Anime Duels: Heero Yuy vs Setsuna F. Seiei


Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s time to suit up. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and in today’s Anime Duel, we’re pitting two of Gundam’s most deadly pilots against each other: Heero Yuy, Freedom Fighter of the Colonies, against Setsuna F. Seiei, Gundam Meister for Celestial Being.

For this video, we’re looking for one thing: who would win if these two Gundam Pilots went head to head. We’re not looking at their status as Anime icons or the quality of their respective series. This showdown is about brains, determination and their skill with the Gundam Mobile Suits at their disposal. Who’s ready to see who’d be the victor between these men of few words? Five rounds, winner take all, let’s get to it.

Round 1: Experience


A one on one fight between two ace pilots is the best way to show just how much they’ve been through and how much experience they’ve accumulated. When it comes to Heero, we actually don’t know too much about his past prior to his becoming a Gundam pilot. What little we know of is featured in the Episode Zero manga where we see him attacking an Alliance base in conjunction with his guardian, Odin Lowe. Still, from what we gleam in his Gundam career, Heero is pretty capable of infiltrating bases and using guerilla style tactics to bring down enemies from within, and with a bang.

Setsuna, however, grew up as a child solider in the war-torn Middle East. Being forced to kill without mercy and and survive in such a hellish environment built Setsuna into the pilot he becomes when he joins Celestial Being. Those experiences serve as secret fuel for Setsuna, memories repressed but never buried, as he enters combat in his Gundam. So while he and Heero both have combat history that started when they were younger, Setsuna takes this category solely on the fact that we know, and see, more about his past and are aware of what it has made him into.

Winner: Setsuna


Heero: 0 / Setsuna: 1

Round 2: Strength and Endurance


In truth, if this battle were based on this Round alone, this fight could go on for a very long time with neither giving way, and might even end in a tie. Heero is almost superhuman in his strength and he can endure the most extreme of conditions. Of course, he brings this same endurance into his piloting. He can mow down legions of mobile suits without even breaking a sweat and could go on fighting battles for hours if needed.

Setsuna is very much the same way. For someone so tiny, he is freakishly strong and, with this strength, can pull off moves with his Gundam that seem superhuman themselves. We know he works out, constantly staying in shape, and is even able to take down adults twice his size. However, much like Round 1, we know what Setsuna has gone through to get to this point. To survive such hardships as a child soldier and continue to fight takes a strong heart. If pushed, and we mean really pushed though, we think Setsuna could give Heero a run for his money and eventually wear him down. Back to back wins for Setsuna.

Winner: Setsuna


Heero: 0 / Setsuna: 2

Round 3: Allies


Both Setsuna and Heero tend to be loners when it comes to how they conduct their business. But even they need friends from time to time. For Setsuna, those allies are his fellow Gundam Meisters of Celestial Being. Each has their own specially powered and unique skill set Gundam. Lockon Stratos has sniping expertise with Gundam Dynamus, Alleluia excels in high speed combat with Gundam Kyrios, and Tierria with his Gundam Virtue has a giant beam cannon. Together, these four can make a pretty solid team.

Heero doesn’t lack for friends either however. He has his four other Freedom Fighter pilots: Duo Maxwell and the Gundam Deathsythe, Trowa Barton and the Gundam Heavyarms, Quatre Reberba Winner and the Sandrock Gundam and Wufei Chang and the Shenlong Gundam. While the Gundams of Celestial Being look new and shiny, Heero does have a one man advantage in reinforcements. Even an extra ally could mean the difference between victory and defeat. Plus, his best friend has one of the coolest Gundams ever, we love you Deathsythe.

Winner: Heero


Heero: 1 / Setsuna: 2

Round 4: Versatility


Things are always changing on the battlefield. Unforeseen obstacles, reinforcements, surprise disasters, you name it and a gundam pilot needs to be ready for it. Heero, pretty much has the mind of a super computer. Even without the Zero System, he can comprehend battlefield data at an insane rate. He already plans things way out in advance, taking the time to study as many variables to any given scenario. If anything goes wrong, Heero has Plan B through Plan Z all ready to go.

Setsuna, while not a master planner, definitely has the capacity to adapt and change his battle plan on the fly. However, he tends to rely more on the power of his Gundam than his own mind. He is a fighter first and foremost and would rather see the battle finished as quickly as possible, while he still has control over the situation. It’s hard to imagine that Heero wouldn’t be ready for whatever Setsuna could throw at him. And Heero’s ability to gather data and come up with last minute solutions is just an area Setsuna can’t compete.

Winner: Heero


Heero: 2 / Setsuna: 2

Round 5: Weapons, Powers and Equipment


We’re tied up going into the final round. Only one way to settle this: The Gundams themselves. Heero’s choice of mecha are all about superior firepower and mobility. Both the Wing Gundam and Wing Gundam Zero are equipped with transformable fighter modes for fast transportation. In terms of firepower, the buster rifle is capable of blowing apart entire squadrons or even colonies for that matter. Factor in the mind enhancing Zero System inside Wing Zero and you’ve got a lethal fighting machine.

Setsuna’s Exia is a slice and dice machine but the 00 Raiser and 00 Quant have been tuned specifically to Setsuna’s abilities as an Innovator. Both enable Setsuna to reach other to all pilots on the battlefield through their minds and emotions, seeking a peaceful solution. And when that fails they’re also outfitted with powerful beam weapons, including skyscraper sized beam sabers that can cut through just about anything, and powerful shield that can block even blasts from battleships. These are meant to be the Gundams to end all wars and we cant argue with that. Setsuna’s Gundam are one a whole other level though. Setsuna takes the win, and the battle right here and now.

Winner: Setsuna


Heero: 2 / Setsuna: 3

And there you have it folks. In a battle of experience, versatility and the power of a Gundam, Setsuna takes victory home with a 3 to 2 score. Guess he wasn’t kidding when he says he is a Gundam himself.

Do you agree with this outcome? How do you think Heero could overcome Setsuna’s battle prowness? For other awesome videos published every day, accept your mission to subscribe to WatchMojo.com.
