Its kind of a major plot point. Lets just say that the LED Mirage is not made to fight normal battles, but battles on a much, much higher battleground.terminus wrote:intresting, but why is it that I aways see the LED Mirage so many times, (it dosen't realy seem that speacial, unique, or rare). And what exactly are they made to battle with the fantasy/fairy tale thing?
not exactly. The "normal" Mirage Machines (Horned, Terror, Cross, Rogue, MH Auge, Schpeltor, Speed etc) are simply very powerful Top-tier Mortar Headds. They in no way shape or form compare to a true Machine Messiah from the Super Empire era.p.s. so I'm guessing MM (like MM Auge) and Mirages (LED, KOG, Jagd, Mighty series, etc.) are on par with each other?
The Jagd Mirage is in a class all its own. No normal Mortar Headd has any chance against it...it would probably take an entire squadron of top-tier MH's piloted by very powerful Headdliners with top-grade Fatimas to destroy one. Nagano has mentioned that one of the Jagd's will be destroyed in a future battle (a very epic battle) but the circumstances of its destruction are unknown at this time.
However, regardless of how powerful the Jagd Mirage is compared to other Mortar Headds, it (probably) doesn't stand a chance against a true Machine Messiah like a Yen Xing or possibly the MM: AUGE. First of all, the Machine Messiah were meant to amplify the abilities of Super Empire Headdliners (Known as Chivalries) which are about 10 times stronger than Joker Era Headdliners. I doubt if a Joker era Headdliner could use a Machine Messiah to its full potential, which is why we will probably never see the MM: AUGE's full capabilities.
The Knight of Gold is kind of an enigma. We're not sure exactly how powerful it is. As far as Engine Output is concerned, it is slightly under the Jagd Mirage. However is it on the same scale as the LED Mirage or simply a very powerful MH like the other Mirage Machines? We're not sure, its very mysterious and like its pilot and its co-pilot, its power is not fully understood.
The LED Mirage is a freak. Its so powerful, its not even considered a Mortar Headd. It requires a new classification to measure it, so now it is known as a Mortar Messiah. It is so powerful that no MH, MM, creature, being or spirit can defeat it. Not even a Dragon and its possible for it to even challenge gods! Of course, using it is extraordinarily dangerous, which is why it is only used a few times in Joker history. The amount of destruction just one LED can wreak limits their usefulness in normal combat. They are also notoriously difficult to control and not simply any fatima/headdliner combination can control one fully.
The LED's that were used during the Colus/Hagooda war were test models for the purpose to combat-testing the LED's armor plating. They weren't full power models. The fact that Sir Sydmian (the 5th Black Knight) was able to go toe-to-toe with a LED Mirage is a testament to his skill as a pilot and Fatima EST's amazing capabilities as well as the power of Vatshu and EST's Synchronize Flutter.
Later tonight I plan to create a thread about classifyng Mortar Headds and where they fall in relation to one another. Hopefully those posters who are knowledgable about such thing will grace us with their presence soon.
