Abilities[edit | edit source]
- Drill Missile
Numerous small missiles fire from the ports behind Mazinger's forearms.
- Rocket Punch
Mazinger fires one of its forearms and rockets it forward and plows through the opponent.
- Iron Cutter
Two axe-like blades pop out from both sides of both arms. When fired, they're able to cut through nearly any surface.
- Rust Hurricane
A gust of wind shoots from the grill on Mazinger's face and disintegrates the opponent in a bluish-green mist.
- Photon Beam
Two energy beams that fire from Mazinger's eyes.
- Breast Fire
A burst of fire energy that fires from the panels on Mazinger's chest.
Combo Attacks[edit | edit source]
- Double Burning Fire
Combo attack w/ Great Mazinger: Z and Great fire their Breast Fire and Breast Burn at an opponent.
- Fire Storm
Combo attack w/ Kotetsu Jeeg: Z's Breast Fire and Jeeg's Spin Storm combine to create an enormous black, white and red fiery tornado that swallows their target whole.
- Final Dynamic Special
Combo attack w/ Getter Robo G, Jeeg, Daimos, Daitarn 3 & 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, Mazinger and Jeeg hammer it with their Breast Fire and Spin Storm. Dragon comes in for the final blow with a Shine Spark. When Daitarn 3 & Raideen join later on, the two assist in the finishing blow by having Daitarn hold the opponent in place with a Sun Attack right after being lifted into the air by the Double Blizzard. Then, Raideen fires a God Arrow, which pierces the opponent's chest and acts like a honing rod for the Shine Spark. 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]
To match up closer to the other mechs featured in the series, Mazinger's height has scaled up to 24 meters/78 feet, the same height as its Shin Mazinger counterpart.
In a strange twist, the Iron Cutter is rarely used as a varient for the normal Rocket Punch. Rather, in KotM, it's used more as a bladed/melee weapon, much like how it was used in a short sequence in the Mazinger Z: Infinity movie.
