on Mars and other planets alone even if they have a tendency to commit Disproportionate Retribution any opposition towards them. This act as a Foreshadowing to their revelation as aliens with a lost homeworld and a moral lesson on the need of communications between two groups to prevent needless violence over an issue.
- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Mospeada is actually relatively obscure in its native Japan, and only achieved popularity in America due to its inclusion in Robotech.
- Narm: The killer's titular nickname from 21st Episode, "Rainy Boy", came off as weird and hilarious despite his dreaded nature and his suffering from being made into a Cyborg by the Inbits.
