Gades in Machine Robo: Revenge of Cronos episode 1, "Rising Storm! The Fighting Style of Justice!"

The spaceship of the Gandora materialises above the peaceful planet of Cronos. They are looking for Kirai Stol, who has the secret of the Hyribead - a mythical energy source needed to power the Gandora's plans of universal conquest. The Gandora leader, Gades, dispatches Grujious and the Devil Satan 6 team to get the information from him. They land and attack a Cronos Clan settlement, finding Kirai's daughter Reina and her valet Triple Jim. The pair escape, not realizing that the Gandora are tracking them to find Kirai's location. Kirai is overseeing the final training of his son Rom and their friends Blue Jet and Rod Drill at his cavern when he suddenly collapses, before receiving a vision of Reina and Jim under pursuit. He dispatches Rom, Jet and Drill to help his daughter. The pair are caught on a mountain pass by the Gandora troops and cornered before they arrive, however.

Three of the Devil Satan 6 are about to kill Jim and Reina when Rom, Jet and Drill appear. Rom uses the Sky Space Heart Fist technique taught by his father to help drive the Gandora off. However, Grujious has already left to find Kirai with the rest of the Devil Satan 6. Kirai puts up a good fight until Gades uses his powers to intervene from orbit. Realizing he is lost and must protect the Hyribead, he destroys the cavern around him and uses the last of his energy to send the Wolf Sword to his son. Rom is able to use it to summon the larger robot body Blade Dragon and fight Grujious. However, the Devil Satan 6 merge to form a single huge robot, matching Blade Dragon. In response Rom uses the Wolf Sword to summon up an even larger body - Vikung-Fu - and forces the Gandora into retreat.
