Just a thought on Code Geass

So is it me or is this show a play on Arthurian myth? With Lelouch as Mordred, CC as Morgan Le Fay against Arthur (Euphie) and Lancelot (Suzaku)?

  1. I’ve heard it compared to a game of chess before, with the characters as representing specific pieces. Lelouch as the King, Cornelia would be the Queen, Suzaku would be the Knight, CC as the Bishop… I don’t know much about chess so I’m not sure how it works, but Code Geass does seem more allegorical than it lets on, doesn’t it?

  2. I’m of the opinion that it’s not – the Arthurian nomenclature is a conscious choice by the Britannian military, and there are simply too many Arthurs to easily draw comparisons, but I could very well be wrong.

  3. @ bettynoire – It does seem pretty allegorical. I can see the whole chess comparison too.

    @ animanachronism – Yeah I can see that. I thought I’d stumbled on something there 🙂
