Destrakon Gear has a triple strike attack. The sharp pincers cut up an opponent's swords and then the arms wrap around them to nullify their abilities. The arms can split apart and attack from three different angles confusing the enemy. The body core is capable of ramming an opponent.
It is used yet again with Rubanoid in episode 8, but still did not win, even though the command card Ruby Storm enabled a Level 2 Battle Gear Ability.
It appeared in episode 12 to help Rubanoid battle Drago, but still ended up losing in the end due to the fact of Drago evolving.

- Destrakon Gear can also stand for 'destruction gear'.
- Its Japanese name is 'Gidora Gear', referring to King Ghidorah, Godzilla's greatest arch-enemy.
- The anime depicts the gear as being translucent to match Rubanoid, but it was never released in translucent in the physical game.
- Although Linus Claude had Destrakon Gear, it was never seen being used on-screen.
