Well, the basic gundam desgin is technically samurai, but there have been
other cultures (and let's not get into G Gundam please). The Hydra Gundam
from G-unit, for example, is a mixe betweena Zeong, a Gelgoog and a
generic Hindu Deity, what with it having four faces and four arms.

I am NOT a starving writer.
