Synopsis[edit | edit source]


In the ruined city Iron Eagle is still fighting against the Gurendos, destroying a tank driven by Sitappas. As the Battle Hackers approach the city he watches them warily from the top of a building as Rotary Kid scans for Gurendos signals. Back at the Grand Whale, Blue Jet, Rod Drill, Kempō Robo and Dia Man worry about the Battle Hackers but RIM again reminds them of the example set by Baikanfu. The Silver Wolves and White Thunder then mobilise. In the ruined city, some of the Battle Hackers are finding progress on the shell-hole ridden roads difficult. A huge piece of debris nearly crushes Twincam Jimmy but R. JeTan reacts quickly and destroys it in mid-air. A huge shower follows however, forcing everyone to take cover. Drill Crusher makes a passage underground for himself and Mia, who is piloting the Power Riser. Taking cover in a building, R. JeTan and Mach Blaster are found by Iron Eagle.


Akira mistakes him for a Gurendos and attacks him in the Jet Riser, only to get an axe thrown at him. R. JeTan is calmer, and explains to Iron Eagle that they are the Battle Hackers and are fighting against the Gurendos too. However, Iron Eagle shuns the idea of working with them, describing himself as a lone hunter. In Blood Country, Dylan lectures Gakurandar, Kariagen and Yasand on their ongoing failure to defeat the Battle Hackers. He tells Gakurandar that if he does not do so soon he will hand him over to the Algo Army for execution, putting him through a terrifying vision of being killed by Blue Jet and Rod Drill. Rotary Kid meanwhile realises that Iron Eagle is the sworn enemy of Geruka, one of the fiercest Gurendos warriors, who massacred his people. Iron Eagle challenges his old enemy - who is behind all the falling debris - to a fight but gets a building dropped on him. The Battle Hackers then arrive, and shatter the tower Geruka tries to drop on them. This gives Iron Eagle time to recover and he launches himself towards his foe, asking R. JeTan to make sure he destroys them both. Using Mach Blaster, he does so and Iron Eagle thanks him as the explosion engulfs them both. The Battle Hackers finds Iron Eagle's body as he dies and mourn his passing before marking his grave with his axe.
