Storm Raider (ストームレイダー Sutōmu Reidā) is Vice Granscenic's Intelligent Device in the shape of a sniper rifle, outfitted with a cartridge system in her magazine. Her programming language is English.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Storm Raider makes her first and main appearance in StrikerS and also appears alongside Vice in Sound Stage X.

After the incident that caused Vice to abandon his marksman career before the events of StrikerS, Storm Raider's AI was loaded onto a JF704 transport helicopter he piloted. Therefore, her true form does not make an appearance until late in the series, when the helicopter is destroyed during the Long Arch raid by Otto, Deed, and Lutecia. After that, she reverted to her standby form and is first seen next to Vice's hospital bed.

She later joins the final battle to help fighting Otto and the Gadget Drones, and to clear the road for Subaru and Teana towards the Saint's Cradle.
