PlotEdit

While reading the Galactic Bible, the space hermit Eijin learns of a shocking prophecy: When the dark god Satan Gorth awakens, the universe will be ravaged by giant monsters filled with rage. After Satan Gorth appears and the prophecy is set in motion, Eijin orders Juspion, who Eijin has been tutoring, to stop him and combat the corrupted MegaBeasts. Juspion travels with his friends across the galaxy in the Daileon to battle Satan Gorth and his army.

CharactersEdit

Daileon crewEdit

Based from the silver Super Planetary Battleship Daileon (超惑星戦闘母艦ダイレオン, Chō Wakusei Sentō Bokan Daireon), Juspion travels across worlds to pursue Satan Gorth. When facing a rampaging MegaBeast, Juspion converts Daileon into the Super Planetary Combat Giant Daileon (超惑星戦闘巨人ダイレオン, Chō Wakusei Sentō Kyojin Daireon) to defeat MegaBeasts with its Cosmic Crash double punches.

    A baby alien creature found by Juspion and Anri on planet Beezee when her parents were killed saving them from the native hunters. Soon after, Juspion adopts Miya as pet. She is very friendly, intelligent, sociable and excellent cook. She originally doesn't speak, sometimes only repeating her name, until Anri teaches her to speak properly beginning in episode 22.

    Juspion's silver tank, which splits into the Garbin Tank with twin drills and the Garbin Jet.

AlliesEdit

  • Eijin (エジン, Ejin)
    A space hermit and scientist, Eijin is the descendant of prophets who defended the Galactic Bible for millennia. While raising Juspion, he serves as Juspion's spiritual guide and mentor. He sacrifices his own life at the end of the series by confronting Satan Gorth alone to give Juspion the time he needed to find the "Galactic Tarzan".
  • Boomerang (ブーメラン, Būmeran) (6-10, 12, 31 and 32)
    After his older brother, an Interpol investigator, was killed by Satan Gorth's forces, this medical student vowed revenge and became an International US Marshal, fighting with his twin boomerangs.
  • The Nanbara Family (15-20, 22, 24; 25-27, 35-40 42, 44-46)
    Photographer Kenichirou Nanbara (南原 健一郎, Nanbara Ken'ichirō), his older daughter Kanoko Nanbara (南原 かの子, Nanbara Kanoko) and his younger son Kenta Nanbara (南原 健太, Nanbara Kenta) became closely linked with Juspion when Kenichirou took a photo of the Golden Bird. It turned out that Kanoko was one of the five children chosen by the Golden Bird to house its power until the time comes.
  • Gary and Anna (ケーリーとハンナ, Kērī to Hanna) (18)
    Juspion's biological parents, they worked for the health of animals across the galaxy. Gary was an animal caretaker for the Galactic Federation while Anna was a zoologist. They were both killed when their wrecked spaceship, attacked by Zanba, fell on Eijin's Planet. They both reappeared as spirits to help Juspion defeat Zanba.
  • The Golden Bird (黄金の鳥, Ōgon no Tori)
    The guardian phoenix god of the galaxy, a manifestation of the energies of righteousness. The bird scattered itself into seven lights that choose Juspion, Kanoko, along with four other children, and a baby born from the light to serve as its vessels until all seven are brought together so that Golden Bird can leave their bodies and become whole again for the final battle with Satan Gorth, turning itself into a Golden Sword (黄金の剣, Ōgon no Tsurugi) used by Daileon to slay Super Satan Gorth.
  • Tarzan (ターザン, Tāzan) (46)
    A baby mentioned in a prophecy in the Galactic Bible born from one of the seven lights of the Golden Bird, he landed on Earth, sleeping in a life support pod, as the sole survivor of a spaceship attacked by pirates. Juspion saw himself in the baby and named it Tarzan, adopting the child after Super Satan Gorth's defeat.

MegaBeast EmpireEdit

  • Satan Gorth (サタンゴース, Satangōsu)
    A being born of the negative energy of the cosmos, the great god-demon whose revival was foretold in the Galactic Bible with the power to enrage the creatures, turning then in vicious monsters. Satan Gorth's objective is to create a MegaBeast Empire in the galaxy and rule it from the Planet of the MegaBeasts. Originally a giant pupil stage resembling a cross between Darth Vader and Megatron, in the endgame arc, Satan Gorth reaches the peak of his power and molts to become Super Satan Gorth (大サタンゴース, Dai Satangossu), possessing a Cthulhu-like appearance and the power to bend nature to his will, turning cities into forests overnight. He was defeated by the Daileon Cosmic Harley (ダイレオンコズミックハーレー, Daireon Kozumikku Hārē) attack where Daileon brandished a Golden Sword created by the Golden Bird in the final episode.
  • Mad Gallant (マッドギャラン, Maddogyaran) (4-45)
    The son of Satan Gorth's and his heir to the MegaBeast Empire. Juspion's antagonist throughout the series, he is capable of fighting him with his sword (similar to Juspion's) and with his black VTOL 6-legged insectoid walker/plane. He wears a reminiscent black Metal-Tech suit similar to Juspion's and can take on human form. Mad Gallant is destroyed once by Juspion in the episode 29, but is soon resurrected by Gilza; in the penultimate episode of the series he has a climatic final battle with Juspion. After being badly injured by Juspion in this battle and furious by refusing to admit that a "mere human" could be stronger than a super life-form, he turns himself into a giant Satan Gorth for a few moments, similar to his father's first form, and tries to attack the hero, but due to being previously wounded he returns to his original form and dies right after.
  • Amazonesses (アマゾネス, Amazonesu) (10)
    Two revived Amazon women created under Mad Gallant's rule in order to locate the long-extinct Pirazar and revive it as a weapon against Juspion.
  • The Four Evil Warlords (悪の四天王, Aku no Shitennō)
    The hirelings of Mad Gallant.
    • Ikki (イッキ) (13-15)
      The top-ranking ruthless bodyguard in the galaxy. Born in a planet located at the other extreme of the galaxy, he was the first enemy in the entire series to be killed via Juspion's fatal attack Cosmic Halley. His main weapon was a trident who could blow fire from its bottom tip, and he could also fire his own clenched fists like jet-propelled explosive projectiles.
    • Zanba (ザンパ, Zanpa) (13-18)
      Evil android who wrongly blamed Gary and Anna for immobilizing the Galactic Federation against him and destroying his Machine Empire. As revenge, Zanba attacked Juspion's family's spaceship, forcing a disastrous crash land which killed them both, leaving only Juspion to survive. His main weapon was a kusarigama, and he transformed into his android form with superior strength and endurance, and ability to fire concussive lasers from his eyes, but even so Juspion managed to destroy him, thus avenging his deceased family.
    • Brima (ブリマ, Burima) and Gyol (ギョール, Gyōru) (13-44)
      The two women who became Mad Gallant's personal bodyguards after Ikki's and Zanba's deaths by Juspion. Brima is a dark prophet with white clothing and a ball-shaped helmet, her main weapons were a crystal ball and occasional magic daggers; Gyol is a spy and disguise master clad in basic red and black space armor, her main weapon was a combination of spear/flute/blowgun, not only could she shoot the blade on the end forward to explode against Juspion, but she could also play a tune on it to transform herself and others into different forms (such as disguising herself into a bird to spy on others, or to turn other people into animals to get this one boy to use his skills to draw Juspion being defeated). She could also use the flute to control others' minds but as a result of Juspion's power armor he was immune to her flute, however she could cause him to suffer vertigo so as to teleport herself and others to safety. In their final appearance their weapons were destroyed by Juspion, resulting in them magically combining themselves into a wolf-beast form to attack Juspion, who defeated the beast with his Cosmic Halley fatal attack, killing both.
  • Zamurai (ザムライ) (19)
    A sea coral-shielded seal-faced samurai warrior who lived deep in the sea since his imprisonment 900 years ago - in a flashback explaining that time, under his real name Tokifusa Unno, Zamurai planned to kill respected general Minamoto no Yoritomo for the Heikei in exchange for a huge reward, but he was defeated by Minamoto and was imprisoned in the sea, bringing forth his current story; back to present day, he and Mad Gallant worked on a plan to create dolphin missile-launchers to destroy submarines and battleships around the world in exchange for control over the MegaBeast Empire's dolphin farm. Zamurai fights with a spear and hidden swords, and was practically leeching off of Seablur's lifeforce.
  • Girarist (ギラリスト, Girarisuto) (20)
    A mariachi-looking space murderer (with his own Mexican-sounding background music). He lured Juspion into a cave to study all of the hero's weapons and powers in order to kill and entomb him forever. Girarist was the only villain in the whole series not to die at Juspion's hands (it is even uncertain if Girarist is really dead after the cave collapsed on him).
  • Enchantress Chikita (魔女千北, Majo Chikita) (22)
    Brima's teacher of dark arts, she placed a curse on Kanoko to try to discover where the Golden Bird is. She had many supernatural abilities, including powers of illusion and shooting spider webs from her hands to entangle Juspion. She also used her pet giant Spida to attack Juspion, aiding it by using her illusions to make impossible for any enemy to detect her true location. Juspion later discovered that Spida was an illusion made by Chikita and fired his Daileon Beam at it.
  • Gasami brothers (ガサミ兄弟, Gasami Kyodai)
    Space mercenary brothers who pillaged and destroyed several planets (amidst them Koko's planet Dodo). Gasami the Younger (ガサミ弟, Gasami Otōto) (25) is first terminated by Juspion; in a devilish attempt to avenge his brother, Gasami the Elder (ガサミ兄, Gasami Ani) (25-26) (along with MegaBeast Boga) tackles the hero and gets destroyed as well.
  • Cutie Girls (キューティーガールズ, Kyūtī Gāruzu) (27)
    A trio of young evil women composed of Cutie Ace (キューティーエース, Kyūtī Esu), Cutie Heart (キューティーハート, Kyūtī Hāto) and Cutie Queen (キューティークイーン, Kyūtī Kuīn). They were in charge of kidnapping young people and turning them into bestial creatures under Mad Gallant's control by draining their essence . Their true form is the Cerberus-like Triple-Faced Bestial Warrior (三面獣人戦士, Sanmen Jūjin Senshi).
  • AI-GER Man (アイガーマン, Aigāman) (28)
    An android with a western face who extensively studied Juspion's and Daileon's attributes in order to predict their attacks. He and his MegaBeast AI-GER could only be defeated when Juspion performed a new fighting move unknown to AI-GER Man, causing the latter's downfall.
  • Galactic Witch Gilza (銀河魔女ギルザ, Gingamajo Giruza) (29-36)
    An alien witch who was responsible of bringing Mad Gallant back to life when he was first defeated in battle by Juspion. Gilza is precisely an expert in curses and general dark arts. Gilza had successfully removed Juspion's soul with a potion but it was returned to him shortly after. She had with her an enchanted knife that was her focus in battle and used it to try to remove Juspion's soul during the last fight. Her knife was the only thing which could harm her and Juspion used it to weaken her and finally defeat Gilza with the Cosmic Halley attack.
  • Silk (シルク, Shiruku), Genga (ゲンガ), and Zauru (ザウル) (31)
    Three yakuza-styled mobsters (Silk is human while Genga and Zauru are his cyborg hirelings), hunted down incessantly by Boomerang for provoking several wars in the world. They allied Mad Gallant in a double, menacing plan of stealing gold bars from the Japan National Bank. This plan, however, was just to divert Juspion and US Marshal Boomerang's attention while Mad Gallant worked on his plan: to sink Japan's islands. Silk is perhaps the only human in the entire series to be defeated by Juspion's Cosmic Halley attack, perishing along with his two bodyguards.
  • Chip (チップ, Chippu) (32)
    An old alien scientist from Planet L who sells Helper Robots on Earth that are really lethal weapons working for Satan Gorth to rig bombs to people's appliances.
  • Alien Braggle (異星人 ブラグル, Iseijin Buraguru) (37)
    a reptilian-looking alien specializing in culinary arts, he created an evil duplicate of Miya in order to lure Juspion into a devious trap involving poisoned food. Braggle can fire small powerful energy orbs and fights with a rapier.
  • Gilmaza (ギルマーザ, Girumāza) (39-46)
    The "Specter Queen" of the Dark Galaxy and Gilza's elder sister, debuting shortly after Gilza's death. In order to receive some of Satan Gorth's evil power, Gilmaza infiltrated several planets across the universe and slowly caused the extinctions of these civilizations through futile strategies - such as, in Planet Zabos, by prophesizing the youth to the Church of Satan Gorth, corrupting them and causing the planet to spiral into crime; or, in Planet Sweet, by cleverly manipulating the leaders of East and West, leading them ultimately to nuclear war disguised as a sorceress. She died with Mad Gallant's foot soldiers, after Satan Gorth was killed and the energy he released vaporized them all. She has her Space Ninjas as her top soldiers.
  • Space Ninjas (宇宙忍者, Uchū Ninja)
    Gilmaza's top soldiers created through her black magic, they wear suits of black armor differing only in the color of their forehead plates (which name them after the element they represent, in a conception taken directly from Taoism). They all have two "default attacks" (a plasmic projectile with the same color of their forehead plates and a kind of "plasma sword", both channeled via their hands) and one peculiar fighting "special technique" (except for Water). They only revealed their true forms after having their heads split open by Juspion's Plasma Blazer Sword.
    • Space Ninja Fire (宇宙忍者 カ, Uchū Ninja Ka, Red forehead plate) (39-43)
      Apparently the group's leader. His "special technique" consists on him jumping above a jet of fire and then rushing into the enemy, strongly hitting him with an explosion; his true form is of a meteor/comet, referred to as the Fire Magma Shell, which fuels the Wind Cannon.
    • Space Ninja Wind (宇宙忍者 フウ, Uchū Ninja Fū, Yellow/Golden forehead plate) (39-43)
      His "special technique" is similar to Fire's but using wind instead of fire; his true form is of a cannon which springs out of his neck, referred to as the Wind Cannon, fueled by Fire Magma Shell.
    • Space Ninja Earth (宇宙忍者 ドウ, Uchū Ninja Dō, White/Silver forehead plate) (39)
      His "special technique" has him burrowing deep into the earth to provoke massive earthquakes or ambush careless enemies; his true form is of a flying skeletal centipede-like demon that has powerful jaws, can project plasma discharges and create a holographic illusion of itself with double size, thus increasing attack power.
    • Space Ninja Water (宇宙忍者 スイ, Uchū Ninja Sui, Blue forehead plate) (39 and 40)
      Unlike the other four ninjas, he never exhibited any "special technique" of his own, thus being limited to default attacks; his true form is of a kind of spiked satellite/steel orb which shoots powerful electric discharges and sticks physically into any surface to drain energy through physical contact.
    • Space Ninja Wood (宇宙忍者 モク, Uchū Ninja Moku, Green forehead plate) (39-42)
      His "special technique" allows him to fire green gravity beams from his fingertips; his true form is of a space fighter wearing white clothing with a horrible demonic mask and fighting with a naginata, in similarity with a kabuki artist.
  • Tiger Joe (タイガージョー, Taigā Jō) (41)
    A bounty hunter whose reputation reached the Dark Galaxy that was brainwashed by Gilmaza to kill his best friend Juspion.
  • The MegaBeast Empire also is shown to have a rather diverse troop of unnamed foot soldiers.

Video ReleaseEdit

The official Toei video releases in the '80s listed in English, below the title, "Space Wolf Juspion" (named after the ending theme for instance). This has created some confusion and has led some to believe that is the actual title of the series and translation of "Kyojuu Tokusou." The Space Wolf name is simply one of Juspion's nicknames much like the "Galactic Tarzan" in order for him to have a title to introduce himself by. During Otakon 2018, Discotek Media announced that they had licensed the show for a one-disc SD on BD release.[4] The SD Blu-ray was released on August 27, 2019.
