Originally created by South Korea, the Iron Kid series was joined by the United States and Europe to become a joint production. Iron Kid displays more than 100 robots that fight using battling techniques derived from various countries such as Chinese martial arts, Japanese swordsmanship, American Boxing, and Korean Taekwondo. Iron Kid is the first ‘Robot Martial Arts Action Series’ and in 2007 it premiered on channel Kids’ WB! under the name of ‘Eon Kid’ in the United States.
The setting takes place in the future where humans and robots live in the same world. The main plot surrounds Marty, who is the sole heir to the legendary family of Eon, and follows his journey as he aims to defeat the evil robot General. In Robot 617, the world is in danger because of the villain General ‘Kaiser’ who is eager to take over the world. The only thing that can stop him is the legendary ultimate weapon, ‘Iron Fist’. One day, curious and stubborn boy, ‘Marty’ meets a mysterious girl ‘Ally’ and comes to be the new owner of the Iron Fist by chance.
