Char's Gundam Head Phobia
This is an old joke that goes around between Gundam Otakus:
Before fighting Gundam RX-78 Char Aznable was the unbeatable Zeon ace pilot "Red Comet". But ever since his first encounter and continuous defeats in the hands of Amuro Ray & RX-78. It's been known that Char ended up suffering from "Gundam-Head Phobia"
It was evident during the time of "Z Gundam". Char refused to get inside any of the Gundam MK2s and instead piloted the "non-Gundam-looking" Hyaku-Shiki. And even Zeta Gundam, which was built under Char's supervision, sported a head that looked nothing like all the previous Gundams!
Many suspected that if Char was around during "ZZ Gundam", Superior Gundam (which was constructed around the same time with a "non-Gundam-looking" head) would've been the chosen Mobile Suit in the main story instead of ZZ Gundam.
And that brings us to "Char's Counter Attack". In the beginning of the story, Char was doing so well against Amuro and the Federation because Amuro was piloting the ReGZ (another "non-Gundam-looking" Gundam). But as soon as Amuro got inside Nu Gundam (a very "Gundam-looking" Gundam), Char's Phobia took over and he ended up getting his ass kicked. Remember, Char is usually capable of dodging particle beams. But for some reason he couldn't even side step a simple punch from Nu Gundam. I guess "Gundam-Head Phobia" really did take a toll on him. Which is why he lost the war!
But then again, some may argue that Char Aznable didn't really suffer from "Gundam-Head Phobia". But instead he suffered from fearing the little vents (nostrils) on Gundam's face plate.
