The Gravity Ptera is a pterodactyl-type of Zoid, a race of mechanical lifeforms from the fictional Zoids universe.


The Gravity Ptera is a Pterodactyl-type Zoid, created by the Guylos Empire.

The last of the Gravity Zoids, the Gravity Ptera is the only flying design amongst them. The Zoid uses a Gravity Wheel to provide both lift and power, making it a lot more agile than other flying Zoid types. Conceived mainly as a bomber, the Zoid's primary weapons are a pair of long-range heavy missile launchers.

When the other Gravity Zoids were re-released in Japan, their statistics were somewhat altered. However, the Gravity Ptera never received such a release, and thus lacks full tech data.

Battle Story Appearances[]

As a Hasbro-designed Zoid, the Gravity Ptera never appeared in the official battle story. The model's box and label sheet carries the insignia of the fictional Guylos Empire, a region on the Eastern Continent populated by exiles.

Media Appearances[]

Unlike the other three Gravity Zoids, the Gravity Ptera has never appeared in any Zoids anime or video games.


Zoids: Build Customize Mobilize[]

The Gravity Ptera was introduced as part of the Zoids: Build Customize Mobilize line.

The Gravity Ptera comes on four frames, along with a "gravity wheel" ripcord motor, a clear canopy, two missile launchers, eight rubber caps, a small blue pilot, a ripcord, and label sheets. The Gravity Ptera is moulded in light blue and yellow, with a clear canopy.

The Zoid uses a ripcord motor for motion; once activated the Zoid rolls forwards on a pair of wheels in its belly, while its beak opens and closes and the wings flap. The Zoid can also be positioned in a standing "Sentinel" mode with its head pointed forwards; in this mode all its features are still active.

The Gravity Ptera was released in North America in 2003. It was later sold in Australia.

The kit retailed for $13.99 at stores.


Although the Gravity Ptera is a Guylos Empire Zoid, this Zoid's assembly manual mistakenly identifies it as a Helic Republic Zoid.
