Saturn War Machine Number 02 D1 Doppelganger or simply Doppelganger is a spy of the Neo Maverick Army with the most precise copycat system in existence, thanks to his Soulstream Exchanger.
Unlike the other creations of Saturn, Doppelganger hasn't a human-ish face nor a visor, which is Saturn's common signature on his War Machines. Instead, Doppelganger lacks of a face in its normal form and has a triangular crystal in the middle of the face, with an analysis function. Through the parts not covered by its silver parts, it's possible to see some of the red energy lines related to the Soulstream Exchanger.
Created from a modified blueprint of a New Generation Reploid, Doppelganger still retains their main capabilities - manipulate the mass of its own body to and reorganize into a new form based on the DNA program stored in its Copy Chip. However, it's possible that the Copy Chip's database of DNA of D1 has been cleared.
The Soulstream Exchanger Saturn version or SoulEx is a device inside D1's arms that allows it exchange internal energy with other Reploids through contact, by this mean the device progressively grants the access of internal specifications of his target, including the DNA data, and finally their mind. After absorbing enough information, Doppelganger can emulate some of the emotions, feelings and thoughts of people that had contact with the Soul Ex. Despite of that, Doppelganger's true consciousness is supposedly unable to absorb anything from a person it has copied, since it's personality was pre-programmed to be a hollow shell with the purpose of only following the orders of its master, but tries to manipulate people around based in the copied personalities.
- The name Doppelganger comes from the German folklore term doppelgänger, that means double-goer. It is an exact duplicate of a living person that wanders around and can behave like the original, but normally with the purpose of being a demonic "evil twin" that tries to mess its counterpart.
