Demise's Dark Power! is the twentieth episode of Zoids: Wild. It first aired in Japan on November 17, 2018.


A showdown between Gigaboss and 6 members of Freedom/Supreme

The episode starts with all 6 of the good guys using their Wild Blasts, as they rush Gigaboss. But even with all their combined firepower, they find it hard to pin down Gigaboss. He dodges most anything they throw at him, and the few moves they land, he blocks and counters.

Even luring Gigaboss to Tremor's Grax proves ineffective.

During all this, Gigaboss's having the time of his life, he treats the onslaught as a Birthday Present, and his aloof behaviour constantly mocks the teams as they struggle to attack him.

Eventually, Arashi is pinned under Gigaboss's talons. The others are forced to hold off their attack, lest Arashi become crushed.

Gallagher mocks Quade, and this compounds with Arashi's frustration, causes the Liger to go Berserk. After a little while, Arashi's Liger goes beyond its Berserk form, it's still wild, but proves to be much more powerful and faster than before.

The combined team jumps on the opportunity, and manage to deal a few blows onto Gigaboss.

But, Gigaboss isn't that easy to defeat. With only superficial damage, Gigaboss pulls out his Hacker Key. He unleashes Demise's Dark Blast.

As Arashi continues to attack, Shade realises that he will be killed if he engages Demise at close range. So he makes their team change tactics, they try and stop Arashi from fighting. But he's uncontrollable.

Just as it looks like Arashi is going to charge into certain doom, he has a brief flashback of Quade. It's enough to cease his attack. Dyna and Shade grab him and the team run.

As they do, Gigaboss' Hacker Key breaks, it's only a prototype, so couldn't be used for the full duration. None the less, the team manage to escape.

Later Arashi wakes up, with no memory of the ending to the fight.

As the episode ends, Team Supreme instruct him to seek out Quade's old master.
