The 97 Chi-ha is a Monster that belongs to the class of Gal Monsters. They are young girls clad in a thin cardboard "armor" and what looks like a golden kettle on top of their face. This is actually a tank in miniature, which can even be used for combat purposes as it shoots.
They are rather weak but hardworking monsters that try to do their best with enthusiasm. They usually use the canon on their heads to perform long range attacks, somewhat similar to a Fire Arrow spell but that is, contrary to common belief, a physical attack. Their defenses are rather low and they are weak to water attacks, as they render them defenseless.
Ther are other versions of these monsters called TYPE80 and TYPE90, but they have yet to make physical appearance, though they seem to be much more powerful than the regular 97 Chi-ha, as they are both ranked with 4 stars of strength..
