A "demo" version was sung by GaoGaiGar series music director Kouhei Tanaka with synthesizer accompaniment in 1996 during the show's production. It was likely recorded as a proof-of-concept for the director Yoshitomo Yonetani. This version (known officially as "Yuusha-Oh Tanjou! -Demo Tape-") is found on the GaoGaiGar-related album Yuusha-Oh Tanjou! 10-Renhatsu! This version uses significantly different lyrics.
The official theme song for the show was performed by Masaaki Endoh. The first verse is used in the opening sequence of episodes 2 through 31; the second verse (with the last stanza of the song replacing the last stanza of the regular second verse) is used for the opening sequence of episodes 32 through 48. The first verse would be used one last time to open Episode "FINAL" (49), the final episode of the television series.
For the sequel OVA King of Braves GaoGaiGar FINAL, a new version of this song (with differing lyrics and arrangement) was written, called the "Mythology Version". Though it benefits from a new set of lyrics and its arrangement is enhanced somewhat to be subtly more orchestral in tone, its basic composition is essentially unchanged from the original version. Two variants of the song exist. The "Ultimate Mythology Version" incorporates a children's chorus backing the artist, Masaaki Endoh. The "Grand Glorious Gathering Version" (used exclusively in the television re-airing of King of Braves GaoGaiGar FINAL Grand Glorious Gathering) incorporates timpani and an adult male chorus backing Endoh.
The first verse of this song was used as the opening of episodes Final 01 through Final 06. For Final 07, the second verse (with the last stanza of the song replacing the last stanza of the regular second verse, and the "Goldion Crusher" line omitted) from the "Ultimate Mythology Version" was used. For the episode "FINAL OF FINAL" (the final episode of the OVA), a solo piano version of "Yuusha-Oh Tanjou!" was used.
