We all know the power of the Bright-Slap! It’s awesome might puts whiney brats in there place like a Chuck Norris Roundhouse Kick! But just imagine if Bright had bestowed his blessed backhand upon the cheecks of Char during the Gryps War…
I’ll refer you this thread in which Char was discussed in depth pertaining to his actions during CCA. Long story short:
Char: Wah-wah Lalah!
Amuro: Dude, I thought you were over this?!
Char: I WANT MY MOMMY! hurls asteroids at Earth
Amuro: DUDE WTF?! Newtype awesomeness activate!
Char: Not cool, dude!
So what if Bright had slapped Char. I think CCA would have been a whole lot different. Char would have instantly become a man and would have stepped up to the political plate, became leader of the Federation, wiped Neo Zeon off the map and rebuild the entire infrastructure of the Earth Sphere!
The Bright-Slap, shaping up spoiled children since 0079!
