Mechon M72

Mechon M72

The Mechon M72 has very similar appearances to Mechon M63 with the exception of the bulky, bulb-like extension on its arm instead of a rotating claw.


This Mechon M72 uses three arts to attack.


  • In cutscenes, Mechon M72 are the general variety seen, and seem to be one of the main "shock troops" of the Mechon race. However, in actual gameplay terms, players are usually more likely to face Mechon M63 instead.
