The Fire Phoenix is a type of Zoids, a race of mechanical lifeforms from the fictional Zoids universe. The Fire Phoenix played a major role in Zoids Fuzors as the Liger Zero's fusion partner from episode 4 to episode 14 when it was destroyed by Blake's Gairyuki.
The Fire Phoenix resembles the phoenix of mythology. It was manufactured by scientists of the Helic Republic as the Liger Zero's fusion partner.
A strange Blox Zoid, this was developed as the last armor for the Liger Zero. However, the budget for the project was very tight, being that many Blox Zoids were being developed at the time. The Phoenix became armor pieces that could not be mass-produced. A new aerial Blox Zoid comes into the scene, and was taking the Zoid world by storm, the Buster Eagle. The Fire Phoenix armor was meant to give the Liger Zero flight capability, it was not far from making it into a flying Blox Zoid. After all, the company responsible for the Buster Eagle was the rival of those who designed the Fire Phoenix. The Fire Phoenix was then further developed into an aerial Blox Zoid.
Though not that heavily armed, it is faster than than the Buster Eagle by Mach .9 and has better maneuverability. Unlike other aerial Zoids it can also hover. The Fire Phoenix is also fairly armed. Unfortunately, the Dual 180mm Cannons cannot be used until it fuses with the Liger Zero.
The Fire Phoenix is covered in fairly thick armor, roughly as strong as that of the König Wolf.
Media Appearances Edit
The Fire Phoenix made it's debut in episode 3 of Zoids Fuzors. It began as a wild Zoid posing a threat to the Savage Hammer team. Its speed caused sonic booms that can blow away the Buster Fury. After R.D. and the Liger Zero saved it from being destroyed, it then accepted the Liger Zero as a fusion partner. The Fire Phoenix breaks apart into armor that attaches onto the Liger Zero and gives it flight capabilities. It was then destroyed in episode 14. The armor of the Fire Phoenix is strong but was inconsistent, in the first couple episodes the Fire Phoenix takes damage to an extent that there is holes in the wing but in Episode 11 a blade strike form a Blade Liger with high voltage laser blades does almost no damage and loses its blade, but not without the Liger Zero losing its flight ability.
Video Games Edit
