...again, what exactly you want to discuss?
The five-man band and how it could translate into a non-combining real robot team, as well as group dynamics in a mecha anime or tokusatsu series.

I just like looking up group dynamics in any genre and medium, and that mecha shouldn't be any exception, whether with combining mecha or non-combining mecha teams.

...They'd still use combining super robots as among their elements, and these combining super robots are still inspired not only by Leopardon from tokusatsu Spider-Man from 1978, but also Getter Robo, Combattler V, and Voltes V, in their own ways, as well. Which means that, as combining super robots...

Favorite balanced, melee, ranged, heavy, and light units

In my case, it's the following: * Balanced: The RX-78-2 Gundam, though with some bits of lightweight sniper elements. * Melee: Dann of Thursday, GUN X SWORD. * Ranged: Scopedog, Armored Trooper VOTOMS; ARX-7 Arbalest, Full Metal Panic. * Heavy: Ideon, Space Runaway Ideon. * Light: Nirvash TypeZERO.

I don't understand what the point of this question is.
I think he(?) was asking if "combining" real robots had sufficient technical information to be covered on MAHQ...

Re: The lack of combining mecha on the MAHQ website

All of the above reasons listed sum up why super robots aren't covered on MAHQ. I like watching super robot anime just fine, but technical information is hard to come by. Also, I don't care for tokusatsu shows, so that's that. And what about real robots that are combining mecha themselves, like the...

I just checked your profile, and it turns out that you're the creator of MAHQ, or at least a moderator.

And also, you're not that interested in combining mecha at all, right? If so, why, outside of just discussing what you feel like discussing?

The lack of combining mecha on the MAHQ website

A lot of mecha that I look up on MAHQ tend to be non-combining real robots, but almost no combining super robots like Voltron or the Megazord. So why isn't that website discussing famous combining mecha like Getter Robo, Combattler V and Voltes V, all the way up to Voltron and the Megazord?

Usually, whenever I see people talk about Space Runaway Ideon, they'd talk about one of two things, including: 1. The themes, narrative, and character development that served as the inspiration for Neon Genesis Evangelion. 2. Ideon's godlike power. But rarely, if ever, do I see or hear anyone talk a...

Re: Why doesn't Super Robot Wars have traditional character classes?

Probably because most of the non-original mecha in the games would be difficult to pigeonhole into a specific class due to having diverse capabilities. That level of specialization is fairly uncommon in shows where there are teams of mecha. Uncommon? Yes. Mecha titles that focus on a small unit rat...

And I don't mean, like, Super Robots and Real Robots, because they're genres of mecha anime, not mecha archetypes. I mean, like, if there is a team of non-combining real robots, e.g. the R-series units when separated or the ATX Team's Alt Eisen and Weiss Ritter, they're divided into character classe...

Same deal as the Plantation 13 FRANXX units, to the point that I wrote two Five-Man Band lists describing the FRANXX units and their pilots, which you can see here . And, I pl...
