But history be damned, when somebody mentions Giant Robo today, they're not thinking of either of those... Okay, some people still think of ''Johnny Sokko and His Flying Robot'', but usually only if they grew up in TheSeventies. Nowadays, they're thinking of ''Giant Robo The Animation: The Day The Earth Stood Still'', one of the greatest - or at least the most completely ''[[CrazyAwesome insane]]'' - works to come out of the anime industry in the last 20 years.

An ([[CrazyAwesome unholy]]) amalgamation of Wuxia, Superheroes, Creator/RichardWagner, [[HumongousMecha Mecha Anime]] and pure insanity, ''Giant Robo: The Day The Earth Stood Still'' is notable for being an early and rather impressive example of the MassiveMultiplayerCrossover, formed when director Yasuhiro (''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'') Imagawa was told that he couldn't use any of the supporting characters from the manga or TV versions of the ''Giant Robo'' story. Struck by inspiration, he instead decided to instead take characters from the rest of original creator Mitsuteru Yokoyama's work, including ''Babel II'', ''Manga/SallyTheWitch'', ''Anime/RomanceOfTheThreeKingdoms'', ''Akakage'' and many others. To add to the effect he decided to draw them all in Yokoyama's classic 1960s style, along with a [[{{Zeerust}} retro-futuristic world]] populated by {{Ninja}}, ancient Chinese warriors, [[BadassInANiceSuit Sharp Suited Businessmen]] and {{Badass Longcoat}}s walking side by side.

* BittersweetEnding: One that traumatized a number of childhoods in the 60s and 70s, both in America and Japan. [[spoiler: Giant Robo defeats Guillotine, but his body is "a mass of atomic energy" that would destroy the Earth when he dies. To prevent this, Giant Robot grapples the Emperor and [[HeroicSacrifice flies him into space to explode harmlessly against a random rock]].]]
