* AntiVillain: They're called Dark Shadow, they're antagonists, but they're the least ''evil'' amongst the Negative Syndicate since Gekkou and Shizuka are not interested in causing harm to humanity unlike Gaja, Ryuuon or the Questers, they just want to make a lot of money and can be shown to be friendly to the Boukengers.

* BoisterousBruiser: Gai is a villainous example, combining efficiency, bravado and {{Troll}} laugh whenever things go his way.
* EvilCounterpart: They were made into Questers by Gajah using research on the Boukenger's Parallel Engines. Their Quester forms and SwissArmyWeapon also look vaguely Rangerlike. And to top it off, they also use HumongousMecha during each of their appearance, instead of going for human sized monsters that grow bigger upon defeat.
* EvilIsNotAToy: Gaja revives them with the Godom Engines, but didn't actually come up with a plan to control them.
