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; after all, the BSNP wouldn't let him do that!
