* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Char loves his sister and Lalah, as much as he can. The problems are 1) he's got [[TheSociopath a pretty limited capacity]] and 2) he has no problem with things like them unnecessarily being in combat on the frontlines. Char having a screwed-up idea of love is something that continues in his other appearances.

* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: Something famous, anyway. One of the most famous fighter planes of WorldWarTwo, the Kawanishi [=N1K2=]-J, also known as the ''"Shiden (紫電 "Violet Lightning")-Kai (modified)"''. Possibly why his hair is sometimes [[DependingOnTheArtist drawn as purple]].

* CelibateHero: Doesn't kiss anyone, doesn't get into a romantic relationship with anyone, and shows no real interest in either, perfectly happy one-sidedly crushing on Matilda from a distance. Averted hard with [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam the sequel]], but by then he's no longer [[DemotedToExtra the hero]].

* TheDreaded: The Gundam starts out from the beginning as a terror among Zeon forces for having such incredibly high specs, durability, and armament that it can mop the floor with anything Zeon has available at that point, even with a total newbie at the controls. Once Amuro gets ''good'' at piloting it, they give the gundam a name - [[NicknamingTheEnemy The White Devil]].

** QuirkyCurls: Downplayed and SeventiesHair, complete with sideburns, but his curly hair's not only unusual in the show but in anime in general. Part of his iconic look.



** ItGetsEasier: Amuro goes through some fairly serious and absolutely justified PTSD over the first half of the show or so, given that he's the lynchpin of major combat with absolutely no preparation, and ThereAreNoTherapists when you're in a lone ship caught in enemy territory. After his desertion and the events with Ramba Ral, while still remaining a sensitive and fairly kind person, he finally seems to adjust to being part of the ship and his role. It gets to the point where [[spoiler: he actually gets over Lalah's death fairly quickly at the time]].
* ILetGwenStacyDie: [[spoiler:Lt. Matilda and Lalah.]] He eventually gets over the former; he seemingly does with the latter, but she comes back to haunt him.

** UnusualEyebrows: Pretty subtle, but they have more of a frowning slant than anyone else's; the effect gives him a bit of a permanently-pissed look on his face 95% of the time. Integral to his character design, and so unusual that no one else in the entire franchise has ever had them.



* LoveAtFirstSight: With Lalah. Likely justified as each was the first strong Newtype the other had met, and they felt an instant connection that could easily be misconstrued as love.

It's only TheReveal in the last arc that shows the intensity of his resentment and his own lack of self-confidence.

* AsianAndNerdy: Katz is said to help the others with their homework towards the end of ''Origin'''s flashback arc.



** Special mention goes to Letz who [[UnreliableNarrator claims]] to have stolen a car once back on Side 7.



* HourglassPlot: By the time we see them again in the sequel, Katz - the SmartGuy of the group - has become a hot-headed teenager itching to prove himself and constantly screws up due to his inexperience and hopeless crush on enemy pilot Sarah Zabiarov. Letz and Kikka, by contrast, have mellowed out considerably.
* MixedAncestry: Kikka's got a Japanese last name and the bluest, Asian-looking eyes, and blondest hair you'll ever see, so this seems very likely.

* MixedAncestry: Kikka's got a Japanese last name and the bluest, Asian-looking bluest eyes, and blondest hair you'll ever see, so this seems very likely.



* SadClown: Letz is the biggest prankster of the three, and has also had the hardest life, having been and orphan since before the attack on Side 7. His father was a Federation soldier who died in the Battle of Loum and his mother died of an illness not long after.



* AdaptationalVillainy: While he's almost always shown as a jerkass, Char is shown to be an even more heinous figure in ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamTheOrigin''. Not only is his smug condescension cranked up, but Char is even more sociopathic and manipulative as he persuades several impoverished Amazonians into helping Zeon while falsely promising not to infringe on their cultural ways. Even as a boy, he shows no empathy or horror over brutally killing his enemies, much to the horror of his sister.



* DeadPersonImpersonation: According to the manga retelling ''Manga/MobileSuitGundamTheOrigin'', the ''real'' Char Anzable was a childhood friend of his whom he closely resembled. When they both tried to reach Zeon, Char to enter the military academy and Casval ostensibly to enter a school there and find a job, Kycilia ordered 'Edward Mass' (Casval) assassinated, destroying the transport he was to take to Zeon. However, Casval had noticed Kycilia's men and convinced Char to switch clothing and papers at the spaceport, so Char died under Casval's not-very secret identity while Casval enlisted in Zeon's military under Char's.



* IcyBlueEyes: A very important part of his past: [[spoiler:The real Char Aznable, whom Casval resembled and whose name he took after the former was killed, had brown eyes. Since they looked exactly alike in every way except for their eyes, Casval wears a mask to hide his eyes when he joins the Zeon military as "Char Aznable".]]



* ItsPersonal: With Amuro. They become mortal enemies after the tragic death of Lalah, who has been so dear to both of them.
* {{Jerkass}}: Even in his most sympathetic moments, Char still comes off as kind of an asshole. Hell, his ''Origin'' background pretty much cranks up his callousness and depicts him being ruthless enough to send innocents to their deaths in order to sever any loose end that would jeopardize his path of vengeance.

Still [[RuleOfCool the most popular character]] of vengeance. the franchise, though.



* OpportunisticBastard: Char's a competent planner, and is able to stay a step ahead of most people, but he's more of a short-term opportunist than a long-term schemer, and more often than not is flying by the seat of his pants. In ''MSG'' he's out to kill the Zabis, but has no real plan for doing it--instead he just hangs around with them, hoping to get the chance to murder them. In the end he's able to get [[spoiler:Garma and Kycilia]] but never even gets a shot at [[spoiler:Degwin, Dozle, or Gihren.]]

He contacts Garma to brag and laugh at him before he dies, then ditches everybody under his command and deserts. He's one hell of an UngratefulBastard to Kycilia later, and he's very cruel and coldblooded even to his own sister, showing almost no concern for her welfare as opposed to her anguish for him. It's part of being TheSociopath, but Char never makes a sincere apology or shows regret about ''anything'', rationalizing whatever he does as part of war, vengeance, or being someone else's fault.

They don't have a very big role in the series proper but according to two (possibly non-canon) books, one a design album by mecha designer Kunio Okawara as well as the novel ''Four's Story: And To A Soldier...'', they were taken in by the Federation military after Miharu's death and eventually wound up in the custody of the sinister [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Murasame Newtype Lab]]...

On a lighter note they also appear in the parodic ''GundamSan'' series, in which they try to use the money the Zeons paid the family to open a business.
----
* DisproportionateRetribution: Turned into human guinea pigs because their sister helped some enemy spies.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Gil is mentioned in an ''MSV'' segment to have been killed off-screen in a training accident with the Psycho Gundam Zero, though he later gets a major role in ''Four's Story''. Millie doesn't even get that much, having apparently been one of the many test subjects who couldn't survive the process of becoming an Artificial Newtype.
* HeartWarmingOrphan: Their original appearance borders on {{Glurge}}.
%%* OrphansOrdeal: Whoa, daddy...
* PsychicPowers: Not in the original series, but later on.
* SuperSoldier: Gil is turned into one against his will. And he was the lucky one.
%%* TykeBomb
* YouAreNumberSix: Gil is rechristened as Three Murasame.

* MilitaryMaverick: The initial one of the franchise, maybe even of the entire RealRobot genre. Completely justified because he's an untrained, shanghaied high-schooler who naturally wants to rely on his TeenGenius abilities to get him out of things. CharacterDevelopment makes him more cooperative and a better soldier, but the anti-authoritarian, highly individualistic attitude he brought in with him never goes away. Amuro likes his comrades; not the military. This stays consistent.



* ProperlyParanoid: As observed by BigNameFan Mark Simmons; examples include "They're gonna take the Gundam away from me!" and (in [[WhatCouldHaveBeen the original series plan]]) "Bright's girlfriend is a Zeon spy!" This also extends to ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'' ("The Federation is watching me through my waitstaff!") and ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack'' ("Char's [[ISurrenderSuckers only pretending to surrender]]!") What makes him fall under this trope is, '''he's always right'''.
