Zoids - Head of Gil Vader and Gil Dragon Free Papercrafts DownloadHere are two Zoids papercrafts, the head of Gil Vader / Gil Dragon, the paper models are created by Ashley. The Gil Vader (Gilvader, also know as Gil Dragon) is a Wyvern-type Zoid, one of over 200 species of biomechanical lifeforms depicted by TOMY's Zoids model, toy, and media franchise. First released in 1989, the Gil Vader is depicted as the one of the most powerful Zoids in the fictional universe associated with the franchise, and the original release is one of the most sought after model kits ever produced in the range.

The Gil Vader is a large Wyvern-type Zoid. The actual animal it is based on is unclear, as it has four legs where Wyverns normally have two and appears similar to a traditional Dragon.

The Gil Vader is very large, being the third longest Zoid ever, and the widest, with a wingspan of 36.7 metres. It has a long tail that makes up nearly half its length, as well as a long neck. Its body has a unique styling found on no other Zoid, giving it an almost fantasy-like appearance opposed to the more mechanical look of other Zoids.

Despite its sheer size, the Gil Vader is the fastest flying Zoid ever created and is capable of exo-atmospheric flight. It carries a devastating array of weapons, the most powerful of which are its quad Gravity Cannons, which generate a localised high-gravity field, destroying opponents by crushing them. These are not the limit of its arsenal; the Zoid mounts a staggering array of both ranged and melee weapons, including Plasma Particle Cannons and Maser horns. The Zoid's most unusual weapons are its Beam Smashers, a quartet of energised buzz-saws mounted in the wings and back. In addition to cutting and tearing through armour, the saws can be used to project potent energy blasts.

The Gil Vader also sports a trio of Power Connector Ports on its back. These ports allow the Zoid to mount additional weapons systems and equipment, further expanding its capabilities.

In the Zoids Genesis battle story, the Gil Dragon is a powerful Zoid used by the Sky People, a group of humans who dwell in space above Zi. The Gil Dragon is capable of immense destruction, but despite this, it has not seen battle in many centuries. Although not totally unique, it appears to be a very rare Zoid, with only one known to still be functioning buried beneath Iron Rock town.

Despite only the Gil Dragon having a role in the storyline, a flashback did portray it in an epic battle with its counterpart, Gil Vader, suggesting that they are separate Zoids whom both exist in this universe.

In Zoids: Genesis, the Gil Vader can be seen in two forms. The original purple and black would be seen only in flashbacks, with the Genesis blue and white variant would be seen in the actual series, under the name Gil Dragon.

The Gil Dragon was used prior to the "God's Fury" event as a transport Zoid to enable the inhabitants of Zi to colonise the upper atmosphere, and perhaps even space itself. However, this Zoid was not used only for peaceful purposes, and at least two armies clashed, each with a Gil Dragon as their flagship. This battle is speculated to have caused the apocalyptic "God's Fury". Either way, once the apocalypse had started, the people of Zi were forced to live in the flying citadel, Sora City in order to survive. To move between this floating city and the surface, the Gil Dragon was once again employed. One of these eventually fell into disrepair and sank below the sea, ending up under the city of Katou. Another would be sealed away by the people of what would later become Iron Rock. This one was kept in working order, and was unsealed by Kotona and her sister, for the use by the anti-Digald movement, once again as a transport vessel, so that they could get to Sora City and retrieve Metal Zi bullets for use against Digald. But when they did this, Digald attacked Sora City and destroyed it. With it falling from the sky, the Gil Dragon was used to evacuate the city's citizens, but was damaged in the escape, and lost half of one wing. It was still able to land, but was grounded from that point on. Its weapons were never used other than in flashback.

It is depicted as being many, many, many times larger than the model would dictate, with the already-exaggerated Decalto Dragon being dwarfed by the Zoid's head alone, and is stated to be larger than a mountain - which is not an overstatement.

In a minor departure from the model, in the battle between two the Gil Dragons, both Gil Dragons are briefly shown to have a projectile weapon in their mouths, something the model does not contain.

The Gil Vader appears in the Game Boy Advance game Zoids: Legacy, under the name Gilvader. It is only acquirable through entering a code. The Zoid later reappeared in Zoids Saga III as a part of the regular game.

Gil Vader also shows as the true end boss in the Game Boy Color game Jashin Fukkatsu! Geno Breaker Hen. After the player defeats Professor Io's Geno Breaker, he reveals his final creation: a revived Gil Vader. This Gil Vader was built with the "genes" of his son who died in the war. After it too fails, Io chooses to remain behind as the room collapses around him. Despite these events, Io and his Gil Vader can be fought again if the player revisits that room of the tower.

After the player has beaten the game, Gil Vader can be obtained by visiting a house in Wind Colony. The player is asked for a password, which must be entered correctly in kana.

The Gil Vader made its debut in ZAC 2053 during the Helic Republic's invasion of the Dark Continent of Nyx, attacking the Madthunder division and proving near unstoppable afterwards, driving the Republic army back and crossing the ocean to bomb the capital. Committed to the war on the Dark Continent and unable to effectively counterattack, the Republic suffered heavy losses.

As further attempts to stop the Gil Vader force failed, the Republic Army tried one last desperate gambit: the Orudios, an experimental pegasus-type Zoid. Leading one Gil Vader away from the rest, its pilot managed to take both Zoids down in a suicide attack, and under false intelligence that the Republic had far more of this mysterious Zoid, Guylos halted the Gil Vaders' advance long enough for the Orudios to see mass production.

The Gil Vader continued to see service until ZAC 2056. All extant examples seem to have been wiped out in the meteor fall after a comet struck one of Zi's moons.

Zoids is a multi-media model-kit-based franchise originating from Japanese toy company Tomy (now Takara-Tomy); though now produced by various companies through licenses. The majority of the franchise is built around and focused on the various model kit series. The franchise has expanded from strictly motorized model kits to highly detailed and posable model kits, action figures and even PVC figurines. The various anime series, comics, manga books and video games all serve as tie-in media products for the franchise, to expand both consumer base and franchise recognition.
