Whirlwind Training! is the twenty-second episode of Zoids: Wild. It first aired in Japan on December 01, 2018.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Arashi and the others resume training after passing the game of "Zoid Tag" last episode.
The episode starts in its usual benign fashion with a few jokes, many of them questioning if they are even being trained or just doing chores. However the trio soon find themselves in a labyrinth surrounded by a vast number of Zoids. As they fight off the Zoids, Arashi begins seeing Quade, and is reminded to open his eyes. Arashi doesn't get it initially, but soon begins to realise the small things around him.
He starts to use the wind in the labyrinth to learn new moves with the Liger and fight his way out.
They get out of the labyrinth, with Arashi showing hints of potential.
The trainer, Master Bug, points out their weaknesses, Arashi charges in, Battalia relies on stealth, and Analog is really slow. He tells Arashi to not get so hot-headed, Battalia to stand her ground, and Analog to focus on defence.
They again resume fighting, but prove more capable this time. After a few bouts, the episode comes to its climax, the Gyro uses its Wild Blast.
To fight it, Arashi unleashes his own Wild Blast, but taking heed from Quade's words changes his attack. He instead uses "Ultra King Claw!" which is enough to catch Gyro off guard and complete their training.
Two other points are made in the episode, unknown to the main cast, there's a mural under the ruins depicting the Liger. And that Arashi's Father is clearly seen as being one of Mushi's old acquaintances, but these are left unexplored for now.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- in the Japanese version, Quade's quotes are the same as Arashi's father. Along the lines of "the world is vast and the number of things to see in it is large." In the dub this is changed to be new lines.
- In the Japanese, Arashi's attack is "King of the Claw, Spiral"
