Technology & Combat Characteristics
A mobile fighter representing Neo Spain in the 13th Gundam Fight. The name "Matador" means "bullfighter," but the shape of the machine is reminiscent of the head of a giant bull. It is a fighting-type machine, with tenacious legs and feet due to its stable center of gravity, and powerful dashing power. It excels at assaulting with its heat horns, which are mounted on its torso, and overwhelms its opponents with a forceful physical attack. The Matador Gundam can also retract its head and limbs into its massive torso, transforming into a giant bull's head whose rocket boosters allow it to ram its foes at high speed.
- Heat Horn
- A giant horn equipped with two units on its torso. It has outstanding destructive power, and fights in a style that skewers opponents by turning them red hot.
- A slender physical sword. Attacks the opponent's vital points by thrusting instead of cutting.
- Beam Cloth
- A red cloak-shaped beam that hangs from the bottom of the forearm.
- Red Flag Swirl
- A special move reminiscent of a bullfighter. It deploys a beam cloth and forcibly draws the opponent in, then attacks their vital points with a saber as they pass by.
It made its first appearance in episode 21 with a herd of fierce bulls, and headed for the finals venue, Neo Hong Kong. After that, it appeared in a few episodes starting from episode 24, but it didn't play a prominent role in the finals, as it only appeared in one cut and was defeated in a confrontation with Mermaid Gundam. In the final battle against the Devil Gundam, he joined the Gundam Union as a member and fought against the Devil Colony with Gundams from various countries.
