Arashi is a fictional character from the anime series Zoids: Wild. He is the main protagonist of the series, and pilot of the Liger. He has light brown hair with a single yellow streak that sticks up and zig-zags wildly, green eyes and apricot skin. His clothing consists of a slightly oversized blue u-neck t-shirt with a large horizontal pale blue-white stripe, orange baggy capris trousers with a pale yellow tool belt, a red beanie which he wears on his head and brown and white lace-up shoes with blue-grey shoelaces. He also wears bandages on his arms for unknown reasons.
Arashi looks to find the ultimate Zoid partner, venturing into a Zoid exclusion zone outside his village.
Arashi appears in the manga in much the same way as in the anime. Stylistically, his tongue sticks out most of the time, and he is seen with his lollipop more often.
Arashi is a hot-headed youngster with a lot of spirit.
Ability as a Zoid pilot
Arashi starts the series as a novice Zoid pilot. Although he can ride the Liger, a legendary Zoid, he starts off weaker than those around him using much more inferior Zoids. He begins to gain the trust of his zoid Liger but the journeys tough and hard.
At the start of the series, he is briefly mentored by Quade, and gains considerable skill in a short period of time. By bonding with the Liger he quickly becomes able to use the Wild Blast effortlessly.
As time goes on, his skills plateau. Using his "King Claw" (King of the Claw in Japanese) attack, he proves to be strong, but is defeated on occasion by powerful opponents such as Drake and Gigaboss. He learns and adapts to his surrounding and creates a special attack he calls, Ultra King Claw!
In the middle of the series, he is seen facing overwhelming defeat, and enters a raging Berserk mode. This mode is strong, but uncontrollable, even attacking teammates.
It's not until he meets Quade's old master that he grows considerably in strength. Learning the "Ultra King Claw" (King of Claw Spiral in Japanese) attack, he manages to reach a potency consistently at or above the Four Dark Warriors.
After the fallen of the Dark Metal Empire, Arashi and Liger continues to travel alone.
Arashi has his own unique relationships with the following characters:
Quade: One of the first Zoids pilots Arashi meets, Quade and Arashi get along well, although their personalities tend to clash a bit.
Battalia: Battalia and Arashi get along well. He invites her to join his team, and she becomes their first member.
- While the majority of the Zoids Wild cast have names that relate to food, Arashi does not. His name translates to "Storm". His English name is unchanged from the Japanese version.
- In the Manga, Arashi's age is initially 4 years old when his father leaves. In the Anime, Arashi is reunited with his father in episode 45, after 10 years pass. If the anime and manga ages match, this would make Arashi approximately 14 in the series. However, there is currently no information to suggest that the Manga and Anime share character timelines.
