* WeHardlyKnewYe: Arelunbra, who was introduced like he was going to be a prominent new officer, only to be killed off in his debut episode and never mentioned again. At the time it seemed like they were playing with the idea of giving all the villain leaders a sidekick like Hiramechimedes, but that arc had gone so badly the only reason this character showed up at all is they'd already made the costume.

* BenevolentBoss: Despite being the villains, the Gaiark Ministers are surprisingly nice. Their monsters may lose to the Go-ongers' tactics and have to retreat, but if they did well, ''they praise them''. Now ''that'''s a boss.[[note]]Suck it, [[Series/SamuraiSentaiShinkenger Dokoku]]![[/note]] Just to drop the anvil; [[spoiler:Yogostein ''personally'' mourns over Hiramechimedes' death]]. And that guy's supposed to be the villain!

Discovering that their power is greatly limited in the Human World, the Engines recruit three people at a racing circuit to become the Go-Onger and [[GreenAesop fight against the polluting conquests]] of the Gaiark. They are later joined by [[ThreePlusTwo two more members]], and a pair of [[PsychicPowers psychic siblings]] who form the [[AloofAlly aloof]] SixthRanger duo "Go-On Wings".

** For villains, the Gaiark Ministers are more ''antagonistic'' than actually ''evil'' for the most part; the reason they're the bad guys is because pollution is vital for their race and they just happened to choose the Human World for it, which puts them on the different side of the coin from the Go-ongers.

** As the series went on, the Gaiark Ministers are shown to be quite an odd bunch of fellows themselves, rather than the initial impression of "Evil Invaders from Another Dimension". Near the end of the show surviving members realize just how low their rank with the organization really is.

** Hiramechimedes, first mentioned by Yogostein as Gaiark's sharpest mind, started as a genuinely threatening villain; he has a mecha more powerful then the Go-ongers' at that time, he has excellent predictivity, and the core five Engines are scared witless ''just by hearing his name'' because of the experience from prior encounters. The only threat to him was the Go-on Wings. But... his losing streak began ''really'' quickly after his appearance, starting with a small tactic of teamwork from Go-ongers, and it just went on all the way, [[spoiler:even beyond the grave]].
