Devil Rock (デビルロック) is one of the Rock People from Cronos, in the service of the Gyandlar.

He is 2.1 metres tall, weights 1.05 tons and is made of space rock with a hardness of 12. Devil Rock is the cruel, hard leader of the Gyandlar Rocks, always following his own sinister agenda. He is a master of Cosmo Kempō but has many other skills, including being able to secrete a corrosive gas from his shoulders. Devil Rock is also armed with his Club Deal and a Beta Beam.

One Devil Rock from Cronos is Clay.

When Leina Stol was picking flowers in Korora she was mistaken for a Gyandlar by Bally, Guts Rock and Mecha Rock and fell into a cave. She was promptly attacked by carnivorous plants before being saved by the Devil Rock Clay, who cut off his own lower leg so she can use his foot rockets to escape to the surface. Rom Stol, Blue Jet, Rod Drill and Triple Jim came looking for her and rescued Clay, taking him to Korora for repairs. In the city they found that Bally and Clay were brothers, but the latter discharged himself and disappeared. Clay was a Gyandlar agent but when Gelvar tried to fire on Leina he blocked his shot and then told her how Rom could beat the Gyandlar Rocks, before dying from his wounds. The Man from Gyandlar

  • Devil Rock (1986)
    • ID number: MRGR-1
    • Accessories: Club Deal
Devil Rock was one of the Rock Robo in the Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos toyline, and coverts from robot to space rock in 4 steps. Devil Rock has articulation at the shoulders and elbows, plus a little at the knees and hips, though these bend the wrong way.
  • The same figure was issued as Magmar in Rock Lords by Tonka, with a modified set of paint applications. It is unclear which version of the figure was released first.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Presumably either the Gyandlar Rocks can be regenerated in a similar fashion to the Gyandlar Devils, or there are lots of them in Gadess' service but he only sends them out one at a time on most occasions.
