!!Judau Ashta
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KazukiYao
-->''"I'm Judau Ashta, currently skipping school!"''

A member of the Shangri-La Junk Guild, Judau is recruited by Yazan Gable in an attempt to steal the Zeta Gundam from the recently docked ''Argama''. Angered by his employer's disregard for human life, and unsettled by a meeting with the comatose Kamille Bidan, Judau turns on Yazan and following several more attempts at stealing the ''Zeta'', is eventually recruited by Bright as the leader of the ''Argama'''s new Gundam team. Despite his initial disinterest, he rapidly matures into a capable leader who tries to get the best from his team. For tropes pertaining to his late UC-era adventures, see ''Characters/MobileSuitCrossboneGundam.''
* AcePilot: Goes without saying as a Gundam protagonist, but what's notable is that he had to grow into it. The first time he pilots a Gundam, all he does is flail around wildly all over the place.
* {{Archenemy}}: To Haman Khan, due more to their mutual attraction than their mutual hatred.
* BackToBackBadasses: With Elle in Episode 31 and Beecher in Episode 38.
* {{Badass}}: He's a ''Gundam'' protagonist. What'd you expect?
** He [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan Bright slapped]] ''Bright''.
* BadassGrandpa: In a side manga, he fights against the [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Zanscare forces]] in his outdated ZZ Gundam (which at that point is older than the MechaMooks by at least 60 years). The ZZ, now nicknamed the Gump, is already missing more than half of its original parts and cobbled with so many repaired parts it has a freakin' peg leg. He's also about 80 years old at that point and still ''kicks ass''
** You'd have to be badass to not only be one of the few (if not ''only'') major characters in the Universal Century to live to old age but also ''fight'' alongside both the [[Manga/MobileSuitCrossboneGundam Crossbone Vanguard]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Uso Evin]].
* BerserkButton: Word of advice - do NOT try to harm one hair on Leina's head. Go ahead, just ask Haman who actually fled in abject terror when she sensed his pure rage (which then manifests to every Newtype in the city as a ''skyscraper-sized'' demon) after she grazes Leina with a bullet.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Oooh, boy...
* BookDumb: Not a brilliant student. Still very smart.
* ChickMagnet: Well, Ple saw him as some kind of big brother. The same can't be said of Elle and Roux, of course, or Chara Soon...and then there's ''Haman''!
* CombiningMecha: The ZZ
* {{Delinquent}}: His classmates and teacher in Shangri-la seems to view him as this.
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: His... [[DatingCatwoman complicated relationship]] with Haman. The Argama crew even start formulating battle strategies around it.
* FlawedPrototype: The Zeta Gundam's flaws start to come to the forefront here (namely, that it was so extensively tweaked and customised by Kamille that it's an absolute nightmare for anyone else to pilot), and the ZZ has such a laundry list that it's easy to see why nobody ever tried to mass-produce it. The overpowered weaponry eats battery power like nobody's business, and the much-vaunted combination system leaves it highly vulnerable when separated and introduces serious structural weaknesses when it's combined.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: He and Leina tend to act as though he's the foolish one and she's the responsible one. It's really that Leina is more willing to sacrifice some things right now if it means Judau gets an education, while he's more interested in maintaining a decent standard of living in the present.
* GlassCannon: The Double Zeta is able to dish out a lot of damage and is very well armed, sporting multiple beam sabres, missiles, and a WaveMotionGun in the forehead. It's also quite structurally weak and loses limbs and the head with unnerving frequency. Thankfully, this changes when it receives its ''Enhanced'' upgrade, turning it into a true LightningBruiser. And that was before it receives it's [[MightyGlacier ''Full Armor'']] upgrade.
* GreenEyes
* TheHero: Of the show and Team Gundam. As early as Elle's first outing in the Mark II, he's already keeping an eye on his fellow pilots, and building a team dynamic.
* HeroicBSOD: [[spoiler:After Leina's apparent death, and then after Ple's REAL death]].
* HeroicBuild: As an early ShirtlessScene demonstrates, he's ''astonishingly'' ripped for a fourteen-year-old.
* HonorBeforeReason: Gets like this towards the end.
* HotBlooded: Downplayed. Judau's fairly rational as ''Gundam'' protagonists go, but he still has a penchant for rushing in without giving the situation enough thought. Still has nothing on Kamille in this department, though.
* IdiotHero: Has some elements of this.
* InstantExpert: Mocked in the first episode, played straight afterwards.
* ItsPersonal: With Glemmy Toto after his capture of Leina and subsequent threatening of her with a gun.
* LastMinuteHookup: With [[spoiler:Roux]].
* TheLeader: Of Team Gundam. He's a Type III, leading by example.
* LightningBruiser: In the Zeta, which retains this status despite being somewhat outclassed by newer suits from Axis. Near 2/3 of the series, the ZZ finally graduates from GlassCannon status to this trope by the upgrading into ''Enhanced ZZ'', seriously boosting its speed & ass-kicking ability as well as reducing it's unbalanced structural issues.
* LikesOlderWomen: His primary love interest is ''Haman'', who's about 8 years older than him. He also ends up with the older Roux.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: One of The Double Zeta's primary attacks, other than BeamSpam or WaveMotionGun. Each of its upgrades adds still more missiles to the ZZ, enabling it to take out armies by the end.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: From the Zeta to the Double Zeta.
* MightyGlacier: After the Enhanced ZZ receives it's final upgrade to ''Full Armor ZZ'', turning it into a Mobile Suit-sized flying fortress, but reducing its speed and costing it the ability to separate into its various components.
* PsychicPowers: Like Amuro and Kamille before him, Judau is a top tier Newtype, which allows him to pull off most of the stunts he gets away with.
* ReluctantWarrior: Is exceptionally reluctant to hurt people, and at one point outright refuses to shoot down an enemy mobile suit if it would also mean killing Axis warriors who were not currently a threat.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After all is said and done, Judau packs up and heads to the Jupiter colonies. Fed up with the bullshit going on around Earth and not wanting to be a part of the madness there anymore, he set off to start a new more peaceful life for himself, his sister and Roux.
* ShutUpHannibal: A favourite hobby.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: He and Leina look a lot alike.
* SuperPrototype: The Zeta and Double Zeta.
* TakeUpMySword: Is on the recieving end of this from a comatose Kamille, who psychically passes the torch to Judau.
* TeensAreShort: His lack of height is the biggest indicator that he's younger than the average Gundam protagonist.
* WaveMotionGun: The Double Zeta comes equipped with one in its head.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Subverted. He looks pretty damn weird in a dress, in contrast to the far more convincing Iino.

!!Leina Ashta
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MayaOkamoto

Judau's younger sister and concience, Leina persuades him to help the ''Argama''. Captured by Glemmy partway through the show, her retrieval becomes Judau's main objective.
* AloneWithThePsycho: Frequently left alone with Glemmy.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: For Judau. She's actually ''very'' sensible for her age.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:Or, more accurately, Dropped A Mobile Suit On Her. Only Sayla's timely intervention saved her]].
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Believes herself to be the responsible sibling to Judau's foolish one. It would be more fair to say that she's a long term planner while Judau will do what works in the short run.
* GoGoEnslavement: A rather milder example than most, but it's still creepy the way Glemmy forces her to wear various dresses among other things after he kidnaps her. Dude's got issues.
* GreenEyes
* TheHeart: Fills this role in Judau's ensemble.
* LittleMissBadass: She's no fighter, but she's got enough stones to [[spoiler:call the Federation government out on their bullshit mere minutes after getting shot in the gut]]. The kid is ''tough''.
* LittleMissSnarker: At times
* NoMrBondIExpectYoutoDine
* OnlySaneMan
* {{Ojou}}: Glemmy turns her into one, as the poster girl for Neo-Zeon's occupation forces.
* PsychicPowers: While she's not a fighter, she has displayed Newtype abilities on various occasions.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Gives a pretty good one to the Earth Federation officials who sold out to Haman, even though most of them don't recognise it at the time.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: She's essentially a shorter, female version of Judau, with the same eyes, haircut, and square face.
* TrainingFromHell: A social version. She learns to keep her composure, come what may, while living with Glemmy Toto himself. She uses this to become TheOjou and give commands to Zeonic troops and Federation leaders like she was born to the position, ''while suffering from a gunshot wound in her stomach''.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears

!!Elle Vianno
!!!Voiced by: Creator/ErikoHara

One of Judau's oldest and closest friends, Elle is a member of the Junk Guild alongside Judau, Beecha, Iino, and Mondo and accompanies them aboard the ''Argama''. Determined to prove her usefulness, she eventually becomes the pilot of the Gundam Mark II. She tries to play big sister to Leina, and has something of a crush on Judau, a rivalry with Roux Louka, and a rocky relationship with Beecher.
* AcePilot: A strong contender for top pilot on the Argama, reliably dishing out the hurt in the hopelessly obsolete Gundam Mk. II. For the most part she's a plugger, tying up enemy units with defensive tactics until she can make a kill.
* ActionGirl: The series' second female Gundam pilot after Emma Sheen (who preceeded her as pilot of the Mark II).
* BackToBackBadasses: With Judau in Episode 31
* BadassNormal --> EmpoweredBadassNormal: Her Newtype powers don't really start to develop until late in the series. By then, she's already proven her chops as an AcePilot, and they're just a nice little bonus.
* BelligerentSexualTension: She and Beecher develop aspects of this later on, though it really depends on the episode (sometimes there's none, sometimes they actually seem to hate each other, and sometimes it's this trope). They're a fair bit like Kamille and Fa, actually.
* TheChick
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Beecher. [[spoiler:They get a LastMinuteHookup in the anime.]]
* GirlishPigtails
* HotBlooded: Elle's loud, brash, and unafraid to shove her opinion down your throat.
* InnocentBlueEyes: Elle's baby blues nicely complement her tomboyish girl-next door persona.
* InstantExpert: Despite being a weak Newtype, she's an ''incredibly'' fast learner, taking to mobile suits like a duck to water. It helps that she actually reads the freaking manual before taking off (a tradition that started with Amuro Ray).
* JackOfAllStats: The Gundam Mark II which has decent overall statistics but isn't great in any of them.
* LittleMissBadass: At fifteen, Elle is nevertheless not someone you want to mess with.
* PinkMeansFeminine: Wears a lot of pink and light red.
* PlatonicLifePartners: In the manga, she and Judau are written like this. In the anime she's his UnluckyChildhoodFriend.
* {{Shorttank}}
* {{Tomboy}}
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: She and Roux have some of this dynamic, along with shades of RedOniBlueOni. Calm, poised, self-confident Roux is the girly-girl, and loud, brash, chip-on-her-shoulder Elle is the tomboy.
* {{Tsundere}}
* WeakButSkilled: She's a none-too-powerful Newtype in a hopelessly outdated mobile suit. Still gets the job done.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In a meta-series sense; she is ''weirdly'' absent in a number of ''Super Robot Wars'' games, including and especially ''Alpha 1'' and ''Alpha Gaiden'', where she doesn't appear ''at all''. This is doubly weird given how much screentime Judau, Elpie and even sometimes Roux get.

!!Roux Louka
!!!Voiced by: Creator/NaokoMatsui

A pilot from ''La vie en rose'', Roux is the oldest and most experienced mobile suit operator in the ''Argama''s crew--which given that she's eighteen says a lot about how much trouble the ship is in. Her talents quickly earn her a place as Judau's wingwoman; she has a friendly rivalry with Elle and a very messy relationship with Neo-Zeon pilot Glemmy Toto.
* AcePilot: Already has this reputation at the start of the show.
* ActionGirl: An AcePilot and Lancer to [[TheHero Judau]]. She's also the most experienced pilot in the Gundam team and remains the second-best.
* {{Archenemy}}: One could make a fairly compelling case for her being Glemmy Toto's archnemesis, given the way that their lives are tied together.
* BadassNormal --> EmpoweredBadassNormal: In much the same way as Elle. (Though the hint was there as of Episode 19, when she almost picked up a psychic message from Glemmy.)
* CombatPragmatist: She doesn't really believe in fighting fair, mostly because her opponents tend to be far bigger and nastier than she is.
* CustomUniform: Her blue pilot suit with its star and rainbow is very distinctive.
* DefrostingIceQueen: She's never much of an ice queen, but she treats Judau and company like kids for a while.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Her first appearance involves [[CombatPragmatist sneaking up behind a hulking junk dealer and smacking him over the head with a metal pipe]].
* GuileHeroine: She's far more likely than the rest of the Gundam team to use flirting and trickery to get out of a tough situation. Unfortunately, this results in her picking up a dangerous, persistent, and, most importantly, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking ''annoying'']] StalkerWithACrush by the name of Glemmy Toto.
* TheLancer: Quickly becomes Judau's wingwoman and go-to girl.
* LastMinuteHookup: With [[spoiler:Judau]]. To be fair, it's not ''entirely'' out of the blue.
* LightningBruiser: The Zeta Gundam, which while somewhat outdated remains fast, tough, and heavily armed. It functions much like TheSniper in the team.
* TheRival: To Elle and only in the anime. In the manga, they're more friendly to each other.
* ShowSomeLeg: Flirts with Glemmy to get out of a jam. This causes problems further down the line.
* SpaceFighter: Starts out in the Core Fighter before graduating to the Zeta.
* SuperPrototype: The Zeta Gundam, which thanks to Kamille's technical skills, still holds up well in spite of the LensmanArmsRace that's going on.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: She and Elle have some of this dynamic, along with shades of RedOniBlueOni. Calm, poised, self-confident Roux is the girly-girl, and loud, brash, chip-on-her-shoulder Elle is the tomboy.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: More of a violet-blue, but you get the idea.

!!Beecher Oleg
!!!Voiced by: Shingo Hiromori

One of Judau's "friends" Beecher is initially an opportunist, who switches sides at the drop of a hat. Eventually he realises that his best chance is with the ''Argama'' and sticks with them, eventually becoming the pilot of the Hyaku-Shiki before graduating to a position of importance aboard the revamped ''Nahel Argama''.
* AlwaysSecondBest: To Judau.
* BackToBackBadasses: With Judau in Episode 38.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Shades thereof with Elle, though it really depends on the episode (sometimes there's none, sometimes they actually seem to hate each other, and sometimes it's this trope). At times they're basically [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Kamille and Fa]] 2.0.
* BlingBlingBang: With the gold Hyaku-Shiki
* TheCaptain: Of the ''Nahel Argama'', after they steal it to finish the war.
* CharacterDevelopment: Starts off as a selfish punk, and grows up quite a bit over the course of the show.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Elle. [[spoiler:They get a LastMinuteHookup in the anime.]]
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Initially. It's less a matter of malice, and more immaturity - he keeps looking for the easiest way out. [[spoiler:He eventually does rejoin the heroes and stays with them.]]
* EasilyForgiven
* EntitledBastard: No matter how many times Beecher betrays or screws Judau over, he still expects his "friend" to bail his ass out of trouble.
* EvilRedhead: Asshole redhead anyway.
* GenreSavvy: Has flashes of it, using Glemmy's [[StalkerWithACrush crush]] on Roux against him.
* TheGoodCaptain: Eventually achieves this status as he matures. It takes a few lectures from Torres and Iino before it sinks in.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor
* HypocriticalHeartwarming: His PetTheDog in Episode 29. Only Beecher gets to show Judau NoSympathy.
* InstantExpert: Climbs into the Hyaku-Shiki as though he were Char himself, and flies it pretty well, despite his only previous experience being failed attempts at stealing the ZZ.
* ItsAllAboutMe: To the point of [[{{narcissist}} narcissism]]. He gets better, but this trait never really goes away.
* JerkAss
* LazyBum: Refuses to do anything early on without being bribed or shamed in some way.
* NoSympathy: He has no sympathy for the other crew members of the ''Argama'' or Judau, especially early on.
* PetTheDog: In his own jerkish way. Beecher takes offense at Roux's rough treatment of Judau following [[spoiler:Leina's apparent death]], and proceeds to hassle her on Judau's behalf.
* TheResenter: Towards Judau, over essentially everything.
* TheRival: To Judau.
* ThoseTwoGuys: With Mondo for a while.
* TookALevelInBadass: Eventually [[spoiler:became the Nahel Argama's captain, replacing Bright Noa.]]
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Early on he and Mondo betray the ''Argama'', and even after defecting back to it, continue to backstab and screw over Judau at every opportunity, through jealousy, laziness, and stupidity. Despite all this, Elle never stops reminding Judau that Beecher is their friend.

!!Mondo Agake
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KozoShioya

Beecher's best friend, who tends to get dragged along in the other boy's schemes. Generally better natured than Beecher, Mondo's biggest problem is his laziness, and his inability to tell Beecher "no."
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Along with Beecher. [[spoiler:Like Beecher, he eventually does rejoin the heroes and stays with them.]]
* EasilyForgiven
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor
* HeyItsThatVoice: Mondo is voiced by [[{{DragonBallZ}} Majin-buu?!]]
* JerkAss -> JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LazyBum: Shares Beecher's desire to slack off.
* LoveHurts: [[spoiler:The girl he falls for, Rasara Moon, gets KilledOffForReal. [[TearJerker Sniff]].]]
* MrFixit: He was the Shangri-La salvage team's mechanic, and is surprisingly good with machinery.
* PetTheDog: With Rasara Moon. He, like Beecher, is also very annoyed by Roux's treatment of Judau in episode 29.
* {{Revenge}}: Butchers the guy who [[spoiler:kills Rasara]].
* ThoseTwoGuys: See above.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Less so than Beecher, but still not going to win any "buddy of the year" awards.

!!Iino Abbav
!!!Voiced by: Creator/MasamiKikuchi

Another of Judau's gang, Iino is the most rational of the group, often acting as a calming force and a mediator. He is close to both Judau and Elle, and tries his hardest to keep Beecher and Mondo out of trouble.
* BridgeBunnies: Acts as one of these and as a mechanic.
* ButtMonkey
* NiceGuy: A thoroughly pleasant young man who tries his hardest to be friends with everybody.
* NumberTwo: Steps into this role vis a vis [[spoiler:Beecher]] after the launching of the ''Nahel Argama'', taking over the ship in his absence.
* OnlySaneMan: In a group consisting of the treacherous Beecher, impulsive Judau, brash Elle, and idiotic Mondo, Iino is consistently the sanest and most rational member of the group.
* SeenItAll: Adapts this attitude as the story progresses, particularly where the idiocy of the rest of the group is concerned.
* TheSmartGuy: Functions as the brains of Judau's group of friends.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Makes a fairly convincing girl when the group is under cover.
* WrenchWench: Male example.

!!Bright Noa
!!!Voiced by: Creator/HirotakaSuzuoki

Captain of the ''White Base'' and then the ''Argama'', mentor to Amuro and then Kamille, Bright Noa has more experience with Gundams and teenaged Newtypes then any self-respecting Federation officer ought to. Low on manpower and out of options, Bright co-opts Judau and his friends into serving as the ''Argama'''s new crew, while trying desperately to find a way out of the mess he's in.
* AbsenceMakesTheHeartGoYonder: The rest of the crew posit this about his relationship with Emily, and there are hints that they might not be ''completely'' wrong.
* ButtMonkey: From the moment the Shangri-La kids pelt him with oranges in an attempt to steal the Zeta Gundam, ''ZZ'' largely consists of the slow erosion of the poor guy's dignity.
* TheCaptain
* TheComicallySerious: See ButtMonkey. He's trying so hard to keep his dignity in the middle of the circus that the ''Argama'' has been reduced to.
* DefectorFromDecadence: Used to be a member of the corrupt Federation. Now operates as a member of the AEUG.
* GenreSavvy: By this point, he's pretty much realised he's in a ''Gundam'' show, that teenagers in giant robots are the only way to save humanity, and that enforcing military discipline ''just won't work''.
* TheGoodCaptain
* HappilyMarried: And would really like to get home to his wife.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: With the members of Team Gundam.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The jerk part has worn thin, but it still resurfaces when he's under stress.
* JustFriends: With Emily/Emary. Good luck getting the idea through her head.
* OlderAndWiser
* ParentalSubstitute: He acts as this of sorts to Shinta and Qum when Fa is PutOnABus.
** PapaWolf: He even goes out of his way to save them when they're sucked into space.
* TeamDad

[[folder:Torres & Saegusa]]
!!Torres and Saegusa
!!!Voiced by: Kenta Abe (Torres)

* BridgeBunnies
* CommanderContrarian: Torres takes on this role vis a vis [[spoiler:Beecher]].
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Saegusa]]
* LoveHurts: [[spoiler:Poor Torres]]
* OlderAndWiser: Torres steps into this position after [[spoiler:Bright's departure]] with his age and experience giving him an edge over Team Gundam.
* ThoseTwoGuys
* TookALevelInBadass: Torres has taken one since ''Zeta''.
* WhatTheHellHero: Torres does this to [[spoiler:Cecilia]]
* WouldHitAGirl: Torres hits two girls in one episode, in fact; Chara and [[spoiler: Cecilia]].


!!Haman Khan
!!!Voiced by: Creator/YoshikoSakakibara

The leader of Axis' Neo-Zeon movement, regent to Mineva Lao Zabi, and a one-time associate of Char Aznable, the tyrannical Haman Khan was the real winner of the [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Gryps Conflict]], which saw the near destruction of the AEUG, and the annihilation of the Earth Federation's Titans. As of the start of the series, she is poised to conquer the Earth Sphere for her own purposes.
* AcePilot: One of the few aces to survive the Gryps Conflict and make it into ''ZZ'', she reconfirms her status as such several times over the course of the Neo-Zeon War.
* ALighterShadeOfBlack: At one point, she tries to present herself to Judau as this to set up an EnemyMine, presenting herself as an EvilChancellor who doesn't believe what she preaches, while calling [[spoiler:Glemmy Toto]] a psychotic monster. Judau rejects her argument.
* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler:Haman's suicide, after Judau forces her to realise she is the villain, is quite sad.]]
* AntiVillain: She's far more sympathetic than any previous Universal Century BigBad, due to her [[BrokenBird traumatic past]], her PetTheDog moments and her inner turmoil.
* {{Archenemy}}: To Judau, due more to their mutual attraction than their enmity.
* AttackDrone: On the Qubeley.
* BadAss: Possibly the best pilot of the entire Neo-Zeon War and one of the most powerful Newtypes of the era, routinely handing ungodly-powerful {{Super Prototype}}s their backsides with her aging Qubeley. Even after she disabled half her [[AttackDrone funnels]] to make her final battle with Judau a fair fight, she ''still'' fought him to a draw. No two ways about it, the lady is ''dangerous''.
* BadassCape
* TheBaroness: Sexpot variation, complete with crush on Judau.
* BigBad: Axis' tyrant, the sole survivor of ''Zeta'''s BigBadDuumvirate and the primary antagonist of the series from start to finish.
* BigBadEnsemble: During the later episodes [[spoiler:Glemmy Toto challenges her position, leading to a split in the ranks.]]
* BrokenBird: So much so that when she meets her first genuine idealist in years, she alternates between trying to manipulate him, killing him, and making out with him.
* ByronicHero: A female example, but she checks most of the boxes. However, she only embodies the "introspective" part after she meets Judau, who forces her to re-examine her worldview.
* TheChessmaster
* CultOfPersonality: Both uses the Zabi family cult for her own ends, and has one built up around herself, with young officers being indoctrinated with lessons on her brilliance.
* CustomUniform
* TheCynic: Haman refuses to believe that people can accomplish anything positive. Judau's insistence otherwise is another part of why she's so curious about him.
* DarkActionGirl
* DatingCatwoman: Her complicated relationship with Judau.
* DespotismJustifiesTheMeans: Haman doesn't have a lot of standards left, following her experiences with Char, and her disillusionment with humanity. If she ever had any ideals they are long since dead, replaced by a determination to rule the world no matter what.
* TheDreaded: The first time a Qubeley[[labelnote:*]]Piloted by Ple, but AEUG only knew of one Qubeley pilot at the time[[/labelnote]] is seen deployed in ZZ, it scares the pants off of Bright Noa, the one remaining guy on the ''Argama'' crew who'd seen the model and knew it was Haman's personal unit.
* DrivenToSuicide: She eventually decides to take this route rather than live on in defeat.
* {{Ephebophile}}: Given her intentions towards Judau. The reasons are [[BrokenBird very]], [[LonelyAtTheTop very]] [[TheCynic complicated]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Is disgusted by Mayor Stampa's trying to murder the men of the Argama just so he can [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty take their women]].
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Haman is unable to really understand why Judau is fighting against her.
* EvilChancellor: To the nominal ruler of Zeon, the seven-year-old Princess Mineva Zabi. [[spoiler:[[PetTheDog Or]] [[GiveHerANormalLife not]], as it turns out.]]
* EvilRedhead: It's more of a purple but the effect is largely the same.
* EvilerThanThou: With [[spoiler:Glemmy Toto.]]
* FemmeFatalons
* GenreSavvy: She knew that [[spoiler:Glemmy was TheStarscream]] before ''he'' did. While she fails to prevent the civil war from happening, her people are ready to deal with it, and [[spoiler: she manages to outlast Glemmy by playing him and Judau off against each other]].
* GloriousLeader: Of Axis. Despite her claims to be only Mineva's regent, Haman's still set up a strong personality cult centred around herself, and rules as absolute dictator. She also claims to be fighting for the goal of restoring Zeon to its former glories, crushes all dissent, and uses militaristic imagery and symbolism to keep her position, hitting all the classic hallmarks of this trope.
* HighlyConspicuousUniform: Most Zeon and Neo-Zeon dress uniforms are as fabulous as they come, but Haman's costume (complete with the intricate headdress) has become [[MemeticMutation memetic]] on some level as well.
* HonorBeforeReason: Refuses to use too many of her Qubeley's funnels in the final battle against Judau, reasoning that such tactics would be unfair.
** This would also be LoveMakesYouDumb then, seeing as how she had no problem doing this to anybody else.
* HumansAreBastards: Her central philosophy.
* IGaveMyWord: Keeps her word when she gives it, though this doesn't happen often, and always on ''her'' terms.
* ImprobableAge: She's twenty-one years old as of the start of the series, and already ''de facto'' dictator of Axis and a major threat to world peace and stability.
* IronLady: Haman's spine is made of tempered steel.
* LadyOfWar: She is refined and sophisticated, yet also has cast-iron nerves and is one of the most deadly combatants in the series.
* TheLeader: Of Axis/Neo-Zeon. She's a Type IV, holding the dictatorship together with her own charisma and cult of personality.
* LonelyAtTheTop: A big part of why she's drawn to Judau. [[VillainSong Silent Voice]], the second OP, is pretty much all about it.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Her crush on Char did bad things to her.
* ManipulativeBastard: She's as good at politics as mobile suit piloting, which leads to a lot of this.
* MisanthropeSupreme: Plans to grind the world under her jackbooted heel because HumansAreBastards and have it coming.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: If you buy that her last name should be Khan. She also shares a name with [[BiblicalBadGuy Haman of the Book of Esther]], who tried to talk a Persian king into massacring the Jews.
* NervesOfSteel: At one point, Judau throws a punch at her... whilst she's on foot, and he's in a mobile suit with metre-long blades for fingers. The blades stop about an inch from her nose. She doesn't even blink.
* NotSoStoic: After [[spoiler:she shoots Leina]], Judau's rage is enough to cause her to burst into tears and flee for her life. Given the other stuff she shrugs off in the series (see NervesOfSteel above), this says less about her and more about just how utterly terrifying a pissed-off Newtype can get.
* OhCrap: Has one after she accidentally shoots Leina and the psychic manifestation of Judau's rage proceeds to try and melt her brain.
* PetTheDog: A retroactive example. [[spoiler:It turns out that Mineva Zabi, the seven-year-old puppet who she's apparently been heartlessly manipulating throughout the war, is actually a BodyDouble. The real Mineva hasn't been seen since the end of the Gryps Conflict, and Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn confirms that she [[GiveHerANormalLife spent her childhood in safety and obscurity]].]] It seems the calling-out she got from Char during ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' had an impact after all.
* PsychicPowers: She's a Newtype, and an immensely powerful one at that, having faced down the absolutely frightening Kamille and Scirocco in the previous show, and come out alive and mentally intact. During her final battle with Judau, [[spoiler: her powers are able to stop a direct hit from the Double Zeta's mega-particle cannon, despite it being empowered by [[CombinedEnergyAttack the combined psychic might of Judau Ashta, Kamille Bidan, and the dead Newtypes from the Gryps Conflict]]. Her Qubeley is damaged from the attack, but still fully functional.]]
* PurpleEyes: She has them, and is both one of the most powerful [[PsychicPowers Newtypes]] and one of the best pilots of any era, as well as being the BigBad.
* RegentForLife: Officially Haman is only Mineva's regent. In practise she's the real leader of Axis and everybody knows it.
* SleevesAreForWimps: Her Neo-Zeon regalia.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Karn, Khan, Kahn?
* TakeOverTheWorld: Plans to overrun the Earth Sphere in the name of Zeon.
* UnusualWeaponMounting: The Qubeley's tail-mounted attack drones give it a very insectoid appearance.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Once upon a time, long, long ago.
* VillainousCrush: Has a truly warped one on Judau. Given that he's got most of Char's good qualities--and reminds Haman of what she was like at his age--this isn't really surprising.
* VillainousLegacy: Haman lays claim to the legacy of the Principality of Zeon and the Zabi family in particular.
* WeCanRuleTogether: Tries this on Judau
* WeHaveReserves: Notes after [[spoiler:Mashymyre's death]] that "all this means... is that the number of resources available to me has decreased by one"... though her tone of voice suggests that she's trying to convince ''herself'' of that.
* WomanInBlack
* WomanScorned: Is driven by her anger towards Char. It's worth remembering that they never actually had a relationship - she just crushed ''badly'' on him in the years after the One Year War, and he [[BrokenPedestal let her down]].
* WouldHurtAChild: [[spoiler: Makes it clear to Judau that she'll order Mineva killed, along with him, if he tries to take her away. Judau backs down because he realizes that Haman isn't bluffing.]]

!!Mashmyre Cello
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KenyuHoriuchi
-->''"Lady Haman. I will prove myself worthy of this rose."''

A newly minted Neo-Zeon commander with a crush on Haman Khan and an overdeveloped sense of fair play, Mashmyre attempts to capture the ''Argama'' early in the show, while still hoping to avoid civillian casualties, and win the colonies over to Haman. Honourable, honest, and in way over his head, he is slowly broken by the progression of the war.
* AgentPeacock: Looks like a poof, but can outfight anybody who isn't Judau.
* AntiVillain: Pretty much the only reason the Argama crew have a chance against him at first is because of his sense of fair play and desire to avoid civilian casualties. [[spoiler:The Dublin colony drop essentially [[DespairEventHorizon breaks him]], and he drops the 'anti' from then onwards.]]
* BadBoss: [[spoiler:Becomes this after crossing the DespairEventHorizon, even ordering the assassination of a mutinous subordinate during a battle.]]
* BenevolentBoss: Cares greatly for his men in the early parts of the show, with his few moments of carelessness easily explained by his clueless naivete. [[spoiler:That is before he went nuts...]]
* CulturedBadass: Despite being a bad guy he's honorable & a gentleman, [[AgentPeacock both in & out of the battlefield]]. [[spoiler:After becoming broken thanks to all the shit that happened in the war, he drops the ''honorable & a gentleman'' part.]]
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Having to command the Dublin colony drop pushed him over this - he even gives away Haman's rose, claiming he's no longer worthy of it.]]
* DetachmentCombat: Essentially, this is what makes the Hamma Hamma so dangerous - much like the One Year War's Zeong, its hands can be sent out on wires and remote-controlled, allowing it to blast you from almost any direction.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Once failed to register a lecture on tactics from Haman because he was too busy staring at the dictator of Neo Zeon's cleavage.
* TheDragon: Tries to become Haman's. By the end he and Chara are her CoDragons.
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:Terrifies Ple-2 and Rakan Dahkaran and provokes an actual emotional response from Haman Khan, while taking several of his killers with him.]]
* EnsignNewbie: As green as the grass at the start of the series, much like his foes on Shangri-La.
* HonourBeforeReason: His early-series personality in a nutshell.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: See LaughablyEvil, below.
* IveComeTooFar: Regards the Dublin Colony Drop as his own personal MoralEventHorizon. He hates himself for what he did, but knows that after that, there is no going back.
* KnightInShiningArmour: He thinks he is.
* LadyAndKnight: He wants to be the KnightInShiningArmour to Haman's Lady. He fails, but as the series progresses, he manages to become her Black Knight.
* LargeHam: Easily the hammiest character in the series.
* LaughablyEvil: At first. But later...
* LightningBruiser: Whilst the Hamma Hamma and Zaku III aren't quite on the level of demented monstrosities like the Queen Mansa and Doven Wolf, they are still very dangerous opponents in his hands so they qualify for this trope.
* LoveMartyr: Hopelessly in love [[BodyguardCrush with Haman]]. It didn't work out too well for him - see TragicVillain, below.
* MrImagination: Constantly gets distracted by flashbacks to Haman's lectures on Axis. [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} They probably]] [[{{FakeMemories}} didn't happen the way]] [[{{Brainwashed}} he thinks they did.]]
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: Remains loyal to Haman Khan irrespective of how many lines she crosses, or forces him to cross.
* ShellShockedVeteran: After the Dublin ColonyDrop.
* SleevesAreForWimps: On his second uniform.
* SuckMyRose
* SuperpowerMeltdown: [[spoiler:Overloads his Cyber-Newtype abilities, blowing up his suit, along with a captured Doven Wolf.]]
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler:After he gets caught in a shocking wire trap that is about to destroy him and his MS, he pulls one of the enemy wires to bring one close enough to crush the mobile suit's head and hangs on while his MS explodes.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: After [[spoiler: becoming a Cyber-Newtype]], he becomes a genuinely dangerous pilot, able to fight Ple-2 to a draw despite the amazing power of her Queen Mansa mobile suit. The upgrade doesn't do his sanity any good, though.
* TragicVillain: Started off as a naive but good-hearted young man, but his puppyish devotion to Haman led him to do horrible things to himself and other people until he was merely a broken, nihilistic shell of a human being.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: After he gets upgraded to an Artificial Newtype.
* WrongGenreSavvy: An IneffectualSympatheticVillain in a military sci-fi tragicomedy who thinks he's the hero of an Arthurian romance. Predictably, it doesn't end well for him.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Kyara Soon
!!!Voiced by: Hazuki Kadoma

Sent to keep an eye on Mashmyre, Kyara Soon takes over command of the ''Endra'' when he is recalled to Axis. One-part valley girl and one-part AxeCrazy, she is an unpredictable adversary whose intelligence and competence seems to vary depending on the day.
* AnimeHair: She wouldn't have looked out of place in ''JemAndTheHolograms''.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Especially when piloting a suit.
* [[HandsomeLech Beautiful Lech]]: She keeps trying to seduce Bright, Judau, and any other male who crosses her path. She usually ends up making them deeply uncomfortable instead.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Despite her nuttiness, she's actually the most competent pilot in Mashmyre's force ([[DamnedByFaintPraise not that that's saying much]]), and in concert with Mashmyre, is able to bring down Judau in the Zeta Gundam. [[spoiler: Later, she makes an excellent showing against Ple-Two's Queen Mantha while cackling like a lunatic.]]
* CloudCuckooLander: She makes the average Cyber-Newtype look normal. [[spoiler:Then she gets turned into one herself. It doesn't help.]]
* CoDragons: She and Mashmyre share the job of Haman's Dragon by the end.
* DarkActionGirl
* DyingMomentOfAwesome with [[HeroicSacrifice Somewhat Heroic Sacrifice]]: She holds off the Ple clones to allow Judau and Haman to have their final confrontation at the cost of her life. She also grabs a hold of one of the Ple clone's MS to take one with her when her MS explodes.
* MarshmallowHell: Chara simply cannot keep her breasts to herself. She first does this to Gottn when she's getting the idea to steal the ZZ, then later to Judau on two separate occasions.
* MsFanservice
* OrgasmicCombat
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Kyara Soon or Chara Soon?
* {{Stripperiffic}}: For some reason, all the Neo Zeon personnel we see [[spoiler:get turned into Cyber-Newtypes]] end up wearing much less afterwards, but it's particularly pronounced with her.
* TalkativeLoon: When in a mobile suit cockpit. Initially, it's due to acute space-sickness. Later, it's... [[OrgasmicCombat not]].
* TokenEvilTeammate: For the time she's on the Argama as a prisoner.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Her initial opinion on piloting mobile suits - she gets space-sick ''very'' easily. Her opinion make a complete 180, though, after she discovers that it was just wearing a pilot suit that was making her ill.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity

!!Glemmy Toto
!!!Voiced by: Creator/TsutomuKashiwakura
--> ''"My mama once told me... that to be a man I must prove my aggressiveness to a woman."''

A 17-year old pilot in Mashmyre's squadron who first sees combat when the ''Endra'' pursues the ''Argama'' out of Shangri-La, Glemmy is an affable, easily distracted teenager who quickly develops an enormous crush on Roux Louka after capturing her early in the show. [[spoiler:He's also a ManipulativeBastard with the blood of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Gihren Zabi]] himself running through his veins, and has ambitions of his own where Neo-Zeon's leadership is concerned.]]

As one might gather from the write-up, Glemmy is a WalkingSpoiler. Read with caution.
* AdaptationalVillainy: He was bad in the anime, but the manga adds a whole new list of crimes to his rapsheet, while ommitting his good points.
* AmbitionIsEvil
* ApocalypseHitler: [[spoiler:He's a clone (maybe) of Gihren Zabi, the UC's equivalent of Hitler, and he manages to make an already horrific war worse by adding a civil war element and armies of clones to it. Justified as he was given power by Haman and then used that to gain still more]].
* {{Archenemy}}: One could make a fairly convincing case that he's Roux Louka's. From shortly after his first appearance the two of them share a connection, and their paths continuously cross, until [[spoiler:Roux kills Glemmy]] in the end.
* AristocratsAreEvil: The Totos were Zeonic nobility; their seats at Zum City's Opera House were only a few boxes down from the one reserved for the Zabi family. They're still very rich, a fact that works to Glemmy's advantage. [[spoiler:And that's without getting into [[TheEvilPrince who his real "father"]] may have been.]]
* BadBoss: Glemmy's a user. Once you don't a have a use anymore, you're gone.
* BastardBastard: Is either Gihren's [[spoiler:clone or his son]]. Either way he's illegitimate and either way he's a bastard in every sense of the word.
* BigBadEnsemble: Competes with Haman for title of overall series' BigBad.
* BiggerStick: Not a great pilot. When he climbs into advanced mechs like the Bawwoo and [[spoiler:[[EvilIsBigger Queen Mansa]]]] that doesn't matter very much.
* {{Bishonen}}
* BlondGuysAreEvil
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Glemmy comes across as a silly, empty-headed UpperClassTwit, but he's actually one of Neo-Zeon's most cunning and ruthless strategists.
* CharClone: [[spoiler:Blonde-haired mastermind? Chillingly cold manipulator? Lots of little girls? Judau might have gotten Char's ''good'' qualities, but Glemmy got his bad ones.]]
* TheCharmer: He's able to charm most people he meets, either by getting them to see him as a) [[AffablyEvil likeable]] or b) [[HarmlessVillain totally harmless]]. [[ManipulativeBastard He]] [[FauxAffablyEvil is]] [[NotSoHarmlessVillain neither]].
* TheChessmaster: Unlike just about everyone else in this show, Glemmy has his act together. He has a plan, he has a goal, and he has pawns that he can put to use to accomplish them.
* CloningBlues: [[spoiler:Not only did he clone Ple, he himself may be a test tube baby with the DNA of Gihren Zabi in his blood]].
* ClonesArePeopleToo: [[spoiler:He and Gihren have the same charisma, evil, and manipulative ability, but the similarities stop there]].
* CombatPragmatist: Intentionally targets the ZZ Top in an attempt to keep the ZZ Gundam from forming.
* CompositeCharacter: Take Char's worst qualities. Now, throw [[spoiler:Gihren Zabi]] into the mix, and add a dash of [[TeensAreMonsters evil teenager tropes]] for good measure.
* TheCoup: Attempts to launch one against Haman Khan, using his claims to Zabi lineage to get the people and the military behind him.
* CultOfPersonality: Exploits the Zabi family cult in order to launch his MilitaryCoup.
* CulturedWarrior[=/=]WickedCultured: Tries to project this image, buying Leina fancy clothes, teaching her proper ettiquette and how to play the violin and the piano, but it's undermined by his childishness and the fact that he's creeping on a twelve year old.
* CustomUniform: The blue and red getup he wears later in the series is quite distinct from the usual Neo-Zeon uniforms.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: On the subject of Cyber-Newtypes. [[spoiler:He knows Elepo Ple will turn on him eventually, and has both a backup ready to go, and plans to get rid of her. One wonders if he watched ''Zeta''.]] He also goes out of his way to make sure that the [[CombiningMecha ZZ]] can't dock during his first battle with it, and has a penchant for trying to take out the pieces individually in later battles; on another occasion he anticipates that the team will try to use his crush on Roux against him and only pretends to be fooled.
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler:In the anime, he is killed by Roux, the girl he had a crush on.]] In the manga, however, [[spoiler:it is Judau who kills him off.]]
* DespotismJustifiesTheMeans: [[spoiler:He seeks to recreate the Zabi dictatorship over Zeon, and eventually, the world and doesn't care what lines he'll have to cross to do so.]]
* DissonantSerenity: Glemmy remains eerily calm and/or cheerfully enthusiastic for most of his appearances, no matter what sort of crimes he is currently engaged in.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Towards every superior officer he serves under. They all know he has his own agenda, yet he's a consistently effective subordinate, which results in his being handed more and more power.
* EnemyCivilWar: Triggers one. Ironically, if he hadn't done this, Neo-Zeon might have actually ''won''.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Doesn't like it when August and the Blue Team launch an attack on a civilian village, because it won't actually help the war effort. Glemmy might not have a problem with war crimes, but he does seem to resent ''pointless'' ones.
* EvilIsBigger: The Queen Mansa, one of the largest mobile suits of the UC timeline.
* EvilMentor: To Leina, Elepo Ple, and Ple-2. He tries to turn Leina into the poster girl for Neo-Zeon, complete with violin and etiquette lessons, and turns the Ple's into blindly loyal killing machines while acting as a parental figure.
* TheEvilPrince: [[spoiler:Seems intent on reliving Gihren's life, including betraying the sovereign.]]
* EvilerThanThou: [[spoiler:With Haman late in the show]].
* ExpendableClone: How he treats [[spoiler:the Ple's, plotting to create an entire army of them]].
* {{Expy}}: Of Gihren Zabi. [[spoiler:See CompositeCharacter for all the details. He himself has an expy in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'''s Muruta Azrael.]]
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler:Calmly accepts his death once he realises that it's Roux who has shot him.]]
* FaceOfAnAngelMindOfADemon: See the bishie pretty boy up there? Arguably the most depraved villain in the show.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Is revealed as this as the show progresses.
* FightsLikeANormal: He's such a low-level Newtype that his PsychicPowers are all but irrelevant.
* FluffyTheTerrible: "Glemmy Toto" isn't exactly the most terrifying name out there. Be honest--how many of you ended up picturing the dog from ''WizardOfOz'' the first time you heard the name?
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler:Goes from being a joke pilot in a joke squadron led by a joke commander to arguably the true BigBad of the show.]]
* GloriousLeader: [[spoiler:Is aiming to replace Haman Khan as Axis' tyrant, and espouses a version of Gihren Zabi's philosophy that posits that he, and not Mineva, is the true heir to the Zabi throne.]]
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:Gives a smile before Roux's laser incinerates him.]]
* GreenEyedMonster: Thanks to the defecting [[spoiler:Beecher and Mondo]]'s "info", he thought Judau and Roux were an item early in the anime, and went into a jealous rage. May be HilariousInHindsight, [[spoiler:as they ''do'' end up together in the end]].
* HappilyAdopted: From what we can tell.
* HiddenDepths: And how. As the spoilers on this page would indicate, there's a whole lot more to Glemmy than meets the eye.
* HighlyConspicuousUniform: Even by Neo-Zeon standards. Red and blue are not subtle.
* HopelessSuitor: Has a huge crush on Roux, which she scornfully and thoroughly ignores... [[GuileHeroine unless it serves her purposes, of course.]]
* InTheBlood: [[spoiler: And given whose DNA he shares, this is a very bad thing.]]
* InnocentBlueEyes: Horrifically subverted. Underneath those pretty blue eyes and dopey facade, he is a screaming mass of anger and ambition.
* LackOfEmpathy: A major part of his character - for instance, when it seems he's lost Leina and Ple, his first thought is annoyance at how many hours he wasted training them. It's also what makes his pursuit of Roux so creepy - he basically sees her as a possession to be obtained, rather than an actual person.
* LaughablyEvil: He's initially like this in the anime - he's still not a nice guy, but he isn't particularly ''[[HarmlessVillain threatening]]''. The manga plays him more seriously from the start.
* {{Lolicon}}: There are some creepy hints, particularly in his interactions with the Ple's and Leina. Since he's only a teenager himself, however, it's not what you'd call definitive evidence.
* LoveAtFirstSight: With Roux for a given value of [[StalkerWithACrush love]].
* LoveMakesYouDumb: Whenever Roux is involved, Glemmy's brain goes on vacation. She's more than happy to take advantage of this. Subverted when he pretends to be giving into one of these bouts, and instead manipulates her right back.
* {{Lust}}: For power. Then again, his obsession with Roux, and creepy behaviour around Leina and the Ple's, would seem to indicate that the sexual variety is also present.
* ManipulativeBastard: Plays on the Federation's greed, Roux's belief that he's an idiot, the Ple's need for a parental figure, and Haman's desire for somebody to trust at various points.
* MightyGlacier: Pilots the Queen Mansa, an [[UpToEleven overblown version]] of the Psycho Gundam & one of the most dangerous Mobile Suits in all of UC [[spoiler:with a BrainwashedAndCrazy Ple-Two as co-pilot]].
* MilitaryCoup: Glemmy's attempt at this succeeds partly because of popularity with the Axis civilians, but mainly because he has secured the support of powerful factions within the Axis military, most notably Rakan Dahkaran.
* MookPromotion: Begins the show as just another pilot in Mashmyre's squadron. Ends the series as a competitor for the title of BigBad.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: His attempt at [[spoiler:a coup against Haman Khan]] is essentially what saves [[spoiler:the EF]].
* NobleDemon: Initially appears to be one. It rapidly becomes quite obvious that he isn't, and will in fact cross almost any lines in order to get what he wants.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Starts off as a likeable, [[BunnyEarsLawyer somewhat ridiculous young man]]. [[spoiler:He eventually turns against Haman and sparks a devastating EnemyCivilWar, and that's after damn near killing Judau on a dozen occasions]].
* ParentalAbandonment: [[spoiler:By Gihren (and whoever else helped provide his DNA). His adoptive family seems to have been supportive though (if a bit screwed up in their views on relationships), which negates its usefulness as a FreudianExcuse.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: To [[spoiler:the Ple's. He makes a pretty awful one.]] Also to Leina, while she's under his care; he seems to be raising her as a daughter, with his [[GoGoEnslavement dressing her up in fancy clothes]], having her learn the piano, and presenting her to the other Neo Zeon elite.
* PsychicPowers: A low-level Newtype.
* TheReveal: Episode 32: [[spoiler:He's got genetic connections to the Zabis, an army of Ple clones in the storage unit of the ''Sandra'', and plans to betray Haman Khan and seize the reins of power for himself.]]
* RichBitch: A male example, using his wealth to buy an officer's commission, and relentlessly showing off his cultured upbringing.
* RousingSpeech: Seems to have inherited his genetic donor's gift for them, turning much of Neo-Zeon over to his side with one speech.
* ShouldersOfDoom: Neither are the sizeable shoulder pads.
* SkywardScream: At the end of Episode 29.
* SmugSnake: In the manga, where they turn his arrogance and viciousness up while leaving out most of his entertaining qualities.
* TheSociopath: He's got many traits of ASPD in anime, though his genuine affection for Roux may spare him. The manga version is a straight example.
* SociopathicSoldier: Starts out as just another would-be pilot, albeit one with a clear willingness to disregard the rules in order to win.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler:His attempted coup d'etat pretty much saves the Earth Federation and the AEUG from Haman by splitting Axis-Zeon's forces.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Glemy, Glemmy?
* StalkerWithACrush: To Roux, after she flirts with him to escape capture. It gets really creepy, ''really'' fast.
* TheStarscream: To Haman late in the show.
* StepfordSmiler: One interpretation of ''[[FridgeBrilliance many]]'' [[FridgeBrilliance of his lines]] early on imply [[spoiler:he's screaming inside as he forces smile after smile.]]
* TakeOverTheWorld: Has his own aspirations in regards to ruling Axis and the Earth Sphere.
* TeenGenius: A competent pilot, execllent schemer, and all around manipulative snake at 17.
* TeensAreMonsters: At 17 he's a child-abuser, kidnapper and [[spoiler:wannabe dictator]].
* TookALevelInBadass: Starts out as a joke. Becomes an exceptionally dangerous adversary by the end, though more in a political and military sense than a physical one.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Though whether he got more evil or simply revealed what was already there is a good question.
* TransformingMecha: The Bawwoo, which he flies for much of the show's first half.
* UndyingLoyalty: To the concept of Zeon as embodied by the Zabis. [[spoiler:To individual rulers, [[TheStarscream not so much]].]]
* UpperClassTwit: Subverted. He acts like it, but over the course of the series, it becomes clear that he's not nearly as much of a twit as he seems.
* UriahGambit: [[spoiler:Does it to August Gidan and Arias, sending them out to attack the ''Argama'' when they become a problem for him.]]
* VillainousCrush: On Roux. She does not reciprocate, though she's not above using it to manipulate him. For his part Glemmy's not above using her expectations about how he'll act against her, either.
* VillainousLegacy: [[spoiler:Glemmy, like Haman, would like to claim the leadership of the Zeonic movement and the legacy of the Zabi family.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Glemmy's hiding a lot, to say the least.
* WarriorPrince: [[spoiler:Claims descent from Zeonic royalty.]] Is a capable soldier and mobile suit commander.
* WouldHurtAChild: Especially in the manga, where he tries to kill Elepo Ple in person. He also doesn't care at all how many ten year old girls die in his service.
* {{You Cloned Hitler}}: [[spoiler:More of a [[ANaziByAnyOtherName You Cloned Gihren Zabi]]?!]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Callously abandons Elepo Ple when she fails to live up to his requirements, and plans to do the same to Ple-2]].

!!Elpeo Ple
!!!Voiced by: Creator/ChiekoHonda

A Neo-Zeon Newtype girl raised to be an AcePilot, she is ordered to focus her attention on Judau Ashta early in the series. This backfires spectacularly when she decides she loves him (not in ''that'' way: she sees him as an older brother), and pulls a HeelFaceTurn. Despite her immaturity and incredible cheerfulness, she is rather mentally unstable and doesn't have much in the way of a moral compass.
* AttackDrone: On the Qubeley Mark II.
* BadassAdorable
* BirdRun: "Purupurupurupuru..."
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Glemmy tried it to get her under control. [[GenreSavvy He didn't expect it to last. He was right.]]
* ChildSoldiers: A fine demonstration of why using these is a really terrible idea.
* ClingyJealousGirl: To Judau. Given that she's ten (and not very mature for her age), the self-centredness is unsurprising.
* CuteAndPsycho: She hasn't really started to develop a moral compass yet. Being raised by Glemmy didn't help, [[spoiler:and neither did being a Cyber-Newtype]].
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: [[spoiler:During their battle with the monstrous Psyco Gundam Mk-II, she used her wrecked Qubeley to shield Judau from an incoming energy blast, then telekinetically hijacked the Psyco's reflector bits to fry it with its own guns. Needless to say, she didn't survive.]]
* EnfanteTerrible: Nothing is known about her past, and it's believed that she has been raised all her life to be a soldier.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Jumping out of the bathtub and [[BirdRun Bird Running]] around Axis naked the moment she senses Judau's presence.
* GreenEyedMonster: Towards Leina.
* HeelFaceTurn: Started as Glemmy's secret weapon, but soon ended up joining Judau and the Argama.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Against Ple-2 and the Psyco Gundam.]]
* InnocentBlueEyes: Played with. She's innocent in a rather psychotic way.
* LittleMissBadass: Unstable though she may be, she does have quite a bit of legitimate skill at piloting.
* MysteriousPast: It's never quite established who she was before Glemmy got his hands on her. [[ArtificialHuman Assuming she even was anybody to begin with.]]
* PhlebotinumGirl: A Newtype pilot raised from birth to be a soldier. While she's not Judau's LoveInterest (as much as she might want to be), she ''does'' become an adoptive sister.
* PsychicPowers: One of the strongest Newtypes in the series. [[spoiler:[[SuperSoldier She had help.]]]]
* SociopathicHero: Ple is almost completely amoral, due to Glemmy's utter failure to raise her properly. She's only on the Gundam Team because she loves Judau.
* SpiritAdvisor: [[spoiler: After her death, she still speaks to Judau and Ple Two, stiffening the former's resolve and breaking the latter's.]]
* SuperSoldier: [[spoiler:She's a Cyber-Newtype.]]
* SweetTooth: At her age, it'd probably be more unusual if she ''couldn't'' consume her body weight in ice cream at one sitting.
* TroublingUnchildhoodBehavior: All over the place. Glemmy is a ''lousy'' ParentalSubstitute.
* {{Tykebomb}}: It... didn't work out so well. She's the reason Glemmy uses hypnotic conditioning to brainwash his subsequent Newtype pilots.
* UnskilledButStrong: As a pilot and Newtype. She is, after all, ten years old.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: [[spoiler:She's confirmed to be a Cyber-Newtype halfway through the series.]]

!!Rakan Dahkaran
!!!Voiced by: Ryuusuke Oobayashi
-->''"I'll make [[TheHero you]] part of the ruins, boy!"''

A Neo-Zeon ace with a love of combat and no moral compass, Rakan is Axis' go-to man for the dirtiest of jobs. [[spoiler:He eventually betrays Haman and sides with Glemmy's faction due to his belief that the latter is stronger.]]
* AcePilot: A classic Steamroller.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: He's got a rather Middle Eastern look. How dark his skin is tinted varies depending on the episode and the lighting--sometimes it's tanned, other times, nearly black.
* {{Badass}}: Exemplified by an incident in the ''Char's Deleted Affair'' interquel manga, where it's mentioned that he ran out of ammo halfway through the Battle of Solomon in the One Year War, and proceeded to spend the rest of the fight carving up Federation suits with his Dom's heat sabre instead of bothering to retreat and rearm.
* BadassBeard
* BadassCape
* BadassNormal: He's not a Newtype and he doesn't fly a SuperPrototype. Good luck getting out alive anyway.
* BadBoss: Cares nothing for his troops, and in his first appearance, pulls a gun on a kid who questions his orders.
* BeardOfEvil: A fairly classic one actually.
* BladeOnAStick: On the Dreissen.
* TheBrute: For Haman [[spoiler:and then Glemmy.]] When Neo-Zeon has a situation that requires the application of force without empathy, Rakan is always their first call.
* ColonelKilgore: Rakan enjoys warfare, for the violence, and the adrenaline rush.
* CombatPragmatist: Gangs up on single enemies, shoots unarmed foes, stabs unsuspecting opponents in the back, and generally ignores the rules of chivalry that mean so much to commanders like Mashmyre.
* CustomUniform: A sleeveless grey one with shoulder pads, that looks almost nothing like the usual green or black uniforms sported by Zeon and Neo-Zeon commanders.
* {{Elite Mooks}}: Leads the Doven Wolf squadron during the finale, which is made up of these.
* EvilIsNotPacifist: As a dedicated ColonelKilgore, Rakan wants peace the way an alcoholic wants a glass of milk.
* EvilSoundsDeep
* {{Expy}}: He's a skilled, impressively durable, and quite conscience-devoid Oldtype pilot [[spoiler:with some major character deaths to his name]]. In other words, he's Neo Zeon's answer to [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Yazan Gable]], with some discipline and command talent thrown in.
* HeroKiller: He's got a nasty reputation within Neo-Zeon and lives up to it. He takes out [[spoiler:Hayato]] and [[spoiler:Mashymyre]], fights two members of the Royal Guard and Chara at once [[spoiler:killing one of the Guards, Lance, in their second encounter]], and gives Judau several brutal fights.
* IFightForTheStrongestSide: [[spoiler:Which is why he switches to Glemmy's faction.]]
* ImplacableMan: Nothing stops Rakan. He will catch up to you, and he will finish the job.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:Judau finally finishes him off in their final duel by slicing his mobile suit & him in half using ZZ's beam sabers. Rest in pieces, you son-of-a-bitch]].
* KickTheDog: Guns down hospital ships and fleeing refugees and blows up bridges and roads during the Dublin ColonyDrop operation, just to make sure nobody escapes the blast radius in time.
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: For all that Rakan's addicted to violence, he's not foolhardy. When the situation turns against him, he inevitably makes a tactical retreat, returning to bedevil Judau another day.
* LackOfEmpathy: Rakan doesn't express an interest in anybody other than himself. He can kill noncombatants, betray his superiors, and send his men out to die, all without batting an eye or suffering any pangs of consience.
* LightningBruiser: He's got a fondness for big, fast, and heavily-armed suits. His first suit, the AMX-009 Dreissen, is a descendant of Zeon's infamous Dom family (read - a massive lump of armour with thermonuclear thrusters), and he only gets faster and more heavily armoured from there, starting with the Zaku III he flies in Episode 35. His final ride, the AMX-014 Doven Wolf is one of the toughest, quickest, and most manouverable suits to ever see mass production.
* MoreDakka: The Doven Wolf mounts more guns than some armadas.
* RammingAlwaysWorks: Orders his ship to ram the ''Argama'' in his first appearance.
* ScaryBlackMan: [[AmbiguouslyBrown Maybe]].
* ShouldersOfDoom: Not that this is atypical for Neo-Zeon uniforms, but with his lack of sleeves it stands out.
* TheSociopath: A high-functioning one, with his impulses firmly under control, but one nonetheless.
* SociopathicSoldier: Joined the army for the violence.
* SleevesAreForWimps
* {{Turncoat}}: [[spoiler:Goes over to Glemmy's faction]].
* WalkingArmoury: His final mobile suit, the Doven Wolf.

!!!Voiced by: Creator/ChiekoHonda

A child soldier and the first in a line of clones of Elpeo Ple, she has none of her original's cheerfulness or energy, and instead is cold and deadly serious. Raised solely to be a soldier, controlled via brainwashing, and treated more like a piece of equipment than a person, she also has had Cyber-Newtype enhancements, which sometimes lead to crippling headaches.
* AcePilot: Which, when combined with piloting SuperPrototype Newtype weapons makes her ''extremely dangerous''.
* AttackDrone: The Psyco Gundam II can [[DetachmentCombat detach its hands and head]] in a manner similar to the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Zeong]], and is also equipped with a set of [[AttackReflector reflector bits]]. The Qubeley Mk.II and Queen Mansa have the more traditional version.
* AttackReflector: The Psyco Gundam Mk.II's 'reflector bits', which let it redirect its own attacks as well as everyone else's. [[spoiler:[[HoistByHisOwnPetard Then Ple hijacks them.]]]]
* BadassCape: Her Neo-Zeon uniform, as seen in the picture.
* BiggerStick: The Psyco Gundam Mk.II is far stronger than Ple's Qubeley. The Queen Mantha, similarly, overpowers [[spoiler: Chara Soon's force, despite Chara being Ple's equal in skill.]]
* BloodKnight: Given that she was basically [[SuperSoldier built for combat]], it's none too surprising.
* ChildSoldiers: She never had [[CloningBlues much of a childhood]], though.
* ClonesArePeopleToo: Has a markedly different personality from the original Ple. Glemmy still sees her as expendable though.
* CloningBlues
* CuteAndPsycho: Emphasis on psycho.
* DavidVersusGoliath: Her sortie in the Psyco Gundam Mark II against the ''Argama'' and it's badly damaged suits.
* TheDragon: To Glemmy.
* EnfanteTerrible: Though it's not exactly her fault. Glemmy makes a lousy parental figure.
* EvilIsBigger: Pilots the salvaged Psyco Gundam Mark II, in contrast to Elepo Ple's far smaller Qubeley Mark II. Later she upgrades to the [[spoiler:Queen Mansa]].
* EvilRedhead
* EvilTwin: To Elpeo Ple.
* ExpendableClone: How Glemmy views her.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:After Glemmy's death in the final moments of the anime, and [[TearJerker right before]] [[RedemptionEqualsDeath she dies]].]]
* HeroKiller: [[ChildSoldier You wouldn't know it to look at her]], but she's one of Neo Zeon's most dangerous weapons, giving the ''Argama'''s pilots a hell of a fight every time she sorties and killing [[spoiler:Ple and Emily]].
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: Her first battle involved a sortie against a damaged ''Argama'' that was just recovering from a brutal battle against Rakan Dakharan's forces. Both the Qubeley Mark II and ZZ were damaged, and in the case of the latter, almost out of ammo.
* LittleMissBadass: Just as good a pilot as the original Ple, and with a dead-serious demeanor that makes her even more dangerous.
* NakedOnArrival: How Glemmy stores her before her activation, further driving home that he sees her as a weapon rather than a human being.
* NippleAndDimed: When she's naked in storage.
* NobleDemon: While she's cold and murderous, she has standards. She tends not to attack people who aren't a threat, and once orders a civilian released when she thinks that the latter isn't involved in anything and is being held unfairly.
* PetTheDog: She releases Rutina after deciding that the latter has nothing to do with any of the anti-Zeon activity going on.
* PsychicPowers: A powerful Cyber-Newtype.
* SoLastSeason: Averted by the Psyco Gundam Mark II which remains a force to be reckoned with, requiring nothing less then [[spoiler:a HeroicSacrifice]] to defeat.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Puru? It's Ple.
* SuperPrototype: The Psyco Gundam Mark II, Qubeley Mark II [[spoiler:and Queen Mansa]].
* SuperSoldier
* WeaponsOfMassDestruction: The Psyco Mark II retains this status. [[spoiler:The Queen Mansa likely qualifies as well.]]

!!Gottn Goh
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KojiTotani

The second-in-command aboard the ''Endra'', Gottn is SurroundedByIdiots and knows it. Despite this, he demonstrates commendable loyalty to both Mashmyre and Chara, providing them both with much needed advice, and coming up with one scheme after another to take out the ''Argama''.
* BadBoss[=/=]BenevolentBoss: A bit of both. He's very devoted to the ''soldiers'' under his command, but civilians like Beecha and Mondo don't fare so well.
* BeleagueredAssistant: To Mashymyre and Kyara. He tries his best, but...
* BigOlEyebrows
* TheChewToy: Gottn has the absolute ''worst'' luck.
* CombatPragmatist: Fights far dirtier than his boss, Mashymyre - he doesn't care as much about civilian casualties, and will happily use hostages, ambushes, and human shields to further his plans.
* EvilGenius
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:He tries to blow up the Argama with [[KickTheDog a bomb smuggled aboard a crowded civilian transport]]. Cecilia [[HeroicSacrifice returns it to sender]].]]
* HypercompetentSidekick: He's a far more talented strategist and tactician than either of his commanding officers aboard the Endra, but shows commendable loyalty to them nonetheless.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Though he's much nastier and more competent than Mashymyre, it's counterbalanced by his impressive loyalty and appalling luck.
* NumberTwo: To Mashmyre and then Chara
* OnlySaneMan: On the ''Endra''. The poor, poor guy.
* SurroundedByIdiots: He does care for his men, but it's impossible to deny that they're... not exactly the brightest sparks on Axis.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Axis

!!August Gidan
!!!Voiced by: Creator/KojiTotani

A Neo-Zeon pilot assigned by Haman to keep an eye on Glemmy.
* AcePilot: He's actually rather skilled.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Seems to be of Arabic descent. Or possibly Indian. It's hard to tell.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: [[ManipulativeBastard Glemmy Toto]] views him as a self-serving bastard. Just think about that.
* IFightForTheStrongestSide: [[spoiler:Reveals this to Glemmy, though it's left up in the air whether Glemmy believes him.]]
* TheMole: A rare purely villainous example. Haman has him serve under Glemmy so she can keep an eye on him. [[spoiler:It doesn't work.]]
* SmugSnake: He oozes confidence, he makes snide remarks, he plots and schemes for his own advancement--and it all does very little for him in the end.
* TheStarscream: While nominally Glemmy's underling, he seeks to undermine him--and not just by spying on him for Haman. [[spoiler: Further, as is ultimately revealed, he isn't even loyal to Haman, and winds up offering to betray ''her'' to Glemmy.]]

!!Illia Pazom
!!!Voiced by: Kimie Sawaki

Mashmyre Cello's NumberTwo during the latter half of the series, Illia is a dedicated young woman who serves as Mashmyre's mobile suit commander, and inherits his rose when he feels he is no longer worthy of it. She seems very dedicated to him but is actually one of Haman Khan's agents, sent to keep an eye on him after his Cyber-Newtype enhancements.
* AntiVillain
* BareYourMidriff
* BecomingTheMask: Downplayed. She's loyal to the mission Haman gave her, but seems rather fond of Mashmyre nonetheless, and tries to help him be a good commander.
* CustomUniform
* DarkActionGirl
* TheDragon: To Mashmyre, who in turn, acts as Haman's.
* LightningBruiser: Her MS-14 [=ReGelgu=], which can keep up with Judau and the Double Zeta.
* TheMole: A spy for Haman.
* NumberTwo
* TheRemnant: Survives the war and goes onto join Char's Neo-Zeon.
* ShesGotLegs
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Her costume
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Just sort of disappears.
* WomanInWhite


!!!Voiced by: Yumi Mitani
--> "I musn't cry."

* TheCutie
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Miharu Ratokie]], complete with being forced by Zeon forces to do some spying, albeit she is less competent than the former. [[spoiler:They also both die trying to make amends to the damage they caused]].
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: When she discovers she's been given a bomb instead of payment, she jumps off the passenger liner she's on and latches on to an Axis mobile suit and lets it carry the bomb, and her, away from the freighter to save innocent lives.]]
* KillTheCutie
* KnightOfCerebus: The very rare non-villainous example. After her death, the series becomes more and more serious...
* TheMole: She's a spy for Neo Zeon. She gets caught and harshly called out for it. And then...]
* RedemptionEqualsDeath
* ShrinkingViolet
* TenderTears: Lampshaded by the title of her episodes: ''Tearful Cecilia''.
* TomboyishPonytail
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: Torres's.

!!Emily Ounce
!!!Voiced by: Kayoko Fujii

* ArmsDealer: She's the captain of the supplies base ''La Vie En Rose''. [[spoiler:And she dies when it's blown up.]]
* TheCaptain: Of ''La Vie En Rose''
* ClingyJealousGirl: To Bright, not knowing that he's married. She eases up on it later.
* SenselessSacrifice: [[spoiler: The ''La Vie En Rose'' isn't a warship. Challenging the Queen Mantha when Puru Two wasn't looking for a fight was nothing less than suicide.]]
* SoldiersAtTheRear: She's a supply base captain, not a field commander, and her lack of field experience trips her up when she's forced to fly a resupply mission into a combat zone.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Emily or Emaly? [[AerithAndBob This being Gundam]], both are equally likely.

[[folder:Sarasa & Rasara]]
!!Sarasa and Rasara Moon
!!!Voiced by: Creator/YurikoYamamoto

* CreepyTwins: Less than other cases, but still.
* KillTheCutie - LoveHurts: [[spoiler:Rasara dies tragically in her beloved Mondo's arms.]]
* {{Miko}}: Really weird example
* PsychicPowers: They could be Newtypes, or just examples of Moon-Moon weirdness, but either way. Sarasa in particular knows exactly who and what Haman is when she meets her.

!!Arrow Mellow

One of the African fighters of the Blue Team, fighting to drive the "French" (Europeans, and by extension the Earth Federation) out of Africa.

* AcePilot: He mows down multiple {{Mooks}} when they hit his BerserkButton, and manages to knock Elle out of the sky despite piloting a Gelgoog from the One Year War although to be fair the Gelgoog is a very high end suit from it's era and the suit Elle had is not that far away from it from it in stats and she isn't as skilled even taking into account of her being a Newtype.
* BadassNormal: Despite lacking Newtype powers of his own, he clashes against Elle, a nascent Newtype, in an aging but still very high end suit from the One Year War as the Gelgoog was on par with the original Gundam in overall stats just never having the mass production or trained pilots to make effective use of them in the one year war.
* BerserkButton: Endangering civilians, or betraying the cause of freedom.
* HeroAntagonist: While he's fighting on Zeon's side, his only goal is to free his native continent from Federation oppression. Furthermore, he is absolutely unwilling to commit or tolerate war crimes, going so far as to shoot his fellow soldiers rather than let them kill a civilian.
* OccupiersOutOfOurCountry: His motivation.
* WouldNotShootACivilian: And will shoot ''you'' if you do it.
