Introduction

One of the best parts about Code Geass is the mechs also known as Knightmare Frames. They start out as cookie cutters and gradually change into unique models that have their own abilities.

Everyone has a list of their favorite Knightmares so I am going to share mine in this article. With that in mind let’s dive into my favorite Knightmare Frames from the entire Code Geass Universe.

Disclaimer there will be spoilers in this article.

I also recently uploaded a video that also goes through this topic you can watch it here.

Favorite Knightmare #10 Sutherland

The Sutherland is one of the first Knightmare Frames introduced they are the improved versions of the Glasgows the first mass-produced Knightmare Frames.

What I enjoy about this Knightmare is the iconic look of them.

There are so many awesome scenes in the Code Geass that I remember that involved them.

For example, you have that scene where Lelouch has them line up with their spears.

It’s on this list for the iconic look and how they have continued to involve through the series.

Favorite Knightmare #9 Zero’s Burai

While not the best version of the Burai it is the most famous outside of the Burai Kai famously used in the Battle of Narita.

I love the way they distinguish it from the other Burais by adding a light brown to the mid-section and make the head red.

The horns add a nice touch and will be a trend that many of the Knightmares will use in the future.

It has a special place in my heart for all the times that Lelouch trashes it when he gets owned by Suzaku in the Lancelot (which happens a lot)

Plus, I love how CC pilots it in R2 episode 1 when rescuing Lelouch.

Despite it getting replaced by the Shinkiro and Gawain it will never be forgotten as the first personal Knightmare Frame used by Zero.

Favorite Knightmare #8 Vercingetorix

The questionable animation style used in Code Geass Akito The Exiled does not affect my opinion on this Knightmare Frame.

This Knightmare Frame is very unique in that it can switch from two to four legs allowing to cover more grown at a faster rate. It runs and has the appearance of a centaur in Greek mythology. This configuration allows the Knightmare Frame to run up walls and other difficult terrains.

It has a really cool golden color scheme and is probably one of the fastest Knightmares on land. The weapons are also unique as it carries a giant ax with Geass. But the cool part comes later when Shen loses this main weapon and pulls out an awesome beam sword.

I love in general how some of the Knightmare Frames are based on mythology. I am curious about what it could have looked like if the creators had stuck to the animation style used in R1 and R2.

Regardless this is such a cool idea for a Knightmare and was one of the reasons why I sat through the OVA.

Favorite Knightmare #7 Vincent

The Vincent is the Knightmare piloted by Rolo the pretend brother of Lelouch.

It has an awesome color scheme combination gold and red with blue lights for the eyes.

It shares a similar resemblance to the Shinkiro with having shoulders that are long and in a V-shape.

But the best part has to be the weapons. It has two swords shaped like spears that the user can combine to form into a lance.

I love the movements the Vincent can with the lance. We see this in the R2 episode 2 and R2 episode 14.

It might not have the flashiest features when compared to other seventh-generation Knightmares but it’s cool design and weapons set it apart.

Favorite Knightmare #6 Nagid Shu Mane

This Knightmare is new and was introduced in the Code Geass: Lelouch of the Re;surrection.

What I love about is how it looks like the legendary Spartan hero Leonidas I who is known for fighting the Persian army with just 300 Spartans.

I love how the flight system is not obvious as the six-generation Knightmares and even the seventh.

Once interesting about this Knightmare is that it does not have any advanced weapons like the Hadron Cannon or uses Radiant Wave Technology

Instead, it’s very fast and uses a combination of melee and long-range attacks. This is appropriate considering it looks like a Spartan warrior so it should fight like one as well.

I was not a big fan of the pilot but the Knightmare itself is awesome and the best one introduced in the film

Favorite Knightmare #5 Shinkiro
