Redman (レッドマン Reddoman?) is a Japanese tokusatsu television series. A Kyodai Hero programme, it features the titular hero growing to immense size and fighting similarly sized monsters. Originally broadcast as 138 five-minute segments as part of the children's variety show Ohayo! Kodomo Show on Nihon TV, it was produced by Tsuburaya Productions. Redman was initially aired between April 3, 1972 to September 8 of that same year.

The superhero Redman battles the Ultraman monster Jirass. Many of Redman's foes were from the Ultra Series.

It is similar in many ways to the most famous of Kyodai Hero series', the Ultra Series; indeed, all enemy monsters featured were re-used from programmes produced as part of that franchise.
