Mecha Fridays: The baffling mystery of Kira Yamato

Uncovering the mysteries of Gundam Jesus.

For many years, the protagonist of the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED series, including Destiny, Kira Yamato, has become one of the most celebrated characters in the whole Gundam franchise, and that is mainly because of his magical, if not, godly Plot Armor, that transcends even the boundaries of the Gundam franchise itself, in terms of convenience.

A particular incident, one that helped elevate the status of Kira Yamato into godhood was his inexplicable survival from the explosion stemming from a mobile suit, the Gundam Aegis, all while being exposed by a torn cockpit.

The poor old Strike did not share the same fate though.

While it was explained that Lowe Guele, protagonist of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Astray, and was part of the first SEED series as a side character and member of the group called Junk Guild, pulled out Kira from the already destroyed Strike and handed him to Lacus Clyne for treatment, it was still not explained how Kira Yamato survived the blast from the exposed cockpit, although many fan theories have tried to un-baffle this baffling mystery.

He found his waifu too, talk about having all the luck in the universe.

In addition to his resurrection, Kira Yamato is also said to be the most merciful of all Gundam protagonists, refusing to kill anyone, directly that is, and is somehow able to only cripple enemy mobile suits with a barrage of powerful beams from his other Gundam, the Gundam Freedom.

But how did Kira Yamato, our Gundam Jesus, survive the explosion?

Our theory? He did not, he was cloned.

Wait cloned? If you are one of those who faithfully watched the SEED series, you would notice that Kira along with many of the other Gundam pilots belonged to the human subclass referred to as Coordinators, or genetically modified human beings who are tweaked in ever since their embryonic stage to alter their physical and mental characteristics. The SEED series also referred to Kira Yamato as the “Ultimate Coordinator” so it is possible that a back-up DNA is kept in reserve to help ensure his survival should something as fatal as “getting blown in the face by a damn mobile suit” happen.

I’m alive, suck it.

One factor that also supports the Clone theory is the fact that Kira woke up within one of the PLANT colonies which houses most of the world’s Coordinators and serves as the center for industry and science in space. It is possible that Lowe handed what remained of Kira’s being to Lacus and his father, and was then re-constructed, or most likely cloned from the DNA signature embedded in the remains, and is perhaps even enhanced, further elevating his SEED abilities.

But while this Clone/Rebuilt theory is the one that hits close to home in explaining how Kira survived, we all know, and accept, the most prevalent one of all, and that is the being that is Kira “Jesus” Yamato.

He still didn’t become a Chrome God like Setsuna though.
