Foreign releases

Brazilian release

Cyber Cop was imported to Brazil by the Sato Company under the title Cybercop, the Police of the Future (Cybercop, os Policiais do Futuro). It debuted on the now-defunct channel Rede Manchete as part of the television channel Clube da Criança on October 12, 1990. Dubbed in Brazilian Portuguese, the series earned high ratings and even had an exclusive tie-in comic book published in Heróis da TV magazine. The series was re-aired on CNT in 2000 and again on TV Diário in 2018.

Malaysian release

An English-dubbed version of Cyber Cop was released by Malaysian home video company Speedy Video. Six episodes were acquired by fan group The Apollo Dub Archive and made available for download in early 2021.[1]

U.S. release

Cyber Cop has never been officially released in the United States in any capacity. However, a full translation of the series was released by fansubber Metallic Fansubs in early 2021.[2]

A U.S. trademark on "CYBERCOPS" for use in motion pictures, video tapes, toys, games, and more was filed by Toho on May 17, 1994. However, no such merchandise was ever produced, and the trademark was abandoned by February 9, 1998.[3] Curiously, Hong Kong toy manufacturer Zima Products produced a line of American action figures based on Takara's Cyber Cop toys entitled "Power Force." The Zero-Section Armed Constable was renamed to Zero-Section Armed Police (ZAP) while Jupiter, Lucifer, Saturn, Mars, and Mercury's names were changed to Biotron, Blazord, Zortron, Destron, and Spectron, respectively. Whether these were intended as a tie-in to a cancelled TV adaptation is unknown.
