It has one of the strongest plot armors.
>>
>>13780419
Certainly felt that way in Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3.

Specifically made to allow even an oldtype to have newtype abilities. Also to counter and cancel out the advantages of newtypes and newtype mobile suits. Psycoframe hax allows anything to happen so long as your hotblooded teenage boy pilot is hotblooded enough.

I've played that game and that statement is wrong.

can you just spam nukes all day to clear out groups of mobs?
>>
>>13780585
With the perk that allows you to quickly gain meter, another one that makes the move more powerful, and a third that makes defeated enemies explode creating a domino effect, that's pretty much what I did.
>>
>>13780585
Don't see why you would do that when you can just clear the field with the Double X.
>>
>>13780419
Despite however flashy it looks in it's own show, things like Crossbone and V2 probably outclass it by multiple levels.
>>
It's still garbage compared to a Valkyrie senpai
>>
>>13780585
>can you just spam nukes all day to clear out groups of mobs?

Yes. You can literally wipe out fields of enemies faster than they can spawn with the nuke.
>>
>>13780419
Not even close.
>>
>>13780419
With a strong Newtype, yes.
>>
I guess. The base suit isn't all THAT great, but it's a conduit for some stupid shit.
It's one of the best looking Gundams, though - until it goes into Destroy mode.

In fact banshee always looked better than its equivalent unicorn design except green unicorn

Bashee in normal mode was a fucking disaster.

Blue Unicorn was supreme of the supreme..
>>
>>13780644

Oddly enough, I think you might be right.

All of the really devastating stuff that Unicorn does exploit newtype or minovsky based technologies build into the enemy suit. None of which is going to work on mecha from other franchises. You can't cause the e-caps in the enemies weapon to blow up if the enemy doesn't use e-caps, you can't funnel hack something that isn't a goddamn funnel, etc.

So, barring newtype shit that targets the mind of the enemy pilot directly, there isn't really anything that the Unicorn can do that makes it more of a threat than any other mobile suit that can carry beam weaponry.

Aside from plot armor, I can't think of a reason why a late generation valk wouldn't blow it out of the sky from beyond the range that Unicorn can fight back.

Depend on whether it can keep it with the F91
Or take a VSBR shot to the face

VSBR is made to get through i-fields and f91 doesn't have a psycoframe so it would wreck the unicorn

VSBR pierces beam shields, not i-fields.

It's powered by ideonite.

>>

THIS.
Turn A is not the only Gundam capable of ending human civilization. The fact that Domon was able to stop it doesn't really matter when comparing Turn A to Devil. If the plot of G Gundam revolved around Domon trying to stop the Turn A it would have been a MUCH shorter series. Devil's abilities far outstrip the Turn A's.
>>
>>13783578

It doesn't really revive them, just reanimate them. It's still a great power mind, just pointing out the technical difference.
>>
>>13783678
>If the plot of G Gundam revolved around Domon trying to stop the Turn A it would have been a MUCH shorter series.
Yes, but Turn A could still beat Devil.
Because fighting doesn't actually revolve around POWUR LEVUHS like Toriyama wants you to believe.

VSBRs cant penatrate I-Fields, pretty much nothing has ever been shown to defeat I-Fields by force alone. Beam Shields on the other hand are pretty easy to punch through, V2AB's main guns can even punch through a battleship class beam shield.
>>
>>13785923
Anon do you know what is keeping the plasma in place in a beam shield?
its an I-field

Not a problem

>big ugly horn
I like the horn. It's distinctive, and it's only ugly when it turns into a V-Fin (which is one of my main problems with Destroy Mode)

>somehow both overdesigned and visually boring
That's my other problem with Destroy Mode. It's colored stripes and an open helmet - it shouldn't be as busy and garish as it is. The awakened version isn't as bad because the lines aren't bright, glowing red, but it still seems like it has lines for the sake of lines.

>exists exclusively in CGspace
Hey, it looks good in 2D (when it's drawn with softer lines), EXVS and its model kit - anything else is on Sunrise's head.
>>
>>13785796
Yeah. Just doesnt have to be piloting the suit at the time.
>>
>>13783610
>THEY FUCKING ATE A GIANT BEAM
and as an immediate consequences the Unicorn got rekt and turned into crystals,the pilot almost died/ascended to nirvana and only gets back because of muh waifu.
Had someone else been in there who could bring out the unicorn's potential they would've died. Banahger only survived because he had people to come back to.
>>
>>13783713
>Yes, but Turn A could still beat Devil.

What that's not true at all. Devil would evolve to absorb the nanites before the moonlight butterfly could fully destroy it. The only reason Domon could beat Devil Gundam was because Rain was the pilot.

Schwarz had someone's mind actually migrate into his body, though. And I don't think we can attribute that to the Devil Gundam itself.

>And I don't think we can attribute that to the Devil Gundam itself.

Would still get facerolled by a sufficiently advanced Valkyrie.

Seriously, get a grip Gundamfags.
>>
>>13789911
Nobody cares about your moe idolshit.
>>
>>13785934
The i-field used to shape a beam weapon is nowhere near the same kind of i-field barrier that stuff like the Unicorn or mobile armors generally use.
>>
>>13789943
it's the same thing, they're both called I-fields

the ones on a beam sabre/shield are just much, much weaker
>>
>>13785923

There's at least one thing that has overwhelmed not just one, but at least 5 advanced i-fields capable of stopping physical matter as well as energy at once. Wanna guess what? Moonlight Butterfly.

>>13789678

He destroyed it several times before then when Rain wasn't the pilot too. With more ease even. The only reason it was so strong against Domon in the finale is specifically because Rain didn't want to confront Domon in the first place. Against someone she didn't know it wouldn't have been as strong.
