Zao, seeing the Shuigang forces flee with the Kingdom Stone
Theft of the Kingdom Stone Edit
Not soon after Lord Brevon's attack on Shuigang, Zao is met by a growing energy crisis in Shang Mu. Desperate to take serious action for the sake of his city and to better his chances for re-election, Zao hires Spade and the Red Scarves to steal the Kingdom Stone, while sending his Soldiers to pillage the Ancient Temple to distract Shang Tu. The next day, Prince Dail, who was brainwashed by Brevon into believing the Zao was his father's killer, invades Shang Mu with his Sky Battalion, sucessfully stealing the Kingdom Stone with help from Serpentine.
Negotiations in Shang Mu Edit
After Shuigang's forces escape Shang Mu with the Kingdom Stone, Zao is furious, knowing that his one chance for re-election was gone. Afterwards, he sees Lilac and her friends, who had just destroyed a wretched mechanical beast. Grateful for their heroics, he invites them to a royal feast at City Hall to 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, the following morning, Dail ans his Sky Battalion attacks the Airship while it was en route. The team manages to repel the attack, but the Airship suffered too much damage, forcing a splash down into a river.
The Seal of the Dragon Edit
Later on, Zao prepares to lead his army 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, so he and Gong can talk face-to-face. As the two argue about who should gets the Kingdom Stone's power, they prepare to wage war with each other. Suddenly, they are interrupted by loud roar, and a large Dragon flies in, prompting Gong to tell everyone to kneel before the ancient beast. After being ordered by the Dragon to work together, the two armies agreed to unite against Brevon.
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, when all hope seemed lost, 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 likely to be capable of military leadership, leading his troops to attack Shuigang, and the fact that his city is full of hazardous robots.
Zao is also 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: Outside Zao's Shopping Paradise, when Zao congratulates the team gloriously after learning that they were the ones that destroyed the Robopanther.
- 5% OFF!: Outside Zao's Shopping Paradise, when Zao offers the team a coupon for said mall, as a reward for destroying the Robopanther.
- +5 SARCASM: In Shang Mu City Hall, when Zao sarcastically tells the team that an alliance with Shang Tu was a lovely idea.
- +5 HEIGHT: At the Snowfields, after Milla digs up a rock for Zao to stand on, so he and Gong could see and talk face-to-face.
- Mayor Zao's hat has the simplified Chinese character '长' (zhǎng) on it, meaning 'chief' or 'head'.
