Technology & Combat Characteristics
Based on the OZ-15AGX Hydra Gundam, the Cruel Gundam also has the active cloak and beam scissors of the Endless Waltz's version of the XXXG-01D2 Gundam Deathscythe Hell as well as the dragon fangs of the Endless Waltz's verion of the XXXG-01S2 Altron Gundam. The suit's body is covered by a full body cloak resembling those worn by the XXXG-01SR2 Gundam Sandrock Kai and its Maganac Corps allies. In addition, it is also equipped with GN Fangs from the GNW-002 Gundam Throne Zwei.
- Shoulder Claw
- The same weapon as used by Hydra Gundam, the pair of Shoulder Claws are capable of both melee and ranged attacks as they are also equipped with beam cannons. Attached to the shoulders via foldable mounting arms, they can also be launched as wire-guided weapons that can alter their attack positions due to the small verniers installed. Thus, the Shoulder Claws are capable of performing "all-range attacks."
- Dragon Fang
- The same extendable forearm-mounted weapon as used by Endless Waltz's version of Altron Gundam, the pair of Dragon Fangs are used as grappling pincers or shields. The Cruel Gundam uses the Dragon Fangs together with the Shoulder Claws to tear apart captured opponent.
- GN Fang
- The same weapon as used by Gundam Throne Zwei, the GN Fangs are small, winged remote bits with a beam emitter each that can fire beam shots or emit a short beam blade. Cruel Gundam was observed using four GN Fangs at once, though the exact number it holds and method of storage are unknown.
- Beam Scissors
- The same handheld beam scythe as the one used by Endless Waltz's version of Gundam Deathscythe Hell.
Two years before the events of Gundam Build Fighters Try, Adou used the Cruel Gundam to challenge Yuuma Kousaka ahead of the regional qualifiers. Yuuma's Gundam Airmaster Yuuma Kousaka Original Color was little match for the Cruel Gundam, and was soundly defeated, leading Adou to mock him for failing to live up to his reputation. Adou's declarations would haunt Yuuma until their rematch two years later.
