The Brave Raideen series is renowned in Japan as the first to include a giant robot whose origins are mystical rather than scientific; Raideen itself is in fact portrayed as a sentient being. Raideen is also historically noteworthy for being one of the first transforming giant robots (the eponymous hero of ''Series/AmbassadorMagma'' was an earlier character, although his transformation from robot to rocket ship was not a detailed mechanical transformation). The diecast toy version of Raideen, released in Japan in 1975 by Popy, was the first true transforming robot toy. Brave Raideen was the first anime mecha work of anime director and writer YoshiyukiTomino, better known as the creator of Gundam. The latter half was directed by Tadao Nagahama, and may be seen as a predecessor to his famous Romantic Trilogy, consisting of ''Anime/CombattlerV''[[note]]Pronounced "Combattler 'Vee'".[[/note]] , ''Anime/VoltesV''[[note]]Pronounced "Voltes '5'".[[/note]] and ''{{Anime/Daimos}}''.

This series was the second collaboration between writer/director YoshiyukiTomino and artist Yasuhiko Yoshikazu. The first work to feature both men was ''WanderingSun'' (Sasurai no Taiyō) (1971). The two would later team up again for both ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' and ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamF91 Gundam F-91]]''.

Despite the word "Yuusha" in the title, it has nothing to do with the later [[Anime/BraveSeries "Yuusha" series]] produced by {{Sunrise}}.

Added DiffLines:

* BadassBaritone: Especially evident when he calls "God" attacks, Akira's voice is way too deep and awesome for kid to have, but nobody cares because it's that awesome.

There were followup series in the 90s (''Chousha Raideen'', or ''Raideen the Superior'') and 2000s (simply titled ''REIDEEN'' and now animated by Creator/ProductionIG). ''Chousha Raideen'' was a GenreShift (to HenshinHero) featuring a [[FiveManBand Five Man]] BoyBand chosen to guard the secret of Reideen from the Chouma, a race of demons who seek to use the Super Robot to their own evil ends. ''REIDEEN'' is the story of Junki Saiga, a teenager whose family has come out into the country to identify the remains of his archaeologist father when he finds himself standing in the way of the powerful Reideen and a group of aliens to wish to steal it. ''REIDEEN'' is noted for a seemingly slow style of movement and combat that more realistically depicts the sheer size and mass of the mecha and {{robeast}}s.

** Midorino Akira in ''REIDEEN''. You would be forgiven if you confused her with [[RahXephon Reika Mishima]].

* SpiritualSuccessor: [[WordOfGod According to]] ''RahXephon'' [[WordOfGod director Yutaka Izubuchi]], the similarity of designs and powers of the title robots and the basic plots of RahXephon and Raideen are intentional...
** Taken beyond the logical conclusion in the fanfic ''FanFic/SupernaturalTaisen'', where Raideen and RahXephon are in fact one and the same.

* MakeMeWannaShout: '''GOD... VOIIICE! GOD... RA MUUUUUUUUUUUU!'''The '''God Voice'''. From the chest of Raideen, some satellite dishes are shown to amplify by several times Akira's voice, who screams "God Ra Mu". Extremely powerful purple sonic rings are launched from those satellite dishes, to entrap enemies and tear them apart at a molecular level. However, this attack has heavy repercussions to its pilot, Akira.
