Govarian is the titular robot of Psycho Armor Govarian and is a Super Robot featured regularly in The Knights of the Multiverse. A sort of prototype of the Great Mazinger, it is used by Jun Tsurugi-Hono.
History[edit | edit source]
Pre-Series[edit | edit source]
Knowing of the threat of the impending Mycenaen Empire invasion, Dr. Kenzo Kabuto used his father's designs of the Mazinger Z Super Robot to create a sort of partner unit to aid it in the coming invasion. The Govarian was developed to serve as Kenzo's prototype unit before completing the main unit, the Great Mazinger. However, Govarian proved to be almost as strong during training, so it was given to Jun to act as Great's main partner. While it often took more damage in battle than Great did, Jun and Govarian would fight valiantly throughout the Imperial Wars. Its schematics, though simplified, would then be heavily inspired in the creation of the Strike Daggers. Like Great and Getter G, Govarian would stay up and running to continue battle with any future .

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 | edit source]
- Double Burning Fire
- Final Dynamic Special
Combo attack w/ Great Mazinger, Getter Robo G, Jeeg, Daimos & Raideen (also occasionally Mazinger Z & Daitarn 3): 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.
Notes[edit | edit source]
Govarian is meant to take the place of Jun's original Super Robot, the Venus A, mostly made in an effort to give her a much stronger robot to pilot and could hold its own without Great's assistance. Of course, this connection was present nowhere in Govarian's home series, as the original Psycho Armor Govarian anime wasn't connected to the Mazinger series in any way.
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).
