Police have detained them in three major cities, London, New York, and Tokyo. A Scumlabs doctor escaped in the final war under George’s pursuit. He began to re-establish his base system and hired new soldiers. The first bases have been located in Salt Lake City. However, the organization’s doctor called for help from three other monsters to rescue George and his friends. They are Boris, Curtis, and Ruby. Boris is a powerful rhino. Curtis is a mouse capable of detecting targets at a long distance. Ruby has the appearance of a giant lobster with incredible strength.
