Kikaider (キカイダー Kikaidā?) is a Japanese television franchise, created by Shotaro Ishinomori, featuring the main character Kikaider. The tokusatsu aired for the first time in July 1972.

The series was originally a live-action tokusatsu series, as was its sequel, Kikaider 01. A manga drawn by Ishinomori was eventually published, introducing Kikaider 00. A 13-episode anime and 4-episode OVA based on the manga were created in 2001.

Ishinomori used the stories of Carlo Collodi's Pinocchio, the basis for Astro Boy, as a tribute to its creator, Osamu Tezuka, Ishinomori's mentor. Cyborg 009 is an influence for this franchise. Other bases for Kikaider included Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, as the inspiration for his science fiction action story.[citation needed]

The tokusatsu series from 1972 is especially popular in Hawaii. The complete DVD series is available with English subtitles through JN Productions.

Media[edit]

Tokusatsu[edit]

Manga[edit]

The manga series was serialized in Shōnen Sunday, Bessatsu Shōnen Sunday and more children's magazines at the same time as the live action television series. Kikaider Code 02 a manga series by MEIMU published by Kadokawa Comics A.

Anime[edit]

Superhero Safety[edit]

In the past, the Super Giant movie series and shows like Moonlight Mask (the first TV superhero in Japan) became controversial, when younger viewers began imitating the stunts performed. The original Android Kikaider series was one of the first tokusatsu superhero TV shows to add safety bumpers at the end of each episode, warning viewers not to imitate the stunts performed by its superhero.

Protagonists[edit]

  • Jiro/Kikaider: The titular protagonist, assuming the human form of Jiro, he is an android built by Dr. Kohmyoji to stop DARK while protecting his creator's children Mitsuko and Masaru Kohmyoji. Unlike other robots, Kikaider possesses morality from being installed with the GEMINI Conscience Circuit. But the circuit is incomplete and he is initially prone to suffer the effects of Professor Gill's hypnotic flute until he is able to overpower its influence. Jiro also has a guitar and motorcycle called "Side Machine." Kikaider is half-blue and half-red is due to his incomplete GEMINI Conscience Circuit (he would be blue if it were complete since blue represents good and red represents evil). It is that later side, the dark side, that Professor Gill tries to exploit in him. In the OVA special "The Boy with the Guitar: Kikaider vs Inazuman," Kikaider becomes completely red due to the submission chip installed by Professor Gill. In Kikaider Code 02, he was initially blue but his left side becomes red with transparent parts. When Hakaider ripped out some of the GEMINI system, Kikaider turned completely red.[citation needed]
  • Dr. Den Kohmyoji: The creator of the three Kikaiders. A top robotics expert, he was captured by DARK to help them build an army of murderous robot monsters. He secretly built the Kikaiders to protect his two children, Mitsuko and Masaru, and the world.
  • Mitsuko Kohmyoji: The daughter of Dr. Kohmyoji, having despised robots since they are tracking her down. By the end of the series, Mitsuko has fallen in love with Jiro. She awaits his return, as he promised in the final episode of the TV series.
  • Masaru Kohmyoji: The spunky younger brother of Mitsuko, and most emotionally transparent character of the entire cast.
  • Hanpei Hattori: A private investigator who befriends and helps Kikaider and his companions, a 16th generation descendant of the ninja Hattori Hanzō. In the manga and anime, Hanpei has a bespectacled girl named Etsuko Sarutobi for an assistant. Is seemingly more laid-back and restrained in the anime version. Both Hanpei and Etsuko appeared briefly in the wreckage of Tokyo in the final episode of the OVA series and Hanpei appears again by himself in the Inazuman vs. Kikaider OVA. Hanpei is derisively nicknamed "Hanpen" by his companions (hanpen is Japanese for "pounded fish cake").
  • Ichiro/Kikaider 01 (Pronounced "Kikaider Zero One"): Jiro's "older brother," the second Kikaider built by Kohmyoji in case of dire emergencies. Modelled after the scientist's late first son Taro, Ichiro/Kikaider 01 is solar-powered, and becomes weak in the dark. While the weakness in the dark was removed from the anime, his solar-power charge was kept. In the anime, Ichiro lacked a conscience circuit, thus lacks the same type of compassion Jiro has. Ichiro seemed to act have a passion for a good fight, but he matures throughout the series and decides to help Jiro in the fight against Shadow. His weapons are his machine-gun arm & the sunlight beam. He plays a trumpet & rides the motorcycle and sidecar called "Double Machine."
  • Rei/Kikaider 00 (pronounced "Kikaider Double-Oh"): The very first and failed Kikaider prototype. He was deemed a failure before his completion, and was left unfinished in Kohmyoji's lab, until he was completed by the priest who was taking care of Ichiro. Like Ichiro, Rei lacks a conscious circuit, but unlike Ichiro, Rei does not show any emotion. He has blades in his hands and can explode causing guns to pop out of parts of his body and also uses an attack by bombarding the enemy with missiles. Unlike his brothers, he neither drives a motorcycle nor has a musical instrument due to his late completion. He wears a yellow suit in his human form. He never appeared in the live-action series. Despite being first built he is considered younger brother to Jiro due to his completion being done at a later time.
  • Mari/Bijinder: (Mieko in the anime and manga) An agent of SHADOW, but joined up with Kikaider to fight at their side. She played a harp and rides the motorcycle called "Bijinder Machine" in the live action version. Her human form was constructed in a highly sensual fashion, which causes her to often make remarks towards her beauty in combat. She can also make other people fall in love with her by looking into their eyes. She unknowingly shares a mental link with Rieko as their sister units, and feels whatever she feels when her emotions are at their highest. In the anime, even after death, Rieko controls Mieko when Hakaider leaves Akira in her care and escapes from SHADOW along with Akira before she dies. In the movie Kikaider Reboot, Mari is an android working in DARK. She has similar basis to Kikaider and Hakaider's name but with Biji, Japanese for beautiful, instead of "Kikai" or Hakai."
  • Rieko: Although she has no alternate name, Rieko is an android. In the live action and manga, Rieko knew she was an android, but in the anime she believed she was human due to Professor Gill installing her memories of another child with the same name. She is Akira's caretaker, treating him as if he were her own child instead. Her android form is similar to Bijinder's form but with two shades of gold with her 'hair' modelled into a sort of swept up bun. She has a green jewel in the center of her forehead with which to shoot a laser at her enemies. Rieko did not change her appearance in the live action.
  • Akira: The second son of Professor Gill. In the Tokusatsu series Kikaider 01 and the manga, Akira had part of the plans for the Giant Devil Robot (Armageddon Lord in anime) on his back and was wanted by both the Hakaider Squad and the Shadow. In the anime version of Kikaider 01, he was 'made' in order to be some sort of tool for Gill's Armageddon Lord, appears to be the power source. In the anime, Akira is very quiet and very uncomfortable without the presence of Rieko at first, since she was the only one to truly take care of him.
  • Hiroshi: Oldest son of Professor Gill. Like his younger brother, he also had part of the plans for the Giant Devil Robot tattooed (with invisible ink) on his back and was also wanted by SHADOW and Hakaider Squad. He does not appear in the anime version of Kikaider 01.
  • Misao : Hiroshi's tutor when the DARK was in operation. After Kikaider's defeat of DARK Misao and Hiroshi were homeless and Misao became a pickpocket. After the death of Rieko, Misao became the guardian of both Hiroshi and Akira. Does not appear in the anime version of Kikaider 01.
  • Gunta Momochi : Inept photographer who takes the place of Hanpei Hattori as comic relief in the live action Kikaider 01. The character was apparently not popular and eventually fades out of the show.

Dark[edit]

  • Professor Gill Helbert: The leader of a terrorist organization called DARK. He once funded Dr. Kohmyoji's research, and he even introduced Mitsuko's and Masaru's mother to Dr. Kohmyoji. Gill hates Kikaider, seeing him as an abomination of robots due to his GEMINI System (not to mention a threat to his ambition), and wants to destroy him as a result. Gill used a flute that can control his DARK Destructoids (and partially affecting Kikaider as well). When DARK was demolished, Gill was mortally injured & his brain was transferred into the body of a restored Hakaider, minus Saburo's AI. Thereafter, Gill became the cyborg Gill-Hakaider, leader of the Hakaider Squad and the terrorist group SHADOW, who must retrieve his son Akira, the core of the project he worked on before Kikaider destroyed DARK, the Armageddon Lord.
  • Saburo/Hakaider: Another android, considered as Jiro's "younger brother" due to him being made by Dr. Kohmyoji. Saburo announces his presence by whistling and uses a gun called "Hakaider Shot" as a weapon, but he feels that hand-to-hand combat is more honorable, unless his foe is either cowardly or defeated. It is later revealed that he has Dr. Kohmyoji's brain is inside Saburo as well. While Jiro was made by Dr. Kohmyoji voluntarily, Saburo was one of the androids Kohmyoji was forced to make under the dominance of DARK to "correct his mistake" by destroying Kikaider. Hakaider controls Jiro by whistling (similar to Gill's flute) and attempts to destroy him by pushing him into not submitting to the GEMINI system. Hakaider almost succeeded in killing Kikaider, when Kohmyoji's brain override Saburo's systems momentarily and helped get Kikaider and the others into DARK HQ. By the time Saburo resumed control, Gill no longer needed him & had the other Hakaider's blast the cyborg's head off (Kikaider, however, saved Kohmyoji's brain for Mitsuko), But Saburo was still active & grabbed Gill by the throat as DARK HQ exploded. Later on, Professor Gill's own brain somehow wound up in Hakaider.
    • The basis of Hakaider's name is the same as that of Kikaider, except that kikai, "machine," is replaced with hakai, "destruction."
    • Saburo uses a knife called the "Destruction Blade" as a weapon and henshin (transformation) device. When Saburo transforms into Hakaider, the Destruction Blade transforms into Hakaider Shot.
    • In 1995, Hakaider got to star in his own movie as an anti-hero in a post-apocalyptic world, but the film did poorly at the box office.
    • Hakaider was George Lucas' inspiration for Darth Vader[citation needed]

Hakaider Squad[edit]

  • The Hakaider Squad: When Hakaider returned from the dead with Professor Gill's brain, instead of Kohmyoji's, he created 3 other Hakaiders from three DARK scientists to serve as his aides; Red, Blue and Silver Hakaiders in episode 1-10. All four Hakaiders combine into a singular robot called Gattaider In Episode 7-8. the 3 Hakaiders sacrificed themselves so that Professor Gill can escape. In the live-action version, all 4 Hakaider also transformed into separate robot monsters; Gill, Red, Blue and Silver Hakaider transformed into Black Dragon (which looks like King Ghidorah) In Episode 7, Red Centipede In Episode 5-6, Blue Alligator In Episode 5 and Silver Shrimp In Episode 4, respectively.
  • Gattaider is based on gattai ("combine").

Shadow[edit]

  • Shadow Knight: A big one-eyed android that resembles a knight and the leader in SHADOW's ranks. In the live action Kikaider 01 series Shadow Knight is the second in command of SHADOW until Big Shadow places Gill Hakaider in that position. Shadow Knight and Hakaider are rivals and will not allow the other to defeat Kikaider 01. In the anime Shadow Knight is Gill Hakaider's second in command.
  • Waruder: Robot samurai warrior, an agent of SHADOW. Appeared in the manga and live-action versions (did not have a robot form in the former). In the live action series, Waruder was in love with Bijinder but she is unable to accept Waruder as long as he is obsessed with destroying Kikaider 01. He plays wooden flute and rides a motorcycle called "Waruder Machine". His name has similar basis to Kikaider and Hakaider's named, but waruiinstead of "Kikai" or "Hakai". "Warui" meaning "evil" in Japanese.
  • Zadam: A conjoined robotic monster with 3 legs, 2 arms, 2 heads, and a pair of red wings on his back. Zadam possesses the ability to split his body into two, when he does, each half has two legs, two arms and one head. In the live action Kikaider 01 series Zadam is from SHADOW's base on the moon and is weakened by sunlight. He takes over Gill Hakaider as the second-in-command of SHADOW, causing both Gill Hakaider and Shadow Knight to resent him. he briefly appeared in the OVA "Kikaider 01: The Animation" before being destroyed by Kikaider 00. In Kikaider Code 02, one half resembles a female and when fused has a tail instead of a third leg.
  • Big Shadow : Mysterious leader of SHADOW, in the Kikaider 01 tokusatsu series who forces Gill Hakaider to serve him.
  • Chigusa Sakamoto: Mother of Mitsuko and Masaru and second wife to Dr. Kohmyoji. Appeared in the anime and briefly mentioned in the manga, she was secretly working for Professor Gill as a spy and left Dr. Kohmyoji and Mitsuko once she completed her mission. In the anime, she returned living in her hometown and was still working for Professor Gill. She admitted she was in love with Professor Gill and married Dr. Kohmyoji because she was ordered to marry him and play the role of his wife and bared Mitsuko and Masaru in order to play her role perfectly. Though she played her role as a housewife and completed her mission, she felt pain for not seeing her children. She regretted meeting Professor Gill and committed suicide in order to escape the pain. Before she died she gave Masaru some shoes for the winter and the coordinates to Professor Gill's headquarters.
