X-1 robots in the opening movie

The X series robots are boss enemies that appear in Persona 2: Eternal Punishment.

Appearances

Profile

The X series robots are bipedal panzer, co-developed by the Police Department and Defense Agency, and conducted by General Sugawara of the ground army. The cockpit contains a nerve transplant device to connect the pilot's brain with the operating system of the robot for enhanced synchronization. The firepower from a M249 light machine gun and L16 81mm mortar and the "Muramasa Copies" wielded on their right arms for sealing the Persona ability from Persona users temporarily suggest the purposes of development of these machines are far beyond the nominal riot control.

When the player's party hacks into the computer of the laboratory of New World Order in Kei Nanjo's route, they will learn the existence of the X series project and involvement of the army.

X-1 is first seen deployed to the Abandoned Factory by the New World Order for annihilating their contracted mafia from Taiwan, Tien Tao Lien, and Maya Amano's group. When Maya and her fellows invade Nichirinmaru, four X-1 robots are guarding Tatsuzou Sudou, one of them is taken care by Tatsuya Suou alone. In the Undersea Ruins, the player will fight Takahisa Kandori alongside four X-2 robots if Nanjo is in the party.

In the additional scenario of the PSP remake, Tatsuya Suou will fight the X-0 robot while infiltrating the laboratory.

These robots are equivalent to the Order of the Holy Lance in the Other Side, which also possess the same ability to seal Personas.

Trivia

  • The apparent differences with the Knights of the Holy Lance is the lack of flight capability but able to travel underwater. The Knights use mostly magical-based abilities, but the repertoire of the X series is entirely physical.
  • Although the X series robots are co-developed by the ground army, in the opening movie, the department name printed on the armor is "Maritime SDF" (海上自衛隊, Kaijō Jieitai)?. However, this is possibly because they are operating on Nichirinmaru, the restructured cruise ship used by NWO as their maritime headquarters.
  • The origin of the name "X" is never explained, but this coincides with the symbol "X" in Japanese culture which is known as "batsu" (ばつ*)? for "incorrect answer." "Batsu" on the other hand is also the onyomi of "punishment" (), the core concept of the main plot.
  • Since the battle interface has changed in the PSP version, the Persona-sealed status is shown given the name "Wicked Blade" (妖刀, Yōtō)? which is a well-known epithet of the blades forged by the bladesmith Muramasa Sengo.
