The Zehirut is a fictional robot in the Super Robot Wars series. It has appeared as an enemy unit in Shin Super Robot Wars, Super Robot Wars Alpha, Super Robot Wars Alpha 3 and the Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation series. Due to the protean nature of the mecha, it has appeared in three distinct aspects in the franchise.

Zehirut (Humanoid)Edit

The first Zehirut appeared in Shin Super Robot Wars and Super Robot Wars Alpha. In both games, it was the personal mount of Laodicea Judecca Gozzo, commandant of the Seventh Ze Balmary Imperial Inspection Fleet, otherwise known as the Aerogaters.

AppearanceEdit

The humanoid Zehirut is colored deeply in purple and appears to be made entirely of crystals. It has a pair of orange-tinted winglike projections. Its only handheld weapon is a crystalline sword, and its face is said to be fashioned in the likeness of the Balmarian god, Zehirut. Many Super Robot Wars players have commented that it appears to be sticking out its tongue.

Technical And HistoricalEdit

The Zehirut was designed as the nucleus of the fleet's colossal Hermóðr-class warships. It serves as the power source and main computer of the entire ship. The unit itself is only used in dire circumstances, such as the destruction of the flagship, but when it is used, it can turn the tide of the battle on its own.

The Zehirut is made up entirely of Zehirut Crystals, nanomachine-like particles that can reproduce, repair themselves, generate energy and even gain sentience in large quantities. Because of this, the mecha constantly generates its own power without any fuel requirements. Its Quantum Pulse Engine simply harnesses the waves of energy that the crystals constantly radiate. The Zehirut can also repair itself when damaged, due to the crystals' reproductive nature, but despite this property, the unit itself cannot be mass-produced. A limiter device on the mother crystal prevents the Zehirut from reproducing itself more than four times.

The Zehirut's most incredible feature is its ability to change its shape, depending on the nature of its opponents. In Alpha, the Zehirut took on a relatively small form, in order to challenge the protagonists. This shapeshifting process, however, takes a lot of time to complete and cannot be done at will. The Zehirut usually changes its configuration in the belly of the ship it commands, while the fleet observes its opponents with unmanned probes.

SpecificationsEdit

Code Name: Nightmare Crystal

Height: 67.2 meters

Weight: 523.1 tons

Main Power Source: Quantum Pulse Engine

Armor Material: Zehirut Crystal

Defensive System: Gravity Territory Barrier

Weapon Systems:

  • Cross Blade
    A handheld sword formed out of Zehirut Crystals.
  • Hexagram
    A wide-area energy attack capable of damaging multiple enemies.
  • Ald Laser
    An immense burst of radiation, possibly gamma rays, from gunbarrels mounted on the Zehirut's wrists.
  • Omega Wave
    A time-space-bending energy shot out of the Zehirut's palms.
  • Zehn Gebote
    "The Ten Commandments". In Alpha, the Zehirut maxes out its power output (as it does this, a ghostly image of the deity Zehirut appears) and fires an energy projectile at its victim, trapping it within a vortex of energy. The Zehirut then appears to grow to an immense size (this is probably just an illusion) and closes its fist around its victim. The victim is then crushed into nothingness by the swirling energy ball. In Super Robot Wars Alpha for the Sega Dreamcast, the giant Zehirut illusion crushes the victim with the point of its Cross Blade instead, stabbing it from above.

Zehirut EvedEdit

A wide-area extermination aspect of the Zehirut. This form appeared in Super Robot Wars Alpha 3, but was mentioned in Super Robot Wars Alpha.

AppearanceEdit

In this form, the Zehirut has grown to an immense size, possibly anywhere from 100 meters to a kilometer in diameter, and has lost its humanoid shape. The only remaining resemblance to its humanoid form is its face. The rest of it is a giant, amorphous crystalline mass.

Technical And HistoricalEdit

The Zehirut Eved is the nucleus unit of the fleet's Hermóðr-class flagships. However, it has been reconfigured to include weapons designed for engaging multiple opponents. Since the Ze Balmary Empire was fighting the Buff Clan and the STMC in Alpha 3, all existing Zehirut were reconfigured into this monstrous form. Before Alpha 3, the Eved aspect was used in the war against the Zentradi, from Super Dimensional Fortress Macross. The Zentradi fleet was so vast that the humanoid form was useless, having been designed more for mech-to-mech combat than anti-ship warfare. The Zehirut Eved single-handedly destroyed the Zentradi flagship, sealing the Zentradi defeat.

Strictly speaking, there were originally only seven Zehirut. However, they can be mass-produced if the limiters on their mother crystals are deactivated. Keisar Ephes produced large numbers of Zehirut Eved units, each of them piloted by his demonic Neshamah.

SpecificationsEdit

Height: Unknown

Weight: Unknown

Main Power Source: Quantum Pulse Engine

Armor Material: Zehirut Crystal

Defensive System: Deflect Field

Weapon Systems:

  • Ald Laser
    An intense burst of radiation, possibly gamma rays, fired from the Zehirut Eved's mouth.
  • Zehn Gebote
    "The Ten Commandments". The Zehirut's crystal mass breaks apart into nine shards, each one orbiting around the face. Each shard fires a huge energy beam, while the face fires another beam from its mouth.
  • Meth Hazon
    "Death Vision". A wide-area shower of crystals that deals immense amounts of damage while disabling weaponry.

SeptuagintEdit

This terrifying form appeared in Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation and Super Robot Wars Original Generations. After Levi Tolar's defeat, the protagonists find out that Meteor-3, the extraterrestrial asteroid that crashed landed on Aidoneus Island, was actually a large mass of Zehirut Crystals.

AppearanceEdit

The Septuagint does not have recognizable features -- it is nothing more than a gigantic, misshapen mass of purple, green and reddish-pink crystals. It has no face, arms or limbs. It is self-aware and can communicate, and often refers to itself as The Final Adjudicator.

Technical And HistoricalEdit

The Septuagint is not considered a true Zehirut unit. The Zehirut units are the cores of the Empire's Hermóðr-class warships and serve as emergency superweapons, should the flagships be compromised. The Septuagint is an emergency weapon as well, but it is meant to eradicate a sample race, in the event that the race grew too strong for the invading forces to contain and assimilate. The Septuagint was originally sent to Earth in the form of Meteor-3, but when Levi's Judecca was destroyed, the Septuagint activated and began assimilating the fleets that were guarding Aidoneus Island. It uses its Zehirut crystals to absorb its victims, using their mass to increase its own.

What makes the Septuagint truly terrifying is its ability to manufacture Balmarian units from its Zehirut crystals, including Huleh-class warships. The downside to this reproductive cycle is that it takes five minutes to complete. In the final battle of Original Generation, the Septuagint began to grow Judecca-class mobile weapons, which would have easily wiped out the protagonists. Had it not been destroyed, the Septuagint could probably have single-handedly exterminated all life on Earth.

SpecificationsEdit

Code Name: Meteor-3

Height: Unknown

Weight: Unknown

Main Power Source: Quantum Pulse Engine

Armor Material: Zehirut Crystal

Defensive System: Warp Field

Weapon Systems:

  • Energy Drain
    The Septuagint fires beams that function as energy conduits, siphoning the energy from its victim's reactor.
  • Crystal Masmer
    A deadly shower of crystal shards breaks off the Septuagint and tears the enemy to pieces.
  • Omega Wave
    An intense pulse of radiation that destroys everything in its path.
    • The animation for this attack in Original Generations has the Septuagint crash itself to the Earth, breaking the ground around its target, plummeting it deep into the planet. The Septuagint follows it down and begins to charge energy from its core. Upon release, a powerful beam of energy blasts its target, sending it beyond the Earth's surface, all the way into outer space, where the target explodes from the attack.
