Judgment (ジャッジメント, Jajjimento) is a character in Guilty Gear: Judgment. He is the final boss, as well as a powerful unlockable character. He can be unlocked by collecting all of the letters that spell his name in Stage 6-1.
As Raymond, he appeared as a slightly tall and lanky male with long blond hair, wore glasses and a simple longcoat. After transforming into Judgment, his hair shortens and spikes upward, his skin blackens and his eyes glow. While he gains impressive upper body stature, his lower body gains a polarizing female build. He adorns a dark blue coat with yellow lining highly resembling the same coat worn by the Holy Knights. He wears a pair of steel cuffs with chains covering his arms. Behind him is an array of plates with an eye on each. These can transform and fuse together for a plethora of attacks.
Judgment was originally Raymond, the lead scientist of the Eastern European kingdom of Villtania. He worked on the remote island of Isene, exploiting its inhabitants and trying to create a weapon that could surpass even the Gears, and believed his work to be the work of God, although he was conducting unholy experiments. Later, when the player's character confronted Raymond, he was devoured by Inus, the dark king of the underworld, after which Inus was eventually killed when the player defeated him. This allowed Raymond to absorb his power to become Judgment. However, since Inus wished to remain dead, Judgment was eventually consumed after he was defeated.
While Judgment is featured as the final boss of Guilty Gear: Judgment, he can also be unlocked as a playable character by collecting eight letters in the second to last stage of the game that spell out "J-U-D-G-M-E-N-T". His attacks are slow, but devastating, and cover a wide area. He is also the only character in the entire game with the ability to block attacks.
Powers & AbiltiesEdit
With the powers of the king of hell at his disposal, Judgment is potentially one of the strongest characters in the series, though due to his lack of battle experience, has not been able to fully tap into the vast reserves of magic at his disposal. In battle, he wields an array of steel plates which can either use with his mind or hands. He can also fuse these plates and transform them into a mighty sword to cleave his enemies with one swing. His magic comes in the form of large energy spheres and charging forward engulfed in a powerful aura and erecting swords of magic from the ground.
