It's Guardian vs. Renegade, and the winner might surprise you.
With the Renegades unexpectedly having to face the entire Guardian fleet, Cy-Kill fought on as best he could. Pressing Roguestar as an advantage, the Thruster fleet engaged the Command Centers at near parity. Leader-1 took a risky step to improve their odds by leading individual Guardians out from their ships to provide additional firepower. Cy-Kill was eventually forced to take the same step, leading to a climactic conflict between the two leaders. In the end, both armies were decimated, but the remaining active troops were Guardians. However, the Master Renegade and Bladez had installed a failsafe in the Command Center fleet, allowing them to remote control the ships and fire on the remaining Guardians, knocking them out.
Meanwhile, back on GoBotron, the Robo Rebels were still on the run from Creepy. Tail Pipe sacrificed himself to save Super Couper and buy the others time to escape. They regrouped at the Guardian Academy where they found Major Mo had been left behind. he vowed to help his students rescue Tail Pipe and defeat the Master Renegade.
