— Giant Slalom
Giant Slalom (ダイカイテン, Giant Slalom) is a mecha used by Gallibon the Destroyer.
Giant Slalom is a patriotic, proud, and friendly gentleman of a mecha. He's very old-fashioned and classy, and he always compliments his teammates in battle. Though for the most part he's pretty chill, he does have a certain edge to him. He is very determined to win a fight against the bad guys and doesn't like villains getting away with their crimes.
BackstoryGiant Slalom was the Sweet Angels first mecha and was used to combat against monsters or other threats. When Garbage Monster appeared attacking a Japanese city; the Sweet Angels were sent to take care of the monster. They acted quickly and piloted Giant Slalom to deal with Garbage Monster. Giant Slalom and Garbage Monster duked it out with each other, but then Sister B joins in on the madness, piloting her newly rebuilt Itazuran. Unfortunately for Giant Slalom, he was destroyed by the combined attacks of Garbage Monster's strength and Itazuran II's Discord Punch and Discord Kick, destroying Giant Slalom. Fortunately, the Sweet Angels came prepared and unveiled their ultimate weapon: Kashima C.
Years later after the incident, Giant Slalom was rebuilt by the Global Defense Force and given some new weapons and enhancements.
Debut: Malaysia Battle: Defeat Garbage Monster
Giant Slalom first appeared when he was deployed to help STADPA fight against Garbage Monster and the Viledrodes from attacking Malaysia. He succeeded in beating Garbage Monster and freeing Malaysia along with STADPA. Afterwards he flew off. Giant Slalom was later deployed to fight against Go G Zedus, but Go G Zedus was too much for him and badly damaged him, so Giant Slalom retreated to get repaired.
Forming a Team: Battle in Tbilisi
Giant Slalom joined TripGoji's new team consisting of him, TripGoji, Death Kappa and Kashima C. Giant Slalom was the last of the four to show up in the battle against KM! Neo Stragorah. Unfortunately, he and the rest of the team failed to defeat KM! Neo Stragorah who had managed to beat them and destroy the city. Afterwards, he took off along with his fellow teammates.
Kashima C, Giant Slalom and Death Kappa vs. KM! E! Jirass
While TripGoji was away, Giant Slalom, Kashima C and Death Kappa decided to act on their own for a bit and fight off some monsters. As a Kaijumancer beast approached their territory, Giant Slalom (along with Death Kappa and Kashima C) sprang into action. The monsters known as KM! Jirass, was a difficult monster to attack though, as it seemed to be immune to most of their attacks. Things got worse when KM! Jirass's size grew to enormous proportions due to it absorbing a powerful amount of energy, much to Giant Slalom's displeasure.
Giant Slalom fired all of his rocket cannons at the monster the best he could but it was no use. Just when all hope seemed lost though, a being named HK came in and combated KM! E! Jirass and hit the monster over the head, knocking it out unconscious. Afterwards, Giant Slalom and the gang then flew off.
Giant Slalom appeared by himself to fight against Phantamanta. After a lengthy duel with it (as well as some hotels being crushed) Giant Slalom eventually managed to force it to retreat and then flew off.
Giant Slalom was deployed to go take down an alien threat at some place in the Atlantic Ocean. Upon there, he found a crystal monster who began to taunt and monologue on how he would take down Giant Slalom with ease. Giant Slalom responded by calling him a "smartass", something that surprised the crystal monster. Giant Slalom then fought against the crystal monster. FoxMask then joined in the fray and helped out Giant Slalom.
After a lengthy duel, the two managed to chase off the crystal monster and forced it to retreat. Giant Slalom thanked FoxMask, though FoxMask questioned how Giant Slalom could emote like that, to which Giant Slalom didn't really have an answer to. Giant Slalom then rolled aways, another threat gone.
