Grow Up Big And Strong Like Uncle Char And Ray With These Gundam Donuts

By Eugene . March 9, 2014 . 5:00pm

Gundam’s pilots are generally pretty fit looking, but they surely must burn tons of energy getting shot up all the time. Enter the newest creation from the minds at Bandai—the Gundam donut. These tasty treats are available now (thanks, Rocket News) exclusively from any of the Gundam cafés scattered across Japan.


The white Gundam version has a white chocolate coating…


While Char’s Custom Red Zaku is represented in strawberry flavored chocolate. By itself, that probably wouldn’t have done the trick, but adding in the details of the red eye of the Zaku on top of chocolate strips or the antenna and yellow eyes on Gundam mechs helps flesh it out. Yes, these are intended to give you a serious sugar rush.


Each donut costs 320 yen (US$3.20) which sounds a little pricy for the novelty factor, but at least you can tell the world you’re strong enough to eat Gundams for breakfast.


The Gundam cafés are located at Odaiba’s Diver City mall (Which has the only permanent 18m tall Gundam. It even moves. I’ve seen it and it is badass with the sunset), Makuhari Shintoshin’s AEON Mall (pictured, which serves ZEON-themed stuff and opened just last December), Akihabara and Tokyo Station.

    There is like a char version of everything it seems.

    • Not really.

      • Pdugna

        I’ve seen Char shoes,cars,phones,radios,bikes, and etc so yes.

        • Oh I thought you meant in the series.

  • SolRevr

    Looks awesome. I want a chocolate mint flavored Zaku II.

  • VenerableSage

    I bet the Char’s Zaku donut is three times tastier than the average donut.

    • Fox

      It’s not.

      But it does go through you three times faster.

      • TheDarkEmpress

        Staying true to his name “The Red Comet”.

  • Spirit Macardi

    I wonder if G Gundam donuts taste radically different from all the others, but still leave you feeling satisfied.

    • Reiswindy

      Shining Donut!

      • Spirit Macardi

        “Take my dough, my sprinkles, and all of my frosting!”

  • Must have ._.

  • Audie Bakerson

    And yes, the Akihabara location IS in Akiba’s Trip 2, though I don’t think you can enter it.

  • evilkaz

    C-can you import a donut?

    • Spirit Macardi

      Yeah, but you need to make sure your mouth is region free.

  • Hines Green III

    This is the best topic I have ever read.

  • TheDarkEmpress

    It seems like you can’t have a Gundam iteration of anything without also including Char and his famous red/pink Zaku. His Zaku is basically as much of an icon as Amuro’s Gundam is, maybe even moreso as his greatest rival. What I’d really like to see is a lifesize model of his Zaku built to go alongside the Gundam….although….a Zaku does look more like a contemporary war machine than any Gundam ever could, perhaps them building a full-sized Zaku isn’t such a good idea after all…”IT’S A ZEON ZAKU!!!1!”

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Ohh boy. I need to choose between the three times tastier versus the white demon donut?

    Boy, that is one hard choice.
