"Woo-hoo! Way to go, Boss!"
—Lola , Luminous Avenger iX
Combat Pod "Lola", often shortened to just Lola, also known as Battle Pot RoRo (ロロ RoRo ) in Japan, is a multi-purpose AI developed and built by Copen and the deuteragonist of Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX. Bright and energetic in contrast to her serious, gloomy partner, she provides Copen with his EX Weapons and acts as his field support and only constant ally. She can replicate the Septima known as the Muse, which allows her to buff Copen and revive him when he dies.
A combat support robot created by Copen. She is equipped with a scanning system capable of analyzing enemies' Septimas. She can then replicate mock versions of those Septimas as "EX Weapons", which Copen can use at his disposal. She is Copen's reliable partner.
While normally taking on a spheroid shape, ever since she analysed the "Muse" Septima, she is capable of transforming into "Idol Mode" to support Copen in battle through the power of song. In this form, Lola also uploads music videos to the net to give hope to the Minos, among whom she is known as the "Muse of Hope".
Usually, Lola's form is that of a floating white and red sphere with blank yellow eyes.
With the power of the Muse, Lola gains the ability to shift into what is known as her "Idol Mode". In this form, her appearance shifts to that of a young girl with short, mint green hair, and blue eyes. She wears a red and white leotard with bits of gold, and white knee-highs with black and red shoes, as well as black gloves with red fingers. She also has two white and red disc-like objects known as "Speaker Pods" that broadcast songs hovering behind her, joined together by an large orange ring. She also sprouts red wing-like holograms, which vaguely resemble phoenix wings.
Lola also has access to another mode: Awakened. In her Awakened Mode, her costume turns white with gold and black highlights, and is slightly more revealing than her previous one, exposing her back and cleavage. She also has a white headset similar to Copen's with four golden petals acting similarly to a crown, and her Phoenix wings are now replaced with hovering robotic extensions bearing a resemblance to a lotus flower.
After obtaining the EX Weapon "Darkness Trigger", Lola gains another form: "Darkness Mode". In this form, Lola's costume becomes even more revealing, changing from a mostly latex-esque material to sharp, angular armor, shifting to a predominantly black colour scheme with heavy purple highlights. Her gloves are replaced with gauntlets with spiked fingers, she gains thigh-high, armoured leggings, her hips are accentuated by two spiked pieces of metal, and she has two horn-like appendages attached to her head. In addition to this, her wings have now been replaced by two large metal attachments around the back of her legs that sprout purple flames. Her eyes also turn purple and her skin becomes paler.
Lola's personality isn't overly different from the main series. She still acts as the expressive half to Copen's stoicism, and sees herself as a sort of guardian for him. If anything, she's a bit more peppy now, given her propensity to shout encouragement and overall being Copen's hype-bot in the field.
Not to say Lola doesn't have her negativity as well, especially when she's confronted with the truth to the Butterfly Effect, or invokes Darkness Trigger, which drives her berserk to the point of harming Copen if there isn't something else to target.
Luminous Avenger iX
Even before the start of the game, Lola has made a name for herself as the "Muse of Hope" who guides "iX". The music videos she uploads to the Undernet act as inspiration and encouragement for Minos, and she even holds a fanbase among Adepts. Compared to the main series, Lola's Anthem seems to have come from an unspecified incident where she and Copen were studying the Muse Septima.
Aside from several conversations in the hideout, most of Lola's plot relevance comes from being Copen's field support and his main method of gathering and analyzing data to locate the Butterfly Effect.
Giga Lola Attacks
Once Lola pins down the location of the Butterfly Effect and the supervisory AI Demerzel, Sumeragi deploys Giga Lola tanks across the world to purge the last of the Minos. Lola herself is incensed at the mockery of her visage on each tank, even so far as tackling one head-on when it tries to kill Copen.
Cry of the Butterfly
Breaking into the underground facility beneath Building 13, Copen and Lola find the Butterfly Effect; it's Mytyl's brain, still alive and hooked up to a machine so it can use the Muse Septima to control Adepts. Lola's Septima-analysis systems can perceive Mytyl's cries, made tangible by the wall panels forming the message "P L E A S E K I L L M E".
Upon reaching the depths of the facility, Copen and Lola come face-to-face with Demerzel and defeat it twice over. But the AI manages to strike Copen with a bolt of lightning, downing him. Lola tries to invoke the Anthem, but it fails to revive Copen. She too is struck by lightning and tumbles to the ground, barely functional. As Demerzel goes into stasis, Lola calls out begging for someone to help Copen.
Powers and Abilities
It seems to activate more or less depending on how Copen is feeling. Like it's tied to his psyche or something.
—Lola, Explaining to Kohaku how Anthem works
Lola's basic abilities are more or less the same as they were in the main series, being able to manipulate Copen's P-Bits, manage his EX Weapon system, and activate Anthem, though the last one is upgraded to give Copen infinite Bullits now. She also actively coordinates with Copen when unleashing the Twin Shredder EX Skill.
Since Nori is not present in LAiX, Lola is Copen's sole support out in the field, pointing out particular features and stage hazards, as well as analyzing whether or not an EX Weapon is effective against a particular boss. When she's not acting as Copen's hype bot, anyways.
LAiX's Anthem is different in that it's linked to Copen's emotional and mental state, rather than basing it on closeness to a particular individual. Observing and participating in social interactions improves his mental health and increases the likelihood of Anthem triggering.
Although the Anthem in LAiX seems like an improvement to the main series', it's not perfect. As Lola merely scanned and copied the power from an unspecified incident rather than experiencing and assimilating it directly, it can fail to work at times, such as when Copen takes a point-blank blast from Demerzel.
