Space Sheriff Sharivan was the second of Toei's Metal Heroes series, and the second of the Space Sheriff trilogy.
As told in an episode of his predecessor's show, forest patrolman Den Iga was attacked by a monster of the Makuu Empire and gravely injured. He is saved by Gavan, who sends him off to the Bird Planet for treatment. Den returns the favor in the last episode when it's revealed, off screen, that he received Space Sheriff training by the Galactic Union Patrol and is now Sharivan!
Sometime after that, the evil Madou Empire, led by the evil Demon King Psycho, arises to conquer Earth. To defeat them, Sharivan and his sidekick Lilly must take action.
