Super Robot Wars Gaiden (subtitled as Masou Kishin: The Lord of Elemental) is a side-story game and the last to be made for Super Famicom. It is the first game to lack any licensed characters, predating even Super Robot Wars Original Generation. It is the first Super Robot Wars to feature mecha drawn to scale as opposed to the the Super-Deformed formula.

The story of Gaiden tells solely on the origins of the entire Masou Kishin cast, and the genesis of the long feud between Masaki Andoh and Shu Shirakawa . The plot is split into two parts: "Part 1" occurs prior to the events of Super Robot Wars 2 , while "Part 2" takes place following the end of Super Robot Wars 4 . Also, this was the first SRW that could have been released for localization, but it's rather racy, risque dialogue caused it not be released in America. It's also the first SRW to incorporate voice acting.

An updated rerelease for the Nintendo DS was out in 2010, under the heading Super Robot Wars OG Saga: Masou Kishin - The Lord of Elemental, linking the game up with the rest of the Super Robot Wars Original Generation series. In October 2011, a PlayStation Portable sequel entitled Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Masou Kishin II: Revelation of Evil God was announced, and released on January 12, 2012. To mark the 15th anniversary of the Masou Kishin series, a new Updated Rerelease of the original game was bundled with Revelation of Evil God, complete with enhanced visuals and extended voice acting.
