Super Hero Theme Songs: The Rescue Mission Series

The Rescue Mission series is a subset of the metal hero series, itself a subset of henshin heroes.  Henshin means transforming, and metal heroes were characterized by shiny shiny armor.  The first was Gavan in 1982, itself part of the Space Sheriff Series.

The unique thing about the rescue mission series is that they didn’t face a monster of the week, but had to resolve an emergency of the week.  Sometimes these involved super powered machines or terrorists, but monsters weren’t the main enemy.
