Emperor Muge Zarbados and his Empire of Death decide that their next conquest will be the faraway planet of Earth. Muge becomes even more fearsome because of Shapiro Keats, a power-hungry Earthling-turned-traitor. It's up to a team of four soldier task-force (Shinobu Fujiwara, Sara Yuki, Masato Shikibu and Ryo Shiba) to pilot the four Beast Mecha (Eagle Fighter, Land Cougar, Land Liger, and Big Moth [a mammoth mecha]), which can combine into the giant mech Dancougar.
The series takes place in 2107, 200 years after the first series. Peace on Earth has yet to be reached not from major world wars, but from small-scale ware conflicting all over the globe. But a large mysterious robot appears like God to "protect the weak" and end conflict with its existence to remain a mystery. Neither enemy or ally to humanity, the robot only stands for the planet's protection while retaliating against an enemy of unknown power. And its name is Dancougar Nova.
