  • Trivia

    • The Heavyarms in Trowa's flashback looks the same as the upgraded Heavyarms Kai. Kajime had redesigned Heavyarms for "Endless Waltz," but it not seen here.

    • Late in the movie when Heero shows up over Marimeia's fortress the damaged Wing Zero Custom has its immense twin buster rifle with it. How is this possible? When the Wing Zero Custom was fighting the Nataku Custom in space it never had its buster rifle anywhere. So how could it possibly have it now?

      It's safe to rule out the Transformers subspace theory. It's possible that Heero left the weapon on Earth, but the chances of it being anywhere near Marimeia's fortress are slim to impossible.

      So the goof still remains. How the heck did that happen?

  • Notes

    • Each of the Gundams are given a more spectacular re-design for this send-off for Gundam Wing by artist Katoki Hajime, and are treated as though they have always looked this way. Hajime would later go back and give the original Gundams redesigns as well, with the exception of Sandrock, which was identical in appearance to the Sandrock Kai and thus did not need a redesign.

    • The plan for the original 'Operation Meteor' is the same as 'Operation Stardust Memory' in the spinoff of Moblie Suit Gundam, Gundam 0083.

    • In addition to Episode Zero, there is a comic happening between the series and this OVA. It's called Blind Target, in which the Gundam pilots and Relena must stop a group who want to capture the gundams to use for their own agenda.

    • There is also a manga book on sale here in the US called Gundam Wing Episode Zero which explains more about the Gundam Pilots Past other than what of the Pilots past that is explained here

    • The DVD version not only has the 3 OVA episode version of this movie but also a movie version where there is additional footage, as well as a new ending (same ending as the OVA version just with new footage).
