 Actually, someone mentioned this point of comparison a
 few months ago. "If it were Gundam, Elly would be a
 Newtype". I've thought about this and realized that
 Xenogears mecha (and characters) may have been based
 on other sources, particularly Gundam. Here are the
 analogies I've noticed;

Fei = a Gundam Fighter/Domon
Elly = a Newtype
Aerods = Funnels/Fin Funnels
Vierge = Nobel Gundam/R-3
Graf = Master Asia/Touhou Fuhai
Xenogears = G Gundam or Psybuster
Renmazuo = Worker-type mecha from Xabungle
Bart = Quatre
Brigandier = Rashidi's MS (look at the feather)
Bart's troops' Gears = Quatre's troops' MS
Rico = Blanka
Seibzen = Giant Robo
Elementals' robot (can't remember the name) = Golion V/
 Voltron Lions

 Are there more?
