Zako Soldiers (ザコソルジャー, Zako Sorujā) are characters that appear in Superior Defender Gundam Force.
Infantry soldiers of Dark Axis and half the size of regular robots, the Zako Soldiers make up most of the troops in Dark Axis. Despite strength in numbers, they are not too bright. Five of them host Zako Zako Hour, to usually give insight on some events. After the failed invasion of Neotopia, the Zakos are made part of Zapper Zaku's janitorial squad on the Gundamusai.
Zako Zako Hour
Starting at the end of the sixth episode of Superior Defender Gundam Force, a small segment takes place where five Zako Soldiers conduct a show for the others. During the show they review events that took place in the episode, as well as future episodes. The main hosts of the Zako Zako Hour are differentiated from the others by the microphones they carry; a yellow triangle, a cylindrical red, and a blue square. Two occasional hosts are Zakos wearing chef hats, but one carries a ladle and the other carries a whisk and is armorless. They hold their shows in the Magna-Musai, later called the Gundamusai.
Most Zakos carry a machine gun, an axe, bombs, and BaguBagu guns. Zakos also wear green armor that comes off when Zakos receive too much damage.
- Zako Soldiers look like tiny MS-06C Zaku II Early Production Types.
- Zakos are known for saying "zako" at the end of their sentences.
- During episode 33 of the series, one of the Zakos dressed in kitchen wear made friends with an entire family of Elmechu, claiming that "they're a lot of fun".
