Captain Marvelous/Gokai Red | Actor: Ryota Ozawa
- Authority Equals Asskicking: Big time.
- Awesome McCool Name: With a name like Captain Marvelous, how can it not be awesome?
- Back-to-Back Badasses: With Joe in #12.
- Badass Arm-Fold: His pose.
- Badass Longcoat
- BattleCry: "Let's make this showy!"note , which gets adopted and adapted by the others over the course of the show. Dr. Don eventually uses "Let's blow them up!"note
- Berserk Button: Whatever you do, do not bother Marvelous while he's eating. Or steal his food. Also, don't mess with his crew.
- Big Eater: And how.
- Cat Smile
- Catch Phrase: "Well, ain't that interestin'?"note
- Combination Attack: Gavan Marvelous Dynamic, with Space Sheriff Gavan.
- Crucified Hero Shot: in #43, as the Zangyack prepare to execute him in front of a large audience.
- Determinator: Just as big as Takeru or Alata. Prime example include managing to shoot Warz Gill and Barizorg despite being heavily wounded in the back and fighting against three of Basco's extra heroes key in human form after being de-transformed.
- Expy: Of Monkey D. Luffy. Both are the red wearing leaders of their pirate crews, who's primary motivation are legendary treasure and food. If there's any doubt, his actor even cosplayed Luffy once, see here.◊
- He's also one of Tsukasa Kadoya which is even Lampshaded in Super Hero Taisen.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Phlegmatic.
- Going Down with the Ship: As the team in GoZyu GokaiOh are getting handed their asses on a platter by Warz Gill's robot, he forces the team out as the Gokai Galleon disassembles and crashes somewhere.
- Improbable Aiming Skills: Hoo, boy. Take a look at episode 35.
- It Was a Gift: Aka Red gave him the Ranger Keys and Navi.
- Japanese Pronouns: "Ore"
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Marvelous has quite a dickish attitude sometimes, but he deeply cares about his mates and for others.
- Last of His Kind: Subverted. Marvelous is stated in episode 8 to be the last surviving member of the Red Pirates, which according to Insarn is the greatest rebel force to face the Zangyack, but it's later revealed that There Is Another - Basco ta Jolokia, a rival of Marvelous.
- Technically speaking, it's actually played straight. Marvelous was still part of the Red Pirates when the gang was finished but Basco however betrayed the gang so in a way, he's not a surviving Red Pirate, so that leaves Marvelous as the last surviving Red Pirate.
- Law of Chromatic Superiority: Unless the team does an all-color Gokai Change (such as the All-Silver team in #18), he only ever uses Red Rangers. This even extends to Sixth Rangers and Extra Heroes; the only ones he ever uses are Time Fire and Wolzard Fire. Heck, even with the OOO Combo Forms he gets the Blazing TaJaDol form!
- Even when the team goes All Silver in 18, he manages to cling to a little red! He goes with Bouken Silver, whose suit has some notable red accents. Marv just likes red!
- The Leader: Just read his title.
- Lightning Bruiser: Marvelous is really strong and also quite fast at the same time.
- Offhand Backhand: Part of his fighting style, even leading up to offhand shooting in one occasion.
- Only One Name: Unless his first name is Captain....
- Pocket Protector: Takes a piece of Sally's necklace with him in his pockets, and it protects him from a fatal shot in his final duel with Basco.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Joe and Basco's blue.
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly Man to Don and Gai's Sensitive Guys. (One of two)
- During 199 Hero Great Battle, he's the manly man to Alata's sensitive guy.
- Shoot the Bullet: About a dozen in rapid succession.
- Super Strength: He's a lot stronger than he looks at first glance: in episode 7 he's shown throwing darts easily while wearing a heavy bracelet Don can barely carry with both hands, and in a flashback in episode 12, he rips the Zangyack tracking collar off Joe's neck (all the while withstanding the electric shocks, no less).
- Sword and Gun: Gokai Saber and Gokai Gun. The others, minus Gai, each have a set too, but due to the weapon swapping that occurs between them, Marvelous is the one who plays this trope straight most of the time.
Joe Gibken/Gokai Blue | Actor: Yuki Yamada
- Abhorrent Admirer: Shares one with Don in the form of a Creepy Crossdresser in #23 and Vancuria in Gokaiger Vs. Gavan.
- Back-to-Back Badasses: With Marvelous in #12.
- Bring It: Shows one in 45 while changing into Tiger Ranger.
- Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: Brooding Boy to Ahim's Gentle Girl.
- The Comically Serious: Shown first in the ending, but even moreso in #23, where he (and Don) run into an overly affectionate drag queen and end up in makeup.
- Cry Cute/Manly Tears: In #12, when he realizes the Sid he knew is gone forever.
- And again in #30. Yuki Yamada is an incredibly talented crier.
- And yet again in #38 when he finally destroys Barizorg. They must have realized where their bread was buttered when they found out that he could cry, and cry pretty, since they've been yanking his chain ever since.
- And yet again in #45, only this time its played for laughs when Navi accidentally destroys his Ninjaman tea cake.
- Deadpan Snarker: With emphasis on the "deadpan".
- Defector from Decadence
- Does This Remind You of Anything?: Stop me if you've heard this one: A soldier and his best friend/mentor defect from a fighting force and he is the only one to survive while his friend doesn't and he laments afterwards how he couldn't save his friend. Are we talking about Joe Gibken, or Cloud Strife?
- Dual Wielding: When he trades his Gokai Gun for another crew member's Gokai Saber. Taken Up to Eleven in episode 4, when he uses everyone's Gokai Sabers all at once.
- In episode 12, Kaoru gives him the Double Disc from the Shinkenger finale which allows him to dual wield Shinkenmaru.
- The finale has him using DekaMaster's D-Sword Vega and Don-as-Zubaan's sword form against Dailando.
- Expy Of Roronoa Zoro. Both are the swordsmen Lancers who prefer Dual Wielding and exercising in their down time.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Choleric.
- Implacable Man: Has a habit of invoking this whenever he gets really serious.
- Japanese Pronouns: "Ore"
- The Lancer
- Lightning Bruiser: Has made an unflinching walk into enemy fire more than once. Also pushes himself to withstand the most amount of punishment. He's still fast and has great reflexes.
- Making a Splash: His Blue Slash finisher invokes the power of the five recent water-powered Blue Rangers.
- Master Swordsman
- Megane: Of the stoic variety in Episode 39.
- Mercy Kill: Destroys Barizorg after finding out the transformation can't be undone so Sid's soul can finally rest in peace.
- My Greatest Failure: He feels terrible for letting his fellow Zangyack comrade Sid stay behind so that Joe can escape, leaving Sid to be converted into Barizorg. Come episode #30, Joe eventually learns that the conversion is irreversible and any hope of Sid regaining his human form is shot to Hell.
- The Quiet One
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Marvelous' red. (One of two)
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Goes on one against Zaien for the conversion of his old friend Sid into Barizorg and attempting to repeat the process on a great many humans. He pretty much goes Implacable Man against him and then destroys him with Sid's signature move.
- Rule of Cool
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly Man to Don and Gai's Sensitive Guys. (One of two)
- Slow Walk: When he gets serious, he makes a habit of doing this. And when he does, the target is screwed.
- The Stoic
- Sugar And Ice Guy
- Think Nothing of It: In #22, Joe goes above and beyond to help a boy fulfill a rather tall promise (getting from Tokyo to a nearby mountain entirely by bike to hang out with a friend), including using his Gokai Gun to save the boy from a troop of Gormin; afterwards, when Gai says that looking out for the kid was a very Super Sentai thing to do, Joe says it wasn't a big deal.
- Tranquil Fury: VERY likely to run on that, just like in Super Hero Taisen.
- With My Hands Tied: Not literally, but he often demonstrates a one-sword fencing style with his pistol or other sword tucked behind his back even though he's capable of Dual Wielding.
- Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Joe ran from the Zangyack because he could not obey an order to slaughter a group of captive children.
Luka Millfy/Gokai Yellow | Actress: Mao Ichimichi
- Abhorrent Admirer: Shares one with Ahim with the Admirer being Trinoid #12 - Yatsudenwani in Gokaiger vs. Gavan.
- The Big Girl: Depending on the situation, she's either an Action Girl or a Genki Girl.
- Cool Big Sis: Mostly towards Ahim, as shown in episode 23.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Once lived a life of poverty while taking care of several young children, explaining her intense desire for riches. #34 also reveals that she would use said riches to buy a planet where children like those she cared for that were orphaned by Zangyack could live in peace.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Dual Wielding: When she trades her Gokai Gun for another crew member's Gokai Saber.
- Expy: Of Nami. Both had troubled childhoods that lead them to growing up with a love of money and riches.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Sanguine.
- Glass Cannon: She can be the most powerful member of the team. Although the thing is her defense is limited, possibly due to her Genki Girl-esque occasions.
- Gratuitous English: She seems to be the member of the team who likes it the most.
- Japanese Pronouns: "Atashi"
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Masculine Girl to Don's Feminine Boy.
- Ms. Fanservice
- Ms. Vice Girl
- Ninja Maid / Meido: In episode 6.
- Not So Different: Between her and Moune in 199 Heroes, to the point where about half their lines in the movie are Spoken In Unison.
- Out-of-Character Alert: In #42, the Monster of the Week impersonates Luka, but the rest of the team catches on when "she" eagerly eats broccoli at dinner, a food the real Luka absolutely despises.
- Pirate Girl
- She Cleans Up Nicely: Luka, in 42's flashback, when she goes to see Don. And in general, on a lesser scale, between her past and the present.
- Ship Tease: She said Gai was "kinda cute" in episode 17. Her habit of pushing/shoving Don may also be taken this way by some. There's also some shiptease between Luka and Marvelous in episode 21, she was the only one who truly understood Marvelous' predicament. For the Les Yay fans, Luka and Ahim have slept on each other's shoulders and fed each other food several times.
- Shouldn't You Stop Stealing?
- Stronger Than They Look
- Tights Under Shorts
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Ahim's Girly Girl.
- Unkempt Beauty: Was one of these in flashbacks to her past as a homeless street girl.
Don "Doc" Dogoier/Gokai Green | Actor: Kazuki Shimizu
- Abhorrent Admirer: Shares one with Joe in the form of a Creepy Crossdresser in #23 and both Shizuka and Kegalesia in Gokaiger Vs. Gavan.
- Alliterative Name
- All Up to You: #43 will be his day in the sun, as Marvelous is taken to be executed and the rest of the team is missing.
- Badass on Paper: Snapped a Mook's neck, ran into battle while shooting the team's BFG, saved Marvelous from execution, and somehow he's the least skilled and courageous of the team.
- Banana Peel: Subject to this gag a few times.
- Beware the Nice Ones
- Bow Ties Are Cool
- Butt Monkey: Not even the Zangyack think he's worth their time. Subverted in this case as that lead to the "The Strongest Man in Space"'s downfall.
- And even in Gai's fantasy Gokaiger lineup, he's nonexistent.
- Combat Pragmatist: Once beat some Gormins by making them trip over his grappling hook wire as he was lying down!
- Confusion Fu: He runs on this when he has to fight. Lampshaded in #42 when Joe calls his fighting style "zany".
- Cowardly Lion: As a Running Gag, Don often hides behind other members of the team when threatened. Even Ahim. Possibly lampshaded in #42, where he transforms into Black Lion Rio - but still using his signature fighting style.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: In #42, Ahim reads a womens' magazine from space that says Don was a legendary hero who slew a planet-destroying dragon and disappeared mysteriously. He doesn't remember any of it. Doubly subverted, since while he made up the legendary hero article, he did prove himself worthy of a being a Gokaiger, as seen in #43.
- A Day in the Limelight: In a rather odd example, beyond his focus episodes, there's A Day of One Hero, a direct-to-DVD Mockumentary about Kazuki Shimizu playing Don and how it gets disrupted when a gun is found in his possessions.
- Easy Amnesia: He's apparently a legendary hero, but doesn't remember any of it. When the Gokaiger first met him the told them that the Zangyack Empire destroyed his homeworld because he was too embarrassed to admit that he didn't remember his own past. Turns out to be a subversion, as he fabricated the legendary hero article.
- Everyone Calls Him "Hakase": Before Gai joined, his real name was only mentioned once, during the enemy's review of the crew.
- Lampshaded in episode 18, where Don becomes confused and upset when Gai addresses him by his real name.
- #42 explains it in flashback; The original three hired Don to fix the Galleon's main computer, but the sight of the main cabin in total disarray inspired him to clean up the entire place single-handedly, prepare them an amazing meal, and then fix the computer by pressing a single button. The amazed Gokaigers invite Don to join their crew, but when he starts to give his name Marvelous stuffs a turkey leg in his mouth and declares that he's just gonna call him "Doc" from now on since he's "like a doctor".
- Expy: Maybe a coincidence but his lack of fighting skills and his cowardly demeanor are reminiscent of Ziggy
- And his fashion sense, general reluctance to fight and title of doctor bring to mind another character.
- He and Marvelous together are basically Simon and Kamina. Or maybe Gimmy and Simon post-Time Skip if ep. 15 is any indication.
- In keeping with the One Piece pattern, personality and skill-wise he's kinda like Usopp, as the weakest member of the crew, although inside the ship he has the roles of Sanji (cooking), Nami (navigation) and Franky (maintenance) all rolled in one.
- And his fashion sense, general reluctance to fight and title of doctor bring to mind another character.
- Fake Ultimate Hero: Subverted in which he himself made it up, instead of having anyone else do it for him.
- Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Melancholic.
- Gadgeteer Genius: He invented the Gokai Galleon Buster, the "team bazooka", pretty much entirely by hand.note
- The flashback to his meeting the group in #42 showed him fixing the Galleon's computer by pressing a single button; his asking the others "Is this the only problem?" had the air of a tech support agent asking "Is the computer plugged in?"
- Goofy Print Underwear: In the flashback in #42, his pants get caught on a nail when he tries to run from Luka; for the record, he wears plaid boxers with an embroidered frog on the seat.
- Guns Akimbo: When he trades his Gokai Saber for another crew member's Gokai Gun.
- I Gave My Word: In #42, flashbacks show how he met the others; Luka came to him (in disguise) to ask for help with the Galleon, but when he realized she was a Space Pirate he panicked and ran. But later that night he tracked down the Galleon, saying that though he's still scared, he promised to fix the ship and he always sees his jobs through to the end.
- Improbable Weapon User: He is really fond of using completely random objects in battle, ranging from pots and pans to a tree branch.
- Japanese Pronouns: "Boku"
- Kid-Appeal Character
- Lover Tug-of-War: On the receiving end of this, courtesy of Shizuka and Kegalesia. Granted, Kegalesia showed taste for a similar ranger...
- Martial Pacifist
- Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Feminine Boy to Luka's Masculine Girl.
- Neat Freak: If the flashback in #42 is anything to go by he is this but to be fair, the Gokai Galleon's crew was living in a Trash of the Titans before he came around.
- Out-of-Character Moment: Played for laughs. In Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger vs. Space Sheriff Gavan: The Movie, Gai rescues the crew, but his attempt is rather late. He and Luka beat Gai up until Ahim convinces them to stop.They then proceed to yell at him.
- Plucky Comic Relief
- Real Men Wear Pink: Often wears a pink dress shirt.
- Reluctant Warrior
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Marvelous and Joe's Manly Men. (One of two)
- During 199 Hero Great Battle, he's the sensitive guy to Agri's manly man.
- The Smart Guy: One of two. In his case, he's the team engineer.
- Super Speed: Not used in combat and played for laughs. Even if it took him 10 minutes, he managed to clean the entire galleon (Which did not look easy), fix the ship, and prepare a nice meal without breaking a sweat.
- Team Chef: He is the ship's cook. #19 shows that he even tailor-makes his recipes to suit each crew member's needs.
- Token Good Teammate: As a pacifist, he's less bloodthirsty than the rest of the crew, even Ahim.
- Wrestler in All of Us: And during unmorphed fights for extra badass points!
- Case in point — his Episode 13 usage of the Figure Four Leg Lock on a Goumin...who fittingly enough, taps out. WHOOOOOOO!
- Special mention goes to the fight during episode 11, when he executes a Hurricanrana on a Gormin and lands on his feet (most people simply belly flop.)
Ahim de Famille/Gokai Pink | Actress: Yui Koike
- Abhorrent Admirer: Shares one with Luka with the Admirer being Trinoid #12 - Yatsudenwani in Gokaiger vs. Gavan.
- Badass Princess
- Beware the Nice Ones: She may look sweet but puts up a hell of a fight in battle. She was also prepared to swindle her crewmates out of a large amount of money in order to help a guy who had attempted to kidnap her to pay off his debts.
- Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: Gentle Girl to Joe's Brooding Boy.
- The Chick
- Dark and Troubled Past: Ahim's home planet was destroyed by the Zangyack and her parents were burned alive infront of her.
- Deceased Parents Are the Best: Ahim actually watched her parents get killed as her planet was conquered.
- The Ditz: A minor example combined with Cloud Cuckoo Lander. While she's quite competent and sane, she does tend to go off-track on things that regular people find normal (such as high school), given her background as a princess.
- In #40, when flashing back to her first joining the crew, Luka describes Ahim as "my pace", meaning she does things her own way, which makes her seem ditzy when compared to the others.
- Everything's Better with Princesses: Double Subverted. The team was generally anti-heroic, but not her.
- Everything Sounds Sexier in French: Why else would she be called Ahim de Famille.
- Expy: Of Vivi. Both have had their homelands terrorized by evil organizations and are working towards their freedom.
- Guns Akimbo: When she trades her Gokai Saber for another crew member's Gokai Gun.
- And one time firing two guns with one hand. Simultaneously. The SH Figuarts action figure makes this Gokai Pink's exclusive prop.
- The Heart: Emphasized in a Flash Back in #41, where the Gokaiger observe that if she hadn't been around as a balancing influence they'd probably have broken up due to infighting long ago.
- Hidden Depths: The premise of #29.
- Hotter and Sexier: In the Gobusters team-up with her new haircut and gothic dress. Her actress becomes this as well.
- Hope Bringer: Her motivation for joining the Gokaigers was to become this for the survivors of her homeworld.
- Joke Item: The Abare Pink Key Emiri gives her in #29. While it does allow Ahim to transform, it doesn't include any powers.
- Keigo: Which owes to her pronoun of choice.
- Last Of Her Kind: Ahim is possibly the last survivor of the Planet Famille which was destroyed by the Zangyack.
- #41 has confirmed that there are other survivors scattered across the universe but her entire family is indeed gone.
- The Load: Noteworthy of having already been Defied. As mentioned in earlier tropes, she was useless when first joined the team, but she trained hard into what she became by episode #1.
- Of course, it was averted anyway. While she might have been ineffective in battle, during the rest of their day-to-day lives, her ability to be peacemaker was crucial in keeping the other Gokaigers from killing each other.
- Panty Shot: Before she changes during the fight in Episode 11. No Magic Skirt for this princess.
- Plucky Girl: Flashbacks in #41 show that she wasn't good at anything at first: she got knocked on her butt by the recoil of the Gokai Gun, couldn't lift the Gokai Sabre, flooded the Galleon with suds while doing the laundry, and couldn't even interact with the others due to her sheltered upbringing. Obviously she stuck it out long enough to become the Badass Princess we know and love.
- Princesses Prefer Pink
- Reverse Grip: Only Gokaiger to use it frequently.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: In #41, the Monster of the Week is the Zangyack Imperial Guard who destroyed her homeworld and killed her parents. Right in front of her. When she sees him this ep she goes Attack! Attack! Attack!, even throwing Joe and Gai aside when they try to stop her. Later, when she has the others helping her, she gives him a royal beatdown with their help, even launching the killing blow with the Gokai Galleon Buster, complete with an And This Is For... speech.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Though she didn't start out as such, her backstory in #41 reveals that she became a pirate in order to get the Zangyack Empire's attention and thus be put on Wanted posters, and thus serve as an example to the survivors of her planet that she was taking a stand against them.
- Spoiled Sweet: She's rich, but extremely kind and gracious.
- Token Good Teammate: In fact, she's the only one who's still recognisably the same person in Gai's vision of the team.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Luka's Tomboy.
- Took a Level in Badass: As shown in episode 41, she wasn't even able to hold a sword or fire a gun when she first asked to join the Gokaigers. Now she's as capable of a fighter as the rest of the team.
- Trademark Favorite Drink: Tea
- You Are Not Alone: She insists on taking on the monster who destroyed her home planet and killed her parents all by herself, but the others assure her of this.
Gai Ikari/Gokai Silver | Actor: Junya Ikeda
- Accidental Misnaming: Is mildly annoyed when Sosuke calls him Yoroi (an alternate reading of his name's kanji, see Meaningful Name).
- The Ace: As all of them are.
- All Your Powers Combined: His Super Mode is formed from the power of the previous Sixth Rangers, and he has the ability to fuse other Ranger Keys together to create combined forms such as Go-On Wings and Gokai Christmas.
- Ascended Fanboy: In and Out universe example. Gai is a fan of Super Sentai, same goes with the actor Junya Ikeda, who is a big Super Sentai fan. The fanboy part normally shows up anytime he encounters a member of a past Sentai. He actually flips when he is the only one of the team members not to see Gai Yuuki in #28.
- Badass Adorable: His hyperactive fanboy tendencies might have turned some fans off, but watch him and try not to smile any time he geeks out over a previous Sentai member (or even better, his bouncing around singing "Jingle Bells.") Now realize that he can switch from that to absolutely laying waste to the Zangyack so quick it's staggering.
- Badass Boast: His response to Marvelous asking him if he really wants to face the Zangyack. He states he's going to smash the Zangyack and bring peace to the universe. The rest of the Gokaiger are very impressed by the guts it takes to say something like this, as the Zangyack rule most of the universe and took an entire Badass Army of Sentai to beat last time.
- Badass Normal: More or less. He is the only human amongst aliens and while the other Gokaigers have about 34 Ranger Keys each, he only has fifteen Ranger Keys. Interesting to note, he defeated a bunch of gormins and an action commander without using a Gokai Change. (granted he didn't have any other keys but it was still cool.)
- BattleCry: "Let's do it ecstatically!"note
- Butt Monkey: In the movies (Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger the Movie: The Flying Ghost Ship and Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger vs. Space Sheriff Gavan: The Movie) Gai really gets treated badly by the other Gokaigers, especially in the latter.
- On the side note, he's like this when Don isn't the butt monkey of an episode.
- Big "NO!": He lets one out any time the other Gokaigers mix up Sentai teams, which usually leaves him the odd one out of a full lineup.
- Chrome Champion: He's the third silver ranger in an anniversary series, right up there with Gao Silver and Bouken Silver
- Determinator: It earned him his spot on the Gokai Galleon in #18.
- In #32, he pulls a Big Damn Heroes moment in the mecha battle with a broken arm!
- Dual Wielding: Does this with the Rocket Daggers every time he brings out the Go-On Wings key.
- Early-Bird Cameo: In the 199 Hero Great Battle film.
- Expy: An overeager, hammy and extremely excited metallic colored warrior who wants to join the main team while they are a little wary of recruiting him, and has a different heritage than the main five (an Earthling instead of aliens), just like Genta Umemori (Shinken Gold).
- Finishing Move: Each of his Gokai Spear's modes have a different Final Wave finisher.
- Spear Mode: Gokai Shooting Starnote
- Gun Mode: Gokai Supernovanote
- Anchor Mode: Two variations:
- Gokai Legendream: Gokai Silver summons energy duplicates of Mega Silver, Bouken Silver, Gao Silver, Gosei Knight, the Go-On Wings, and Magi Shine, who fire energy bullets. The bullets turn into Deka Break, Kiba Ranger, Shurikenger, Time Fire, Abare Killer, Dragon Ranger, Shinken Gold, and King Ranger. They each slash the enemy once, followed by Gokai Silver dashing in for a combo slash to finish it off.
- Gokai Legend Crash: Gokai Silver performs a series of slash attacks, accompanied by ghost images of the Sixth Rangers.
- Fusion Dance: A different take on this trope. Gai has a unique ability to merge Ranger Keys together. He's done this with the Go-on Wings keys to make a half and half Ranger. He has done the same with Gokai Green and Red for a Christmas themed Ranger. And his Gold Mode uses the fused keys of the previous fifteen sixth Rangers.
- Genre Savvy: Probably the most justified case in this series, given that he's a fanboy.
- Episode 20, when Navi gives the next clue. He easily figured out the clue was refering to Gingaman.
- In #22, he shares his savvy by having a bunch of Super Sentai factbooks printed up for the other Gokaiger, so they can find all the mission-critical information easily even if he's not around. However, #31 shows the others haven't been studying, since the answer to Navi's "skateboarding lion" message (Yellow Lion) was in the books, as Gai helpfully points out.
- Hot-Blooded: He's very energetic and passionate about everything, pretty much all the time. From takoyaki, to world peace conferences, to grocery shopping. He regularly gets called out on it.
- The Knight Who Says Squee
- Large Ham
- Lethal Joke Character
- Meaningful Name: The kanji of his given name can also be read as "Yoroi", meaning "armor", while his surname means "anchor". "Anchor Armor" is exactly what Gold Mode is.
- Mr. Exposition: Provides the Gokaigers with information regarding the Sentai alumni.
- New Transfer Student: As he explained in #40, his parents moved around a lot so he was constantly transferring schools; his determination to talk to everyone he knew despite not being able to stay for long is why he has lots of friends.
- No Sense of Personal Space: Gai has an annoying habit of grabbing onto a fellow Ranger (usually Marvelous or Joe) whenever a guest Sentai warrior appears.
- Real Men Wear Pink: Wears pink trousers and, in the OP sequence, a bright pink shirt.
- Red Baron: Navi referred to him as the "Awesome Silver Man."
- Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Marvelous and Joe's Manly Men. (One of two)
- Sixth Ranger: To the main team. He also specializes in turning into other Sixth Rangers.
- The Smart Guy: One of two. In his case, he's the Super Sentai expert.
- Squee!: His fanboy side really comes out whenever he meets a member of a past Sentai.
- Super Mode: Gold Mode
- Swiss Army Prong: Gokai Spear
- Team Chef: Seems to have joined Don in this role.
- Token Good Teammate: It sort of comes with being a fanboy.
- The Worf Effect: Played very straight in #31 where Basco breaks his arm.
Navi | Voice Actress: Yukari Tamura
- Catch Phrase: "I'm not a bird!" and "Let's treasure navigate!"
- The Chew Toy: Regularly manhandled by the Gokaigers, especially Marvelous.
- Circling Birdies: A common side effect of repeated concussive predictions. Sometimes they're even tiny circling Navis!
- Cool Gate: Becomes one after the Greater Powers are finally collected, to lead the Gokaigers to their treasure.
- Feather Fingers: He even has opposable thumbs!◊
- Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: Gives one to Don in #43 as he moped for not being able to save Marvelous and the others.
- Gunship Rescue: Just when the Zangyack Fleet was about to annihilate the Earth, Navi shows up in Basco's Free Joker. Bizarrely enough, this act was enough to turn the tide of battle around, since Marvelous and Gai would soon use that to storm the Gigant Horse.
- Japanese Pronouns: "Oira", which leads credence that Navi's male.
- Mr. Exposition
- Mythology Gag: Tends to repeat phrases from past Sentai
- Pirate Parrot
- Poke in the Third Eye: Inverted. 'Correct' predictions only come about after some head trauma.
- Robot Buddy
- Verbal Tic: Kitaneidas' "zoyo" after some predictions.
- All There in the Manual: The official website says that it has vulcans in its helmet, and those silver circles on its "shoulders"note are beam cannons. These only come into play in Dice-O, where GokaiOh's Finishing Move is an Alpha Strike.
- Combining Mecha
- Composite Character: Gao Lion turns into the parts for Shinken GokaiOh, thanks to its red, fire-elemental lion shape matching up with Shinkenger's Shishi Origami. Likewise, the Abaranger power also allows GokaiOh to combine with GoZyuJin.
- Demoted to Extra: The ones that can't be made into toys have only been used once each.
- Subverted in #50, where the team pulls out a bunch of previous one-time powers like the Geki Beasts, Gosei Headders, and Variblune during their fight with the Zangyack invasion fleet.
- Detachment Combat: Most of the Grand Power forms can eject the add-on mecha, which attacks independently for GokaiOh.
- Dragon Rider: Gokaiger vs. Gavan shows Kanzen GokaiOh riding on top of Gavan's own dragon mecha, Denshi Seijuu Dol.
- Elemental Powers

- Flight: Gains the power to fly when using Magiranger or Goranger's Grand Powers.
- Go-On GokaiOh can also fly when Machalcon switches to Hover Mode.
- Humongous Mecha
- Joke Item: Carranger's Great Power is treated this way, at least by Navi.
- Le Parkour: According to the website, Deka GokaiOh can wall-run.
- Mecha Expansion Pack: Several of the Grand Powers provide this, all of which are mecha from past series.
- Magiranger: Magi Dragon

- Abaranger: The arms of GojyuJin.
- Go-onger: Engine Machalcon
- Nice Hat: Puts it on at the end of the combination sequence. Shinken GokaiOh has a samurai helmet instead.
- And now Furaimaru gives GokaiOh a facemask with wing elements on it's sides. Doubles as a Call Back since Senpuujin's helmet had the same touch.
- Kanzen Gokaioh gets a larger pirate hat with the swords sticking out each side of the hat.
- One Mecha Army: In the first episode proves capable of obliterating an entire Zangyack fleet in a matter of minutes. Once all the Great Powers are unlocked, it manages to destroy a large portion of a Zangyack fleet bigger than the one from the Legend War by itself, destroying the entire fleet with help from GoZyuJin and the Legend Mecha. To put that in perspective, an entire army of Sentai Mecha had difficulty dealing with the previous fleet and still had to sacrifice their powers to destroy it.
- Our Centaurs Are Different: Gao GokaiOh is a centauroid mecha, and it resembles Gao Kentaurus.
- Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Any Grand Power mecha formation that is introduced in a two-parter becomes this until the next one. However, subverted in later episodes as all the Legend Mecha are summoned quite frequently.
- The summer episodes have the rangers spam nothing but Hurricane Gokai-Oh.
- Travel Cool: The individual Gokai Machines.
- Weapon of Choice
- Anatomy Arsenal
- Arm Cannon: The Power Energy Cannons mounted in the noses of Joe's Gokai Jet and Don's Gokai Racer.
- Chest Blaster: The Gokai Ho, used for the Gokai Star Burst finisher. As Magi or Shinken GokaiOh, it can shoot fire breath from the animal mouth on its chest.
- Power Fist: Kanzen GokaiOh's left hand, which can also shoot the Kanzen Missiles from its fingers, and become a Rocket Punch for its finisher.
- BFS: Two formations, both of which are used for their Finishing Moves:
- Shinken GokaiOh: Summons a Rekka Daizanto.
- Goran GokaiOh: Merges and enlarges the Gokaiken.
- Double Weapon: Shinken GokaiOh docks its two Gokaiken onto a long handle, turning it into a double-ended naginata.
- Dual Wielding: Uses two giant cutlasses called Gokaiken.
- Energy Weapons: A set of eight beam cannons on the shoulders, which are only ever used in Dice-O.
- Fuuma Shuriken: Hurricane GokaiOh with the Shushutto Shuriken Chain.
- Guns Akimbo: Deka GokaiOh uses parts of the Pat Striker as dual guns.
- Point Defenseless: The standard GokaiOh helmet has vulcans.

- Kanzen GokaiOh: The Kanzen Drill.
- Anatomy Arsenal
- Breath Weapon: GoZyuRex's GoZyu Laser.
- Combining Mecha: Combining its arms with GokaiOh can form GoZyu GokaiOh, the true manifestation of the Abaranger Great Power. It can also combine with GokaiOh and Machalcon to form Kanzen (Complete) GokaiOh.
- Composite Character: Represents the Grand Powers of Timeranger, Zyuranger, and Abaranger all by itself.
- Finishing Move: GoZyu Triple Drill Dreamnote
- Homage: GoZyuRex borrows heavily from Godzilla, just like Dragon Caesar.
- Its tail drill is pure Dragon Caesar, but its body shape is much more like that of the Tyrannosaurus Shugoju.
- One Mecha Army: Manages to, along with Gokai-Oh and the Legend Mecha, completely destroy a Zangyack invasion fleet bigger than the one from the Legend War, which took an entire army of Sentai Mecha and then the Super Sentai sacrificing their powers to destroy.
- Power Gives You Wings: GoZyuJin gains the Mega Winger's wings through the Megaranger's Greater Power.
- Time Travel: It travels back in time from the year 3000 every time Gokai Silver needs it. In the Timeranger tribute episode, Domon tells them to use the Time Yellow Key, which lets them go back one year to the timeframe of Epic on Ginmaku.
- Transforming Mecha: A three-way transformer.
- Weapon of Choice
Engine Machalcon | Voice Actor: Hiroaki HirataEngine no. 13, the son of Speedor and BearRV. A hybrid of a falcon and an F1 racecar, he ultimately helps the Gokaigers completely unlock the Go-Onger Greater Power. He also combines with both GokaiOh and GoZyuJin using the Gokaigers' own Greater Power into Kanzen (Complete) GokaiOh.
- Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: The reason for his behavior on Engine World.
- Flying Car: Like his father.
- Original Generation: To the other Engines. Contrast with the other Legend Mecha, which more or less returned (or were Expies of) from their original series.
- Our Centaurs Are Different: When combined with GokaiOh into Go-On GokaiOh.
- Spin-Offspring: Of Speedor and BearRV. Don't think too hard about it.
- Verbal Tic: "Bari bari!"
Space Empire Zangyack
Emperor Akudos Gill | Voice Actor: Shinji Ogawa
- Authority Equals Asskicking: He manages to completely fend off Marvelous and Gai's attacks at the same time while sitting down. It takes Gai using Gold Mode to force him out of his chair. Obviously you don't get to be the Zangyack Emperor for nothing.
- Bad Boss
- Bigger Bad: Until #41, where he becomes the Big Bad.
- Boring but Practical: He doesn't have any amazing fancy abilities — just a Sword Beam, fireball launchers in his shoulders, and excellent sword skills. He still gives the Gokaiger quite a run for their money.
- Death of a Thousand Cuts: What his demise amounts to. He can shrug off most of the Gokaiger's attacks easily, even Finishing Moves, but they just keep up the onslaught until he finally gets worn down enough to finish off.
- Evil Laugh: Gives a pretty nice one in #50.
- Famous Last Words: "Damn you, space pirates!!"
- Foreshadowing: The Zangyack coat-of-arms has his visage. In #34 we get a close-up of what Zagin bills look like, which also have his face on them. Warz's flashback in #37 shows him on screen, though obscured by lighting, for the first time.
- Four-Star Badass: In the finale, he finally gets off his throne...and proceeds to beat down Marvelous and Gai in Gold Mode.
- Galactic Conqueror: Pretty much rules most of the universe at this point.
- Knight of Cerebus: A stark contrast to his son, he's serious, very cunning, and quite frightening to look at.
- Last Villain Stand: After the Gokaiger destroy the rest of his fleet, The Dragon, and his flagship (with him in it), he challenges the Gokaigers to one final battle.
- Orcus on His Throne: All he's done so far are give orders. Gets up during the finale.
- Of course, during the finale, he easily deflects Marvelous and Gai's attacks at the same time while he's still sitting on his throne.
- Rasputinian Death: He survives: Being trapped in the Gigant Horse as it blows up; being pinned to the main console as it blows up; getting hit by a Gokai Supernova & Slash; getting hit with the powers of every single Super Sentai plus a Gokai Legend Crash; an attack by the six Gokaiger all in Super Modes; and a brand-new Final Wave, the Gokai Shooting Slash. After all that, it takes the team literally shoving the Galleon Buster into his gut and firing it point-blank to kill him. You can definitely understand why they didn't think he was gone at first.
- Slouch of Villainy
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: the Gokaigers lay the beatdown on him using an assortment of keys from practically all the Super Sentai teams, before being finally finished off with a point-blank Gokai Rising Strike.
- Villainous Breakdown: Begins to undergo this when the final battle begins to turn against him, but really undergoes this after Gokai Silver slices his sword in half.
- This Cannot Be!: "Impossible! I am the ruler of all the universe, the Zangyack Emperor, Akudos Gill!" Marvelous' response: "You can whine about it to your son in the afterlife!"
- Wrecked Weapon: Gai's Legendary Crush breaks his sword in half.
- You Have Failed Me: His first action upon taking command is to have Damaras beaten and imprisoned for failing to protect Warz Gill.
Warz Gill | Voice Actor: Hirofumi Nojima
- Alien Blood: His is blue.
- Bad Boss: He often hits and kicks the Gormin when something goes wrong.
- He is also not above using suicide bombers or turning Sid Bamick into a cyborg.
- Big Bad: Until his demise in #38.
- Blue Blood: Figuratively and literally, as we learn in episode 11 after getting shot by Captain Marvelous.
- Dirty Coward: He gets shot once and runs crying. Gets better in the end.
- Disc One Final Boss
- Eye Beams: The trailers for Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen show that he has these.
- General Failure: One gets the very strong impression his position is purely because he's the Zangyack Emperor's son. He proves this wrong occasionally, however, as he is capable of conceiving of brilliant plans later in the series.
- Humongous Mecha: Gets one called Great Warz as a gift from his father in #37. It lasts up until its destruction in #38.
- Killed Off for Real: In #38. And in case you aren't convinced, the next episode's first scene is of a front page in a space newspaper with the headline reading in big bold letters that he's dead.
- Large Ham
- Laughably Evil: While he can get some nasty plans that even makes Damaras disgusted, he still can't escape from his childish, sometimes hilarious, antics.
- Minor Injury Overreaction: In #11, his bicep gets grazed by a shot from Marvelous and starts getting hysterical. Not much of a surprise, really...
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: In #37, his dad sends him the Great Warz. He instantly tells Damaras off, having been aware the entire time Damaras was playing babysitter for him and playing dumb. He then successfully lures the Gokaiger into his trap and proceeds to effortlessly curbstomp them with the Great Warz. Even more impressive, he'd memorized Machalcon's attacks and dodged them!
- Obfuscating Stupidity: #37 reveals he was playing dumb at least part of the time, as he knew Damaras was sent by his dad to be his babysitter. Considering he effectively lures the Gokaigers into a trap and had the foresight to prepare for Machalcon's attacks in preperation for the battle once he actually had the power to do something about it, he might not be nearly as stupid as he seemed...
- Overlord Jr.
- Pet the Dog: Flips his shit when Barizorg is killed, and when battling the Gokaigers who just unlocked their Super Mode, one of his thoughts is for his henchman Barizorg. This kind of mirrors Barizorg's own Undying Loyalty to him.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Flies into one after Barizorg is killed. Unfortunately for him, it leads to his demise.
- Smug Snake: Deliberately turns down an intelligent strategy in episode 9 purely to massage his own ego.
- Spoiled Brat: He behaves like an angry five year old when he doesn't get his way.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy
- We Have Reserves
Damaras | Voice Actor: Kouji Ishii
- Authority Equals Asskicking: Now that he finally fight on the battlefield directly, he shows why he is the commander of the Zangyack army by owning both Basco in his true form and all the Gokaigers.
- Avenging the Villain: His goal before his death.
- Breaking the Bonds: he was a prisoner until #42, as soon as he was given by the emperor a second chance at the Gokaigers' heads, he not only does this, but destroys his cell as well. In other words, he could break out any time he wanted to.
- The Comically Serious: not really prominent, but there was episode 24, where he's left in charge of the air-headed Monster of the Week...and let's not even get to his singing voice.
- Commander Contrarian: Ultimately subverted; while Warz (and the audience) suspected Damaras thanks to his actions in several episodes, he really was loyal and acted out of concern for Warz's well-being.
- Cool Sword: Has one, which suspiciously looks like Kamen Rider OOO's Medalijabur.
- The Dragon
- Dragon-in-Chief: Damaras is far more competent than Warz Gill, who frequently ignores his useful advice.
- Even Evil Has Standards: He's genuinely disgusted by Warz Gill's plan to use an action commander as a suicide bomb in episode 17.
- Evil Laugh: Only gets to do it one time, and it's a short one, but it's great.
- Four-Star Badass: He's a Zangyack General and is called "The Strongest Man in Space". In #42, he fights the Gokaiger head-on and proves that he deserves the name.
- Gatling Good: Attached to his Badass Cape; it's more of a coat he wears as a cape and the guns are in the dangling sleeves.
- Genre Savvy
- Killed Off for Real: As of #43.
- Never Got to Say Goodbye: A variation. Warz dies believing that Damaras hated him and thought him a fool; it turns out he was wrong and Damaras was loyal, but Warz never gave him the chance to explain.
- Only Sane Man: He's the only one among the Zangyack command who seems to be taking the conquest of Earth seriously and often calls Warz Gill's plans out for being stupid.
- Rasputinian Death: Both times! The first time he gets hit by a Final Wave from Gokai Red and Gokai Green, a Red Charge Rising Strike, and then a Green Charge Rising Strike. After growing to giant size, he gets hit by the individual attacks of each of the Legend Mecha and then with the Gokai Kanzen Super Burst. For the record, just the last one would probably normally be considered overkill!
- Red Baron: Known as the "Strongest High Ranked Soldier".
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: In #42, he's given the chance to get revenge for Warz Gill's death. The first thing he does is track down Basco and (after kicking his ass) tell him "You're going to help me get those pirates or else". The second thing he does is completely and totally own all six Gokaiger at the same time. The episode ends with him dragging Marvelous off, saying that he'll suffer a thousand times the humiliation Damaras suffered for Warz's death.
- Sword Beam: Seems to be his main method of attack.
Insarn | Voice Actress: Kikuko Inoue
- Abhorrent Admirer: Becomes this towards Kyousuke Jinnai in episode 14
- Dark Chick
- Evil Genius
- Killed Off for Real: In #49 at the hands of the Gokaigers.
- Make My Monster Grow: She invented the Monster Grower machine. Ironically, she doesn't have this happen to her, using a giant mecha first, then facing the Gokaigers personally after it's destroyed. She just gets destroyed by the Gokaigers but isn't grown.
- The Smurfette Principle
- Whip It Good: Of the energy whip variety.
Barizorg | Voice Actor: Gaku Shindo
- Brainwashed and Crazy: He was converted into an obedient cyborg after rebelling against Zangyack.
- The Brute
- Catch Phrase: "Yes, Boss."
- Cool Sword: A nasty-looking three-bladed one, too.
- Cybernetics Eat Your Soul
- Evil Former Friend: Sid was Joe's mentor and friend when both were still a part of Zangyack.
- A Fate Worse Than Death: Sid's transformation was revealed to be irreversible in #30.
- Killed Off for Real: In #38, by Joe, no less.
- Master Swordsman
- Was Once a Man
- Yes-Man: To the point in which his catchphrase is "Yes, Boss."
Dogormin, Sugormin and Gormin
- Mecha-Mooks: The Gormin
- Elite Mooks/ Mook Lieutenant: The Sugormin
- Praetorian Guard: the Dogormin, on the other hand, are bodyguards to the Zangyack Emperor himself and are stronger than the average Action Commander.
- Transforming Mecha: Sugormin turn into combat aircraft, and as of #9, bikes.
- Law of Chromatic Superiority: Dogormin are basically Sugormin colored red and with functioning hands.
- Real Life Writes the Plot: The reason you only ever see three Sugormin at once (except in scenes that use greenscreening) is because Toei only had three suits made. The same is apparently true for the Dogormin, who only appear in pairs.
Dailando and Zatsurig
- Attack Its Weak Point: Zatsurig's third eye.
- Co-Dragons: To Akdos Gil for one episode. Zatsurig is killed shortly afterwards, leaving Dailando as the remaining Dragon, a position that is further solidified after Damaras bites it.
- Drop the Hammer: Dailando like anything.
- Eye Scream: The Gokaigers decided that, if they ever stand a chance against Zatsurig, they have to destroy the source of his powers first.
- A God Am I: Zatsurig claims to be viewed as a "God of Destruction" throughout the universe.
- Gratuitous English: Dailando uses a fair bit of it.
- Informed Ability: Dailando is supposedly the more powerful of the two, but hasn't really done anything to prove it save for his hammer.
- He spends the final episode facing off with Joe, Don, Luka and Ahim and though he puts up a good fight he still goes down with even less of a fight than Zatsurig did.
- Japanese Pronouns: Dailando uses mii/yuu
- Smug Snake: Both of them.
- Squishy Wizard: Zatsurig. While he was able to destroy entire planets, once his third eye was destroyed, he proved no match for the Gokaigers.
- Superpower Lottery: Zatsurig has an eye on his chest that grants him Game Breaker powers.
- Verbal Tic: Dailando's "choichoichoi" borders on this.
- Villainous Breakdown: Dailando's cheery Smug Snake persona finally slips after the Gokaigers return and utterly demolish his army, leaving him dumbfounded as to where their newfound power comes from and actually cursing them.
Basco ta Jolokia | Actor: Kei Hosogai
- Alien Blood: It's green.
- Badass Normal: As shown in episode 20, he can fight evenly with a transformed Marvelous without the Ranger Keys.
- Turns out he's not so normal in episode 31. His true form is a monstrous body covered in red armor, with enough power to own the Gokaigers singlehandedly.
- Big Bad Wannabe: Is a very big threat on his own, but the Zangyack Empire is still the biggest threat around. Even after he breaks ties with them, he's still defeated before they are. Meta-wise, it's subverted, where Basco is also a highly competent Knight of Cerebus, so the threat he gives out feels bigger as the Gokaiger usually treats other Zangyack Action Commanders like "Nothing special".
- Breaking Speech: In #48, he tells Marvelous that Aka Red didn't care about the Greatest Treasure in the Universe, he just wanted to give the Ranger powers back to the Earthlings so they could protect that Insignificant Little Blue Planet, and he risked their lives to do so. He says "I didn't betray the Red Pirates, it was Aka Red who was going to betray us from the start. Marvelous retorts that he doesn't care; he's a Gokaiger, and anyone who gets in the way of their dreams is going down — even if it's Aka Red.
- Catch Phrase: Tends to say "Yoroshikuu~!" and "Jaa ne!" to our heroes a lot - it helps that Kei Hosogai's Surprisingly Good English tends to leak into his Japanese accent, making his delivery stand out more. Also, whenever the Gokaigers (normally Marvelous) say they are going to defeat him, he responds with "Dekiru ka nā?" ("I wonder if you can?").
- Usually right before a victory (for him) or a turning point in his favor: "In order to get something, you have to give something up."
- Kei Hosogai's Surprisingly Good English is actually not so surprising, because he spent most of his childhood in Washington State (including graduating from high school there), with a few years spent in Hawaii as well.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Betrays AkaRed and the Red Pirates, and will probably betray everyone else for his own gain. He also betrays and literally backstabs Damaras, which contributes to the latter's demise and also severing his ties with the Zangyack.
- In #47, he betrays his only friend left, Sally.
- Combat Pragmatist: He himself states that he doesn't like playing by the rules.
- The Dandy: While all the space pirates have a unique sense of fashion, the hat and feathers make Basco look a little flouncy even compared to the others. Also, while he isn't exactly averse to a battle, he does tend to let Sally and the droids do most of the heavy lifting.
- Elemental Powers: What his Giant Battle Pseudo-Lifeforms are based on. In chronological order:
- Enemy Summoner: He can creates clones of any ranger with his trumpet by using their Ranger Keys.
- Equivalent Exchange: His personal philosophy is "You can't gain something without giving something else up". He gave up his friends in the Red Pirates in order to work with Zangyack, and later sacrificed Sally in order to steal the Galleon, Ranger Keys, and Navi.
- Evil Counterpart: He's pretty much Marvelous without morality, honor, or trust in anyone.
- Evil Former Friend: To Marvelous - he betrayed the Red Pirates to the Zangyack.
- Expy: Through his fighting style, near trolling tendencies and the nature of the show, it's easy to say he's one to Kaitou/Kamen Rider Diend. However, unlike Daiki, he's quite devoid of redeeming qualities.
- Faux Affably Evil: He may show empathy in his mannerisms, as well as him using the pet name "Marvey-chan" for Marvelous. But trust us, Basco's anything BUT a nice guy.
- Fifth Ranger: To the Four Bad Band, as well as being able to literally summon Sixth Rangers.
- Gotta Catch Them All: He succeeded in finding the Sixth Ranger keys that the Gokaigers were missing. He also has the Extra Hero keys as well. He's now attempting to track down the Great Powers as well (he has about five that we know of).
- Go Out with a Smile: When his betrayal of Sally backfires fatally, he has a moment of shock - and then can't stop himself grinning.
- Human Aliens: Subverted. His true form is a Zangyack-like monster.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: In his final duel with Marvelous, what ends up saving Marvelous's life is... a piece of the bomb necklace that he had put on Sally as part of The Plan in the previous episode. Granted that Basco was already pretty much dead at that point, but it prevented the Goukaiger's victory from turning pyrrhic.
- Marvelous used Basco's own sword to pin him down for the final blow as well.
- I Am Not Left-Handed: After losing his keys to the Gokaigers a second time, he reveals his true form, a form that, according to his claims, scared even Akared. There's a reason why he had a 3 million Zagin bounty on his head, and it's not because he cooked meals for the Red Pirates.
- Instrument of Murder: Basco has a trumpet that when played with Ranger Keys set, can summon those keys as mindless evil copies of those rangers. The trumpet is also capable of stealing the Ultimate Power from past Sentai who carry it.
- Invincible Villain: Whenever it looks like the Gokaiger have him against the wall, he finds some way out of it. Marv has to pull a borderline Taking You with Me stunt to finish him off.
- It's All About Me: This pretty much defines him. He's willing to do just about anything to get what he wants.
- I Have Your Comrades: Holds Joe, Don, Ahim and Luka hostage for the Ranger Keys.
- Karmic Death: He made a habit of betraying everyone who ever worked with him...And both his attempts to kill Marvelous were thwarted due to Sally betraying him, allowing Marvelous to finish him off.
- Killed Off for Real: By Captain Marvelous in episode 48.
- Knight of Cerebus: He's the first villain to truly give the Gokaigers a hard time, and he's more brutal and underhanded than anything the Zangyack had thrown at the Gokaigers so far. So, plots that involve him have a higher degree of seriousness than the ones where the pirates go against the Zangyack.
- Lack of Empathy: Has absolutely no compassion for anyone except himself.
- #39, however, shows he does have some degree of sympathy towards Sally, when he saves it from being finished off by Gokai Red and Gokai Silver. Though that may have simply been Pragmatic Villainy, considering he can't summon his Monsters of the Week without her.
- #47 confirms the latter, where he flat-out blows up Sally in a Batman Gambit.
- Marionette Master: Can summon the physical forms of the past Sixth Rangers.
- No Body Left Behind: After being killed by Marvelous, his body vanishes into red smoke.
- Near Villain Victory: Manages to defeat the Gokaiger, steal all their Ranger Keys, steal their home base, and come very close to getting the Greatest Treasure In The Universe. If it weren't for Navi delaying him and alerting the Gokaigers to his location, he would've won.
- Oh Crap!: Has this reaction for the first time when his Gokaiger Ranger Key clones are revealed to be the real ones, now with their guns pointed right at him. He has another one later on when Marvelous turns out to be alive, meaning he's not only dead, he failed to take Marvelous with him.
- One-Winged Angel: Reveals that he can transform into an armoured creature not unlike the Zangyack, and utterly curb stomps the Gokaigers
- Pet the Dog: Shows concern for Sally and even blocks a Final Wave meant for him/her/it. Though it's also quite possible he still needs her for his Monsters of the Week. Horrifically subverted when he blows her up in episode 47 without any remorse whatsoever.
- Pragmatic Villainy:
- Refuses to kill the Gokaigers, not because he cares about them, but because it will be a lot easier to get all the Ultimate Powers from them than it would be to hunt down the different Sentai teams one by one. This results in a very interesting situation in episodes 42-43, wherein Sally actually quickly grabs them away from the explosion that allegedly consumed them, and he literally backstabs Damaras. This is also because he needs the Gokaigers alive in order to steal the Ultimate Powers they've already obtained.
- This may also be the reason he protects Sally, without her he can't summon his Monsters of the Week. Confirmed in #47 when she runs out. She instantly becomes expendable.
- Privateer: Works as one for the Zangyack empire, pirating on its enemies to avoid a bounty.
- Punny Name: His name comes from Tabasco (hot sauce) and the Bhut Jolokia (one of the hottest chili peppers in the world.) Possibly also a reference to privateer/explorer Vasco da Gama.
- Psycho for Hire: While he is working for the Zangyack for the reward, it's also very clear that he's having a blast doing it.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Marvelous' red. (One of two)
- The Rival: To Marvelous.
- Selfish Evil: In-Universe, this is pretty much his creed, he's willing to do absolutely anything to get what he wants, from betraying his own teammates on a regular basis, threaten to kill children, and even killing the closest thing he had to a Morality Pet in coldblood. He rather gleefully admits he's this whenever he gets the chance.
- Smug Smiler: Constantly wears an arrogant, smarmy smile on his face. He DIES wearing it.
- The Sociopath: Fits this perfectly.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Even with the large letter "B" on his coat of arms, Bandai and Toei romanize his name as "Vasco."
- Sword and Gun: Just as the Gokaigers have their Gokai Saber and Gokai Gun, Basco has this combination as well with his CariBlade cutlass and the CariBlaster gun.
- This Is Unforgivable!: His treatment and cold blooded murder of Sally got this reaction from the Gokaigers.
- Troll: He just loves messing with Marvelous. As expected for the Diend Expy.
- The Unfettered
- The Worf Effect: Gets utterly curbstomped by Damaras in #42 to show off the latter's power.
- Would Hurt a Child: Has absolutely no qualms about threatening a child's life in an attempt to force Matsuri Tatsumi to hand over her Great Power. And he was entirely willing to go through with it if Ahim hadn't switched places with Matsuri to trick him.
- Again in #39, where he plants bombs throughout Moroboshi High School and threatens to blow the building up unless Kenta hands over Megaranger's Grand Power. The Gokaigers, with the help of the students, manage to stop it.
- Xanatos Gambit: You defeat his Sixth Ranger Keys? He has more. You defeat those? He still has spare Ranger Keys. You beat those? He's got a monster form and demonstrates his power. Betray him? He's planted a bomb on you. Just about anytime something seems to weaken him, he's got some kind of backup plan. Marvelous had to use Sally's Macguffin to make sure Basco would die and he'd come out alive.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Subverted. After the Gokaigers destroy his last two Pseudo-Lifeforms, he instantly tells Sally that now that she's out of their Monsters of the Week, she's no longer worth keeping around, opening fire on her pointblank. It turns out this was a Batman Gambit to try and get the Gokaiger's Ranger Keys. Double Subverted when its revealed his backup plan involved blowing her up to wound Marvelous.
- Cymbal-Banging Monkey
- Enemy Summoner: Can summon monsters called "Giant Battle Pseudo-Lifeforms" (based on different elements.)
- Everything's Better with Monkeys: Or worse...
- Heel–Face Door-Slam
- Heroic Sacrifice: In a Death Equals Redemption moment, she stuffs the bomb that Basco planted on her chest compartment when Marvelous tried to pull it off of her, containing the blast enough to save his life.
- Morality Pet: to Basco. Until he eventually blows her up without any remorse.

- Heel–Face Turn: tells the Gokaigers that the reason why they were in the Makuu Prison was because they renounced their evil ways, and the Zangyack weren't happy about it. In fact, the last time Kegalesia and her cohorts appeared (during Shinkenger vs. Go-Onger) you could argue that they have already made their turn.

- The Smart and Big Guy: Of his team.
Furaimaru | Voice actor: Hironori MiyataA mechanical ninja summoned from the Hurricaneger's Karakuri Balls, who allowed the Hurricanegers and Goraigers to combine their mecha. Like Gao Lion, he is the original character (with some changes) and thus qualifies as a returning character.
- A Mech by Any Other Name
- Adaptation Dye-Job: If you can call body color scheme a "dye". He was originally dark blue in Hurricaneger, but here his color is changed to green.
- Big Damn Heroes: He helps Gai fight Sandaaru Jr. (though honestly it's more like he killsteals Sandaaru) before the Gokaiger have earned Hurricaneger's Grand Power.
- Combining Mecha

Gai Yuuki/Black Condor | Actor: Toshihide WakamatsuWomanizer and second in command of the Jetmen, who died at the finale of Jetman. Appears in episode 28, where he makes a short trip to the living world to meet the Gokaigers.
- Back from the Dead: Subverted. He went back to heaven once it's over.
- Backup from Otherworld: He didn't come back to help the Gokaiger, but the original Jetman to prevent them from being pulled into the fight. Despite being dead, he's more than capable of fighting and can even transform into Black Condor.
- Chess with Death: He is at the beginning playing a card game with a woman who is later implied to be God. Dialogue suggests that winning the hand is apparently what allows him to leave the bar.
- Continuity Nod: Gai sits on the same bench where he died in the end of Jetman, and mentions how beautiful the sky is, which were some of his last words.
- Cool Sword: Bringer Sword
- Expy: As per the original Jetman, Gai is based off of Joe the Condor from Gatchaman.
- Grave Marking Scene: It's shown that his former teammates have recently left presents by his graveside (including an Ako-chan noodle cup), implying that they still visit it regularly.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: More "I Just Want My Friends To Be Normal", part of the reason he returns to Earth is to keep the Gokaigers from drawing his teammates away from their normal lives.
- I See Dead People: The Gokaiger, the Monster of the Week and the Gormins see and interact with him as normal, but Gai Ikari just sees them talking to and flailing around at empty air. When he learns who they're speaking with, he's very upset that he's missing the chance to meet another legendary Ranger and theorizes that only he was unable to see him because he's an Earthling while everyone else is of alien nature.
- Mundane Afterlife: Gai's heaven is apparently a jazz club where he gets to sit and play poker with a beautiful woman (who is none other than God - or at least, how s/he appears to him) for all eternity. He seems quite happy with it.
- At one point, we see a door marked "heaven" and not much to let us know what's through it. The scene implies that he could cross over but does not in order to continue watching over his friends.
Joh Ohara/Yellow Lion | Actor: Kazuhiko NishimuraSportsman and second in command of the Livemen. Appears in episode 30.
- Continuity Nod: Now works as a researcher for Academia, the same university he graduated from during Liveman.

Gorou Hoshino/Oh Red | Actor: Masaru ShishidoLeader of the Ohrangers. Appears in episodes 31 & 32.

Shiro Akebono/Battle Kenya | Actor: Kenji OhbaA wild child from the Battle Fever team. Appears in episode 44, where he acts as Santa Claus. He also appears in Gokaiger vs. Gavan, where he tells the Gokaigers that using his Ranger Key with the Denzi Blue Key will allow them to enter the Makuu Space Prison.
- The Cameo: Only appears in two scenes of the Christmas Episode, and you don't realize it's him until the very end, being the most blink-and-miss of the sentai legends, but worry not: he gets more screentime in Gokaiger vs. Gavan.
- Speaks Fluent Animal: Shiro can talk to animals, and his appearances in Gokaiger show him hanging around with a panda (well, more like a guy in a panda suit, but still...).
Tsuruhime/Ninja White | Actress: Satomi HiroseLeader of the Kakurangers. Appears at the end of episode 45.
Ninjaman | Voice Actor: Kazuki YaoAlly to the Kakurangers and a former pupil of the Sanshinshou. Appears in episodes 45 & 46.
- Deader Than Dead: A bit of Ascended Fridge Horror, since the Gokaigers discussed that this would have been his fate if Domon hadn't sent the Gokaigers to the past and protected Negakure Temple. That, or...
- Forgot About His Powers: In Kakuranger, he was capable of growing giant-size on his own to fight alongside the mecha. In #46, the Kakuranger Grand Power is needed to make him giant, and he never changes into Samuraiman.
- Of course, the monster didn't call him "Blue Squirt"...
- It Was with You All Along: HE is the Kakuranger Grand Power. Even Ninjaman himself was surprised.
- Katanas Are Just Better: Ninja Sword
- Sealed Good in a Can
- Sixth Ranger: To the Kakurangers, which made his absence during the Legend War rather peculiar (especially after 199 Heroes revealed that some of the other oddball heroes, such as Signalman and Zubaan, also participated in the battle - his absence was explained in-series, however; see What the Hell, Hero?).
- The Thing That Would Not Leave: How some of the Gokaigers (with the obvious exception of Gai) feel after having Ninjaman stay in the Galleon for a week.
- A Twinkle in the Sky: After a truck crashes into him.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: never appears in the final two episodes; the least the Gokaigers could do was call on him for an extra giant muscle during the invasion.
- What the Hell, Hero?: The Sanshinshō put him back in his jar for 10 years as punishment for going overboard while trying to save a girl from rampaging zoo animals.
- He gives himself one of these when he learns that this lead to him not being there when his comrades and the entire Earth needed him in the Legend War.
