Getter Robo Wiki

I got this idea recently, that I'd like to do for fun.

The Getter Robo Nero (ゲッターロボネロ, Getta Robo Nero) is a powerful new robot created to fight the armies of the Makai Realm, lead by the Ogresaurus. The combined robot is powered by moonlight, so it can only be used at night, but it's individual components can still be used at any time of the day.

It is the titular mecha of an eponymous live action movie trilogy, where it is simply referred to as Nero.

Specifications

Nero Getter Machines

The Nero Getter Machines can transform into giant mechanical versions of their animal namesakes, unlike other Getter Machines.

  • Nero Bat - A wide and sleek aircraft that transforms into a vampire-bat, which can suck fuel out of machines, rendering enemy robots inert or turn them against each other. It's pilot is a yet-unidentified British/Caucasian male, and it was constructed by the Royal Air Force.
  • Nero Panther - A VTOL that transforms into a panther with razor sharp teeth and high senses, which can traverse the land, sky, and sea. It's pilot is a yet-unidentified African American female, and it was constructed by the US Special Forces.

      • Getter Panther's animal mode also bears some resemblence to Ravage from Transformers.

      • Getter Condor's vehicle mode resembles a cross between Black Condor's Jet Condor, and the God Phoenix from Gatchaman, a spiritual predecessor to Jetman and the larger Super Sentai series it is part of.
