Unlike the Beast Liger, the Rising Liger comes equipped with long-range weapons by default. The revolver on its back additionally allows its melee weapons to pierce tough armour. Finally, the Zoid itself is very sturdy, and is able to withstand moderate shelling.
These traits, combined with the already good manoeuvrability make the Zoid an extremely effective weapon. In episode 16 the Republic test the capabilities of the Zoid, and find it to be on-par with the best Zoids of the Empire, and even able to fight several Zoids at once.
Leo's ability to utilise his Zoids Factor also proves decisive. His metal body is durable, and he is able to unleash an Evo Blast without needing a special pilot suit.
The Rising Liger's power in close combat proved instrumental in stopping the Genospino.
Additionally, when equipped with optional weapons and provided with support, it defeated the Omega Rex twice. The first time using Gravity Cannons, the second using "Long Buster Cannons" armed with unique shells.
