Dynamic General Guardian

Dynamic General Guardian

The Dynamic General Guardian are a series of fictional super robots from the Super Robot Wars series. Often called "Double G" units for short, they appear in the Super Robot Wars Alpha series and the series. All units in this series of robots are given the designation "DGG".

DGG-XAM1 Dygenguar

The first unit of the Dynamic General Guardian series, the nihongo|Dygenguar|ダイゼンガー|Daizengā (known as "Dygenguard" in the North American localization) first appears as Sänger Zonvolt's second unit in the 2nd Super Robot Wars Alpha. It reappears in the 3rd Super Robot Wars Alpha, , Super Robot Wars Original Generations and Super Robot Wars Original Generation Gaiden.


The Dygenguar is given a shade of light black accompanied by a light shade of grey. On various parts of its body, yellow armor covers most of its hands, on the shoulders' General Blasters, and the knee spikes. It also has some red color which make up the fingers, lower chest, lower legs, and are highlights along the face. In appearance, the Dygenguar bears the look of an angry, fierce demon prepared for combat, but also maintains a design reminiscent of an ancient Japanese samurai.

Technical And Historical

After the fall of the Divine Crusaders, many of its remnants dissolved back into the Earth Federation Army. The Tesla Leicht Institute (containing many former Divine Crusaders), along with Mao Industries, began working on a new series of machines. The first of these is the DGG-XAM1 Dynamic General Guardian (codenamed, "Double G"), which is supposed to be a unit that would replace the Grungust series as the mainstray super robot mecha. The Double G is superior to the Grungust in many ways and quite formidable, in terms of defensive and offensive capabilities. The story of the Dygenguar's unveiling varies, depending on the game.

In the Alpha universe, this unit is handed to the Alpha Numbers. Sänger Zonvolt uses his Grungust Type-3 to defend the Alpha Numbers' battleships from an attack by Kukuru, which in turn heavily damaged his unit. The Double G is launched, even though its operating system is not completed, and thus cannot use any of its onboard weapons. Luckily, Sänger's old comrade, Elzam V. Branstein, under the disguise of "Rätsel Feinschmecker", appears. Sanger, rebuffed with his statement that he is no longer a man who will fight for vengeance but for his honor once more, asks for the Type-3's Colossal Blade, and Rätsel hands it to him. Sänger utilizes the sword as his only weapon and refuses to have the machine use any of its original weapons. He abbreviates the Dynamic General Guardian's katakana spelling (ダイナミック・ゼネラル・ガーディアン or "dainamikku zeneraru gaadian") into "Dygenguar" (pronouncing it "DaiZenGaa", pronounced similarly to "Dai-Sänger," or "Great Sänger"). Sänger declares his "War God Armament", Dygenguar, to be his new sword to cleave evil.

In the Original Generation universe, the DGG-XAM1 Dynamic General Guardian is more or less a custom unit made for Sänger, manufactured alongside its brother unit, the DGG-XAM2 Aussenseiter. Bian Zoldark, leader of the Divine Crusaders, secretly built the two Double G units, but never finished completing them. It would be left in the hands of the staff at the Tesla Leicht Institute to finish the task. A similar event to Alpha 2 occurs, but with some differences. Sänger and Rätsel participate in a battle to recapture the Tesla Leicht Institute, where many of their comrades are held. While Rätsel infiltrates it, Sänger is busy fighting off the Inspectors' bioroid army, led by Vigagi and his robot, the Galgau. Sänger's Grungust Type-3 is heavily damaged while fighting Vigagi and the Dygenguar is launched out and Sänger attempts to use it, but the machine's operating system has not been fully compiled yet. Before Vigagi can deal the finishing blow, Wodan Ymir, Sänger's combat rival from the Shadow-Mirror, appears and saves him from Vigagi. Because Wodan challenged Sänger, neither of them can die until their score with one another is settled. Wodan then gives Sänger the Type-3's Colossal Blade, and he proceeds to fight Vigagi and his forces.

The Dygenguar's main weapon is the "Colossal Blade", a massive sword shaped like a katana. It can utilize liquid memory metal to allow the blade to grow into a large broadsword for heavier combat. The Dygenguar's cockpit uses a Direct Motion Link System, which allows the mecha to follow the exact movements of the pilot - this is perfect for the samurai-like Sänger, who may now use his Colossal Blade with no restrictions.

Due to the pronunciation of the Dygenguar's name in Japanese engrish, English speaking fans of the series often refer to it as "DaiZengar," maintaining the Japanese "Great Sänger" pun. A follow up conversation also was included in Original Generation 2, whereby members of the SRX Team talks jokingly about renaming the SRX into either "DaiRyusei", "DaiAya", "DaiRai", or the "DaiRaiOh".


Height: 55.4 meters

Weight: 142.7 tons

Weapon Systems:

*Dynamic Knuckle
"The arms can be launched from the base of the elbow to act as a mid-ranged weapon. Its weapon system was disabled before its completion at Sänger's request. After the Colossal Blade is damaged in battle by Shura General Magnaz Ald in Original Generation Gaiden, the Dynamic Knuckle is reactivated so that Sänger may continue to fight."

*General Blaster
"The two circular shoulder plates can fire energy beams. Like the Dynamic Knuckle, the weapon was incomplete at the time of Dygenguar's first sortie and, at Sänger's request, disabled. As with the Dynamic Knuckle, the General Blaster is later completed and reactivated after the Colossal Blade is damaged."

*Guardian's Sword
"A smaller sword apparently mounted in one of the General Guardian's shins that can be used for close-range combat. As with the other weapons, it remained incomplete for a time, disabled by Sanger's request. Like the Dynamic Knuckle and General Blaster, the Guardian Sword is completed and ready for use after Sänger's first battle with Magnaz Ald."

:The weapon systems (and their attack animations) disabled by Sänger are actually hidden in the code of Original Generations, but are made inaccessible, unless the player hacks the game using a cheating device. However, these weapons are made available for use in Original Generation Gaiden.

*Zankantō Denkōsekka (Lightning Speed, Colossal Burst in the English localization)
"Sänger uses the Colossal Blade in its base form with a swift swipe in the air to create a strong enough wind to cut the enemy."

*Zankantō Daisharin (Big Swing, Colossal Spinner in the English localization)
"Sänger uses the liquid memory metal to enlarge the Colossal Blade into a larger naginata-like blade. It then flings it as if it were a boomerang."

*Zankantō Raikō Giri (Thunder Flash Cut, Colossal Thunder in the English localization)
"Sänger enlarges the Colossal Blade into a large broadsword. It then uses it to perform a giant vertical strike from below the opponent and then performing a swift horizontal strike so fast that it is almost invisible to the human eye. In Original Generations, Sänger would perform a series of slashes, before ending with a clean, vertical cut. This attack is also called "Zankantō Shippu Jinrai" by Sänger.":"Shippu Jinrai" is actually the default background music of the third Dynamic General Guardian, the DaiRaiOh.

*Zankantō Un'yō no Tachi (Blade of a Shining Cloud, Colossal Storm in the English localization)
"Sänger enlarges the Colossal Blade to such a point that it's almost too large for the arms to even handle. Sänger lifts the weapon high above the head of the Dygenguar and proceeds to take to the sky. The Dygenguar drops down with a single bisecting slash as a finishing attack."

*Tatsumaki Zankantō (Tornado Zankantou, Tornado Blade in the English localization)
"A flashy and overwhelmingly powerful combination attack between the Dygenguar and the Aussenseiter, piloted by Rätsel. Rätsel transforms the Aussenseiter to its Pferd (German for Horse) Mode and lets Sänger's Dygenguar ride it. Riding towards the enemy as a mecha-scale samurai on horseback, Sänger then strikes with the Colossal Blade in a high-speed horizontal slash, then either cleaves the enemy vertically afterwards (Original Generation 2 version) or spins the Colossal Blade very rapidly to generate a whirlwind that carries the bisected enemy mecha up into the air to explode (Alpha 3 version) before adding a final horizontal slash upon the enemy (Original Generations version)."

DGG-XAM2 Außenseiter

The second unit of the Dynamic General Guardian series, the nihongo|Aussenseiter/Außenseiter|アウセンザイター|Ausenzaitā appears as a playable unit in Alpha 3, Original Generation 2, Original Generations and Original Generation Gaiden.


The Aussenseiter is colored dark black and has dark grey highlighting in various parts of its chassis. It also has red coloring on its shins, ankles, skirt armor, forearms, shoulder plates, and head. One of the Aussenseiter's most distinctive features are two large plates on its shoulders, which can be detached and used as throwing weapons. On the Aussenseiter's head is a white "mane", resembling a stallion's. It also has a detachable black cape on its back.

Technical And Historical

The DGG-XAM2 Aussenseiter is the brother unit to the Dygenguard, built by Mao Industries, with help from the Tesla Liecht Institute. While the Dygenguard is made primarily for melee attack purposes, the Aussenseiter is used primarily for long range bombardment. It is unusually fast and mobile for a super robot, and sports a pair of ranged cannons, hidden under its shoulder plates. The Aussenseiter can transform into a horse for the Dygenguard to ride on to perform their combination attack, the "Tatsumaki Zankantō" (Tornado Blade in the English localization). Aussenseiter means "Outsider" or "Dark Horse" in German - a fitting name, given Rätsel Feinschmecker's tendency to be an unexpected factor to turn the tide when the outlook is bleak.

In Super Robot Wars Alpha 3, this unit is completed at the Tesla Liecht Institute for Rätsel Feinschmecker and is handed to him for his use. As with all of Rätsel's machines, he refers to it as "Trombe", after his own horse back in his home colony of Elpis.

In Original Generation 2, it serves the same purpose: Rätsel retrieves this unit upon his and Sanger Zonvolt's raid of the Tesla Liecht Institute, held captive by the Inspectors. With the Aussenseiter, Rätsel joins in the fight with Sanger, after he receives the Grungust Type-3's Colossal Blade from Wodan Ymir.


Height: 54.9 meters

Weight: 165.5 tons

Weapon Systems:

*Schulterplatte (Shoulder Plate in German)
"The Aussenseiter can throw its shoulder plates as long range cutting weapons.."

*Lanze Kanone (Lance Cannon in German)
"The Aussenseiter uses its ranged cannon, stored beneath its shoulder plates, and fires one round at its enemy."

*Lanze Kanone W
"The Aussenseiter uses both of its ranged cannons for long range bombardments on multiple enemy units."

*Sturm Angriff (Storm Assault in German)
"There are three animated versions of this attack:
**"In the Original Generation 2 version, the Aussenseiter executes its Lanzer Kanone-W attack while rushing straight at the enemy. It then impales the target on the bayonet tip of his right-hand Lanzer Kanone, lifts the enemy up into the air until it is set down on his other side, then fires the Lanzer Kanone at point-blank range, catapulting the impaled enemy away to explode. "
**"In the Alpha 3 version, the Aussenseiter dives into the group of enemies and from within the group it smacks them about with its cannons while in quick and swift motions, it fires them at all the surrounding opponents to deliver decisive shots to all of them."
**"In the Original Generations version, the Aussenseiter dashes forward towards a single target, firing both guns and circling the target before throwing one gun away to fling its cape over its opponent. It continues to fire a few more rounds before impaling the enemy on the bayonet, lifting the target directly overhead and firing at point blank range directly upwards, destroying the cape in the process. Oddly enough, the cape is inexplicably restored by the next attack."

*Tatsumaki Zankantō (Tornado Blade in the English localization)
"A flashy, borderline-ridiculous, yet overwhelmingly powerful combination attack between the Dygenguard and the Aussenseiter, piloted by Rätsel. Rätsel transforms the Aussenseiter to its Pferd (German for Horse) Mode and lets Sanger's Dygenguard ride it. Riding towards the enemy as a mecha-scale samurai on horseback, Sanger then strikes with the Colossal Blade in a high-speed horizontal slash, then either cleaves the enemy vertically afterwards (Original Generation 2 version) or spins the Colossal Blade very rapidly to generate a whirlwind that carries the bisected enemy mecha up into the air to explode (Alpha 3 and Original Generations version)."


The third unit of the Dynamic General Guardian series, the Raioh, and its upgrade, the DaiRaiOh, are one of the protagonist units in Alpha 3.


The RaiOh is a unit colored in bright grey and silver for most of its body, with black in various areas. The design is humanoid, and is rounded instead of the boxiness commonly found in giant robots. Noticeable features include the gold crown-like decoration on the head and the red scarf. It also has ruby-like jewels on many parts of its body, most notably the shoulders and crown.

The DaiRaiOh looks similar to the RaiOh, but has a larger crown, sports extra armor around its chassis and has more extravagant gold highlights around its shoulders, arms, knees and legs.

Many fans have noted that the RaiOh and the DaiRaiOh's designs are likely heavily influenced by the famous Kamen Rider series. Such influences include the crimson scarf and a final attack that involves a powerful kick. Also, the animation prior to the DaiRaiOh's final attack reveals the machine's humanoid faceplate that bears a resemblance to Hongo Takeshi, the first Kamen Rider.

Technical And Historical

The RaiOh is the latest machine in the Dynamic General Guardian series and is designated with the codename DGG-XAM3. This machine, though developed by Mao Industries and the Tesla Leicht Institute, is overlooked by scientist, Minaki Tomine. The RaiOh harnesses lightning energy via plasma drives to power its attacks. Minaki finished developing her father, Kaoru Tomine's Lead Innovative Organic Harmony System and installs it in the RaiOh. Kaoru wants to create a world of perfect soldiers, thus uses the LIOH System to carry this out.

Touma Kanou, a delivery boy, becomes the RaiOh's pilot through a chance of fate. When Balmar begins its second invasion of Earth, he happens to be at Minaki's house while doing his job. He is eventually placed in a situation where he is forced to pilot the RaiOh. After this, he becomes the designated pilot of the machine and is trained by members of the Alpha Numbers. The LIOH System and Touma clash, however -- on one such occasion, it causes Touma to go completely insane. It would take a decisive blow by Sänger in his Dygenguard to stop Touma. After this, even though it is a system that can promise great results, the device is removed. Instead, the cockpit outfits the Direct Motion Link System, which follows the exact movements of Touma's body. Using this system, he invents the "Rising Meteor" attack, which takes full advantage of its new mobility.

A while later, the RaiOh takes immense damage from a battle with Touma's combat rival, Baran Doban of Balmar. Using many of the Dygenguard's spare parts, it is upgraded into the DGG-XAM3C DaiRaiOh, which is a powerful improvement over the RaiOh, sporting better armor and attack capabilities. It is accepted by its peers and fanbase as a true Dynamic General Guardian; to emphasize, in its first sortie, Touma single-handedly used the DaiRaiOh to destroy 100 enemy units. In another sortie with Baran, the face of the machine is smashed. Touma decides not to repair it, and the "scar" stays. In a later battle against Hazal Gozzo of Balmar, Touma is finally able to push the DaiRaiOh past its presumed limits with his new "JinRai" attack, achieving such great power that the LIOH System's abilities are surpassed by Touma's own strength.

The RaiOh's name, written in kanji as (雷鳳) means "Lightning Phoenix", but can also be interpreted as the pronunciation of "LIOH" (as there is no difference between the letters "L" and "R" in Japanese). When the RaiOh is upgraded to the DaiRaiOh (大雷鳳), it becomes the "Great Lightning Phoenix" . The "dai" (大), meaning "big, great", can also function as part of the abbreviation "Dynamic Lightning Over" ("Dainamikku Raitoningu Ohbaa").

RaiOh Specifications

Height: 48.3 meters

Weight: 122.5 tons

Weapon Systems:

*Harken Impulse
"A shot of plasma energy is launched from the leg."

*Counter Break
"The plasma leaders in the arms ignites with electricity to "lasso" the enemy off the ground and pull it towards the RaiOh, delivering a powerful roundhouse kick."

*Lightning Fall
"The RaiOh flies into the air and delivers a charged, lightning kick aimed at the ground that creates a shockwave effect, damaging all targets in its area."

*Rising Meteor
"The RaiOh charges itself up and delivers a series of kicks to its target to knock it high into the air and then delivers a final kick, sending the enemy crashing to the ground in a thunderous explosion."

DaiRaiOh Specifications

Height: 53.8 meters

Weight: 148.6 tons

Weapon Systems:

*Harken Impulse Drive
"Shots of plasma energy are launched from both legs."

*Counter Spike Charge
"The plasma leaders in the arms generate an even greater amount of electricity to "lasso" the enemy off the ground and pull it towards the DaiRaiOh, delivering a powerful roundhouse kick."

*Plasma Spiral Dive
"The DaiRaiOh uses its knee-mounted thrusters to deliver a greater charged, lightning kick aimed at the ground that creates a shockwave effect, damaging all targets in its area."

*Rising Meteor Inferno
"The DaiRaiOh delivers a series of punches and kicks, sending the enemy high into the air. It flies headlong, grabbing its target, and proceeds to hurl it further up into the air. Charging up for a final attack, the DaiRaiOh rushes for a finishing, vertical kick that utterly shatters the target, exploding in mid-air."

"Touma's ultimate attack. With Minaki's approval, the limiters in the DaiRaiOh's plasma drives are released. The faceplate covering the DaiRaiOh retracts, revealing its face and "scar". The energy buildup from the plasma drives forms two oversized wings on its back, and the DaiRaiOh flies towards its target. With a fully charged lightning kick, the enemy is driven back by the force of the attack, following a series of weaker melee attacks, burning the target with its plasma energy. The DaiRaiOh then flies up to the air vertically, releasing the rest of the stored energy and delivers a final downward kick, driving the enemy into the ground, creating a reaction so powerful it forms a pillar of fire from ground zero towards the atmosphere. The DaiRaiOh leaps out of the pillar, as it continues to burn spectacularly.:Interesting to note, the characters for JinRai mean, appropriately enough, "Divine Lightning"."


In both the Alpha and Original Generation timelines, Rätsel mentions there are four Dynamic General Guardian units, but as of the release of Original Generation Gaiden, nothing new on the fourth unit is known. However, it is possbile the fourth unit can be the Compatible Kaiser, since Professor Kisaburo Azuma uses data from the Double G series to rebuild the damaged machine. Still, the Compatible Kaiser does not carry the DGG designation, and suspension of disbelief leaves open the possible existence of a fourth unit somewhere else.
