The Awakening Sword is Phase-11 of Mobile Suit Gundam SEED.


Le Creuset launches an attack on the Archangel. Kira's desire to protect his friends awakens an unknown almost berserker ability. He single-handedly defeats the attacking Blitz, GAT-X103 Buster, and GAT-X102 Duel.

Lacus: "I'm fine, thank you. Your friend treated me very well while I was on that other ship."
Athrun: "Is that right?"
Lacus: "Mr. Kira is a very kind person. And he's very strong."
Athrun: "He's a fool. He insisted that he's not a soldier, yet he's still in that thing. He's just being used! Something about his friends, he says! Because his parents are naturals. That's why..."
Lacus: He said he would rather not fight against you."
Athrun: "Same here! Why should I want to?!"

Lacus Clyne and Athrun Zala talking about Kira Yamato, Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, The Awakening Sword

Lacus: "You always have that bitter expression lately."
Athrun: "I can't exactly fight a war with a big smile on my face."

Flay: "We're entering another battle, but we'll be all right. Because Kira will fight to protect us."
Elle: "Really?"
Flay: "He's gonna go and beat up all the bad guys."

Flay Allster's words to Elle to manipulate Kira, Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, The Awakening Sword

"That's right. We must have him beat them all up."

Mu: "Why... No. You're unbelievable."
Kira: "Not really."
