New Getter Robo (新ゲッターロボ Shin Gettā Robo), referred to simply as Getter Robo within the OVA proper, is a machine powered by the mysterious and infinite cosmic energy source known as the Getter Rays; made exclusively for combat against the Oni. This particular model serves as an amalgam of Getter Robo, Getter Robo G, and Shin Getter Robo.
The Getter Robo was created to fight against the Oni after they began to appear around Japan. After Dr. Saotome recruited three young fighters, the attacks from the Oni sent the Getter on countless adventures including one that sent the Getter back to the Heian Era where it fought against Abe no Seimei. Back in the present day, the Getter Reactor in the Getter Machine Eagle is upgraded giving the Getter more raw power. During an experiment to test the limits of the Getter, Ryoma witnesses an event that causes a history ruled by people who became one with Getters striving to get the ultimate power of the Getter Emperor. With Ryoma quitting, Hayato and Benkei are left to deal with a time traveling and monstrous Seimei on their own. Ryoma returns in time to help and has the Getter destroy Seimei. Later differing opinions among the Saotome Institute's staff cause some deep thoughts related to the Getter, with Benkei attempting to destroy it but is stopped by the others as the threat of the Oni still exist. Suddenly, the Four Heavenly Kings appear to personally destroy the Getter after the Oni and Seimei fail. The Getter fights a long battle against them with the Getter Team nearly consumed by the Getter Rays if not for snapping out in time. With the Getter's power at its fullest, it destroys most of the Four Kings with their leader crushed by the Getter Emperor. Ryoma disengages from the others to fight the Emperor and later uses his jet to create a Getter of his own to fight the other Getter robots from across the multiverse to prevent the rise of the Emperor.
