— Mechanical Raban
Mechanical Raban (メカニカルラバン Mekanikaru Raban?) is a mecha and one of Inconnu's generals. He is an RP character used by Gallibon the Destroyer.
Mechanical Raban's personality is still progressing as he is a newly built mecha, but as of late, Mechanical Raban is a heartless and aggressive mecha, determined to terminate his enemies whom he deems as "targets". He is a mecha of a few words, as he doesn't say much, just wants to get the work done.
Overtime though and due to working for Inconnu, Mechanical Raban has become an ax-crazy, brutal and sadistic mecha loves violence and loves his job as one of Inconnu's generals and "hitman" even more. He has no empathy towards other and is extremely hostile to those who oppose him. He is easily the most openly violent and psychotic of Inconnu's generals.
Mechanical Raban was built by Cameron Winter by orders from Emperor Tazarus to get rid of "Raban", who Tazarus believed was very suspicious and had something to do with that New Papua expedition from earlier.
Debut: Raban vs. Mechanical Raban
Mechanical Raban was then deployed to terminate Raban at a wooded area. Mechanical Raban was proven to be a very difficult opponent for Raban, setting the woods on fire and slashing him (Raban) several times on the chest, causing him to bleed. Mechanical Raban then followed Raban when he was trying to escape, but could not follow him in the water, as he couldn't swim. Instead, Mechanical Raban dropped one of his "Little Torpedoes" underwater to kill Raban. Believing Raban to be dead, he flew off.

Sealing the Deal
Mechanical Raban was present along with his comrades Inconnu and Gokidon to negotiate a deal with Emperor Tazarus to unleash Manto. Mechanical Raban mainly stood by quietly and acted as a guard for Inconnu.
Before the deadly trio went to work though, the three went into space to retrieve some datacores on some secret ship. Inconnu realized that he couldn't get there in time by himself and used Mechanical Raban and rided on him to get across. Upon Inconnu's return he only managed to get one and rided again on Mechanical Raban and flew back to base.
Upon inspecting the datacore at base, Inconnu got hit in the face and Gokidon got hit in the head by said datacore, that flew across the room. Mechanical Raban laughed at their expense, only for his behind to fall off, much to Mechanical Raban's shock. Mechanical Raban then picked himself back together, but not before getting hit by the datacore himself.
Releasing a Demon
On their first day, Mechanical Raban assisted Inconnu and Gokidon in freeing a demon from the Underworld known as Nuclear Reactor Demon. He then took off afterwards, as is job was done by the time the demon approached the city.
Releasing the Mutant Clones
Mechanical Raban along with Gokidon and Inconnu was present for the creation of the Mutant Godzilla clones and later led them into Busan, South Korea.
Gokidon's New Recruits
While Inconnu was away freeing a stone samurai demon, Mechanical Raban stayed behind and watched over the base. He was then approached by Gokidon who recruited four new monsters. Mechanical Raban got interested and wanted to see them. Once he saw the four monsters though, he was very disappointed and started to beat Gokidon with a crowbar due to his stupidity at hiring four "dumb" monsters.
However, Inconnu then arrived and told Gokidon that it was alright for him to keep the four, as Inconnu thought they had potential. Mechanical Raban then banged his head against the wall and flew aways to different room.

Breaking the Godzillan/Gamoran Alliance
Mechanical Raban along with the other four Inconnu generals showed to fight and break off the Gamorans and Godzillan's alliance. Mechanical Raban mainly fought off Gallibon and Zaranga and gave them a brutal beatdown. Before Mechanical Raban could finish them off though; Plisksen then appeared and fought off Mechanical Raban; finally giving Mechanical Raban the fight of his life. Plissken trashed Mechanical Raban, cutting his chest open and tearing off of his arm, but Mechanical Raban could still function, being at least able to fight back Plissken.
After Plissken disappeard, Inconnu then ordered Mechanical Raban to finish off Rozan, He chased her around shot many missiles at her, but was unable to finish her off and collapsed due to badly damaged by Plissken's attacks. Inconnu then stepped in and drove off Rozan for him. After Rozan fell down and then Mechanical Raban was then taken away for repairs.
The Summoning of Manto
Due to having been still in repairs due to his fight with Plissken, Mechanical Raban was one of the few Viledrode monsters who did not go to the summoning, much to his disappointment. However Gokidon was there to cheer up Mechanical Raban by offering many toys of himself (Gokidon). While Gokidon was amused, Mechanical Raban groaned.
During the aftermath, Mechanical Raban soon got repaired and was partnered up with Ballinger Z and Mechagiras to go attack someplace. The three mechas headed to Hamilton, New Zealand; as a suspicious huge blizzard had just hit there and they could bare it.
As the three evil mechas arrived in Hamilton, there they arrived and found Gallibon and Glockenspiel, ruining one of their bases. Mechanical Raban was quick to rage and then ordered Ballinger Z and Mechagiras to attack Gallibon while he would take care of Glockenspiel. Mechanical Raban then flew up at Glockenspiel, firing his Atomic Ray at him. Glockenspiel stumbled out of the ways and then charged at Mechanical Raban; Mechanical Raban then fired his finger missiles at Glockenspiel, guns a blazing. Glockenspiel then did a leaping triple flip over the missiles and tails-slapped Mechanical Raban in the face.
Mechanical Raban turned around and stretched arms to punch Glockenspiel's lights out, but then Glockenspiel fought back using his sabre to hit the arms. Glockenspiel then fired out a flintlock at Mechanical Raban, hitting him down at point-blank range.....or at least it was supposed to, as it wound up hitting Gallibon instead.
Mechanical Raban laughed and then fired his fingertip missiles at both Glockenspiel and Gallibon. As Glockenspiel kept getting hit by the missiles, he then thought up of an idea and threw his remaining 498 flintlocks at Mechanical Raban, doing nothing but ticking Mechanical Raban off...however now Glockenspiel could go much more faster. Mechanical Raban then spun his head around again, shooting his Atomic Ray at Glockenspiel this time. While Glockenspiel was hit, at the same time Glockenspiel spit out a diamond-glass shard at Mechanical Raban, causing him to stagger back.
Glockenspiel then leaped forwards and fired out a prism beam from his eyes at Mechanical Raban. Mechanical Raban fought back by firing a stream of flames at Glockenspiel, burning him up slightly. As Mechanical Raban leaped up at Glockenspiel, Glockenspiel then stabbed Mechanical Raban. Mechanical Raban was hit bad, and slashed at Glockenspiel. Bad move. Glockenspiel then reeled his foot back and switched his stance quickly, sending a cluster of diamond-glass shards at Mechanical Raban, sending him flying back. The blizzard then stopped...
As Mecahnical Raban got back up, he took off and retreated, defeated. Ballinger Z and Mechagiras traveled with him.
Pick on the Weak: He Picks on You
A few days later, Mechanical Raban (once again paired up with Ballinger Z and Mechagiras) were off elsewhere; doing whatever, when suddenly a rock hit Mechanical Raban sqaure in the head. There was a note on the rock; to which Mechanical Raban read. After finishing reading it, Mechancal Raban lambasted it, saying it mean't nothing due to the similar notes Gokidon got. However; this note was no laughing matter. From out of nowhere came Rougarou, who then suckerpunched Mechanical Raban down to the ground. As Mechanical Raban got back up, Rougarou asked him if he was if he was the same monster who beat up Raban. Mechanical Raban smugly retorted:
|“||Beat up? More like "slaughtered" hehe. Why do you ask? If you have a problem with that, too bad, it was my job to do so. Because I was programmed to be a killing machine.||„|
— Mechanical Raban
However, Rougarou revealed that Raban wasn't actually dead as to him, the dead aren't silent for he could hear them. Raban is silent. Mechanical Raban then grew alert; he asked Rougarou if he was bluffing. Rougarou said that he a saw a weak animal hide for it's life. Mechagiras also brought up to Mechanical Raban if he ever found the body to prove it. Mechanical Raban then shot near at Mecahgiras's feet for saying that. Rougarou went on about Raban; also bringing up that he was terrified, and didn't even want to be a monster. He was simply scared.
Mechanical Raban was freaking out; he couldn't believe that his hit was still alive. As Mechanical Raban ranted on, Rougarou then reached back his smaller hand, gathering up death-force energy on his fist and snapped the arm forward, smacking Mechanical Raban in the face. Ballinger Z and Mechagiras walked forward to combat Rougarou and to defend Mechanical Raban; but Rougarou held up his larger hand at the two and flicked them out of his way. Several undead crawled up from the ground.
Feared for his life, Mechanical Raban shot his missiles at Rougarou, but to no effect. Rougarou then dragged his larger hand across the ground, picking up a clump of dirt and solidified it with death-force energy, then chucked it at Mechanical Raban. Mechanical Raban then fired his Atmoic Ray at Rougarou, but Rougarou tackled Mechanical Raban.
|“||....This is going to hurt.||„|
— Mechanical Raban
The Undead begin to walk toward the other two mechas. Mechagiras and Ballinger Z kept shooting at the undead; Mechanical Raban then slashed at Rougarou. The undead drop like flies, but they kept coming at a rate they can be managed as long as the other two focus solely on them. Rougarou then hit Mechanical Raban with his larger arm, sending Mechanical Raban flying back. Then from out of the ground, a giant undead samurai monster (simply known as Samurai Undead) then rose up and assisted Rougarou in his fight against Mechanical Raban, Ballinger Z and Mechagiras.
As the fight wore on, the undead kept coming, overwhelming Mechanical Raban and his lackeys. As Mechanical Raban kept firing his missiles at Rougarou, but Rougarou didn't care, he wasn't going to leave any prisoners. With the Undead kept coming and absolutely terrified, Mechanical Raban then took off and flew away in fear. Ballinger Z and Mechagiras took off with him once more. Mechanical Raban and the other two mechas then arrived back to Inconnu and stopped there; as Mechanical Raban was not only in need of repairs but now found out that there was somebody he was afraid of. Mechanical Raban then decided to lay low for a while.
Powers & Weapons

Mechanical Raban has a fairly high amount of respect for his boss and acts as his own "hitman" so to speak, but there will be times Mechanical Raban will poke fun of Inconnu's not-so-stellar moments. However, he does not question one order by Inconnu and will gladly except the assassination missions Inconnu often gives him. He does not failing in front of Inconnu though, as he
Gokidon is Mechanical Raban's other top ally. Mechanical Raban seems to find Gokidon to be really dim and somewhat annoying, but nonetheless sees him as important.
Mechanical Raban was programmed to exterminate Raban; therefore he hates Raban with a burning passion and does not hesitate to show any empathy for him.
Though he and Rozan haven't actually said much to each other, Mechanical Raban appears to have a vendetta against Rozan, as he targets her the most out of the Godzillans.
Ballinger Z and Mechagiras
Mechanical Raban views Ballinger Z and Mechagiras as his own personal lackeys/henchmen/thugs, nothing more nothing less, though he has been shown to rely on them when dealing with a stronger foe. It's possible he does value them more, though it's not known at the moment.

Though he appeared and was built, he was never used in the story, so therefore his powers or weapons were never shown, also making it unknown what his "real" powers or weapons (if he had any) he possessed.
- Being made in 1958, Mechanical Raban actually predates Mechani-Kong by 9 years and predates MechaGodzilla by 16 years.
- His main rival is Raban and his unofficial secondary main rival is Rozan.
- Mechanical Raban was originally not supposed to be a sentient robot but was later changed into being sentient.
- Some early artwork shows that Mechanical Raban was originally mean't to look radically different. Originally, his head appeared to look more organic and his torso would have looked even more simple and oval shaped. Also his eyes look more cartoonish and he appears to be orange in color instead and lacks his stripes.
