The AGP-X1 Alus Core Gundam (アルスコアガンダム?) is a mobile suit introduced in Gundam Build Divers Re:RISE and is piloted by Alus. It can also be piloted by the Guard Eye and in this state, it is known as Eldora Core Gundam.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Alus Core Gundam was created independently by Alus thoroughly analyzing Hiroto's Core Gundam. Despite its peculiar silhouette compared to the Core Gundam, the Alus Core Gundam features shared standards and therefore can also dock with Hiroto's PLANETS System's armors. When controlled directly by Alus, the sensor on the Alus Core Gundam's head glows red. Like other One-Eyes' units, this machine can be operated by the Guard Eye, and in this state, its head sensor does not glow and it is known as the Eldora Core Gundam.
- Beam Blade
- Energy can be focused on each hand of the Alus Core Gundam to generate a massive Beam Blade. This blade is directly powered by the Gundam's generator and its output greatly exceeds that of the Earthree Gundam's Beam Sabers.
- Core Spray Gun
- The standard ranged armament of the Alus Core Gundam. Like the one used by the Core Gundam, it can be upgraded into other forms by attaching additional parts.
Special Equipment & Features
- Unnamed Docking System
- Like the Core Gundam's PLANETS System, the Alus Core Gundam can dock with additional armor to change its combat characteristics. As the Alus Core Gundam features shared standards with the Core Gundam, it can also dock with the PLANETS System's armors.
- Alus Earth Armor
- A versatile armor set that changes the Alus Core Gundam into Alus Earthree Gundam.
- v Gundam's Armor
- An omnidirectional offensive-type armor that changes the Alus Core Gundam into Fake v Gundam.
- Earth Armor
- A versatile armor set used by Hiroto's Core Gundam and Core Gundam II. During Alus' invasion of the GBN, he managed to hijack this armor set from Hiroto and used it with an Alus Core Gundam that has an altered head design.
Notes & Trivia
- The final opponents in all full length, animated Build series have been Gundams and the Alus Core Gundam is the first among them not to have traditional twin-eye sensors and a mouth plate. It is also the first in the series to be a dark counterpart of the protagonist's unit.
- The antagonist faction of Richard Williams's 1992 animated film "The Thief and the Cobbler" was also called One-Eyes.
