Jet Jaguar, a humanoid robot developed by a civilian named Goro living in the countryside of Japan, is seized by an undersea race called the Seatopians that are looking for vengeance after nuclear tests have caused devastation on their society. Using the robot, the underworld species send Jet Jaguar as a guide for their instrument of revenge: a giant, beetle-like monster called Megalon. However, Goro manages to take back control of his robot and sends him off to bring Godzilla back for help, prompting the Seatopians to ask the alien race from Space Hunter Nebula M to send the monster Gigan so that he can do battle with Godzilla.
