SYNOPSIS

The new Battle Base mobile fortress is ready and Bike Robo is training troops while Drill and Jet oversee supplying the craft. Rom and Pro Truck Racer are escorting a convoy with further munitions when they spot a fight happening on their route. Magna Rock is being pursued by Devil Rock and Double Rock so Rom and Pro Truck Racer intervene. They take him back to the Battle Base where he explained he has escaped from the Devil Cave where another prisoner is trapped. Rom, Drill, Pro Truck Racer, Jim and Leina (after an argument with Minmei) set off with him to help. Meanwhile on the Gyandlar ship Grujios tells Gadess of the three powerful Jewel People. Diondra sets off in the Varigale-X with Devil Satan 6 having deduced that Magna Rock came from Devil Mountain. Magna Rock has led Rom's party to the cave and they enter shortly before Diondra's team arrive. The mountain's defences activate, killing Gildis and Zarios while blocking off the entrance.

Rom and the rest are bound by tentacles but the unaffected Magna Rock is able to save them with the Wolf Sword. The Gyandlar meanwhile decide to make their own entrance, watched from within the mountain itself by Mask Rock. Rom's party reaches the buried stranger - Ruby Man, another of the Jewel People. Rod and Pro Truck Racer are able to free him. Leina spots the Wolf Emblem carved into the rock he was buried under. Ruby Man shows his gratitude to his rescuers by instantly healing the wounds they suffered entering the mountain. Diondra blasts an entrance, causing the cave to start collapsing. Rom summons Baikanfu to clear an exit for his party but Diondra is waiting for them. They demand Ruby Man goes with them and are about to attack when Jet arrives with reinforcements summoned by Mask Rock. The Gyandlar are forced into retreat and Gadess orders Grujios and Garudi to recover the Jewel People as soon as possible. Back at the Battle Base Rom and Mask Rock cement their alliance. Unnoticed by everyone except Magna Rock, Ruby Man goes to see the Dragon Head Emblem, which glows in his presence.


NOTES

The mobile fortress was being built last episode. The finished design is the Battle Base toy.

Escaping from the black hole has given Grujios dark mystical powers.

REVIEW

Another respectable story. Once again the building of the Battle Base gives a sense that the Machine Robo are doing something about Gadess and Ruby Man adds a mystery that - for once - isn't solved by the end of the episode.

Diondra's really slipped into repetition, though.
