In the manga and anime[edit | edit source]

This section of the article may contains details concerning the progression of the plot. If you do not want it to be spoiled for you, skip this section!

The Brocken Gigant is a battle race machine created by Dr. Ogami and was belongs to Gen Kondou.

Due to its long wheelbase and front motor layout, the car has better corner-out characteristic and straight line stability. The car was very heavy, which Gen was taking advantage of and use to attack and destroy other cars. In the anime, It is also capable of doing power drifts as it was equipped with the high-performance motor. In the manga, it was instead equipped with the high-torque motor.

The car is capable of doing wheelies, which was used to performs the 'Brocken Crush' ('Hammer G Crush' in the manga) where the Brocken Gigant crush the opponent's Mini 4WD car by pressing onto them after the wheelie. In the anime, it can also initiate the 'Brocken Fang' attack where the front cowl open up, doubiling as the car's 'jaw' and use it crush a Mini 4WD car.

In the anime, Gen had once removed all the battle race parts from the Brocken Gigant during the Super Great Japan Cup's 2nd section, resulting in the massive boost in acceleration and speed due to its reduced weight.

In WGP, Gen, who already stayed away from battle racing, had became a coach of the Horizonte Mini 4WD racing team. During that time, he has the Brocken Gigant painted in black (referring to the Black Special variant), according to a videotape he sent to Kai.

In chapter 3 of Return Racers!, Gen's Brocken Gigant was ultimately destroyed by the Death Angels' Mini 4WD cars along with Rei's Ray Stinger and Kai's Beak Spider and was modified into the Beak Stinger G by Crusher Jiro himself. After the race with the Seiba brothers, Jiro reverted the cars and gave them back to the Ogami trio. In chapter 15 of the middle-school arc, Gen's Brocken Gigant had upgraded into the Black Metallic variant.
