Technical and Historical Notes

Neo Denmark’s transformable GF13-026ND Mermaid Gundam was specially designed for underwater combat. Though it could fight in the standard humanoid mobile fighter mode, it was much faster and more powerful when it transformed into its fish mode. In mobile fighter mode, the Mermaid Gundam was armed with a mermaid trident, which could also be used to launch a beam net on an opponent to disable them. In fish mode, the Mermaid Gundam’s streamlined body allowed it to move quickly and attack opponents head on. However, despite the Mermaid Gundam’s abilities, it had one critical problem: its frame was damaged beyond repair over the course of the Gundam Fight. Pilot Hans Holger was able to defeat Carlos Andalusia’s GF13-045NSP Matador Gundam in the Finals, but his Mermaid Gundam wasn’t able to hold out against Sai Saici’s GF13-011NC Dragon Gundam. When he was defeated by Sai Saici, Hans and his sister returned to Neo Denmark. After the 13th Gundam Fight ended, Hans returned as part of the World Gundam Federation to defend Earth from the JDG-00X Devil Gundam. Hans’ repaired mobile fighter was aided in the battle by dozens of Mermaid Gundam prototypes.
