Go! Godman (行け!ゴッドマン,   Ike! Goddoman) is a Japanese tokusatsu series produced by Toho that aired from October 5th, 1972 to April 10th, 1973. It succeeded Tsuburaya Productions' Redman on Good Morning! Kid's Show and a followup series, Go! Greenman, was also later produced.


In Go! Godman, one or more kaiju appear and menace Japan, until Godman, the show's titular hero, is called from his home planet by a person in peril calling for his name. He then defeats the monsters over the course of a few episodes. Each 'saga' was divided into 5 minute episodes to lengthen the show's battles out due to a limited budget.

  • Due to the limited budget, Toho used monsters that were seen in many of the Showa films, with their suits being reused for the show. These monsters included Gaira and Sanda, Gabara, Gorosaurus, Kamoebas and one of the Bat Men which was turned into a different monster, Bat Man.
    • Most of the monsters who appeared in Go! Godman would later appear in Go! Greenman alongside monsters from Assault! Human!!.
    • The show also featured kaiju developed for the show.
  • Often, the suits for the returning monsters were in bad condition, and some were extensively repaired.
    • In the show, Gaira and Sanda's suits received new masks.
    • A large cavity is easily observable in Gorosaurus' chest. The suit was so deteriorated he was permanently retired afterwards.
    • Gabara lacks his trademark ginger hair, his eyes appear to have a more confused expression, and his skin is a darker shade of green.
  • Aya Hirano, as Konata Izumi from the anime Lucky Star, sang this show's theme song on the Lucky Star music compilation CD.
