Ur Buster & Sin Buster (Anime-LM-OP)

Metalborg, Ur Buster & Metalborg, Sin Buster

"Metalborg" (鋼闘機メタルボーグ Metarubōgu) is a series of cards that include "Metalborg" in its card name exclusive to the Dimension Police clan, and introduced in Booster Set 16: Legion of Dragons & Blades.

The usual playstyle of Metalborgs is to give power(and sometimes even additional effects) to the units in the vanguard circle. They overpower the opponent by putting pressure such as on hit abilities and guarding restrictions.

Background

Who are the Metalborgs? (Monthly Bushiroad May 2014)

Metalborgs are mechanical lifeforms who came from a dimension different from that of Cray, similar to the Dimensional Robos.

They use the pseudonyms Metalborgs when working on Cray. Similar to the Dimensional Robos, they fight for justice; however, Metalborgs never work with Dimensional Robos as they disagree with the lenient ideologies of Dimensional Robos, who would sometimes show mercy to the villains. They are new allies (of Dimension Police) who have slightly radical philosophies, nearing the level of "justice which goes too far". It is sure that they will bring new storms among Dimension Police.


Who are the Metalborgs? (Monthly Bushiroad May 2014)

They are mechanical warriors who don't wish to fight together with "Dimensional Robos", even though both groups belong to "Dimension Police". They have "Normal Form" and "Battle Form". Initially, they called themselves "Metalworkers" and lived a life without any connection to fights. For why they became the "Metalborgs", please read "Fight, our Metalborgs!"

Even though they have become a group of warriors, they didn't forget their original task. To them, repairing destroyed buildings, rescuing citizens and rebuilding the roads are also a part of the fight. These non-combat tasks are usually carried out by members who can transform into heavy machines and vehicles, but other members are also obliged to assist in these tasks voluntarily. Though many members think "we are poor at communicating with people of other races", the residents of Star Gate welcome these awkward yet righteous warriors who restore the streets every day.

Trivia

  • The kanji "鋼闘機" can be translated as "Steel Battle Machine".
  • The English name of this archetype was initially translated as "Metal Vogue", but due to the negative feedback Bushiroad received, the name was changed to "Metalborg", before the official release.
