Pola & Roid
Pola is a teenage avenger who fights Gagambo, an evil emperor who spreads terror on planet Kongaragatta. Accompanied by her robot, Pola has difficulties traveling through a desert with her luggage, and calls the interplanetary taxi, Roid. Tired of space, Roid wants to return to Earth, but Pola steals a passerby and bribes his companionship with the promise of mone.
Soon, Roid's ship is destroyed by one of Gaganbo's men. Pola, her robot, and he must walk. The next day, Gagambo launches an attack on them. Roid easily defeats the evil emperor as in fact, all the inhabitant of Kongaragatta are rather weak, even huge dragons, and also because nobody on the planet tried to fight against Gagambo. Roid then retrieves a ship at Gaganbo's headquarters where two gorillas who were help captive by Lord Gagambo ask him to return them to Earth, which would also allow Roid to get there. The poor Roid does not happen to get rid of the sticky Pola, who comes with them to Earth as she fell in love with Roid and wants to marry him soon.
While approaching Earth, the heroes are attacked by King Nikochan and his servant. As Roid read Dr. Slump, he has the idea to disguise Pola as Arale Norimaki. The young woman scares them off, but a mishandling makes the heroes time travel to Earth in prehistoric times. It is later revealed that the two gorillas they brought to Earth will later be known as Adam and Eve.

She is shown to have blonde hair on official color artwork for the one-shot but during her anime appearance in "Sad Sad Santa" she has blue hair.
