"Destroy Power Core"
Porcupine was one of the Ravens contracted by Global Cortex to destroy the power core of an old facility supposedly related to the Silent Line. The strike team included him, Calamity, Carom, Ice, Surface, and XA-26483. Once they reached the facility, the Ravens quickly split up, with Porcupine being the first of the Ravens to clear out one of the sectors, Sector A01. He cleared Sector A18 next and deemed it impassible. Afterwards, Porcupine traveled to Sector B04, where he was surrounded by enemy units and killed. He was the second Raven to fall. His death was confirmed by Emma Sears. Despite this loss, XA-26483 was eventually able to destroy the power core, thus preventing Porcupine's death from being in vain.
- Sector A01 clear. There's nothing here.
- Sector A18 clear. It's impassible!
- They've got me surrounded in sector B04...uaahhh!
AC Barbed WireEdit
Barbed Wire is a lightweight two-legged AC equipped with an OB core, laser blade arms, and dual chainguns. It is capable of using its chainguns without kneeling, an indication that Porcupine is a a Human PLUS subject or a user of OP-INTENSIFY.

He is one of the many Ravens participating in the mission "Destroy Power Core". Much like the other allied NPCs, Porcupine's involvement in the mission is purely off-screen. After clearing out three sectors, he moves into Sector B04, where he is ambushed by enemy units and killed.
In the Arena, Porcupine is ranked C-5 and can be challenged once the player reaches a Raven rank of C. He is partnered with Eclair in the Extra Arena and they hold the title of the eighth highest ranked team.
- This lightweight AC design suits the pilot to a tee, providing him with the speed he needs in order to execute close-in attacks with his favorite weapon, the blade. When unable to close on an opponent, the dual chain guns are brought to bear.
Porcupine refers to rodents with a coat of sharp spines, or quills, that defend them from predators. Porcupines are indigenous to the Americas, Southern Asia, Europe, and Africa.
A barbed wire is a type of steel fencing wire constructed with sharp edges or points arranged at intervals along the strand. After its invention, barbed wires were widely used during wars to protect people and property from unwanted intrusion. Nowadays, the barb wire is more commonly used for agricultural and military purposes.
- Porcupine's Extra Arena partner, Eclair, shares the same combat specialty as him; both specialize in close-range blade combat and not only use lightweight, high-speed ACs, but also equip weapon arms.
