!!Flit Asuno
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Flit_Asuno_6165.jpg]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/ToshiyukiToyonaga (JP)

The first protagonist of Gundam AGE, he was born the same year that the war with the Unknown Enemies began. While he was still young, Flit and his family were attacked by the UE 7 years after "The Day Angel Fell", the first UE attack. It was during this attack that his dying mother provided him with control unit and schematics for the Gundam, leading Flit to spend years developing the "Legendary Mobile Suit" and devotes himself toward the defense of humanity and the defeat of the [=UE=]s. He is 14 years old at the start of his story.
----
* AcePilot: Although it takes him a few episodes to get used to battle, he quickly becomes the ''Diva's'' primary offensive suit along with Woolf.
* AnimeHair: His is one of the milder examples in the show, [[spoiler:including how his elderly self wears it]].
* AwesomeByAnalysis: Flit makes up his lack of experience with ability to analyze enemy's movement patterns.
* '''{{Badass}}''': ''Oh, yeah.''
** BadassAdorable: He was just a teen when he started piloting.
** BadassBookworm: The original creator of the Gundams.
** HeartbrokenBadass: After [[spoiler:Yurin's death.]]
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Emily.
* ChildProdigy: A teenager who's designing the SuperPrototype for the whole Federation.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* {{Determinator}}
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Yurin's death shatters his idealistic self, which ultimately triggers his descent into becoming the DarkMessiah for the corrupt Earth Federal Forces.]]
* DynamicEntry: In the AGE Titus' first appearance.
* EvolvingWeapon: The whole point of the AGE system--it allows the Gundam to produce new weapons as it requires them.
* {{Expy}}[=/=][[spoiler:CompositeCharacter]]: Initially, he was this to [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Amuro Ray]]. [[spoiler:Once Yurin dies, however, his UnstoppableRage and his refusal to accept those who fight for Vagan as fellow humans transforms him into a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny Shinn Asuka.]]]]
* FallingIntoTheCockpit: Subverted, while he has no intention to pilot Gundam AGE-1,he built it and knows how to use it.
* GadgeteerGenius
* GreenEyes: With green hair!
* TheHero: Starts off as a naive but driven kid, helps to broker a truce between two warring factions in Fardain, and he very much wants to save the Federation. His character arc also extends through the entire show.
* [[spoiler:HeroicBSOD: Seeing Yurin die caused Flit to have this.]]
* ImprobableAge: He's a weapons designer on the military's payroll long before he fell into the AGE-1. Arguably justified, as his mother pretty much instructed him to become a MessianicArchetype and save the world, giving him the design for the AGE in the process.
* InTheHood
* JumpedAtTheCall: Given that he feels he owes the UE for his mother's death, this is understandable.
* KidHero
* [[spoiler:LoveHurts: He ends up facing Yurin on the battlefield and she does a HeroicSacrifice for him.]]
* [[spoiler:LoveMakesYouEvil: Losing Yurin was Flit's StartOfDarkness, turning him into a pressure cooker of anti-Vagan hatred.]]
* MyGreatestFailure: [[spoiler: Not being able to stop Desil from killing Yurin.]]
* MyParentsAreDead: Their death (especially his mom's, which he witnessed) in a [=UE=] attack drove Flit into the family tradition of building Gundams specifically to get revenge.
* [[spoiler:NarratorAllAlong]]
* ParentalAbandonment: His mom died in front of him, while handing him the design for the Gundam. Of his father, we have no sign.
** MissingMom: Her death has had a major impact on him.
* PsychicPowers: He has developed predictive/telepathic senses as a result of him being an X-Rounder, which is basically this AU series representation of Newtypes.
* {{Revenge}}: Wants to pay the UE back for killing his mom.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: His name has so far been translated as Fritto (supposedly the 'official' spelling), Flit (also seemingly official), and Flint. Flit seems to have gained the most recognition, however.
* SuperPrototype: The AGE-1.
* TeenGenius: Designed the Gundam and a Haro at 14.
* TragicKeepsake: The Gundam's hard drive, given to him by his mother. [[spoiler:Yurin's pink ribbon from Episode 15 onwards.]]
* [[spoiler:UnstoppableRage: Goes into one of these after Yurin's death and utterly OWNS Desil.]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Green, actually. Well, blue-green.

!!Emily Amonde
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/154431_9078.jpg]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/AyaEndo (JP)

Childhood friend of Flit Asuno who met him when he first moved to Nora. She worries about Flit and initially spends most of her time trying to convince him to join her and Dique in resettling at Colony Tordia, rather than piloting the Gundam into battle.
----
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: She has an obvious crush on Flit, spending most of G1 worrying about his welfare.
* ClingyJealousGirl: She doesn't show this in terms of keeping Flit away from other girls (and there aren't any on the ''Diva'' anyway), but from the Gundam. In Episode 4 she accepts Woolf's challenge in the hopes that Flit will ''lose'' (and thus lose his place on the ship so that he'll accompany her and Dique to a new colony), and she gets angry at Woolf and Grodek for encouraging him to fight. Understandable, since nobody wants to see their crush die in battle. She eases up after a chat with Lalaparly Mardona later on.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes
* {{Expy}}: She looks similar to [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Sayla]] and has a similar role to Fraw Bow.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold
* PatientChildhoodLoveInterest
* PluckyGirl
* SnoopingLittleKid: She shadows the ''Diva's'' intended captain and overhears his intentions to abandon the colony. She later overhears Grodek [[GuileHero blackmailing another Federation officer]] and confronts him about it at one point, but the incidents motivate her to speak up on his behalf when Adams questions his right to command.

!!Dique Gunhale
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/140757_6042.jpg
-->Voiced by: KoukiMiyata (JP)

Another friend of Flit's who ends up on the ''Diva'' with Emily when she decides to sneak aboard with Flit.
----

* BigFun: One of the more comical characters, even in the generally more serious second arc.
* FatBestFriend: To both Flit and Emily.
* TagAlongKid: For most of the first generation, until he becomes Vargas' assistant.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Commander Henrik Bruzar
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/140753_9266.jpg]]
-->Voiced by: Ikuya Sawaki (JP)

The commander of the Federation forces at Nora. He serves as a sort of father figure to Flit, and [[spoiler:sacrifices himself to help the colony core escape]].
----
* {{Badass}}
** BadassBeard
** BadassGrandpa
** BadassMoustache: Which he wears completely independently of his beard.
** ColonelBadass
* BlatantLies: [[spoiler:His claim that there is a "secret escape route" for commanders when Millias tries to convince him to leave.]]
* CoolOldGuy
* {{Determinator}}
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
** [[spoiler:DyingMomentOfAwesome: He stays behind in the command centre while everyone else evacuates, so that he can trigger the release mechanism for the colony core. When the base is destroyed by the UE he rides the elevator up the secondary controls and--despite severe injuries--manages to free it. He then climbs into a spaceship and deliberately crashes into the back of the colony, destroying the rubble that was preventing the colony core from breaking free. We all must agree that this man had some serious BrassBalls going on.]]
* [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile]] Thought it's hard to see behind the bushy moustache.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: His death saves thousands of people.]]
* TheMentor: Seems to have been one to Grodek, and is a combination of this and ParentalSubstitute to Flit.
** [[spoiler:MentorOccupationalHazard: He's Flit's mentor. He's dead in three episodes.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: Serves as a paternal or grandfatherly figure to Flit.
* [[spoiler:WeHardlyKnewYe]]

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/140749_1419.jpg]]
!!Deputy-Commander Grodek Ainoa
-->Voiced by: Creator/HirokiTochi (JP)

Bruzar's NumberTwo at Nora, where the United Earth Federation warship, ''Diva'', and the base where Flit Asuno is developing the AGE-1 are stationed. When the colony is attacked, Grodek quickly wrests control of the ''Diva'' from the captain, who intended to abandon the colony. In defiance of the Federation, he embarks on a vigilante quest against the UE.
----
* AntiHero: Type III.
* BadassBeard: Complete with sideburns.
** And possibly a BeardOfSorrow, as it doesn't appear in the flashbacks of his pre-military days.
* BeingGoodSucks: As a reward for destroying Ambat, [[spoiler: the Federation Forces court-martial him for treason and sentence him to life in prison, while taking credit for his operation.]]
* BigGood: Despite [[ByronicHero some complicated issues]], he is this to the crew of the ''Diva'' for being the only one in the Federation who wants to properly fight back against the UE.
* ByronicHero: He's a deeply wounded man who takes on the UE when nobody else in the Federation is willing to, but his main goal is to get back at them rather than protect civilians. And his crew seems to believe that he's more noble than he actually proves to be in the end.
* TheCaptain: He's not supposed to be, but his drive to fight when the rest of the Feddies seem determined to stick their heads in the sand inspires the crew's loyalty anyhow.
* CommissarCap
* CoolShades
* CrusadingWidower
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Lost his wife and daughter in The Day Angel Fell.
* {{Expy}}: A sideburned, sunglasses-wearing captain who has suffered a past trauma. Just like [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX a certain other Gundam captain...]]
* GuileHero: He's willing to kidnap uncooperative officers and key himself into the system as their replacement...and it only escalates from there.
* FanNickname: DAT BEARD!
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: A mild example, but still undeniably present, as his desire for revenge against the UE pushes him to steadily more questionable acts.
* {{Revenge}}: It fuels his desire to battle the UE at all costs and leads him to burn his bridges like it's going out of style.
* ShellShockedVeteran: The Day Angel Fell did bad, ''bad'' things to his mind.
* [[spoiler:SlasherSmile: A few times during the raid on the Vagan base]].
* ShutUpHannibal: [[spoiler: He is [[KilledMidSentence not interested]] in what Yark Dole has to say about the Vagans' reason for war]].
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: One of the worst examples. Grodek, Grudek, Grudech? Ainoa, Ainor, Aynoa, Aynor?
* YouAreInCommandNow: He was Bruzar's deputy commander; when Bruzar realizes that the ''Diva'''s captain intends to abandon the colony, he sends Grodek to seize control of the ship.

!!Millais Alloy
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Millias_Alloy_8948.jpg
-->Voiced by: Creator/YuShimamura

A female officer on-board the ''Diva''. She originally served under Bruzar and is loyal to Grodek, despite some uncertainties.
----
* BrainyBrunette: She's pretty good with computers.
* BridgeBunny: In Generation 1.
* CaptainsLog: [[spoiler:Although not captain ''yet'', she sums up the events after Ambat at the end of Episode 15 in a disillusioned journal entry about Grodek's trial, the origin of the Unknown Enemy, and the continuing corruption and mismanagement of the Federation government.]]
* CoolBigSis: To Flit and Emily.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:When she finds out who the UE were actually people.]]
* MissionControl: The operations and communication officer, to be specific.

!!Adams Tinel
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/140755_8004.jpg
-->Voiced by: Creator/YoshihisaKawahara

One of the bridge staff for the ''Diva''.
----
* DarkSkinnedBlonde
* FatalFamilyPhoto: [[spoiler:Subverted. He narrowly survives the battle of Ambat.]]
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:Similar to Millais and Woolf, he gets one after finding out that the UE were actually humans belonging to Vagan.]]
* MissionControl
* SourSupporter: He's openly skeptical of Grodek's motivations and would much prefer to be doing this ''without'' committing mutiny against Federation command...but he's still manning his post.
* ToBeLawfulOrGood: At one point, he calls in Federation assistance, which gets everyone upset because it means they might all be arrested before they can stop the UE (which, at that point, is what they think Grodek's sole motivation is).

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vargas_age_105.jpg]]
!!Vargas Dyson
-->Voiced by: Naoki Bandou (JP)

Emily's Grandfather and the co-developer of the AGE-1 Gundam AGE-1 Normal. He also serves as an expert mechanic, who makes several upgrades to the Earth Federal Forces's mobile suits.
----
* [[spoiler:BigEater: During Asemu's seventeenth birthday, as shown in the Second Generation.]]
* CoolOldGuy: More like goofy old guy, but still.
* TheEngineer: For the ''Diva's'' mobile suits in general.
* EyesAlwaysShut
* GadgeteerGenius: Subverted. The AGE system does most of the work.
* FirstNameBasis: Flit refers to him as Vargas.
** His great-grandson Asemu does too.
* MrFixit: Thanks to him, Largan's much-abused Genoace is always fresh for the next fight.

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/agelargan_2397.jpg]]
!!Largan Drace
-->Voiced by: Creator/WataruHatano (JP)

A mobile suit pilot of the Earth Federal Forces, who pilots the RGE-B790 Genoace. He is supposed to pilot the AGE-1 Gundam AGE-1 Normal until he was injured during the UE's attack at Nora. After he recovers, he pilots a Genoace that really isn't a match for the UE suits.
----
* BadassNormal: Sure, [[CantCatchUp he has trouble catching up with the heroes in terms of strength & skill]], but that doesn't stop him from going into the fight & lending them help whenever it's needed. The most awesome example was taking on a [[MIghtyGlacier Baqto]] knowing it's an almost hopeless fight & surviving.
* CantCatchUp: His standard-issue Genoace just can't compare with the Gundam or the G-Exes. He's aware of this, judging by his battle cry of "I can fight too!" in Episode 12. [[spoiler:The poor guy is ''finally'' able to destroy a UE suit on-screen in that battle.]]
* ConflictingLoyalty: He grows increasingly distressed over the possibility of engaging in combat with Earth Federal forces due to Grodek's mutiny.
* CoolShades
* FieryRedhead: Kind of subverted; he's usually amicable, but quite determined in battle.
* NiceGuy: He's pretty friendly to everyone he meets and doesn't bear Flit any ill-will for basically stealing his assignment to the Gundam.
* PutOnABus: He doesn't appear in Generation 2.
** He is a character in ''Memories of Sid,'' though, with a BadassBeard.
* TheWorfEffect: This is pretty much his job until Episode 12. UE shows up, Largan gets tossed around, Gundam and/or G-Exes has to rush in.

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/147683_6174.jpg]]
!!Woolf Enneacle
-->Voiced by: Creator/DaisukeOno (JP)

A former Mobile Suit Grand Prix champion, he joined the Earth Federal forces when that got dull and quickly distinguished himself as a skilled pilot. Rather arrogant in attitude, he has expressed an interest in piloting the Gundam himself. Grodek assigns him to lead the ''Diva's'' mobile suit squad.
----
* AceCustom: Prior to getting his hands on the G-Exes, he pilots a custom white Genoace, as befits an Ace like him.
* AcePilot: When he and Flit are caught during a training exercise he quickly proves his skill. For much of Gen 1, he's the only one besides Flit who is capable of taking on the UE suits.
* AnimalEaredHeadband: Technically, it's his hair. It [[AnimeHair automatically falls]] into wolf-ears once it's dry from a shower.
* BadassNormal: No special abilities, not an X-rounder, just pure skill & talent at kicking asses in an MS.
* {{Bishonen}}: To the point he has a ShowerScene just to drive home he's male, if the voice didn't tip anyone off. Bonus points for being voiced by Creator/DaisukeOno.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: Dark-skinned with white hair.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Intentionally. He's a former racer with a massive ego, and loves showing off his moves to anyone unfortunate enough to be his passenger.
* DualWielding: Uses two beam swords in the [=G-EXES=].
* ExpressiveHair: His "ears" twitch.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Episode Four. He steps out of the shower, tells the mirror that he's the best, and then flings the towel away with a declaration of "I'm looking great!"
* TheFightingNarcissist: A minor, heroic example.
* HandsomeLech: He flirts with Millais to annoy her.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:Woolf has one from not only realizing the UE are actually human, but also from seeing a bleeding Vagan soldier he befriended die in his arms.]]
* HumanPopsicle: He was recuperating in a pod in the medical bay whilst the ''Diva'' was docked at Nora, causing considerable bewilderment when he wakes up to find the colony's gone, his ship is under new management, and [[TheHero some dumb kid]] scored the first ever confirmed kills against the UE with a [[SuperPrototype home-made mobile suit]].
* InsistentTerminology: Insists to be called a [[BadassNormal Super]][[AcePilot Pilot]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He quite enjoys being deliberately annoying, but he does care about his comrades. He makes a point of looking out for the less-experienced Flit in battle, almost like an older brother.
* LetsGetDangerous: From his introduction, Woolf seems more or less like an arrogant pretty boy and irritates everyone he meets. Once he's in a battle situation, though, it's plain that his confidence is fully justified.
* ManInWhite: Wears a white pilot suit, has white hair, and flies a white mecha. There's a theme going on here.
* MrFanservice
* NoseArt: Regardless of the suit he's piloting, it ''has'' to have an all-white paintjob.
* RedBaron: "The White Wolf."
* [[spoiler:ShellShockedVeteran: He's horrified by his firsthand discovery that the UE are humans by having one die in his arms.]]
* ShowerScene: His introduction. [[FemaleGaze Hello.]]
* SpiritedCompetitor: He's not brutal enough to be considered a BloodKnight, but going into battle really fires him up.
* TragicKeepsake: [[spoiler:The necklace from the dying Vagan soldier.]]

!!Haro
-->Voiced by: Creator/AyaEndo

Haro is a special computer robot unit developed by Flit during his stay at Nora.
----
* RobotBuddy
* SeriesMascot


!!Stoller Guavaran
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/147915_jpg_9093.png
-->Voiced by: Creator/TaitenKusunoki

A Federal Forces officer on a mission to apprehend Grodek Ainoa.
----
* CommissarCap
* SympatheticInspectorAntagonist: He looks like InspectorJavert at first, but he seems interested in Grodek's information about the UE when he first arrests him (he switches back to chase mode after Grodek's crew comes to the rescue). [[spoiler:In Episode 12, he decides to let the ''Diva'' continue on its self-proclaimed mission after they defeat an UE ambush]].
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: He has a limitless supply of chocolate bars and tends to angrily take a bite whenever he makes a point. He says that his brain needs the energy that chocolate provides.
* WorthyOpponent: He speaks highly of Grodek's cunning [[spoiler:and realizes his true intentions, even predicting his tactics, when the UE interrupts the second arrest attempt]].

[[/folder]]

[[folder: Unknown Enemy (UE)/[[spoiler:Vagan]]]]

The villains of the piece, the UE appeared out of nowhere 14 years earlier, launching seemingly random attacks on Earth and the space colonies. In one of the attacks they destroyed Flit's colony, and killed his mother. What they want--and indeed what they are--was a mystery. [[spoiler:Their true identity is a group of people left for dead in Mars by the Earth Federation when the Mars Colonization plan failed. Whilst their motives are still unknown, their hatred for the Federation that abandoned them is very apparent.]]

'''Tropes associated with the UE as a whole:'''
* AceCustom: The Zedas, a souped-up Gafran that specialises in close combat. [[spoiler:It's Desil's personal suit.]]
* AlienInvasion: Highly speculated, in and out of series. [[spoiler:Turns out they're human.]]
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: The Baqto features a LaserBlade built into its right arm.
** The Gafran was displaying this long before the Baqto was introduced, having them produced by their own [[ArmCannon hand vulcans]]. The Zedas' tail blade is often held in the same manner, but can be held in a more traditional method as well.
* CombatPragmatist: They always operate in teams, attack military bases before they can mobilise, retreat when faced with superior opposition, shoot down ships and/or weapons before they can be finished launching, bypass individual enemies to focus on the main mission objectives, and have no problem using superweapons when their initial attack fails. So far they've demonstrated a remarkable amount of GenreSavvy, pragmatism and genuine tactical aptitude.
* ChestBlaster: Standard for UE suits, though the precise kind varies according to the model.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: The UE don't really play by standard ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' rules.
* TheDreaded: Before the completion of the Gundam, ''nobody'' has ever defeated a UE mobile suit. When they show up, a colony dies.
* DualWielding: The Zedas that attacked Nora in Episode 3 carried a pair of beam sabres.
* EliteMooks: The Baqto heavy assault suit, the MightyGlacier to the Gafran's FragileSpeedster.
* FragileSpeedster: The Gafran was a LightningBruiser prior to the introduction of the AGE-1. Even afterwards it remains a speedy target, that's difficult to lock onto, without PsychicPowers.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: Even after we learn precisely who and what they are, their motives remain a mystery.
* [[spoiler:HumanAllAlong: The UE are from Vagan, a nation of survivors from the failed Mars Colonization Project.]]
* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: The Gafrans have a dragon-like alt mode, complete with wings and tails.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: The UE are ''very'' cagey adversaries.
* LaserBlade: The Zedas duel wields beam sabres in its battle with Flit.
* LightningBruiser: So far the Zedas is this. It's even faster than the already speedy Gafran, heavily armoured enough to shrug off hits from the DOTS-Rifle, and carries two beam sabres that allow it to engage the AGE on an even basis. The Gafran ''was'' this prior to the introduction of the Gundam.
* MechaMooks: The Gafrans are the UE's standard unit, though they're tougher than many ''Gundam'' {{mooks}}. The Baqtos are EliteMooks.
* MightyGlacier: The Baqto is as close to this trope as the mobility-obsessed UE design ethos allows - in other words, the Federation's suits can actually keep up with it.
* PowerPalms: All UE suits feature [[GatlingGood beam gatlings]] in each palm. In the more advanced models, these can be turned into [[LaserBlade beam sabres]] for close-quarters combat.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Fans can't seem to agree with the spelling of the UE's real name. [[spoiler:Is it Vagan (currently the most accepted spelling), Veigan, or [[UnfortunateImplications Vegan]] (by far, the most amusing)?]]
* TransformingMecha: The Gafrans have a dragon-like alt-mode. The Zedas transforms into a jet/UFO cross.
* WeHaveReserves: They will cheerfully finish off wounded allies, though this may have more to do with ensuring that none of their secrets fall into the hands of their enemies.
* WeaponsOfMassDestruction: The colony destroyer that the Gafrans can mount as an optional weapon.

!!Desil Galette
-->Voiced by: Creator/AyahiTakagaki (JP)

A red-haired boy Flit meets on Fardain. Although he appears to be a young child, Desil seems to have the same abilities as Yurin, and is already a master Mobile Suit pilot. [[spoiler:He is a pilot for Vagan's advance force, and due to his skill is given quite a bit of freedom to act as he pleases]].
----
* AcePilot: He hijacks the Gundam and destroys a couple of UE suits with it.
* [[spoiler:{{Archenemy}}: Flit's.]]
* AxCrazy: From trashing his room in Episode 10 to giving a SlasherSmile [[spoiler:when he's about to head out against the Gundam,]] this kid is anything but sane.
* BadassAdorable
* [[ManInWhite Boy In White]]
* [[spoiler:BloodKnight: Desil is probably one of the youngest (and most heinous) examples imaginable.]]
* ChildProdigy: He's noticeably precocious and a disturbingly good MS pilot.
* [[ChildSoldiers Child Soldier]]: Of the Precociously Talented type, though it's played for anything but cutesyness.
* ColourCodedForYourConvenience: His black Zedas.
* CreepyChild: He's just as cheerful as you'd expect a kid his age to be... but the episode he was introduced in was titled "The Demon Boy" and he has made some rather unsettling comments about Flit's survival.
-->"I hope to meet you again, Flit-oniisan... if you survive long enough, that is."
* DeliberatelyCuteChild: Poses as an innocent orphan in need of rescue to get into the ''Diva''.
* [[spoiler:TheDragon: To both EDEN and Vagan.]]
* [[spoiler:EnfanteTerrible: He's a kindergartner who will toast his own allies for fun.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilIsNotPacifist: Desil's obsessed with battles, perhaps more so than [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Ali Al-Saachez,]] which is '''really saying something.''']]
* [[spoiler:EvilRedHead]]
* {{Expy}}: [[spoiler: He could pass as [[MobileSuitGundam00 Ali Al-Saachez and Nena Trinity]]'s love child. More so, his outfit is reminiscent of the Trinity siblings.]]
* [[spoiler:ForTheEvulz: He believes that going to battles and killing people are fun.]]
* TheHeavy: Of the First Generation. Sure Yark Dore outranks him, and Lord Ezelcant is there in the background, pulling the strings, but it's Desil that the audience and Flit are focused on as the generation draws to a close.
* [[spoiler: HeroKiller: Killed Yurin.]]
* ImprobableAge: The biggest example in ''Gundam'' yet, as a child who is both an AcePilot [[spoiler:and an AxCrazy BloodKnight.]]
* [[spoiler:InfantImmortality: It's the only reason why Flit lets him live at the end of Episode 14.]]
* [[spoiler:LackOfEmpathy: Other people, including allies, are just toys for his amusement.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: Desil takes advantage of his childlike appearance to get Flit to let him board the ''Diva'', where he promptly takes the opportunity to steal the Gundam.
* NotWorthKilling: Orders a retreat because he's bored with watching the UE run rings around the [[MightyGlacier Gundam Titus]].
* OneHundredAndEight: He was born in the year AG 108.
* PlayingAgainstType: It's very hard to imagine she shares the same seiyuu with [[MobileSuitGundam00 Feldt Grace]]...
* PsychicPowers: Similar telepathic abilities to Yurin, [[spoiler:making him an X-Rounder as well]].

A young girl Flit rescues as he's fleeing Nora's collapse. She has some kind of extrasensory perception, using it to guide Flit out of the colony. Similarly to Flit, she was orphaned by the UE, and was later adopted by the richest man in the Minsry colony, but has trouble accepting the idea of him as her family. [[spoiler:It is heavily implied that she, like Flit, is an X-Rounder, thus why Desil pressed her into joining Vagan in Episode 12]].

* {{Expy}}: It didn't take the fans long to notice her uncanny resemblance to [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Tiffa Adill]]. [[spoiler:But based on the final episodes of Flit's arc, she's also not unlike [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Lalah Sune]]. [[LoveHurts Poor Flit.]]]]

* [[spoiler:MyParentsAreDead: She, like Flit, lost her parents to a UE attack on her original space colony.]]

* PsychicPowers: She has predictive/[[{{telepathy}} telepathic]] behaviour during combat. [[spoiler:That is one of the telltale signs of her being an X-Rounder.]]
** [[spoiler: PoweredByAForsakenChild: When the Veigans got to her, they strapped poor Yurin inside the cockpit of a MS and then used her as an amplifier for Desil's own powers.]]

* [[spoiler:SnowMeansDeath]]: [[spoiler:While dying, she shares a psychic vision of her time on Minsry with Flit. As the vision of Minsry's forest ends, the scenery changes and it starts to snow]].
* [[spoiler:StuffedIntoTheFridge]]: [[spoiler:She had about twenty minutes to half an hour of screentime and characterization before the episode in which she dies.]]
* [[spoiler:TakingTheBullet]]: [[spoiler:Not unlike Lalah from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam.'' It is interesting to note, however, that the roles were inverted, that is, the ''villain'' was the one who killed the LoveInterest, not the hero. However, it does go down the same way as the death of [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Four Murasame]].]]

!Second Generation

[[folder:Earth Federal Forces]]

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/132375_2312.jpg]]
!!Asemu Asuno
-->Voiced by: Creator/TakuyaEguchi (JP)

The second protagonist and Flit's son. He's 17 years old at the start of his story. Asemu is a kind-hearted person who greatly admires his father and wants to both impress and live up to his standard. When he is given the Gundam and joins the military, however, he struggles with being a soldier and having a former friend in Vagan, and quickly develops an inferiority complex that drives him into recklessness and insubordination.
----
* AcePilot: Subverted. While hardly incompetent, he's not as Ace as his dad, mentor, or RivalTurnedEvil, and this propels his character arc. [[spoiler: He becomes one after said mentor dies.]]
* AlliterativeName
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: He sees himself as second-best to Zeheart in battle [[spoiler: and as the object of Romary's affections]] at first. Add that to his inferiority complex towards his father, and it's no wonder some viewers noticed some SanitySlippage.
* AnimeHair: As you can see, it's a spiked mullet with a ponytail. [[spoiler:The spikes get even bigger by the time he's a father]].
* {{Badass}}: Like father, like son.
** BadassBiker
** [[spoiler:BadassNormal: It turns out that he did not inherit his father's X-Rounder abilities. This puts him at a serious disadvantage over Zeheart. Despite this, he proves himself later to be a very dangerous MS pilot([[AcePilot and not just because he's piloting a Gundam...]]), managing to singlehandedly kill and obliterate Desil--a powerful X-Rounder--in their duel.]]
*** [[spoiler: He even becomes the one person that can out-duel Zeheart in a straight-on fight. That is, until his son, Kio comes along...]]
** [[spoiler:EmpoweredBadassNormal: For a single episode. He uses the captured mu-szell--a Vagan helmet--to give himself X-Rounder powers, and manages to take out Leo of the Magician's Eight. However, [[PsychicNosebleed the helmet causes him physical pain and brain damage]], so he abandons it.]]
* BeYourself: What Woolf and Rody urged him to do instead of copying his father, but losing to X-Rounders and [[WhatTheHellDad Flit's attitude]] made it hard for the lesson to stick. [[spoiler:Until Episode 26, when he rips Desil to pieces for killing Woolf.]]
* BerserkButton: Zeheart, thanks to Asemu struggling with being angry at him or being sad about him, not to mention the fact that Zeheart keeps beating him when they get into duels. [[spoiler:They finally reconcile in Episode 27]].
* BreakoutCharacter: Perhaps the most popular of the three protagonists. He is also the only one who got an entire OVA.
* [[spoiler: CantCatchUp: His biggest worry for most of his arc is that he won't be able to match his father and Zeheart as a MS pilot.]]
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Romary in ''Memory of Eden''.
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: It's understandable that he rushes out to the Gundam every time there's a Vagan attack. Saving the school bully from dying of lack of oxygen? Heroic blood.
* ComingOfAgeStory: Starts as a regular kid who joins the military to impress his dad. Ends as a {{Badass}}.
* [[DangerousSixteenthBirthday Dangerous Seventeenth Birthday]]
* DontThinkFeel: What Woolf was telling him to do during piloting. [[spoiler: When Asem mastered it, it allowed him to become [[PsychicStatic unreadable for X-Rounders]].]]
* DualWielding:
** Notably takes up a "two sword style" once he pilots the Gundam.
** Probably inspired by Woolf's style. The second ED shows Asemu's younger self playing with a G-Exes model.
** Taken to new levels with the Double Bullet. It was designed with dual-wielding in mind.
* {{Expy}}: With his rival being a powerful X-Rounder [[spoiler:and having limited X-Rounder aptitude himself]], he seems to be developing into AGE's equivalent of [[spoiler:[[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Garrod Ran]].]]
** Personality-wise, he bears similarities to [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory Kou Uraki]].
** Since the show acts as being to similar to all 3 of the original Universal Century Shows he counts as the Kamille to Flit's Amuro and Kio's Judau.
** He is also called [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam The White Devil]], although that's more of a MythologyGag.
** His Age-2 manages to be an expy of the 00 Gundam and the Zeta Gundam at the same time.
* EmoTeen: Mainly because of issues with his dad.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Asemu is really a kindhearted person who wants to protect his friends and family.
* [[spoiler:HappilyMarried: With Romary in Episode 28.]]
* HereditaryHairstyle: He has Emily's close-cut-with-ponytail, along with the blond gene.
* TheHero: Of Part II.
* HeroicBSOD: When the Zedas R stands victorious over the Gundam and Zeheart pops out to tell him he shouldn't be fighting.
** And again when the pose is repeated, only with Zeheart in the Zeydra and Asemu in the Gundam AGE-2.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: He flies into the Vagan fortress to stop a ColonyDrop with no expectation that he'll have time to escape. Fortunately for him, [[SubvertedTrope Ezelcant had a way out prepared for Zeheart]], who had ''also'' flown in to do the same thing.]]
* HotBlooded: Becomes increasingly so on the battlefield.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial [[IJustWantToBeSpecial and Special]]: He gets a "D" on the aptitude test for X-Rounding. This led him to make bad decisions on the battlefield and go to extreme lengths in an attempt to "correct" the deficiency.
* KidHero: Subverted. He's also the oldest of the three protagonists. And by the time he graduates from his school, a year and a half have passed since his 17th birthday/introduction, making him 18 at this point and therefore technically an adult.
* LeeroyJenkins: This was his default tactic for most of Gen 2. It got him in trouble with Millais and thrown into the brig a lot, and ultimately [[spoiler:got Woolf killed]].
* [[spoiler:LegacyCharacter: To Woolf, in all but name.]]
** Reinforced in Episode 28, [[spoiler: where in the one-year timeskip, his Gundam has a white color scheme and he himself is all in white.]]
* [[spoiler:ManInWhite: At the very end of the Second Generation, in tribute to Woolf.]]
* MeaningfulName: "Asem" is Arabic in origin, and means "protector, guardian, or defender." Given where he draws his strength from, it's quite apt.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: Gets a more obvious one than his dad. Whilst the Titus and Spallow had their pros and cons relative to the AGE-1 Normal, the Double Bullet is nothing but an improvement on the AGE-2.
* MilitaryBrat: Unlike most, his dad is a high-ranking officer, but it still means that Asemu doesn't get to see him very often.
* MilitaryMaverick: Spends much of his time growing into one, with Woolf's encouragement.
* NiceGuy: Although he enters the show by [[BewareTheNiceOnes taking some other kids to task]] for bullying his friends, he seems to be quite pleasant to people who give the same courtesy to him.
** Zeheart tries several times to dissuade Asemu from joining or remaining in the military by saying he's too kind to be on a battlefield.
* [[spoiler:NeverFoundTheBody: All that was recovered of the AGE-2 from his final mission was the core block containing the AGE system and the AGE Device.]]
* NewMeat: As a mobile suit pilot. The difference between him, Max, and Arisa is a smidge of experience, untapped talent, and that the AGE-2 is a ''much'' stronger mobile suit than their Adeles.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: That is, until his father gives him the AGE device for his birthday and he [[FallingIntoTheCockpit falls into the AGE-1's cockpit]].
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: With Romary.
* [[spoiler:PsychicPowers: Averted. Despite being Flit's son, he has not inherited his father's X-Rounder abilities, so it's going to take more than piloting a Gundam to turn him into an AcePilot.]]
* RedBaron: [[spoiler:According to a sidestory manga that takes place in AG 151, Asemu has become known as the White Devil on the battlefield, a moniker he shares [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam with the original Gundam pilot]].]]
* [[spoiler:{{Retirony}}: His final mission was supposed to be a routine survey of a debris field. His squad was promptly wiped out by [=SID=] and he nearly died himself, but was luckily discovered by the Bisidian pirates.]]
* ScreamingWarrior: Basically as soon as he sees Zeheart on the field.
* [[spoiler:SecondLove: To Romary.]]
* SecretIdentity: Vargas tells him to enforce this while he's still at school. It becomes unnecessary when he joins the military. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, Zeheart figures it out right from the get-go.]]
* [[AcePilot Super Pilot]]: [[spoiler:Despite not being an X-Rounder and the obvious advantages of being one, Woolf encourages him to improve on, and rely on his own skill and become a Super Pilot to make up for it. Right before Woolf dies, he even tells Asemu to be become the best damn Super Pilot in the world.]]
* [[spoiler:ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Unlike his father, Asemu wastes no time in '''completely obliterating''' Desil after he kills Woolf.]]
* TransformingMecha: The AGE-2 has a fighter mode and a suit mode.
* UpbringingMakesTheHero: Unlike many, many ''Gundam'' protagonists Asemu has GoodParents whom he deeply loves and respects.
* WasItAllALie: He asks this to Zeheart once the latter reveals himself to be a Vagan.
* WellDoneSonGuy: He's determined to win the Mobile Suit contest no matter what, in order to impress Flit. Living up to his famous father also pressures him to work hard when he joins the military.
* WorthyOpponent: [[spoiler:He and Zeheart eventually see each other as this.]]

!!Flit Asuno
-->Voiced by: Creator/KazuhikoInoue (JP)
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/flit_408.bmp]]

A Vice Admiral by the time of the second generation, Flit continues to fight against the Vagan, albeit from a position of authority. As the commander of Big Ring, he makes the strategies with which the Earth Federation fights the Vagan, and is not above getting back into the AGE-1 and flying into combat himself. He is 39 at the start of Asemu's story.
----
* TheAce: His son sees him as this. [[spoiler:As time goes on, this becomes a BrokenPedestal.]]
** BrokenAce
* AcePilot: Still got it.
* ActionDad: An active member of military service--in fact, an admiral--and still a more-than-capable pilot.
* AntiHero: Type IV.
* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking
* '''{{Badass}}''': Age has not stopped him from being one when he needs to be.
** BadassMustache: Very much so.
*** BadassBeard: What the above evolves into by the Third generation.
** FourStarBadass: He's the commander of Earth Federal Forces & [[spoiler:is still a very deadly Mobile Suit pilot, as seen in his team up with his son against the Galette brothers.]]
* BerserkButton: Even after marrying Emily and having two children together, do '''NOT''' remind him of Yurin's death.
** Also, don't be Desil.
* BigGood: In the second generation, despite [[{{Revenge}} even]] [[SanitySlippage more]] [[MyGreatestFailure complicated]] [[BerserkButton issues]] than with Grodek in first generation.
* CombatPragmatist: Very much so.
* CoolShades: Sports these in Episode 16.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow
* DadTheVeteran
* DarkMessiah: He wants to save humanity, yay! ...by killing every single Vagan, because he considers them inhuman.
* {{Expy}}: As an adult, one could argue that he also has a more than passing resemblance to [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Patrick Zala]].
* HappilyMarried: To Emily, with two children (Asemu and Unoa). In a subversion, despite caring for his family, after 25 years he shows no signs of forgetting about Yurin's death anytime soon. Very understandable, considering how he lost her.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: His ultimate goal, starting in the second generation, is the extermination of Vagan.
* HeyItsThatVoice: [[MobileSuitZetaGundam Jerrid Messsa]] is now TheHero's father.
* FallenHero: From TheHero to DarkMessiah.
* [[ILetGwenStacyDie I Let Yurin Die]]: [[MyGreatestFailure And he never gets over it.]]
* JerkAssWoobie: He turns into one after Yurin's death.
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: Yurin's death has all but made him a fanatic for exterminating the Vagans.
* LackOfEmpathy: Whenever it comes to the people of Vagan.
* LivingLegend
* NotSoDifferent: To Lord Ezelcant. Not only is Flit an X-Rounder, but he also wants to protect his people...even if it means killing every last enemy in his path.
* ParentsAsPeople: He loves Asemu and Unoa, but his military position keeps him away from home for long periods of time. He also puts a ''lot'' of pressure on Asemu to carry on the legacy of the Gundam and isn't there to see how much Asemu obsesses over it.
* [[spoiler:PleaseDontLeaveMe: "You're leaving me again...." Said when he realizes that Woolf is dead.]]
* {{Revenge}}: Flit's desire for revenge has gone UpToEleven due to Yurin's death.
* SanitySlippage: He's pretty cool most of the time, but when Algreus asks about the possibility of peace with Vagan...
* [[spoiler:SkywardScream: When Grodek [[DiedInYourArmsTonight dies in his arms]] at the end of Episode 24.]]
* ShellShockedVeteran: Like you would not believe.
* StillGotIt: Kicks some serious ass in the defense of Big Ring.
* TookALevelInJerkass: JustifiedTrope considering how Yurin's death ''and'' the whole war scarred him.
* [[spoiler:UsedToBeASweetKid: Seems to be the common reaction after he revealed the purpose of his coup d'etat in Episode 28.]]
* [[spoiler:VillainProtagonist: From Episode 28 onwards.]]
* WhatTheHellDad: Towards Asemu. After the boy joins the military, Flit progressively turns to treating him as a subordinate and not as a son.
** [[spoiler:Moreover, he was nowhere to be seen during his son's wedding. Really, Flit?]]
*** [[AllThereInTheManual According to a drama track]], [[spoiler:Flit ''was'' present at his son's wedding, along with Romary's parents; they just weren't seen in the animated scene.]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: He did not aged gracefully. Both Woolf and Millais actually look ''a lot'' younger than him.


!!Emily Asuno

Flit's wife and Asemu and Yunoa's mother.
----
* EveryoneLovesBlondes
* FirstGirlWins: It's more of a PyrrhicVictory for her though, as Flit will never get over letting Yurin die and she's aware of it.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold
* PutOnABus: For the majority of the second generation. Understandable given that she isn't in the military, but there's no indication that she and Asemu even write to each other.
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: See FirstGirlWins.

!!Yunoa Asuno
-->Voiced by: AsukaOgame (JP)

Asemu's younger sister. She looks up to her mother and her brother and also enjoys hanging around with her family's Haro.
----
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Refreshingly averted. She's actually a very pleasant sibling to Asemu, not to mention that she has a great sense of humor at the dinner table.
* [[spoiler: [[CoolUncle Cool Aunt]]: Eventually.]]
* EveryoneLovesBlondes
* GenerationXerox: She shares most of her mother's appearance. She is also outgoing and optimistic, much like her father used to be.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold
* TheMedic: This is what she does offscreen while her older brother is flying around in a Gundam.
* MilitaryBrat
* NiceGirl
* ThePollyanna

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ageromary_5310.jpg]]
!!Romary Stone
-->Voiced by: Creator/KanaHanazawa (JP)

A popular girl in Asemu's high school. Much to the annoyance of her best friends, she shows an interest in Asemu's mobile suits. She follows Asemu into the military and becomes part of the bridge crew on the ''Diva'', but she seems unsuited for the military life.
----
* BettyAndVeronica: She is the Archie in a LoveTriangle between Asemu (Betty) and Zeheart (Veronica).
* BridgeBunny: On the Diva, starting Episode 19.
* CannotSpitItOut: There are several scenes where she plainly ''wants'' to say something and it doesn't articulate. Or she [[SayMyName just says the name of the person in question]].
* ChildhoodFriends: With Asemu in ''Memory of Eden''. [[spoiler:Goes hand-in-hand with ChildhoodFriendRomance.]]
* DoggedNiceGirl: Develops a crush on Zeheart after the latter rescues her from getting hit by a wrench. [[spoiler:By Episode 28, she has gotten over this and marries Asemu.]]
* {{Expy}}: Within the ''Gundam'' franchise, she's not unlike [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Fa Yuiry]] or [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory Nina Purpleton]].
** [[spoiler: Her appearance as an adult looks very similar to [[MobileSuitGundam00 Kinue Crossroad]].]]
* GiveGeeksAChance: Unlike her best friends, Romary is genuinely interested in Asemu and his friends' mobile suit project.
* GoThroughMe:[[spoiler:Places herself between Asemu and Zeheart, in order to protect Zeheart from Asemu who was armed with a gun.]]
* [[spoiler:HappilyMarried: With Asemu in Episode 28.]]
* HeroesWantRedheads: She's the LoveInterest for Asemu. [[spoiler:Episode 28 makes this [[OfficialCouple official with her marriage]].]]
* HeroicBSOD: When she sees [[spoiler:Zeheart stepping out of the Zedas R.]]
* MilitaryBrat
* NiceGirl
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: With Asemu.
* PopularityFoodChain
* [[spoiler:PutOnABus: Like Emily, she gets hardly any screentime or dialogue in the next generation.]]
* SecretKeeper: For Asem being a Gundam pilot.
* ShrinkingViolet: Acts like this after joining the military.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The girly girl to Arisa's tomboy.
* WhatTheHellHero: On the receiving end of a nonverbal one from Asemu after [[spoiler: preventing him from capturing Zeheart.]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Grade B.

!!Arisa Gunhale
-->Voiced by: Creator/AmiKoshimizu (JP)

A rookie pilot for Woolf's squadron and Dique's daughter. While outgoing and competitive, she lacks the battle experience at the time of her introduction.
----
* ActionGirl: Downplayed.
* DotingParent: Astonishingly enough, according to her son.
* FunPersonified: It is really hard not to grin when she's onscreen.
* GenerationXerox: Even though she's a girl who's much fitter than her father, she acquires much of her father's fashion sense as well as his skin tone and hair color.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: To Asemu. However, Gunhales do this by slapping the fellow in question on the ass.
* NewMeat: Her first real battle is in Episode 19, and it shows.
* NiceGirl: Despite her competitive nature, she's still quite friendly with Asemu.
* PluckyGirl: Being a rookie, she can barely keep up with Obright, Woolf, and Asemu at first. Unlike Max, though, she never [[CantCatchUp mopes about it]] and eventually does become an effective member of the squad.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: The tomboy to Romary's girly girl.
* ThroughHisStomach: Not quite romantic, but she tries to cheer Asemu up by bringing him some food during one of his stints in the brig. (Presumably because his butt is out of reach.)
* WhatMeasureIsAMook: When Asemu asks how she feels about killing enemy pilots, Arisa says it's a waste of time to think about it.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Blue Green Hair]]: She gets her pale blue hair from her father.

!!Millais Alloy
The captain of the ''Diva'', she is the commanding officer of Asemu Asuno.
----
* AloofDarkHairedGirl: She's not as friendly to the new crew as she was in the first generation since she is their captain, not their comrade.
* TheCaptain: She's in command of the ''Diva'' in Asemu's arc. Unlike her predecessor, she got there ''without'' hacking into the Federation database.
** TheGoodCaptain
* CommissarCap: Sports one in the second generation, as per her promotion to captain of the ''Diva''.
* OlderThanSheLooks: She definitely ''does not'' look like she is older than Flit, being fifty years old and all.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Her first appearances as captain show her to be quite good at her job. When Flit starts to use the ''Diva'' as his flagship, though, her role is reduced to something like a glorified chauffeur.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: She's pretty strict with her raw bridge crew and disciplines Asemu for insubordination even though he destroyed both the Vagan suits he was fighting. Because, as she says to Woolf, the enemy won't make allowance for them being "just kids" either.

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/agewoolf_4619.jpg]]
!!Woolf Enneacle
Promoted to mobile suit commander aboard the ''Diva'' by the Second Generation, he is Asemu's direct superior. Pilots the G-Bouncer, his next-generation all-white custom mobile suit.
----
* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking
* BadassNormal: One of his major crowning achievements in the second generation was to defeat one of the Magicians Eight in single combat. Despite not being an X-Rounder, he manages to win handily due to his own skills.
* AFatherToHisMen: He's much more concerned with his squad staying alive than with defeating Vagan.
* [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile: Smiles as he tells Asemu to surpass him.]]
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: He pushes Asemu out of the way of a beam saber attack from Desil in Episode 26, taking the hit instead.]]
* HotBloodedSideburns: The tufts make it nearly resemble Grodek's BeardOfSorrow, but not quite.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Rest in Peace, White Wolf. May you keep riding on in the heavens & proud of your protege becoming the Super Pilot he always was.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The "jerk" part is lipservice by this point; he just tells his squad to stay alive because he has fun annoying his subordinates.
* LargeHam: He mellows into one by the second generation. (Yes, mellows.)
* LivingLegend
* TheMentor: Serves as this to Asemu.
* [[spoiler:MentorOccupationalHazard: Was TheObiWan to Asemu. Is killed by Desil saving him.]]
* MilitaryMaverick: According to what Arisa's heard, he's a pain in the ass for Command. But according to previous subordinate Obright, he is also a very good commander.
* TheObiWan
* [[spoiler:ObiWanMoment: He tells Asemu one last time to be proud of himself, and that [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre he can become a better pilot than Woolf]].]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: The guy aged gracefully to say the least.
* StillGotIt: Despite being 49 at the start of Asemu's story, he's easily one of the most skilled pilots in the Federation.
* [[AcePilot Super Pilot]]
* [[spoiler:TakingTheBullet]]
* [[spoiler:WhiteShirtOfDeath]]

!!Dique Gunhale

* FatBestFriend: To Flit.
* NonActionGuy
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Max Hartway
-->Voiced by: Creator/DaisukeSakaguchi

Another rookie in Woolf's squadron. He prays to God for strength before going into battle.
----
* CantCatchUp: Seems to feel this in regards to Asemu.
* NervousWreck
* NewMeat: He'd never been in live combat until Episode 19, and it knocks his confidence around some.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: When he runs into Asemu at the Advanced Pilot Training Program:
--> "I'm not here because I'm upset that you have a better record than I do, even though I outrank you."
* TokenReligiousTeammate

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ageobright_993.jpg]]
!!Obright Lorain

A Genoace pilot who has served under Woolf before. He's noticeably calmer than the rookies.
----
* CaptainObvious: Explaining "Advanced Pilot Training Program for Next Generation Types" with "It's an advanced training program to cultivate next generation pilots". Lampshaded by Arisa.
* CrushBlush: Whenever he talks to Remi.
* LoveAtFirstSight: With Remi. [[spoiler:In traditional ''Gundam'' fashion, [[LoveHurts it ends horribly.]]]]
* LoveConfession: In Episode 25, he blurts out his love for Remi and proposes marriage in front of the whole mobile suit bay, out of nowhere. She flees. [[spoiler:She accepts the next episode.]]

* [[spoiler:DiesWideOpen]]
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: She dies while protecting Diva from Mink. Although she wasn't intending to, she doesn't mind dying for her home.]]

!!Zeheart Galette
-->Voiced by: Creator/HiroshiKamiya (JP)

A Vagan operative who infiltrates Asemu's school, looking for the Gundam. He is Desil's younger brother. He was promoted to Commander of Earth Occupation Force after his infiltration mission. Zeheart is troubled by his genuine friendship with Asemu and in general is not a bad person, but he's utterly devoted to the Vagan cause and will do whatever it takes to carry it through.
----

* AcePilot
* AntiVillain: Mix of Types I and II.
* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking
* {{Badass}} {{Bishonen}}: He has a lot of fans (mostly girls) during his time at school due to the fact [[BecomingTheMask he's actually a pretty nice guy and cares about his new found friends even though he's a Vagan spy]]. He's also a very dangerous MS pilot and [[spoiler:up until now not even [[TheHero Asemu]] has beaten him in a straight fight]].
** [[spoiler: Scratch that 'cause as of Episode 27 even he has trouble keeping up with an [[DontThinkFeel "Awakened"]][[BadassNormal Asemu]] during their final duel. Still doesn't loosen his Badass-ness though.]]
* BecomingTheMask: He [[GenreSavvy is aware of it]] and refuses to give into his amicable feelings, though it's probably a good thing for the Vagans that they started the operation when they did.
** This becomes more literal when he is given his new mobile suit that requires a mask-like helmet to use effectively. The Engineers say that taking it off will make it less effective, so he has to leave it on indefinitely.
* ChickMagnet: A horde of his fangirls can be seen during graduation.
* CoolMask: [[spoiler:Justified. It helps control his X-Rounder abilities.]]
* TheDragon: Assigned by Lord Ezelcant as his commander of Earth Occupation Forces.
* {{Expy}}[=/=]CharClone: His mask is similar looking to Char and he evens pilots red mobile suit that goes three times faster than normal Vagan suits.
** On a sub-note, his characterization of sincere loyalty to Vagan ideology and his role in a LoveTriangle with Asemu and Romary makes him a ''clone'' of ''another'' CharClone, [[MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory Anavel Gato]].
* TheHeavy: Takes over the role from his brother for much of Second Generation.
* HeyItsThatVoice: [[MobileSuitGundam00 Tieria Erde]] has become A CHAR!
* IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler: With regards to Desil. He had already been intending to remove Desil from the battlefield somehow, due to his insubordination and vengeful recklessness. Given the choice between saving his brother (and probably losing the surviving Magicians Eight in the process) or letting Asemu resolve the problem permanently, Zeheart opts for the latter.]]
* ImprobableAge: Ezelcant himself places him in charge of the Earth Occupation Forces. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] when his men grumble about being placed under a kid's command.
* ItMeantSomethingToMe: When Asemu asked if [[WasItAllALie he was just pretending to be a friend]], he answered with "Perhaps we could have (otherwise) remained friends".
* LongHairedPrettyBoy
* MidSeasonUpgrade: Goes from the Zedas R to [[spoiler:the Zeydra]].
* NewTransferStudent: His cover story to infiltrate the colony. And apparently, this is all it takes for the Federation to arrest him for spying.
* NonchalantDodge: Against the school bully on his first day. He does so while faking an apologetic bow.
* PsychicPowers: Is an X-Rounder and his powers as so strong that it wasn't till he received the [[spoiler:Zeydra]] that he could pilot a mobile suit that could keep up with him. Even then he has to [[spoiler:wear a mask to control his abilities.]]

[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Desil_Gallette-Second_Generation_4356.bmp]]
!!Desil Galette
-->Voiced by: TakumaTerashima (JP)

A Vagan pilot and the older brother of Zeheart, he has spent most of the last 25 years brooding over his defeat at Flit Asuno's hand and thirsts for revenge. Unlike the first generation, he holds no rank greater than that of pilot, much to his chagrin.
----
* AcePilot
* {{Archenemy}}: Of Flit Asuno. Neither one of them is ready to let go of their grudges from the first generation.
* AxCrazy: He's not above killing ''his own allies'' if it gets him what he wants.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[spoiler:He complained about how boring his fight was with Asemu and Woolf. Later on, Asemu gave him exactly what he wished for and more.]]
* BigBrotherBully: Verbally abusive to Desil.
* TheBrute: After his younger brother outranked him, he become pretty much this, serving as Vagan's attack dog.
* ChildSoldier: His past as one actually helps to explain why he comports himself like a comic book villain if you stop and think about it. Desil may be thirty-three now, but mentally, he's still an enraged seven-year old trying to look cool.
* ColourCodedForYourConvenience: The Khronos' black colour scheme.
* DarkIsEvil: The Khronos.
* DemotedToExtra: An in universe example, and he is not pleased with it one bit.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: In ''Memory of Eden'', [[spoiler:After Zeheart finds out the true objective of Project Eden]], Even he thinks the plan is insane.
* EvilRedhead
* {{Expy}}: By the second generation, Desil has a lot in common with [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Ali Al-Saachez]], and Ali's own model, [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Yazan Gable]], the original ''Gundam'' PsychoForHire.
** Desil also has a counterpart in a figure from RealLife military history, that being WorldWarOne AcePilot Lothar von Richthofen, brother of the more famous [[RedBaron Manfred]]. Both were psychotically aggressive BloodKnight-types and the less accomplished (though still talented) brothers of fellow aces in red machines using considerably more measured tactics. It should be noted that the real Richthofen brothers had a much better relationship. Manfred lived in constant fear that his brother would get himself killed with his reckless fighting style, whereas Zeheart [[spoiler:coldly sits back and allows that very thing to happen once his brother has proven himself to be a liability]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: The Gundampedia segment for Episode 22 mentioned that Desil's mobile suit, the Khronos, was rumored to have the ability to control other mobile suits. [[spoiler:Guess what he does in Episode 26?]]
* [[spoiler: HeroKiller: Once again killed a major character. This time it's Woolf, though [[TakingTheBullet unintentionally]]. Not that he felt sorry for it.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: He hates Flit for having the audacity to defeat him. Still doesn't understand why Flit hates him in turn. [[spoiler:He's still willing to use his own soldiers as CannonFodder, too.]]
* ItsPersonal: With Flit, following his humiliation at Flit's hands.
* IWasQuiteALooker: As a kid, he at least could make himself sorta pass as a cute little boy. As an adult, he'd fit in LooksLikeCesare if not for the red hair.
* JerkassHasaPoint: In ''Memory of Eden'', he makes several points calling Zeheart out when he could have destroyed the Gundam, and he calls Zeheart on following Ezelcant's plan [[spoiler:even after Ezelcant's plan is told and shown to be insane.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Asemu utterly annihilates Desil in Episode 26.]]
* LackOfEmpathy
* LeanAndMean: Down to a skeletal weight.
* TheLoad: In the Second Generation, Desil actually started possessing these traits as his actions began hurting the Vagans. Eventually, Zeheart had to cut ties somewhere...
* ObviouslyEvil
* OlderHeroVsYoungerVillain: He's a lot older than Asem, sure enough, but since his core grudge remains with Flit, he's still an example of this.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Villainous example. Desil is still a highly-dangerous psychopath; it's only when compared to Zeheart that he comes up lacking.
* PsychoForHire
* PsychopathicManchild: Desil hasn't grown up yet, and has no plans to.
* ShirtlessScene: Introduced this way after the TimeSkip. [[EstrogenBrigadeBait Cue squealing fangirls.]]
* SiblingRivalry: Is NOT happy that his younger brother Zeheart outranks him. However, this seems to be one-sided on Desil's part.
* SiblingsInCrime: With Zeheart.
* SlasherSmile: Pretty much all the time during the second generation.
* SlouchOfVillainy: His posture is even worse when he grows up.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Believes he should have been the leader of the Earth Occupation Force instead of his brother when it's pretty obvious that his superiors (rightly) see him as nothing more than an attack dog.
* SociopathicSoldier
* TheSociopath: Has progressed from "budding psychopath" to the real deal.
* SoreLoser: He throws another hissyfit after [[spoiler:Flit effortlessly rebuffs all of his efforts to attack the Diva]].
* [[spoiler:TheresNoKillLikeOverkill: Deservedly lands on the receiving end of this in Episode 26. Judging from how Asemu completely obliterated every trace of Desil's mobile suit, it's safe to say Desil isn't going to crank a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Mu La Flaga]] anytime soon.]]
* UnskilledButStrong: Despite being an AcePilot, he overly relies on his X-Rounder powers, rather than his own personal skill. This got to the point where Flit could hold him back by doing nothing but relaying firing coordinates for the Diva, [[spoiler:and completely over-powered when he could no longer read Asemu's movements.]]
* VillainDecay
** Ventures into FridgeBrilliance. Within the span of 25 years, Flit has learned discipline and the art of making war, and has become an amazing pilot and skilled tactician. Desil, on the other hand, is no more disciplined as an adult than he was as a kid, and has spent time encapsulated -- which has done nothing for learning how to get better.


!! The Magicians Eight

The Magicians Eight is a group of elite Vagan MS pilots. They are also X-Rounders, hence why they pilot specially-configured Zedas mobile suits.
----
* AcePilot: All eight of them.
* AxCrazy: With the exception of Dole Frost, everyone else is...unhinged to say the least.
* BlindingBangs: Gren Raize has ''both'' his eyes covered. He brushes them back during piloting one time, but not at others.
* BloodKnight: Glynn and Mink are obsessed with battles and will stop at nothing to earn victories for Vagan.
* DarkChick: Mink Leiden.
* TheFightingNarcissist: Leo Louis likes carry around a handmirror. [[spoiler:And his last words are ''this isn't beautiful at all!'' ]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Dole Frost saves Zeheart from burning up in Earth's atmosphere]].
* HonorBeforeReason: They decide to sortie against Zeheart's orders to avenge their dead comrades. [[spoiler:It doesn't end well.]]
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:Mink does this in Episode 27 when she opened fire on Remi's repair unit and then pushed it away. [[KarmicDeath She gets her comeuppance not long afterwards.]]]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: In the end, all of them. Most of them are done in within a couple of episodes of their introduction.]]
* [[NeverMyFault Never Our Fault]]: They insist that it was Zeheart's tactics, and not their containment by Flit, that limited their effectiveness in the battle for Big Ring.
* NoKillLikeOverkill: [[spoiler:Mink]] gets fried by the Diva's [[WaveMotionGun Photon Blaster]].
* QuirkyMinibossSquad
* SuperpoweredMooks
* WorfEffect: They're supposed to be the best Vagan X-Rounder aces, yet most of them end up getting killed like chumps.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: The pilots of the Magicians Eight are a whole rainbow of hair colors, from orange to purple. [[http://archivethumb3.foolz.us/board/m/img/0075/67/1332665497184.jpg Mink's sky blue hair]] [[MemeticMutation even became a meme,]] believe it or not.


!!Medel Zant
-->Voiced by: Creator/MinoruInaba (JP)

A high-ranking Vagan soldier who acts as Zeheart's second-in-command. [[spoiler:When Zeheart goes into cold sleep again, he takes control of Vagan's forces on Earth and tries to assassinate the prime minister. He is ultimately killed in a duel by Asemu.]]
----
* AcePilot: He only gets into a mobile suit cockpit in Episode 28, but he ''tears shit up'' when he does.
* BondVillainStupidity: He scythes through all the Federation grunts with ease in his Zeydars, reaches the Prime Minister (with Flit) on the stage, and...[[spoiler:wastes time training a laser sight on Olfanoa when there are literally ''no obstacles whatsoever'' and certainly no range problem. Opening up right then would have taken out Flit too, which could only benefit Vagan, but Medel takes long enough for Flit [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech chew out Olfanoa]], allowing time for Asemu to arrive and engage him]].
* HappilyMarried: He has a wife back on Mars who he wants to return to before she dies, since she hasn't been going through the coldsleep process like he has.
* MultiMeleeMaster: His mobile suit, the Zeydars, has [[ChestBlaster exactly one ranged weapon]]. However, in close range, it can use its WolverineClaws and [[BewareMyStingerTail bladed tail]].
* NamesTheSame: [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Not the first enemy to be named Zant.]]
* NumberTwo: To Zeheart.
* UndyingLoyalty: Utterly devoted to the Vagan cause to the bitter end. [[spoiler:He even glimpses a vision of the Eden they seek as he dies.]]


!!Daz Roden
-->Voiced by: Tora Take (JP)

A Vagan soldier who acts as Zeheart's handler during the latter's infiltration mission into Tordia. He later serves Zeheart in the Earth Occupation Forces. [[spoiler:He ultimately dies when he overloads his mu-szell and crashes his Dorado L into the Gundam AGE-1 Flat.]]
----
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: Took out an opponent ''way'' out of his weight category through ''sheer bloody-minded determination''.
* EpicFail: His first on-screen outing in a mobile suit, in which Vargas and two of his similarly elderly drinking buddies fend him off with a hand-held rocket launcher and the garden sprinkler system.
* HostageSituation: Takes Romary hostage at the graduation to prevent Zeheart from being arrested by the military police.
* MauveShirt: Villainous example. Aside from being Zeheart's handler and advisor, he doesn't really do much, he's just given a name, a face, and a personality. [[spoiler:He ultimately dies in a kamikaze attack against the AGE-1.]]
* OlderSidekick: For Zeheart while he's undercover.
* [[spoiler:SelfDestructiveCharge: Tosses everything into a final charge at the AGE-1. He cripples it, effectively knocking Flit out of the battle.]]
* [[spoiler:SenselessSacrifice: Subverted. While his self destruction attack fails to kill Flit,it does manage to forced Flit to retreat.]]
* [[spoiler:TakingYouWithMe: Attempts this on Flit. He fails to kill him, but he does cripple the AGE-1.]]
* TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty: Whatever it takes to succeed. He's not above taking hostages, as he showed with Romary.
* UndyingLoyalty: To the Vagan cause. [[spoiler:He kamikazes into Flit for it.]]


!!Lord Ezelcant
-->Voiced by: Creator/RyuzaburoOtomo

The leader of the UE, and the instigator of the conflict. Geera Zoi implied that his ultimate goals are more than simple revenge against the Earth Sphere, though what exactly those are is unknown.

* BigBad
* BoomerangBigot: An interesting and unusually honest example. [[spoiler:He holds X-Rounders in contempt despite openly admitting to being one himself.]]
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler: In Generation 2, his plan to merge a fortress with a supply colony near Earth to act as a beach head had a plan B where the fortress is blown up and his forces are hidden within its debris that would fall to Earth for an eventual surprise attack. ]]
* LightIsNotGood
* TheManBehindTheMan
* [[spoiler:PsychicPowers: Is hinted at in Zeheart's flashback to be an ''extremely'' powerful X-Rounder.]]
* VisionaryVillain: Based on the limited info currently available [[spoiler: his goal seems to be to ensure peace by destroying the rotten Federation and creating a Vagan utopia.]]

-->Voided by: Creator/MasakazuMorita (JP)

Mukured and Lalaparly's son. He helps out at the Madorna Workshop. He's not as skilled with mobile suits as his father, but he finds other ways to make up for it.
----
* BeYourself: Can't match his father's skill as a mobile suit designer, and is totally fine with that. He's found other things to excel at instead.
* GadgeteerGenius: Managed to build a mobile suit simulator out of an old Genoace cockpit ''without his father's help''.

!Third Generation

[[folder:Earth Federal Forces]]

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/agekio_1496.jpg]]
!!Kio Asuno
-->Voiced by: KazutomiYamamoto (JP)[[spoiler:, Tomoyuki Higuchi (adult, JP)]]

The third protagonist, he is Flit's grandson and Asemu's son. He is 13 years old at the start of his story. Kio is a very kind-hearted person, possibly the most out of the three Gundam pilots. Due to Asemu's disappearance, he was raised by his mother and grandfather, which Flit took advantage of to train him as a mobile suit pilot. He has no idea of the realities of being a soldier.
----
* AcePilot
* [[spoiler:AttackDrone: His MidSeasonUpgrade, the AGE-FX is equipped with C-Funnels that function as remote-controlled blades.]]
* {{Badass}}: What can you say? It's in his blood.
** [[spoiler:BadassInDistress: In Episode 36, he gets captured by Zanald.]]
* [[spoiler:BewareTheNiceOnes: He's technically [[MessianicArchetype a true messiah]] given the fact that he wants to save everyone, whether it's Vagan or Human unlike [[DarkMessiah his grandpa]]. But push the wrong buttons, [[UnstoppableRage he will absolutely obliterate you]] as Zanald learns painfully during their 2nd fight.]]
* {{BFG}}: The AGE-3's [=SigMaxiss=] Rifle is essentially a scaled down version of the Diva's Photon Blaster Cannon.
** And then it gets a temporary upgrade that is essentially a miniature Photon Ring Ray.
** And then he gets the AGE-3 Fortress, which has ''four''. And can combine them to form a WaveMotionGun.
* ChildProdigy
* [[ChildSoldiers Child Soldier]]: A very clear example of why thirteen-year-olds should not be in Gundams. Kio is emotionally unprepared for the horrors of war and tends to follow his heart rather than his orders. [[spoiler:Which leads to his capture by Vagan when he tries to save his grandfather.]]
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: By the ''first'' episode, he jumps to save some kids without thinking beforehand on how to get back to a safe place. It bites him in the ass in Episode 36.
* CombiningMecha: The AGE-3 is the result of the Core Fighter and G-Cepter merging together.
* DisappearedDad: Asemu went missing after Kio was born.
* DemotedToExtra: In ''Memory of Eden''.
* FallingIntoTheCockpit: Subverted. While he said that he can't pilot the Core Fighter by himself after Flit left, he's good at piloting Gundam. See IKnowMortalKombat below.
* GenerationXerox: Physically, he's more or less a GenderFlipped version of his mother Romary.
* [[spoiler:GildedCage: Ezelcant allows him to freely roam around the Vagan colony without an escort, but he's still virtually a prisoner.]]
* TheHero: Of Part III.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:When Shanalua tells him that she'll be executed as a spy if she goes back to the ''Diva'' with him.]]
** And again [[spoiler:when he learns about Lu's terminal illness and her wish to have a normal life with the little time she has left.]]
* HonorBeforeReason: Absolutely refuses to activate [[spoiler:the [=AGE-FX=]'s [[SuperMode Burst Mode]], as it will render him unable to safely disable enemy mobile suits.]].
* [[spoiler:IdenticalStranger: He bears a striking resemblance to Ezelcant's dead son, Romy. Ezelcant seems to think he's a reincarnation]]
* IdiotHero: He can't seem to think of any tactic besides [[spoiler:begging the enemy pilot to try understanding]], no matter how many times it doesn't work.
* IKnowMortalKombat: The reason he can pilot the AGE-3 so well is because Flit gave him a MS Battle Simulator disguised as a video game when he was younger.
* ImprobableAge: 13, putting him on line with Uso from [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Victory Gundam]]...
* InformedAbility: His piloting skill (see UnskilledButStrong below for more). As soon as his wingmates, Gundam, or X-Rounding are confounded he loses, yet he complains that the AGE-3 "can't keep up" with him.
** The AGE-FX is a more effective crutch for his lack of skill, but he's still clearly fought to a standstill by the likes of [[spoiler:Fram]] and Girard, with only the FX's greater power and the Vagan playing catch with the IdiotBall rescuing him.
* KidHero
* LeeroyJenkins: Was turning into one of this based on Flit's teachings. Shanalua did her best to snap him out of it, but it didn't cure him completely.
** [[spoiler: When he thinks his Grandpa is trying to pull a [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificial]] [[YouShallNotPass play]], he ignores orders to run after all but docking in Diva and dives straight back into the situation Flit was trying to spare him from and gets caught. ]]
* [[spoiler:LoveHurts: He ends up growing fond of Lu, frequently leaving Ezelcant's palace to see her throughout his time in Vagan. Like many relationships in ''Gundam'', however, [[TearJerker it ends tragically.]]]]
* MementoMacGuffin: The AGE Device is all he has left of his father.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: From the AGE-3 to the AGE-FX in Episode 40.
* MilitaryBrat: Played with. Kio comes from family of soldiers, but his father is MIA and is not around when he is growing up. On the other hand, his grandfather is most likely the commander-in-chief during those times.
* NiceGuy
* OffWithHisHead: Kio's default finisher from Episode 40 onwards. [[spoiler:He does this to take out Vagan mobile suits without killing the pilots.]]
* [[spoiler:PermaShave: Kio is so far The Only Asuno Protagonist that has no facial hair compared to his father and grandfather]]
* PowerUpLetdown: The Daidal Bazooka in the last episode supercharges Kio's rifle to give him a chance against the final boss. He misses every single shot with it, against a target over four times his size, and it's destroyed within two minutes of screen time.
* PsychicPowers: Not only is he an X-Rounder, but so powerful that in his first episode he could detect the Vagan's attack on orbital base Big Ring. '''From Earth'''.
** To further put this into perspective: Kio's X-Rounder abilities are stronger than ''Zeheart's''.
* TechnicalPacifist: [[spoiler:After he finds out about the truth about life in Vagan.]]
* TooDumbToLive: Due to his [[TechnicalPacifist Technical Pacifism]], Kio deliberately dials back his attacks against enemies ''who wouldn't bat an eye at killing him if they had the chance''. This is often Lampshaded by his friends and squadmates, who tell him that sort of fighting is going to get him killed. It nearly does in Episode 46 when he refuses to use his Burst-FX mode against Zeheart and Fram, and is only saved by an DeusExMachina.
* TragicKeepsake: [[spoiler:Lu's diary of future memories.]]
* TraumaCongaLine: His entire time as a Gundam pilot has thus far been this. His WideEyedIdealist nature and his ChronicHeroSyndrome only make it ''worse.''
* {{Tykebomb}}: Flit trained him with an MS Simulation game when he was growing up.
* '''UselessProtagonist''': His constant pleas for understanding ''always'' fall on deaf ears, his refusal to kill enemy pilots enables them to go on and kill supporting characters, and he refuses to ever see the writing on the wall. In the end the ''only'' time Kio manages to convince someone to see things his way involves MindRape. There's a reason he's considered the worst Gundam protagonist of all time.
* UnskilledButStrong: Despite his early victories, Kio is still a woefully inexperienced pilot, and relies on his X-Rounder abilities and veteran wingmates to keep up with his opponents. This was made painfully clear in Episode 34, in which he couldn't lay a single hit on the Dark Hound and was more or less flailing around in space.
* [[spoiler:UnstoppableRage]]: [[spoiler:He goes apeshit & unleashes [[SuperMode FX Burst Mode]] on Zanald after he kills Deen, obliterating his mobile suit although he stops himself ''just'' before finishing him off.]]
* [[WhatTheHellDad What the Hell, Grandpa?]]: When he hears that Flit's goal is the total extermination of Vagan, Kio calls him out on it. [[spoiler:Asemu]] adds that it was what everyone has been wanting to say to him for some time now.
* WideEyedIdealist: From thinking that "we'll explain why you did it and it'll be okay" will absolve [[spoiler:Shanalua of espionage charges]] to persistently trying to talk down Vagan pilots that are blatantly [[BuffySpeak un-talk-downable]], Kio is this all over. He's been called out on it multiple times by Flit, Seric, and his exasperated opponents.

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ageflit1_7755.jpg]]
!!Flit Asuno

Asemu's father and Kio's grandfather, he has now retired and left the Earth Federal Forces. He still fights against the Vagan though, and is responsible for building the Gundam AGE-3 as well as training Kio in using it. He is 64 at the start of Kio's story.
----
* AcePilot
* AdventurerOutfit: Airman, [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE.]]
* AntiHero: Still a Type IV, but now almost bordering a Type V when it comes to the Vagans.
* [[spoiler:AxCrazy: If Episode 40's anything to go by...]]
* '''{{Badass}}''': Age ''still'' hasn't stopped him from being one when he needs to be, 50 years later.
** BadassBeard: Not just a mustache anymore.
** BadassGrandpa: The very first thing he does in his appearance in the third generation is ''save Kio from a Vagan mobile suit''. And then he ''jumps off of'' the Core Fighter while in flight to get to the G-Cepter.
** RetiredBadass: Retired from the military years ago. Still awesome [[spoiler:With the standard AGE 1 was able to hold off Zeaheart and Zanald in their newer more powerful suits long enough for Kio to try to buy time for Kio and the Diva to escape. His ability to wrest control of his upgraded AGE-1 and put down Girard is worth mentioning.]]
* BerserkButton: Do not tell Flit that not all Vagans are evil beings waiting to be wiped out.
* BrokenAce
* DarkMessiah: Still trying to be a savior by wiping out all of Vagan. [[spoiler:Kio eventually calls him out on it and tells him that he is no savior if that is his goal. He eventually lets go of his hatred and becomes a true savior by ending the war and saving both Vagan and Federation lives.]]
* DroppingTheBombshell: He only hesitated for a second or two before telling Kio who the pilot of the Dark Hound was.
* DudeWheresMyRespect: He's kicked a lot of Vagan ass and saved the Federation from certain doom for over 50 years. He's even been Commander-in-Chief. However, almost everyone treats him like crap because he's old and retired (and responsible for a military coup), and only Algreus is willing to listen to any ideas he has. [[spoiler:He eventually gets it -- after his death, the AGE-1 is a museum exhibit, and a statue of him has been erected.]]
* [[spoiler:EpiphanyTherapy: Caused by X-Rounder resonance with Kio. Flit glimpses a vision showing all the people he lost through his life -- Yurin, Bruzar, Woolf, Grodek, Boyage, and Marina -- which convinces him to let his hatred go.]]
* EvilMentor: It's not difficult to see him as one to Kio at this point.
* {{Expy}}: One could compare his third generation appearance to [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Bask Om]], with the goggles, gloves, and all. His [[ShellShockedVeteran personality]] [[GeneralRipper isn't]] [[JerkAss too far]] [[FinalSolution off either]].
** And to [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Dr. J]] as well, seeing as he developed the Gundam.
* FallenHero
* FinalSolution: Seeks to exterminate the Vagan down to the last man, woman, and child.
* GeneralRipper: He's gotten even worse on this count, to the point where the destruction of Vagan and the extermination of its people is all he lives for now. Shanalua's pretty freaked out by what he's trying to mould Kio into.
* GogglesDoNothing
* [[DadTheVeteran Grandpa the Veteran]]
* [[PapaWolf Grandpa Wolf]]
* GrumpyOldMan: Downplayed.
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:It's pretty clear that Kio calling him out had an effect on him. After that confrontation, he begins to reflect on what drove him down this road and what he's been doing about it. The kicker in this whole thing was when Kio told Flit that he wasn't acting like any kind of savior. He doesn't let it sway him, though -- but he eventually has one that ''does''.]]
* IHaveNoSon: Disowns Asemu after [[spoiler:finding out he's the leader of Bisidian, although he doesn't hold to it after everyone tells him that he should just be happy his son isn't ''dead''.]]
* ILetGwenStacyDie: Yurin L'Ciel retains this status.
* ItsAllAboutMe: During his MotiveRant to Kio, he talks about how the Vagan have "taken so much from us". Its pretty clear, however, that by "us" he means himself, and by "so much" he means Yurin.
* [[spoiler:KarmaHoudini: Arguably. He repents of his genocidal wishes before the end, but the extent to which he's idolized by the public afterwards seems excessive.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: Again, when it comes to his mortal enemy, Vagan, innocent or not.
* LivingLegend: Much more than Generation 2.
* NotSoDifferent: Episode 37 reveals that basically Flit is this to [[spoiler:all of Vagans, who like him suffered loss and unjust during their childhoods causing them to live only in hatred.]]
* TheObiWan: To Natora.
* ThePatriarch: Of the Asuno family.
* PetTheDog: [[spoiler: As soon as he realizes Kio is in danger of capture he rushes out to save his grandson, including losing all sense of his [[ThePerfectionist normal cool demeanor]]. ]]
* RetiredMonster: Was one at the start of the third generation, before he was pulled out of retirement. Flit may have some regrets, but his plans for a FinalSolution to the Vagan problem and his coup d'etat are not among them.
* ShellShockedVeteran
* [[StillGotIt STILL Still Got It]]: See BadassGrandpa. The years, they...have not changed Flit too much at all.
* [[spoiler:VillainProtagonist: Becomes very clear in Episode 40, where he refuses to listen to anyone who say the Vagans shouldn't all be killed.]]
* [[WhatTheHellDad What the Hell, Grandpa?]]: He didn't attend his grandson's birth. Although he did spend quality time with him later...by training him in mobile suit simulators, behind the backs of his wife and his daughter-in-law in order to allow Kio to inherit the Gundam.
** [[http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3cwjvfukH1r0nj3wo1_500.jpg Exhibit A]].
** [[spoiler: After learning that Asemu is Captain Ash of the Bisidian, he tells Kio to forget it happened and pretend that his father is still dead. Kio [[WhatTheHellHero immediately refuses]].]]
* WhatTheHellHero: [[spoiler:After Kio's kidnapping, Flit orders the Diva to turn 180° -- exposing their flank to Zeheart's ship in the process -- to destroy Zanald's ship before Zanald reaches it with the Gundam. They don't listen, and both Abis and Yunoa tell him to calm the hell down.]]

!!Wendy Hearts
--> Voiced by Creator/MariyaIse

A friend of Kio's from childhood. She follows him when he decides to help some stranded orphans and ends up on the ''Diva'' when it's de-mothballed.
----
* EveryoneLovesBlondes
* {{Expy}}: The protagonist's childhood friend? Is assigned to take care of a trio of kids who may or may not be orphans? Wendy is the third generation's equivalent of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Fraw Bow]].
* FlatCharacter: She gets far less screentime than Emily and Romary. Probably has a crush on Kio?
** [[spoiler: Her role is somewhat expanded in the -UNKNOWN SOLDIERS- side story. She is now providing support by controlling Gundam AGE-FX A-Funnel Equipment Type's eponymous weapons and working on improving their AI system. ]]

!!Captain Natola Einus
-->Voiced by: Creator/RinaSato (JP)

Newly promoted Captain of the Diva, she is woefully inexperienced with command of a ship and the realities of war, and unhappily aware of it.
----
* ApologizesALot
* ButIReadABookAboutIt: She spends much of her free time in intense reading so that she can be a competent captain.
* ButtMonkey
* CharacterDevelopment: In Episode 33, she showed signs that she was beginning to come into her own. [[spoiler:By the final episode, she has no problem with borrowing a pirate ship, though they didn't object too strenuously.]]
* FieryRedhead: [[InvertedTrope Inversion.]] She's closer to an ExtremeDoormat than anything else.
* KickedUpstairs: Her commander had severe doubts about her competence (suspecting that she only got as far as she did through family connections), and gives her the Diva captaincy to get her out of his hair.
* [[EnsignNewbie Lieutenant Commander Newbie]]: She has about fifteen minutes between her promotion and having to take command.
* {{Nepotism}}: Subverted. She apparently got her initial rank of lieutenant from family connections, but then her promotion to Captain of the Diva was mostly because they wanted her out of the way.
* NewMeat: Abis spots two telltale signs of her inexperience the first time he sets eyes on her.
* NiceGirl: She's very polite, is quite aware that she's unready to be a captain, takes the initiative to help evacuate a group of civilians, and is shown helping to console young evacuees as early as her second appearance.
* PointyHairedBoss: It's clear that she was promoted to Captain way before she was ready for the position.
* ReassignedToAntarctica: The Diva was only sent out at Flit's insistence, and so the field commander threw [[RagtagBandOfMisfits all the problem people he had]] onto the crew, and assigned them a complete newbie of a Captain.
* SignificantGreenEyedRedhead
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Natola or Netora?
** Let's not start on her surname.
* [[UnfortunateName Unfortunate]] PunnyName: Her first name is reminiscent of the infamous 'netoare genre', whilst her surname...well, it's pronounced exactly the way you'd hope it wouldn't be.


!!Seric Abis
-->Voiced by: Creator/EijiTakemoto (JP)
[[quoteright:327:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/seric_abis_8562_4958.jpg]]

TheLeader of the ''Diva's'' mobile suit squad. Seric is good-natured, perceptive, and takes a great deal of interest in the well-being of his shipmates. He pilots a Clanche Custom.
----
* AceCustom
* {{Badass}}: Obviously he's a good mobile suit pilot, but what ''really'' impressed a lot of fans is how he dealt with the situation at Luna Base (see GuileHero below).
* BigBrotherMentor: He acts like this to the crew in general, including the captain and even Flit. He's almost like [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Lockon Stratos]] without the revenge issues.
* CharClone: Even without being blonde, mind you, he qualifies as Type II-Quattro (see details at {{Expy}} below).
* CoolShades
* {{Expy}}: A more {{Badass}} Largan Drace.
** He's also sometimes compared to Max Jenius from ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross''.
** Albeit not blonde, he's pretty much ''AGE's'' answer to [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Quattro Bajeena]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Mu La Flaga]]. [[spoiler: He even [[HeroicSacrifice dies in the line of combat]] the same way as the latter.]]
* GuileHero: During the battle of Luna Base, it's clear that the Federation lines are going to crumble and Algreus is ready to order wholesale destruction of the facility. Seric responds by [[spoiler:infiltrating the base, taking over a communication facility, and telling the Vagan officers what's about to happen. They quickly negotiate a surrender]].
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: He tells Natora to fire the photon blaster, even though his disabled Clanche Custom is trapped in its path]].
* HypercompetentSidekick: That bit in GuileHero? It happened when three Gundams finally united, and they were too busy with fighting for their own lives.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: After a tough fight with Godom, his mobile suit crashes into a Vagan warship and can't move out of the photon blaster's firing zone]].
* NiceGuy: He even makes a point of addressing the older and more experienced Obright as "Mr. Obright[[note]]Obright-san[[/note]]" even though Seric is ''his'' superior officer.
* RedBaron: Holmes of the Battlefield.
* SherlockScan: Demonstrating the reason for his nickname, he manages to deduce Einus' inexperience in their very first meeting.
* SupportingLeader
* TransformingMecha

!!Obright Lorain
[[quoteright:285:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Olbright-Gen3_1520.jpg]]
A member of the mobile suit team assigned to the Diva. Pilots the Genoace O-Custom instead of a Clanche.
----
* AceCustom: The Genoace O-Custom.
* BadassNormal
* BeardOfSorrow: It looks just like Grodek's.
* CallBack: He's taken to cleaning the mobile suit bay like Remi used to, and gives Kio the same reason she gave him when asked why.
* DemotedToExtra: He was a secondary character in G2, but in Kio's time he only has two or three scenes outside of battle.
* [[spoiler:DyingMomentOfAwesome: Was mortally wounded in his fight with Fram. Still took her out anyway.]]
* [[spoiler:FamousLastWords: "Remi...I am finally going to see you again."]] [[TearJerker Sniff]].
* [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
* OlderSidekick
* TheStoic: Even more so than in Asemu's arc. He has exactly one line in Episode 30. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], though--[[LoveHurts losing your fiancée will do that to you]].
** NotSoStoic: He smiles when he tells Kio that the crew is like family to him.
* TookALevelInBadass


!!Frederick Algreus
Flit's former NumberTwo. Is now an admiral and in charge of the Federation forces stationed on Earth.
----
* BadassMustache
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: When Flit requests the Diva's presence, Algreus doesn't even ''hesitate'' to give him permission.
* UndyingLoyalty: Still sees Flit as his commander, even after Flit has retired.


!!Shanalua Mullen
[[quoteright:296:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Shanalua_9210.jpg]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/RomiPark

A member of the Diva's mobile suit team. She takes over as Kio's combat instructor once the Diva gets moving.
----
* CoolBigSis: To Kio, even if she is a bit stern.
* {{Expy}}: To [[spoiler:[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Miharu Ratokie]]]], due to their motivations for [[spoiler:spying on the Federation]].
* TheHeart: Though she's a pilot, she hates killing. Because even the enemy has a family. She also tries to look out for Kio.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice: Gave her life to protect Kio.]]
* HeyItsThatVoice: [[Anime/TurnAGundam Loran Cehack]] still hates killing the enemy.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
* [[spoiler:TheMole: She's working for Vegan, but only because [[HealthcareMotivation they're paying her enough to cover her sister's medical treatment]].]]
* PromotionToParent: For her much-younger sister.
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEqualsDeath]]
* SexyMentor: As genuinely as she wants to comfort Kio, the manner in which she did it is ''very'' suggestive.
* ShellShockedVeteran: Harbours no illusions about the glory of battle. Being a war orphan didn't help.
* TransformingMecha
* [[spoiler:WeHardlyKnewYe: Named in one episode, pulls out the FatalFamilyPhoto in the second, and dies in the third.]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Administers a fair few to Kio--she's none too happy about some of the poison his grandfather's been feeding him.


!!Yunoa Asuno
-->Voiced by: Creator/AyaEndo

Flit's daughter, Asemu's sister, and Kio's aunt. She serves as the chief medical officer aboard the Diva.
----
* [[CoolUncle Cool Aunt]]: She gives Kio a listening ear and a helpful perspective about things like the war [[spoiler:and Asemu's reappearance]], and gives Wendy something useful to do while she's on the ''Diva''.
* CloserToEarth: She's the most cool-headed Asuno, giving Kio steady advice and calming down her father when he starts yelling at everyone [[spoiler:when Kio is captured by Vagan]].
* EveryoneLovesBlondes

* HospitalHottie
* TheMedic
* TheMentor: To Wendy.
* MilitaryBrat

!!Wootbit Gunhale
--> Voiced by: Shintaro Ohata

Arisa's son and Dique's grandson. He's Rody's assistant, and doesn't take too kindly to Kio...at first, anyway.
----
* BigEater
* DemotedToExtra: Initially, he seems like he's going to be a source of conflict for Kio, or at least a friend after he rapidly changes his opinion. Turns out to get even less screentime than his grandfather did.
* GenerationXerox: He's basically a blond version of his grandfather with more attitude.
* HeroicBastard: Implied since he's using his mother's maiden name.
* HeroWorshipper: Of Rody, and the Madorna clan as a whole.
* {{Jerkass}}: To Kio, at least at first. He thought Kio was a SpoiledBrat...then he actually sat in the cockpit of the Gundam during a battle. After that, [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold he loosened up.]]
* MoreExpendableThanYou: Refuses to have Madorna pilot the G-Hopper into the battlefield because he believes Madorna to be more valuable to the ''Diva'' crew, instead volunteering himself to do it.
* UnfortunateNames: [[InherentlyFunnyWords Wootbit. Wootbit. Wootbit.]]
* WarIsHell: Learned this when he watched Kio pilot the Gundam from the G-Hopper's seat.

[[folder:Vagan]]
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/agezel_140.jpg]]
!!Lord Fezarl Ezelcant
The leader of Vagan. He began the war in AG 108 to return the descendents of Mars' abandoned colonists to Earth, viewing it as a paradise. He's also an incredibly powerful X-Rounder.
----
* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler:Despite holding Kio as his prisoner, he treats him very well and encourages him to leave the palace to explore Vagan. Ezelcant even allows Kio to obtain medicine for Lu in exchange for access to the AGE system's protocols when he could have easily done so without Kio's say in the matter. [[HappilyMarried On top of that, he is a devoted husband to Dorene.]]]]
** [[spoiler:[[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown Once Kio escaped though...]]]]
* AnimeHair: It's hard to concentrate on his speech when you're staring at that corkscrew thing on top of his head....
** And at least one fanartist has drawn him opening a bottle of wine with it.
* AristocratsAreEvil: Invoked by his title.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Oh, does it '''EVER'''.
* [[spoiler:AxCrazy]]
* BigBad
* BlatantLies: His claim that people the Vagan have attacked were always given a chance to survive is an unintentional case, since there have been several cases where that's not true at all.
* DarkMessiah
* [[spoiler:DespairEventHorizon: A flashback shows him and Dorene being around his son during his final moments. Not long after Romy's death, Ezelcant develops a major SocialDarwinist attitude and declares war.]]
* [[spoiler:DisproportionateRetribution: Showing anger at the Federation for doing nothing to save his son and others affected by the Mars Ray illness is totally justifiable. Starting a war with SocialDarwinist motivations on the other hand...]]
* [[spoiler:EvilutionaryBiologist: Unfortunately for him, his understanding of the actual science is not good. The extreme scenarios he creates are more likely to ''create'' people who are aggressive and warlike, since they'll be more driven to survive and fight off their attackers.]]
* GraspTheSun: [[spoiler:In his last moments, he reaches out for a hallucination of Earth]].
* HappilyMarried: With his wife Dorene.
* TheHeavy: Seems to be stepping into this role.
* HumanPopsicle: He appears largely the same now as he did in G1 because he's been using cold sleep. [[spoiler:Not to make sure he can direct the Vagan forces for the long duration of the war, but to try and outrun the Mars Rays disease.]]
* [[spoiler:InsaneAdmiral: Supreme Commander of the Vagan forces, spiritual leader of their exodus home, and raving madman who does not understand how his own SocialDarwinist philosophy works.]]
* [[spoiler:KarmaHoudini: Although he dies of his disease in the last episode, he is never really brought to account for his actions.]]
* LargeHam: [[spoiler:Especially so during his fight against the AGE-3.]]
* LightIsNotGood
* MoralityPet: [[spoiler: Kio. Ezelcant really sees him as a reincarnation of his dead son and is unable to kill him.]]
* PsychicPowers: Most X-Rounders have been shown only to have predictive powers in battle and the ability to recognize people they're fighting, but Ezelcant can literally share his vision of Eden with his followers.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Delivers one to the Federation in Episode 29.
* [[spoiler:RedemptionEqualsDeath: He was dying anyway, but at least Kio talked him out of his SocialDarwinist ideas before he did.]]
* [[spoiler:SocialDarwinist: He wants to create an Eden populated by humans who don't feel hate or seek out conflict, so he prolongs the war to try and weed out warlike, aggressive people. He also stages accidents in Vagan settlements for this same purpose.]]
* UglyGuyHotWife
* UnfortunateNames: The last four letters of his surname [[CountryMatters can be pronounced in the wrong way.]]
* VisionaryVillain: He wants to end warfare. As with most Gundam villains with this goal, he's trying to do it by... starting a huge war.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler: Subverted. His people see him as this, because he tells them that the war on the Federation is for the sake of taking them away from their horrible existence in the abandoned Mars colonies. In actuality, he is a SocialDarwinist who has destroyed their colonies too.]]
* [[spoiler:YourDaysAreNumbered: He suffers from the disease that Mars Rays cause. As of Episode 37, his doctors say he has six months to live.]]
** The preview for the final episode shows [[spoiler: him on his deathbed.]]

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ageze_3712.jpg]]
!!Zeheart Galette
A commander in the Vagan forces who reports directly to Ezelcant. He was in cold sleep for an amount of time between the second and third generation and pilots another custom red suit in the attack on Kio's city. Though he's now being challenged by other Vagan commanders, his sole focus is still the fulfillment of Project Eden.
----
* AceCustom: His red Wrozzo.
* AcePilot
* ActorAllusion: Creator/HiroshiKamiya voices another character in a {{Gundam}} series that does not age.
* AttackDrone: Is capable of using bits in the Ghirarga that function similar to [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 GN Fangs]].
* AuthorityEqualsAssKicking: He is Ezelcant's NumberTwo. [[spoiler: And eventually the DragonAscendant.]]
* BladeOnAStick: The Ghirarga's main weapon. It can be split into [[DualWielding two]] [[SinisterScythe scythes]].
* CharClone: Even moreso than in Part II. [[spoiler: He increasingly gains traits similar to [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack CCA-era]] Char after Ezelcant deems him his successor.]]
* TheDragon: Is still this to Lord Ezelcant.
** [[spoiler: DragonAscendant: In Episode 44, Ezelcant realizes he is finally too ill to go on, and hands Zeheart the leadership of Vagan, Project Eden, and the Gundam Legilis.]]
* [[spoiler:DroppedABridgeOnHim]]: Who saw ''that'' coming?
* [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile]]
* HiddenDepths: At least to Fram Nara when he names all the soldiers who died in the operation.
** [[spoiler:His final talk with Asemu fleshes out his character ''tremendously''.]]
* HumanPopsicle: Between shows.
* [[spoiler:IJustWantToBeNormal: At the end, he admits to Asemu that his heart's desire was to fall in love, get married, and raise a family. To that end, he was jealous of Asemu.]]
* IdiotBall: Apparently, he was well aware [[spoiler:that something very bad could happen with Girard Spriggan if she was pushed too far. Okay, he didn't realize her breakdown would be as spectacular as it was, but after the whole disaster with Desil one would think that he would be more careful with a unstable X-Rounder motivated purely by his/her own vendetta piloting a machine that allows them to control X-Transmitter equipment such as bits, funnels and other X-Rounder suits]].
* [[spoiler:JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: For someone who makes a point of [[TheDeadHaveNames remembering his fallen subordinates]] and fighting for all Vagans to see "Eden", he is easily convinced by Ezelcant's true plan. He's willing to risk the horrific consequences of using the full EXA-DB database by the next episode.]]
** [[spoiler:''Memory of Eden'' fleshes this out further. Zeheart didn't want his subordinates' sacrifices to be in vain, and as they died for the vision of Eden that Zeheart believed Ezelcant saw, so he continued fighting for Eden even after he new the truth about Ezelcant's plans.]]
* IveComeTooFar: [[spoiler:He gave into the plan and fought because so many of his men died that he felt like he could never go back]]
* KickTheDog: Despite his sympathetic nature in Generation 2, he starts this time by attacking a square of celebrating civilians and ignoring the city's military targets under Ezelcant's orders.
** [[spoiler:Which makes a little more sense after TheReveal of Ezelcant's true goal.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Dies in Gundam Legilis's explosion, after Asemu wrecked it.]]
* LightIsNotGood: [[spoiler: Mainly after Lord Ezelcant revealed his plan to him he wants Zeheart to become a light that will be illuminating humanities future]]
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: Still pilots a red mobile suit, even when it's not a unique model.
* MaskPower: Still needs it twenty-five years later. Just how strong ''are'' his X-Rounder powers, anyway?
** [[spoiler: He no longer needs it after inheriting the Gundam Legilis.]]
* MidSeasonUpgrade: Goes from the Ghirarga to [[spoiler:Gundam Legilis]].
* [[spoiler:MyGodWhatHaveIDone: He suffers a massive one after Fram gets killed, only for the three Gundams to escape unscathed. The visions of his fallen comrades calling him a failure do NOT help.]]
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: [[spoiler: He stays by Ezelcant's side even after hearing his true plans. He thinks it is crazy at first, but when Ezelcant asks him to take over, he is willing to do so.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: Thanks to cold sleep, he doesn't look a day past 19, despite actually being 41.
* PsychicPowers: Not even the Ghirarga can keep up with his X-Rounder abilities.
* TheRival: By this point, he's the only character who went toe-to-toe with the three protagonists.
* [[spoiler:SanitySlippage: Starts with JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope above. It comes to a head in Episode 48, when he envisions the people who gave their lives for the war under his command, and then launches in the Legilis to attempt a RoaringRampageOfRevenge after Fram's SenselessSacrifice.]]
** [[spoiler:In fact, he is literally hallucinating during his fight with Asemu, which is probably why he goes down so quickly. Hard to focus on what's going on in the viewscreen when there's a bunch of dead subordinates in the way.]]
*** Before all that, Fram checks on him, and he nearly attacks her, starting his [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown]] in ''Memory of Eden''.
* [[SlouchOfVillainy Slouch Of Anti-Villainy]]: When he's sitting around in the command center.
* [[spoiler:SurvivorGuilt: His visions of his fallen comrades indicate this. Spelled out explicitly by Desil in ''Memory of Eden'', when he asks Zeheart how it feels to outlive his subordinates.]]
* TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler: Subverted.]]
* UndyingLoyalty: To Ezelcant.
* [[spoiler:VillainousBreakdown: A tragic case as Zeheart, who was once full of noble ideas and personal integrity, is reduced in the end to a bitter, hateful, ranting maniac, [[{{Irony}} not unlike his late brother Desil.]]]]
* [[spoiler:WellIntentionedExtremist]]: [[spoiler:He serves Ezelcant with UndyingLoyalty and no thought for his own glory, because he wants more than anything to return the Vagan to Earth. But he embraces this trope even more tightly when he learns the truth and still accepts Ezelcant's offer to take his place]].

!!The Phantom Three
A group of three Vagan pilots who stationed themselves in the desert. They attacked from beneath the sand, and had already sunk three Federation battleships before they met the Diva. Led by Godom Dynam.
----
* [[spoiler:AxCrazy: Godom becomes this after Gratt and Deymon's death.]]
* AttackPatternAlpha: The Delta Attack.
* BackForTheFinale: Godom doesn't appear at all after the battle with Bisidian, but returns in Episode 45, vowing more revenge.
* DueToTheDead: Godom and Gratt pay respect to the fallen Deymon at the end of Episode 31, and vow revenge.
* EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks: Their mobile suits have shark-like dorsal fins, which stick above the sand's surface while they're moving beneath the sand.
* {{Expy}}: To the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Black Tri-Stars]]. They even have their own version of the Jet Stream Attack.
* {{Gonk}}: Gratt. Those ''teeth''.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Godom has a scar that begins above his right eye and runs down below his left eye.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:All three of them.]]
* MauveShirt: They're [[StarterVillain Starter Villains]] for Kio and the ''Diva'', harry him again in space, and come BackForTheFinale but don't hold any plot significance apart from attacking the ship.
* SacrificialLamb: Deymon. Kio kills him in the same episode he appears.
* SandIsWater: Their mobile suits are capable of moving through the sand like sharks through water.

!!Zanald Beihart
-->Voiced by: Creator/HisaoEgawa (JP)
[[quoteright:337:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Zanald_Beihart_3185.png]]

Another of Vagan's commanders, Zanald is an overweight man who closely resembles a gorilla. Like Zeheart, he reports directly to Ezelcant. Unlike Zeheart, however, he's derisive of his peers, and out only to advance his own career. Pilot of the Zamdrag, which looks an awful lot like a monkey.
----
* AcePilot: Despite his appearance and attitude, Zanald is a very competent pilot.
* AmbitionIsEvil
* AnimeHair: Some of the weirdest in the series, assuming it's not a helmet. It looks like a swan's set up roost on his skull.
* AnimalMotifs: An ape, from his gorilla mask to his orangutang arms and suit. And that's without getting into his MS which resembles an enormous monkey, and has prehensile toes and a tail.
* BadBoss: [[spoiler:He kills Deen just to get to the Gundam a little faster and calls him a piece of junk when Kio asks why]].
* BlatantLies: When he tells Zeheart that [[spoiler:attacking him was an accident. He doesn't even bother not to smirk, and then says it was Zeheart's own fault and he's not a worthy successor to Ezelcant]].
* TheBusCameBack: He seems to vanish during the three-month timeskip, but returns in Episode 45.
* BeardOfEvil: Not unlike [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Lordgenome's]], in fact.
* BewareMyStingerTail: In the Zamdrag.
* [[spoiler:BigBadWannabe]]
* TheBrute: Seems to have taken the position following Desil's death in Generation 2. Of course he wants to be TheDragon, so he's not real happy about this.
* CoolMask: That looks like a gorilla's face.
* EyepatchOfPower
* FatBastard: Zanald is noticably portly, and deeply unpleasant.
* {{Foil}}: His [[GloryHound attitude]], [[FatBastard appearance]], and [[TheStarscream sense of loyalty]] make him a pretty fair one for Zeheart.
* GloryHound: Is obsessed with destroying the Gundam before Zeheart can. [[spoiler:And he's mutinously unhappy about being told that ''Zeheart'' will be Ezelcant's successor]].
* HiddenDepths: At one point he comments on the irony of war being inherently foolish, yet inspiring the rapid advancement of science and technology.
* {{Jerkass}}: Strikingly so compared to the other Vagan soldiers we meet in the Kio arc, starting when he ''pushed'' the Ghirarga at the AGE-1 [[spoiler:after capturing Kio]]. He gets worse from there.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
* KillerGorilla: Invoked by his animal motif.
* LargeAndInCharge: Both him and his MS.
* [[spoiler:LaserGuidedKarma / KarmicDeath: Hope you like getting your ass blasted to oblivion by friendly fire, you fat son-of-a-bitch.]]
* MaskOfPower: It's hard to figure out where the mask ends and his hair begins.
* [[spoiler:NiceJobFixingItVillain: If he had taken two seconds to go ''around'' Deen's disabled MS, Kio would never have activated Burst Mode.]]
* PsychicPowers: Though not as great as Zeheart's.
* {{Robeast}}: The Zamdrag sports this look.
* SmugSnake
* [[spoiler:TheStarscream: After earlier comments questioning Ezelcant, Zanald takes the plunge and attacks Zeheart when told that he will be Zeheart's NumberTwo]].
* StoutStrength: Invoked by his mobile suit's appearance and his own. Zanald may be on the heavy side, but he can hold his own in a fight.
* WeHaveReserves
** [[spoiler:Ironically, he himself falls victim to this mentality when his flagship is caught in La Gramis's second shot.]]

!!Fram Nara
-->Voiced by: MinakoKotobuki

A soldier under Zeheart's command. She transferred from Second Moon to Zeheart's unit under Zanald's orders to participate in Project Eden. While she's at it, she evaluates Zeheart for personal reasons, as her older brother, [[spoiler:Dole Frost]], died while under his command.
----
* AcePilot: Although she claims to be inexperienced, she gives a good showing when she pilots the Fawn Farsia.
* AttackDrone: The Fawn Farsia is equipped with flower-shaped bits, like its predecessor.
* BadassAdorable: She might not be an experienced pilot, but her X-Rounder powers and her unwillingness to back down allow her to hold off the AGE-FX.
* DarkChick
* DefrostingIceQueen: She was a rather cold, no-nonsense strategist at the beginning of the Third Generation. Over time, she realizes that Zeheart deeply cares for his soldiers and gradually warms up. [[spoiler:By Episode 41, Fram admires Zeheart for who he is and becomes deeply concerned when her premonition shows him getting shot down.]]
* {{Expy}}: Her clothes, hair and attitude initially resemble Haman in her ''Char's Deleted Affair'' incarnation.
* [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile]]
* HimeCut
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: In the penultimate episode, in a very tragic manner. See SenselessSacrifice below.]]
* [[spoiler:LastKiss: In ''Memory of Eden'', she kisses Zeheart in their mutual vision just before she dies.]]
* [[spoiler:LettingHerHairDown: Similar to Yurin, although in a vision with Zeheart before her own death.]]
* TheMole: She originally was sent by Zanald to keep eye on Zeheart.
* [[YouKilledMyFather My Brother Died Because Of You]]: She's decided that she'll kill Zeheart as retribution, if it turns out that he's not worthy her brother's sacrifice. [[spoiler:After seeing Zeheart's dedication and care towards his subordinates, she concludes that he is more than worthy of her brother's sacrifice and drops all plans of killing him.]]
* [[spoiler:MoralityPet: During the Battle of La Gramis, Zeheart makes it CLEAR that she is this to him in ''Memory of Eden''.]]
* OlderThanSheLooks: When she's standing next to both Zeheart and Girard, she looks like a kid.
* RapunzelHair
* [[RewardedAsATraitorDeserves Rewarded As A Coward Deserves]]: Doles this out to [[spoiler:the Luna Base commander, who shot his own soldiers trying to escape]].
* [[spoiler:SenselessSacrifice: In Episode 48, Fram throws herself willingly into Zeheart's plan. [[SuicideMission Even though she knows it will get her killed,]] she believes that if the plan succeeds, Zeheart will go back to being a kind leader again. The plan fails, and whats worse, Zeheart loses it and dies not long afterwards.]]
* TheStrategist: She's sent to be this as an aide to Zeheart, and she knows what she's doing.
* SubordinateExcuse: More explicit in the SpecialEdition.
* [[spoiler:WhenSheSmiles]]
** [[spoiler: GoOutWithASmile]]
* WomanInBlack

* AceCustom: A dark green Ghirarga.

* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Killed by Obright in Episode 48.]]
* LightIsNotGood: His last name is Light. Then again, he's never shown to do anything particularly evil, unlike some Vagans.

* UndyingLoyalty: To Zeheart.

!!Deen Anon
-->Voiced by: Creator/TetsuyaKakihara

A civilian from Vagan who stopped a pickpocket from taking Kio's money and ID. When not outside, he tends to his terminally-ill younger sister Lu. [[spoiler:He's also an X-Rounder.]]
----
* BigBrotherInstinct: He's '''very''' protective of his sister, to the point of trying to prevent Kio from seeing her again so that she wouldn't be scared about dying. [[spoiler:He changes his mind after he finds out that Kio brought his sister medicine. Nonetheless, he still closely supervises his sister as she goes out with Kio.]]
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn: With no one left to take care of in his family, he joins Vagan's military in Episode 39.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Killed by Zanald in Episode 47.]]
* NiceGuy: He stops the pickpocket and tends to Kio's wounds. He even allows Kio to have dinner with him and his sister.

!!Lu Anon
-->Voiced by: Creator/KanaeIto

A civilian from Vagan and Deen's younger sister. [[LoveAtFirstSight She's immediately attracted to Kio when he gets brought over to her house.]] Tragically, however, she has not seen the outside world [[YourDaysAreNumbered since she became terminally ill.]]
----
* BigOlEyebrows
* ConstantlyCurious: She wants to know everything about Kio's life, such as school and sports. Justified because [[TearJerker her impoverished state and her illness prevent her from ever experiencing these luxuries.]]
* {{Expy}}: She has talent in illustration not unlike [[Anime/AfterWarGundamX Tiffa Adill]].
* [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile]]
* IllGirl: See YourDaysAreNumbered below.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal]]
* LoveAtFirstSight: You could clearly tell that Wendy's going to have competition the moment Lu glanced at Kio.
* NiceGirl
* [[spoiler:TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth]]
* [[spoiler:WeHardlyKnewYe: She's introduced in Episode 37 and dies in 38, although 38 seems to TimeSkip through numerous days (as heard by Ezelcant asking his wife how often Kio has been visiting her house.)]]
* YourDaysAreNumbered: Her disease from exposure to Mars Rays is terminal. As of Episode 37, she has no more than 3 months to live without treatment. [[spoiler:She dies in Episode 38.]]

!!Girard Spriggan [[spoiler:formerly Reina Spriggan]]
-->Voiced by: Creator/RyokaYuzuki

An Earth Federation AcePilot who was a test pilot for new mobile suits and mobile suit systems. [[FaceHeelTurn She defected to Vagan]] and apparently helped the Luna Base's takeover [[spoiler: after a test for an X-Rounder flight system went badly wrong. Her lover Girard died colliding with an asteroid and she barely escaped alive. She later found that ground control deliberately pushed the system beyond safety limits, and that the Federation decided to cover it up by blaming Girard. She was later killed by Flit Asuno.]]
----
* AceCustom: She pilots the Thielva, a gold G-Bouncer that has been heavily-modified to be compatible with X-Rounder pilots.
* AcePilot: Being a test pilot is a profession for the most daring and skilled.
* [[spoiler:AxCrazy: After her X-Rounder abilities went wild in Episode 43, she pretty much become this.]]
* BrokenBird: Just listen to what she has to say about dreams.
* CastingGag:[[spoiler: Her [[Creator/RyokaYuzuki VA]] voiced [[Anime/QueensBlade Cattleya]], who is the friend of the main heroine of that series, named ''[[NamesTheSame Leina]]'' [[SpellMyNameWithAnS (Except with an alternative spelling]]]].
** [[spoiler:Not to mention, unlike Cattleya, she wants to avenge her loved one rather than rescue him.]]
* DarkActionGirl
* {{Expy}}: She sure looks like [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Hilling Care]] although in her flashback, she had Anew Returner's exact hairstyle.
* FaceHeelTurn: She lets the Vagans take over the Luna Base and not long afterwards pilots alongside them [[spoiler:for what they did to her and her lover Girard, and the cover-up]].
* [[spoiler:KickedUpstairs: The Federation gave her two promotions after the "accident," along with a warning to keep her mouth shut.]]
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Just before she has a chance to kill Kio, Flit regains control of his blaster to take out Girard.]]
* [[spoiler:LaughingMad: Dear lord, does she ever. Even moreso in Episode 43.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Revenge}}: She defected so that she could get revenge on the Federation for killing her lover and blaming him for it.]]
** [[spoiler:RevengeBeforeReason: She actively hampers Fram and Zeheart's attempts to assist her in taking down Kio because she wants the Gundams all to herself.]]
* SamusIsAGirl: Many fans believed that Girard was a guy when she was first mentioned by Frederick in Episode 33, probably due to her GenderBlenderName.
* SanitySlippage: Oh my, yes. Just watch her face while she fights Kio.
* [[spoiler:[[ThatManIsDead That Woman Is Dead]]: She took Girard's name and declares that she is no longer Reina.]]
* TurnCoat: From the Federation.
* [[spoiler:WeHardlyKnewYe: While there's an episode focusing about her past, she only appears about 3 episodes.]]
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Persian Green Hair]]

!! Aaron Simmons
* DirtyCoward: He steals an emergency escape craft when he finds out about the Plasma Missile pointed at Luna Base and [[spoiler:kills a Vagan soldier who catches him in the act.]]
* GambitRoulette: To grease the way for his betrayal, [[spoiler:he arranges to have Reina Spriggan's lover killed, the death covered up as an "accident," and her to find out the supposed truth]]. He predicts her vengeful, TurnCoat reaction with implausible accuracy.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Via Fram bopping his shuttlecraft with the Farsia Rod, due to the actions mentioned in DirtyCoward.]]

!!Zera Gins
-->Voiced by: Creator/DaisukeNamikawa

A boy seen in a suspended animation tube. He seems quite important to Ezelcant. [[spoiler:It turns out that he's a clone of Ezelcant and pilot of the mobile armor Vagan Gear. He is intended to be Ezelcant's successor, and is the most supremely powerful X-Rounder ever encountered.]] He is said to be a "warrior without a human heart"; completely without empathy and utterly ruthless.
----

* AxCrazy: Pretty much the only thing he does or says after awakening is "Kill the Gundams.", even after [[spoiler:the battle ends and SID has absorbed his mobile armor.]] It's implied that this might be the result of [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashing]].
* DiabolusExNihilo: Although his existence is revealed about halfway through the third generation, he doesn't show up as an active character until the final episode. He's basically there [[spoiler:to provide Kio with a final, climactic fight since there are no Vagan pilot characters left alive, and to give a reason for both sides of the battle to band together]].
** GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: Given that the series has it's genesis in a LicensedGame for the ''Gundam'' franchise (see the main page), this trope is arguably in effect.
* FlatCharacter: Pretty much.
* LackOfEmpathy: Described by his own side as a warrior with no heart.
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter: Though we were given hints of his existence earlier in the series, he only really shows up in the final episode.
* TykeBomb
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: [[spoiler:He survives the final battle thanks to Kio, but his exact fate after this is not revealed.]]

[[folder:Bisidian Pirates]]
!! Captain Ash [[spoiler:AKA Asemu Asuno]]
[[quoteright:319:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/CaptainAsh_8530.jpg]]
-->Voiced by: KosukeToriumi

The leader of the Bisidian pirates. He pilots Gundam AGE-2 Dark Hound and operates as a deliberate SpannerInTheWorks for both sides of the conflict. [[spoiler:He is actually the MIA Asemu Asuno, who was rescued by the pirates after nearly dying in battle against the massive mobile armor, [=SID=]. Asemu joined them after he saw that the Federation wasn't much better even after ThePurge and eventually became the captain. His relationship with his father remains rocky, but he and Kio are quite happy to meet each other.]]
----
* AceCustom: The AGE-2 Dark Hound could be counted as this [[spoiler: even if the AGE-2 was always his to begin with.]]
* [[spoiler: ActionDad]]
* [[spoiler: AlliterativeName]]
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority
* '''{{Badass}}''': Oh, HELL YES.
** BadassLongcoat
** BadassNormal: Well, he's not an X-Rounder. [[spoiler: He's actually a [[MemeticMutation SUPAH PAIROTTO]]!]]
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Subverted.
* TheCaptain: To Bisidian. Duh.
* [[spoiler: ChekhovMIA]]
* [[spoiler: DadTheVeteran]]
* DarkIsNotEvil
** RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Subverted. [[spoiler:Although [[FridgeLogic Woolf might be angry that his pupil painted his suit in some lame colors]], even if it's to help [[FridgeBrilliance hide his identity from those that know him.]] ]]
* [[spoiler:DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou: He's trying to keep both sides from devastating each other by keeping the war at a stalemate.]]
* DressedToPlunder: Captain Ash and his crew dress like this in a SpacePirates kind of way. Ash's Dark Hound Gundam even has a pirate hat with a skull-and-crossbones with a targeting mechanism that ''looks like an eyepatch''.
* DualWielding: Is rather fond of wielding both the DODS Lancer and a beam saber at the same time.
* EasilyForgiven: His family lets him off the hook quite easily re: his disappearance and failure to send any kind of message for ''thirteen years''.
** [[spoiler:Romary can be seen with Yunoa watching the Bisidian ship depart, implying that she allowed him to continue being a Pirate.]]
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: [[LettingHerHairDown Letting His Hair Down]] + Stubble = {{Badass}}.
* {{Expy}}: [[spoiler:Of [[Manga/MobileSuitCrossboneGundam Kincaid Nau]],]] minus the [[PsychicPowers Newtype]] powers (although he seems to visually resemble [[MobileSuitGundamF91 Zabine Chareux]] more). Like the Crossbone Vanguard, they have been secretly helping the Earth Federation, though in Bisidian's case, they are trying to reform it. Fittingly enough, his interactions with Kio mirrors [[MobileSuitVictoryGundam Jinn Generham]], [[spoiler: cluing into their real relationship]].
* EyeScream: When he was found by the Bisidians wounded after his battle against [[spoiler:SID, the Mobile Suit that guarded the Cursed Treasure]], he was bleeding badly on his right eye.
* EyepatchOfPower: His Gundam has a targeting lens that rather resembles one, especially when it [[LensFlare catches the light]].
* FragileSpeedster: The Dark Hound. See WeakButSkilled below.
* GenreSavvy: [[spoiler:Saved Kio the same way Woolf saved him. But didn't get killed because he anticipated the death blow from behind.]]
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: [[spoiler:MECHA-PUNCHES the Legilis while calling out Zeheart.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has one running down from his right eyebrow, past his eye. [[spoiler:He received this from his battle with Sid.]]
* HairstyleInertia: [[spoiler:Averted after 13 years. Later played straight in the epilogue, where he returns to his old hairstyle.]]
* HeroAntagonist: [[spoiler:He attacks Federation units, but ''only'' the ones who are working for the Vagans.]]
* HookHand: The Dark Hound has a pair that serve as a GrapplingHookPistol, but they are mounted in the binders rather than actually replacing hands.
* [[spoiler: MilitaryBrat]]
* PaintItBlack: The Dark Hound is basically a black AGE-2. [[spoiler: The trope applies in a literal way.]]
* [[spoiler:PapaWolf: He tests Kio to see how good he is, but when his son is ''truly'' in danger he rips into the Vagans.]]
** [[spoiler: When Kio gets captured by Vagan, he's practically chomping at the bit to go rescue him.]]
** [[spoiler:And again in Episode 48. When Fram has Kio set up for a deathblow, it's Asemu who bails him out.]]
* PileBunker: DODS Lancer, also counts as JoustingLance.
* RatedMForManly
* [[spoiler: RogueProtagonist]]
* ScarsAreForever: [[spoiler:The incident in which he got his scar occurred thirteen years ago.]]
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: See TakeAThirdOption.
* SpacePirate: [[CaptainObvious Obviously]].
* [[AcePilot Super Pilot]]: Doesn't need psychic powers to kick your ass. How good is he? [[spoiler:Good enough to fight Ezelcant and his Gundam Legilis to a standstill using his outdated Dark Hound.]]
** And then later he takes out [[spoiler:ZEHEART. IN THE LEGILIS. Granted, Zeheart was fighting in blind rage at the time, but still.]]
* TakeAThirdOption: How he came to be with Bisidian. [[spoiler:They showed him the corruption and the atrocities of the Federation, and he'd never side with Vagan. So instead he joined Bisidian so they could force a stalemate.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: In Third Generation, we see him for first time wanting to test if Kio and Flit Asuno are good enough for the AGE system. [[spoiler: Compare it to the beginning of second generation where Asemu wanted to impress his dad. Damn.]]
** [[spoiler:Slightly subverted in Episode 36. He had to ask permission from Flit to go rescue his son, which makes you wonder how much he actually changed...]]
** Not so much when you think about it. [[spoiler: It's less asking for permission and more so asking Flit to swallow his pride and let him save Kio instead, as the Bisidian Pirates have better resources and at this point, higher combat strength. It's a marked change from how he acted toward his dad in Gen 2.]]
* TransformingMecha
* VigilanteMan: [[spoiler:The Bisidians fight both Vagan and the Federation in order to keep the war from becoming catastrophically destructive]].
* WalkingSpoiler
* [[spoiler:WhatTheHellDad: Kio tells him off for allowing his family to believe him dead for thirteen years. Asemu apologizes.]]
** [[spoiler:He later turns this on Flit, demanding to know what made him so hostile toward Vagan. However, it doesn't really sink in until Kio interjects.]]
* WeakButSkilled: Unlike nearly every other Ace he fights he's not an X-Rounder. In addition the Dark Hound trades out the more powerful beam weapons of the other Gundams [[spoiler: And its past incarnation's Hyper Rifle and Double Bullet shoulder cannon/sabers]] in favor of a more unusual Lance and twin shoulder anchor set up, along with standard beam sabers, with his only ranged weapons being rather weak beam vulcans. The end result is he has to fly around at high speeds and duck in and out of melee range to do any real damage, but is none the less the best pilot in the series, as nobody can really touch him.

[[folder:Other]]
!! SID

A massive, unmanned Mobile Armor that attacks all sides. Its purpose is to guard the EXA-DB, and it is equipped with weaponry more advanced and powerful than any seen before, likely taken from the EXA-DB itself. It is also capable of modifying itself to adapt to different situations and grow in strength.
----

* BeamSpam: SID's primary tactic. It's just about all it ever needs.
* ConflictKiller: [[spoiler:It rushes in during the final battle and merges with the Vagan Gear, then begins going to town on both sides of the conflict. This requires the Vagan and Federation armies to team up to destroy it.]]
* CyberCyclops
* {{Expy}}: An autonomous AI, capable of self-modification that attacks all sides? SID is basically a watered-down [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Devil Gundam]]!
* [[spoiler:EyeAwaken: While clinging to the biggest fragment of [=EXA-DB=] that survived the bombardment.]]
* InvisibilityCloak: It possesses the same stealth technology that Vagan warships have. In those cases that its BeamSpam tactics aren't enough, it uses it to confuse and outmaneuver its opponents.
* LightningBruiser: It's as fast as a mobile suit a third of its size, while possessing many times the firepower.
* MacGuffinGuardian: A mechanical version, for the EXA-DB.
* {{Roboteching}}: Its primary beam weapons are capable of this, somehow.
* TrueFinalBoss
