** Realistically, it's because the creators expected fans to want to see Zakus being blown up again. InUniverse... it really doesn't make a lot of sense, especially since canonically the Titans' first personal machine is the GM Quel. Going from that to an update of the most iconic Zeon suit makes no sense in-universe.

* I keep on scratching my head at the infamous "Quattro, he is a Char!" line - while I get that it's not a translating mistake (since it would make a bit more sense for Kai and Amuro to speak/write in English in universe), why did Kai refer to him as "a Char" - it's not like Char Aznable was a title passed down or a family name; why didn't he just write "Quattro, he is Char!"?

** It *is* a translating mistake, a classic case of GratuitousEnglish. The animator either had no idea what he was writing or [[JapaneseRanguage misunderstood the director]] when he tried to pronounce "he is Char."

** ** Found it: The beginning of episode 39. Jamitov and Bask Om are having a conversation about strategy when Bask says what basically amounts to: "You don't think there's a chance the EFF will reverse their decision to revoke your mandate (ie, the original order forming the Titans) anytime soon, do you?"

** Because she already made the point that [[ModestRoyalty she really, REALLY hated the circles of power and higher-ups.]] '''Multiple times''', in MSG. It's highly likely that [[GenreSavvy she]] actually married Bright (aside of her reciprocating his feelings for her) ''because'' it would give her an excuse to stay under the radar [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere as a military wife who has rejected that corrupted world.]] Besides, the high-ranked people have other priorities than attempting to twist the arm of a girl who already hates them, and (more importantly) whose influence likely disappeared after her dad died AND she broke off her engagement to Cameron.

* Okay why can't I find any reference to Paptimus being a female supremacist of sorts online? Or does he only say he wants a woman to rule the Earth Sphere in the ''DynastyWarriors: Gundam'' games?

** Can't remember: did he even park in the same place as the others? If he did and he saw the Hyaku Shiki, he might have prioritized saving/backing up Quattro before taking out the other MSs. That's a good question, though.

**** Even so, doesn't make much sense that the Titans, the faction formed to stamp out Zeon remnants or uprisings are now using suits either based off of their design like the Marasai and Barzam or are outright successors to them like Hizack and Galbaldy Beta. Isn't that kind of hurting their already bad public image?

*** The Titans don't give a crap about their public image: they are the power in space, and it's their way or the highway. Besides, the Zeon-derived designs tend to look intimidating and that's often what the Titans are going for. It could also be a backhanded way of insulting Zeon sympathizers by using their own weapons against them.

** I saw it as Tomino's (failed) attempt to have comic relief and kid appeal characters. It was the same in the original show (where Fraw Bow had a similar babysitter role).
