The Grounchar is an Echdina-type of Zoid, a race of mechanical lifeforms from the fictional Zoids universe.
An Echidna-type Zoid developed by the Eisen Dragoons for electronic warfare. This was the first Zoid that was explicitly developed to be used while underground. The plan was to lure enemy forces into an area laden with subterrain Grounchars, where they would activate their jamming systems and incapacitate enemy Zoids. It could also be used directly in combat, for instance, by attacking a Gojulas Giga from below to damage its legs. This technology was later used by the Dark Spiner.
Battle Story AppearancesEdit
The Grounchar was first released as part of the Zoids (1999) line.
The Zoid has no motor, but can be manaually posed. As with other Zoids of it's type, the Grounchar comes with a extra mini-figure, and a name plate.
