Alien Kyrgyz, in addition to the "three powers": alien detection glasses, psychic ability, and a powered suit

named "Silver." The brothers make a contact with robot engineer Kenichiro Kurenai and entreat him to

built the giant robot "Red Baron." He accepts their request with one condition. Kenichiro's younger brother
