3/13/2007 - Present
History[edit | edit source]
From the beginning of the series, episodes of Gundam Wing: TAS have been posted to Tyrest's Dailymotion account as well as being posted to Youtube. On July 15, 2008, Gundam Wing: The Abridged Website was made to compile all of the episodes in a list and post announcements. By May 3, 2010, both of Tyrest's Youtube accounts for Gundam Wing: TAS, TyrestGWA and GWingTAS, were taken down for copyright infringement. Tyrest then created a new account, Tyrest Abridged, where advertisements to new episodes are posted as well as episodes of other series and one-shots.

Common Themes[edit | edit source]
Character Based Humour[edit | edit source]
The personalities of the main characters are more exaggerated for comic effect:
- Heero has a British accent. He's convinced that he's awesome and can do no wrong ("Because I'm awesome", "If you're not sure of anything, destroy everything!")
- Duo starts every sentence with "hyeh". He's also one of the most genre-savy characters, pointing out that every mission in the early series is a trap, joking about turning the series into a highschool slice-of-life show, and commenting on the cliches of the series.
- Trowa is played as more emo than ever, and appreciates the "emo" actions of other characters.
- Quatre commands the loyalty of his subordinates because he's so "cute", although the scientists responsible for training him are embarrassed that he's an effeminate pacifist. He's also a stalker obsessed with Trowa.
- Wufei has an exaggerated obsession with weakness, especially when other characters compare him to women ("I have a female sparring partner who fights just like you", "stop blubbering on like a little girl!")
- Relena is more determined than ever to force Heero to love her, and oblivious to the political situation around her.
- Treize tends to ramble off-topic and his actions are based on whatever would be the most awesome outcome. He calls EVERYONE Zechs, causing confusion when he's talking to a group of subordinate.
- Zechs is entirely oblivious to Noin and most of his subordinates making sexual advances towards him. He does have an appreciation for large cannons on Gundams and military bases. His eyes are covered by a black bar whenever his helmet is taken off (ending when he leaves Oz)
- Lady Une is more obvious about giving away Oz's evil schemes, though the protagonists still don't pick up on it. In her "Good Lady Une" personality, she's orders brutal attacks on anyone who threatens peace...and believes that she has a psychic connection with Treize telling her what to do (it's actually just her insanity)
- Noin is sexually obsessed with Zeches and tries to arrange situations so that they can be together.
- Sally is more aware of her own uselessness.
Breaking the Fourth Wall[edit | edit source]
- A majority of characters in the series are aware that the it is a show and of the Gundam franchise. They discuss whether saying "It's a Gundam!" is still funny.
- Some of them seem to have a dislike for Tyrest, the series creator.
