The Shenlong (Mandarin for "Divine Dragon") is a knightmare frame utilized by the Chinese Liberation Army in Code Geass Megiddo. It is noteworthy as the personal knightmare of Captain Yu Yin, one of the three Tianshou (Mandarin for "Heavenly Beasts"), the loyal followers of General Li Xingke.


The Shenlong generally looks akin to the Shenhu, but overall more draconian as well as holding its own unique mask design and four head feather antennae. Primary colors are CLA standard green and red.


Developed (under forced coercion) by Rakshata Chawla herself as part of the Four Beasts line, the Shenlong was meant to be a next generation knightmare frame that would see the highly antiquated Chinese Liberation Army brought to the modern age. Possessing both advanced technology as well as the standard superior engineering of the Chawla Design Bureau, the Shenlong was very much a product of the seventh generation; in fact, the Chinese had specifically requested that the Shenlong and its three siblings be able to fight the Britannian Lancelot on equal footing. And though highly reluctant to serve the oppressive communists, Rakshata would nonetheless grant the Chinese a weapon like no other; one that would serve them well some years later.

Amongst its lineup, the Shenlong was designed to be the Ultimate Power Unit. Having been built by the same team that developed the Guren Isshiki, and later on the Guren Nisshiki, the Shenlong incorporated many design elements of its Japanese oriented counterparts, as well as some of its own unique features. Its main feature is its applied usage of baryon tech, which was the standard trait of the entire Four Beasts line. In the Shenlong's case, it mounted a powerful Baryon Booster System in its torso. When activated, the Baryon Booster transmits baryon fueled energy throughout the frame, from the Yggdrasil drive to the inner mechanics to the exterior armor, augmenting the Shenlong's performance level three times over. As a bonus, it also generates an afterimage effect for the Shenlong, in which excessive baryons are shed from the armor, taking the Shenlong's form as well as heat and electronic signatures, as it moves. This process causes confusion both with the human eye as well as with most conventional sensors, making the Shenlong difficult to track and target.

Its secondary weapons are two "Sheng Biao" slash harkens mounted on its wrist. By wrapping or impaling an enemy with the slash harkens, the Shenlong can send a powerful electrical charge along the cable, instantly destroying the knightmare on the receiving end. Alongside, the Shenlong's wrist armor can spin in place to turn the Slash Harkens into powerful flails which can double as shields. Finally, the Shenlong is armed with twin shuang gous (hook swords) as its principle melee weapon. Though lacking any special features, the shuang gous are robust weapons capable of cutting through most forms of armor. Alongside, their curved and hooked designs make them naturally effective as grappling weapons.


Though meant to be a pathfinder for future Chinese knightmares, the Shenlong, along with its three siblings, would prove too advanced and too difficult for most Chinese pilots to utilize. Thus, after several disastrous evaluation runs, some of which actually ended in pilot fatalities, the Shenlong and its brethren were placed into storage and promptly forgotten. As a result, the Chinese Liberation Army would continue to utilize the Yaoguai as its mainline knightmare, much to the detriment of Chinese devicers and commanders everywhere.

In 2018, however, the Federation would become annexed by Britannia, and the Chinese Liberation Army would end up going rogue and underground under the direction of its commanding last General, Li Xingke. Through this process, Li and his disciples, the Tianshou, would rediscover the Four Beasts and promptly put them back into action. The Shenlong would be taken by Captain Yu Yin, the "youngest" and sole female of the Tianshou. Though it would take her and her compatriots almost an entire year to learn to control their new weapons, Yin would eventually come to master the Shenlong and use it in her army's insurrection against the Britannian occupiers and their collaborators.
