View Full Version : Give them a Theme song.

Give a character from Gundam a Theme song, pretty basic, it can be anything as long as it isn't from Gundam. Figured it'd be funny to see what fitting (or non fitting) themes we get for Characters, also a way to pass the time.

Quattro Era-Char: I wear my Sunglasses at Night-Corey Hart.

This looks fun. I have three for now:

1) Katz (Zeta era) and Sarah: #1 Crush (by Garbage).

2) Haman Karn: The World is Not Enough (also by Garbage).

3) Kamile and Four (or most Gundam couples for that matter): Love is a Battlefield (by Pat Benatar).

- - - Updated - - -

Just to be a jerk:

4) The cast of Gundam SEED/Destiny (but especially Kira and Cagalli): cry me a river (by Justin timberlake). *

5) Fa Yuiry: Hit me baby one more time (by Britney). *

*For the record, unlike my first three contributions, these two are just based on the songs' titles, since I don't actually know the lyrics to them (I don't listen to that kind of music, I just remembered the titles and found them appropriate).

- - - Updated - - -

One final entry for the night:

7) Yoshiyuki Tomino (Kill 'em All days)/entire Gundam franchise: I Hate Love (by Garbage).

Seriously, the lyrics and title are perfect for this one. Gundam (especially UC) absolutely hates romance. If characters get romantically involved, chances are at least one of them will die, if not both of them.

I thought of a bunch of these during my 3 months away from the forums. Here goes some of the ones I can think of from the top of my head.

Treize Khushrenda - Cult of Personality (Living Colour), fits so well

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FKv5QLa8q8

Ali al-Saachez - Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (AC/DC), I don't know how cheap his dirty deeds are, but the lyrics fit well

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOgyHubsckM

The Shuffle Aliance of G-Gundam, Gundam Meisters of the Ptolemy, Gundam Boys of Wing, basically any Gundam team where you got actual friendships - With A Little Help From My Friends (The Beatles), Title says it all

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vf7MrwldawY

Basically anyone in the Gundam world that has a glorious, sacrificial death - Blaze of Glory (Bon Jovi), the chorus and end verse fit so well for any death scene of this nature

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LD2P6coHGhc

Lockon Stratos 1.0 aka Neil - When I'm Gone (3 Doors Gone), one of the deaths in the Gundam universe that really hit me hard. LOCKON!!!!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAY7Lz6t6gU

The overall tone of Gundam 00, the direction humanity went from the start of Season 1 to the end of the movie - Winds of Change (the Scorpions)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohOtDA3dTAA


Will post more when I can think of them, its kinda late for me :)

Cult of Personality is a good one for allot of Gun dam villains, CCA Char, Haman, Scirocco, Trieze as you said fits really well too.

Kamille-I want to Break Free-Queen: I feel the Lyrics fit him pretty well.

Char and Amuro (As a whole)-Carry on my Wayward Son-Kansas: Again I feel it fits both of them quite well.

Banahger When he said Get the hell out of my way: Move Bitch-Ludacris

Scirocco-Don't you want me-The Human Leauge

Last two are jokes...though Scirocco's kind of fits everytime he's swooning someone.

Anyways next post of mine is gonna be AU only.

Zeta-G
May 8, 2014, 11:25 AM
Goddamn Kansas. Why'd you have to remind me of them?

Also, Move Bitch for that Banagher and Marida scene made me laugh out loud, so thanks for that. You are forgiven for bringing up Kansas. ;)

I dont mean to get off topic but i feel as if i must address this. @ Zeta G: I have to disagree with you on this statement...both me, my brother, and the following characters below...Tomino Yes, ENITIRE Gundam Franchise (UC in general)...not so much

Shiro and Aina

Garrod and Tifa

Domon and Rain

Need i Say more? lol

On the romantic topic, the one thing that miffed me and my brother Ghost is that we thought originally that Kira was the First Gundam Character to...well you know...in a series. But then me and my brother went back and found out about Shiro getting Aina Pregnant...and me and my brother litterally played "HALLELUJAH!"* (safteysuit cover) when we had that eureka moment as we screamed with joy "THE GUNDAM UNIVERSE IS SAVED!!!"


*particularly near the end lol

Zeta-G
May 8, 2014, 12:01 PM
SEED could be pretty vicious, AGE and 00 could too. The 90's AU's are an exception to the norm (as they tend to be in general). Also Shiro lost a leg and killed his lover's brother and father/uncle figure.

Wing:
Une/Treize
Quatre/his half sister (I'm joking, I think)
Wufei/his wife (Episode Zero)

SEED:
Kira/Flay
Miriellia/Tolle
Andrew/Aiisha
Murrue/Mu (retconned later but still, could be a clone for all we know, destiny certainly doesn't explain it)

Destiny:
Shinn/Stella
Athrun/Meer (one way infatuation, but same effect)
Durandal/Talia (a double death)

00:
Lishdie (Sp?)/Chris (double)
Tieria/Lockon 1 (I kid, mostly)
Ribbons/Allejandro (double, plus one basically kills the other)
Lockon 2/Anew
Saji/Louise/The wedding (she doesn't die, but her whole family does and she loses an arm)
Marina/Setsuna (so he's not technically dead, but he's a cyborg or some crap and she's old and blind by the time they reunite)

AGE:
Flit/Yurin
Millais/Woolf
Olbright/mechanic girl (Remi, I think; also Olbright gets his like 20 years later when he's still moping over her)
Romary/Asem (not dead, but believed to be dead for 13 years)
Kio/Martian girl
Natora/Seric (he orders her to kill him for the sake of the mission)
Zeheart/Fram

I'm probably missing at least one somewhere in there, but you get my point.

Kenico
May 8, 2014, 12:14 PM
Hey...The Lovers didnt die and thats all that matters...as for SEED...the ONLY thing i liked about Destiny is that Kira got his ass handed to him and Mu was reunited with Ramius (yes it was annoying the way it was done but honestly thats the only reason why i watch it lol)

Zeta-G
May 8, 2014, 12:43 PM
Check my post again. I was adding examples when you replied.

- - - Updated - - -

I knew I forgot at least one:

Cagalli/Yuna (arranged but it counts, she gave up Athrun for him. Stupid twit).

May 8, 2014, 1:46 PM

Zeta-G
May 8, 2014, 1:51 PM
Like I said before the song fits the Gundam franchise as a whole. Tomino in particular, but it does work for the franchise as a whole.

Also, I'd like to add for Quattro/Kamille and Woolf/Asem: I'll make a man out of you (from Disney's Mulan). :)

Zeon's RedComet
May 8, 2014, 3:20 PM
Also Bright/Amuro fits that as well.

Zeta-G
May 8, 2014, 3:43 PM
You're right. I thought of some more Disney/Gundam pairings:

Sei/China: Kiss the Girl (from The Little Mermaid).
Asem: Go the Distance (from Hercules).

May 8, 2014, 3:51 PM
I just don't like them. Probably has something to do with me being forced to listen to Wayward son way too many times when I was younger. Damn radio stations. Even the goddamn Internet radio station services like iTunes and Pandora try to shove it down my throat, despite me explicity telling them to not play it.

More Disney (admittedly these a bit more of a stretch but they still work, I think):

Setsuna/Marina: A whole new World (from Aladdin)
Mineva (Audrey phase): Let it Go (from Frozen)

Now a couple of pairings between my favorite Gundam series and my favorite Disney movie:

Emma/Henken: Beauty and the Beast
Kamille/Fa: Something There

- - - Updated - - -

Reccoa: Belle (Reprise)

Okay, I think I'm done for now.

- - - Updated - - -

It's a bit obvious, but I couldn't resist:

Char (MSG era) or Scirocco: Smooth Criminal (by Michael Jackson).

- - - Updated - - -

One more Disney/Gundam mix:

Relena/Marina/pickyourpeacenik: In Harmony (The Little Mermaid The Animated Series*).

*Yes, I realize I just set myself up to be compared to a little girl from the early 90's. Big deal. ;)

Brain Dead Kamile-Iron Man: Black Sabbath, No really listen to the lyrics, fits perfectly.

- - - Updated - - -

Full Frontal's & Bahanger's Excellent Adventure (The time illousion Mind f*** scene): Zager and Evans The Year 2525 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yesyhQkYrQM

Basically the majority of the Song, is FF showing Banahger all the bad s***, and at the end where it gets back to 2525 it's Banahger argueing about hope.

May 28, 2014, 2:35 PM

Damn it you took the love is battlefield one.

IMO it fits Shiro and Aina more than Kamile and Four but it is a good one.

Zeta-G
June 5, 2014, 12:20 AM
I did say that it fit others too. I just gave Kamille/Four as the example because I'm a Zeta fanboy. Really it can be used for most Gundam couples from opposing factions.

A pair of sappy songs:

-Fa and Kamille (end of Zeta-ZZ): Stand by Me by Ben E. King

-Shinn and Mayu (also works for Athrun and Nicol): Cryin' for Me by Toby Keith


And now it's time for some Bad Religion:

-Zeon: Requiem for Dissent

-Char: Before You Die

-Coordinators (in a world of Naturals): Social Suicide

-The Earth Federation: Boot Stamping on a Human Face Forever

I have some more from pretty much every major genre:

-Char & Lalah: Cemetery Gates by Pantera.
-Reccoa (after meeting Scirocco): I Wanna Be Bad by Willa Ford.
-Bernie (and UC in general): The Good Die Young by Scorpions & Tarja.
-Kamille fighting with the Titans: F*** the Police by N.W.A.
-Flay: Devil in Disguise by Elvis Presley.
-Kira: Girl of My Best Friend by Elvis Presley.
-The La Vie en Rose: La Vie en Rose (I prefer the jazzy cover by Sophie Milman, but the pop original is by Edith Piaf).
-Scirocco: Entropy Reigns by Kelley Polar.
-Rinko, Sumaragi, and the 00 Gundam: Thong Song by Sisqo.
-Kirara: Fame by Irene Cara.
-Ricardo Fellini (imagine him singing this song to women): Show Them To Me by Rodney Carrington.

July 10, 2014, 4:30 PM
The F*** the Police one made me legit LOL.

Anyways, also for Kamile, when his mom dies, Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkle, mainly just the opening line, if it played like in the backround, just that part as she died, it'd have been the best moment in anime.

I already made the joke just now so I might as well...
Merciless Solider for Mikazuki Augus because he is the most dangerous.

Who are you? Caught in the frozen sky
Who are you? No one can answer that
A callous soldier has alighted
Upon a tiring battle in unfamiliar territory

Nobody knows all the memories he's left behind
Like how nobody knows the halation of the wind
Who are you that awakens
From within cold darkness which swallows all?

Can't stop! He's just a soldier
Can't stop! That's right, once he realises that
There will be no tomorrow for us
Can't stop! He's just a soldier
Can't stop! He's in a never ending war game
Where the battle begins along the horizon

Where are you? Always walking your own path
Where are you? Nothing more than a blue flame
The last thing seen by us
Will be your profile, stripped of emotion

Can't stop! He's just a soldier
Can't stop! Whenever he turns around
It's clear that there's no hope for the future
Can't stop! He's just a soldier
Can't stop! The endless war game
Will begin along the horizon again today

Can't stop! He's just a soldier
Can't stop! That's right, once he realises that
There will be no tomorrow for us
Can't stop! He's just a soldier
Can't stop! He's in a never ending war game
Where the battle begins along the horizon

Can't stop! He's just a soldier
Can't stop! Whenever he turns around
It's clear that there was never going to be any future for him
Can't stop! He's just a soldier
Can't stop! That's right, once he realises that
There will be no tomorrow for us

Oh Comely by Neutral Milk Hotel for Char Aznable after the death of Lalah Sune.

I know this is gonna seem like a stretch, but hear me out. Go over these lines with Char as the narrator/singer in you head.

"But oh comely
It isn't as pretty as you'd like to guess
In your memory you're
Drunk on your awe to me
It doesn't mean anything at all"

and

"Your father made fetuses with flesh licking ladies
While you and your mother were asleep in the trailer park"

Basically could describe Lalah's rather unpleasent background, Char taking her in, and their relationship.

"Of some pretty bright and bubbly
Friend you could need to say comforting things in your ear

But oh comely
There isn't such one friend that you could find
Here standing next to me only my enemy
I'll crush him with everything I own"

Is Char taking about Amuro.

"I know they buried her body with others" and "I wished I could save her in some sort of time machine" implied the girl he's talking about is dead, like Lalah.

So yeah, I think it fits.

If there was ever an anime adaptation of Outer Gundam, I'd really hope this would be the theme song. And so I'd also choose this as the theme for the character of the Zephyr Gundam.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcGYEXJqun8

The reason for this particular song is that it is one of the first two songs composed entirely by an AI, which fits for a manga about an AI controlled mobile suit. And I just like that one than the beatles inspired, "Daddy's Car".

edit: Screw it, Daddy's Car as the ending theme.
