So if Lacus were to talk to him for three minutes, she'd simply undo the scientists' tampering, not turn him into anyone he wasn't :O.
I think that was pity. This isn't Char we're talking about.

Even Heero Yuy will not be able to resist the swaying words of the Pink Princess! 3 minutes of talk will actually be like 3 days of torture for him! XD

As an example, just check the wild LaGowe from this video...

I may be in the minority here, but I never really liked Amuro. I had wanted Char to live on and Amuro dead.

Amuro had proven himself to be quite an asshole from time to time.

And his hair... oh, the hair. Now that I think about it, I might not hate him as much, had I not seen a Korean rip-off of Macross, which the Koreans titled 'Gundam' and used Amuro as a template for the protagonist. I remember in one clip, it had something to do with fighting a giant rat. Oh, the nightmares!

I feel very differently about Amuro and Char. I didn't like Amuro at all in Mobile Suit Gundam, but I thought that he was easily my favorite character in Zeta and Char's Counterattack. On the other hand, I never liked Char whenever he was called "Char", but I thought that Quattro was quite interesting.

Nice try at Shinn bashing. How about having everybody try? I think you'll find that not too many people can, or would want to, do that.

Heero Yuy.

Only he can stand outside of the cockpit of his Gundam being cool and self-destructing his Gundam right behind him all while staring at his great nemesis Zechs Marquise.

Amuro, Garrod and Loran. Kamille Bidan deserves special mention, but the first three's personality and ideals are much more in tune with my own and my own asthetic choices.

Amuro Ray for me, simply because he doesn't have any lofty ideas about war, peace etc like Kira. He's not angist driven, shows emotions (unlike Herro). As time went on, he manged to check his hot headness. And in general is simply a normal kid. He had no intention to change the world, no illusions of lasting peace, understands war for what it is, have no problem killing when needed but doesn't go overboard in killing sprees. He simply does his job as a MS pilot, fights the wars, hold on to his, compartivly speaking, realistic ideas, and win the battles that really matters. Does not realie on ultra powerful gundams or even his NT abilites too much, IE a Amuro without his NT abilities would still be a competent pilot. Not to mention being one of the best, if not the best pilots in Gundam

As for the second place, Loran, again, normal person like Amuro, holds realistic ideas, little self doubt, determined from the start and has no special powers at all.

Camille!

He goes through a ton of crap, and, for what it's worth, handles it pretty damned well too. That's not to mention he's constantly fighting against and alongside veterans from the One Year War, and earns their respect too. Oh, and he meets a somewhat untimely "end" at the end of Zeta... doesn't happen that often to Gundam protagonists!

Amuro - Because he is Amuro Ray.

Domon - Because he is Tomokazu Seki.

Loran - Because he is Laura Lora (or something similar)

No, actually we know these 3 guys are great characters and are awesome in their piloting styles and skills. Whether is it kicking the heads off the enemy MSes, insane sword techniques, mad dodging, catching/blocking bullets/giant fists etc. etc.

These guys are more dynamic than just beam spamming.

Judau - he kicks ass even without a gundam. (someone should fix his name in the poll options :/ )

Domon - Super robot = win

Shiro - He's pretty smart and gets Aina in the end.

Seabook - He's badass in Crossbone.

Heero - He's invincible.

Heero is my fav, i hated Kira in Seed(wow, he was whiny as hell, iit got on my nerves). I like his attitude better in Seed Destiny. Guess the writers decided to tone that crap down in him. He would be my second choice tho.

I have to go with Amuro. First Gundam was the first series I saw after Wing, and his character stuck with me much more than Heero ever did, and I've always liked him since. Camille is an extremely close second for me, since he's just as interesting a character to me as Amuro is, but the way he left the spotlight at the end of Zeta was really disappointing. Too bad Char wasn't an option. Hell, with Zeta and CCA, he might as well count as a lead character with all the screen time and story importance he has.

Domon is another favorite of mine. I don't know why, but I like him. Must be the fact that he can make Gundams explode with his suit's bare hands...

Ditto on Heero, but I actually liked the 'whiny' Kira. At least he was HUMAN that way. Now he is probably the most powerful hero ever. I don't think any single Newtype can take him down.

For Heero though, I must say that it's his cool demeanor other than any type of melodramatic turn that I like about him. In terms of soap opera antics, Amuro still gets the cake. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

in gs kira went through major emotional change,naive kid going strait into blood bath battles..... plus psycho flay did some damage on him
in gsd he was more settle down and has surive a major war which built his character, so yea he was more mature
