Super Robot is a sub-genre of mecha anime revolving around having robots with fantastical powers, hot-blooded characters and monster of the day plots.

Overview

Super robot was the original sub-genre of the mecha anime genre created, first created in 1958 with the mecha anime Tetsujin 28-go. Mecha within this series are known to be invulnerable to harm unless required of the plot, possess an unlimited potential for fantastical powers and usually have the ability to combine in order to form larger and more powerful mecha. The genre is known to feature hot-blooded pilots, grand-scale plots, settings within fantasy-based or post-apocalyptic worlds and monster of the day style plots that build up to a greater evil threat eventually being revealed. A number of modern implementations of mecha anime will combine story elements and concepts of super robot and real robot anime to create a series that blurs the line between both sub-genres, this notably being the case with Gainax's hit mecha series Neon Genesis Evangelion.
