Alongside the Medarot Popularity polls, the Furuani Max broadcasts on Nico Nico Douga also presented us with five brand new Medarot 7 models. Series regular Horumarin and voice actress Iku Arino presented the characters before revealing information about them, and having Horumarin sketch them. The five revealed are:
The Edge (ジ・エッジ), Helicopter-type
Soldier-themed Medarot that can Medachange into a helicopter. It was shown in one of the early battle screenshots from Famitsu, and part of its transformation can be seen briefly in the trailer.
Rouge Katze (ルージュカッツェ), Cat-type
New electricity-based cat Medarot. (Shown in the AR card demo)
Cobalt Setter (コバルトセッター), Dog-type
New dog-type that uses shooting attacks.
Ginban Fairy (ギンバンフェアリ) Figure skater-type
Skating-themed Medarot with blades on its arms. “Ginban” means ice sheet.
Chuugen Haoh (チュウゲンハオー), Chinese warrior type (CHA00-M)
According to Horuma, it’s partly based on Lu Bu from Romance of the Three Kingdoms. The name comes from 中原 (central plain) and 覇王 (supreme king). This one also showed up in the AR card demo.
