These robots can be controlled by boy-girl pairs, the male is called the stamen, and the female one is called the pistil.
These pilots are artificially created, but they have a very short lifespan. A team of these pilots is given to experimental Squad 13 of Plantation 13, and amongst them, one is named Hiro, who is a former pilot that can’t synchronize with his partner because of that, both of them fail to pass the training. Hiro then sees Zero Two, who is an elite Franxx pilot that has klaxosaur blood within her, and she is called the “Partner Killer”.
Rumors have it that she killed her two partners but still, a third partner is allotted to her.
