The Ultra Megaforce Rangers work together to fight the Robot. After the quick fight, the Rangers fire the Ultra Strike attack to defeat Rotox. Back in the underwater base, Metal Alice prepares for the next attack. At Ernie's Brainfreeze, the guys discuss the recent battle and Robo Knight's words. Back at the underwater base, Metal Alice creates an upgraded version of Rotox based on the data from the fight.

The Rangers fire the Megaforce Blaster, but their attack is immediately blocked. Robo Knight arrives to the scene. Metal Alice introduces herself to Robo Knight. She tries to convince Robo Knight that the humans are the true reason that the Earth is polluted. Metal Alice and Rotox leave the scene. Robo Knight also leaves the scene and remembers Metal Alice's words. The Ultra Megaforce Rangers find Metal Alice and Rotox. The Rangers try to attack Rotox, but he is too strong for them
