Formerly called Toei Douga until 1998. Toei Animation is the {{anime}} department of the ToeiCompany[[note]]which also has a {{toku}}satsu studio responsible for the ''SuperSentai'' (by which they have half-ownership of the ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' franchise) and ''Franchise/KamenRider'' franchises among other departments, but that's another story.[[/note]] and one of the oldest (it can trace its roots back to 1948) and largest animation companies. Toei is responsible for producing a large number of popular and EssentialAnime, including ''Anime/MazingerZ'', ''{{Devilman}}'', ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'', ''Franchise/DragonBall'', ''Anime/SailorMoon'', ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', ''Anime/PrettyCure'' and ''Manga/OnePiece''. In other words, it was responsible for defining the HumongousMecha, SpaceOpera, {{Shonen}}, and MagicalGirl genres as we know them today.

When the studio started in 1956, the studio did [[DoingItForTheArt mostly Disney-like art films, but based around native Japanese artwork]] and some stuff for Creator/RankinBass. Some people like IsaoTakahata (the director of ''Anime/GraveOfTheFireflies''), [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoichi_Kotabe Yoichi]] [[http://www.mariowiki.com/Yoichi_Kotabe Kotabe]] (mostly known for doing most of Creator/{{Nintendo}}[='s=] 2D artwork), [[TMSEntertainment Yasuo Otsuka]] and Creator/HayaoMiyazaki (Co-Founder of StudioGhibli) worked at Toei at this time. However due to [[MoneyDearBoy the staff members wanting more money]] and how the studio was going, many staff members left for other studios like TMSEntertainment (Namely A-Productions then later Telecom), NipponAnimation, and Creator/{{Topcraft}} (then later Creator/StudioGhibli).

They've also done a [[WesternAnimation/{{Jem}} bit]] [[WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs of]] [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero work]] [[Anime/HaloLegends on]] [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers American]] [[WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies cartoons]], but those are few and far between after the 1980s ended. They, along with Creator/TMSEntertainment, Creator/{{Sunrise}} and Creator/{{Sony}} also had a hand behind Anime channel Creator/{{Animax}}, as well as the website [[http://www.daisuki.net Daisuki]] (the second venture also in partnership with Nihon Ad Systems, Dentsu, Asatsu-DK).

!! Tropes associated with Toei:
* AllCGICartoon: A couple, Two of them handled in China (One by ImagiAnimationStudios and one in Taiwan by WangFilmProductions (through [=CGCG=])).
* AnimationBump: Happens in any (if not all) of their movies.
* CashCowFranchise: '''IN SPADES''', but ''One Piece'', ''Franchise/SailorMoon'', ''Dragon Ball'', ''Transformers'', ''Digimon'' and ''Pretty Cure'' are the most prominent.
* ConspicuousCG: Has been becoming more obvious since 1999 or so.
* DoingItForTheArt: The films Toei did during 1958 to 1972.
* {{Filler}}: Very often, especially in ''Dragon Ball Z''.
* LimitedAnimation: Fairly common, due to producing [[LongRunners long-running series]] (and relatively shorter series during those long-runners). The majority of their American projects, too.
* LongRunners: Most of the series mentioned either had several incarnations or were continuously going on.
* {{Mascot}}: Pero, the titular character of the company's adaptation of ''Literature/PussInBoots'', serves as their official mascot.
** However; [[Manga/DragonBall Goku]], [[{{Anime/GoLion}} Go]] [[{{Anime/Voltron}} Lion]], Anime/MazingerZ, Anime/CuteyHoney, [[Manga/OnePiece Monkey D. Luffy]], [[Anime/DigimonAdventure Agumon]], Anime/SailorMoon herself and (to a much lesser extent) [[TransformersGenerationOne Optimus Prime]] can be considered to be honorary mascots.
* NoExportForYou: In recent years, Toei Animation has been quite reluctant to licence its work for foreign translation or rerelease, with ''Anime/SailorMoon'' having being hit particularly hard by this for quite a while. After the fate that befell ''One Piece'', you can't really blame them.
* OffModel: A frequent victim of this trope due to the fact that they end up producing incredibly [[LongRunners long-running series]], mostly at the same time as one another, rotating each around various animation teams of wildly varying quality.
