Biography

Story

Power Stone

This miner from Dawnbolta has nerves of solid steel and never gets upset. He is journeying from mine to mine to excavate the legendary Power Stones. In fighting, he relies on his unrivaled strength.

In his ending, Gunrock finds the Power Stone he had been searching for. Back in his hometown at his favorite bar, he is seen playing cards. With help from his Power Stone, he gains a winning hand and wins the game. He buys the entire bar a round of drinks while confidently holding up a glass in one hand and clutching his Power Stone in the other.

Power Stone 2

Gunrock is bored with his everyday life. One day, he hears about a floating castle. They say it guards an ultimate treasure that no one has ever seen.

"I must get the treasure!" A few days later, the floating castle emerges from the clouds as the rumors foretold. Gunrock gets into a huge cannon, points it toward the castle ... and fires!

"Wait for me! All the treasures in the world will be mine!"

Gameplay

Gunrock has a bar-room brawler fighting style. As a power fighter, he is one of the strongest characters but also one of the slowests, making it hard to avoid attacks. He can throw heavy objects faster than any other fighter and has good range with his Power Drives. His earthquake can stun the opponent so they can't avoid the attack unless they jump first. In Power Stone Collection, he unlocks the Giant Boots.

Power Drives and Power Fusions

  • Gun Gun Rock: Tosses a large rock at his opponent.
  • Rock Crush: Jumps into the air and smashes to the ground, causing his opponent to become dizzy. In the anime, Gunrock calls this "Earth Slab" (not used in Power Stone 2).
  • Rock n' Roll: Rolls into a ball, smashing into opponents in his way.
  • Earthquake: Jumps into the air and smashes down into the ground, stunning enemies nearby. He then summons large rocks to fall out of the sky, causing high damage to those struck by them.

Other appearances

Anime

In the anime, he is from Gold Land and has five children. Falcon meets him for the first time at the Gold Land casino where he challenges him to a game of poker and bets his Gold Stone for his Power Stone. However, Falcon ended up losing the game and had no choice but to surrender his Power Stone to him. Falcon later on pays a visit at his place and begs him to return it to him. Gunrock agrees but tells him that he must first fight him to win it back. During the battle he reveals that his stone is similar to Falcon's and that he can change into Heavy Tank with it.

Gunrock apparently had a crush on Ayame's brother and even wanted to marry him until he found out his true gender. In the end of the anime, Gunrock eventually ends up marrying a girl named Cassie (who originally liked Falcon) and had three more children with her. Like Wang-Tang, Gunrock does not travel with Falcon and also has many absences in the anime. In the game, his bandana and gloves are blue, but in the anime, it is yellow.

Trivia

  • When in Power Change, he is known as the "Heavy Tank" and its design bears a resemblance to The Thing from Marvel Comics' super hero team Fantastic Four.
    • This is because Gunrock is named after The Thing's localized Japanese name Ganrock which was used for the 1960's cartoon, referred to a 宇宙忍者ゴムズ- Uchuu Ninja Golmes (a mashup of the Japanese word Gomu and Sherlock Holmes' surname). While having very much the same backstory and personality, his catchphrase was changed from "It's CLOBBERIN' TIME!" to "MUSHU MURA MURA!" (ムッシュ!ムラムラー!).
