Submarine Robo and the Aqua Robo were completed after MRR had already become operational, with Chief Bitou, his daughter and inventor Professor Tōru Suidōbashi overseeing the final underwater trials before activation from the Cube 1 submersible, only for an accident to sever one of the cables connecting the vessel to its' support ship and preventing their recovery. Yellow Gears were dispatched to help and - as the best underwater operative on the team - Shō was sent down in second submersible. He was able to complete the activation of the Submarine Team, who was then linked to the cadet's K-BOY in time to fend off an opportunistic Gura Gorro attack. He was then able to enter Hyper Mode and rescue the Cube. I am Submarine Robo The newcomer was assigned to Yellow Gears but preferred not to join the other Leader Robo in the base's hangar and instead float around at sea. The cadets at least got to water-ski off the back of the Aqua Robo before the Submarine Team then set off alone to rescue a whale trapped on a freak iceberg, only relenting and letting Shō come along when it became clear the cadet was going to drown. Once they arrived they were ambushed and frozen by a Gura Gorro, but saved by the arrival of the Drill Team. This gave Shō time to order Submarine Robo into Hyper Mode, and he promptly trounced the attacker. The incident proved the value of teamwork to Submarine Robo, and he accepted Shō as his Robo Master.

After Taiyoh and Jet Robo were knocked out of orbit by Stealth Robo battling near Ikaros 1 in Earth orbit, the Submarine Team joined the response. The massed number of MRR Machine Robo were able to persuade Stealth Robo to keep his distance, allowing Taiyoh and the Jet Team to be recovered. Good Luck Taiyoh His antics were later chosen as one of the funniest moments and and one of the best plays, honoured by Charmy Sato at the Who's the MVP? award show. MRR 24 Hours The Submarine Team were dispatched to deal with an oil pipeline accident but once it was under control they realised it was an act of intentional sabotage performed by Colonel Hazard. Enter! BL Machine Robo When a trio of Disaster-made typhoons threatened a shipping vessel, the seas were too tumultuous for even Submarine Robo to go in, necessitating the dispatch of Machine Commander Robo. The Strongest Combination! Machine Commander Robo V Along with the other Leader Robo, Drill Robo was disabled by a freak resonance when the liner Poseidon's engine was damaged by a collision with an oil tanker near Rescue Headquarters. The cadets swung into action with just the Supporter Robo while the Professor worked on the problem, with the Aqua Robo working to support the ships. Machine Robo Out of Action!


After Makoto and Jay disappeared near Hell Island, the Submarine Team were launched to search for them. The Secret of the Disasters As Kaiser-G's plans reached fruition and he threatened the island of Kanameshima all of MRR were scrambled to try and stop him. However, they were unable to do much against Kaiser-G, with even Hyper Submarine Robo being helpless. Activate, Kaiser-G! Jet and V Stealth continued to attack but were again easily defeated, and knocked into a volcano. The rest of MRR were forced to withdraw and deal with the catastrophes caused by Kaiser-G triggering numerous other volcanos on the Pacific ring of fire. Kaiser-G was able to move on to Tokyo, setting the meteorite Tartarus on a collision course with Earth. A Looming Catastrophe! All of MRR scrambled to fight him but Hyper Submarine Robo again found himself unable to combat Kaiser-G, who was eventually defeated by the joint efforts of the cadets Hyper Shuttle Robo, V Stealth Robo and Machine Commander Robo. All Hands on Deck, Save the Planet! The defeat of Kaiser-G and the Disasters didn't end MRR's work, however, and even on the day of their graduation the team recover a large submarine, with the Aqua Robo helping attach cables before Hyper Submarine Robo's strength was used as key factor in the success of the operation. Fly, MRR!

Following the founding of International Hyper Rescue, the Submarine Team remained at Rescue Headquarters, where Shō was now the Yellow Gears instructor. Sortie!
