I've already honored some of the best characters in the Gundam universe, but one will find that there is actually a disproportionately higher number of annoying characters that clone themselves and spread out to every Gundam series. From whiny, emo boys, to shrieking psychotic bitches, Gundam has been host to countless intolerably annoying characters. This list is comprised of my opinions, and the opinions of the general fan populace. Get ready for some serious hating...
*Disclaimer: This list no longer reflects my views. It is very old and I do not plan on updating it. I don't actually hate Gundam Seed, and I never have. This list was mainly made for laughs. This is for people who are still stumbling upon this list and complaining.*
5. Kamille Bidan
He does go on to become a psychic badass, but that doesn't excuse the fact that he was a stubborn little prick during the first half of Zeta Gundam. He runs around screaming about how everybody makes fun of his girly name, and kicks the shit out of people for it. This is definitely rather machismo, but who the fuck does he think he is. He's openly defiant about every law that ordinary people don't seem to mind following, and repeatedly steals mobile suits to go out and fight when everybody seems to yell at him for it. And does he feel sorry? Noo, he just whines and screams like a child. Ugh, and he's a nail-biter too. Thank god he ends up awesome as he grows.
4. Relena Peacecraft
"Peace everybody! We must stop fighting and embrace peace!" she says, in the middle of a battle between two GIANT WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION. I get it, she's a pacifist. But god damn it, she doesn't change a god damn thing, and ends up meddling in the main characters' affairs WAY too often. Heero would have been way more successful with his "missions" if she wasn't always in his face about things that DO NOT CONCERN HER. There are countless giant robots all over the world, waging destructive war on land, air, and sea. But she seems content with yelling about peace all by her lonesome. If only she didn't have that smug attitude, thinking she was the only one that was thinking clearly, she might have been a little more tolerable. "But we must resolve this peacefu-"
Silence, Relena. Men are talking.
3. Nena Trinity
I'm no sexist, but why is it always the women...anyway...Nena Trinity was as annoying as she was psychotic. She starts her tenure in Gundam 00 by leaving a very bad taste in our mouths: by killing a whole bunch of innocent people. This immediately got her no love at all and for the rest of her presence in the story. Eventually, she's just a meddlesome little brat that serves to get on everyone's nerves, and is UNFORTUNATELY the longest lasting Throne pilot. Just like most of the other characters on this list, Nena is impulsive, immature, and disgustingly sadistic in her juvenile rage. She's really just the worst of the worst breed. And just like a lot of the other impulsive characters to come, she gets what she had coming...

1. The Cast of Gundam SEED
I actually considered picking people out of this cast of assholes, but I just couldn't without making this whole list dedicated to Gundam Seed. So, here they are, clumped up into one big clusterfuck. The cast of Gundam Seed was without a doubt the biggest collection of whiny anime archetypes in the history of Gundam. Man, where do I even start...
First and foremost, is protagonist Kira Yamato. He is essentially a clone of Amuro Ray, but doesn't end up nearly as badass and whines a hell of a lot more, amazingly enough. This was the male version of Relena Peacecraft. He is reluctantly taken aboard the Archangel, and takes the position of the "WHY ARE YOU FIGHTING?! PLEASE STOP FIGHTING! STOP! AAAGH!!" douchebag. It's a war, get a grip and shut the fuck up.
Next we have the infamous Flay, a favorite among Gundam fans...to HATE. Flay isn't a classic whiner; she's notorious for being a psychotic bitch. She has an almost racist fear of Coordinators, and spouts putrid hate towards them like an angry Christian girl in an evolutionary biology class. She even manipulated and HAD SEX with Kira to make him do her bidding. Talk about crazy whores. Her death was very shocking and sudden, but it only took a few seconds for most fans to realize that...she kind of had it coming.
And of course, we have Seed Destiny's protagonist, Shinn Asuka. I can honestly say, I prefer Kira to this thunder-cunt. Shinn is basically Kira, but with a dash of irrational, impulsive insanity. He's visibly shaken up by the death of his family, and hates absolutely everyone for it. His unstable emotions make him a really weak protagonist, and we actually see the developers cop out and replace him with Kira and Athrun at the mid-way point of the series. How amazing is that? Even the developers thought he was so annoying, that they had to bring back their former heroes to kick his ass. Nobody disagreed with this decision, and he really does end up getting his ass kicked in the final battle. That's what happens when you are an impulsive little prick, Shinn.
