When the XXXG-01D Gundam Deathscythe was captured and destroyed by OZ in AC 195, the extremely durable Gundanium-made remains of that mobile suit were taken to OZ’s lunar base and mobile suit factory for storage. The five scientists who built the Gundams that plagued OZ were also at the lunar base, captured and forced to develop new mobile suit technology to secure OZ’s rule over Earth and the space colonies. Despite their apparent “cooperation,” however, the scientists also begin rebuilding the Deathscythe in secret, preparing for the day when captured Gundam pilot Duo Maxwell could return to the battlefield. That opportunity came when the Romefeller Foundation – the political force behind OZ – was split over a number of issues, and the “Treize Faction” of OZ attacked the lunar base, which at the time was still under the control of Romefeller loyalists. During the chaos, Duo managed to escape, taking his rebuilt XXXG-01D2 Gundam Deathscythe Hell to continue fighting on his own. At that time, the Deathscythe Hell was only 70 percent complete; later repairs and field upgrades allowed Duo to complete the resurrected mobile suit, bringing it up to its full combat potential.

The new Deathscythe Hell was a considerable improvement over its original form, with a more powerful twin beam scythe (which mounted a small rocket engine to give it more force when swung against multiple targets), increased speed and mobility, improved hyper jammers, and an “active cloak” system which served as both a optical/visual cloaking system (making the Gundam literally invisible to an enemy’s naked eye) and as an external layer of beam-deflecting armor. These improvements allowed Duo to continue his fight against both the militaristic OZ and the radical civilian White Fang rebels, putting the Gundam Deathscythe Hell on an almost equal footing with White Fang’s newest AI-controlled mobile dolls. Following the defeat of the Mariemaia Army in AC 196, Duo joined the other Gundam pilots in self-destructing his own suit after its mission was fulfilled.
