Chronology
Preceded by Space Sheriff Gavan
Followed by Space Sheriff Shaider

Space Sheriff Sharivan (宇宙刑事シャリバン Uchū Keiji Shariban?) is the second installment in Toei's Metal Hero Series and aired on the TV Asahi network from 4 March 1983 through 24 February 1984. It served as a direct sequel to its predecessor, Space Sheriff Gavan and featured many of the same characters.

For distribution purposes, Toei refers to this television series as Shariban, The Space Guardian.[1]

Plot[edit]

Initially appearing in Space Sheriff Gavan, Den Iga is attacked by a monster called Buffalo Doubler, member of the Space Mafia Makuu. Den is seriously injured in the attack when he is found by Gavan, who takes him to Planet Bird for medical assistance. Qom, leader of the Galactic Union Police (銀河連邦警察 Ginga Renpō Keisatsu?), is impressed by Den's courage. Den returns in the final episode of Gavan, saving Gavan himself in his newly acquired form of Space Sheriff Sharivan during Gavan's final battle. After Don Horror is defeated, Sharivan is assigned to Earth and is partnered together with Lily from the planet Bird as he deals with the threat of the Madou Space Crime Syndicate on Earth

Characters[edit]

Grand Birth crew[edit]

Based on the Grand Birth (グランドバース Gurando Bāsu?), it serves as headquarters of Den and Lily as it circles around the Earth. It has two modes: Battle Mothership move able to fires the Birth Beam and the vaguely humanoid Battle Birth Formation that fires the Grand Buster and Plasma Cannon (the latter being based on the blueprints of the Space Cannon built by Voicer, Gavan's father).

  • Den Iga (伊賀 電 Iga Den?): Originally from Inner Iga Island, he served as forest patroller until fatally wounded by Buffalo Doubler and saved by Gavan who brought him to Planet Bird to undergo special training to become Space Sheriff Sharivan (宇宙刑事シャリバン Uchū Keiji Shariban?), aiding Gavan during his final battle with the Makuu before assigned to protect Earth in his predecessor's place. When he transforms with the command Sekisha (赤射 Sekisha?, Red Shine), the Grand Birth envelops him with Solar Metal particles that it absorbs from solar flares to form his armor within milliseconds. As Sharivan, he uses the Laser Blade sword in his signature move Sharivan Crash or the Crime-Buster hand gun. Sharivan uses Prism Goggles to see clearly the object. It is a rectangular yellow glasses with crystal particles
  • Lily (リリー Rirī?): Sharivan's girlfriend from Planet Bird.

Arsenal[edit]

  • Motosharian (モトシャリアン?): Sharivan's motorcycle, capable of entry into the Phantom Dream World.
  • Sharinger Tank (シャリンガータンク Sharingā Tanku?): Sharivan's tank, which splits into a flying upper half and treaded lower half.
  • Mogriran (モグリラン Moguriran?): Sharivan's drill-headed vehicle.

Galactic Union Patrol[edit]

  • Captain Gavan: The Space Sheriff who was previously assigned on Earth.
  • The Organizers (オーガナイザー Ōganaizā?, 27, 50): The anti-Madou resistance, represented by Moore, Keith, and Rita, who aid Sharivan.
  • Iga Warriors (伊賀戦士 Iga Senshi?, 51): The mystical warriors from Iga Planet to protect the wonders and civilizations of the Iga Crystal. Membered by Jack, Fumio, Rumi and Yoshio
  • Billy and Helen Bell (ビリーとヘレンベル Birī to Heren Beru?, 36-42): Iga warrior siblings trained to be Space Sheriffs. After Billy is killed, Helen becomes Sharivan's apprentice to avenge his death.

Space Crime Syndicate Madou[edit]

The Space Crime Syndicate Madou (宇宙犯罪組織マドー Uchū Hantsumi Soshiki Madō?, literally "demon way") is an organization of psychic criminals whose headquarters, Genmu Castle (幻夢城 Genmu Shiro?), lies within the Genmu World (幻夢界 Genmukai?, Phantom Vision World) dimension, a "white hole" where all the matter sucked up by black holes ends up. The syndicate intends to conquer the universe through chaos created by its members' psionic abilities, along with their space fighters and the Madou Battleship.

  • Demon King Psycho (魔王サイコ Maō Saiko?): The immobile ruler of Madou, able to protect his consciousness into multiple forms such as his fully mobile cyborg body Psychorror which is armed with twin swords that emit lightning bolts. With Gavan dealing with Psychorror, Sharivan destroys Psycho. However, by the events of Kamen Rider × Super Sentai × Space Sheriff: Super Hero Taisen Z which introduced a detachment from his conscious named Psycholon, Psycho's true body is revealed to be Genmu Castle itself as he is revived from the energy of the Galactic Union Police's Super Dimension Cannon. However, Psycho is destroyed for good by the teamwork of the Space Sheriffs, the Kyoryugers and Kamen Rider Wizard.
  • General Gyrer (ガイラー将軍 Gairā Shōgun?, 1-49): A black-armored field commander who is defeated by Sharivan. In the cross-over movie, Retsu, Den and Dai mistakenly thought Gyrer had revived, but he was actually a vendor who just looks like Gyrer, much to the Trio's Surprise.
  • Doctor Polter (ドクターポルター Dokutā Porutā?): A female strategist who dies fighting against Sharivan and Gavan.
  • Reider (レイダー Reidā?, 34-50): A mystic from the Death Spirit World who intended to take over Madou, only to be destroyed by Psychorror. But during the events of Kamen Rider × Super Sentai × Space Sheriff: Super Hero Taisen Z, Reider revived to aid in Psycho's resurrection through the Space Shocker organization he provides his magic to. Though killed, Reider is revived as Space Reider before being destroyed for good by Kamen Ride Beast and Kyoryu Gold.
  • Miss Akuma 1 and 2 (ミスアクマ1ト2 Misu Akuma 1 to 2?): Gyrer, and Doctor Polter's female aides. Miss Akuma 2 was devoured by Gamagon. Miss Akuma 1 was killed along with her mistress while fighting Sharivan and Gavan.
  • Soldier Psychoers (戦士サイコラー Senshi Saikorā?): Also referred to as Fighters, they serve as the foot soldiers of Madou in black tights decorated with lightning bolts.
  • Bengel Brothers: A pair of space pirates from Dark Cloud Mazalan that appear in episode 11 that briefly join the Madou named Bengel Tiger and Bengel Cobra. Both of them are quickly killed off by Sharivan's Crime Buster and their data was used to created Shouri Beast. Bengel Tiger's powers include mines, a sword, cloaking, hand flames called the Bengel Fire, explosive thread, and a bowie knife. Bengel Cobra's powers include mines, a spear, cloaking, hand flames called the Bengel Fire, explosive thread, and a wrist claw.
  • Makai Beasts (魔怪獣 Makaijū?): Monsters created by Psycho and usually have a two-mode gimmick. During a fight with Sharivan, a Makai Beast retreats into the Phantom Dream World where it becomes four times more powerful in an attempt to get the upper hand against Sharivan.
