Of course there will be similar things as an original/previous series, but SEED Destiny pretty much blatantly copies stuff with the ZAKU Warrior, GOUF Ignited, DOM Trooper, and such right down to general names, appearances, functions, weapons, etc. To a lesser extent, the Akatsuki with the Hyaku Shiki + Strike/Providence, the Murasame with the Zeta, the Destroy Gundam with the Big Zam + Psyco Gundam, and so on. And then ending it by pretty much copy/pasting the Freedom, Justice, and Providence, but with slightly different coloring and tweaks here and there and it just gives off a vibe of laziness that I just can't shake.

Not like how SEED with the GINN, CGUE, GuAIZ, and other MS were obviously influenced by the Zaku II and other UC-era MS, but at least they kept their own original identity that set them apart. That's what made their designs more appealing to me.
