Like I said, I don't disagree that he's a bastard. But in the dub at least when they abandon the mine, M'Quve actually comments to Kycilia that this will mean all the men inside will die, and it's Kycilia who tells him they have to do it anyway. The funeral thing is because he thinks it's a waste of time when there's still a war on; as for the nuke, yeah, that was bad, although even then it isn't hard to see it as an attempt to impress Kycilia (who I'm honestly starting to think is a lot worse than him).
The man's certainly empathy deficient, I'm not arguing that. But I don't see him as significantly more evil than Char "I killed my best friend because I hate his daddy" Aznable. M'Quve's a greedy, obsequious sycophant, but I wish people would stop trying to hold him up to the same level of evil as Gihren Zabi. I had to cut a whole lot of comments about him being a Complete Monster
because they just don't fit.
PS-On a totally unrelated note, in "The Big Zam's Last Stand," where in the Hell does Mirai's sudden crush on Sleggar come from? As a YouTube
commentator put it "Oh my gosh, Sleggar. He slapped me that one time, it must be true love!"
