Job John (ジョプ・ジョソ Jobu Jon?) was a minor character in the Mobile Suit Gundam TV series and movie trilogy. He serves as a designated pilot of the Gunperry Transport Plane. He first appears on Luna II. Despite being a minor character aboard the White Base, Job makes frequent appearances among the crew and frequently interacts with the primary characters. He prominently shown in all shots where the full crew is assembled. He also makes frequent appearances performing various roles throughout the ship and has voiced dialogue comparable in volume to the bridge operators, though less of it being in the form of status reports.


Being a minor character of Mobile Suit Gundam and serving the role of being essentially a Federation extra on the White Base, Job does not get much character expression or development. He would seem to be fairly emotionally stable and not as prone to emotional moments as characters such as Amuro Ray and Hayato Kobayashi. He is loyal, but somewhat lacking in acute awareness.

Little of Job's history is known. His first major appearances are near Luna II. Despite the fact that he wears a Federation uniform, it is likely that he was a civilian living on Side 7 as he was never addressed as a potential candidate for MS piloting and not addressed as a cadet as in the cases of Ryu Jose and Hayato.

While no one specific role was shown for Job during the series he served a number of roles throughout the series. He initially fields as a pilot of the Gunperry along with Ryu during the brief cease fire with Garma Zabi when they, along with Amuro, Kai and Fraw Bow "crash land" the Gunperry in an effort to discretely unload the fleeing civilians. When Sayla Mass first sortied he was shown as manning the hangar controls and reveals that he had assisted in her launch believing she had orders. When Ramba Ral boards the ship he is seen with a pistol prepare to intercept incoming troops. After death of Ramba Ral, Crowley Hamon returned to avenge him Job briefly piloted the RX-75-4 Guntank before it was upgraded to a one pilot mobile suit. He later serves as a guard for the central hangar when two Zeon spies come aboard the ship, believing them to be civilians, he follows orders to guard them while their plane is repaired and not allow them access to sections outside the room adjacent the hangar. Later in the same episode he is confirmed to be an alternate pilot when Kai Shiden asks why he isn't manning the Gunperry, the response being that he is preoccupied manning a turret. Job's last major appearance was when the White Base crew was receiving orders at Jaburo. While he did go into space (as evidenced by Bright issuing orders that included him). He is not shown on the launch with most of the crew during the series/films final sequence. He may have been aboard the other launch. His voice actor is credited for his role in Mobile Suit Gundam III: Encounters in Space, thus further evidencing his continued role in the final stretch of the story.

While Job does not appear in any series after Mobile Suit Gundam, a researcher named "Job" appeared in the Mobile Suit Gundam F90 manga. While his last name is never given, it is likely in fact that it is Job in his later years. His last name John was later confirmed in the Gundam G Generation Spirits video game.
