In the Danball Senki universe, the most important factor is the 'Armor Frames' (アーマーフレーム Aamaa Fureimu). A full armor frame set is composed of 5 parts for the head, torso, arms and legs that covers the entire core skeleton. The frame parts are organized to their corresponding set of 5 different frame catalogues below and graded in different levels.( = Normal Grade, = High Grade, = Master Grade)
- Fighter-type Knight Frames (ナイトフレーム)
- Masculine-type Brawler Frames (ブロウラーフレーム)
- Feminine-type Strider Frames (ストライダーフレーム)
- Animalistic Wild Frames (ワイルトフレーム)
- Tank-treaded Panzer Frames (パンツァーフレーム)
Each frame part has their own elemental-resistance and weight that will affect your LBX's status parameters. The resistance values judge which physical and status elements they are weak against, and the weight values judges the heaviness of each part, thereby affecting speed. Each part has its own AC (Armor Class) level that calculates the LBX's overall LP (Life Point) and DF (Defense). After winning an LBX battle, it will gather experience per thereby increasing its AC for higher status.
List of Game Features
- Armor Custom (装甲カスタム): This feature can only be unlocked by flowing through the story. You can toughen or lighten each frame part to increase defense and speed values. (**See equation below.)
- Hardening (パテモリ): Increases DF making the frame heavier (decreasing speed).
- (Weight +2 & DF +30%)
- Lightening (ニクぬき): Decreases DF making the frame lighter (increasing speed).
- (Weight -2 & DF -30%)
- Speed Rank (スピードランク): Speed of movement controls is a VERY important factor within LBX battles. Ranked through A to E with A being the highest level, it depends on the overall heaviness of each frame part, weapon and shield to determine the speed of your LBX. The higher ranked your customized LBX set is, the faster and more maneuverable your control becomes.
|A||0 ~ 17|
|B||18 ~ 24|
|C||25 ~ 30|
|D||31 ~ 35|
