The Kagero (Japanese for "Shadow") is a knightmare frame utilized exclusively by the Order of the Black Knights' Special Forces Group "Iga" in Code Geass Megiddo.


The original design, but with the original gold portions are also replaced with dark grey.


As its name suggests, the Kagero is the world's first stealth knightmare frame. For its intended purpose, it holds a noticeably slim profile in order to minimize its radar cross section alongside a gefjun cloak for even greater "invisibility". Meanwhile, in terms of performance, the Kagero is on a similar level to that of the Guren Isshiki, allowing them to perform lightning fast feets of movement in all areas, which in turn befits its ninja devicers. Armaments include a pair of retractable, underslung arm blades, twin hadron blasters that are also mounted on its arms and two slash harkens in its chest.

Further complimenting this arsenal, the Kagero's cockpit pod has been modified with an equipment container underneath, allowing the Kagero to transport explosives and other types of tactical gear for more specialized missions. Aside from these things however, the most notable feature of the Kagero is its reputation; due to its specialized design and being operated solely by Iga, this knightmare has come to unofficially symbolize the Special Forces Group and its secretive agendas, making their presence on the battlefield discomforting to both their Britannian adversaries as well as their fellow Black Knights.


Though it has long since gained an infamous image as Iga's signature knightmare, the Kageroactually began life under an entirely different mindset: specifically, it was meant to be Zero's next machine following the Gawain's destruction. As such, the initial design, dubbed the Zero Kagero, was not intended to be stealthy at all, but rather function as a commander type knightmare with minimal offensive capabilities. However, after it became known Lelouch, having been trained by the Knight of One, Sir Bismarck Waldstein, had a massive growth in knightmare frame piloting skills, Rakshata shelved the design, believing that when the time came the Black Knights would either recover the Mordred or she would end up constructing a new model of similar makeup.

Even so, this would not be the end of the Kagero. Through unknown means, Colonel Hanzo Shinozaki would become aware of its existence and, wishing to adopt a knightmare type exclusive to Iga alone, convinced Rakshata to refine the Kagero into a producible stealth infiltration unit. In the end, Rakshata satisfied his request, tuning the Kagero into a high end knightmare frame perfected for stealth operations, namely in its utilization of the Gefjun Cloak. Since then the Kagero has been effectively deployed and wielded, though its activities, much like those of the rest of Iga, have been kept secret from all except the Black Knights High Command.

Notably, Major Setsuna Shinozaki's 13th Special Forces Squadron "Hokage", the only Iga unit to be permanently assigned to a "regular" Black Knight Army, operates twelve Kagero as part of the 1st Knightmare Battalion "Tsunami" aboard the flagship Izumo. Despite that, non-Shinobi personnel are kept at a distance from these machines, while a specialized maintenance crew has also been deployed by Iga to maintain them.
