Garrod Ran is the protagonist of After War Gundam X and the pilot of the eponymous X Gundam. A shrewd and anti-social survivalist, he is hardly prepared for the trouble that came when he rescued Tiffa Adill and stole the Gundam X on one of his jobs. Forced to take the reins of the most powerful Mobile Suit of his time, Garrod finds himself caught in a war that will decide the course of human history.
Powers and Stats
Tier: At least High 8-C with regular weapons. At least 7-B with the Satellite Cannon | At least High 8-C | At least 8-B with regular weapons. At least 6-C with the Twin Satellite Cannon
Name: Garrod Ran
Origin: After War Gundam X
Classification: Mobile Suit Pilot, Vulture
Attack Potency: At least Large Building level with regular weapons (Well-placed beam rifle shots and beam saber strikes can easily vaporize other Mobile Suits), At least City level with the Satellite Cannon (Can destroy a significant portion of a space colony in a single shot) | At least Large Building level (With the loss of the Satellite Cannon, Garrod is forced to rely on its improvised weaponry, which is still more than capable of dealing with most Mobile Suits) | At least City Block level with regular weapons (All-around improvement when compared to the Gundam X), At least Island level with the Twin Satellite Cannon (Completely vaporized most of an island)
Speed: Unknown (Can easily dodge beam fire from most Mobile Suits, Even mass-production mobile suits have more propulsion than fighter jets, and the Gundams are far above them)
Lifting Strength: At least Class 100 (Mobile Suits can easily throw around tanks like toys)
Striking Strength: At least Large Building Class (Can beat back other Mobile Suits)
Durability: At least Large Building level (Shrugged off beam fire from other Mobile Suits, but more powerful Mobile Suits can still damage it)
Stamina: High (Garrod has fought for hours on end with only moderate exhaustion, and his Gundam's fusion reactor means that it rarely if ever runs out of energy)
Range: Several meters with Beam Sabers, several dozen meters with Beam Rifles, several kilometers with the Satellite Cannon(s)
Intelligence: Garrod began a street-smart thief who regularly infiltrated facilities to steal top-secret prototypes and sell them for cash, disabling Mobile Suit pilots simply by pulling them out of the cockpit. While initially inexperienced and easily trounced in Mobile Suit combat by veteran pilots, he quickly becomes a highly skilled pilot who manages to go toe-to-toe with feared pilots like the Frost Brothers (who are able to casually dispatch entire militaries on their own) on even ground.
Weaknesses: Garrod can be somewhat overconfident at times. The Satellite Cannon and its derivatives has a significant charging time and the moon must be in sight for it to be charged.
- Satellite Cannon: Gundam X activates the Satellite Cannon. After a brief charging period, it unleashes a beam of incredible destruction that easily vaporizes virtually anything in its path, taking chunks out of entire colonies. The original Gundam X also had the ability to command Bit Mobile Suits that were also armed with the Satellite Cannon, allowing Garrod to blast an opponent from multiple directions at once or across a wider area for even more devastation. However, this ability was not installed on the Double X.
- Twin Satellite Cannon: The Gundam Double X activates both Satellite Cannons mounted on its back. Like its predecessor, it has a brief charging period before unleashing an incredibly destructive beam of energy. However, the Twin Satellite Cannon's power far exceeds its original model, allowing it to easily vaporize most of an island with a fraction of its full power.
