Tamura Naoto, a new detective in Central City was killed by a Bioron agent in the line of duty. Dr. Kenzou Igarashi, a man whose experiments had been responsible for the Bioron syndicate's existence, brought the man back to life as a robot detective, Jiban. In the finale, Bioron destroyed Jiban's base and transformed Mad Garbo into false Jiban. Jiban defeated his duplicate and ultimately Kibanoid, the true form of Bioron's leader Doctor Kiba. The victorious Jiban then learned that Igarashi Mayumi, little girl that knew his secret, had been his missing younger sister all along.

Jiban/Naoto Tamura: A human revived as a cyborg by Dr. Igarashi to fight Bioron. He is capable of reverting to his human identity at will. Holds the rank of police commissioner (as a robot) and detective (as human). Jiban's programming enables him to follow these directives:

1. Arrest criminals in any circumstance without a warrant.
2. Punish criminals on his own judgment if they happen to be members of Bioron.
3. Use lethal force depending on the circumstances.

Eventually, Bioron's Mad Garbo and Rhinonoid killed Jiban,who then returned to life again as Perfect Jiban (basically the same previous design but with a blue-colored metal body and three new weapons).
