Buggy Wolf makes the mistake of befriending the dippy anime girl.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Yasand launches a second missile at Crystal City, causing even more casualties. Big Shuttle Robo brings some of the wounded back to the base, Buggy Wolf among them, where Patricia tries to see if she can help. Another missile launches and Akira once again attempts to stop it with the Jet Riser; this time he is able to analyse it and shoot out its' propulsion so it harmlessly falls from the sky, which impresses R. JeTan. Meanwhile Patricia is greatly upset about the fighting. Buggy Wolf, out of action with a damaged arm, takes her out to a delightful part of Electronic Planet B-1 to take her mind off things, giving her a vibrant pink flower to show her there is still beauty in the world. Meanwhile Dylan tells Yasand he is impressed by the operation's success as the Gurendos prepare for their next assault. RIM relays the grim prognosis of their situation to the Algo Army, and orders the evacuation of their headquarters.
However Yasand's troops attack the evacuating Machine Robo and fire another missile, with New Shinkansen Robo and Big Shuttle Robo among the casualties as they try to transport their comrades to safety. However the Battle Hackers and Algo Army then attack Yasand's convoy, Drill Crusher and Rod Drill having tunnelled into their midst. R. JeTan, the Jet Riser, Pro Truck Racer and the Winner Robo soon start carving their way through the Gurendos troops. Nevertheless Yasand fires another three missiles at Crystal City; Mach Blaster shoots down one but the other two are destroyed by Rockgiran, who then protects the Battle Hacker from the particles of the exploded warheads. Rotary Kid is less lucky and falls out of the sky, while the particles head down towards the fight between the Battle Hackers and the Gurendos. Buggy Wolf appears in time to knock R. JeTan out of their path only to be struck himself, while the Jet Riser is also hit and becomes useless. Enraged, the Battle Hackers and Blue Dragons close in on Garukandar's command tank. They attempt to fight but Mask Rock smashes one of the vehicle's tracks and R. JeTan uses Mach Blaster to destroy it. Gakurandar, Yasand and Suji retreat defeated once again, getting dropped onto the mountains after Gattai Saurer shoots down the Teppodamans trying to carry them clear. Meanwhile Patricia mourns the loss of Buggy Wolf.
