Machine Robo

Casmodon was initially a Gandora Devil Commander, and later a Devil Invader. He specilizes in swamp and ocean combat. He turns into an alien aircraft. Because of his mechanoid nature he does not need to breath oxygen and is resistant to cold, but is vulnerable to intense magnetic fields.
