Synopsis[edit | edit source]
After setting a meteorite cluster on collision course for Earth, Kaiser-G creates a huge storm over Tokyo, collapsing the Tokyo Tower and causing mass panic. At the hangar, Professor Suidōbashi and his team work frantically to get Jet Robo and V Stealth Robo back functional. Taiyoh and Jay are summoned to the control room for an alert, trusting the Professor will fix their Machine Robo as MRR mobilise to stop Kaiser-G. The instructors all want to join them, but Chief Bitou tells them their responsibility is to act as backup from control. MRR arrive, even switching the transports to robot modes, but Kaiser-G is able to counter their attempt to form a ZONE. He crushes Drill Robo, who Sayuri frantically tries to free with Gear Dump Robo. Kaiser-G then sets his sights on a news helicopter; Gyro Robo is able to draw his attention but is blasted out of the sky and has to be caught by Siren Galley Robo. Wing Liner Robo prepares to attack but is blasted with a bolt of lightning. Above Earth, Ikaros 1 picks up the meteorites on its' radar - and realising the cluster is towing the huge Tartarus. Drill Robo manages to get free from the rubble and Daichi activates his Hyper Mode, with Susumu doing the same with Gyro Robo. They combine their powers to open a hole in Kaiser-G's forcefield for Machine Commander Robo to enter but he is knocked down easily trying to reach the gravity device, and the begins pushing everyone else into the ground for good measure.
Tartarus draws closer to Earth, but Chief Bitou believes Kaiser-G has underestimated the strength that comes from Machine Robo Rescue's teamwork. Even better news comes when Professor Suidōbashi announces he has found Kaiser-G's weak-spot, though he notes they only have around ten minutes until Tartarus is impossible to stop. The cadets and Machine Robo rally for one final attack. However, Kaiser-G is undamaged by Machine Commander Robo and grabs him in his jaws, but still ejects Fire Robo, Police Robo and Submarine Robo, who all have their Hyper Modes activated. However, their combined attack still does nothing more than annoy Kaiser-G, but it has allowed Taiyoh, Jay, Ace, Daichi, Susumu, Makoto and Shō show chance to get onboard. They are able to avoid his internal defences apart from a final trap - which both Taiyoh and Jay instinctively anticipate. They push their friends aside but are ejected from the device towards the street below - and caught in the nick of time by Shuttle Robo, with V Stealth Robo also joining the battle. Inside the other Robo Masters set their explosives and get out of the device just as it blows - being caught by Gyro Robo using a giant net. They watch as Kaiser-G explodes and crashes into the river, but the gravity controller is still active and Tartarus is still coming. Shuttle Robo switches to Hyper Mode while V Stealth Robo combines with Machine Commander Robo. The combined powers of Hyper Shuttle Robo and Machine Commander Robo V destroy the device and send Tartarus away into space, and the Professor declares the Earth saved. However, as everyone celebrates Kaiser-G reappears above Earth and grabs Hyper Shuttle Robo. In order to stop it all starting over again, Taiyoh orders Jay to fire on them. He does so, and the Shuttle Team separate to dodge the blast, with Shuttle Robo entering Maachine Commander Robo V. Taiyoh takes over control and pummels Kaiser-G, who smashes into Tartarus and explodes as the meteorite spins off into space. Machine Robo Commander declares the rescue complete.
