The Sitappa (シタッパー) is a mass-produced unit used by the Gurendos on Electronic Planet B-1. They handle ground operations and have a casualty rate of around 200%. As well as fighting with rifles and occasionally swords they are used for any menial job going, being just as horribly out of their depth driving trucks and lugging stuff as they are in battle.
Fiction[edit | edit source]
Machine Robo: Battle Hackers cartoon[edit | edit source]
Sitappas made up the bulk of Gakurandar's initial assault on Crystal City and the subsequent assault on the Good Luck led by Kariagen and Sorikondar. Large numbers were engaged by the Algo Army. Gakurandar led a force of them to seize the main bridge to Crystal City, but they took heavy losses and were driven off by the Battle Hackers. One of the troops left guarding the Good Luck suffered the indignity of being captured by Mia White and Patricia Longfellow, though he probably had a better day than the squad who were wiped out by R. JeTan, Gattai Saurer and the other Battle Hackers. They also lost huge numbers trying to keep the Battle Hackers from getting to the planet's crystallium core , from rescuing miners captured by Kariagen , pinning down Twincam Jimmy and Rotary Kid to draw out R. JeTan , defending a new super cannon from the Winner Robo , defending a mind-control satellite , Yasand's heist to take control of the Algo Army's electromagnetic missiles and the Battle Hackers' subsequent attempts to retake them , battling in a mine under the planet's surface , in a pitched battle in the desert , in the Battle Hackers' assault on Shibumidas' new mobile base and the defence of the Blood Country base.

Despite this the Machine Robo were presumably sympathetic to the Sitappas, who were after all manipulated by Dylan and possibly RIM as well, as when R. JeTan and the other Battle Hackers thanked Rom Stol for his help on B-1 before heading off to parts unknown several Sitappas were along side them.
Notes[edit | edit source]
Sittapa is derived from the term shitappa (下っ端) "minion".
