    I was thinking of making this a Forum post, like the previous overhauls have been. But I also think there's nothing controversial to this change, so I'll post the summary here as a blog article instead.

    Something that's been on my backburner for a long, long, time has been the way Battle Story is handled on the wiki.

    It's simply not up to standard. But since the source text is all in Japanese, it's been nearly impossible to provide good enough citations to do a full cleanup. I think, starting today, I'm just going to bite the bullet and attempt it.

    I'm going to use The Zoids File as the primary point of reference. As far as I can tell, this is the only officially translated summary of Battle Story. With that as a starting point, I'm then goin…

    Category Cleanup

    March 22, 2019 by Sylvanelite

    As discussed on the rules page, it's proposed to maintain a master-list of categories, and apply that to the whole site. To make this rule change however, we need a master list. Below I have attempted to list the current categories, and the changes to make. This is just a "first" pass attempt at making changes, not what would be expected of a final product.

    Below is the full list of categories, comments are made with a hyphen after the category. Comments marked with a question mark are not finalised, and are just comments. Comments marked without a question mark are going to be worked on. The list is sorted into grouping, with "attribute type" being the lowest-hanging fruit for removal.

    Just a short clip of what the Zoids Legacy Bug looks like:

    The bug is mentioned on the Legacy Article. While I don't know what causes it in the first place, using an Evacuation Item to get out worked, but doesn't clear the forcefield.

    To clear that, you have to beat the final boss and save again.

    Then you can resume from the endgame.

    This bug has been on my copy of the game for about a decade, so I'm pretty happy I got out (and frankly surprised the game even works at all after such a long time).

    Greetings Zoid Warriors! I'm embarrased to say, but what I hat thought was a finished 'Building A Better Gungyalado' series, is not exactly over. I accidently left out a few key points, which I will be filling out in this post. I hope you enjoy adding the following information to your already undefeatable Gungyalado!

    It is a widely known fact that there are very few 'modern' Zoids capable of operating watery terrain. Sure, there's the the Zenebian Warshark, the Hammerhead, the Cannondiver  the Leo Gator, and several aquatic retrofits to existing land-based Zoids, such as the Gojulas Mariner, the Dark Nessios, and the Orudios Marine. If we building our dream Gungyalado, why not modify it to operate beneath the waves, as well as above it?

    Hello fellow Zoiders! Today, I'm picking up where I left off, with 'Building A Better Gungyalado.'

    Please keep in mind that this is a flight of fancy, on the part of a self-proclaimed role-playing munchking. Think of what followers (and what came before), as a 'dream list' of how the featured Zoid could be 'improved' upon.

    Previously, I laid out several modifications that would improve the Gungyalado's defensive and offensive capabilities. this included:

    • Self-Forging Armor: The Gungyalado's armor would become stronger when impacted by a bullet, a laser beam, a particle beam, and/or a purely thermal weapon. While neigh-invulnerable against the accepted standard weapons that most Zoids are equipped with, this type of armor vulverable to vibrati…

    Everyone that knows me, knows that I am a big-time gamer. I love role-playing games, be them MMOs such as 'World of Warcraft' or 'Star Wars: The Old Republic,' single-player such as 'Dragon Age,' 'Fable,' 'Xenosaga,' or 'Enchanted Arms'; or traditional co-operative play 'pen and paper' tabletop games like 'Dungeons & Dragons,' 'Pathfinder,' and the the old fan-created 'Zoids' rpg game. I am also a writer, and have 'played' in a number of forum-based co-operative storytelling 'games' since I've been on the internet.

    In the past few months, I've been trying to overhaul the Zoids rpg forum that I own and operate. Mainly, that means revamping everything from the ground up, including the characters I have created for it. One of those 'characters'…

    Zoids Fanon: Of Zoidians.

    September 1, 2016 by Krowfeather

    Greetings, y'all. It's been a long time since I made a blog post here. Thought I'd share some information about my fanon-series 'Battle Century.'

    Today, it's a brief look at the Zoidians of Planet Zi. Mind you, these are just musings; brainstormings, if you will, and not set in stone. Feel free to discuss, suggest revisions, offer additional content, or down-right use the concepts for you.

    • Zoidians organize themselves into Tribes.
    • There are technically over 50 seperate Tribes in the Central Continent of Delpoi alone. Due to war, natural disaster, and unification, however, there are legally only 2 tribes that now inhabit the Central Continent: The Deep-Core Tribe, and the Tribe of Winds. The Deep-Core Tribe, for the most part, possesses a stro…

    While randomly Googling yesterday, I came across something interesting, namely this map of Planet Zi:

    The interesting thing is the location of New Helic City.

    Why is this interesting? Well, to explain that, there's a number of things that first have to be mentioned about the backstory on Planet Zi.

    In the Battle Story timeline, there's a war that rages between the Republic and the Empire, however, this all happens on the Central Continent. If you want to read the story, I've got it on a previous blog: User blog:Sylvanelite/The Zoids File

    That blog was based on the battle story that came from the manga, which came with an alternative map of Planet Zi, which looks like this:

    I used Altervista because they're free and still provided everything I wanted without intrusive ads. So far it's working out well.

    First Zoid?

    February 19, 2015 by Riptidemtmte

    You know how every Zoid has their own special serial number (NBZ-###, RZ-###, and etc.)? I've been looking at the List of Zoids, and I noticed that I've seen quite a few (X)-001 Zoids. Which one is truly the first Zoid ever created? And on that note, do the serial numbers even matter when determining the first Zoid ever (in-universe, not IRL)?

    Working on fanchars

    March 30, 2014 by Krowfeather

    As an avid writer and text-based role-player, I am constantly inventing characters to populate imaginary worlds. Recently, I've been drawn to create a number of characters for my various Zoids continuities I help to create.

    I am not entirely sure why I keep doing this, but I think it has something to do with my love for background characters and background information. I'm always curious about how a single, unnamed character impacts a major storyline, or what pivital even sparked the initial war between the Earth and Wind clans of Battle Story. Sometimes I wonder if I go a bit too far with my love for details... Either way, I do tend to enjoy myself when I delve into the mechanics of character creation and world building.

    It's been a long time coming, but I can finally announce that the Overhaul is now complete!

    Working from A to Z, every Zoid has been updated to use a consistent format, matching the pages of discussions nearly two years in the making.

    The biggest change, the inclusion of the Zoids Model Releases table, and branching off each release into it's own article, in my opinion, has made this information a thousand times better.

    The changes have been a long time coming, and are perhaps the biggest change to the wiki since it's inception (only perhaps the inclusion of all Anime characters/episodes/etc being bigger).

    Of course, there's still many things to do beyond the scope of the Overhaul. We still need citations for many things, checking for errors o…

    Zoids and MMD

    October 5, 2013 by Zoids Fanatic

    So, what's this? Well, of course it's Zeke, but where is it from you may wonder? A new Zoids Game? A animated movie? Well, no, it's from MikuMikuDance (MMD for short). Though I'm getting ahead of myself, so let me backtrack.</p>

    If you remember from a year or so ago those cool Zoids CGIs that surfaced on YouTube, you can thank Anomaro Karinto for them.. Our friend is a 3D programmer, it would seem, who has a love of Zoids. So much so that he made CGI models and actual Zoid models for MMD. Of course, when I found that out, I jumped on it and started looking for actual Zoids characters. No luck, but I did have hope. I found this  while searching.

    Support Zoids

    May 23, 2013 by Azimuth727

    Hello everyone.

    Having more thoughts about creating new zoids. This one from the ground up... so it might take longer to model... but I wanted to know what everyone thought about support zoids. More specifically, in an NCZ setting. I understand where a team of dark spiners can function in a war situation, i.e., the battle story. However, we don't really see them in the series (or at least I can't think of an example). So, the question is: what would (could) a support zoid do in this situation? Here are my thoughts:

    1. Support rockets - can depoly a smokescreen or something else (ideas?) at a distant location.
    2. grappling hook - providing this zoid is heavier than what it hooks, you could basically grab an enemy and tie them down so they can't dod…

    Western Dubs

    May 15, 2013 by DjPheend

    Hi all! I've recently edited the Zoids Genesis, Gotoshi section.  In the anime he is portrayed as homosexual.  Now I realise Genesis will probably never receive an official western Dub, if they were going to they would have done so by now. But it got me thinking how would they of gotten around the gay issue with their strict policies? Sexual content of any variety let alone the gay variety never makes it through to the western dubbs.

    Overhaul Changes

    April 7, 2013 by Sylvanelite

    As part of the Overhaul, here is a list of the changes I have been making. Even though this post is very long - it is only a fraction of the full reasoning and details behind the overhaul. This is just a summary of the changes. I'm not finished with the overhaul just yet - it's still in progress, this is just an informational post. I've tried to post concise reasoning behind every change, but keep in mind the full reasoning is in the various discussions around the wiki. The examples used here are just for illustration.

    Long long time ago, Zoids were popular worldwide... Nowadays they are only popular in Asia (and many collectors still seek them)


    When I was young child, I really wanted a Zoid set. However, in those days, Zoid fans in United States would fight (or to the point of stealing the set from their shopping basket or shopping cart) with other Zoid fans/collectors for any or all sets that were just stock on the shelves. I would wait for a few years, but luckily my mom found some used sets at the local thrift store.

    So straight to the point of this blog; I have this bag of unknown Zoid parts and I had looked up the web and only found hints that it maybe a set from Singapore. The parts were made in Thailand & all of the parts a " © 1983-200…

    Why is it just the Ligers?

    December 26, 2012 by Mnzombie

    In every Zoids anime (and many video games) that I've seen, the main character always has a liger as his main zoid.  While I have nothing against ligers, I find it unfair to the hundreds of other zoids that don't get enough time in the spotlight.

    I woould personally enjoy reading a story where the main character (not an antagonist) pilot a Gairyuki.

    If anyone can come up with a story that has some other type of zoid as its main focus, I am all ears.

    The Gustav C.A.S. Spec. is a Insect-type Zoid, a species of biomechanical life form from the fictional Zoids universe.

    The Gustav C.A.S. Spec. is designed to be the smallest carrier zoid that has a C.A.S. changing system. The main Draw back on the Zoid is its lack of weapons though the implication of to mini zoids have made up for this some. The other drawback is to the C.A.S. system due to the size of the zoid it can only carry one addition C.A.S. at a time. Now in lue of a C.A.S. the storage area can be used to house other parts and weapons to be added to zoids as needed. The addition of 2 more platforms allows more to be carried and repaired for lengthier missions.

The back of the liger houses a energy plant to power both the main weapon and its new Omni-Directional Energy Shield as well as improve the power of the strike laser claws. The Omni-Directional Energy Shield allows the liger to make a e-shield bubble around its self the drawback of this is that the bubble cannot be maintained over 150km/h or while firing its weapons, tho a forward shield or a rear shield is plausible over 15…

    I have already decided on several aspects, the Namer is going to of course be the "last surviving" zoidian, he is going to have an organoid companion, this is going to take place before all the other stories . . . as humans havent colonized the planet yet.

    There will be a plethora of wild zoids, and the personalities of the zoids shall be transferred to their android pilots . . . thus making the Mind Riders the actual enemies . . . and the Zoid…

    Genoblade 2.0

    July 30, 2012 by Azimuth727

    Finally! Modeling is finished. Everything has been updated significantly, from the head blade to the tail. Where the old model involved ~2500 vertices the new one has closer to 10,000.

    Several parts received a complete overhaul. You'll notice the cannons are now more reasonably sized, and that the right-side cannon is now a laser-gatling gun. I decided that the old cannons just looked ridiculous, so I started by downsizing them. The gatling was then added because I felt that only one long-range cannon was needed and that it would increase the Genoblade's mid-range capabilities.

    The shoulder rockets are now less noticeable as they're integrated right into the shoulder armor. (The old ones, while more visible, just looked atrocious) I also dec…

    First off, the main ranged weapon.I have dubbed these the Quad Rail Cannons{I'm horrible comming up with names:)}. This hulking weapon hs three different firing modes. It can fire regular shells at high velocity, or special missile from the missile pod on top of it(details of which to come farther down) But the third firing mode is a powerful blast with a major drawback. The Quad Rail cannons can be super charged to fire out a beam with incredible power. However once fired, the Cannons will be disable…

    • "BP" in Zoids Battle Legends (probably: battle points, not a real currency)
