Weissritter

The Weiss Ritter (Weiß Ritter/ヴァイスリッター) is a fictional robot in the Super Robot Wars series. Its upgrade is the Rein Weiss Ritter. It appears as a playable unit in Super Robot Wars Compact 2 series, Super Robot Wars Impact, and the Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation series. Weiss Ritter is German for white knight (although it's a literal translation and grammatically incorrect; "Weisser Ritter" is the correct form) and Rein Weiss Ritter means pure white knight (although once again, it's a literal translation and grammatically incorrect).

AppearanceEdit

Rein Weiss Ritter

Rein Weiss Ritter Model

The Weiss Ritter is colored almost completely white with blue trim in certain areas. Despite its heavily-ornate appearance, its armor is only half the strength of the original Gespenst, and extremely light in comparison. This allows the unit to use its speed to compensate for the lack of defense in the new armor. The Rein Weiss Ritter looks biomechanical in nature with traces of the white armor plating of the original Weiss but replaced with green, tentacle-like tendrils and red spherical jewels around its chassis. Coupled with four bat-like wings on its back, this gives the Rein Weiss Ritter an unusual, somewhat demonic appearance.

Technical And HistoricalEdit

The ATX Project is designed to set up new Personal Troopers that proves to be the next generation high-spec weapons. A long range combat unit is created using the PTX-007-3 Gespenst MK II as a base. This new unit utilizes a Tesla Drive to fly. It excels at speed/maneuverability and therefore sacrifices armor. This unit carries an array of weapons with its main one being the Ochstan Launcher. The codename for this unit is the PTX-007-03C Weiss Ritter, created and designed by Marion Radom, who originally conceived the idea of a newly-customized Gespenst MK II, although the unit later proves to be too expensive to mass-produce and only one unit is completed. This single unit is given to ATX Team member, Excellen Browning. She takes this as her personal unit in the events of Original Generation and works alongside boyfriend Kyosuke Nanbu and his Alt Eisen. Together, they can perform their signature combination attack, the Rampage Ghost.

In Original Generation 2, after the Einst capture Excellen and her machine, they begin to possess her, which is not difficult due to her body being part-Einst. Her machine is upgraded using Einst technology, boosting the power output (and consequently, the machine's speed) to new heights. 60 percent of the armor is replaced by Einst technology, including the transformable Howling Launcher. After Excellen returns to her teammates, this new machine is designated as the PTX-007-03UN Rein Weiss Ritter. Despite the ATX Team being hesitant to use Einst technology, Excellen utilizes this weapon to its fullest. At the end of the war, after the Einst are defeated, the Einst components on the machine crumbles and reverts it back into the original Weiss Ritter.

In Super Robot Wars Original Generations, the enhancement process of the Rein Weiss Ritter is apparently an alteration of the original chassis of the Weiss Ritter, after an examination done by Ryoto Hikawa and Raji Montoya. Therefore, it does not have any true Einst elements on the machine as the Rein Weiss Ritter does not revert back into the original, thereby allowing Excellen to fully utilize it during the Bartoll attacks, retconning the events of the Nintendo Game Boy Advance version of Original Generation 2.

In the anime Super Robot Wars Original Generation: The Inspector, the origin of the Rein Weißritter remains the same as in Original Generation - an Einst-derived upgrade made after Excellen's abduction and possession by Alfimie. However, like in Original Generations the Weißritter does not lose its Einst-derived upgrade.

Weiss Ritter Abend Edit

Weiss Ritter Abend-Rage Mode

Blue Frame

Data for this version of the Weiss Ritter was found on the computers of the Trilobite-class battleship Neverland by the Orchestral Army. They used this data, along with data from other Personal Troopers, to create three-meter-tall miniaturized versions of the mecha as artificial soldiers in the war with Elfetale. After the war, these Personal Troopers disappeared, occasionally spotted wandering around the Endless Frontier until they were recovered by Haken Browning.

The Weiss Ritter Abend resembles the original Weiss Ritter, but with red trim instead of blue, and larger beam cannons (this may be a result of the change in size). It also has wing binders that can open and deploy beam wings for a slightly more demonic appearance. Its Partisan rifle can also split open to fire a larger blast of energy, and has a cord leading from the back of the rifle, like the tail of the Rein Weiss Ritter.

In Super Robot Wars OG Saga: EXCEED, the Weißritter Abend and Alteisen Nacht both get upgrades. The Weißritter Abend in this installment sprouts permanent demonic laser wings, primarily utilizing a red frame instead of the previous' blue frame except in Rage Mode, where the colors are switched around. Also, instead of using the original's Oxtongue rifle, it uses a new rifle called a Partisan Launcher, as instead of splitting into two sections, it can now split into three. Another detail that, if anything, can be an indicator for future SRW OG games, is that the Weißritter Abend was officially told of as being a Gespenst MK IV variant.

SpecificationsEdit

Weiss Ritter

Height: 21.7 meters

Weight: 60.3 tons

Weapon Systems:

  • Beam Cannon x 3
    Three linked beam guns mounted on the Weiss Ritter's left arm.
  • Split Missile x 12
    These are more advanced versions of the split missiles the normal Gespenst has, stored on the upper backpack that can launch and split open to reveal smaller missiles.

This plasma sword is the Weiss Ritter's only melee weapon.

  • Plasma Cutter
  • Oxtongue Rifle -- The Weiss Ritter's main weapon is a long, heavy rifle that can fire both solid rounds and energy blasts. The beam cannon has a longer range, but the solid rounds are more powerful.
    • Oxtongue Launcher E (Energy mode)
      Excellen sets the Oxtongue Launcher to its energy mode and fires it as an energy cannon.
    • Oxtongue Launcher B (Bullet mode)
      Excellen sets the Oxtongue Launcher to ballistic mode and fires solid cannon rounds at the target.
    • Oxtongue Launcher W
      In this mode, the Weiss Ritter can freely use both the E and B modes. Excellen fires a series of cannon rounds followed by an energy blast. The Original Generation 2 version of the attack also fires Split Missiles and the Triple Beam Cannon. Called Oxtongue Rifle D (Double mode) the North American localization.
  • Special Attack: Rampage Ghost
    Excellen and Kyosuke's signature combination attack. There are different attack animations depending on the game:
    • In Impact, the Weiss Ritter launches 4 sets of Split Missiles. A successful hit allows the Alt Eisen Riese to deliver its Plasma Horn attack, sending the enemy flying away, followed by a returning attack of the Weiss's Ochstan Launcher E at point-blank range. To end it off, the Alt uses its Revolving Bunker while the Weiss simultaneously stabs the enemy with its Plasma Cutter.
    • In Original Generation, the Alt Eisen rushes in first while the Weiss Ritter fires its Beam Cannon attack. A successful hit allows the Alt to deliver its Heat Horn attack followed by a returning attack of the Weiss's Ochstan Launcher E at point-blank range. To end it off, the Alt uses its Revolver Stake while the Weiss simultaneously stabs the enemy with its Plasma Cutter.
    • In Original Generation 2, the attack animation is the same as Original Generation's, albeit the Weiss using its Ochstan Launcher B attack instead of its Plasma Cutter at point-blank range.
    • In Original Generations, the attack begins with both mecha flying towards the enemy while the Alt Eisen empties its entire arsenal of the Heavy Claymore attack. The Weiss Ritter supports the Alt with the E mode of the Ochstan Launcher. The target is juggled into the air by the shots as the Alt and Weiss position themselves on both sides a short distance away. Both machines then frantically charge at the unit, attacking with the Alt's Autocannon and the Weiss's Triple Beam Cannon before slamming into the enemy from both sides with the Revolver Stake and Ochstan Launcher B, emptying their clips into the unit at point-blank range. The Alt and Weiss retreat away as the enemy is engulfed in a cataclysmic explosion.

Rein Weiss RitterEdit

Rein Weiss Ritter

Height: 21.9 meters

Weight: 65.5 tons

Weapon Systems:

  • Triple Beam Cannon x 3
    The Weiss Ritter fires the energized beam cannons on its left arm.
  • Split Missile x 12
    These are more advanced versions of the split missiles the normal Gespenst has, stored on the upper backpack that can launch and split open to reveal smaller missiles.
  • Howling Launcher -- The main gun of the Weiss Ritter was altered alongside the machine.
    • Howling Launcher E
      Excellen sets the Howling Launcher to its energy mode and fires a large energy beam. In Original Generations, the Rein Weiss Ritter fires countless number of the E-Mode beams, moving swiftly from one position to another so fast that it looks like several mecha, bombarding the enemy with multiple blasts. This attack can hit several enemies at once.
    • Howling Launcher B
      Excellen sets the Howling Launcher to ballistic mode. It then fires large solid rounds at the target.
    • Howling Launcher X
      What the "X" stands for is unknown. This mode transforms the Howling Launcher into a larger (and more intimidating) weapon which mounts three large energy cannons. The Rein Weiss Ritter launches a super charged energy shot to annihilate the opponent. In Original Generations, the Weiss uses its Howling Launcher E to hit its target from several angles at once before it ascends and transforms the Howling Launcher, firing the deadly beam vertically at the enemy. The resulting shot sends the unit crashing to the ground, exploding in a cataclysmic fashion.
  • Special Attack: Rampage Ghost
    Excellen and Kyosuke's signature combination attack. Both the Alt Eisen Riese and Weiss fire their Chaingun and Triple Beam Cannon attack, respectively. The Alt rushes while the Weiss uses its Howling Launcher E attack. A successful hit allows the Alt to deliver its Plasma Horn attack, sending the enemy unit flying directly into the energy beam from the Howling Launcher. The Alt then drives its Revolving Bunker into the enemy, setting off all 6 of its charges, resulting in the enemy flying off. The Weiss returns a Howling Launcher B attack at point-blank range, and with the Alt, simultaneously unleash the Howling Launcher X and Claymore Avalanche attacks, ending the combination attack.
    • In Original Generations, while the Rein Weiss Ritter unleashes a barrage of its Howling Launcher E on the enemy, the Alt charges its Plasma Horn and pierces the unit and sends it flying away. The Weiss returns with a few shots of the Howling Launcher B and the Alt unloads its Claymore Avalanche attack. As the Weiss changes its Howling Launcher, the Alt slams the Revolving Bunker into the enemy and delivers it into the path of the X beam. The impact from both attacks is so great that the enemy explodes in a cataclysmic fashion while the Alt and Weiss looks on from away.
