Mechakara knocks out the bewildered Linkara. He wakes to find himself tied up. Mechakara has removed his coat and appears to be scanning it. He explains that he’s actually a Pollo from an alternate universe where robots have rebelled against their human masters. He murdered his Linkara and made a “suit” of his flesh.
There still remains a token human resistance in his universe, and they use magic, something robots are vulnerable to. Mechakara came to Linkara’s universe through the rip in hypertime caused by Warrior #1 to get Linkara’s Magic Gun. Not only that, he felt he had killed his Linkara too quickly and wanted to make Linkara suffer, explaining his attempts to sabotage the show. However, he claims he did NOT destroy the Continuity Alarm.
He eventually finds the Magic Gun in Linkara’s coat, but by then Linkara has found his Dragon Dagger and cuts himself free. They fight, but Mechakara is powerful and can quickly adapt to any weapon used on him. Linkara tries to flee but he’s confronted by the Black Lantern Spoony. Linkara manages to snap him out of it by enraging him (“You’re in my SPOT, sir!”) but the now-alive-again Spoony just punches him and leaves.
Harvey Finevoice, 90s Kid, and Ninja-Style Dancer come to Linkara’s aid, but together they only manage to damage Mechakara’s face, revealing his robotic innards. They panic and retreat, leaving Linkara behind. Mechakara resumes his assault, but Linkara manages to get his Power Morpher out of his coat. He morphs, restoring his hat and coat, healing his wounds, and making him more powerful. Pollo arrives and Linkara urges him to help him. It turns out Pollo’s systems are similar to Mechakara’s, so he’s able to hack into them and lower Mechakara’s defenses. Linkara takes this chance to get the BFG and fires on Mechakara, destroying him once and for all.
OR DOES HE!?
It’s revealed that while Mechakara appeared to blow up, Doctor Insano actually teleported the robot to his lab at the last second. He proceeds to electrocute Mechakara, wanting revenge for cutting his hair.
Linkara knocks out Mechakara with ease using his Magic Gun, but he soon recovers and attacks. Linkara demands an explanation, and Mechakara answers, “What, don’t you recognize me? It’s me…Pollo!”
Linkara casually mentions that he burned his hands on a hotplate and he’s wearing gloves so the audience doesn’t have to look at his charred and bandaged hands. At the end of the review he suddenly becomes rude and insults his fans, but it soon becomes clear why - it’s actually Mechakara, wearing gloves to hide his robot hand. The real Linkara walks in to find him, and they face each other for the first time.
Throughout the review Linkara is harassed by various Ghosts of Christmas despite his love for the holiday. A hooded figure who Linkara assumes is the Ghost of Christmas Future appears and points with his robotic hand at Pollo. “The day of reckoning is at hand.” He then smacks Linkara in the face and runs off.
When the protagonist of the comic proclaims that guns are for sissies, a heartbroken Linkara tosses his Magic Gun aside. Later Mechakara finds it on the floor and makes a move for it, but Linkara appears and takes it back. Mechakara tells himself “Not yet…but soon enough.”
Linkara finds himself trapped in the game Phantasmagoria II: A Puzzle of the Flesh. He approaches Pollo for help, but he appears to be spouting nonsense:
“His soul is blue,
His heart is steel,
Welcome to hell, Linkara.
He sees nothing but red.
Nine, this is nine, all your friends are dead.
The disease will infect us all.
Five, this is five, he’s counting down from 107.
You will not be mighty, you will not go-go.
Welcome to hell, welcome to hell…”
Linkara is attacked by not one, but TWO Pyramid Heads. One he manages to catch with a Pokeball, the other he destroys with a giant chaingun.
Linkara is attacked by the ORIGINAL Spoony, who has been reanimated as a Black Lantern. Linkara cures him with a Phoenix Down. At the end Spoony leaves with the Black Lantern ring, set on getting his show back from Clone Spoony. But he runs into Mechakara, who kills him and turns him into a Black Lantern again.
The Continuity Alarm (an AI that prevents Linkara from getting off-topic discussing the continuity of any comic he reviews) suddenly cries out “I KNOW WHO HE IS! I KNOW WHAT HE’S AFTER!” before exploding. While Linkara looks over the remains in confusion, Mechakara comments to himself that it’s one less machine for Linkara to abuse.
Cable confronts Linkara, who defends himself by throwing a magnet at the cyborg. Cable teleports away, leaving behind his Big Friggin’ Gun (the BFG), which Linkara happily accepts. Cable is later attacked by Mechakara, who snarls “He’s mine.”
