Mecha-Beasts are road vehicles used in SlugTerra, typically resembling an animal with four legs and powered by an internal Turbine Heart, mechas are able to carry a small number of people and manuever around most of SlugTerra.
Designed in the form of animals, mechas are designed to help people get across the various terrain SlugTerra has to offer, and in addition help them in their daily lives.
In the 99 Caverns, mechas have been around for over 300 years, most of which were once produced by the Great Western Forge but Blakk Industries an up and coming mecha producer, managed to shutdown the competition, but eventually got shutdown themselves.
With the constant threat of Dr. Blakk looming, Kord Zane a prominent engineer came up with several upgrades for the Shane Gang's mechas. With the already existing Aquatic mode, Kord would make Glider mode, and the greatest upgrade to mechas in 300 years known as Bike mode.
In "Mecha Mutiny", unfortunately due to a mecha's Turbine Heart being fueled by Slug Energy, that presents an opportunity for ghouling. But unlike Ghoul Slugs, ghouled mechas will start to behave erratically, their eyes start glowing red, they stop obeying orders and eventually they'll explode. However they effects can by reversed if the energy is healed in time.
Mecha-Beasts come in all shapes and sizes. The most commonly seen beasts resemble different earth animals:
