** OlderThanTheyThink: In Japan, the Tsuburaya [[Toku]] series Jumborg Ace featured the title robot having to be powered by human body movement. Granted, unlike many things South Korean's plagiarized, this series was-and still is-virtually unknown in South Korea but it is still worth noting.

''Robot Taekwon V'' (released in America as ''Voltar The Invincible'') was a 1976 South Korean animated film that inspired many sequels and comic books. In Japan it's known as a Anime/MazingerZ ripoff, but the creator Kim Cheong-gi freely admits that it directly inspired him and mentions that Mazinger Z is popular in South Korea.[[note]]It's also important to note that South Korean laws enacted in the Cold War forbade any South Korean from legitimately purchasing/obtaining Japanese-made media, including video games. The laws were removed in 1990 after Seoul and Tokyo began to establish and improve foreign relations between each other, with the exception of not allowing Japanese shows and music to be aired anywhere in South Korea. UsefulNotes/{{Seoul}}, however, has made suggestions that a gradual lifting of the ban will be done eventually. As of 2010s, there are no signs of a ban of Japanese media product left, minus some episodes of Kid's show being censored or localized when they contain too much Japanese traditions.[[/note]]

In short: A [[UsefulNotes/{{SouthKorea}} Korean]] ripoff of another mecha show, that [[GrowingTheBeard grew the beard]] and [[TropeMakers made something of itself.]] [[note]]It should be mentioned that Koreans today, especially the younger generation who are aware of the fact that this was a ripoff consider this a disgrace and criticize any kind of movement trying to paint it otherwise.[[/note]]
