In post-war Japan, the nation remains unsettled and crime is as big a problem as ever. Despite his sharp mind and keen deductions, "Defeated Detective" Shinjurou Yuuki frequently loses out to his rival, Rinroku Kaishou, whose information network has previously aided many police investigations. However, in spite of his poor reputation, Shinjurou continues to work on every case he's recruited to with his mysterious assistant Inga. With Inga's power to transform into a being capable of forcing any person to truthfully answer one question put to them, the pair uses everything at their disposal to get to the bottom of each crime and reveal the true culprit – even if the reality of who solved the case never reaches the public...
It both series, you have the lead/s, in Code Geass Lelouch and in Un-Go Inga and Shinjurou that use intricate plots to bring down their foes instead of weapons (mostly). The most striking similarity is Ingra's "eye" ability to make a person answer 1 question, and Lelouch's Geass to make people do 1 thing.
As far as personality goes, Lelouch is sort of split into two with Inga and Shinjirou. While Inga is sort of crazy and has the eye power, Shinjirou is smart and calm. So far, I really like Un-Go, and Code Geass is one of my top favorites, so watch them both, no matter what you like.
Amidst the turbulent revolution of 2025 wrought by the GGP government, Rin Ogata only dreams of becoming a ballerina; like her mother before her, Rin’s grace and agility mean she’s destined for success on the stage. However, an injury and the untimely death of her parents quickly shatter her aspirations and, for once, Rin’s existence seems purposeless. That is, until she enters the garage of a club one day and sits astride a RideBack! The RideBack, a motorcycle with arms and the ability to stand upright, offers Rin a new world of boundless movement! What she doesn’t realize, however, is that this club of RideBack enthusiasts is about to get dragged into the bloody war between the GGP and the terrorists intent on overthrowing them. Life may be more exciting now, but it’s also become very dangerous: will Rin’s natural talents as a pilot be enough in a world where racing is not just for glory, but for survival?
Both of these anime are centered around school-age protagonists finding themselves caught in the battle between a New World Order and the rebels seeking their downfall. Both involve a mech (or mech-lite) device that is used on both sides of the playing field, and a guy who refers to people in chess terms. With political tension, bitter rivalries wrapped in the past, and intriguing stories, these anime are quite similar.

Both of these series involve loads of chracters making intricate plans against each other for various motivations. There is action and a supernatural element in both. Code Geass has a lot of high school age characters while Fate/Zero mostly involves adults, and there are more not-so-serious episodes in Code Geass. Code Geass has mechs while Fate/Zero has swords and sorcery. But they both have more plotting and gambits than you can count. If you like that aspect of one, you'll almost certainly like the other.
