Metal Soldier Cyborg 009 (金属兵士 サイボーグ009 (ダブルオーナイン), Kinzoku Heishi Saibōgu Daburu Ō Nain), pronounced "Double-O Nine" rather than "Zero-Zero Nine" in the original work, is a fanfiction anime by LDEJRuff based on Shotaro Ishinomori's Cyborg 009. It follows the exploits of a group of cyborgs whose lives were altered by the secret organization, Black Ghost. Their leader, Joe Shimamura (the titular character under the alias "009"), was once a human born of American and Japanese descent. The cyborgs fight for freedom and try to prevent Black Ghost from starting a new world war and taking over the world.

- Geronimo Jr. (ジェロニモ·ジュニア, Jeronimo Junia) - 005 (ダブルオーファイブ, Daburu Ō Faibu), a Native American who was unable to find work due to the way other people treated his kind.

- Chang Changku (張々湖, Chanchanko) - 006 (ダブルオーシックス, Daburu Ō Shikkusu), a former Chinese farmer who tried to commit suicide after failing to take care of his pigs.

- Pyunma (ピュンマ) - 008 (ダブルオーエイト, Daburu Ō Eito), an African fisher who was sold to slavery. He barely escaped, but his captors eventually cornered him. Black Ghost shot and fatally wounded his captors and "rescued" him, and eventually rebuilt him as a cyborg with a fish-like body and the ability to breathe both air and water.

It turns out that Black Ghost operatives killed the pastor, and, after running for his life, he attempted to commit suicide by jumping off a cliff, only to be "rescued" by Black Ghost. They rebuilt him as a cyborg with the ability to slow down time with the click of a button on his left wisdom tooth.
