It's hard to overstate the impact Gundam has had not just on anime but on pop culture worldwide. As the single most prolific mecha anime franchise, Gundam is responsible for cementing giant robots in the collective human subconscious. Thanks in no small part to relentless merchandising, Gundam has successfully made space opera mainstream in Japan in the same way Star Wars has in the West.

1. Mobile Suit Gundam (1979-1980)
The first Gundam anime aired on Nagoya Broadcasting Network starting in 1979. Mobile Suit Gundam introduces the concept of Mobile Suits through a war between the Earth Federation and the Principality of Zeon. The Earth Federation's experimental RX-78 Gundam could prove to be the decisive factor in this war.

Mobile Suit Gundam spanned just 43 episodes and received rather low ratings. However, Bandai's toy merchandising success helped boost the franchise's popularity and laid the groundwork for the vast Gundam canon to come. The original Gundam, often referred to as Gundam 0079, remains a great place to start for any prospective new Gundam fans. It shows its age, but it also holds up very well for modern audiences.
2. Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam (1985-1986)
Gundam's newfound popularity led to a sequel series in Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam five years later. Considered among the best Gundam adaptations of all time, Zeta Gundam vastly improved upon the original series, focusing on darker themes and tossing higher stakes into the mix.

Zeta Gundam handles the aftermath of the "One Year War" that takes place in Mobile Suit Gundam and later Gundam series. Several years after the One Year War, teenager Kamille Bidan finds himself in the middle of a conflict between his Anti-Earth Union Group (AEUG) and a corrupt faction known as the Titans.
3. Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ (1986-1987)
Featuring an all-new cast of characters, Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ included more comedic elements than prior installments. Not all fans embraced this tonal shift, and the series remains divisive but memorable.
Gundam ZZ follows the events of Zeta Gundam and is again centered around the AEUG. Captain Bright Noa must fend off Neo Zeon by recruiting Judau Ashta and his team of junk collectors.
4. Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack (1988)
Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack is the first Gundam movie that wasn't a compilation film. Char's Counterattack even incorporated CGI, albeit very briefly. The CGI section amounted to only five seconds of screen time of the Sweetwater colony in space.
Char's Counterattack served as a culmination of the stories of Amuro Ray and his long-time rival, Char Aznable, which progressed throughout Mobile Suit Gundam, Zeta Gundam, and Gundam ZZ.
5. Mobile Suit SD Gundam (1988-1993)
Mobile Suit SD Gundam is a series of theatrical shorts and OVAs that were initially parodies of the Gundam franchise, reenacting past events such as the One Year War, in a lighter tone with exaggerated character designs.
As SD Gundam progressed, it incorporated a cast of characters based on Gachapon capsule toys and other Gundam products.
6. Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket (1989)
The first true OVA in the Gundam franchise, Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket received critical acclaim for its decidedly introspective tone throughout its six-episode run.
Rather than chronicling the exploits of pilots, War in the Pocket focuses on the wartime experiences of an eleven-year-old child during the One Year War. Alfred Izuruha and his bond with Zeon pilot Bernie Wiseman presents a refreshing perspective on an established event.
7. Mobile Suit Gundam F91 (1991)
Mobile Suit Gundam F91 is the second Gundam theatrical release and faced numerous struggles during its production. Originally set to be a Gundam reboot that was meant to spawn numerous sequels, controversies got in the way. The biggest controversy surrounds the bizarre choice to alter the size of the onscreen Gundams for the sake of easier toy manufacturing and marketing.
Gundam F91 takes place 30 years after the events of Char's Counterattack. Gundam F91 centers around Seabook Arno and his girlfriend, Cecily Fairchild, as they attempt to overcome the Crossbone Vanguard, which is led by Cecily's grandfather Meitzer Ronah.
8. Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory (1991-1992)
Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory is the second Gundam OVA and spans 13 episodes. Stardust Memory is set just three years after the events of the One Year War.
A test pilot named Kou Uraki helps on a mission to recover the stolen Gundam prototype Gundam GP02A "Physalis." GP02A was stolen by the Delaz Fleet, a group of remnant Zeon members, pursuing their goal called "Operation Stardust."
9. Mobile Suit Victory Gundam (1993-1994)
Mobile Suit Victory Gundam takes place in the Universal Century 1053 and acts as a successor to Gundam F91.
Victory Gundam ran for 51 episodes and focused on the conflict between an armed group known as BESPA and a band of rebels known as the League Militaire. In a bid to attract younger fans, Üso Ewin and his close friend Shahkti Kareen are younger than any prior Gundam protagonists, at just 13 years old.
10. Mobile Fighter G Gundam (1994-1995)
Considered the fifth official Gundam installment, Mobile Fighter G Gundam centers on an intergalactic tournament that space colonies use as a stand-in for engaging in war. The series is not set in the Universal Century timeline but instead a part of the Future Century timeline unique to Mobile Fighter.
This shift in the story's tone initially created some dissension among fans, especially because Mobile FighterG Gundam felt less serious and decidedly more shonen.
11. Mobile Suit Gundam Wing (1995-1996)
In something of a return to basics, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing focused on intergalactic war set in the After Colony timeline. Heero Yuy and four other Mobile Suit pilots are initially untrusting of each other, believing each is a part of the tyrannical Oz.
RELATED: 10 Amazing Anime Characters Fans Take For Granted, Ranked
The five pilots realize that they share the same goal of overthrowing Oz and team up to destroy the military organization. Gundam Wing helped popularize the Gundam franchise in the United States, thanks in no small part to its time slot on Toonami.
12. Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team (1996–1999)
Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team is an OVA that consists of 12 episodes, as well as a compilation movie, Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team – Miller's Report.
The 08th MS Team begins just a month after the first Gundam series. The story depicts the experiences of an Earth Federation ground unit that engages in guerilla warfare in Southeast Asia during the One Year War. It's an even more grounded take on the mecha genre, with the soldiers fighting tooth and nail for mere miles of territory in their mass-produced Gundam units.
13. After War Gundam X (1996)
After War Gundam X takes place in the After Wars alternate timeline on a post-apocalyptic version of Earth 15 years after the 7th Space War. Mobile Suits left over from the war are now in the hands of the remaining survivors. Jamil Neate seeks to keep them from being used to cause more violence.
Despite a likable cast, After War Gundam X was hampered by slow pacing and staying on planet Earth, leading to an early cancelation. The plot was condensed into the final few episodes so as not to leave fans with an abrupt ending.
14. Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz (1997)
Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz is the sequel to Mobile Suit: Gundam Wing and was initially released as an OVA series. It was later cropped into a compilation film. Endless Waltz expands on the background of Heero Yuy and the other four pilots of Gundam Wing. Endless Waltz also fully explains what the purpose of "Operation Meteor" really was.
Like its predecessor, Endless Waltz proved popular in the US, and its initial debut on Cartoon Network brought in some of the channel's best-ever ratings at the time.
15. Turn A Gundam (1999–2000)
Directed by Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino himself, Turn A Gundam, or ∀ Gundam, takes place in a different era than previous Gundam works. Turn A Gundam is notable for being the last Gundam anime to be painted on cels as digital coloring began with 2002's Mobile Suit Gundam SEED.
RELATED: 10 Best Underrated Mecha Anime Every Fan Should Watch
In Turn A Gundam, the Moon-dwelling human race known as the Moonrace is much more advanced than humanity on Earth. However, the Moonrace longs to return home to Earth after thousands of years away. They send three teenagers to gauge Earth's viability.
16. G-Saviour (2000)
Produced by a Canadian Studio, G-Saviour was Gundam's first live-action made-for-tv adaptation. G-Saviour is set in the main Universal Century timeline, focusing on space colonies trying to stay afloat amid numerous social and economic crises after the fall of the Earth Federation.
G-Saviour is understandably loathed by fans due to its poor writing and failure to capitalize on the best elements of the Gundam series. G-Saviour boasts a sad 4.2 on IMDb.
17. Gundam Neo Experience 0087: Green Divers (2001)
Gundam Neo Experience 0087: Green Divers is a short CGI film, clocking in at 24 minutes, set during the Gryps War.
Green Divers tells the story of two siblings, Asagi and Takuya, who find themselves caught in the middle of a battle between the Titans and AEUG on their way to Earth. Asagi and Takuya are helped by a Zeta Gundam who, unbeknownst to them, is piloted by Amuro Ray.
18. Gundam Evolve (2001–2007)
Gundam Evolve was a series of 15 short films set across a variety of Gundam timelines, starting with the Universal Century timeline. Gundam Evolve was initially only five episodes, but Bandai released two more volumes of five episodes each.
Gundam Evolve utilized a mix of different visual styles to showcase Mobile Suits in a high-quality CGI rendering. Those visual styles include traditional animation, 3D rendering, and cel-shaded animation.
19. Mobile Suit Gundam SEED (2002–2003)
Gundam SEED is the first Gundam series set in the Cosmic Era timeline. Gundam SEED tells the story of Kira Yamato, who is living peacefully in the colony of Heliopolis, which secretly houses the development of Mobile Suits. The discovery of those Mobile Suits leads Kira's home to be the site of an intense battle in an ongoing war.
RELATED: 10 Times Love Saved The Day In Mecha Anime
Gundam SEED was more accessible to casual viewers than many prior adaptations. It also featured much better animation, likable romance elements, and a J-Pop soundtrack. All of this led to Gundam SEED achieving widespread success and even acclaim in Japan.
20. Superior Defender Gundam Force (2003–2004)
Superior Defender Gundam Force is a completely computer-animated series that marked the 25th anniversary of the Gundam franchise. Humans and robots coexist peacefully in Super Defender Gundam Force. However, that peace is tested when the Dark Axis attacks their home of Neotopia.
Superior Defender Gundam Force did not fare well with Japanese audiences and received low ratings during its second season. It didn't do much better in North America, as the final 26 episodes were initially unaired. Fan petitions ultimately led to the release of those episodes in 2008.
21. Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: The Hidden One Year War (2004)
Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: The Hidden One Year War is yet another entry in the Gundam series set during the One Year War, taking place during the early stages of the war.
The Hidden One Year War focused on a team of researchers working in weapons development aboard a Zeon ship Jotunheim, which was formally a civilian cargo ship. The Hidden One Year War makes the most of its three episodes by depicting events such as Operation British, the Battle of Loum, and Operation Odessa.
22. Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny (2004–2005)
The direct sequel to Gundam SEED, Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny had big shoes to fill. Gundam SEED Destiny is set two years after Gundam SEED and focuses on a new protagonist, Shinn Asuka, after the treaty between the Zodiac Alliance of Freedom Treaty (ZAFT) and the Earth Alliance is broken.
Gundam SEED Destiny would become a huge success, although falling short of its prequel. The ending saw criticism to the point an OVA was developed to improve it.
23. Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: Apocalypse 0079 (2006)
Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: Apocalypse 0079 is the second MS IGLOO OVA series, once again consisting of three episodes. Apocalypse 0079 was developed after the strong success of The Hidden One Year War.
RELATED: 10 Best Anime Set During A War
Apocalypse 0079 is a continuation of the story presented in the MS IGLOO OVA and is set once again on the cargo ship Jotunheim during the One Year War. Oliver May and his crew are testing a series of weapons on behalf of Zeon to see which ones are viable for mass production and war.
24. Mobile Suit Gundam SEED C.E. 73: STARGAZER (2006)
It's not surprising that a series as successful as Gundam SEED would inspire a side story or two. Mobile Suit Gundam SEED C.E. 73: STARGAZER is the first of those side stories, based around Gundam SEED Destiny in particular. STARGAZER consists of only three episodes.
STARGAZER is set just after the "Break the World" incident and tells the story of a research coordinator, Selene McGriff, and a pilot, Sven Cal Bayang, locked in a battle over the Mobile Suit built for space exploration, which both later find themselves trapped on. While their fate is initially left unknown, a manga was released that explored what happened after the events of STARGAZER.
25. Mobile Suit Gundam 00 (2007–2009)
Mobile Suit Gundam 00 is one of the best gateway series for newcomers. 00's two-season, 50-episode run was the first Gundam series to be produced in both widescreen and high-definition. The seasonal format was also new to the franchise, and its English Ocean dub also saw praise.
Mobile Suit Gundam 00 is set on Earth at a time when fossil fuels are running out. Three warring factions vie for control of the solar energy system. All the while, an organization known as the Celestial Being desires the complete end of war by engaging in the war itself, which leads to greater issues.
26. Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO 2: Gravity Front (2009)
Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO 2: Gravity Front is produced thanks to the continued success of the other MS IGLOO entries. Like the other MS IGLOO OVAs, Gravity Front consists of three episodes.
Unlike previous MS IGLOO OVAs, Gravity Front adopted the Earth Federation's point of view during the early stages of the One Year War. The Earth Federation is fighting to take back lost territory and also includes events such as Operation British and Operation Odessa.
27. Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn (2010–2014)
Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn is an OVA series based on a successful novel by Harutoshi Fukui. Gundam Unicorn consists of seven episodes. Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn initially begins with the early days of human space colonization in Universal Century 0001 and establishes the Laplace terror attack.
The rest of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn takes place in Universal Century 0096 and tells the story of Banagher Links, a colonist boy who finds himself caught in the midst of a new conflict that relates to the Laplace terror attack.
28. SD Gundam Sangokuden Brave Battle Warriors (2010)
SD Gundam Sangokuden Brave Battle Warriors was produced in conjunction with the production of the BB Sensei Sangokuden model kits. SD Gundam Sangokuden features a story loosely inspired by the seminal classic Chinese novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
Legend has it, the Three Sovereigns once descended upon Mirisha, establishing the sun, the moon, and the sea. Legend also has it that Mirisha will descend into darkness, allowing Gundams to wield the souls of the Three Sovereigns.
29. Mobile Suit Gundam 00 The Movie: A Wakening Of The Trailblazer (2010)
Mobile Suit Gundam 00 the Movie: A Wakening of the Trailblazer is set two years after Gundam 00 and acts as a finale to the series. A Wakening of the Trailblazer focuses on the Celestial Beings in conflict with an alien group known as the ELS.
00 the Movie is the first Gundam series where aliens are the antagonists. While the film features quality animation and thrilling action setpieces, many fans were disappointed by the lack of attention given to the main cast.
30. Model Suit Gunpla Builders Beginning G (2010)
The Mobile Suit Gunpla Builders Beginning G OVA marked the 30th anniversary of the release of the RX-78-2 Gundam. Builders Beginning G consists of three episodes.
Builders Beginning G tells the story of Haru Irei, who builds a Gunpla model after being inspired by a 1/1 replica of RX-78-2 Gundam. Haru Irei then uses his Gunpla model to battle other builders in a virtual world to reach the rank of "Gunpla Meister."
31. Mobile Suit Gundam AGE (2011–2012)
Mobile Suit Gundam AGE is the 12th official Gundam anime series and is set during the Advanced Generation timeline. Gundam AGE is set throughout the One Hundred Years War, which began after Earth was suddenly attacked by an unknown enemy after a long period of peace.
Gundam AGE focuses on Flit Asuno, who received the AGE Device from his dying mother, who was killed in this attack. Flit and his later descendants attempt to utilize the AGE Device to develop a Mobile Suit that could change the tide of war.
32. Gundam Build Fighters (2013–2014)
Like Builders Beginning G, Gundam Build Fighters envisions a world where model kits and science-fiction collide. Gunpla builders use virtual reality once again to engage in holographic battles against other builders and their models. Gundam Build Fighters is not set in the same universe as Builders Beginning G.
In Gundam Build Fighters, Sei Iori is the child of a family who owns a model shop. He dreams of becoming a world-champion Gunpla fighter. However, his piloting skills leave a lot to be desired. Sei befriends Reiji, whose piloting skills are far advanced for his age. Together, Sei and Reiji balance out their strengths and weaknesses to pursue the Gunpla Battle World Championship.
33. Mobile Suit Gundam-San (2014)
Mobile Suit Gundam-San was a gag-comedy that ran for 13 episodes of roughly three minutes each. Gundam-San features a fun and expressive art style and familiar characters such as Amuro Ray and Char Aznable.
Gundam-San was designed to be a direct parody of the original Gundam series, covering notable moments and characters in a hilarious fashion.
34. Gundam Reconguista in G (2014–2015)
Gundam Reconguista in G marked the 35th anniversary of the Gundam franchise and was the first written by Yoshiyuki Tomino since 1999. The series shared a character designer with Eureka Seven and attempted to subvert story expectations (to mixed results).
Gundam Reconguista in G is set in the Regild Century, which takes place after the Universal Century. Bellri Zenam is a Capital Guard pilot-in-training who is able to control the YG-111 Gundam G-Self to pilot it, despite only a few being capable of doing so.

35. Gundam Build Fighters Try (2014–2015)
Gundam Build Fighters Try is the sequel to Gundam Build Fighters. Gundam Build Fighters Try is once again set on a version of Earth where Gunpla builders battle in a virtual realm. The series is set seven years after the conclusion of Gundam Build Fighters.
Gunpla battling has become increasingly more popular thanks to new management under Yajima Trading, who established a fresh slate of new rules and battle modes. However, Fumina Hoshino is the only student at his middle school who cares for Gunpla. Fumina seeks to find two other enthusiasts, so they can enter a Gunpla tournament.
36. Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin (2015–2018)
Mobile Suit: Gundam: The Origin is an OVA that was later compiled into a 13-episode anime. The Origin served as a retelling of the original Gundam anime and focused on Casval Rem Deikun and Artesia Som Deikun after their Side 3 escape.
The Origin chronicles the death of Zeon Zum Deikun and the subsequent transformation of the Autonomous Republic of Munzo into the Principality of Zeon. The Origin also includes a look into the development of the first Mobile Suits as well as explores the White Base crew.
37. Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans (2015–2017)
Set on a terraformed Mars, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans added fresh grit and a distinct degree of darkness to the Gundam franchise. It takes place in a new and unique timeline, so it is free to play with established Gundam tropes in a totally fresh way. It is one of the best modern jumping-on points for new viewers who don't want to jump all the way back to the 70s.
RELATED: 20 Shonen Anime With Surprisingly Sad Endings
The cast of Iron-Blooded Orphans consists of child soldiers who rebel against an abusive, Earth-dependent establishment and form their own group and fight for independence. This successful reboot of the Gundam series was written by acclaimed writer Mari Okada. IBO eschews the traditional beam and laser weapons in favor of cold, hard steel and bullets, giving the world an almost medieval feel but with legendary mobile suits in place of knights in shining armor.
38. Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt (2015–2017)
Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt is an ONA that sticks with the tried and true One Year War. Thunderbolt had an eight-episode ONA based on a manga by Yasuo Ohtagaki. The first season of four episodes is set during the One Year War, while the second season is set eight months after the conclusion of that war.
Thunderbolt centers around Io Flemming, a rebellious lover of jazz who is an ace pilot for the Earth Federation. After a successful mission, Io is given the keys to the FA-78 Full Armor Gundam prototype.
39. Mobile Suit Gundam: Twilight AXIS (2017)
Mobile Suit Gundam: Twilight AXIS is an ONA series based on a light novel written by Kōjirō Nakamura. Twilight AXIS was loosely inspired by the famed 19th-century Richard Wagner romance opera Tristan and Isolde.

41. Gundam Build Fighters: GM's Counterattack (2017)

43. Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative (2018)
Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative was the first feature-length Gundam theatrical film in eight years. It is based on the Gundam Unicorn novel Mobile Suit Gundam UC: Phoenix Hunting.
Gundam Narrative is set a year after the OVA Gundam Unicorn that saw the opening of the Laplace Box and the sealing of the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam and RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Mobile Suits. However, the previously missing RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03 has reemerged after two years, leading the Earth Federation to pursue it.
44. SD Gundam World Sangoku Soketsuden (2019-2021)
SD Gundam World Sangoku Soketsuden is an ONA that served as a follow-up to Sangokuden Brave Battle Warriors. Sangoku Soketsuden was released as a part of Gundam's 40-year anniversary.
There are no narrative ties between the two SD Gundam series, but Sangoku Soketsuden is still loosely based on Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Sangoku Soketsuden deals with the aftermath of the Etiolation Trinity epidemic, where citizens of different cities have isolated and fortified themselves from potential outside infections. Each city relies on Trinity energy, leading to plenty of conflicts.
45. Gundam Build Divers: Re:RISE (2019)
Gundam Build Divers: Re:RISE is the ONA sequel to Gundam Build Divers, which also marked the 40th anniversary of the Gundam franchise.

47. SD Gundam World Heroes (2021)
SD Gundam World Heroes is the latest series based on the SD Gundam model kits and serves as the sequel to Sangoku Soketsuden.

48. Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway (2021)

The latest film in the Gundam series is Mobile Suit Gundam: Cucuruz Doan's Island. Cucuruz Doan's Island is adapted from an infamous episode of Mobile Suit Gundam that suffered from numerous animation issues and Yoshikazu Yasuhiko's hospitalization.

RELATED: The Best Mobile Suit Designs In The Gundam Franchise
Cucuruz Doan's Island is set during the One Year War, with Amuro Ray and White Base receiving orders to fight off Zeon forces on a mysterious island labeled the "Island of No Return."
51. Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury (2022-Present)

The Witch from Mercury made its debut in Japan in October 2022 and follows the story of Suletta Mercury. Suletta is notable for being the first female main protagonist in a Gundam television anime series.
Suletta joined the piloting department of the Asticassia School of Technology after transferring there from the human colony on Mercury. Asticassia is run by the Benerit Group, a business conglomerate whose dealings are at the heart of The Witch from Mercury. Witch from Mercury, sometimes referred to by fans as "G-Witch," starts as a seemingly light and fun boarding school tale before delivering an absolute gut punch at the end of its first season. Like Iron-Blooded Orphans before it, G-Witch is a great jumping-on point for new fans as it takes place in an entirely new continuity.
