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
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!
