Shiva, Brahma, and Vishnu are three major antagonists of Cyborg 009 and the main villains of the aborted "Neo Black Ghost" arc. They are the founders of the successor organization Neo Black Ghost after the original Black Ghost organization's apparent demise at the hands of the 00 cyborgs.
Shiva, Brahma, and Vishnu are three cybernetic triplet brothers whose faces display some part of their cybernetic nature.
- Shiva, Brahma, and Vishnu are the names of prominent Hindu gods. Shiva is the god of death and destruction, but is also associated with positive change and rebirth. Brahma is the god of creation and the father of Manu, whose descendants contain all of mankind. Vishnu is the god of mercy and all that is good, as well as the preserver and protector of all that exists. Shiva, Brahma, and Vishnu are often depicted as the "Holy Trinity" in Hindu religion.
- The Italian dub mistranslated these characters' names as Shiba, Brehmut, and Bishun, which caused the loss of the mythological references. This is speculated to have been due to faulty English grammar and spellings in the Simple English scripts that Toei had supplied (which also lead to other errors such as "Flair" and "Tol" for Freyja and Thor).
