Plot

Thirteen years ago in the New Common Era (新西暦, Shinseireki) calendar, the computer controlling the newly discovered energy source called Enetron (エネトロン, Enetoron) was infected by a virus that caused it to create the evil energy being known as Messiah who wishes to take over mankind and create a world made for machines. Though sent into subspace by the scientists' sacrifice, Messiah's actions established the formation of the Energy Management Center's Special Ops Unit from three children who were caught in the crossfire, the Go-Busters, and their Buddyroids. In the present, 2012 NCE, a mysterious figure named Enter leads a group called Vaglass on incursions to gather enough Enetron to bring Messiah back. However, training for this day, the Go-Busters and their Buddyroids are deployed to combat Vaglass's Metaloids and Megazords to protect the city's Enetron from them. Later joined by Masato Jin and his Buddyroid Beet J. Stag, the Go-Busters' resolve is strengthened once they learn the true nature of their enemy and the horrors that would result should Messiah enter their world.

Go-Busters

The Go-Busters consist of three children who survived an accident 13 years ago at the Energy Management Center (エネルギー管理局, Enerugī Kanrikyoku) concerning the Vaglass virus program that went haywire on the Energy Management Center office's main computer, obtaining superhuman abilities in the process, along with side-effects. The team also consists of the Buddyroids (バディロイド, Badiroido), the Go-Busters' sentient partner robots. In Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger vs. Space Sheriff Gavan: The Movie, the Go-Busters have cameo appearances where they confront Basco Ta Jolokia as part of a special mission.

Led by the energy being known only as Messiah and its human spy Enter, Vaglass sends out its Metaloids by infecting devices with the Metavirus. When a Metaloid is defeated, its Metavirus is uploaded into a giant robot known as a Megazord. Vaglass' foot soldiers are known as the Buglers and they also have access to mass-produced giant robots called Bugzords.

Episodes
