Once upon a time in a near-future dystopia, Tokyo was on the brink of societal and financial collapse. Overwhelmed by crime and dwindling resources, the city grants the mega-corporation Tokyo Consumer Products (TCP) control over the Tokyo Police Department. TCP Senior President Shinichi Nakamura demonstrates KD-209, a law enforcement droid designed to supplant the police. KD-209 malfunctions and brutally kills an executive, allowing ambitious junior executive Hikaru Fujimoto to introduce the Chairman ("The Old Man") to his own project: TokyoCop.
Meanwhile, officer Yuka Nakamura is transferred to the Shinjuku precinct. Nakamura and her new partner, Ayumi Yoshida, pursue notorious criminal Takashi Kato and his gang—Koji Matsuda, Takeshi Tanaka, Hiroko Sato, and Taro Nakamura. The gang ambushes and tortures Nakamura until Kato fatally shoots her. Fujimoto has Nakamura's corpse converted into TokyoCop, a powerful and heavily armored cyborg with no memory of her former life.
TokyoCop is programmed with three prime directives: serve the public trust, protect the innocent, and uphold the law. A fourth prime directive, Directive 4, is classified. TokyoCop is assigned to Shinjuku and hailed by the media for her brutally efficient campaign against crime. Yoshida suspects she is Nakamura, recognizing the unique way she holsters her gun, a trick Nakamura learned to impress her daughter. During maintenance, TokyoCop experiences a nightmare of Nakamura's death. She leaves the station and encounters Yoshida, who addresses her as Nakamura.
While on patrol, TokyoCop arrests Matsuda, who recognizes Nakamura's mannerisms, furthering TokyoCop's recall. TokyoCop then uses the police database to identify Matsuda's associates and review Nakamura's police record. TokyoCop recalls further memories while exploring Nakamura's former home, her husband and daughter having moved away following her death.
Elsewhere, Nakamura gets Kato to murder Fujimoto, in revenge for Fujimoto's attempt to usurp her position at TCP. TokyoCop tracks down the Kato gang and a shootout occurs. She brutally assaults Kato, who confesses to working for Nakamura. TokyoCop attempts to kill Kato until her programming directs her to uphold the law. She attempts to arrest Nakamura at TCP Tower, but Directive 4 is activated—a failsafe measure to neutralize TokyoCop when acting against a TCP executive.
Nakamura admits her culpability in Fujimoto's death and releases a KD-209 to destroy TokyoCop. Although she escapes, TokyoCop is assaulted by the police force on TCP's order and is badly damaged. Yoshida helps TokyoCop escape to an abandoned steel mill to repair herself.
Angered by TCP's underfunding and short-staffing, the police force goes on strike, and Tokyo descends into chaos as riots break out throughout the city. Nakamura frees Kato and his remaining gang, arming them with high-powered weaponry to destroy TokyoCop. At the steel mill, Kato's men are quickly eliminated, but Yoshida is badly injured and TokyoCop becomes trapped under steel girders. Even so, she kills Kato by stabbing him in the throat with her data spike.
TokyoCop confronts Nakamura at TCP Tower during a board meeting, revealing the truth behind Fujimoto's murder. Nakamura, in order to escape, takes the Old Man hostage but is promptly fired from TCP, nullifying Directive 4 and allowing TokyoCop to shoot her, causing Nakamura to crash through a window to her death. The Old Man compliments TokyoCop's shooting and asks her name; TokyoCop replies, "Nakamura".
She went on to describe how RoboCop was an advanced robot with powerful weapons and heavily armored with no memory of his former life. RoboCop was programmed with three prime directives: serve the public trust, protect the innocent, and uphold the law. The fourth prime directive, Directive 4, was classified.
RoboCop was assigned to a precinct and hailed by the media for his brutally efficient campaign against crime. However, she suspected that RoboCop was not just a robot, but actually a person named Murphy, who was transferred to that precinct. During maintenance, RoboCop experienced a nightmare of Murphy's death. He left the station and encountered his partner, who addressed him as Murphy. While on patrol, RoboCop arrested a criminal who recognized Murphy's mannerisms, furthering his recall. RoboCop then used the police database to identify the criminal's associates and review Murphy's police record. RoboCop recalled further memories while exploring Murphy's former home, his wife and child having moved away following his death.
Meanwhile, a senior executive named Bob Morton introduced his own project, RoboCop, to the Chairman of the corporation. This project was in competition with a law enforcement droid designed by another executive named Dick Jones. Jones got the notorious criminal Clarence Boddicker and his gang to murder Morton in revenge for Morton's attempt to usurp his position at the corporation. RoboCop tracked down the Boddicker gang and a shootout occurred. He brutally assaulted Boddicker, who confessed to working for Jones. RoboCop attempted to arrest Jones at the corporation's tower, but Directive 4 was activated. Jones admitted his culpability in Morton's death and released his own droid to destroy RoboCop. Although he escaped, RoboCop was assaulted by the police force on the corporation's order and was badly damaged. His partner helped him escape to an abandoned steel mill to repair himself.
Angered by the corporation's underfunding and short-staffing, the police force went on strike, and the city descended into chaos as riots broke out throughout the city. Jones freed Boddicker and his remaining gang, arming them with high-powered weaponry to destroy RoboCop. At the steel mill, Boddicker's men were quickly eliminated, but RoboCop's partner was badly injured, and RoboCop became trapped under steel girders. Even so, he killed Boddicker by stabbing him in the throat with his data spike. RoboCop confronted Jones at the corporation's tower during a board meeting, revealing the truth behind Morton's murder. Jones, in order to escape, took the Chairman hostage but was promptly fired from the corporation, nullifying Directive 4 and allowing RoboCop to shoot him, causing Jones to crash through a window to his death. The Chairman complimented RoboCop's shooting and asked his name; RoboCop replied, "Murphy".
