The RX-178 Gundam Mark-II is a robot from Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam and is a mobile suit prominently featured in The Knights of the Multiverse. It is a successor of the famous RX-78-2 Gundam that served in the One Year War. After the Gryps War, it's been frequently used by The Knights in many of its battles, with Kamille Bidan, its original pilot, taking it back during the battle with the Heralds of Unicron and then keeping it for the first third of the first season in the group's war with L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. until the Zeta Gundam was repaired, and then finally staying with Elpeo Puru in Season 2.

Abilities & Equipment[edit | edit source]
- 60mm Vulcan Gun
Originally, unlike most mobile suits, the Mk-II didn't have vulcan guns attached to its head due to the enlargement of the head unit's co-processor system: rather, it was outfitted with an external Vulcan machine gun pod. But, in the time between the Mini-Series and Season 1, Washu was able to bypass this issue and give the Mk-II a pair of Vulcan machine guns in its head, loaded with 600 rounds, based off of the ones on the Zeta.
- Beam Rifle
A standard beam rifle
- Beam Sabers
The Mk-II has two beam sabers attached to its jump pack.
- Clay Bazooka
Though originally designed to fire adhesive rounds that would immobilize enemy machines rather than destroy them outright, this large bazooka is able to fire several types of ammunition, and it's normally used with conventional explosive shells. It's capable of carrying seven rounds per clip plus an extra round in the chamber.
