''Sei Juushi Bismarck'' is the story of four space explorers stationed on Ganymede, a moon of Jupiter. Their goal is to protect our solar system from the Deathcula imperium.

Although not as popular as the {{Macekre}}d GagDub version ''Anime/SaberRiderAndTheStarSheriffs'', it is more sophisticated, and '''does''' have action figure toys in its own country.
* BigRedButton: Shinji's console has the button that converts the Bismarck from space cruiser to giant robot.
* CasanovaWannabe: Bill Willcox, [[spoiler:although he proposes to a woman named June]].
* CombiningMecha: In a way, the Bismarck.
* CommanderContrarian: Bill to Shinji.
* CoolPlane: The Arrow Striker.
* CoolTank: The Road Leon.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Shinji Hikari
** TheLancer: Bill Wilcox
** TheBigGuy: Richard Lancelot.[[note]]Although WEP's "version" would have one think otherwise. In that version, Richard was portrayed as "The Hero" (he was the "Saber Rider" of the title).[[/note]].
** TheChick: Marian Louvre
** [[MentorArchetype The Mentor]]: Charles Louvre
* HeroicSacrifice: Shinjiro Hikari, Shinji's father, who saved the galaxy from the Deathcula's first invasion 15 years before the series took place.
* {{Macekre}}: One of the earliest examples. Episodes were produced out of order. "Saber Rider" wasn't originally the leader (it was "Fireball"), and some episodes were either removed or replaced with completely different episodes that didn't exist in the Japanese version.
* MonsterOfTheWeek
* {{Ninja}}
* ParentalAbandonment: Shinji's and Bill's parents are ''DEAD!!!!'' Marian has only her father still alive. Only Richard has '''both''' parents still alive.)
* RedOniBlueOni: Shinji is the Red oni while Richard is the Blue oni; although Bill has the blue armor, he's sort of in between.
* ReluctantWarrior: Marian: [[spoiler:When she first shot a Deathcula marine, she was disgusted.]]
* TeamDad: Dr. Charles Levore.
* TitleConfusion: Many viewers referred to the series as ''Anime/SaberRiderAndTheStarSheriffs'', although Creator/WorldEventsProductions did ''not'' use all the episodes.)
