Developed by the Republic initially for the [[Houndsoldier]], the GU-01 unit was one of the most commonly used systems. The system consisted of a pair of heavy beam cannons, each with a power generator powered by the Zoid's Power Connector Port. Additionally, the unit mounted a long-range laser sensor to improve its accuracy.

The Eye Flasher was created by the Helic Republic to enhance the reconnaissance capabilities of their Zoids. The unit consisted of two parts; a booster unit to increase speed and endurance, and a sophisticated search radar. The design was stolen by the Guylos Empire, who developed their own, identical version.

The last of the Grade-up Units, the GU-05 was initially developed for the [[Gul Tiger]]. The unit fulfils two different functions. The first is as a flight system, allowing the Zoid to fly in a helicopter-like manner. Additionally, the unit acts as an intake fan for the Gul Tiger's Charged Particle Cannon, increasing its overall power.
