* PsychoForHire: He doesn't ever mention anything about Italy or its prospects in the Gundam Fight; he seems to be in it purely for beating people up.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Being the Gundam Fighter of Neo Italy essentially makes Michelo immune to any prosecution by his own nation's police. Naturally, he abuses this immunity with glee, and just as naturally the cops cuff him ''the second'' he loses to Shining (and is thus disqualified from the tournament, at least until Wong intervenes on his behalf later).

Whether Dr. Mikamura actually built this earlier Gundam, or whether the resemblance is just a big coincidence, is never revealed.

The Gundam Fighter of Neo-China, and one of the youngest at age sixteen, despite looking like he's twelve or thirteen. Sai Saici is energetic, brash, and constantly strains the patience of his guardians and Domon. Despite his brattiness, he is also one of the most skilled and dangerous Fighters that Domon meets and forces him to accept a draw in their very first match.

Sai Saici's reason for fighting is to restore the Shaolin Temple, which fell into obscurity after the rise of the Chikulin Temple. His Dragon Gundam showcases his fighting style well and comes equipped with a bag of tricks to entrap and confuse his opponents.

His Shuffle Crest is the Ace of Clubs.

* CombatPragmatist: Unlike George, Mirabeau has no honor, and will do whatever it takes to win a fight.
* FacialMarkings: He has these under his eyes.
* HumanShield: In his fight with George he exploited the latter's chivalry by positioning himself in front of the audience to prevent George from attacking. The King saw through this, though, and disqualified Mirabeau on the spot.
* LongerThanLifeSentence: Sentenced to 1,000 years of hard labor for his crimes.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: His Mirage Gundam is a literal example, as it launched missiles into a crowd, causing the infamous Tragedy of Versailles.

* NonindicativeName: His Gundam doesn't actually create illusions.
* ReusedCharacterDesign: Visually, he's just Michelo with blue hair and facial tattoos.
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: He's a holdover from the Chapman days when firepower was the most important factor in a Gundam Fight. In the current era, he's remarkably out of place, having barely any combat skill at all and just getting by because his Gundam has so much firepower.
* TriggerHappy: He's not really much of a Fighter, and just prefers to use his Gundam's firepower to blow things away.
* VillainOfTheWeek: He only appears in a single episode and is never seen again for the rest of the series.
* WeakButSkilled: Well, if you consider "pulling out every dirty trick in the book" to be a measure of skill.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: It's never revealed what happened to him after his defeat and being cured of DG cells. Presumably he was sent back to the colonies to serve out the rest of his sentence.

* RealityEnsues: Chapman's long winning streak very nearly brought the universe to the brink of war. It's very possible that Master Asia defeated him in the 12th Gundam Fight specifically in his function as a member of the Shuffle Alliance, since if Chapman had won a fourth time war would have been unavoidable.



* YouAreTheNewTrend: Chapman's three-Fight winning streak brought sweeping changes to the Gundam Fight, as nations rushed to emulate Neo-England's strategy and Fights became less about martial arts skill and more about whose Gundam had the best guns. This era was brought to a end with Master Asia's victory in the 12th Gundam Fight, and by the 13th Fight martial arts Gundams are once again the trend du jour.

->'''Mobile Fighters:''' [=GF13=]-001NH Kowloon Gundam, [=GF13=]-001NHII Master Gundam

Master Asia is the man who taught Domon to fight, the champion of the 12th Gundam Fight for Neo-Hong Kong, and the former King of Hearts. He is an incredible martial artist, able to destroy mobile suits with the sash around his waist and move buildings with sheer force of spirit. He teaches the philosophy that martial artists communicate their souls by using their fists.

He reunites with Domon in Shinjuku, but soon reveals that he's in league with Kyoji and the Devil Gundam. For the rest of the series, he and Domon fight bitterly, but Master Asia still has some measure of regard for his "idiot pupil."

[[spoiler:She doesn't declare it ''to'' Domon, but begging him AllThereInTheManual: Imagawa's notes on the G Gundam [=DVDs=] go into very interesting detail on Wong and Neo Hong Kong, explaining that despite being the ruling nation of the universe NHK is in fact one of the only neo nations not to leave her alone have its own colony in space, which is implied to have been part of why Wong and saying Master Asia joined forces in the first place.

despite knowing full well that Kyral is doing this and that Domon is his next target. It gets worse after his involvement with the Nobel Devil Gundam not being equipped to do so, just from watching Domon use it.
* TheBerserker: In Berserk Mode, of course. She hates fighting this way
is revealed, and gets irritated whenever her crew leader laments he is seen overseeing murders, tortures, kidnapping, and unsafe Mobile Fighter combat in general, he is still as cheerful as he was in the beginning.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Ish. He's horrified by TheReveal
that it's not fixed yet, preferring Master Asia is planning to battle on her own use the Devil Gundam to wipe out humanity, but that's at least as much due to his desire to have an empire and people to rule as it is any thought to the countless deaths themselves.

* CuteBruiser: She's EvilOldFolks: Averted -- Wong is a cheerful, good-natured GenkiGirl, villain but he's not old. Imagawa's notes state that he deliberately made Wong young to avoid an old man allied with another old man, as everyone expected the Neo Hong Kong leader to be an old guy and/or obvious evil governor type.

* FauxAffablyEvil: He puts up a front of being friendly

The DG cells grab him and install him in the Walter Gundam after that, and reach Rain, and urges him to do it so that she, Allenby, will be able to move on from loving him.he is KilledOffForReal by Domon.]]
* LoveHurts: [[spoiler:Subverted for once in LackOfEmpathy: Even before its revealed that he intends to control the Devil Gundam, he showed signs of this when Kyral was assassinating Gundam Fighters, and seemed gleeful at the prospect of Domon being Kyral's next victim. He was disturbingly complicit with murder, brainwashing, and torture, all with a ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' series. Rain is smile.
* ManipulativeBastard: He does this to varying degrees of success, but most of the people he's manipulating have a tendency to say ShutUpHannibal.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Based on Creator/ChowYunFat.
** Hell, Imagawa wanted to just outright make him Chow Yun-Fat because he was such a huge fan of the guy, but was told there was no way they wouldn't have a lawsuit on their hands if he did.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Domon may have been beel
able to defeat her without killing her and surgically removes most of the DG cell infection, returning Allenby to normal. Good thing combatants Wong threw at him, but the Rising latter still has legitimate control over the Devil Gundam and his minions, and was perfectly equipped able to organize some very difficult situations for precision strikes, Domon, and Rain is skilled at archery.even Master Asia. [[spoiler: He even managed to ambush Domon as he was trying to save Rain, destroying his carrier with control over the Walter Gundam. Were it not for Fuunsaiki's Gundam, the Devil Gundam would've won.]]
* MagicalGirlWarrior: Her NotSoStoic: At first he was rather graceful and unfazed in Domon living up to his promise to be undefeated. Only when he suspects that Domon saw things he shouldn't have, such as the Devil Gundam looks very ''Franchise/SailorMoon''-ish, which, combined in the government building (actually Schwarz), that he truly gets angry, and grows openly agitated with her more physical fighting style invokes this trope.
* OneOfTheKids: After she becomes a regular, she's usually goofing around
Domon's victories, even destroying his treats in frustration on occasion. He even screams in frustration for ''someone'' to defeat Domon when he tied with Hoy Saici, which amuses Master Asia.
* PsychopathicManchild: For some, since he's seen in his pajamas
and Ming when not interacting directly with Domon.
* OrphansOrdeal: Was raised by the military because of her parents's death when she was
leaning on a child.
* SailorFuku: Nobel
giant teddybear at one point. When his Devil Gundam is essentially designed seemingly finally destroyed, he is nearly on the verge of tears. He can also be seen as a subversion: yes, he keeps said teddy and [[ThisCannotBe some of his reactions]] [[VillainousBreakdown to being in a disadvantage]] can be seen as childish, but Wong's own cunning plans make him far smarter and more ruthless than the average.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: He ''lives'' for this.
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: And ''how''. For example, a couple of the
Gundam version of ''Franchise/SailorMoon''. More specifically, it's based on [[CodeNameSailorV Sailor V]], with an alternate version being based on Sailor Venus. Suplemtery Materials says variants Fighters that Domon eliminated in the prelims are reinstated for each of the Senshi exist as well as Super Sailor Moon and Super Sailor Chibimoon
finals. Why? Because Wong said so. This makes taking action against very difficult since if he learns any of his opposition knows of his plans he can simply have them banned from the Gundam Fight.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: She SleazyPolitician: He doesn't even give try to hide the rules enough consideration for such a statement. Whenever someone tries to point out fact that she's helping he's manipulating Domon and the Gundam Fight for his own ends.
* SlouchOfVillainy: Faciliated by
a rival or sharing proprietary military tech, big plush hoverchair.
* SmugSnake: He's plotting to make his rule of the Federation permanent using the Devil Gundam. [[spoiler:Master Asia and Domon both subvert his plans, and he's done in by a scheme of his ''own'' that went bad.]] High functioning example though, as unlike any other human antagonist, he actually did have control over the Devil Gundam, having it attack Domon and Master Asia during the arc.
* TheSociopath: Underneath his dapper exterior, he is truly this. He has no qualms with murder going around behind the scenes during the Gundam Fights, even personally overseeing a murder himself. A disturbing scene has him torturing a kidnapped scientist with an almost playfully calm expression. His goal is to control the universe, and is willing to have competitors enslaved by the Devil Gundam to reach his goal, even brainwashing Allenby and forcing
her reaction will range anywhere from "whatever, old-timer" to go through the painful Berserker state to overpower Domon, an act that even repulses Master Asia.
* ShoutOut: According to Imagawa Wong's Sweet Tooth detailed below is a shout-out to Chow Yun-Fat's character in ''Film/GodOfGamblers''.
* SunglassesAtNight: He is never seen without them, and even wears his trademark glasses even with his pajamas.
* SweetTooth: Often has pocky or some other sweet munchable to hand.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: He's taller than Domon (if only just) and occasionally cracks a few biting one-liners at the latter's expense. Even when having a VillainousBreakdown he is still somewhat snarky, almost breaking the fourth wall when he demands that someone, ''anyone'', defeat Domon already.
* VillainTeamUp: With Master Asia, both

* SixthRanger: To the Shuffle Alliance. Starts as a dangerous rival (if unwillingly so) but she quickly befriends them and helps them however she can.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Rain's girly girl. Again, this is inverted for
their Gundams, goal of resurrecting the Devil Gundam.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Downplayed in the anime itself,
as he seems popular with the common people but Domon and co have his number pretty well checked. Imagawa's notes reveal that he is this to a far greater degree that the anime ever gets around to showing, however, due to having single-handedly rebuilt Neo Hong Kong.
* VillainousBreakdown: He has lost patience when Rain interferes with a brainwashed
Allenby's Nobel attack on Domon, and when Allenby is defeated, he despairs that his plan is crashing down, and settles to have the Devil Gundam destroy everything. When that failed, he reaches a brief BSOD until he quickly recovers from that. After coming back from the dead thanks to the DG cells, he is disheveled, and his sanity is gone at that point.
* XanatosSpeedChess: When things start getting difficult for him, such as suspecting Domon spying on him and winning the tournaments, he forces the most difficult challengers to face him; Domon's own allies. [[spoiler: When it seems that the Devil
Gundam is completely destroyed, he attempts to take advantage of Master Asia to defeat Domon so that he can still remain in power for the girly one out of next four years, while offering to recreate the two.

* McNinja: The poster boy for this trope ([[spoiler:and yet, not quite a true example -- unless the Kasshu's are secretly German]]). Or rather, Schwarz should have been called von Ninja.

* AllThereInTheManual: Imagawa's notes on the G Gundam [=DVDs=] go into very interesting detail on Wong and Neo Hong Kong, explaining that despite being the ruling nation of the universe NHK is in fact one of the only neo nations not to have its own colony in space, which is implied to have been part of why Wong and Master Asia joined forces in the first place. Imagawa's notes also explain that NHK was effectively destitute before Wong's rise to power, and that within NHK Wong is a VillainWithGoodPublicity to a ''massive'' degree as he is "in all ways the man who rebuilt the country of Neo Hong Kong".
* ArcVillain: Effectively the BigBad of most of the second half of G Gundam, the Prime Minister of the ruling nation of the Federation who is doing everything in his power to rule the universe, even managing to briefly control the Devil Gundam to do his bidding before he was killed off. Twice.

* DissonantSerenity: He seemed like a very benevolent and cheerful fellow at first, up until Neo-Nepal's Gundam Fighter Kyral starts killing off Gundam Fighters before his matched with them. Wong maintains his cheerful demeanor, despite knowing full well that Kyral is doing this and that Domon is his next target. It gets worse after his involvement with the Devil Gundam is revealed, and he is seen overseeing murders, tortures, kidnapping, and unsafe Mobile Fighter combat in general, he is still as cheerful as he was in the beginning.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Ish. He's horrified by TheReveal that Master Asia is planning to use the Devil Gundam to wipe out humanity, but that's at least as much due to his desire to have an empire and people to rule as it is any thought to the countless deaths themselves.
* EvilGenius: He dedicated considerable effort into researching the Devil Gundam, and even discovered how to awaken the Devil Gundam's power before the [[spoiler: actual masterminds behind the Devil Gundam.]] He is charismatic and politically powerful enough to have the support of Master Asia and Neo-England. He will manipulate and use people to accomplish his goals, and he even managed to have the Devil Gundam obey his orders, even turning against Master Asia. He is quick to make backup plans in case things go wrong, which made him a very dangerous enemy for Domon [[spoiler: and even Master Asia]], despite not being an actual Gundam Fighter himself. [[spoiler: Even Ulube admits that without Wong's research, he would've never been able to take control of the Devil Gundam.]]
* EvilIsNotAToy: His plans to control Allenby and the Devil Gundam do not go as planned. [[spoiler:Allenby's berserker form turns out to be uncontrollable and severely injures Wong. Wong survives, but becomes infected with DG cells and dies a slave to the Devil Gundam he tried to control.]]
* EvilOldFolks: Averted -- Wong is a villain but he's not old. Imagawa's notes state that he deliberately made Wong young to avoid an old man allied with another old man, as everyone expected the Neo Hong Kong leader to be an old guy and/or obvious evil governor type.
* EvilOverlord: Of the Federation. He got there legally; he wants to remain there illegally.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He puts up a front of being friendly and a fan of international cooperation, but nobody really buys it. Especially so when he is torturing and brainwashing people.
* HiddenDepths: According to Imagawa Wong was "the only person who could successfully help Neo Hong Kong thrive on the declined Earth", though whether this success is due to his economical tactics or his governmental direction is left open-ended.

* LackOfEmpathy: Even before its revealed that he intends to control the Devil Gundam, he showed signs of this when Kyral was assassinating Gundam Fighters, and seemed gleeful at the prospect of Domon being Kyral's next victim. He was disturbingly complicit with murder, brainwashing, and torture, all with a smile.
* ManipulativeBastard: He does this to varying degrees of success, but most of the people he's manipulating have a tendency to say ShutUpHannibal.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Based on Creator/ChowYunFat.
** Hell, Imagawa wanted to just outright make him Chow Yun-Fat because he was such a huge fan of the guy, but was told there was no way they wouldn't have a lawsuit on their hands if he did.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Domon may have been beel able to defeat most of the combatants Wong threw at him, but the latter still has legitimate control over the Devil Gundam and his minions, and was able to organize some very difficult situations for Domon, and even Master Asia. [[spoiler: He even managed to ambush Domon as he was trying to save Rain, destroying his carrier with control over the Walter Gundam. Were it not for Fuunsaiki's Gundam, the Devil Gundam would've won.]]
* NotSoStoic: At first he was rather graceful and unfazed in Domon living up to his promise to be undefeated. Only when he suspects that Domon saw things he shouldn't have, such as the Devil Gundam in the government building (actually Schwarz), that he truly gets angry, and grows openly agitated with Domon's victories, even destroying his treats in frustration on occasion. He even screams in frustration for ''someone'' to defeat Domon when he tied with Saici, which amuses Master Asia.
* PsychopathicManchild: For some, since he's seen in his pajamas and leaning on a giant teddybear at one point. When his Devil Gundam is seemingly finally destroyed, he is nearly on the verge of tears. He can also be seen as a subversion: yes, he keeps said teddy and [[ThisCannotBe some of his reactions]] [[VillainousBreakdown to being in a disadvantage]] can be seen as childish, but Wong's own cunning plans make him far smarter and more ruthless than the average.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: He ''lives'' for this.
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: And ''how''. For example, a couple of the Gundam Fighters that Domon eliminated in the prelims are reinstated for the finals. Why? Because Wong said so. This makes taking action against very difficult since if he learns any of his opposition knows of his plans he can simply have them banned from the Gundam Fight.
* SleazyPolitician: He doesn't even try to hide the fact that he's manipulating Domon and the Gundam Fight for his own ends.
* SlouchOfVillainy: Faciliated by a big plush hoverchair.
* SmugSnake: He's plotting to make his rule of the Federation permanent using the Devil Gundam. [[spoiler:Master Asia and Domon both subvert his plans, and he's done in by a scheme of his ''own'' that went bad.]] High functioning example though, as unlike any other human antagonist, he actually did have control over the Devil Gundam, having it attack Domon and Master Asia during the arc.
* TheSociopath: Underneath his dapper exterior, he is truly this. He has no qualms with murder going around behind the scenes during the Gundam Fights, even personally overseeing a murder himself. A disturbing scene has him torturing a kidnapped scientist with an almost playfully calm expression. His goal is to control the universe, and is willing to have competitors enslaved by the Devil Gundam to reach his goal, even brainwashing Allenby and forcing her to go through the painful Berserker state to overpower Domon, an act that even repulses Master Asia.
* ShoutOut: According to Imagawa Wong's Sweet Tooth detailed below is a shout-out to Chow Yun-Fat's character in ''Film/GodOfGamblers''.
* SunglassesAtNight: He is never seen without them, and even wears his trademark glasses even with his pajamas.
* SweetTooth: Often has pocky or some other sweet munchable to hand.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: He's taller than Domon (if only just) and occasionally cracks a few biting one-liners at the latter's expense. Even when having a VillainousBreakdown he is still somewhat snarky, almost breaking the fourth wall when he demands that someone, ''anyone'', defeat Domon already.
* VillainTeamUp: With Master Asia, both to complete their goal of resurrecting the Devil Gundam.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Downplayed in the anime itself, as he seems popular with the common people but Domon and co have his number pretty well checked. Imagawa's notes reveal that he is this to a far greater degree that the anime ever gets around to showing, however, due to having single-handedly rebuilt Neo Hong Kong.
* VillainousBreakdown: He has lost patience when Rain interferes with a brainwashed Allenby's attack on Domon, and when Allenby is defeated, he despairs that his plan is crashing down, and settles to have the Devil Gundam destroy everything. When that failed, he reaches a brief BSOD until he quickly recovers from that. After coming back from the dead thanks to the DG cells, he is disheveled, and his sanity is gone at that point.
* XanatosSpeedChess: When things start getting difficult for him, such as suspecting Domon spying on him and winning the tournaments, he forces the most difficult challengers to face him; Domon's own allies. [[spoiler: When it seems that the Devil Gundam is completely destroyed, he attempts to take advantage of Master Asia to defeat Domon so that he can still remain in power for the next four years, while offering to recreate the Devil Gundam to Master Asia's wishes.]]

* IgnoredEpiphany: Immediately after his defeat he seems to have seen the error of his ways, remarking that in the end it was him who made too many childish boasts. The next time we see him he's drinking in a bar and stewing over Domon's latest victory, having backslid completely.
* InformedAbility: Much is made of Marcelot's strength (supplementary material reveals he was even invited to join the Shuffle Alliance!) but from what we actually see Marcelot's victories are almost wholly attributable to his Gundam rather than his own ability. He's a ''very'' large man who abuses his size prodigiously, but he has none of the technique or endurance of even the other Shuffle Alliance members.
* LightningBruiser: Zeus Gundam is very swift while riding Hercules, but loses the speed advantage when the chariot is taken out. Even without Hercules, he's still able to keep up.
* MeaningfulName: Cronos comes from the father of Zeus in Greek mythology. [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Considering that he's best known for trying to eat his own children...
]]
* TheChessMaster: He uses a giant chessboard with miniature Gundams on it to set matches.
* ColdBloodedTorture: He has one of the scientists behind Allenby's gundam captured and electrocuted for information about Allenby's berserker mode.
* DissonantSerenity: He seemed
PowerGivesYouWings: More like a very benevolent and cheerful fellow at first, up until Neo-Nepal's Gundam Fighter Kyral starts killing off Gundam Fighters before his matched with them. Wong maintains his cheerful demeanor, despite knowing full well that Kyral is doing Power Comes With Wings in this and that Domon is case, as his next target. It gets worse after his involvement with the Devil powerful Zeus Gundam is revealed, and he is seen overseeing murders, tortures, kidnapping, and unsafe Mobile Fighter combat in general, he is still as cheerful as he was in the beginning.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Ish. He's horrified by TheReveal
equipped with golden wings that Master Asia is planning to use the Devil make it capable of atmospheric flight.
* ShockAndAwe: His finishing move, Lightning of Judgment, which emanates from his energy-generated Lightning Hammer.
* ShoutOut: The Zeus
Gundam to wipe out humanity, but that's at least as much due to his desire to have an empire and people to rule as it is any thought to the countless deaths themselves.
* EvilGenius: He dedicated considerable effort into researching the Devil Gundam, and even discovered how to awaken the Devil Gundam's power before the [[spoiler: actual masterminds behind the Devil Gundam.]] He is charismatic and politically powerful enough to have the support of Master Asia and Neo-England. He will manipulate and use people to accomplish his goals, and he even managed to have the Devil Gundam obey his orders, even turning against Master Asia. He is quick to make backup plans
looks like it's in case things go wrong, which made him a very dangerous enemy for Domon [[spoiler: and even Master Asia]], despite not being an actual Gundam Fighter himself. [[spoiler: Even Ulube admits that without Wong's research, he would've never been able to take control of the Devil Gundam.[[Anime/SaintSeiya Gold Cloth.]]
* EvilIsNotAToy: His plans to control Allenby and StarterVillain: Of a sort, as he is the Devil Gundam do not go as planned. [[spoiler:Allenby's berserker form turns out to be uncontrollable and severely injures Wong. Wong survives, but becomes infected with DG cells and dies a slave to the Devil Gundam he tried to control.]]
* EvilOldFolks: Averted -- Wong is a villain but he's not old. Imagawa's notes state
first foe that he deliberately made Wong young to avoid an old man allied with another old man, as everyone expected Domon fights in the Neo Hong Kong leader arc.
* VillainDecay: Prior
to be an old guy and/or obvious evil governor type.
* EvilOverlord: Of
fighting Domon, Marcelot is the Federation. He got there legally; favorite to win the tournament. ''After'' fighting (and losing to) Domon, he wants quickly degenerates into a bitter also-ran grousing in a cafe about that "dirty technique" Domon used to remain there illegally.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He puts up a front
beat him. [[spoiler:Michelo recruits him as part of a coalition of enemy Gundam Fights striking at the Shuffle Alliance, but he does nothing to distinguish himself from lesser-tiered Fighters like Romario and Sijiema, and even after being friendly and a fan of international cooperation, but nobody really buys it. Especially so when he is torturing and brainwashing people.
* HiddenDepths: According to Imagawa Wong was "the only person who could successfully help Neo Hong Kong thrive on the declined Earth", though whether this success is due to his economical tactics or his governmental direction is left open-ended.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler:He has Allenby
infected with DG cells, puts her into a Berserk state, and ships her off to Lantau Island... then the fight with Rain brings Walter Gundam right up to his office, whereupon Allenby blasts him through the window. The by DG cells grab him and install him in the Walter Gundam after that, and on Lantau Island he is KilledOffForReal by Domon.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: Even before its revealed that he intends to control the Devil Gundam, he showed signs of this when Kyral was assassinating Gundam Fighters, and seemed gleeful at the prospect of Domon being Kyral's next victim. He was disturbingly complicit with murder, brainwashing, and torture, all with a smile.
* ManipulativeBastard: He does this to varying degrees of success, but most of the people he's manipulating have a tendency to say ShutUpHannibal.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Based on Creator/ChowYunFat.
** Hell, Imagawa wanted to just outright make him Chow Yun-Fat because he was such a huge fan of the guy, but was told there was no way they wouldn't have a lawsuit on their hands if he did.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Domon may have been beel able to defeat most of the combatants Wong threw at him, but the latter still has legitimate control over the Devil Gundam and his minions, and was able to organize some very difficult situations for Domon, and even Master Asia. [[spoiler: He even managed to ambush Domon as he was trying to save Rain, destroying his carrier with control over the Walter Gundam. Were it not for Fuunsaiki's Gundam, the Devil Gundam would've won.]]
* NotSoStoic: At first he was rather graceful and unfazed in Domon living up to his promise to be undefeated. Only when he suspects that Domon saw things he shouldn't have, such as the Devil Gundam in the government building (actually Schwarz), that he truly gets angry, and grows openly agitated with Domon's victories, even destroying his treats in frustration on occasion. He even screams in frustration for ''someone'' to defeat Domon when he tied with Saici, which amuses Master Asia.
* PsychopathicManchild: For some, since he's seen in his pajamas and leaning on a giant teddybear at one point. When his Devil Gundam is seemingly finally destroyed, he is nearly on the verge of tears. He can also be seen as a subversion: yes, he keeps said teddy and [[ThisCannotBe some of his reactions]] [[VillainousBreakdown to being in a disadvantage]] can be seen as childish, but Wong's own cunning plans make him far smarter and more ruthless than the average.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: He ''lives'' for this.
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: And ''how''. For example, a couple of the Gundam Fighters that Domon eliminated in the prelims are reinstated for the finals. Why? Because Wong said so. This makes taking action against very difficult since if he learns any of his opposition knows of his plans he can simply have them banned from the Gundam Fight.
* SleazyPolitician: He
doesn't even try get powered up to hide the fact that he's manipulating Domon and the Gundam Fight for his own ends.
* SlouchOfVillainy: Faciliated by a big plush hoverchair.
* SmugSnake: He's plotting to make his rule of the Federation permanent using the Devil Gundam. [[spoiler:Master Asia and Domon both subvert his plans, and he's done in by a scheme of his ''own'' that went bad.]] High functioning example though, as unlike any other human antagonist, he actually did have control over the Devil Gundam, having it attack Domon and Master Asia during the arc.
* TheSociopath: Underneath his dapper exterior, he is truly this. He has no qualms with murder going around behind the scenes during the Gundam Fights, even personally overseeing a murder himself. A disturbing scene has him torturing a kidnapped scientist with an almost playfully calm expression. His goal is to control the universe, and is willing to have competitors enslaved by the Devil Gundam to reach his goal, even brainwashing Allenby and forcing her to go through the painful Berserker state to overpower Domon, an act that even repulses Master Asia.
* ShoutOut: According to Imagawa Wong's Sweet Tooth detailed below is a shout-out to Chow Yun-Fat's character in ''Film/GodOfGamblers''.
* SunglassesAtNight: He is never seen without them, and even wears his trademark glasses even with his pajamas.
* SweetTooth: Often has pocky or some other sweet munchable to hand.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: He's taller than Domon (if only just) and occasionally cracks a few biting one-liners at the latter's expense. Even when having a VillainousBreakdown he is still somewhat snarky, almost breaking the fourth wall when he demands that someone, ''anyone'', defeat Domon already.
* VillainTeamUp: With Master Asia, both to complete their goal of resurrecting the Devil Gundam.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Downplayed in the anime itself, as he seems popular with the common people but Domon and co have his number pretty well checked. Imagawa's notes reveal that he is this to a far greater
same degree that the anime ever gets around to showing, however, due to having single-handedly rebuilt Neo Hong Kong.
* VillainousBreakdown: He has lost patience when Rain interferes with a brainwashed Allenby's attack on Domon, and when Allenby is defeated, he despairs that his plan is crashing down, and settles to have the Devil Gundam destroy everything. When that failed, he reaches a brief BSOD until he quickly recovers from that. After coming back from the dead thanks to the DG cells, he is disheveled, and his sanity is gone at that point.
* XanatosSpeedChess: When things start getting difficult for him, such
as suspecting Michelo or Chapman. Domon spying on treats him essentially as an annoyance, defeating him with ridiculous ease before he resurrects and winning the tournaments, he forces the most difficult challengers to face him; Domon's own allies. [[spoiler: When it seems that the Devil Gundam is completely destroyed, he attempts to take advantage of Master Asia to defeat gives Domon so that he can still remain in power a (slightly) tougher time. That time ends with Domon putting him down for the next four years, while offering to recreate the Devil Gundam to Master Asia's wishes.]]
* YellowPeril: A political leader from China's mainland (although Hong Kong is a distinct city-state here) who is trying to secure power for himself using underhanded and mafia-like tactics. Japanese works aren't immune to this trope either.

->Voiced by: Creator/HochuOtsuka (Japanese), Roger Rhodes (English)

->'''Mobile Fighter:''' [=GF13=]-006NA Gundam Maxter

Neo-America's Gundam Fighter. Chibodee was a street kid in New York City who caught the attention of some boxing scouts after beating up a group of very large men when he was about ten.

The Gundam Fighter of Neo-China, and one of the youngest at age sixteen, despite looking like he's twelve or thirteen. Sai Saici is energetic, brash, and constantly strains the patience of his guardians and Domon. Despite his brattiness, he is also one of the most skilled and dangerous Fighters that Domon meets and forces him to accept a draw in their very first match.

Sai Saici's reason for fighting is to restore the Shaolin Temple, which fell into obscurity after the rise of the Chikulin Temple. His Dragon Gundam showcases his fighting style well and comes equipped with a bag of tricks to entrap and confuse his opponents.

His Shuffle Crest is the Ace of Clubs.

The

Initially, he comes off as a ruthless politician who will do anything to replace Domon with a more cooperative pilot. Later, however, he seems more exasperated and one of the youngest at age sixteen, despite looking like hapless to control Domon--and while still a politician, he's twelve or thirteen.

[[spoiler:You don't get more Determinator than continuing to fight ''after your Gundam's arms have been ripped off,'']] especially when you take into account how the Mobile Trace System works.

* HormoneAddledTeenager: [[EatingTheEyeCandy Enjoys every moment]] of seeing Nastasha skinnydipping and upskirts Rain.
* IdiotHero: When he isn't fighting or doing fight-related things, he's a pretty goofy, immature kid. Sometimes overestimates his own abilities, too. However, as shown by BrilliantButLazy, GuileHero, and TeenGenius, he subverts the trope ''hard'' when he ''is'' doing fight-related things.
* LetsGetDangerous: He acts like a hyperactive little kid most of the time, but when he's in a gundam fight he's a force to be reckoned with.

* TheSmartGuy: Mostly because [[IndyPloy he thinks]] ''[[IndyPloy fast]]'' in the battlefield.
* TeamChef: He's an amazing cook. He cooks Chinese food, of course.
* TeenGenius: Not only is he the youngest member of the new Shuffle Alliance, episode 25 reveals that he's also the youngest Gundam pilot ''of all time''. His feats then include managing to force a draw with Domon in their first match, attaining Hyper Mode, continuing to fight after losing both of his Gundam arms in his final match with Domon, taking a hit from the Burning Finger head on and overcoming it, and he manages to master the most advanced of all Shaolin techniques. During their final battle he even manages to overcome the Burning Finger and destroys the gundam's right arm, causing more damage than to Domon than any other member of the Shuffle Alliance.
* {{Troll}}: Some of his pranks and perverted antics seem more about getting reactions than anything else.
* WarriorMonk: He's a Shaolin Monk. It's how he learned his martial arts moves.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: HATES mummies and anything related to the supernatural. Naturally, Neo Egypt's previous Gundam Fighter has a grudge against his father and, by proxy, him. He's also terrified of rats.

Neo-Russia's Gundam Fighter. Argo was once a space pirate, although he had a reputation for being merciful towards those he robbed. He even went out of his way to try and rescue a woman from a damaged space station, although his failure caused her husband Andrew Graham to swear revenge. After his capture, he was coerced into fighting with the promise of winning freedom for himself [[TrueCompanions and his pirate crew]]. Argo doesn't talk much and smiles less, but he is a loyal and supportive friend.

His Bolt Gundam is as large and powerful as he is himself, equipped with an iconic ball-and-chain weapon. Most of Argo's strategy, however, lies in wrestling his opponent into submission with brute force, which is something he's very good at.

Ulube may have successfully resurrected the Devil Gundam to its full power against all odds, but its revealed that the DG Cells have already taken over him by the time he tried to re-capture the rogue Devil Gundam. He never had control, and is nothing more than the means they use Devil Gundam's puppet and mouthpiece all along.]]
* BigBadEnsemble: [[spoiler: With the Devil Gundam.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: [[spoiler: He appears

* ScaryShinyGlasses: On occasion.
CharClone: One of the two in the series, with the other being Schwarz Bruder. [[spoiler: And between his his deeply manipulative nature, nose for opportunism, and apocalyptic ambitions, he's a clear clone of the BigBad version of Char from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack''.]]
* SensualSlavs: She's ClimaxBoss: [[spoiler: The one responsible for the Kashu family's unfortunate fate, as well as Rain being forced into "piloting" the Devil Gundam. Still, the Devil Gundam "piloted" by Rain is the TrueFinalBoss.]]
* ColonelBadass: He's
a hot Russian chick.
former Gundam fighter who would have been champion if he didn't have the misfortune of facing the Undefeated of the East in the finals.
* SexySpectacles: She wears glasses DrunkWithPower: [[spoiler: The instant he gets ahold of the Devil Gundam he discards his ReasonableAuthorityFigure facade in favor of this, and when he gets in the Grand Master Gundam he cranks it UpToEleven.]]
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: [[spoiler: Played with: He doesn't so
much like Bunny. But while Bunny is presented more go crazy when he gets ahold of the Devil Gundam as it allows his true craziness to come out. Read below for the specifics.]]
* EvilIsHammy: [[spoiler: He's calm and reserved until he reveals himself
as a cutesy bad guy. [[WorldOfHam Then he chews the scenery up with all the other characters.]]
* EvilIsNotAToy: [[spoiler: He tried to capture the Devil Gundam to ensure Neo-Japan's domination over the entire world. It enslaves him instead.]]
* EvilIsPetty: [[spoiler: He gleefully taunts Domon about Master Asia's recent death and makes it clear that if the Undefeated of the East had a grave that he'd be dancing on it.]]
* EvilSorcerer: [[spoiler: Not actually one, but labels himself as such in his final battle with the Shuffle Alliance.]]
* FallenHero: [[spoiler: He was Neo-Japan's Gundam Fighter in the 12th Fight. Would've possibly remained a good guy if not for his humiliating defeat to Master Asia; after that, it's implied that he never was the same again.]]
* FauxAffablyEvil: [[spoiler: He puts on a good front of being a ReasonableAuthorityFigure for the overwhelming majority of the series (45 of the 50 episodes) but as is ultimately revealed it's all just a mask and he's in fact quite a nasty and sadistic
character, Nastasha taunting Domon gleefully and taking dark joy in the recent death of his old enemy Master Asia.]]
* GambitRoulette: His success was based in great part on [[spoiler: Wong transporting the Devil Gundam to the final battle site and Domon's victory.]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Received his from the Devil Gundam.
* InformedAttribute: Rising Gundam
is TheBaroness.
* TheStrategist: This
stated at multiple points as having been built for Ulube's own personal use, yet when we finally see Rising in action it seems to fit Rain ''far'' better than it ever would have Ulube. Even when it is her job as Argo's handler. Whenever there's eventually revealed that Ulube was in fact a multinational team-up, she automatically takes former Gundam Fighter, his Mobile Fighter from the 12th fight has nothing in common with Rising, and seems to fight more like a precursor to the Shining Gundam than the naginata, bow-and-arrow and shield using Rising Gundam.
* MaskPower: Which covers said scars from view. [[spoiler:It also conceals his DG cell infection.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler: It turns out he's been playing everyone from the beginning--he was the one who planted the idea of betrayal in Dr. Mikamura's head, he's the one who prosecuted Dr. Kasshu in court, and he's the one who put Domon into the Gundam Fight.]]
* MonstrosityEqualsWeakness: [[spoiler:Up until the DG cells take him over completely, Ulube utterly dominates the Shuffle Alliance. After he becomes a cackling, grey-skinned DG cell monstrosity the heroes break free of his Gundam and destroy him in a single blow.]]
* MouthOfSauron: [[spoiler: Turned into this by the Devil Gundam.]]
* OpportunisticBastard: [[spoiler: Much like CCA-era Char before him, Ulube rises to power not by any grand scheming but simply by waiting for all his rivals (Dark Kyoji, Master Asia, Wong) to kill each other off. He rides Wong's coattails in particular, usurping all his research after his death to figure out how the Devil Gundam works, and his "plan" is basically you'd get if Palpatine from ''Franchise/StarWars'' abandoned all notions of political subterfuge and just indulged his LargeHam DrunkOnTheDarkSide persona 24/7. Not surprisingly, the entire rest of the universe unites against him.]]
* PecFlex: Flexing his abs is enough to deflect a Bursting Machine-Gun Punch.
* SmugSnake: [[spoiler: His plan essentially hinged on Domon being able to defeat Master Asia, the one man who effectively ended Ulube's own Gundam Fighter career by defeating him, and fully expects to defeat Domon after he won against Master Asia. His own gloats were quickly shut down by Domon when he confronts him, and that was after dismissing and underestimating his own accomplice. Ulube only managed to resurrect the Devil Gundam through Wong Yun-Fat's own research of Ulube's own secret project. Most glaringly, Ulube's own plans for the Devil Gundam went bad once it escaped to earth since it destroyed his squad and shot DG cells into him, making him a slave to the Devil Gundam's will. If he was under the delusion that he had control
over the planning.
Devil Gundam and the universe after that, he is most definitely this.
* StatuesqueStunner: The tallest woman SoreLoser: [[spoiler: Most of the antagonists are this but Ulube takes it to the next level. Literally ''the entire plot'' happens because he can't get over being beaten by Master Asia in the series.
12th Gundam Fight.]]
* SupportingLeader: She's seen as the de-facto leader StepfordSmiler: He puts up a good front for most of the main characters series as a put-upon ReasonableAuthorityFigure trying to reign in his incompetent boss Karato.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: He's tall and dark-skinned, though the snarky side doesn't come out for 45 episodes. Once it comes out, though, it comes out ''[[LargeHam in force]]''.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:Ulube ''thinks'' he's calling the shots,
but he's nothing more than the Devil Gundam's tool from their first meeting onward]].
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: [[spoiler: Zigzagged and deconstructed, as Ulube certainly goes drunk on the dark side after being infected by DG cells, but through his MotiveRant to
Domon it's revealed that Ulube's insanity originates not from the Devil Gundam but is entirely of his own making: after losing to Master Asia, he decided that "[[MightMakesRight It is power that rules this universe]]" and became obsessed with seizing "that ultimate truth" and making it his TrueCompanions are own. The Ultimate Gundam and Dr. Mikamura's jealousy were simply the ones driving tools he thought he needed to seize that power, and the plot.Devil Gundam doesn't so much make him crazy as allow him the freedom to show the world how crazy he really was all along.]]
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler: He pulls this on '''all''' his allies, first Mikamura when he realizes he needs Rain more than him, then on all his fellow military officers. As a reasonable person might guess, opting to fight the entire rest of the universe single-handedly doesn't really work out for him.]]

At one time, he was friends first, George is singularly unimpressed with Dr. Kasshu.
Domon's total lack of manners and refuses to fight someone so uncouth. When Domon (and Marie-Louise) force him into a match, however, George proves that he is as HotBlooded as Domon.

George's fighting style reflects his craftiness and intellect; his Gundam Rose makes use of rose-shaped bit weapons that can be used as traditional funnels or to create a binding net. But it was his sense of chivalry that won him the right to fight for Neo-France.

very first match.

Sai Saici's beleaguered guardians, training him reason for fighting is to resurrect restore the Shaolin Temple, which fell into obscurity after the rise of the Chikulin Temple. They often speak in unison.His Dragon Gundam showcases his fighting style well and comes equipped with a bag of tricks to entrap and confuse his opponents.

His Shuffle Crest is the Ace of Clubs.



* AccidentalPervert: When he comes across a skinnydipping Nastasha. Quite deliberate with Rain, though.
* AlliterativeName: '''Sai''' '''Sai'''ci
* BadassAndChildDuo: Being the youngest of TheTeam, he fills the child part by default (usually with either Domon or Argo). He is a badass in his own right, mind you.
* BareFistedMonk: Literally. He prefers to use hand-to-hand combat more outside of his Gundam, though.
* BladeOnAStick: His favorite weapon inside his Gundam are spears.
* BrilliantButLazy: He hates training, but he is still acknowledged as a fighting prodigy.
* DatingCatwoman: His one-time girlfriend Cécile is the sister of one of his rivals. [[WorthyOpponent It's less of a problem than it sounds.]]
* CuteBruiser: Small, youthful, strong, fast... and can ''kick your ass''.
* {{Determinator}}: Well, ''everyone'' is, but he deserves special mention for the final match with Domon. [[spoiler:You don't get more Determinator than continuing to fight ''after your Gundam's arms have been ripped off,'']] especially when you take into account how the Mobile Trace System works. [[spoiler: Not even getting impaled by Domon's Burning Finger convinced him to stop fighting. The Emperor of China had to call off the fight to stop him from killing himself trying to keep the fight going.]]
* CrossdressingVoices: Notably, he's voiced by a woman in the English version (The male Creator/KappeiYamaguchi voices him in the Japanese version).
* FacialMarkings: Has a mole on his forehead, which might be a ''bindi''.
%%* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Sanguine.
* FullNameBasis: He's ''always'' called Sai Saici, never one or the other.
* FunPersonified: He's still a kid and loves to run around making a ruckus.
* GenerationXerox: His grandfather was also a Gundam Fighter.
* GuileHero: His first episode is one big BatmanGambit. With Dragon Gundam stolen, Sai Saici poses as a harmless chef and tricks Domon, tricks the bandits who stole it, tricks Domon ''again,'' and repeats until he has the Gundam back. [[spoiler:And when he's [[BrainwashedAndCrazy infected by DG Cells]] in Shinjuku, he opts to man the subway controls in order to run the cars over Domon, rather than engage him directly like the others.]] Can also consider how he acted before his final fight with Domon as an example of this. Chibodee showed his new Machine Gun Punch to Domon as a show of force. George showed his new Rose Hurricane to Domon as a matter of honor. Sai Saici ''almost'' shows his new Shin Ryuusei Kochouken technique to Domon when he's fight Allenby, but stops at the last minute in order to keep it a secret.
* HormoneAddledTeenager: [[EatingTheEyeCandy Enjoys every moment]] of seeing Nastasha skinnydipping and upskirts Rain.
* IdiotHero: When he isn't fighting or doing fight-related things, he's a pretty goofy, immature kid. Sometimes overestimates his own abilities, too. However, as shown by BrilliantButLazy, GuileHero, and TeenGenius, he subverts the trope ''hard'' when he ''is'' doing fight-related things.
* LetsGetDangerous: He acts like a hyperactive little kid most of the time, but when he's in a gundam fight he's a force to be reckoned with. He's the ''only'' member of the Shuffle Alliance who forced Domon to acknowledge a draw, rather than being beaten outright. [[spoiler:This is especially true during his final match with Domon, where he becomes so serious about preparing that his guardians are actually worried about him.]]
%%* {{Keet}}
* KidAppealCharacter: Youngest of the main characters. (Was actually very popular among younger fans during the original run.)
* OlderThanTheyLook: He's 16. Looks about 12, largely due to his personality and the fact that TeensAreShort.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: His final match with Domon. All of a sudden he gets ''really'' serious about training, which is met with approval by one of his teachers but concern by the other. [[spoiler:Sai Saici found his father's letter to them and was determined not to let the Shaolin Temple down.]]
* ParentalAbandonment: [[spoiler: His DisappearedDad dies from sickness while nothing is known about his MissingMom.]]
* ThePrankster: He especially shows this side of him in the Guyana Highlands.
* PrehensileHair: Dragon Gundam has a bladed ponytail that can be used as an impromptu weapon.
* ReligiousBruiser: He's raised by Buddhist monks and is seen praying before a statue of Buddha late in the series. He's even fighting for the sake of his temple.
* SinsOfOurFathers: His grandfather Sai Feilong was Neo-China's Gundam Fighter in the 4th Gundam Fight, where he accidentally killed Neo-Egypt's Dahal Muhammed[[note]]the Pharaoh Gundam IV's severed head exploded, destroying the cockpit[[/note]]; when Muhammed is revived by DG Cells, he tries to kill Sai Saici in revenge.
* TheSmartGuy: Mostly because [[IndyPloy he thinks]] ''[[IndyPloy fast]]'' in the battlefield.
* TeamChef: He's an amazing cook. He cooks Chinese food, of course.
* TeenGenius: Not only is he the youngest member of the new Shuffle Alliance, episode 25 reveals that he's also the youngest Gundam pilot ''of all time''. His feats then include managing to force a draw with Domon in their first match, attaining Hyper Mode, continuing to fight after losing both of his Gundam arms in his final match with Domon, taking a hit from the Burning Finger head on and overcoming it, and he manages to master the most advanced of all Shaolin techniques. During their final battle he even manages to overcome the Burning Finger and destroys the gundam's right arm, causing more damage than to Domon than any other member of the Shuffle Alliance.
* {{Troll}}: Some of his pranks and perverted antics seem more about getting reactions than anything else.
* WarriorMonk: He's a Shaolin Monk. It's how he learned his martial arts moves.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: HATES mummies and anything related to the supernatural. Naturally, Neo Egypt's previous Gundam Fighter has a grudge against his father and, by proxy, him. He's also terrified of rats.

The Shuffle Alliance appears to finish off the Shinjuku arc. They are quite possibly the strongest Gundam Fighters in the world, on the same level as Master Asia. In fact, Master Asia ''was'' one of them, and they're back to pass judgment on him for his FaceHeelTurn.

Led by Black Joker, they team up with Domon in Gundams modeled on card suits (which tells us what all this "King of Hearts" stuff is about) to take on the DG-cell infectees, but their era is passing by, and a new generation has to take up the reins.

Although they only appear in two episodes in the story, there is a prequel manga about their younger days called "Mobile Fighter G Gundam: 7th Fight."

They are quite possibly the Guyana Highlands to help him train and unlock strongest Gundam Fighters in the serene state of mind that Domon needs to unlock his "true" SuperMode. He is a much better fighter than everyone except perhaps world, on the same level as Master Asia. In fact, Master Asia ''was'' one of them, and can beat they're back to pass judgment on him for his FaceHeelTurn.

* BadassLongcoat: Or Badass German Uniform.
* BadassMoustache: [[spoiler:The original Schwartz sported a PornStache similar to Master Asia's.]]
* BatmanGambit: He uses motivational ones on Domon--leaving him to fight alone in Guyana in the hopes that Domon wouldn't fight recklessly [[spoiler:did not work]] and inviting Rain to join his crew to get her and Domon back together [[spoiler:did work]]. Sometimes it ends badly for him.
* BigBrotherMentor: To Domon, and slightly to Rain. [[spoiler: Sort-off literally in the former's case.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: Pulls these once in a while.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Schwarz’ Gundam Spiegel is equipped with Spiegel Blades on its forearms. These katar-like weapons typically protrude backwards from the elbows but can be reversed to a forward facing position as well.
* BrainUploading: [[spoiler: On the receiving end. Using the last of his free will, Kyoji Kshu transfers his memories, personality and likeliness to Schawtz's reanimated corpse.]]
* CameBackStrong: [[spoiler: He is resurrected with a much younger body. Said body is also a BadassBookworm, thus greatly adding to whatever level of intellect his original body already has.]]
* CharClone: Masked and [[spoiler:secretly the hero's brother... kinda]], although he doesn't bear nearly as much physical resemblance as others in the series. He does fill the roles of TheRival (inasmuch as any other Gundam Fighter) and TheMentor to Domon. He's about as much an {{Expy}} of [[spoiler:[[Anime/SpeedRacer Racer X]]]] as of Char.

When it comes off the second time as a result of injury in the finals, it stays off, and everyone is flabbergasted.
* DualWielding: The arm-blades on his Gundam.
* DubNameChange: The Spiegel Gundam is renamed Shadow Gundam in the English dub and Jupiter Gundam in the Filipino dub.
* MaskPower: A case of ShowingTheirWork, since his voice actually ''is'' slightly muffled from wearing the mask over his mouth. (Hori apparently did this by putting a sheet of paper over the microphone whenever it was needed)
* MasterOfDisguise: He disguises himself flawlessly as an old man (with an entirely different build, no less) and then as an animal statue. Because he's a ninja.
* McNinja: The poster boy for this trope ([[spoiler:and yet, not quite a true example -- unless the Kasshu's are secretly German]]). Or rather, Schwarz should have been called von Ninja. The director said he's based on Japan's idea of America's idea of what ninja can do. [[spoiler: The original, deceased Schwartz Bruder was, however, a straight example.]]

* MentorOccupationalHazard: [[spoiler: Domon is forced to kill him and Kyoji to stop the Devil Gundam.]]

One might infer that this has been a problem for them in the past, although given that in the current set of Gundam fights, there's a resurrected mummy and a resurrected Englishman, it's probably not that hard to wonder about that sort of thing.

->'''Mobile Fighter:''' [=GF13=]-052NT Minaret Fighters:''' [=GF13=]-001NH Kowloon Gundam, [=GF13=]-001NHII Master Gundam

Master Asia is the man who taught Domon to fight, the champion of the 12th Gundam Fight for Neo-Hong Kong, and the former King of Hearts. He is an incredible martial artist, able to destroy mobile suits with the sash around his waist and move buildings with sheer force of spirit. He teaches the philosophy that martial artists communicate their souls by using their fists.

He reunites with Domon in Shinjuku, but soon reveals that he's in league with Kyoji and the Devil Gundam. For the rest of the series, he and Domon fight bitterly, but Master Asia still has some measure of regard for his "idiot pupil."
----
* BodyHorror: AbsurdlySharpBlade: His sash--and honestly any strip of cloth he gets his hands on--can slice through steel girders like they're made of salami.
* AllThereInTheManual: The spinoff manga ''7th Fight'' details his past [[spoiler:as Shuuji Kurosu, Gundam Fighter for Neo-Japan]]
* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:He wants what's best for Earth's biosphere.]]
* BadassBoast: In a series full of them, his proclamation that he will become SUPER ASIA is probably the most beloved and well-remembered. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSHfJuGzUdM It really has to be seen to be believed]].
* BadassMustache: He's got a prominent PornStache.
* BrokenPedestal: For Domon.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: In one episode, Master Asia can't jump or kick because of a hurt leg. So he just ''punches'' the inconvenient skyscraper out of the way.
* ClimaxBoss: While he is truly Domon's most personal antagonist in the series, Domon always has to deal with a bigger scenario afterwards everytime they fight. He is, however, the FinalBoss of the Gundam Fight.
* CoolHorse: Fuunsaiki, who is so awesome that he ''has his own Gundam!''
* CoolOldGuy: He's so cool he doesn't even need a Trace suit to pilot his Gundams.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Master Asia's (MidSeasonUpgrade) Gundam is the Master Gundam.
* DespairEventHorizon: [[spoiler:Shortly after winning the previous Gundam Fight, he becomes aware of all the destruction he and the other Gundam fighters had caused and hits this, causing his FaceHeelTurn.]]
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler:After Domon defeats him in battle.]]
* TheDragon: He cannot pilot the Devil Gundam and be the actual BigBad himself (which he regrets) because of his terminal illness, but is determined to aid it in any way he can.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He is less than impressed with Prime Minister Wong using every dishonorable tactic to bring down Domon. But when he sees Allenby brainwashed into the berserker state, which is incredibly painful for her, he is truly enraged with Wong and even threatens to attack Wong directly if Wong didn't stop.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: His name isn't ''really'' Asia.
It's through his ''horrible'' situation that we learn actually [[spoiler:Shuuji Kurosu.]]
* FacePalmOfDoom: The Master Gundam's Darkness Finger, the EvilCounterpart to both Domon's Shining and God Fingers.
* FallenHero: He's still loved and admired by the citizens of Hong Kong but he's long since ceased to care
about the true extent Gundam Fight, except as a means to an end.
* FinishingMove: ''Darkness Finger'', ''Sekiha Tenkyouken'' [[spoiler:''Shakunetsu Shinshine Finger'', ''Heartful Finger''.]]
* FlunkyBoss: Until his and Domon's FinalBattle, Master Asia either has {{Mook}}s in his corner or fights alongside the Devil Gundam's {{Weaponized Offspring}}s.
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler:He reconciles with his pupil and dies to a beautiful sunrise.]]
* HandicappedBadass: His terminal illness doesn't stop him from kicking lots (and lots) of asses.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Comes to believe this due to the environmental devastation they cause.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He's ''furious'' when Wong attempts to sabotage one of Domon's matches, and later when Wong [[spoiler: builds his own Berserker system to control Allenby]] during a 2-on-2 match with Allenby and Domon, but he's not seen raising any objections when his underlings sabotage one of George's matches, making it seem that he only really cares about dirty tactics when Domon's involved.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: His sash, or any other strip of cloth he has to hand.
* IncurableCoughOfDeath: Which happens to be the only thing that stops him from beating the hell out of Wong with his sash over that Berserker system incident. It also prevents him from becoming the new core life unit for the Devil/Dark Gundam, a fact that he laments.
* InvincibleVillain: For most
of the DG Cells.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Under
series, Master Asia cannot be defeated. Domon loses to him everytime unless he drives him away with Shining Gundam's Super Mode. Chibodee, George, Sai Saici and Argo tried to take him on at the effect same time and defeated them easily. Only Schwarz is able to fight him on equal terms, and even then Master Asia is still shown to be stronger than him.
* LargeHam: He out-hams ''everyone'' here. And considering the series... well, that's a FEAT.

They find common ground in their circumstances; Allenby is not a Fighter by choice, but an orphan put into a military program to create a perfect fighter. When Domon breaks the Berserker system, allowing her to fight on her own rather than as part of a machine, she starts to fall in love with him.

Allenby accompanies and helps the Shuffle Alliance investigate the shady dealings in Neo-Hong Kong and becomes Domon's training partner for

* WolverineClaws: His AwesomenessByAnalysis: Somehow she's able to perform the Erupting Burning Finger, despite the Nobel Gundam not being equipped to do so, just from watching Domon use it.
* TheBerserker: In Berserk Mode, of course. She hates fighting this way and gets irritated whenever her crew leader laments that it's not fixed yet, preferring to battle on her own considerable merits.

* InformedAbility: Allenby is touted as an incredible fighter, even able to take out Argo in less than a minute. Despite this, most of her on-screen battles see her being soundly defeated, even by Rain. Her only victory comes from a team match where Domon carried almost the entire fight.

is seen able to defeat her without killing her and surgically removes the DG cell infection, returning Allenby to normal. Good thing the Rising Gundam was perfectly equipped for precision strikes, and Rain is skilled at archery.]]
* MagicalGirlWarrior: Her Gundam looks very ''Franchise/SailorMoon''-ish, which, combined with her more physical fighting style invokes this trope.
* OneOfTheKids: After she becomes a regular, she's usually goofing around with Hoy and Ming when not interacting directly with Domon.
* OrphansOrdeal: Was raised by the military because of her parents's death when she was a child.
* SailorFuku: Nobel Gundam is essentially designed as a Gundam version of ''Franchise/SailorMoon''. More specifically, it's based on [[CodeNameSailorV Sailor V]], with an alternate version being based on Sailor Venus. Suplemtery Materials says variants for each of the Senshi exist as well as Super Sailor Moon and Super Sailor Chibimoon
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: She doesn't even give the rules enough consideration for such a statement. Whenever someone tries to point out that she's helping a rival or sharing proprietary military tech, her reaction will range anywhere from "whatever, old-timer" to complete bafflement because she ''doesn't see the problem''. As far as she's concerned, she's just helping her friends.
* {{Shorttank}}: Depsite her tomboyish appearance, she's still quite feminine.
* SixthRanger: To the Shuffle Alliance. Starts as a dangerous rival (if unwillingly so) but she quickly befriends them and helps them however she can.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Tomboy to Rain's girly girl. Again, this is inverted for their Gundams, as Allenby's Nobel Gundam is the girly one out of the two.

* VoiceOfTheLegion: When she's in Berserk Mode; only in the dub, though.
* WhipItGood: The Nobel Gundam is
equipped with these.a rhythmic gymnastics inspired Beam Ribbon that Allenby uses as a whip in battle to damage and entangle her opponent.
* WorthyOpponent: Fights Domon at his level when she first meets him, after sweeping everyone else who challenged her in a battle simulator. It ends in a draw because the arcade machine can't keep up with them.

* MagicFeather: Han gives Domon some "wander bug" powder to give him the strength and courage to beat Marcelot--of course, there's no such thing and it's just regular spice. Subverted after Domon wins and cheekily thanks him for the spice, not having been fooled.

The enormous Devil Gundam was created by Dr. Raizou Kasshu and his son Kyoji as the pinnacle of their research, possessing the "three great theoretical capabilities" of self-evolution, self-recovery, and self-replication; in essence a living Gundam. It was stolen by Kyoji and brought to Earth, and its infects Gundam Fighters with DG cells to turn them into slaves to its omnicidal will.

The truth of the matter is that it was created as the ''Ultimate'' Gundam, designed to restore Earth's environment before Japan's military tried to confiscate it for use as a weapon. Kyoji took it to prevent such a thing, but damage from the crash landing caused its AI to decide that the best way to restore Earth was to kill all the humans polluting it.

* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: The Italians hate him as much as everyone else. The only reason he's given such leeway and is the Gundam Fighter is because, as Domon said, "He's strong".
* AxCrazy: Loves to inflict violence on people from the start. He gets even worse during the Finals.
* CombatPragmatist: Unlike Chapman above, Michelo never has anything resembling morals, and is willing to try every trick in the book if that's what it takes to win.
* TheDragon: To Master Asia, along with Chapman.
* DivingKick: His specialty techniques, the Silver Legs and its stronger counterpart Rainbow Legs.

* MotiveDecay: Though he didn't have much of a motive beyond being the Psycho For Hire equivalent of a Gundam Fighter to begin with, Michelo's return in the finals makes it clear he no longer cares about winning the Gundam Fight at all, or about even his own glory. All he cares about now is revenge on Domon.
* PowerGivesYouWings: Evil power in his case, as his Neros Gundam is upgraded into the winged Gundam Heaven's Sword by the Devil Gundam.
* PsychoForHire: He doesn't ever mention anything about Italy or its prospects in the Gundam Fight; he seems to be in it purely for beating people up.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Being the Gundam Fighter of Neo Italy essentially makes Michelo immune to any prosecution by his own nation's police. Naturally, he abuses this immunity with glee, and just as naturally the cops cuff him ''the second'' he loses to Shining (and is thus disqualified from the tournament, at least until Wong intervenes on his behalf later).
* SpikesOfVillainy: Neros Gundam has a pair of spiked wrist guards and his outfit out-of-Gundam had spiked kneepads.
* StarterVillain: He's blatantly evil and has his own specialty technique, plus he has a lot of Mafia muscle. Doesn't save him from the Shining Finger.
* SupportingLeader: An evil version, as he successfully organizes a cabal of embittered Gundam Fighters against the Shuffle Alliance and acts as their leader despite taking his own marching orders from Wong and Master Asia.
* TheBusCameBack: He was PutOnABus after his defeat in the first episode and there was no indication we would be seeing him again. And then, out of nowhere he shows up to compete in the finals (despite being firmly disqualified by his defeat).
* TookALevelInBadass: When he shows up in the finals, he's suddenly able to fight evenly with Domon's God Gundam [[spoiler: thanks to being infected with DG Cells. And this is even before he transforms into Gundam Heaven's Sword.

* ClimaxBoss: While he is truly Domon's most personal antagonist in the series, Domon always has to deal with a bigger scenario afterwards everytime they fight. He is, however, the FinalBoss of the
low-tier Gundam Fight.
* CoolHorse: Fuunsaiki, who is so awesome that he ''has his own Gundam!''
* CoolOldGuy: He's so cool he doesn't even need a Trace suit to pilot his Gundams.

* HandicappedBadass: His terminal illness doesn't stop him from kicking lots (and lots) of asses.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Comes to believe this due to the environmental devastation they cause.
* {{Hypocrite}}: He's ''furious'' when Wong attempts to sabotage one of Domon's matches, and later when Wong [[spoiler: builds his own Berserker system to control Allenby]] during a 2-on-2 match with Allenby and
Domon, but he's not seen raising any objections when his underlings sabotage one of George's matches, making it seem that he only really cares about dirty tactics when Domon's involved.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: His sash, or any other strip of cloth he has to hand.

* BewareTheSillyOnes: He might be a clown, but he managed to take down George and gave Domon a tough time in the circus ring.
* CurbStompBattle: Is initially dealing one to Chibodee by [[spoiler: exploiting his childhood trauma of laughing clowns,]] until Chibodee's Gals snap him out of it and he turns the tables.
* DittoFighter: Dittomediate flavor. He's able to copy his enemy's moves exactly, from the Rose Bits to the God Finger (although in the case of the latter it's a confetti explosion, since they're in a circus ring at the time).
* ExpressiveMask: His face is apparently a mask (as evidenced when it's shown falling to the ground and breaking when he's defeated,) but it still has as much expressive abilities as a normal face.
* TheFaceless: His mask falls off after his defeat, but the audience never gets to see his real face.
* TheHyena: Rarely does he ever stop laughing.
* {{Jerkass}}: He learns about that Chibodee was [[spoiler: traumatized as a child by a gang dressed as clowns and deliberately exploits it]].
* MindRape: How he gets an advantage over Chibodee in their match, exploiting his trauma over [[spoiler: being held hostage by a gang dressed as clowns as a kid]] until he's near-comatose.
* MonsterClown: He has the appearance of an evil clown and is perfectly willing to exploit childhood traumas to win his fights.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He certainly plays the fool most of the time, even pratfalling in his Gundam during his pre-fight entrance.
* OutOfFocus: [[spoiler: After his defeat, he joins Michelo and Chapman to get revenge on Domon and the Shuffle Alliance alongside Neo Greece and Neo India's fighters, but his last contribution to the plot is attempting to kill Chibodee by releasing a stack of logs onto him while he was driving, causing him to nearly crash and fall of a steep cliff. After that, he just sits on the sidelines, and is almost immediately defeated (and possibly killed) off-screen in the final Battle Royale.]]

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Has green skin; whether or not he's part [[SnakePeople Snake Person]] is never made clear (since he seems physically human otherwise).
* AnimalMotif: Snakes, cobras to be specific, if looking at him and his Gundam is not obvious enough.
* BeastOfBattle: On foot he rides his cobra as one of these and he can also do this in his Gundam.
* CombatPragmatist: He scouts out the competition before a fight to learn their weaknesses and isn't above exploiting ''any'' weakness he might find.
* CombiningMecha: His Cobra Gundam is actually two independent machines, one piloted by Sijiema and one piloted by his cobra. The two Mobile Fighters can attack independently or combine into a single unit.
* CripplingTheCompetition: He doesn't do this directly, but he's more than happy to take advantage of it.
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: He gleefully attacks an injured Domon and even strikes him in his bad arm again and again before going in for the kill.
* KnifeNut: His snake charming flute conceals a hidden knife that he uses to finish off his foes.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Much like Kyral after him, Sijiema is more than willing to kill his competition before the Fight, and comes very close to killing Domon.

* OutOfFocus: [[spoiler: After his defeat, he joins Michelo and Chapman to get revenge on Domon and the Shuffle Alliance alongside Neo Greece and Neo Portugal's fighters, but his last contribution to the plot is attempting to kill Sai Sici by pushing him in front of a moving double decker bus, causing him to nearly get creamed. After that, he just sits on the sidelines, and is almost immediately defeated (and possibly killed) off-screen in the final Battle Royale.]]
* SmugSnake: Perhaps the most literal example this series has to offer.
* SnakeCharmer: His flute is even weaponized, as it contains a hidden blade.
* SnakesAreSinister: He has a giant evil cobra that obeys him and is himself quite snakelike.
* TrapMaster: His usual tactic is to use his cobra to immobilize his opponent (never mind that cobras don't constrict their prey) and then finish them off while they're helpless.
* VillainDecay: Like Romario and Marcelot above, Sijiema is played as a very dangerous opponent in his debut episode and then degenerates into a minor nuisance due to being OutOfFocus.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He rides around on a ''gigantic'' cobra, which serves as his co-pilot in the Cobra Gundam. The Gundam itself is styled like a cobra, though its torso can separate and convert to humanoid form while the snake body is constricting his opponent.

However, he isn't just interested in another four years--Wong covets the Devil Gundam's power to become ruler of the universe.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Unlike most Gundam Fighters, Michelo doesn't have fans at all, and if anything his countrymen seem to particularly despise him due to his flagrant abuse of his Gundam Fighter status.
* AnimalMotifs: His hairstyle is a prominent rooster comb, he has a beak-like nose and his upgraded Gundam transforms into a bird. It's safe to say that he and ComicBook/ThePenguin would be fast friends if they ever met.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: The Italians hate him as much as everyone else. The only reason he's given such leeway and is the Gundam Fighter is because, as Domon said, "He's strong".

to win grab and infect its victims.
* TheCorruption: DG Cells.
* DubNameChange: Known as
the tournament. ''After'' fighting (and losing to) Domon, he quickly degenerates into a bitter also-ran grousing Dark Gundam in a cafe English.
* EldritchAbomination: A rare mechanical type.
* FateWorseThanDeath: Being its "pilot" deprives one of their free will while also having their life force gradually sucked away.
* GoneHorriblyRight: [[spoiler: Was created to restore the Earth's environment, and attempts to do just that. It's just ''how'' it intends to do it that makes it the BigBad.]]
* KillAllHumans: Concludes it has to do this to [[spoiler: restore Earth's environment]].
* KnightOfCerebus: Everything
about that "dirty technique" Domon used it played completely seriously. Once it's existence is revealed the show gets DarkerAndEdgier with the reveals about Domon's past and most of the cast are traumatized from meeting it.
* MarathonBoss: Everytime the heroes fight it, they have
to beat him. [[spoiler:Michelo recruits him ''several'' enemies to get through first.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: Once the Devil Gundam's face plate opened up similarly to the Shining Gundam's. This revealed a mouth packed with sharp yellow teeth.
* PoweredByAForsakenChild: The Devil Gundam's "pilot" is used
as its power source to operate.
* PowerGivesYouWings: Its [[spoiler:colony sized body]] grows a pair of enormous wings
part of a coalition of enemy way through the struggle.
* RecurringBoss: It is fought three times throughout the series, including the GrandFinale.
* RecurringElement: Every form the Devil
Gundam Fights striking at the Shuffle Alliance, but he does nothing to distinguish himself from lesser-tiered Fighters like Romario and Sijiema, and even takes after it's first insect like appearance features the upper torso of a Gundam body growing out of the forehead of a black Gundam head.
* TrueFinalBoss: Despite
being infected by DG cells on Lantau Island he doesn't get powered up to a RecurringBoss, it is still the same degree ultimate threat in series.
* WeaponizedOffspring: Its CombatTentacles can also serve
as Michelo or Chapman. Domon treats him essentially as an annoyance, defeating him his {{Mook}}s.
* TheVoiceless: It's a machine
with ridiculous ease before he resurrects and gives Domon a (slightly) tougher time. That time ends with Domon putting him down for good.]]no way of speaking.



[[folder:Romario Monini]]
->Voiced by: Naoki Tatsuta (Japanese)

->'''Mobile Fighter:''' [=GF13=]-039NP Jester Gundam

Pilot of Jester Gundam and Neo Portugal's representative. Seemingly a harmless-looking clown with a goofy-looking Gundam, but he turns out to be a formidable fighter who's specialty is copying the special techniques of other Gundam fighters. He's also apparently into psychological warfare, as evidenced when he looked into Chibodee's past and exploited his fear of clowns and the traumatic event surrounding it to his advantage.

----
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He might be a clown, but he managed to take down George and gave Domon a tough time in the circus ring.
* CurbStompBattle: Is initially dealing one to Chibodee by [[spoiler: exploiting his childhood trauma of laughing clowns,]] until Chibodee's Gals snap him out of it and he turns the tables.
* DittoFighter: Dittomediate flavor. He's able to copy his enemy's moves exactly, from the Rose Bits to the God Finger (although in the case of the latter it's a confetti explosion, since they're in a circus ring at the time).
* ExpressiveMask: His face is apparently a mask (as evidenced when it's shown falling to the ground and breaking when he's defeated,) but it still has as much expressive abilities as a normal face.
* TheFaceless: His mask falls off after his defeat, but the audience never gets to see his real face.
* TheHyena: Rarely does he ever stop laughing.
* {{Jerkass}}: He learns about that Chibodee was [[spoiler: traumatized as a child by a gang dressed as clowns and deliberately exploits it]].
* MindRape: How he gets an advantage over Chibodee in their match, exploiting his trauma over [[spoiler: being held hostage by a gang dressed as clowns as a kid]] until he's near-comatose.
* MonsterClown: He has the appearance of an evil clown and is perfectly willing to exploit childhood traumas to win his fights.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He certainly plays the fool most of the time, even pratfalling in his Gundam during his pre-fight entrance.
* OutOfFocus: [[spoiler: After his defeat, he joins Michelo and Chapman to get revenge on Domon and the Shuffle Alliance alongside Neo Greece and Neo India's fighters, but his last contribution to the plot is attempting to kill Chibodee by releasing a stack of logs onto him while he was driving, causing him to nearly crash and fall of a steep cliff. After that, he just sits on the sidelines, and is almost immediately defeated (and possibly killed) off-screen in the final Battle Royale.]]
* VillainDecay: He's hyped as a very dangerous Fighter in his episode, defeating Rose Gundam with a mimicry of its own specialty technique and giving Chibodee a ''very'' tough time. Afterwards... well, the spoilered out example above really says it all.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Chandra Sijiema]]

->'''Mobile Fighter:''' [=GF13=]-030NIN Cobra Gundam

The pilot of Neo India's Cobra Gundam, Sijiema is a ruthless fighter who enjoys stalking his opponents before a fight. He nearly takes out Domon before their fight, but withdraws when Rain catches up to them. After losing his match to Domon, he later takes Michelo up on his offer to antagonize the Shuffle Alliance between battles as part of a revenge plot against Domon.
----
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Has green skin; whether or not he's part [[SnakePeople Snake Person]] is never made clear (since he seems physically human otherwise).
* AnimalMotif: Snakes, cobras to be specific, if looking at him and his Gundam is not obvious enough.
* BeastOfBattle: On foot he rides his cobra as one of these and he can also do this in his Gundam.
* CombatPragmatist: He scouts out the competition before a fight to learn their weaknesses and isn't above exploiting ''any'' weakness he might find.
* CombiningMecha: His Cobra Gundam is actually two independent machines, one piloted by Sijiema and one piloted by his cobra. The two Mobile Fighters can attack independently or combine into a single unit.
* CripplingTheCompetition: He doesn't do this directly, but he's more than happy to take advantage of it.
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: He gleefully attacks an injured Domon and even strikes him in his bad arm again and again before going in for the kill.
* KnifeNut: His snake charming flute conceals a hidden knife that he uses to finish off his foes.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: Much like Kyral after him, Sijiema is more than willing to kill his competition before the Fight, and comes very close to killing Domon.
* MusicalAssassin: Both literally and figuratively. He uses his flute in combat and is seen taking out his opponents before the fight.
* OutOfFocus: [[spoiler: After his defeat, he joins Michelo and Chapman to get revenge on Domon and the Shuffle Alliance alongside Neo Greece and Neo Portugal's fighters, but his last contribution to the plot is attempting to kill Sai Sici by pushing him in front of a moving double decker bus, causing him to nearly get creamed. After that, he just sits on the sidelines, and is almost immediately defeated (and possibly killed) off-screen in the final Battle Royale.]]
* SmugSnake: Perhaps the most literal example this series has to offer.
* SnakeCharmer: His flute is even weaponized, as it contains a hidden blade.
* SnakesAreSinister: He has a giant evil cobra that obeys him and is himself quite snakelike.
* TrapMaster: His usual tactic is to use his cobra to immobilize his opponent (never mind that cobras don't constrict their prey) and then finish them off while they're helpless.
* VillainDecay: Like Romario and Marcelot above, Sijiema is played as a very dangerous opponent in his debut episode and then degenerates into a minor nuisance due to being OutOfFocus.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: He rides around on a ''gigantic'' cobra, which serves as his co-pilot in the Cobra Gundam. The Gundam itself is styled like a cobra, though its torso can separate and convert to humanoid form while the snake body is constricting his opponent.

[[folder:Colonel Ulube Ishikawa]]
->Voiced by: Creator/NobuoTobita (Japanese), Dave Kelly (English)

->'''Mobile Fighters:''' JMF-1336R Rising Gundam, [[spoiler:Grand Master Gundam]]

Ulube is part of Neo-Japan's Gundam Fight committee and head of their military. At one time he was their Gundam Fighter, known for his ingenious fighting techniques, but in the finals he was defeated by Master Asia. After that humiliation, he encountered the Devil Gundam and made a DealWithTheDevil to help its resurrection so that he could TakeOverTheWorld. From that day on he bided his time until Domon's victory, which gave Ulube the opportunity to steal the Devil Gundam, force Rain to be its core unit, and declare himself ruler of the universe.

----
* AllYourPowersCombined: [[spoiler:His Grand Master Gundam is essentially an amalgamation of the Four Heavenly Kings, and has all the powers and abilities of those units]].
* BattleStrip: Takes off his shirt before he boards the Grand Master Gundam, revealing that he is very ripped.
-->"Good thing I've continued to work on my body!"
* BigBad: The primary human antagonist of the series, although this is only revealed toward the very end.
* BigBadWannabe: [[spoiler: Turns out to be an even bigger one than Wong Yunfat, as Wong actually had complete, albeit brief control of the Devil Gundam unlike any other human antagonist. Ulube may have successfully resurrected the Devil Gundam to its full power against all odds, but its revealed that the DG Cells have already taken over him by the time he tried to re-capture the rogue Devil Gundam. He never had control, and is nothing more than the Devil Gundam's puppet and mouthpiece all along.]]
* BigBadEnsemble: With the Devil Gundam.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: He appears to be a ReasonableAuthorityFigure and Karato's more-competent underling for most of the series.
* CharClone: One of the two in the series, with the other being Schwarz Bruder. And between his his deeply manipulative nature, nose for opportunism, and apocalyptic ambitions, he's a clear clone of the BigBad version of Char from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack''.
* ClimaxBoss: The one responsible for the Kashu family's unfortunate fate, [[spoiler: as well as Rain being forced into "piloting" the Devil Gundam]]. Still, the Devil Gundam [[spoiler: "piloted" by Rain]] is the TrueFinalBoss.
* ColonelBadass: He's a former Gundam fighter who would have been champion if he didn't have the misfortune of facing the Undefeated of the East in the finals.
* DrunkWithPower: The instant he gets ahold of the Devil Gundam he discards his ReasonableAuthorityFigure facade in favor of this, and when he gets in the Grand Master Gundam he cranks it UpToEleven.
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: Played with: He doesn't so much go crazy when he gets ahold of the Devil Gundam as it allows his true craziness to come out. Read below for the specifics.
* EvilIsHammy: He's calm and reserved until he reveals himself as a bad guy. [[WorldOfHam Then he chews the scenery up with all the other characters.]]
* EvilIsNotAToy: He tried to capture the Devil Gundam to ensure Neo-Japan's domination over the entire world. It enslaves him instead.
* EvilIsPetty: He gleefully taunts Domon about Master Asia's recent death and makes it clear that if the Undefeated of the East had a grave that he'd be dancing on it.
* EvilSorcerer: Not actually one, but labels himself as such in his final battle with the Shuffle Alliance.
* FallenHero: He was Neo-Japan's Gundam Fighter in the 12th Fight. Would've possibly remained a good guy if not for his humiliating defeat to Master Asia; after that, it's implied that he never was the same again.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He puts on a good front of being a ReasonableAuthorityFigure for the overwhelming majority of the series (45 of the 50 episodes) but as is ultimately revealed it's all just a mask and he's in fact quite a nasty and sadistic character, taunting Domon gleefully and taking dark joy in the recent death of his old enemy Master Asia.
* GambitRoulette: His success was based in great part on Wong transporting the Devil Gundam to the final battle site and Domon's victory.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Received his from the Devil Gundam.
* InformedAttribute: Rising Gundam is stated at multiple points as having been built for Ulube's own personal use, yet when we finally see Rising in action it seems to fit Rain ''far'' better than it ever would have Ulube. Even when it is eventually revealed that Ulube was in fact a former Gundam Fighter, his Mobile Fighter from the 12th fight has nothing in common with Rising, and seems to fight more like a precursor to the Shining Gundam than the naginata, bow-and-arrow and shield using Rising Gundam.
* MaskPower: Which covers said scars from view. [[spoiler:It also conceals his DG cell infection.]]
* ManipulativeBastard: It turns out he's been playing everyone from the beginning--he was the one who planted the idea of betrayal in Dr. Mikamura's head, he's the one who prosecuted Dr. Kasshu in court, and he's the one who put Domon into the Gundam Fight.
* MonstrosityEqualsWeakness: [[spoiler:Up until the DG cells take him over completely, Ulube utterly dominates the Shuffle Alliance. After he becomes a cackling, grey-skinned DG cell monstrosity the heroes break free of his Gundam and destroy him in a single blow.]]
* MouthOfSauron: Turned into this by the Devil Gundam.
* OpportunisticBastard: Much like CCA-era Char before him, Ulube rises to power not by any grand scheming but simply by waiting for all his rivals (Dark Kyoji, Master Asia, Wong) to kill each other off. He rides Wong's coattails in particular, usurping all his research after his death to figure out how the Devil Gundam works, and his "plan" is basically you'd get if Palpatine from ''Franchise/StarWars'' abandoned all notions of political subterfuge and just indulged his LargeHam DrunkOnTheDarkSide persona 24/7. Not surprisingly, the entire rest of the universe unites against him.
* PecFlex: Flexing his abs is enough to deflect a Bursting Machine-Gun Punch.
* SmugSnake: His plan essentially hinged on Domon being able to defeat Master Asia, the one man who effectively ended Ulube's own Gundam Fighter career by defeating him, and fully expects to defeat Domon after he won against Master Asia. His own gloats were quickly shut down by Domon when he confronts him, and that was after dismissing and underestimating his own accomplice. Ulube only managed to resurrect the Devil Gundam through Wong Yun-Fat's own research of Ulube's own secret project. Most glaringly, Ulube's own plans for the Devil Gundam went bad once it escaped to earth [[spoiler: since it destroyed his squad and shot DG cells into him, making him a slave to the Devil Gundam's will. If he was under the delusion that he had control over the Devil Gundam and the universe after that, he is most definitely this.]]
* SoreLoser: Most of the antagonists are this but Ulube takes it to the next level. Literally ''the entire plot'' happens because he can't get over being beaten by Master Asia in the 12th Gundam Fight.
* StepfordSmiler: He puts up a good front for most of the series as a put-upon ReasonableAuthorityFigure trying to reign in his incompetent boss Karato.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: He's tall and dark-skinned, though the snarky side doesn't come out for 45 episodes. Once it comes out, though, it comes out ''[[LargeHam in force]]''.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:Ulube ''thinks'' he's calling the shots, but he's nothing more than the Devil Gundam's tool from their first meeting onward]].
* WalkingSpoiler: Most of his character was revealed ''four episodes'' before the show ended.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Zigzagged and deconstructed, as Ulube certainly goes drunk on the dark side after being infected by DG cells, but through his MotiveRant to Domon it's revealed that Ulube's insanity originates not from the Devil Gundam but is entirely of his own making: after losing to Master Asia, he decided that "[[MightMakesRight It is power that rules this universe]]" and became obsessed with seizing "that ultimate truth" and making it his own. The Ultimate Gundam and Dr. Mikamura's jealousy were simply the tools he thought he needed to seize that power, and the Devil Gundam doesn't so much make him crazy as allow him the freedom to show the world how crazy he really was all along.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: He pulls this on '''all''' his allies, first Mikamura when he realizes he needs Rain more than him, then on all his fellow military officers. As a reasonable person might guess, opting to fight the entire rest of the universe single-handedly doesn't really work out for him.
