Episode Summary

EDIT
Prototype
AIRED:
Hot on the Dark One's trail, the Super Robot suddenly changes its course to a barren planet stripped of its resources, leaving the Monkey Team baffled. They wind up in a strange laboratory where they encounter a brilliant scientist who has been reduced to nothing but a brain - and claims that he is one of the Super Robot's creators. It turns out that it was the prototype of a long line of fighting robots and the most recent one, the Prometheus Five, that has relentlessly attacking the scientist and his creations. The team sets out to help, but the Super Robot won't seem to let them attack this new robot. In fact, the two actually communicate! And through this, the Hyperforce - and the Robot - learns that there is more to the story than the scientist has told them...moreless

  • While chasing the Skeleton King Worm, the Hyperforce find themselves on a strange planet, where they learn the origins of the Super Robot.

    This was a neat episode, because we got to know a little more about the Super Robot's history.



    And I especially enjoyed the choice of Scott Menville as Promethus 5, AKA Slingshot. He is one of my favorite voice actors, because he's very good at it.



    I really hope we get to see more of him in the future...
  • Dontcha just love the Super Robot?

    Well this episode was good if u really really really wanted to know were the super robot came from. Im still confused on the whole " we just woke up in it part" im still trying to come up with how the alchemist got a hold of the super robot and put the in it.**racking my brain** ( this might take a while) But its kinda cool they did shed a little light on the robot. But there still is a lot more flashback episodes they have to do before we everything about the monkey team's past and chiro too.moreless
  • Sheding some light on the Super Robot's origin.

    This episode was quiet interesting. The evil Dr. Maezono, a disembodied brain, explains the origin of the Super Robot. So it was 3 scientists who created it. Dr. Maezono, Dr. Takeouchi, and a scientist that looks very similar to the alchemist who becomes the Skeleton King.



    The teams role on this episode was seemingly generic as the action seemed to go towards Prometheus Five.



    This episode was action packed from the get go, as Prometheus Five was battling one of Dr. Maezono's maniac mechanical monsters. I do hate the ending, however. I was rooting, cheering, hoping that Prometheus Five would end Maezono's lingering life. I guess this means we haven't seen the last Maezono. I do wonder what made him evil. Was Maezono just a run of the mill crazed mad scientist? I guess we'll find out eventually.



    Over all, this was a great episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In this episode it is said the the monkeys simply woke up in the Robot one day with no recollection of where it came from. But in the flashback during Secret of the Sixth Monkey it shows them standing around the Robot with Mandarin

    • One of the robots that Professor Maezono sends after the Hyperforce is the same one the Super Robot Frog team had in "Brothers in Arms" except it was a different color. This may mean they are also connected to Maezono, and possibly, the Alchemist.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Chiro: (to Prometheus Five) You know, you and the Super Robot make a great team.
      Prometheus Five: My prototype has a message for you.
      Chiro: What is it?
      Prometheus Five: He says that he's already part of a great team.

    • Prometheus Five: (to Dr. Maezono) My prototype wants answers, and so do I! You helped create us! Dr. Takeuchi was supposed to be your friend! We were your legacy, and you've destroyed it all! Well, now it's time for the big payback, Professor!
      Dr. Maezono: Not so fast, "son"... (flies away) I might be too quick for you!
      Prometheus Five: (sends an energy blast at Maezono, but the Super Robot stops it and Maezono escapes) No! He deserved it! You should've let me destroy him!

    • Gibson: (after saving Sprx from one of Maezono's robots) As you would say, Sprx...I've got your back!
      Sprx-77: (annoyed) Hmmph...thanks...

    • Prometheus Five: (to Chiro, about Dr. Maezono) Let's see...were you talking to a human being with a face? Or a disgusting heap of human brain on a plate?
      Otto: It was a brain heap, for sure.

    • Prometheus Five: (to monkeys) I tried to establish a connection with you, but it didn't work. You robot monekys are just so...basic.

    • Antauri: (to Dr. Maezono) You say you are...one of the creators?
      Dr. Maezono: Yes. Three brilliant minds worked together to create the ultimate fighting robot. The Super Robot was our first success. Or at least it would've benn...if you hadn't stolen it!
      Sprx-77: Stolen?! Wait a micron! We didn't take him!
      Chiro: I found the Super Robot abandoned on Shuggazoom, okay?
      Otto: Yeah, we just woke up in him!

    • Dr. Maezono: (about the Super Robot) The prototype...is has returned!
      Chiro: You mean you know ehere the Super Robot came from?
      Mr. Maezono: Indeed. It came from here, in this very laboratory...and I was one of its creators.

    • Dr. Maezono: (looking through optic sensors) Robotic monkeys? I can scarely believe my optic interface!
      Gibson: I concur!

    • (The Super Robot saves the Prometheus Five and it flies away)
      Nova: (annoyed) You're welcome...

    • Otto: (about seeing the other similar-looking robot) It's like looking into a mirror...
      Sprx-77: Yeah...a creepy, freaky funhouse mirror!

  • NOTES (8)

    • The third unnamed scientist is obvisouly the Alchemist who created the monkeys. This explains why the Robot disappeared when he did, and why the monkeys woke up inside of the Robot.

    • Scott Menville, who was the voice of Prometheus Five, also does the voice of Robin in Teen Titans, which is another show that Greg Cipes stars in as Beast Boy. This meant that two voice actors from Teen Titans appeared in this episode.

    • The Prometheus Five wants revenge on Dr. Maezono for Dr. Takeuchi's death, and goes after Maezono when he escapes.

    • Apparently, the monkeys know nothing about how they acquired the Super Robot. They claim to have just been awoken inside of it with no idea of how it got there.

    • According to the Prometheus Five, the Super Robot knows all about the Hyperforce, where it came from, and what has happened. Apparently, it is also very much content with being a part of the Monkey Team.

    • The Super Robot and all of its other models were created by three scientists, Dr. Maezono, Dr. Takeuchi, and an unnamed third scientist. Dr. Maezono attempted to use the Prometheus Five for his own unknown purposes, though he was stopped by Dr. Takeuchi. Unfortunately, Takeuchi was sacrificed in the process.

    • Chiro nicknames the Prometheus Five "Slingshot" for his ability to launch himself at his targets by creating slingshot-like projections of energy from his hands.

    • The Super Robot is the prototype of the Prometheus project. The most recent is the Prometheus Five.
