Iron King (アイアンキング,Aian Kingu?) is a fictional hero of the Giant Hero archetype.
The Shiranui Clan have planned for 2000 years to conquer Japan in retaliation for their nomadic ancestors being banished from the country by the Yamato Clan (who eventually became known as the Japanese people). Each armored ninja-like member of the clan controls a gigantic robot warrior in order to overthrow the "Yamato Government," as they call it. In response to this terrorist threat, Japan's National Security Organization send agent Gentaro Shizuka, disguised as what can best described as a Spaghetti Western version of a singing cowboy, to stop their plans with the assistance of comical, mountaineering-clad Goro Kirishima. In an unusual direction for such tokusatsu programs, it is not the heroic but often surprisingly ruthless Gentaro but the bumbling, bespectacled Goro who has the power to become the giant cyborg Iron King. After defeating the Shiranui Clan, another group known as the Phantom Militia appears to take over Japan. The Phantom Militia robots are more dinosaur-like than the Shiranui Clan's humanoid robots. Later, aliens called the Titanians appear to take over Japan.
