When Metalhawk and the Autobot Pretenders living on Earth came to suspect that their Decepticon enemies would soon reappear to threaten the planet, they revealed themselves to Professor Gō, seeking the scientist's help in preparing for the fight ahead. Happy to render his services, Gō created a large subterranean complex that would serve as a staging base and headquarters for the Autobots when the battle began. Within this base, he stored three Headmaster Junior Transtectors sent to Earth by Chromedome of the Autobot Headmasters, who were occupied battling the Decepticons in space. Gō kept his alliance with the Autobots a secret from his son Shūta, but Metalhawk, in his human form of "Mr. Hawk," was a regular presence at Gō's observatory research centre and became good friends with Shūta.
When the day of the Decepticons' return finally came, Gō and Hawk were attending one of Shūta's school soccer matches. On their way back to Gō's research centre, they were contacted by Diver with news of a Decepticon attack on a cruise ship. Realizing that the day they had long dreaded had arrived, Gō was hesitant to tell Shūta the truth, but Metalhawk convinced him it was the right thing to do, and the boy was told the tale of the Transformers.
After several further attacks by the Decepticons and their Destroids, Prefessor Gō began to feel it was time to activate the Transtectors. Gō did not get to realize this goal, however, thanks to a Decepticon attack on his observatory while most of the Autobots were occupied fighting in the Karin Islands. Only Lander was present to defend him against the Decepticon Blood, who collapsed a stone pillar on top of the professor, leaving him trapped as the facility exploded. When the Autobots returned, there was only rubble left to sift through, but the fatally wounded Gō was discovered clinging to life in the wreckage. Asking Metalhawk to take care of Shūta, he handed his son the key to the base he had built for the Autobots, and died.
