Gundam 00 Ponies: Lockon, Allelujah and Setsuna by SapphireGamgee Gundam 00 Ponies: Lockon, Allelujah and Setsuna by SapphireGamgee
Part 1 of a commission for :iconblackvegetable: of gundam meisters Lockon Stratos, Allelujah Haptism and Setsuna Seiei from Gundam 00. :iconblackvegetable: wanted designs of them as ponies, and also with gundam armor.

We decided something closer to body armor, rather than actual gundams, would work better. The design of the gundam armor was interesting as each had to be modified not only to be body armor, but to fit pony anatomy. The armor also enhances the special strengths of each type of pony: earth, unicorn, pegasus, and alicorn. Pegasi and alicorns use their own wings to fly. Given the way their flight capabilities are set up (being able to pull carts and such in the air without anything more than their wings to hold them up) using their own wings, even with the weight of gundam armor, would be the better choice. Earth ponies and unicorns have to use jet propulsion (or levitation, if they're powerful enough, though doing that AND fighting is almost always far too taxing) . Of course, unicorns and alicorns have their magic, and earth ponies have greater strength and stamina. Weapons also had to be modified somewhat. Rifles, for instance, hook onto the front hoof parts of the armor and are fired by the same tactile magic that allows ponies to pick things up without fingers. They can also use magic, if they have it.

On a minor note, I had to integrate Lockon's Haro, somehow, so I placed it as a movable piece in his chest plate.

As for the ponies themselves, they're all from the first season, so no missing eyes and upgraded gundam armor. I already had Setsuna's design, but Lockon and Allelujah were new to me. (The second part of this commission will be with Tierie Erde and Fon Spaak; I didn't want to try and cram all five on here) . Setsuna's cutie mark is a gundam head because "I AM GUNDAM!" Lockon's is a target, of course, because he's a ridiculously good marksman. Allelujah's is supposed to show his dual nature, like his two different-colored eyes, that show which side is in control. The silver is his kind and gentle persona, the gold is the calculating, uncaring survivor which sometimes comes out when his life is in danger. I made his gold eye prominent in his gundam armor to show the difference.

Part 2 is here

I guess the real Setsuna's face turns dumbfounded for the first time if he sees his pony form.

Setsuna(human):Another me?For real?

i like em....well, except setsuna. It should be either 0 gundam's face or 00q's face instead of exia's. After all for him Gundam itself is a symbol of eradicating wars by the use of force and.....because 00 quanta was setsuna's ideal gundam *refers the movie* and designwise, a combination of his gundams he used. but then again i might be mistaken.... >.>

I'm not too up on the show, so that's also possible! I don't know how Setsuna's powers manifest in the actual show.

Okay, basically, he starts as a normal human, gets saturated with GN particles which start transforming him into an evolved human, and he eventually gets psychic powers and fuses with a living metal alien species to become pseudo-immortal. So, kind of like an Earth pony becoming a Unicorn becoming an Alicorn… kinda. Vaguely. Okay, I'm forcing it. Sorry.

Also, GN Particles sparkle. A lot.

Hahaha I immediately saw that Setsuna's cutie mark was a gundam head! That's great!
I really enjoyed Gundam 00 (especially because of GRAHAM, what a CUTIE!!!)

They look so great! You're really good at imitating the My Little Pony style. It looks like they could seamlessly fly right into the actual series! It looks like you put a lot of thought into this and I'm really impressed by the Gundam armor they have. It looks so precise! *0* Very cool!

Indeed - lots of speculation as to what gender many of them are from us audiences! At the end of the last episode of Season 1 for example, we thought Regene Regetta [link] (English Dubbed voiced by Nicole Oliver aka. Princess Celestia and Cheerilee respectively), was Tieria four years later when in fact he was his genetic twin! Even with the differences in Japanese and English voices (still better watch Season 2), Regene still sounds like a woman even though he's a male! ^^;

According to this article [link] direct sex/gender 'was only given to Innovades that were meant to live and mingle in human society; a purpose commonly given to Intelligence Gathering Type Innovades'.

:lightbulb: One more thing I should have mentioned earlier, and idea even. One reason why I decided on Tieria being a unicorn pony initially was because of the bit that when he was recruited as a candidate Third Generation Gundam Meister in 2302 AD, Veda (Celestia Being's Supercomputer) intended not to reveal the former's Innovade status otherwise the harmony of recruiting Human Gundam Meisters would be destroyed (see [link], under Inception) plus we didn't know his genetic origin in Season 1 until Season 2. I'm thinking, if you wanted the wings still, how about his wings either illusionary, or hidden by fur to make his unicorn cover convincing? :) What do you think?

:iconsapphiregamgee:
SapphireGamgee Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
That could work for Tieria. I think illusory wings would be best- plus, that would set him off visually from the actual Innovator, Setsuna. The wings will appear in battle when he's hooked up to Veda.
