The Megaleon (メガレオン) (RZ-058) is a type of Zoid, a race of mechanical lifeforms from the fictional Zoids universe.
The Megaleon was produced to act as a kind of specialized turret. Along with a pair of powerful beam cannons AA, it had an advanced sensor array, making it a fairly capable Zoid for its size. Defensively, it sports an optical camouflage system to increase its longevity.

In the Battle Story, the Megaleon was designed to serve as a homeland defence Zoid for the Helic Republic. As such, when the Eisen Dragoons attacked the central continent in December of ZAC 2101, this was one of the Zoids that was used to try and halt their invasion. However, the situation was dire and the Zoid was vastly outnumbered, so it only played a minor role in the overall conflict.
The Megaleon was released as part of the Zoids (1999) line. It was introduced in February of 2002. The Zoid comes with three pilot figures, two normal ones, and one that fits into Megaleon's tongue. The tongue itself, along with several other parts, is composed of a translucent orange plastic. Megaleon's tongue does not fully retract into its mouth, but it can be stored on the Zoid's belly when not in use. It shares a sprue with Glaive Quama.
