Onigiri is a fictional character from Zoids: Wild. He is the second member of Team Freedom outside of Arashi.
Arashi meets Onigiri in episode 7, and after the events in that episode, Onigiri joins Team Freedom. Onigiri is a "boy professor" and is very knowledgeable/passionate about Zoids. He was initially developing the technology required for Death Metal to use their Death Blast, but was reluctant to do his research due to the harm it caused the Zoids.
Ability as a Zoid pilotEdit
Onigiri is the second person on Team Freedom to use a Wild Blast attack. His fighting skills are lacking in comparison to much of the cast, but this is largely because he possesses a slow-moving Zoid. In single combat, he is unable to fight effectively against targets at close range. However, he makes up for this with versatility. Having one of the only effective long-range weapons in the series proves to be a potent tool for several fights.
Onigiri has his own unique relationships with the following characters:
Arashi: Arashi and Onigiri immediately get along well.
- Like most characters in Zoids Wild, Onigiri's name is based on food. Onigiri is a Japanese "rice ball" snack. A rice ball-like logo can be seen on Onigiri's back.
- Onigiri's fanaticism is often used to introduce Zoids during the series. When a new Zoid appears, Onigiri explains its name, type and abilities. This can happen even when Onigiri is nowhere near the Zoid in question, such as is the case with the Knuckle Kong.
