The Birth of Deckman No. 10 is the first omake manga strip to appear in Battle Angel Alita and is found in the first volume, Rusty Angel. It was not included in Viz's first printing of Rusty Angel, but appears in the second printing.
In response to a recruiting commercial for deckmen, a large, unnamed Scrapyard resident decides to become a deckman and fulfill a childhood dream. At one of the Factories he is processed by Deckman 15, retaining only his facial flesh and brain's language center. Reborn as Deckman 10, he is then asked why he became a deckman.
