Technical and Historical Notes

Neo China’s entry in the 13th Gundam Fight was a continuation of thousands of years of martial arts traditions. The GF13-011NC Dragon Gundam was designed to be used by a skilled martial artist, in this case Sai Saici, a student of the ancient Shaolin fighting style. Sai Saici came from a long line of fighters, and his grandfather Sai Feilong represented Neo China during the 4th Gundam Fight in FC 20. The Dragon Gundam was equipped with a variety of weapons that made it a formidable match for any opponent. Its arms, called Dragon claws, were extendable and able to grab an opponent from a long distance and shoot fire. The Dragon Gundam was also equipped with a long braid called a benpatto, which could be used as a close combat stinging weapon. The Dragon Gundam also carried a dozen feilong flags, which were used for the finishing move Houka Kyouten Juuzetsujin. This move involved planting the feilong flags around an opponent to trap them, allowing Sai to move in and finish them off. This nearly unbeatable move was countered by Domon Kasshu, but the match between him and Sai ended in a draw.

Throughout the 13th Gundam Fight, Sai hung around Domon as a friend and member of the Shuffle Alliance. He also trained in the Guiana Highlands and developed his own Hyper Mode and a new finishing move, the Shin Ryuusei Kochouken. This ultimate Shaolin attack created a pair of butterfly wings and made the Dragon Gundam much more powerful, but it also required the sacrifice of the pilot’s life. In a battle with Domon’s GF13-017NJII God Gundam, Sai performed the move but managed to survive. Despite a draw and a loss to Domon, the Dragon Gundam qualified for the Finals and the Battle Royal, and later participated in the final battle against the JDG-00X Devil Gundam.
