Zoanoroids (ゾアノロイド) are the the main threat of Rockman.EXE Beast. They are NetNavis that were corrupted by the Beast Factor, which made them loyal to one of the Cyber Beasts. Zoanoroids can be identified with their Navi symbols being replaced by the symbols of either Glaga or Falzer and their ability to Beast Out. They don't have operators and fight to destroy humans, along with followers of the other Cyber Beast in the war between Glaga and Falzer. Most of them come from Beyondard and are addressed with the prefix “Zoano”. For example, the Zoanoroid SparkMan.EXE would be Zoano SparkMan.EXE. Some Zoanoroids don't have regular world counterparts.
The Zoanoroids invaded Netto Hikari's world in an attempt to capture Trill.EXE for their respective leaders. As Netto's world lacks the Beast Factor and a constant Dimensional Area, Zoano Punk.EXE forced Makoto Aoki to create CopyBots for the Zoanoroids, allowing them to attack in the real world. They are later fought in Beyondard. After the defeat of the Super Cybeast, the Beast Factor was wiped out from Beyondard, putting an end to the Zoanoroids.
Due to their defeat, Zoanoroids did not appear in Beast+, although they were mentioned when Netto initially believed Zero.EXE to be a Zoanoroid, but immediately corrected himself, knowing it couldn't be possible.

Minor Zoanoroids in Falzar’s Army
Zoano KendoMan invades Earth with several other Zoanoroids, and fights against Princess Pride and Yuriko Ozono. He is about to finish off C.F. KnightMan before C.F. NeedleMan stops him with her Needle Cannon, and the two finish him off with ShotGun Battle Chips.
After Nenji Rokushakudama and Jasmine stop Zoano NapalmMan, Zoano Medi throws several Medi Capsules at C.F. Medi, who is guarded by C.F. NapalmMan. As Jasmine tries to wake Nenji up, Zoano Medi confronts her as Jasmine watches on in confusion. She is presumably defeated, as Nenji and Jasmine later arrive in Dentech City unhurt.
Minor Zoanoroids in Glaga’s Army
Zoano NapalmMan.EXE fights against Nenji Rokushakudama and Jasmine, exchanging blasts with C.F. NapalmMan before C.F. Medi uses her Medi Capsule to stun him. He is then blasted by C.F. NapalmMan and deleted.
Zoano BlizzardMan.EXE was pursuing Dekao Oyama around in front of Maha Ichiban, but Dark Miyabi throws exploding spikes under BlizzardMan’s skis. Miyabi tells Dekao to go back into the restaurant as he confront BlizzardMan.
- Unlike the Darkloids and the Asteroids, the Zoanoroids have no surviving members after their defeat. The Darkloids are survived by BubbleMan And the Asteroids are survived by Asteroid NapalmMan.EXE, respectively.
- The Zoanoroids appear to be based off of the Zoanoids, a race of evil monsters from the series Guyver. Plus, a Zoanoroid is a Netnavi that can mutate its appearance while Zoanoids are humans that can transform into monsters.
