I was surprised to find so few reactions to the end of Code Geass in this comm Lelouch has relationships with three main women (excluding his obvious love for She, like CC, does so in the end, because Lelouch teaches both of them the .. the Tianzi, the person he called for was Shirley and he listened to her advice. Why did Charles kisses CC when he encounters Lelouch in Code Geass? 2, Views · Why do people like Lelouch and CC as a couple? 6, Views. Lelouch/Kallen Advice? I think it was so touching and thoughtful for Lelouch to care for C.C's I learned so much from your perspectives and made me see Code Geass, especially Lelouch and C.C. pairing in a wider and different light. . In my opinion, this is due to their particular and deep connection.
This couple does not kiss a lot, but when they do, a part of us die or is it just me? In episode 24 of the first season, CC admitted that she was kind of afraid. Because she was about to face the by then psycho Jeremiah Gottwald aka Orange. The latter then told her to not die as if she would. Who would forget this scene? The moment he saw her hand bleeding, he immediately went to her and appease for what he did. In order to save him a few minutes and from the infuriating wrath and wig of Emperor Charles, CC transported Lelouch to her own memories wherein Lelouch saw some glimpse of her past.
There, Lelouch figured out her true wish which was to be loved. Also, there was an episode similar to this in R1 when Lelouch accidentally crept into her memories.
The Emperor can overwrite memories just like a king can rewrite his nation's history. Rolo can control the perception of time for people. A bad king's reign can seem to go on and on. Mao knows everything the people around him are thinking and a ruler would or at least should be able to monitor a lot of what goes on in his kingdom. C's Geass let her be loved by everyone and a good king or queen could be idolized to that point. Even Bismark, Marianne and that random kid in the Geass cult relate.
A good king should be able to predict how their actions will effect things, Marianne's is the equivalent of your ideas living on through a successor and the random kid who could move people's bodies was like a manipulative king who makes the entire kingdom dance to his whims through bureaucracy. Finally, the ultimate goal of the Geass is to make someone immortal and a ruler can often become immortalized by the actions they do in life.
At first the explanation for Rolo's power seemed contrived and reaching, but then I realized: His power is flawed. It stops his heart. In other words, he's a bad king.
This isn't the first time that someone died because a flippant remark was parsed as a royal command. The technological breakthroughs of Code Geass over the course of the series can seem a bit Technology shouldn't improve at such a rate, especially not knightmares 7 years for the 4th and 5th generations, 2 years for 7, 8, and 9th generation frames. However, it becomes brilliant when you consider 2 factors: Code Geass takes place during a period of astounding technological growth in our world the Cold War eraand: Schneizel planned this out the entire time.
He wanted to build Damocles, and so poured countless resources into developing the relevant technologies. The float systems, shielding, knightmares, and even the FLEIJ As become awesome when you realize that they were all meant to be used together from day one. For those people who watched Code Geass before they watched shows like the Gundam Franchise and EvangelionI would suggest watching those series next, followed by rewatching Code Geass.
I won't get into the Eva references, since those have been done to death on this site, but take a look at Mobile Suit Gundam. Zero and Char Aznable hell, Char even means "four", fitting with the number theme.
Nunnally may also have some connection being inspired by or inspiring to Mineva Lao Zabi Audrey Burne. Marianne vi Britannia, who was described as loving and a general saint by those that knew her and was later assassinated could have some inspiration drawn from Zeon Zum Deikun, who was a philosopher and a pacifist.
They even have the same habit of using those nonsensical honorifics in their names. Hell, Lelouch killed Clovis first, just as Char did to Garma! Charles is much like Degwin, both seeming like ruthless tyrants while, in reality, being tired of war. Charles simply had a very Gendo-esque way of ending it!

Gihren inspired Schneizel from the pseudo-German name right down to the superweaponmixed in with Charles' speech-giving powers. Both even tried to take over near the end. Sadly, Cornelia's attempt to shoot Schneizel near the end was far less successful than Kycilia's assassination of Gihren. In addition, the idea of these characters being royalty and exiled royalty rather than just pseudo-noble dictators was taken from Mobile Suit Gundam Wingwith Lelouch being much like the infamous Char CloneZechs, who is an exiled Prince with blood on his hands also note that Milliardo and Zechs are both Number based, like Zero, as was the theme in Wing!
Which would make Nunnally based on Relena! In short, no matter how completely out of the blue many plot points may seem, its obvious that they had been using previous Gundam series as inspiration the whole damn time. Perhaps people would have been far more able to discover the motives and suspected actions of many characters if they simply watched the series that came before and followed what the equivalent character did or tried to do. Speaking of Lamperouge, if rouge means red and lamp means a holder of light, then considering that Geass is depicted as a bright-red bird contained in Lelouch's eye The fact that Suzaku vows to be the one to kill Zeroand at the end of R2, despite the situation having changed significantly still ends up fulfilling that promise.
Ironically, he's also the one that takes up the mask, resurrecting the identity of Zero and enabling the symbol of him to live on. It always bugged me that in R2 the mechas always explode after receiving fatal damage, something which happened less in R1. But then I realized that the new mecha were built after the conquest of Japan, the worlds largest supply of sakuradite, which was used as a mecha power source.
The knightmares were upgraded with more sakuradite, and thus made big explosions. The conversation between Schneissel and Lelouch in R2 turn 24 always seemed impossible, due to their being no way that Lelouch was able to predict the words strategy and plan. But after rewatching I realized that he didn't need it. Lelouch's manner of speaking is a triumphant monologue about the subject that Schneissel would likely start about. He only makes it look like a conversation by pausing after each sentence.
It is just coincidence Schneissel uses the same words as his monologue, but it would still be a believable conversation even if he didn't. Lelouch is acting like he is scolding a child, interruptions, lack of relevant replies and weird pauses are par for the course in that sort of conversation. Am I the only one who thinks he's one of the most brilliantly handled characters in this show? For all the time he's alive, he's basically your typical Smug Snakeincompetent but callous rulerwho perhaps earns a bit of sympathy for his death but is otherwise just someone to showcase the evils of the Britannian Empire and let Lelouch have his Curb-Stomp Battle.
Then the rest of his appearance or rather, when he's referred to spend their time deconstructing this notion: Even his most horrendous action, the demolition of the Shinjuku ghetto, is, if not justified, certainly given an excuse - it becomes abundantly clear over the rest of the show that Clovis really would've gotten in quite a lot of trouble with a lot very powerful, very nasty people if anything with C.
So, whilst the action he took was still monstrous, one can understand his being a tad irrational with fear at the time - indeed, one even realises that this probably him in the worst light possible.
All in all, it becomes apparent that for all his many failings and the typical vices of the Social Darwinist Britannian aristocracy, Clovis was actually quite a nice guy.
Yes, by dint of the job. But a Jerk Ass Woobie in this troper's opinion. Clovis seems like a pretty evil guy compared to Lelouch's Anti-Hero tendencies Considering all the Character Derailment and Rescued from the Scrappy Heap that we see in the living characters, it makes perfect sense that Clovis and Marianne get the exact same treatment.
There's also the audio drama that shows how Clovis originally decided to take that position. He clearly has no inclination towards war and politics, and no desire to involve himself in it, but in the Britannian royal family, if you're not a soldier, you're trash. Cornelia and Schneizel are incredibly rude to him and he just takes it. Then he tells them that he has accepted the position of viceroy of Area 11, and they're shocked and they don't think he can do it.
He tells them he wants to do it to make Lelouch's "final resting place" peaceful for him, for the younger brother who never knew how much Clovis cared for him. Euphemia tells Clovis that Lelouch sent her a letter and mentioned making friends with a boy his age in Japan. Clovis says that he thinks he should be gentle to the Elevens in that case, since Lelouch had a friend among them.
Bot Cornelia and Schneizel tell him that he can't let himself be soft, and that a viceroy should be ruthless. So he's a weak-willed person who has essentially been told that his actual skills and talents are worthless, and the only thing he could do that would be worthwhile would be to become a ruthless tyrant.
Keep in mind that he is a sheltered Britannian royal who probably has never been exposed to ideas other than what the empire wants everyone to believe. While it's true that everyone has choices in live, and no one has to order a massacre, it's also true that if every single piece of information a person receives points to one conclusion, it's incredibly unlikely that they would be able to think of an alternative on their own.
The ability to think on that level is what sets people like Lelouch and Schneizel apart from the rest of humanity - and Euphie is also a lot closer to it than most people give her credit for. But for the rest of them? If you look at how their information is being manipulated, you realize that they don't need to be condemned, they need sympathy.
Nina's, ahem, "romp" with Table-kun seems extremely out of place and, when I was watching with my father, embarrassing After Lelouch accidentally geasses Euphemia into slaughtering the Japanese, we get a shot of the Emperor watching the massacre and laughing maniacallydeclaring, "You are worthy of being called my child now!
But then in R2 we find out that the Emperor already knew quite a bit about Geass and what Lelouch was up to. Meaning he probably guessed that Lelouch geassed Euphie, but thought it was done intentionally in order to stir up anti-Brittanian sentiment. That's when you realize, the Emperor wasn't cheering on Euphemia's Ax-Crazy rampage, he was cheering on Lelouch's ruthless manipulation of his sister and the Japanese population.
He still comes off as a bastard, but a very different kind of bastard. Plus, in the original Japanese episode, the subtitles show "He did it! He really did it! Not likely; Japanese does not differentiate pronouns by gender. There are no specific words for "he" or "she". Actually, there are "kare" and "kanojo", respectivelyit's just that they are not used very often. However, in that case if I heard correctly Charles used the word "yatsu", which is gender-neutral.
On the other hand, given the context, who else is it going to refer to? Yeah, he was just waiting for her to snap and go kill-crazy all on her own What in often considered one of Lelouch's Moral Event Horizons his crossing the line into using Geass to enslave all of Britannia is actually all part of Zero Requiem.
As well as making him seem even more like a heartless tyrant who only uses people as tools, it also and this is the brilliant part completely absolves everyone in Britannia of any responsibility for the subsequent war.
Lelouch makes the world not only hate him, he also makes them feel pity for Britannia for being enslaved, not hatred for them supporting him. And since his plan was supposed to conclude with his death, the survivors would all be free again afterwards unlike Schneizel, who he quite specifically enslaved to Zero.
It wasn't a Moral Event Horizon - even though he had to do it to carry out his planhe was sparing them from any reprisals! Tell that to the love ones of all the people who died during that battle, especially those who Lelouch killed by destroying Mt. He enslaved hundreds of people and then killed them just so peace could be achieved with his own death.
That world was in desperate need of peace, the world might have more technology than real life, but it lacked the maturity of real life earth leaders. Strangelove, had season 2 not ended the way it did. Given a world where loved ones are dead, and one where everyone is dead. Schneizel and Lelouch could have easily talked it out, figured out that no one actually wanted to fight, and simply ended the war settling into an era of peace.
Humanity isn't evil, you don't need to kill a bunch of people to make sure that the rest fall into line. The actions of the Royal Britannia Family where the actions of madmen, and they still haven't fixed the problem of the Britannia family still ruling Britannia.
The family proved that it shouldn't be in charge of a Dairy Queen let alone the largest country in the world. The problem with that is that Schneizel's plan had less to do with fighting Lelouch and more to do with nuking a bunch of cities to force the rest of the population in line with his idea of "peace", which in his view was a simple absence of war. Even if Lelouch and Schneizel recognized that they had similar goals and that Lelouch wasn't truly evil incarnate, Schneizel still held incredibly cynical views about humanity - he believed they were beyond saving, which is the main problem.
Lelouch would have had to deal with him anyway, and Schneizel was good at convincing people to march to his beat. Not that he needed it; even if Lelouch somehow regained the Black Knights' co-operation, their trust in each other was mutually broken. There was nothing that implied that Lelouch had even tried to co-operate to begin with.
I never understood the Ragnarok plan until I watched it again today. The whole thing emphasized Charles' detachment from the human condition. He could have stopped the violence by issuing a few edicts like the abolition of the Numbers system and instead he came up with a cartoony plan that made little sense to everyone else.
Only except the fact that most of the royal family would overthrow him. Everyone says the Euphinator Incident was a Shocking Swerve.
7 Times Lelouch and CC Gave Us “Collywobbles”
It was foreshadowed, though. Honestly I knew something very, very wrong was going to happen in that meeting. I also knew the Geass was starting to act beyond Lelouch's will when he almost geassed someone by accident, and I knew Mao's Geass simply never stopped. But I wasn't expecting this to happen. I expected Euphie to get the Clovis treatment. And then, that's the beauty of it, the show completely distracts us from that sense of doom and even the sense of narrative logic.
Eupohie's unexpected display of competence was so surprising, and she was so sweet, she talked both the viewers and Lelouch into lowering our guard, and forgetting that the story advancing from there would suck I for one was starting to imagine a Pendragon arc, with lots of Deadly Decadent Court scheming and deception and drama and And then, when our head is in the coulds and our hearts open With minimal effort, all that castle of cards tumbles down.
Slightly lazy, but brilliant nonetheless. Remember the weird branching tree diagram at the Geass temple? It's a drawing of neurons. After all, Geass works in relation to people's minds. For characters whose backstory we learn about, it appears that their Geass is a type of Personality Power by granting the character's greatest desire.
Lelouch, having no control his entire life gains the ultimate control over people. Charles, after having his brothers and sisters killing each other due to ambition wants to rewrite history. Bismark, the consummate soldier, gains the ability to see what the enemy is going to do before he does it.
It's even somewhat inverted near the end when Rolo uses his power of manipulating the perception of time to make to preserve his moment of belonging. However, the fact that his power literally revolves around lies and falsities, moreso than any other Geass, shows that in his heart, he always was a gigantic liar, to the point that it was the key trait recognised by Geass. This would suggest a minimum lifespan of at least five centuries. In a special feature included in the series' fifth DVD, she and Lelouch discuss Washington's Rebellion, a failed version of the American Revolution, during which she speaks of participants such as George Washington and Benjamin Franklin as if she had been close friends with both.
In the past, she appears to have observed Suzaku and Lelouch when they were both children, having even interacted with Lelouch at one point, though he doesn't remember their meeting. Her individual experiences have led C. She tells Lelouch that she has been alive so long that she can no longer remember who loves her and who hates her. Due to her nature and history, she has been lonely as long as she can remember.
Lelouch replies, "You're not alone. If you are a witch, then I am a demon. This is also seen in the second season, as she kindly teases him more often.
However she claims that she has been selfish, keeping Lelouch alive just so that she could be able to die. In episode 23 of the second season, Suzaku asks her to be Lelouch's shield, defending him from his enemies while Suzaku strikes down those enemies as Lelouch's sword.
In episode 5, she purposely makes use of her contract to make it sound like it was an engagement in front of Nunnally and in one Sound Episode, she said to Nunnally that both she and Lelouch are 'busy' making Nunnally misunderstand.
When left alone, she has sometimes spoken to a previously unknown person through means unknown, which, in episode 23, was revealed to be MarianneLelouch's "deceased" mother, although in episode 19 it appears that she is talking to V. According to the DVD Magazine 02, she is talking to more than one person when she seems to be talking to herself. This is often used for comedic effect.
Her love for pizza is so strong that she is willing to risk herself being captured, twice nearly exposing herself to get a piece of a giant pizza being made by the Student Council which is ruined both times ; both Lelouch and Kallen sometimes refer her as "Pizza Girl".
In addition to this she is an avid collector of Cheese-kun related merchandises and is often seen hugging a Cheese-kun plush doll. During the planning stages of Code Geass, C. However, some closed captions sometimes refer to as Cecile. Character History First Season C. Suzaku quickly puts his own gas mask on Lelouch's face, but to their surprise a restrained green haired woman, C.
Before they can get answers, Suzaku's superiors come and tell him not to question his briefing, and to shoot the "terrorist", Lelouch. When he refuses, he is promptly shot in the back. Just as they seem to have evaded detection, Lelouch's phone rings, giving him away. As they're about to kill him, C. A desperate Lelouch now thinks of his impending death. He is grabbed by the hand by C.
