Tokusou Exceedraft is the tenth entry in the Metal Heroes franchise, airing from 1992-1993. It is the third part of its Rescue Heroes trilogy, though its connection to the previous two series is minimum at best.

The story centers on another rescue team, the Exceedraft team. Their all-human members, Hayato, Kosaku, and Ken team-up to strike at disasters that grip their fair city.

The main heroes are:

  • Hayato Kano/DraftRedder: The Hero.
  • Kosaku Muraoka/DraftBlues: Smart Lancer.
  • Ken Okuma/DraftKeacenote : The Big Guy who is a trained Martial Artist. He is also the youngest member on the team.


Tokusou Exceedraft provides examples of the following tropes:

  • BFG: HeavyCyclone
  • Big Bad: Nope. There is no main villain organization. However, the gang must go up against a group called Red Spade occasionally. Still, they're recurring villains as opposed to the force behind everything in the series; for the most part, the stories stand alone like the previous two series.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: "Jisso!" ("Boot Up", at least according to fansubs; other fansubs translate it as "Implement".) However, they just say it when turning the key to the compartment that holds the suits, which they must then put on manually.
  • Cool Car: Varias 7, Redder's personal car, a modified Chevrolet Corvette C4, that is equipped with various modes and weapons.
  • Cop Show
  • Laser Blade: E.M Blade, Redder's personal close-combat weapon.

  • Law of Chromatic Superiority/Mid-Season Upgrade: Hayato is later upgraded to SyncRedder.
  • Power Armor: All three heroes have them.
  • Rescue
  • Retool: Around mid-series, Toei decides to go back to the sci-fi angle with an odd plot about an alien hunter seeking help from the Exceedraft team seeking his nemesis, Carlos. Then there's a plot involving Draftredder vs. Satan.... Afterwards the team fights a lot of laser-spewing enemies.


How well does it match the trope?
