Neo Russia’s entry in the 13th Gundam Fight relied on raw power. With that power, the GF13-013NR Bolt Gundam could crush other mobile fighters in a bear hug. Aside from its raw strength, the Bolt Gundam also utilized a graviton hammer as its main attack weapon. While the Bolt Gundam was quite powerful, at first the government of Neo Russia wouldn’t allow Argo to even fight. In an ingenious tactic, they drew Gundam Fighters to Neo Russia for a fight and then detained them in prison for the rest of their lives. In this manner they could eliminate their competition and get into the Finals without even fighting. This technique was used until Argo, himself a convicted criminal and former space pirate, fought against Neo Japan’s Domon Kasshu and his GF13-017NJ Shining Gundam. Argo later became a member of the Shuffle Alliance and also trained in the Guiana Highlands, where he developed a Hyper Mode and a new final move: the Zakaretsu Gaia Crusher. This powerful attack could make the ground spike up to either surround an enemy or impale them. Despite a draw with Domon, Argo qualified for the Finals and Battle Royal, and later participated in the final battle against the JDG-00X Devil Gundam.
