One thing I love about the Gundam universe is that it is never short of memorable villains. Sometimes, the villains even outshine the protagonists. Because of this, the villains often leave behind an equally memorable mobile suit that is not entirely outdone by the titular Gundam. In this list, I will be counting down some of the most memorable and iconic mobile suits belonging to antagonists in the Gundam metaverse. While this isn't a list for comparing power, each mobile suit's abilities are taken into account, as their lasting impression is often owed to some powerful abilities.
Probably didn't see this coming, did you? The Tallgeese is a personal favorite of mine, and for reasons more than its sleek white design. The Tallgeese is what I would consider an underdog of sorts. In a series where the main characters are absolutely devastating everything, it's obviously hard to be a villain and stand out. The Tallgeese manages to do just that, however. Despite being several decades out of date, this white mobile suit challenges the Gundam pilots and matches their strength. It's particularly known for its speed; ordinary pilots are unable to survive its speed due to the massive amount of G-forces. Zechs Marquise pilots it to its full potential, zipping across the battlefield in a flash and leaving smoldering scraps. Like it or not, this is definitely one of the top antagonist mobile suits, and one of my personal favorites.
~~~~~~~~~~~greatest Gundam villain of all time. The reason I chose the Sazabi is because it represents a number of things. Just like the Nu Gundam did for Amuro, the Sazabi represents the peak of Char's abilities, as it was specifically designed to match his piloting prowess and newtype abilities. Though, more importantly, it marks the ending of an era. This is the last mobile suit Char Aznable pilots before disappearing with Amuro. It is as iconic for representing Char as it is for representing the end of the legendary Char-Amuro rivalry. For its ferocious power and lasting impact on the U.C. universe, it gets its place at the number one spot on this list.
