Anime[edit | edit source]
In Zoids: Wild, the Wild Liger is known as Liger.
Liger is piloted by Arashi, the main character of Zoids: Wild. Known as a legendary Lion-Type Zoid, the Liger initially escaped from the Dark Metal Empire after defeating 100 soldiers. Team Supreme searched for it, before meeting Arashi.
The Liger is introduced as a "legendary" Zoid. This is not just an idle title, as is revealed in episode 44 when Arashi learns of the ancient legend involving the Liger.
The Liger is a unique, stubborn, Zoid. Very few people are allowed near the Liger, and even fewer allowed to touch it, let alone ride it.
Several other people have been able to ride on Liger. Maverick is let onto the Zoid, a strange twist of fate considering that he could not board any other Zoid. Battalia is the first member of the Freedom to touch the Liger other than Arashi. Much later, in episode 43 Mitsuba rides the Liger with Arashi.
The Liger goes through several trials and tribulations. When learning what happened to Quade, the Liger goes Berserk in episode 14. This berserk form glows purple and rends Arashi rogue. He remembers nothing while in this state. After defeat in episode 20, Arashi seeks out Master Bug and learns a new powerful technique called "Ultra King Claw".
In the final episode, Liger and Arashi defeated Demise and Gigaboss using King Claw, putting an end to the Dark Metal Empire. After that, both of them dashed into the unknown in order to explore their huge world.
After Dias loses his Triceradogos in episode 12, Dias receives a silver Wild Liger from the Republic which he first boards in episode 25. This Wild Liger does not spout blades on the back, and instead has a cannon pack and several custom parts.
Dias uses the Wild Liger in several sorties, one notable inclusion is using the Gravity Cannon against the Zero Grizis in episode 44. The Gravity Cannon can only be used by a Lion-type Zoid, so must be sortied by either Dias or Leo.
