Azuma Carl Thompson, a Gunpla Builder from a poor family, and Tim Barret, a beginner Gunpla Builder from a rich and well-to-do family, had a chance encounter while preparing to sign onto Gunpla Battle Nexus Online. Forced into the game world by two receptionists to stop their argument, they were given the Diver Names "BALL" and "GIMM" based on their Gunplas. After a humiliating defeat at the hands of a Diver named "Louis XIII" and his Master Grade RX-78-02 Gundam, the two took the time to build up their skills and improved their builds, creating the GM Turbulence and RB-79PP Polypodball, and took down the Diver. However, to their surprise, Louis XIII's Gunpla was actually a "Gunpra", a third-party model created by the overseas company "Fakes". But, to keep this a secret, the "Gunpra" self-destructed and locked the two from leaving GBN. To escape from this world, they must find and defeat a Legendary Gunpla and receive a Golden Poly-Cap to log out.
