I make it three Marasais, just with poor detailing on the other two. YMMV.

Can't really read much Japanese but the katakana header says "Crossbone Gundam Full Armor".

Well just from the name on the image. I would have to say its a full armor version of the XM-X1 Crossbone Gundam X-1. I say this because FA is normally used by the Federation to indicate Full Armor equipment. It used to indicate the Gundam "Alex" Full Armor as RX-78NT-1FA, and the Full Armor Gundam is known by its model number of FA-78-1.

Crossbone Full Armor is a variant that exists exclusively in an artbook by Yuichi Hasegawa. The backstory is that it was a set of power-up equipment designed by SNRI and Umon, and it's been nicknamed "X4". Each arm has its own generator, the left powering the I-Field mounted in the front armor and the right powering the Muramasa Hi-Blaster beam sword/cannon weapon. The left shoulder device is a pilebunker with a 20-shot charge. Just to cap things off, the rear armor mounts propellant tanks.

Apparently it also appeared in Gundam Weapons F91 & Crossbone Gundam edition, heck the pictures even come with specs.

:shock:

I thought the Civilian Astray 0 Custom had a lot of weapons, but this just takes it to another level. The original Stamen/Orchis was originally designed as an intercept suit for mobile armors. By the appearance of suit itself it looks like it could be a prototype to the finished Orchis, or it could be an anti fortress variant. I can't translate the actual wording but it seems to have something to do with the A.E.U.G apparently around U.C. 0085. That's just my guess since those seem to be the only English parts I can identify.

Not so much identifying a mecha as much as it is trying to figure out where it came from. Found this thing on Nicodoga in a Super Robot Wars Scramble Commander walkthrough. The mech's name is Fragment (フラグメント) and I sure as hell do not remember seeing this is Mazinger Z or Great Mazinger. Vids:

@DuelGundam2099,

Fragment is a Banpresto Original. From what I can understand, it seems to be associated with Swordian. I think Baron Ashura found some Swordian technological relics and modified them, possibly in combination with kikaijuu tech, for his own use.

Thank you, Hitokirigarou. Would you think this qualifies as a ghost mechanical beast since it was created in the Mikene underworld?

While I'm at it would you mind translating real quick the last boss from the SNES Mazinger Z game, please? (7:45-ish)

The various write-ups about Fragment only mention kikaijuu.

All three of these creatures appeared in the Mazinger Z arcade game, I have been able to identify every other one in the game except these three. In the pic I left a small description of each one. They definitely are not Banpresto originals because virtually every other grunt has appeared in Mazinger Z, Great Mazinger, or Grendizer. There's also an extremely high chance the third one in a warrior beast. I'll even post a couple of videos:

First two beasts:

Third beast:

Much thanks if someone can identify even one; I should note real quick that Banpresto has recolored a few saucer beasts inn this game, but I doubt the second and third are Grendizer monsters.

It's hard to tell from those small sprites. My guesses:
1 - メガロンP1/P2/P3 (Megaron P1/P2/P3)
2 - バラスK9 (Baras K9)
3 - デイモスF3 (Deimos F3)

After quick look ups the middle one is definitely Baras K9. After finding out that Balanger M2 was recolored in the game too and nothing else fits I'll take Deimos F3. However, the first one was a little on the, oh how do I say this, "fat" side to be called a Megaron. After some detective work I've come to the conclusion that it is most likely Grendizer's Budobudo.

Much thanks for your help, hitokirigarou. 8)
