When a mysterious new rebel begins fighting Dominator's forces, Sylvia becomes jealous.

Episode Summary

On Bingleborp, King Bingleborp is hosting another Bingleberry festival, when a Dominator-Bot suddenly attacks the planet. Wander and Sylvia watch as the bot wreaks havoc on the planet. Then, a mysterious cyclist donning an attire closely resembling Wander's arrives and quickly defeats the Dominator-Bot, after which he is rewarded with money and a kiss from the king's daughter. Sylvia, upset that the man saved the town rather than her and Wander, decides to follow him around.

Later, on Flendar, Wander spots another Dom-Bot destroying a temple. Sylvia rushes to try and take down the bot, but before she can do anything, the mysterious man from the previous bot encounter vanquishes the bot, and is again rewarded with money and a kiss from a princess. Denying Wander's claims of jealousy, Sylvia suspects that the man may be a fraud.

After a montage of the hero saving more planets from Dom-bots, Sylvia orchestras a plan to save the next planet form an attack before the hot shot arrives. When he does appear, Sylvia races to reach the bot first. With help from a distraction by Wander, Sylvia begins her attack on the bot, only to learn that it is being controlled by a boy named Chad. It is then revealed that the hot shot rider is actually Brad Starlight, and that he is faking saving towns from Dom-bot attacks in order to receive rewards and kisses from princesses. However, when Brad speeds off to stage another attack, a real Dom-bot launches an attack on the planet.

Wander and Sylvia quickly destroy the bot after Brad is incapacitated, after which they are applauded by the town. When Brad attempts to take all of the glory, Sylvia points him to a leech-like princess, who forcefully kisses him.
