Well, after a few nights of work, I present to you all the Gundam Death
Calculation Chart. What it does is calculate the relative percentage chance
of a Gundam character dying...it's intended to be semi-humorous, but what's
strange is that is DOES WORK! Don't believe me? Try it for yourself. ^_^
(And appreciate it - I joined this ML mainly to post the damn thing. ^_^

Here we go, then :

(All characters start with a basic zero percent chance to die.)

---

Factors contributing to Death :

Saying "Hayai!" ("Fast") in a fight = 5% Telling a loved one that they will do something together once the battle is over = 20% Going to battle in a Zaku = 10% Going to battle in a Jim = 10% Going to battle in a Leo or Aries = 10% Going up against a Gundam = 10% Going up against an ace pilot (if you are not an ace pilot or main character yourself) = 15% Opponent is a Newtype = 15% You are lower in rank than a Ensign = 10% Saying "Gu...Gundam!" = 10% If you are in Enhanced Human = 20% Fall in love with the enemy = 10% Using an outdated mecha = 10% Betray your side = 15% You are the last remaining defender of a location = 15% Taking part in a colony drop = 10% Do what your commander tells you not to = 10% If you are female and are protecting someone = 20% Try to violate the Antartic Treaty = 15% Tell your men to leave ahead of him/her = 20% Pilot Psycho Gundam = 15% Be a lousy pilot = 10% Begins to think that he is getting too old = 10% Are a Jion ace = 20% Have a loved one waiting for your return = 5% Disregard wounds to go into battle = 10% Hold a hostage = 10% Say that you will gladly lay down your life for someone = 10% Have very loyal subordinates = 10% Be a loyal subordinate = 10% Swear not to retreat and do not retreat = 10% Be a Zabi = 20% Member of Delaz Fleet = 20% Member of OZ = 15% Pilot an extremely large mech = 10%

Factors preventing Death :

Are an ace = 20% Are a main character (only counts for people that have lots of involvement with the plot) = 15% Below the age of 14 = 30% Lead an army = 20% Are in a prototype mecha = 20% Have a name = 10% Wear a mask = 20% Jump into a mecha without permission = 20% Go into battle without wearing a normal suit = 20% Are a hostage = 10% Throw away your weapon in favor of a beam saber in combat = 10% Protect kids = 10% Appear in more than one Gundam series = 10% Fall unconscious = 10% Have low self-confidence = 10% Are a Newtype = 10% Are a powerful Newtype = 20% Do not know why you fight = 10% Use unorthodox tactics in combat = 15% Member of 8th MS Team = 40% White Base crew = 20% Are a Gundam pilot = 15% Are experienced in Gundam mechanics = 5% Have a mecha that moves damn fast = 10% Have a Japanese name = 10% Member of Blue Destiny team = 15% Have ambiguous/negative relationship with father = 10%

BTW, in case you're wondering, an average Jion soldier in a Zaku, according to the chart, has absolutely no chance of returning alive. ^_^

As for the other characters, I'll leave them for you to work out...
