A summary of the Battle Story from multiple sources.

Notes:

  • All dates are ZAC ("7 or 8 periods ahead of Earth's calendar" according to History of Zoids).
  • Information about ZAC 2030-2056 originating from Shogakukan's School Grade magazines is in bold, as it often conflicts with early Tomy info (boxes, Graphics, History of Zoids) and All About Battle Machine Beasts (also by Shogakukan) - these sources are in italics.
  • The "new Zoids" column shows important examples, not every Zoid released at that time.

1/2101 [M] 3/2101 [F] Prozen sends another attack force to Nixie Base, this time composed of Wardicks (mass-produced thanks to the Organoid System) and 10 Death Stinger KFDs (Killer From the Dark), led by Wolff's childhood friend Anna Tares and made controllable by using technology from the Interface. However, they are wiped out by the Republic's new Ray Force and its CAS-equipped Liger Zeroes (based on the prototype). Liger Zero F3, M
~2101 The Republic attempts to defend Nicaidos Island from Empire attacks, managing to defeat even Death Stingers with just two Zero Panzers. On Europa, the high-speed Mirage Corps is ambushed by stealth Elephanders, only escaping thanks to a sniper in a Buster Tortoise. Some time later, an Empire base uses the hard-to-control Geno Breaker to fight against a Salamander air-raid. W, M
6/2101 The Republic finally launches its Dark Continent invasion, but their fleet is met by a huge army of Imperial aquatic Zoids in the Andar Sea Naval Battle. Completely defeated, the Republic fleet takes refuge in Triangle Daras. Their Zoids soon go berserk and attack each other due to the plasma storms, but are rescued by strange new Imperial Zoids.

8/2101 When the Ray Force penetrates deep into Empire territory, the Eisen Dragoon reveals their plan: to weaken both sides equally until they can take over. The Ray Force's Zoids are frozen by the Grounchar's jamming waves, but they are saved by the shields and firepower of reactivated Gunblusters. Ray has almost defeated Wolff when the Bloody Demon, an experimental Death Saurer variant, appears and wipes out the force. Ray uses a mix of all the CAS equipment left in the burning Hover Cargo to defeat the Bloody Demon, but Wolff recovers its pilot and escapes to rejoin the Eisen Dragoon's main force. F3, M
~9/2101 A Republic scout team infiltrates an Empire base and discovers their new Liger Zero variant, finding that the König Wolf is no match for the Zero X. Soon after, the Republic sends their recreated Madthunder on a secret mission, but are attacked by a Guylos force. Prozen then airdrops a prototype Dark Spiner into the battle, intending to remote-destruct it and take out both sides, but the two teams work together to defeat the Dark Spiner and are narrowly saved from the explosion by the Madthunder's Anti-Charged Particle Shield.

9/2101 High-ranking soldiers Herman and Schubaltz hold a secret meeting to discuss the Eisen Dragoon's plot, but Prozen sends a Liger Zero X to assassinate them. Schubaltz (and Tommy Paris) are seriously wounded, but Hermann uses a König Wolf DSR to snipe the Zero X's pilot while it is distracted trying to take out a Republic Madthunder being repaired in the nearby factory. However, the Empire has finally managed to resurrect their Death Saurer cores (again thanks to the Organoid System), and Prozen sends fifty Death Saurers in an all-out assault on the Republic, keeping his Prozen Knights in reserve.
Meanwhile, on the Western Continent, a Molga force delivering a new Chimera Core meets the prototype Gojulasgiga, but Jasz Noguchi's Molga Rokurou Special manages to knock it off a cliff and destroy it.

~10/2101 The Republic develops the Cannoneer Gordos and Fire Fox to work together, but Empire spies steal the Fire Fox and use it against them. M
10/2101 The full forces of both armies clash, with the Madthunders narrowly holding out against the Death Saurers. After six days, Schubaltz and Herman arrive to call a cease-fire, uniting the Helic and Guylos armies. F4, M
11/2101 Prozen finally unveils his plot, using the Prozen Knights to take over the Empire capital Valhalla and kidnap Emperor Rudolph. He explains to Rudolph that he is the son of Zenebas Muroa and intends to revive the Zenebas Empire. In order to annihilate both armies, he has hidden countless Zoid Cores underneath the city, rigged to self-destruct at his command. While the combined Helic/Guylos army invades the capital and takes down the Prozen Knights, Rudolph challenges Prozen to a Zoid battle, managing to disconnect some of the tubes connecting the Zoid Cores to Prozen's Bloody Death Saurer. Prozen tries to force Rudolph's gold Saber Tiger to press the detonation switch, but Schubaltz's Iron Kong bursts in, shooting the Death Saurer's cockpit and shielding Rudolph. Fatally wounded, Prozen sets his Zoid to overload, detonating the Zoid Cores and wiping out most of the city and both armies. Meanwhile, the Eisen Dragoon invades the virtually undefended Central Continent, using the jamming waves of the Dark Spiner to freeze the Republic's defence force. Led by Wolff Muroa, they control a quarter of the continent within three weeks, taking in citizens and forming the Neo Zenebas Empire. Snipe Master

12/2101 Just seven weeks after their invasion, the Eisen Dragoon controls most of the Central Continent. Wolff invades the Republic capital, not realising President Camford is actually Elena, daughter of Zenebas and his own aunt. Camford escapes in a Saberlion, which narrowly escapes a pursuit force of Guntigers. However, when pilot Tommy Paris checks the hatch where Camford was hiding, it is open and empty, except for a few documents. Saberlion

winter 2101 A Republic scout force finds a girl living in the Central Mountain Range who possesses the Mask of Zenebas. It is the proof of inheritance of the Zenebas throne, thought to have been lost 50 years ago. However, the girl turns out to be the son of a Zenebas bodyguard, rather than a descendant of Zenebas and heir to the Neo Zenebas Empire. W, M
1/2102 The surviving remnants of the Republic army return to the Central Continent, hiding in the Central Mountain Range and working on a new Zoid whose blueprints were left behind in the Saberlion. Rudolph and Schubaltz take control of the few Guylos survivors, while the citizens of the Central Continent come to accept their new Neo Zenebas rulers. F4
2103 Investigating the Republic remnants on the Western Continent, a Sturm Tyrann pilot from Neo Zenebas encounters an old Guylos acquaintance in a Raven Raptor. They fight but are interrupted by a custom Gojulasgiga, and must work together to defeat it. W, M
2104 The Republic develops a handful of Zoids using the new Blox System, which allows Zoids to combine or exchange parts. Soon after, the Neo Zenebas Empire creates the completely autonomous Chimera BLOX. However, the fighting instincts of the Chimeras soon override their programming, causing them to attack indiscriminately, and they can evolve themselves by taking in the cores and equipment of enemies.

autumn 2105 The Black Dragoon, led by ace pilot Genius Deldaros in a Stealth Stinger, launches an assault on a secret Republic base in the mountains. Frozen by Dark Spiners, none of the Republic Zoids can fight back except for a single Gojulas The Ogre. They consider self-destructing the almost-finished Gojulasgiga, as its anti-jamming armour is still incomplete, but the Ogre manages to defeat all the Dark Spiners and the Gojulasgiga wipes out the Black Dragoon. Elsewhere, the Diablotiger arrives from the future to battle the ancient Cyclops and a Republic pilot uses a custom Salamander to oppose the Lord Gale. Gojulasgiga

winter 2106 The Neo Zenebas Empire reintroduces the Dimetrodon, further increasing their strength in electronic warfare. The Republic army responds by bringing back the Gorhecks, whose Crystal Radar can neutralise the Empire's jamming waves. Lord Gale X2, X3, M
spring 2106 The Republic army begins its counterattack, invading Cook Fortress while the Empire is distracted by empty Guylos carriers arriving. Protected from jamming by the Gorhecks and surrounded by a guard unit of Arosaurers, the Gojulasgiga easily defeats the Empire forces, even a Death Saurer, and captures the fortress. Meanwhile, the Empire introduces manned BLOX Zoids such as the Lord Gale and Deantler to control the smaller Chimera BLOX. The Republic uses Rob Herman's disappearance during an anti-jamming armour test as an excuse to create a "memorial force" containing the Heavy Arms König Wolf. Deantler X4, X5, M
summer 2106 The Neo Zenebas Empire completes the Seismosaurus, whose Super-Focused Charged Particle Cannon (nicknamed the Zenebas Cannon) can destroy the Gojulasgiga from a great distance. Completely defeated, the remnants of the Republic army flee to the Eastern Continent where they find ZOITEC, the corporation that invented the Blox System and originally supplied it to both countries. Fearing an invasion by the Empire, ZOITEC decides to support only the Republic. Seismosaurus

A group of Ligerzero Phoenix invades the heavily-guarded Chimaera Fortress City, defeating the army of Chimera BLOX inside. When a Seismosaurus appears, they sacrifice themselves to protect the Republic's trump card: the Gairyuki, based on a Tyrannosaurus-type wild Zoid offered by the Guylos Empire. Although the Republic succeeds in capturing the city, their attempt to capture the Seismosaurus is stopped by the new Energy Liger. Gairyuki

spring 2109 The Helic Republic sends their entire remaining army into a final battle with the Neo Zenebas Empire to regain Helic City. Emperor Wolff Muroa is ambushed by the Ray Force, but his custom Energy Liger easily defeats Ray Gregg's Zero Phoenix. Ray is saved by the arrival of the Jet Falcon, a Zoid developed for the Empire by ZOITEC but later offered to the Republic instead. The Zero Falcon stabs the Energy Liger's core, but its Energy Charger continues to produce power with nowhere for it to go, threatening to explode and wipe out both armies just like Prozen's Death Saurer. However, Wolff and Ray work together to divert the energy into the Zero Falcon, saving the two armies and providing hope that the war might finally come to an end. Jet Falcon X12
2109 The Isurugi brothers use their Shadow Arm Lizards to investigate the mad scientist Zalca and his new Death Stinger ZS on Nicaidos Island. M

5/2230 In Blue City on the Eastern Continent, Zoids are used only for constructive purposes and entertainment, and tournament pilots called Zi-Fighters are constantly searching for the strongest Zoids. ZOITEC manages to obtain the cores of three legendary tiger-type Zoids, but when they try to construct the first one, they are forced to divide it into two Zoids (capable of combining) to keep it from overloading.

8/2230 Zi-Arms has also created the Mega Death Saurer, planning to equip it with the three tiger cores and make it the strongest Zoid in history. However, the Mega Death Saurer runs wild, and the three tigers are forced to join forces in order to defeat it. X16, D
the far future In the Beith Republic, Zoids are used for constructive purposes as well as in illegal tournaments. Despite using only Blox Zoids, the Republic plans to outlaw the Changemize technology that allows them to combine. However, the Dynas Empire discovers the Changemize technology and sends their new Groundrago to attack the Republic capital. Unable to fight it alone, the Republic's Zoids fuse into the Bitegriffon, but the Groundrago separates, cornering it. When the Empire learns of "the arrival of an unexpected enemy", the Groundrago withdraws to their mobile fortress. Both sides begin excavating the cores of "legendary" ancient Zoids and placing them into Neo Blox bodies, allowing them to form even stronger fusions such as the Valkyrie Caesar, which was sent on a mission to recover the Republic capital...
