Appearances

Final Fantasy VI

Raiden is summoned into battle.

Raiden is an Esper that is obtained by bringing the Odin Magicite to the statue of the Queen in the basement of the Ancient Castle. The Queen will drop a tear, and it will hit Odin, who will transform into Raiden. Once Raiden is gained, Odin ceases to exist. Raiden's summon, Shin-Zantetsuken (True Edge in the original version), deals instant death to all opponents. Its Hit Rate is 140, but it will fail on targets immune to instant death. However, it works against the undead and will stall an enemy's final attack one turn. It costs 80 MP to summon, and teaches Quick at a rate of X1.

Raiden's Level Up bonus increases Vigor by 2.

They're actually both looking for characterization.
Let's see what you can see...

This article is in need of images.

Specifics: Toy
Raiden is an Autobot from the Headmasters portion of the Generation One continuity family.
God of thunder! And rock and roll!

Raiden (ライデン) is the combined form of the six Trainbots Kaen, Getsuei, Seizan, Shōki, Suiken, and Yukikaze.

Each member transforms into a different high speed or bullet train native to their home land of Japan. Raiden is an ambitious gestalt. He maintains an active rivalry with Devastator and plans on challenging the Decepticon giant Predaking next.

He is The Robot Train.

English-Malay dub name: The Robot Train, Grimlock

Fiction

The Headmasters cartoon

Voice Actor: Keiichi Noda (Japanese)

When confronted by Decepticon combiner teams, Raiden was always ready to fight back using his terrific strength and Train Bazooka. He was the only new combiner team introduced during the series.

The Trainbots' combined train mode was used for travel between planets with the aid of the Space Bridge.

Toys

The Headmasters

  • Raiden (Trainbot, 1987)
Japanese ID number: C-131
Released only in Japan, Raiden's toy dates back to the Diaclone line, similar to the Constructicons. For Headmasters, the Trainbots were available individually or in a gift set. They were later re-released during the Zone series. Like Devastator, each Trainbot member becomes a specific part of Raiden; appendages cannot be swapped like the later "Scramble City" combiners.
  • Raiden (TF Jr., 1987)

Trivia

"Go and fight! Something something Doot doot dooooo!"
  • The Trainbots combined train form appears in the opening credits of the Masterforce cartoon, but not in the series itself. The series creators seem to have intended to to use the Robot Train to travel back and forth to Athenia, more closely tying Masterforce to previous Transformers series, but the idea was quietly dropped. They did, however, appear for that purpose in the manga.
  • The rivalry with Devastator could be due to the fact that, in addition to sharing Diaclone origins, the components also have a specific part mode, and in addition to that, the two respective combiners are the fusion of six robots.
  • Though it is a little tricky to tell the true meaning of Raiden's name since it is "spelled" in phonetic katakana rather than kanji, it most likely should translate as Thunder and Lightning.
