Garo is a Makai Armor that specializes in long sword combat. Whoever wields the armor shall take the title as Golden Knight or Golden Knight Garo (黄金騎士・牙狼（ガロ） Ōgon Kishi Garo, lit. "Fanged Wolf"). In the series, Vanishing Line, the armor belongs to Sword.
Description & CharacteristicsEdit
The design of the armor and equipment is partially inspired by Disney's TRON and Marvel's Ghost Rider. Vanishing Line's iteration of the armor is bulkier and mechanical in appearance. The original armor had secret retractable grappling hooks on the back of its armor; this version exposes it. Featured as two trailing tassels ending in sharp blades. When charged with ki (life energy), the armor glows with bright purple/pink accents at times and has red eyes.
Unlike the original armor system though, this universe has a stronger focus on modern technology. While the original had a Madōba (armored magical horse), Sword has his motorcycle and Zaruba. The ring acts as a key and activates the bike. Once loaded into the bike, Zaruba has full control of the bike and acts as its pilot when Sword needs assistance. Because carrying Garoken would be noticeable by civilians, it's usually hidden inside a retractable compartment within the bike frame. When Garoken is needed, Zaruba can position the bike within distance to launch the sword to him. When summoning the armor, that power extends to the bike, giving Zaruba a golden armored form. With it, Zaruba can also engage in combat. However, Garo's capabilities and equipment would go through a major change after Zaruba's destruction.
Zaruba sacrificed himself by ramming the motorcycle into Knight to protect Sophie. The motorcycle was destroyed and half of Zaruba's head was gone. As the ring faded, Sword collected the remains of Zaruba's magic and punched it through the summoning halo of Garo, bonding the remains of its power into Garo. The armor's overall mass and thickness nearly doubled, giving Sword greater defensive and offensive power.
Weapons & EquipmentEdit
- Garo Sword
While abilities and appearance of the sword's transformed state remains consistent with other incarnations, Vanishing Line's iteration of the Garo Sword in its normal conditions looked like a large, collapsible greatsword with mechanical design around the size of Garo Sword in original universe when still in Gōki's possession.
