''The Brave of Gold: Goldran'' is a Japanese anime television series that had begun in 1995, created by Sunrise. It was the sixth in the Anime/BraveSeries. ''Goldran'' follows the adventures of three young boys, Takuya, Dai, and Kazuki, who are tasked with finding alien robot fighters, or Braves, that are sleeping in the form of crystals known as Power Stones. Their enemy is the [[LargeHam flamboyant]] and [[LaughablyEvil thoroughly incompetent]] Prince Walter Walzac, and his henchmen are often [[AffablyEvil similarly humorous]]. The entire show is mostly focused on [[HilarityEnsues comedy]], almost to the exclusion of much in the way of storytelling, although the series has some running plotlines toward the end. ''Goldran'' was very popular in its time.
----
!!These are the following tropes:

* AffablyEvil: Most of the villains.
* AnAdventurerIsYou: Takuya and his gang go on adventures. Despite being ''12 years old.''
* BerserkButton: Try to kidnap and brainwash Dran's precious golden Godzilla, and he'll literally [[TheDeterminator claw his way out of the depths of hell to kick your ass.]]
* BlingBlingBang: Goldran himself is pretty much this.
* CaptainErsatz: One episode had the gang go to a place where clay figure beings live (The place is called Legendra), and the BigBad of the episode has clay versions of the Goldran mechs. The difference however, are the faces. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoPHIfP7KZM Clip here]].
* CerebusSyndrome: The show takes on a darker tone after Serious/Sirius Walzac becomes the new BigBad.
* CombiningMecha: Goldran, formed from the swordsrobot Dran and the golden dinosaur Golgon.
** Also, Leonkaizer and Silverion.
* CoolCar: Dran.
* CoolOldGuy: Colonel Sandgross.
* CoolPlane: Leon.
* CoolTrain: Advenger.
* TheDeterminator: You can blast Advenger with laser beams, nearly cut him in two, infect him with the Yuusha alternative of [[TheTransformers Cosmic Rust]], but you still won't be able to keep him down for long.
** Also, Dran.
* DinosaursAreDragons: Golgon representes "The Dragon" in the background of Goldran.
* EquippableAlly: Golgon, Kaiser, Sorakage, Advenger, Fire Silver.
* EyepatchOfPower: Captain Shark. He does have an eye underneath it, though.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Golgon.
* GagSeries: For the most part, anyway.
* GottaCatchThemAll: The first half of the series deals with Takuya, Dai, and Kazuki competing with Walter to get the Power Stones.
* HeelFaceTurn: Walter Walzac, the moment the new main villain came in the picture.
** Also, Serious after his [[AbusiveParents jerkass daddy]] tries to blow him to pieces with a planet-sized missile.
* HeyItsThatVoice: [[Anime/CodeGeass Lord Jeremiah "Orange" Gottwald]] is Goldran. And [[Creator/OmiMinami Princess Euphemia]] is Takuya.
** And [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Treize Kushrenada]] is Leon.
** [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]] [[PlayingAgainstType apparently likes being a red-headed idiot prince.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: A rare protagonistic example. In Serious Walzac's debut episode [[spoiler: the bad guys take control of Golgon and fuse him with Waldoran, an EvilTwin of Dran, to form Dark Goldran. Dark Goldran then proceeds to [[DiagonalCut cleave Dran from shoulder to hip with his own BFS.]]]]
* JidaiGeki: Japonesia in episode six is a mix of this and modern technology.
* [[KidHero Kid Heroes]]: Takuya and friends.
* [[KnightInShiningArmor Knights In Sliver Armor]]
* LargeHam: Walter.
* LaughablyEvil: Walter again.
* LighterAndSofter: To DenserAndWackier levels.
* MeaningfulName: "[[EmotionlessBoy Serious/Sirius]]" Walzac.
* MechaExpansionPack: Sorakage can become a flight pack for Goldran or Leonkaizer.
** Fire Silver is an armor add-on for Silverion, making God Silverion.
** Advenger can become a shoulder-mounted bazooka for Captain Shark.
* MechaMooks: Serious's soldiers. Might also apply to Walter's.
* {{Ninja}}: Sora-kage.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Captain Shark is a pirate shark battleship tank robot.
* PantheraAwesome: Kaiser.
* {{Pirate}}: Captain Shark. Also, the pirates from episode 9.
* PowerTrio: Takuya (Id), Dai (Ego), and Kazuki (Superego).
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: Not only are the Braves sentient, they can also get sick and [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs impregnate female robots.]]
** [[FridgeLogic WITH A SINGLE KISS!!!]]
* {{Samurai}}: Dran and Leon.
* ShoutOut: In the "Fake Braves" episode, when they're on their way to Legendra, it suspiciously looks like the Universal Studios logo.
* SixthRanger: Walter Walzac, after his heel face turn.
* TeamPet: [[CoolPet Golgon and Kaiser]].
* TerribleTrio: The thief Tiramisu Beauty and her two henchmen from episode 8.
