Ziggy (ジギー Jigī), better known as the former Demon King (魔王 Maō) was a Machine of Granbell who adopted Shiki and raised him as his own grandchild.


Ziggy has a silver face vaguely reminiscent of a skeleton. He is made completely from metal and has black, metallic pieces covering his neck and surrounding his face. He wears a gold crown with a dark purple jewel in the middle and he has large, gold horns protruding from either side of the crown. He adorns himself with a large, red cape with gold trimmings with two gold skeletons on each shoulder. This cape covers his metallic body armor which has a beast with an open mouth and silver teeth adorned on the front.[1]


Ziggy is a kind and caring robot, and seems to possess tremendous knowledge on a great many things, even those that lie outside Granbell Kingdom. He seems to have deeply loved Shiki as his grandson, having brought him along to Granbell Kingdom and teaching him everything he knew about the universe, the meaning of friendship and how friends were the most important thing a person can have.[1] His caring nature is shown even further, as seen with him requesting the other robots to manipulate Shiki into leaving the island knowing that their batteries wouldn't last long and they would deactivate soon, leaving him all alone on the planet.[2]


Ziggy was built along with many other Robots for the Granbell Kingdom back when it had many visitors. After the park was abandoned a century ago, he and the rest of the robots were left to fend for themselves. Sometime after Granbell was abandoned, Ziggy built the Edens Zero along with four androids known as The Four Star Shines, with the goal of finding Mother.

During his travels, Ziggy met Elise Crimson the captain of a fleet of space pirates and became her benefactor. When close to finding Mother, Ziggy discovered an orphaned boy named Shiki, which caused him to give up his search for mother, return to Granbell and raise Shiki as his grandson and teach him his signature ether gear: Gravity Ether Gear.[3] Sometime before he broke down, Ziggy gave the Edens Zero to Elsie and requested her to give the ship to Shiki when it was time for him to leave Granbell. Sometime later, Ziggy had built E.M.Pino and left her on Norma for unknown reasons.

One day, while Ziggy, Shiki, and Michael were watching shooting stars, Ziggy told Shiki of the importance of finding friends and traveling the universe.[1] Eventually, his body broke down and he ceased to function sometime afterward, leaving Shiki to be looked after by the Granbell robots.Distraught, Shiki tried to repair Ziggy to save him, only to learn there was nothing he could do to save his grandfather. He passed before he could teach Shiki The Gravity Comet. Before he ceased to function, however, he requested the other robots make Shiki leave them behind as he knew he would be all alone once their batteries died.[2]
