GaoGaiGar Final Ep. 7: The Superhero Apocalypse


Abel orders Pisa Sol to release her powers, and the latter fuses with the fake sun into the regeneration machine, her true form. The light bathes the Sol Masters and restores their strength as well as the anti-matter cubes. Pillnus and Pia Decem easily overpower J and Renais and restrict them in chains. Guy says that he’ll destroy them no matter how many times they regenerate. He dodges another Sol Wave and uses his Gadget Tool to form the Bolting Driver. Galeon fires a Genesic Bolt from his mouth and Guy uses it to create a large shockwave that destroys the anti-matter cubes every time they regenerate. Mamoru frantically tries to heal Mikoto and begs her to hang on. Palparepa disrupts Guy’s attack and calls him a demon. He tries to stab Guy but the latter’s Genesic Armor shatters his blade. Guy reconfigures the Gadget Tool into the Will Knife and clashes with Palparepa. Palparepa traps Guy in a cloud of Poison Aura and Abel orders the remaining Sol Masters to fuse with their anti-matter cubes, gaining giant mechanical forms. Guy disperses the cloud with Protect Shade and finds himself surrounded. Palparepa taunts Guy saying that he can’t accomplish anything by himself, but his spiel is interrupted by Taiga saying that Guy is not alone, heralding the arrival of the 3G fleet. Thanks to Papillon they managed to overcome the Paras particles and revive the Brave Robot Corps. Taiga tells the Sol Masters that unlike them they have tested their courage and will now fight to the last breath. Abel has the Sol Wave fired and 3G counters it with Takehaya‘s Reflector Beam. HyoRyu and EnRyu tackle P-Vater and Guy moves in to help but gets attacked by Palparepa PLUS. Guy uses his Straight Drill to shatter Palparepa’s arm then smashes his Spiral Drill into his chest. Abel orders the Sol Masters to retreat down to Earth and the Brave Robot Corps gives chase. Volfogg starts getting suspicious but suddenly senses Polturn nearby. Polturn uses his swords to disable Takehaya‘s Reflector Beam and gets attacked by Volfogg. He dodges Volfogg’s Silver Moon blades but gets caught by his Jet Wrapper. Volfogg tries to pull Polturn in but the latter drags him down to Earth. Papillon finally realizes that the Sol Masters are trying to divide their power and Swan spots Pei La Cain approaching them. Taiga tries to recall the Brave Robot Corps but Mamoru barges into the bridge with the unconscious Mikoto and tells them that he’ll handle Cain. On J-Der‘s bridge, Pillnus taunts Renais and the latter remembers firing at BioNet members when they told her that her body will cease to function if she disobeys them. J takes the words out of her mouth and yells that he’d rather die fighting and take the Sol Masters down with him. Abel tells Pillnus and Pia Decem to stop playing around and Pillnus sets J and Renais on fire before leaving. Renais frantically tries to get her cooling coat to open but can’t because of the chains. As the two resign themselves to their fate, J tells Renais that a phoenix is resurrected in flames and the two hold hands. Renais’ G-Stone goes into hyper mode and revives J’s J-Jewel, allowing them to break free and power up. They quickly cancel the freeze program on Tomoro and dislodge Pia Decem PIT from J-Der before fusing into King J-Der once again.

As the situation on the real Earth gets worse, Ai, Isamu and Hana continue to pray for Mamoru and 3G’s success. Guy and Palparepa fall into Shinjuku. The Japanese dragons fall near Taj Mahal with P-Vater. The Chinese dragons follow Ptulone into Sankyuu, China. Mic chases Percurio to London. Poltrun drops down to the docks of Vladivostok, Russia with Volfogg. The French dragons reach Athens with Puranus, and King J-Der and Pia Decem pit splash down into Los Glaciares National Park in Argentina. Abel orders Pia Decem to perform Giga Fusion, transforming Pia Decem PIT into the colossal robot Pia Decem PEAK. J attacks Pia Decem head on but the latter blocks his kick and swings him back into the water. J manages to blast Pia Decem’s fighters and score a direct hit on his body but relents when Kaidou screams out in pain. Renais thinks it’s hopeless and Abel taunts J about losing his J-Quath. Pia Decem charges in and starts pummeling J. Puranus blocks the French dragons’ attack and easily overwhelms them. This angers them and raises their SympaRate, allowing them to combine into TenRyuJin. The other dragon twins likewise combine into ChoRyuJin and GekiRyuJin while Mic changes into Boom robo mode. Palparepa desperately tries to block a Broken Magnum and is too busy to notice Guy coming down on him with a heel drop. He uses his Doping Cylinders to power up into a stronger form and tells Guy he has no right to exist. Guy retorts that the right to exist is earned through one’s struggles and fires up Hell and Heaven to counter Palparepa’s God and Devil. The unconscious Mikoto calls out to Guy.


This episode starts with a nice display of Genesic GaoGaiGar’s powers followed by a slow build-up to the final showdown between 3G and the Sol Masters. J managed to get back on his feet with Renais’ help but he’s still a disadvantage against the larger Pia Decem Pit. Palparepa also pulls out another trick and changes to a stronger form to even the odds with Guy. All this with the Sol Masters having the added perk of infinite regeneration thanks to Pisa Sol means the Brave Robot Corps have a big fight on their hands. Once again the fate of the universe is in 3G’s hands, and hopefully their courage will allow them to pull off another victory.
