In the Gundam Seed series, a 'Natural' is a mocking term for an unaltered human, whereas a Coordinator is a human augmentative during their embryonic stage.

Term

Although considered a common for the 'normal' masses living on Earth, the ZAFT forces use this term as an insult to those who have not received modification. Naturals are an average human being, but presumably lack the reflexes to pilot mobile suits.

This disadvantage left the Earth Alliance initially losing the First Alliance-PLANT War.

Notes And Trivia

  • In Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Battle Destiny, the only real disadvantage of a Natural is being unable to pilot advanced MS to full capacity. However, their stats generally grow faster than Coordinators and if they are not converted into Biological CPUs or Extended, being able to freely equip two Passive Skills at a time can potentially turn them into "Coordinator Ace Killers". The combo of the skills "Hatred" (Deals 1.5 damage to pilots of an opposite genetic type) and "Superior Conquest" (Deals 1.5 Damage to Star-branded Ace Pilots) can have them dealing triple damage against the likes of Kira Yamato and Shinn Asuka.
    • In the case of Natural Aces however, the "Hatred" skill has to be swapped for either "Eagle Eye" (Additional 1.2 Damage for Projectile Weapons) or "Fighting Spirit" (Additional 1.2 Damage for Melee Weapons) depending on the player's fighting style.
  • Also in Seed Battle Destiny, some major characters were given unique passive skills to offset MS limitations while retaining Natural status:
    • Mu La Flaga has the "Super Ace" skill which adds +12 to all stats except Stamina.
    • Cagalli Yula Athha has the "SEED" skill. It has no passive stat bonuses as is but when SEED mode is activated at 30% MS HP, all stats get an additional +30.
