Welcome to the Zoids guide at TV.com
In the far reaches of the milkyway, on a planet called Zi, there are powerful machines with superior fighting skills called Zoids. The actual Zoids series is broken down into four mini-series. The four series names are in order of time: Chaotic Century, Guardian Force, New Century Zero, and Fuzors.
The first series is Chaotic Century. The first part take place during the war between the two greatest nations on Zi: the Empire and the Republic. Into this chaos enters three different yet connected lives: Van Flyheight, a young Republican who stumbles upon some ancient ruins; Zeek, an Organoid in the ruins who has the capacity to revive and mazimize the potential of Zoids; and Fiona, an ancient Zoidian awakened from her sleep and who now accompanies Van on his journey into destiny. With the help of the kooky Dr. D, the mercenary Irvine, and the independent Moonbay among others, Van inadvertently finds himself on a course to stop the war before it takes a disastrous turn. "Foolish Ambtions should not be given the right to rule the Glorious Guylos Empire" according to Prime Minster Homalef. Prozan wants to get rid of the current Emperor, Rudolph. An eight year old boy, who is destined to be King after his grandfather passed away. He meets up with Van and the gang, who guarantees to protect him and bring him back to Guygalos. With the ancient power of the Deathsaur backing Prozan, and with his flunkie, Raven and Shadow it seems that Prozan will suceed.
The following series, Guardian Force takes place several years after the peaceful resolution of the war. In order to help prevent future wars, a Guardian Force is jointly established by the Empire and the Republic. Its mission is to seek out volatile groups and contain them before they can cause more chaos. Because of their influence in the war, Van, Zeek, and Fiona are among the Guardian Force's key members. It is duirng this period that more of the Zoidian secret is revealed as the true battle for the of planet Zi begins! Hiltz, as did Prozan earlier, Hiltz has managed to resurrect the ancient power of the Death Stinger. A power such that exceeds the Deathsaur! The Guardian Force era was aired under the title of Chaotic Century in the US.
The Chaotic Century of planet Zi has long since passed into the pages of history. The Zoids that were once instruments of war and destruction now find a place in a new order and a new sport: organized Zoid combat. In essence, a New Century Zero has begun. Originally an unofficial sport, the realm of ruthless groups looking for power and control, that all changed with the establishment of the Zoid Battle Commission, which codified the rules of combat, established official leagues and events, and provided a means of enforcing the rules. Zoid battle thus emerged into the mainstream. Teams of Zoid pilots battle each other to become the top dog in the leagues, and the Blitz Team is preparing to rise to the challenge with the help of a pair of newcomers: Bit Cloud and the unpredictable Zoid Liger Zero. In this new world of organized mech combat, there still dwell elements of chaos, none more dangerous as the Backdraft Group, a rogue Zoids organization out for personal gains and power. Between this and the remaining teams in the league, Blitz Team has its work cut out, but if Bit Cloud is any indication, they're not afraid.
Years later, the Zoids battles have shifted scenes to the coliseum. There is something new about this year's Zoids battles. It seems that many Zoids can fuse together for enhanced power and speed. Can RD and his Mach Storm Team successfully compete against these new Zoids Fuzors? Will they unlock the secrets to fusing for their Zoids before it is too late? There's also a new organization lurking in the shadows of Blue City, can RD win battles against the powerful enemy Zoids AND prevent this dark scheme? In the newest saga, 1000 years have passed. Natural disasters have devastated planet Zi, killing off almost all life. Humans have gradually re-established civilization, salvaging ancient Zoids through diving and mining efforts. In a village whose most previous item is a giant sword which they worship as a holy symbol. A teenage boy discovers an ancient Liger-type Zoid while on a deep water salvage operation. Suddenly the village is attacked by skeletal Bio-Zoids intent on stealing a powerful generator located in the village. Our teenage hero awakens the Liger and discovers that the town's sacred sword is the Liger's weapon, together they fight off the mysterious Bio-Zoids. At least for now, and thus begins the Zoids Genesis. Will they be able to help the civilization survive?… Expand
