Side Lancer was one of the Machine Robo on patrol with Rom Stol and other key troops in the ruins of Emerald City; the group were nearly trapped by Ashura and the Gyandlar Rocks. The mission had been leaked by someone from inside the Battle Base, with Heli Transer the prime suspect. When the latter called a squad of Machine Robo to the Dragon Waterfall, where Diondra was searching for the Lion Shield, Double Jet was among those taken by Rom - even though Battle Gyror warned them of a trap. Battle Gyror proved himself to actually be the spy, being a duplicate created and operated by the disembodied Grujios; Double Jet shot the duplicate before it could attack Leina Stol and Pro Truck Racer. He then helped Baikanfu find the Lion Shield. Raise Your Gun, Heli Transer!

He was among the Machine Robo summoned by Rom to debate what to do about the Gyandlar's new weather machine, opposing the decision to use the shady Wheelmen. Full Power, Wheelmen! After the Gyandlar were defeated, he remained on Cronos, watching two shuttles full of explorers set off for the dimensional gateway near Cronos. The Final Battle of Cronos
