Next to his older sister, Tadashi, his closest friend is Baymax (Jason Lee), a robotic helper with a heart of gold who acts as a constant companion. When a sudden turn of events thrusts Hiro into the midst of a scheming plot, he quickly transforms Baymax and other robots from ordinary to superheroes. The film follows the relationship between Hiro and Baymax as they form an unlikely friendship to save the world from villains. With the help of Hiro's best friend, his sister's best friend and their robot sidekicks, the duo quickly learns to become formidable forces.
Hiro is a genius with a love for robotics and technology. He was born on the day that the first Japanese robots appeared on Earth. As a child, he dreamt of one day being a robot, but the dream proved impossible to him. One day, while riding his bike, Hiro came across the story of two robotic beings who fell in love with each other and decided to build a real family. Hiro was able to follow their dreams and become a robot but when the scheming scientist who created the robot went missing, Hiro was left in a strange place where he would find himself battling monsters, battling with robots and fighting for the love of his life.
Hiro was raised by his father, Dr. Hiro Takai, a famous scientist whose inventions are still sought after today. Hiro's mother, Yukari Takai, worked as a photographer in San Francisco, but was forced to relocate to New York City as a result of her husband's death. Hiro was taught about robots and how they work at an early age by his father. However, despite all the information given to him, Hiro found himself a bit confused. His father always spoke of the importance of teamwork, but Hiro couldn't figure out why there was such a thing as a team. In order to fix this issue, Hiro formed his own robot club of robots, which included both children and robots of his own generation.
Hiro and Baymax first formed a strong friendship when the latter saved Hiro's younger brother from a flying kite. Baymax became a popular mascot of Hiro's, helping Hiro raise funds for his family. Once Hiro went to college, he took a job as a professor at his father's old university. His life changed dramatically when he was asked to train the daughter of the head of the department in robotics, who then left him to work in San Francisco to help her.
Hiro and Baymax continue to travel together throughout their travels and when they discover a mysterious portal, Hiro must enter the portal in order to save Hiro from a villain known as Syndrome. Syndrome steals Hiro's childhood friend from him and places him in an alternate universe, where he becomes a monster known as "Scary". Syndrome turns Hiro into a cyborg and Hiro must use his knowledge of robotics to defeat his evil counterpart. In the end, Hiro ends up returning to his original world, only to find that his friend has already made a new life for himself in San Francisco. The two of them form an unlikely friendship and join forces to stop Syndrome once and for all. Once Hiro reunites with Baymax, the two become inseparable and pursue their own lives.
The film ends with the destruction of Hiro's home, which is taken over by a villain. Hiro escapes and joins up with his new Robot Club, with whom he plans to take revenge on the villain responsible for the destruction of his home. As a result, he also finds himself becoming more familiar with his robotic friends as he becomes more involved with the storyline and characters. Overall, Big Hero 6 is one of the best animated films of all time.
