In 1945, Dr. Ryuuichirou Koga designed Metalder as a top-secret weapon for the Japanese Imperial Army for use in the Pacific War, modeling it after his late son, Second Sub-lieutenant Tatsuo Koga . However, the pacific Dr. Koga put Metalder to sleep in the Silver Carcass base and left for America to work for NASA. During the 42 years, Dr. Koga's colleague Major Muraki, became the evil GodNeros, ruler of Neros Empire. Godneros sends out his massive armies to kill Dr. Ryuuchirou who learned of their organization and returned to Japan to activate Metalder.

Ryuuchirou desperately tries to activate his android creation, who he named Tsurugi Ryuusei, but the android is unable to understand what he should do. In order to give Ryuusei a "purpose," Ryuuchiro runs out of the Silver Carcass base, allowing Nero's troops to kill him. Suddenly seeing his creator die, Ryuusei becomes shocked, and soon is kicked around and beaten by Nero's troops. After being tossed around Ryuusei becomes fueled with rage, evoking the conversion to his 'true' form, the Android known as Metalder! After a brief battle with Coolgin, which he loses, Ryuusei goes onward, meeting Mai Oogi who befriends him along the way. Ryuusei will not stop fighting until he has avenged his creator's death and defeated Godneros' empire!

Metalder: A android built by Dr. Koga at the end of WW2. Normally in human form as Ryuusei Tsurugi, whose looks and personality are directly modeled after that of Dr. Koga's son Tatsuo. Whenever his energies reach a peak from rage, with the cry "Anger!", he transforms into his metallic form. Like Tatsuo, loves music and plays saxophone from time to time. His Reflection Circuit gave him the same feelings as humans and to tell right and wrong. Powered by 'supergravitational energy', his killing techniques include "Super Oscillation Laser Arm chop", "G-Kick", "Metal Tornado" spinning kick, "Head Crash" ram, "Plasma Punch", "Metal Bomber" punching attack from above, And "1000 Hand Punch".
