Hurricane Polymar (破裏拳ポリマー Hariken Porimā?) is a Japanese anime series produced by Tatsunoko Productions. The show was created by Tatsuo Yoshida, who had produced many of Tatsunoko's series. Other romanizations of the name include Hurricane Polymer, and Hariken Polymar (since the latter is spelled using Japanese kanji).
Hurricane Polymar is the secret identity of Takeshi Yoroi (鎧武士 Yoroi Takeshi?). He wears a special suit which enables him to fight crime. The suit is made of memory plastic which enables him to assume any shape, including morphing its wearer in 5 different vehicles.
Onigawara, the director of the International Secret Police Agency, looked forward to making Takeshi a top-notch criminal investigator. Takeshi was given training, which turned him into an all-around sportsman as well as martial arts expert. However, Takeshi's attitude toward crime-fighting was so incompatible with Onigawara's, that he disowned him. For a while Takeshi investigated crime alone; then he became a private detective's assistant and general handyman. Secretly, however, Takeshi obtained from a scientist a new artificial polymer, polymet, that was far stronger than steel. With this polymet Takeshi transformed himself into Hurricane Polymar, an invincible costumed hero.
A later anime OVA was created in th mid-90's entitled Shin (or "New") Hurricane Polymar.
Hurricane Polymar later appeared in the Wii video game Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars.
