* GenreSavvy: Degwin's attempt to insult Ghiren by comparing him to Hitler does backfire as Ghiren takes it as a compliment. Neverthless, Degwin muses to himself that "Hitler's own followers eventually wanted to kill him".

%%* {{Bishonen}}

to:

%%* {{Bishonen}}* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Among the Zabis; he is noticeably the most conventionally attractive as well as sympathetic of his siblings.
* {{Bishonen}}: The original anime's art style doesn't make his attractiveness as obvious, but side material and later illustrations indicate that he's meant to be quite pretty in comparison to other characters.

* ComicBookFantasyCasting: A rather amusing aversion. The story goes that Tomino was a fan of ''{{Film/Rocky}}'' and wanted Sleggar to look "like that American movie star Creator/SylvesterStallone". The problem was that character designer Yoshikazu Yasuhiko has no idea what Stallone looked like and because of the show's infamously tight production schedule he was unable to procure a decent reference photo before the deadline. Eventually he just threw up his hands and drew the most generic American movie star-type character he could think of and the rest is history.



%%* LanternJawOfJustice

to:

%%* LanternJawOfJustice* LanternJawOfJustice: Probably has something to do with being entirely based on the image that runs through a Japanese person's head when he hears the words "American movie star".


Added DiffLines:

* PhenotypeStereotype: Yasuhiko wanted him to look American and he certainly succeeded.

* WarriorPrince: Gihren's [[NonActionGuy no fighter]], but given how vital a role he plays in the Zeon war effort it would be difficult not to class him as this.

TheRival: To Amuro.

%%*
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: His initial incentive to fight alongside the Zabi family is to take power out of their hands, by any means necessary. [[spoiler: This is because Degwin - the Zabi family head - both murdered his father and claimed that said father's last words were "to nominate him as the next prime minister of Zeon", while Char is almost certain his father's last words were "I know it was you who killed me".]] Char understands the need for patience and saving face to achieve this result[[spoiler:, and he gets very close to realizing it]].

SiblingYinYang: Him and SaylaSayla.



* TheStarscream: To the Zabi family. He wants Zeon to win the war, but he doesn't want them to be in charge of it.

* TheStarscream: To the Zabi family. He wants Zeon to win the war, but he doesn't want them to be in charge of it. [[spoiler: Garma Zabi]] suffers first, as Char, playing as a friend and adviser [[spoiler: in his pursuit of the White Base]] betrays him at the last and most crucial moment [[spoiler: by leading Garma's vessel in front of the concealed White Base and exposing his rear wall to a fatal strike from the Federation vessel]]. [[spoiler: He also betrays Kycilia atop the highest stakes for both sides of the war.]] Kycilia Zabi [[spoiler:tried to have him killed as a kid but]], after figuring out his identity gave him a job, restored his rank, gave him a promotion (from Lieutenant to Captain) as well as a ship to command and three new mobile suits (Z'Gok, Gelgoog and Zeong). This fails to loosen the intent to destroy her and her family from his head, [[spoiler: and he repays her with a bazooka to the face.]] In a sense, Kycilia was too pragmatic for her own good; seeing the advantages of Char's abilities and passion yet not recognizing the immediate danger she placed her self in.
