Android Keiko (or simply Keiko) is a major supporting character in The Knights of the Multiverse, introduced in Season 1, made to resemble a character from Invincible Steel Man Zambot 3. She's one of three androids created by Dr. G of L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. made in the image of the Zambot Team (specifically, the team's only female member, Keiko Kamikita) to gain the trust of The Knights and take them out from the inside, though she soon had a change of heart and went against her programming, even joining The Knights and taking the Replica Zambo Ace to aid in their battles against the forces of evil.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Keiko's android doppelganger is the most like her original human counterpart in personality, maintaining the original Keiko's kind nature and strong conviction to fight. However, she also maintains her counterpart's emotional vulnerability, as after she started getting aquatinted with the Knights, she was desperate to have her bomb removed, mostly in a combination of not wanting to die and so she wouldn't kill her new friends.
She also has a slight inferiority complex around the human she was based off of, believing that she's just a pathetic copy with another person's face stuck on (which, technically/sadly, she is). However, she is slowly but surely working her way to try and find her own place in the world, and make herself a pilot the original Zambot team would be proud of.
History[edit | edit source]
Season 1[edit | edit source]
The Android replica of Keiko Kamikita of the Zambot team were created by Dr. G in another plan to destroy the Knights from the inside. While she was made fully aware that she was simply an android made to look like the legendary heroes of the Imperial Wars, she was given her human counterpart's personality and memories using all the data they could find on her. She was also constructed with a bomb inserted into her that was set to go off at any moment of her choosing.
Skills & Weapons[edit | edit source]
- Piloting Skills
Though these skills were really just skills programmed into her, Android Keiko is able to pilot generally any type of vehicle or mech.
- Finger Lasers
Android Keiko is able to fire Photon lasers from her fingertips to defend herself.
Like her "brothers", Android Keiko has a bomb stored inside of her chest that's she's able to remotely detonate at any moment of her choosing (of course, she didn't want to set her's off, so...). However, it is easily removable, as (in a pure stroke of genius) it's only held together by a few circuits & wires.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Mr. & Mrs. Kamikita[edit | edit source]

Atros[edit | edit source]
Rosy[edit | edit source]
Keiko and Rosy bonded quickly thanks to their shared histories of being made in the image of another person.
Ayako[edit | edit source]
Though the two don't interact too much in the series proper, Keiko and Ayako are still good friends, as seen by how Ayako was one of the first to befriend her when she first joined the team, and was the first to comfort her after Kappei and Uchuta's android counterparts were destroyed, obviously relating to how she lost her siblings as well.

Notes[edit | edit source]
The reason for a character from Zambot 3 being included in KotM, let alone a copy of said character, is to mostly give the series a bit more exposure in the series, and making them an android duplicate seemed like the best way to do that while maintaining the original Zambot's past already established in the show's history.
