concept art

  • Animal Theme: Kiwi
  • Possible Prehistoric Basis: Moa or Ratites
  • Giwi Newzie's suit is a rebuilt, remodified, and repainted version of Pitch Cock's suit.
  • His face design seems to resemble the mask worn by a plague doctor.
  • Giwi's name may have been based on Kiwi (which could refer to either the kiwi bird, the kiwifruit, or the nickname for New Zealanders) and New Zealand (The Moa's place of origen before going extinct).
  • Giwi is the third Gangler Monster with a human form to be destroyed by PatKaiser.
    • Giwi also is the first Gangler Monster who was destroyed by PatKaiser and X Emperor.
  • Ironically, he was defeated by the lucky charm HE provided.
  • Hes the only member of the Raimon Gang to have an arsenal
