Not sure why the counterpart name of this trope has the subject changed but it does.

Added DiffLines:
* DarkIsEvil: As an iconic 'evil Gundam', his Providence uses a much darker version of the traditional red, white, and blue colour scheme. It makes a striking contrast with his earlier white and pale grey suits, too - the fact that he starts piloting it shortly after being revealed as a nihilistic OmnicidalManiac is almost certainly not a coincidence.

Added DiffLines:
* EvilIsBigger: While it's the standard height for a military mobile suit, his Providence is the bulkiest Gundam in the show, with a gigantic beam rifle and backpack to emphasise its imposing build. Kira's Freedom looks positively delicate next to it.

->'''Main mecha:''' Skygrasper

One of the few mobile armour pilots to survive the war long enough to appear in the series, he's ''also'' lucky (and good) enough to survive the initial ZAFT attack on Heliopolis. Surprisingly laid back for a guy who's been on the brink of a messy death for months at a time, he provides much needed advice and experience for the ''Archangel'''s rookie crew. Provides support for Kira and Murrue most specifically -- he outranks them both, but having no experience as a ship's officer and being unable to pilot the Strike, he prefers to leave the lead roles to them. Has a rivalry with ZAFT commander Rau Le Creuset, which precedes the beginning of the series. Pilots first the Mobius Zero mobile armour, then the Skygrasper, and finally the Strike.

Athrun's commanding officer and Patrick Zala's right-hand man, Le Creuset is a feared ZAFT ship captain and mobile suit pilot, renowned for his ability and his ruthlessness. He is assigned to hunt down the ''Archangel'', and is later given command of the assaults on Alaska and Panama, and the defence of Jachin Due. Aways masked, Le Creuset is an enigmatic figure with a grudge against Mu La Flaga, and his own agenda, which he keeps entirely to himself. A very dangerous man, Rau originally pilots a series of EliteMook mobile suits, but eventually upgrades to the [[BiggerStick Providence]].

Kira's former BestFriend and one of ZAFT's elite pilots, he spends the first half of the show trying to capture Kira and the Strike. Much more cynical than Kira, he considers himself the realist of the two, and believes Kira is being manipulated by the Naturals. He too grow progressively darker and more bitter as the series progresses, culminating in a [[TheGlovesComeOff brutal fight]] between he and Kira in the middle of the series. Pilots the Aegis and then the Justice.

Pilots the Aegis and then the Justice.

A member of the Le Creuset team, he's the most bloodthirsty and callous of the group. He has little respect for anyone he considers weak, and absolutely ''zero'' respect for Naturals as a consequence. He's close friends with Dearka, who shares many of his views, and has a developing rivalry with Athrun. He has no particular hate for the Earth Alliance (just contempt) until he's wounded during a battle with the Strike. After the resulting [[PhysicalScarsPsychologicalScars scarring]], he develops a massive [[ItsPersonal hate-on]] for Kira. Extremely temperamental and impulsive, he's the member of the group most loyal to ZAFT as a whole and Le Creuset personally. Pilots the Duel.

A member of Athrun's team, he, along with Yzak Joule, formed the darker half of the foursome. Snarky and condescending at times, Dearka often has to act as the more impulsive Yzak's conscience. An artilleryman at heart, he prefers to engage his opponents at range, while mocking their inability to touch him. Pilots the Buster.

Known as "the Desert Tiger", Waltfeld is a feared ZAFT commander operating in the Libyan desert. He serves as the first major opponent Kira faces other than Athrun and his team, and poses a serious threat to the ''Archangel'' and her crew, despite being a pretty decent guy. Meeting him forces Kira to further reevaluate his moral stance on the war. He pilots a [=BuCUE=] and then the [=LaGOWE=] command unit.

The adopted daughter of Uzumi Nara Atha, Chief Representative of the Orb Union. Also a rebel leader, guerilla soldier, and a capable, if brash, politician. Hates ZAFT and distrusts the Earth Forces. She provides the military backbone of the Three Ships' Alliance. Pilots a Skygrasper and then the Strike Rouge.

* BadassNormal: Probably the best ship commander we meet in either show, capable of outmanouvering both fellow Naturals and the genetically superior Coordinators.

Le Creuset's friendliness is not genuine.
* AffablyEvil: Early in the series, he comes off as a genuinely friendly and understanding commander, barring occasional episodes of [[KickTheDog dog-kicking]]. It's only later that his true nature becomes clear.

* FauxAffablyEvil: As part of the standard CharClone package.

* {{Foil}}: To both Lacus and Cagali, with her general bitchiness, immaturity, and self-centredness contrasting with both Lacus' forgiving nature and Cagali's insistence on joining the fighting. She's the FallenPrincess to Lacus' AllLovingHero and Cagali's RebelliousPrincess.

* {{Badass}}: It's easy to forget just how good Yzak is. He goes toe-to-toe with Kira regularly, kills [[spoiler:two {{Super Soldier}}s]] in the finale, saves [[spoiler:Cagali's life]] and even takes down Captain Sutherland, all while using a first generation Gundam.

* ActionGirl: While not her first appearance, the first time she does anything meaningful within the series revolves around taking a man-portable weapon in a jeep against a ''lupine humongous mecha''. Things only ramps up when she actually gets a warmachine of her own.

* BadassPrincess: This is a princess who often took to the field in a HumongousMecha. However, near the end of Seed she reasonably gives this up, fully taking on her political duties. It helps that almost everyone she knows is a badass pilot.
