The Shogunate was a massive, advanced mech that was created by the Japanese Polity to surpass the gen:LOCK program, and to defend Japan from invading Union forces. Unlike the Holons that are piloted only by one mind, the Shogunate is piloted by over two thousand minds according to General Genji Anno.

At the end of gen:LOCK issue #9, and in issue #10, Sycorax, with Julian Chase in its control, hijacks the Shogunate and attacks Osaka until it was destroyed by both Japan and the Union forces under Commander Carlyle through orders of Yasamin Madrani in the last two chapters of the comics.
