Gates Capa (ゲーツ・キャパ Gates Capa?) is a fictional character from the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam anime, Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam: Day After Tomorrow - From Kai Shiden's Report, and the Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam Define manga.
Another of the artificially enhanced Cyber-Newtypes produced by the Earth Federation's Augusta Newtype Lab. Gates isn't as powerful as Rosamia Badam, but neither does he suffer from the same kind of mental instability, and Augusta's scientists use him to control and stabilize the erratic Rosamia. Gates usually operates in tandem with the Newtype researcher Loren Nakamoto.
Gates Capa was first seen serving as a wingmate for Rosamia Badam while testing out their Baund Doc prototypes at Side 2, with Gates piloting prototype unit one with Loren Nakamoto as the on-board operator. During this test mission, Rosamia runs off with Kamille Bidan into one of the colonies and Gates pursues them, and ends up fighting Kamille up close before having to bring Rosamia back. He is later seen escorting the further-enhanced Rosamia piloting her MRX-010 Psycho Gundam Mk-II with him in his own Baund-Doc. While Rosamia is searching for the Argama, Gates ends up trying to defend the Dogosse Giar from Reccoa Londe's squadron, but when Rosamia was finally killed, Gates suffered some type of mental backlash before the Dogosse-Giar is ultimately destroyed. His fate remains unknown.
