====Chaotic Century and Guardian Force====
A maroon Gustav is the key Zoid used by [[Moonbay]] during ''[[Zoids: Chaotic Century]]'' and ''[[Zoids: Guardian Force]]''. The Gustav's two trailers are used to carry the [[Command Wolf]] and [[Shield Liger]] on long-distance journeys.

A maroon Gustav is the key Zoid used by [[Moonbay]] during ''[[Zoids: Chaotic Century]]'' and ''[[Zoids: Guardian Force]]''. The Gustav's two trailers are used to carry the [[Command Wolf]] and [[Shield Liger]] on long distance journeys.
   
During the ''Guardian Force'' series, Moonbay's Gustav is seriously damaged by the [[Charged particle cannon|Charged Particle Cannon]] from [[Raven|Raven's]] [[Geno Saurer]]. However, the thick armor of the Gustav was able to protect the [[Zoid Core]], allowing the Zoid to be rebuilt. For the rest of the series, however, one segment of the Gustav's shell is white, implying the spare part came from a standard Gustav.

Moonbay's Gustav is also shown to be armed, with a pair of stubby, forward-mounted cannons hidden behind a panel above the cockpit. This is likely to be a personal modification, as no other Gustav shown in the anime has been armed. (Incidentally, this would be a difficult modification to make on the model, as that panel holds the shell together.)

Several other Gustavs are seen in use by the Republican and Imperial militaries. These are distinguished from Moonbay's Zoid by the use of the white-and-green OJR color scheme. They are further distinguished from Republican to Imperial by the cockpit color; orange for the Republic, green for the Empire.

Gustavs were used in ''[[Zoids: New Century]]'' as transports by a number of teams, most notably the Fluegel Team. Moonbay's Gustav from ''Guardian Force'' (right down to the white armor segment) makes a cameo appearance in the background in episode 23.

====Fuzors====
In ''[[Zoids: Fuzors]]'', [[Sweet]] drives a Gustav that is used to support and transport the Mach Storm Zoids. The Gustav's appearance is somewhat different from the previous shows; rather than a pair of open-topped tracked trailers, the Zoid pulls a single, large, enclosed trailer. Haldo also used a Gustav with a similar design. Sweet's Gustav followed the OJR color scheme. Haldo's Gustav was similar to the OJR as it had a white shell, but was different as it had a blue underbody.

====Genesis====
 
====Genesis====
Several Gustavs appeared in ''[[Zoids: Genesis]]''. They mostly carried large, box-like trailers, and were used by almost every faction. Digald's had a grey shell and maroon underbody, while the anti-Digald forces had a light blue shell and dark blue body. Yakku, a character introduced in the second half of the series, had one similar to Moonbay's seen in the previous series (though it had a vastly different cockpit interior and trailer). Zairin's unit's Gustav could be distinguished from the others because it had a symbol of a Rose wrapped around a lightning bolt on the trailer. While seen frequently, Gustavs played relatively minor roles.

Gustavs in the anime are depicted as being larger than their model counterparts; while the Gustav model kit is smaller than the [[Blade Liger]] model kit, in the anime, Moonbay was able to completely shield [[Van Flyheight|Van's]] Blade Liger from Raven's Charged Particle Beam. The Gustav in the anime was also able to carry five people in its cockpit, and the trailers were able to carry two large Zoids instead of just one.

The external size, while slightly larger, was not consistent with the size of the cockpit; the Zoid's cockpit interior is far larger than its exterior would allow for.
