In-Game Consort Biography[]

A test subject for Aspina's latest technology. Remember, he is not primarily a mercenary.


He appears as both an ally and enemy in Armored Core: For Answer. He holds a vain and scientific perspective on various situations finding a disturbing fascination in the battle potential of enemy NEXT pilots. He normally works alongside Otsdarva in completing missions that are especially significant to The League

Initially, CUBE may prove difficult to defeat due to his NEXT's high energy and mobility. CUBE's AI typically stays close to the edges of the combat area where his mobility allows him to easily dodge single shot attacks. His NEXT, Fragile, appears to suit a close-range combat. One effective strategy is to use high amounts of missiles or lock on weaponry in the hopes that he doesn't dodge them. Alternatively, in the ranked Collared matches, it is possible to simply dodge CUBE's attacks until he runs out of ammunition, then subsequently defeat him. Various solid-shell weaponry that's effective against Primal Armor may prove effective against him.

Various glitches involving CUBE's AI may also allow for the player to defeat him without engaging him in combat. His AI may simply leave the combat area for unspecified reasons depending on the actions of the player.

In the mission "Defend Line Ark," it is also possible for CUBE's AI to get stuck inside Line Ark's large structure, allowing for the player to easily defeat him.


  • Defeat Unknown NEXT
    • Fellow Lynx. Even for I alone, this operation presents a low risk of failure. You are welcome to turn back at anytime. Operation underway.
    • Is this it? What a boring operation.
  • Defend Line Ark
    • Preparations complete.
    • It appears you have left me no choice. Initiating Plan D.
    • Now it's one against one. Test applicability increased. Excellent.
    • Energy flow is reversing from the AMS! Aaaaargh!



  • Intentional or not, CUBE is established to be a cyborg in the US version. Nothing of the sort is suggested in the Japanese version.
  • CUBE seems to be vain and self-centered; this is apparent when you partner up with him when you fight an unknown NEXT.
  • Otsdarva refers to him by the name of his NEXT, Fragile, rather than by his official pilot name.
