information(Especialy the person who sent me Gai's Acquisition Process) please
E-Mail me.

 I coulden't have done this without you guys double checking my findings and

 Although this site is in Japanese, it is still a Treasure Trove of SRW A

  Another Japanese site, this has basicly all the Information you could ever
want^_~ Thanks to Yuu Kajima for giving me the URL:

several new characters, verified some names, corrected some information

  Version .03: Added Mass Pro Great Maz, Verified Lalah's convince process.
Verified Master Asia and Funisaki's process. Fixed Aina's process. Lots of
little changes as well. Thanks to All the People who E-Mailed me with name
Corrections..Especially the person who sent me the Information on Grendizer. I
Lost your E-Mail though -_- SUPER Special Thanks to Arek from the SRW Board,
who stunned us all with the Convince Process for the Previously thought
unattainable Gato and GP02a!

   Current Information:

   Hideen Characters/Units


  If Ryouma has 5 Kills after a certain Stage on the Super Robot Path(Not sure
which one) she'll join you.

  Aina Sahalian, Her Prototype Zaku, and the Asparas

    Aina and her Zaku are both Compulsory, and you'll recieve them as part of
the story no matter what. However, there is a way to recieve the Unit
'Asparas', which is what She is piloting. On stage Six Aina will pop out as
Enemy reinforcements after Char and Gato appear. Simply have Shiro use the
'Convince' command on her and then reduce her HP until she retreats. The next
stage, Stage 7, simply do not Destroy Aina's Asparas. If she is still alive at
stage end(That is, the only enemy character left) You'll not only Recieve her,
the Prototype Zaku, but the Asparas as well!

   Minerva X:

       Minerva X is very easy to get. On Stage 7 Convince her with Kouji while
Ankoku Dai-Shogun is still alive(IOW: Don't blow him up^_~). If Dark Shogun is
still alive then Minerva X will become an NPC and be useable if she survives.
Note: Althought Minerva X comes as Unpiloted, you have to assign a Pilot to her
to use it. Also note: If your going for the Asparas and Miyuki be sure to leave
some Fodder for Minerva X after you convince her, as she'll be quite happy to
blow them up otherwise -_-

  Getta Q With Miyuki as the Pilot:

   While the Getta Q and Michiru become useable as part of the plot, it's
possible to recieve Miyuki as well. You simply have to Attack Getta Q with All
3 Forms of the Getta Robo(Initianting a Coversation each time) and then
Convince her with Ryouma While One of the 'Bosses' that appear with her are
still alive. While it's not known which one at this time, your better off doing
it while all of 'em are alive, since Dark shogun needs to be Alive to convince
Minerva X anyway^_~

 Note: Minerva X, Miyuki, and the Asparas can be obtained on any route.

 Chars Gelgoog:
    It's possible to recieve Char's Gelgoog as a Useable Unit after Stage 7.
Simply blow Char up in stage 7 and the Gelgoog is yours. Make sure that you
Blow Him Up, and not simply force him to retreat.

     It's possible to recieve the G-Fighter instead of the Full Armor Gundam.
In order to do this, Sayla must have at LEAST 10 Kills by the End of Stage 7.
If she does then you'll recieve the G-Fighter. Sayla apparently leaves after
the 1st Branch: It's rumored that if her Kills Exceed Amuro's at that point
then she won't. This rumor has been proven false -_-. Is there anyway to get
her to stay? If you take Space Route this Unit is the Default...The 10 Kills or
Greater is only nesscary if you go Earth Route.

  Lala Sun And the Elmeth:

    On the Space Route, Lala will appear on Several Maps. In order to get her
you need to have Amuro AND Sayla(And Possibly Camille) Attack Both HER and CHAR
Everytime! If you do this then on Map 12 after Amuro blows up Char he can
Convince her, and she comes with the Elmeth too! Thanks to everyone on the
GameFAQs Message Board and at the SRW Millenium board for FINALY Verifying the
exact process.

 Gai Daigouji(Jiro Yamada):
     On Map 9 of the Space Route, Gai, Akito, and the Nadesico will try to
cross the map. Unfortunetly their path goes right through The 3 Tri-stars, Char
and Gato. If you can manage to Keep All 3 of them in Good health and high HP
long enough for them to cross the map, then Gai is yours. If any of them fall
into Critical Status though, Gai will blow himself up. Good Luck!

   Four Murasame OR Rosmaia Badam:

     A: You'll have to choose between the 2. When you first find them on Earth
Route, just make sure you don't blow the Psycho Gundams Up(Reduce 'em to around
2,000 Hp or so) If your on Space Route, don't worry about that step. Now,
you'll evenutaly reach a mission with some Dragonar Enemys and a BIG Bridge
going down the Middle of the Map(If Devil Soldiers appear in the water, it's
the map I'm talking about). On this Map Make SURE you Scramble Camille. Have
Him Convince BOTH Rosmaia and Four, and then Reduce their Psycho Gundams to
around 2000 hp or so. If they don't retreat, Blow them up. Note that if you
don't convince one of them here, you won't have the option of choosing between
them later(So if you only convince Rosmaia on this map but not Four, you'll
never be able to get Four)

    B: A Few Maps Later Camille will automaticly Deploy in the Z Gundam(It's
the Stage where Master Asia is an NPC). Get Camille up there FAST(Master Asia
WILL Blow up the Psycho Gundams(And Allenby too, but that's further down) if
you give him the chance. Have Camille Convince THE ONE YOU WANT! And Then BLOW
UP THEIR PSYCHO GUNDAM FIRST! The Remaining Character is Unrecruitable.

   Allenby Bliskey and the Nobel Gundam

  A: EVERY STAGE that Allenby Appears in have Domon Convince and then attack
her until she retreats(Do NOT Blow her up). If the Convince command is
unavailable, then just attack her. It's not nessescary to take Earth Route on
the first Split to get her. On the Map AFTER Camille Gets the Z Gundam(The one
where Domon and the Shuffle Union all Deploy on their own) Make SURE you
Scramble Rain in the Rising Gundam. When Allenby appears have RAIN CONVINCE HER
FIRST! Rain MUST Convince her first to get Allenby! After RAIN CONVINCES HER,
THEN Use Domon! And Then Have Domon Blow her up! You'll get her and the Nobel
Gundam after the Stage.

  Master Asia and the Master Gundam

    RIght now the Full Method is still Unknown, but here is what we believe
will work:

  Take the Earth Route at the first Split
  Domon Deals the Killing Blow to Master Asia whenever he shows up
  Choose Guinea Highlands after the 2nd Split
  Convince Allenby
  Domon Attacks Master Asia Twice on the Stage that you get Allenby on, Deals
Master Asia the final Blow, and Domon's level is Higher then Master Asias.

 FuniSaki The Gundam Horse:
      Funisaki will join your Group if Domon has at least 30 kills by around
stage 30.

  Butterfly Demon/Oni:

    At the 2nd Split choose to go to Big Falcon. The Butterfly Demon will be
one of the Enemys. Have Ryouma convince her.

    I have NO Idea WHAT this unit is. You can only get it by going to the
Nabara connection at the second split though. It joins you with Combattler V

     If Ken has 30 Kills by Stage 31 he'll join you permanently.

 Anavel 'Nightmare of Solomon' Gato and the GP02a Physalis

  MANY Thanks to Arek's suprise post for this Process:

  1: On the Desert Maps(Maps 6 and 7 respectively) make sure you Destroy the

  2: Take the Space route and then have Kou blast Gato whenever he can. Make
sure to DESTROY and not Force a Retreat^_~

  3: Later on(After Quattro/Char Joins) You'll need to attack Gato with Kou,
Attack Gato with Quattro and then Have Quattro destroy him

  4: Next stage, Gato shows up in the Nuel Ziel. Repeat the Process(Attack with
Kou, then Quattro, then blow up with Quattro)

  5: LATE in the Game, when you invade Axis(Next to Last Stage) Gato will Join

  Quattro and Kou's Kill Points MAY Affect this, but it's not been proven

 Fire Blizzard Freezer Storm:

  In order to get Daimos' most powerful move, you must:
    Go to the Guinea Highlands


  In order to get Combattler V's most powerful move, you must:
     Go to Nangen Connection

 Chodenji Ball Tenkoken No V Giri:

    In order to get Voltes V's most powerful move, you must:
      Go to Big Falcon


    A: Later in the game you'll be controling Malliot(A Dragonar Enemy you
faced previously) solo for a few rounds. After your guys appear the Getta 2 and
Drill-Grendizer will Deploy and disapear for several rounds. When they Reappear
there will be a Female Pilot among the Enemy's Reinforcements(NOT Cima! Cima is
in the robot with the Beam Machine Gun Weapon[Gebera Tetra]). Have The
Drill-Grendizer attack it, Kill the Boss Mech Nearby, Have Drill Gendizer
attack again and then SEPERATE iT and have the Pilot of the Drill Spacer
Convince her. Like the Butterfly Demon, you only recieve her as a Pilot and not
her unit.

  A Getta Enemy in a Getta-Roboish Unit:
       He'll Join as an NPC on the Map you get the Getta Dragon. If he survives
then he'll join you

       Norris Packard and the Gouf Custom:
          On the Map that Guineas attacks with the Asparas 3, Shiro AND Aina
MUST Attack Norris Each and THEN Guineas Each And THEN Norris must be left
alive until all other enemy units(Inclurding Reinforcements) are defeated. If
The Above was fufilled he'll talk to Aina and then Join you with his Unit. You
may not have to have the Talks with Guineas, but I suggest it(If only to have
Closure on the 08th MS Teams plot^_~)

 Puru and Puru 2:
     On the same Map you can get Norris you must Destroy Gremmys Units, and
then use Cammile to attack and then convince Puru. Then turn around and use
Puru to Blow up Puru 2.

 Keep Mushahi:

       It's possibly to keep Mushahi as a Support Pilot. The only Requirement
is to have Ryouma with 15 or More Kills by a Certain Stage(Stage 15 I think)

    Mass Produced Great Mazinger:
       If Tetsuya has 30 or more kills by Stage 30 you'll recieve this unit.

     Map 31- If Quattro has at least 30 kills you'll recieve it after the map.
Note that the Sazabi and FAZZ are Exclusive: You can't recieve both in the Same
Game. Sazabi will Only appear if you go with the Nadesico after Map 31, FAZZ if
you go with The Ra Kalium.

 FAZZ(Full Armor Double Zeta):
       Judo needs an Unknown number of kills(Estimated at around 10 Kills) by
stage 36, and you have to choose to go with the Ra Kalium after map 31.

  Did you Know?

    After you get the Getta Dragon you KEEP the Original Getta Robo! They even
have combination attacks!

  Simiarly: When you get the Shin Getta, you keep the Getta Dragon! And Guess
what: MORE combination attacks!

  You keep the F Type Aestavlis Frame(Lunar) Akito uses in one map. It can only
be used in Space Stages, and you only have One, but it's a Decently Powerful

  The Stage Route you take can affect the Units and Attacks you get. For
Instance, you have to choose to go into the Devil Colony in order for Rain and
Domon to use the Love Love Tenkyouken, and in order to keep the Nadesico Guy in
the Gekigan Type Suit, you have to choose to go with the Nadesico around stage

  There is no Way to keep the Dragonar Unit 0. You'll have it for the 1st 2
maps on the Real Robot Route and then you'll lose it.

  There is no way to Convince your Rival Character.

   Gundam Forever?: Considering how late you get the Nu Gundam, Powering up the
Gundam is a good Idea. Wether your using Full Armor Gundam or the G-Fighter,
both are powerful units and well worth the Upgrade costs.

 Mazinkaiser is not in the game...Stop Asking.

 Similary: It's impossible to keep the Speigal Gundam

    1: How do I perform the Shuffle Domain Ken?

    You have to have passed the Guinea Highlands stage. God Gundam, Bolt
Gundam, Maxter Gundam, and Rose Gundam have to be in S Mode(130 Morale). They
have to surrond the enemy(With the 5th one Under/Next to 2 of the others..Kinda
like a + Shape with the Enemy in the center and the 5th man in one of the
Pluses corners). It costs 140 Energy.

   2: Why don't I have Love Love Tenkyouken?

     First off, Both Domon and Rain need 140 morale. Secondly, You HAD to have
Gone though the Scene where they use it to Destroy the Devil Gundam, which you
only see if you go with the Near Argama after Ken leaves your team(Devil

   3: How do I convince my Rival?

    You Can't

   4: Can I get Gato?

     Yes. See the process earlier in the guide

   5: Whats with that 2nd Screen when I scramble an Aestivalis?

      Your choosing the Frame that your unit is gonna use. You choices are
dependent on where your fighting. On Earth you can use the Artillery and Aerial
Frames. In Space/Colonys/Moon you can use Zero G, Artillery, and F Type Frames

  Well, That's it for now! Expect the next Update soon! ^_~
