From the fiery depths of the Earth...
Cy-Kill and the Renegades planned an assault on UNECOM in Switzerland. As Screw Head dug a path for them under the Alps, however, the Renegades came across a hidden civilization of Mole Men living under the Earth. Seizing the opportunity, Cy-Kill approached King Talpidae and told tall tales of the surface peoples' plan to attack the Mole Men. Cy-Kill's speech gave him an army to attack UNECOM facilities worldwide. During one of the attacks, Leader-1 and his command team surrendered peacefully in order to find out why the Mole Men were so aggressive. Brought before King Talpidae, Leader-1 and Cy-Kill both gave convincing stories, and so the king ordered them to fight to the death in order to determine who was telling the truth. Cy-Kill made private arrangements with Lady Scaptonyx of the Mole People to secretly help the Renegades win in exchange for their assistance overthrowing the king. Despite her aid, however, Cy-Kill betrayed Scaptonyx's treachery to Talpidae, and so both she and the Guardians were thrown into the Monopole Mines. Unfortunately for Cy-Kill, his enemies made an alliance and broke free of the mines, revealing his deceitfulness to the King. The Renegades fled Prototheria, and the Mole Men returned to a state of peace with the surface world.

- Challenge of the GoBots Season 2 was a virtual continuation of the original show related by Vector Prime (from his multiversal perspective) and Cy-Kill (who lived it).
- In realities where this story aired on television, it premiered on November 3, 1986.
- This episode title was first released in an Ask Vector Prime post on December 21, 2015.
- Despite being a "fight to the death", the Renegades did not finish off the Guardians, and King Talpidae ordered them to work in the mines instead of executed. The king sort of oversold the stakes, didn't he?
