Go Shooter is a fictional character from the Transformers series introduced in 1988. He is the main kid character in the Japanese anime series Transformers: Super-God Masterforce. He should not be confused with the Autobot Siren, who looks similar.
Transformers: Generation 1
Shuta Go, aka Go Shooter, is a 13 year old Japanese boy who became a Headmaster Junior for the Autobots. He has a strong sense of justice and sportsmanship. He can summon armor which allow him to turn into a head of the robot formed by his car. As a robot he carries a Plasma Power Rifle and Plasma Gun.
Shuta first appears in episode #1 of Transformers: Super-God Masterforce, called "Rise Up!! Pretenders." Where he is taken hostage by the Decepticon Pretenders, but he is saved by the Autobot Pretenders.
During a desert battle with Overlord, God Bomber revealed an unexpected ability by reconfiguring his components into a robot mode in response to Ginrai's threat. Later, the Headmaster Juniors discovered that they could control Godbomber in both of his modes by uniting their own Chokon Power, together matching the level used by Ginrai to control him.
With Black Zarak's return to Earth and subsequent merging with Devil Z, God Ginrai was forced into a final battle with the hybrid entity. He succeeded in decapitating the villain, but Black Zarak then assumed a new hydra alternate mode, which God Ginrai destroyed with his God Fire Guts attack. With the added power of the Headmaster Juniors from within his God Bomber components, God Ginrai then executed the almighty Final Fire Guts attack, destroying Devil Z. With the energy-being's destruction, Ginrai and the other humans were separated from their Transtectors, who continued to exist as true robot lifeforms, having evolved real personalities through their partnership with humans. The newly-born Transformers then departed Earth to pursue the surviving Decepticons back into space.
