Hurricane Polymar the show was created by Tatsuo Yoshida, who had produced many of Tatsunoko’s series.
Hurricane Polymar is the secret identity of Takeshi Yoroi, who wears a special suit which enables him to fight crime. The suit is made of memory plastic which enables him to assume any shape.
Early in Takeshi’s life he met Onigawara, the director of the International Secret Police Agency. Onigawara wanted to make Takeshi a top-notch criminal investigator. So he sent Takeshi to get special training which turned him into an all-around sportsman as well as martial arts expert. However, Takeshi’s attitude toward crime-fighting was so incompatible with Onigawara’s, that he disowned him.
For a while Takeshi investigated crime alone; then he became a private detective’s assistant and general handyman. However, Takeshi was tired of working on the side lines and not stoping criminals and he secretly obtained an artificial polymer from a scientist. The scientist called it polimet, and the polymar was far stronger than steel. With this polimet Takeshi transformed himself into Hurricane Polymer, an invincible costumed hero.
Polymar will be in Tatsunoko vs Capcom beating down the criminals with his special moves.
Wow, so I DO know characters of this game! Battle of the Planets and Crazy Genie, as they’re known down here in Brazil.
WHAAT?! They include these I’ve never heard of but leave out several that CAN fight easily without much help. The Samurai Pizza Cats would like a word with you Tatsunoko…
Wow!!!! Thanks for the post Infendo. I’m a huge Street Fighter fan and love the Capcom Vs. series games. I will be getting this game and my only wish was that I knew more about the Tatsunoko characters. So to whoever wrote this one, You are mega dragon punch awesome!!!!!!
Zachs, afraid it’s not that simple. Kyatto Ninden Teyandee was a joint effort, and the licensing for it is a mess, it was sadly never going to happen, same deal with Macross.
Amazingly, licensing issues have actually worked in /my/ favor here as well, as I hate that Genie with the fury of a thousand Foreman grills and he’s been axed for local release, hurrah!
Also thanks infendo, there were a couple here I wasn’t familiar with (polymar, yatterman & karas).
Whoa! Great post, Will. I know stuff now.
great post you filled in the gaps of the unknown characters for me. all i have to say though is i will never switch from karas if he moves like in the movie how can he be beat??? well maybe the golden zippo guy too
