Quoting the opening caption from Zoids
Chaotic Century exactly:
"In the far reaches of the Milky Way
, on the Planet
Zi, there exist metallic life forms
that posses superior fighting skills. These are the Zoids
by nature, Zoids have been used as the ultimate weapons
in an ongoing war between the Imperial
forces, and the Republic
ans of Planet Zi."
Essentially a Zoid is a large, sentient
being that is extremely loyal to its pilot.
