Yasand (ヤーサンド) is a captain of the Gurendos army on Electronic Planet B-1.

He is an excellent swordsman and one of the few intelligent Gurendos captains, though at times this makes him a threat to Gakurandar. Yasand goes on about honour a lot for someone who doesn't seem to have any.

Fiction[edit | edit source]

Machine Robo: Battle Hackers cartoon[edit | edit source]

Voice actor: Yuji Mikimoto

Yasand's first involvement in the war against the Algo Republic came when he began an operation in a run-down area of Crystal City, using mind-control chips to take over many of the residents. His scheme was discovered by Masa, who despite being injured was able to get word to Drill Crusher of the Battle Hackers before dying. Drill Crusher and Akira Amachi in the Jet Riser trashed Yasand's operation, blew up his car and forced him to retreat. Drill Crusher's Wrath He later fought against the Battle Hackers in a more conventional fashion, but he and Rikimines were trounced by Akira and Luke in Riser Suits. Riser! Power Up! However Yasand then got Dylan's approval with a much more ambitious plan, much to Gakurandar's discomfort. He led a mission to steal electromagnetic missiles from the Algo Army; while the Battle Hackers attempted to stop him, Yasand was able to escape with several of the projectiles. The Stolen Secret Weapon Despite the Battle Hackers' attempts to stop him from launching the missiles and the occasional logistical hiccup Yasand was able to fire one of the missiles at Crystal City, causing huge casualties. Target: Grand Whale Further launches had a similar effect, with Yasand receiving compliments from Dylan and RIM being forced to evacuate the Grand Whale. However, the Battle Hackers were eventually able to fight through and encircle his command post, forcing Yasand into a retreat. The Flower of Hope Blooming on the Battlefield He was then unsuccessful in preventing the team getting a device to revive the casualties back to the Grand Whale, and as a result the restored Algo Army routed his troops. Let's Do It! Yasand then attempted to stop Blue Jet and Eagle Robo from resupplying the Battle Hackers during a pitched desert battle with Kariagen. However, Blue Jet bested him in combat and was able to help destroy Kariagen's entire force. Hot Sand Battle, Hurry Jet! When the Battle Hackers attacked a new mobile Gurendos base commanded by Shibumidas and Rikimines. Yasand brought reinforcements in but when he realised the battle was lost he evacuated, taking the captive Mach Blaster with him. Captive Mach Blaster He later commanded the defence of Blood Country after the death of Gakurandar when the Battle Hackers attacked it; however, he was obliterated by the Grand Whale's weaponry while bemoaning the pointlessness of the war.
