Recap: Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger E 43 To The Legendary Hero
Captain Marvelous is delivered to Akudosu Gill aboard the Gigant Horse and although both Damarasu and Dyrandoh are ready to kill him there and then Gill decides that Marvelous should be given a public execution on Earth. On the Gokai Galleon, Doc is distraught over the loss of his friends and admits to Navi that he made up the magazine article that portrayed him as a hero as a joke. As he remembers when Marvelous first gave him his Mobirate, a message from Damarasu comes over the monitor announcing Marvelous's execution and the later subjugation of Earth. Basco then turns up with Sally in order to watch, and reveals to Marvelous that he has acquired the Greater powers of Sun Vulcan and the Fiveman (bringing his total up to five) as well as intending to steal the twenty-eight that the Gokaigers have collected after Marvelous's death. Doc is ready to give up claiming he can't defeat Damarasu although he wants to, and Navi reminds him of when he first came aboard and learnt how to fight in his own way and how the team always covered for each other. With that, Doc is inspired and arrives on Earth just before Marvelous is executed. While Doc holds off the Gormin, Navi arrives and frees Marvelous which is noticed by Basco who does nothing to stop her. After Marvelous is freed, Doc admits he hasn't thought any further ahead when suddenly Joe, Luka, Ahim and Gai turn up and reveal they were saved from Basco's attack by Sally. Damarasu realises he's been betrayed too late as he is literally stabbed in the back by Basco. After taunting Damarasu that he should not have underestimated Doc, he leaves assuring the Gokaigers he only helped them so they can collect the last two Greater powers. After changing, the Gokaigers defeat the Gormin with an all-green Gokai Change (consisting of Midoranger, Denzi Green, Green Flash, Shishi Ranger, Shurikenger Fire Mode, and Shinken Green) before defeating Damarasu with the Gokai Galleon Buster led by Doc. He is then enlarged by Insarn, and proves more than a match for Gokaioh and Goujyujin however Doc assures everyone they can win. Summoning Magi Dragon, Pat Striker, Gao Lion, Fuuraimaru and Machalcon, the Gokaigers form Kanzen Gokaioh and hit Damarasu with the Gokai Kanzen Super Burst which finally destroys him. Aboard the Gokai Galleon, the Gokaigers enjoy dinner as Doc apologizes for his joke. However the others assure him he truly is a hero before asking for seconds.
