Govarian is the titular robot of Psycho Armor Govarian and is a mech suit featured in The Knights of the Multiverse. It is a mass-produced mech suit based off of Mazinger Z and is frequently used by EDC forces. Though a majority of them have been retired from active duty, one is still being used by New Photon/Saotome Labs director, Sayaka Yumi.
During the waining hours of the Imperial Wars, the EDC created a mass-produced Super Robot to assist the Allied Robot Corps to aid in their battles, basing their design and attacks off of the Mazinger Z and Great Mazinger. They actually proved to be quite the capable units, being almost on par with their Mazinger counterparts. Unforturnately though, during the final battle with the Mycenae Empire, almost all of the Govarians were destroyed in battle. What few units remained were only used by veteran pilots of the war, most famously by the daughter of the Photon Labs Institute, Sayaka Yumi. Their schematics would then be used heavily in the creation of the Strike Daggers.

Abilities & Equipment Edit
As its based off of the original Mazinger Z, it possesses several of its attacks, with a couple new accessories:
- Rust Hurricane
- Photon Beam
- Breast Fire
- Chain Knuckle
In place of Z's Rocket Punch, Govarian has an attack based off of a sort of fusion of Z's rocket punch and Voltes V's attack of the same name: it's able to launch its fists via a chain stored within each of its arm that's able to reach long distances and can punch through most surfaces.
ts its arm at a foe and pulls it back with an attached chain. It can use the chain to easily slice through enemies.
- Jet Pack
A jet pack attached to its back, rather than a Jet Scrander like Mazinger.
- Machine Gun Rifle
Govarian carries with it a standard-gauge assault rifle, able to fire 25 machine gun rounds per second.
Combo Attacks Edit
- Double Burning Fire
Combo attack w/ Mazinger Z: Govarian and Z fire both of their Breast Fires at an opponent.
- Final Dynamic Special
Combo attack w/ Mazinger Z, Getter Robo G, Jeeg, Daimos & Raideen (also occasionally Great Mazinger): Whenever present with all the other ARC Super Robots, Govarian will aid in the Final Dynamic Special, usually joining with Mazinger Z to create a Double Burning Fire.
Govarian's role in this series is similar to the Ichinana from Mazinger Z: Infinity as both are robots similar to the Mazinger robots. Of course though, in its original series, Govarian was a singular unit.
The decision to give Sayaka a Govarian was to replace her Diana A with a much stronger suit that would be on par with Mazinger Z & the other mechs featured in KotM.
Since the original Govarian didn't have a Rocket Punch attack in its source material, this version of the robot uses a weapon based off one of the same name used by Neo Getter Robo (which, yes, did also get its name from Voltes's attack of the same name).
