The PTX-007 Gespenst MK II

The Gespenst is a fictional robot in the Super Robot Wars series. The name Gespenst is German for Spectre. Along with the Cybuster, the Gespenst is one of the most widely used robots in the series. It has appeared as a playable unit in Hero Senki: Project Olympus, Battle Dodgeball 2, Super Robot Wars 4, Super Robot Wars F, Super Robot Wars F Final, the Super Robot Wars Alpha series, the Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation series, and Another Century's Episode (produced by Banpresto and From Software). It has also made appearances in Super Robot Wars Advance, Super Robot Wars Impact.

AppearanceEdit

The Gespenst has a very humanoid appearance. Its most prominent features are its wide, flared shoulders, long, back-curving antenna on either side of its head, and the three "stakes" mounted on the left arm of the machine. The Gespenst Mk-II is the only unit to sport a variety of colors, where blue is predominantly the color used.

Technical And HistoricalEdit

In the Super Robot Wars series, the Gespenst is designed and used as a cheap, mass production unit (similar to the RGM-79 GM in the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise), although there have been several variants rolled out from the production line that are on par with other real robots. The first Gespenst appeared in Hero Senki: Project Olympus, in the form of a battle armor, rather than as a full-scale mech. This Gespenst was used by Gilliam Yeager, while part of the player's party, but eventually becomes the party's enemy. Through a merging with the System XN, Gilliam's Gespenst becomes the PTX-001XNG XN Geist. This Gespenst armor and Gilliam return in Battle Dodgeball 2, where he joins Fighter Roar, Emi and the Dark Brain as the God Factory Team.

In the Classic Timeline, either the PTX-001 Gespenst Type-R or the PTX-002 Gespenst Type-S will be the main character's starting mech in Super Robot Wars 4 or Super Robot Wars F. In Super Robot Wars F or Super Robot Wars F Final, the player will later receive the PTX-007-1 Gespenst MK II Type-R or the PTX-007-2 Gespenst MK II Type-S. Gilliam returns as a non-playable character, piloting a Gespenst MK II Type-R in both Super Robot Wars F and Super Robot Wars F Final.

In the Alpha timeline, the Gespenst is mentioned during an intermission in Super Robot Wars Alpha, where the factory that was used to manufacture the RPT-007 Gespenst MK II M was destroyed by Aerogater forces. In Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden, a group of Gespenst MK II Ms make an appearance during a certain scenario. In Another Century's Episode, Gespenst MK II M is a player usable-mecha.

In Super Robot Wars Advance, the RPT-010 Gespenst MK II M is the basic mass production unit used by the Shadow-Mirror faction, though in the Advance universe they enter into, the Gespenst is overshadowed by the Dragoon units of Metal Armor Dragonar. The Gespenst MK II Ms of the Shadow-Mirror look exactly like the RPT-007 Gespenst MK II M, and uses the same armament as the Gespenst MK II Type-R, but given flight capability.

In Super Robot Wars Impact and Super Robot Wars Compact 2, the main original mecha are the PTX-003C Alt Eisen, intended to be the Gespenst MK III, and the PTX-007-3C Weiß Ritter , a customized Gespenst MK II.

In Super Robot Wars MX, Gespensts appear in a flashback.

In the Original Generation timeline, the Gespenst is the primary production line of mechs for the Earth Federation Army. In this timeline, the amalgamation of all previous Gespensts in previous timelines make an appearance, except the XN Geist. Also, the RPT-007-TT Gespenst MK II TT makes its debut in Original Generation, as well as the PTX-003 Gespenst Type-T and the PTX-007-3 Gespenst MK II Type-T. However, by Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation 2, the Gespenst has been replaced by the Huckebein MK II M as the basic mass production unit, although the Gespenst is still in use by some pilots. Likewise, in Original Generation 2, the Shadow-Mirror makes use of the Gespenst as a mass production model, before replacing it with their own line of machines. In Super Robot Wars Original Generations, the PTX-001RV Gespenst Type-RV appears, with Gilliam Yeager at the helm of the machine. Super Robot Wars Original Generation Gaiden reveals the new RPT-007 Gespenst MK II M Custom. Meanwhile, Super Robot Wars Original Generation: The Inspector features the Gespenst Type-SA, a customized Type-S that, in its first appearance, sports a horn on its head and arm-mounted dummy stake, intended to evoke the Alt Eisen's Heat Horn and Revolving Stake.

Its paint job is also heavily reminescent of the Alt's. In its second sortie, the dummy stake is replaced with a second Plasma Cutter, as on the standard Gespenst, and it is further upgraded with a prototype high-mobility backpack. The Type-SA is first piloted by Kyosuke Nanbu while the Alt Eisen undergoes repairs during the operation to recapture Riksent, then again after the Alt is destroyed by Axel Almer's Ash Saver.

SpecificationsEdit

XN Geist SpecificationsEdit

Gilliam Yeager's personal Gespenst unit, after fusing with the System XN, becomes the XN Geist. This machine loses  its original humanoid shape, and evolves into a gigantic size machine .

The first humanoid mobile weapon and the first in the Personal Trooper line. The Type-R (where the R stands for Rapidity) focuses on high mobility and speed, although armor is sacrificed for its movement capabilities. Since it was the first in the Gespenst line, the Type-R would heavily influence future Gespensts and Personal Troopers created after it.

Height: 21.2 meters

Weight: 75.2 tons

Weapons Systems:

  • Split Missile
    Standard missiles used for long range attacks. The Split Missile is a pod mounted on the back of the Gespenst which when fired, splits open to reveal a number of submunitions that strike the target.
  • Plasma Cutter
    A standard energy blade used for melee combat. The Gespenst carries three in the buckler on its left forearm.
  • Neutron Beam
    A handheld rifle that shoots powerful neutron blasts long-range engagements.

PTX-002 Gespenst Type-S SpecificationsEdit

The first humanoid mobile weapon and the first in the Personal Trooper line. The Type-S (where the S stands for Strength) focuses on melee combat, with increased armor and equipped with high-powered weapons, but yields less speed and mobility compared to the Type-R. Since it was the first in the Gespenst line, the Type-S would heavily influence future Gespensts and Personal Troopers created after it, as well as a model for the Grungust series of super robots.

Height: 21.2 meters

Weight: 72.4 tons

Weapons Systems:

  • Split Missile
    Standard missiles used for long range attacks.

    A high-powered, short-range beam shot from the chest of the Gespenst Type-S. Similar to the Grungust's Final Beam attack.

PTX-003 Gespenst Type-T SpecificationsEdit

In the Original Generation timeline, this was the third machine to be rolled out in the original Gespenst production line. The Type-T (where T stands for Test) was intended to be used for extensive testing purposes. However, due to a form of production error, this particular Gespenst would be labelled "defective", though it would not be put to waste. Dr. Marion Radom would see to it that this Gespenst would become the basis for the Gespenst MK III design, and had it placed in the production of the would-be ATX Team's line-up of mecha.

PTX-001RV Gespenst Type-RV SpecificationsEdit

What the RV stands for is currently unknown. What is known is that the Gespenst Type-RV is a modification to Gilliam Yeager's original Gespenst, the PTX-001R Gespenst Type R. Under Gilliam's guidance and using Mao Industries' latest technology, along with some suggestions from Kai Kitamura, this Gespenst is remodelled from top to bottom, boasting performance that's comparable to the latest real robots. A large flight unit, equipped with a Tesla Drive, is placed on the back, giving it top-level mobility. A Mega Buster Cannon, a high-powered beam cannon, is added to its surface armament.

Height: 22.8 Meters

Weight: 75.9 Tons

Weapons Systems:

  • Split Missile
    Standard missiles used for long range attacks.
  • Mega Plasma Cutter
    A standard energy blade used for melee combat. It's stored in the center of the three stakes on the units left arm.
  • Vampire Laser
    The RV extends its flight pack, rockets forward, then fires a purpleish-pink laser beam that both damages the enemy and steals its energy.
  • Mega Buster Cannon
    The RV pulls out a large rifle that it needs to hold with both hands. It then proceeds to extend its flight pack, fly into the air, and then fires a massive blue laser beam that pierces multiple enemies.


RPT-007 Gespenst MK II M Custom SpecificationsEdit

MPGespenstMkIIKaiComparison
The personal, customized unit to Kai Kitamura's existing Gespenst MK II M, this Personal Trooper was developed for the Halloween Plan. Equipped with a Tesla Drive for flight, Plasma Generator, and a pair of Plasma Bucklers that replaces the Plasma Stakes, this machine greatly excels in close-range combat, and built to the specifications for Kai, which goes greatly with his fighting style. A few of these units would also be handed down to members of the Cry Wolves squadron, along with a handheld F2W Cannon, for long-range, enemy bombardment.

Height: 21.9 meters

Weight: 78.5 tons

Weapons Systems:

  • Split Missile
    Standard missiles used for long range attacks.
  • Jet Magnum S
    An attack exclusively for Kai Kitamura, the Plasma Buckler mounted on the left arm is energized. Kai charges at the enemy and delivers a hard tackle, then rush towards it and proceeds to hammer the target away with multiple jabs and punches, before kneeing the unit into the air, then slamming it back down to the ground with an overhead grapple maneuver. As the enemy bounces off the ground and ascends, Kai gives chase and discharges the stored Plasma Buckler energy against its target and breaks away from the attack, as the enemy explodes.
  • F2W Cannon
    This weapon fires normal beam rounds and cannon shots. The Gespenst MK II M Custom takes out the F2W Cannon and proceeds to pelt its target with a few beam shots, while firing off two pods of Split Missiles, at the same time. With the enemy stunned by the incoming shots and missiles, the Gespenst switches the weapon into its configuration to a long-range beam cannon and charges it up. Once done, a solid wave of energy is fired at the enemy, with a shout of "Discharge!". The target is destroyed, and the cannon folds back into its original position.
  • Jet Phantom
    Charging both Plasma Bucklers, Kai flies headlong to its target, and executes a acrobatic leg drop that momentarily stuns the enemy. The Gespenst MK II M Custom begins to vent plasma energy from its Plasma Generator, and as the energy builds up on the Plasma Bucklers, Kai begins to pummel its target, finally sending it away. With the energy at maximum, Kai delivers a punch with the Plasma Bucklers straight through the enemy. The amount of electrical energy from the discharge is so great, that the enemy crashes to the ground and explodes.

PTX-002C Gespenst Haken/"Phantom"Edit

Black phantom gespenst

The Gespenst Haken is a machine designed to be the personal mech of W00 (Haken Browning). When the ship carrying several of the original W-Numbers ended up on the Endless Frontier, the inhabitants of the world of Formido Heim used data found on the vessel to create a humanoid combat machine in the shape of the Haken, but only about three meters in size. This machine, along with similar machines based on the Alt Eisen Nacht and Weiss Ritter Abend were used in a war against the world of Elfetale, where it acquired the nickname "Phantom". After the war abruptly ended, the three machines disappeared, and for the next ten years were occasionally sighted across the worlds of the Frontier.

The Phantom would eventually be discovered by Haken Browning, who engaged it in combat until it withdrew. It later encountered Cardia Bassibira and followed her commands for a time until a second encounter with Browning and his companions. During their last battle, the Phantom was badly damaged and captured by Browning's party. It was reprogrammed, and recognized Haken as it's operator. During a later confrontation with the Nact and Abend, it would reprogram them to follow Haken as well.

  • Plasma Stake x 3
    Like the other models in the series, the Phantom has three plasma swords/stakes mounted on it's left arm. The central stake is shown to create a large-bladed sword, while the other two are commonly used to form smaller sickles which can be thrown at the enemy.
    • Jet Magnum
      Like the Mk II-M, the Phantom is capable of using the stakes in a charged punching attack.
  • Grand Slash Ripper x 2
    The weapon racks on the Phantom's back are a pair of large folding blades which are thrown at the enemy.
  • Beam Cannon
    A cannon mounted in the Phantom's chest. The color is similar to the Vampire Laser of the RV, but the overall effect is unknown.
  • Ultimate Gespenst Kick
    A combination attack with Haken Browning. Haken and the Phantom attacks the enemy with a combination of gun and blade attacks, and the Phantom finishes with a powerful diving kick and a beam cannon blast
