''Chaotic Century'''s story follows Van Flyheight, a teenager who spends much of his time {{Hover Board}}ing around the local desert ruins for kicks. One day, he's pursued by a local bandit and forced to flee into said ruins, where he discovers a set of PeopleJars in a previously inaccessible part of the structure. In one, he finds a [[RobotBuddy small and unusually intelligent dinosaur-like zoid]]; from another emerges [[GirlInABox a young girl]], who proves to have [[MysteriousWaif no memory of her past]] but experiences [[OracularUrchin occasional visions of a mysterious nature]]. Van promptly names the girl Fiona (which she called herself when initially asked her name, but seemed to forget as soon as she said it) and the zoid Zeke (after his father's Command Wolf). Zeke proves to have mysterious powers of his own when he instantly revives an old, abandoned Shield Liger, allowing Van to fight off the bandit and return home.

Between being pursued by bandits after Zeke, a valuable "organoid", and Fiona's visions of a "Zoid Eve", Van [[JumpedAtTheCall Jumps At The Call]] and decides to go adventuring and see if he can find any answers about his new friends. Along the way he meets [[TheLancer tough guy]] Irvine and [[WrenchWench mechanically-inclined]] transporter Moonbay, gets involved in the ongoing war between the [[TheFederation Helic Republic]] and [[TheEmpire Guylos Empire]], and gains a [[TheRival rival]] in Raven, a warrior for the Empire with an organoid of his own. Before things can be put to rest, Van must learn about Fiona's past and how it relates to Zeke and the SealedEvilInACan that the Empire's TreacherousAdvisor, Gunter Prozen, is trying to harness.

''Guardian Force'' picks up after a TimeSkip of several years, during which the Empire and the Republic have worked together to form an elite military group: the eponymous Guardian Force, dedicated to ending conflicts before they can become full-blown wars. Van, naturally, has joined on behalf of the Helic Republic; his Imperial counterpart is Thomas Schubaltz, who becomes his partner. The two of them, eventually joined by their friends from ''Chaotic Century'', quickly uncover a plot that threatens the entire world. This time, the mystery revolves around Zoid Eve, and the emergence of several new villains, each with the own organoid. The final conflict, when it occurs, takes place over ''eight full episodes'' without running into EndingFatigue, saturating the series with nearly toxic levels of awesome.

* FullPotentialUpgrade: The organoids allow their owners to unlock this, though in slightly differing ways. Zeke can link Zoids with their pilots allowing them to work in complete synchronisation, Shadow can kick a zoid's power output into overdrive for a limited time, Specula can rework and optimise a zoid's physical body, and Ambient can alter and even fuse zoid cores.
