    Thumbs up Gundam and Mecha Question!

    Hey, in the Gundam series, and other famous mecha series, do the machines themselves have various powers and abilities, besides different swords and guns? Or are the differences mostly about power level like DBZ?

    Thanks!

    Well i dont know if you would consider these DBZ moves, but series to have attacks other than just a standard gun or sword would definately be Super mecha series.
    Series like Gunbuster, there are powerful kicks and super movies. In Toppa Gurran there is Drills and spiral power, that rely on a different attack alltogether.
    Gai Gao gar there are a lot of super moves and hand gestures that had beam attacks like stars, and deflections with an open hand. the fist also cound be launched as a spinning weapon.

    A little outside of Super, is G Gundam
    In that one there are many of the Gundams that are like mixed martial artist, and or Wrestlers and odd attacks. And a end machine with nanobot attack ability (sorta unique)

    And I am probably stretching your definition a bit, but in Bubble Gum Crisis one of the Hard Suits in the Crash OAV's had a flurry of computer stystems that could be used to attack computer systems or hack in, also one hard suit used thes killer wips that were attached like a long scarf to chop stuff up.

    There are many more, that just comes to the top of my head.
    I hope that helps if not maybe somone else can chime in.
    Sure Wish I had a little dvd player on my forklift at work... no, wait, that would be dangerous.

    It's the quality. Also has to do with series, and weaponry. A UC Gundam would beat a Celestial Spirit any day.

    I'm not sure if the people posted an answer but there is some series of mechs.

    Neon Genesis Evangelion and Robotech. Also, not sure if much anime lovers knows of a gundam series for GX 9900 Gundam X(double X)

    All anime mech are split into two catagory Real or Super at their core but the line between them can get blurred at times such as Evangelion.

    Real Robots: are the mechs that uses conventionale and semi-realistic weapon such as machine gun, rocket launcher, missiles, bombs, cannons, and particle/beam weapons. Real Robots also have more limited range in their movements and have a more realist design in their appearnce. A few example of Real Robots are Macross, Patlabor, Full Metal Panic, Nadesico, Code Geass, and ofcourse the legendary Gundam series.

    Super Robots: are mechs that have overwhelming powers, some are even capable of evolving, transforming, or combining to become stronger. Super Robots also use very unconentional weapon such as giant satalite hammers, a giant sword and magic that take a ridiculous amount of time to use and they can also use signature attack techniques similar to DBZ. As for their design there mostly just for cosmetics. A few example are Voltron, Mazinger, Getter Robo, Cybuster, GaoGaiGar, Gravion, and a bunc.h more.
