• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Just as there are quite a few official Gundam series, there are quite a few Abridged Series based on them.

G Gundam

IDLITstudios's Series

File:Ggundam announcer.jpg

More terrible than the most Humongous Mecha

Although it has a few episodes, the series is already popular in the abridging community, and the announcer has even become a shared running gag. Also notable for its extensive use of background music. On hiatus as IDLIT's computer broke down. Is now confirmed as officially canceled due to a recent video posted by IDLIT, although the video was taken down very soon after it was aired, so there might still be a possibility of the series being revived.

This show provides examples of:

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Wouldn't be an Abridged Series without it! Notably, Chibodee Crockett, Kyoji, and Rain.
    • Also, Domon and Rain's relationship is portrayed as abusive (Domon) and one-sided (Rain)
  • Brown Note : Schwartz Brude...
  • Fetish: Possibly. Domon really seems to like it when his suit is put on.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Domon refuses to see that the Rose Gundam pilot is a guy.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: "Sir, the Shining Gundam is... shining."
  • Noodle Incident: Apparently the reason Domon left Neo Japan and is afraid/abusive of Rain was because she made an advance on him as a child.
    • There's also the reason Domon hates baguette...
  • Only Six Faces: "Damn it! They both look identical! Stupid cheap animators!"
  • Running Gag (The Announcer)
    • Also the sounds of Domon snapping his fingers when he says, "Rise Shining Gundam", in episode 5, he snapped his fingers and the sound accompanied with it was Goku from Dragonball, saying, "Taiyo-ken!!"
  • Selective Obliviousness: Nothing can convince Domon that George is a man. Nothing.
  • Shout-Out: To Berserk Abridged, BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad, Naruto, Medabots, Dragonball Z, and World of Warcraft.
  • Theme Music Power-Up: Happens nearly Once an Episode, including such things as "Chicks Dig Giant Robots" and "American Idiot".

Gundam Wing

GWingTAS's Series

Created several years ago, Gundam Wing Abridged follows the misadventures of the Gundam pilots as they deal with Ho Yay, Alternate Character Interpretation, and Lampshade Hanging galore. Has its own website now (which is nice, since YouTube suspended his account for copyvio) and and over twenty episodes, and making it one of the Long Runners of the abridged arena.

This show provides examples of:

Mobile Suit Gundam The 08th MS Team

[1] Series

This show provides examples of:

  • Running Gag: Shiro making use of videogame skills in the battlefield while saying better put my x skills to use. Wouldn't want to play Contra with him.

Mobile Suit Gundam

Gutted Wren Studios' Series

This show provides examples of:

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Many of the characters are exaggerated versions of themselves, but perhaps the biggest change is Haro, who was designed by Amuro "to keep Frau away from [him]." Did I mention Haro's voice is clips of G La DOS from Portal?
    • And Amuro is practically a basket case.
      • His father issues are taken to extremes, and often lead to rampages on the battlefield.
    • Dozle Zabi is a borderline Adult Child. After Garma bites it, Dozle goes to his dad for 'upsies'.
  • Black Comedy Rape: At the end of episode eight, when the ship was a mile high up.
  • Camp Gay: Garma, and all his men, too.
  • Captain Oblivious: "Bu-but, I don't believe Garma was gay!"
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Bright delivers one in episode 14 when Mirai points out that if the Gundam's reactor detonates, it could take out White Base too.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: So many.
    • The scene in which Bright slaps Amuro for refusing to pilot the Gundam:

 Amuro: "My own hit never fathered me!"

Bright: "Well, maybe he should have!"


 Degwin: "Look, if I need advice on how to turn a litter of kittens into a sweater, then I'll come to you."

Kycilia: "It was two litters, and it was a coat. And you did think it looked rather cute on me."

Degwin: "That it did, my Dear, that it did."


 Commander Wakkein:Those kids are too paranoid. Even the Red Comet wouldn't think to attack such a fortified position like Luna II.

  • cut to Char*

Char: We're attacking the fortified position known as Luna II.


 "It was the 400 hours I spent on Steel Battalion."

  • Immune to Bullets: Char can't be hit because he's wearing pink.
    • "Allow me to reiterate my previous statement that your weapons are ineffective against me based on my pigmentation."
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: The DNA evidence gag hints that Bright could be Amuro's real dad.
  • Only Sane Employee: Bright does not like having to manage a crew of angsty teenagers.
  • Red Shirt: "But I'm wearing blue!"
  • Running Gag: "That's disgusting."
    • D N A Evidence.
    • A few episodes would end with any character saying "Wait..." after coming to sudden realization.
    • Anger Sayla and she'll shoot you in the crotch.
    • Allusions to sexual intercourse.
    • Ramba Ral and his Zeon forces mispronouncing "Earth phenomena", such as lightning as "litning", desert as "deesart" and Gundam as "Goondam".
  • Sampling: Part of the Speedy Techno Remake of the original show's theme.
  • Shout-Out: Many.
  • Soundtrack Dissonance: The most intense battles are coupled with unfitting, yet upbeat, music.
  • Talk Like a Pirate: Mirai, no matter how much she's asked to stop. She's just as confused about it as everyone else.

 Mirai: Sir, don't look at me like that. It's involuntary! Yar! I be cursed!

    • She doesn't do it when the crew is on vacation, though. When it's clearly over, she starts up again, much to Sayla's relief.
    • It might be the Minovsky Particles. Since when are they harmless?
  • The Alcoholic: Dren.
  • The Stoic: Also Dren, who's voice never wavers from its bored monotone, even in combat. Also functions as the Deadpan Snarker, with extra deadpan.
