* AdaptedOut: The original Battle Story featured a third nation, the Zenebas Empire. In the anime, the Guylos Empire shares many of Zenebas' traits, making the anime version of Guylos both a CompositeCharacter and AdaptationalNiceGuy. Ironically, in Battle Story the Guylos Empire eventually conquered the Zenebas Empire and absorbed it into their own nation.

''Zoids: Chaotic Century'' is the first of the several ''Franchise/{{Zoids}}'' anime, adapted from the [[Manga/ZoidsChaoticCentury manga]] of the same name. Known simply as ''Zoids'' in Japan, it was [[MarketBasedTitle marketed as]] ''Zoids: Chaotic Century'' in English-language markets. Western fans occasionally use ''Chaotic Century'' to refer to the first half of the series, and ''Guardian Force'' to refer to the post-TimeSkip second half, though this distinction was never officially made in Japan. It was played on Creator/CartoonNetwork in North America, but [[ScrewedByTheNetwork moved to an early-morning timeslot]] before it finished airing, and eventually canceled entirely without ever showing the last four episodes of the series, which were delayed due to production issues. The [[FanNickname Final Four]] were eventually aired -- on {{Toonami}} no less -- as a [[NetworkToTheRescue gift to the fans]].

* {{Bowdlerize}}: Several scenes were cut from the English dub.
** From Chaotic Century: Moonbay tells Fiona to answer the door when they're taking a shower, she gets out without bothering to put clothes on and opens the door to see Van. He runs away blushing with her chasing him.
** From Guardian Force: In the episode where Van reunites with Irvine, he's sneaking aboard the Whale King but is caught by a group of guys drinking; also the captain grabs Fiona and points a gun to her head.
*** When Van and Fiona go to Lumiere Island, Reese shows Fiona a vision where zombies ambush her, Van comes to her rescue but is shot and lies in a pool of blood. Fiona tries to wake him but then she sees her blood-covered hands and screams.
*** Reese's flashback to her childhood is cut where Nichalo is shot while trying to protect her.
*** In the beginning of the season when Van's village is attacked, the defeated pilot meets up with Hiltz and he's thrown off a cliff.
*** All of this is averted in the Chilean Spanish dub, since it was dubbed from the Japanese version, rather from the English version.
