Hello summoner, for this edition, we have the Mecha skin line. These skins exist in a world where humanity had to defend itself from titanic kaiju attacking them from the sea. No, it is not the same as the Mecha Kingdoms universe. No, it is not related to the Battlecast universe, in fact, this universe exists on its own.
Have you seen the movie, Pacific Rim? If you haven’t, you should see it because this skin line drew its inspiration from that movie. Monsters called kaiju have risen from the bottom of the sea to wipe humans out of existence. To fight back, the humans created Mecha combat units as huge as the kaiju.
Did it work? Did the humans win the war? Well, since the story is slowly unraveling to us, all we are sure of right now is that the war isn’t over.
Mecha Zero Sion
Sion was created for the most terrifying kaiju. This unit fights till its opponent(s) lay scattered and broken.
The ultimate ground-based mecha unit, 0-SION becomes like a freight train once given a combat directive, and will literally stop at nothing to dismantle an opponent – no matter how much damage it takes. There are lingering concerns that it could go rogue, but so far these worries have been unfounded.
The moment Malphite was completed, humanity knew it gained a force capable of turning the tide in their favor.
Designated M-2, the “Mecha Malphite” unit is a massive, bipedal fortress capable of turning into a planetary drill-making it the ultimate defensive option when faced with new and powerful kaiju. A single punch from its gauntlets can blow holes through thick titanium sheeting, and such attacks have felled countless monsters.
This unit works best when deployed to hunt down kaiju.
Designated RNGR-7, the “Mech Rengar” unit is the second stealth-based unit developed for urban combat. Bereft of its own warping technology, the RNGR can transform into a car for additional mobility.
No matter how unique Khazix’s opponent is, this unit will adapt to it and emerge victorious.
Designated K-ZX, the “Mecha Khazix” unit was the first of the mecha line to be deployed against the Kaiju threat. Due to its smaller size, it functions best in urban environments, adapting on the fly to threats against civilian populations.
Mecha Aurelion Sol
Aurelion Sol is only deployed for the direst of kaiju. However, it turns out that the unit is more of overkill for its opponent.
Designated ASOL-13, the “Mecha Aurelion Sol” is a gigantic, mobile mothership carrying tens of thousands of personnel, attack fighters, and ground-based anti-kaiju vehicles. Buried within its hull are a vast array of weapons, making ASOL-13 more than a match for even the most gargantuan kaiju.
Aatrox’s blade is capable of cutting through the thickest of kaiju shells or hide.
Designated ATRX-1, the “Mecha Aatrox” unit was developed in response to ‘gliding’ kaiju with the capability of limited flight. In addition, ATRX-1 wields a thermal blade that can turn residual light particles into a heated cutting edge.
I find the Mecha universe exceptional in the versatility of units developed by the humans of this world. More characters are yet to be released but when they drop, I am sure we’ll get more updates on the state of the world. Another skin line that speaks of defenders is the Guardian of the Sands.
