What is your most memorable on-screen death in Gundam?

Today, we talk about a grim subject. This is Gundam, which must have wars, and wars must have deaths! These could be good deaths, bad deaths, tragic deaths, stupid deaths, WTF deaths, deaths of natural causes, deaths of not-so-natural causes, deaths of suicidal tendencies, insanity, megalomania, people-who-just-had-to-die-deaths, whatever.

So, what is your most memorable on-screen deaths?

To kick things off

Spoiler for List of RIP::

I LOL'd at Heine's death in SEED Destiny when Stellar sliced him.

... Now that I remember, there was this guy piloting the Chaos who was killed pathetically by ORB grunts during the fight of Jesus Yamato vs the Destroy. Some episodes later, we see the SAME idiot being palmed by Shinn and his Destiny. How the heck did he survived his first "death"?

I agree. Heine's death came as a semi-surprise. I mean, I know he had to 'go', but when?

As for poor Chaos-kun, no, I do not know what the deal is with him

GSD character development is awesome.

oh yeah, Raw's death in SEED was awesome, being vaporized by the GENESIS.

Another one that comes to my mind is Treize in Wing, when he impaled himself in the Altron's lance o_O

I was under the assumption that everyone had seen them already

Never mind, they are now officially spoiled.

As for you, you should take that 'quote' off

- Tak (Although once this thread grows, I am not too entirely sure if everyone would remember to put spoiler before their list of dead peoples)

Now that you mentioned it, the only reason why I remember War in the Pocket at all is because of that one mobile suit:

SturmPanzerKampfGrenadier Modell: Einhauen

(Yes, it is known simply as the Kampfer, but I prefer it, my way!)

I still think it is one of the most beautifully designed, to-the-point mobile suit, ever. Way beyond the usual in a Gundam franchise.

And simply the most unGundam, Gundam.

The next possible contestant would be the Sazabi, but we will leave that for another day.

Add me to the list of Fllay haters. She was conceited from the beginning till the end. Yeah, she repented at the very last few episodes, which was commendable, but that came too late to salvage her otherwise atrocious character.

I think I had more WTF moments, DANG and lawl moments then actually sad moments:

Gundam W: Treize Death
(It had been over a year since Gundam Wing finished airing on Toonami and I still had not seen that episode. My good friend, who taped all the episodes told me that there was an awesome battle and all this cool stuff happened. Finally I get him to let me barrow the tape and all I get is Treize hopping on Wufei's trident. I was like WTF! Where's the battle and all the uberawesomeness I was told about. Suffice it to say I was uberpissed.)

Gundam Seed: Miguel Death
(This had to be one of the funniest/coolest death scenes I've seen in Gundam. Everytime I see it, I start ROFL!!! Especially at the dramatic pause when the blade is going thru that guy's Jin. And then Dub Athrun's yell just added to it.

Gundam Seed: Nicol Death
(When I saw the uncut version, I was like DAAAAAAAAAAAANG!!!!!!!!! He got cut. Then it was funny, but then he said, "Mother...my piano" which of course ruined it. That was the mosst garbage death quote ever. You dont die saying that, you die saying something like,"For the glory of Zeon" or "Damn you, Char!!!"

Gundam: That guy who tried to kamakazi the White Base.
(Tho I never saw that episode, but I did play Gundam: Federation vs Zeon and at that part during the mission when that guy basically got screwed over and decided to go down, taking the White base w/ it, japanese style. It was so hilarious, especially since I blew him up before he even made it to White base.

Gundam Seed: Miriellia's boyfriend (forgot how to spell his name)
(When Athrun killed him, I was like DANNNNNNNNNNNNNG!!!!! Again. He was an ok guy, little annoying, but do remember him getting grinded up like that tho.

Gundam Seed/Destiny: Kira death 1 and 2
(When Kira was killed by Aegis, I was like no way...
Then he rose from the dead and I was all like HOLY CrAP WTF ZOMG BbQ spaz...
Then Kira gets killed by Shin and I'm like, Wow. Cant believe that just happened. Kira you f'ing tard. how'd you get pwn'd thru the cockpit like that by Van from Zoids (shinn has the same VA, so Shinn is no longer Shinn, but is now Van)
Then he raises from the dead again....I was like O.O He did it again...no scratches or nothing. Just bed rest. What is he? then someone told me the good news.

Gundam Wing EWeikum Barton
(I was so ready for that douche to die, so when he got shot in pack of that peanut, I lawl'd.)

Gundam Seed: Mwu death
(I felt sorry for Murrue. Those 2 were about to hook up and everything, but Mwu just had to get killed, just like her last lover did. So sad, plus Mwu was pretty cool, so I was like well that sucked)

I don't know. A survey was once taken about soldiers who faced life-or-death situations. It yielded two major results.

1. You either have no time to react and just die.

Or

2. You had time to reflect, and upon the moment of your imminent death, you always utter something about your mother, or your other loved ones.

So Damn you Char? Not really.

- Tak (Nicole's death came about as the most realistic dying process ever in Gundam. Tragic.)

I know it doesn't count, but Kira's "close-call" (in his Freedom) vs Shinn was pretty memorable for me.

Oh, and also Mwu's "death" in Gundam SEED.

First thing that came into my mind was Nicol's death.
So I guess his can be classified as memorable.
