Regarding Rollo and his Geass power:

I believe that we should categorize it as a mind stop ability. His power does not stop time within this radius, which can be shown by the water that continues to flow in the scene in episode 3.

If I was to compare it to any weapon, I'd call it an EMP for the mind.

I am guessing that Rollo is probably an orphan (just like Mao) or a clone who nobody cares. I believe he really yearns family. That's why he really protect that locket since it is probably the first time someone gave him a birthday present. That will ikely become the reason why he will help Lelouch in the end considering that Lulu (in the past one tear) is probably the first person who "cares" for him.

Yup, an "EMP for the mind" would probably be a rather accurate description. The scene where he disappears in front of Kallen and Urabe doesn't seem to add up though. I almost think that they made a mistake in that scene. Time is obviously not frozen when Rolo does his thing. We, the viewers, were also "affected" by his Geass in Turn 2 when it looked as if he teleported himself and his Vincent in order to get past his attackers and end up standing in front of Lelouch. Both Kallen and Urabe should have "teleported" as well since they were moving at high speed when it happened.

Well they wouldn't have to be teleported or anything at all, since they're inside their Knightmares. Those things would still be moving, even if their pilots are mentally not there for a few seconds.

Yeah, that was my point. Their KMFs would've kept moving during the time we were Geassed and it would've seemed as if they also teleported.

So Rollo's severely messed up in the head and has abandonment issues and an inferiority complex towards Nunnally and doesn't care at all about human life in general.

And the workings of his geass are confusing because of protrayals in episodes 27 and 28.


I don't think this is a particularly interesting discussion until we get into what those shots of Rollo at ages 6 and 10 were all about though. Without motivation, this is in many ways all mere speculation. :\

Hypothetically, if the Geass is restricted to abilities only able to manipulate the mind, then it's likely the knightmares weren't stopped at all. Because if Rollo did deflect both of Urabe's and Kallen's attack, which I doubt he did and simply charged forward, then I suspect their mobile suits wouldn't have continued with their current momentum. Since their momentum didn't stop, I would think Rollo simply charged forward given the gap made by Urabe and Kallen.

But the real question is what's the limit to Rollo's Geass? So far we know it has an "EMP" effect range, which to me looks like the size of a regular track and field course.

The sentimental value Rollo has with the locket is something I can't really put a finger on. I'll probably post my thoughts of it when I think of more later.

Good Black Ops antagonist/undercover agent with a very potent super-power.

That's really all I can say about Rollo so far, after watching 3 episodes of Season 3.

Since he seems to react when the words "Family" and "Birthday" are pronounced, I agree with you

I like that part of him.

But beside that, I dislike the fact that he doesn't mind killing people :/

Oh, i posted in Episode 3 thread, should have figured a Rollo's Geass speculation thread would be best in this one.

Neways original post is what follows - spoiler to make it easier to navigate.
Spoiler for Not a Spoiler, Just Huge Text for Speculation for Rollo's Geass:


Im actually surprised people here already considered the mind stop over time freeze. and the whole audience is geassed

Hmm good point on the fact that we should see teleportation of the Guren / Gekka rush if we were to be totaly "geassed", dont think I can come up with an explanation for that one either >_>

Newho - Speculation on limitations:

For now ill place my bets on a Usage limitation with a cooldown factor

like he can either use it for very short intervals several times (instances in EP 2, to "teleport" and confuse) + limitation on # of uses seen as he didnt just get out of the way immediately when urabe blocked his attack

or use it once with a long interval (to hold the informant in place to get the kill, short intervals wouldnt work in this case, needed the guy standing still)

Anywas, speculation is fun :3

mind EMP is definately possible but lulu said "he stopped time" which is probably how the CG staff is trying to explain it to us.

Does anyone else think rollo is gay? He acts like lulu is more than someone he's just spying on... i think he has feelings for him.

I don't think Lelouch's explanation is supposed to mean anything. I mean, to him it must have seem like time stopped with the gun missing and Rollo right behind him.
