Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Zwei is a very intelligent dog, implied by Yang to be capable of using mechanical tools such as can openers, and responding correctly to Ruby's questions when needed. As a dog, he has the requisite heightened senses of smell and hearing, which allowed him to find the White Fang soldiers in "Mountain Glenn". Likely due to his Aura, Zwei has been shown to perform feats no normal dog can do. He was first introduced compressing himself into a tube alongside dozens of cans of dog food and a can opener for an undisclosed amount of time without any ill effects on his body. Later, in "No Brakes", he is shown to be fireproof and very durable, as seen when he destroys an Atlesian Paladin-290 by being lit on fire and launched by Oobleck. This is demonstrated once more in "Breach", where he survives the train explosion by taking shelter inside a Paladin, then proceeds to headbutt and defeat a nearby Beowolf.

    • I would go with zwei . As haccan is imo going to be unable to harm him at all and also zwei has been seen one shotting oponents of similar...
    • Definitely Zwei, he has so much more durability and is faster. His AP is probably at least equal to Hacchan's too
