Now it's Yasand's turn to have a scheme.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Dylan chews out Gakurandar and Suji for their continued failure against the Battle Hackers. Yasand believes he has a plan that will work, winning the approval of Dylan - and infuriating Gakurandar and Suji. He leads a huge force of Sitappa and Teppodaman troopers into battle, planning to start the assault with a line of pyramid bases located in a wintery area of Electronic Planet B-1 away from Crystal City and steal their secret electromagnetic missiles. The Battle Hackers are camping nearby with their human friends; Akira uses the Jet Riser's gun to light the fire, nearly incinerating Zen in the process. The Winner Robo are nearby, though they find driving at speed on ice difficult. However, after they all crash into the snow Testarossa Robo spots the fighting at the pyramids from afar. Back at the camp Patricia tells her friends that she grew up wanting to become a singer, but her parents wouldn't allow it - leading to her running away and ending up on the Good Luck; her story makes Zen and Mia miss Earth too. Their reverie is interrupted when R. JeTan receives a signal from the Winner Robo of Gurendos activity.
Yasand's troops continue their attack on the pyramids while the Winner Robo spot the huge missiles being taken. R. JeTan, Mach Blaster, Rotary Kid and Akira's Jet Riser set off to investigate, with Drill Crusher following underground. They soon confirm the presence of the missiles; Akira impetuously dives in to attack but is hit by the defences - Yasand is waiting for them, and sends the Devil Satan 6 in to attack. They combine, and their attack freezes the Battle Hackers' weapons. Yasand battles Mach Blaster and Akira until the former changes into gun mode for R. JeTan. The shot knocks Devil Satan 6 into his components but the craft carrying the missiles are already underway under the command of Shibumidas. However, the rest of the Battle Hackers arrive, having fashioned skis from logs. Pro Truck Racer shoots down one of the Gurendos ships, Luke shoots down another using the Battle Riser but the last two craft - and Yasand - escape.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Yasand appears to catch cold in the snow.
- The song Patricia sings is "Ato Ichi-byō", the show's end credits theme.
- There's a slightly creepy cutaway of R. JeTan's head.
- Jetter Robo is mysterious absent, presumably so he couldn't fly over and check out the pyramids himself.
