In a cyberpunk future, Kyron-5 supercomputer attempts to exterminate the human race, but Gunhed mechs stop it. In 2038, five thieves break into a condemned island facility to steal Kyron's dead CPU. The place turns out to be a deathtrap. Brooklyn's smuggling companions are slaughtered, sometimes violently, one by one as they wantonly defy the security systems of the Kyron-5. Babe falls into a vat of green liquid and becomes a cybernetic antagonist. Brooklyn is placed under arrest by Sergeant Nim, who suggests they follow surviving children Seven and Eleven. The Kyron-5 declared war on humanity, and killed most of those living on the island. Brooklyn, a mechanic, must overcome his fear of cockpits and command the Gun UNit/Heavy Elimination Device to the heart of the Kyron-5.

The concept for the film came from a story contest that Toho held in 1986, which was to decide on the narrative for the next installment in the Godzilla series. Jim Bannon was the contestant who was noted for his Godzilla 2 script, which had Godzilla facing off against a giant computer, but was beat out by Shinichiro Kobayashi with his early draft for Godzilla vs. Biollante. However, Toho didn't scrap Bannon's second place entry, but instead had Masato Harada heavily rework the idea, removing Godzilla and other elements from the film, until they were left with the final product: the infamous Gunhed.

Famous Hollywood Sci-Fi director James Cameron, who started his career as an expert special effects technician in Roger Corman's B movies, said in one of his interviews that Gunhed is one of his favorite B movies.

Was based on a idea for "Godzilla vs. Biollante", in which Godzilla would have fought a giant robot.

Gunhed stands for 'Gun UNit Heavy Elimination Device'

Gunhed's cockpit features a cash register keyboard. Legible keys include "SUB TOTAL" and "CHANGE." "NO SALE" is visible on the panel.

Popularized by famous Canadian electro-industrial band Front Line Assembly in their award-winning music video for their 1992 hit single Mindphaser. The video consists almost entirely out of edited scenes from Gunhed, with shots of the band members playing the rebels who battle the computer, spliced in with the movie footage.
