First header[edit]

Would it be a good idea to create a new page for this and list all shows there and a few of the most popular here? Philip Nilsson 09:49, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Basic Characteristics: "However, in the 1990's a renaissance in the Super Robot genre occurred, most of it after the success of Neon Genesis Evangelion, a series which used the Super Robot show premise and ideas with a new depth and sophistication in its plot. This led to more recent anime series and OVAs like Zeorymer Hades Project, and Giant Robo that the basic concept of Super Robot shows and combined it with storylines that were more complex, profound, and leaning toward ambiguity between heroes and villains."

Hades Project Zeorymer and Giant Robo predate Neon Genesis Evangelion. Evangelion came out in Japan in 1995, Giant Robo in 1992, and Zeorymer in the late 80's.

neon genesis evangelion[edit]

it should be removed from this list since the EVAs aren¡t robot but androids o better said living things with armor attached to it i removed it myself but here it is what it said

"* Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995)" ", as well as progressive attempts at the genre such as the controversial Neon Genesis Evangelion" "Another notably addition to the Bandai SOC line are the EVA units from the more recent Evangelion anime series."

Neon Genesis Evangelion is too much of a mixed bag to put in either the Super Robot or Real Robot categories, it blends elements of both genres and is generally hard to categorize, that and the fact the Evangelion Units themselves aren't technically robots (they are however, still considered Mecha) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nightmare X (talkcontribs) 13:39, 28 December 2006 (UTC).[reply]

Code Geass[edit]

Code Geass is super robot? Mecha isn't even that central to the show, and even then its closer to the real robot genre. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Agent Low (talkcontribs) 13:36, 30 October 2007 (UTC)[reply]


As the title is just a genre, not a proper name as far as I can tell, I believe it should be uncapitalized (see WP:NC). It seems to have been left capitalized since its creation, and there has been no comment one way or another here, so I'm assuming it won't be controversial if I just make the move, per the guideline I mentioned above. The term should probably also be lower-case when used throughout the article, but I won't make those changes quite yet, in case there's some disagreement. --Fru1tbat 20:17, 20 February 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Super Sentai?[edit]

It seems to me that, while not anime, the mecha/zords in Super Sentai/Power Rangers fit into the super robot genre and deserve a mention in the article. Do you agree? SpectrumDT (talk) 13:38, 21 December 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I don't see why not . - R.G. (talk) 16:02, 21 December 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Mech just not focus in Super Sentai series. While it worth mention, it need to note that there are Super Robot Tokusatsu show like Giant Robo or Red Baron (both got remade in anime later) and Super Sentai simply take that aspect into their show. Oh, and there are other genre of Tokusatsu like Metal Hero that feature Super Robot. L-Zwei (talk) 16:29, 21 December 2007 (UTC)[reply]
where should super robot wars machines would be? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:57, 13 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]
Some are reals and some are supers; however, because the Originals are no longer signifigant enough to merit even one page on Wikipedia, it's pointless to discuss them. Kouban (talk) 05:29, 14 March 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Brave Raideen[edit]

wasnt brave raideen made by Yoshiyuki Tomino creator of the gundam series, aura battler dunbine, overman king gainer etc —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:53, 17 October 2010 (UTC)[reply]

BIG O[edit]

Wouldn't Big O be closer to Real Robot? Yes it's origins are a mystery but as shown in the second season Norman and and a very large team Repair and Rearm Big O after every battle. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:40, 22 November 2010 (UTC)[reply]

I've removed the lists as there were no reliable sources given that verified whether those series are "Super Robot" series or not. I also question whether such a list is even beneficial to the understanding of the topic. —Farix (t | c) 17:16, 26 November 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Magic Knight Rayearth[edit]

I think Magic Knight Rayearth's Mashin (Selece, Windam and Rayearth) could be classified as Super Robots, albeit their supernatural origin. (talk) 17:13, 28 August 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Requested move 4 February 2016[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: No consensus to move. This is a bit all over the place. Some people favour Super Robot, some Super robot, and others still Super robot (genre). As SmokeyJoe says, there are precious few sources available on which to evaluate this, so no real way to determine correct consensus. Leaving as is, and suggest possibly an AfD may be in order if there are really no sources out there. (non-admin closure)  — Amakuru (talk) 15:19, 16 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Super RobotSuper robot – The name of this genre is not a proper name. Per WP:NCCAPS, it should not be capitalized like one. (talk) 20:07, 4 February 2016 (UTC) (talk) 20:07, 4 February 2016 (UTC)[reply]

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.


What about references, it still has none and it's a big page. Can someone find some. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dessertdesert (talkcontribs) 03:19, 15 April 2016 (UTC)[reply]

@Dessertdesert: That’s the idea behind the template added two years ago saying, “This article does not cite any sources.” You are more than welcome to add any references you can. — (talk) 02:15, 3 May 2016 (UTC)[reply]
