(Story*)


The series centers around Medabots, artificially intelligent robots, whose purpose is to serve humans. Later in the series, Medabots are found to be actually thousands of years old; remnants of an ancient civilization who called themselves Medalorians. The Medalorians were obsessed with war, and to become more effective warriors they fastened medal armor to themselves. However, their wars decimated the civilization, and the survivors coded their memories onto hexagonial pieces of medal. These, "Medals", cloned and mass produced by the Medabot Corporation (a corporation founded by Dr. Aki), are the Medabot equivolent brain and soul. The original medals, referred to as "rare" medals, are kept in storage because >of the extreme power they have. AI, see Ai. ...


The series begins with a ten year old boy named Ikki Tenrio, who wants to become a champion of the World Robattle Tournament. However, Ikki is unable to afford a Medabot, and his parents refuse to buy him one. However, he manages to get enough money to buy an outdated model, and, with a bit of luck, he finds a medal in a river. Ikki quickly inserts it into the Medabot he purchased, and names him Metabee. The only problem is that the Medal he found gives Metabee a severe attitude problem (a problem rarely seen in a Medabot), which leads Ikki to think he is defective. However, this theory is proven wrong later in the series, as it is revealed that Metabee actually has a "rare" medal.


The rare medals, as mentioned earlier, were kept secret by the Medabot Corporation, as very little was known about them. However, a Medabot with a rare medal would be able to call upon an attack called the "Medaforce". In the manga, the Medaforce is a form of medal mind control, as explained by Dr. Aki in the third graphic novel of Medabots. In the cartoon however, it is shown as a way of increasing the power of the Medabot's special skill. Metabee supercharged with the power of the Medaforce. ...


Another important aspect is the story of Henry, the store clerk who sold Ikki Metabee. We find out that he is, quite obviously, Phantom Renegade. A running joke of series was Henry almost telling everyone he is The Phantom, with no one ever discovering this fact. We are then introduced to Space Medafighter X, who is another one of Henry's secret identities, the number one medafighter in Japan. Later, during the World Finals, he rarely shows up to the fights, instead sending substitutes and working behind the scenes. This being because he supposedly started The Ten Days of Darkness, which occurred eight years before the events in the series during the World Robattle Cup when Henry fought as Hikaru Agata with the original Metabee ( however, the medal was different). The Medabots went on a rampage during the Ten Days of Darkness, which stopped when Hikaru Agata was forced to kill his Medabot by destroying his medal.


At the end of the second season, it is revealed that Victor (a medafighter for Team Kenya and Warbandit's owner) was helping Dr. Meta-evil to get medals during the tournament. During the finals, Metabee and Warbandit continue to fight, even with their partners lost and their bodies damaged. It is during this event that Dr. Meta-evil starts his plan using Metabee and Warbandit's medals; trapping them both in a dream. However, Ikki manages to get Metabee to wake up from the dream, while the other medabots, free now, help Metabee to fight against Dr. Meta-evil.

Medarot Damashii

Medarot Damashii, a sequel to the original series, follows Kam Kamazaki, a twelve year old boy who has designed one of the most dangerous medabots in the entire story, called Kilobots. These medabots have no feelings and can break the rules in order to win a fight. In the first episode, Ikki loses a Robattle against one when it cheats and reloads. But he soon meets Nae, a Medabot mechanic who gives Ikki new medaparts in order to defeat the kilobot. As the series passes, the audience is introduced to new characters, such as Ginkai, the "bad" boy who in the future episodes becomes good. However, supporting characters such as Henry, Rokusho, Koji, Rintaro, Karin, Dr. Aki and the Chick Salesman does not appear in the sequel.

  • Ikki Tenryou (天領イッキ Tenryō Ikki), is a lively and easygoing boy, although a bit timid. At first Ikki is unable to afford a Medabot. But after finding a medal in a river, he manages to buy an outdated model, which he names Metabee. However, the medal he found appears to be defective, as Metabee is stubborn and disobedient. In spite of this, a strong bond grows between them after several robattles. Though Ikki is not a full-fledged Medafighter, he gradually matures through the Robattles he engages in. He voiced by Samantha Reynolds in the English translation.
  • Metabee (whose name is a portmanteau of Metal Beetle) is a Medabot belonging to Ikki Tenryou. Metabee is an outdated beetle type Medabot, specialising in revolver tactics. He possesses a rare medal that allows him to access the Medaforce. Metabee is known to be quite aggressive and stubborn, and often causes problems due to his headstrong personality. He is often disobedient to his owner Ikki, but he shares a close bond with him, and so Ikki trusts him deeply. In the English version he is voiced by Joe Motiki.

Also, a Medabot named Baketsumaru (an advanced KWG model) and his Medafighter, a teenage girl, are well informed about Metabee's awakening.[citation needed]

Medabots - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2663 words)
Medabots, frequently misspelled as Metabots, and known in Japan as Medarot (メダロット), is a video game published by Natsume, about battling robots.
He finds a Medal, which is the Medabot's soul, floating in a river, and inserts it into the robot he purchased.
Brass (or Sailor-Multi) is a Medabot belonging to Erika.
Medabots Reviews at Animelab.com (1463 words)
Set in the 22nd century, "Medabots" tells the story of a world where everyone has a Medabot - commercially-available robots powered by objects called Medals, used for competetive combat known as "Robattling." Now, with this basic description, it is indeed clearly routed in the "creature collecting/training/fighting" genre, along with Pokemon and the like.
Well, the dub of "Medabots" takes the comedy that already exists in it, and actually managed to inject WIT into the show, with very cleverly written scripts which are often the superior of the Japanese dialogue.
Medabots is VERY Angelic Layer, with the same poor animation and plot, but really, it's difficult in making an original plot with these kind of elements.
