So I’ve been watching Gundam 00 and I’ve gotten to the part with the trinity siblings. Now I ended up learning online just how they are actually villains and that Nena is pretty much a pure evil killer.
That’s really gotten me thinking about the villain characters in Gundam who seem to have no redeeming qualities and seem to only want to kill and destroy everything and everyone. I wonder what is to be done with those characters to stop them from causing more harm, besides having them eventually be killed by either the heroes of another villain. I figured that’s really the only thing that can be done with characters that only bring harm and destruction.
The thing is I really like it when villains get redeemed, such as with characters who are good but just on the wrong side. But there’s a point I feel when someone is just too evil to be left alive so they have to be removed. But I really wonder if killing them is the only answer to stopping the horror characters like Nena bringing destruction to the world of the Gundam show?
Because oddly enough in Super Robot Wars V (A huge crossover mecha game that happens to feature a lot of Gundam series) you can actually recruit some of the Gundam villains like Jerid and Yazan from Zeta Gunadam, as well Full Frontal from Gundam Unicorn. The main point is that I’m pretty sure Yazan would fit into the evil psychopath category, yet you can have him join the heroes and have him hang out with them and eventually help save the world. So this leaves me really confused and conflicted about this.
So I’m wondering if any of you have some answers to my feelings about pure evil characters and if killing them is the only way to protect the world or if perhaps there’s a better less murderous way to stop them from doing more evil?
