Premise[edit]

The series revolves around Ky, a 15-year-old student of ancient martial arts, who embarks on an epic quest to find the Kairu, a primordial alien energy source. Aided by his friends Maya and Boomer, Ky travels the world searching for the Kairu while attempting to make sure that his extraterrestrial teenage alien adversaries don’t find it first.[1]

Episodes[edit]

Characters[edit]

Team Stax[edit]

Ky fiercely believes his father survived the Great Cataclysm and is determined to discover the truth behind Connor's disappearance. Like many 15 year olds, Ky is impulsive and fearless, and though his rebellious nature sometimes conflicts with his Kairu training, his honor and dedication to the rules of Kairu almost always triumph over his teenage instincts. Ky is a determined and loyal warrior and shows all the potential of someday becoming a great and powerful Redakai.

Ky's signature monster is the Plasma powered Metanoid and its Plasma-Energy Blast and Plasma Swords attacks with the Seismic powered Fractus and its Magma Minions and Boulder Toss attacks rounding out his go-to combo.

When she was a baby, Master Boddai picked Maya up after being left at his door, and she regards as her origins remain a mystery, and longs to understand her past. However, in the Season 1 Finale, she discovers that the blue markings on her face are symbols of extreme power or evil. Also, Lokar has these same markings on his arms; and Maya realizes that Lokar is her grandfather.

Maya loves the Banshee Scream and Hyper Hurricane of Harrier, with Infinita and its Fire Whip and Fire Tornado attacks providing her with all the back-up monster power she needs.

He was born on a farm in the Midwest and left at young age left to join his childhood best friend Ky as a student of Master Boaddai. While Boomer sometimes struggles to find his place among Team Stax, his strength, versatility, and loyalty make him a valuable asset to the team in their quest to restore balance to the universe.

Boomer leans towards the Hail Storm and Freeze Ray attacks of Froztok, with Chemaster and its Corrosive Crush and Star Smash attacks adding to his elemental one-two monster punch.

Allies[edit]

Connor's signature monster was Riptide with its Tarball and Hydro Hooks attacks. His monster with its attacks now belong to his son, Ky. Later, Ky gave them back.

Villains[edit]

Lokar and Boaddai trained together as young Kairu warriors, and Lokar proved from the beginning to be skilled and intelligent in the ways of Kairu. But instead of using his powers for good, he decided to use the Kairu energy for his own gain, allowing him to become a powerful and destructive force. Lokar has assembled a motley crew of E-Teen warriors to do his dirty work, and he will stop at nothing to collect the Kairu for his own twisted ends, an objective that could prove to be disastrous to Earth … and the entire universe. İn 2nd episode called "Maya Goes Bad", he says that he has plans for Maya, at the 19th episode called "Kairu Visions", Maya sees that she is working for Lokar at the future and at the 1st season finale named "Clash of the Kairu Warriors: Part I/II" he says Maya that he is her real grandfather and treath her at her fight with Ky and pushes her to use extreme dark powers to win the battle. He has marks on his arm that are identical to Maya's face marks.

Team Radikor[edit]

Zane's go-to monster is Bruticon, with his mechanical Anti-Matter Beam attack.

Zair - Zair is Zane's sister, right-hand girl. She is smart and dangerous – an evil version of Maya. While she works well alongside her brother in battles against Team Stax, she isn't afraid to challenge Zane's authority, especially she thinks it will build herself up in Lokar's eyes. At one point, she comes to the aid of Team Stax. But is this because she is good at heart, or could it have more to do with the secret crush she has on Ky?

Zair's signature monster is Cyonis, with its elemental Lightning Strike attack.

Techris's signature monster is Silverbaxx, with its animalistic Earth Slam attack.

Team Imperiaz[edit]

Diara and her siblings Koz and Teeny reluctantly fell under Lokar's control after he kidnapped their parents. She leads her siblings on various quests to find Kairu, often battling Team Stax. Diara is the middle of the siblings, and yet she is made as a full-fledged princess. Diara isn't evil at heart, but obeys Lokar in the hope that someday she will be reunited with her parents. Diara has a fierce temper and a wealth of natural Kairu skills to back it up, making her a dangerous opponent. But if the spoiled Princess had her own way (which she often demands), she would be back at her castle enjoying the perks of royalty.

Princess Diara's monster is Knight Asp with its animalistic Venom Blast attack.

Koz's signature monster is Ocelot, with its Slashing Claws attack.

Teeny's signature monster is the Warnet, with its Laser Sting attack.

Team Battacor[edit]

Zylus's favorite monster is Magnox with its mechanical Magnetic Tornado attack.

Rynoh's signature monster is Spykor with its mechanical Neural Blast attack.

Bash's favorite monster is Drudger and its mechanical Debris Harvest attack.
