Blue Beetle is a male, S-Class EX-Type Zero personally birthed by Queen E-34 in CC 430 while she was secluded in her room in Core Temple. He is E-34's second EX-Type Zero but considered to be her third "child". Blue Beetle possessed a wide-range of equipment sets, including three armor suit forms, and he was proficiently compatible with any weapon he can find. Aside from this, he was also a practitioner of Pray Style specializing in spears and swords. Blue Beetle had an extensive participation in the War of Prayer but was slain by Master Knight Anne Mayer with the assistance of A-10.
Blue Beetle played a major role as an antagonist to humanity in Main Episode-0 Pray. He specifically opposed Anne Mayer whom he bore extreme hatred with, going so far as to hunt her down for a duel while in Arin. It was in this same duel that he lost and was slain.
Blue Beetle is a humanoid Beast with a bipedal profile appearing akin to a tall warrior. His sharp face is characterized by six eyes that glow green; there is no visible mouth but it may have been covered by a mouthpiece. Blue Beetle also has wild gray hair flowing like a mane. In this base form, he is clad in purplish armor with yellow-white highlights.
Aside from this basic get-up, Blue Beetle wears ablative layers of different armor suits that are encased within one form from another - similar to a Matryoshka doll. Out of his three armor suit forms, Blue Beetle usually appears in his Multi-role Armor Suit.
Second Battle of ArinEdit
- Main article: Second Battle of Arin
Blue Beetle first appeared in the series when Pray revealed herself as E-34 and took over Central Order in what ensued to be the Second Battle of Arin. EX-Type Zeroes Fear and Blue Beetle were both already inside Pray's detention cell waiting on stand-by. When the cell was opened, Blue Beetle participated in purging all the Knights in Core Temple.
Blue Beetle is next seen intercepting a massive counter-attack by AUA, AE, and surviving Knights. The commander of the operation was Deputy Chief of Central Order Kamad and his twin sister Master Knight Kamal. Blue Beetle faced the entire force head-on and was seen clashing with the twins on the air, exchanging a few blows that quickly ended with the twin Knights being impaled on the Amethyst Lance. Blue Beetle then purposely landed on the bridge of the lead battleship to show them how easily he had killed the Master Knights. He then flung the corpses of the two to the bridge's windshield as if to taunt them before slicing the whole battleship in half. The counter-attacking force, horrified by what had happened, scattered in pandemonium while being picked off by Blue Beetle and other Beasts.
Battle of ValtiaEdit
- Main article: Battle of Valtia
Blue Beetle made a timely appearance during the Battle of Valtia when the New Alliance special subjugation force had cornered Blue Beetle's sister, Fear. Together with a team of Type 5 "Attendant-Guards", He warped straight into Valtia's atmosphere using a Level 5 Bio-Gate from Arin. Blue Beetle immediately destroyed the Titan-class Battlecruisers (Dalton and Minerva) that were guarding the combat zone. The surprised subjugation force attempted to stop Blue Beetle from further interfering but it was all in vain. The Sowat-class Frigates concentrated fire on the approaching Beasts with their special particle beam cannons that can take down low class EX-Type Zeroes however Blue Beetle simply activated his Volcanic Echo Shield to negate the attack. As the Beasts neared Fear, the Cross Society Crusaders and the AE Special Task Force Troopers equipped with Graviton Beam Emitters blocked them but Blue Beetle and the Attendant-Guards massacred the engaging force.
With nothing to stop them anymore, Blue Beetle and the Attendant-Guards recovered Fear and boarded a Manaan Mothership back to Arin. The Zero Breakers, too exhausted from their fight, acknowledged that it would already be suicidal at that point to stop the two from leaving.
Third Battle of ArinEdit
- Main article: Third Battle of Arin
During the Third Battle of Arin, Blue Beetle intercepted the Landfall Operation of the AUA Relief Force headed by Master Knight Anne Mayer. He used the massive Gravity Cannon that was appropriated from Central Order's armory to shred the 7th Colony of Arin that was in a trajectory to collide with the Arin Space Elevator and attempt an orbital drop for maximum destruction. Blue Beetle then led an army of Type 5 Black Sharks, Type 77s, and other Beasts in destroying the falling debris of the colony.
Blue Beetle next appeared when the remaining AUA-AE-Knights forces trapped in Arin sortied for a counter-attack operation. The Arin stragglers linked-up and coordinate their movements as a distraction so that Anne Mayer and A-10, transported by Ed aboard his fighter craft, could slip into the eroded Core Temple acting as the Queen's Nest and finally slay E-34. The majority of the force was decimated by Blue Beetle, donning his Almighty Ultimate Weapon - The Blue, with the use of MJOLNIR.
Blue Beetle then hunted down Anne Mayer thereafter. A team of Black Sharks who had surrounded Anne and A-10 was instructed by Blue Beetle to leave his "prey" for himself. While the bewildered Master Knight was thinking of why the Black Sharks awkwardly left them alone, Blue Beetle launched a barrage of particle beam attacks from the air. He also used MJOLNIR to completely level the whole area. A-10 used her own Volcanic Echo Shield to shield them from Blue Beetle's opening attack. She then fought in Anne's behest to bring down the EX-Type Zero from its aerial position. In their fight, A-10 exhausted all of her equipment and abilities but managed to force Blue Beetle to shed The Blue armor suit form. A-10 also managed to bring down Blue Beetle, now in his Blue Gladiator form, within Anne's range. While A-10 further lured Blue Beetle to pursue her, Anne jumped from a skyscraper and performed a Red Crescent Move technique that destroyed the armor suit.
Anne took over A-10 in fighting Blue Beetle, now reduced to the Multi-role Armor Suit that the Knights believed to be the EX-Type Zero's real form. Keeping in mind the resurrected Kamad's advice, Anne is able to overcome Blue Beetle's spear attack and defeat him. However, Anne immediately lowered her guard thinking that the EX-Type Zero had been slain already but Blue Beetle merely shed his ablative armor suit to reveal his true form. Fortunately for Anne, A-10 pushed her away just in the nick of time before Blue Beetle's surprise blow landed.
Anne and Blue Beetle then resumed their last round of fighting with much zeal and mutual hatred. Blue Beetle, despite being in his humanoid, base form, was still able to wield the colossal MJOLNIR with ease but Anne used a Pray Style technique to shatter MJOLNIR's crystallized particle beam blade. The two then continued fighting on the hilt, falling from mid-air, as their combat stage. Blue Beetle then unleashed a series of attack that pushed Anne to be on the defensive. When the Master Knight attempted to parry one of his attacks, Blue Beetle blew her away with the recoil of a kick on the locked swords. Staggering, Anne stood up once more and the EX-Type Zero went for the killing strike. Anne on the other hand already knew that Blue Beetle would take the initiative in her weakened state and prepared for a counter. The two dashed against each other in climatic fashion, both ready to finish the fight. As the two passed each other, Blue Beetle's body burst from the Master Knight's slicing attack - Anne emerged as the victor.
Blue Beetle decimated whole armies and navies by himself or while commanding over regiments of Beasts. His lost had a huge impact in E-34's collective firepower that enabled the Arin survivors fighting on the surface some relief. With the EX-Type Zero gone, it also meant that coordination of Beast surface operations in Arin fell momentarily.
Blue Beetle's death blew a hole through the defense lines of E-34's Nest. Master Knight Anne Mayer and her escort, A-10, were able to continue plowing through E-34's brood while heading to Core Temple without further major resistance.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Blue Beetle possessed a high-yield A-Class Core that provides ample energy to simultaneously power his particle beam weapons, Volcanic Echo Shield, and other equipment. He wielded the MJOLNIR, four Violet Crystal Swords, the Amethyst Lance, Central Order's Gravity Cannon, and numerous particle beam cannons.
Blue Beetle is a practitioner of Pray Style, notably in spear and sword techniques which he demonstrated with the Amethyst Lance and the Violet Crystal Swords respectively. He has demonstrated the following Pray Style techniques: Full Charge Maximum Thrust, Six Formation Slash, and Triangle-Torn Thrust.
Blue Beetle fights dynamically and with extreme agility. He is also shown to have a vast knowledge on numerous weaponry, enabling him to use them with a high level of skill. Aside from the above, Blue Beetle also has some leadership ability as demonstrated when he held command over teams of Beasts (most notable when he directed the interception of AUA Relief FOrce's Landfall Operation). During the Third Battle of Arin, Fear was given command of Arin's orbital defense/blockade while Blue Beetle had responsibility on surface operations - mainly in quelling the insurgency efforts of the Arin survivors, hunting down other humans, and stopping intruders from gaining access to the Nest and the Plants.
Armor Suit FormsEdit
Almighty Ultimate Weapon - The BlueEdit
The Almighty Ultimate Weapon - The Blue is a massive armor suit designed to act in carrier and bomber roles. It is the largest armor suit form of Blue Beetle. The Blue usually operates from the upper atmosphere/orbit from where it uses the high-vantage position to besiege enemy positions and blanket formations with intense, concentrated fire. This armor suit form possess multiple cores and various attached particle beam weapons that can actively intercept incoming hostiles. The Blue is further protected by its own barriers and thick armor that can withstand attacks from any and all angles even when simultaneous.
The Blue is a controller unit for several Beast Floaters that act as drones. There is also a large, independently moving shield mounted on the left side of the armor suit that is powered by its own core, making it capable of particle beam attacks as well as remotely controlled flight. Besides these drones, the Blue can also deploy assault-role low rank Beasts (possibly Type 90s) that are stored as folded discs within the recesses of the armor suit.
The Almighty Ultimate Weapon - The White is the Blue's counterpart that was worn by Fear.
The Blue Gladiator is an armor suit specifically designed for close-quarters combat and specializing in melee superiority. Despite its large frame, the Blue Gladiator still has high mobility even without the use of Aurora System. It possesses cores that are dedicated towards maintaining the maximum achievable agility through its thrusters such that A-10's advanced sensors cannot keep up with the Blue Gladiator's movements.
Multi-role Armor SuitEdit
The Multi-role Armor Suit is the armor suit form that Blue Beetle mostly appears in and is thus most known for (to the point that humanity's forces thought that it is the "true form" of Blue Beetle). The suit notably appears with four arms and large thighs. It also has four high-yield thrusters that easily propel Blue Beetle and enables flight.
This armor suit is equipped with the Volcanic Echo Shield which was taken from Central Order that provides Blue Beetle with near impenetrable defense that can negate all particle beam attacks. Four Violet Crystal Swords are also kept in pockets located inside the thighs.
Unlike the other armor suit forms, the Multi-role Armor Suit lacks its own cores but Blue Beetle's A-Class core can more than compensate for this.
