Cross Mirage (クロスミラージュ Kurosu Mirāju) is an Intelligent Device created for Teana Lanster by Shario Finieno (Riot Force 6) in StrikerS.

Name[edit | edit source]

In StrikerS opening theme one, Cross Mirage is coded XC-03.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Teana wielding Cross Mirage in Blazer Mode

Cross Mirage is featured prominently in StrikerS, StrikerS manga and Sound Stage X. He also appears briefly alongside Teana in ViVid and Force. A toy water pistol version of Cross Mirage also appears in ViVid as bathroom toy.

Cross Mirage becomes Teana's primary Device after her original Anchor Gun suffers from various problems. In particular, he is able to augment her mana-consuming illusion spells.

Cross Mirage's Mode 3, i.e. Blazer Mode, makes its first proper appearance in StrikerS Sound Stage X, though its existence is known to Teana as early as in StrikerS. She has chosen not to use it then, however, believing that she does not have enough time to practice using it, as other trainings take priority for her.[1]

Forms[edit | edit source]

Standby Mode

Cross Mirage's Standby Mode takes the form of a card.

Blazer Mode
