Broken Magnum - GaoGaiGar's ("Broken") upper right arm spins clockwise at high speed while its fist spins counterclockwise, which it then aims and launches at the target, causing heavy piercing/penetrating damage. Generally, the upper arm automatically returns to its socket. There are at least two variations on this, both used against Pasder. In the first, the arm is launched first then begins to spin, and in the second, the arms spins against something before being launched. The second was effective against Pasder's Zonder Barrier. Broken Magnum has also been used on Zonuda in a variant where the fist does not detach at all, instead simply spinning rapidly during a punch. Broken Magnum is derived from a nameless Green Planet technique using the right hand that fires a quick-firing laser.
Genesic GaoGaiGar's was the original version of GaoGaiGar's Broken Magnum. Though only the "fist" fires at the enemy, quite unlike other GaoGaiGar-type Mechanoids (detaching at the wrist, not at the elbow), it is vastly more powerful and longer in range. The execution of this version of Broken Magnum is something of a homage to the signature "Shining Finger" technique from G Gundam, another Sunrise production in many ways similar to GaoGaiGar.
