Mach Caliber (マッハキャリバー Mahha Kyaribā) is an Intelligent Device created for Subaru Nakajima by Shario Finieno in StrikerS. She takes form of a pair of rollerblades and is a twin Device to Ginga Nakajima's Blitz Caliber, also created by Shari.


In StrikerS opening theme one, Mach Caliber is coded XM-01, but her name is misspelled as "Mach Cariber".

By the time of Force, she is upgraded to Mach Caliber AX (マッハキャリバーAX Mahha Kyaribā Ei Ikusu).


Apart from her initial appearance in StrikerS and StrikerS manga, Mach Caliber also features in Sound Stage X, ViVid and Force.

Mach Caliber's design is based on Subaru's Self-made Rollerblades. Mach Caliber claimes she was made to make Subaru stronger and faster, but the latter disagrees because she believes that Mach Caliber, as an Intelligent Device with her own free will, has a soul and was thus born, not made.

Mach Caliber can autocast some of Subaru's spells such as "Wing Road", which was very difficult for Shari to engineer. Mach Caliber is also in sync with Revolver Knuckle, Subaru's Armed Device, allowing it to be stored in Mach Caliber when both are inactive, as well as limited interaction between the two Devices. During episode 19 of StrikerS, she is reinforced to be able to keep up with Subaru's Combat Cyborg abilities, increasing her mana consumption by factor 1.4x and her weight, by 2.5x.

By the time of Force, Mach Caliber is extensively optimized and upgraded for Subaru by Shari, who henceforth renames her to Mach Caliber AX, similar to Raising Heart Exelion and Bardiche Assault. The changes have been described as a conversion from a truck to a sports car. Despite extensive external modifications, Mach Caliber's AI has been left untouched.[1]
