The opening narration was “Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Ganbaron! Faster than a Shinkansen! Stronger than Kaiju!”[citation needed]

Similar to Tetsujin 28-go and Giant Robo, Ganbaron could call a giant robot named Daibaron (“big baron”). Unlike those two however, Daibaron was a combining robot similar to Getter Robo or Golion/Voltron.
