Really, how did Heero survive the blast that destroyed even Gundanium?!
That isn't just tough cookies. That would kill an elephant in an armored
truck! Training does not give one skin of Gundanium.

Wufei belonged to the Long clan. As one can see from
Episode Zero, the Shenglong Gundam is designed for
melee combat of near-G-Gundam proportions (hey, a
martial artist made the mech, Master O).

Not to forget that since childhood, he's been part of
wars and has been fighting as an unnamed soldier.

The system she used to control the Virgos was a
specialized Zero system taken from the Epyon. She is
however a very skilled tactitian.

Still, we all have to admit that that kid is one tough
cookie (how on earth does one survive a self destruct
blast? -considering that when AC gundams
self-destruct, they obliterate all nearby mechs...).

And just what is wrong with that guy? doesn't he know
that "omae wa korosu" is NOT a good pick up line?
-then again, it DID work for Relena... ^_^
