Choujinki Metalder
"Wind, Clouds, Sun! I ask you from the bottom of my heart- why was I born in the world like this?! (風よ、雲よ、太陽よ!心あらば教えてくれ。なぜ、この世に生まれて来たのだ?! Kaze yo, kumo yo, taiyō yo! Kokoro areba kotaetekure. Naze, kono sekai ni umaretekitanoda?!"
―Metalder after his first fight with Neros.[src]

Metalder (メタルダー Metarudā?) is a "Choujinki", a powerful war android built by Dr. Koga at the end of World War II originally as a countermeasure against the Americans. He was hidden in a secret base of the Japanese Imperial Army until Dr. Koga activated him years later to fight the Neros Empire. His human guise, Ryusei Tsurugi (剣 流星 Tsurugi Ryūsei?), is directly modeled after that of Dr. Koga's son Tatsuo of whom he lost during the war. Whenever his energies reach a peak from rage, with the cry "Ikaru!" (怒る!? "Anger!"), he transforms into his metallic form. Like Tatsuo, he loves music and plays the saxophone from time to time. His Reflection Circuit gave him the same feelings as humans and a sense of right and wrong. Powered by 'super-gravitational energy', his killing techniques include "Laser Arm", "G-Kick", "Metal Tornado" spinning kick, "Head Crash" ram, "Plasma Punch", "Metal Bomber" punching attack from above, And "1000 Hand Punch". At the end of the series he defeats God Neros but in the process, his super-gravitational energy is greatly damaged, as a result whenever he moves longer, he will explode and the world will be destroyed by its impact. With Kita's help, Metalder is spared from destruction, but at the cost of his human form and his ability to fight as a Choujinki.
