They don't have one?

I thought the red "block" was the chin....

And only ones closest with a "mouth" is Raider & Destroy....

The mouth is always found on gundam with vent marks where the face is. It applies to both gundam with and without mouths. If the gundam have a covering, it is always behind, that area. Gundams have it above the chin, and center of the two side armor, usually the decoration or vulcans.

The red block is a chin feature, nothing more.The face would work the same way a person look, that is why there isn't much difference where the mouth is. It is always under the eyes for all gundams, regardless of how different the face is.

As Gundams = based on samurai armor, it could be pretty well beneath the "helmet" part where the vents are.

Since Gundams don't eat, breathe or talk, all I can say is... "Mouth?"

This "mouth" you're talking about is just a decoration. Either there is a mouth clearly painted onto the Gundam or else it doesn't have a mouth and you're just being silly saying that it has a hidden mouth somewhere. No obvious mouth-like decoration = no mouth.

If you say it has a covered or hidden mouth, then you're just pretending that it is a human being.

It's decoration? I thought those two lines on the Gundam's mouth are for cooling purpose

Making a cooling vent look like a mouth is decoration.

Cooling is accomplished through the vents on the side of the head. One can argue that they are ports for the head's speakers, but then again most mobile suits don't have visible mouth slits.

Conclusion: the slits are more often than not, decorative.

So, in my boredom, I went around ja.wiki to look at things relating to SEED/GSD for the lulz.

So, while Kira in-series wasn't officially and generally shown to carry any nicknames of sorts, apparently he was... what, 'Strongest Soldier' or something in the novels, back in the TSA? And what's this? In Delta Astray, he's known as 'The One Who Possess the Power to End Conflicts' or something...? And is pretty famous amongst the Martians?

Is this true?

Until the start of Destiny, Kira as a pilot is an enigma to outsiders. To most, he is known as the pilot of Freedom, but not much else. Only major characters and those linked with Orb would know Kira's name. Thus nicknames are inevitable when the real name is unavailable.

After the end of Destiny, Lacus officially entered PLANT politics, and Kira became a public figure as a consequence. But nick-names have a habit of sticking, so I wouldn't be surprise if his nicknames remained.

The reference to him in Delta Astray isn't exactly a nickname, but merely a reference to what he is "supposedly" able to accomplish.

So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And itís also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

Connection between Flay & Rau?

I know this may be a old topic due to Gundam SEED having ended years ago, but I just never got this question answered:

You know how Flay Allster saw a resemblence, at least twice, between Rau la Creuset and her father. What was the point of that? I don't remember there ever being a connection between Rau and George Allster.

Is it explained in the manga, or is it just a plot hole Fuduka never bothered explaining?

While I haven't read the manga, if the resemblence is unexplained, how is it a plot hole? It's sort of obvious that it may just be a coincidence. The purpose for putting it in the story is to create a connection between Fllay and Rau, thus making it easier for her to look at the situation from his point of view.

It's because Fllay was psychologically damaged and was missing a father figure. When she was kidnapped by Rau, and Rau didn't hurt her, she instinctively grew an attachment to him. It's a phenomenon seen in real life kidnapping victims too.

Uh, maybe it's because of the fact that both her dad and Rau were voiced by the same person?

Well....first, that's true. Second, that news was announced about before the Gundam 00 aired. The reason? Code Geass season 2.

I think Rau sounds like her father a lot (well, of course they're voiced by the same VA but still... ). So that was why she took to following Rau.

The pellet dispenser is the "engine feed" the AA runs on fusion engines. Small pellets of probably HDT mix (Hydrogen Deuterium Tritium) are dispensed into the engines, which then get bombarded by lasers from all sides and get super-condensed until the Hydrogen isotopes fuse and cause a fusion explosion, propelling the AA forward. Mind you the explosion is very small, it's not like dropping an H-bomb here and there it is a series of very small explosions.
