Gadget (からくり丸, Karakurimaru) is a character in Suikoden II and Genso Suikogaiden Vol.2. He is a machine built by Juppo to assist Meg.



—  Gadget

Gadget, a clockwork doll crafted by Juppo, served as a companion to Meg on her ventures and was entrusted to her as his master. An exceptional creation, Gadget was a product of advanced trickster techniques, possessing the ability to interact with people, act independently, and even learn. When initially constructed, Juppo likened him to a newborn, requiring fundamental concepts like handshakes to be explained.

It's always "How's Gadget?" and not "How's the small child trapped inside Gadget?"...

Although incapable of feeling pain, Gadget demonstrated emotions. For instance, when Meg affectionately knocked on his head during their first encounter, Gadget did not experience pain but felt apprehension at being "struck" until the meaning of the gesture was clarified.

Among his diverse abilities were a transformation protocol that reached its true potential during the Dunan Unification War and a thermal detection capability. However, it should be noted that Gadget was not waterproof.

The intricacies of Gadget's internal mechanisms remain largely obscure, except for his utilization of a mainspring (or wind-up) power source. Bamboo was chosen for his joints due to its flexibility, and his sturdy construction allowed him to support Meg's weight, occasionally being used as her mount.

Dunan: Become Human

Originally assigned by Juppo to accompany Meg back to Lenankamp, Gadget eventually acknowledged his responsibility as not merely bringing her home, but also safeguarding her wherever she ventured. Consequently, he agreed to accompany her in her quest to locate her uncle who had headed towards Crystal Valley.

During their journey from Greenhill to Muse, Meg and Gadget were stopped at the border checkpoint. Meg would try and order Gadget to fight his way through, but Gadget refused, his ego preventing him from being used as a tool for fighting.

Stuck at the checkpoint, the two encountered the leader and decided to join the New State Army after Gadget recognized the leader's resemblance to Juppo. Operating as a special forces unit within the army, Gadget played an active role in their endeavors.

Why was I programmed to feel pain?!

Despite being crafted for Meg by Juppo, Gadget developed a distaste for Meg's tinkering, often evading her attempts to modify him. However, Meg found enjoyment in tinkering with Gadget, taking him apart and reassembling him, albeit occasionally ending up with extra screws. Meg delighted in repairing Gadget and even contemplated improvements such as waterproofing, although Gadget was not keen on this particular upgrade.

After the Dunan Unification War, Gadget continued to accompany Meg, despite her self-centered nature, while he struggled with his assigned role as her guardian. Together, they embarked on an unusual adventure alongside Millie and Nash during their journey to Crystal Valley, inadvertently triggered by Viki's teleport magic.

Years later, in a burst of inspiration, Meg reconstructed Gadget from scratch, giving rise to the more advanced entity known as Gadget Z.
