As I stated before many times, I know Zeon Daikun was peaceful but the
assassination of Zeon Daikun made Char the man he is, besides I have always
admired the complexity of most Villians in Gundam, they're choice to be "evil"
always has a reason from Char to Master Asia. But Back to the Gato thing, I
feel he is less deserving to be a main villian, he believed in Zeon Philosophy
so much that he felt Zeon Glory would save him, like the Boxers of in China
who believe a foriegners bullet wouldn't hurt them but died from bullet wounds
and the Kamakaze's of Japan who Rammed thier planes into ships for thier
country. Honorable, yes but what does Honor provide when your dead?
