NotesEdit

  • While it has been claimed that Armor Hero is a direct answer to Japan's Kamen Rider, the series contains elements more closer to the Metal Heroes franchise.
    • The concept of Armors being a plot device is also reminiscent of anime such as Saint Seiya and Ronin Warriors.
  • In China, most of the time the official English name is Armor Hero: Legend of Heroes (铠甲勇士之英雄传奇 Kǎi Jiǎ Yǒng Shì Zhī Yīng Xióng Chuán Qí)
