Zodiac Time Beast (十二支刻獣じゅうにしこくじゅう Jūnishi Kokujū) is a race unique to the Gear Chronicle clan. Zodiac Time Beast units consist of the twelve Zodiac Time Beasts, a group of Gear Chronicle units based on the Chinese zodiac, and their followers and subordinates who theme themselves after one of those Zodiac Time Beasts. The Zodiac Time Beast race is unique in that, unlike most other races in the game, Zodiac Time Beasts have a myriad number of support cards and effects, causing them to function similarly to a sub-clan.

Along with the standard abilities of the Gear Chronicle clan, Zodiac Time Beast decks heavily focus on using the bind zone, with many Zodiac Time Beasts able to bind cards as a cost or as part of an effect and others benefiting from having cards in the bind zone; the related Idea-drone series also assists in binding Zodiac Time Beasts. Zodiac Time Beasts also specialize in calling Zodiac Time Beasts from the deck, especially Zodiac Time Beasts of specific grades.

Background

The twelve Zodiac Time Beasts originate from the "twelve factors that rule over time" inside the gear-shaped backpack of Deus Ex Machina, Demiurge. After Demiurge was sealed away, the twelve factors were separated and monitored by the researchers who sealed it. This is considered to be the beginning of the Zodiac Time Beasts. Each of the twelve Zodiac Time Beast positions is passed on from predecessor to successor. The twelve Zodiac Time Beasts of the present time are:

In Cardfight!! Vanguard G: Stride Gate, Ryuzu Myoujin plotted to use the power of the twelve Zodiac Time Beasts to open the Stride Gate, draining all of Cray's fortune and transferring it to Earth, which would then become a paradise. To do so, Ryuzu summoned several of the Zodiac Time Beasts from Cray to Earth with Depend Cards, imprisoning them and bringing them under his control. Kouji Ibuki sent Chrono several Depend Cards of his own to keep them out of Ryuzu's control, and Chrono awakened them into several Zodiac Time Beasts. As the season progressed, however, Ryuzu eventually secured all of the Zodiac Time Beasts and began his plan to open the Stride Gate, but he was defeated by Chrono. Chrono gained ownership of all the Zodiac Time Beasts, and he began using a Zodiac Time Beast deck in later seasons.

In the background story, the Zodiac Time Beasts were being captured by Chronofang Tiger, who was being controlled by Interdimensional Dragon, Bind Time Dragon. Bind Time Dragon desired to awaken Deus Ex Machina, Demiurge, and while he succeeded, Demiurge was defeated by Chronodragon Gear Groovy, the combination of Chronojet Dragon and Chrono Dran.
