The ASW-G-08-4X4 Gundam Barbataurus (ガンダムバルバタウロス Gandamu barubataurosu?) is a Gunpla that appears in the Gundam Breaker Battlogue ONA.
Technology & Combat Characteristics
A custom Gunpla derived from Gundam Barbaric. By connecting two Gundam frames, it has been transformed into a four-legged silhouette with a centaur motif. It is the embodiment of jinba ittai, the Japanese concept of the unity of the rider and their steed as one body.
A pair of curved handheld blades for close combat, they also transform into handguns for ranged attacks. The twin blades can be combined together to create the limbs of a bow, with crackling red lightning forming the string between the two blades. The Barbataurus can fire arrows from the bow in this configuration. The twin blades can be mounted on the side armor when not in use.
A longer sword used for close combat, similar to the long sword used by the Gundam Barbatos. It can be stored on the side armor.
Mounted on the rear, it is similar in function to the tail blade from the Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex. This whip-like appendage ends in a three-bladed head.
