Getter Emperor is a massive, ever-expanding Getter Machine existing in the far future.

In all appearances of Shin Getter Robo, the Emperor has been alluded to; usually in the form of either the appearance of the Emperor's equivalent of the Eagle Machine.
Getter Emperor's first official appearance was in the manga Shin Getter Robo. Here, it is depicted in the distant future terrorizing an alien armada prompting one of its smaller vessels to travel back to the era of the creation of the Emperor's larval form: Shin Getter Robo. After a grueling struggle, the enormous vessel is pulled -along with Ryoma Nagare and Hayato Jin in Shin Getter Robo- back to its native era where it is destroyed by Getter Emperor. After Ryoma and Hayato ponder the meaning of this enormous Getter, they are sent back to their own time.
