Five years ago, Daiya Tsuwabuki went on a fishing trip with his father, when giant monsters attacked them. While he was saved by a mysterious group of people, his father went missing. In the present, Daiya believes that the monsters were real & that his missing father is still alive, despite the disbelief of others. All of a sudden, monsters similar to the ones in Daiya's past began to attack the city. In the process, he meets Gaiking, a giant mech. Daiya eventually gets into Gaiking, and defeats the monster. However, he soon finds out that the owners of Gaiking are the Daikû Maryû, the same group that rescued Daiya five years ago. Soon afterwards, Daiya joins the group in their mission to enter the underground world known as Darius in order to prevent the monsters from taking over the outside world, as well as to find his father.
A boy, Tsuwabaki Daiya found a black fire in an ocean when he and his father were in a small boat. A big monster came out of the fire, and the father and the crews were disappeared into the sea. When he was about to become the next victim, a large mecka dragon appeared and saved him.
5 years later since then, Daiya becomes a junior high school student. A big monster reappear, and he meets the mecha dragon,"Daiku Maryu". The head of the dragon separates from the body, and it turns into the body of a super robot, Gaiking. He gets in Gaiking, fights against the monster, and beats it.
He learns that there is an enemy that plots to conquer the world, and he leaves for another world, Darius, to stop the plot.
Five years ago, the young Daiya Tsuwabuki and his father were involved in an accident that destroyed their ship and caused Daiya’s father to disappear. Though Daiya claimed that the accident was the result of an attack by giant monsters, he was ridiculed for his belief. Now, in the present, the same monsters have emerged and attack Daiya’s home island; and when Daiya single-handedly faces them, he runs across a flying dragon-shaped battleship named Daiku-Maryu and joins its crew as the pilot of the super robot Gaiking. Along with the Daiku-Maryu, Daiya sets forth to the inner hidden world of Darius to find his father, and put a stop to the Darius Emperor’s evil schemes.
