The Sanc Kingdom is what used to be Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.The Sanc Kingdom is identified as being in Northern Europe, and seems to be located around the Baltic Sea. The architecture has a rather Germanic feel to it - hence, it most likely was once a part of Germany that broke away.
Treize made all his decisions based on what would be the most romantic in a historical retelling of his life.Think about it, first he wants to be the hero who destroys the tyrant from within then defeats his worthy opponent. Then Romefellar starts using automated weapons, but that's not very heroic (try to imangine a story where the hero bravly sends a robot to do all his work while he stays home.) so he turns against Oz. Then after he disappears and comes back he gives up being the hero and chooses to be the villain to be vanquished by a worthy foe who will then rule with justice and compassion thinking that his evil will show people the foolish destruction of war. Ironically the casualty number he gives when he shows he has committed to memory everyone who has died was well below eitherof the world wars, and probably a few other wars too, so it was Relena’s social changes that ended war forever not anything he did.
Heero is decended from (or otherwise related to) Sousuke SagaraPoint One: If you stuck a picture of Heero next to a picture of Sousuke, you'd be forgiven for thinking they were brothers ,allowing for art style differences of course. Point Two: Heero= Rather messed-up mission obsessed soldier boy and mecha pilot with dubious social skills and the emotional range of a brick. Sousuke = Rather messed-up mission obsessed soldier boy and mecha pilot with dubious social skills and the emotional range of a brick.
The original Trowa Barton was going to be assassinated anyway.His goals regarding the conquering of Earth really don't jive with those of the Scientists (we didn't even HEAR about Mariemaia until the OVA), he gets replaced by the first mechanic on hand (our Trowa), and the Heavyarms is generally regarded as the weakest of the Gundams because of its dependence on More Dakka. Trowa and Heero can still pilot it effectively because they've been trained to fight at a disadvantage since they were children. It's unlikely that a Barton - with their money, influence and connections - would have been as well-versed in avoiding death as two people who grew up in war zones, and is therefore likely that he would have been taken out at the earliest opportunity.
Dorothy Catalonia is a Relena-fangirl-Sue whose author abandoned the fic at some point and left the character strandedDorothy starts out as the 'girl-who-likes-war-and-Relena-and-looks-like-she's-just-waiting-for-the-right-moment-to-reveal-that-she's-secretly-Treize's-illegitimate-sister' with enough meta-awareness to give her an odd sense of humour regarding Princess Pink, Heero and war in general, but later becomes someone with genuine ties to those around her (see her reaction to her grandfather's death and compare with how she dismisses him for Relena earlier in the story). Later she's given control of the mobile doll system because, as a synthesis of Realworld and Gundamworld and the incarnation of an author, she is somewhat Genre Savvy and will be able to avoid the mistakes made frequently by normal commanders in the series. Because Quatre is the A.C. universe's Newtype Expy, he's the one who notices that something's up with her and figures out that the whole Lady of War thing is a facade and she actually just wants out of this series.
Midii Une was intended to be the first Gundam pilotThink about it: Heero's name is the only one that doesn't really mean a number, but, instead, Une is the one that appears with the number one as her surname. Given that she interacted at least with Trowa before becoming Lt. Une, she probably was the first pilot in training, but somehow or another, she overheard something, or just felt in love with Kushrenada, and decided to do a Heel-Face Turn. Her split personality might have become not from one of Treize's declarations, but from her struggle to control Zero System. A hint of this is how she pilots the Non-Zero Wing, and saves Treize from being killed, after recovering from her coma and recovering her sorts, and surviving after that. A normal, untrained person would just die, like happened with Nataku (Wufei's fiancee from the Chapter Zero). Not only she survived, but she was also completely healthy when she left Wing, just like the Gundam pilots themselves.
Lady Une's first name is... Lady.Rather anti-climatic, but if King Bradley can have King as his first name, why not?
Relena Never brought into Total Pacifism.Going by what the girl herself says she still doesn't understand the whole concept and is just trying to live up to everyone elses standards. She attempted to murder Une over her step-fathers death despite knowing what being a Peacecraft meant. Even after Noin starts lecturing her about it she prefers to confront an issue rather than wait for it to blow her over. She also (after extensive Noin lecturing) STILL calls for Heero to beat the crap out of Zechs, and her reason for relenting was more "Oh he's my brother". fast forward to Sanc Kingdom and Fencing is apart of the curriculum despite 'Pacifist' views (though you could see it for more of the sport) more importantly despite Noin and the Butler worrying about her freaking out over them keeping mobile suits she is completely fine when she finds out about it. She never believed in Total Pacifism it's that everyone AROUND her believed that because she was a Peacecraft that she automatically would believe in it. In Endless Waltz she even laments that she's been a fool because- brace yourself- peace CAN'T be achieved if you just bend your back for anyone who attacks you (Remember that the ending only says that Mobile Suits and Gundams were never seen again, not that war never returned). Everything Relena did was to support Heero or to undermine the current enemy (Romefeller, White Fang).
Noin had an affair with Quatre at some point in the Sanc KingdomOkay, I admit this is a personal one. It has to do with one of the later episodes, when she breaks off from the group to find Zechs again. She nearly breaks down and apologizes to Quatre, who immediately understands and lets her go. It surprised me with how personal it felt.
Gundam scientist Dr J is also basketball legend Dr JDr J is really Julius Erving
Trowa is Cathy Po's father.It's unlikely she'd have the same name as his older sister unless she was deliberately named after her and none of the other characters really knew Catherine Bloom.
Zecks is Really Just Trying to Impress NoinNoin blatantly loves Zecks. Zecks loves her too, but because of his emotional problems (seriously, no 19yr old thinks/acts that way without some serious trauma) cant see that she loves him, or just tell her he loves her. So, he tries to get her to love him by trying to impress her. All his actions throughout the series are to do with this. He becomes an awesome mech pilot and gets several bitching mobile suits because Noin is a mech combat instructor and likes mobile suits. He tries to end all war because Noin (at least at series start) abhorred violence. Whether or not he realises this is debateable; near the end of the series he tries to kill her but can't- he thinks its because she's 'spineless' but its obvious its because he loves her.
Katsuyuki Sumisawa once had a girlfriend or crush named Catherine. He was dumped/turned down by her and never got over it, and that's why there are a million Catherines in Gundam Wing.Seriously: Katrina Peacecraft, Katherine Winner, Catherine Bloom, now Kathy Po, and (another) Catherine Winner....? This guy's got to have some kind of obsession over this name!
! ! !It's a Gundam!! ! !What, a Gundam?
The Mad Scientists who designed the Gundams planted a virus throughout all manufactured mobile suits to disable their performance.
Zechs is a deadbeat dad and Hilde is his and Noin's daughter.Why else would he change his name and try to spend as much time as possible a couple continents away from Noin? This also explains her stalker tendencies. I didn't really see it until I played Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden and saw Noin and Hilde next to each other. That hair is definitely hereditary.
Trowa Barton (i.e. Triton Bloom) might be an illegitimate child of the Winner family. Considering the rampant Generation Xerox involved in the series, and how the Winner family patriarch Zayeed just eerily looks like an elder Trowa (with facial hair and subdued bangs, much like Trowa Phobos in Frozen Teardrop), what gives that he was actually the product of an illegitimate affair Zayeed had with Catherine's mother? Of course, that just makes the Ho Yay between Trowa and Quatre kind of Squick.
Marimaia had clones.Which was what Dekim meant by finding a replacement for her.
The mobile suits of this series derive from the technology of DendohThey still didn't figure the Data Weapons (even if the Buster Rifle is a close approximation to their firepower) or the cockpit (the Zero System is a failed attempt), but the Gundanium is the same alloy, and the mobile suit have similar power while being more compact and having more endurance. And the Gundam pilots, Zechs, Treize and Relena are descendants of Altair, Ginga and Hokuto... As in every one of them descends by all the pilots of Dendoh and Ogre.
