Alice Beckham (アリス・ベッカム) is a human who works for Machine Robo Rescue as a member of the Blue Sirens, piloting the Siren Galley.

Alice is brave and inventive but has an ego the size of a planet. A 10-year old British child star of stage and film, she claims to have joined MRR to have spread her talent but takes missions seriously. She sometimes uses her acting skills to help in situations - and also to get out of Makoto's punishing physical drills. Despite Makoto spending much of his time yelling at her, Alice clearly has some attraction to him, and she is also close friends with Lin and Sayuri.

Voice actor: Yukana

Before joining MRR Alice appeared in plays and at least one film, a lurid spy thriller, helped by both of her parents were also established actors. Her reasons for joining MRR are obscure - she claims occasionally it was largely only to spread her own celebrity but Alice's subsequent career suggest it was a more altruistic choice than she makes out. She had heard of Arias "Ace" Honoh before they first met at Rescue Headquarters. Commence the Rescue Combination!! Alice was soon assigned to Blue Sirens along with Makoto and the Utadas, and was unnerved by how serious her team seemed to be. Blazing Fire Fighter! She used her acting skills to try and make Makoto look bad by feigning tears when he bawled them out for talking during drills. Blue Sirens soon attended their first call to help with a dangerous highway pile-up, and she drove Siren Galley into action. Once in the field she was more serious, and at Makoto's orders used her K-BOY to locate survivors before coordinating the Bike Robo in clearing wreckage from the crash. Despite the intervention of a Gura Gorro the rescue operation was a complete success. Straight Ahead to the Police Spirit! Alice later controlled a Bike Robo in a drill using the Supporter Robo. Along with Lin and Ken she was enthusiastic about watching Ninja Mama, believing that as actress Saeko Homura was a mother married to a rich businessman she was a model for all women. It's Party Time! Drill Robo Alice was eager to help when Sayuri enlisted MRR to find Hideki's missing cat Laura, though her plan to tempt the wayward moggy back by dressing as a giant pink cat was more suspect, and resoundingly unsuccessful. Emergency! Enter Battalion She later joined the rest of Blue Sirens in helping to evacuate those threatened by the eruption of Mount Kaga, and was later named as a back-up Robo Master for the team. Aim to be a Robo Master! Despite her mixed feelings over not getting a full-time Robo Master seat she still helped Lin and Sayuri plan a surprise party for the successful Makoto, Taiyoh, Ace and Daichi. Clash! Jet vs. Stealth Look Out! Combination EX She was less than impressed by the team being the subject of a broadcast by Charmy Sato, believing television to be beneath her. Industrial Complex Panic!


When Blue Sirens were sent to deal with a Gura Gorro raid on Sunrise Dam she was unimpressed by Koshiro Sasaki ordering her to remain on Siren Galley while the boys tried to handle the situation. Whirlwind! Gyro Robo Alice did however join Tsuyoshi, Susumu and new recruit Gyro Robo on a trip to Masayoshi Utada's wrestling gym. She quickly impressed Masayoshi and his wife with her willingness to get involved in the violence personally, somehow teaming up with Tsuyoshi to force a draw against Susumu and Carlos. She later helped clear the area when Masayoshi had a crane fall on him and the whole business attracted the attention of a Gura Gorro. Finished! Triple Tornado Her mother made an appearance at the MRR open day, though her father couldn't get out of his acting commitments. And Taiyoh is Fine! After Jay and Stealth Robo attacked the Machine AI Laboratory Alice was among the reinforcements dispatched; however by the time they arrived the Disasters had activated the Tank Robo and left the facility. The Invincible Hyper Stealth Robo! Her acting antics continued to irritate Makoto, who felt they were tired and useless. Nevertheless Sasaki placed her onboard the new Takion high-speed train as part of the Blue Sirens' security arrangements for the launch. When the train was hijacked she acted quickly, taking out the two junior goons before being overcome by their leader. Makoto was able to board and get her free before everyone discovered the bomb on the train was in fact real. Alice was lifted back off by Gyro Robo and while Susumu worked on the device she and Tsuyoshi worked on activating Siren Galley Robo, successfully diverting the Takion to a secondary track to give their team-mate time to defuse the explosives. As a result of the successful operation Makoto and Alice subsequently admitted their respect for each other had been enhanced. Arise! Siren Galley Robo


After Lin and Kai became stranded in space at the mercy of Jay and Stealth Robo, Alice joined the rest of the cadets in conspiring to get a traumatised Taiyoh launched into space in Ace's place. Taiyoh Ohzora, Into Space! While the rescue was successful the group docked with the International Space Station, finding it overran by giant killer plants. As such Alice was among the reinforcements sent up onboard Machine Commander, helping destroy the aggressive plant life with acid before following Shuttle Robo on to the Moon. Save the Space Station! On arrival and with time before they were to carry out official inspections, Alice had the cadets perform a version of The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, selflessly casting herself as lead character Princess Kaguya. When the Moonbase 13 mine was threatened by a rockslide she and Kai dithered behind and fell underground, discovering the Mars probe buried underground before the pair were distracted by Stealth Robo - who they mistook for an alien. Lunar Rescue, Begin! Back on Earth Makoto suggested Blue Sirens take the returning Charmy Sato to a Crime Awareness event that involved Alice cosplaying as Gyro Robo. However, Charmy's carelessly discarded banana peel resulted in injuries for all four members of the team. Makoto was later further infuriated when Charmy later gave Police Robo for a comedy award. MRR 24 Hours Alice and Makoto later attended a road accident - one of several simultaneous incidents caused by the Disasters' new field commander Colonel Hazard. Enter! BL Machine Robo


Alice was somehow the only member of Blue Sirens able to join the rest of MRR at Sayuri's island mansion. There she stayed out of the swimming shenanigans, instead having Kai act as her thrall. Summer Holiday! Fear Vacation The whole team were later given the chance to look around the communications airship Uranos 2, not realising it had been targeted by Hazard. Much to the annoyance of Sasaki and Makoto, Alice and the twins largely ran about doing what they liked, which meant they avoided capture when Hazard took the bridge. Alice then used her acting skills to keep Hazard busy while Susumu was able to help get the others free. Despite the arrival of BL Police Robo, Machine Commander Robo was able to send the Disasters into retreat and return the airship to its' correct service. Airship SOS! She was later one of those invited to the Space Agency as part of a service commending MRR. She later tussled with Lin over the chance to sing to the audience but everyone was saved by the arrival of BL Drill Robo. Stealth Robo's Fierce End Alice was predictably jealous when Yellow Gears were selected to help with the production of the new Ninja Mama movie. I am the Mother of Daichi Unlike the rest of the team, she refused to offer her support when Makoto landed a date with Doctor Aki Saotome, instead sulking and loudly informing everyone else that she definitely wasn't jealous. However, when Aki was trapped by a fire in her hospital Alice acted well along with the rest of the team - only for the terminally-ill girl to die moments after being evacuated, and later greatly respecting Makoto's desire to live up to Aki's final wish that he keep saving people. The Story of Makoto's First Love


Following Jay's defection to MRR, Alice worried about the possible affect his strange behaviour would have on the demanding Makoto and was quickly proven right when the newcomer joined Blue Sirens on a drill and failed to recognise even the most basic of road signs. Nevertheless the field accompanied Jay on his first sortie into the world as an MRR operative, trying to prevent him from weirding out a pregnant woman too much on a train journey. The trip was soon turned into a mission by a Gura Gorro attack, with Jay getting the lady to a hospital before using the newly-upgraded V Stealth Robo to drive off the attacker. Jay and Blue Sirens later visited the lady in hospital, with Alice battering Makoto when he expressed frustration with how the labour process didn't run efficiently enough. Birth! V Stealth Robo She later performed at Jay's welcome party, quickly showing that singing wasn't one of her talents and losing her temper when everyone seemed more interested in the food than paying attention to her. Daichi's Resolution Along with Sayuri and Lin, she was entrusted with representing MRR at the Kansai Disaster Prevention Festival, though Makoto's reminder that she was to be on her best behaviour irritated Alice. Despite Alice getting carried away and promising the huge crowd a chance to see Gear Dump Robo - who had to be manually converted by Lin and Sayuri - their appearance was a success. The trio stayed with Lin's parents overnight and discussed their reasons for joining MRR, before a mysterious object was detected landing nearby and the trio were sent to investigate. It turned out to be a Gura Gorro, on the run from Hell Island after deciding it no longer wanted to work for Disaster. After initially being fearful they soon realised it meant them no harm, and Lin even suggested that it could join MRR and she could become its' Robo Master - though she was less impressed when the Gura Gorro suggested they would be a good match due to both having round faces. However, Hazard soon arrived with BL Police Robo to recapture or destroy the Gura Gorro. It refused to go along with them and was mortally wounded defending its' new friends. The Drill Team and Gyro Robo arrived to help and were able to drive the Disasters off after Alice and Sayuri commanded Gyro Robo perform an EX Combination with the Bulldozer Robo. They and the Machine Robo then saluted the Gura Gorro as it finally expired, glad it had done something good. Salute to the Gura Gorro When the liner Poseidon collided with an oil tanker just off Rescue Headquarters, causing a freak subsonic noise that disabled the Leader Robo, Alice and the Bike Robo helped bring the fire under control. Machine Robo Out of Action! Along with Makoto, she was placed in charge of monitoring Jay's attempts to buy a bag of salt but once an increasingly surreal catalogue of events saw Jay jump into a river in search of a ticket to Ikaros 1 they grew bored and returned to base. The Greatest Errand of All Time


After Kaiser-G cut an island off from the world MRR went in to help; while the Machine Robo struggled to counter his power, Alice helped evacuate the trapped civilians onboard Siren Galley, though both Taiyoh and Jay were seemingly lost in the fight. Activate, Kaiser-G Instead the rest of the cadets had to deal with the seismic fall-out caused by Kaiser-G messing with Earth's tectonic plates before news finally got through that Taiyoh and Jay had survived. However, by then Kaiser-G had arrived in Tokyo and put the meteorite Tartarus on a collision course with Earth. A Looming Catastrophe! While MRR sortied at full strength - with Alice and Tsuyoshi even piloting Siren Galley Robo into the fight. However, they struggled to advance against Kaiser-G's gravity powers, and it took a group of cadets planting explosives inside the beast to give Taiyoh and Jay an opening to destroy him and deflect Tartarus. All Hands on Deck, Save the Planet! Despite the defeat of Kaiser-G, MRR were still needed for rescue work right up until their graduation ceremony, with Alice joining the rest of the class in giving a speech after an exhausting day. Fly, MRR!


Following graduation, Alice split her time between MRR and her acting career. After Sasaki returned to the Metropolitan Police Force she took over as the Blue Sirens instructor under Chief Miyajima, while also starring in a series of films about Machine Robo Rescue to promote the organisation, and also helming orientation and instructional videos for MRR. Sortie! Along with fellow instructors Ace and Shō she also met the new Air Leon and discussed old times with Daichi and Professor Suidōbashi. She also still clearly harboured strong feelings for Makoto even after his transfer to the Metropolitan Police Force's new Machine Robo Division, though it is unknown whether they had any sort of relationship beyond being friends.
