A quiet, polite, lonely immortal esper about which little is known, he is called "Locke the Superman", but often denies being so. It is not known where or when he was born, and if asked, Locke will say he does not remember. It is entirely possible this is true. However, when asked by Cornelia Prim in "Millennium of the Witch" which star he was from, Locke replied "Toa."

He has appeared at various times throughout the history of the galaxy, either as a direct influence, an indirect influence, or a simple observer. Using his esper abilities, Locke can learn and do most things more quickly than a normal human. His power also allows him to remain eternally young, or even turn himself into a child again to be adopted by kind-hearted families. It is speculated he remains youthful as an excuse not to take responsibility for whatever cause he is approached for, since no one expects youths to have such responsibilities.

- Choujin Locke was quite a shock when I first watched it as a little kid. My parents rented the VHS for me because they thought it was some kiddy story. After all, the English title, Locke The Superman, made us think it was a Superman spin-off. Imagine my horror (and excitement) when I saw severed heads and rivers of blood filling the screen. It was my first encounter with the action/horror side of anime. And yes, it was one of the titles that made me love read more

well, this is my late Birthday review about this film, THEY SHOULD make and 40 part serie´s of this se 1 & 2, and its one hell of a space trip here with rivers of blood on end and lots os flashy fights, And its my 2nd anime movie i´ve seen from ´84 overall!the thing i was mostly amazed about is the very early 3-d scene's at some points, and the '84 3-d spaceship snapshot really shows that japan back then was very ahead of its time, ok it looks damn cheap, i don't care, it was innovative for their concern! Animation looks right read more

Both anime are set far into the future where some espers are causing trouble and the hero, who happens to be the most powerful esper in the universe, has to defeat them.

well, look at the animation, both have in a big part supernatural content in the movie´s, and both ae abouth the freedom of ppl that are ´rejected´ by society because they have been considered an esper ( locke) or a mu ( terra e....) psychic humanlike creature´s. boht i think are truly space opera gems
These two anime can almost be termed space operas. They're both massive on action, heavy on violence and deep, very deep in space! They aren't like the current crop of anime sadly.
These long, '80s space movies have things like unpredictable enemies, star traveling, extraterrestrial side-characters, and blasting fights (not space fights rather) in common. Also, both main characters are considered legendary in their part of the universe.
movies with supernatural as the main theme wether in outer space or just on earth, though x is more related to religion and folklore than locke, u can count on flashy fights!
Though Locke is more of a space opera and Railgun is super-powered slice-of-life, they both have the idea that ESPer powers can be developed. In the Locke universe, the students train at Lady Kahn's school to become ESPers. There are no levels or variations like there is with Railgun. Also in Locke they students are trained to be used as a took for evil. It's rarely their choice to use their powers for the good. Railgun, each other students are trained because of the pursuit of science. Some do use their powers for evil, other's good.
