"Viewtiful Joe, Defender of Movie Land"

Viewtiful Joe is the red-clad Superhero version of Joe, an average movie lover whose world was turned upside-down when he found himself brought into the World of Movies.


Joe was just an average movie lover, and an especially big fan of Tokusatsu movies starring his icon, Captain Blue. He would always head to an old movie theater, which was run by his father, Jet Black, to watch Captain Blue movies. One day, he was there on a date with his girlfriend, Silvia, watching a Captain Blue movie, when suddenly, the villain reached out of the movie and kidnapped Silvia! As Joe watched, the hero mecha, Six Majin, was also knocked out of the movie, and brought Joe in with it!

Inside the movie, Joe is given a V-Watch by Captain Blue and sets out to save both Silvia and Movieland!


Viewtiful Joe is the main character in the series. His goal in the first Viewtiful Joe game is to save his girlfriend Silvia. In the second game, he and Silvia are the protagonists of the story and they fight Gedow's army.
