The Furolesios (フロレシオス) is a plesiosaurus-type Zoid, part of a race of biomechanical creatures that make up the Zoids franchise.


Furolesios, known to the European market as Hydrazoid, is a plesiosaurus-type Zoid designed for amphibious combat. More at home in the water than on land, it has flippers, unlike the later Empire Brachios design, and uses massive ballast tanks to become capable of proper underwater operation. Being one of the first Republic Zoids designed for this purpose, it was, for a time, one of the stronger Zoids in the water, and along with Aquadon formed the bulk of their naval force.

Battle Story AppearancesEdit

Media AppearancesEdit

Video GamesEdit

The Furolesios appears as a catchable Zoid in Genobreaker's Story, like other small windup Zoids of its time.


Zoids (1983)Edit

Furolesios was released as part of the Zoids (1983) line. It is a snap together kit. The Zoid shares some parts (mainly, the ballast tanks and part of the body) with the Aquadon. It is colored similarly to the earlier Helic windup model kits: grey and dark blue, with off-white "whitehead" cockpit (shared by all small Zoids of the era), smoke cockpit glass, and black caps. The Zoid could be customized with many parts from the windup remodeling set later released separately (such as additional guns and missiles).

Spider-Man and ZoidsEdit

The zoid was released in Europe in 1984 under the name Hydrazoid as part of the Spider-Man and Zoids line. The Zoid was identical to the Zoids (1983) version except for the packaging.

Toy's Dream ProjectEdit

The Zoid was issued as a part of the Toy's Dream Project Helic Memorial Box Set II.

Aquadon shares parts with the Furolesios, and the two worked together in the Republic's original naval forces.
