There aren't many completely iredeemable characters in Gundam, but there's a few characters that I can argue as to being pretty much evil people:

Rau Le Crueset struck me as pretty damn irredeemably evil in the end, cloning blues or no. Especially compared to Rey.

Rau wasn't really evil, more like just batshit crazy in the end.

He didn't have any ideology, or plans as to what to do afterwards. Like the Joker, he just wanted to watch the world burn (literally)

He first comes off like that, yeah, but then Destiny rolls around and we see Rey in pretty much almost the exact same damn circumstances and he turns out to be quite different and feel differently about his affliction, which makes me lose a lot of sympathy for Rau's "let's just fucking kill everyone" plan. There were many different paths he could've taken concerning his cloning and what to do about it (like Rey's "let's change the world so more people like me aren't necessary" plan) and he takes the stupid genocide route.

And comparing him to Joker isn't a good way to emphasize he wasn't evil, because Joker was straight-up evil.

Being insane excludes slapping a good/evil label on someone? That's a can of worms you don't want to open up in a Gundam discussion.

I'd say Rau was the worse kind of evil. His motivation was basically "I'm going to die young and I don't think the world deserves to exist without me, so I'm going to manipulate the world into total omnicide because if I don't get to live nobody does."

I mean really. You have to be on a whole other level of selfish and petty to try to end the world because you think you're so much better than everyone else that they don't deserve to live if you can't.

I think you all are forgetting someone...Ali from 00!

Now that guy was just plain evil to the core.

Is this a troll attempt?

Because you used red for your font colour. Some trollers use bright colours like red to attract attention.

Because your post is short, and doesn't have much material for further discussion. Some trollers do this to make an impact and gain eyeballs.

Anyways I agree Asemu rocks for being the super pilot. Cooler than the X-Rounder tag that's getting all too common.

Actually I imagine it's thought to be a troll post because of its contradictory statement of "liking the show but stopping at episode 9".

Revolutionist dislikes Flit, Reddy supports mass murder, we've all got our "opinions", I suppose.

More like I call the BS on both your analysis of Flit's character. You two are not exactly critical thinkers of plots.

Should I point out I was right about Ezelcant's character all along? That he was a Social Darwinist.

Of course Revolutionist is a sore looser in a debate. He vilify Flit to prove he is correct, thinking it is easy. He gets frustrated when people present him facts.

For crying out loud the guy was calling hate speech on a fictional character and a fictional people. That is not being able to distinguish between fantasy and reality.

Now he reacts badly to an opinion calling it a troll attempt?

Doesn't change the fact that currently your actions basically say you support people who promote mass murder and genocide.
