Industrialist Carl Ziktor's virtual alter-ego Grimlord worked on the creation of an army made of warrior robots. And, before he became missing for two years, Ryan Steel's father worked with Professor Hart to prevent Grimlord's efforts by developing the ultimate weapon using the most advanced technology man had ever seen to stop him. Now, with the help of his friends J.B. and Kaitlin, Ryan and his friends use the VR power to prevent Grimlord's army from crossing over into our reality from Virtual Reality--and ruling it. However, will Ryan ever find his father? Written by

[J.B. is informed that Ryan has rescued the puppies]
Thanks! Now to head back before...
[Skugs show up in battle]
Oh, no, too late!
[each Skug takes off its own head and kicks it onto the ground; the heads explode, heavily damaging J.B.]

This U.S./Japan hybrid would have succeeded had it not been for contrivances by the American production team. The Saban company attempted to distinguish it from the Power Rangers as much as possible, by having the heroes fights set in virtual cyberspace instead of reality.
The U.S. characters lacked the personality to draw kids/audiences in. The villain Grimlord is actually a white business man in the real world, but inanely chants "Forces of darkness, empower me, blah, blah, blah" to enter cyberspace. So silly. The fight footage is great, almost rivaling the footage of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. However, the fact that it occurs in "virtual reality" is downright stupid.
VR Troopers had entertainment value, but it made me cringe a lot.
