After the Winspector police team leaves Japan to fight crime in France, Chief Shunsuke Masaki realizes he must create a new police team to defend Tokyo from crime. He creates Solbrain – a high-tech special rescue force, expert in missions requiring rescue and firepower. Its leader is Daiki Nishio, a rookie detective who can use the Plus Up command in his car to transform into SolBraver. Other members are Reiko Higuchi, also able to use the Plus Up command to transform into SolJeanne, SolBraver's female counterpart; and SolDozer, a yellow bulldozer robot. Later in the series, the Winspector returns to Japan and teams up with Solbrain for a three-part story (episodes 21, 22 and 23). From episode 34 on, Ryouma Kagawa, the main protagonist of Winspector, returns as a member of Solbrain, wearing a solid suit dubbed the Knight Fire.

  • Solid Suit (ソリッドスーツ Soriddo Sūtsu?): Daiki, Reiko and Ryōma's armor.
  • Proto Suit (プロトスーツ Puroto Sūtsu?): The prototype of the SolBraver armor. Sasamoto stole it to destroy SolBraver, but the armor had a time limit, as Sasamoto was known as a psychotic person who had no qualifications to become the SolBraver.
  • SolGallop (ソルギャロップ Soru Gyaroppu?): Daiki's car, which was based on a Toyota Sera.
  • SolDrecker (ソルドレッカー Soru Dorekkā?): Reiko's car, which was also sometimes driven by Jun. It was based on a Toyota Previa.

  • Solid States Ⅰ (ソリッドステイツI Soriddo Suteitsu wan?): the mothership (abbreviated S.S.-I (エスエスワン Esu Esu Wan?)). S.S.-I takes off from Solid Hanger (ソリッドハンガー Soriddo Hangā?) in one minute.
  • Cerberus Delta (ケルベロスΔ Keruberosu Deruta?): SolBraver and Knight Fire's weapon. It has two operating modes: Shot Mode (ショットモード Shotto Mōdo?) (used as a ray gun) and Slash Mode (スラッシュモード Surasshu Mōdo?) (used, as a sword, to break obstacles such as girders and fighting enemies armed with knives).
  • BosWinder (ボスワインダー Bosu Waindā?): a tool which shoots a special carbon-fiber rope or a special bullet

  • Cuffs Lock (カフスロック Kafusu Rokku?): handcuffs
  • GigaStreamer (ギガストリーマー Giga Sutorīmā?): the only weapon Solbrain inherited from Winspector.
  • Pile Tornado (パイルトルネード Pairu Torunēdo?): SolBraver and Knight Fire's big gun, with three functions:
    • Super Discharger (スーパーディスチャージャー Super Disuchājā?): shoots a fire-extinguishing beam
    • Caulking Puncher (コーキングパンチャー Kōkingu Panchā?): shoots a special gelatinous, gluey freezing bullet
    • Tornado Burst (トルネードバースト Torunēdo bāsuto?): a hail of 40 plasma-energy bullets per second, fired by Cerberus Delta. Its power is three times that of GigaStreamer's maximum mode (when SolBraver and Knight Fire fire it at the same time, its power is four times that of the GigaStreamer).

Video Game

Main article: Tokkyuu Shirei Solbrain (video game)

A video game version of Tokkyuu Shirei Solbrain was released in 1991 for the Japanese company Family Computer, published by Angel and developed by Natsume. It is a modified version of Shatterhand, which was published by Jaleco for the Nintendo Entertainment System in North America and Europe shortly after the Japanese release. The differences are mainly cosmetic (changing graphics and plot) but there were also several substantial changes, such as which boss appeared in which area. In addition, the theme-park stage from the Famicom version was replaced with a nuclear-submarine stage in the NES version.



Philippine English Voice Cast

Like Choujin Sentai Jetman from the Super Sentai series, their Japanese names are retained and it was the very first Metal Hero series to be voiced in English instead of their native language from the previous Metal Hero series. The ensemble casts are also known to speak other characters aside from their main characters they have been played. The series was broadcasted by IBC-13 formerly known as VTV in the year 2000 and it was replayed in Solar channel on 2002.
