-->''[[CatchPhrase "I don't mind betting on tough odds!"]]''

Making his debut in the lowly ''Compact 2'' trilogy, Kyosuke Nanbu [[BreakoutCharacter proved popular enough]] his game gets updated into ''Impact'' and becomes another protagonist for the first ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'', though his route becomes [[CanonDisContinuity non-canon]] (the second half of it, anyways). Kyosuke's [[TheStoic grumpy]] with a bad life-or-death gambling habit and takes war seriously. His partner's the extremely cheery [[MsFanservice Excellen]] [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Browning]], which somehow makes up a good foil for his stoicism, for good reason: without her, he may as well become ''too'' grumpy like his EvilTwin [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Beowulf]] in the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Shadow-Mirror universe]]. He also has an [[BornLucky unnatural luck]]: in the past, he was one of two shuttle crash survivors, coming out with just minor scratches and bruises. While usually calm, he has a BerserkButton: go ahead and endanger his woman, and he becomes a {{Determinator}} with a dangerous TranquilFury.

In ''Original Generation'', Kyosuke's the new recruit to the ATX Team, selected by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Sanger Zonvolt]], but after Sanger's FaceHeelTurn, he's promoted to team leader and proves himself to be [[TookALevelInBadass equally as badass as Sanger in the role]]. He pretty much becomes the de facto leader after the ATX Team and SRX Team merge into one, eventually bringing Sanger back to the fold... unofficially. His biggest contribution in ''Original Generation 2'' is during the war against the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Inspectors]] and the Shadow-Mirror, wherein he becomes TheRival to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Axel Almer]]. At the same time, he's also targeted by the Einst, especially Einst Alfimi, but he and Excellen manage to persuade her to turn against her creator. The events in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' puts Kyosuke into HeroicBSOD for three times, due to his apparent failure to protect his friend [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lamia Loveless]]]]. Thankfully, [[spoiler:Axel]] (who by this time gets a HeelFaceTurn) manages to set him straight after a DynamicEntry rescue.

Sometime after ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Kyosuke disappears in a dimensional rift during a live-fire training exercise with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Ryusei Date]], [[VideoGame/AnotherCenturysEpisode ending up in the world of Eria]]. After their misadventure in another world, he disappears to who knows where, but it turns out he's transported into the subterranean world of [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden La Gias]], meeting up with [[Characters/MasouKishin old comrade Lune Zoldark and new comrade Hwang Yang Long]], alongside multiple members of the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Steel Dragon Battle Group]] in the ''Second Original Generation''. With [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsEX the events in La Gias solved]], Kyosuke and his allies return to the surface world, only now their newest enemies are the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Gaia Sabers, Garden of Baral]], [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Ruina]] [[spoiler:and the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Guests]]]]. This time around, he takes a more sidelined role.

Kyosuke pilots the very bulky {{real robot|Genre}} [[http://images.wikia.com/superrobotwars/images/7/7c/Alteisen.png Alt Eisen]] and its MidSeasonUpgrade [[http://images.wikia.com/superrobotwars/images/3/37/Alteisen_Riese.jpg the Alt Eisen Riese]], all that adheres to the RuleOfCool (so heavy it needs a Tesla Drive to stand up, and he's the only one who can use the Alt).

They embody these tropes:



* AcePilot: With the heavy-hitting Alt, Kyosuke most definitely is a "Steamroller" and serves as the Steel Dragon's go-to-guy for heading shock assaults.
* AceCustom: Played with. The Alt Eisen's a FlawedPrototype; the first in a proposed Gespenst MK III line of next-generation [=PTs=] but it's bulk, speed, and unorthodox weapons rendered it too clumsy and impractical to be put into mass-production. The only model produced had been gathering dust in a hanger, and seemed to be destined for the scrap heap, until Kyosuke's piloting abilities were noticed. Even then, he was only supposed to take it out for a few test runs, but the DC war broke out soon afterwords and, without any other options, he used the machine through the entire campaign, making the mecha his.
** The Alt Eisen Riese is even more impractical: it's so heavy and unbalanced that it needs a Tesla Drive, a part normally used to make mecha and ships fly, to even ''stand up''. That being said, it's specifically tailored for Kyosuke to use (he even had a hand in developing it), ultimately playing this trope straight.

* AppropriatedAppellation: The Alt was supposed to be designated the ''Gespenst MK III'', but never received it due to aforementioned reasons. Its engineers took to calling it ''Alten Eisen'' ([[GratuitousGerman roughly]] "Old Iron" or "Pig Iron"; a low quality ore that's used for scrap metal) in reference to the German phrase "Zum alten eisen gehören" - "to be on the shelf/scrap heap". It was later shortened to ''Alt Eisen'' and the name stuck, despite its designer's protests.
** BTW, "Riese" is German for "Giant". Alt Eisen Riese ~ Old Iron ''Giant''.
* AwesomeButImpractical: Trump Card involves the Alt unloading its ''[[MoreDakka entire]]'' arsenal, making for one extremely powerful attack. Unfortunately, it's a one-round attack, but like other units with similar one-round weaponry, proper use of parts and allied Spirit Commands can remedy this. Savvy players tend to rely more on [[CombinationAttack Rampage Ghost]] for the real heavy-hitting anyways.
** Note the Riese's Claymore Overlord lets you use it twice in a scenario (excluding resupply via a teammate or battleship).
** In-universe, the Alt Eisen and ''especially'' the Alt Eisen Riese are considered this: see AceCustom.
* '''{{Badass}}''': Oh, so '''VERY''' much.
** BadassNormal: While most of his TrueCompanions are pilots with powerful PsychicPowers or not even human at all, he manages to win solely by skill and loads of battle experience behind the cockpit (being the only person who can pilot the [[AwesomeButImpractical Alt Eisen/Alt Eisen Riese]]). The only thing that's abnormal about him is his insane luck giving him the capability to survive injuries that should ordinarily kill anyone else.

** Note despite the latter having a color-scheme that makes him more of a Sanger {{expy}}, including his storyline of [[spoiler:being a [[ArtificialHuman W-Numbers]] human clone of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lemon Browning]]]], Haken carries similar character traits to Kyosuke (stoicism, gambling habits/references), a main weapon with a PileBunker and leadership qualities. Also, the director for ''Endless Frontier'' was the one in charge of ''Impact'' and ''Namco X Capcom''.
** Resident LittleMissBadass Vita from ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' has many references to the Alt Eisen: her [[InstantArmor barrier jacket]] is predominantly red and black (with some white highlights), her [[EmpathicWeapon armed device]] is called "Graf ''Eisen''" which, while a hammer, functions as a barrier-piercing attack with a pike by spending cartridges and also has the power to attack her enemies with tons of iron balls. Also, [[TheWorfEffect she gets trounced by new characters quite frequently]].

At one point, loads of [[AnimatedArmor Einst Gemuet]] literally ''dog pile'' the Riese; Kyosuke responds by using the Alt's [[ShouldersOfDoom Claymore launchers]] to blow half of the mess away [[note]]as in, a point-blank barrage that ''rips them to shreds''[[/note]], then makes quick work of the rest.

Why not [[CloningBlues create a clone out of her]], name it Alfimi, but instead of being a ManicPixieDreamGirl HardDrinkingPartyGirl, she's an EmotionlessGirl?

Anyway, years later, the meddling Einst declare humanity needs a reboot, and they need their own [[AdamAndEvePlot Adam and Eve]] to make the planet grow again. Thus Alfimi's sent out to capture Excellen and persuade the "Adam" to agree to the Einst's plans. Instead, they pull out their ''own'' persuasion for Alfimi to break out on her own; [[HeelFaceTurn ...it works]] and the bad Einsts are destroyed. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, since she's tied down to the Einsts, destroying them means destroying yourself, but at least she was thankful she made friends...]]

[[spoiler:...that is, until she suddenly ''doesn't want to die''. In short, moments before vanishing for good, she comes across Axel, near death in his damaged Soulgain. Alfimi merges her essence with him until her body regenerates, then reawakens when the new breed of Einsts, the Jetzt, starts doing a little havoc of their own. Alfimi, now alive and well with her old machine to boot, is tasked with hunting down the Jetzt and putting them back down. When the deed's done, she follows Axel, politely refusing to rejoin her old friends, only to wind up getting kidnapped, landing in the Endless Frontier...]]

[[spoiler:As with Axel, Alfimi returns in the ''Second Original Generation'', but moments after she returns to the surface world, she ends up separated with Axel and forcefully absorbed by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Duvan Org and his monstrous Alles Geist]] to empower the machine.
