Shin SD Gundam Gaiden: Gaitōshin Senki (新SDガンダム外伝 鎧闘神戦記?) is a media project within the SD Gundam franchise produced in 1995, centered on Bandai's Gunpla and Carddass trading cards.

Overview

The series introduces the concept of a human-type character that transforms into a Gundam-based form. (Something later reused in another series, New World Advent Legend) The character designs in the series are taken from mostly Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, including the G-UNIT sidestory. The series went only up to three chapters originally, with the fourth chapter being released with the complete box set in 2010.

Story

In the beginning of the Saddrac World, Superior Kaiser fought and sealed away an evil god known as Barockgun.

Chapters

  • Armor Battle God's Appearance

An archaeologist named Treize of Romafeller had been digging in a former machine soldier battle ground when he uncovered the ancient God, Barockgun, and discovered that the angel clan's shrine maiden was key to unlocking its seal. He formed an army called "Genesis Army OZ World" to control machines known as "D-Dolls" and attacked the Union Clan Army. While the angel princess, Relenia, was escaping, crisis struck when the older of her two angel bodyguard brothers, Millardo, was defeated. At that moment, the younger brother, Heero, was given the power to transform into Knight Wing Gundam and the Armored War God by Superior Dragon. At the same time, four controllers from around the world were given powers by Superior Dragon to fight against OZ World.

  • Transcendence! Giant Transformation

Although the Armored War God and the four machine soldiers overtake most of OZ World's forces, they are defeated by three soldiers including Thunder Commander Tallgeese and its pilot, Lightning Knight Zechs, and Wing was petrified. Although the four knights lacked Wing, their hearts united and also transformed into War Gods. Wing, as well, fulfilled true awakening thanks to Releina's prayers.

  • Black Armored War God

Giga Tallgeese was defeated by the five battle gods, but Barockgun transformed Zechs into Knight Epyon and Armor Battle God Epyon. Wing, who was aware that Zechs is his brother Millardo, can't fight and loses to Epyon. The partners of the four War Gods then arrived from the Algus Kingdom with the legendary items of the Algus Knights and the Beast Machines. In addition, Knight X revives Wing and Epyon is released from Barockgun's spell. However, Releina is kidnapped by Angel Dorothy, whose goal was the resurrection of Barockgun.

  • Revolution of the Ultra Armored War God

With Relenia at the core, Barockgun fully completes his resurrection and begins to attack the Saddrac World. Meanwhile, Rebel Knight X lead the Shuffle Knights to battle along side the War Gods, who had gained new power due to the New Algus Knights. The final battle ended when the guardian knights used the sacred treasure given to them to power up Armored War God Wing and defeat the Supremacy God. After the battle, the Great Armored Battle God and Barockgun were fused by the power of Superior Dragon to create a new god for the reborn Saddrac World. With Saddrac being protected by the new gods and knights, Superior Dragon left for another dimension.
