Gridman the Hyper Agent


A metal virus with a bladed left arm and a pincer right arm. On its chest was a red jewel that unleashed a barrier when attacked by beam weapons. After being sent into the city's cash registers, Metallus credited everyone's bank account with 100,000 yen. With their newfound wealth, everyone went on major shopping sprees, especially Daichi. However, little did the populace know, they were actually playing Takeshi's "Shopping Game of Terror". Whenever a bank account was completely drained of money, the register that scanned the bank card during the final transaction would explode, and several cash registers reached this point after people compulsively spent their money. In battle, Gridman was severely damaged when Metallus relfected his own beam fire back at him. Using the new God Tank, God Tank's cannons blasted the red jewel on Metallus, disabiling its barrier. Without the protection of the barrier, Metallus was destroyed by Gridman's Grid Beam. And Daichi left his parents with 100,000 yen bills to pay. Is My Allowance ¥100,000?

Neo Metallus

Metallus' data was upgraded into Neo Metallus with a blue jewel on its chest and able fire flashes of light from its mouth to stun Gridman. Neo Metallus took control of a computer operated backhoe at a dinosaur excavation site and caused the machine to run out of control. Drawing inspiration from dinosaurs, Ippei converted the Dragon Fortress in the Dyna Dragon to help the losing Gridman. Neo Metallus was destroyed by the Grid Beam just before the backhole could destroy the dinosaur bones. Revival! Dinosaur King
