The storyline of Gamera the Brave was based on “Konaka Gamera”, one of the original scripts prepared for Gamera: Guardian of the Universe by Konaka brothers (Chiaki and Kazuya), prior to the script by Kazunori Itō. Additionally, “Konaka Gamera”‘s idea inspired the story-line of Digimon Tamers which was written by Chiaki Konaka.

In 1973, Gamera self-destructed to kill a flock of Gyaos, which were attacking a small village. One of the survivors was a little boy. Thirty three years later, the little boy has grown up and owns a small restaurant in the Japanese coastal town of Iseshima. He has a son named Toru.

Toru’s mother has recently died in a car crash, and this is his first summer without her. When playing on the beach with his friends, he sees a strange red glow emanating from a nearby rock formation.

He decides to investigate it. Toru finds an egg lying on top of a strange red rock with patterns carved into it. When he picks up the egg, a baby turtle hatches. Toru names him “Toto”, which is what his mother used to call him.

Toru takes Toto home but keeps him a secret from his father who doesn’t allow pets in the house. The only people he tells are his friends and his next door neighbor, a girl named Mai who is slightly older than Toru and looks after him. Toto soon reveals himself to be no ordinary turtle, as he flies and shoots fireballs from his mouth.

Mai begins to suspect that Toto is actually the son of Gamera and she tries to convince Toru that keeping him is not a good idea. Toru tries not to believe her, reasoning that Toto can’t be a Gamera; otherwise he would be 200 feet tall.
