Daikessen! has speed-up loading time, full voice acting and the gattai

universe.

III. Warships
-------------

In Daikessen! there are warships available and they're able to repair some 
HP damage.

1. Kujira 20051D

The first warship you'll recieve in Daikessen! which is in a form of a blue
whale with wings (the name 'kujira' is the Japanese word for whale). Its
hangar can hold three units.

Weapons : - Salt Gun
          - Over Boost

You'll get the Kujira on episode 5, along with Getta Zan

2. Texas Idoukan

The second warship in Daikessen! It was built by the World Federation Troops
to repel against the invasion of Hyakki Teikoku (Hundred Demons Empire) and 
Professor Landou's Metal Beast forces. Its movement is quite slow on the 
ground, but it can go fast while in the sea. The hangar can hold five units, 
however.

Weapons : - Taichuu Laser
          - Dover Hou

You'll get the Texas on episode 8, along with the Federation super robots.

3. Getta Emperor

The third warship in Daikessen! and the last unit which is made with the
Getta Energy. Built by Prof. Saotome, as he stated that Getta Robo was built
for space cultivation. It has quite fast movement and can go for far range.
The important stuff is the hangar can hold five units and its energy can be
replenished. 

Weapons : - Emperor Beam

You'll get this on episode 20, as the replacement for the former Kujira.
 
IV. Other units
---------------

This section talks about some other units in Daikessen!, besides those rode
by the Getta Team and the World Federation.

1. Lady Command

Getta Team's very own support craft. The appearance of this cute white craft
was in Getta Robo G and the pilot is none other than Saotome Michiru. For
note that the Lady Command is the replacement of Michiru's Command Machine,
which was destroyed in the Getta Robo anime series. It can replenish energy
for some units, but not for those which contains Getta Energy like the Getta
Robo generations.

Weapons : - Choun Vulcan

2. BT-23

This is the first unit that your chosen pilot (Akira or Kei) will use in the
beginning of the Daikessen! game. The appearance of this unit was in the
manga and in Change!! Getta Robo OVA as a military unit. It can replenish
some HP damage.

Weapons : - Drill Attack
          - Vulcan

Misc. Stuff
-----------

This section talks about some other things outside the guide, but still
related to the Getta Robo Daikessen! Some of them are hints for the game.

On episode 9, the units that available are Getta Robo, Getta Robo G, Getta 
Robo Zan, Getta Robo Gou, Kujira, Texas Mac and Stealper. You probably need
more units to help you, right?
So, here's the requirements of pilots for this mission.
- Ryouma, Hayato and Benkei in Getta G
- Akira/Kei, Linda, Musashi in Getta Robo (Put Linda on the Jaguar unit)
- Akane, Tsubaki, Kaede in Getta Zan
- Gou, Shou, Kai in Getta Gou
- Jack, Mary in Texas Mac
- Schwartz, Lambert in Stealper
- Michiru in Lady Command, for replenishing Kujira's energy.
- Shatner in BT-23, for repairing some damage.

On episode 14, you need to protect the Saotome Research Insitute from the
invasion of the Konchuu Gundan (Mutant Insect Soldiers) only with the Kujira 
and Black Getta. Choose your pilot carefully, especially those whose has 
highest rate in hand to hand combat (close range attacks) like Ryouma or Gou
who has the ressurection skill.
I just got rumors about Black Getta, that it can go berserk if it gets 
destroyed like Eva 01. If this is true, please watch your back.

At the end of that episode, there are three option of countries that you'll
headed to repel Landou's troops that spread through out those countries. The
options are :
1. Germany (headed by Batt Shogun/General Batt)
2. Rusia (headed by Shitei Maou Gore/King Gore)
3. England (headed by Burai Taitei/Emperor Burai)

My recommendations are head to Germany first, then to England. Then Rusia
automaticaly will be your last destination, with hopes that your pilots' 
levels are raised by battles in Germany and England.

If you like to transfer some Federation pilots into the old Getta units,
here's also my recommendated options.
- Shatner for Getta 1, especially if you have the Getta Machinegun
- Bob Bosner for Getta 2
- Sam Bosner for Getta 3
- Linda for Black Getta (optional)

If you finished the game totally with either Akira or Kei, you'll see the
ending anime movie. There are scene of all Getta units, including Black 
Getta and Shin Dragon, lined in the hangar. The pilots are in front of them,
with both Akira and Kei standing together in the corner.
This makes me wonder if both complete data of Akira and Kei can be combined.
If there's anyone who like to give their opinion on this, please do send
them via email.

Closing Lines And Credits
-------------------------

This section ends this guide with some closing lines and credits that 
inspires the making of this guide.

For my personal opinion, I say that Getta Robo Daikessen! is a good game,
indeed. Beside its gameplay and graphics, the difficulty is quite chalenging
and of course, the gattai tests which made Getta fans (including myself)
felt like they're one of the Getta Team. So .... CHEEENJI! GETTAAAAAA!
