Several waves of Zoids Trading Cards have been sporadically released since 1999. None of the cards have been carried over into English.

Releases[edit | edit source]

Original Battle Card Game[edit | edit source]

Gordos card from Original Battle Card Game

Released in 1999 alongside the Chaotic Century anime, this was intended as a trading card game similar to Pokémon, where players could face each other using their collection of cards against one another. Each player had a base with so many hit points; loosing when this count reached zero. From there, Zoids could be used to defend against the enemy using a series of Custom cards (weapons and equipment) as well as Event Cards (which would have an effect on the current status of battle) to improve their chances.

Pilots in these games could be fickle. Some were incapable of being used with any other Zoid (such as Wolff Muroa, who was strictly to pilot the Berserk Fury). Most had a "favorite machine" and would improve the statistics of it if they were given the Zoid of their choice. Pilots were a mix of battle story characters, new characters, and characters that we've all come to know from the Zoids Chaotic Century anime.


The game featured a good number of new Zoids or Zoids previously seen as mere customs in the battle story. Most used diaroma style images. Most Zoids had only a single "special" ability which in all actuality, were their only real 'weapons'. Some had additional powers, while almost every Zoid had a standard shooting and melee strength. They were all individually limited in their own way, and were only able to move on certain areas of the map. Each Zoid could have up to two "movement capabilities" such as sand, forest, or mountains. Many that were speculated to be a certain type had unexpected terrain preferences. Within their terrain they could move up to a specified number of spaces, sometimes more if the situation was right.

Two "Starter" packs were released, one for Republic and one for Empire Zoids. Each came with one "Base" card, 10 Zoids cards, 17 "Custom" cards, and 12 "Event" cards. Also released were several "Booster" sets, providing additional cards for a players' collection. The Booster packs contained a few of each type of card, except for Bases (which were only contained in certain booster sets), and also contained "Pilot" cards that bolstered the stats of their Zoid's.

Specula from the TC

Trading Collection Cards[edit | edit source]

Also released with the Zoids: Chaotic Century anime, the Trading Collection Cards did not go along with any sort of a battle game; simply focusing on the New Japanese Release and the anime. Some of the cards contained info on NJR models, while others had pictures from the anime and information about characters or Zoids in the show. Some of the mainstream character cards featured new artwork of themselves and their Zoids or Organoids.

Zoids Scramble[edit | edit source]

Geno Hydra from Zoids Scramble

Released much later than the first two waves, first coinciding with the Zoids: Fuzors anime, the Zoids Scramble cards were also used for a trading card game. Three volumes of Scramble cards were released, with the first containing mostly Zoids from Fuzors, the second one mixed througout the series', and the third containing a lot of Zoids: Genesis cards. Each volume contained several Zoids, each with their own stats (the Fuzors Zoids having noticeably higher stats when fused), "Pilot" cards, and "Command" cards.

Interestingly, Zeru and Juno (from the Zoids Saga games), were featured as piolots in Volume 1, and Trinity Liger and Geno Hydra (also from Zoids Saga) appeared in Volume 3.


Zoids Card Colosseum[edit | edit source]

This set of cards was released for use with the Zoids Card Colosseum arcade game. Each Volume contained several different Zoids, mostly ones that starred in the different anime series', pilots, and another sort of special card.

Promotional Cards[edit | edit source]

Several special cards were released with each set, such as Van Flyheight's Blade Liger, Zeke, and Gojulas Giga PKB.
