Cucuruz Doan (ククルス・ドアン Kukurusu Doan?) is a character from the Mobile Suit Gundam television series.


Cucuruz Doan was a mobile suit pilot for the Principality of Zeon, piloting a MS-06J Zaku II Ground Type. During one battle, his gun misfired, resulting in the death of several civilians. Doan was then ordered to kill the children of the civilians he had accidently killed. But Doan could not bring himself do it, and deserted the army, taking the children with him. He established residence on an island in the Pacific, swearing an oath to himself to protect them.

Shortly after, Amuro Ray, piloting his FF-X7 Core Fighter, shows up on the island. Doan approaches him in his Zaku and asks him to surrender, but Amuro refuses. Despite Doan saying he doesn't want to fight, the two engage in a short skirmish that ends with Doan knocking Amuro out and hiding the core fighter.

Initially, the two do not get along, with Doan refusing to return the Core Fighter to Amuro and Amuro believing him to be an enemy who has brainwashed the children. But when a Zeon force consisting of a P01B Luggun and another Zaku show up and attacks the island, Doan takes Amuro to where he stashed the Core Fighter— behind the waterfall, next to his Zaku— and the two work together to fight off the invaders. Amuro reforms the Gundam and shoots down the Luggun, but Doan tells Amuro to leave the Zaku to him. As Doan explains his relation with the children, Amuro sympathizes with him. He explains that had sworn never to use guns again and instead use what he called "mobile suit martial arts". Doan destroys the other Zaku and throws its remains into the ocean.

Though the fight is over, Doan says he and the children are no longer safe. Amuro uses his Gundam to throw Doan's Zaku in the sea before departing and leaving Doan and the children in peace. Doan tells the children that Amuro did the right thing.[1]



  • In SD Gundam G-Generation GATHER BEAT, Doan is a recruitable character. Amuro must confront Doan in New Yark and try to convince him. He'll run away from the battle. The next stage has Amuro confront Doan on his island, only for Zakus to show up. Here, Doan will somehow utilize the Super Mode used by the G-Gundam characters to drive them off. Later on, if Garrod Ran is able to save Tiffa Adill and the GX-9900 Gundam X, a cutscene will take place where Domon Kasshu will teach Doan "Meikyou Shisui" and defeat the Frost Brothers (one of a possible three times).
  • In SD Gundam G-Generation Advance, Doan is recruitable. Doan can only learn Meikyo Shisui during an extra unlockable stage called "A Girl in a Cage", which is tied into the Blue Destiny side-storyline. Domon must be included in the stage. After Doan has a battle-encounter with Nimbus in the Blue Destiny Unit II, Doan will learn Meikyo Shisui.
  • In Mobile Suit Gundam: Federation vs Zeon Deluxe, Doan's Island is seen in the playable Versus map "Pacific Ocean".
    • In the game's Campaign Mode, a one time-only mission will open up after Garma's death that will allow you to play a mission here to recreate the events of the episode with Doan using only melee attacks.
  • In Extreme VS Full Boost, Doan's Zaku II was added as a DLC character on April 16, 2014. The unit costs 1000 points and, true to its animated appearance, fights primarily by throwing rocks and using bare-knuckle brawling (using some melee animations from Bernard Wiseman's MS-06FZ Zaku II Kai but with the heat hawk removed, a kick similar to Char's Zaku II and an uppercut unique to himself).  It can also summon Amuro's Core Fighter for assistance. In Maxi Boost onwards, Doan's Zaku II was upgraded to a 1500 cost instead. In Extreme Vs 2, Doan now summons the full RX-78-2 Gundam for support rather than just the Core Fighter.
    • In his interactions with other pilots, Doan will be able to recognize Char Aznable, Anavel Gato, Shin Matsunaga and Johnny Ridden by their nicknames. Conversely, both Shin and Johnny find Doan's fighting style to be peculiar due to the lack of conventional weaponry while Anavel will look down on facing a Zaku with his Gelgoog.
    • Doan will comment that Loran Cehack will remind him of Rolland Chuan as the two share a similar pronunciation in name, though he will immediately be surprised to learn that Loran is actually a man.
    • Doan remarks of the Gundam (G-Parts) Amuro's potential, and this is followed-up by his amazement with the Nu or Hi-Nu Amuro's growth in strength.
    • When paired with Shiro Amada, Shiro sympathizes with Doan's wishes to abandon the war in favor of taking care of his orphans, while Doan urges Shiro not to overexert himself as he has someone waiting for him to return.
    • Doan expresses surprise at seeing other Zakus, particularly Lunamaria Hawke's Gunner Zaku Warrior and Mashymre Cello 's Zaku III. He will also want to see Bernard Wiseman's use of melee weapons with the Zaku II Kai.
    • Doan immediately despises the warmongering Ali al-Saachez and calls men like him unforgivable. Similarly, Doan also looks down on heavily armed units.
    • Doan can be startled by the appearance of Zeon's other units such as the Acguy and the Gyan. He will also be unnerved by the movements of Haman Karn's Acguy.
    • If he is teamed with members of either Zeon's forces or the Federation's forces, Doan will simply reply that he will not surrender to either, as well as urging to be left alone as soon as the battle is over.
    • Should he meet one of the series' younger pilots such as Nicol Amalfi or Mikazuki Augus, Doan will be horrified to learn that he is fighting with a child and will be in disbelief should he prevail over them.
    • Doan will show interest over Mobile Fighter G Gundam's units, especially with their specialization in melee attacks and martial arts.
