Synopsis[edit | edit source]


Leader-1 sends Turbo and Hans-Cuff to investigate the countryside around Silvermoon Mine for any clues about the Renegades' plan. Turbo takes Nick with him to search the mountainous terrain but they find nothing before nightfall. Nick tells Turbo about ghost stories but the GoBot has never read any. They were interrupted when Turbo picked up a signal, but before he could attack whatever it was lurches out of the darkness and critically damages the Guardian. Badly damaged, Turbo orders Nick to shut him down and go for help.

Nick wanders for an hour before the monster found him again but at the last moment an old man grabbed the boy and took him to safety. The grizzled man introduced himself as Grogan, and explained he'd been a hillbilly since the age of 6, and has spent the past 70 years living in the woods with his mule Matilda. He has already seen 3 monsters in the wood, and leads Nick back towards town so he can get help.

At the Command Center, Leader-1 quickly recognises Nick's descriptions of the monsters as evidence that Cy-Kill has allied with the Enemy Invaders, monsters from the three moons of GoBotron. Ordering Scooter to contact the Council of Guardians on GoBotron, Leader-1 sets off to rescue Turbo with Heat Seeker and Hans-Cuff. However as they arrive Crasher and the Enemy Invaders have also found Turbo, and battle is joined. Initially the powerful monsters have the upper hand until the rest of the Guardian Earth Force arrive, while Grogan and Matilda turned up and drop a rock on Crasher. The Renegades retreat, but Leader-1 was worried by this new alliance. The one between the Renegades and Enemy Invaders, that is, not the one between the Guardians and Grogan.
