A squad of Gurendos Sitappas led by Kariagen were the first on the scene when the human spaceship Good Luck arrived on Electronic Planet B-1. He was the first of the planet's residents to meet the humans Akira Amachi, Luke Stewart, Mia White and Patricia Longfellow, chasing them through the ship and proving impervious to their weapons. Luke was however able to briefly stop him with a foam fire extinguisher before he was driven off by the combined efforts of Pro Truck Racer and Drill Crusher. Burning Electronic Planet After the Algo Army retired to Crystal City, Kariagen and his troops continued to explore the Good Luck, which still contained Patricia and Zen Ogawa. Akira returned to the ship in the Jet Riser as part of a rescue attempt and was spotted by Kariagen, but was ultimately successful thanks to the help of Mach Blaster and the White Thunder team.Heavy Wind, Mach Blaster! He later led a huge aerial attack on the Wheelmen alongside Gakurandar, driving them towards a trap set by Sorikondar and Suji but were driven off by R. JeTan and the Battle Hackers.

JeTan, Garzack, Gattai Saurer, Akira and Luke were able to return and stop him. Crystalium Recovery Operation He later enslaved a group of Machine Robo miners, but they were freed by the combined efforts of the Battle Hackers, Winner Robo and Blue Dragons. Kariagen attempted to kill Mach Blaster but his club was destroyed by Pro Truck Racer, and the Machine Robo were able to evacuate before the self-destruct sequence the Gurendos triggered destroyed the mine. A New Machine Robo Team Appears! He helped trap Akira, Zen, Twincam Jimmy and Rotary Kid in a huge scrapyard as part of Gakurandar's attempt to draw R. JeTan out alone, and was part of the attack on the Battle Hackers leader when he arrived. However, the trapped team escaped and turned the tables on the Gurendos. Muddy Duel He had a rare success commanding the troops protecting Yasand's electromagnetic missile launch site, holding the Battle Hackers long enough for the projectiles to begin firing on Crystal City. Target: Grand Whale However the attempts to stop a convoy of Battle Hackers returning a device to restore the fallen Machine Robo to the Grand Whale failed, with Kariagen and Suji both being held in combat by Drill Crusher. Let's Do It! He was then placed in charge of a huge Gurendos army which pinned down the Battle Hackers in the desert and came close to wearing them down. However, Blue Jet and Eagle Robo were able to evade Yasand and deliver crucial ammunition supplies to the unit, allowing the force to be destroyed. Kariagen attempted to escape once again but was confronted by R. JeTan. Along with his remaining Sitappas he attempted to combat the Battle Hackers leader by firing his headpiece projectile; however R. JeTan destroyed it in mid-air and the blast killed Kariagen.
