Accel World Episode 11
Anime and Manga
The Chrome Disaster is a sentient armor that was created by Chrome Falcon by combining the Destiny, one of the Seven Arcs, and the Star Caster, a high ranking sword drop, via Incarnate System. It is the main antagonist of the second arc of Accel World.
The appearance of the armor varies from user to user.
In the early days of Accel World, there was a tyrant named Chrome Disaster who terrorized the Accelerated World. When the Seven Kings of Pure Color put an end to him, as Brain Burst uninstalled, Chrome Disaster proclaimed that his legacy would return to haunt Accel World. His words proved truth, as his Enhanced Armament, the Armor of Catastrophe, remained intact despite his losing of Brain Burst and came to possess the next Burst Linker it came into contact with, creating even more carnage. The armor possessed four different Burst Linkers before finally being destroyed by Black Lotus. Unbeknownst to everyone, Yellow Radio secretly acquired the armor for later use.
In 2047, Yellow Radio gave the armor to Cherry Rook, parent of Scarlet Rain, the current Red King, who was desperate to level up because he was leaving Tokyo in the real world. This new Chrome Disaster began causing the same level of chaos, threatening to break the truce while all legions abide by. It was Yellow Radio's intention to have Chrome Disaster attack his legion. By the terms of the truce, if the offender is not dealt with by their respective legion, the victim can choose a substitute from said legion as penance. It is suspected that Yellow Radio was going after Scarlet Rain to get to Level 10. At the same time, Scarlet Rain sought out the aid of the Nega Nebulus, specifically Silver Crow, to contain the monster, as this current Chrome Disaster is capable of leaping great distances. It was defeated however a part of the armor was embedded in Silver Crow's back.
The armor manifested itself partially during Silver Crow's second match with Dusk Taker. After the match, the armor consciousness infiltrated his dreams as its efforts to corrupt him.
In Volume 5, it fully manifested itself during the Hermes Cord Race. It went on a rampage with Silver Crow's consciousness slowly being corrupted fully. Lime Bell used her Citron Call to forcefully remove the armor. However, it still remained in Silver Crow's inventory.
In Volume 7, Silver Crow learned the full history of the armor via a dream sequence while staying inside the Imperial Palace in the Unlimited Field. It was created by Chrome Falcon in his despair when his lover, Saffron Blossom died in the Unlimited Field that was orchestrated by the Acceleration Research Society.
In Volume 8, Silver Crow managed to equip the original Destiny during his fight with Cyan Pile who was infected by the ISS Kit. However, the Beast stopped the process midway. As a result, the Destiny only covered his entire right arm.

Armor Consciousness Edit
The armor consciousness called the Beast by Silver Crow is the amalgam of the personalities and experiences of all the users of the armor. The base conscience is Chrome Falcon. It is aggressive and blood thirsty in nature. It continually corrupts any user it possesses. Its means of communication to its users is telepathy.
It disappeared when the armor was finally purified back to its original components by Ardor Maiden. However, Silver Crow notes it might be back.
