Gundam Evolution is a 6v6 free-to-play hero shooter that faithful fans of the 42+ year-old Mobile Suit Gundam IP should absolutely adore. It’s an objective-based PvP game where players are given control of iconic Gundam or Mobile Suits from across the over 50 different series.

Now, Gundam Evolution does already have 17 different characters to choose from. But, there are still so many potential fan favorites (and even brand-new ones like Gundam Aerial) that have yet to make it into the game.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

10/10 AMX-004 Qubeley: Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam

Let’s start things off with a bit of a unique inclusion, the AMX-004 Quebely from the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam series. This suit is most notably used by Haman Karn, one of the major antagonists of this series as well as Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ. Now, as a Zeon-built playable suit in Gundam Evolution, the Qubeley is very visually distinct from all the other characters currently.

Plus, because of the Funnel container that it has on its back, the Qubeley could be a unique mix of both melee and range (though there are already enough powerful melee units between Barbatos and Zaku). It would use the Beam Saber up close with the Funnels as a ranged option and potentially even a Funnel “deploy zone” where it could set them up to defend an area similar to Methuss’ Gun Turret or Sazabi’s very own Funnels G-Maneuver.

9/10 GF13-017NJII God Gundam: Mobile Fighter G Gundam

By far one of the more highly requested Mobile Fighters to be added into Evolution, the GF13-017NJII aka the “God Gundam” is the next evolution of the Shining Gundam. It’s the primary Gundam used in Mobile Fighter G Gundam, and it’s one of the most overpowered suits across the entire franchise.

And, because it’s been seen fighting in multiple shows, games, and comics, there are tons of techniques they could use for its moveset. The only thing that would be guaranteed is that it would use God Finger into Heat End for its G-Maneuver as a command-grab instant kill.

8/10 GF13-017NJ Shining Gundam: Mobile Fighter G Gundam

Technically a lesser version of the God Gundam above, the GF13-017NJ or Shining Gundam from Mobile Fighter G Gundam is assuredly more iconic. Though, if they added God Gundam first, there’d really be no reason to add Shining Gundam in as well and vice versa.

That said, Shining Gundam would have some more unique mechanics they could mess with for its movesets, such as giving it a Mode-change system in which Shining Gundam would switch between its different powered-up forms starting at Normal then going to Battle, then Super, before finally ending at True Super.

7/10 MA-08 Big Zam: Mobile Suit Gundam

This next idea is absolutely the one that’s suggested the most as a “joke”, but Big Zam would be a fascinating character to add. Big Zam is one of the most iconic Mobile Armor the franchise has ever created, and it originated way back in the first Mobile Suit Gundam anime. This thing is 60-meters tall, weighs over 1000 tons, and has a gigantic Mega-Particle Gun in its center that’s capable of blasting through just about anything. Now, as a character, Big Zam is pretty unrealistic.

The only way it could really work is if they put it in a mode where players capture objectives to push their own gigantic mech in the background of the stage forward to fight the other team’s giant mech, and one side would be Big Zam.

6/10 RB-79 Ball: Mobile Suit Gundam

Speaking of the original Mobile Suit Gundam series, another interesting inclusion they could add from it is the RB-79 Ball pods that are essentially Space Pods refitted into makeshift mobile armors. To put it bluntly, the RB-79s could be another type of Support character. It could work as a low Capital-costing character that’s meant to be a highly-mobile, very squishy, and low-damage with only a Recoil Cannon to protect itself with.

But, in exchange, they could use their construction-based function to repair other players’ suits, forcing the little Haro healing stations (which people aren’t using nearly enough) to respawn faster, and so on. And, if Bandai Namco wanted to get really silly, they could even use the B Gundam introduced in Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam: Skull Heart and have it charge forward using its X-78-2 Gundam homage faceplate for its G-Maneuver.

5/10 XXXG-01H Gundam Heavyarms: Mobile Suit Gundam Wing

The XXXG-01H Heavyarms is another one of the more commonly requested character additions for Gundam Evolution, and it’s obvious why. This thing is a one-mech-army when it comes to firepower, as it’s packed full of Gatling Guns, Missile Launchers, Beam Weapons, and even a Vulcan Gun stored in the head.

Obviously, it would use its Beam Gatling as the primary. And, for the G-Maneuver, Namco could either have the mech self-destruct similar to DVA in Overwatch 2 (its main competitor) or they could have it unleash all of its firepower at once in one gigantic barrage of destruction. This would turn the Heavyarms into the perfect mech for attacking a Capture Point, which is an objective of the game that the current player base seems to have totally forgotten about.

4/10 MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam: Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam

Another iconic Gundam from a surprisingly dark protagonist, the Zeta Gundam from Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam is another one that deserves to be in Evolution. As Kamille Bidan is constantly compared to Amuro Ray, the pilot of the original Gundam, it only makes sense that his MSZ-006 is playable as well.

But, unlike the original Gundam that typically fights from a range with its Beam Rifle and Shield, the Zeta Gundam could use its Grenade Launchers and Waverider transformation to deal AoE damage and plow through enemies, separating the two as very different characters mechanically. As one of the beta All-Rounders in the franchise, the Zeta Gundam would make for a great baseline addition to the game.

3/10 Concept-X 6-1-2 Turn X: Turn-A Gundam

While the main “hero” Gundam from the Turn A Gundam series, the White Doll Gundam, is already in the game, what about the “villain” Gundam? Well, that would be the Turn-X Gundam, piloted by Gym Ghingham, and it would make a fantastic addition to the game.

Not only is the Turn X Gundam one of the more visually distinct Gundams to add to the roster, but it also has some new gimmicks as well. For one, the Turn X could use the fact that it can separate into 10 different parts as an actual mechanic, either as the Mega Particle Cannon, its All-Range Attack, or even the I-Field Barrier that could stun enemies. Additionally, it could also be a chance for Bandai to show the Moonlight Butterfly G-Maneuver in a whole new way.

2/10 GF13-066NO Nether Gundam: Mobile Fighter G Gundam

And for the last joke inclusion, let’s talk about the GF13-066NO otherwise known as the Nether Gundam. This Mobile Fighter also appears in Mobile Fighter G Gundam alongside the Shining and God Gundam and it’s equally iconic…just in a bit of a different way.

This Gundam represents the space colony of Neo Holland, and as such, it was built to represent their Dutch Culture. If the Nether Gundam was brought into Gundam Evolution, it would be as a character specialized in crowd control. It could use its Nether Typhoon to push enemies into each other or terrain and it could fly around using the blades of its windmill while in Flight Mode.

1/10 XXXG-01D Gundam Deathscythe: New Mobile Report Gundam Wing

Last up, let’s talk about the XXXG-01D, also known as the Gundam Deathscythe. Currently, in Gundam Evolution, there aren’t many “stealth type” Gundam meant to sneak up on the squishier enemy Gundams and take them out.

But, the Deathscythe could absolutely fill this role. With its Hyper Jammer it could stealth itself easily, its high mobility would allow it to move faster than all the other characters, and once it got close it could use its Beam Scythe to stab other Gundams in the back. Of course, the tradeoff for this would be that the Deathscythe would be a glass cannon that struggles at range.
