The GN-004 Gundam Nadleeh (aka Gundam Nadleeh, Nadleeh), is the hidden form of GN-005 Gundam Virtue in season one of Mobile Suit Gundam 00. Its design was later succeeded by the GN-009 Seraphim Gundam. The unit is piloted by Tieria Erde.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

Behind the masculine bulk of Gundam Virtue lies the slender feminine form of Gundam Nadleeh. To activate Nadleeh, Tieria must utilize his quantum brainwaves to interface with his cockpit to discard Virtue's armor. Designed to serve as Tieria's "trump card," Nadleeh is capable of using Virtue's shoulder cannons as hand-held guns. As a stand alone armament, it can be equipped with a GN Shield and GN Beam Rifle.

In regular combat, Nadleeh is a high mobility general purpose unit. When Nadleeh is unleashed in battle from Virtue, Nadleeh would reach for its cannons to clear the battlefield with heavy beam firing. When launched just-as in battle, Nadleeh can use fire-and-shield tactics with its shield and beam rifle. For melee combat, the unit has a pair of beam sabers for close range combat. The complete range of Nadleeh's abilities is unclear as the unit was rarely deployed in battle. However, one known disadvantage of the suit is its lower than standard particle storage capacity (in contrast to Virtue, which has higher than normal particle storage ability).[1] The most important ability of Nadleeh is its Trial System, which is meant to be used in case any Gundam units go rogue, enabling it to shut down their connection to Veda and render them immobile. However, the system requires an active Veda link, as well as a user that was entrusted with access to it in order to be used. In addition, Nadleeh was designed to be Virtue's escape mechanism[2] as is the norm of Plutone-derived mobile suits.

In a situation where a traitor unit suddenly appears, Virtue would retreat back to Ptolemaios or a base before transforming into Nadleeh.[3] While transforming into Nadleeh is simple, doing so on the battlefield is considered dangerous.[3] Despite this however, Virtue has been observed to have transformed into Nadleeh during combat on a minimum of two occasions.[4][5]

Armaments

  • GN Beam Rifle
Derived from GNY-004 Gundam Plutone, the GN Beam Rifle serves as the primary weapon when Nadleeh is launched as a stand alone unit, as opposed to emerging from Virtue. While it is far inferior in power than the GN Bazooka, it still has reasonably powerful beam output[6] with the capability of destroying another suit in one to two shots with excellent accuracy. In addition, a beam saber can be emitted from the rifle's barrel for melee combat.[6]
  • GN Cannons
Obtained from Virtue's setup after armor cast off. While it is not as powerful as the GN Bazooka, the fact that is more flexible and dynamic makes it more suitable for fighting a wider range of enemies.[6] Unlike Virtue, Nadleeh uses them with its hands.[6]
  • GN Shield
Another evolution of Plutone's equipment.[6] Although the defense area is smaller than the regular one, it is also lighter and thus more mobile.[6] It is used alongside the beam rifle as Nadleeh's stand alone equipment.
  • GN Beam Saber
Two of these weapons are mounted on Nadleeh's hips. The beam saber is a hilt with the ability to activate a beam blade by generating a positron field filled with GN Particles. While the beam saber has a high power rating, one disadvantage is that its performance can be decreased by surrounding atmospheric conditions or methods of beam diffusion.

Special Equipment & Features

Usable after the GN Drive's blackbox is unlocked due to the system trap.
The operating system used by the Gundams that relies on a constant link to Veda. After the Veda link to the Gundams were permanently cut, the Ptolemaios team were forced to switch to an alternate and inferior stand alone system that they independently developed.[7]

Notes and Trivia

  • The name "Nadleeh" comes from the Navajo word meaning "Two-Spirit", a reference to the female figure hidden within the male.
  • In the early concept stages, Nadleeh was codenamed "Queen Gundam". The Queen was supposed to be a powerful unit with no blind spots or weaknesses. Its abilities included a strange "psycommu ESP-grasping" ability to graps other mobile units, as well as wireless units that can be used as offensive and defensive weapons. It was not supposed to participate in normal battles, with the exception of the King Gundam being in danger and Queen being summoned from within Rook as a bodyguard. The final Nadleeh inherited its feminine appearance, while the MS grasping ability was modified and formed the Trial System and the wireless units became the Fangs for the Throne Zwei.
  • The Gundam Nadleeh shares similarities with the GF13-050NSW Nobel Gundam, both possess a feminine body frame, equipment on the head that resembles "hair", and a special system that enhances their performance.
    • Nadleeh's "hair" is actually a series of connection cables which link between the suit and the external armor.
