Secret of the Devil's Castle is the thirteenth episode of the 1968 Cyborg 009 anime. It is partially adapted from the "Underground Empire of Yomi" arc of the manga.
A series of terrorist attacks that destroy famous landmarks begin happening around the world. The evil Baron King, who is responsible for the attacks, reveals himself to the United Nations with one simple demand: Surrender the Earth to him in three days or his hidden network of weaponized satellites will open fire and destroy every city in the world!
004 stumbles upon the plot after witnessing the assassination of a UN Secret Service Agent and calls the 00 Cyborgs to investigate..
- "Baron King" is a loosely modeled adaptation of the character Van Vogt, which makes sense given this is an adaptation of the Yomi manga arc he was the main antagonist of.
