A good fight, you are now the top ranked AC. To retain this rank, you must practice. Good luck!

AC Black Dragon[]

AC Black Dragon

AC Black Dragon / Eclair

Black Dragon (known as Eclair プエクレール in japanese version) is a middleweight two-legged AC equipped with a machine gun, small missile launcher, grenade launcher and the MOONLIGHT laser blade. Due to the Human PLUS enhancements of the pilot the unit can fire the grenade launcher while moving and fire blade waves. The unit is also capable of ignoring weight restrictions.


For a No.1 ranked Raven, Necron is definitely not one you wanna trifle with. He will start off the battle by launching himself into the air and then fire off his grenades. Thanks to the aid of Human PLUS, he is able to remain airborne for long periods of time and continually hammer you down with his grenades whenever he can. During this time, he will also attempt to hit you with his MOONLIGHT blade waves, which can easily strip off 4k+ AP if it hits so you must avoid this attack at all costs!

His missiles aren't threatening at all so that's the least of your concern, besides he hardly ever uses them, the only time he resorts to using this weapon is when he's out of grenade ammo (it is possible to run him out of his grenade launcher, but it's time consuming). He will also resort to using his machine gun after a while of using his grenade launcher, but it's not nearly as heavily damaging as the blade or grenade, so this shouldn't pose too much of a problem either (unless you've already taken a suicidal amount of damage that a mere number of rounds from his machine gun is enough to kill you.)

The strategy to defeat him is to simply dodge his attacks. He hits hard and fast, but he isn't exactly the smartest foe. In fact, it's not very difficult to get behind him. Even for a Human PLUS user, his AC uses a low-power booster (for some reason), so his AC doesn't actually move as fast as you think he can. Furthermore, whenever he launches himself into the air, it takes a while for him to get a clear shot at you with his grenade launcher, so you can make use of this opportunity to predict where he might land and when he lands, hit him as hard as you can. It is possible to defeat him without using the PLUS cheat, though it may prove a little harder.

For PLUS users, all it takes is simply 3 Moonlight blade waves to his face to kill him. Choose an enclosed map like the Arena, and when the battle starts, immediately fire your Moonlight blade wave from your starting position and Necron will get stunned. From there, just keep firing your blade wave at him til' he's dead (he will keep getting stun-locked by the blade wave and he can't do anything.)




  • Necron and Black Dragon are references to From Software's game King's Field. Necron was a magician who summoned the Black Dragon Guyra to protect himself (the same Black Dragon was also the basis of Kalameet from Dark Souls). Ironically the Black Dragon could only be killed by the MOONLIGHT, the blade he equips.
  • Lord Slayer and Tiamat are his kin.
