Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Fuunsaiki is a Mobile Horse, piloted by an actual horse, and is built to enhance a Mobile Fighter's aerial capabilities. Its movement, like all the Gundams in the series, is based on the pilot's movement. It is usually used as a mode of transportation, and is rarely or never seen fighting. The Gundam riding Fuunsaiki must control it using its entire body much like normal horse riding. It can also function as an aerial platform, used as a means of stability, or for movement through space.

The Fuunsaiki first appeared during the Gundam Fight Finals in Neo Hong Kong, controlled by its rider Master Asia. Later into the series, after Master Asia's death, Domon Kasshu becomes Fuunsaiki's new rider, and shortly after learning that Rain Mikamura had been kidnapped, and that the Devil Gundam is still functioning, Domon takes Fuunsaiki with him into space.
During the battle with the newly rebuilt Devil Gundam, Domon ends up leaving behind a trapped Fuunsaiki which was being restrained by the Devil Gundam. Fuunsaiki is seen in the last episode during the end, after the Devil Gundam is defeated, when Domon and Rain are both riding Fuunsaiki while in the God Gundam. Fuunsaiki then sprouts energy wings as they decide to return to Earth.
Gundam Build Fighters
In a montage of secondary cast victories during a special racing round of the Gunpla battle tournament, the 侍ノ弐 Sengoku Astray Gundam is seen riding Fuunsaiki. It is not known how Nils Nielsen piloted it as no control system is shown.
