He is a large, Chinese man with a plump face shape. He has a black moustache that points out downwards and out and a tuft beard. He has a black ponytail. He wears a red long jacket with gold outlines. Starting from Orion, he changes to a cyan and yellow version of the same jacket.
He's a very eccentric coach who laughs all the time. His training menu is often very unconventional, but in spite of all his quirks, he's a very good strategist, the type who hides his real intentions because he wants the kids to figure out he strategies by themselves. He is skilled at kung-fu and sometimes plays video games during the matches.
Inazuma Eleven Ares no Tenbin
Zhao was assigned to coach Inakuni Raimon. When the first training begun the coach had strange plans for the training, but the training was intended to allow the players create their own hissatsus. For example, Iwato's training was to wash a wall, and his hissatsu later depended on his grasp of a wall.
He later got arrested, but he could still give instructions to the team in their match. Inakuni Raimon was managed to win the match against Mikage Sennou. During team meetings, when he wanted to show pictures of other teams and their plays, he would often accidentally show pictures of Natasha or other pictures in his private collection instead. Overall, even though he was a strange coach for Raimon, he still led them to success and they became the National Football Frontier winners.
Inazuma Eleven Orion no Kokuin
Zhao became the head coach for Inazuma Japan and announced all nineteen players on the team. Li Hao is still his assistant, and Kudou Michiya is the assistant coach.
During the match between Inazuma Japan and Red Bison, he told Haizaki and Hiroto, who were competing for the ball, to "do whatever they wanted". This prompted the two teammates to score a goal with Penguin The God & Devil, their new hissatsu.
