Darkwolf, to clarify, mech pilots tend to be well payed experienced mercenaries. Mecha pilots have an overwhelming tendency to be emotionally unstable teenagers. I know, I know, AC and CH are a little different, but I'll say that most (here's that word again for those of you who hate it!) anime revolves around a much younger crowd who can kill those gods of death you describe. Now that I think about it, experience tends to put a giant crosshair over your head, as so many coaches get killed leaving their students to avenge them... but that's true for anything. Let's not forget the whole slew of other Japanese stereotypes you could be trying to make:
-J-pop teen idol
-Rival/Nemisis (these are the guys who actually work to be nearly as good as the main, but can't use the power of love to defeat hordes of enemies. Not exactly a flaw...)
-Crappy support (the Joker, the Fat one, the Even Younger Kid with glasses)
