Gundam Wing enjoys a hefty helping of popularity in the eyes of western otaku alongside with its brother, Gundam SEED (whether this is a pro or not, is up to the viewer). Wing can owe its success to one of many things. It began its American broadcast just as anime was starting to peak to the next generation, a large and somewhat epic plot contrasting many simple episodic American cartoons or, Wing could simply owe its success to the bad assery of Wing Zero (say what you will - those wings trounce 90% of the Gundams made).

Even though the characters tend to have more one-dimensional personalities, it’s used effectively in a way where they can be distinctive and stand out, and serves as a motivation to develop the characters in their own way. All sides of the conflict have characters that have beliefs in why they do what they do, and you can sympathize with them. Certain characters will consistently change because a new revelation or turn of events will unveil that will impact them, and you can say it’s a reality of politics and war which I think is presented in a less complex manner in comparison to Tomino’s Gundams. read more

Gundam Wing was the series that helped popularize the Gundam franchise here in America as it was the first series in the franchise that was aired via Toonami. But in terms of the amount of praise a number of fans have given the series, it is definitely overrated as the series overall is an average one that is trying to be grand with its plot yet is quite sloppy and unoriginal in its execution. A good amount of the writing for the plot is quite sloppy where logic is thrown out the window in vain attempts to create drama to hook in the audience at read more

Gundam Wing can be credited with garnering new fans to anime during the 90s boom, where a great deal of titles were imported to the west. It was also responsible for popularizing the Gundam franchise to western audiences as well. With that being said a great deal of nostalgic value can be associated with the title which can often lead to many praising it without proper pretext. While Gundam Wing's production values have certainly stand the test of time the script on the other hand was not so fortunate. Overwrought with needless plot manipulation, contrived idealistic monologues and 1 dimensional archetypes, the way everything is read more

Both are centered around conflicting countries/worlds with deep racial ties (Elevens vs Brittanians, Earth vs Colonies). The main characters are young men and women who are torn between two worlds both morally and on the battlefield, and must deal daily with moral ambiguity. All conflict in both series are mostly settled by mechanical suits and politics is the motive behind every move.

Both are about a group of young Gundam pilots part of a secret organisation who take on the forces of the Earth in order to achieve peace. The main difference is that the pilots from Gundam Wing seek to protect their home while the pilots from Gundam 00 seek to eradicate war. 
reportRecommended by Arch-Defender
Both shows have similar plot (Earth vs Colonies) as well as "Freedom fighters" Cast and a group of Gundams as well. Mecha design are almost similar in terms of Gundams and the action is great as well.  
reportRecommended by Rikudo14
Both deal with the ideology of war and peace, conflicts that will lead to war, political affairs, cycle of hatred, corrupted world, war to end all wars, and characters fighting through the morality of good, evil, or neutral. The only difference is that in Gundam Wing, there are mecha, space, idea of peace that is obtained through pure pacifism and conflict, and earth and colonies and in Naruto, there are shinobi nations, war and peace including understanding which the cycle of hatred will break one day, prophecy, jutsu, demons, ninjas, and supernatural powers. Also both have mysterious characters who conceal themselves to seek a goal  read more

Edward Elric and Duo Maxwell are similar. If you've seen the original FMA and/or GW, watch FMA Brotherhood! You'll find some similarities in this show! 
reportRecommended by Rikudo14
Both series involve the second half of the story with defeat and uprising of the main characters as well as some new upgrades.
