Following the Invid metamorphosis into human form, prototype mecha combining the best attributes of the Invid Fighter Scout, Enforcer, and Commander, were created to counter human advancements in Robotechnology, most notably the Veritech Alpha and Beta Fighters. Called the Invid Overlord, this variable mecha was intended to be presented to the highest ranking humanoid members of Invid society.

The Overlord is the first Invid mecha to incorporate fully-transformable variable geometry, but fortunately none were deployed before the Robotech Expeditionary Force's final assault to reclaim the Earth. The scattered remains of prototype unit(s) found at Reflex Point are the only evidence that this unique alien mecha even existed.
