        All right, let's apply your table to everyone's favourite (pinata), Kou
Uraki in his first Gundam fight.

        (Nina counts, right?)

        (Well, really debatable..=)

        Sub-Total: -30%

        Sub-Total: 150%

        In other words, Kou Uraki can never die -- and he didn't. In fact,
for every 5 fights he survives (and he always will), he will gain another
life. In other words, even if you kill one Kou Uraki off, chances are he
will come back to face you in another stolen Gundam.

I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection.
Excellence I can reach for; perfection is God's business.
