History

SSSS.GRIDMAN

Borr showed up with the remaining two Junior High students after Anti had defeated Gridman and Calibur. The trio invited themselves into the Junk shop, already aware Gridman was alive. Borr used Rikka's phone to tell Calibur to come out of Junk. Defeat He and the other Assist Weapons continue to fight alongside Gridman and Yuta. Borr entered the battle for the first time when Gridman had to face off against Go'yavec, and combined with him to form Buster Gridman.Provocation

Trivia

  • His counterpart in Denkou Choujin Gridman is Twin Driller, the second of the God Zenon set of Assist Weapons created and controlled by Ippei Baba and Yuka Inoue to assist Gridman.
    • His name is based off of Borr, the English name for the Twin Driller in Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad.
    • The names of the missiles he fires are a reference to Syndey Forrester, the default pilot of Borr in Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad.
  • Originally presumed to be female, Borr's voice actress confirms on Twitter that the disguised Assist Weapon is in fact male.[3] Even Aoi Yuki acknowledges this surprising twist and calls him "Borr-chan-kun" (ボラーちゃんくん Borā-chan-kun).
    • There was some further confusion regarding Borr's gender because his Funimation voice actor initially referred to him as a girl[4]. This has since been rectified.[5]
  • The brooch on his vest is a reference to the Dinobot, Scorn, from Transformers Age of Extinction.
  • When combined with Gridman, Borr's components took a similar appearance to Drill Max from Brave Fighter Exkizer.
  • Borr is very proud of his tank form's twin drills despite the fact, as Vit stated, they are mostly just for show.
    • Borr's drills are similar in appearance to the drill arms of the Godzilla Kaiju/Robot Heisei Moguera from Godzilla VS Spacegodzilla.
  • A recurring gag with Borr is that he kicks the shins of whoever annoys him. Sho is frequently on the receiving end of this.
