Shapiro keats portrait

Shapiro Keats is a major antagonist in the anime Chojuu Kishin Dancouga.

Shapiro was a former commander of the Australian Military Academy, before he defected to the Muge Zorbados Imperial forces. Stubborn and intelligent Shapiro is obsessed with becoming the ruler of the Universe and has delusions of Godhood. Unlike most super robot anime villains, he is extremely competent, and has actually come within a hair's breadth of defeating the Jyusenki Tai by exploiting his tactical knowledge of Earth and the human condition. His greatest weakness is his own arrogance, which eventually estranges him from his own allies and leads to his downfall. He is shot by Sara in the series. In the SRW series, Shapiro often makes his last stand by piloting a robot.
