File:200px-Robot Taekwon V 1976.jpg

In short: Another Korean ripoff of another mecha show, that grew the beard and made something of itself.

Robot Taekwon V (released in America as Voltar The Invincible) was a 1976 South Korean animated film that inspired many sequels and comic books. In Japan it's known as a Mazinger Z ripoff, but the creator Kim Cheong-gi freely admits that it directly inspired him.

An Mad Scientist named Dr. Kaff builds giant robots to kidnaps world-famous athletes to use their powers to Take Over the World. Dr. Kim makes a super robot to fight Dr. Kaff's robots. His eldest son Kim Hoon, a young taekwondo champion, must use his martial arts skills to pilot it. He is joined by his Action Girlfriend Yoon Yeong in the fight against evil. It follows a few kids finding a Humongous Mecha that could adapt in any environment and can be used as a tool for keeping the galaxy at peace.

Video sequels are still being made today.
