Zitz

From Rare Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

One of the three playable characters in the Battletoads franchise. Zitz, aka Morgan Ziegler, is the leader of the Battletoads; a tactical genius and economical fighter, who prefers fighting methods that allow him to conserve his strength. Zitz is slightly taller and more heavily built than Rash, and is the smartest of the three toads. Zitz is always wearing black gauntlets that contain video communication hardware, spiked black kneepads, and a black belt with the Battletoads insignia on the buckle. His profile on the Battletoads Arcade states that he stands at 6'8". As with the other Battletoads, Zitz's skin color has changed several times over the course of the series. He started off as a medium shade of green like the other Toads, and appeared as such on the original box art. In the game itself, though, his skin was colored tan to distinguish him from Player 1's default choice of Rash. His color was later changed to a lighter green with hints of yellow, olive green in Battletoads in Battlemaniacs, and finally presented as a cool blueish-green color in Battletoads & Double Dragon and Battletoads Arcade. Zitz has appeared in every game of the series, but not always as a playable. He served as Player 2's character in the original Battletoads game, and was the solo protagonist in Battletoads (Game Boy). But due to a surprise attack that knocked him unconscious, he was taken prisoner prior to the start of Battletoads in Battlemaniacs and thus was not playable in the game. He returned in Battletoads & Double Dragon and Battletoads Arcade as readily select-able in both games.
