They possesed technology a thousand years advanced of earth such as monocars, rocket powered air transports, as well as long range ray guns, and powerful knockout gas guns. The Zutarians also had an organized military, but were not an aggressive race until the human known as Tyrno conquered them. They are helped by Golden Knight and his partner Alice (Fox) to overthrow Tyrno and prevent him from taking Alice as his wife.
