In the 1970s, kaiju and tokusatsu were all the rage in Japan, inspiring Yokopro to create Pachimon. These collectible cards featured several “Pachimon,” monsters based on popular kaiju series such as Godzilla, Gamera, and the Ultra Series. These monsters were often depicted attacking famous cities and places, making them all the more exciting for fans.

The Kewpie Corporation produced a set of promotional playing cards featuring original creature artwork, complete with names and stats. However, some of the designs were still derivative of existing characters, leading them to be grouped together with other Pachimon cards.
