Where is Shinn Asuka, he's the strongest.

Yoshiyuki Tomino, the creator of the Gundam series, himself acknowledged Amuro as having the "best piloting technique"

Proof that it's important to read the manual first.

No Asuka or Rei? I'd pick them both over the other NGE choices.

Yeah I was thinking Kallen from Code Geass, but she's not even on the suggested list, and there's no option to add our own choice this time -_-

Since mental strength is part of "strength", I put in Akito Tenkawa from Nadesico.

Kira on here makes me laugh. Kira relies heavily on his MS more than his own skills. After all, he's a programmer and not a pilot.

Also; no Kuro? Its not Super-exempt given Simon and Guy are listed. Mad

No Kamina? I guess there is new generation of anime fans nowadays.

Btw. Simon on 11th, let's just ignore fact that he had mech bigger than half of universe.

These rankings are always retarded. Rolling Eyes

I thought Char was a lot more popular than Amuro.

But this poll defied my expectations.

It's a fair poll, since it's about the skill of the pilot, not how powerfull the mecha. Amuro is, obviously, the best. Kira should indeed be second since he was genetically modified to be as close to perfection as possilble.

The fact is that Kira needed some lady skills before he can even reach his god-status. So Lacus is actually the strongest pilot because she piloted Kira. Lacus is the most powerful character in Gundam, I tell you, and she doesn't even have to do any fighting.

Kamille beating Char? Such a headline itself is nothing short of scandalous. This is front-page material, I say!

Yeah, this list is kind of a mess, It's mostly just a popularity poll. Shinji wouldn't make the list otherwise since he's almost never in control when he does something good and I'm aghast at Kaworu's presence (maybe he does something in Rebuild 3?)

How did Hikaru beat out Maxamillion Genius? Where are Pilots like Yazan Gable or Ali-Al Saachez that are a sheer terrors on the battlefield (and tend to be beaten by a bit of Deus Ex Machina)? Why is Chirico so low?

You could even offer some debate as to whether Lelouch and Inaho deserve a spot here as their actual skills at controlling mecha are secondary to their ability to fomulate and execute plans.
