* CompleteMonster: {{The sociopath}}ic Muruta Azrael, the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Nazi-like]] leader of the terrorist organization Blue Cosmos, wants to kill all Coordinators[[note]]people created via genetic engineering[[/note]] by any means necessary and takes unholy delight in their wholesale slaughter, making [[BigBad Rau Le Creuset]] seem sympathetic. Azrael believes entirely that [[BadBoss his subordinates are expendable and willingly sacrifices millions of them]] just to see all the Coordinators burn. A SoreLoser and a raging {{hypocrite}} who uses drugs and brainwashing to turn children into {{Tykebomb}} followers, referred to as the Extended, while claiming that genetic engineering is a sin, Azrael is also TheManBehindTheMan to both the [[{{Eagleland}} Atlantic Federation]] and the Earth Alliance Forces, whom he manages to corrupt with his FantasticRacism, and goes out of his way to make sure that neutral nations are coopted or destroyed. Having started the war by [[NukeEm launching a nuclear assault on the Coordinator homeland]], Azrael hopes to end it the same way, and is willing to blow up his own men to do it. His sole motivation is that [[DisproportionateRetribution he was bullied by Coordinators when he was a kid]]. ''GundamSEEDDestiny'''s side-story, ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDCE73Stargazer'', adds some further atrocities to Azrael's name, showing that he regularly [[WouldHurtAChild took children from their parents]], put them through TrainingFromHell and [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed them]] with anti-Coordinator propaganda in an effort at creating pilots who could match Coordinators in combat, without the drug problems of the Extended. Other villains might kill more people, but when it comes to the spreading of sheer human misery, no other villain in the ''CE'' verse can hold a candle to Azrael.

Added DiffLines:

** Yzak Joule as well. Not only because of his [[Creator/TomokazuSeki voice]], [[spoiler:but also because he personally destroyed ''two'' Gundams, and the pilots he killed are SuperSoldiers, no less!]]

* EvilIsCool: As the show's resident CharClone and MalevolentMaskedMan, everyone knew Le Creuset was going to be cool. Then the reveal comes in, and he turns out to be not only an AcePilot and a total {{Badass}}, but an impossible combination of Char, [[Franchise/StarWars Emperor Palpatine]] and [[Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]]. Muruta Azrael also gets this treatment, both from fangirls who [[DracoInLeatherPants give him leather pants]], and others who find that his enthusiasm, [[LaughablyEvil dark sense of humour]], and status as a CompleteMonster with {{A|ttentionDeficitOohShiny}}DHD make him a lot of fun to watch.

** Lacus, given her status as an idol singer, which some fans feel doesn't fit really well with the series' tone. Her turning out to have a large political clout while being a ''teenage'' idol singer also pushes SuspensionOfDisbelief a little thin even though such role is preferred over an idol. Her worst critics argue that she comes off as a hopelessly naive person who lucks her way into victory and power. However, there are plenty of people who feel that her portrayal as a Peacecroft-esque alternative political figure works fine, and even some who don't mind the IdolSinger angle.

* AmericansHateTingle: Flay is a BaseBreaker in the west. Not so much in Japan, where she's generally well-liked. Which is ironic since the director had actually thought she'd be the type of character to appeal to Western audiences, but things ended up reversed.

* TheScrappy: Flay Allster, [[BaseBreaker for those who don't see her as a]] JerkassWoobie. Her manipulation of Kira combined with her blaming him for her father's death, her racism, her bitchy personality, her treatment of Sai, and her general uselessness make her a pretty difficult person to like.

* DeaderThanDisco: Seed's success spawned a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny sequel]] and a [[Manga/MobileSuitGundamSEEDAstray manga spinoff series]], and even started talks that the CE timeline could become the new UC. However, a planned movie to wrap up the saga is in DevelopmentHell, making creators and fans give up on the saga and move on to ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00''. Nowadays, the Gundam fanbase have a rather divided opinions toward ''SEED''.

** [[AntiVillain Nicol]] and [[SociopathicSoldier Yzak]] arguably count as well (making all of Zala team besides Athrun an example of this trope), with the former liked for his NiceGuy tendencies and the latter for his [[HairTriggerTemper entertainingly vitriolic personality]] and banter with Dearka. That said, both characters have their detractors, particularly Yzak for his [[JerkAss Jerkassery]] and [[spoiler: destroying a civilian shuttle early in the show]].
