Technical and Historical Notes

Neo Germany’s GF13-021NG Gundam Spiegel was a ninja-like mobile fighter piloted by the mysterious Schwarz Bruder, a masked man whose true identity was a secret. Schwarz’s GF13-021NG Gundam Spiegel was armed with several melee weapons which suited his fighting style, including the main armament of two spiegel blades that were mounted underneath the arm and deployed in a forward position for combat, similar to tonfas. Schwarz’s lightning fast movements allowed him to use his spiegel blades to score multiple hits on an opponent at any one time. The Gundam Spiegel was also equipped with an iron net and many small throwable messergranz knives. The Gundam Spiegel’s Ultimate Attack, Sturm Und Drang, was performed by Schwarz spinning around rapidly in the air like a top.

Schwarz first appeared in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo after Master Asia revealed to former pupil Domon Kasshu that he was a servant of the JDG-00X Devil Gundam. After the Devil Gundam withdrew from Japan, Schwarz defeated Domon in an unofficial Gundam Fight to prove to Domon how lacking his skills were. He challenged Domon to learn to use a rusty sword to slice apart trees a way to activate the Super Mode of his GF13-017NJ Shining Gundam. When Domon decided to train in South America’s Guiana Highlands, Schwarz maneuvered Domon’s fellow members of the Shuffle Alliance to come to Guiana and train with him. When the Devil Gundam reappeared there, Schwarz was severely injured while trying to protect Domon from Master Asia. After Domon defeated the Devil Gundam, Schwarz appeared in Neo Hong Kong alive and well for the Gundam Fight Finals. As the Finals continued, Schwarz was the first to discover that Wong Yun Fat had secretly transported the Devil Gundam to Neo Hong Kong with the intention of resurrecting it. As the Finals neared their end, Schwarz was assigned to fight Domon’s GF13-017NJII God Gundam in the final match before the Battle Royal. While Domon was able to counter Schwarz’s Sturm Und Drang with his own Sekiha Tenkyouken, Wong’s treachery caused Schwarz to be mortally wounded. After the match, Domon was shocked to see that the unmasked Schwarz looked identical to his brother Kyoji, the pilot of the Devil Gundam. In a hospital, Rain Mikamura learned the truth about Schwarz and Kyoji. Earlier in the tournament, the Devil Gundam defeated the real Schwarz. Using the last of his free will, Kyoji took over Schwarz’s body and used DG cells to create an android copy of himself. He assigned Schwarz to protect Domon and watch over him. During the Battle Royal on Lantau Island, the Gundam Spiegel was destroyed when Schwarz faced the Devil Gundam for the last time before dying himself.
