For their part, the [[Autobot]]s have witnessed the Commandos' assault, and [[Optimus Prime (RID)|Optimus Prime]] sends patrols to a number of other dams. At the [[Sherman Dam]] near the Los Bogus desert resort, [[Koji Onishi]] and his friend [[Doctor Bridget]] are going for by themselves on a tour of the dam. Meanwhile, [[X-Brawn]] is patrolling the dam as well when he encountered Scourge, [[Mega-Octane]], [[Armorhide (RID)|Armorhide]] and [[Rollbar (RID)|Rollbar]]. He engages the Decepticons in battle, only to be thrown by Scourge into the water, where he finds can't swim to the surface. The [[Predacon]]s watch all this from a distance. When the Decepticons start to plant their [[pulsar bomb]]s, Koji alerts Optimus, who sends in [[Side Burn (RID)|Side Burn]] and [[Prowl (RID)|Prowl]]. Meanwhile, Sky-Byte orders his disguised Predacons to attack the Decepticon group, who are still planting bombs as they climb up the dam. Scourge goes to deal with this diversion and ends up attacking Side Burn and Prowl, throwing the two into the same water as X-Brawn. As this occurs, Sky-Byte sends Dark Scream to install a transmitter to take control of the bombs.

While Optimus Prime arrives at a elsewhere, Megatron broadcasts his threats to a city that relies on the dam, which includes a casino [[Kelly]] is visiting. Megatron orders Scourge to destroy the dam, but when Scourge obediently trips the detonator, nothing happens, because Sky Byte has taken control of it. Sky Byte then says ''he'' will trigger the bombs at Megatron's word, but just as Megatron finishes a three-count for him, Optimus intervenes, and the detonator fell into the water where the Autobot Brothers are waiting. Angered that to be made a fool in front of the humans, Megatron orders Scourge to destroy the dam by any means. Mega-Octane fires at the main bomb, blasting a hole in the dam and causing a blackout in the casino just as Kelly is close to getting a jackpot. While Optimus Prime wrestles with Scourge, the Autobot Brothers slide towards the Commandos and attempted to overturn them. [[Ro-Tor (RID)|Ro-Tor]] and [[Movor]] try to provide air support, only to be blocked by [[Team Bullet Train]].

The Decepticons attack a dam while the Predacons sabotage their efforts in disguise.


Japanese title: Quintuple Merge! Baldigus

Detailed Synopsis

Scourge and the Decepticons demonstrate their firepower to Megatron by destroying a dam at a remote location. They then plan to attack another one on which people depend. Sky-Byte, meanwhile, is angry that the Decepticons are gaining Megatron's interest, and he enlists Slapper, Dark Scream and Gas Skunk for his plan to steal the credit for Scourge's next plan by disguising themselves as Autobots.

For their part, the Autobots have witnessed the Commandos' assault, and Optimus Prime sends patrols to a number of other dams. At the Sherman Dam near the Los Bogus desert resort, Koji Onishi and his friend Doctor Bridget are going on a tour of the dam by themselves. Meanwhile, X-Brawn is patrolling the dam as well when he encounters Scourge, Mega-Octane, Armorhide and Rollbar. He engages the Decepticons in battle, only to be thrown by Scourge into the water, where he finds he can't swim to the surface. The Predacons watch all this from a distance. When the Decepticons start to plant their pulsar bombs, Koji alerts Optimus, who sends in Side Burn and Prowl. Meanwhile, Sky-Byte orders his disguised Predacons to attack the Decepticon group, who are still planting bombs as they climb up the dam. Scourge goes to deal with this diversion and ends up attacking Side Burn and Prowl, throwing the two into the same water as X-Brawn, where they find themselves similarly stuck. As this occurs, Sky-Byte sends Dark Scream to install a transmitter to take control of the bombs.

While Optimus Prime arrives elsewhere, Megatron broadcasts his threats to a city that relies on the dam, which includes a casino Kelly is visiting. Megatron orders Scourge to destroy the dam, but when Scourge obediently trips the detonator, nothing happens, because Sky-Byte has taken control of it. Sky-Byte then says he will trigger the bombs at Megatron's word, but just as Megatron finishes a three-count for him, Optimus intervenes, and the detonator falls into the water where the Autobot Brothers are waiting. Angered at being made a fool of in front of the humans, Megatron orders Scourge to destroy the dam by any means necessary. Mega-Octane fires at the main bomb, blasting a hole in the dam and causing a blackout in the casino just as Kelly is close to getting a jackpot. While Optimus Prime wrestles with Scourge, the Autobot Brothers slide towards the Commandos and attempt to overturn them. Ro-Tor and Movor try to provide air support, only to be blocked by Team Bullet Train.

Sky-Byte and the Predacons hope to take out both parties with some indiscriminate fire, but the plan boomerangs on them when Scourge tries to shoot at the dam, only for Optimus to tackle him. He unwittingly fires at Sky-Byte and company, sending them into the water.

Team Bullet Train decides to combine into Rail Racer, but the Commandos counter this by forming Ruination. They initially pin down the giant Autobot, but the three Autobot Brothers jump into the fray, allowing Rail Racer to blast Ruination into his separate components. Scourge is forced to abort the mission.

The dam is then repaired and power is restored, revealing to Kelly that she didn't win anything. Meanwhile, Megatron is angry with Scourge, while Sky-Byte vows to make Earth his own personal domain.
