Cross Eye Alpha and Cross Eye Beta are twin EX-Type Zeroes both individually graded as SS-Class that were produced by the twin Queens E-99 and E-101. Their joint attack in several human worlds in CC 422 marked the first reappearance in nearly two centuries since another SS-Class was spotted; only EX-Type Zero Ingrid in CC 233 was the other such high rank beast recorded in history. Paralleling this feat, it was also the only time since Ingrid wherein a Phenomenon Weapon was wielded by Beasts; Ingrid previously used Morglay, and the Cross Eye twins now have Balisarda.

Cross Eye Alpha (red) and Beta (blue) are remarkably and fundamentally different from previous Beasts due to their close cooperation as a paired kin. This brought unprecedented power that dominated whatever battlefield the Cross Eyes fought on.

Cross Eye Alpha and Beta appear in a flashback arc of Main Episode-0 Pray covered by ME-0 (Parts 26-27) Chapters 28-29. Cross Eye Alpha was also briefly revealed in the epilogue of ME-0 as a teaser for succeeding episodes in the series.

RoleEdit

Battle of VelcheesEdit

Main article: Battle of Velchees

The AE and Knight Order combined forces were able to contain Cross Eye Alpha and Beta within Planet Velchees by exploiting the twin's protective nature for their Queens. By maintaining a constant assault on E-99's and E-101's Nest on Velchees, this would ensure that the Cross Eyes's movements would be greatly limited to within the planet only. Hundreds of Knights and thousands of troops were expended simply to sustain this strategy - thus starting the epic Battle of Velchees that had since been turned into a modern legend.

The scale and intensity of the battle turned pivotal in deciding the fate of human survival. Should the Beasts defeat humanity's forces in Velchees, they would spill over and overrun every human world thereafter. A special subjugation team of Master Knights was deployed to overturn humanity's compromising defensive stance in the battle. A counter-offensive initiative was immediately conducted that would further exploit the Cross Eye's vulnerability. AE and Knight Order deployed all forces to mount a forlorn assault on the twin Queen's Nest on CC 422.08.04. As expected, the Cross Eyes were lured to respond to this threat. Top Sword Milo and Master Knight Dry Leonhard cleared a path against the combined high rank Beast army of E-99 and E-101 in order for Master Knights Pray Mayer and Anne Mayer to get to the designated combat zone safely. Pray and Anne were seen as the best paired counterpart who can rival the twins. The Master Knight duo then trained and modified their Pray Style within six months in the battle to specifically counter the Cross Eye twins.

Though unscathed, the Cross Eyes are grounded by the G-34 attack

Meanwhile, Cross Eye Alpha and Beta are kept distracted by the Heavy Battleship Feinmann, a flotilla of Rammel-class Light Battleships, and other supporting fleets. Three G-34 Satellite Cannons prepared to open fire on the position of the EX-Type Zeroes while they were being kept preoccupied. Alpha and Beta were left unscathed from the particle beam attack, but its true purpose was meant to ground the Cross Eyes and deny them their high mobility from leaving the combat zone.

Once the Cross Eyes were pushed to the surface, they were met by Pray and Anne who engaged them in the concluding, ultimate fight. Eventually, the duo managed to gain an upper hand against the Cross Eyes. Beta was slain while Alpha, though defeated, retreated from the scene - effectively abandoning its Queens. The commanders and other observers noted that they would have to revise the map of Velchees due to the immense destruction caused by the fight. With the EX-Type Zeroes neutralized, humanity was able to proceed in systematically discarding the Nest with sustained heavy bombardment. E-99 and E-101 were then slain as well soon after.

E-99 and E-101, together with the Cross Eyes, overtook E-12 and Ingrid as the worst threat to humanity. AE and Knight Order committed nearly their entire effective fighting strength but it was all expended in frightening speed. The massive toll from the battle were: 127 armies and fleets decimated, five planets and 15 resource asteroids abandoned, and an estimated 100 million civilians dead. Though a huge price was paid for the battle's victory, humanity celebrated as it was the last known major Beast threat. Two years after in CC 424, the AE and Knight Order already predicted that the Age of Humans would come to pass within a decade.

The surviving Master Knights who took a major role during the final slaying operation were all given distinction. They had since been referred to as the 7 Heroes of the Velchees War. The carnage that Anne witnessed in the battle severely traumatized her which made her conceptualize the "Clean War" concept. To achieve this goal, she founded the anti-Beasts R&D group known as the PPP Foundation. PPP acquired Cross Eye Beta's core for their studies on applicable integration with human technology. PPP succeeded when Dr. Thor created his masterpiece, A-10, which hosts and fully controls Beta's core.

It was revealed that Cross Eye Alpha is still alive and had retreated to a remote section of outer space. Alpha remained hidden by perfectly cloaking the entire satellite moon where it was residing with Balisarda's special closed space ability. A passing human ship noticed the anomaly and the terribly confused crew confirmed with their maps that a 1500km satellite moon was missing from its supposed coordinates. Alpha then removed the cloaking to greet the disturbers.

Main article: Balisarda

Cross Eye Alpha and Beta each wielded the Phenomenon Weapon Balisarda which is known as the ultimate shield that can absorb any incoming physical attack. Balisarda can also detach its outer armor-like shell into several, split pieces that act as remote drone units. They can individually move to attack multiple targets simultaneously as willed by the user. The inner material of the weapon is revealed to be a large particle saber. Balisarda's closed space also creates a suitable environment where the user can manipulate the field for its home advantage while opponents suffer from mysterious interferences. While active, the opponents are trapped inside this combat zone and outside forces can not enter.

The Cross Eyes however are still powerful even without Balisarda as seen by the output of their particle beams and barriers. A shot of particle beam from the Cross Eye can already punch holes through a fortress or bore through earth while their barriers are strong enough to dissipate the combined outburst of three G-34 Satellite Cannons without any harm. The twins also possess extreme speed and agility that are above the stats of their fellow EX-Types. This is supplemented further by also possessing flight capabilities and enhanced physical strength. Their coordinated maneuvers can outpace the tracking limit of a normal human's eyes.

QuotesEdit

K-374

"A pair of flashing lights that struck fear into the hearts of Knights."

(Narration during the Battle of Velchees)
"The difference in power was too great. Cross Eye Alpha and Beta were different, incomparable to the EX-Type Zeros from before. It was as if the titles of Master Knight or Deputy Chief didn't exist. They slaughtered hundreds of Knights regardless of their rank. Seen as a pair of flashing lights on the battlefield, to this day, they still instill fear into the Knights."[1]
(A soldier commenting on the Cross Eyes)
"Those two were just too overwhelming. The first twin EX-Type Zeros we've encountered. They were listed as SS-Class, [which was] saved only for the strongest. Only a few have ever been given that rank...Cross Eye Alpha...Cross Eye Beta..."
(A soldier commenting on the Cross Eyes)
"Those two led an army of over a thousand High Ranks. Everyone gave up at that point. To think that every single monster in that army was a High Rank...And at least half of them were single-digits! That was probably the first time an army like that was seen in history. Honestly, we wouldn't have stood a chance even if we deployed all our knights."
(Anne and Pray readying before the ultimate fight against the Cross Eyes)
Anne Mayer: "We've fought the same opponents 24 times in the last 6 months. I pray this will be the last"
Pray Mayer: "This is the first and last chance to battle like this. This will be our last duel. Lets finish it, you Cross Eye freaks!"
