Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, known in Japan as New Mobile Report Gundam W1 (also known as 新機動戦記ガンダムW shin kidō senki gandamu uingu in Japanese), is a televised anime series, which ran for forty-nine episodes beginning in 1995. Initially directed by Masashi Ikeda and written by Katsuyuki Sumizawa (Ronin Warriors), the series was loosely based on the original 1979 Gundam series, Mobile Suit Gundam, created by Yoshiyuki Tomino and Hajime Yatate.

Heero Yuy[edit]

  • I'll kill you. [Japanese: Omae o korosu. Toonami Edited Dub: I will destroy you.]
  • Then I'll give you just one piece of advice... it hurts like hell.
  • If the whole world has gone crazy, then I'll believe in myself and keep on fighting. Quatre... I will kill you.
  • The people who try to kill me, and the people who fight against me, are my enemies.
    • Talking to himself, Episode 26: The Eternal Flame of the Shooting Stars
  • You're going to self-destruct? That's not a bad plan either...
    • Episode 31: The Glass Kingdom
  • I can't stand the weak. They're always nervous about when they might be next attacked. They can't trust anybody and they never have an opinion of their own. I can't stand such people! Zechs, nobody is strong. All of humanity is weak. And that includes us as well.
    • To Zechs, Episode 49: The Final Victor
  • I will...I will... I will survive!
    • Episode 49: The Final Victor
  • I'm not a pacifist. [citation needed]
  • [To Trowa] I said this before. The only way to live a good life is to act on your emotions.
  • Mission Accepted. (JPN: ninmu ryoukai 任務 了解)
    • Said numerous times over the course of the series
  • Mission Complete. (JPN: ninmu kanryou 任務 完了)
    • Said numerous times over the course of the series
  • How many more times must I kill that girl and her dog? Zero will not tell me anything. Tell me, Wufei!

  • Heero's speech to his classmates at his new school in the colonies
    • Episode 18: Tallgeese Destroyed
Earth, the planet in the solar system that miraculously gave birth to life. In the year After Colony 195, with the development of the colonies people now live in new surroundings, thanks to plentiful natural resources and cultivated technological abilities. However, this new world is nothing but an imitation of humankind's motherland the Earth. But why were the colonies made in the first place? I hear the main purpose was technological development to improve the lives of human kind on Earth. Did human kind start asking too much from this imitation world? The self-sustained way of life is more stable than life on Earth especially since it lacks the risk of natural disasters.
It appeared that this unlimited growth was guaranteeing the eternal existence of human kind. Perhaps there was an age where people dreamed of the possibilities in the outer space, where they could start from scratch. However, it's unthinkable that the colonies or that humankind will ever forget the Earth.
What did technological development in the colonies bring to the Earth? The kind of technology the Earth wants most: military power. Destruction is part of human nature that can never be gotten rid of, and now the colonies are developing a militaristic disposition. The colonies cannot forget the Earth.
The Earth has great beauty. The animals known as humans have acquired such strength that they even think about controlling this planet for themselves. From the point of view of a planet's life, the life of a living thing lasts no more than an instant. But in the end, it is only themselves that humans can think of. Nothing changes. The time spent by humans in outer space has been a complete waste. The ideal is just a dream.
This false pacifism. This false living space. Outer space is nothing but a breeding ground for even more battles in the future. Wars throughout history have claimed many lives. Although human kind has never been able to forget the sorrow that has been caused by the wars, they have not stopped fighting. The blood and tears they shed in battle are merely ceremonial. One can't speak of history without referring to the wars in each era as important events. I'm sure the pale pep talks of fighting for peace have been repeated numerous times in the past. The colonies say they need armaments to maintain peace. It's no different from on Earth. The colonies think they have joined the big boys. I guess they believe that the bloodshed would lead to higher morale [to further unite the colonies.]
So why do people fight anyway? Perhaps the meaning of human existence lies within their will to fight. People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle. And it's also a fact that the ones who are actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

Zechs Merquise[edit]

  • Certain conditions must be met for total peace. First, all weapons must be eliminated. And second... the desire to fight must be erased from people's minds!

  • I'll go where ever my mind takes me.
  • With a fancy gun that has long forgotten the meaning of battle, I would feel no emotion, even if I were to shoot an enemy right through the heart.
  • From a historical point of view, warriors who have lost what they were protecting, and further betrayed by those they were protecting, are losers.
  • Winners of a battle will eventually decline in power and become losers, and those losers will cultivate a new leader.

    • Episode 39: Trowa's Return to the Battlefield
  • The God of Death? Sounds better than the hero of a massacre.
  • Oh man, Quatre loves to blame himself for everything if you let him. Sooner or later, he'll start saying that it's because of his lack of effort that there's no air in space.
  • "Let's only take the weapons, and war itself, along with us to hell!"
  • Stop making me repeat myself. It's bad for my health!

Others[edit]

  • It's a Gundam!(JPN: Gandamu desu!)
    • Catchphrase of the Franchise in general.
  • Never forget how beautiful the earth looks from afar.
    • Vice Foreign Minister Darlian, Episode 5: Relena's Secret
  • All wars lead directly to peace. Wars are started by humans and end with humans so we chose to target only the dangerous.
    • Doctor J, Relena's Secret
  • Surrender? I think you've misunderstood something. This is no surrender. This is an execution!
    • Alex, Episode 13: Catherine's Tears
  • People who want to die, hurry up and die. You're wasting air.
  • No one likes an obstinate old man!

    • Mr. Winner, Episode 21: Grief Stricken Quatre
  • I'm running away. I will not fight.
    • Mr. Winner, Episode 21: Grief Stricken Quatre
  • That’s ludicrous. You’re suggesting the use of a Gundam as a tool for a massacre? This is war! It is no big deal sacrificing the general public. Got it? Now re-train him at once. The humane feeling of kindness is unnecessary for our weapon. You’re right there, but do you really believe Heero Yuy would be pleased if we buried his humanity?
  • After Colony 197, peace has returned to the people. And from this point on in history, weapons called mobile suits, including the Gundams, were never seen again.
  • History is just like an endless waltz: the first three beats of War, Peace and Revolution continue on forever. However, history will change upon the day of my coronation. The instant this year comes to an end, I will be on top of the Earth Sphere and the dawn of a new age will arrive. I will rule the world.

Dialogue[edit]

Trieze: Then let me ask you, who's your enemy? Is it me? Or OZ? Or is it the Romefeller Foundation? Or is it your faraway home, the colonies that betrayed you?
Heero: Those who stand before me with the intention of killing me. They are my enemies.
Trieze: In that case, your battles will never end. Since your enemy is destiny itself.

Heero: You think you've created a god? (Referring to Epyon)
Trieze: There is nothing more beautiful than a warrior with no distractions. One could say he is the closest thing to god.


Heero: The more you keep fighting...the more sacrifices for peace become a waste! You must have realized that! The war we fought is over!
Wu-fei: So we don't need warriors? Do soldiers who know nothing but battle get tossed aside?!
Heero: Don't you get it?! Soldiers fight to attain a sense of peace! Why don't you want to believe in the world we live in!
Wu-fei: I'm acting for the people who were used as weapons, I'm fighting for all those soldiers including you!
Heero: Wu-fei...
Wu-fei: You and I are fighting like this...Don't you feel fulfilled as I do when you're fighting? You and I are the same! we can only acknowledge our existence on the battlefield!
Heero: Just Remember Wu-fei Treize is dead! You've already defeated him!
Wu-fei: NO! I still continue to fight him, even now!

Wu-fei: I don't Consent Relena Peacecraft's ways. Her belief that peace comes from discarding weapons and confining soldiers is wrong!
Heero: So that's why you're allowing Mariemaia's Autocracy?!
Wu-fei: That's where the souls of soldiers are congregated!
Heero: That may be Okay for now. But Mariemaia will only end up repeating history! Humanity will be a witness to that history full of miserable wars. Unless we stop this process now...more soldiers like ourselves will be necessary. If that happens...a history of tragedy will keep repeating itself. Tell me Wu-fei...How much more lives must we sacrifice...How many more times must I Kill that girl and her dog?! Zero won't tell me anything...Tell me Wu-fei!
