There has been alot of disscussion about where Yoshiki Takaya got inspiration for the Guyver and everyone has came up with the same conclusion...Takaya has used history, myths and religions as his ideas.
Here is an index of the diferent ideas (This index is still under heavy construction so there may be some pointless crap in the following which has still to be edited):
NOTE: THESE ARE UN-OFFICIAL ASSUMPTIONS
- The Greek god Gaea(Gyua) the god of Earth
- Cronus, in Greek mythology. He became ruler of the Earth, but was fated to be in turn deposed by one of his own children. He swallowed Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades, and Poseidon at birth. As for Zeus, the last-born. Zeus eventually killed Cronus and the other children were release
-The most likely basis for the twelve ruling overlords of Chronos (Zoalord Twelve) are the Twelve Apostles
- Zeus is the Greek sky god and ruler of Olympus, Zeus was the son of Cronus. Also the Romans god of Jupiter.
- 'Archanfel' Dosent this version of the first Zoalord's name sound an awful like ArchAngel. Archanfel was the Creators no one creation and main servant.
- Archaeoptryx, 150 million year birdsuch as feathered wings and reptilian features, such as separate clawed fingers, and teeth. Despite this unique mix of anatomical features, don't some of these fetures remind you of Alkanphel's Zoaform.
- A flat-topped mountain of volcanic origin rising from the ocean floor, particularly in the Pacific. The term is named after the Swiss-American scientist, Arnold Guyot (1807-89).
- Riemann, (Georg Friedrich) Bernhard (1826-66), German mathematician whose achievements are characterized by their outstandingly imaginative character. Riemann surfaces are the modifications of the complex number plane required for a proper understanding of algebraic and other many-valued functions; Riemannian geometry is the study of intrinsic properties of curved space, now fundamental to the relativistic description of our universe. His name is attached to several other concepts and theorems in mathematics, of which the most famous is an assertion about the complex numbers which are roots of a certain transcendental equation. This assertion, known as the Riemann hypothesis, has many deep implications, particularly about the distribution of prime numbers, but after more than 100 years it remains one of the greatest of the unsolved problems of mathematics.
- Wafd (Wafd al-Misri, Arabic, 'Egyptian Delegation'), Egyptian nationalist party. Under the leadership of Zaghlul Pasha it demanded freedom from British rule. When Egypt won nominal independence in 1922, the Wafd demanded full autonomy and control of the Sudan and the Suez Canal. After 1924 there were frequent Wafdist governments, in conflict with the monarchy. In 1930 the constitution was suspended and Egypt became a royal dictatorship until the Wafdists succeeded in restoring the constitution in 1935. In 1950 the Wafd formed a one-party cabinet and the struggle between King Farouk and his government intensified. The monarchy fell in 1952 and the new Revolutionary Command Council under Colonel Gamal Nasser dissolved all political parties.
ZoaCrystals/ Control Medalions
The ZoaCrystals and Control Medalions - I think the marks some Hindus have on their foreheads are what inspired the ZoaCrystals and maybe the Control Medal.
