** The CombiningMecha is made of MechanicalLifeforms. The fusion of their bodies forms an awe-inspiring titan, but the fusion of their ''minds'' forms a deeply troubled individual with the mother of all identity crises who just so happens to be very, very large. And if they separate... Will they be the same as they were before they combined? And what happens to the combined form's identity when its components separate? Is it sleeping, comatose, or dead?

* '''Implied''': Troperion Omega is seen to possess shiftable armor plating around the connective joints.



** Due to the combining mecha needing to be able to split apart, the villains don't even bother trying to fight Troperion Omega, instead developing technology to outfit their units to force the components apart.



** Because Troperion Omega needs to be able to split apart, the interlocking system is designed to constantly change the resonance to prevent it from being easily negated, in addition to having additional plating and interlocking mechanisms to make it even more difficult to negate.

* '''Deconstructed''':
** Aldous begins to lose his independence because he has to trust his copilots so much, resulting in self-esteem problems and attempted suicide.
** The combined mecha is AwesomeButImpractical due to requiring too much setup time and losing versatility.
** The combined form either requires all three pilots to work in unison, which is awkward at best, or reduces two of the pilots to passengers while the third controls the whole thing, something apt to create resentment.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** Bernard and Charlie convince Aldous that his mecha is an essential part of the whole and he returns with a vengeance.
** The advantages of the combined form outweigh the disadvantages, particularly when the individual mechs have bought time to combine.
** The combinedd form allows there minds to "meld" together for a short time, making them even better in combat.

* '''Played For Drama''': The combined form is very unusual and difficult to control, and arguments break out between the team on how to use it.
