The Brave Command Dagwon (勇者指令ダグオン Yuusha Shirei Daguon?) is a 1996 Brave Series, created by Sunrise under the direction of Akira Oguro and Tetsuya Yanagisawa, and is the 7th entry funded by Takara and created & produced by Sunrise.

Earth is the target of the former Sargasso prisoners who took over the prison asteroid and attack our planet. To counter this, Brave Seijin (Starman, more commonly alien) chose six (initially, only five; Geki joins later on) youngsters from Earth to receive the DagBraces and turn into Dagwon, the alien aequivalent to "brave". Rai, the seventh member of the team, is an alien officer who may possibly be the support Brave Seijin claimed there was no time to call upon when the invasion began. Because of this unfortune, Brave Seijin resorted to enlisting human beings to act as their own planet's defense.

Drawing inspiration from Super Sentai, the youngsters can don battle suits by activating their DagBraces (DagCommander in Japan) with the voice command "Try Dagwon!", which grant them pseudo-elemental powers and attacks as well as amplified physical power and advanced protection. If that is not enough, they have personal vehicles at their disposal which can turn into humanoid robots. Through Assimilation Combination (融合合体 Yugo Gattai?), they assimilate their DagMachines and control their humanoid forms as if they were their own bodies. If even greater power is needed, the heroes can then merge with additional auxiliary units (DagFire & DagThunder), with subordinates (DagShadow), or even with each other (Express Command) to create more powerful forms.

In addition to the heroes, other friendly alien allies arrive to aid their quest. Lian, last survivor of his race, the Sword Seijin, who assume swords, opens up his heart to working with others and joins the team as their first ally (although he only stays on Earth so that he can ultimately kill Arch Seijin). Gunkid, who can take on the form of a jet, a tank or the powerful Mugen Ho (Infinity Cannon) for Fire Dagwon's, and later Power Dagwon's, use, was initially on Sargasso's side before he decided to help the Dagwon team. Lian proceeded to become the teacher of Gunkid.


Dagwon consists of 48 episodes, first aired on Nagoya TV from 3/2/96 to 25/1/97. It's success warranted the two-episode OVA "The Boy with Crystal Eyes", which came out in September 1997, the same year GaoGaiGar aired. The show is, as of October 2007, not licensed in the US.

It is interesting to note that, despite the series' lack of popularity among children due to its theme of young adults enlisted to fight against evil, Dagwon found an audience among young females, who enjoyed the bishonen main characters.

Enemy Aliens (main characters)Edit

Arch SeijinEdit

The main villain of the first season. Destroyed Lian`s home world, and the reason for the Sword Seijin coming to Earth. Slain in a one-on-one duel with Lian, who then leaves Earth.

The youngest of the brothers, and first to appear in the series. Only brother to have a humanoid form. Killed by Brave Seijin.


The middle brother. He is the strongest of the three brothers, and lead a raid on DagBase toward the end of the series. Killed by the first (and only) use of the "Power Lio Sword" (Power Dagwon wielding Lian).


The eldest of the brothers. In a way, he is the "head honcho" of the three. Extremely loyal to Genocide (but then again, so are most of the villains of the series, save Gunkid). Killed by the first (and again, only use) of the "Triangle Christmas Beam" (the combined power of Super Fire Dagwon, Lian, and Gunkid).


The reason behind the Sargasso prison break. Can control any machinery (he even controls some of the members of the team, like DagTurbo and Lian, in the episode he is introduced in). However, he is killed by Super Fire Dagwon, who almost kills himself in the process.
