The Zangetsu (Japanese for "Slashing Moon") is a knightmare frame utilized by the Black Knights in Code Geass Megiddo. It is noteworthy as the personal knightmare of Black Knight field commander General Kyoshiro Tohdoh, known as Tohdoh of Miracles for his victory at the Battle of Itsukushima.


Its original incarnation, no real changes made.


Though classified as a new design, the Zangetsu is actually General Kyoshiro Tohdoh's original Gekka, having been refined and upgraded following its near destruction in the Devastation. As a result, the Zangetsu boasts incredible performance as per Tohdoh's exact specifications, which stipulated that it be able to fight the Lancelot and his former student Suzaku Kururugi on equal terms. Alongside, it retains Tohdoh's original Seidotou rocket sword as its primary armament.


Following the Black Rebellion and the Devastation of Japan, the Black Knights would go through a reformation and restructuring period from the safety of Okinawa, the last refuge for the Japanese race. During this period, it was decided that the Black Knights' original mainline knightmare, the Burai, was now outdated and greatly outperformed by the latest Britannian seventh generation knightmares. Worse yet, word would reach the Black Knights' higher command that the Britannians intended to mass produce their venerable Lancelot as a new eighth generation knightmare frame, thus prompting the organization's chief engineer Rakshata Chawla to put the Gekka into full production, as well as upgrade the unit belonging to General Kyoshiro Tohdoh even further.

Once fully refurbished, the Zangetsu, as it was rechristened by Tohdoh himself, would be utilized by the General whenever he led the Black Knights into the field of battle, starting with the attempted liberation of Lelouch vi Britannia in Libya, and then to the assault on Pendragon in which Tohdoh would use his knightmare to fend off Princess Cornelia li Britannia and her Exeter. After that, he would use the Zangetsu once more to fight a seemingly hopeless battle over the Bering Strait, in which the Black Knights were cornered by Britannian forces at the command of Prince Schneizel el Britannia. Though at first it seemed impossible to win, the intervening of Zero allowed the Black Knights and Tohdoh to retreat and live to fight another day.
