Haunted Castle Trap is the 17th episode of Gundam Build Fighters Try.


In the second round of the tournament, the Try Fighters will be facing team SD-R from Toritsu Academy, representing Niigata. These three brothers are formidable enemies, who have made it this far by thoroughly analyzing their opponents' data, and then using their SD Gundams to execute precision tactics with skillful teamwork. As rival players look on, the battle finally begins. The Try Fighters must search through a huge haunted castle, watching out for enemy attacks. But due to Yuuma's unexpected weak point, they fall for their opponent's plan, and the Try Fighters are split up. Fumina heads underground to rejoin her teammates, and finds that a time bomb has been planted to block her path. Meanwhile, Sekai and Yuuma have fallen underground and are now in peril due to the enemy's Absorb System, which pins down their machines by absorbing Plavsky particles.[1]




Mobile Weapons


  • Assimilation's power-up effect is compared directly to the Trans-Am System from Mobile Suit Gundam 00. However, the description of its mechanics more closely resembles the Bio-Sensors of Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam.
  • Portions of the haunted castle interior bear resemblance to those of fortresses featured in SD Gundam Gaiden.
    • Statues in the castle further reference the SD Gundam franchise: Superior Lander from the Gundlander series, Indy Gundam and his Tyranozaku mount from SD Gundam Gaiden: Machine Soldier Chapter, and Psyco Golem from SD Gundam Gaiden.
  • The intro was updated and now fully shows XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X-1 Full Cloth Type.GBFT instead of just a darkened figure.
