Crew up! Break it down! is the fourth episode of Zoids: Wild. It first aired in Japan on July 28, 2018.


As Arashi travels, his sense of adventure kicks in. He wants to come up with a name for his team, and eventually decides on "Chill Squad", along with a logo of a (terribly drawn) Liger.

As his journey continues, he finds that he runs out of food much too quickly.

But as fate would have it, he comes across some people willing to feed him. Their names are Deejay Boombox, Emcee Tempo and Doctor Oldschool.

These three turn out to be members of the Dark Metal Empire. It also shows that they aren't intrinsically evil, they've just been given jobs by Dark Metal (although perhaps blackmailed into it)

However, as time passes this episode introduces Drake one of the "Four Dark Warriors" of the Dark Metal Empire, pilot of Ruin.

Arashi initially tries to get Drake to join his team, but Drake promptly refuses.

When Drake realises Arashi has the Liger, Drake and Arashi fight. Drake utilises his Dark Blast technique to fight off Arashi's Wild Blast.

But before Drake can defeat Arashi outright, he is recalled to serve Gigaboss, letting Arashi off the hook.


  • In Japanese the term for "Four Dark Warriors" is more literally translated as "Four Heavenly Kings", this is used in the Netflix description. A more well-known translation of this term is the "Elite Four" from Pokemon.
  • Deejay Boombox, Emcee Tempo and Doctor Oldschool are called: Happy, Lucky and Ooky in Japanese
  • In the Japanese next-time clips, when talking about Penne, the narrator mentions is this girl an 'Angel' or a 'Demon'. This is a common line used in mech anime, dating back to the first Super Robot show Mazinger Z, which asks if Mazinger is a 'God' or a 'Devil'.
