'''''Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger vs. Space Sheriff Gavan: The Movie''''' is a {{Crossover}} between ''Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger'' and ''Series/SpaceSheriffGavan''.

!!''Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger vs. Space Sheriff Gavan: The Movie'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* [[ActingForTwo Acting for Three]]: Kenji Ohba not only reprises his role as Retsu Ichijouji (Space Sheriff Gavan), he also reprises his two major roles in ''Franchise/SuperSentai'', Shirou Akebono (Battle Kenya) from ''Series/BattleFeverJ'' and Daigorou Oume (Denzi Blue) from ''Series/DenshiSentaiDenziman''. And of course, at the very end the three of them are standing together on-camera, with Daigorou's arm resting on Retsu's shoulder. For those who don't know, that is a VERY difficult shot to do, since they were filmed outside and not in a green screen studio.
* TheAlcatraz: Part of the setting, with the Gokaigers even planning a breakout.
* AsideGlance: Upon defeating the Gokaigers, Gavan salutes at the camera.
* BorrowedCatchphrase: All the Gokaigers, including ''Machalcon'' in his BigDamnHeroes, borrow Marvelous' BattleCry, providing variations of their own (all except Gai, who can't come up with one).
* BookEnds: A shot of Gavan at the top of a flight of stairs.
* CombinationAttack: Gokai Red and Gavan execute a finishing attack [[spoiler: on giant Asurada]] called the ''Gavan Marvelous Dynamic'' -- Marvelous plugs the Gokai Red Ranger Key into his Gokai Sabre for a Final Wave and does a powerful slash while Gavan uses his ''Gavan Dynamic'', a powerful slash from his LaserBlade.
* ContinuityCameo: Well there's obviously Gavan, along with Battle Kenya and Denzi Blue. Several past villains appear as well.
** [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Action Commanders Sneak Brothers and Jerashid]]
** [[Series/BakuryuuSentaiAbaranger Trinoid 12 Yatsudenwani]]
** [[Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger Phantom Spy Vancuria]]
** [[Series/GoGoSentaiBoukenger Dark Shadow's Shizuka of the Wind and Gekkou of Illusions]].
** [[Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger The three main Gaiark Pollution Ministers]]. Yogostein is still drinking the sake stolen from Genta's sushi cart from ''Shinkenger vs. Go-Onger''!
** [[Series/TensouSentaiGoseiger Mons Drake, Kinggon and Robogog]].
** [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg ...and]] [[Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger Bae]].
* ContinuityNod
** The Gokaiger mention to Gavan at the beginning of the movie that the Dekaranger have already cleared the Gokaigers' names with regards to the accusations by the Zangyack.
** Jerashid is wearing a wedding ring, consistent of when he last appeared in the series.
* CoolOldGuy: The trinity of Kenji Ohba.
* CrucifiedHeroShot: Gavan
* DramaticDrop: Gai at the beginning, upon witnessing the aerial battle between the Gokai Galleon and Gavan's ship, and seeing his friends lose.
* DungeonBypass: How the Gokaigers quickly escape the Makuu prison: separated on different levels, they all shoot down at their feet, creating a hole on each floor to jump through.
* EarlyBirdCameo: This movie marks the first appearance of the Gokaiger's successors, ''Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters'', who take on Basco.
* EvilKnockoff: Gavan Bootleg.
* EvilTowerOfOminousness: Makuu Prison; Retsu is held at the very top of the structure.
* GracefulLoser: Surprisingly, Basco once he is thwarted by the Go-busters.
* HandshakeSubstitute: Marvelous and Retsu have a fist bump before the big brawl.
* {{Homage}}: The ending in which Gavan poses with Battle Kenya and Denzi Blue is a callback to the GrandFinale of ''Series/SpaceSheriffShaider'', in which the title character posed with Gavan and [[Series/SpaceSheriffSharivan Sharivan]].
* HopeSpot: The beginning of the movie has the Gokaigers believing they shot down Gavan's ship that was chasing them, until Electronic Starbeast Dol flies out of the flames and takes them down.
* IOweYouMyLife: Marvelous helps Gavan to return the favor, since Retsu saved a young Marvelous and helped make him the man he is today by teaching him to be brave. The other Gokaiger go along because, as they say, Marvelous' origin is their origin, so by association they owe him too.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Marvelous and Retsu/Gavan.
* LetsYouAndHimFight: Gavan is hired by the Zangyack to capture the Gokaiger.
* LoverTugOfWar: Don between Shizuka and Kegalesia. Should he count as lucky or unlucky?
* ManVersusMachine: Gavan versus Bootleg. As Retsu says in the final battle, Bootleg might know all his moves, but a mere machine can't copy the human soul.
* MilestoneCelebration: Of the ''Franchise/MetalHeroes''' 30th year.
* MirroredConfrontationShot: between Gokai Red and Gavan.
* NamesTheSame: Gokaiger's Don and Don Horror, the BigBad of the original ''Series/SpaceSheriffGavan'' series. Although Don Horror doesn't appear in this movie, when Makuu Chief Asurada says that the blood of Don Horror is flowing through him, the Gokaigers [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] this, saying they don't know who Don Horror is but their Don is more impressive, though Marvelous says that [[ButtMonkey doesn't really matter either]].
* NoodleIncident
** While discussing Gavan, Denzi Blue mentions to Battle Kenya that he met him once. An off-screen ''Denziman''/''Gavan'' teamup perhaps? This is more likely a LampshadeHanging of the aforementioned [[ActingForTwo Acting for Three]] trope.
** Jerashid is one of the inmates in the Makuu Prison. Since he had [[HeelFaceTurn retired from villainy]] earlier in the series, it's unclear what led to his imprisonment. He even starts to explain, but the Gokaigers blow him off.
* OverlyLongGag: The time Don takes to recover from a fall, in slow-motion.
* ProductionForeshadowing: In the [[Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters Go-Busters]] EarlyBirdCameo, Basco assumes they are "Super Sentai wannabes", before they reveal themselves to be the 36th Super Sentai team. ''Series/HikoninSentaiAkibaranger'', an unofficial Super Sentai series which follows the adventures of an unofficial Sentai team trying to get their own TV show and be recognised as an official Super Sentai, first aired a few months after the movie was released.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Marvelous is revealed to have known Gavan some time in the past.
* ShotAtDawn: How the Gokaigers are supposed to be executed, complete with UnwillingSuspension.
* ThemeSongPowerUp: The ''Space Sheriff Gavan'' and ''Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger'' main themes play during the Gavan vs. Gavan Bootleg/Gokaigers vs. Asurada double battle near the end of the movie. Also, the Gokaigers and Gavan quote their own theme songs at various points during the movie to inspire or motivate themselves/others (such as Gavan's pep talk to a young Marvelous).
* TimeShiftedActor: Averted; Kenji Ohba plays Retsu in Marvelous's FlashBack, but they only ever show him from the back or in distant shots (and apparently touched up the gray out of his hair) in order to hide his age.
* TransformationSequence: According to the narrator, it takes one-twentieth of a second for Retsu to change into Gavan, while the Gokaiger only take one-tenth of a millisecond to transform.
* UngratefulBastard: Played for laughs; Gai gets manhandled by Luka and ''Don'' because of how late his rescue attempt was.
* VisualPun: Gavan slashes at the screen in a certain pattern once the "cross"-over part was mentioned in the narration.
