[[foldercontrol]] ---- [[folder:Celestial Being: Gundam Meisters]] ::'''Setsuna F. Seiei''' The main character of the series. [[ThatManIsDead Formerly known as Soran Ibrahim]], Setsuna is a kid soldier who was recruited in a movement to fight in the name of God, under the guidance of Ali Al-Saachez. As a requirement to do so, Setsuna is told to kill his parents [[spoiler:and does so]]. During the ensuing battle, he was saved by a Gundam and after realizing that Ali is bad, he grows to resent him and war in general, and later on swore to become a Gundam: One who destroys conflict. He is later recruited to the Celestial Beings as a Gundam Meister and pilots Gundam Exia. In the 2nd season, he pilots the titular 00 Gundam. [[spoiler:In the upcomming [[TheMovie movie]], he is set to pilot the 00 Qan[T].]] Setsuna is also neighbors to Saji Crossroad, though his involvement with Celestial Beings strains their normal relationship. He is somehow close to the Azadistan princess Marina Ismail, whom he may consider as a mother or older sister figure. (She happens to look quite a bit like his MissingMom, and has the same voice to boot.) Tropes associated with Setsuna: * [[AlliterativeName Alliterative]] {{Codename}}: If you don't include his middle initial. * AscendedFanboy * {{Asexuality}} * TheAtoner: For being a [[ChildSoldiers child soldier]] and for [[SelfMadeOrphan killing his parents]]. * {{Badass}} * [[spoiler: BashBrothers: With Saji, in the second season. Saji pilots the 0-Raiser, he docks it with Setsuna's 00 Gundam and both mechas form the 00-Raiser]] * BerserkButton: Should you a) threaten the well being of his comrades/friends or b) happen to be Ali Al Saachez, he will be not be amused in the slightest, to put it nicely. * BettyAndVeronica: Marina could be the Betty, while Nena is the Veronica. [[spoiler:And Feldt is the ThirdOptionLoveInterest. After Nena's death, Feldt ''may'' take over as the new Veronica for being more {{fanservice}}y than Marina.]] * BunnyEarsLawyer: Okay, he has severe social problems and thinks he IS his Gundam, but that doesn't stop him from kicking ass. * CargoShip: His [[strike:obsession]] over-attachment to his Gundams led fans to pair him with them. * CatchPhrase: "[[IamTheTrope I AM GUNDAM!]]", "Exterminating the targets!" * CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood --> NeutralGood: He's the most impulsive meister, at least in the first season. In the second, [[CharacterDevelopment he matured a lot and becomes more restrained]]. Yet he will still not hesitate to do the right thing even if others will hate him. * CharacterDevelopment: It's obviously not as extreme as some of the other characters, but its interesting to note the change in attitude over the show, from emotionally repressed, to still stoic, but more caring. His aloofness is now more out of being a veteran of combat and he even dispenses advice to both Saji and Lyle that get them out of their respective funks. Essentially, he's cooler. * ChasteHero: First season. He sneaks into Marina's bedroom ''at night''. Is unable to understand the UnfortunateImplications. ** CelibateHero: Second season. He's more aware of the subject, but still... * [[ChildSoldiers Child Soldier]] * ContemplateOurNavels: Remember when he said he did not want to write a letter to anyone about anything? He lied. * DarkAndTroubledPast * [[spoiler:EleventhHourSuperPower: The Trans-Am Burst which dramatically expands the range of the various abilities of his Gundam in Transam Mode. And, for that matter, Transam itself played something of a similar role in season 1.]] * [[spoiler: EvolutionaryLevels: He became an innovator in the end, as a result of using the 00 Raiser.]] * {{Expy}}: Said to be [[CompositeCharacter a mixture between]] [[GundamWing Heero Yuy]] and [[FullMetalPanic Sousuke Sagara]]. He is also of Amuro [[spoiler:since he said something similar about Red Suits like when he saw Ali in his [[MobileSuitGundam RED]] gundam]] * FanNickname: [[ChildSoldiers Jihad-kun]], [[MetalGear Solid Setsuna]], [[DeathNote Kira and Set-Light or Setsulight.]] For the last three, look down.. * HatesBeingTouched: In regards to both himself and [[CargoShip his Gundams]]. * HazelEyes: [[spoiler:During and after his Innovation late in season 2, he now also has EyesOfGold.]] * TheHero: Naturally, although he is previously TheLancer to [[TheAce Neil]] [[spoiler:until the latter's death.]] * HeyItsThatVoice: MamoruMiyano is his Japanese voice, BradSwaile is his English voice... [[DeathNote we now wonder if Setsuna keeps a black notebook and a bag of potato chips inside Exia or 00]]. ** [[ActorAllusion Or apple, as seen in the first ending sequence.]] * HollywoodAtheist * HolyShitQuotient * HotBlooded: He has his moments. * HoYay: With [[spoiler:both]] Lockon, Tieria, Saji and some FoeYay with Graham and Ali. * IHaveManyNames * ILikeSwords: Obviously because HeroesPreferSwords. Let's see what he has... ** AbsurdlySharpBlade ** [[spoiler:{{Attack Drone}}s: The 00 Qan[T]'s six blade bits.]] ** {{BFS}} [[SwordBeam Beam]]: The Trans-Am Raiser. ** [[spoiler:BifurcatedWeapon: The 00 Qan[T]'s six blade bits can combine with the GN Sword.]] ** BladeBelowTheShoulder: Exia has these. ** CoolSword ** DualWielding: Exia and 00 have this as an arsenal. ** LaserBlade ** SwissArmyWeapon ** ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Especially if targets are hard to reach. * ImprobableAge: 16 in the first season, 21 in the second. Somewhat justified because of his backstory. * ItsPersonal: He * hates* Ali. Period. [[spoiler:This will likely extend to Ribbons as well, now that Setsuna has learned that his previously-unidentified "hero" from childhood is [[DarkMessiah evil]].]] * LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Exia has this. [[spoiler:And judging from TheMovie trailer, the 00 Qan[T] will have a HUGE one with six [[AttackDrone blade bits]] attached to it for extra offense.]] * MagneticHero * [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend Marina Is Not His Girlfriend, And She Says The Same About Him]]: The scene is notable for having absolutely none of the usual embarassment involved in this trope; both deliver an absolutely deadpan denial. ** He emphasized that again when [[spoiler:Feldt gave him flowers and thought Marina might be mad about this.]] * MenDontCry: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] when [[spoiler:Lockon I/Neil died where he shed lots of ManlyTears.]] * [[spoiler:TheMessiah: Being the first genuine Innovator, he fits. Not to mention his [[PropheticName Prophetic]] {{Codename}}.]] * MessianicArchetype * MyHeroZero: Idolizes the 0 Gundam. In season 2, he pilots the titular 00 Gundam. [[spoiler:And in TheMovie, the 00 Qan[T].]] * MysteriousMiddleInitial: Subverted that it's not his real name. [[spoiler:And said {{codename}} has a [[PropheticName prophetic meaning]].]] * MythologyGag: His birthday is April 7, 2291. In the real world, ''MobileSuitGundam'' was first broadcast on Japanese television on April 7, 1979. [[GundamWing Relena Peacecraft/Darlian]] also shares the same birthdate. * NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: [[WordOfGod He is named after]] the main star of ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turtles_Can_Fly Turtles Can Fly]]'', the first film to be made in Iraq after the fall of Saddam Hussein. The film is about war orphans. * TheNapoleon --> TallDarkAndHandsome: He was visibly short in season 1, but he was able to [[ShesAllGrownUp catch]] [[FanServicePack up]] in Season 2. * NotGoodWithPeople: In season 1 at least. * PapaWolf: Very much so in season 2, sensing his comrades all on the brink of death pissed him off to the point that he [[spoiler:unknowingly initiates the "[[EleventhHourSuperPower Trans-AM burst mode]]", completely turning the tide of the battle.]] * [[spoiler: [[PropheticName Prophetic]] {{Codename}}: ''A Moment From The Holy Eternity''. If you translate it to Japanese except the ''From'' , which you will remove the other three letters after ''F'', you'll get ''Setsuna F[[strike:rom]] Seiei''. [[WordOfGod The Director]] says it represents the moments of revolutions in the long history of mankind, hinting at [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic Setsuna being the true Innovator, the one who is going to bring revolution to mankind]].]] ** If that is not enough, [[spoiler:Just watch episode 24 where his mobile suit enable global telepathy, break the mind control powers of certain innovators, and reverse the form of radiation poisoning that had been slowly killing a couple characters. Mind, we already knew it could do all of these; just not on that scale.]] * ScarfOfAssKicking: Inverted. He wears one only in his civilian outfit, so he does most of his asskicking when he's ''not'' wearing it. * ScreamingWarrior * SelfMadeOrphan * SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Saji and him are like this in season 2. * ShipperOnDeck: Saji/Louise fanboy in season 2, to the extreme of [[spoiler: slashing off Andrei Smirnov's A-Head when [[MurderTheHypotenuse he attempted to kill Saji]].]] * ShirtlessScene: He and H/Allelujah in the second ED. * ShoutOut: His entire characterization has many references to SquareEnix games, namely; ** KingdomHearts: For his RelationshipVoiceActor with Saji. ** FinalFantasyVII: For having Exia use the omni-slash against Throne Zwei. ** FinalFantasyVIII: First for his rivalry with Graham that mirrors that of Squall Leonheart and Seifer Almassy's. Second with his Gundams using GN blades (GN is sometimes pronounced as "gun" in this series, you get the idea). Third with [[spoiler:the 00 Raiser's Trans-Am Raiser being identical to Squall's Blasting Zone LimitBreak]]. ** His personality is also similar to typical FinalFantasy main leads, especially [[FinalFantasyVII Cloud]] and [[FinalFantasyVIII Squall]]. * [[ThatManIsDead Soran Ibrahim Is Dead]]: And if you mention that name to Setsuna, chances are he'll be shocked. ''[[HeroicBSOD Very, very shocked]]''. * SpellMyNameWithAnS: His last name is Ibrahim, Ebrahim or Ybrahim? * StalkerWithACrush: Subverted. He follows Marina around for quite a number of times in season one, but that's due to him being a NotGoodWithPeople ChasteHero. * TheStoic ** NotSoStoic [[spoiler: '''"[[SayMyName LOCKOOOOOOOOONNNNNNN!!!!!]]"''']] ** StoicWoobie * TheStraightWillAndGrace: He says he and Marina are like this. * TheThreeFacesOfEve: [[http://daitrombe.net/image/show/27051 His three potential]] {{love interests}} fit this trope really well, with Marina being the mother and wife figure, Nena being the child and seductress, and finally, [[spoiler:Feldt]] as the maiden and wife figure. * {{Tykebomb}} * [[spoiler: WalkingTheEarth: He, Lyle/Lockon II and the rest of CB at the end of the series. Not just the Earth, but space as well.]] * [[spoiler: WhereItAllBegan: He ends up destroying the O Gundam, the very Mobile Suit that saved him during the very first episode using ''his'' original mobile suit, the Exia Gundam. Also, before the said battle took place, he had the Exia descend to battle [[ATwinkleInTheSky in the same manner]] during its debut.]] ---- ::'''Lockon Stratos''' The resident sniper of Celestial Being and the pilot of Gundam Dynames. Lockon acts like a big bro towards the rest of the Meisters, and is the most easy going, accompanied with a Haro. [[DarkAndTroubledPast His past is dark]], as he was a survivor of a terrorist attack (initiated by the same group Setsuna was under). Lockon eventually got to know better and directed his anger to Ali Al-Saachez. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, when fighting Ali himself, Lockon was badly wounded and was eventually killed, but not after he shot down Ali's Throne Zwei, severely ruining the machine and considerably put him out of action for a good while.]] Thus was the story of the Lockon known as Neil Dylandy. In the second season, [[spoiler:Neil's twin younger brother Lyle, a member of Kataron,]] took the name of Lockon Stratos and pilots the successor of Dynames: the Gundam Cherudim. He's just as skilled as his predecessor, but at first he [[ObfuscatingStupidity tends to act as if he knows nothing about piloting]] (though later, he shows a more intense and emotional side). [[spoiler:He is set to pilot Gundam Zabanya in the upcomming [[TheMovie movie]].]] Tropes associated with Lockon: * [[spoiler: AlexZahara: The twins' English VA.]] * {{Badass}} * BadassNormal: Their teammates are two {{Tyke bomb}}s (a [[ChildSoldiers Child]] and a SuperSoldier to be specific) [[spoiler:and an ArtificialHuman]]. They both hold their own. * {{BFG}} * CatchPhrase: "Sniping the target!" * DarkAndTroubledPast: Both of them [[spoiler: lost their parents and sister in a terrorist attack years ago.]] * DeadLittleSister: Both had one[[spoiler:, her name's Amy. Although Neil keeps his rage and angst to a minimum, it's still there. He subverts the standard of becoming an AntiHero, and instead fills the gaps with Celestial Being's members. Lyle on the other-hand [[IGotBetter moved on with his life]] after the incident.]] * {{Determinator}}s: Both of them [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome are able to pull impressive showings while either injured or using battered Gundams]] during their respective battles in each season's finale. * DivergentCharacterEvolution * EstrogenBrigadeBait * FriendlySniper: The [[Pantheon/{{Weapons}} Gods]] of the trope. * [[spoiler: GenerationXerox: Each twin had an Innovator (Tieria and Anew) as a lover. Unlike Neil however, Lyle was the one who pursued Anew, who returned his feelings. See also NotSoDifferent below.]] * GreenEyes: [[spoiler:ItRunsInTheFamily perhaps?]] * GunsAkimbo * TheGunslinger * HolyShitQuotient * LegacyCharacter * MacrossMissileMassacre: All the Lockons' Gundams have these. * [[MeaningfulName Meaningful]] {{Codename}}: In reference to their aiming and firearms expertise. * NotSoDifferent: Despite [[spoiler:Lyle]]'s claim that he is not like [[spoiler:his brother Neil]], his time spent with Celestial Being had some instances that parallels him to [[spoiler:his twin brother]]. * {{Revenge}}: [[spoiler:Neil's biggest motivation. Lyle subverts this as he does NOT fully embrace it.]] ** [[spoiler: Double-Subverted thanks to loss of Lyle's girlfriend Anew. His bullet will ''very'' likely either go through Setsuna or an Innovator.]] *** [[spoiler: As of episode 24, his bullet went through ''Ali''.]] And the trope was ''triple-subverted'' because [[spoiler: Lyle did NOT kill Ali to avenge his twin brother. He ''did'' try to give Ali a LastSecondChance, the other refused, and then BANG. ''Wow''.]] * [[spoiler: SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: It should be noted that the twins are ''both'' Sensitive and Manly men, depending on the situation they are in.]] * [[spoiler: SeparatedAtBirth: Heavily subverted, as both Neil and Lyle decided to stay out from each other's life. Isn't it sad ([[IsntItSad not this trope]], [[TearJerker the literal meaning]])..]] ** [[spoiler: The fact that they NeverGotToSayGoodBye to each other before Neil dies, makes it ''[[TearJerker even sadder]]''.]] * [[spoiler: ShinichiroMiki: The twins' seiyu.]] * [[spoiler: SiblingYinYang: So much that their names tell it; [[ThemeTwinNaming Neil means cloud, while Lyle means Island]].]] * TakeUpMySword * [[spoiler: UncannyFamilyResemblance]] With Neil: * TheAce: Arguably fits the role of TheHero better than Setsuna, shown to be very respected by the rest of CB, and a BadassNormal to boot. ** BrokenAce: A milder case. Yes he is a great and respected team leader to his comrades, but deep inside, he's a guy with ''huge'' issues on revenge. * AlwaysSomeoneBetter: [[spoiler:He is this to Lyle. [[TearJerker Isn't It Sad]]?]] * BerserkButton: Terrorism. [[MoralDissonance He is aware of the irony.]] * BewareTheNiceOnes * BigBrotherMentor * [[spoiler: BreakingTheFourthWall: He awfully seems to be addressing the audience with his last words: ''"Hey, are you all satisfied with this kind of world? I... hate it."'']] * CharacterAlignment: TrueNeutral: Although he's genuinely a NiceGuy, he is a borderline case of [[SelfishGoodSelfishEvil Selfish Good]] for being ''very obsessed'' for {{revenge}}. * [[spoiler: DeadPersonConversation: Manages to tell Tieria to calm down when he's struggling with inner turmoil. He would later do this to Setsuna as well, telling him the past can never be changed.]] * [[spoiler:DeathByDisfigurement: Look down]] * [[spoiler:DeathIsDramatic]] * [[spoiler: DyingAlone InSpace]] * [[spoiler: DyingMomentOfAwesome]] * EvenTheGuysWantHim: Lots of fanboys go weak at the knees for him. [[StupidSexyFlanders Stupid Sexy Lockon]] indeed. [[spoiler: Tieria alone can be a proof to this.]] * EyeScream: Courtesy of Patrick ** EyepatchOfPower: [[spoiler:Wears one near the end of his life.]] * FanNickname: [[StupidSexyFlanders Stupid Sexy Lockon]]! * FingerGun: He loves doing this, [[spoiler:even when he's dying]]. * GraspTheSun: Right before [[spoiler:he dies, he grasps the Earth, then [[FingerGun flicks his finger]] to where Japan where the original viewers are; see BreakingTheFourthWall above.]] * HandicappedBadass * [[PrettyInMink Handsome In Mink]]: His vest has fur in its collar. He's also sporting a [[FinalFantasyVIII Squall-like]] bomber jacket in the very first ED. * HeroicSacrifice: Subverted when he [[TakingTheBullet took the slash meant for Tieria]]. * ImprobableAimingSkills: "[[BadassBoast I'm the man who can shoot beyond the stratosphere]]." * [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]] ** [[spoiler: HesJustHiding: Come back, Neil... come back...]] * KnightInSourArmor: [[spoiler:His FamousLastWords blatantly reflect it.]] * MagneticHero * MemeticSexGod * [[spoiler:MyLifeFlashedBeforeMyEyes]] * NiceGuy * TheObiWan * [[spoiler:OurHeroIsDead]] * [[spoiler: ReallyDeadMontage]] * RevengeBeforeReason: Desides to go after Ali despite still recovering from his his eye injury and his Gundam not being fully repaired. * [[spoiler: SpiritAdvisor]]: For the rest of the CB in season 2. * [[spoiler: [[StupidSacrifice Stupid]] and SenselessSacrifice]] * [[TakingTheBullet Taking The Beam Saber]]: He shields Tieria from Patrick's attack at the cost of his [[EyeScream right eye]]. * TallDarkAndHandsome * [[spoiler: TooCoolToLive]] * UnknownRival: To Ali. [[spoiler:With Lyle]] * {{Attack Drone}}s: The Cherudim's shield bits.[[spoiler:Then the Zabanya's rifle/pistol/holster bits.]] * [[spoiler: BackupTwin: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] as Lyle goes way out of his way to ensure that those around him don't try to compare him to Neil.]] * BlackSheep * CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood --> TrueNeutral --> NeutralGood: [[spoiler:Started as a [[LaResistance Kataron]] DoubleAgent, then WildCard DoubleAgent, until finally leaving Kataron to officially join Celestial Being as a full-pledged Gundam Meister.]] * ChekhovsGunman * [[spoiler: {{Codename}}: [[DoubleAgent Lockon Stratos for Celestial Being. Gene-1 for Kataron]].]] * ConspicuousTrenchcoat * [[spoiler: DoubleAgent: For Kataron; subverted in that his CB comrades know he's a double agent and don't care.]] ** [[spoiler: BecomingTheMask: At the finale, he finally embraces his identity as a Gundam Meister and left Kataron.]] * EarlyBirdCameo: He's the one [[spoiler:visiting the Dylandy grave]] early in season 1. * GunKata: He's so awesome at it. VERY Awesome. * HandsomeLech: Subverted, since [[spoiler: it's a part of Lyle's JerkassFacade to distance himself from Neil's borderline MartyStu image among the Celestial Being crowd and tell them he's no one's ReplacementGoldfish.]] * [[spoiler: HeartbrokenBadass: After Anew's death.]] * IndyPloy * JerkWithAHeartOfGold: One who's willing to put on a JerkassFacade if needed. * TheLancer * LetsGetDangerous: He's quite a daredevil really. * MenDontCry: [[AvertedTrope Averted hard]] when [[spoiler:Anew died where he shed lots of ManlyTears ''and'' goes on a HeroicBSOD.]] * MiddleChildSyndrome: He fits this well[[spoiler:, considering that Neil was the older twin and they had a DeadLittleSister.]] * ObfuscatingStupidity: Made even more apparent in [[AllThereInTheManual 4 months for 2312]] [[spoiler:where he found out that Anew was an innovator but neglected to tell her or anyone else]]. * RelationshipVoiceActor: The seiyus of [[spoiler: Lyle (Shinichiro Miki) and Anew (Ryouko Shiraishi)]] also does [[spoiler: Bob and Chiaki]] from TenjouTenge. [[spoiler: The said characters are also lovers.]] What's more, in a scene in the TenjouTenge manga [[spoiler: Chiaki protests about Bob spacing out while making love to her]], while in episode 18 [[spoiler:Lyle protests about Anew spacing out while they're kissing]]. Talk about payback. * [[spoiler: ReplacementScrappy: Even when his partners ''do'' warm up to him, a good part of the fandom just ''won't'' forgive Lyle for not being a carbon copy of his twin brother Neil. An example is [[http://community.livejournal.com/hated_character/395119.html# cutid1 here]], followed by [[http://community.livejournal.com/gundam00/639241.html# cutid1 some explanations]].]] * SmokingIsCool * [[spoiler: StarCrossedLovers and FatalAttraction: With poor Anew.]] * SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute [[spoiler:More like DoubleAgent BackupTwin, [[BecomingTheMask but he got better]].]] * SwissArmyWeapon: The Cherudim's dual handguns have a built in [[AnAxeToGrind axe for short-range combat]]. * TallDarkAndSnarky * TheUnfavorite: One that doesn't even need a family to be it. [[spoiler: He's finally accepted by the CB people in episode 13 of season 2. Almost got subverted after Setsuna [[ShootTheDog killed his brainwashed girlfriend Anew]] to save him, but he ''did'' calm down.]] * TheUntwist: Him being [[spoiler:Neil's BackupTwin]]. * [[spoiler: WalkingTheEarth: He, Setsuna, and the rest of CB at the end of the series. And it also involves space travel.]] ---- ::'''Allelujah Haptism''' The third of the Gundam Meisters, pilot of Gundam Kyrios, and later Arios. Allelujah is a product of a SuperSoldier program, but a failed one. He has another personality named "[[SuperpoweredEvilSide Hallelujah]]". While Allelujah is calm and amiable, Hallelujah is a sociopathic person who laughs in the face of deaths... of many of his enemies. In the events of the series, however, Allelujah lost Hallelujah and was forced to continue on his own. [[spoiler:HesBack...]] He seems to be acquainted towards WhiteHairedPrettyGirl Soma Peries, another product of that said program. He knew her as ''[[SayMyName MARIE!]] Parfacy'', which suggests a history between them. [[spoiler: After [[IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight succesfully reaching out to her]], they got together and he took her to CB with him, eventually becoming a BattleCouple later in the story. They are set to pilot Gundam Harute in the upcoming [[TheMovie movie]].]] Tropes according to Allelujah: * AlliterativeName: Hallelujah Haptism. * [[AntiHero Anti]] HeroicSafeMode * AxCrazy: Hallelujah. * [[spoiler: BattleCouple: With his girlfriend Soma/Marie, in the second season. When she returns to action in the GN Archer, she docks it with the Arios Gundam together and form the Arios Archer.]] * TheBigGuy: Allelujah in season 1. In season 2, he became more of a male version of TheChick. IsntItSad? Hallelujah on the other hand fights more like TheBrute due to being the TokenEvilTeammate. * BloodKnight: Hallelujah. * BoundAndGagged: Spends the first few episodes of Season 2 like this. * [[ManInWhite Boy In White]]: During his time at the HRL SuperSoldier program shown in {{Flashback}}s. ** WhiteShirtOfDeath: Subverted during his escape. Played straight by the other SuperSoldier escapees Hallelujah killed though. * CharacterAlignment: Allelujah is NeutralGood, while Hallelujah is ChaoticEvil. [[spoiler: [[FanNickname Doubleujah]] is probably ChaoticNeutral.]] * [[ChildSoldiers Child Soldier]] * CombatPragmatist: Hallelujah, [[spoiler:a notable example being him smacking Hilling's Garazzo around using his beam rifle as a club]]. * CrazyAwesome: Hallelujah. * DarkAndTroubledPast * DracoInLeatherPants: Hallelujah. Oh God, HALLELUJAH! * EvilIsCool: Isn't that right, Hallelujah? * EvilIsHammy: Hallelujah. * EvilLaugh: Hallelujah ''loves'' doing this. * [[spoiler: ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Trailers for TheMovie show him with much longer hair.]] * FanNickname: [[spoiler: Doubleujah]] for obvious reasons, Baptismal Boy for is name and [[TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal]] Haptism due to his first appearance in season 2. * [[spoiler: [[FirstGirlWins First Guy Wins]] and VictoriousChildhoodFriend: He is the very first boy that Marie knew personally and befriended. And they [[OfficialCouple end up together]].]] * FriendsWithBenefits: Hinted to be this with Sumeragi. [[strike:Lucky guy]]. * [[GollumMadeMeDoIt Hallelujah Made Me Do It]] * HeroicSociopath: Hero = Allelujah (probably); Sociopath = Hallelujah (most definitely). * [[spoiler: HesJustHiding]]: [[CatchPhrase Isn't that right, Hallelujah!?]] ** [[spoiler: HesBack: Hallelujah is officially back as of episode 24 of season 2.]] --> [[spoiler: '''Hallelujah''': * [[EvilLaugh laughing like Hell]]* "The SuperSoldier is back!]] * HiroyukiYoshino: His seiyuu. * HolyShitQuotient * [[spoiler: [[IAmNotLeftHanded I Am Not Left Eyed]]: Allelujah/Hallelujah can, in fact, become [[SplitPersonalityMerge both of them]] at once the moment he pushes his hair back, so that it won't conceal any eye. When he does, much ass is kicked.]] * ImAHumanitarian: Implied, but he wouldn't be above it. When stranded in space as a child and running out of food and oxygen, Hallelujah shoots his friends, [[UnfortunateImplications blood dripping down his face and front]]. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation You may draw your own conclusion]]. Goes into NoPartyLikeADonnerParty on Allelujah's part, given the circumstances, but for [[ChaoticEvil Hallelujah]]... ** At one point in the first season, Hallelujah mentions that he's not above drinking blood to survive (if I recall correctly), for further implications. * IsntItSad: He got pretty shafted for facetime for the latter part of season one, CrowningMomentOfAwesome aside. It ''seems'' he'll be getting a bit more of spotlight in the second, what with the subplot involving him and Soma. ** Sadly, after his/Soma's subplot was resolved, the two faded into the background again but still made a good showing whenever they did appear. * JekyllAndHyde * LightningBruiser: His Gundams are all hard-hitting speedsters. [[spoiler:As Doublelujah, he can have the strength and reflex of two people.]] * MemeticSexGod ''and'' MemeticMolester: Hallelujah. * MenDontCry: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] when [[spoiler:Lockon I/Neil died.]] * MismatchedEyes: His left [[GrayEyes eye is gray]], and the [[EyesOfGold right is gold]]. * [[spoiler: [[CapuletCounterpart Montague Counterpart]] and OfficialCouple: As of episode 7 of S2, Allelujah/Soma is ''canon''. Let's just hope they don't end up StrangledByTheRedString...]] ** [[spoiler: [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming They do not]].]] * NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Whenever Hallelujah emerges, [[spoiler: notable examples include episode 10 (poor Adjutant Ming.), and in the finale where he tears Hilling Care a new asshole]]. * PeekABangs: And take warning at ''which'' eye is covered... * PutTheLaughterInSlaughter: Hallelujah loves this. * TheQuietOne: Allelujah. Only Allelujah. * RaceLift: He's originally [[ButNotTooForeign mixed]] [[{{Lzherusskie}} Russian]] and [[ChinesePeople Chinese]], but was {{retcon}}ed as a [[UsefulNotes/{{Kazakhstan}} Kazakhs]]. * RealNameAsAnAlias: [[spoiler:Marie actually named him Allelujah.]] * TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Hallelujah does this to his opponents, specially if he's about to kill them. * ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming: Duh! * ReluctantWarrior: Not as pronounced as most examples but he definitely has a thing against killing people, especially if they can't really fight back. He expresses some self-disgust when having to bomb a base and expresses relief when he gets to bomb a crop field. Since Hallelujah is a total psychopath, he has a few moments arguing with himself. * RichardIanCox: His English voice actor. * SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Allelujah and Hallelujah can be seen as the two in one body. Allelujah is a sensitive person while Hallelujah is a sociopathic tough guy. [[spoiler: Likewise, his/their girlfriend/s Soma/Marie can also be seen as a two in one body for [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl this trope's female counterpart]].]] * ShirtlessScene: He and Setsuna in the second ED. * SplitPersonality: Triggered by stress and sparkles. ** [[spoiler: SplitPersonalityMerge: Did this in both season's finale.]] * SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[IncrediblyLamePun Hallelujah!]] * SuperSoldier: [[YouAreNumberSix He is number E-057]] to be specific. * SurvivorGuilt: See ImAHumanitarian above. * SwissArmyWeapon: The Kyrios is equipped with a [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe a shield]] that can also function as [[BladeBelowTheShoulder a pincher]]. [[spoiler:The Harute has a pair so H/Allelujah and [=SoMarie=] can go DualWielding and GunsAkimbo anytime they want.]] * TalkingToThemself * TallDarkAndHandsome: Allelujah. Hallelujah is a bonefide TallDarkAndSnarky. * TokenEvilTeammate: Hallelujah ''once again''. * TransformingMecha: His Gundams. * [[spoiler:TrueLovesKiss: With Marie once they hook up.]] * {{Tykebomb}} * [[spoiler: WalkingTheEarth: Along with the rest of CB, however slightly different in that he and Marie left CB to walk the Earth [[JourneyToFindOneself on their own in order to find the meaning behind their existence]].]] * WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: His name, his eyes and his Gundams. * WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: Allelujah is sometimes bashed mainly because his {{Badass}} SuperpoweredEvilSide do all the [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment badassery]] in battle. * TheWorfEffect: Allelujah in the second season. Seriously, except for his battle against Revive Revival, he just can't win tough battles on his own. [[spoiler:It takes Hallelujah to re-emerge to beat the shit out of his opponents.]]) ---- ::'''Tieria Erde''' He... yes, that ''is'' a "he". ([[MemeticMutation Be careful! It's a trap!]]). Anyway, ''he'' is the fourth of the Meisters, piloting Gundam Virtue (and Nadleeh) and later Seravee (and Seraphim). Tieria is known to be able to establish a direct connection to Veda, Celestial Being's supercomputer, and acts aloof and bemeaning towards the rest of the Meisters. This, however, changes due to the interactions he has with Lockon Stratos later on, where he starts to act more human-like. He is serious and pragmatic, but his past is completely shrouded by mystery. [[spoiler:Seems like he got an EvilTwin amongst Ribbons' company. He is killed physically by Ribbons near the end of the series, but his mind got transfered to Veda, abling him to return as a [[VirtualGhost holographic figure]] from time to time. He is set to pilot the Raphael Gundam in the upcomming [[TheMovie movie]].]] Tropes associated with Tieria: * [[spoiler: AllLoveIsUnrequited: The fact that Tieria had strong feelings for the first Lockon has been pretty much accepted by fandom, though the ''exact'' nature and extent are heavily debated. While Lockon ''did'' care for Tieria, though, his issues would've made ''very'' hard for him to fully reciprocate his teammate's love for him.]] * AloofAlly: Pre-CharacterDevelopment. * [[spoiler: AmbiguouslyGay / StraightGay / {{Gayngster}}: Some speculate he qualifies as either one due to his feelings for Neil, but, like the exact nature of his feelings, this is debated.]] * ArmorPiercingSlap: If he's not the one pimp-slapping people, he is the one ''getting'' slapped. * [[spoiler:ArtificialHuman]]: Strongly hinted at since season one, but not explicitly stated [[spoiler:until episode 7 of season two.]] * [[spoiler: AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence]] * [[spoiler:AttractiveBentGender: [[DroppedABridgetOnHim AAAARRRGGH]]!!!!]] * [[spoiler: BecomeARealBoy: Both adhered to and subverted. He learns to live like a human over the course of the series. He becomes attached to Neil Dylandy, breaks away from VEDA, and adopts parts of the Ptolemaois crew as a surrogate family. For a time he even insists that he IS human. Yet in the end, he gives up his physical body, accepts himself for what he is, and finds fulfillment by merging with VEDA as an AI.]] * BerserkButton: A couple, but he cycles through them. He started out so violently devoted to Veda that if anyone (i.e. Setsuna and Allelujah) messed up its plans he'd lock them in a padded room for a week at best, and try to ''kill'' them at worst. After [[spoiler:Veda ditches him,]] he throws all of his affection onto [[spoiler: Neil "Lockon Stratos" Dylandy,]] and God help you if [[spoiler:you insult him in front of Tieria.]] * {{BFG}}: A trademark of his Gundams. * {{Bishonen}} * [[spoiler: BoomHeadshot: Subverted that he didn't [[NotQuiteDead quite died]].]] * CargoShip: Many fans jokingly (or sometimes not) ship him with Veda due to his total obsession with it in the first season. Said fans were also pretty amused by him mentioning Veda in S2 episode 18 when most other characters were thinking of loved ones - though in fairness, [[spoiler:the mission at the time ''was'' all about taking Veda back from Ribbons's control.]] * CharacterAlignment: LawfulNeutral --> NeutralGood --> LawfulGood: He used to think the rules set by Veda were everything, and he's even willing to kill his fellow meisters who break it. Things changed when [[spoiler:Veda gets hijacked and ditches him]], and his following interactions with Neil furthered his CharacterDevelopment, allowing him to break away from Veda. [[spoiler:But with Veda's recapture in the season 2 finale and his merging with it, he finally re-accepted his purpose as an Innovade while still retaining his ''own'' perception on what's right or wrong, unlike before.]] * ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler:The TRIAL system]]. * [[spoiler:DeathIsCheap: As for all other Innovators.]] * [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting Ice Lord]], thanks to his CharacterDevelopment. * EvilTwin: Regene Regetta. [[spoiler:They have the same DNA. Events on episode 24 of Season 2 will make you wonder about the "Evil" part though.]] * FanNickname: "Vowels", because his name is full of 'em. Also "[[MoeMoe Moeria]]", because his fangirls think he looks ''adorable'' when he's upset. * FetishFuelStationAttendant: His background story pretty much confirms that he is a male version of RobotGirl, he dons a pair of [[{{Meganekko}} glasses]], is very much a male {{Tsundere}}, is so pretty that he'd count as a TRAP, which is perfect for you who want to dress him up with all those fetishized female outfit, then... [[spoiler:[[WholesomeCrossdresser Goes all out in crossdressing by using fake boobs, a pretty dress and a very much feminine voice.]]]] And if you think that's not enough, he even gets a gratuitious ShowerScene. * FourIsDeath: He is the '''fourth''' meister. He piloted '''four''' Gundams in the series, not counting the 00 Gundam seen in a FlashBack, including the GN-00'''4''' Nadleeh. Speaking of the 00 Gundam, it is the ''only'' '''fourth''' generation Gundam and it's powered by two GN Drives; one from the very first (O) Gundam and the other is from Setsuna's previous (Exia) Gundam that was part of the third generation Gundams (It's 1+ 3='''4'''). In the second season, [[spoiler:he is revealed to be part of the Innovades, a group that consist of '''four''' pairs. And finally, guess what happened to him near the GrandFinale? Yup, he was killed, [[NotQuiteDead only physically]], but still killed. Oh, and to be specific, that happened on episode 2'''4'''.]] * FullNameBasis: He call others by their full names rather than either last or first ones. He seems to have dropped the habit by season two, though. * GeniusBruiser: While he is a BadassBookworm, while fighting inside his Gundams, he can be both TheBigGuy and TheSmartGuy. * [[spoiler: HesJustHiding: He is. Inside Veda to be precise.]] * HiroshiKamiya: Tieria's Seiyu. * HolyShitQuotient * HoYay: With Lockon, oh so much. ** FoeYay: With [[spoiler: Ribbons]], oh daaaaaaayum! * [[spoiler:HunterOfHisOwnKind]]: In Season 2. * JudgeJuryAndExecutioner: He is the sole operator of the [[spoiler:TRIAL System. Once he's judged somebody unfit to be a Gundam Meister, the TRIAL system allows him to shut down their Gundam and kill them.]] Need I say more? * LauncherOfAThousandShips: He is paired with many characters in fanon, mostly with his fellow meisters. * [[spoiler:LovingAShadow: Not explicitly shown nor stated, but he still thinks of Neil, four years after his death in season 2.]] * MenDontCry: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] when [[spoiler:Lockon I/Neil died where he shed the most ManlyTears.]] * [[spoiler:MessianicArchetype: [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic He got himself physically killed]] to save his friends and humanity from Fucking Ribbons by merging with Veda, and then he had his Seraphim Gundam use the Trial system to eliminate Ribbons' minions by emitting a [[CreepyCoolCrosses red cross]] while it's in a CrucifiedHeroShot.]] * MultiArmedAndDangerous: Seravee has four {{BFG}}s, two on its shoulders and two in its knees. These all are capable of sprouting hands equipped with beam sabers in addition to the Seravee's normal pair, allowing Seravee to simultaneously fight with ''six beam sabers'' at one time. * [[spoiler: MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning: Ribbons struck him down, in which he merged with Veda and became more powerful than Ribbons could ever imagine.]] ** To clarify after he [[spoiler: is maimed and killed by Ribbons, his consciousness merges with Veda.]] Then he [[spoiler:knocks every last ship he can out of the sky and then schools Setsuna on plans of Aeolia Schenberg, and he does all of this ''while shot in the head''.]] Easily, Tieria's biggest CrowningMomentOfAwesome. * MysteriousPast: [[spoiler:While [[ArtificialHuman his origins]] are revealed in season two, his past STILL remain a mystery.]] * [[spoiler: NotQuiteDead]] * [[spoiler: PinocchioSyndrome: He "suffers" from these in the second season.]] * PronounTrouble: His choice of first-person pronoun in Japanese is indicative of his mental state; masculine "''ore''" pre-defrostment, more reserved "''boku''" after he's defrosted, and suspiciously gender-neutral "''watashi''" at his most fragile. How the English dub will deal with this remains to be seen... ** He once even managed to use all three of these in a row (''ore'' to ''boku'' to ''watashi'') when he cried on screen the first time. * RealMenWearPink (While he's hardly Mr Super Manly Man, that pink cardigan of his definitely counts. * RealNameAsAnAlias * RedEyesTakeWarning ** EyesOfGold: Everytime he connects with Veda. [[spoiler: That is, until FUCKING RIBBONS and the other Innovators hijacked Veda. He regains them back though, [[MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning but]]..]] * SamuelVincent: His English VA. * ShutUpHannibal: When sick of listening to [[spoiler:Ribbons, he pulls the gun in his garter on him,]] and then when that doesn't shut him up he [[spoiler:jumps out a window. Wow.]] ** And later, [[spoiler:When he's immobilized Bring Stabity's mobile suit, Bring is sure that Tieria won't strike the killing blow. After all, as Innovators, they're both the same. Tieria angrily retorts that he's not an Innovator, but a human, and kills Bring.]] * TheSpock: Pre-CharacterDevelopment. * StoicSpectacles: And fairly big ones at that) * [[spoiler: [[StupidSexyFlanders Stupid Sexy Trap]]: Fangirls went ABSOLUTELY weak at the knees when he showed up in drag. It was a trap, yeah, but he made such a GREAT trap that fangirls were all "We love T-chan as male AND female, kthx".]] ** Despite Lockon taking all the credit, there are a fair share of male fans that also go weak in the knees for him. * TallDarkAndSnarky: Pre-CharacterDevelopment. * [[spoiler:TokenNonHuman]] * {{Tsundere}}: Arguably, after his defrostment. * {{Ubermensch}} * ViewerGenderConfusion: If it's not for his voice, he'd pass as a girl, easily! And yet he ''still'' manages to cause a lot on confusion among fans... who knows, he may well be a GenderBender. One of the Gundams he's used is called Nadleeh, after all... ** As it so happens, [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary material]] has recently stated that, in ''00'''s early planning stages, Tieria was going to be a [[{{Bifauxnen}} beautiful woman disguised as a man]]. By the time the producers commissioned the character design from Yun Kouga, though, they'd already changed their minds and asked her to design the pretty boy we all know instead. *** ...God...[[WhatCouldHaveBeen God damn it]]...[[MsFanservice WRY?!]] * [[spoiler: VirtualGhost: The latest movie trailer shows him appearing as a holographic figure making him ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.)]] * [[spoiler: TheVoice: After Ribbons gunned him to death, [[DeathIsCheap his mind left his physical body and merged with Veda]]. The only way for him to make his presence felt is through his voice. Unless you're Ribbons, in which case... hoo boy...]] * [[spoiler: WholesomeCrossdresser: In episode 8 of season two, complete with fake breasts and long hair extensions...

A genius strategist with a shady past, Sumeragi [[spoiler: or better said, Risa Kujoh]] is TheStrategist for the group, devising their tactics and assuming command when in battle. However, she seems to be also very emotionally fragile, and her past has made her [[LadyDrunk borderline (if not downright)]] [[DrowningMySorrows alcoholic]]. She also was close to Billy Katagiri, [[spoiler:who goes {{Yandere}} for her in the second season]]. Tropes associated with Sumeragi: * ActionSurvivor * TheAlcoholic * TheAragorn * BottleFairy: Always ready to drink. * BrainyBrunette * BrokenBird * BrownEyes * BunnyEarsLawyer: And is also an excellent tactician/strategist. * ButNotTooForeign: Japanese-Spanish born in America, wow! * CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood --> TrueNeutral --> NeutralGood * CooldownHug: Uses this on [[spoiler: Billy]] towards the end, who breaks down in tears as a result. * DatingCatWoman: With Billy during season 1. * DrowningMySorrows: Still, she's a LadyDrunk so because... * {{Expy}}: Of {{Evangelion}}'s Misato Katsuragi, but with bigger breasts and a bigger drinking problem: at least Misato never drank on duty. * FailureKnight: She's plagued by the memories of [[spoiler: her lover Emilio's death, apparently to her and Kati's mistakes.]] * FormFittingWardrobe So much in season 1 that it even [[BareYourMidriff bared her midriff]]. When she rejoined the crew in season 2, the uniform she first tried on is too small for her. * GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Continues the proud Gundam tradition of slapping the fail out of emo people [[spoiler:such as Tieria in Season 1]], and winds up having this done to her at least once. * [[GuileHero Guile Heroine]] * HartmanHips: [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/443010/ VERY shapely.]] * HolyShitQuotient: ''All'' her strategies. * LisaAnnBeley: Her English VA.

She initially has a very reserved, borderline emotionless personality, although thanks to her friendship with fellow bridge bunny Christina Sierra, and the crush she develops on Lockon Stratos, this gradually changes. In season two, she continues her work as a bridge bunny, with [[CharacterDevelopment a more open personality]]. Tropes associated with Feldt: * AllLoveIsUnrequited: As sweet as her crush on Lockon was, he only saw her as a substitute younger sister at best... [[spoiler:and then he died. Between Feldt and Tieria, the moral of the story is probably this: Don't develop strong feelings for Neil Dylandy.]] ** [[spoiler:And then she develops feelings for Setsuna, who is more or less [[{{Asexuality}} asexual]], TheMovie does nothing to resolve this at all.]] * [[spoiler:ArmorPiercingSlap: Does this to Lyle when he steals a kiss from her.

Cue lots of [[{{Squee}} squeeing]] from said fanboys. To make it even more obvious, she recently kicked Nena out from the popularity poll, replacing her as the most well liked 00 female, [[spoiler: and also Setsuna's potential love interest.]] * ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Switches her [[PrincessCurls drill-like pigtails]] for a single ponytail in season two.

''{{Squee}}''. * GenerationXerox: Like her mother, she fell in love with a Gundam meister. [[spoiler:In her case, twice.]] * GreenEyes * ImprobableAge: She's only 14 in season one, and even after the timeskip is still 19. Justified by the fact she's been with Celestial Being her entire life, though. * [[spoiler: LovingAShadow: Towards Neil in the early parts of season 2. The GenreSavvy Lyle notices and disuades her ''brutally'' by putting on a JerkAssFacade.]] * IWasQuiteAFashionVictim: In season 1. [[spoiler:Christina's [[FamousLastWords dying words]] even encouraged her to be fashionable.]] * MaleGaze * MamaBear: Given that she views everyone in CB as her family, Feldt was rather unhappy to say the least when Allelujah [[spoiler: came back with Soma, who was part of the original UN taskforce which was responsible for the deaths of Christina, Lichty, Dr. Moreno and Lockon I. She ''did'' apologize later, though.]] * {{Moe}}: In season 1. * NotGoodWithPeople: Most prevalent in season 1 where she prefered to interact with computers and Haros as opposed to people, she's slowly growing out of it during the 2nd season though. * OneeSama: Acts like one towards Mileina. * [[MilitaryBrat Paramilitary Brat]] * ParentalAbandonment: Both her parents died when she was very small, and because of Celestial Being's strict rules on confidentiality, she doesn't even know ''how'' they died. [[spoiler:The ''00P'' [[AllThereInTheManual photonovel sidestory]] tells their story and explains that they were vapourised in an accident involving Virtue/Nadleeh's predecessor unit; in a way, it might've been for the ''better'' that poor Feldt didn't find out about that.]] * PluckyGirl * RoseHairedGirl: Notable in that, out of all the characters with odd hair colours, she's the only one that's [[spoiler:an ordinary human, instead of being either [[SuperSoldier modified]] or [[ArtificialHuman artificial]].]] ** [[WordOfGod It is not natural, she dyes it pink.]] * SayMyName: [[spoiler: [[TearJerker "CHRISTINA SIERRAAAAAAAAA!!!!"]]]] * ShipTease: Just watch episode 22 of season 2.

[[spoiler:Losing the man she had a crush on ''and'' her best friend, ''in quick succession?'' Ouch.]] ** [[spoiler: ... Then when you add the fact that both her parents died just a little after she was born..though it probably explains why she was so withdrawn in season 1]]. * WrenchWench: Her background info [[InformedAbility implies]] she is one, stating that she has a wealth of mechanics related knowledge, and can troubleshoot a GN drive. Pity we only get to see her use said knowledge a few times, also implied though her finding more comfort in dealing with machines (Haros mainly) rather than people. * ZettaiRyouiki: Not sure, but her boots are pretty high in the first season. ---- ::'''Christina Sierra''' One of the BridgeBunnies in Ptolemios, Christina ran away from her adopted mother before being discovered by Celestial Being.

They're having fun while she's off saving the world. So she [[KillEmAll kills 'em all]] ([[spoiler:though one Louise Halevy escapes]]).

Graham tends to relate things with Japanese, following some sort of Bushido code, yelling about surpassing Ashura in battle, etc. Despite that, he is not a Japanophile, but one of the best pilots in the world, being the first to deal any substantial damage to a Gundam without a scratch. He also has a bizarre attraction to the Gundams (or more specifically, Exia), often talking about them in romantic terms even as he fights them. In response of the death of his comrade Howard Mason at the hands of Gundam, Graham made a vow to defeat the Gundam with just using Flags. He fought Setsuna after the latter defeats Alejandro Corner, and fought to a stalemate. In the second season, he returns wearing a mask, now calling himself Mr. Bushido. He finally got his personal unit called 'Masuraou', a customized Flag using dual katana, which was built by his friend Billy Katagiri. It later got upgraded into 'Susanoo' and he finally reveals his identity to Setsuna for the first time. Tropes associated with Graham: * ArchEnemy * AscendedFanboy * {{Badass}} * BadassNormal * [[BlondGuysAreEvil Blond Guys Are]] {{Noble Demon}}s * BloodFromTheMouth: The latest episode has this when he [[spoiler:uses a Trans-Arm-like technique on his Masuraou.]] * BoisterousBruiser: He had his moments. * BringMyRedJacket: He kinda suffered from TheWorfEffect as Mister Bushido. * BunnyEarsLawyer: He's a Japanophile all right, and has lots of honor issues. But still one of the best pilots that Union or A-Laws can offer. * CargoShip: Has a ''massive'' man-crush on Exia. Not Setsuna. ''Exia.'' Also compares Dynames to Sleeping Beauty while attempting to capture it. Really, Graham, [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction the sheer MECHANICS of it are mind-boggling!]] * [[CelibateHero Celibate]] [[TheRival Rival]]: [[AllThereInTheManual Supplementary materials]] revealed that he was asked by his commanding officer to marry his daughter, but Graham declined. * CharacterAlignment: LawfulNeutral --> ChaoticNeutral [[spoiler:--> ChaoticGood]] * ClearMyName: According to [[AllThereInTheManual side-stories]], [[spoiler: Graham accidentally caused the death of his superior officer during a training exercise]] earning him a VERY bad reputation. That's why when Joshua mocked him, he stated that he'll do everything to, well, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment clear his name]] in the battlefield. * CoolMask: [[CharClone He is a CHAR.]] * DualWielding: Dual Katana user. * {{Eagleland}}: Mixes both types. * EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Except Billy, everyone calls him Mr. Bushido in season 2. * EverythingsBetterWithSamurai * {{Expy}}: Aside from being the CharClone, he could also be the [[FinalFantasyVIII Seifer]] to Setsuna's [[FinalFantasyVIII Squall]]. * {{Fanboy}}: Of Japanese things. * FanNickname: Aside from Tieria, this guy has plenty of nicknames too. Japanese people shortened his name to Ham, when he dons a mask, he was know as [=HamMask=] or Bushido Bob, the last one came close to canon. His mobile suits can use the [[spoiler: Trans-Am system]] so it's jokingly called [[spoiler: Trans-[[strike: Grah]]Am.]] * [[FashionVictimVillain Fashin Victim]] [[TheRival Rival]]: Wearing a {{Samurai}} outfit?

He renames the signature attack of the God Gundam as GOD GRAHAM FINGER. * IGaveMyWord: He promised himself that he'll defeat a Gundam using a Flag and keeps it even during the second season. ** [[spoiler: In TheMovie trailers, he's ''still'' using a (more powerful and technologically advanced) Flag unit called the ''Brave''.]] * ILikeSwords * InLoveWithYourCarnage * IsntItSad: Despite all his [[HotBlooded scenery chewing]], [[TheRival rivalry]] with Setsuna, and popularity among fans, thanks to ExecutiveMeddling in the second season his subplot was largely irrelevant. Not to the point of being TrappedByMountainLions, but after he got AnAesop delivered to him, he was pretty much sidelined for the rest of the season. * KatanasAreJustBetter * [[LargeHam Large]] [[strike:[[IncrediblyLamePun Gra]]]][[LargeHam Ham]]: Even amongst a particularly hammy cast, Graham is easily one of the largest hams in the show and only gets hammier in S2. Despite this, people tolerate him because of his [[BunnyEarsLawyer status as the Union's best pilot]]. * LeeroyJenkins: Actually says at one point "And I shall overcome reasoning with my recklessness". This also sums up his battle strategy when fighting Gundams, albeit with slightly more success than Patrick. * LetsGetDangerous * McNinja: Despite his increasingly Japanese motif, he is still an American. * OccidentalOtaku * OneManArmy: A-LAWS pretty much lets him do whatever he wants by himself. * TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou- [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Yes Setsuna]], [[CaptainObvious You!]] * PaperThinDisguise: In season 2. * PaulDobson: His English VA. * PetTheDog: In a meta-sense it sounds like [[spoiler:he'll be important in TheMovie]]. It's the least they could do what with putting him on a bus. * PickOnSomeoneYourOwnSize: He likes picking on Gundam. {{Squick}}! * RagsToRiches: According to [[AllThereInTheManual side stories]]. * RedStringOfFate: Claims that he and Setsuna are connected connected by this. He then says that ''that'' fate is [[FoeYay to face each other in battle]]. * TheRival: To Setsuna. ** UnknownRival: In season 2. ''IsntItSad''? * RyuAndKen: With Setsuna. * {{Samurai}}: He wields a Katana-like beam saber, he strictly follows the code of Bushido and only fights... * [[ScreamingWarrior Screaming]] [[strike: Warrior]] {{Samurai}} * SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Billy and him, though he shows his sensitive side from time to time. * TransformingMecha: His Flag units, [[spoiler:including the one he'll use in TheMovie, the AceCustom ''Brave''.]] * WorthyOpponent * YuuichiNakamura: His seiyu. ----- ::'''Billy Katagiri''' A mobile suit developer and friend of Union AcePilot Graham Aker.

Billy is a former classmate of Sumeragi Li Noriega [[spoiler:(aka Leesa Kujo)]] and [[WhatAnIdiot inadvertently]] leaks information about "Project G" to her and Celestial Being. After the death of Professor Eifman and Howard Mason during an attack by Team Trinity, Billy uses one of the recently acquired GN Drives to upgrade Graham's Flag unit to the GN-Flag in order to fight the Gundams. By the second season, [[spoiler:Billy is taking care of a despondent Kujo, still unaware that she was a member of Celestial Being until Setsuna appears to retrieve her. Shocked by this revelation, Billy joins the A-Laws and becomes the head of mobile suit development.

He's also the co-developer of Union's [=OverFlag=]. Tropes associated with Ralph: * CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood * CoolOldGuy * TheEngineer * GadgeteerGenius * HeKnowsTooMuch: While investigating over Celestial Being, Eifman made a revelation. He realized somehow the correlation between the Jupiter incident 120 years ago and Celestial Being gave Eifman an epiphany over Aeolia Schenberg's true philosophical intentions; his revelations were too late. His own computer monitor revealed a message,"[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin You have witnessed too much.]]" Shortly after, the Thrones attacked and Eins fired its [[{{BFG}} GN Mega Launcher]], vaporizing him before he could reveal the truth to anyone. * KilledOffForReal * MentorArchetype * MrFixIt * NonActionGuy * TheObiWan: To Billy.

One of the first Flag Fighters assigned to the Anti-Gundam Investigative Task Force "Overflags" under Graham Aker. He seemed to have a friendship with Graham due to their belief in the qualities of the Flag. He was killed in action by Michael Trinity. After his death, Graham and Daryl vowed to avenge his death. Daryl Dodge is a Union soldier with the rank of Master Sergeant. Another first Flag Fighters assigned to the Anti-Gundam Investigative Task Force "Overflags" under Graham Aker. Unlike Graham and Howard, he doesn't share their faith that a Flag can beat the Gundams. He is killed after performing a head-on suicide attack on Gundam Dynames in order to avenge Howard Mason's death. In season 2, Graham [[ICallItVera named his]] Masurao's [[DualWielding two swords]] "Howard" and "Daryl" in their [[strike:loving]] memory.

Well, okay. To make it short, this guy is the resident loser of the series, whose barks are bigger than his bite. He first appears in an exhibition of the Enact and got owned by Setsuna. Later on, he reappears to fight the Gundam again... and got blasted by Tieria without him even trying. He is known as a playboy, but when he meets his new commander Kati Mannequin (and got punched in the face for being late), he instantly fell in love for real and found a new goal in life: to win her heart. He almost defeats Tieria in the desert battle, but got beaten due to the interference of the Trinities. Fortune does smile at him, when the Veda temporarily goes offline; he uses the chance to attack Tieria, but was covered by Lockon. Regardless, that particular attack marks Patrick's only success as he damages a Gundam, and even [[EyeScream robs Lockon off his right eye]]. After much more fighting, he is blasted to smithereens, but was lucky enough to survive. Apparently, this stuck with him: being known as the man who survived a total of 7 encounters with Gundams earned him the nickname ''The Immortal Colasour''. Despite his record of defeats he is not actually a bad pilot. During the desert battle he evades an Tierias attack from near point black range and during the space battle using a GN-X he does a good job evading hits from Lockon. Tropes associated with Patrick: * AppropriatedAppellation * BadassBoast: Until recently, just... the boast. * BoisterousBruiser: Especially when he's trying to impress Kati. * ButtMonkey: From episode 1, whenever he takes the field against a Gundam you know what's about to happen. * CakeEater: Kati is about 4-5 years older than him. * {{Casanova}}: He got a bit better thanks to Kati. * CharacterAlignment: LawfulNeutral [[spoiler:--> LawfulGood]] * CoolLoser * CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Though this takes awhile to show. * [[spoiler:DeathIsDramatic: Subverted.]] * {{Determinator}} * DoggedNiceGuy: To Kati. * EnsembleDarkhorse: Apparently, the fandom loves him.

He a father figure to Soma Pieries, instilling in her a sense of kindness that took even him by surprise.

Also "Pedo Bear", considering that he was kinda close to Soma when she's still having that 'loli' vibe around her, even though Soma was already an adult when first introduced.

Then during episode 25, he phoned Alejandro to let him know [[spoiler:that he, Ribbons, was going to take all of his screen time after Alejandro had been dispatched painfully by Setsuna]]. In season two, Ribbons's role is... considerably expanded. [[spoiler:In fact, he's now the series' BigBad and sees himself as a kindly angel who is leading most of humanity to the stars. The rest of them get to die.]] He's also quite the master of awkward conversation. Just see [[spoiler:the episode where Tieria dresses as a woman]] for a prime example.

Marina is also the head of the Reformist political party, causing her to be very popular among some of her people, but vehemently hated by the conservatives. Inexperienced as a leader, and being only a figurehead, she often has no control over her country's situation despite her wishes for peace. After attracting the attention (probably not [[ChasteHero that kind of attention]]) of Setsuna, she's been unable to shake him off, and now he probably couldn't shake her off. Tropes associated with Marina: * ActualPacifist: Hates weapons so much that she can't even fathom using a gun for self-defense. Somewhat understandable doe to her background, but still... * AyumiTsunematsu: Her seiyuu. * BlueEyes * CharacterAlignment: TrueNeutral: Not sure what's her alignment in the first season, but she's clearly [[ActualPacifist very reluctant to fight]] in the second, [[spoiler:even refusing to hold a gun for defense]]. In the finale, she arguably becomes LawfulGood. * {{Deconstruction}}: She's what [[GundamWing Relena Peacecraft]] would be if portrayed in a very cynical (towards pacifism) series, and [[HolyShitQuotient holy shit]], does she get put through the wringer. ** Also the IdolSinger princess character (think [[GundamSEED Lacus]] [[GundamSEEDDestiny Clyne]]). She's very inspiring with a song she writes about peace, and Setsuna says what everyone in the audience is thinking, that she's a lot more competent as a singer/good will ambassador than as the leader of a country- and he meant it as a compliment. * EarWorm: Her song tends to invoke this to Setsuna, which could be vital in his development. For the audience? [[YourMileageMayVary It depends...]] * EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Probably why she's not Queen, President, or Prime Minister. ** Arguably more like [[SubvertedTrope Everything's Worse With Princesses]] in this case, as good things rarely happen when Marina's on screen. Either to other characters or [[TheWoobie Marina herself]]. ** Technically, she's mostly a figurehead, albeit one with some measure of diplomatic power, but most to all of her efforts keep getting subverted. * {{Expy}}: She's the Relena/Lacus to Setsuna's Heero/Kira. * FallenPrincess: In season 2. * FriendToAllChildren: In season 2. * HeWillNotCrySoICryForHim: Does this for Setsuna. * HimeCut * IdenticalStranger: See ReplacementGoldfish below. * [[spoiler:NeutralFemale]] * {{Odango}}: Her princess hairstyle in season 1. * RealWomenNeverWearDresses: While her idealism - and inability to do much of anything due to her being only a figurehead - never made her at all popular among fandom, the hate for her has been building up and up while season two continues airing ('only good for running children's daycare service'). People want her head on a platter for [[spoiler:essentially stopping Setsuna from killing Ali, since he was distracted by a song she was singing... and ''accidentally'' heard]]. Perhaps it won't matter if [[spoiler:the song ''is'' [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome awesome]], but we speak about a song that makes many audience want to mute their volume.]]. And she was supposed to be the heroine of the series, but it seems that being a pacifist and homely is a ''crime'' according to fandom. * RebelliousPrincess: Deconstructed. She ''tries'' to be one, but never can do anything productive. * ReplacementGoldfish: To a degree, Setsuna sees her as a mother figure - it doens't help that she ''does'' look like a younger version of his MissingMom. * RoyalBlood * TheStraightWillAndGrace: According to Setsuna and her, and they make sure to emphasize this. * [[spoiler: TakingTheBullet: In the last scene of episode 18 of season 2, she blocked a bullet meant for a kid named Josef. Averted in the next episode, as Klaus shoot the gunners down before they pull the trigger.]] * TallDarkAndBishoujo: Her lack of aloofness prevented her from being the SugarWiki/MostTriumphantExample in {{Gundam}}. * [[spoiler: TeamMom: For the Kataron children in season 2.]] * TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Even earlier in Season 1, Shirin came off as more tough compared to Marina, fitting this in an emotional capacity. It just played straighter, with the toughened-up Shirin, in season 2. * TrappedByMountainLions: [[strike: Probably]] in season 2. * WomanInWhite: In the second season. * TheWoobie: Not many good things happen to her. It gets worse in season two, where [[spoiler:Azadistan is burned down by Ali, and then basically ceases to exist as a country afterwards]].

[[spoiler:Why did she lose her family ''and her hand''?]] [[TearJerker SNIFFFF.]] That was the story of Miss Louise Halevy, at least in season 1.

He had a part time job as a pizza delivery boy (his neighbor was in a terrorist paramilitary organization); he dealt with his girlfriend's mother (Azadistan was on the verge of civil war). etc. If he was in trouble, he was being [[TrappedByMountainLions trapped by very boring mountain lions]] that made the fan base wish something bad would just happen already. Then, [[BreakTheCutie it did]]. [[ItGotWorse And some more]]. [[spoiler: His older sister was found dead in an alley. His girlfriend was crippled and hospitalized. And everything that could go wrong, did go wrong, and now the only people on earth that will take him in is the very terrorist organization he hates the most.

He become the official pilot of the Mobile armor afterwards.]] * RelationshipVoiceActor: Saji is voiced by {{Miyu Irino}}, while Setsuna is voiced by MamoruMiyano. The two seiyus previously worked together in KingdomHearts as main characters Sora and Riku. One could notice the [[ActorAllusion similarities of the said characters]] including their plot [[TwoGuysAndAGirl involving a girl]], PowerOfFriendship of sorts and fighting a mysterious organization which includes an [[EvilRedHeads Evil Read Head]] [[PigeonholedVoiceActor voiced by]] KeijiFujiwara.) * TheScrappy: The bashing seems to revolve about these two ideas: "Realistic characters with human ''negative'' reactions to war? In MY Gundam 00 series?" and "How DARES he harsh on my squee and my bishies! ASSHOLE!" ** TakeAThirdOption Ignorant NaiveNewcomer carrying a huge IdiotBall - until he actually admits that and [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap pulls himself out of the Scrappy Heap]]. ** His original status as TheScrappy was probably planned, to make his Level In Badass all the more impressive come Season 2. ** WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: Although there are some fans who still bash him due to this.. * [[spoiler:ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Deconstructed in the second season.

She was obsessed with Celestial Being's founder, Aeolia Schenberg. She believes that by investigating into Aeolia, she can uncover the true motives of Celestial Being. Through her investigation, she interviewed Schenberg's great grandson and other people possibly linking to either the Gundams or Schenberg. Later, she suspected Laguna Harvey, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive president of Linear Train Industries]], to be somehow connected to this and wanted to interview him. She couldn't get permission to interview him, but saw Ali Al-Saachez leaving from his estate and hoped to get any sort of information from him.[[spoiler:.. Which was a ''bad idea''. Ali ''does'' give her the information she wants - only to kill her afterwards.]] Tropes associated with Kinue: * AlliterativeName * AnnaCummer: Her English voice. * AyaEndo: Her seiyuu. * BewareTheHonestOnes: [[spoiler:Because some VillainsNeverLie, especially if he's [[CompleteMonster Ali]] [[ForTheEvulz Al-Saachez]].]] * BrownEyes * ButNotTooForeign * CharacterAlignment: TrueNeutral * CoolBigSis * CurtainsMatchTheWindow * [[spoiler:DyingAlone: [[TearJerker And How!]]]] * [[spoiler:FatalFamilyPhoto]] * GoingForTheBigScoop * HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: [[spoiler:Eventually became her FatalFlaw.]] * HotScoop * InternetBackdraft: [[spoiler: Whether Ali raped her or not before he killed her is debated in many forums.]] * IntrepidReporter * [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]] * [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Father Like Daughter]]: Her father's also a [[IntrepidReporter reporter]].

Ali starts out as a freedom fighter who recruits kids to fight in the name of 'God', this turns out to be false, as he didn't believe in God and was just a terrorist, period. One of those kids was Setsuna, and he also assaulted Ireland at one point, killing Lockon's parents and little sister. Later he became a mercenary and was reunited with Setsuna in battle. He continues to do ''really'' nefarious things afterwards, notably bribing and then killing IntrepidReporter Kinue Crossroad ForTheEvulz. Next, he meets up with Team Trinity, and kills Johann and Michael... for the lulz, incidentally [[HoistByHisOwnPetard hitting the karmic hammer to their sister Nena]] (who had [[spoiler:killed Louise's family]]). He stole Michael's Throne Zwei and was about to kill Nena, until he was interrupted by Setsuna, and the activation of Trans-Arm forced him to retreat. He is later seen in space and engaged in a fatal battle with Lockon; Ali got the Throne Zwei damaged heavily[[spoiler:, but he managed to kill Lockon.]] When TheFederation was formed, Ali was frustrated since [[BloodKnight it takes away his joy: war]]. But it didn't really happen as apparently Ribbons hired him. And the next thing he did in his debut on the second season is... burning down the whole Azadistan, probably [[ForTheEvulz for the lulz]]... [[spoiler: But he finally bought the farm, at Lyle's hands no less.]] Tropes associated with Ali: * ArchEnemy * {{Attack Drone}}s: Both the Throne Zwei and the Arche were equipped with these. * AxCrazy * {{Badass}} * [[BadassBeard Badass]] BeardOfEvil: Shaves it in the second half of the first season. Sports it again during the entire second season. * BadassNormal: Able to defeat Gundams in less tech-advanced suits. * BadSamaritan * BoisterousBruiser: Oh, so much. To NightmareFuel degrees. * BloodKnight: He lives only for war, it's his only source of joy. He even admits it openly. * [[spoiler: BoomHeadshot: What Lyle/Lockon II did to finally put him out.]] * CharacterAlignment: ChaoticEvil: Any wonders? * ColonelKilgore * CompleteMonster: Oh so very much. * CorruptionOfAMinor: And How! * CrazyAwesome * DracoInLeatherPants: People seem to either forget or handwave how horrendous and cruel he is, but others fully acknowledge his [[CompleteMonster monstrous]] status, and like him anyway, mostly because EvilIsCool, but perhaps also because EvilIsSexy.. * EvilGloating * EvilIsCool * EvilIsNotPacifist * EvilIsSexy: He's a horrible person, but ''[[FetishFuelStationAttendant holy crap he's hot]]''. * EvillyAffable * EvilMentor: To Setsuna and the other Kurdish ChildSoldiers. * EvilRedHeads: Maybe one of the worse ''ever'' in the Gundam series. * {{Expy}}: The [[FullMetalPanic Gauron]] to Setsuna's [[FullMetalPanic Sousuke]]. ** Minus the pedophilia, thankfully. [[FoeYay We hope, anyway.]] ** He pilots mostly [[LawOfChromaticSuperiority Red mobile suits]], [[CharClone He is a Char]](?) * FanNickname: Look down... * ForTheEvulz: Yes, most of the atrocities he did are [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment for the lulz]]. The money is nice too, but he mainly does it for fun. * GreenEyes * {{Gundamjack}} * HeroKiller * HeyItsThatVoice: KeijiFujiwara is his Japanese voice, ScottMcNeil is his english voice.. [[BeastWars We now wonder if Prince Ali was a Velociraptor in his past life]].. * HolyShitQuotient * IHaveManyNames * ISurrenderSuckers: [[spoiler:It fails.]] * [[spoiler: KarmicDeath: There's nothing more karmic than ''three'' shots in the face from the [[BackupTwin twin young brother]] of the AcePilot you killed years ago.

Oh, wow.]] ** [[spoiler: HoistByHisOwnPetard: And about frigging time too.]] * LackOfEmpathy * LargeHam * LastSecondChance: [[spoiler: Lyle/Lockon offered him one. [[KarmicDeath He refused]]. BANG he went.]] * LawOfChromaticSuperiority: Look at his mobile suits except the first, his A-shirt, his pilot suit and even his [[EvilRedHeads hair]]. * LovableRogue: He introduced himself as one of these. But that was just a cover for his EVIL. * LoveToHate * MemeticMutation: ''[[FanNickname Prince Ali]], [[{{Aladdin}} Mighty is He!]]''. ** [[spoiler:With how he died, however, the mutation is now degraded into ''"Prince Ali, Mighty '''was''' he!"'']] * MemeticMolester: ''Never ever'' take a car ride with him, ladies!) ** Actually, on second thought, [[MemeticSexGod go ahead and take that ride.]] * MoralEventHorizon: He starts crossing it pretty much from the moment he walks onscreen the first time. * PlayingAgainstType: n a basis that both of his [=VAs=] previously voiced Gundam protagonists. His [[KeijiFujiwara Japanese seiyu]] does [[The08thMSTeam Eledore]], while his [[ScottMcNeil English voice actor]] dubbed [[GundamWing Duo]]. Ali's character seems to be [[CompositeCharacter a mixture of both]], only [[EvilKnockoff evil]]. * PlotArmor: He is known to negate this when fighting the protagonists, but he was protected by it [[spoiler:when Setsuna failed to kill him due to Marina's song interruption.]] Then you know where the hatred for this PlotArmor go: [[spoiler:Poor Marina]]. ** [[spoiler: As of episode 24, turns out [[KilledOffForReal he already sold it]].]] * PsychoForHire * ScarfOfAssKicking: Inverted, but he is shown in flashbacks training ChildSoldiers while wearing it. * SharpDressedMan: He was DressedToKill twice.

He also doubles as TheDragon.]] * TheSociopath * TallDarkAndSnarky: Yes he's tall, but the ''[[CompleteMonster dark]]'' and ''[[MagnificentBastard snarky]]'' parts stand out most. * TattooedCrook * [[spoiler:TooCoolToLive]] * TrappedByMountainLions: He rarely appears in the Season 2 and even then mainly to duel Gundam Meisters a bit in episodes that have very little impact on the overall plot. You would think that it makes sense to actually send an ace of his caliber into important battles, particularly after the trouble of building a custom mobile suit for him... ** Despite that however, he is still VERY dangerous. Well, because [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment he traps character/s like a fierce lion]]. * UnpopularPopularCharacter: The single most hated character in-show; you see, Setsuna hates him for [[spoiler: influencing him in killing his parents, and later on for Neil/Lockon I's death. Neil/Lockon I hates him because he's the leader of the terrorists that took away his family's lives save for his [[BackUpTwin twin brother Lyle/Lockon II]]. Neil almost got his revenge, but he died while doing so]]. Then there's Tieria, who really, really hates him [[spoiler:for killing [[strike:the love of his life]] his best friend and comrade Neil]]. And Don't forget Nena, [[spoiler: who wants him dead for killing her brothers.]] He is also responsible for [[spoiler:the death of Saji's [[HotScoop sister Kinue]]. If he finds out about this, he'll probably join the "I Hate Ali" and "Die Ali, Die" campaigns... if only Lyle/Lockon II didn't kill him first]]. [[DracoInLeatherPants Fans]] [[EvilIsSexy LOVE]] [[EvilIsCool him]]. * WarForFunAndProfit: Mostly for fun. He doesn't care about money much, but if there's a smell of blood somewhere... ---- ::'''Klaus Grado''' [[RebelLeader He is the commander and the de facto leader]] of the Katharon [[LaResistance Rebel Group]], which opposes the [[TheFederation Earth Sphere Federation]] and its [[StateSec elite squad A-Laws]].

After Nena's death, Feldt ''may'' take over as the new Veronica for being more {{fanservice}}y than Marina.]] * BunnyEarsLawyer: Okay, he has severe social problems and thinks he IS his Gundam, but that doesn't stop him from kicking ass. * CargoShip: His [[strike:obsession]] over-attachment to his Gundams led fans to pair him with them. * CatchPhrase: "[[IamTheTrope I AM GUNDAM!]]", "Exterminating the targets!" * CharacterAlignment: ChaoticGood --> NeutralGood: He's the most impulsive meister, at least in the first season. In the second, [[CharacterDevelopment he matured a lot and becomes more restrained]]. Yet he will still not hesitate to do the right thing even if others will hate him. * CharacterDevelopment: It's obviously not as extreme as some of the other characters, but its interesting to note the change in attitude over the show, from emotionally repressed, to still stoic, but more caring. His aloofness is now more out of being a veteran of combat and he even dispenses advice to both Saji and Lyle that get them out of their respective funks. Essentially, he's cooler. * ChasteHero: First season. He sneaks into Marina's bedroom ''at night''. Is unable to understand the UnfortunateImplications. ** CelibateHero: Second season. He's more aware of the subject, but still... * [[ChildSoldiers Child Soldier]] * ContemplateOurNavels: Remember when he said he did not want to write a letter to anyone about anything? He lied. * DarkAndTroubledPast * [[spoiler:EleventhHourSuperPower: The Trans-Am Burst which dramatically expands the range of the various abilities of his Gundam in Transam Mode. And, for that matter, Transam itself played something of a similar role in season 1.]] * [[spoiler: EvolutionaryLevels: He became an innovator in the end, as a result of using the 00 Raiser.]] * {{Expy}}: Said to be [[CompositeCharacter a mixture between]] [[GundamWing Heero Yuy]] and [[FullMetalPanic Sousuke Sagara]]. He is also of Amuro [[spoiler:since he said something similar about Red Suits like when he saw Ali in his [[MobileSuitGundam RED]] gundam]] * FanNickname: [[ChildSoldiers Jihad-kun]], [[MetalGear Solid Setsuna]], [[DeathNote Kira and Set-Light or Setsulight.]] For the last three, look down.. * HatesBeingTouched: In regards to both himself and [[CargoShip his Gundams]]. * HazelEyes: [[spoiler:During and after his Innovation late in season 2, he now also has EyesOfGold.]] * TheHero: Naturally, although he is previously TheLancer to [[TheAce Neil]] [[spoiler:until the latter's death.]] * HeyItsThatVoice: MamoruMiyano is his Japanese voice, BradSwaile is his English voice... [[DeathNote we now wonder if Setsuna keeps a black notebook and a bag of potato chips inside Exia or 00]]. Meisters]] ** [[ActorAllusion Or apple, as seen in the first ending sequence.]] * HollywoodAtheist * HolyShitQuotient * HotBlooded: He has his moments. * HoYay: With [[spoiler:both]] Lockon, Tieria, Saji and some FoeYay with Graham and Ali. * IHaveManyNames * ILikeSwords: Obviously because HeroesPreferSwords. Let's see what he has... ** AbsurdlySharpBlade ** [[spoiler:{{Attack Drone}}s: The 00 Qan[T]'s six blade bits.]] ** {{BFS}} [[SwordBeam Beam]]: The Trans-Am Raiser. ** [[spoiler:BifurcatedWeapon: The 00 Qan[T]'s six blade bits can combine with the GN Sword.]] ** BladeBelowTheShoulder: Exia has these. ** CoolSword ** DualWielding: Exia and 00 have this as an arsenal. ** LaserBlade ** SwissArmyWeapon ** ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: Especially if targets are hard to reach. * ImprobableAge: 16 in the first season, 21 in the second. Somewhat justified because of his backstory. * ItsPersonal: He * hates* Ali. Period. [[spoiler:This will likely extend to Ribbons as well, now that Setsuna has learned that his previously-unidentified "hero" from childhood is [[DarkMessiah evil]].]] * LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Exia has this. [[spoiler:And judging from TheMovie trailer, the 00 Qan[T] will have a HUGE one with six [[AttackDrone blade bits]] attached to it for extra offense.]] * MagneticHero * [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend Marina Is Not His Girlfriend, And She Says The Same About Him]]: The scene is notable for having absolutely none of the usual embarassment involved in this trope; both deliver an absolutely deadpan denial. ** He emphasized that again when [[spoiler:Feldt gave him flowers and thought Marina might be mad about this.]] * MenDontCry: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] when [[spoiler:Lockon I/Neil died where he shed lots of ManlyTears.]] * [[spoiler:TheMessiah: Being the first genuine Innovator, he fits. Not to mention his [[PropheticName Prophetic]] {{Codename}}.]] * MessianicArchetype * MyHeroZero: Idolizes the 0 Gundam. In season 2, he pilots the titular 00 Gundam. [[spoiler:And in TheMovie, the 00 Qan[T].]] * MysteriousMiddleInitial: Subverted that it's not his real name. [[spoiler:And said {{codename}} has a [[PropheticName prophetic meaning]].]] * MythologyGag: His birthday is April 7, 2291. In the real world, ''MobileSuitGundam'' was first broadcast on Japanese television on April 7, 1979. [[GundamWing Relena Peacecraft/Darlian]] also shares the same birthdate. * NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: [[WordOfGod He is named after]] the main star of ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turtles_Can_Fly Turtles Can Fly]]'', the first film to be made in Iraq after the fall of Saddam Hussein. The film is about war orphans. * TheNapoleon --> TallDarkAndHandsome: He was visibly short in season 1, but he was able to [[ShesAllGrownUp catch]] [[FanServicePack up]] in Season 2. * NotGoodWithPeople: In season 1 at least. * PapaWolf: Very much so in season 2, sensing his comrades all on the brink of death pissed him off to the point that he [[spoiler:unknowingly initiates the "[[EleventhHourSuperPower Trans-AM burst mode]]", completely turning the tide of the battle.]] * [[spoiler: [[PropheticName Prophetic]] {{Codename}}: ''A Moment From The Holy Eternity''. If you translate it to Japanese except the ''From'' , which you will remove the other three letters after ''F'', you'll get ''Setsuna F[[strike:rom]] Seiei''. [[WordOfGod The Director]] says it represents the moments of revolutions in the long history of mankind, hinting at [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic Setsuna being the true Innovator, the one who is going to bring revolution to mankind]].]] ** If that is not enough, [[spoiler:Just watch episode 24 where his mobile suit enable global telepathy, break the mind control powers of certain innovators, and reverse the form of radiation poisoning that had been slowly killing a couple characters. Mind, we already knew it could do all of these; just not on that scale.]] * ScarfOfAssKicking: Inverted. He wears one only in his civilian outfit, so he does most of his asskicking when he's ''not'' wearing it. * ScreamingWarrior * SelfMadeOrphan * SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Saji and him are like this in season 2. * ShipperOnDeck: Saji/Louise fanboy in season 2, to the extreme of [[spoiler: slashing off Andrei Smirnov's A-Head when [[MurderTheHypotenuse he attempted to kill Saji]].]] * ShirtlessScene: He and H/Allelujah in the second ED. * ShoutOut: His entire characterization has many references to SquareEnix games, namely; ** KingdomHearts: For his RelationshipVoiceActor with Saji. ** FinalFantasyVII: For having Exia use the omni-slash against Throne Zwei. ** FinalFantasyVIII: First for his rivalry with Graham that mirrors that of Squall Leonheart and Seifer Almassy's. Second with his Gundams using GN blades (GN is sometimes pronounced as "gun" in this series, you get the idea). Third with [[spoiler:the 00 Raiser's Trans-Am Raiser being identical to Squall's Blasting Zone LimitBreak]]. ** His personality is also similar to typical FinalFantasy main leads, especially [[FinalFantasyVII Cloud]] and [[FinalFantasyVIII Squall]]. * [[ThatManIsDead Soran Ibrahim Is Dead]]: And if you mention that name to Setsuna, chances are he'll be shocked. ''[[HeroicBSOD Very, very shocked]]''. * SpellMyNameWithAnS: His last name is Ibrahim, Ebrahim or Ybrahim? * StalkerWithACrush: Subverted. He follows Marina around for quite a number of times in season one, but that's due to him being a NotGoodWithPeople ChasteHero. * TheStoic ** NotSoStoic [[spoiler: '''"[[SayMyName LOCKOOOOOOOOONNNNNNN!!!!!]]"''']] ** StoicWoobie * TheStraightWillAndGrace: He says he and Marina are like this. * TheThreeFacesOfEve: [[http://daitrombe.net/image/show/27051 His three potential]] {{love interests}} fit this trope really well, with Marina being the mother and wife figure, Nena being the child and seductress, and finally, [[spoiler:Feldt]] as the maiden and wife figure. * {{Tykebomb}} * [[spoiler: WalkingTheEarth: He, Lyle/Lockon II and the rest of CB at the end of the series. Not just the Earth, but space as well.]] * [[spoiler: WhereItAllBegan: He ends up destroying the O Gundam, the very Mobile Suit that saved him during the very first episode using ''his'' original mobile suit, the Exia Gundam. Also, before the said battle took place, he had the Exia descend to battle [[ATwinkleInTheSky in the same manner]] during its debut.]] ---- ::'''Lockon Stratos''' The resident sniper of Celestial Being and the pilot of Gundam Dynames. Lockon acts like a big bro towards the rest of the Meisters, and is the most easy going, accompanied with a Haro. [[DarkAndTroubledPast His past is dark]], as he was a survivor of a terrorist attack (initiated by the same group Setsuna was under). Lockon eventually got to know better and directed his anger to Ali Al-Saachez. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, when fighting Ali himself, Lockon was badly wounded and was eventually killed, but not after he shot down Ali's Throne Zwei, severely ruining the machine and considerably put him out of action for a good while.]] Thus was the story of the Lockon known as Neil Dylandy. In the second season, [[spoiler:Neil's twin younger brother Lyle, a member of Kataron,]] took the name of Lockon Stratos and pilots the successor of Dynames: the Gundam Cherudim. He's just as skilled as his predecessor, but at first he [[ObfuscatingStupidity tends to act as if he knows nothing about piloting]] (though later, he shows a more intense and emotional side). [[spoiler:He is set to pilot Gundam Zabanya in the upcomming [[TheMovie movie]].]] Tropes associated with Lockon: * [[spoiler: AlexZahara: The twins' English VA.]] * {{Badass}} * BadassNormal: Their teammates are two {{Tyke bomb}}s (a [[ChildSoldiers Child]] and a SuperSoldier to be specific) [[spoiler:and an ArtificialHuman]]. They both hold their own. * {{BFG}} * CatchPhrase: "Sniping the target!" * DarkAndTroubledPast: Both of them [[spoiler: lost their parents and sister in a terrorist attack years ago.]] * DeadLittleSister: Both had one[[spoiler:, her name's Amy. Although Neil keeps his rage and angst to a minimum, it's still there. He subverts the standard of becoming an AntiHero, and instead fills the gaps with Celestial Being's members. Lyle on the other-hand [[IGotBetter moved on with his life]] after the incident.]] * {{Determinator}}s: Both of them [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome are able to pull impressive showings while either injured or using battered Gundams]] during their respective battles in each season's finale. * DivergentCharacterEvolution * EstrogenBrigadeBait * FriendlySniper: The [[Pantheon/{{Weapons}} Gods]] of the trope. * [[spoiler: GenerationXerox: Each twin had an Innovator (Tieria and Anew) as a lover. Unlike Neil however, Lyle was the one who pursued Anew, who returned his feelings. See also NotSoDifferent below.]] * GreenEyes: [[spoiler:ItRunsInTheFamily perhaps?]] * GunsAkimbo * TheGunslinger * HolyShitQuotient * LegacyCharacter * MacrossMissileMassacre: All the Lockons' Gundams have these. * [[MeaningfulName Meaningful]] {{Codename}}: In reference to their aiming and firearms expertise. * NotSoDifferent: Despite [[spoiler:Lyle]]'s claim that he is not like [[spoiler:his brother Neil]], his time spent with Celestial Being had some instances that parallels him to [[spoiler:his twin brother]]. * {{Revenge}}: [[spoiler:Neil's biggest motivation. Lyle subverts this as he does NOT fully embrace it.]] ** [[spoiler: Double-Subverted thanks to loss of Lyle's girlfriend Anew. His bullet will ''very'' likely either go through Setsuna or an Innovator.]] *** [[spoiler: As of episode 24, his bullet went through ''Ali''.]] And the trope was ''triple-subverted'' because [[spoiler: Lyle did NOT kill Ali to avenge his twin brother. He ''did'' try to give Ali a LastSecondChance, the other refused, and then BANG. ''Wow''.]] * [[spoiler: SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: It should be noted that the twins are ''both'' Sensitive and Manly men, depending on the situation they are in.]] * [[spoiler: SeparatedAtBirth: Heavily subverted, as both Neil and Lyle decided to stay out from each other's life. Isn't it sad ([[IsntItSad not this trope]], [[TearJerker the literal meaning]])..]] ** [[spoiler: The fact that they NeverGotToSayGoodBye to each other before Neil dies, makes it ''[[TearJerker even sadder]]''.]] * [[spoiler: ShinichiroMiki: The twins' seiyu.]] * [[spoiler: SiblingYinYang: So much that their names tell it; [[ThemeTwinNaming Neil means cloud, while Lyle means Island]].]] * TakeUpMySword * [[spoiler: UncannyFamilyResemblance]] With Neil: * TheAce: Arguably fits the role of TheHero better than Setsuna, shown to be very respected by the rest of CB, and a BadassNormal to boot. ** BrokenAce: A milder case. Yes he is a great and respected team leader to his comrades, but deep inside, he's a guy with ''huge'' issues on revenge. * AlwaysSomeoneBetter: [[spoiler:He is this to Lyle. [[TearJerker Isn't It Sad]]?]] * BerserkButton: Terrorism. [[MoralDissonance He is aware of the irony.]] * BewareTheNiceOnes * BigBrotherMentor * [[spoiler: BreakingTheFourthWall: He awfully seems to be addressing the audience with his last words: ''"Hey, are you all satisfied with this kind of world? I... hate it."'']] * CharacterAlignment: TrueNeutral: Although he's genuinely a NiceGuy, he is a borderline case of [[SelfishGoodSelfishEvil Selfish Good]] for being ''very obsessed'' for {{revenge}}. * [[spoiler: DeadPersonConversation: Manages to tell Tieria to calm down when he's struggling with inner turmoil. He would later do this to Setsuna as well, telling him the past can never be changed.]] * [[spoiler:DeathByDisfigurement: Look down]] * [[spoiler:DeathIsDramatic]] * [[spoiler: DyingAlone InSpace]] * [[spoiler: DyingMomentOfAwesome]] * EvenTheGuysWantHim: Lots of fanboys go weak at the knees for him.

VERY Awesome. * HandsomeLech: Subverted, since [[spoiler: it's a part of Lyle's JerkassFacade to distance himself from Neil's borderline MartyStu image among the Celestial Being crowd and tell them he's no one's ReplacementGoldfish.]] * [[spoiler: HeartbrokenBadass: After Anew's death.]] * IndyPloy * JerkWithAHeartOfGold: One who's willing to put on a JerkassFacade if needed. * TheLancer * LetsGetDangerous: He's quite a daredevil really. * MenDontCry: [[AvertedTrope Averted hard]] when [[spoiler:Anew died where he shed lots of ManlyTears ''and'' goes on a HeroicBSOD.]] * MiddleChildSyndrome: He fits this well[[spoiler:, considering that Neil was the older twin and they had a DeadLittleSister.]] * ObfuscatingStupidity: Made even more apparent in [[AllThereInTheManual 4 months for 2312]] [[spoiler:where he found out that Anew was an innovator but neglected to tell her or anyone else]]. * RelationshipVoiceActor: The seiyus of [[spoiler: Lyle (Shinichiro Miki) and Anew (Ryouko Shiraishi)]] also does [[spoiler: Bob and Chiaki]] from TenjouTenge. [[spoiler: The said characters are also lovers.]] What's more, in a scene in the TenjouTenge manga [[spoiler: Chiaki protests about Bob spacing out while making love to her]], while in episode 18 [[spoiler:Lyle protests about Anew spacing out while they're kissing]]. Talk about payback. * [[spoiler: ReplacementScrappy: Even when his partners ''do'' warm up to him, a good part of the fandom just ''won't'' forgive Lyle for not being a carbon copy of his twin brother Neil.

Allelujah is a product of a SuperSoldier program, but a failed one. He has another personality named "[[SuperpoweredEvilSide Hallelujah]]". While Allelujah is calm and amiable, Hallelujah is a sociopathic person who laughs in the face of deaths... of many of his enemies. In the events of the series, however, Allelujah lost Hallelujah and was forced to continue on his own. [[spoiler:HesBack...]] He seems to be acquainted towards WhiteHairedPrettyGirl Soma Peries, another product of that said program. He knew her as ''[[SayMyName MARIE!]] Parfacy'', which suggests a history between them. [[spoiler: After [[IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight succesfully reaching out to her]], they got together and he took her to CB with him, eventually becoming a BattleCouple later in the story. They are set to pilot Gundam Harute in the upcoming [[TheMovie movie]].]] Tropes according to Allelujah: * AlliterativeName: Hallelujah Haptism. * [[AntiHero Anti]] HeroicSafeMode * AxCrazy: Hallelujah. * [[spoiler: BattleCouple: With his girlfriend Soma/Marie, in the second season. When she returns to action in the GN Archer, she docks it with the Arios Gundam together and form the Arios Archer.]] * TheBigGuy: Allelujah in season 1. In season 2, he became more of a male version of TheChick. IsntItSad? Hallelujah on the other hand fights more like TheBrute due to being the TokenEvilTeammate. * BloodKnight: Hallelujah. * BoundAndGagged: Spends the first few episodes of Season 2 like this. * [[ManInWhite Boy In White]]: During his time at the HRL SuperSoldier program shown in {{Flashback}}s. ** WhiteShirtOfDeath: Subverted during his escape. Played straight by the other SuperSoldier escapees Hallelujah killed though. * CharacterAlignment: Allelujah is NeutralGood, while Hallelujah is ChaoticEvil. [[spoiler: [[FanNickname Doubleujah]] is probably ChaoticNeutral.]] * [[ChildSoldiers Child Soldier]] * CombatPragmatist: Hallelujah, [[spoiler:a notable example being him smacking Hilling's Garazzo around using his beam rifle as a club]]. * CrazyAwesome: Hallelujah. * DarkAndTroubledPast * DracoInLeatherPants: Hallelujah. Oh God, HALLELUJAH! * EvilIsCool: Isn't that right, Hallelujah? * EvilIsHammy: Hallelujah. * EvilLaugh: Hallelujah ''loves'' doing this. * [[spoiler: ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Trailers for TheMovie show him with much longer hair.]] * FanNickname: [[spoiler: Doubleujah]] for obvious reasons, Baptismal Boy for is name and [[TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal]] Haptism due to his first appearance in season 2. * [[spoiler: [[FirstGirlWins First Guy Wins]] and VictoriousChildhoodFriend: He is the very first boy that Marie knew personally and befriended. And they [[OfficialCouple end up together]].]] * FriendsWithBenefits: Hinted to be this with Sumeragi.

When he does, much ass is kicked.]] * ImAHumanitarian: Implied, but he wouldn't be above it. When stranded in space as a child and running out of food and oxygen, Hallelujah shoots his friends, [[UnfortunateImplications blood dripping down his face and front]]. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation You may draw your own conclusion]]. Goes into NoPartyLikeADonnerParty on Allelujah's part, given the circumstances, but for [[ChaoticEvil Hallelujah]]... ** At one point in the first season, Hallelujah mentions that he's not above drinking blood to survive (if I recall correctly), for further implications. * IsntItSad: He got pretty shafted for facetime for the latter part of season one, CrowningMomentOfAwesome aside. It ''seems'' he'll be getting a bit more of spotlight in the second, what with the subplot involving him and Soma. ** Sadly, after his/Soma's subplot was resolved, the two faded into the background again but still made a good showing whenever they did appear. * JekyllAndHyde * LightningBruiser: His Gundams are all hard-hitting speedsters.

Let's just hope they don't end up StrangledByTheRedString...]] ** [[spoiler: [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming They do not]].]] * NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Whenever Hallelujah emerges, [[spoiler: notable examples include episode 10 (poor Adjutant Ming.), and in the finale where he tears Hilling Care a new asshole]]. * PeekABangs: And take warning at ''which'' eye is covered... * PutTheLaughterInSlaughter: Hallelujah loves this. * TheQuietOne: Allelujah. Only Allelujah. * RaceLift: He's originally [[ButNotTooForeign mixed]] [[{{Lzherusskie}} Russian]] and [[ChinesePeople Chinese]], but was {{retcon}}ed as a [[UsefulNotes/{{Kazakhstan}} Kazakhs]]. * RealNameAsAnAlias: [[spoiler:Marie actually named him Allelujah.]] * TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Hallelujah does this to his opponents, specially if he's about to kill them. * ReligiousAndMythologicalThemeNaming: Duh! * ReluctantWarrior: Not as pronounced as most examples but he definitely has a thing against killing people, especially if they can't really fight back. He expresses some self-disgust when having to bomb a base and expresses relief when he gets to bomb a crop field. Since Hallelujah is a total psychopath, he has a few moments arguing with himself. * RichardIanCox: His English voice actor. * SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Allelujah and Hallelujah can be seen as the two in one body. Allelujah is a sensitive person while Hallelujah is a sociopathic tough guy. [[spoiler: Likewise, his/their girlfriend/s Soma/Marie can also be seen as a two in one body for [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl this trope's female counterpart]].]] * ShirtlessScene: He and Setsuna in the second ED. * SplitPersonality: Triggered by stress and sparkles. ** [[spoiler: SplitPersonalityMerge: Did this in both season's finale.]] * SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[IncrediblyLamePun Hallelujah!]] * SuperSoldier: [[YouAreNumberSix He is number E-057]] to be specific. * SurvivorGuilt: See ImAHumanitarian above. * SwissArmyWeapon: The Kyrios is equipped with a [[LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe a shield]] that can also function as [[BladeBelowTheShoulder a pincher]].

Seriously, except for his battle against Revive Revival, he just can't win tough battles on his own. [[spoiler:It takes Hallelujah to re-emerge to beat the shit out of his opponents.]]) ---- ::'''Tieria Erde''' He... yes, that ''is'' a "he". ([[MemeticMutation Be careful! It's a trap!]]). Anyway, ''he'' is the fourth of the Meisters, piloting Gundam Virtue (and Nadleeh) and later Seravee (and Seraphim). Tieria is known to be able to establish a direct connection to Veda, Celestial Being's supercomputer, and acts aloof and bemeaning towards the rest of the Meisters. This, however, changes due to the interactions he has with Lockon Stratos later on, where he starts to act more human-like. He is serious and pragmatic, but his past is completely shrouded by mystery. [[spoiler:Seems like he got an EvilTwin amongst Ribbons' company. He is killed physically by Ribbons near the end of the series, but his mind got transfered to Veda, abling him to return as a [[VirtualGhost holographic figure]] from time to time. He is set to pilot the Raphael Gundam in the upcomming [[TheMovie movie]].]] Tropes associated with Tieria: * [[spoiler: AllLoveIsUnrequited: The fact that Tieria had strong feelings for the first Lockon has been pretty much accepted by fandom, though the ''exact'' nature and extent are heavily debated. While Lockon ''did'' care for Tieria, though, his issues would've made ''very'' hard for him to fully reciprocate his teammate's love for him.]] * AloofAlly: Pre-CharacterDevelopment. * [[spoiler: AmbiguouslyGay / StraightGay / {{Gayngster}}: Some speculate he qualifies as either one due to his feelings for Neil, but, like the exact nature of his feelings, this is debated.]] * ArmorPiercingSlap: If he's not the one pimp-slapping people, he is the one ''getting'' slapped. * [[spoiler:ArtificialHuman]]: Strongly hinted at since season one, but not explicitly stated [[spoiler:until episode 7 of season two.]] * [[spoiler: AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence]] * [[spoiler:AttractiveBentGender: [[DroppedABridgetOnHim AAAARRRGGH]]!!!!]] * [[spoiler: BecomeARealBoy: Both adhered to and subverted. He learns to live like a human over the course of the series. He becomes attached to Neil Dylandy, breaks away from VEDA, and adopts parts of the Ptolemaois crew as a surrogate family. For a time he even insists that he IS human. Yet in the end, he gives up his physical body, accepts himself for what he is, and finds fulfillment by merging with VEDA as an AI.]] * BerserkButton: A couple, but he cycles through them. He started out so violently devoted to Veda that if anyone (i.e. Setsuna and Allelujah) messed up its plans he'd lock them in a padded room for a week at best, and try to ''kill'' them at worst. After [[spoiler:Veda ditches him,]] he throws all of his affection onto [[spoiler: Neil "Lockon Stratos" Dylandy,]] and God help you if [[spoiler:you insult him in front of Tieria.]] * {{BFG}}: A trademark of his Gundams. * {{Bishonen}} * [[spoiler: BoomHeadshot: Subverted that he didn't [[NotQuiteDead quite died]].]] * CargoShip: Many fans jokingly (or sometimes not) ship him with Veda due to his total obsession with it in the first season. Said fans were also pretty amused by him mentioning Veda in S2 episode 18 when most other characters were thinking of loved ones - though in fairness, [[spoiler:the mission at the time ''was'' all about taking Veda back from Ribbons's control.]] * CharacterAlignment: LawfulNeutral --> NeutralGood --> LawfulGood: He used to think the rules set by Veda were everything, and he's even willing to kill his fellow meisters who break it. Things changed when [[spoiler:Veda gets hijacked and ditches him]], and his following interactions with Neil furthered his CharacterDevelopment, allowing him to break away from Veda. [[spoiler:But with Veda's recapture in the season 2 finale and his merging with it, he finally re-accepted his purpose as an Innovade while still retaining his ''own'' perception on what's right or wrong, unlike before.]] * ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler:The TRIAL system]]. * [[spoiler:DeathIsCheap: As for all other Innovators.]] * [[DefrostingIceQueen Defrosting Ice Lord]], thanks to his CharacterDevelopment. * EvilTwin: Regene Regetta. [[spoiler:They have the same DNA. Events on episode 24 of Season 2 will make you wonder about the "Evil" part though.]] * FanNickname: "Vowels", because his name is full of 'em. Also "[[MoeMoe Moeria]]", because his fangirls think he looks ''adorable'' when he's upset. * FetishFuelStationAttendant: His background story pretty much confirms that he is a male version of RobotGirl, he dons a pair of [[{{Meganekko}} glasses]], is very much a male {{Tsundere}}, is so pretty that he'd count as a TRAP, which is perfect for you who want to dress him up with all those fetishized female outfit, then... [[spoiler:[[WholesomeCrossdresser Goes all out in crossdressing by using fake boobs, a pretty dress and a very much feminine voice.]]]] And if you think that's not enough, he even gets a gratuitious ShowerScene. * FourIsDeath: He is the '''fourth''' meister. He piloted '''four''' Gundams in the series, not counting the 00 Gundam seen in a FlashBack, including the GN-00'''4''' Nadleeh. Speaking of the 00 Gundam, it is the ''only'' '''fourth''' generation Gundam and it's powered by two GN Drives; one from the very first (O) Gundam and the other is from Setsuna's previous (Exia) Gundam that was part of the third generation Gundams (It's 1+ 3='''4'''). In the second season, [[spoiler:he is revealed to be part of the Innovades, a group that consist of '''four''' pairs. And finally, guess what happened to him near the GrandFinale? Yup, he was killed, [[NotQuiteDead only physically]], but still killed.

These all are capable of sprouting hands equipped with beam sabers in addition to the Seravee's normal pair, allowing Seravee to simultaneously fight with ''six beam sabers'' at one time. * [[spoiler: MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning: Ribbons struck him down, in which he merged with Veda and became more powerful than Ribbons could ever imagine.]] ** To clarify after he [[spoiler: is maimed and killed by Ribbons, his consciousness merges with Veda.]] Then he [[spoiler:knocks every last ship he can out of the sky and then schools Setsuna on plans of Aeolia Schenberg, and he does all of this ''while shot in the head''.]] Easily, Tieria's biggest CrowningMomentOfAwesome. * MysteriousPast: [[spoiler:While [[ArtificialHuman his origins]] are revealed in season two, his past STILL remain a mystery.]] * [[spoiler: NotQuiteDead]] * [[spoiler: PinocchioSyndrome: He "suffers" from these in the second season.]] * PronounTrouble: His choice of first-person pronoun in Japanese is indicative of his mental state; masculine "''ore''" pre-defrostment, more reserved "''boku''" after he's defrosted, and suspiciously gender-neutral "''watashi''" at his most fragile. How the English dub will deal with this remains to be seen... ** He once even managed to use all three of these in a row (''ore'' to ''boku'' to ''watashi'') when he cried on screen the first time. * RealMenWearPink (While he's hardly Mr Super Manly Man, that pink cardigan of his definitely counts. * RealNameAsAnAlias * RedEyesTakeWarning ** EyesOfGold: Everytime he connects with Veda.

It was a trap, yeah, but he made such a GREAT trap that fangirls were all "We love T-chan as male AND female, kthx".]] ** Despite Lockon taking all the credit, there are a fair share of male fans that also go weak in the knees for him. * TallDarkAndSnarky: Pre-CharacterDevelopment. * [[spoiler:TokenNonHuman]] * {{Tsundere}}: Arguably, after his defrostment. * {{Ubermensch}} * ViewerGenderConfusion: If it's not for his voice, he'd pass as a girl, easily! And yet he ''still'' manages to cause a lot on confusion among fans... who knows, he may well be a GenderBender. One of the Gundams he's used is called Nadleeh, after all... ** As it so happens, [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary material]] has recently stated that, in ''00'''s early planning stages, Tieria was going to be a [[{{Bifauxnen}} beautiful woman disguised as a man]]. By the time the producers commissioned the character design from Yun Kouga, though, they'd already changed their minds and asked her to design the pretty boy we all know instead. *** ...God...[[WhatCouldHaveBeen God damn it]]...[[MsFanservice WRY?!]] * [[spoiler: VirtualGhost: The latest movie trailer shows him appearing as a holographic figure making him ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.)]] * [[spoiler: TheVoice: After Ribbons gunned him to death, [[DeathIsCheap his mind left his physical body and merged with Veda]].

In season two, she continues her work as a bridge bunny, with [[CharacterDevelopment a more open personality]]. Tropes associated with Feldt: * AllLoveIsUnrequited: As sweet as her crush on Lockon was, he only saw her as a substitute younger sister at best... [[spoiler:and then he died.

Then when you add the fact that both her parents died just a little after she was born..though it probably explains why she was so withdrawn in season 1]]. * WrenchWench: Her background info [[InformedAbility implies]] she is one, stating that she has a wealth of mechanics related knowledge, and can troubleshoot a GN drive.

Not to the point of being TrappedByMountainLions, but after he got AnAesop delivered to him, he was pretty much sidelined for the rest of the season. * KatanasAreJustBetter * [[LargeHam Large]] [[strike:[[IncrediblyLamePun Gra]]]][[LargeHam Ham]]: Even amongst a particularly hammy cast, Graham is easily one of the largest hams in the show and only gets hammier in S2.

This also sums up his battle strategy when fighting Gundams, albeit with slightly more success than Patrick. * LetsGetDangerous * McNinja: Despite his increasingly Japanese motif, he is still an American. * OccidentalOtaku * OneManArmy: A-LAWS pretty much lets him do whatever he wants by himself. * TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou- [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Yes Setsuna]], [[CaptainObvious You!]] * PaperThinDisguise: In season 2. * PaulDobson: His English VA. * PetTheDog: In a meta-sense it sounds like [[spoiler:he'll be important in TheMovie]].

Billy is a former classmate of Sumeragi Li Noriega [[spoiler:(aka Leesa Kujo)]] and [[WhatAnIdiot inadvertently]] leaks information about "Project G" to her and Celestial Being. After the death of Professor Eifman and Howard Mason during an attack by Team Trinity, Billy uses one of the recently acquired GN Drives to upgrade Graham's Flag unit to the GN-Flag in order to fight the Gundams. By the second season, [[spoiler:Billy is taking care of a despondent Kujo, still unaware that she was a member of Celestial Being until Setsuna appears to retrieve her.

Tropes associated with Ralph: * CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood * CoolOldGuy * TheEngineer * GadgeteerGenius * HeKnowsTooMuch: While investigating over Celestial Being, Eifman made a revelation. He realized somehow the correlation between the Jupiter incident 120 years ago and Celestial Being gave Eifman an epiphany over Aeolia Schenberg's true philosophical intentions; his revelations were too late. His own computer monitor revealed a message,"[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin You have witnessed too much.]]" Shortly after, the Thrones attacked and Eins fired its [[{{BFG}} GN Mega Launcher]], vaporizing him before he could reveal the truth to anyone. * KilledOffForReal * MentorArchetype * MrFixIt * NonActionGuy * TheObiWan: To Billy.

Daryl Dodge is a Union soldier with the rank of Master Sergeant. Another first Flag Fighters assigned to the Anti-Gundam Investigative Task Force "Overflags" under Graham Aker. Unlike Graham and Howard, he doesn't share their faith that a Flag can beat the Gundams. He is killed after performing a head-on suicide attack on Gundam Dynames in order to avenge Howard Mason's death. In season 2, Graham [[ICallItVera named his]] Masurao's [[DualWielding two swords]] "Howard" and "Daryl" in their [[strike:loving]] memory.

Well, okay. To make it short, this guy is the resident loser of the series, whose barks are bigger than his bite. He first appears in an exhibition of the Enact and got owned by Setsuna. Later on, he reappears to fight the Gundam again... and got blasted by Tieria without him even trying. He is known as a playboy, but when he meets his new commander Kati Mannequin (and got punched in the face for being late), he instantly fell in love for real and found a new goal in life: to win her heart. He almost defeats Tieria in the desert battle, but got beaten due to the interference of the Trinities. Fortune does smile at him, when the Veda temporarily goes offline; he uses the chance to attack Tieria, but was covered by Lockon. Regardless, that particular attack marks Patrick's only success as he damages a Gundam, and even [[EyeScream robs Lockon off his right eye]]. After much more fighting, he is blasted to smithereens, but was lucky enough to survive. Apparently, this stuck with him: being known as the man who survived a total of 7 encounters with Gundams earned him the nickname ''The Immortal Colasour''. Despite his record of defeats he is not actually a bad pilot. During the desert battle he evades an Tierias attack from near point black range and during the space battle using a GN-X he does a good job evading hits from Lockon. Tropes associated with Patrick: * AppropriatedAppellation * BadassBoast: Until recently, just... the boast. * BoisterousBruiser: Especially when he's trying to impress Kati. * ButtMonkey: From episode 1, whenever he takes the field against a Gundam you know what's about to happen. * CakeEater: Kati is about 4-5 years older than him. * {{Casanova}}: He got a bit better thanks to Kati. * CharacterAlignment: LawfulNeutral [[spoiler:--> LawfulGood]] * CoolLoser * CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Though this takes awhile to show. * [[spoiler:DeathIsDramatic: Subverted.]] * {{Determinator}} * DoggedNiceGuy: To Kati. * EnsembleDarkhorse: Apparently, the fandom loves him.

He a father figure to Soma Pieries, instilling in her a sense of kindness that took even him by surprise.

Also "Pedo Bear", considering that he was kinda close to Soma when she's still having that 'loli' vibe around her, even though Soma was already an adult when first introduced. This actually comes from his Japanese nickname "Kuma-san", meaning "Bear". * GeniusBruiser: An [[AcePilot very good mobile suit pilot]] and an excellent [[TheStrategist strategist]]. * GoodScarsEvilScars: Subverted: He's a good and reasonable man, but has a HUGE facial scar typical of bad guys. * HeroAntagonist: To Celestial Being. * HesJustHiding: Played around.

Marina is also the head of the Reformist political party, causing her to be very popular among some of her people, but vehemently hated by the conservatives. Inexperienced as a leader, and being only a figurehead, she often has no control over her country's situation despite her wishes for peace. After attracting the attention (probably not [[ChasteHero that kind of attention]]) of Setsuna, she's been unable to shake him off, and now he probably couldn't shake her off. Tropes associated with Marina: * ActualPacifist: Hates weapons so much that she can't even fathom using a gun for self-defense. Somewhat understandable doe to her background, but still... * AyumiTsunematsu: Her seiyuu. * BlueEyes * CharacterAlignment: TrueNeutral: Not sure what's her alignment in the first season, but she's clearly [[ActualPacifist very reluctant to fight]] in the second, [[spoiler:even refusing to hold a gun for defense]]. In the finale, she arguably becomes LawfulGood. * {{Deconstruction}}: She's what [[GundamWing Relena Peacecraft]] would be if portrayed in a very cynical (towards pacifism) series, and [[HolyShitQuotient holy shit]], does she get put through the wringer. ** Also the IdolSinger princess character (think [[GundamSEED Lacus]] [[GundamSEEDDestiny Clyne]]). She's very inspiring with a song she writes about peace, and Setsuna says what everyone in the audience is thinking, that she's a lot more competent as a singer/good will ambassador than as the leader of a country- and he meant it as a compliment. * EarWorm: Her song tends to invoke this to Setsuna, which could be vital in his development. For the audience? [[YourMileageMayVary It depends...]] * EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: Probably why she's not Queen, President, or Prime Minister. ** Arguably more like [[SubvertedTrope Everything's Worse With Princesses]] in this case, as good things rarely happen when Marina's on screen. Either to other characters or [[TheWoobie Marina herself]]. ** Technically, she's mostly a figurehead, albeit one with some measure of diplomatic power, but most to all of her efforts keep getting subverted. * {{Expy}}: She's the Relena/Lacus to Setsuna's Heero/Kira. * FallenPrincess: In season 2. * FriendToAllChildren: In season 2. * HeWillNotCrySoICryForHim: Does this for Setsuna. * HimeCut * IdenticalStranger: See ReplacementGoldfish below. * [[spoiler:NeutralFemale]] * {{Odango}}: Her princess hairstyle in season 1. * RealWomenNeverWearDresses: While her idealism - and inability to do much of anything due to her being only a figurehead - never made her at all popular among fandom, the hate for her has been building up and up while season two continues airing ('only good for running children's daycare service'). People want her head on a platter for [[spoiler:essentially stopping Setsuna from killing Ali, since he was distracted by a song she was singing... and ''accidentally'' heard]]. Perhaps it won't matter if [[spoiler:the song ''is'' [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome awesome]], but we speak about a song that makes many audience want to mute their volume.]]. And she was supposed to be the heroine of the series, but it seems that being a pacifist and homely is a ''crime'' according to fandom. * RebelliousPrincess: Deconstructed. She ''tries'' to be one, but never can do anything productive. * ReplacementGoldfish: To a degree, Setsuna sees her as a mother figure - it doens't help that she ''does'' look like a younger version of his MissingMom. * RoyalBlood * TheStraightWillAndGrace: According to Setsuna and her, and they make sure to emphasize this. * [[spoiler: TakingTheBullet: In the last scene of episode 18 of season 2, she blocked a bullet meant for a kid named Josef. Averted in the next episode, as Klaus shoot the gunners down before they pull the trigger.]] * TallDarkAndBishoujo: Her lack of aloofness prevented her from being the SugarWiki/MostTriumphantExample in {{Gundam}}. * [[spoiler: TeamMom: For the Kataron children in season 2.]] * TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Even earlier in Season 1, Shirin came off as more tough compared to Marina, fitting this in an emotional capacity. It just played straighter, with the toughened-up Shirin, in season 2. * TrappedByMountainLions: [[strike: Probably]] in season 2. * WomanInWhite: In the second season. * TheWoobie: Not many good things happen to her. It gets worse in season two, where [[spoiler:Azadistan is burned down by Ali, and then basically ceases to exist as a country afterwards]]. Over the course of all the episodes that have aired so far, she's only smiled ''twice'' on-screen, with one of those smiles actually appearing inside of a dream. * YamatoNadeshiko ----- ::'''Shirin Bakhtiar''' Marina's best friend, advisor and lady in waiting, who does not doubt to scold Marina when she hesitates. [[spoiler: After the formation of the Earth Sphere Federation, she leaves the Palace and becomes a member of the rebel group Katharon to keep fighting for Azadistan in her own way.]] Tropes associated with Shirin: * [[spoiler: ActionSurvivor]] * AdrenalineMakeover: Contrast her flowing dresses from season 1 with her baggy pants and tight t-shirt in the second one. * CharacterAlignment: LawfulGood <--> NeutralGood * TheConsigliere * GrayEyes * [[spoiler:HotShounenMom]] * [[spoiler:KickedUpstairs]] * LesYay: Arguably, with Marina. * {{Meganekko}} * MichikoNeya * PluckyGirl * SarcasticDevotee * [[spoiler:ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight]]: The reason she [[spoiler:left Marina in the season 1 finale.]] * SexySecretary: In a degree during the first season. * SubordinateExcuse: Although she and Klaus started as TheStraightWillAndGrace, the [[AllThereInTheManual novelization]] stated that they had a RelationshipUpgrade. [[spoiler:And after the finale, she became pregnant with his child.]] * TallDarkAndBishoujo * TomboyAndGirlyGirl: She and Marina are a grown-up version. * [[spoiler:[[GirlsWithGuns Woman With A Gun]]]] ----- ::'''Louise Halevy''' OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent.

[[spoiler:Fortunately, she gets better in the end.]] * ChiwaSaitou: Louise's seiyuu. * CompletelyMissingThePoint / HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Very much in season 2.

She is also a bit of a [[CharsCounterattack Quess Paraya]] Expy. * GenkiGirl: Cruel [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] of the archetype. * [[spoiler: GirlWithPsychoWeapon: To be specific, girl with [[LightningBruiser an incredibly fast]] [[HumongousMecha Humongous]] TransformingMecha equipped with ''twelve'' {{Attack Drone}}s and capable of {{Roboteching}}.]] * HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:Goes into those more or less often, as a side-effect of her treatment.]] * [[spoiler: [[IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim If You Kill Her You Will Be Just Like Her]]: In order to kill Nena and avenge her murdered family as well as her mental/physical injuries, she joins and funds an organization responsible for the deaths of easily thousands of innocent people. By the time she confronted Nena herself Louise was already firmly entrenched as one of the bad guys. Until Saji [[LoveRedeems redeemed]] her of ThePowerOfLove and the DeusExMachina helps restore her to sanity in the finale, that is.]] * IllGirl: [[spoiler: The medical treatment ''and'' her training wear her out ''very'' much and cause her ''very'' ugly seizures. She seems to be better in the finale, but the recent movie publication and trailer states that she's still in the hospital..]] * ImportantHaircut: Had RapunzelHair in the first season, sports later a pageboy style that makes her look like a borderline {{Bifauxnen}} [[spoiler: when in uniform. In TheMovie, however, she has grown her hair back.]] * InnocentBystanders: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] cruelly. * JerkassWoobie: You want to slap her for what she does on the A-LAWS' behalf, and yet hug her for the [[BrokenBird crap she's gone through.]] * [[spoiler: KarmaHoudini: Louise sponsored and joined a [[StateSec government organization]] that committed war crimes. Yet, she gets away free, and with a happy ending to boot.]] * KellySheridan: Her English VA. * [[spoiler: [[LastOfHisKind Last Of Her Kind]]: She is the Halevy clan's only survivor after Nena's attack. And since she reconciled with Saji, who she is engaged with, the Halevy clan will be extinct surname wise when they do marry since she and their would be children will most likely use Saji's (Crossroad) last name.]] ** Unless [[spoiler: Saji and Louise reach an agreement about it per a Japanese custom that allows a man who's marrying an only daughter of a higher social standard to be "adopted" into her family and renouce his family name. Not very possible, though, since Saji himself is an orphan.]] *** The fact that this is also the year ''2311'' might also help; [[spoiler: a man taking a woman's family name probably isn't too unheard of]], considering it's common enough for people in most first-world countries ''now'' to think it little more than a curiosity. *** TakeAThirdOption [[spoiler: (The two can agree to take up ''both'' surnames, something which is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederic_Joliot-Curie not without]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irene_Joliot-Curie precedent]].)]] ** DidNotDoTheResearch: [[spoiler: In Spain women don't change their surnames upon marrying. About their children, Spanish naming customs dictate that everyone must have two surnames. Traditionally, the first one is the father's first surname, and the second is the mother's first surname, but this order is reversible since 1999.]] * LatinLover: Subverted that she doesn't act like one towards Saji) * MagicSkirt: Wears one in the first season, and "it took effect" in the second ED. * {{Moe}}: In season 1 until she BreakTheCutie . * [[spoiler: TheMole: Apparently, for Ribbons.]] * {{Misblamed}}: [[spoiler: She blames Celestial Being for her misfortune when really it was just Nena acting on her own whim that fateful day, going against everything Celestial Being stands for. Even after getting revenge on Nena, she desires Celestial Being's destruction.]] * [[spoiler: NotSoDifferent: With Nena, in a rare case of IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim proving entirely true.]] * TheOjou and SpoiledSweet: A [[BrattyTeenageDaughter more childish version]], though not mean enough to be a RichBitch. She ''did'' try to endear herself to Kinue and loved her mother genuinely, after all. * OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent / [[HighSchoolSweetHearts SweetHearts]]: In the beginning. * {{Revenge}} and WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:[[strike:Hinted to be]] her reason to join the A-Laws... which she even ''sponsors'', having inherited the Halevy's HUGE fortune alone as the clan's [[LastOfHisKind only survivor]].]] * [[spoiler: SanitySlippage: Throughout season 2, specially after she killed Nena. She gets better fortunately.]] * ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney And Money]]: [[spoiler:[[ManBehindTheMan Ribbons]] pulled the strings to put her in A-Laws so she can finance them.]] * SheCleansUpNicely: Fits in quite well in kimonos and EGL dresses. * [[spoiler: [[HeWhoFightsMonsters She Who Fights Monsters]] / YouAreTheDemons: Unfortunately by killing Nena, she became a murderer like her. She gets better in the finale.]] * [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Spell My Surname With A B]]: Louise Haleby. * StarCrossedLovers: With Saji, in season 2. [[spoiler: That would be before she burned their photographs and deleted their e-mails, and swore some more revenge.]] ** Considering episode 19, [[spoiler: where Louise held Saji at gunpoint yet couldn't bring herself to kill him, then was shown [=BSODing=] over the issue]], the trope seemingly is still valid for them. *** And in episode 24, [[spoiler: Saji and Louise are back together. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Awwww, thank God. ;-;]].]] * [[TagalongKid Tag Along Girl]]: For the A-Laws. * [[spoiler: TookALevelInBadass: Is a pilot for the A-Laws, heading more and more towards DarkActionGirl and TykeBomb territory. Killing Nena Trinity confirms all of this.]] * TookALevelInJerkAss: Although a [[JerkassWoobie very sympathetic one]]. * TrappedByMountainLions: Until... ''then''. * UnstoppableRage: If she ever gets in the view of Celestial Beings, she will yell on the top of her lungs '''"CELESTIAL BEIIIIIIINNNGGGG!!!!!"'''. However, subverted that although no one amongst her allies can stop her rage, one of her enemies CAN. * UsedToBeASweetKid: [[spoiler:She Got Better.]] * [[spoiler: WellDoneSonGuy: After she kills Nena, Louise's HeroicBSOD has her begging her dead family's spirits to tell her she's finally done her job.]] * [[spoiler: WomanScorned: [[GoMadFromTheRevelation When she realises that Saji is piloting the 0 Raiser alongside Setsuna's 00 Gundam]], [[CompletelyMissingThePoint Louise becomes convinced that]] [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter Saji has been in cahoots with Celestial Being the entire time.]] Needless to say, she's ''not at all happy'' about it. But as you see, she gets more or less better.]] ----- ::'''Saji Crossroad''' Introduced as an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent and neighbor of Setsuna, with no real impact on the plotline. He had a part time job as a pizza delivery boy (his neighbor was in a terrorist paramilitary organization); he dealt with his girlfriend's mother (Azadistan was on the verge of civil war). etc. If he was in trouble, he was being [[TrappedByMountainLions trapped by very boring mountain lions]] that made the fan base wish something bad would just happen already. Then, [[BreakTheCutie it did]]. [[ItGotWorse And some more]]. [[spoiler: His older sister was found dead in an alley. His girlfriend was crippled and hospitalized. And everything that could go wrong, did go wrong, and now the only people on earth that will take him in is the very terrorist organization he hates the most. Which are the rivals to the military group that took ''his girlfriend'' in.]]... We take it back, Saji. Sorry about that. Tropes associated with Saji: * [[spoiler: ActionSurvivor]] * [[spoiler: BashBrothers: With Setsuna in Season 2. Especially when he became the 0-Raiser's pilot.]] * [[spoiler: {{BFS}} [[SwordBeam Beam]]: The Trans-Am Raiser used by the 00-Raiser which he and Setsuna co-pilot.]] * BreakTheCutie and ButtMonkey: If something could go wrong for him, it certainly did. And then ItGotWorse. * [[spoiler:[[BridgeBunnies Bridge Bunny]]: In season 2, he fills this position if he's not [[MrFixIt helping Ian]] until he become a SixthRanger with Soma.]] * BrownEyes * ButNotTooForeign: Japanese-American. * CharacterAlignment: TrueNeutral --> NeutralGood: When he ''[[CharacterDevelopment finally]]'' realized he just can't be NeutralNoLonger. * CharacterDevelopment: Perhaps the best example in the show. See the following quote from Episode 18 of the second season. --> '''Saji''': "I can't pull the trigger. I can only [[spoiler: continue to call out to Louise...]] even so, I... I...!" * [[spoiler: gets on the cockpit of the 0 Raiser]] anyway, since ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself* [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Wow!]] * [[spoiler: CombiningMecha: Saji's 0-Raiser can combine/dock with Setsuna's 00 Gundam to form the 00-Raiser.]] * CompletelyMissingThePoint: He gets better. * CurtainsMatchTheWindow * [[spoiler: [[DeadLittleSister Dead Older Sister]]: Poor Kinue.]] * [[spoiler: EarnYourHappyEnding: And earn he did.]] * TheEngineer: Well, duh! * ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Cut his hair a bit shorter for season 2[[spoiler:, then in TheMovie trailers he has let it grow a bit.]] * {{Expy}}: Arguably, of both Shinji Ikari from NeonGenesisEvangelion ''and'' Shinn Asuka from GundamSEEDDestiny, as well as Hathaway Noah from CharsCounterattack. * [[FirstGirlWins First Guy Wins]] * GabeKhouth: His English voice. * HeroicResolve: Thanks to a CrowningMomentOfAwesome CharacterDevelopment. * HoYay: With Setsuna. [[spoiler:The two even appears nude while their mobile suit is on Trans-Am mode. Not to mention his 0 Raiser ''[[FreudWasRight docks]]'' behind Setsuna's 00 Gundam.]] * IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: Why he [[spoiler:didn't kill Setsuna when he had the chance.]] * InnocentBystanders: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] cruelly. * ItsAllMyFault and MyGodWhatHaveIDone (After [[spoiler:seeing the aftermath of the Kataron base incident]] early in season 2. * [[spoiler:MistakenForTerrorist: When we said [[ItGotWorse things got worse]] [[ButtMonkey for him]], we mean it. Oh, it happened to him ''twice''.]] * [[spoiler:MyHeroZero: Pilots the 0-Raiser, which can combine with the titular Gundam to form the 00 Raiser.]] * NiceGuy * NonActionGuy: [[spoiler:In the beginning. Deconstructed in the second season, but he's still pretty much like one. Graham even used him as hostage once.]] * OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent / [[HighSchoolSweetHearts SweetHearts]]: He and Louise start like this. * ParentalAbandonment: His and Kinue's parents were dead before the story started [[spoiler: It's hinted that his dad, an IntrepidReporter like Kinue, died because [[HeKnowsTooMuch he learnt something he shouldn't have known]].]] * [[spoiler: [[FallingIntoTheCockpit Put Into The Cockpit]]: He was asked to pilot the 0-Raiser in behalf of the injured Ian despite having no experience in mobile weapons. He become the official pilot of the Mobile armor afterwards.]] * RelationshipVoiceActor: Saji is voiced by {{Miyu Irino}}, while Setsuna is voiced by MamoruMiyano. The two seiyus previously worked together in KingdomHearts as main characters Sora and Riku. One could notice the [[ActorAllusion similarities of the said characters]] including their plot [[TwoGuysAndAGirl involving a girl]], PowerOfFriendship of sorts and fighting a mysterious organization which includes an [[EvilRedHeads Evil Read Head]] [[PigeonholedVoiceActor voiced by]] KeijiFujiwara.) * TheScrappy: The bashing seems to revolve about these two ideas: "Realistic characters with human ''negative'' reactions to war? In MY Gundam 00 series?" and "How DARES he harsh on my squee and my bishies! ASSHOLE!" ** TakeAThirdOption Ignorant NaiveNewcomer carrying a huge IdiotBall - until he actually admits that and [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap pulls himself out of the Scrappy Heap]]. ** His original status as TheScrappy was probably planned, to make his Level In Badass all the more impressive come Season 2. ** WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: Although there are some fans who still bash him due to this.. * [[spoiler:ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Deconstructed in the second season. His first attempt [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone doesn't]] [[ItsAllMyFault end well]]. The second will most likely be the same if he didn't realize the consequence of his previous attempt.]] * SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Him and Setsuna respectively, specially in Season two. * [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Spell My Surname With An S]]: He is known as Saji Crossroads to some fans. * StarCrossedLovers: With Louise, in season 2. * StraightMan: To his girlfriend Louise. This role will be very important in the second season. * SupportingProtagonist / TheIshmael: In season 2 according to [[WordOfGod Mizushima himself]]. * [[spoiler:[[TagalongKid Tag Along Guy]]: Fills this role in the first ten episodes of Season two until he became a..]] ** [[spoiler: SixthRanger: From being just a [[TagAlongKid Tag Along Guy]], he promoted himself to this trope when he decided to pilot the 0-Raiser. Plus, he and Soma/Marie's addition have made Celestial Being's offensive team from four to six, So Yeah.]] * TragicKeepsake: [[spoiler: His engagement ring, which he keps in a necklace. In episode 24 of Season 2, seeing it snaps Louise out of her UnstoppableRage as she's choking him, letting Saji [[IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight get through her at last.]].]] * TrappedByMountainLions: A trip to Spain changes everything... * WhyDoYouKeepChangingJobs: In the entire series, we saw him as a student, as a Pizza delivery guy, as a space [[TheEngineer engineer]], as a [[spoiler:forced laborer for the government ready to be executed]], as [[spoiler:Ian's assistant, both as a WrenchWench and ship gunner]], and [[spoiler:finally as a mobile armor pilot.]] * TheWoobie: Not a ''single'' good thing happened to him since the middle of the season one. Even when he happens to [[TookALevelInBadass pull himself from his usual apathy]], it doesn't ends well -- at best, it ends with nothing. ** [[spoiler:But episode 24 of second season [[EarnYourHappyEnding gave him the happiest of all endings, until now]]. Louise is recovered, no longer messed up. All those hardships DO pay off. Congratulations, Saji!]] ----- ::'''Kinue Crossroad''' The older sister to Saji and JNN reporter. She was obsessed with Celestial Being's founder, Aeolia Schenberg. She believes that by investigating into Aeolia, she can uncover the true motives of Celestial Being. Through her investigation, she interviewed Schenberg's great grandson and other people possibly linking to either the Gundams or Schenberg. Later, she suspected Laguna Harvey, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive president of Linear Train Industries]], to be somehow connected to this and wanted to interview him. She couldn't get permission to interview him, but saw Ali Al-Saachez leaving from his estate and hoped to get any sort of information from him.[[spoiler:.. Which was a ''bad idea''. Ali ''does'' give her the information she wants - only to kill her afterwards.]] Tropes associated with Kinue: A-Laws}} A-Laws]] * AlliterativeName * AnnaCummer: Her English voice. * AyaEndo: Her seiyuu. * BewareTheHonestOnes: [[spoiler:Because some VillainsNeverLie, especially if he's [[CompleteMonster Ali]] [[ForTheEvulz Al-Saachez]].]] * BrownEyes * ButNotTooForeign * CharacterAlignment: TrueNeutral * CoolBigSis * CurtainsMatchTheWindow * [[spoiler:DyingAlone: [[TearJerker And How!]]]] * [[spoiler:FatalFamilyPhoto]] * GoingForTheBigScoop * HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: [[spoiler:Eventually became her FatalFlaw.]] * HotScoop * InternetBackdraft: [[spoiler: Whether Ali raped her or not before he killed her is debated in many forums.]] * IntrepidReporter * [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal]] * [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Father Like Daughter]]: Her father's also a [[IntrepidReporter reporter]]. [[spoiler: [[GenerationXerox And both of them are killed]] [[HeKnowsTooMuch for knowing too much]].]] * ParentalAbandonment ** PromotionToParent: To Saji. * [[spoiler: [[HeKnowsTooMuch She Knows Too Much]]]] * [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Spell My Surname With An S]] * [[spoiler: StuffedInTheFridge]] * TallDarkAndBishoujo ----- ::'''Ali Al-Saachez''' [[LampshadeHanging By his own admission]], [[CompleteMonster the worst kind of human to ever exist]]. Ali starts out as a freedom fighter who recruits kids to fight in the name of 'God', this turns out to be false, as he didn't believe in God and was just a terrorist, period. One of those kids was Setsuna, and he also assaulted Ireland at one point, killing Lockon's parents and little sister. Later he became a mercenary and was reunited with Setsuna in battle. He continues to do ''really'' nefarious things afterwards, notably bribing and then killing IntrepidReporter Kinue Crossroad ForTheEvulz. Next, he meets up with Team Trinity, and kills Johann and Michael... for the lulz, incidentally [[HoistByHisOwnPetard hitting the karmic hammer to their sister Nena]] (who had [[spoiler:killed Louise's family]]). He stole Michael's Throne Zwei and was about to kill Nena, until he was interrupted by Setsuna, and the activation of Trans-Arm forced him to retreat. He is later seen in space and engaged in a fatal battle with Lockon; Ali got the Throne Zwei damaged heavily[[spoiler:, but he managed to kill Lockon.]] When TheFederation was formed, Ali was frustrated since [[BloodKnight it takes away his joy: war]]. But it didn't really happen as apparently Ribbons hired him. And the next thing he did in his debut on the second season is... burning down the whole Azadistan, probably [[ForTheEvulz for the lulz]]... [[spoiler: But he finally bought the farm, at Lyle's hands no less.]] Tropes associated with Ali: * ArchEnemy * {{Attack Drone}}s: Both the Throne Zwei and the Arche were equipped with these. * AxCrazy * {{Badass}} * [[BadassBeard Badass]] BeardOfEvil: Shaves it in the second half of the first season. Sports it again during the entire second season. * BadassNormal: Able to defeat Gundams in less tech-advanced suits. * BadSamaritan * BoisterousBruiser: Oh, so much. To NightmareFuel degrees. * BloodKnight: He lives only for war, it's his only source of joy. He even admits it openly. * [[spoiler: BoomHeadshot: What Lyle/Lockon II did to finally put him out.]] * CharacterAlignment: ChaoticEvil: Any wonders? * ColonelKilgore * CompleteMonster: Oh so very much. * CorruptionOfAMinor: And How! * CrazyAwesome * DracoInLeatherPants: People seem to either forget or handwave how horrendous and cruel he is, but others fully acknowledge his [[CompleteMonster monstrous]] status, and like him anyway, mostly because EvilIsCool, but perhaps also because EvilIsSexy.. * EvilGloating * EvilIsCool * EvilIsNotPacifist * EvilIsSexy: He's a horrible person, but ''[[FetishFuelStationAttendant holy crap he's hot]]''. * EvillyAffable * EvilMentor: To Setsuna and the other Kurdish ChildSoldiers. * EvilRedHeads: Maybe one of the worse ''ever'' in the Gundam series. * {{Expy}}: The [[FullMetalPanic Gauron]] to Setsuna's [[FullMetalPanic Sousuke]]. ** Minus the pedophilia, thankfully. [[FoeYay We hope, anyway.]] ** He pilots mostly [[LawOfChromaticSuperiority Red mobile suits]], [[CharClone He is a Char]](?) * FanNickname: Look down... * ForTheEvulz: Yes, most of the atrocities he did are [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment for the lulz]]. The money is nice too, but he mainly does it for fun. * GreenEyes * {{Gundamjack}} * HeroKiller * HeyItsThatVoice: KeijiFujiwara is his Japanese voice, ScottMcNeil is his english voice.. [[BeastWars We now wonder if Prince Ali was a Velociraptor in his past life]].. * HolyShitQuotient * IHaveManyNames * ISurrenderSuckers: [[spoiler:It fails.]] * [[spoiler: KarmicDeath: There's nothing more karmic than ''three'' shots in the face from the [[BackupTwin twin young brother]] of the AcePilot you killed years ago. And considering that he also engineered the attack that killed the parents and little sister of ''both'' Lockons... Oh, wow.]] ** [[spoiler: HoistByHisOwnPetard: And about frigging time too.]] * LackOfEmpathy * LargeHam * LastSecondChance: [[spoiler: Lyle/Lockon offered him one. [[KarmicDeath He refused]]. BANG he went.]] * LawOfChromaticSuperiority: Look at his mobile suits except the first, his A-shirt, his pilot suit and even his [[EvilRedHeads hair]]. * LovableRogue: He introduced himself as one of these. But that was just a cover for his EVIL. * LoveToHate * MemeticMutation: ''[[FanNickname Prince Ali]], [[{{Aladdin}} Mighty is He!]]''. ** [[spoiler:With how he died, however, the mutation is now degraded into ''"Prince Ali, Mighty '''was''' he!"'']] * MemeticMolester: ''Never ever'' take a car ride with him, ladies!) ** Actually, on second thought, [[MemeticSexGod go ahead and take that ride.]] * MoralEventHorizon: He starts crossing it pretty much from the moment he walks onscreen the first time. * PlayingAgainstType: n a basis that both of his [=VAs=] previously voiced Gundam protagonists. His [[KeijiFujiwara Japanese seiyu]] does [[The08thMSTeam Eledore]], while his [[ScottMcNeil English voice actor]] dubbed [[GundamWing Duo]]. Ali's character seems to be [[CompositeCharacter a mixture of both]], only [[EvilKnockoff evil]]. * PlotArmor: He is known to negate this when fighting the protagonists, but he was protected by it [[spoiler:when Setsuna failed to kill him due to Marina's song interruption.]] Then you know where the hatred for this PlotArmor go: [[spoiler:Poor Marina]]. ** [[spoiler: As of episode 24, turns out [[KilledOffForReal he already sold it]].]] * PsychoForHire * ScarfOfAssKicking: Inverted, but he is shown in flashbacks training ChildSoldiers while wearing it. * SharpDressedMan: He was DressedToKill twice. First when he took out [[spoiler: Laguna Harvey]], and later [[spoiler:Kinue Crossroad]]. * [[spoiler:SixthRanger: For [[BigBad Ribbons]] and company in season 2. He also doubles as TheDragon.]] * TheSociopath * TallDarkAndSnarky: Yes he's tall, but the ''[[CompleteMonster dark]]'' and ''[[MagnificentBastard snarky]]'' parts stand out most. * TattooedCrook * [[spoiler:TooCoolToLive]] * TrappedByMountainLions: He rarely appears in the Season 2 and even then mainly to duel Gundam Meisters a bit in episodes that have very little impact on the overall plot. You would think that it makes sense to actually send an ace of his caliber into important battles, particularly after the trouble of building a custom mobile suit for him... ** Despite that however, he is still VERY dangerous. Well, because [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment he traps character/s like a fierce lion]]. * UnpopularPopularCharacter: The single most hated character in-show; you see, Setsuna hates him for [[spoiler: influencing him in killing his parents, and later on for Neil/Lockon I's death. Neil/Lockon I hates him because he's the leader of the terrorists that took away his family's lives save for his [[BackUpTwin twin brother Lyle/Lockon II]]. Neil almost got his revenge, but he died while doing so]]. Then there's Tieria, who really, really hates him [[spoiler:for killing [[strike:the love of his life]] his best friend and comrade Neil]]. And Don't forget Nena, [[spoiler: who wants him dead for killing her brothers.]] He is also responsible for [[spoiler:the death of Saji's [[HotScoop sister Kinue]]. If he finds out about this, he'll probably join the "I Hate Ali" and "Die Ali, Die" campaigns... if only Lyle/Lockon II didn't kill him first]]. [[DracoInLeatherPants Fans]] [[EvilIsSexy LOVE]] [[EvilIsCool him]]. * WarForFunAndProfit: Mostly for fun. He doesn't care about money much, but if there's a smell of blood somewhere... ---- ::'''Klaus Grado''' [[RebelLeader He is the commander and the de facto leader]] of the Katharon [[LaResistance Rebel Group]], which opposes the [[TheFederation Earth Sphere Federation]] and its [[StateSec elite squad A-Laws]].
