In the 25th century, humanity lived in evacuation spaceships following the devastation of Earth in a war five centuries earlier. However, on the Megazone 23 ship, a computer maintained the illusion that its inhabitants lived in 20th century Tokyo. Eventually, the military discovered the truth and began analyzing Bahamut’s data to develop advanced weapons called maneuver slaves. Unlike the more advanced Garland, the Hargan was incapable of transforming on its own and must dock with its arm and leg parts, which were usually transported in a container truck. The Hargan was equipped with a pair of magnetic wire launchers, as well as a rifle and light saber. In addition, it could mount an optional shield. The Hargan was deployed inside Megazone 23, while the Hargan Space Type was used in space to fight the Dezalg, an enemy force from another evacuation ship.
