The SuperRobot anime '''''Lightspeed Electrogod Albegas''''' (光速電神アルベガス Kousoku Denjin Arubegasu) debuted in 1983 amongst a sea of many robot anime. Had things gone differently for Creator/WorldEventsProductions, it would have been formally incorporated into the ''Anime/{{Voltron}}'' mythos.

Three high school kids named Daisaku Enjouji, Tetsuya Jin and Hotaru Mizuki, construct three [[HumongousMecha giant robots]] named Alpha Robot, Beta Robot and Gamma Robot as part of a school science fair. At the same time, the evil Derringer Empire decides to expand its domain to Earth- which has lived in peace for so long that they barely have any means to repel the invasion. Hence, when the villains begin their attack, Hotaru’s dad, Professor Mizuki, modifies the robots into combat machines that can merge into the SuperRobot Albegas to defend the planet.


* CombiningMecha: [[MultiFormBalance In six different ways!]]
* {{Expy}}: Conceptually, the show is a ''very'' obvious copy of ''Manga/GetterRobo'', straight down to "the three vehicles combine differently to produce different robots". This is a large part of the reason the show is forgotten in Japan, as it was generally seen as an inferior copy of Getter.
* HumongousMecha
* ImprobableAge: Three kids, still in High School, building three giant robots. ‘Nuff said.
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter: Inverted with Hotaru, since she's the daughter of TheProfessor rather than the MadScientist.
* MultiFormBalance
* StreetUrchin: It's strongly implied that [[spoiler: Tetsuya]] once was this.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: The two guys are Daisaku and Tetsuya, the girl is Hotaru.
