Like Anime and Manga, Toku is one of those terms that means slightly different things in Japan and the West. While Westerners use it to refer almost exclusively to the Japanese superhero shows, in Japan it simply refers to any live-action production which makes extensive use of special effects. This means that, to the Japanese, things like ''Series/{{Smallville}}'', ''Series/StargateSG1'', ''Series/DoctorWho'', ''Series/KnightRider'', ''Series/RedDwarf'' and even ''Film/JamesBond'' count as Toku. This list also includes shows that use puppetry, like Gerry Anderson's {{Supermarionation}} series ''Series/{{Thunderbirds}}'' and ''{{Series/Terrahawks}}'', and even ''ThomasTheTankEngine''. Far and away, the [[TropeCodifier most popular early example]] of Toku is the ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' film franchise, which exemplifies many of the genre's tropes: PeopleInRubberSuits smashing scale model cities, and an abundance of {{squib}}s.
