Battle Angel Alita Wiki

Valor, known in Japan as Winner (ウィナー Winā?), was one of Murdock’s four cyborg dogs. Like the other three, Fury, Glory, and Hubris, he was named after a martial characteristic. The four served as Murdock’s means of tracking and bringing down the bounties he targeted, and Murdock could communicate with them without speaking via a cyborg implant in his chin.


Valor was modeled along the lines of a greyhound, having a medium coloured body. An illustration by Yukito Kishiro for the 2003 Ultra Jump calendar shows him as being gray.[1]

BAA05 134 Death of Valor

The death of Valor in Battle 26.

Murdock was tracking Zapan with his dogs when he came across two of his murder victims, Tank Man and an unnamed hunter-warrior. After Zapan was cornered by Murdock in the sewers, Alita gave him a chance to attack her. When he could not and collapsed in terror, the dogs tore him to pieces.

Zapan came close to killing Master when he visited Bar New Kansas after he gained control of the Berserker Body, but was stopped by Murdock. After assigning Fury to protect Koyomi and Shumira, Murdock attacked Zapan with the Glory, Hubris, and Valor. Zapan countered by forming the Demon Dog out of plasma, which tore Valor's body in half and killed the other two dogs.

Last Order[]

Valor was one of the many characters from Alita's past shown when Melchizedek, appearing as an afterimage of Arthur Farrell, reached out to her consciousness after her ego was shattered and her Imaginos Body dissolved following Super Nova's Seca attack.[2]


He is the only one of Murdock's dogs who does not appear in Gunnm: Martian Memory.
