  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Many (or possibly all) of the tropes listed in this page's trope list need context. A list of tropes is not a description.
See ATT:ZCE for advice on how to fix this.

GEAR Fighter Dendoh is a 38-episode Super Robot Anime directed and written by Mitsuo Fukuda and Chiaki Morosawa, a husband and wife team more famous in America for Gundam SEED and Gundam SEED Destiny, along with Yasuko Kobayashi of Toku fame.

Dendoh tells the story of an Alien Invasion of Earth by mechanical aliens known as the Galfa and two elementary school kids, Hokuto Kusanagi and Ginga Izumo, who are chosen to fight them by a giant kung fu robot called Dendoh. As chosen pilots of mankind's last, best superweapon, they are recruited by the organization GEAR to etc. etc. etc.

As people familiar with Super Robot anime can tell by now, Dendoh is pretty standard for the genre, and intentionally so. Where it excels is in its storytelling - not being Strictly Formula in spite of its genre conventions - and its likeable cast of characters and their relationships. And of course, tons of Shout-Outs.

A sequel was planned at one point, but when that fell through the staff released plot details, character, and mecha designs onto the Internet for all to see.

Tropes used in GEAR Fighter Dendoh include:
