X Marks The Spot! is the 47th episode of Zoids: Wild. It first aired in Japan on the 8th of June 2019.
Drake has left the Dark Metal Empire, but still refuses to join Team Freedom. He sits apart from them as the episode begins. While some bickering ensues, Drake makes it clear that in their current form Team Freedom lacks the power to stand up to Dark Metal. Arashi reinforces they need the Ancient Treasure Z to defeat Dark Metal.
Drake heads into town and sees his subordinates, Boombox and the others. They tell him of some information about the location of the other Dark Warriors, and the defeat of the resistance by Gigaboss.
Arashi, Battalia, Analog and Apex head up towards the top of the volcano. Onigiri in particular has difficulty getting his Zoid up the steep incline. They find the top guarded by a few of the Deleters. They had been tasked to defend the point by Haxile. However, before a fight can break out, an explosion happens underneath the Rapterrix pilots and the Zoids are sent tumbling towards Freedom. The Zoids hit them, causing minor damage and knocking out the Rapterrix.
At first they think it's a small expolision, but it turns out not to be the case. Haxile and Malware appear, with the Dimomite and Pach's Rash. Haxile had set explosives under his own forces to make them fall onto the Freedom Zoids, aiming to inflict damage on them. Having the high ground, Arashi and Apex need to cover some distance to engage them, but they are both wary of the Dimomite's Sonar Spike Dark Blast. Apex engages his Wild Blast but the others do not out of caution.
As they charge, Truffle brings out reinforcements. Caulers appear and charge straight past Arashi, moving instead to pin down Battalia and Analog. Left with no other option, Apex and Arashi charge Malware and Haxile. Apex finds that his Zoid's leg was moderately injured from the sneak attack. Malware uses the chance to pin him down.
Arashi, now with no way to cover the gap finds him facing the Dimomite's Dark Blast. The attack spreads down the hill and hits all their Zoids. Haxile takes the opportunity to go even further, using the Dimepulsar at maximum output he uses its Final Sonar Spike. The wave spreads out and hits Freedom.
However, Drake shows up and defeats the Caulers at the base of the hill. Equipped with the same gear as Dark Metal he is unaffected by the Dimomite.
Both Drake and Arashi simultaneously engage their Wild Blasts. Up till now, only Arashi had seen Drake's Wild Blast, so everyone else is taken by surprise. Apex capitalises on the moment to use his Second Gear. It hits Haxile of the Dimomite, then Arashi and Drake defeat the Dimomite. Malware and Haxile are ordered to escape.
Before heading up the hill, Drake tells Arashi and the others of Bronson. With his mind made up the proceed up to the top of the volcano to retrieve the Ancient Treasure Z.
Yet when they arrive, they find nothing. Whatever was there had already been excavated and moved elsewhere. As the episode ends, the camera pans out to reveal they are standing in an unmistakeable tyrannosaurus-shape hole.
- Drake's side pocket is seen being used in this episode to store food seasoning.
