It's gone! My one chance for re-election is gone!
Zao, seeing the Shuigang forces flee with the Kingdom Stone

Zao is the Mayor of Shang Mu, elected some time before the events of Freedom Planet. The city soon faced an energy crisis, and he felt that he had to take action the for the sake of his city and to better his chances for a re-election, even going to the extreme and hiring Spade to steal the Kingdom Stone.


Freedom PlanetEdit

Negotiations in Shang Mu Edit

The next day, Lord Brevon had commanded a brainwashed Prince Dail to send his troops to steal the Kingdom Stone from Zao, which was successful. Seeing as Lilac and her friends had destroyed a Wretched mechanical beast, he invited them to City Hall to attend a royal feast and to discuss the Kingdom Stone. Eventually, he was convinced to let them negotiate with Shuigang for said Stone, providing the team with his last Airship still intact from the attack. However, Dail attacks the Airship with his Sky Battalion, and despite being repelled, the Airship suffered too much damage, and falls out of the sky, splashing down in a river.

The Seal of the Dragon Edit

Angrily, Zao prepares to attack Shuigang, but is stopped in the Snowfields by the Shang Tu army led by General Gong, along with Carol, Milla & Torque. Before they start talking, Milla helps Zao by digging up some snow under him, which gives him a +5 HEIGHT. Then, Zao and Gong argue about who should gets the Kingdom Stone's power until they are interrupted by a loud roar. Suddenly, a large dragon flies in, prompting Gong to tell everyone to kneel before the ancient beast. After being ordered to work together, the two armies unite to stop Brevon from stealing the Kingdom Stone.

Assault on the Dreadnought Edit

The group gathers around a campfire outside a recently built tent to form a plan of attack on the Dreadnought. Zao asks how there going to recover the Kingdom Stone, Torque suggested using one of his hacking devices to disable the Dreadnought's power. With that ,the two armies began to cross the Snowfields to the Dreadnought. As Lilac rides the Holodragon, Zao provides Carol, Milla & Torque with three of his tanks, which they use to lead the charge against Brevon's Army. Later on, as Lilac and her friends board the Dreadnought as it takes off, Zao and Gong lead their armies to liberate Shuigang from Brevon's Army, eventually freeing the city from the Warlord's grip.

A New Beginning Edit

Brevon is defeated, but the Kingdom Stone was destroyed along with the doomed Dreadnought. However, it wasn't destroyed, the Stone transformed into a Crystalline Vortex that had begun to spread unlimited energy across Avalice. Zao invites the girls, Torque, Gong & Neera to a royal feast in celebration of their victory over Brevon and the end of the war. He's also relieved that the energy crisis in Shang Mu was averted and his chances for re-election were likely increased.


Zao is able to emphasize certain sentences that he says by adding a +5 based on what he says, then display it in flashing letters over his head. This is shown in the following scenes:

  • +5 GLORY: When Zao congratulates the team gloriously for destroying the Robopanther.
  • 5% OFF!: When Zao offers the team a coupon for Zao's Shopping Paradise.
  • +5 SARCASM: When the team tells Zao he should form an alliance with Shang Tu.
  • +5 HEIGHT: After Milla digs up a rock, so Zao and Gong could see eye-to-eye.

Zao is also likely to be capable of military leadership, leading soldiers to attack Shuigang and the fact that his city is full of hazardous robots.


Trivia Edit

  • Mayor Zao's hat has the simplified Chinese character '长' (zhǎng) on it, meaning 'chief' or 'head'.
