Upon Defeating E-2 Vice in the Arena.

Title: -

Are you familiar with the name of Fixer? If you should get any mail from him, I recommend taking his advice. This is a warning from me to you. There are unwritten rules, even in the Arena. Tread carefully.

Upon Defeat.

Title: -

You're a fool to ignore my warning. I hope you meet your end when you face BB. He has been a strong presence in the Arena for many years and is a formidable opponent. Angering him is not in your best interest.


Royal Mist is shown to be a very competitive pilot whose sole interest is improving his rankings and statistics. When faced with defeat, it is shown that he becomes quite irritated and bitter. This shows that he is prone to jealousy and is selfish in his endeavors to reach the top of the Arena.

AC KaiserEdit

AC Kaiser

AC Kaiser

AC Kaiser is an exceptionally well armored heavyweight bipedal AC which is built for the purpose of bringing an incredible amount of force to bare as fast as possible. The unit is armed with an energy-based exceed orbit core, a spread-shot howitzer, a double barrel shotgun, interlocking missile extensions and a back mounted dual missile launcher double back weapon. The unit's mobility and energy capacity are also strengthened due to being equipped with OP-INTENSIFY.

Royal Mist can crack open even the most heavily armored AC's in mere seconds. A lightly armored AC won't make it past the third volley of missiles, which can be fired eight at a time, unless it is equipped with a generous missile interception system, decoys, or simply really fast. Kaiser's strengths include rather excessive energy resistance, exceptional cooling, prolonged flight capability, powerful close range combat, and lethal long range. However, all of this comes at the price of speed and maneuverability. While Royal Mist's incredibly aggressive piloting style makes up for his AC general lack of of agility, a pilot that can cross the arena without taking too much damage and flank Kaiser is capable of taking it out.



In-Game InformationEdit

A rare mission participant, his efforts are directed solely towards improving his standing in the Arena. The AC he pilots is designed to adapt to changing battle conditions and does so effectively. His rivals are never given a moments pause.


Royal Mist will generally make an impression on most pilots. Royal Mist will almost always activate his extensions and exceed orbits and take to the air in order to rain down missiles with the first volley. Two more volleys of missiles and howitzer clusters will follow immediately after. Royal Mist will then proceed to do anything and everything possible to hammer you with his shotgun, exceed orbit cannons and howitzer. Staying out of his line of sight is crucial. A quick AC with a machine gun is recommended. Royal Mist can take a fair amount of punishment so if your AC can not deal an exceptional amount of damage quickly, be prepared for a drawn out battle.

It is recommended to immediately close the distance between you and fight at close range if his missile volleys are becoming a nuisance. From there, heavier weapons shouldn't be hard to hit with.

Royal Mist is both a consort and opponent in the Extra Arena. As a consort, he is excellent no matter what type of AC you pilot and you should have no problem breezing through the Extra Arena with him at your side. Funnily enough, Royal Mist is available as a consort even when fighting him and Valkyrie.

In the Extra Arena, he is partnered with Valkyrie. As mentioned before, Royal Mist can be taken as a consort and the two will duke it out. Focus on Valkyrie and then close in after your done with her and two have worn each other down. Bring shell-based weaponry since he has poor resistance to it.



The name Kaiser refers to the German title which translates to "Emperor". Given that this is the name of Royal Mist's AC, this may indicate that he comes from German descent or nobility.
