Full title: ''[[AdjectiveNounFred 70's Robot Anime Geppy X]]''. As the title suggests, Geppy X is an affectionate parody of the {{Super Robot}} shows of old in the form of a Japanese 2D shooter for the Playstation spread across a whopping four discs. It revolves around the battle of the titular Manga/GetterRobo -style mecha, piloted by {{The Hero}} Kei, {{The Lancer}} Jin, and {{The Big Guy}} Riki, and their Super Robot allies against the invading forces of the Space Devil Empire and their legions of Space Beasts. The entire game is set up like an actual anime, complete with an open theme before each level, anime-style cutscenes and stock footage, and fake commercials between mission halves. During gameplay, the Geppy X can transform into one of the robot's three forms, air-based X-1, sea-based X-2, and ground-based X-3, each with a chargeable primary and secondary weapon and ultimate attack.
