Forced Release! Death Rex is the twentieth episode of Zoids: Wild. It first aired in Japan on November 17, 2018.


A showdown between Gallagher and the 6 members of Freedom/Supreme

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

Even luring Gallagher to Kuroame's Grachiosaurus proves ineffective.

During all this, Gallagher'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 Gallagher's talons. The others are forced to hold off their attack, lest Arashi become crushed.

Gallagher mocks Bacon, 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 Gallagher.

But, Gallagher isn't that easy to defeat. With only superficial damage, Gallagher pulls out his Death Metal Key. He unleashes the Death Rex's Death Blast.

As Arashi continues to attack, Candy realises that he will be killed if he engages the Death Rex 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 Bacon. It's enough to cease his attack. Candy and Sauce grab him and the team run.

As they do, Gallagher's Death Metal 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 Bacon's old master.
