Enter on the Stage! The Name of the Savior Is Ginrai! (登場! 救世主の名はジンライ! Tojo! Kyuseishu no Na wa Ginrai!) is the 4th issue of the Masterforce comic. It takes cues from A Hero Is Chosen - His Name Is Ginrai, which is the source Masterforce episode for this comic.
The Autobots are in for a hard battle against the powerful Decepticon Godmaster Brothers: Hydra & Buster. But however, a hero will come when all seems lost.
The Decepticon Godmasters show up along with the Pretenders and the Headmaster Juniors at the seashore. Meanwhile, the Godmaster Bros. have already set out earlier in the morning to "welcome" Ginrai, who is about to arrive in Japan from the United States.
Hawk and the Headmaster Juniors arrive at Harumi Wharf to pick Ginrai up. But they don't see the cargo boat boarded by Ginrai. Hawk worries about why Ginrai has still not arrived yet and calls Diver to ask whether something bad happened to Ginrai. Diver tells Hawk not to worry because Ginrai resembles the "hero".
Hydra and Buster arrive at the harbor and transform into Darkwings right after Hawk ends the call, forcing the Autobots' transform motion into their Transformer forms to take place. Metalhawk gets struck down immediately by the Godmaster Brothers. While Hydra and Buster are having their moment, the cargo ship arrives at the harbor. Ginrai drives his truck out from the cargo boat in his Master Suit; he and the truck then transform into robot mode and use "Super-Soul Guts" to blow Hydra and Buster far away.
Hawk talks to Ginrai when the sun is about to set. Hawks think Ginrai must be the reincarnation of Optimus Prime since he is an Autobot savior with a solar-red body and a hot-blooded mind. This must be the power of the hero entrusted to him by the god of the universe. But Ginrai thinks he has nothing to do with that and just wants to do something he wants to do because he lives only once. That is the reason he joined the Autobots. Hawk is very happy about Ginrai and everyone welcomes him.
