Technology & Combat Characteristics
The Fuunsaiki is both a Mobile Armor, and an actual horse, built to enhance a Mobile Fighter's aerial capabilities. The Gundam's movement, like all other Gundams in the series, is based on the pilot's movement. The Gundam version of Fuunsaiki is classified as a Mobile Horse. Although Fuunsaiki is rarely or never seen fighting, it is usually used a mode of transportation. For this, the Gundam docking with the Mobile Horse must control it using its entire body. It can also function as an aerial platform, used as a means of stability or movement through space, as the platform is only ever seen in space.

The Fuunsaiki first appeared during the Gundam Fight Finals in Neo Hong Kong, controlled by its rider Master Asia. Later into the series, after Master Asia's death, Domon Kasshu takes Fuunsaiki into his possession, and shortly after learning that Rain Mikamura had been kidnapped, and that the Devil Gundam is still functioning, Domon takes Fuunsaiki with him into space.
During the battle with the newly rebuilt Devil Gundam, Domon ends up leaving behind a trapped Fuunsaiki which was being restrained by the Devil Gundam. Fuunsaiki is seen in the last episode during the end, after the Devil Gundam is defeated, when Domon and Rain are both riding Fuunsaiki while in the God Gundam. Fuunsaiki then sprouts energy wings as they decide to return to Earth.
Gundam Build Fighters
