Zoids Wild

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 lollypop 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 Wild Liger, a powerful Zoid, he starts off weaker than those around him using much more inferior Zoids.

At the start of the series, he is briefly mentored by Bacon, 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.

Arashi's Wild Blast

As time goes on, his skills plateau. Using his "King of the Claw" attack, he proves to be strong, but is defeated on occasion by powerful opponents such as Drake and Gallagher.

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 team mates.

It's not until he meets Bacon's old master that he grows considerably in strength. Learning the "King of Claw Spiral" attack, he manages to reach a potency consistently at or above the Four Heavenly Kings.


Arashi has his own unique relationships with the following characters:

Bacon: One of the first Zoids pilots Arashi meets, Bacon and Arashi get along well, although their personalities tend to clash a bit.

Penne: Penne 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".
