- First Guy Wins and Victorious Childhood Friend: He is the very first boy that Marie knew personally and befriended. And they end up together.
- He's Back

who fought with Celestial Being as a Gundam Meister. He is initially an Aloof Ally
to the other CB members but recieved a great amount of Character Development
thanks to his
interactions with the original Lockon Stratos, Neil Dylandy. He then found himself fighting and killing fellow Innovades
when he refused to join them in their quest for World Domination
, siding with the humans instead. Near the end of the series, the rogue Innovades' leader
gunned him to death, but with help from his until-then Evil Twin
, he was able to upload his conscience inside Veda.

- Combining Mecha: See Back-to-Back Badasses above.
- Death Is Cheap: As for all other Innovades. It's still useful this time around.
- Detachment Combat: The Seravee II.
- Fan Nickname: "Vowels", because his name is full of 'em. Also "Moeria", because his fangirls think he looks adorable when he's upset. Also, mostly on the Japanese Fandom, "Zetsubou-Sensei", especially after the Lampshading Shout-Out in one of the SZS episodes.
- Four Is Death
- Genius Bruiser

Voiced by Ayahi Takagaki
(Japanese) and Chantal Strand
- All Love Is Unrequited: She develops feelings for Setsuna, who is more or less asexual.
- Bridge Bunny
- Crowning Moment OF Heartwarming: Many with Setsuna. Unfortunately it isn't resolved.

- Expy: Her appearance in this movie is similar to Lunamaria Hawke.
- Generation Xerox: Like her mother, she fell in love with a Gundam meister. In her case, twice.
- Green Eyes
- Improbable Age: Finally averted as she's now 21 years old.

- What Happened to the Mouse?: Her feelings regarding Setsuna is left unresolved. Boo!
- When She Smiles
- Wrench Wench: Her background info implies she is one, stating that she has a wealth of mechanics related knowledge, and can troubleshoot a GN drive. Pity we only get to see her use said knowledge a few times, also implied though her finding more comfort in dealing with machines (Haros mainly) rather than people.

Louise's long-time boyfriend
whose life changed drastically because of Celestial Being. In the first season, he used to live a normal life with his late Hot Scoop
sister right next door to Setsuna's until
his girlfriend got badly hurt and eventually
his sister killed. In season 2, he was Mistaken for Terrorist

and Sixth Ranger
to Celestial Being at the time, and accused him
as a CB spy from the start. Fortunately, they got better.
Voiced by Chiwa Saito
(Japanese) and Kelly Sheridan
- The Atoner: According to Word of God, she's living her life with the intention of making up for all the crazy shit she pulled with the A-Laws.
- Blue Blood
- Broken Bird: Though more stable than she used to be.
- Chickification: Averted. Yes, she's ill again, but we already know that being a Dark Action Girl REALLY wasn't too good for her physical and mental health. And we got to see it in all details, therefore her situation does not fulfill the main requirement: to be pushed aside of action without valid in-story justification.
- Damsel in Distress: She is one of the people being targeted by the ELS because they are homing in on her Quantum Brainwaves. Naturally, she's not the only one, but she's definitely one of the most prominent due to her importance as a character. As a result, Saji and Setsuna have to rescue her from an ELS that has taken the form of a familiar looking Innovade.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Due to the events in the series.
- Demoted to Extra
- Evolutionary Levels: She is a Pseudo-Innovator.
- Expository Hairstyle Change: She grows her hair back to its original (season 1) length.
- Ill Girl: Due to Ribbons' medication. Fortunately, she's getting better.
- Last Of Her Kind: She is the Halevy clan's only survivor after Nena's attack. And since she reconciled with Saji, who she is engaged with, the Halevy clan will be extinct surname wise when they do marry since she and their would be children will most likely use Saji's (Crossroad) last name. Unless she and Saji reach an agreement about it per a Japanese custom that allows a man who's marrying an only daughter of a higher social standard to be "adopted" into her family and renouce his family name. The fact that this is also the year 2311 might also help; a man taking a woman's family name probably isn't too unheard of, considering it's common enough for people in most first-world countries now to think it little more than a curiosity.
- Patrick took Kati's last name, so there's even more reason.
- Latin Lover: Still subverted because she still doesn't act like one towards Saji.
- The Ojou
- Parental Abandonment
- Rapunzel Hair
- Shell-Shocked Veteran: Outright stated to have PTSD.
The former leader
of the Katharon Rebel Group
which opposed the Earth Sphere Federation
and its elite squad A-Laws
. He is now an ESF representative.
Voiced by Tokuyoshi Kawashima (Japanese) and Alistair Abell (English)
A female high school student who is infected by ELS in a half of the body. The Earth Sphere Federation takes her unconscious body as a sample in order to learn more about the ELS.

Extraterrestrial Living-Metal Shape-Shifters (ELS)
The ELS is a race of techno-organic sentient aliens that has the unique abilities to assimilate/infect nearly all life and technology. They appear as a silver metallic organisms that can take solid or liquid-like forms.
- Aliens Are Bastards: Averted. They honestly didn't know they were hurting humanity by their actions, and they stop the instant they find out they are.
- Assimilation Plot: Or is it?
- Blue and Orange Morality: They really do not seem to understand the value humans place on individual lives. Or on individuality. In fact, it might be said that they are just as confused by the nature of human life as we are by them.
- Body Horror: Those assimilated by them undergoes this.
- Ditto Aliens: As shapeshifters, they can take any form they want. Despite this, there are a few basic forms they seem to prefer as defaults. Two ELS taking the same shape are completely indistinguishable from one another, at least to human eyes.
- Doomed Planet: The end reveals that their homeworld's star went supernova, which explains why they came to the Sol System.
- Expy: Their design are like Vorlon ships.
- Fan Nickname: Upgreyd, a portmanteau of Upgrade and Grey.
- First Contact: The first-ever aliens to appear in the Gundam franchise.
- Fun with Acronyms: Extraterrestrial Living-metal Shapeshifters
- The Greys: They are Grey / Silver / Mercury / Platinum colored.
- Hive Mind: Or at least, that's what is suggested. The structure of their mind is completely alien to that of a human's.
- Poor Communication Kills: Played horrifyingly straight.
- Power Copying: They begin doing this in the final battle, copying warship and mobile suit designs. This also makes them a lot more effective in combat.
- Silicon-Based Life: Suggested to be such, as they are made of metal.
- Starfish Aliens: They are made of metal. They can shapeshift in seconds. They are psychic. They can assimilate things. They live in gas giants... actually, is there anything familiar about them to Earth lifeforms?
- UR Example: They are the first aliens to actually appear in the Gundam franchise, though there's a Space Whale fossil that appeared in SEED.
- Voluntary Shape Shifting: There are several forms they seem to gravitate to by default, but it's pretty clear that they can take any form they desire, with no limitation other than size.
- Zerg Rush: They tend to do this in combat, sending out massive swarms of smaller ELS to absorb and assimilate other things. They're easy to shoot down, but there's just so many of them that they get through regardless. They show very little consideration for the lives of said smaller ELS, which would make sense if they are, in fact, a Hive Mind.
