In college, Dai Sawamura deciphered the figures on the Nazca Plain in Peru. Impressed by this feat, the Galactic Union Police recruited the archaeologist and trained him to be Earth's third Space Sheriff, after which he was given the code name 'Shaider' in memory of an ancient warrior who defeated the villain Emperor Kubilai and brought down the Fuuma Empire 12,000 years ago.The empire, upon knowing the appointment of Dai as the new 'Shaider', plotted to annihilate him in order to conquer Earth once again.

Weapons and Arsenal

* Vavilos: The giant spaceship headquarters of Shaider and Annie. The base of their operation strategies as it circles around the Earth. It can fire the Vavilos Beam from its wings. Whenever Shaider enters the Strange Realm and encounters a giant Fuuma gunship, he summons Vavilos, commanding it to transform either into a giant gun called the Big Magnum or a giant robot whose chest emits a giant laser beam called Vavilos Fire (which he does rarely because its movements are limited), fires Vavilos Lasers from its hands, and can shoot Vavilos Missiles. Babilos is the Philippine dubbed version of Vavilos and "Matrix Projection" is also another version of "Shooting Formation"..

Strange World Fuuma

A religion based from the Strange Palace in the Strange World dimension revering Kubilai as its god which intends to conquer the universe through psychological attacks. Kubilai attempted to take over Earth 12,000 years ago, only to be stopped by the warrior Shaider and was defeated again by the modern Shaider.
* Great Emperor Kubilai: The ruler of Fuuma and the former ruler of the Mu Empire. He is portrayed as a giant, golden head with three red eyes embedded in the wall of the Fuuma Palace. Later revealed to have had a body once, having tentacled limbs with serpent-like heads on the ends, but he was separated from his body by the warrior Shaider, when the latter cut his head off 12,000 years ago, and sealed his body in a cave. (Episode #47) Kubilai intended to find his body to become whole again. Shaider managed to get Kubilai's animated body back into the cave and blow up all of its limbs, leaving only the torso (which could speak and had a mind and eye of its own) to remain and was destroyed by Shaider. (Episode #48) Shaider eventually broke into the fortress to save Annie. He then challenged Kubilai to fight one on one. For this, Kubilai had a new robotic body, with tentacles to give him mobility. Shaider destroyed this new body, forcing Kubilai to resort to levitation for movement. Shaider killed Kubilai after realizing his (Kubilai's) weakness: he impaled his sword in Kubilai's third eye. His last words were "Long live Fuuma!" Fuuma Le-Ar is the Philippine dubbed version of Kubilai.

* Shinkan Poe: Kubilai's transvestite grandson in white who serves as advisor and strategist. He is attired in elegant white robes, and a horned, immensely large oval shaped headdress. As a high priest, Poe presides over the Strange Beast birth and Strange Dimension Generation ceremonies. Drinking an elixir made somehow from young girls every 500 years, he lived 15,000 years. Unwilling to have anyone be more beautiful than he, his true face is mummified. He met his end at the end of the series (Episode #48) after Kubilai was destroyed. Since his grandfather was no longer alive to give him the energy he needed to stay young, he repented to Annie and Shaider before fading away into nothingness alongside the lower ranked Fuuma monsters that were on the Palace. In battle, Poe could toss his scepter as well as blast Shaider with blue lasers from the scepter's core. Poe possesses teleportation and telekinetic abilities that he demonstrated on Shaider, before he broke free from his control. Babaylan Ida is the Philippine dubbed version of Poe.

* Hessler: A field operative. Hessler oversees the attacks on Earth. He is a proud, yet easily irritated warrior who often gets into arguments with his younger brother Himley, who once tried to take his position. Hessler met his end, near the end of the series (Episode #45), when he was destroyed by Shaider in battle. Drigo is the Philippine dubbed version of Hessler.

* Himley(ep 28): Hessler's brother. He is dressed in an armor that seems to be spider-themed and wields two swords, and a trident, in battle. He and Hessler went into battle against Shaider together. Himley could blast lasers from the spider's eyes embedded in his head gear and seemed to be a great fencer. Himley could also blast webbing-shaped lightning bolts, in battle. He was destroyed by a fatal sneak attack inflicted by Hestler, after he had betrayed Hessler by trying to usurp his position. Kubilai promised to give Himley Hessler's job and position if he destroyed Shaider. After the offer, Himley eagerly agreed and looked forward to taking Hessler's place.

* Girl's Army: A team of five deadly, kunoichi trained in the most vicious and dangerous arts of combat. They had no individual names, but the production notes listed them as: Girl 1 (black), Girl 2 (purple), Girl 3 (red), Girl 4 (green), and Girl 5 (pink). They are commanded by Hessler. First Girl 1 was destroyed (Episode #44) and then Girl 3 followed (Episode #45). At the end of the series, Kubilai ate the three remaining girls to give him energy to battle Shaider. Amazonas is the Philippine dubbed version of Girls' Army.

* Miraclers: Grunts with big round eyes and fanged mouths. They act either as foot soldiers or as pilots for the carriage-shaped aircraft. Destroyed at the end of the series when the fortress crumbled apart and exploded. Shaider occasionally kicks their butts before going on to fighting the Strange Beast.

Strange Beasts

Psychedelic, deceptively comical-looking creatures that Kubilai "gives birth" to using a special ceremony with the help of Poe. Their naming system is two syllables, repeated twice (an allusion to the Japanese penchant for onomatopoeia).

#No monster created, as Himley was the main enemy in this episode.

*Muchimuchi (Movie 2)

Other Villains

* Omega (Movie 1): An assassin (alien gunman to be exact) who has been hunting all the Space Sheriffs. He previously went after Gavan and later Sharivan but failed. In the movie, Shaider was his new prey. Armed with twin shoulder cannons.

Shigi jiku / Strange Dimension

The Strange Dimension is an alternate universe with various traps and other dimensions. Some of the traps used in this realm are designed to match the monster's theme. Also seen are grunts and minions that assist the monster against Shaider. The temperature in this dimension reaches about 6,000 degrees Celsius. The primary purpose of this dimension is to enhance a Strange monster's powers and abilities by about 4 times, in an attempt to give it the upper hand against Shaider. When Kubilai calls for the Strange dimension, Poe will summon it to draw the beast inside, thereby luring Shaider to follow it into Fuuma territory. Besides the monster and the various traps within the Strange dimension, a constant threat Shaider faces inside is a Fuuma gunship; for this reason, he calls on his battle fortress Vavilos, using either its giant blaster or robot form to destroy the gunship.

Despite an upgrade in its fighting strength, a Strange Beast can still be destroyed by Shaider while inside the Strange Realm. This, in turn, will dissolve the warp until the next time it is summoned again. Time Space Warp in the Philippine and Tempo Espacial Mágico in the Brazillian dubbed version of Strange Dimension. Shinkan Poe's (Babaylan Ida) phrase in Philippine dubbed is "Time Space Warp, Ngayon Din!" (Strange Dimension, at once!)"
