|Puyo Puyo!! Quest information|
Zoh Daimaoh (literally meaning "Evil Elephant King") is an Indian elephant who is proud of his size and thinks fairly high of himself. Although he tries to keep himself in check, his temper is dangerously short-fused, making him prone to bursting out into a fiery rage. He is unique in that he is the only character that makes the board shake when he drops Puyo (Though in some games it's just a "thump" sound). His attacks are based around the word "Gekido" which translates to "Rage", like Raging Punch and Raging Kick. He ends sentences with "-zo", which is a pun on "zou" ("elephant").
Zoh Daimaoh is the ninth opponent. He refuses to let Arle pass, asserting himself by heavily stomping on the ground.
In the English version, he is known as Elephant Lord. He asserts himself by stomping on the ground, but apologizes after Silvana informs him that he's scaring the nearby animals away.
Zoh Daimaoh is an "extra" opponent on the fifth floor. In the Ketteiban port's Rally mode, he is shown to have a fondness for birds.
In Arle's story, the heat caused by the enlarged sun irritates Zoh Daimaoh so much that his anger causes the ground under his feet to melt. Schezo later comes across the resulting pit and is startled when Zoh Daimaoh climbs out of it. He claims that Zoh Daimaoh is "a demon from the depths," which makes Zoh Daimaoh so angry that he grabs Schezo and melts into the ground again.
Zoh Daimaoh is not playable in any version of Yon, but can be seen balancing a ball in the GBC version's intro.
Zoh Daimaoh is playable in 15th Anniversary. His wish is for a future with hope. Oshare Bones calls attention to the fact that Zoh Daimaoh wears a bindi, a decoration most commonly associated with married women, on his forehead.
- Zoh Daimaoh is replaced by Spike in Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine and Heavy Mole in Kirby's Avalanche. His unique screen-shaking effect is inherited by Frankly and Dragon Breath in Mean Bean Machine, and King Dedede in Kirby's Avalanche.
