What are the emotional relationships within the Gundam Wing Series?
The Original Gundam Quiz was supposed to be a fully interactive quiz. You honestly believe that Relena and Heero's relationship will not turn into an abusive marriage. and Duo looks like he is having way to much fun touching Heero. Trowa is emailed a quiz and passes it onto the other pilots. 1x2 3x4 Heero ~ favorite type of music- whatever Duo blasts that comes right through the wall. . ~ smart?- yes, that way, Heero's and my relationship is balanced. when not battleing.

Her tone is almost spiteful, tasking him to carry out his threat to kill her- almost trying to spite him. She does, however, when she learns that OZ killed her father, begin to understand what it is that Heero is fighting against- and that he routinely risks death to do it reference to his threat to kill her, and the shootout with Duo. She asks to see him- he is the only one who can help her get revenge on OZ. J tells her that Heero is actually a good hearted young boy, and Relena says that she already knew that.
This is unlikely- it is more likely that Relena will refuse to believe the worst in someone so young- that he must have had good reason to do what he does- that is to say, that she believes in him. She believes in him enough to be able to help her get revenge on OZ. J also describes Heero light heartedly as a 'rascal', it could be that Heero is in fact more of a deviant than we know of.
Perhaps Heero does not always treat his missions including the destruction of civilians as seriously as he is told to. He also advises Relena that he is dedicated to his mission, despite being of good heart, and so that for her own safety, she is in too deep and she should keep away.
J recognises the determination and genuineness of Relena, he compares it to the same qualities in Heero the two are symbols of Earth and Space respectively, and part of the plot of the story is that the two are more similar than either would admit, and both need to work together to solve the big problemsbut also advises her to keep away from Heero- perhaps he knows something that she doesn't about his relations, that he does not form relations with girls, or he will do whatever it takes to carry out the mission.
We do not know and cannot speculate. Perhaps the rest of the episodes will throw some light on the problem. Duo manages to get his mobile suit rebuilt, and meets Heero fighting at an airbase.
Duo has not forgiven Heero, and believes Heero is not interested in getting to know each other- that they are going to have to fight. However, Heero saves Duo from an oncoming mobile suit.
He has no reason, save for the fact that Duo dredged up his mobile suit, something which Heero would have found a way to do anyway.
Perhaps it was to say sorry for dismantling his mobile suit- that they were now even. He protects Relena because it is not in his nature to kill, and because later in the story it becomes clear precisely how important Relena is- and also because Relena helped him when he was shot: He has no such obligations to Duo, but clearly bonding of some sort must have happened- otherwise why would he be reacting to him in this way, which is completely different to the way he treats everyone else?
Quatre wakes up in his room and finds Trowa leaving out of the front porch. It is implied from Quatre's longing to see him again that they spent a great deal of time together- and as Quatre seems to have woken up, and discovered Trowa missing, then looked out of the window and saw him heading away, it would not be too much of a leap of imagination to think that they may have spent the night together.
He either knew he was missing, then saw him out of the window in which case they spent the night together or he happened to look out of the window and saw him leaving. Heero feels he owes Duo a price for double-crossing him, and now considers them both even. He obviously values Duo enough to want to pay him back for his problems, as he has no other reason to even consider worrying about him.
Relena finds herself in incredibly deep trouble- perhaps she should have listened to Heero's warnings. She begins to form a mental image of Heero as some sort of saviour to her problems. A replacement for her father. Duo is amazed that Heero helped him, and more than a little surprised. He vowes to 'get' Heero, but he obviously cares about Heero considering the lengths he went to in order to try and befried him too much to make this a genuine threat.
Quatre and Trowa spend the night together- possibly in the same room, but although strongly implied it is not conclusive. Episode 6 Relena finally manages to catch up with Heero.
He is busy deleting the school's record on him, in preparation for his leaving. He had already seen the party which was being organised, but, with something of a sigh, knows that he cannot be free to go enjoy himself, and forget about war for a moment.
Relena bursts in, and tells Heero she knows he is leaving to fight. Heero's instant reaction is to kill her, but he is stunned when she tells him how much she knows- including all about Dr. She also says killing her would make a great deal of commotion. She is right, and Heero knows it- his only choice is to indulge her in her dance, and once finished, will dispose of her- he admits it when she asks if he's still going to kill her, and he says in all honesty 'yes.
Heero obviously would have been aware of the assassination, and when Relena tells him she is fighting with him, and is not trying to undermine him, he appears to be taken aback but also releaved and confused- he no longer has to kill her, but exactly what is she going to do?
How is she going to fit into the war? Trowa's deapseated fears and torments Episode 0 mangas are seen by Catherine Bloom in the circus, when she realises his eyes beg for death from her.
Duo stares laying at the moon, thinking wistfully about Heero. When asked, he says he is just thinking is Heero even appreciates the moon, but from an inner thought we learn he is in fact wondering what Heero is doing.

He is spending his evening thinking about Heero. OZ attack the party, and Heero, as a reflex of his kind heart, reaches out to save Relena- who has done so much and has such trust in him.
This is directly against, however, what would be good for him in the long term. He cannot understand why he cannot bring himself to kill her- he knows it would be best, but he cannot kill an innocent girl, in cold blood, who has such faith and trust in him- and, it seems, needs him.
Instead, he does the only thing he can do, and flies away. Relena asks him not to go- she knows too much about him, and she considers herself to be a friend, as well as desperately wanting to join forces to stop OZ. Are her motives selfish, wishing to avenge her father? Or are they about friendship for Heero?
Considering the cold shoulder she has got from Heero at all times up until now, it is probably mostly the latter- she needs Heero. Heero on the other hand is facing a crisis which he will learn to accept see later episode, in which he cannot bring himself to kill Duo he just cannot justify killing someone who has made 'contact' with him- the only person whom he could possibly consider a friend, even if they did force that position onto him.
Heero has feelings of compassion for Relena, due to the faith and trust she has in him, and as such will automatically try and save her if a reflex is required. However, his good natured feelings are overshadowed by his own mind, in which Relena is a threat. She considers herself the only friend he has, and Heero recognises that she is indeed trying to reach him, as we have established for her own means and curiosity.
He cannot hurt someone who thinks of him in such a way. We see this also in a later episode when he cannot bring himself to kill Duo. Duo continues to think and dream about Heero. He does indeed admire him, and is thinking about their next meeting. The similarities between Duo and Relena, with regards to Heero, are very clear. Neither can be killed, and both find him a fascinating conundrum.

However, at this stage, their reasons are different: Relena considers herself a 'friend' to Heero, and wants to help him destroy OZ to avenge her father.
Duo, however, admires Heero for his physical prowess and abilities- he has no more motive than simply wanting to get closer to Heero for the sake of it. We only see this side of Heero after Dr.
J has told us he is basically a kind boy- and we know he rides his emotions. Episode 7 The pilots begin heading towards a meeting, which OZ has disinformed the public as having all the OZ officials in attendance.
In reality, it is all of the Alliance's pacifists, the only people who stop war. Heero, while loading his Gundam onto a plane, discovers Duo also on the plane loading his as well.
Instead of demanding Duo to leave, or threatening him, as he would have done earlier, Heero instead lets Duo continue as he pleases, much to the amazement of Duo. We can only assume this is an emotional development on the part of Heero- he realises Duo is an ally, even if he is still cold to him.
In the plane, Duo tells Heero of his plans to go back to outer space when the mission is completed. Heero stares at Duo for a good while, looking at his eyes, with an expression of what can only be called ambivalence- he seems to have wanted Duo to come along with him otherwise he would have thrown him outbut also seems to be jealous of Duo's having plans, or to be more accurate, a life to go back to after the wars are over.
To further continue their relationship, Heero and Duo fight together when they arrive at the base, and work far better. This implies that during their flight, they bonded even more and became much closer.
Heero seems to have a desire to have Duo 'around', perhaps as a friend or ally, make of it what you will, and Duo seems to enjoy being around Heero, whom he admires. Trowa and Quatre also fight together, but Duo tries to strike out at Trowa. This proves the theory that just because their suits look alike, it does not mean the pilots instantly assume they are on the same side, so we must ask the question: Heero does not think about Relena this whole episode, but Relena is shocked to hear on the news that Heero destroyed the Alliance Pacifists.
Heero cannot believe it either, his mission was faulted. Perhaps he is beginning to learn that missions are not always right, and one must try and call the shots as one sees fit? There is a dramatic development in the relationship between Duo and Heero: However it is a comradeship overshadowed by Heero's jealousy and longing for Duo's way of life, and of Duo's admiration for Heero.
Trowa and Quatre continue to work together, although Trowa now appears far colder to Quatre. We can only assume Quatre works through this as their fighting continues, as by the end of the episode they seem friends again. Wufei also finally meets the other Gundam pilots. Heero and Duo have developed mutual 'reasons' to be around each other, and these reasons are clearly more self motivated, as oppose to Relena's reasons which are motivated by her circumstances and ambitions.
Heero and Duo work together because they want to. Episode 8 Heero takes his mistake during the mission very much to heart, and when ordered to go and deactivate the missiles seems quiet, miserable, and yet very determined.
Duo's inclination is obvious that he does not believe Heero will succeed, and that they should leave- and only when Quatre reminds him that Heero will also need a transport aeroplane does he think of it.
This would seem to imply that Duo is more than a little uncertain with regards to Heero, he has taken in that Heero is cold to him, and much as they have bonded, Duo still has considerable doubts.
However he is the only one who screams his concern when Heero simply stands, at the start of the episode, and lets the enemies shoot at him. Duo does, secretly, seem to believe that Heero will deactivate the missiles, however 'it's all up to you now, Heero', but just will not let himself admit it I make reference to the continued 'contest' which Duo offers to end with Heero in Episode 9 and when the missiles are deactivated, he is very congratulatory to the Japanese boy.
Duo's final doubts in Heero's abilities and in his ability to save other people's lives appear to have been set aside. Wufei is beaten by Trieze in a sword fight- Wufei's beliefs are such that one is a weak warrior if one is beaten, so he leaves the fight with the firm belief that he is a failure, and not fit to be a Gundam pilot. Quatre also refers to Heero as Duo's 'friend'.
Heero and Duo have a bond, as previously established, but this episode highlighted the faults within that bond- most notably Duo's lack of belief in Heero as he started off with admiration for him, this could only be the result of Heero's cool behaviour and also of his mistake of killing the pacifists. However Quatre refers to them as friends, and considering the two tended to stick together, this would seem to be the case.
Duo's faith in Heero is restored at the end of the episode, and although it was not actually his doing, Heero would have been more than aware whom arranged for the transport carrier for him. We can only assume that their relationship and bond is strengthened. Quatre also shows an innate ability to judge and have faith in those who deserve it. Episode 9 Heero and Duo attend school together, and appear to 'bunch up'. They both appear on the same team in basketball, walk together, and take the same classes together.
Heero is a loner, and Duo, when telling him not to be so severe all the time, mocks him by mimmicking 'yeah I know, leave me alone'. It is strange that a loner like Heero would take someone this close. Perhaps we would do better to interpret this as Heero only asking Duo to leave him alone when it came to personal matters? Duo also says that he knows he and Heero are after the same thing- and that the first one to reach and destroy a base is the winner of this 'contest'.
We can only assume, therefore that since Duo has spoken before episode 2 that Heero is trying to out do him, that this refers to some intangible contest they have going. Duo also displays a tendancy to refer to the pair of them as 'we', together, rather than separately. He also makes an effort to smile and wave at the girls in the crowd, although he immediately follows this by saying 'You wouldn't stand out so much if you smiled once in a while'.
We could quite safely interpret this, therefore, as Duo just trying to act normal. When Relena arrives, Heero is shocked to see her, and Duo comments it is a very unique girl who goes to such lengths to find the man trying to kill her. Relena says she is glad with heartfelt conviction to see Heero again.
How does he know Heero is 'trying' to kill her and it was not just a one-off incident? That she was not just, once, in the wrong place at the wrong time? Later in the episode, she is talking to a photograph of her father, and says that she needs Heero's 'support', at least until she gets over her father's death.
She also jocularly says that her father would not be surprised to hear she had gone to these lengths to chase a guy. It would appear therefore that the logic trail of believing Heero to be something of an emotional replacement for her father is accurate, and also that Relena wishes Heero to help her she asks Heero to help her to learn to be strong. Heero continues to be confused- Relena re-entering his life is another dimension which he did not need added to a mission which, in this episode, we learn is suicide.
The pilots are to keep on fighting until their deaths. Wufei and Trowa also spend time together, Trowa forms an emotional connection with Wufei, because he understands something of Wufei's pain. Relena does look upon Heero as an object for support, and as a person who will help her do what she wants to do. She also shows concern for him, or rather shock, when she sees an explosion and knows Heero is at the heart of it. Heero's way of life is in direct conflict with her own- this may be another point of fascination.
Heero is beginning to be an obsession- almost a hobby, she continues following him because she has pushed it this far and now has no reason to stop, if she continues, however, she will get everything she wants: Her views have all the objectivity of a crush- she does not look upon Heero as a person, but as a riddle, and more than that as a solution to her own problems. Although this is not conclusive, but we shall bear it in mind for the next section of the logic trail and see what develops.
Heero's views of Relena have not changed- he cannot kill her, because he knows how much she values him, and how much she has done for him, and yet his life is made a thousand times harder having her around. He also is uncomfortable having Duo around him emotionally, but does not seek to lose him- when going to class, it is Heero who is following Duo, not the other way around. We can only assume Heero and Duo are now friends, although Heero would almost certainly never look at it in that way, in exactly the same way he would never look on himself as protecting Relena.
Even Relena has more than a few similarities with Sayla Mass from the original series. It was the perfect way of teasing the new series, which would premiere the very next week.
Unfortunately, this introspective plan had to be scrapped when scheduling became complicated and tumultuous after head writer, Katsuyuki Sumisawa, suddenly quit the series. Weirdos do exist though. The Gundam Perfect Mission 30th Anniversary short is a great little gem, and the entire concept of the Gundam Evolve shorts revolve around tradition. Gundam Wing might not get such an honor, but it does happen to share a premiere date with the original series, Mobile Suit Gundam.
Deciding to have this premiere date on the anniversary of Mobile Suit Gundam in order to call upon the heavy tradition of the series is a great way to conjure up nostalgia, too. Such an alliance between Zechs and Treize might surprise you at first, but the idea here is that the two of them intentionally set out to make the Eve War between the Earth Nation and White Fang as grueling and miserable as possible so people would be more receptive to the idea of pacifism.
These are shows filled with giant mobile suits! A number of integral mobile suits have been put through the wringer in various series, with Gundam Wing showing no fear in the area of killing its mecha-darlings.
