As the 13th Gundam Fight began, Neo Cuba dispatched fighter Frank Gastro and the GF13-083NCB Arachno Gundam to increase its low ranking from the previous Gundam Fight. The Arachno Gundam took a visual cue from Cuba’s famous 20th century dictator, Fidel Castro. The Arachno Gundam’s armament consisted of six retractable tarantula claws (stored in the back), two head vulcans and one tomahawk. However, the Arachno Gundam never made it far in the Gundam Fight. Early on, Gastro was challenged by Neo France’s George de Sand and his GF13-009NF Gundam Rose. As soon as their fight began, it was interrupted by Neo Japan’s Domon Kasshu and his GF13-017NJ Shining Gundam. Against the rules, Domon proposed that George and Gastro both attack him. Gastro accepted the offer, and his Arachno Gundam’s head was destroyed by Domon’s beam saber. As dictated by the Gundam Fight regulations, Gastro was disqualified and not allowed to continue in the tournament. After the 13th Gundam Fight ended, Gastro returned as part of the World Gundam Federation to defend Earth from the JDG-00X Devil Gundam.
