Jupiter (ジュピター, given the civilian name Shinya Takeda Jupitā) (武田 真也 is a Takeda Shin'ya)kaijin created by Toho that first appeared in episode 1 of the 1988 tokusatsu kaiju show, Cyber Cop titled The Strongest Cop! Jupiter is Born.
Design[edit | edit source]
Jupiter has black and grey under armor, covered in white and orange armor. He has long armored boots and a broad chest with "POLICE" stamped on it. His lower arms are black like part of his under armor. His face is orange with white areas and the rest of his head is white. His eyes are a dark yellow color and he has a horn on his forehead that resembles a Japanese Rhino Beetle's horn. The horn on his forehead is white and it can flip down. Finally, he has white wing-like objects on his back which can flip outwards to enable flight.
History[edit | edit source]
Originally thought to just be an average man, Jupiter was brought to the Cybercop division in the hopes of finding out about his past, which for unknown reasons he couldn't remember. It is found out that Jupiter is actually from the future, but was brought to the year 1999, along with fellow Cybercop Lucifer and villain Baron Kageyama through a time-space portal fend which opened after Babylon Tower's explosion in the 23rd century. Whilst living in the 23rd century, Jupiter acquired a more advanced version of the Cybercop division's Bit Suits which was brought with him through the same portal. This project led him to be trained as one of the Cybercops, and was recruited as a member of the Zero-Section Armed Constable. Although technically just a rookie, Jupiter is trusted to be the leader of ZAC, most likely because of his far superior armor.
Weapons[edit | edit source]
As a Cybercop, Jupiter has his own unique Bit Suit as well as a signature weapon assigned to the suit.
Jupiter Bit Suit[edit | edit source]
The Jupiter Bit Suit is Jupiter's unique Bit Suit. Just like its owner, the Jupiter Bit Suit comes from the 23rd century but was brought to 1999 through a wormhole. Because of this, it is the most technologically advanced Bit Suit in the ZAC.
Cyber Thunder Arm[edit | edit source]
Jupiter's signature weapon is the Cyber Thunder Arm, which is an attachment to his right arm, similar to a gauntlet. It is summoned through a process called Cyber Bombing which opens a dimensional portal for the weapon to come through. Once summoned, the Cyber Thunder Arm can perform a multitude of attacks and abilities including:
Rolling Charger[edit | edit source]
When the Cyber Thunder Arm is rotated continuously, it begins to store energy. This energy source can be tapped into for any subsequent attacks.
Hyper Attack[edit | edit source]
Using some of the energy stored in the Cyber Thunder Arm, Jupiter can perform the Hyper Attack, where he delivers a strong punch to the opponent's chest.
Hyper Storm[edit | edit source]
Differing only slightly from the Hyper Attack, Hyper Storm is another direct hit to its target.
Hyper Laser[edit | edit source]
The Hyper Laser is a concentrated beam of energy from the Cyber Thunder Arm which can destroy an enemy immediately.
Thunder Laser[edit | edit source]
Similar to the Hyper Laser, the Thunder Laser is another concentrated beam of energy. However, it is used to slash the opponent like a sword rather than as a projectile.
Thunder Magnum[edit | edit source]
The Thunder Magnum is one of Jupiter's final attacks and is used almost exclusively after the Rolling Charger.
Cyber Shockwave[edit | edit source]
The Cyber Shockwave is a wave of energy emitted from the Cyber Thunder Arm, which penetrates the body of an attacker and ravages their body from the inside leaving them paralyzed and open to another attack. This is Jupiter's most powerful ability.
Giga Thunder Arm[edit | edit source]
When Jupiter's Cyber Thunder Arm and Lucifer's Gigamax are combined, the two Cybercops can perform the Giga Thunder Arm, which creates a giant burst of energy that opens a time-space portal directly to the 23rd century. This was only used once in the series to bring Jupiter, Lucifer, and Tomoko Uesugi to the future.
