The series stars a boy named Ikki Tenryou, who wants to become a champion of the World Robattle Tournament. At first, Ikki is not able to afford a top-of-the-line Medabot and his parents refuse to buy one for him in fear of it having it stolen by thieves, but he is able to scrape together a small amount of money to buy an outdated model, called a KBT. With a bit of luck, his dog Salty finds a medal, which is essentially the Medabot equivalent of a soul, in the park. Ikki quickly inserts it into the KBT he purchased. This Medabot becomes his partner in the Robattles he fights. The only problem is that the Medal they found is actually a ‘rare’ Medal, stolen and then accidentally dropped by the Phantom Renegade. ‘Rare’ Medals are powerful ancient artifacts that were discovered by scientists and paleontologists. However, this is brought up later in the series.
