->"By directing combat and war pieces, I could experience catharsis and successfully avoid committing a murder in real life. In this sense, I'm really grateful for that because I was conscious that I had such homicidal traits, to be honest."
-->-- '''Yoshiyuki Tomino''', about his "KillEmAll" reputation.

The TropeNamer for KillEmAll, Yoshiyuki Tomino began his career in anime as a part of {{Osamu Tezuka}}'s Mushi Productions, working on the storyboards and screenplay on ''Tetsuwan Atom'' (''Anime/AstroBoy'') in 1963. From the 1970s onwards, he was one of the primary members of the Sunrise animation studio, and went on to direct the [[SuperRobotGenre Super Robot]] series BraveRaideen in 1975, and Zambot 3 in 1977. Two years later, he went on to direct Anime/MobileSuitGundam, the veritable progenitor of the RealRobotGenre of HumongousMecha. In the 1980s and 1990s, he went on to direct numerous other mecha series, along with the edited re-release of the first Gundam series, two direct sequels, two movies, and an [[AlternateContinuity Alternate Universe]] TV series for the 20th anniversary of the Gundam franchise.

Tomino is known as one of the first mecha anime directors to break out of the mold of the basic good versus evil characterizations that are especially prevalent in mecha series, and with Gundam and its sequel, established that the protagonists and antagonists are really NotSoDifferent after all. Which is a one of the reasons why he earned the FanNickname of the Bald Wizard. The other one is, obviously, that [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin he is bald]].

However, Tomino is also known as "KillEmAll Tomino" for a number of series where much of the main cast gets killed during the GrandFinale. Among these series were {{Zambot 3}}, SpaceRunawayIdeon (where ''his two expies'' get killed off), [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]], [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]], CharsCounterattack, and AuraBattlerDunbine. Ideon probably holds one of the highest body counts in anime, and in fact can be considered as a spiritual prequel to Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion in both the themes the series deal with, and also in the structure of its presentation (one TV series, and two movies). Further adding to his KillEmAll reputation are instances wherein characters were introduced merely to kill them off piecemeal within a few episodes, probably to provide instances of angst for the main character. The instances where this [[TrueArtIsAngsty works]], and when it [[{{Wangst}} doesn't]] is best left to the judgment of individual viewers.

It is alleged that the worst of his KillEmAll tendencies were due to [[CreatorBreakdown bouts with depression]]. While a number of his series even in the 1980s ''did'' have happy endings, it wasn't until the mid-1990s, after ''V Gundam'', that he finally worked through his problems, and consistently avoided killing off entire casts ever since. The recently released compilation movies of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'' (that he directed) even have had their plots altered to somewhat reduce the level of bloodshed.

Despite this reputation, Tomino has a habit of following a tragic series with [[LighterAndSofter a comedic one]], following ''{{Zambot 3}}'' with ''{{Daitarn 3}}'', ''[[SpaceRunawayIdeon Ideon]]'' with ''{{Xabungle}}'', and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]'' with ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ ZZ Gundam]]'' to name a few. He's also been shown to have PapaBear traits, as seen when he delivered an epic ReasonYouSuckSpeech to a group of people who disparaged RomiPaku for being Korean.

LoveHurts is also prevalent in Tomino's Gundam series. In at least two instances, the hero has [[KilledOffForReal killed]] or seen his LoveInterest killed in battle, and the love interests of supporting characters have been killed in various senseless manners, or if they're lucky, as part of a HeroicSacrifice. This leads to the thought that being a Gundam pilot ''isn't'' the most dangerous occupation in a Tomino series; rather, it's [[CartwrightCurse being a Gundam pilot's girlfriend]]. On the flip side, Characters in a comedy series seem to attract Harems, and get the implied Harem Ending. Notable examples are [[{{Xabungle}} Jiron Amos]] who while implied to have picked Elche is left open for the possibility of having Rag too, [[OvermanKingGainer Gainer Sanga]] who despite confessing his love to Sara holds a VERY close friendship with Cynthia Lane (Which Sara didn't seem to mind in the end), and [[{{Daitarn 3}} Banjou Haran]], who has ARTWORK of being flanked on both sides by beautiful women in their sexy underwear (Jetpacks, too, if we count the parting shot of ''Daitarn 3'''s first episode. Even [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Judau Ashta]] exhibits such charisma, attracting no less than six girls across his series (Elle, Roux, Chara, Haman, and the Purus) - the only way his ending could've been happier is if enough of them survived for him to take the TenchiSolution.

UrbanLegends love to claim that Tomino despises all the ''Gundam'' shows he didn't make. Some say that he physically attacks anyone who dares mention ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Gundam Wing]]'' in his presence while others claim that when ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam SEED]]''[='s=] director asked for advice, Tomino responded by handing him a book about ''Turn A'' and slamming the door in his face. This mostly seems to be an attempt by old-school fans to frighten off perceived {{Noob}}s by telling them "The guy who made ''Gundam'' hates your stupid kiddy rip-off!", as these legends sprang into being mostly around the time ''Wing'' was first airing in America. In actual verified interviews, Tomino has said that he was unhappy with the AlternateUniverse shows at first, but mellowed out when he decided that he should be supporting his fellow directors. Of course, this is reflected in ''Anime/TurnAGundam'', which acknowledges the Alternate Universes as part of its grand history.

As an aside, Tomino occasionally writes lyrics for some of the songs that appear in his shows; when he does, he uses the pseudonym "Rin Iogi".

Anime directed by YoshiyukiTomino (in rough chronological order) include:

* ''[[{{Raideen}} Yuusha Raideen]]''
* ''{{Zambot 3}}''
* ''{{Daitarn 3}}''
* {{Gundam}}
** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam''
** ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam''

** ''[[Anime/GarzeysWing Garzey's Wing]]''
** ''TheWingsOfRean''
* ''[[HeavyMetalLGaim Heavy Metal L-Gaim]]''
* ''BrainPowerd''
* ''OvermanKingGainer''

Finally, Tomino appears as the main character in ''GundamSousei'', a heavily fictionalised account of the production of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam''.
