Garada K7 (ガラダK7) is a Mechanical Beast that in both the manga and anime, was the first opponent for the Mazinger Z along with the Doublas M2. Both Mechanical Beasts are famous for this and have appeared in several different media.
Garada resembles a large humanoid with a skull-like face and large scythes on its head that can be launched in an offensive manner.
The Garada is armed with two large scythes on its head that can be launched in a boomerang fashion to attack enemies. In the anime, its eye sockets also contain missiles and has extending arms.
The Garada was launched by Baron Ashura and his Ashura Corps alongside Doublas M2 to attack the Photon Power Laboratory to obtain Super Alloy Z for Dr. Hell. When things looked grim with the Lab's defenses proving to be useless, the Mazinger Z appeared and after defeating Doublas M2 with his Rocket Punch he used its Rust Hurricane on Garada K7 causing it to rust away.
- The Garada K7 and Doublas M2 are the only Mechanical Beasts that have appeared in nearly all of the Mazinger Franchise series, Garada himself is largely considered the most popular of the pair.
