A series of short films packaged with certain model kits and aired at conventions, the Gundam Evolve series chronicles a number of side-stories, alternative scenes, and even bonus omake from all around the Gundam canon. Featuring a mix of animation media—from traditional cels to 3-D CG rendering to even cel-shaded 2-D animation—these often 5–8 minute shorts cover such events as Domon Kasshu's training (and a bit of a romantic tift with Rain Mikamura) from G Gundam, Amuro Ray battling Quess Paraya from Char's Counterattack, Kamille Bidan training in the Gundam Mk.II from Zeta Gundam, and Canard Pars dueling Prayer Reverie from the Gundam SEED X Astray manga.

Gundam Evolve is mostly a bonus treat for diehard Gundam fans as it creates shorts focusing on story elements found from a number of past titles in the Gundam franchise as a whole. A number of the shorts will be recognizable to seasoned Gundam anime fans as titles such as Zeta Gundam, G Gundam and Gundam Wing get their focus; while some others are from more obscure sources that were never released outside Japan like the Gundam SEED X Astray manga series. The shorts don't add anything new to the established mythos of their respective titles as they exist either for nostalgia value to fans or to reimagine a number of key scenes from the Universal Century timeline. Also, the majority of the shorts are rendered in CGI animation which looks dated and have its issues with rendering human characters, even with the impressively fluid movement they show off. Overall, Gundam Evolve is mostly a series that caters to seasoned Gundam fans as those new to the franchise are likely to get lost with the various nods to different titles of the franchise.
