- Sun Laser
The crest at the center of Daitarn's helmet fires a straight beam of energy.
- Sun Attack
A more advanced version of the Sun Laser, Daitarn's helmet crest fires multiple small yellow energy orbs in a scattershot-type blast. It can also be used to hold a single target in suspense when fired in a straight line.
- "Daitarn Crash!"
A follow-up move to the Sun Attack, Daitarn leaps upward and crashes through its target, usually directly through the chest, taking a chunk of the chest piece with it.
Alternate Forms and Vehicles[edit | edit source]
Daitarn's plane/spaceship form. Can reach speeds of near light speed while in space. Armed with rockets on the wings, a pair of missile launchers, twin lasers, and can even fire the Sun Laser from the nosecone.
As the name suggests, the tank-like form of Daitarn. Armed with a pair of cannons called the Double Cannon, a missile launcher on each side, and a shuriken called the Daitarn Web.
- Mach Attacker
Banjo's police cruiser-like car which can transform into a plane. When in plane form, it is referred to as the Mach Attacker. As Mach Attacker it has a pair of bladed wings called the Mach Blades and balloon-like mines from its rear called the Mach Balloons. As Mach Patrol it can release spikes called the Mach Picks and has a remote controlled box that contains firearms.
Combos[edit | edit source]
- Combination Crash
Combo attack w/ Daimos: Daimos blasts the opponent into the air with a Double Blizzard. Then, Daitarn "freezes" them in place with a Sun Attack, similarly to how they assist in the FInal Dynamic Special. Then, the two Super Robots crash (eh?) through their opponent with a Daitarn Crash and Daimo Kick.
- Final Dynamic Special
Combo attack w/ Mazinger Z, Getter Robo G, Jeeg, Daimos & Raideen (also occasionally Govarian and Great Mazinger): Daimos kicks it off by sending their enemy into the air with a Fire Blizzard. When it's fully ascended into the air, Daitarn paralyses it with a Sun Attack, followed up by Mazinger and Jeeg hammering it with their Breast Fire and Spin Storm. Raideen then fires off a God Arrow, which pierces the opponent's chest armor and acts like a honing rod for Dragon's Shine Spark, finishing them off. Other ARC Super Robots Govarian and Great Mazinger can also join in on the attack, with Govarian joining with Mazinger Z to create a Double Burning Fire, and Great energizes Raideen's arrow with a Thunder Break, causing even more damage.
Notes[edit | edit source]
In official media, Daitarn is actually uncharacteristically enormous, where it comes up to 120 meters, making it come up to about Gunbuster's waist. In KotM, its been shrunken down to about 60 meters/about 197 feet to keep it more in line with the rest of the ARC Super Robots.
