Shinonome (Genome in localized versions of Custom Robo Arena) is the leader of the Dread Army and acts as the major antagonist of Custom Robo (Nintendo 64). He returns in Custom Robo V2's post game, reassuming his role as the leader of the revived Dread Army. In Custom Robo Arena, a Greybaum Gatekeeper system in his name appears in order to stop the Hero from progressing deeper within Greybaum's base.

In all of his appearances, Shinonome has used Zola, a Wild Soldier, as his robo of choice.

Custom Robo (N64)

In the first game, Shinonome isn't seen until Day 12 of the story mode. He is briefly seen talking to Homra in the Underground. The next day, he kidnaps Yurie, prompting the Hero and his gang of friends to infiltrate the Dread Army's base. It is revealed that he desires nanomachines as they can be used to improve the performance of a commander. Having an army of enhanced commanders would allow him to easily take control of the world. This prompted him to have Yurie kidnapped in order to extract the nanomachines (which were being used to cure Yurie of a disease) from her body. The Hero eventually finds him within the deepest part of the base and challenges Shinonome to a battle for Yurie. He loses twice and collapses due to the strain of the illegal parts he used in both of the fights. The entirety of the Dread Army gets captured by the police and is sent to jail.

Custom Robo V2

The Dread Army doesn't make an appearance in this game until the post game (as the Goliath Organization is the antagonist in this game). It is revealed during the Grand Battles that the Dread Army escaped prison and is plotting to rule the world once more. The Hero of this game later storms in the Dread Army's base and eventually meets Shinonome. Shinonome is defeated and the Dread Army crumbles again for the last time.

He alongside the rest of the Dread Army and Goliath Organization (sans Rokudou, the leader of Goliath) appear as contestants of the Silver Tower Tournament.

Custom Robo Arena

While Shinonome and the rest of the Dread Army don't appear physically in this game, their robos appear. In addition, one of the Gatekeeper systems in Greybaum's base is named after him.

Trivia

  • Shinonome directly translates to Dawn. Like the other members of the Dread Army (besides Homra), his translated name relates to the stage that he is fought on. In this case, Dawn refers to the dark yet visible sky. Sphere Station and Dark Star both have the dark space visible.
  • His localized name Genome. This refers more to his robo Zola, which is named after famous French writer Émile Zola, who was well known for his writings in the literary school of naturalism. Some naturalism stories relate to the characters' genetics and heritage.
    • In fact, Shinonome/Genome and Zola both look like him:
