Kira Yamato is the civilian who soon becomes the pilot of the GAT-X105 Strike Gundam
. He is not afraid to cry, risks things too much, and isn't afraid of screwing up. Later, he becomes the pilot of the legendary Freedom Gundam
, and defies all laws of physics to save the day. He then gets the crap
beaten out of him by Shinn Asuka
. He later pilots an awesome Gundam which doesn't add up to laws of gravity, physics, or plain common sense: the Strike-Freedom
Kira was always risking things, and he always cried. But he was a nice guy!
