Durandal (デュランダル Dyurandaru) is an extremely powerful Storage Device optimized for freezing opponents. He was given to Chrono Harlaown (whom he refers to as "Boss") by Aria Liese on Gil Graham's orders for the final battle in A's.

In The MOVIE 2nd A's, the Durandal's origin has been rewritten to imply that it once belonged to the late Clyde Harlaown, Chrono's father.

EtymologyEdit

The name is a reference to the holy sword Durendal from The Song of Roland.

AppearancesEdit

Durandal appears only in A's (and its adaptation The MOVIE 2nd A's) and the portable continuity (Battle of Aces and Gears of Destiny).

With the full name of "Staff of Freeze - Durandal" (氷結の杖デュランダル), he was developed, using the then-latest technology, by Gil Graham and the Lieses, in order to seal the Book of Darkness. Although he does not really have an individual will like the Intelligent Devices, he has a vocal answering system and a minimum level of self-judgment function.

His existence is first mentioned in episode 7, but his first appearance in his compact form is in episode 10. Durandal also briefly appears in chapter 7 of A's manga.

In The MOVIE 2nd A's, Durandal first appears in his standby form when Lindy Harlaown is reminiscing about her late husband. She uses the Device briefly in her short encounter with Wolkenritter, but doesn't use any special abilities other than a possible shield. He returns in the final battle with Chrono as he uses Eternal Coffin to freeze the Defense Program.

FormsEdit
