Original Title in Japanese: Beat X
The Triumph in Battle and
the Ultimate in Bravery
As Earth continues to suffer from the throes of pollution and destruction of the environment that has been brought down by mankind, robotology has rapidly progressed and through the genius mind of a young scientist named Kotaro Takamiya, robots known as Roboticks are created with the capability of being operated by the human mind and will.
Amidst all the chaos, an empire known as the Empire of Machines secretly schemes to take over the world. They have succeeded in creating supreme Roboticks known as BT (Beat) which are robots that consist of the following elements:
1) having a BRAIN to think on their own
2) functioning on human BLOOD
3) artistry and supremacy in BATTLE
Upon receiving a transfusion of human blood, BT makes a pledge of absolute obedience to its one and only blood donor. However, the latest BT creation named Raffaello that originated from a mysterious element provided by the Machine Emperor becomes unruly and uncontrollable.
Kotaro rejoices when, after 5 years of separation, he reunites with his brother, Teppei. However, this happiness is short lived as Kotaro is kidnapped by the Empire of Machines to lead their team of scientists to find a way to control Raffaello. Teppei immediately pursues the kidnappers but is attacked by Metal Face, one of the army troupe leaders for the Empire of Machines, and his BT. Teppei puts up a frantic fight and just as he is about to be crushed, a miracle occurs. The blood loss from Teppeis body during his courageous battle has resurrected the legendary BT known as X from the junk yard. With the help of BT X, Teppei succeeds to escape from Metal Faces troupe.
With BT X at his side, Teppei attacks the fortress of the Empire of Machines to rescue his brother who is captured and is held somewhere inside.
