Awesome Music: GUNDAM

Mobile Suit Gundam (Gundam 0079)

Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory

  • The very aptly named Men of Destiny.
  • The Winner is nothing to scoff at either.
  • We later get Oblivion from the same source as Men of Destiny. It uses the exact same instrumental, but rather than simply dubbing the lyrics into English, new somewhat apocalyptic, yet still awesomely GAR, lyrics were written, effectively making it a new song. Also somewhat unique for an English song, it was used in the original Japanese version of the show, and has perfect grammar and pronunciation. And it is freaking awesome.
  • Assault Waves, the perfect music to have epic MS duels to.
  • Dendrobium is amazing as well.

08th MS Team

Zeta Gundam

  • Awesome 80's music with the Opening Themes Zeta - Transcending Times and From an Aqueous Star with Love, both of which were co-written by Neil Sedaka.
    • The movies are no slouch in the OP department either. Case in point: the first movie opens with the awesome song "Metamorphoze" from Gackt, of which there exists a recursive adaptation in the form of the song's official music video, containing actual footage from the movie.
  • The Pulse of Zeta, which was used as the opening theme for the English version. For some fans it elevated Zeta to the halls of awesome space opera that gives Star Wars a run for its money.
  • A.E.U.G., which contains a few motifs from "Pulse of Zeta", is no slouch either.
  • Riders in the Skies, which plays during the climax of the finale.

Gundam SEED

Gundam SEED Astray

Gundam SEED Destiny

  • Ignited. Probably kicks a lot of ass in terms of awesomeness.
  • PRIDE (the second opening theme) by HIGH and MIGHTY COLOR. Hell yes.
    • Life Goes On is also filled with awesome, and has more variations used in the episodes than the other ending themes. Kimi wa Boku ni Niteiru is also excellent, and is the only ending theme to be used in the series and the Special Editions.
  • Reason, the first ending theme, is Hot-Blooded to the max.
  • Kanashimi no Stella is heartbreakingly beautiful.
    • And then we have Stella's image song, Shinkai no Kodoku. Just as pretty, and just as heartbreaking.
  • Youki to Bishoumi is what makes Dearka, Yzak and Athrun teaming up again so awesome early on in the series.
  • Kyouki no Hate, played when the Destroy goes on its horror-laden rampage.
  • Kuroi Hadou, Shinn's battle theme towards the end, complete with Ominous Latin Chanting.
  • Sakebi to Gekitetsu, played as Athrun and Mu race to destroy the Requiem. The finale of Destiny doesn't measure up to the one in SEED, but the music for it certainly does.
  • Gaia x Chaos x Abyss, the theme for the Extendeds early on in the show (coincidentally, this is when they're legitimately badass).
  • Launch! Impulse is a majestic theme for a Gundam launching sequence. It is reused as one of Shinn's themes in SD Gundam Generation Wars.
  • Kira, Just As He Pleases. Kira may have taken some actions during Destiny that were questionable, but his theme music is unquestionably badass.
  • No matter what you think of Lacus Clyne during Destiny, you cannot deny that Fields of hope is one of the most beautiful songs ever featured in a Gundam show.
  • Honoo no Tobira is Akatsuki no Kuruma's triumphant successor, played right as Cagalli pilots the Akatsuki for the first time to defend Orb from ZAFT.

Gundam 00

Gundam AGE

Gundam Build Fighters

  • Just a few episodes in and the opening, BACK-ON's "Nibun no Ichi" proves to be a refreshingly welcome addition to the growing list of memorable Gundam songs.
  • The 2nd opening, "wimp" by BACK-ON and featuring Lil' Fang from FAKY is filled with meaningful lyrics, and the opening animation matches the song well.
  • Tatsuya Yuuki's theme "The Crimson Comet ~ The Usual Flamenco at Three Times the Passion". Nothing quite like a little bit of flamenco to cement Yuuki as a badass Gunpla fighter.
    • And if that's not enough for you, there's always "Meijin ~ The Usual Flamenco at Six Times the Passion".
  • "Allied Force", which perfectly fits its use in Episode 15, chronicling Fellini & Fenice's history together, and their Heroic Second Wind.
  • When "1/48" plays, you know shit is about to get real. This perfectly fits the intimidating nature of the 1/48 Mega Size Zaku II. It's also a striking track during the first half of Reiji vs. Aila in Episode 21.
  • "Aila" is nothing short of a beautiful, emotional theme for said character. The heartwrenching tone of the song works incredibly well when Reiji learns the truth about Aila.
  • "Quick Attack", the main battle theme, is perfectly suited for the fast-paced battles - and that's before the Ominous Latin Chanting kicks in.
