Zone of the Enders, commonly referred to by the acronym Z.O.E., is a franchise created by Hideo Kojima, owned by the video game publisher Konami, and expanded on by the animation studio Sunrise. The original Zone of the Enders is a game created for the launch of the Sony PlayStation 2, which has so far spawned a single PS2 sequel, a Game Boy Advance side-story, an OVA movie and a twenty-six episode television anime series. Anubis was one of the most powerful Type C Orbital Frames featured throughout the Zone of the Enders series. It is Nohman's trademark Orbital Frame and was designed by his father, Rikoah Hardiman. True to its name, Anubis has a dog-like anthropomorphic appearance and its physical appearance is very similar to that of Jehuty, but with some key differences. Its legs are reverse-jointed, with a set of six wings and most notably, a long prehensile tail. The wings on its back are actually huge vector traps.
