The UGY-R38 Spinner Rodi is a mobile suit featured in the Mobile Suit Gundam IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS television series.

Technology & Combat Characteristics

A mobile suit commonly used by various organisations, the Dort Company deployed the Spinner Rodi for colony wall construction.[1] It is also used for security purposes in many industrial colonies, and thus its parts are widely circulated. The protrusion on its forehead contains an additional movable sensor.[2] Spinner Rodi can use a machine gun and can carry a boost hammer on its rear skirt armor.[2] Commander-use version of the machine has a blade antenna at the back of the head.[2]


  • Machine Gun
Spinner Rodi's main ranged weapon, it has a grenade launcher at the bottom.[2]
  • Boost Hammer
Spinner Rodi's main melee weapon, it is stored on the rear skirt armor when not in use. The hammer has built-in thrusters and its handle can flip out, granting the weapon a longer reach.[2]

Special Equipment & Features

  • Anchor Pod
A 4-tube Anchor Pod can be attached onto each leg.[2] It fires spiked rods.[2]


Several Spinner Rodis were stationed in the Dort Colonies by the Dort Company so that their workers can use it for colony wall construction. They were later taken over by the workers during their armed rebellion against the company for poor treatment. However, Gjallarhorn had anticipated this and had sabotaged the Spinner Rodis beforehand. Due to this, the Spinner Rodis had only little fuel for their thrusters and their machine guns were non-functional. As a result, the subsequent battle between Gjallarhorn forces and the workers was a one-sided slaughter. The slaughter was interrupted when the Tekkadan decided to intervene in the battle.[3]

A pink colored commander version of the Spinner Rodi is used by Amida Arca in the past.[4]
