Devilotte de Death Satan IX is one dangerous princess.

She is apparently just a spoiled brat looking for something to do.

Princess Devilotte de Death Satan IX, otherwise known as just Devilotte (sometimes spelled Devilot), is a character from the fighting game Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness.

Biography

Concept

Devilotte's design is based on John Tenniel's illustrations for Alice in Wonderland.[1]

In the Cyberbots Official Guidebook: Alliance Army Secret Files, Kinu Nishimura reveals that she also modeled Devilotte and company after Princess Alena and her two retainers Kiryl and Borya from Dragon Quest IV.[1] That trio is likewise a headstrong princess dragging two faithful servants on an adventure, of which Xavier and Borya are the most visually similar. The rest of the staff never noticed Kinu's Dragon Quest references and modeled the team mainly after the Doronbo Gang, giving them familiar lines and appointing Xavier to have the same voice actor as Boyacky.[1]

Story

Devilotte de Death Satan IX is one dangerous princess. She and her two lackeys (Dave the scientist and Xavier the wizard) fly around space looking for people with Variant Armors so she can steal parts from them. Perhaps, all she wishes for is the VAs to add to her collection. It doesn't appear as though she is involved in either side of the dispute in the Earth Force events. She is apparently just a spoiled brat looking for something to do.

Devilotte pilots the S-008 SUPER-8, a mech designed for underwater use that resembles an octopus. The SUPER-8 is a tough mecha to fight, usually showing up near the end of the game. Its moves have names like: Red Omega, Hell Delta 1, 2 and 3, Devil X, Final O, Super Gamma, Octopus Jr. and Deathsaturn Sigma (its Cyber Ex move).

Devilotte has a crush on Gawaine, and is constantly blushing when he is near.
