The Universal Century (宇宙世紀 Uchū Seiki?, commonly abbreviated as UC) is one of the timelines of the Gundam anime metaseries, along with the first timeline to be created.

The Universal Century begins after humans begin to populate space, after construction of the first space colony side at Side 1 was completed. It has been the primary Gundam timeline, although only eight of the 17 animated or live-action projects released since 1995 have been strictly set in this timeline.

The Universal Century science is practical and makes use of true science including the Lagrangian point in space, the O'Neill cylinder as a living environment, and energy production from Helium-3 (named Minovsky Physics).

Universal Century Gundam Animated & Live Action Works (Chronological Order)

Universal Century Gundam Animated Works (In Order of Release)


In a pre-production memo, Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino wrote that the first series takes place in 2066 AD, which would have the Universal Century calendar starting in 1988 AD. However, a "2079" date stamp in the first Gundam series' episode 26 and a "2087" date stamp in Zeta Gundam's episode 8 indicated a 2001 AD starting date. The date stamps were not included in the subsequent movie versions of these series, and these dates have since been contradicted by works not written by Yoshiyuki Tomino.

Presently, it is not clear which A.D year corresponds with U.C. 0001. However, based on a newspaper dated Monday, January 14, 0080, shown in the last episode of the Gundam 0080, by working backwards from U.C. 0080, that would make U.C. 0001 have its January 1 on a Wednesday. Several A.D. years can be pinpointed to have January 1 on a Wednesday which includes, but is not limited to: 1997, 2025, 2042, 2081, 2109, and more. In the Origin continuity, the date Wednesday, June 23 is given during a test for the MS-04 Bugu in U.C. 0077 at A Baoa Qu, which contradicts with the aforementioned date in 0080.[1]

In the Universal Century chronology, the last dated entry of the AD system was 2045 AD, leading to the common misconception that UC 0001 followed immediately afterwards. A few early unofficial sources even listed UC 0001 as 2046 AD (or even 2045, using bad math), but current official materials indicate the presence of a gap of years between the AD and UC calendar systems. Therefore, the first year of the Universal Century calendar is deduced on the official Gundam website in North America as being 2053, 2070, 2081, 2109, 2149, or possibly later, meaning UC 0079 would correspond to 2131, 2149, 2159, 2187, 2227, or later. Using the previous established point (January 1 of U.C. 0001 being on a Wednesday), the earliest year it could've been is 2048 AD.

If Tomino's draft for the Universal Century calendar is correct, it would closely put 2045 in the same place as 0001, and then placing 0079 with 2124. Going from 2045 to 2124 would total 79 years. The same would also apply to the Universal Century, had the calendar began as 0000 instead of 0001. This would make U.C. 0001 start roughly the same time as; or around 2045. This would also explain the single-year gap. With the estimated 40-year time it took to build and complete the first colony, the date would range from 2005 to 2045. As technology advanced, including the advent of the Mobile Suit, the time for building space colonies would be reduced. According to Dafydd Neal Dyar, the Universal Century begins in 2081, with von Braun city completed in 2107, and with Mobile Suit Gundam beginning in 2159.

Since the mid-1990s, new official Universal Century chronologies have avoided the inclusion of AD dates before UC 0001. The following below are series of U.C. and A.D. dates that were once published with Universal Century chronologies:

1990 A.D.
