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 :

```---
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Using an outdated mecha = 10%
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%
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%

Be a loyal subordinate = 10%
Swear not to retreat and do not retreat = 10%

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%
Are in a prototype mecha = 20%
Have a name = 10%
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%

Member of 8th MS Team = 40%

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...
