!AEUG (Anti-Earth Union Group)

!!Kamille Bidan
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/NobuoTobita (JP), Jonathan Lachlan-Stewart (EN), Travis Milne (EN, VideoGame/DynastyWarriorsGundam), James Beach (EN, Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3
->'''Main mecha:''' Gundam Mk-II, Zeta Gundam

->''I hate the Federation Forces, and I hate the Titans even more!''

The protagonist of ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'', Kamille is a troubled teen whose home colony became the main base for the Titans, a tyrannical military force whom he grows to resent. This culminated in him joining the AEUG to fight the Titans, believing that someone should stand up for what he believes in. Though he can be reckless and arrogant, his character is marked by compassion, and as the series progresses, he vows to stop the war, no matter the personal cost.
* AceCustom: The Zeta Gundam, built and further customized to Kamille's specifications.
* AcePilot: He becomes the AEUG's deadliest pilot rather quickly.
* {{Archenemy}}: He and Jerid hit this point and never go back.
* BackToBackBadasses: Does this with his fellow pilots a lot, especially Quattro.
* BigBrotherMentor / SternTeacher: To Katz. Unfortunately, [[TheScrappy it's]] [[TooDumbToLive Katz]].
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Fa. They fight about everything, including, but not limited to, his piloting, her piloting, the other people on the ship, who is supposed to look after Shinta and Qum, why they're involved in the war...
* BerserkButton: Don't make fun of him for having a girly-sounding name if you don't want to get into a fight...at least until around the halfway point, after which he really doesn't care.
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Fa, after [[spoiler:Four's death]].
* CharacterDevelopment: Whilst still prickly, he chills out considerably over the course of the series. He also loses his RevengeBeforeReason tendencies
* CharacterTics: Chewing on his thumbnail when under stress.
* ChickMagnet: Mostly because he's a super-Newtype, causing him to attract [[PhlebotinumGirl Phlebotinum Girls]] right and left, as well as having a more natural relationship with Fa.
* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: With Amuro. While they are both [[ReluctantHero Reluctant Heroes]], Amuro struggled more with connecting with his fellow crew members and the pressure of being their primary offensive source. Kamille meanwhile has a HairTriggerTemper and is more vocal with lashing out at those around him, compared to Amuro who would more frequently withdraw himself.
* FixFic: His fate in the compilation movies is often considered to be this by fans, embracing with Fa at the end.
* {{Foil}}: To Jerid and Scirocco. See their entries for more on that.
* ComicBookFantasyCasting: The [[http://danbooru.donmai.us/posts/138693 artwork]] for a ''Zeta'' symphonic soundtrack album turns him into Creator/MarkHamill.
* GenderBlenderName: Kamille particularly hated his feminine-sounding name[[note]]though "Camille" is technically gender neutral[[/note]] - and thus tried to assert his manhood by learning martial arts and developing a hobby in amateur mobile suit creation.
--> "''Kamille's a Man's name! '''AND I'M A MAN!'''''"
* GenerationXerox: He might have inherited the hobby in amateur mobile suit creation from his parents: both were Federation officers and among the main engineering team that designed the Titan's prototype unit, RX-178 Gundam Mk-II.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Whether it's punching Jerid in the face at the very beginning, Quattro a few times later, or even Torres the bridge crew guy for teasing him, Kamille does this a LOT.
* HotBlooded: While fighting. He's sometimes like this outside his mecha too, if angered enough, especially early on. Later he learns to control his emotions, but he still can get pretty loud if you piss him off.
* HurtingHero: He loses just about everything over the course of the series.
* {{Hypocrite}}:
** He often rants about how his enemies are murderers when they shoot down his friends, yet he has the highest kill count of anyone in show. He justifies it to himself on the basis that his targets are often wanton killers who could care less about UsefulNotes/TheLawsAndCustomsOfWar, whereas Kamille insists that he kills because he doesn't have much of a choice. If the show wasn't as [[GrayAndGreyMorality realistic with its morality]], he could have been less wrong.
** There's also the moment [[CorporalPunishment Kamille gets his ass kicked by Wong]], and Kamille has the gall to say you shouldn't use violence to get people to act the way you want. Because Kamille is truly the bastion of pacifism.
* ItsPersonal: With Jerid, especially after the Titans' pilot kills [[spoiler:Four]]. Though it still sort of dies down so it's more one-sided on Jerid's part.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Kamille can be a huge asshole, but he is very compassionate.
* JustFriends: He and Fa will claim this is what they are if you ask. [[EveryoneCanSeeIt Everyone on ship knows better]].
* LightningBruiser: The Zeta Gundam.
* LoveAtFirstSight: With Four. It's a Newtype thing.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: From the Gundam Mark II to the Zeta Gundam. He is also the first Gundam protagonist to do this (not including the novel version of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', where Amuro switches from the RX-78-2 to the G3 Gundam).
* MildlyMilitary: VERY mildly military. Kamille refuses to accept a rank in the AEUG, even when everyone else has one.
* MilitaryBrat: Both mom and dad worked for the Titans. This is probably responsible for about 95% of his problems.
* MoodSwinger: Kamille's moods are unstable at best. He can swing from happy to sad to enraged in the space of a few seconds.
* MoralMyopia: He cuts down countless opponents, but flips out and calls you a murderer if you touch one of his friends. Jerid is fond of calling him out on this.
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: French sculptress Camille Claudel -- a woman who spent [[DownerEnding the last several decades of her life institutionalized...]]
* OedipusComplex: Between his difficult feelings for his mother (whom he nevertheless wants to protect, along with every other female he comes across) and his utter contempt for his father (who asks if he's able to kill him), Kamille plays this pretty straight. And tragically. (And again with regards to Char and Reccoa.)
* ParentalAbandonment: [[spoiler:During the course of the war with the Titans, Kamille witnessed the death of both his parents, first love and friends.]]
* PsychicPowers Of course. He's a Newtype, but doesn't accept it until late in the series.
** A VERY powerful Newtype as well. The actions Kamille pulls off in the Zeta at the end of the series are completely insane, even for a Newtype, [[spoiler: such as making the Zeta totally invulnerable with a forcefield generated by the biosensor and his Newtype power, extending the Beam Saber into an energy whip that had to be at least 2 miles long, and then freezes The O in place so he can crash the Waverider straight through the cockpit.]] Take a minute to remember this is [[RealRobotGenre a Gundam series.]]
* RammingAlwaysWorks: [[spoiler:At the end of ''Zeta'', he channels the power of the dead and impales Scirocco on Zeta's waverider mode nose]].
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Quattro's Blue. [[BlatantLies Totally in keeping with their]] ColorMotifs. The same goes for Scirocco.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Kamille displays a tendency to seek revenge without thought for the consequences from the start of the series. In the first two episodes alone he attacks a member of the Titans with his fists for making an off-hand comment about how girly his name sounds, calls a Military Police officer who has him in custody a brute, attacks said officer physically when he throws something at Kamille for insulting him -- in the middle of the prison and just after his mother's lawyer comes to bail him out... And then he runs out of the prison, ignoring the chaos all around him from a crashed mobile suit and his mother's presence, to [[GrandTheftPrototype Gundamjack]] the Mk II Gundam for the purpose of "getting back" at the [=MP=] officer for having him beaten in response to being attacked. He even ends up joining the [=AEUG=] as part of his way of "getting even" with the Titans, after first menacing the aforementioned [=MP=] officer with his newly hijacked mobile suit.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: "Camille Vidan" was an early unofficial romanization widespread in the fandom. The official post-export romanisation is 'Kamille Bidan'.
* TheRival: He and Jerid have a nasty one going. It largely involves them killing one another's loved ones. Later on it becomes one sided on Jerid's part as Kamille has bigger things on his mind.
* StayInTheKitchen: Mildly. Kamille isn't especially comfortable with women going into combat, especially Fa and Reccoa (both of whom he has feelings for). He doesn't have this problem with Emma, though
** That's because Fa is a civilian girl who's barely learning how to handle herself in a mobile suit, while Reccoa ''has'' been in trouble before when in missions. On the other hand, Emma is the strongest female fighter in the whole series.
* TeenGenius: He was well-known as an amateur mecha builder before he left his colony. The dub goes so far as to suggest that he designed the Zeta Gundam himself, though that isn't quite true: what actually happened was that he saw the Hyaku-Shiki's blueprints, and noticed the unfinished transformation system[[note]]Hyaku-Shiki was originally supposed to be the transforming prototype, but its builders could never get the system working[[/note]], had a few ideas on improving it and sent a report to Anaheim's engineers, who were able to use his ideas to complete the transformable frame and build it into the Zeta. In essence he came up with the basic design concepts and the name, and Anaheim refined it into the proof-of-concept mobile suit.
* TransformingMecha: The Zeta Gundam.
* TraumaCongaLine: Starts with Kamille's mom being made a hostage and then murdered. And then his dad. And then it just gets worse from there. As the war escalates [[spoiler: pretty much every named character Kamille forms a deep bond with, save for Fa, all get killed off. Four, Sarah Rosamia, Katz, Reccoa, and Emma all pretty much die in quick succession in the winding episodes. And then, in his final push to defeat Scirocco, Kamille completely burns himself out using his Newtype abilities and suffers a complete mental breakdown.]]
* WouldHitAGirl: Ask Lila about that. Or Rosamia. Or, outside of combat, Beltorchika.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: [[SelfDemonstratingArticle It's blue.]]

!!Quattro Bajeena (Char Aznable)
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/ShuichiIkeda (Japanese), Tom Edwards (English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Rick Dias, Hyaku Shiki

->''Warriors are destined to fight as long as they live.''

A top AEUG pilot and former Zeon ace, Quattro acts as a mentor figure to Kamille and the younger MS operators in the crew.
* AcePilot: Covers for his less-than-Ace mobile suit.
* BackToBackBadasses: Does this regularly with Kamille.
* BerserkButton: While he has no love for the Zabi family, he goes completely ballistic when [[spoiler: he realizes that Haman has turned Mineva into a puppet]].
* BigBrotherMentor: He tries to mentor Kamille in this matter, although for the most part, Kamille doesn't care about his advice.
* BlatantLies: Char, who betrayed his supposed best friend Garma to his death and assassinated his superior officer Kycilia, has the gall to tell Haman that he has never betrayed anyone in his life.
* BlingBlingBang: The golden MSN-00100 Hyaku-Shiki. It's an antibeam coating.
* BloodKnight: Several characters suggest that Char enjoys fighting or that he cannot live without war.
* CantCatchUp: A mild example. He's still one of the best (if not ''the'' best) pilots in the series, but he's fairly weak for a Newtype, and ''Zeta Gundam'' is absolutely saturated with powerful Newtypes who can compete with him one-on-one and expect to win. He's still a respectable ace, but nowhere near the FinalBoss he was in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam''.
* TheChainsOfCommanding: Ultimately, in order to gain more power for the AEUG, Char is forced to compromise all of his personal principles; losing his ability to start over a new life as Quattro and [[spoiler: restoring the Zabi family to power.]]
* CharacterShilling: Happens a lot, but never to the point of InformedAttribute - he's still [[TheRedBaron the Red Comet]]. [[spoiler:Read: IJustWantToBeNormal below for the reasons to why.]]
* CharClone: While he is the original Char, the Quattro personality has become a subtype of the classic Char Clone. He's a blonde ace, favors red suits, and has a main rivalry like classic Char, but he swaps out the mask for shades, pilots a gold mech, and is more of an antihero. A number of future Char Clones borrow elements from Quattro's persona rather than classic Char.
* ClarkKenting: What his "disguise" amounts to. It works in that very few people in the Federation-controlled regions actually know what Char Aznable looked like under the mask - and certainly would never expect him to join AEUG - but even in the first episode you see people guessing that they're being attacked by the Red Comet when he still handles his mobile suits as well as he does.
* ColorMotif: One guess, three letters. His uniform, his normal suit (though it's the same shade as his last one), and his first mobile suit all comply.
* CoolShades: Part of his disguise as Quattro. ...Pretty much his ''entire'' disguise as Quattro, actually.
* CustomUniform: The AEUG doesn't exactly have strict rules, but Char's still the only one walking around in bright red. His sunglasses and sleeveless jacket are almost as iconic as his cape, mask, helmet and gold trim of before. He also has another salmon-pink normal suit.
* CyberCyclops: PlayedStraight with the Rick Dias, but Averted for the Hyaku Shiki (It was initially designed to be a Gundam after all). It's the only Char suit, in the main cartoon canon at least, to not be a mono-eye. It allows the suit to stand out from the rest of Char's more sinister looking antagonist suits, which is fitting for his AntiHero status.
* EnemyMine: He and Amuro still don't get along, but realize that their differences can wait. Their famous rivalry simmers down considerably during this period.
* FantasticRacism: While not overt about it, Char's interpretation of the Rhetoric of Zeon has some shades of this. Some of his statements about Earthlings seem to imply he views them as having an inherent malice to them stemming in part from their birthplace. In series it's very clear he views the Titans as evil because of their actions rather than where they were born, but in his [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack next appearance]] this becomes a major part of his characterization.
* FlawedPrototype: The Hyaku-Shiki was ''supposed'' to be the [[TransformingMecha transforming]] Delta Gundam, but the technicians couldn't make the Wave Rider mode work properly. As is, it's still a high-end mobile suit that Quattro can control like his own arms and legs, but it's his skill alone that manages to keep him alive in the the thing, considering how much higher everything he goes against is on the tech scale.
* {{Foil}}: To Bask Om - both are veterans of the One Year War, both are in positions of power in their respective organizations, and both primarily appear wearing eyewear. However, Quattro learns not to hold grudges from that time period, as evident by the fact that he fights alongside members of White Base (even Amuro, despite the fact that neither have gotten over Lalah Sune); Bask, on the other hand, is never given a reason for his ColonelKilgore elements in the show[[note]]while [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary materials]] give him a reason, no reason is given in Zeta[[/note]]. Also notable that even at [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack his worst]], Quattro is still nowhere near as bad as Bask.
* FourIsDeath: [[CaptainObvious Quattro means "four".]] In a more meta sense, it's also the fourth name the character has gone by.
** [[spoiler:Subverted. Quattro is alive and kicking after the end. He only dies in the movie after he goes back to Char.]]
* FragileSpeedster: The Hyaku-Shiki is fast, maneuverable, and well-armed, and its anti-beam coating ''should'' make it resistant to beam weaponry. Yet the show repeatedly demonstrates that it simply doesn't have the durability of other {{Super Prototype}}s, like the Zeta Gundam, The O, and the Qubeley, and it is frequently manhandled at close ranges; the impression is that anyone less than a legendary One Year War veteran wouldn't last very long in it. Although when you consider that [[AllThereInTheManual the Hyaku-Shiki was to be a]] TransformingMecha as the Delta Gundam (see SuperPrototype below), [[TheWorfEffect he was just probably shortchanged]].
* GoodIsNotNice: While he's doing his best to be a good guy in this series, Char's LackOfEmpathy leads him to be a major {{Jerkass}} and it really doesn't help that the Federation keeps proving how useless and corrupt it is. Still, it's only towards the end of the show that he starts acting in ways that foreshadow ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char's Counterattack]]'' at all.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Char was last seen attempting a [[TakingYouWithMe mutual kill]] against Haman in the final stages of the Gryps Conflict. He fails - they both survive]].
* {{Hypocrite}}: Whether it's lecturing Amuro on getting over Lalah, getting mad at Haman for manipulating a member of the Zabi family, or being outraged by Axis-Zeon's treachery, Char spends most of the show calling people out on things he has no right to call them out on. Although if you will consider the next trope, it probably makes sense that [[ThatManIsDead he was trying to distinguish himself as "Quattro" from his time as "Char."]]
* IJustWantToBeNormal: He's way happier as a battlefield pilot and BigBrotherMentor for the AEUG than a political figure - which is a bit of a problem for everyone else, since as the Red Comet ''and'' the son of Zeon Deikun, he'd be a really ''useful'' political figure. In fact, Haman outright hates him for it. The last handful of episodes show Char's frustration at not being allowed to go out and fight, as by this point he has become the AEUG's de facto leader. [[spoiler: No wonder he went off the deep end as of ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char's Counterattack]]''.]]
** At the same time, he clearly feels that someone has to do it, and is being crushed by having to be that someone.
* {{Jerkass}}: Even here, at his very best, Char is still kind of a jackass.
* LackOfEmpathy: Downplayed. As he points out to Kamille, just because he's older doesn't mean that he necessarily knows anything about emotions. He's better than he used to be, but that's not saying much. A lot of the things "Quattro" says make more sense when you realize that he's a man without empathy trying to pretend he does.
* NoSympathy: Even when attempting to empathise with people, "Quattro" at best manages to hit this trope, acknowledging why they feel the way they do, and still not caring or responding appropriately.
* ObliviousToLove: Due to his LackOfEmpathy, Quattro tends not to realize when women are in love with him, and brushes their feelings aside without even noticing how much he's hurting them. This makes him a couple of enemies (Haman, Reccoa).
* OpenSecret: Quattro's true identity being Char. As explained below, if people aren't outright aware, they are extremely suspicious. [[TheRival Amuro]] is the only person who refuses to humor him on this and calls him Char in all their conversations (he does, however, do him the courtesy of referring to him as "Lt. Quattro" when speaking to ''other'' people). When [[{{Yandere}} Haman Karn]] openly names Quattro as Char, Kamille snarks that at that point it's not much of a secret.
* PaperThinDisguise: Quattro's shades, in general. The fact that his AEUG uniform is also carrying the same color scheme as his Zeon outfit emphasizes it further.
** Somewhat [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that there are only two (living) people in the entire universe who actually saw what Char looked like under the mask. (Although probably more knew what he sounded like)
** Even then, it's implied that most people in the AEUG know who he really is, but keep quiet since he isn't admitting it himself.
** Bright Noa accidentally cuts through his disguise almost immediately, as he refers to him as Captain Quattro on instinct (Captain was Char's rank in the Zeon military). Char corrects him by saying his rank is Lieutenant.
* PetTheDog: Zeta was the most sympathetic Char's been portrayed and over the course of the series many of his more positive traits are highlighted like his patience and honorable aspirations.
** During the attack on Jaburo, Bright takes him aside and asks Quattro to try and see if he can find Mirai and the rest of Bright's family. Quattro agrees and does make a point to see if he can after they've captured the base but ultimately he doesn't find them.
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Kamille's Red. {{Irony}} turned UpToEleven. Red to Haman's Blue.
* ScarsAreForever: He now has a scar on his forehead, between his eyebrows, from a climactic SwordFight with Amuro in the last show. The head wound was saved from being fatal by his old mask. The large Eighties-style sunglasses that he has to replace the mask tend to hide most of the scar. The fact that it ''is'' forever and that Char does nothing about it tend to point to it as more-than-something of a MarkOfShame.
* SecretIdentity: Casval Rem Deikun, arguably Edouard Mass, ''and'' Char Aznable. He keeps racking them up.
* TheSociopath: Downplayed as compared to ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' or ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char's Counterattack]]'', but it's not like a personality disorder is the sort of thing that goes away. His limited emotional affect is on full display, his LackOfEmpathy is practically crippling at times (and called out repeatedly by Kamille), and he remains a self-confessed BloodKnight and a SecretIdentity guy who can't help the self-glorification with flashy mobile suits and ridiculous {{Custom Uniform}}s.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Quattro's last name has many romanisations, including but not limited to Bajeena/Bagina/Vagina/Vageena/Vajeena. The Gundam Perfect Files, which are usually a good source on proper romanisations (particularly for Gundam series that have not been licensed in America) spells it as Vageena. For obvious reasons, English speaking fans refer to him as Quattro Bajeena, which is Bandai Entertainment's chosen romanisation.
* SpoilerOpening: Even before it is explicitly confirmed in the story, the narrator always refers to Quattro as Char. The ending credits don't even bother, either, just saying "Char Aznable".
* SuperPrototype: The Hyaku-Shiki (It apparently began life as the MSN-001 Delta Gundam as detailed in ''[[AllThereInTheManual Mobile Suit Variations]]'', supposed to have its own Wave Rider mode prior to the Zeta — hence the verniers at its back. However, because said mechanics wouldn't have been practical or even worked at the time, what they finished building was reworked into was turned into the Hyaku-Shiki. The concept was revisited in the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn Delta+]]).
* SunglassesAtNight: In space, as opposed to at night, though he removes them when he needs to wear a normal/pilot suit helmet.
* TakingYouWithMe: [[spoiler:Tries it on Haman Khan. They both survive.]]
* ThemeNaming: Quattro is the fourth name [[RedBaron The Red Comet]] has used, after Casval Rem Deikun, Edouard Mass and Char Aznable.
* TooLongDidntDub: His mobile suit is still called the Hyaku Shiki even in English translations instead of the "Type 100". Justified [[AllThereInTheManual in supplementary materials]], as the scientist who designed it was Japanese (specifically a {{Tuckerization}} of Mamoru Nagano).
* UnfortunateNames: His name is sometimes romanized as 'Quattro Bagina'. And considering the letter B in Japanese is sometimes romanized as a V... you get the idea. It is actually romanized as "Quattro Vagina" in the [=PS1=] Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack game ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3fLdd-nQdU proven here]]) as well as the SD Gundam G-Generation series.
* WaveMotionGun: The Mega-Bazooka.

!!Fa Yuiry
!!! Voice Actors: Miyuki Matsuoka, Creator/SatomiArai (Japanese), Angie Beers (English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Methuss

Kamille's best friend in his home colony, Fa joins up with the AEUG after they save the escape pod she was in. Determined to prove herself to Kamille and the rest of the AEUG she undergoes pilot training to try and stay useful.
* ActionSurvivor: The mecha anime equivalent. She doesn't score any brilliant kills, or [[TookALevelInBadass take a level in badass]], or anything like that, but she survives ''Zeta'', which is a victory in and of itself.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Alternates between this and DoggedNiceGirl with regards to Kamille. It's easier to count the times when they aren't fighting about something.
* CantCatchUp: She tries ''very'' hard, but the Methuss... well, sucks when compared to other units. (Its main problem is that, while it's an okay Mobile Armor in terms of mobility - meaning it's a good scout - its Mobile Suit form is lousy.)
** This becomes a plot point in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'', where the inability of the AEUG to repair the Methuss and her increasing friction with Judau's more relaxed posse [[spoiler:leads her to [[PutOnABus pretty much taking an enforced leave of absence]] from the AEUG]].
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: With Kamille, eventually, after Kamille recovers from loving and losing Four, and the aftermath of what Scirocco did to him. [[spoiler:Even the 2006 compilation movies end with her and Kamille embracing in the void of space after surviving the Gryps Conflict.]]
* ClingyJealousGirl: A mild example. She's certainly very suspicious anytime Kamille talks to another girl. Most pronounced with Rosamia and her delusion that Kamille is her elder brother. Fa is clearly annoyed by Rosamia, but she also seems to realize that Kamille's interest in Rosamia has nothing to do with romance, and doesn't do much to interfere.
* [[DoggedNiceGuy Dogged Nice Girl]]: To Kamille. It's not that he doesn't notice her, it's just that there's a lot of other stuff going on in his life right now.
* {{Expy}}: A more childish version of Frau Bow--her relationship with Kamille even mimics the one that Frau had with Amuro, with '''way''' more arguing and less support, albeit with a different ending.
* FirstGirlWins: Notable, as Kamille doesn't love her anywhere near as much as he loved Four. But because Four died and Kamille was mind-crushed by Scirocco she ended up taking care of him. (The last shot of the movie implies that it's much more mutual than that.)
* FlawedPrototype: The Methuss can transform from a MA with decent mobility, into a lousy MS. The transformation itself is simple and quick, and the unit itself is less a combat-ready MS than a proof-of-concept for effective movable frame transformation; as if to prove this, it's apparently very easy to repair and maintain (which would facilitate flight data accumulation and recovery). It is underarmed and underpowered, but fixing those results in a decent MS, and its descendants are average to good units.[[note]]See the [=ReZEL=] series which debuted in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn''[[/note]] It's a little unfair that Fa's piloting isn't mentioned more, as she survived the Grypes Conflict in the Methuss.
* JustFriends: She and Kamille will both claim this is what they are.
* LoveMartyr: To a degree, following Kamille and putting up with him when nobody else will.
* PantyShot: She's the only one who normally doesn't wear pants, and in zero-g, that means she gets an upskirt shot whenever the camera feels like it.
%%* PluckyGirl
* ShesGotLegs: The ED features her running alongside Haro, letting her show off a part of long and shapely legs.
* TeamMom: She more or less adopts Shinta and Qum and does her best to try to keep Kamille (and to a lesser extent Katz) stable.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type B/deredere.

!!Emma Sheen
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/MayaOkamoto (Japanese), Lisa Christie (English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Rick Dias, Gundam Mk-II, Super Gundam

A former Titans' pilot, Emma defected to the AEUG after realising what sort of people she was working for. She is close to Kamille and Captain Bekkener, and serves as a substitute mother to Katz Kobayashi, whom she does her best to keep out of trouble.
* AcePilot: One of the most skilled female pilots in the franchise.
* ActionGirl: In any of her Mobile Suits, Emma can put up a pretty good fight.
* ArmorPiercingSlap: Delivered to Kamille, more often than not. She also memorably slapped Fa ''twice'' in the same scene.
* CoolBigSis: To Kamille and Fa.
* DefectorFromDecadence: Originally part of the Titans; switched sides after learning how much of a group of evil bastards the Titans were.
* DesignatedGirlFight: [[spoiler:With Reccoa.]]
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Only develops her Newtype abilities well after her credentials as an ace have been established.
* HeelFaceTurn: Episode 4. She starts to really see how [[IHaveYourWife fucked-up]] the Titans are in episode 3.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Henken towers over her.
* KilledOffForReal: By Yazan Gable, following [[spoiler:her battle with Reccoa.]]
* LadyOfWar: She remains graceful while fighting.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: Becomes the regular pilot of the Gundam Mark II following Kamille's promotion to the Zeta.
* OfficialCouple: With Captain Bekkener.
* OnlySaneMan: Often. Out of all the cast members she's easily the one who grabs the IdiotBall the least.
* ParentalSubstitute: To Katz while they are at the front.
* PsychicPowers: Demonstrates the ability to sense powerful Newtypes, even at a distance, and can also sense the deaths caused by a gas attack on a colony.
* StateSec: For about two minutes.
%%* TeamMom
* VasquezAlwaysDies: The most competent female pilot in the show (barring the villainous Haman Khan). Often contrasted with the more feminine Fa, she ends up dead while Fa survives.
* TheWorfEffect: When Jerid and Mouar unveil the new Gabthley suits, Emma is the unlucky established badass that gets soundly beaten to show off how powerful the pair are. Her Rick Dias is scrapped and she's reduced to an escape pod which Kamille and a Nemo manage to rescue.

!!Henken Bekkener
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/JurotaKosugi (Japanese--''debut'' role), Dave Pettitt (English)

The captain of the ''Argama'' and then the ''Radish'', Henken Bekkener forms close friendships with Kamille Biden, Emma Sheen, and the rest of the AEUG pilots. Like Emma, he is often a voice of reason among the AEUG leadership.
* {{Adorkable}}: Normally Henken's a very calm person, but when he tries putting the moves on Emma Sheen he immediately heads straight into this territory.
* BadassBeard: Combined with BadassMoustache.
* CannotSpitItOut: His early attempts at hitting on Emma inevitably end up like this.
%%* TheCaptain
* DoggedNiceGuy: To Emma.
%%* GeniusBruiser
%%* GentleGiant
* TheGoodCaptain: Whether he is as competent as Bright is debatable, but he definetly has the same determination to win the war and protect his men.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: With Emma.
* KilledOffForReal: By Yazan Gable.
* LargeAndInCharge: One of the tallest characters in ''Zeta'', and also TheCaptain.
* OfficialCouple: He and Emma have come to an understanding by the end of the series.
* OnlySaneMan: Shares this role with Emma, acting as a rational adult on a team of otherwise childish screw-ups.
* SenselessSacrifice: Gets himself and his ship [[spoiler:blown up to save Emma. She dies soon afterwards.]]
%%* TeamDad

!!Reccoa Londe
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/MasakoKatsuki (Japanese), Meredith Taylor-Parry (English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Methuss, Palace Athena

A pilot aboard the ''Argama'', Reccoa Londe suffers from a massive inferiority complex, which sabotages her effectiveness on numerous occasions. She's eventually captured by Yazan and defects to Scirocco.
* AcePilot: While she's not a match for the real aces, she's not actually a ''bad'' pilot, and even manages to pull Kamille's fat out of the fire while piloting the Methuss (which is not exactly a top-grade mobile suit). [[spoiler: After her FaceHeelTurn, she becomes a genuinely dangerous opponent.]]
* AllAmazonsWantHercules: Her characterisation boils down to "I want a strong man, I want a strong man. There must be one around here somewhere."
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: 'The Call Of Darkness' implies this to be [[MoreThanMindControl part of]] [[spoiler:the reason for her FaceHeelTurn.]]
* CoolBigSis: Gives this vibe at first.
* DoesNotLikeMen: Spouts this sort of rhetoric after [[spoiler:her FaceHeelTurn]], while still complaining about her need to find a "strong" man and be fullfilled as a woman. It's pretty pathetic. ([[FridgeBrilliance And likely, that's the point.]])
* EvenEvilHasStandards: She was VERY happy to [[spoiler:get rid of Bask]].
* EvilCounterpart: [[spoiler: To Emma Sheen]]
* EvilRedhead: After [[spoiler:joining Scirocco.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: She eventually [[spoiler:joins Scirocco.]]
* GloryHound: Reccoa's obsessed with looking good and having the respect of those around her.
* InformedAbility: Is supposed to be a superb spy, but gets captured easily at least twice.
* InHarmsWay: "I guess I don't feel alive unless I'm living on the edge."
* KilledOffForReal: If she wasn't dead after Emma defeated her, [[spoiler:she certainly was when Yazan destroyed her mobile suit.]]
%%* LoveMakesYouEvil
* MoralMyopia: Accuses Char of being a SelfishEvil creep who thinks the world revolves around him. She's not wrong, but given her own behavior it's damned funny. And then there's her constantly expecting [[spoiler:special treatment from the ''Argama'' crew whenever she attacks them, while being totally unwilling to do the same.]]
* MoralityPet: [[spoiler: After switching sides, Reccoa still has a hard time facing Kamille in combat.]]
* PsychicPowers: [[spoiler: Displays Newtype abilities shortly after her defection, saving the ''Alexandria'' from Quattro's Mega-Bazooka.]]
* RapeAsBackstory: Implied in the second-to-last episode. It certainly would put quite the spin on [[spoiler:her FamousLastWords. Especially since it doesn't explain her total lack of any evident dislike towards men prior to meeting Scirocco.]]
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: More of a case of Death Equals Redemption [[spoiler:as it actually happens after her death. Her spirit, without hesitation, joins Emma, Lyla, Rosamia, Four and all of the other women who saw something special in Kamille's heart. They lend him strength to defeat Scirocco. With her death, Scirocco no longer has a hold on her. So it's reasonable that Reccoa, in spirit, reverted back to her former self.]]
* SixthRanger: To [[spoiler:the Titans and Scirocco's crew in particular.]]
* SmallNameBigEgo: Reccoa's not a ''bad'' pilot, but the opinion of her piloting skill is truly inflated.
* StreetUrchin: She was one before joining the AEUG.
* TeamMom: Before her issues started putting her relationship with the other pilots in jeopardy. Completely subverted with her FaceHeelTurn.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:After defecting to Scirocco.]]
* WomanScorned: Her reason for hating Char as much as she does.

!!Katz Kobayashi
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/KeiichiNanba, Creator/DaisukeNamikawa (Japanese), Sean Broadhurst (English)
->'''Main mecha:''' G-Defenser

One of the three war orphans adopted by the ''White Base'' in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', Katz eventually joins the AEUG in the hopes of following in the footsteps of his adopted father, and his hero, Amuro Ray.
* AlliterativeName: It is now. His birth name according to AllThereInTheManual was Katz Hawin.
* AscendedExtra: Was one of the three orphans on the ''White Base'' in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam''. Here he's a major supporting character.
%%* BeadyEyedLoser
%%* BrattyHalfPint
* ChekhovsGun: Amuro's gun!
* ColorMotif: His AEUG uniform is green. He wore green on ''White Base''. He's also the VERY 'green' rookie.
* DatingCatwoman: He and Sarah have a mutual attraction, though it's far stronger on his end.
* HappilyAdopted: By Frau and Hayato, along with his now-brother and sister Letz and Kikka. He loves them, but unfortunately he thinks going to war is what 15-year-olds do.
* HeroWorshipper: He used to be like this towards Amuro, but the latter's [[ShellShockedVeteran shellshock]] turn him into a BrokenPedestal. However, when Amuro decides to sortie out in the Rick Dias, Katz goes right back to idolizing him.
* HotBlooded: To ridiculously stupid degrees.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: By Yazan Gable. [[HeroKiller Noticing a pattern here]]?]]
* LoveMakesYouDumb: His crush on Sarah seriously impairs his judgement. We get that you like her Katz, and it's not bad in itself... but dude, she works for [[BigBad Scirocco]]. Stop helping her and move on.
* PsychicPowers: A weak Newtype.
* SkintoneSclerae: Same as when he was a little kid. He's changed so much since, it's one of the few ways of identifying him.
%%* TeensAreShort
* TookALevelInJerkass: The kids were bratty in the original show, but not to this level.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: Less dark and more [[spoiler:tragic]] pain in the neck, but in MSG Katz was the cautious "big brother" of the {{Tagalong Kid}}s and actually the ''least'' bratty and hotheaded of the three. Things seem to have completely reversed in the interval.

!!Bright Noa
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/HirotakaSuzuoki[[note]]The third movie compilation was, unfortunately, his very last[[/note]] (Japanese), Dave Kelly (English)

The captain of the ''White Base'' during the One Year War, Bright joins up with the AEUG out of disgust with the Titans. Due to his experiences with Amuro in ''MSG'' he has a pretty solid idea of what to expect from Kamille.
* TheCaptain: It's Bright Noa, what else could he be?
* TheComicallySerious: Whenever he gets ''too'' serious about running his crew, something happens to take away his dignity; the kids are especially good for that.
* CryCute: When he watches a tape [[spoiler:that has a loving message from his wife and children.]]
* DefectorFromDecadence: Decides to join the AEUG after realizing that the Titans were becoming just as bad as Zeon.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: As the former trope namer this is to be expected of Bright. He's also on the receiving end of some less than sympathetic variants from the likes of Bask.
* HappilyMarried: To Mirai, the pilot of the ''White Base''.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Bright is still an uptight bastard most of the time. He's also got the safety of his crew as his top priority.
%%* OlderAndWiser
* PsychicPowers: Has low-level Newtype abilities from serving on White Base.
%%* ReasonableAuthorityFigure

!!Apolly Bay
!!! Voice Actors: Hiroyuki Shibamoto (Japanese), Creator/ToruOkawa (Japanese, movie), Scott Roberts (English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Rick Dias

A former Zeon pilot who finds employ with the AEUG. A man of few words, he acts as the leader of the Rick Diases, and racks up a fair number of kills, despite rarely being onscreen, forming something of a friendship with Kamille in the process.
* AcePilot: Apolly was a Zeon ace during the One Year War, and he earns his stripes again in this one, downing an impressive number of Titans' suits despite his rare appearances.
* AscendedExtra: Apolly and Roberto have a larger role in ''Char's Deleted Affair''. In fact, it's revealed that both of them were under Char's command back in the One Year War.
* AudienceSurrogate: And often ends up voicing what the fans are thinking as well
* BigDamnHeroes He does this surprisingly often for a minor character, [[spoiler:but he gets extra points for doing it once in the brand new Zeta Gundam]]
* DeadpanSnarker: One of his few personality traits that does shine through. He's constantly snarking, whether about Kamille and Fa, the stupidity of the situation, or even Mineva Zabi's entrance.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: At the hands of Jerid Messa in Episode 45.]]
* MauveShirt: Leads the Rick Dias, making him the heroic equivalent of an EliteMook.
* MookLieutenant: Heroic example, as leader of the Rick Dias.
* NiceGuy: He might be a quippy former Zeon pilot, but Apolly is very friendly and easy to get along with.
%%* RidiculouslyAverageGuy
%%* TakingTheBullet: For Fa.
* ThoseTwoGuys: He and his partner Roberto are this in the first few episodes. Then Roberto dies, and Apolly graduates to MauveShirt status.


!!! Voice Actors: Kôzô Shioya (Japanese), Tommy James (English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Rick Dias

A former Zeon pilot who works with the AEUG. Roberto was one of the Rick Dias pilots alongside Apolly.
* AnArmAndALeg: His Rick Dias loses an arm to one of the Titan GM's during their first attempt to steal the Gundam MK II. It's repaired after the battle.
* BadassMustache: A cool mustache in contrast to the clean-shaven Apolly. Roberto's also a talented AEUG Ace and takes down a number of Titan and Federation Mobile Suits.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:He dies defending a shuttle with Apolly and many other AEUG pilots from Buran's Federation Squad. Apolly and the others make it, but Roberto is shot in the back by Buran's Asshimar and killed]].
* ImprovisedWeapon: When fighting a bunch of Federation HI-Zacks, Roberto takes off one of his Rick Dias's fuel tanks and hurls it at one and then detonates it with the laser pistols on his back.
* SatelliteCharacter: Roberto largely revolves around Quattro and Apolly. While he and Apolly often appeared together, Apolly tended to speak and be characterized much more.
* ThoseTwoGuys: He and Apolly are this, often being the two named background pilots who would accompany the leads with back-up. Though when together, Apolly got more screen time and lines.

[[folder:Shinta & Qum]]
!!Shinta and Qum
* BrattyHalfPint: Two of them! They're as annoying or worse than the trio from ''MSG''.
* CharacterDevelopment: Minor, They seem a ''small'' bit more mature and self-reliant in ZZ compared to Zeta. [[spoiler: Hell, one time they were the first ones to find out that Beecha and Mondo planned to kill Judau with bombs and tried to warn him and everyone but no body believe them at first. When the plan failed, they were the first to actively scold them for nearly getting Judau killed.]]
* Creator/ChikaSakamoto: Shinta
* TheLoad: Are actively in the way much of the time. Whether it's annoying the engineers, running away, or trying to steal the Methuss they are constantly underfoot.
* SmallAnnoyingCreature: The opinion of everyone who has to put up with them. Only Fa seems immune.


!!Hayato Kobayashi
!!! Voice Actors: Kiyonobu Suzuki, Creator/NobuyukiHiyama (Japanese), C. Adam Leigh (English)

Formerly a Federation pilot of the ''White Base'', he now serves as the field commander and general leader of Karaba on Earth, who lends the AEUG much-needed manpower and firepower in their stints on Earth.
* AdoptivePeerParent: To Katz, Letz, and Kikka, the trio of orphaned children from ''White Base''. Kamille comments on how this makes him Katz's AbsurdlyYouthfulFather.
* BadassBaritone: Surprisingly enough.
* BettyAndVeronicaSwitch: Hayato's the hardworking, well-meaning, simple, down-to-earth guy who married Frau to help her give three orphans a home and a family. Amuro's rich, famous, handsome, glamorous, dangerous, brooding and problematic. [[TragicMistake Then Hayato does something very, very stupid.]] And the show makes it clear her old best friend [[FirstLove Amuro's]] [[TragicFlaw got something to do with it]].
* BrightSlap: Even with StoutStrength, it has about [[SarcasmMode as much effect on Katz as the touted original did]] on Amuro.
* BystanderSyndrome: The ''MobileSuitZetaGundamDayAfterTomorrow'' manga suggests that Hayato originally had this mentality, in spite of being aware of the Federation growing more corrupt and crooked. [[spoiler:After a very heated argument with Kai, he eventually wound up becoming the leader of Karaba]].
* TheCaptain: Of the ''Audhumla''. He's the overall leader of Karaba, though, so he's referred to in the English dub as "Director Hayato".
%%* TheGoodCaptain
* TheLancer: Hayato's Karaba to the AEUG, in terms of operation leadership.
* TheLeader: Of the Karaba forces.
* MarriageOfConvenience: WordOfGod as to why he and Frau got married.
* OlderAndWiser: Age has apparently improved Hayato, who's seemingly the most stable cast member. Then massively subverted dealing with Katz...
* ParentalAbandonment: Inverted and played straight. Thinks it's a perfectly normal thing to let his idiotic teenager run off to a war in space. (Over both his wife's explicit protests ''and'' the [[WhatAnIdiot ample opportunity to keep him with Karaba and under his own supervision]].)
* StepfordSmiler: Hayato previously showed an ability to work with Amuro for a long time while still being TheResenter. There's not much reason to believe things actually changed.
* TookALevelInBadass: Hayato now looks physically much more imposing, is the leader of an entire paramilitary force, and is effectively Amuro's boss. Unfortunately for things like a TragicMistake and WhatAnIdiot, he seems to have taken a corresponding [[TookALevelInDumbass level in Dumbass]] as well.
* TragicFlaw: Carries over from the previous show. His remnant insecurity and [[spoiler:issues with Amuro leads to getting both his son and then himself killed]] over the course of this show and the next.
** [[spoiler:Sending Katz to the AEUG]] is a TragicMistake. Yes, it's all pretty much structured like a huge classical {{tragedy}}.
* TriangRelations: There's a conversation between Hayato and Amuro that seems to have no purpose except to point out Hayato still believes her FirstLove has a lot of influence. Not to mention that Frau seeing him was [[WhatAnIdiot apparently Hayato's idea]]. It's enough to make your head hurt.
* UglyGuyHotWife: Hayato's barely five feet tall and still no looker, but it's what he does with Katz that makes the difference particularly egregious. Not that we ever see them together.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The only former ''White Base'' crew member not shown at the end of the third movie, probably because the above-mentioned TragicMistake is still the same.

!!Amuro Ray
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/ToruFuruya (Japanese), Creator/MatthewErickson (English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Rick Dias, Dijeh

->''People end up repeating the same mistakes.''

Pilot of the original Gundam during the One Year War, Amuro has gone into semi-retirement in order to deal with his post-traumatic stress disorder. He eventually returns to action, and forms a brief, but close partnership with Kamille.
* AceCustom: After returning into action with a red custom Rick Dias (basically the AEUG's EliteMook mobile suit), he gets the MSK-008 Dijeh (which has both the Zeon-ic aesthetics of their mobile suits while maintaining a Federation/Gundam-ish coloring).
** In at least two side-stories Amuro gets his own custom White Zeta Gundam, officially designated MSZ-006-3.
* AcePilot: He's Amuro Ray. Smashing a transport freighter into a ''mobile suit'' is just the start of it.
* AchillesInHisTent: This is where Amuro starts; as in -- and '''due to''' -- ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', he's ''still'' doing this, and continues to angrily sulk in his room and hesitate for a bit even after he breaks out to join the fight. (Char points out that by doing so, he's helping the Titans.)
* AntiHero: Same as he ever was; both not wanting to fight and being quite violent, wanting recognition and isolating himself; etc, etc. Anyone expecting him to be unambiguously heroic is disappointed.
* AnywhereButTheirLips: Frau Bow. Almost immediately subverted by Beltochika, at which point Amuro looks [[NoGuyWantsToBeChased noticeably shocked.]]
* BettyAndVeronica: For this particular redhead, Frau is still his sweet, mature, deeply loving best friend. Newcomer Beltorchika is a sexy girl with ... [[BitchInSheepsClothing attitude issues.]] Turns into a BettyAndVeronicaSwitch when you realize how childish Bel is and remember Frau's married. Unsurprisingly, he doesn't appear to choose by the end of the third movie.
** He's also now Veronica for Frau with regards to Hayato. And then there's '''another''' switch.
* BigBrotherMentor: During the Hong Kong arc, Amuro sort-of takes Char's place as Kamille's mentor, as Char goes back to space.
* BigDamnHeroes: Hitting the Asshimar with a precision-strike [[spoiler:''cargo freighter'']]. DoubleSubverted with Mirai and her children in New Hong Kong -- Amuro initially trying this just gets himself captured and them placed in jeopardy on a battlefield, but he ends up [[spoiler:saving a drowning Hathaway's life]] and getting everyone to safety, anyway.
* BrokenPedestal: Katz and to a lesser degree Kamille do not take their idol's [[ShellShockedVeteran shellshock]] well.
* ChickMagnet: Amuro's [[SheIsAllGrownUp all grown up]], rich, and famous -- and Frau's [[OldFlame still in love with him]], Beltochika's now [[ClingyJealousGirl superglued to his arm trying to embody the "magnet" part]], and Stephanie [[LoveAtFirstPunch more-or-less tells Hayato to give him her number]]. Kamille even asks Four if she's "an Amuro fan", saying he'd be jealous. (Way to go, [[IncrediblyLamePun 0079]].)
* DestructiveRomance: Good for his combat capabilities. Not good for anything else. [[IncrediblyLamePun Caught in a bad one]] with Bel.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: WordOfGod says that all of [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Amuro's pacing in his backyard]] has less to do with Katz getting on his nerves and more to do with [[MomentKiller Katz getting in the way]]. With Frau.
* EnemyMine: ''"To me, he'll always be Char Aznable, and no one else."'' He manages to cooperate with him as "Quattro".
* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: Beltorchika thought he'd look more warlike. Not that she minds.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: In this installment, it's him in Hong Kong vs. a lot of guys working security for the Luio Company.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Amuro eventually becomes the Field Leader of Karaba, an Earth-based Resistance movement.
* HesBack: First one: avoiding government agents and then ramming a mobile suit with a transport. His true one is when he pilots the Rick Dias and is able to adapt to the seven years advanced technology and hits Hi-Zacks through a thick fog.
%%* KnightInSourArmor
%%* OlderAndWiser
* OutOfFocus: A product of the series mostly following AEUG's exploits in Space, and Amuro being the Field Leader of the ''Earth''-based resistance. Amuro still makes it out pretty good however, getting several string of spotlight episodes.
* PsychicPowers: He can pick up what Four is trying to say more clearly than Kamille.
* RetiredBadass: Was this initially, than he hijacks a transport freighter...
* ShellShockedVeteran: He's been suffering for years from a combination of PTSD, government-induced paranoia, and his own tendencies to brood and isolate. Feels quite justified at RefusingTheCall this time, except he has a very hard time explaining the dangers of war to people like Katz and Kamille.
* ShipTease: The usual with Frau, to the point of having her with him and Bel at the end of the compilation movies. And there's an episode's worth with Stephanie Luio.
* SternTeacher: Double subverted. Amuro's moody and gripes about Kamille's fighting style and tactics, but compared to [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan almost every adult Kamille's encountered so far]], Amuro's pretty easy on him. Then [[spoiler: he ends up sending him back to space at mobile suit gunpoint]]. Hey, guess it's not a slap…
* StillGotIt: ''"This isn't a runway!"'' (Katz). That, or being able to mentally calculate how to take down a mobile armor with a freighter and the exact moment to bail from that plane, all without breaking a sweat.
* TookALevelInBadass: Who needs a Gundam? Between his cargo plane hijackings or further attempts to make a one-man action movie [[spoiler:rescuing Mirai and her family]], Amuro is frequently more interesting to watch ''without'' an MS.
* TradeYourPassionForGlory: {{Invoked}} very loudly by [[TheScrappy Katz]] at the beginning, a few years after ''Rocky III'' came out in RealLife. {{Deconstructed}} in that Amuro's suffering from depression, PTSD, and government surveillance more than he's coasting on his laurels, and while he may have an ostensibly safe and cushy life, he hates both it '''and''' the thought of any fighting, past or potential.
* TroubledButCute: The "cute" part is subjective (Beltorchika certainly thinks so), but the "troubled" is undeniable.

!!Beltorchika Irma
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/MariaKawamura (Japanese), Onalea Gilbertson (English)

A young pilot who joins the ''Audhumla'' as a liaison from the AEUG and takes a rapidly-escalating romantic interest in the famous Amuro.
%%* ActionGirl: She's a competent pilot and gunner and has no qualms about filming a battle raging right above her head.
* BettyAndVeronica: Looks and acts like the Veronica to Amuro, but she's actually the far more-easily available, "less complicated" one.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Shows up and appears to be brave and bold, hopeful, helpful, and thoughtful. It might be a DestructiveRomance, but then spending the majority of her screentime being obtuse and abrasive, crying, and fighting with everyone around her about a guy she's just met does nothing to prove she's ''not'' this trope, either.
* CelebCrush: Overlapping with HeroWorship. Amuro is a well-known war hero in-universe.
* CharacterDevelopment: Later in the series, she has changed for the better and acknowledges how childish she used to be. Quite the growth for a ClingyJealousGirl.
* ClingyJealousGirl: She's clingy yet has no real love rival. She's just jealous of anything else taking Amuro's interest.
* DestructiveRomance: She and Amuro reinforce some very mutually unhealthy tendencies. {{Lampshaded}} by Kamille as ''"that man and that woman, licking each other's wounds.''" (Four: "Sick, huh?" Kamille: "Yeah.")
* {{Fangirl}}: Even to the point of PervertedSniffing. And meeting Amuro does nothing good for her temperament.
* {{Foil}}: Frau Bow, especially considering how they're shown in sequential episodes. They're both orphans from the One Year War with intense interest in Amuro, but Frau's wise, modest, motherly, helpful, stays off the battlefield, appeals to Amuro's better side, and despite her deep devotion to him, has other, major things in her life (she's also married, making her technically unavailable). Bel's childish, self-absorbed, sexually aggressive, baffled by Amuro's brooding and violent tendencies, jumps in fights and not only throws herself at Amuro but literally attaches to him for much of her screentime. They're contrasted in every possible way, and it'd be a MadonnaWhoreComplex if not for some more skillful characterization.
* GreenEyes: Almost qualifies for GreenEyedMonster.
* GroinAttack: Whips one out to drop a guy in a hostile situation in Hong Kong.
* IntrepidReporter: Plays one in Kilimanjaro. She ends up getting an important live feed, but she's still working for Karaba, not as an actual reporter.
* LadyInRed: Very much this, and then lampshaded with a tight red dress she wears in Hong Kong.
* NoAccountingForTaste: Rare genderflipped version, since nobody really understands why Amuro puts up with her. Easier when it's not about love. More understandable when you think about how she was never meant to be portrayed as a NiceGirl.
* ProperlyParanoid: DoubleSubverted. Doesn't like "Lt. Quattro" when she first sees him. ''"I don't feel any peacetime intelligence in him at all. He doesn't look like the sort of person who can live without war."'' Repeats her mistrust in another episode, then she warms up to him. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Then CCA happens.]]
* SatelliteLoveInterest: Almost deconstructed with how quickly her role becomes [[ClingyJealousGirl clinging to Amuro's arm and the strident way she tries to represent what she thinks are his interests.]]
* TheScrappy: Not only does most of the fandom see NoAccountingForTaste, she makes so much fuss in-universe that there's a degree of this there, too.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Appearance wise, she's one for Sayla Mass (as far as personality goes she has next to nothing in common with the calm, coolly competent Sayla).
** Or considering how Amuro originally needed encouragement from a girl to get back on the battlefield the episode before Bel even came along, for Frau Bow. (He's shown with both of them at the end of the third movie.)

The leader of the Titans, Admiral Jamitov Hymem has grander ambitions than simply running the Earth Federation's StateSec. He hopes to gain control of the whole Earth Sphere for himself, and is prepared to use any means necessary to get that power.
%%* AmbitionIsEvil
* BeardOfEvil: His goatee.
* BigBad: [[spoiler:Until Scirocco kills him and takes over the role.]]
%%* TheChessmaster
* CommissarCap: When in uniform.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:Killed in Episode 46]], allowing Scirocco to take over as the BigBad.
* EvilMentor: Late in the series he takes Jerid under his wing.
%%* EvilOldFolks
* FlatCharacter: For such a key figure in UC history, Jamitov's characterisation, motivations, and personality aren't really explored, leaving him as something of a cipher.
* GreaterScopeVillain Operation Stardust Memory. He only makes a cameo appearance but 90% of the corrupt actions the Federation pulls in that series have his backing.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: We know for most of the series that the Titans aren't just about hunting Zeon, but it takes a little while for Jamitov's true motives to become apparent.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Perhaps the single greatest example of this trope in history. He chooses Bask for his [[TheDragon Dragon]], Jerid for his disciple, and allows Scirocco to acquire considerable power under him. All three of these men couldn't care less about his plans - Bask just uses Jamitov as a way to kill more Spacenoids, Jerid plans to eventually supplant Jamitov, and Scirocco plans to supplant Jamitov without the 'eventually'. For the icing on the cake, he repeatedly attempts to court favor with Haman Karn, though she tries to kill him in ''every single meeting they have''.
* InsaneAdmiral: Literally. He suffers from obvious megalomania and is an Earth Federation admiral.
* KickTheDog: When [[spoiler: he has AEUG leader Blex assassinated.]]
%%* LargeAndInCharge
%%* ManipulativeBastard
* NonActionBigBad: He's the leader of Titans, and the BigBad for most of the show, yet he never participates in any combat operations in any sort of role.
* NotSoDifferent: A point of criticism that Scirocco brings up is that Jamitov's ambitions seem to involve the abandonment of earth and moving everyone to space a goal that's similar to the AEUG. Scirocco himself has a similar goal and argues the difference between himself, Jamitov, and the AEUG is who gets to be in charge when everyone moves to space.
* SmugSnake: Jamitov's smart and a survivor, but he also thought a blood pact would be enough to control ''Scirocco'' of all people.
* SoldiersAtTheRear: Never takes part in combat operations, even in a command role.
%%* TakeOverTheWorld
* WarForFunAndProfit: Uses the war against the AEUG to secure his own power.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:According to side material, [[http://www.mechatalk.net/viewtopic.php?p=118415#p118415 a link]], and several scenes throughout the series, Jamitov actually hates Earthlings and is trying to get them into space. He hired a mad dog like Bask to brutalize colonists and stir up rebellion, triggering the collapse of the Earth Federation and a mass exodus to the colonies with him in charge.]]

!!Bask Om
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/DaisukeGori (Japanese), Noah Umholtz (English)

Jamitov's NumberTwo, Captain Bask Om serves as the Titans' field leader. A hulking brute with a pathological hatred of all colonials, Bask is responsible for the worst of the atrocities associated with the Titans' name.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: How darkskinned Bask is seems to vary from scene to scene.
* BadBoss: Do not question this man's orders, however insane they might seem.
* BaldOfEvil: He's one of the nastiest characters in the franchise and he's completely bald (although he usually disguises it with his CommissarCap.
* BeingTorturedMakesYouEvil: More justified in this case than most--he hasn't joined the side that tortured him, after all.
* TheCaptain: A senior naval captain and one of the few Titans' officers to hold actual command rank.
* ColonelKilgore: He definitely has elements of this.
* CommissarCap: Wears one sometimes.
* CorporalPunishment: Administers it to anyone who displeases him, most notably Bright.
* DeadlyGas: Orders two massive colony gassings.
* TheDragon: To Jamitov. As the field commander of the Titans he is the one that oversees most of their dirty work.
* DragonTheirFeet: Was nowhere to be seen when [[spoiler:Scirocco blew Jamitov away. He's killed shortly afterwards]]. Interestingly, the movie trilogy corrects this oversight: [[spoiler:Bask is given a scene alongside Scirocco's speech, guessing right away that he killed Jamitov, only to be let himself be baited by Yazan into focusing on the AEUG instead. Pointedly, it's Yazan and not Reccoa who bumps him off later.]]
* DragonWithAnAgenda: He doesn't share Jamitov's politics or ambitions and just wants to kill a lot of colonists.
* ElectronicEyes: Maybe. See EyeScream and GogglesDoNothing below.
* EvilCripple: If the theories about his being blind are true. See EyeScream below for further details.
* EvilerThanThou: With the exception of Yazan, Bask is easily one of the most monstrous characters within the series and most other villains end up looking less evil when placed next to him. Jerid, Jamaican, and even Jamitov manage to look like ALighterShadeOfBlack when interacting with him.
* EyeScream: According to some sources, those goggles are actually artificial eyes. He left his real ones behind in the Zeon POW camp where he spent most of the One Year War.
** He still has eyes. In an early episode he briefly takes off his goggles while talking to Jamaican. Whether they '''function''' any is the big question.
* FirstNameBasis: Everyone calls him Bask or Captain Bask, including his subordinates.
* FlatCharacter: Recieves very little character development in the actual show despite being a major antagonist. On the plus side, it makes his evil really stand out. Sidematerials have attempted to remedy this.
* FreudianExcuse: He spent most of the One Year War in a POW camp, being tortured by Zeon. Given that this information is only available in side materials it's played as an explanation, not a genuine excuse.
* GeneralRipper: Obsessed with the colonists and the AEUG in particular, to the point where he ignores [[spoiler:Scirocco's murder of Jamitov in order to focus on the ''Argama'']].
* GogglesDoNothing: Possibly. No one's sure if Bask's eyes are functional, or if he needs the goggles to see. Either way they do a great job of invoking RedEyesTakeWarning.
%%* TheGoodCaptain: Not on your life.
* InsaneAdmiral: Bask's brutality is so extreme that madness may well be the best explanation for it. Sidematerials indicate he also has a truly horrible case of PTSD.
* {{Jerkass}}: Unpleasant, violent, and difficult to reason with; and this is just how he is to his allies.
%%* LackOfEmpathy
* LargeAndInCharge: He's the second in command of the Titans (and takes the field more often than his superior officer Jamitov) and towers over most of the cast.
* ManipulativeBastard: He has his moments in the show, even if just to screw over Spacenoids. [[spoiler:After all, he helped set the stage for the Titans' rise to power via letting Operation Stardust succeed.]]
* NonActionGuy: He'll slap his subordinates around, and he isn't afraid to lead from the front, but Bask is not a combatant.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Bask stands head and shoulders above the rest of the cast, and has a peculiarly elongated face that looks like it belongs on a far fatter man (Bask is big, but hardly overweight). And that's without mentioning the goggles that he almost never takes off, or his darker skintone.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: His goggles fulfill this purpose.
* {{Revenge}}: [[AllThereInTheManual Side materials]] hint that the reason why he hates colonials so much is the fact that he was made into a [=POW=] and horrendously tortured by Zeon in the One Year War.
%%* ScaryBlackMan: [[AmbiguouslyBrown Maybe]].
* ShellShockedVeteran: If the sidestories are to be believed Bask never really left that Zeon POW camp.
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: His solution to most problems? [[https://desu-usergeneratedcontent.xyz/m/image/1448/65/1448654578814.gif Punch them in the face]]. No, really!
* WouldHitAGirl: In addition to hitting [[spoiler:Reccoa]] in the face (see WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer above), Bask has no problem with strapping a woman [[spoiler: (Kamille's mother)]] inside of a capsule, ejecting said capsule into space, and then sending Jerid out to shoot it down under the excuse that it's a bomb.

!!Paptimus Scirocco
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/BinShimada (Japanese), Jonathan Love (English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Messala, The O

->''I'm merely a witness to history.''

An Earth Federation technical officer and fleet commander, Scirocco hails from Jupiter, where he and his fleet were sent to collect helium gas. He is eventually recruited by Admiral Jamtiov when the latter decides he needs reinforcements; unbeknownst to Jamitov, Scirocco has his own ambitions for the Earth Sphere, and is a very powerful Newtype to boot.
* AcePilot: Scirocco pilots the suits he designs flawlessly. He frequently goes toe-to-toe with the likes of Kamille and Char.
* AmbiguousDisorder: Like Kamille, Scirocco is far more interested in machines than people, and has rather poor interpersonal skills (though he compensates with his PsychicPowers).
%%* AmbitionIsEvil
* ArmourIsUseless: Averted by his final mobile suit, The O, which is the only suit in-show to withstand multiple beam rifle bursts with no damage due to its incredibly thick plating.
* AstralProjection: He has a Newtype battle against Haman where the two of them throw projections of themselves at one another.
* BadassBookworm: He's a technician and mobile suit designer, but also an AcePilot to rival Amuro and Char.
* BadPowersBadPeople: See LackOfEmpathy below. He's pretty much the only Newtype in the Universal Century capable of using his powers to brainwash people.
* BewareTheSuperman: The single most sinister Newtype in the UC verse, Scirocco's a shining example of why normal humans were so afraid of them.
* BigBadDuumvirate: Alongside [[spoiler:Haman Khan]], after he [[spoiler:deposes of Jamitov]] and takes control of the Titans.
* BiggerIsBetter: His ship, the ''Jupitris'', is the largest in the Titans' fleet, and the suits he designs are all decidedly oversized as well. This is justified, as the ''Jupitris'' is actually a transport vessel analogous to the supertankers of today and his mobile suits are all oversized to mount the numerous thrusters and verniers they need to operate in [[HeavyWorlder Jupiter's gravity well]].
* {{Biseinen}}: Scirocco is a 26-year-old, with a handsome face, a feminine, thin frame and legions of female followers.
* BloodOath: He gives one to Jamitov when pledging his allegiance to the Titans. [[spoiler:It doesn't stop him from perforating Jamitov the moment he gets the chance.]]
* TheCasanova: A very dark take, using his good looks and charming facade to manipulate multiple women into doing his bidding. He's a gender-flipped FemmeFatale at points.
%%* TheChessmaster
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Scirocco pretty much betrays everyone in order to achieve his goals. If you work for him, hire him, or care about him, watch out - he's just using you.
%%* ConsummateLiar
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Sometimes his hair and eyes are purple. Sometimes they are grey. They always match.
* CustomUniform: His white Titans uniform appears to be the only one of its kind.
* CyberCyclops: Most of the suits he designs, including The O. He's got a very Zeonic preference for monoeyes.
* DarkMessiah: Sarah views him as the savior of humanity and Scircco encourages this view.
* DeathByIrony: He's always telling people not to make the mistake of underestimating his Newtype powers, but makes the same mistake himself when he faces off against Kamille at the end of the series.
* DeceptiveDisciple: To Jamitov.
* DualWielding: The O quadwields with its four arms.
* DyingCurse: His last words bring about [[spoiler: Kamille's comatose state at the end of the TV series.]]
* EnemyMine: He and Haman team up at the end to go after Char. They make for a lethal duo.
* EnigmaticMinion: Starts out this way and works his way up.
* {{Ephebophile}}: Hinted at with his thorough seduction of the fifteen-year-old Sarah Zabiarov, though he never shows any genuine sexual interest in her.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He does seem to have cared about Sarah, to the extent that a man like him ever cared about anything other than himself, as evidenced by his attack on Katz after [[spoiler:her death]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He prefers to distance himself from the bloodthirsty actions of his superiors Jamitov and Bask, and at one point even sends Sarah out to the AEUG to ruin one of their schemes. Granted, it was for self-serving purposes...
* EvilIsBigger: His mobile suits tend towards the large, with The O standing head and shoulders above every AEUG machine in production, and being at least twice as wide.
* EvilMentor: To Sarah Zabiarov, Reccoa Londe, Jerid Messa, and even Yazan Gable, of all people.
* {{Expy}}: Is heavily based off of Amandara Kamandara aka Emperor Oldna Poseidal, the BigBad of the pervious Tomino-directed series, ''Anime/HeavyMetalLGaim''. He himself has several expies in the form of [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Tassilo Vargo]] and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Ribbons Almark]], and a CaptainErsatz in [[VideoGame/RivalSchools Kurow Kirishima]].
* FauxAffablyEvil: Scirocco tries to come off as polite and reasonable, but as he himself admits, he's just not very good at it.
* {{Foil}}: Given that they're both Newtype AcePilot mobile suit designers with {{Ambiguous Disorder}}s, one can see Scirocco as an older, more jaded, cynical Kamille, with his intelligence amplified into true genius, but his empathy almost completely gone. They're also representative of differing attitudes towards Newtypism, with Kamille being held up by other characters as an example of Newtypism at it's best, while Scirocco is the posterboy for BewareTheSuperman.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: He was just a minor official from Jupiter, but managed to manipulate his way into becoming the supreme leader of the Titans.
* GloriousLeader: Appears to be aiming for this role.
* TheHeavy: Paptimus manipulates the rest of the characters in the series in the name of his [[HiddenAgendaVillain vaguely established goals]]. He takes this a step further by [[spoiler:offing Jamitov]] to become the BigBad.
* HeavyWorlder: Scirocco is from Jupiter, and his final mobile suit, The O, is meant to operate in his homeworld's gravity. As such, when flown in outer space or Earth's orbit it transforms from a heavily-armored MightyGlacier to a LightningBruiser and becomes even more dangerous. All his other suits qualify as well to greater or lesser degrees.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: Decades after the original series ended, Scirocco's exact goals are ''still'' shrouded in mystery.
* ImmuneToBullets: Not quite but very close: The O's thick armor allows it to tank beam fire from the Qubeley's funnels outright, something that no other suit is able to do.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler:He's stabbed through by the blade of a Gundam, through his machine, into his own physical body.]]
%%* ImprobableAge: He's twenty-six.
* KlingonPromotion: Played with. Scirocco has to [[spoiler:knock off ''two'' Klingons to consolidate his power.]]
* KnightTemplar: Scirocco believes that humanity requires an absolute dictator to keep that masses's uncontrolled emotions from ruining the elites.
* LackOfEmpathy: Perhaps best demonstrated by the nature of his PsychicPowers. The defining trait of a Newtype is their ability to perform empathic connections with others, understanding them without misconceptions and drawing on their strength through bonds of friendship. Scirocco simply uses it to better manipulate people, and shows no sign of seeing those he connects with as anything more than useful tools.
* LargeAndInCharge: The O is considerably larger than any regular issue suit of its era, or any Gundam that doesn't have "Psyco" attached to its name.
* LastNameBasis: Almost every character in this series is addressed by their first name. Even subordinates address their superiors as such: that's how we get Lieutenant Jerid and Captain Bright. Scirocco is the one exception, with everyone but Sarah, addressing him by his last name.
* LightIsNotGood: Scirocco wears a custom white Titans uniform, but is a ruthless manipulator.
* LightningBruiser: His last mobile suit, the extremely dangerous PMX-003 The O. Justified in that his mobile suits were designed to operate in a Jovian (Jupiter's) gravity well, which is ''much'' stronger than the Earth's.
* ManInWhite: Scirocco's white uniform, which seems to be unique among the Titans.
%%* TheManBehindTheMan
* ManipulativeBastard: Scirocco toys with the emotions of his subordinates and enemies alike in order to provoke the response he wants.
* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Scirocco's talent for manipulating women might be the result of his pretty boy looks and ability to smooth talk, or he might be using his Newtype powers to screw with their heads. Which it is isn't made entirely clear.
* MeaningfulName: 'Scirocco' is a powerful Mediterranean wind
* MidSeasonUpgrade: The O, which he adopts during the last few episodes.
* MightyGlacier: The O is designed to be one of these in a Jovian gravity well. Turned loose on Earth it becomes a LightningBruiser.
%%* MindManipulation
* MindRape: [[spoiler:Does this to Kamille as a retributory strike just before he dies]]
* MrFanservice: Scirocco's bishie looks and magnificent bastardry make him rather popular with the female fanbase.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: The O has four arms, each of which carries a beam sabre.
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: His psychic powers allow him to be able to sense other New Types.
* {{Narcissist}}: Scirocco isn't totally callous when it comes to his pawns, but he's close enough, and has difficulty seeing them as anything more than possessions or extensions of his will. Even his UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans rhetoric has a certain "only ''I'' can save the world" edge to it, and his grandiose nature and inability to empathise with those who are not exactly like himself, makes him a strong candidate for being a pathological narcissist.
* NotSoStoic: The only times we really see his frigid exterior crack is when [[spoiler:Sarah dies and he forgets all about the psychic battle he was waging just moments before in favor of going after her killer]] and when [[spoiler:The controls for The O lock up and the Zeta Gundam is about to impale him.]] But that one's a little more understandable.
* PlayingBothSides: Plays the Titans, the Axis, and the AEUG against one another as he climbs to power. Only Haman Khan really catches on.
%%* PsychicLink
* PsychicPowers: One of the most powerful Newtypes to ever appear in-series, to the point where he's able to [[spoiler:MindRape the equally powerful Kamille as he's dying]] and is more or less broadcasting his presence to everyone in his general vicinity.
* RenaissanceMan: Starship captain, battlefield strategist, psychological mastermind, a smooth-talker, mobile suit designer, and Federation ace. He's a busy man.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: He and Yazan Gable form a very twisted variant. Scirocco's a cultured psychological predator, with PsychicPowers, grand ambitions, and superb manipulative skills. Yazan's an actual predator with a nearly feral nature, [[BadassNormal no powers]] and a [[TheBrute direct way]] of handling problems. They get along very well.
* SocialDarwinist: He views humanity as being separated into masses and elites. Scircco finds the masses to be disgusting as their unchecked emotions hold elites like himself back.
* SoreLoser: [[spoiler:[[TakingYouWithMe Scircco destroys Kamille's mind]] as revenge for killing him.]]
* SpaceFighter: The Messala's altmode.
* TheStarscream: Although he bides his time, acting as a [[EnigmaticMinion mysterious but loyal henchman]], he eventually [[spoiler:murders Jamitov and Bask so he can take over the Titans]], firmly standing as one half of the newly-formed BigBadDuumvirate for the remainder of the show.
* TheStoic: He seldom shows any emotions.
* StrawHypocrite: Scirocco talks a lot about empowering women, but given that he's essentially a glorified pick-up artist using his mind rape powers to have his way with them, it's fair to say that his beliefs are questionable at best.
* SuperPrototype: The PMX series, the set of unique and extraordinarily powerful mobile suits that he designed and built aboard the Jupitris. Of these, the PMX-003 The O is perhaps the one most iconically associated with him.
* TakeOverTheWorld: Scirocco talks like a VisionaryVillain, but since his actual objectives are never made clear (and let's face it, he's far from the most trustworthy person in the Universal Century) his motivations are pretty up in the air. The one thing that is clear is that he wants to rule the world.
* TakingYouWithMe: A variation. As he's dying he lashes out with his PsychicPowers and manages to [[spoiler:MindRape Kamille into a coma]].
* TransformingMecha: His first mobile suit, the PMX-000 Messala, which transforms into a mobile armor.
* {{Ubermensch}}: The first example in the franchise, who plans to ram his sense of morality (whatever that may be) down everyone's throats.
* VillainousFriendship: He and Yazan Gable get along quite well, to everyone's surprise and confusion. Also, while he does view most people as pawns to use as he sees fit, [[spoiler:he goes completely berserk when Sarah Zabiarov dies, hinting that at least some of his leading her on might have meant something, especially as he doesn't do this for any other minion that dies.]]
* VisionaryVillain: Possibly. In case you hadn't noticed by now, [[ConsummateLiar Scirocco lies.]] [[UpToEleven A lot.]]
* WarForFunAndProfit: Scirocco didn't start the war with the AEUG, but he's more than willing to manipulate it for his own ends, with the ultimate goal of WorldDomination. Whether that domination's for [[WellIntentionedExtremist the better]] or [[DespotismJustifiesTheMeans the worse]] is the big question.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Maybe. Scirocco might be out to [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans cut out the Earth Federation's corruption]]. Than again, he [[DespotismJustifiesTheMeans might just want to rule the world]].
%%* WickedCultured
* WorthyOpponent: Views Haman Khan, the one woman he can't manipulate, in this light.
* XanatosSpeedChess: Seems to be playing this throughout the series.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: It's either purple or grey depending on the lighting.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Pulls this on Jamitov and Bask towards the end]]

!!Jamaican Daninghan
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/KeatonYamada (Japanese), Roger Rhodes (English)

Jerid and Yazan's superior officer, Jamaican is a sycophantic Titans' commander who hangs onto every word Bask and Jamitov say. He and his men chase the ''Argama'' throughout the first half of the show.
* AssholeVictim: Admit it--when [[spoiler:Yazan killed him, you either didn't care at all or cheered.]]
* BadBoss: Drives Jerid and Mouar to (temporarily) ally with Scirocco.
* DirtyCoward: He was happy to hide behind Yazan and let him soak up enemy fire. In the end, this really didn't work out for him.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: Yazan lures Emma to kill Jamaican for interfering with his bloodlust.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: Jamaican isn't a psychopath like Yazan or Bask but he cares about nothing other than his own career.
%%* NonActionGuy
* NonIndicativeName: This straight-laced, fascistic, white bloodclot is probably the least Jamaican-looking person you could imagine.
* PornStache: Jamaican wears his moustache UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler style.
* PragmaticVillainy: As much of a smug kiss-ass Jamaican is, he also tries to aim for some degree of efficiency within the military.
** Bask feels that the Titans should only be composed of Earthlings and doesn't want Spacenoids employed whilst Jamaican argues that skill and loyalty are more important and that if they have them Spacenoids should be Titans.
** While he and Lila clash because of JurisdictionFriction (Jamaican wanting the Titans to be in charge of the pursuit whilst Lila feels he's muscling out the Earth Federation's staff) he does point out her LeeroyJenkins tendencies and how they end up putting their plans in danger.
* TheRival: Views Scirocco as as his rival within the Titans. Scirocco [[PaperTiger feels differently]].
%%* SmugSnake
* StarterVillain: His entire purpose is to chase Kamille and the ''Argama'' for the first part of the show, and then [[spoiler:die right around the time that Scirocco, Yazan, and the rest of the real threats appear.]]
* WeHaveReserves

!!Jerid Messa
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/KazuhikoInoue (Japanese), Ethan Cole (English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Hizack, Galbady Beta, Marasai, Gabthley, Byarlant, Baund Doc (pink)

->''I'll make that pompous fool kneel before me someday.''

Kamille's rival, Jerid possesses the personality of a school bully, and the attitude to match. He seeks to one day run the Titans himself, and to that end, aims to destroy Kamille and the stolen Gundams as a means of improving his reputation.
* AcePilot: Reaches this status around the same time Kamille does.
* AlasPoorVillain: Jerid's a total bastard, but the sheer pointlessness of his death is still rather sad.
* AmazonChaser: One of the main reasons he fell for Lila.
* AmbitionIsEvil: In a personal moment Jerid admits to Lila that his main goal is to someday rule the Titans and much of his actions in the story are to advance that goal. Interestingly enough it acts as something of a sympathetic point for Jerid highlighting his VillainousUnderdog status and him as a fairly small pilot with big dreams.
* AntiVillain: Jerid is a jackass who doesn't care about civilian casualties and will do anything to win a fight. And when you're on a team with [[SociopathicSoldier Yazan Gable]], [[DarkMessiah Paptimus Scirocco]], and [[GeneralRipper Bask Om]] that leaves you looking pretty good, as does his genuine concern for his subordinates and his love for Mouar.
* {{Archenemy}}: He and Kamille reach this status by the midpoint of the show. There's nothing Jerid won't do if it means getting rid of Kamille, and Kamille for his part, hates Jerid more than anyone save Scirocco, but pays less attention to him as the war goes on.
* BadassNormal: For most the show, Jerid demonstrates no Newtype powers. He's still one of the few people who can give Kamille a run for his money.
* BattleCouple: Him and Mouar form a villainous, but deadly efficient version of this.
* TheBully: Has the personality of a classic high school bully.
* CantCatchUp: He can never quite reach Kamille's level of skill, though that doesn't stop him from being extremely dangerous, especially when in UnstoppableRage mode.
* CartwrightCurse: [[spoiler: Falls for Lila and Mouar, both get killed off]].
* CharClone: In a story where [[TropeNamer Quattro Bajeena/the original Char Aznable]] exists, it is almost impossible to notice... but his rivalry with Kamille, his experience of learning about battle and being a person from women recalls [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam a lot of the tensions Amuro and Char had during the One Year War.]]
* ContrastingSequelAntagonist: As explained above, Jerid's role in the story is very much like Char's from the previous series. Where they contrast is their personality. While Char is determined to beat Amuro in combat, he never allows his rivalry to distract him from his other ambitions [[spoiler: plotting revenge against the Zabi Family.]] He is something of a [[TheChessmaster Chessmaster]] who uses battles, even losing ones, to further his agenda. Jerid meanwhile is a hothead wh's rivalry with Kamille turns into a full-blown obsession.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Towards Jamitov, acting as his bodyguard and enforcer while planning to take control of the Titans at the first opportunity. After Scirocco's coup, Jerid acts as one of his best pilots, though his focus on killing Kamille and the fact that Scirocco doesn't really have an inner circle may cost him his dragon status.
* DeceptiveDisciple: To Jamitov, and one could argue, Scirocco. All Jerid cares about is leading the Titans one day, and he'll kiss up to whoever he has to in order to get there.
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:Kamille kills Jerid early in the final battle with a few lucky shots. The sheer pointlessness of it sends Kamille into a HeroicBSOD.]]
* EleventhHourSuperpower: Finally gains a Gundam equivalent, in the form of the Baund Doc, just in time for his final throwdown with Kamille.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: In the last few episodes, Jerid begins to unlock his Newtype potential. The {{Irony}}.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He isn't a fan of gassing colonies but then again he just follows orders on it and doesn't protest.
* FlawedPrototype: Only a single Byarlant was ever produced, since the machine, while fast and highly manouverable, lacks the ability to utilise most handheld weapons, leaving it dependant upon built-in beam sabres and guns.
* {{Foil}}: To Kamille, whose progress he mirrors throughout the show. They're both young, arrogant, {{ace pilot}}s with a chip on their shoulder and something to prove. Jerid's JerkJock persona makes for a marked contrast with Kamille's InsufferableGenius, while his desire for promotions and personal glory, and weak Newtype status, set him apart from the genuinely committed, frighteningly powerful Kamille.
* FragileSpeedster: The Gabthley and especially the Byarlant are this when compared to the Gundam Mark II and Zeta Gundam. The Byarlant in particular is fast and very agile, but lacks armor when compared to its rivals.
* GlorySeeker: He seeks to one day lead the Titans and joined up for the fame. Dodges being a full-on GloryHound due to his concern for the troops under his command, and willingness to accept blame when he feels he hasn't lived up to his standards.
* HandicappedBadass: Jerid spends a couple of episodes on crutches. He still tracks Kamille and Four across the mountains to deal with them.
* HotBlooded: Hot headed and quick to rush into combat with no real plans.
* HypocrisyNod: While he has committed a number of hypocritical acts, Jerid often cops to his own actions and uses them as a means to tell off Kamille for being just as hypocritical at times.
* {{Hypocrite}}: His rivalry with Kamille, which eventually grows more one-sided on Jerid's end, is full of hypocrisy. Jerid accidentally kills Kamille's mother and not only [[LackOfEmpathy does he not feel guilt about it]] but when he later encounters Kamille, [[KickTheDog he's out right flippant about it.]] Kamille kills Jerid's love-interest, Lila, in self-defense? Well that's the most heinous action imaginable and Jerid become hellbent on killing Kamille for the remainder of the series.
* ItsPersonal: With Kamille. At first he's motivated out of embarrassment of being [[JustAKid being in combat by a child]] but then later his love interest Lila becomes a causality and he now he's out for vengeance.
* JerkAss: A jerk to almost everyone who crosses his path. Though when you're a member of the Titans and that's the worst thing that can be said of you, you're diving right into AntiVillain territory.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Jerid is the only character to consistently call Kamille out on his MoralMyopia. For his own part, Jerid's fully aware that he himself is no better; he's just stopped caring.
* JerkJock: Jerid definitely gives off this vibe. It's easy enough to see him as the quarterback in an eighties teen movie.
* JustFollowingOrders: The worst of his crimes are committed while doing this.
* [[spoiler: KilledOffForReal: Kicked into an exploding battleship, while screaming in frustration at his inability to match Kamille.]]
* KnowWhenToFoldEm: Surprisingly yes. Jerid starts out as a HotBlooded idiot, but by the series' midpoint his ability to tell when a battle has been lost is what makes him officer material.
* LightningBruiser: The NRX-055 Baund Doc is a huge transformable mobile armor/mobile suit with thick armor plating, a powerful armament, and enough thrusters to let it keep up with the Zeta in terms of both agility and speed.
* LoveAtFirstPunch: He had a crush on DarkActionGirl Lyla, who beat him up at least twice during practice.
* MechaMooks: Initially pilots a Hizack, the standard {{mook}} suit.
* MilitaryMaverick: A villainous example. Jerid's got the JerkJock militant attitude about him and he's suitably undisciplined and prone to rash thinking. His first showing as a mobile suit pilot had him perform flashy unsafe maneuvers and crash into a government building, injuring many. Though unruliness and a disregard for safety and protocol is common within the Titans who largely play to their own rules and even with that Jerid does try to be a team player as that's how he feels he'll be able to rise in the ranks.
* MightMakesRight: Claims that the Titans possessing power gives them the right to do as they please.
* MookPromotion: Begins the show as a non-entity, before evolving into Kamille's archrival.
* NecessarilyEvil: How he views the worst of the Titans' actions.
* OvershadowedByAwesome: Jerid consistently comes out on the worse end of his fights with Kamille, making him appear to be a relatively poor pilot. The thing to remember, though, is that Kamille is a supremely powerful Newtype in a SuperPrototype suit and Jerid is not. Whenever he fights somebody other than Kamille, he tends to acquit himself just fine.
* RealMenWearPink: Or pilot a pink Baund Doc anyway. A custom color scheme for his Baund Doc exists, but wasn't animated for some reason, leading him to use Rosamia's colors instead.
* RedOniBlueOni: He and Mouar are a romantic variation. He's the red to her blue.
* TheRival: To Kamille, though as the series goes on, it becomes one sided on Jerid's part.
* TheSocialDarwinist: Has some shades of this, considering his SurvivalMantra (mentioned below) and his declaration that 'the Titans have the power; that gives them the right'.
* SuperPrototype: Becomes a test pilot for numerous new models, including the Gabthley, Byarlant, and Baund Doc, all of them far better than your average {{mook}} suit, and none of which ever entered mass production.
* SurvivalMantra: "If you're weak, you won't survive." Recites this as he competes with his comrades to board a shuttle fleeing Jaburo, which was rigged to [[NukeEm go up in a mushroom cloud]].
* TookALevelInBadass: Jerid evolves from a worthless VillainOfTheWeek to an AcePilot in a SuperPrototype mobile suit, whose threat level is near that of [[BigBad Big Bads]] Haman and Scirocco. Even Haman herself was shocked durring his UnstoppableRage [[spoiler:at her after she attempted to assassinate Jamitov: he ''would'' have killed her had the AEUG not interfered. He's also responsible for killing Apolly near the end.]]
* TransformingMecha: The Gabthley and the Baund Doc both transform between mobile armor and mobile suit.
* UnholyMatrimony: With Mouar. Somewhat one-sided because Mouar isn't really villainous, just an antagonist.
* UnstoppableRage: You do not want to fight Jerid after killing one of his allies. You really don't.
* VillainousUnderdog: Jerid is outgunned, outclassed, and overpowered by Kamille. That never stops him from giving near as good as he gets.
* VillainousValor: Given that his entire shtick boils down to "Fight the telepathic and telekenetic hero and his SuperPrototype with my own skills and a mook suit" this trope is definitely in play.
* WeakButSkilled: He's not the Titans' top pilot, but he tends to give a remarkably good accounting of himself despite weak/nonexistent Newtype powers and a long line of inferior suits.
* YouKilledMyFather: Mother actually. His and Kamille's long and bloody feud begins with Jerid's accidental murder of Kamille's mother, Hilda Bidan.

!!Yazan Gable
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/HochuOtsuka (Japanese), Corby Proctor (English), Ryan Ballantine (EN, VideoGame/DynastyWarriorsGundam)
->'''Main mecha:''' Gaplant, Hambrabi

A Titans officer with a love of bloodshed, Yazan is the most capable Oldtype pilot introduced in the show. Raised by a mother who disdained all trappings of culture, Yazan is an almost feral predator, who lives only to prove his superiority.
* AcePilot: One of the Titans' best MS pilots, with the highest killcount of the war. Tactically, he's a classic bushwhacker, using the terrain, and superior tactics to outmanouvere [[PsychicPowers Newtypes]] and {{Super Prototype}}s.
* AnimeHair: Part-bouffant, part-Mohawk, part-mullet, part balding... it's quite the look, isn't it?
* AxeCrazy: Downplayed. Yazan ''is'' dangerously insane, but his evil, rather than his madness, recieves the most emphasis, and his general characterization is that of a brutal uncaring thug rather than a cackling madman.
* BadassNormal: Yazan is neither a Newtype nor the pilot of a SuperPrototype. He still kills more AEUG members than any other Titan, at a point in the show when those without special abilities or suits were generally being relegated to the backburner. Kamille lampshades this during their first battle, noting "He's got lots of experience, but I don't feel any psychic pressure. He's just strong." [[spoiler:Not only does he survive into the events of ''ZZ'', albeit humiliated. But eventually re-emerges in ''MSV-R: The Return of Johnny Ridden'' as an even more dangerous ace.]]
* BloodKnight: Yazan's always spoiling for a fight; he enjoys both the adrenaline rush of combat and the [[PsychoForHire chance to kill AEUG members]].
* BookDumb: An uneducated brute, but far from stupid. Most of his victories in fact, come from outsmarting the opposing pilots.
* TheBrute: Yazan is the Titans' and then Scirocco's attack dog. He's invaluable due to his cunning, viciousness, and skill as a pilot, but is never promoted past Lieutenant because he's simply not the kind of guy you give any real authority to.
* CombatPragmatist: Yazan's an ambush predator by nature. He utilises the terrain, decoys, team attacks, and anything else that will give him an advantage. The man may be a BloodKnight, but there's no HonourBeforeReason.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Subverted - he refused to partake in a gassing operation but this is because he prefers to kill one-on-one.
* EvilIsNotPacifist: Yazan is a serious war-junkie, joining the Titans so he would have an excuse to act on his violent impulses. Without war he'd be in serious trouble.
* {{Expy}}: According to [[WordOfGod character designer Yoshikazu Yasuhiko]], he is this to Feyd-Rautha (as played by the musician Sting) from Dune. He has his own FountainOfExpies in [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Rakan Dahkaran]], [[Manga/MobileSuitGundamSEEDAstray Ash Grey]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Ali Al-Saachez]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE Decil Galette]], and [[Anime/CodeGeass Luciano Bradley]], and has a DistaffCounterpart in [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Rezun Schneider]].
* ExtraEyes: The RX-139 Hambrabi features five Zeonic monoeyes, allowing it to see in all directions.
* FlawedPrototype: The Gaplant was rushed into production and has a blind spot. This does not stop Yazan from being very dangerous with it.
* HeManWomanHater: Yazan has no respect for females who think they can fight.
* HeroKiller: Kills [[spoiler:Katz, Henken, the entire crew of the ''Radish'', Reccoa and Emma (all in the space of one episode, plus Bask in the movie trilogy)]], arranges for the death of [[spoiler:Jamaican and one of the ''Argama'''s BridgeBunnies]], and damn near kills Kamille himself on several separate occasions, to the point where the young man is actually terrified of him.
* KarmaHoudini: Although he does get his ass kicked by Kamille near the end of Zeta, [[spoiler:he still manages to escape with his life and remains at large, as proven near the beginning of ZZ.]]
** It doesn't end there. He's somehow still serving as a pilot for the Federation in the 0090s (according to the manga ''MSV-R: The Return of Johnny Ridden''). Further supplementary materials reveal that he lived out a long and peaceful life, eventually retiring from the service and finding his way back to the Shangri-La colony, where he was hired by a now grown up Leina as a night watchman at the Ashta family's scrapyard.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: He [[spoiler:kills Jamaican]] and in the [[CompilationMovie Compilation Movies]], [[spoiler: He convinces Bask to keep focusing on the AEUG instead of Scirocco (for killing Jamitov), and then later attacks and destroys his ship.]]
%%* LackOfEmpathy
* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: Gets Emma Sheen to fire at him, than dodges so that the blast will hit [[spoiler:Jamaican]], whom he hated.
* MommasBoy: His mother, with her disdain for education and intellectualism, definitely left her mark on her thuggish son, who has nothing positive to say about his father (or his mother for that matter).
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: His misogyny is just the tip of the iceberg.
* PsychoForHire: The first one to appear in the franchise, and the prototype for [[{{Expy}} all the ones that follow]]. If you're a fan of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Rakan Dahkaran]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Ali Al-Saachez]] or [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamAge Decil Galette]], thank this guy.
%%* PutTheLaughterInSlaughter
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: The [[TheBrute Manly Man]] to Scirocco's [[EvilGenius Sensitive Guy]].
* ShoulderCannon: The Hambrabi has two.
* SlasherSmile: Just look at that grin!
* SmarterThanYouLook: Yazan's behaviour in battle is more or less like a wild beast in the body of a human, but that doesn't mean his brain is also like an animal's. In fact, he is quite smart when it comes to improvising ambushes in the battlefield, and most of his victories come from his CombatPragmatist nature.
%%* TheSociopath
* SociopathicSoldier: Type II. He joined the army so that he would have the chance to kill people without going to prison.
* TerribleTrio: He forms one with wingmates Dunkel Cooper and Ramsus Hasa.
* TransformingMecha: Pilots a Gaplant and then the Hambrabi.
* UnfriendlyFire: Is nearly shot down by the ''Alexandria'''s guns when Jamaican opens fire on Kamille during a battle between the two of them. [[spoiler:He later arranges for Jamaican to die in a very similar fashion.]]
* VillainousFriendship: Played with. Yazan is clearly incapable of empathy. Yet it's just as obvious that he at least enjoys the company of both Scirocco and like minded psychopaths Dunkel Cooper and Ramsus Hasa.
* WalkingShirtlessScene: Whenver he's out of uniform.
* WouldHitAGirl: In Yazan's own words, the AEUG are made up of "women and children". He still thoroughly enjoys killing their members.
* WouldHurtAChild: As his quote above shows, he believes his enemy's line has children as well as women and he loves getting to hurt the children that make up their ranks whenever he gets the chance.
* WouldNotShootACivilian: Subverted. Yazan's refusal to participate in the colony gassing makes him look like an example of this, only for him to then reveal that his issue is actually the use of the gas--he doesn't find it fun unless you kill them yourself. He subsequently shows no compunctions about participating in the Grenada ColonyDrop which would have killed thousands, if not millions of noncombatants. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Standards]] he does not have.

!!Mouar Pharaoh
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YoshikoSakakibara (Japanese, TV), Marika Hayashi (Japanese, Movie), Jennifer Holder (English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Gabthley

A Titans officer who rescues Jerid during his time on Earth, Mouar becomes Jerid's closest friend and constant companion upon his return to space, eventually revealing that she has a crush on him.
%%* AntiVillain
* BattleCouple: With Jerid. The two of them make a surprisingly effective combo, frequently tagteaming opponents in their Gabthley's.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Is as displeased as Jerid is by the Titans' use of [=WMDs=], though as in his case, she simply follows orders rather than objecting.
* ILetGwenStacyDie: Like Lyla, she becomes one to Jerid.
%%* JustFollowingOrders
%%* KilledOffForReal
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: In addition to being calm, reasonable, and far more moral than her teammates, she's the only woman in ''Zeta'' (other than Haman) to resist Scirocco. [[ActorAllusion Being voiced by the same person probably helps]].
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Jerid's red.
* TakingTheBullet: Intercepts a blast [[spoiler:from the ''Zeta'' to save Jerid.]]
* TransformingMecha: Her last suit, the Gabthley.
* UnholyMatrimony: With Jerid.

!!Four Murasame
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/SaekoShimazu (Japanese, TV), Creator/{{Yukana}} (Japanese, Movies), Carol-Anne Day(English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Psyco Gundam

->''Were you sent here to make my life a misery?''

One of the Cyber-Newtypes produced in the Titans' labs, Four Murasame is the original pilot of the Psyco Gundam. A war orphan who's left bereft of her memories by the Titans' experiments, Four is willing to do anything to get them back. She and Kamille share a brief romance when they meet off-duty.
* AntiVillain: She's a pitiable war orphan enslaved in a nightmare of drugs and MindRape. When we see her with the only person who shows her some kindness and gives her a few normal moments, she's a perfectly NiceGirl.
* BoyishShortHair: A contrast to Rosamia's; hers is waif-like and relatively androgynous-looking.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: As an Cyber Newtype.
%%* BrokenBird
* CuteAndPsycho: Though she's not exactly to blame; it's a side-effect of having her psyche torn down and then rebuilt from the ground up with drugs and psycho-indoctrination on repeated occasions.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler: Presumably earlier in the CompilationMovie, where her apparent death after helping Kamille return to space seems to have become her real one this time around]].
* EvilIsBigger: The MRX-009 Psyco Gundam. [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Or is it]] [[MeaningfulName "Psycho?"]]
* [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Everyone Calls Her Four]]: Her original name is never revealed in the series.
* FourIsDeath: [[spoiler:[[KilledOffForReal Indeed...]]]]
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: [[spoiler:She starts turning around and is promptly killed by Jerid (or Wooder in the CompilationMovie).]]
* IllGirl: As a side effect of the experiments and treatments she's been subjected to, Four sometimes suffers ''extremely'' serious migraines. When that happens, the poor girl ends up almost unvariably on the ground/floor, either whimpering or screaming in utter pain, and needs medicines to get rid of it.
* ItsAllAboutMe: She's perfectly willing to commit mass murder in the Psyco Gundam, burn down Hong Kong, and attempt to kill Kamille - the first person to treat her like a human being - as long as it gets her memories back for her. A lot of that can probably be attributed to psychological problems from being transformed into a Cyber-Newtype and using her powers, as she acts more reasonably in other circumstances.
* ItsAllJunk: Once she discovers Kamille's true identity.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: She's apparently a war orphan picked up by the Titans and trained as a Tykebomb. [[spoiler: Confirmed in a novel.]] The treatment removed her prior memories, and one of her goals is to get them back.
* LoveAtFirstSight: With Kamille.
* MysteriousPast: She isn't too happy about having one, and one of the biggest holds the Murasame Institute has over her is their promise to give her memories back. [[spoiler: Though [[ArtificialHuman she might not have a past at all]].]]
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The Psyco Gundam. Four herself could count if you're familiar with Japanese beliefs about [[FourIsDeath certain numbers]].
* NoblewomansLaugh: Frequently employs it.
* PsychicPowers: Courtesy of being a Cyber Newtype.
* SanitySlippage: When they said that Cyber Newtypes tend to be mentally unstable, they were not kidding. Four goes from having a merry romantic scene with Kamille to trying to crush him with the Psyco Gundam scarily fast.
* StateSec: The Newtype lab is allied with the Titans.
* StarCrossedLovers: With Kamille.
* SuperSoldier: She's an experiment in "remodelling" a human's brain to artificially induce Newtype abilities.
* TeensAreMonsters: Her entire persona is that of a particularly broken ''and'' psychotic teenager in the midst of a rebellion.
* TookALevelInBadass: Between appearances.
* {{Tykebomb}}: An artificially created or "Cyber" Newtype, which has left her mentally unstable and in possession of PsychicPowers.
* WeaponOfMassDestruction: The Psyco Gundam
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: It's implied that psychotic instability is an inherent fault in the Cyber Newtype program. The stronger they are made to be, the more insane they end up.
* [[YouAreNumberSix You Are Number Four]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Green.

!!Rosamia Badam
!!! Voice Actors: Kayoko Fujii (Japanese, TV), Creator/YuuAsakawa (English), Movies), Jennifer Bain (English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Gaplant, Baund Doc (pink), Psyco Gundam Mk-II

-->''"Big brother, I found you."''

The first, and arguably craziest, Cyber-Newtype introduced in ''Zeta'', Rosamia is a psychological mess. Encountering Kamille during her time off, she latches onto him as a substitute for her deceased brother.
* AnimeAccentAbsence: She's a survivor of the ColonyDrop that wiped out Sydney, but has no trace of an Australian accent.
%%* AxeCrazy
* TheBaroness: She comes off this way at first, but is actually an AxeCrazy CuteAndPsycho {{Tykebomb}}.
* BigBrotherWorship: An InvokedTrope, Rosamia was conditioned to believe that Kamille was her beloved older brother in order to make it easy for her to infiltrate the Argama. When that doesn't fully work, she later gets reprogrammed to believe Gates is her brother so that she can more closely follow his orders.
* CuteAndPsycho: As in the case of Four, it isn't her fault.
* DemotedToExtra: In the compilations. Partly because her character arc was mostly a retread of Four's, mostly because her original voice actress had been through a messy divorce with the director.
* DrugsAreBad: They are the reason she is such an AxeCrazy MoodSwinger psycho.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: She's first seen as ruthless and cold, then has a huge VillainousBSOD and screams that the sky will fall on her...
* EvilIsBigger: The Psyco Gundam Mk. II.
* FunnySchizophrenia: Rosamia's insanity and childishness lead to at least as much silliness as drama.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia
* LightningBruiser: Both the Baund Doc and the Psyco Gundam II are extremely fast for their size.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: She forgets to get dressed between completing her physical and hugging Kamille.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The Psyco Gundam II.
* PsychicLink: With Gates Capa.
* PsychicPowers: Another Cyber Newtype. She's powerful enough--and insane enough--to spook the Hell out of Kamille in their first encounter; he describes it as though his mind were being drawn into a great darkness. To put that in perspective, he says something very similar about Scirocco.
* PsychopathicManchild: She believes that the AEUG plan to make the sky fall. She's an girl in her late teens with the fears of a little girl. On the other hand, she's explicitly stated as being among the few survivors of Zeon's ColonyDrop at the start of the One Year War; being traumatized and having a phobia of similar experiences is kind of understandable, and the Zeon's Cyber Newtype treatments likely made it all worse.
* ReplacementGoldfish: UpToEleven -if a character is of the right age, and is a powerful enough Newtype, she'll mistake them for her older brother. She does it to Kamille and has it used against her by Gates.
** Rosamia is in turn Kamille's ReplacementGoldfish for Four. In several instances he hallcuinates Four in Rosamia's place.
* SanitySlippage: She gets progressively more unstable in every appearance.
* SplitPersonality: Rosamia Badam is a hardcore soldier. Rosammy is a scared little girl looking for her brother.
%%* SuperSoldier
* TeensAreMonsters: She's 17.
* TransformingMecha: The Gaplant and Baund Doc.
* {{Tykebomb}}: Another Cyber Newtype, and even crazier than Four.
* WeaponOfMassDestruction: The Psyco Gundam II.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: "The sky! It's falling! NOOOOOOOO!"
** Doctors are almost as scary. As with the pathological fear of colony drops ''and'' what we know about the Artificial Newtypes, this almost certainly has a very unpleasant story behind it.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity
* WomanChild: Rosammy is, as mentioned elsewhere, mentally five years old, and can be seen chasing Haro and squabbling over candy right alongside the kids. At one point, Kamille says that the kids are babysitting ''her''.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: As noted by Shinta & Qum, Rosamia looks like she could pass for Kamille's ''older'' sister. They're the same age.
%%* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!!Sarah Zabiarov
!!! Voice Actors: Creator/YukoMizutani(Japanese, TV), Chizuru Ikewaki/Kaori Shimamura(Movies), Maizun Jayoussi(English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Hizack, Messala, Bolinoak Samaan

->''Master Paptimus will bring forth a new world for humanity!''

A young prodigy, Sarah is initially recruited as a Newtype cadet by the Titans, but soon throws her loyalty and support behind Scirocco.
* AntiVillain: Not really evil, just deluded and utterly devoted to Scirocco.
* BoringButPractical: Sarah's final mobile suit, the PMX-002 Bolinoak Samaan.
** Sarah herself, to a degree. Her PsychicPowers are not the strongest, but unlike most Newtypes, she's completely sane and functional in and out of battle.
* DarkChick: Sarah wants to be Scirocco's [[TheDragon Dragon]], but in practice she's this, both to him and the Titans as a whole.
* DatingCatwoman: She and Katz share a mutual attraction.
* FriendlyEnemy: Towards Kamille, who she has a level of respect for.
* EvilRedhead: Antagonistic redhead, anyway.
%%* HeelRealization
%%* GreenEyes
* GreenEyedMonster: She's clearly jealous of Scirocco's relationship with [[spoiler: Reccoa]] near the end of the series. This is exploited by the latter to get her to do increasingly risky things in order to prove her loyalty to him and ultimately [[spoiler: gets her killed.]]
* HairDecorations: Keeps her short ponytail in place with two cute green baubles, as seen in the picture.
* IgnoredEnamoredUnderling: Scirocco is aware of her affection, using it to keep her loyal.
* LoveMakesYouDumb ''and'' [[LoveMakesYouEvil Evil]]
* LoveMartyr: For Scirocco. She's not exactly ''evil'', but completely devoted to him.
* MyMasterRightOrWrong: To say that she will do ''anything'' for Scirocco isn't much of an understatement.
%%* PerkyFemaleMinion
* PrecociousCrush: On Scirocco. It's a very dark take on the trope, [[spoiler: and ultimately gets her killed]].
* SuperPrototype: After an initial appearance in the mook suit Marasai Scirocco assigns her his Messala and later upgrades her to the Bolinoak Samaan.
* TeenGenius: In theory anyway. She's a competent enough pilot while barely in her mid-to-late teens, but her behavior otherwise leaves a lot to be desired.
* UndyingLoyalty: To Scirocco. [[spoiler: Literally. [[NotTooDeadToSaveTheDay Even after she dies]], her ghost returns to defend Scirocco, and only the intervention of Katz' own ghost takes her away from the battlefield.]]
* UnwittingPawn: Kamille tries to argue that she's this to Scirocco. She laughs at him. [[spoiler:Then she gets killed two episodes later.]]
* TheVamp: Not normally, but Katz is so smitten with her that he practically begs her to take advantage of him.
* WolverineClaws: The Bolinoak Samaan has one on its left arm.

!!Kacricon Cacooler
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KojiTotani (Japanese), Ben Jeffery(English)
->'''Main mecha:''' Hizack, Marasai

Jerid's wingmate during the early episodes of the series, Kacricon's calmness and experience temper Jerid's frequently impulsive behavior.
* {{Antivillain}}: Hell, he's less evil than Jerid.
* BigBrotherMentor: To Jerid. Yeah, a villainous example.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He's good friends with Jerid and clearly loves his wife Amelia.
%%* HappilyMarried
* IdiotBall: Normally, he's smarter than Jerid and better at keeping himself together, but when [[spoiler: re-entering the atmosphere]], ''he'' calls Jerid a coward and instead decides to see if he can get an easy kill. [[spoiler: Re-entry is not the time to be playing games, and he pays for it with his life.]]
* KickTheDog: Downplayed. When Bright voices his displeasure at Bask's actions, Kacricon hits him. Though compared to the violent beating Bask and the others deal out, Kacricon's actions come across as an evil version of [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan the Bright Slap]] than the cruelty the others got into.
* KilledOffForReal: Kamille [[spoiler:slashes his reentry parachute, and he burns up in the atmosphere.]]
* MentorOccupationalHazard
* VillainousFriendship: He and Jerid are very friendly with each other. Notably when Jamaican orders Kacricon to discipline Jerid for his failure and take charge Kacricon makes it clear that he's going to look for an opening to deploy Jerid so he can get a win under his belt and get back in the leadership's good graces.

!!Ben Wooder

Acting captain of the ''Sudori'', Ben Wooder and his crew pursue Kamille and Amuro throughout the former's time on Earth. A dedicated officer, Wooder has an antagonistic relationship with Four Murasame, the Cyber-Newtype sent to help him.
%%* TheCaptain
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: See VillainousValour below.
%%* EliteMook
* TheGoodCaptain: He's a bad person, but he sincerely seems to care [[AFatherToHisMen about his men and the mission.]]
* JurisdictionFriction: ZigZagged. He's a Titan officer serving under a Federation commander, Buran, but he respects Buran and there's no real enmity there [[spoiler:Wooder even promises to avenge him after Buran is killed]]. When Four enters the picture he clashes with her, and has a distaste for Cyber-Newtypes and Four's ignoring of his orders.
* JustFollowingOrders: Fully believes that a soldier's task is to follow any and all orders he receives, regardless of their morality.
* KickTheDog: Frustrated with the lack of cooperation by the Hong Kong authorities with the capture of the AEUG he has the city bombed and drops the Psycho Gundam on top of it.
* LastNameBasis: The only character other than Scirocco to be called by his last name.
* ManipulativeBastard: Perfectly willing to hold Four's desire for her memory over her head.
%%* MauveShirt
* SmugSnake: He's arrogant, overconfident, and more than willing to use Four's desire to get her memories back against her.
* VillainousValour: When Four goes AWOL, Wooder pilots the Psyco Gundam into combat himself, despite not being a Newtype and having no real idea of how to use it. At the end, with all his mobile suits shot down, and Four and the Psyco out of commission, he orders everyone off the ship, and attempts to crash it into the ''Audhumla'' to stop it from escaping. The members of his crew who stay behind with him display similar valor.
* WouldHurtAChild: He captures Mirai, Hathaway, and Cheimin and holds them hostage, in order to get the AEUG forces he's pursuing to surrender. Mirai is clearly (and naturally) frightened for her children and repeatedly tells the soldiers not to touch them. Wooder later has them all put in a small boat in the middle of a battlefield while pretending to release them.

!!Gates Capa
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KazukiYao
->'''Main mecha:''' Baund Doc (grey)

The last of the Cyber-Newtypes, Gates is seemingly cheerful young man who isn't above using his manipulative skills to get what he wants. He works for Bask and the Titans researcher Loren Nakamoto, and is Rosamia Badam's partner in the last stages of the war.
* AffablyEvil: Cheerful, open, and utterly dedicated to the Titans' cause. He'd be a great kid to be friends with if he weren't helping the government experiment on young girls.
* BigBrotherMentor: Subverted, as [[spoiler:Rosamia is brainwashed into seeing him as one.]]
* BoringButPractical: He doesn't have nearly the power of Rosamia or Four, but he's also much less likely to descend into the mental breakdowns both ladies are famous for.
%%* DrugsAreBad
%%* EnigmaticMinion
* FlawedPrototype: His NRX-055-1 Baund Doc is the prototype that Rosamia and Jerid's models (the NRX-055) are based off of: it's notable for being the only one [[SuperPrototype with a two-seater cockpit]] and the only one that's never seen to transform into mobile suit mode.
* LightningBruiser: His Baund Doc
* ManipulativeBastard: Has no problems using Rosamia's need for a brother to help keep her under control.
* OnlySaneMan: In comparison to the rest of the Cyber-Newtypes.
* PsychicLink: With Rosamia
* PsychicPowers: He's a Cyber-Newtype.
%%* PunchClockVillain
%%* SuperSerum
%%* SuperSoldier
* ThoseTwoGuys: He's usually stuck with handler Loren Nakamoto.
%%* {{Tykebomb}}
* VillainousBSOD: In the anime, [[spoiler:Rosamia's death sends him into one. In the novels, the psychic backlash created by the same incident ''kills him''.]]
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Showed up for a grand total of ''two'' episodes, and is absent from the movie remake altogether.
%%* WhatHappenedToTheMouse
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: The only Cyber-Newtype to avert this trope. But to be fair, [[BoringButPractical he doesn't seem to have such "Great Power"]] in first place.

!!Gady Kinsey
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Naoki Immamura (Japanese), Steve Olson (English)
Jamaican's replacement as captain of the ''Alexandria''.
%%* TheCaptain
* EnemyMine: Initially dislikes Scirocco but eventually has his ship join up with the former's fleet. [[spoiler:In the movies, Scirocco trusts him enough to let him come along with his other loyal retainers to the meeting with Axis.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: In Episode 42 he claims his ship has engine problems and can't help with the gassing of a colony.
* LaserGuidedKarma: He lets Haman disable the Colony Laser then the AEUG takes it back from Haman and proceed to fire it, killing Gady and destroying his ship.
%%* NiceHat
* SmugSnake: Though higher functioning than Jamaican.

[[folder:Dunkel & Ramsus]]
!!Dunkel Cooper & Ramsus Hasa

->'''Main mecha:''' Hambrabi

Yazan Gable's wingmates during the later stages of the conflict, Ensigns Dunkel and Ramsus share their superior officer's aggression and love of violence.

%%* {{Ace Pilot}}s
* BadassNormal: Both are Oldtypes.
* BirdsOfAFeather: Why they can get along with Yazan.
* {{Combat Pragmatist}}s: Like Yazan, Dunkel and Ramsus don't play fair, double or triple teaming enemies whenever they can.
* ExtraEyes: The Hambrabi has five of them.
* KilledOffForReal: By [[spoiler:Emma Sheen, moments before Yazan kills her.]]
* [[PsychoForHire Psychos For Hire]]
* SlasherSmile: Ramsus favors Reccoa with a pretty good one in Episode 38.

* TerribleTrio: Alongside Yazan
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: With one another.
* TransformingMecha: The RX-139 Hambrabi, which converts from a fast moving mobile armor to an equally quick mobile suit.
* VillainousFriendship: Seem to get along well with one another.

!Other Earth Federation Personnel

!!Lila Milla Rira
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MayumiAsano (JP, movies).
->'''Main mecha:''' Galbady Beta

A tough take-no-prisoners type who is assigned to assist the Titans early on. She shows the still-rookie Jerid a thing or two and then gets blown to smithereens by Kamille.

* AceCustom: Averted. Her red mobile suit is a stock Galbaldy Beta.
* BadassNormal: In the sense that she's not a Newtype.
* ColonelKilgore: She's accused of being one by Jamaican, but it's clearly meant as an insult.
* HeelFaceTurn: You can see her ''starting'' to have one, after seeing 30 Bunch with her own eyes. The shock of it contributes to her death. Still,[[spoiler: she gets a brief cameo in the finale as one of the spirits summoned by Kamille, implying she did indeed get over her some of her enmity towards him after she died.]]
* ILetGwenStacyDie: To Jerid. Kamille's not happy about it either.
* MauveShirt: She's clearly an excellent pilot, and her death is played as bad luck on her part.
* MsFanservice: In the short time that she appears before she gets killed the viewer manages to see her breasts.
* ShowerScene: Gets the first one of the TV series. (As a result, we get to see what a ShowerScene in space would realistically look like.)
* WeHardlyKnewYe: Only gets a couple of episodes to do anything in.

!!Buran Blutarch
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Hidetoshi Nakamura
->'''Main mecha:''' Asshimar

A Federation officer seconded to the Titans and the initial commander of the ''Sudori'', Buran takes in Rosamia Badam after her initial run at the ''Audhumla'' is unsuccessful.
* AnArmAndALeg: His Asshimar loses a leg when Amuro strikes him with a shuttle. It gets repaired in the next episode.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Notably he views the AEUG as antagonists rather than villains. When Rosamia voices her fears that they will ultimately drop a colony onto earth, Buran disagrees and argues that such a cruel act wouldn't be in the AEUG's nature.
* ExtraEyes: The Asshimar appears to be a typical mono-eye, but it has three extra sub-eyes that follow tracks along the inside of its triangular face. It's somewhat more apparent when Kamille smashes its optic with his spray shot.
* FantasticRacism: He has an issue with Spacenoids and refers to the AEUG as Space Invaders.
* LightningBruiser: The Asshimar is a big, bulky, and very fast Mobile Suit. It allows Buran to run circles around the AEUG Mobile Suits all the while blasting them with powerful beam weapons. They try to exploit a chink in his armor during transformation, but both times it only slows him down and the suit is still very functional after.
* MauveShirt: Buran is a named and characterized MookLieutenant who pursues the crew for a couple of episodes after Jaburo.
* PunchClockVillain: In comparison to many of the villainous Federation members, Buran's just a man doing his job. He's patient with his soldiers and doesn't agree with the Titan propaganda about the AEUG being evil. Notably he welcomes Rosamia's team in in spite of the longstanding JurisdictionFriction between Titan and Federation troops. Rosamia's strange and overly-grateful nature puts him off but he never voices this as not to be rude.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: He's entirely pragmatic about the AEUG, and kind to Rosamia, despite a general unenthusiasm for having Cyber-Newtypes or the Titans in general.
* TransformationIsAFreeAction: Averted. The Asshimar transforms pretty quickly so it's not often an issue but at one point Kamille lands a hit on him while the MS's chest armor is still folding up. Even when being blasted at an unarmored part, the Asshimar was still able to function.
* TransformingMecha: The Asshimar, one of the first transforming mobile suits that the protagonists fight. They even comment on how odd it is to see as they'd only previously encountered Scirocco's machine.


!!Haman Karn
->'''Main mecha:''' Qubeley
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Yoshiko Sakakibara (Japanese), Valerie Howell (English), Tracy Sutton (EN, VideoGame/DynastyWarriorsGundam)
->''The proof of our might will be forever etched in your minds.''

The leader of the Axis Zeon, Haman Khan is a former associate of Char Aznable's, and regent for Mineva Lao Zabi. She arrives midway through the series and plays both sides of the conflict against one another before eventually siding with the Titans (or more specifically, with Scirocco). She is the BigBad of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ'' (see ''ZZ'''s character sheet for more on that)
* AcePilot: She is a highly skilled pilot, being able to fight evenly with Kamille and [[spoiler: actually defeating Char at the end of ''Zeta'']].
%%* AstralProjection
* {{Attack Drone}}s: Better known as 'funnels', they're the main weapon of her personal mobile suit, the Qubeley.
* TheBadGuyWins: [[spoiler: As of the end of ''Zeta''. The Titans have been destroyed, the AEUG are in shambles and on the run, and she's personally defeated Char. Fortunately, the ''Argama'' gets a chance to continue the fight in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ''.]]
%%* TheBaroness
* BigBadDuumvirate: She and [[spoiler:Scirocco are shaping up to be one by the end.]]
* BrokenPedestal: Char was a ''massive'' one for her. The way she sees it, he ran away from his responsibilities on Axis to play pilot with the AEUG, leaving her, then a sixteen-year-old girl, to run a quasi-fascist dictatorship on her own. There are indications that she might not be completely wrong.
* CelebCrush: On Char Aznable, when she was a young girl.
* TheChessmaster: She's good enough to give Char, Jamitov, and even Scirocco cause for concern.
* CorruptionOfAMinor: Her control of Mineva hasn't had a good effect on the little girl. [[spoiler:Char calling her out for it leads her to [[GiveHerANormalLife attempt to reverse the damage]].]] This also forms her own backstory, along with a hefty helping of BreakTheCutie — being forced to become an absolute dictator at sixteen will do that to a person.
* DualWielding: The Qubeley's lack of a shield and incorporation of a detached ranged weapons system allows her do this a lot.
* DuelToTheDeath: Proposes one to Char, but he [[TakeAThirdOption takes a third option]] via [[spoiler:trying to kill both of them]].
* EvilChancellor: To Mineva. As is typical for the trope, she's the real power behind the throne.
%%* EvilRedhead
* GloriousLeader: Of Neo-Zeon. See the ''ZZ'' character sheet for more details on that.
* HeroWorshipper: Formerly, of Char, overlapping with a CelebCrush. This took a massive beating after he left to join the AEUG (leaving her to pick up the pieces back on Axis), but there's still a bit of a spark there.
* HopeSpot: [[spoiler:During her psychic duel with Kamille. She's ''just about'' to [[HeelFaceTurn embrace the promising vision he offers]], but reconsiders at the last second, saying "It's too easy".]]
* IdenticalStranger: It's never touched on but Haman looks like a pink-haired version of Char's sister, Sayla. Which would make her romantic interest in him rather problematic.
* IfICantHaveYou: Towards Char. Interestingly, it's not just romantic — she's painfully aware of how major a political player he could be if he applied himself.
* ImprobableAge: She's only twenty years old, according to Char, which is pretty young to be leading Axis. But it becomes clear very quickly that she's more than qualified for her position.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Even Char acknowledges that her anger at him for leaving her to run Axis when she was just a teenager isn't all that unreasonable, given how warped her personality became from the pressure.
* ItsPersonal: Her and Char. She also develops a major grudge towards Kamille by the end.
* KarmaHoudini: As of the end of ''Zeta''.
%%* LadyOfWar
* LightIsNotGood: The Qubeley boasts a mostly-white scheme. It's wielded by the person who [[spoiler:manages to become the biggest threat to the Federation and galactic peace at that point]].
* TheManBehindTheMan: Uses Mineva Zabi as a PuppetKing and figurehead while she runs the show. No one's really fooled, but that doesn't matter to Haman.
%%* ManipulativeBastard
* MisanthropeSupreme: Haman hates people in general, and plans to grind the human race under her jackboots as punishment for their perceived failings.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Her attitude towards Jamitov. In two out of three meetings she tries to kill him - the third time, [[spoiler:Scirocco does the job for her and lets her take the blame. Notably, she doesn't object to this.]]
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: Able to sense the presence of other New Types.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: If you accept that her last name should be translated as Khan. She is also named after [[BiblicalBadGuy Haman from the Book of Esther]], who tried to talk a Persian king into massacring the Jews.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Gives Char the beating of his life during their climactic confrontation, wrecking the Hyaku-Shiki in minutes while taking no damage herself, and forcing Char to attempt a MutualKill.
* PlayingBothSides: Haman is actively courted by both the AEUG and the Titans. She could not care less about either of them, but actively plays them both to her own advantage.
* PuppetKing: She was chosen to replace her deceased father, Maharajah Khan, as governor of Axis at the age of sixteen in order to give the ambitious Zeon military command someone easy to control. [[GoneHorriblyWrong It... didn't work out so well.]]
%%* PsychicLink
* PsychicPowers: She's a Newtype, like most of the other major players in Zeta. Her abilities include:
* RegentForLife: Whether or not Haman intends to give up her position as regent or not isn't explored (as Mineva is only seven) but she certainly gives off this vibe.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is her last name Karn, Kahn, or Khan?
* SuperPrototype: Her Qubeley.
* {{Technopath}}: Only in her Qubeley, and with the aid of the Qubeley's psycommu system.
* TomboyishName: The original Haman was a man.
* {{Tsundere}}: Towards Char, bordering on {{Yandere}}. She has very good reasons for both admiring and disliking him.
* UnusualWeaponMounting: The Qubeley stores its funnels in a protruding abdomen, giving the mobile suit a decidedly insectoid appearance.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: If the ''Char's Deleted Affair'' manga by the show's animation director is to be believed, she was once a cheerful, sweet-natured GenkiGirl with a starry-eyed crush on the Red Comet. [[BreakTheCutie Then her father died and Char left, so she was put in charge of Axis...]]
* VillainousCrush: Used to have one on Char, and despite his perceived betrayal, a bit of the spark's still there.
* WildCard: Which side Axis Zeon will join is a major plot point.
* WomanScorned: To Char, and ''how''.
* TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask: Forced to do so by becoming dictator of Axis at [[ImprobableAge the young age of sixteen]].
* {{Yandere}}: She really can't decide if she's still in love with Char, wants to kill him, or both.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Pink, actually.

!!Mineva Lao Zabi
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MikiIto (JP), Katie Rowan (EN)

->''I request that you assist us in reviving the Zabi family.''

Dozle Zabi's daughter, Mineva is the last living member of the Zabi family. While she appears to be the ruler of Zeon, it quickly becomes apparent that the seven year old girl is totally under the domination of her regent Haman. She reappears in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamUnicorn'', as a teenager named Audrey Burne.
* AntiquatedLinguistics: Bordering on SpockSpeak at times. This is partly because she doesn't write her own speeches.
* AChildShallLeadThem: Subverted, she's just a figurehead.
* BodyDouble: By the end of the Gryps Conflict [[spoiler:the real Mineva has been spirited away and replaced with a double, and the switch isn't discovered until the end of the 1st Neo Zeon War.]]
* CreepyChild - EnfanteTerrible: Played with. Mineva's a child, and she's the dictatorial head of TheRemnant of TheEmpire. Yet she's also a genuinely scared and lonely little girl who's totally dependent on Haman Khan and simply does not know how life is like outside of Zeon.
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses: No it isn't. In fact, being a the Zabi princess makes her life ''suck''.
* [[LastOfHisKind Last Of Her Kind]]: She's the last Zabi.
* PuppetKing: For Haman.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: As you can see in the accompanying illustration she seem to be... er, outgrowing that fancy Zeon outfit a bit fast for a seven year old.


!!Kai Shiden
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ToshioFurukawa (JP), Scott Roberts (EN)

A veteran of the One Year War, Kai was one of the ''White Base'''s top pilots, alongside Amuro Ray and Sayla Mass. He returns in ''Zeta'' as a journalist/AEUG spy, operating in the rainforest.
* BadassInANiceSuit: Kai looked pretty badass saving Reccoa from some soldiers while wearing a white suit in the middle of a jungle.
* BigDamnHeroes: His first appearance has him saving Reccoa from some soldiers who had captured her.
* DeadpanSnarker: Not surprising. Made snarkier in the dub. He says pounding on his cell and calling for help makes him feel better.
* DemotedToExtra: Like all of his former crewmates, his role in ''Zeta'' is considerably smaller than in the previous series.
* FaceOfAThug: It's better than it was when he was a kid, but at the end of the day, Kai still looks as though his paycheck is coming from a Mafia Don.
* GunTwirling: In an EstablishingCharacterMoment, still has the tic from last series. Identifies him even before he introduces himself.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: He may have left his piloting days behind with White Base, but Kai's clearly seen his share of adventures and become more badass down the line.
* IntrepidReporter: And he can appear anywhere at any time, including the Vatican!
* KnightInSourArmour: He actually seems to have cheered up a shade or two from being TheEeyore of the last show, but then he doesn't have to be a soldier anymore.
%%* ManInWhite
* OlderAndWiser: Still cynical, snarky, and bitter, but he is willing to give far more of a damn about things, care who he allies himself with, and be far less of a needless loudmouthed jerk.
* SharpDressedMan: White suit, fedora, and tie.
* TookALevelInBadass: Holy ''cow'' Kai does a complete 180 in time for ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' and the various sidestories going on at that point. Stylish, competent, able to engage in tactical espionage action ''in the RAINFOREST'' in a ''white'' business suit, all while juggling a career of journalism. To top it off, in sidestories like ''Manga/MobileSuitZetaGundamDayAfterTomorrow'' he comes off as a freaking UC ''James Bond'' without his own mobile suit while he kicks copious amounts of ass.
* WhipItGood: In his first appearance, where he uses a whip on one of the men who was threatening Reccoa.
* YoureNotMyType: Although Reccoa is grateful for Kai's rescue of her, she remains unimpressed by his attempts to flirt. She also coldly calls him out for presuming to be on a first name basis with her.

!!Frau Bow (Kobayashi)
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Rumiko Ukai (Japanese), Kristin Nowosad (English)

Amuro's best friend and former fellow ''White Base'' crewmember, Frau visits him with her children as he's in Federation custody in Cheyenne and gives him a critical emotional lift to escape.
* AbsurdlyYouthfulMother: She's 22 or 23 tops, and she has a 15-year-old son. Not to mention a 13-year-old son and an 11-year-old daughter. (She was mothering these kids when ''she'' was 15, so at least she's had practice.)
* AdoptivePeerParent: With Hayato for the ''White Base'' kids Katz, Letz, and Kikka, which is why she is the above.
* AnywhereButTheirLips: A meaningful kiss on the cheek from Amuro in-series or a close embrace in the first movie -- but still it's referred to in side materials and by everyone involved as "the kiss scene". [[WordofGod Except]] by Tomino, [[InsistentTerminology who disagrees]].
* BabiesMakeEverythingBetter: No, they don't, really. Frau's pregnancy is portrayed in a positive light, but it's certainly not doing anything to fix the rest of her chaotic life. She chides Amuro that he "doesn't know anything about it", and says she needs to raise the child to be strong. As it happens, [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse we never see the kid.]]
** Amuro still says ''"have a good kid for me"'' in the movies.
* BettyAndVeronica: ''Is'' the Betty to Amuro's Archie and Bel's Veronica, but her marriage to Hayato would not only make a relationship adulterous, but just plain hard. She's the more distant, "complicated" one.
** From a different triangle, it's Frau (Archie), Hayato (Betty), and Amuro (Veronica). Then there's yet ''another'' BettyAndVeronicaSwitch when Hayato gets insecure and [[spoiler:tragedy eventually happens]] (Amuro has, of course, been her childhood BFF all along).
* DidTheyOrDidntThey: It's ridiculously difficult to tell whether her relationship with Amuro is platonic, {{UST}}, or romantic, now or ever; including the two episodes she appears in. ShrugOfGod continues to be the most you get from Tomino.
* {{Expy}}: Play it again -- A woman whose husband is fighting with LaResistance meets her OldFlame, involved in a nest of spies, who wants nothing to do with the current conflict. (There's also a famous goodbye at the airport.) Tomino decided to hit a few notes from Ilsa Lund and ''{{Film/Casablanca}}''.
* {{Foil}}: To Beltorchika Irma, in terms of dress, behavior, influence on Amuro, and just about anything you can think of. Highlighted when she's shown together with her and Amuro at the end of the final film.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Frau teases Amuro about "still having a thing for Sayla". Aside from some never-specified in-show context (Amuro immediately changes the subject), that's either a ShoutOut to Tomino's ''completely different novel continuity'' of '''the last show''' (the only one where Amuro and Sayla are romantically involved. [[MediumAwareness Amuro doesn't want to talk about it because he]] [[spoiler:also dies]]), OR it's a CallBack to Sayla bringing up Amuro's feelings for Frau in a late episode of ''Mobile Suit Gundam'' -- and Amuro immediately changing the subject!
* LoveTriangle: Married to Hayato and six months pregnant with his child, but she is only ever seen/portrayed with Amuro, and openly confesses to wanting more time with him; WordOfGod has Amuro inwardly pissed at MomentKiller Katz.
* MarriageOfConvenience: With Hayato sometime post-0079 for the sake of Katz, Letz, and Kikka. This is very explicitly WordOfGod as this, and not romantic.
* MeaningfulRename: Invoked twice by Amuro. First, he calls her "Frau Kobayashi" just to point out a) she's married, b) she's not married to ''him'', c) and she's married to '''Hayato''' -- all of which surprised the 1985 audience. In the following episode, he calls her "Frau Bow" again, like he did for ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' -- a sign that things are more the way they used to be, or that he [[ChildhoodFriend really just can't see]] her as anyone else.
* SheIsAllGrownUp: Being 22 instead of 15 (like last series) makes a difference. Amuro notices.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The baby she's expecting has never been seen or referred to.

!!Mirai Yashima (Noa)
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Fuyumi Shiraishi (Japanese), Mariette Sluyter (English)

Former pilot of ''White Base'' and now married to a famous Federation defector, Mirai and her two small children are trying to stay out of harm's way. They meet Amuro again in New Hong Kong.
* DemotedToSatelliteLoveInterest: In the original ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'', she took on the important role of first mate and helmsman of the [[SuperPrototype White Base]]. But when she reappears in ''Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam'' as Mr. Bright's wife, she makes very few appearances, instead staying on Earth to take care of her children, and even though her husband soon becomes one of the key figures of [[LaResistance AEUG]].
* HostageSituation: She ''and'' her children are [[spoiler:kidnapped and put in a small boat near a battlefield, meaning that they can either potentially be killed by friendly/enemy fire or drown if their boat is sunk. They manage to survive (though little Hathaway falls into the sea and his mother has to give him CPR).]]
* HappilyMarried - LovedINotHonorMore: Despite Beltochika completely failing to understand this, and being physically separated from her spacebound spouse, Mirai shows a great deal of care for Bright, saying that she raises their two children taking his wishes and feelings into consideration as though he were there. In fact, Beltochika asks her how can that be possible, so Mirai calmly explains that she and her kids know well how hard Bright and Co. are fighting out there.
* SilkHidingSteel: The woman almost ''never'' loses her cool, whether it's towards [[InnocentlyInsensitive Beltochika]] saying too much, or towards [[spoiler:the HostageSituation she and her kids are forced in.]]
* YamatoNadeshiko: With ''heavy'' emphasis on the will of iron that goes along with "serenity, patience, grace, and acceptance" while her husband is away.

[[folder:Hathaway & Chemin]]
!!Hathaway and Cheimin Noa
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Brett Bauer and Caitlynne Medrik (English)

Bright and Mirai's son and daughter.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: Hathaway is around six years old and Cheimin is no older than five, and they're so very cute and unaware of what's going on. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack This does not last]]. ''[[Literature/MobileSuitGundamHathawaysFlash At all]]''.
* EveryGirlIsCuterWithHairDecs: Cheimin has a pink hairbow
* PinkMeansFeminine: And a pink dress, too.

!!Wong Lee
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Yukimasa Natori (Japanese, TV), Kazumi Tanaka (Japanese, Movies), Dean Galloway (English)

An overbearing representative of Anaheim Electronics sent as a liaison with the AEUG fleet.
* AssInAmbassador: He's a representative of Anaheim Electronics, which gives the AEUG considerable funding. This in turn gives Wong a lot of nominal authority, which he abuses pretty much all the time.
* BadassNormal: Said to be a practitioner of Kung Fu (see above) and casually kicked Kamille's ass (himself a karate practitioner and also a Newtype).
* BreakTheHaughty: Downplayed- Bright puts him in his place during a major operation when Wong lets his own authority get to his head and Bright calls the latter out for his combat inexperience. In ''Gundam ZZ'', Wong tries to give Judau Ashta the same asskicking he gave Kamille for slacking off, only to get Kneed in the gut by the latter and left writhing.
* BrutalHonesty: ''All the time''. Needless to say, it gets right under the ''Argama'' crew's skin.
* JerkAss: Though he had a pretty good reason to beat up Kamille he is pushy and and a jerk to a lot of people on the Argama.
* JerkAssHasAPoint: He's actually got the right idea (or, at least, a well-reasoned one that's worth considering) most of the time. It's pretty much the only reason nobody on the ''Argama'' ever tries to shove him out of an airlock.
* PetTheDog: Gave Shinta and Qum drinks and said children shouldn't be afraid to ask for things.
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Shoves his weight around the ''Argama'' by saying that the AEUG's allies, Anaheim Electronics, would support him on his attack plans. Even if they were dumb.
* SternTeacher: Shades of this before getting Flanderized into a total jerk ass later in the series.

!!Stephanie Luio
!!!'''Voiced by:''' Mako Yuda (Japanese, TV), Rio Natsuki (Japanese, Movies), Debbie Munroe (English)

A businesswoman who runs New Hong Kong's Luio Company and funds Karaba.
* GenderFlip: Of Wong Lee, supposedly; Kamille refers to her as such after she slapped him for seeming insubordination.
* IronLady: She runs her family's corporation, deals with politicians, and funds and funnels supplies to Karaba on the side. (Complete with TheEighties version of PowerHair and a blazer.) Unhesitatingly sics her goons on Amuro the second he mentions her father's name in public.
* TeamMom: She does show a more maternal side eventually to Kamille and the Noa kids, as well as arranging passage to a safer location for Mirai, Hathaway and Cheimin. Also to Karaba in general, considering how she's shown as a major donor and supplier.
* TheOjou: With a tougher upgrade. See above and below.
* RelatedInTheAdaptation: In the movies she's Wong's daughter, which makes Kamille's comment in the series about being a GenderFlip of Wong Lee all the funnier.
* ShipTease: A surprising amount packed into her sole episode with Amuro.
* TheTriadsAndTheTongs: She has goons at the ready and her company is also a front for all sorts of illegal activity. ''"This is Hong Kong City. You can't trust anyone."''

!!Sayla Mass

Now living by the ocean in Africa, Char's younger sister is seemingly the quietest of the former ''White Base'' crew.
* TheCameo: She only gets a brief scene as TheVoiceless listening to Char's speech at Dakar on a radio, since her actor You Inoue was unavailable. In the movies, she's lying by a resort pool and has a meeting with Kai, with a few pre-recorded lines since Inoue was [[ActorExistenceFailure deceased]] by 2004.
** [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ The sequel]] does make it clear that she's NonIdleRich, but you'd never know it here.
