The Flashers (フラッシャー,   Furasshā?) are fly-like kaijin created by Toho that first appeared in episode 1 of the 1972 tokusatsu kaiju series, Assault! Human.


In Human, the Flashers wear black jumpsuits with white gloves and boots. They all wear fly head-like helmets with silver antlers pointing to the sides that cover most of their heads except for their mouths and chins. The color of their heads depends on what kind of Flasher they are. There are regular flashers which have blue heads, Flasher Red Eyes which have red heads, Flasher Black Masks which have black heads, and Flasher Pink Masks which have pink heads. The regular flashers also have different colored straps spanning across their chests. The color of the strap also depends on what kind of Flasher they are.

In Greenman, the Flashers wear black jumpsuits, white gloves, white boots, and a white belt. They also both have the head of a fly. The Flasher has a blue, fly-like head, and silver antlers that point to the sides while his clone has a red, fly-like head and his antlers point forward.


Assault! Human

The original Flashers who donned blue eyed heads were created by King Flasher to do his bidding. They would often act as henchman and rarely appeared without accompany from a kaiju. Despite this, they have had encounters with the Human brothers Junichiro and Junjiro Iwaki on multiple occasions. Later on, the Flashers were upgraded to Flasher Red Eyes (フラッシャーレッドアイ,   Furasshāreddoai?) whose eyes were recolored red, leaving the original blue-eyed Flashers mostly obsolete.

Around the time of King Flasher's supersedement, another generation of Flashers called Flasher Black Masks (フラッシャーブラックマスク,   Furasshāburakkumasuku?) who had completely different head designs, and Flasher Pink Masks (フラッシャーピンクマスク,   Furasshāpinkumasuku?) who were the Black Masks' female counterparts.

Go! Greenman

Greenman vs. Flasher

In Go! Greenman a Flasher Red Eye was created by Tonchiki to collect child blood for Maoh. However, since the two shows are unrelated story-wise this Flasher Red Eye was simply referred to as "Flasher". It was soon deployed and began tormenting children only to be stopped by the hero Greenman. They brutally combated each other for a short time before the Flasher teleported to a safe area and created a blue-eyed clone of himself. Greenman struggled to keep up with the fast-paced creatures and was quickly overpowered. Luckily, the red Flasher had wandered off to assist Tonchiki who clumsily activated the Green Call. With a boost of strength, Greenman eventually did away with the blue clone and finished off the remaining Flasher with his signature Breaster missiles.


  • The Red Flasher can create the Blue Flasher.
  • The Blue Flasher has teleportation abilities.
