Tobikage (translated as "Flying Shadow") is the titular main robot from Ninja Senshi Tobikage and is a major supporting character introduced in the first season of The Knights of the Multiverse. Originally created by the evil organization L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N., he turned against them when he discovered how unhonorable and vile their tactics were, and became a valuable ally to The Crystal Knights.
Unlike most of the androids seen in the series, Tobikage is quite tall, standing at 3.6 m (12 ft) tall and weighing 500 kg (1,100 lb).
With how many moves and mannerisms the L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. ensemble programmed into him from all sorts of ninja books/movies/shows, Tobikage is an archetypal ninja: very honorable, stealthy, and very quiet & distant, only speaking when needed to. He's also quite polite and apologetic, as seen with how he apologized for the trouble he caused. He also despises cheating and trickery, seen by how offended he got when some of the L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. had kidnapped Usagi as incentive for the Knights to continue their duel.
Season 1 Edit
Tobikage was originally created to destroy the Crystal Knights, who many of them theorized to be the Crystal Knights' strongest robot thanks to his "advanced A.I.".
Season 2 Edit
Season 3 Edit
Abilities & Equipment Edit
- Super Speed
Thanks to his small stature (being about as tall as Pink Diamond), Tobikage is able to move at such speeds that he appears to turn invisble, flashing out of sight in a second.
- Enhanced Strength
Despite his small size, Tobikage is as strong as any other mecha.
Like all good ninjas, Tobikage has a katana-like sword housed in a large scabbard on his back. It is strong enough to slice entire boulders in half.
- Laser Rifle
Tobikage is able to convert his scabbard into a laser rifle, able to several shots per second or single shots at a time like a sniper rifle.
- Throwing Stars
- Machine Gun Slash
Tobikage is able to slash/stab at least dozens of times per second at extreme speeds.
Originally Tobikage saw the Knights as simply his targets, his sole reason for being created, but as he observed them, he began to see him as a worthy opponent with how much compassion he showed towards his allies.
