I had gotten into a erm…“argument” with a gundam fan friend of mine as to who was the best char clone, so I thought id pose to my fellow Gundam Forum followers this simple question:
Who is the best Char clone, and who is the worst Char clone? (For this purpose Full Frontal counts as a Char Clone, so name him if you want!)
For me id go with
Best Char Clone: Harry Ord - Turn A Gundam
Though technically a Quattro clone, Harry Ord became the Char clone for Turn A and he was awesome from start to finish always acting as an advisor and complete loyalist to queen dianna and one of the few in the series who can see through Dianna and Kielhiems switches, he would always do what is best not only for Dianna but for Kielhiem as well and for that I rate him an A+ Char clone. Plus that gold Sumo is a clear call back to the Hyaku Shiki.
Worst Char Clone: Zeheart Gallet - Gundam AGE
Where do I begin with this guy, I suppose I should say I really did not see it coming that he was going to be our local Char clone as he didn’t get his visor? thing until a few episodes into AGE arc 2 and even then I felt like maybe its just a coincidence that it looks like Full Frontals mask but that was quickly thrown aside at the sight of his custom red unit. For the beginning part of AGE arc 2 he was OK as a char clone, if not a bit arrogant, he reminded me of Char during Zeta Gundam caring about the people he went into battle with and knowing the names of those who had died. Its really not until AGE arc 3 where things start to fall apart for him. In this arc he becoming little more than a puppet to ezlkant and questions nothing…NOTHING about his plan, even after ezlkant tells him “Hey bro, theres no place in my new world order for your soldiers” and Zeheart just goes along with it, despite just a few episodes prior telling Fran all about how important average soldiers are, and if there is anything Char is not it is a puppet to whomever the seasons bad guy is and for NO REASON either! It is never explained WHY Zeheart decides to follow ezlkant after learning his plan which is completely against everything he stands for! I had hoped that he was going to turn sides once he learned that plan because it is so completely against everything he stands for, but alas “There are a billion things that are, but a million billion things that could have been.” - The Doctor
And there stands my votes for best and worst char clones
