Fiction[edit | edit source]
Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos cartoon[edit | edit source]
Cronos' feudal society meant response to the threat of the Gyandlar was initially piecemeal, with the aliens' various schemes largely faced by the travellers Rom Stol, Blue Jet, Rod Drill, Triple Jim and Leina Stol as they found them, with only temporary allies who were reluctant to leave their home towns. This changed after the destruction of Bethbianco; the travellers escorted the city's refugees to Emerald City and found the first co-ordinated response to the Gyandlar. Kendō Robo, Karate Robo and Jūdō Robo were in command of a large force of Battle Tribe and Jet Tribe soldiers, including the powerful Land Commander 5 battle suit. The Machine Robo were happy to accept the travellers, and jointly they made Emerald City the focal point for resistance against the Gyandlar. While the city itself was devastated by Gadess after several Gyandlar raids were thwarted the area remained a hub for operations and was the location for the construction and commissioning of the Battle Base, which took over as headquarters. As the conflict went more powerful allies joined the Machine Robo, including Pro Truck Racer, the Rock People, Min, the Jewel Men and the Fossil Men, while the Battle Base was central to the hunt for the four elements of the Hyribead, storing those they found. After Gadess landed the Gyandlar mothership on Cronos for his final assault the Machine Robo army was able to respond with a large co-ordinated assault on the ship, eventually aiding Rom and his friends in defeating them by keeping the rank-and-file Gyandlar busy. After Gadess was vanquished the majority of the troops joined Rom, Leina, Jet, Drill and Jim in leaving Cronos and crossing a dimensional gateway that took them to Electronic Planet B-1
Well, that didn't work.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- The use of the Machine Robo faction insignia is even sparser than the little-used GoBots equivalents, being used in a single scene transition in "Underneath a Burning Sky" and Tough Trailer's stickers (which were not carried over to the cartoon).
