One day, mild mannered Insurance salaryman Hitoshi Nakamura was visited by Alphaman from the Planet Alpha. Upon giving Hitoshi a Metal Rod, a Tuning Fork, and a 100-yen coin, he somehow became the Super Unequaled Hero of Excellece, Bravoman! His first battle was against one of Dr. Bomb's tanks, which he presumably failed agaist. Sometime later, he encountered Waya Hime. he couldn't defeat her, but he made her run off crying saying her skirt made her look fat. Later, after defeating some of Dr. Bomb's rpbots, he was attacked by the Attack Bomber V9. he managed to defeat it by pressing the ingeniusly disguised self-destruct button one it's eye. He soon meets Lottery Man, after asking for some snacks. Waya Hime reappears, this time calling him "Strechy Cuteness", this time with a Musical Robot Ninja named Benjamin. While loosing in the battle against Benjamin, he asks the universe for the weapon of his foes destruction, only to find a banjo fall into his hands. He was originally going to have a musical showdown betwee him and Benjamin, but Alphaman reminded him that the story is a visual medium, so a music showdown may not be so entertaining. He knocks Benjamin out by hitting him in the head with the banjo, but really what happened was that Anti-Bravoman knocked Benjamin out. Bravoman goes to thank Anti for the assist, and invites him to play video games at his house. Ati accepts the over, ad leaves. Bravoman uis then attacked by the Benjamin like robot corps. All the sudden, he is saved by Bravowoman. He accidentally abandons Anti by leaving with Alphaman to the Karasu Tengu Dojo to settle things with Waya Hime. He lies to Waya saying that he is married to Bravowoman, causing her to go after her. While Bravowoman, and Waya are fighting, Bravoman comes clean saying that he lied and just didn't want Waya chasing him around. Bravoman learns of Braveman, a television hero that is taking all of his credit. He quickly makes himself Braveman's enemy, which Braveman doesn't take seriously. Bravoman later goes with Alphaman, to save his home planet, Planet Alpha from the monstrous Zulu. While there, Alphaman "Tele-Beams" assist to help battle Zulu, these being Bravowoman, Anti-Bravoman, and Braveman. Though the had no chance against Zulu at all together, Anti's unstable antiparticles suck the others into him, causing them to fuse into the Ultimate Fusion of Righteous Heroism, Bravo Master! After Bravo Master destroys Zulu by throwing him into the sun, he, Alphaman, and the other Bravos head back to Earth.
