Plot

A giant robot is found wreaking havoc in Japan. Coinciding with the chaos, a seemingly benevolent race of aliens from the planet Mysteroid arrive to offer their assistance and friendship.

The Mysterians ask for a small section of land and the right to breed with Earth women to repopulate their planet. The humans are offended by the request and declare war, discovering that it was the Mysterians that sent the killer robot in the first place.
