Zip is Captain Zero's second 'harbour switcher'.
- His design is loosely based on the Moran Fleet of NYC waters from the 1920's.
- According to sources, Zip is voiced by British actor John Baddely, who also provided the distinguishable voice of Top Hat.
- In Salty's Lighthouse he turns good and he was voiced by Ian James Corlett.
- In the Japanese version he was voiced by Masashi Ebara who also voiced Top Hat. It has to be noted, though, that Zip's deep Japanese voice would have been more suited for Warrior.
