The GN-001RE Gundam Exia Repair (aka Exia Repair) is a repaired version of the GN-001 Gundam Exia appearing in Mobile Suit Gundam 00 season 2. It is piloted by Setsuna F. Seiei.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

The Gundam Exia, which was badly damaged in the final battle with the United Nations Forces four years ago, was repaired into the Gundam Exia Repair by its Gundam Meister, Setsuna, who had not return to Celestial Being since then.[1][2][3][4] The Exia's decapitated head was reattached, a cloak was used to conceal its missing left arm which was severed, and junk parts utilized in the repair of various areas, with the most notable being the use of a Tieren's mono-eye camera to replace the lost right camera eye.[1][2][3][5]

Despite the repairs done by Setsuna, there are still many areas on Exia Repair's body that are not fixed; nevertheless, it returned to the battlefield as it could operate without any issues.[1][2][3][6] Although Exia Repair retains the GN Sword as its main armament, the weapon's blade is broken.[1][2][3][6] It also seem to keep the right forearm's GN Vulcan, with the rest of the original Exia's weapons lost during the final battle.[7] It is unknown if the Trans-Am System and the Optical Camouflage remain usable.

The Exia Repair was incapacitated in AD 2312 following a fierce battle with an A-Laws' mobile suit team.[6][8] Fortunately, the reborn Celestial Being appeared, saving Setsuna and recovering the Exia Repair.[6] Subsequently, its GN Drive was transferred to the GN-0000 00 Gundam's Twin Drive System.[9] The Exia Repair was eventually refurbished with the latest technology by a team of mechanics led by Ian Vashti, becoming the more powerful GN-001REII Gundam Exia Repair II.[1][3][10][11]

Armaments

  • GN Sword
Mounted on the right forearm, the GN Sword is the Exia Repair's main weapon. Even though its blade is broken, it is fundamentally the same weapon as used by the original Exia, and can still transform into Rifle Mode for ranged combat by folding the blade.[1][2][3][6] The damaged blade remains capable of damaging a mobile suit and parrying blows from the GN Beam Saber of the more advanced GNX-704T Ahead, but a combine strike from two of Ahead's GN Beam Sabers proved too much for it.[6]
  • GN Vulcan
The Exia Repair seems to retain the GN Vulcan built into the right forearm. This small beam gun has low firepower, but its beams can be rapid-fired intermittently and it is effective in restricting enemy movements, damaging conventional weapons without E-Carbon armor, etc.

History

After Celestial Being's defeat by the UN Forces in AD 2308, Gundam Meister Setsuna F. Seiei lost contact with the organization. Lacking the resources to properly repair his damaged GN-001 Gundam Exia, Setsuna salvaged several parts and scraps to get his mobile suit back into operating condition, creating the Gundam Exia Repair.

In AD 2312, Setsuna arrived at the Space Colony Proud while tracking the activities of the autonomous peacekeeping force, the A-Laws. The colony was then attacked by the anti-Federation group, Katharon, and the A-Laws soon appeared to stop them. After destroying several of the A-Laws' Automatons, Setsuna headed out in the Exia Repair to battle the peacekeeping force's mobile suits and was able to hold his own against the newer GNX-609T GN-XIII and GNX-704T Ahead using the Gundam's broken GN Sword for a while. The Exia Repair was eventually overwhelmed by the Ahead, which dealt further damage to the Gundam's broken GN Sword, right leg and also severed its right arm.

Just as the Exia Repair was about to be destroyed by the GN-XIII, it was saved by beam shots from the GN-008 Seravee Gundam. After the battle, Setsuna and his Exia Repair were brought onboard the CBS-74 Ptolemaios 2 and he joined the reborn Celestial Being. The Exia Repair's GN Drive was then transferred to the new GN-0000 00 Gundam, and the mobile suit itself was later refurbished, becoming the GN-001REII Gundam Exia Repair II.

Notes & Trivia

  • The Gundam Exia Repair is one of the few Celestial Being's Gundams to not have a High Grade Gundam 00 model kit.
  • Exia Repair has only two attacks in Super Robot Wars Z2 Saisei-hen; GN Sword in rifle mode and GN Sword in sword mode. It is also only used in some earlier levels, before being replaced by 00 Gundam.
  • Exia Repair appears in Gundam Extreme Vs as a playable unit, only usable after Exia is destroyed at Overcost. This mechanic was carried over from RX-78GP01 Gundam "Zephyranthes" in the previous games. Despite the unit never doing so in the anime, it is capable of using Trans-Am, but the unit's poor state and broken sword causes it to have slower attacks and less ammunition for its GN Vulcan. Its missing arm also prevents the unit from guarding against attacks.
