The Brainwave Control Device (脳波コントロール装置,   Nōha Kontorōru Sōchi) is a mind-control device first used by the Virasians in the 1968 Daiei film Gamera vs. Viras.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

In Gamera vs. Viras, the Brainwave Control Device is a round object patterned similarly to the Virasian UFO with concentric yellow circles. It is comprised of two units, a spherical device which attaches to the target to be controlled, and a control panel within the UFO itself.

In Gamera: Super Monster, the device’s design is very different; it is silver in color, and shaped like a flattened cone.

History[edit | edit source]

Showa era[edit | edit source]

Gamera vs. Viras[edit | edit source]

After Gamera managed to release Masao and Jim from the Virasian UFO's Super Catch Ray, the Virasians used the minutes they had left to study Gamera's memories using their Videotron device. Learning of Gamera's desire to protect children, the aliens opted to use this aspect of the monster's personality against him, and quickly flew towards the scout camp where Masao and Jim were, abducting the two humans. After warning Gamera that they had taken the children hostage using the UFO's Brainwave Decryption Device and that they would execute them should he attempt to destroy the UFO as he had done to the first expedition force, the Virasians instructed Gamera to follow them towards a secluded location. There, it was decided to fully take control of Gamera, and the Brainwave Control Device was unveiled. After the UFO subdued Gamera with shots of its laser beam, the Brainwave Control Device was shot at Gamera, attaching to the back of his neck. With Gamera under control, the Virasians ordered the monster to destroy Okumusashi Dam and numerous locations in Tokyo, but their control over him was severed when the humans reversed the polarity of the device's control panel, causing Gamera to disobey. The device itself later exploded after Gamera began attacking the UFO, fully freeing him from its control.

Gamera: Super Monster[edit | edit source]

Appearing through stock footage, the device is used again, this time by the unseen captain of the Zanon. Once again, Gamera attacks and destroys a dam, but the device is broken once more, this time by the Spacewomen.
