Like its predecessor, the XXXG-01D Gundam Deathscythe, the Deathscythe Hell is a mobile suit that specializes in stealth and close combat. Its pilot, Duo Maxwell, favorite strategies is to use the Gundam's hyper jammers and its "active cloak" system to sneak close to enemy units to catch them unawares. This tactic is usually good for taking out at least one or two enemy units, after which Duo will shut off the active cloak system allowing his Gundam to be seen. The active cloak is also useful with being able to maneuver effectively in space when opened or block enemy beam cannons when closed.

An updated version of the [[XXXG-01D Gundam Deathscythe]] that was destroyed by OZ, the Deathscythe Hell is better adapted for space combat. Like its predecessor, the Deathscythe Hell specializes in stealth and close combat. The new active cloak mounted on the shoulders improve the suit's defense when closed, and is capable of withstanding multiple beam cannons shots from the Virgo mobile dolls. Furthermore, it also allows the suit to go invisible. When opened, the active cloak enhances the Gundam's mobility. Duo Maxwell's favorite strategies is to use the Gundam's enhanced hyper jammers and its invisibility to sneak close to enemy units and catch them unaware. This tactic is usually good for taking out at least one or two enemy units, after which Duo will uncloak the Gundam.
   
Deathscythe Hell's primary weapon is a beam scythe much like its predecessor. However the new beam scythe has been upgraded from the original by adding a second beam scythe blade and a small rocket engine on the end. The second beam scythe gives the weapon a slightly greater reach while the rocket engine increases the power of the swing allowing Deathscythe Hell to cut through multiple enemy units with ease.

The second blade gives the weapon a greater reach, while the rocket engine increases the power of the swing, allowing Deathscythe Hell to cut through multiple enemy units with ease. The Deathscythe Hell's secondary weapon is a Buster Shield on the left arm which can launch from said arm to be used as a projectile weapon. Like the original Deathscythe's, this buster shield also has a beam blade emitter mounted within. Despite its upgrades, the Deathsycthe Hell lacks options for sustained ranged attacks. Although it retains the relatively weak head-mounted vulcans, the clavical-mounted machine guns featured in its original form were removed in order to allow room for the active cloak. This leaves the Deathscythe Hell's Buster Shield as its only truly dependable ranged attack.

===Endless Waltz===
  +
Hajime Katoki's redesigned version of Deathscythe Hell, its origin and history remains consistent with the TV series. In this version, the active cloak is mounted on the back instead of the shoulder and shaped like a bat's wings. However, the active cloak can still fold over the suit and have identical functions as the TV version. Another difference is that the upgraded beam scythe is known as beam scissors, it does not have any rocket engine and only has one beam scythe blade. This version of the Deathscythe Hell also has no buster shield, but retains the head vulcans and the hyper jammers. The hyper jammers now do not protrude out of the backpack, but are mounted on the top parts of the chest.

In the [[New Mobile Report Gundam Wing Endless Waltz: The Glory of Losers]], the Katoki version version of the Deathscythe Hell saw the return of the buster shield and a second beam scythe blade is added to the beam scissors. In fact, the suit now has two buster shields that are mounted on the side skirt armor, while the second beam scythe blade on the beam scissors is fixed in place facing upwards.
 
In combat Duo Maxwell uses the same fighting style piloting Deathscythe Hell as he did the original, however there is one significant difference. Duo seems in some cases less concerned about dodging enemy attacks. This is probably because Deathscythe Hell is equipped with a set of very durable shoulder shields which are strong enough to block multiple attacks from the beam cannons utilized by the Virgo mobile dolls. The Mobile Dolls also lack human reasoning, and thus are unable to properly assess the situation when set against the Deathscythe Hell and its sensor-jamming ability.

:These head mounted shell firing weapons have a high-rate of fire, but have little power and are generally ineffective against mobile suits; however, the vulcan gun can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors. These weapons are ideal for shooting down small, fast moving, lightly armored targets such as missiles or small vehicles.

;*Twin Beam Scythe/Twin Beam Scissors/Beam Scissors
:Similar to the original Beam Scythe on the Deathscythe. However, it features an extra beam emitter, and also a rocket thruster to give it extra momentum in use, effectively quadrupling the power of the original scythe. When not in use, the beam scythe is stored on a recharge rack on the backskirt. In the Katoki version featured in The Glory of Losers, the scythe also has the extra beam emitter, but it is fixed in place facing upwards and does not have the added thruster of the TV version, this version is called '''beam scissors'''.<ref>http://www.gundamgallery.com/data/media/76/Gundam%20Wing%20-%20MS%20Encyclopedia%20-100.jpg</ref>

:As implied by its name, the twin beam scythe has an extra beam emitter compared to the original Deathscythe's beam scythe. It also has a rocket thruster to give it extra momentum in use, effectively quadrupling the power of the original scythe. When not in use, the weapon is stored on the back skirt with its handle retracted. In the Katoki version featured in the Endless Waltz OVA, the weapon is known as ''beam scissors'' and only has one beam scythe, but with enhanced power. However, the Katoki version featured in The Glory of Losers, showed the beam scissors started out as the ''twin beam scissors'', which also has the extra beam emitter, but fixed in place facing upwards and does not have the added thruster of the TV version.

:Contains four field generators that function similarly to the Mercurius' planet defenders, they are used when the shoulder-mounted active cloak is closed. The force field is strong enough to repel shots from Vayeate or Virgo's beam cannons, and the armor itself is coated with an anti-beam coating. The active cloak also allows the Deathscythe Hell to turn invisible when closed, and can function as wings when opened, enhancing the suit's mobility. In the TV version, the armor is mounted on top of the shoulders, with two of them on each side, which will unfold upwards in a wing like fashion when opened. In the Endless Waltz's version, the armor is mounted on the back of Deathscythe Hell as a pair of large bat-like wings.

==History==
 
==History==
When the XXXG-01D Gundam Deathscythe was captured and destroyed by OZ's forces in AC 195, the extremely durable gundanium-made remains of that mobile suit were taken to OZ's lunar base and mobile suit factory for storage. The five scientists who had built the Gundams plaguing OZ were also at the lunar base, captured and forced to develop new mobile suit technology to secure OZ's rule over Earth and the space colonies. Despite their apparent "cooperation," however, the scientists also began rebuilding the Deathscythe in secret, preparing for the day when captured Gundam pilot Duo Maxwell could return to the battlefield. That opportunity came when the Romefeller Foundation - the political force behind OZ - became split over a number of issues, and the "Treize Faction" of OZ attacked the lunar base, which at the time was still under the control of Romefeller loyalists. During the chaos, Duo managed to escape, taking his rebuilt XXXG-01D2 Gundam Deathscythe Hell to continue fighting on his own. At that time, the Deathscythe Hell was only seventy percent complete; later repairs and field upgrades would allow Duo to complete the resurrected mobile suit, bringing it up to its full combat potential.

At that time, the Deathscythe Hell was only seventy percent complete; Duo would later complete the suit on his own, bringing it up to its full combat potential. Using his new Gundam, Duo continued his fight against both the militaristic Romefeller Foundation and the radical civilian "White Fang" rebels.
   
The new Deathscythe Hell was a considerable improvement over its original form, with a more powerful twin beam scythe (which mounted a small rocket engine to give it more force when swung against multiple targets), increased speed and mobility to help it maneuver effectively in space, improved hyper jammers, and an "active cloak" system which served as both an optical/visual cloaking system (making the Gundam literally invisible to an enemy's naked eye) and as an external layer of beam-deflecting armor. These improvements allowed Duo to continue his fight against both the militaristic OZ and the radical civilian "White Fang" rebels, putting the Gundam Deathscythe Hell on an almost equal footing with White Fang's newest AI-controlled mobile dolls.

Revision as of 09:39, October 7, 2019

The XXXG-01D2 Gundam Deathscythe Hell (aka Deathscythe Hell, or Gundam Zero-Two) is the upgraded version of XXXG-01D Gundam Deathscythe in Mobile Suit Gundam Wing. It was redesigned by Hajime Katoki for the movie sequel New Mobile Report Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz. It is piloted by Duo Maxwell.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

An updated version of the XXXG-01D Gundam Deathscythe that was destroyed by OZ, the Deathscythe Hell is better adapted for space combat. Like its predecessor, the Deathscythe Hell specializes in stealth and close combat. The new active cloak mounted on the shoulders improve the suit's defense when closed, and is capable of withstanding multiple beam cannons shots from the Virgo mobile dolls. Furthermore, it also allows the suit to go invisible. When opened, the active cloak enhances the Gundam's mobility. Duo Maxwell's favorite strategies is to use the Gundam's enhanced hyper jammers and its invisibility to sneak close to enemy units and catch them unaware. This tactic is usually good for taking out at least one or two enemy units, after which Duo will uncloak the Gundam.

Deathscythe Hell's primary weapon is a beam scythe like its predecessor, but it has been upgraded with a second beam scythe blade and a small rocket engine on the end. The second blade gives the weapon a greater reach, while the rocket engine increases the power of the swing, allowing Deathscythe Hell to cut through multiple enemy units with ease. The Deathscythe Hell's secondary weapon is a Buster Shield on the left arm which can launch from said arm to be used as a projectile weapon. Like the original Deathscythe's, this buster shield also has a beam blade emitter mounted within. Despite its upgrades, the Deathsycthe Hell lacks options for sustained ranged attacks. Although it retains the relatively weak head-mounted vulcans, the clavical-mounted machine guns featured in its original form were removed in order to allow room for the active cloak. This leaves the Deathscythe Hell's Buster Shield as its only truly dependable ranged attack.

Endless Waltz

Hajime Katoki's redesigned version of Deathscythe Hell, its origin and history remains consistent with the TV series. In this version, the active cloak is mounted on the back instead of the shoulder and shaped like a bat's wings. However, the active cloak can still fold over the suit and have identical functions as the TV version. Another difference is that the upgraded beam scythe is known as beam scissors, it does not have any rocket engine and only has one beam scythe blade. This version of the Deathscythe Hell also has no buster shield, but retains the head vulcans and the hyper jammers. The hyper jammers now do not protrude out of the backpack, but are mounted on the top parts of the chest.

In the New Mobile Report Gundam Wing Endless Waltz: The Glory of Losers, the Katoki version version of the Deathscythe Hell saw the return of the buster shield and a second beam scythe blade is added to the beam scissors. In fact, the suit now has two buster shields that are mounted on the side skirt armor, while the second beam scythe blade on the beam scissors is fixed in place facing upwards.

Armaments

  • Vulcan Gun
These head mounted shell firing weapons have high rate of fire, but little power and are generally ineffective against mobile suits; however, they can damage lightly armored areas such as the sensors. They are ideal for shooting down small, lightly armored targets such as missiles, attack vehicles, etc.
  • Twin Beam Scythe/Twin Beam Scissors/Beam Scissors
As implied by its name, the twin beam scythe has an extra beam emitter compared to the original Deathscythe's beam scythe. It also has a rocket thruster to give it extra momentum in use, effectively quadrupling the power of the original scythe. When not in use, the weapon is stored on the back skirt with its handle retracted. In the Katoki version featured in the Endless Waltz OVA, the weapon is known as beam scissors and only has one beam scythe, but with enhanced power. However, the Katoki version featured in The Glory of Losers, showed the beam scissors started out as the twin beam scissors, which also has the extra beam emitter, but fixed in place facing upwards and does not have the added thruster of the TV version.
  • Buster Shield
An improved version of the original Buster Shield, it has a coffin like motif on the exterior and two thrusters on the back with higher output. The beam blade emitted when the blades at the front split apart is also more powerful. In the Katoki version featured in The Glory of Losers, Deathscythe Hell now has two Buster Shields, but they are attached to the side skirts instead of the forearm.
  • Beam Saber
A close-combat weapon used by Wing Gundam Proto Zero. It was dropped by Trant Clark during his battle with Deathscythe Hell and subsequently picked up and used against him by Duo.

Special Equipment & Features

  • Active Cloak
Contains four field generators that function similarly to the Mercurius' planet defenders, they are used when the shoulder-mounted active cloak is closed. The force field is strong enough to repel shots from Vayeate or Virgo's beam cannons, and the armor itself is coated with an anti-beam coating. The active cloak also allows the Deathscythe Hell to turn invisible when closed, and can function as wings when opened, enhancing the suit's mobility. In the TV version, the armor is mounted on top of the shoulders, with two of them on each side, which will unfold upwards in a wing like fashion when opened. In the Endless Waltz's version, the armor is mounted on the back of Deathscythe Hell as a pair of large bat-like wings.
  • Hyper Jammer
The nozzles protruding from the TV version's backpack scatter jamming particles which scramble the enemy's radar and cameras. Features twice the jamming power than that of the original Deathscythe. For the Endless Waltz's version, the hyper jammers seem to be integrated into the body.
  • Self-Destruct System
The Deathscythe Hell was built to self-destruct should the pilot choose to. A remote detonator is placed within the cockpit and if a dire situation arrives, the pilot can destroy the Mobile Suit. The system was designed to overload its power systems and has enough explosive power to destroy several city blocks. It's a last option tactic if the pilot is incapable of protecting the Mobile Suit, while not allowing it to fall into enemy hands. It also can be used as one large explosive device to eradicate large targets.

History

After the Gundam Deathscythe was captured and destroyed by OZ's forces in AC 195, its remains were taken to OZ's lunar base and mobile suit factory for storage. The five scientists who had built the Gundams plaguing OZ were also at the lunar base, captured and forced to develop new mobile suit technology to secure OZ's rule over Earth and the space colonies. Despite their apparent "cooperation," however, the scientists also began rebuilding the Deathscythe in secret, preparing for the day when captured Gundam pilot Duo Maxwell could return to the battlefield. That opportunity came when the Romefeller Foundation - the political force behind OZ - became split over a number of issues, and the "Treize Faction" of OZ attacked the lunar base, which at the time was still under the control of Romefeller loyalists. During the chaos, Duo managed to escape, taking his upgraded Gundam Deathscythe Hell to continue fighting on his own. At that time, the Deathscythe Hell was only seventy percent complete; Duo would later complete the suit on his own, bringing it up to its full combat potential. Using his new Gundam, Duo continued his fight against both the militaristic Romefeller Foundation and the radical civilian "White Fang" rebels.

Notes

  • The torso design of the Endless Waltz version resembles the XXXG-01D Gundam Deathscythe moreso than its TV series counterpart; notably lacking the "ribcage" armor and ornate trim.
  • When the Gundam Wing series of 1/144 and 1/100 model kits was released in toy stores in America, the Deathscythe Hell's name lead to controversy due to the religious themes of its name. In most cases, the Deathscythe Hell model kits were not sold in Toys R Us stores.
  • In the game Super Robot Wars 64 for Nintendo 64, Deathscythe Hell Custom can be obtained simply by fully upgrading the Deathscythe Hell. However, there is no Endless Waltz storyline in the game.
  • In some Super Robot Wars series, the Deathscythe Hell will not be hit by missile attacks thanks to its Hyper Jammer ECM Suite ability.
