Deprived of his royal heritage, the young boy Lelouch takes on the role of the masked rebel "Zero" to rise against his homeland, the Holy Britannian Empire, in a "Black Rebellion". As the anti-Britannian sentiments among the people grow, the empire uses overwhelming force to attempt to crush all who stand against it.

As these events transpire, something else is happening in Europa. Here, the European Union (E.U.) is also facing extreme military pressure from the Holy Britannian Empire, and the defense line is gradually being pulled back. Faced with certain defeat, the E.U. forces assemble a special elite task force - "W-0" - the Wyvern unit. This special unit is led by a young girl - Layla Markal, a former Britannian aristocrat. Also in the unit as a pilot is Akito Hyuga. The unit is made up of backup forces from the E.U. as well as Japanese boys and girls, together they pilot Knightmare Frames in a totally reckless operation with a low chance for survival.
