The AMX-010 ZZ (Double Zeta) Gundam is a mech from Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ and is a transformable mobile suit featured Knights of the Multiverse Season 2. It was created by Axis Zeon as a mix between the Zeta Gundam and the Getter Robo G. While it's mainly piloted by Judau Ashta, he and Roux Louka occasionally trade mobile suits during certain battles due to the Zeta Plus A1's lighter weight and better mobility.

Weapons & Armaments[edit | edit source]
- 60mm Double Vulcan Gun
As with many mobile suits, the ZZ Gundam has a pair of 60mm double vulcan guns mounted onto its head, for a total of four guns and they are loaded with 400 rounds.
- Wing Shield
The ZZ Gundam mounts a pair of shields on its forearms. They also serve as wings/control surfaces for the G-Fortress and Core Top to increase mobility in the atmosphere.
- 21-tube Missile Launcher
The ZZ Gundam has a pair of missile launchers mounted on its backpack in mobile suit mode, and on its main body in G-Fortress mode, as well as on the Core Base when separated. Each missile launcher possesses 21-tubes that are loaded with AMA-13S small missiles. Also the Neo Core Fighter, which serves as the cockpit for the mobile suit and the Core Base, can also mount a pair of missile launchers that load with small missiles.
- Double Beam Rifle
The ZZ Gundam's primary ranged weapon, the double beam rifle is powered by a built-in small generator and can also be supplied with energy from the mobile suit. It possesses two barrels with incredibly high power ratings that need to be replaced every 200 shots, and a cockpit at the back. The double beam rifle mounts on the main body when the ZZ Gundam is in G-Fortress mode or when the Core Top is separated; however, the barrels are rotated backwards and positioned underneath the body while its cockpit will face forward. This cockpit can be used to pilot the G-Fortress or the Core Top but is inoperable in mobile suit mode, so anyone in the double beam rifle's cockpit when the ZZ Gundam transforms is essentially stuck on the butt of a dangerous beam rifle.
- Hyper Beam Saber/Beam Cannon
The ZZ Gundam has a pair of hyper beam sabers mounted on its backpack. The hilts of these beam sabers are easily three times larger than other beam sabers and each emits a much longer and more powerful blade that can easily cut through several mobile suits in a single swing. Its blade length of about 1.5 times that of regular beam saber's also makes it possible to easily break armor made of Gundarium alloy. The Hyper Beam Sabers can also double as beam cannons when attached to the backpack. The beam cannon mode can be used in MS form, G-Fortress mode or when the Core Base is separated.
- High Mega Cannon
Mounted in the center of the ZZ Gundam's head is a high mega cannon. This weapon is quite possibly the most powerful beam weapon used by a mobile suit created in the Universal Century universe, as well as one of the most powerful weapon mounted on a mech suit in the series as a whole, with its power seriously damaging a mobile suit with even a glancing hit, and can completely destroy a standard mobile suit shield making it impossible to block the beam. However, its power is also its biggest weakness, as the ZZ's reactor is unable to handle repeated usage of the high mega cannon. The high mega cannon is operable in mobile suit mode only.
