The Giga Trooper is a machine that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is a large, piloted assault mech operated by Guardian Units of the Nation.
Features and abilities
Giga Troopers have significant amounts of physical strength. They can clash with a Black Oak and can carry heavy objects.
The Spider Troupe was equipped with a Giga Trooper which they used on their raid on the New Black Comet. It was used to carry the nuclear warhead intended to destroy the comet, and was piloted by Trooper Mantle.
- The Giga Trooper originated from the Shadow the Hedgehog video game and is based off the enemy of the same name.
- Unlike its comic counterpart, it did not have a pilot controlling it. It was also smaller in the game and possessed a camouflage color scheme rather than the silver, red and yellow seen in the comic.
