Trivia / Gosei Sentai Dairanger

  • Actor Allusion: The casting of Hisashi Sakai as the sixth ranger this season is an allusion to the fact that the year before, he played the sixth ranger's child self.
  • Name's the Same: The Kiba Daioh shares its name with the leader of the Kiba Clan from Fist of the North Star.
  • No Export for You: While the monsters, mecha, and Sixth Ranger got used in Power Rangers, the main five ranger suits never did until Super Megaforce 20 years later.
    • The show itself was averted, getting an American release on DVD.
  • The Other Darrin: Sugisaku Imagawa, the actor who originally played Kameo, left the show for health reasons, so his role was taken over by Tomihisa Naruse (who previously played Raita in Choujin Sentai Jetman) from Episode 29 and onward. But since Kameo is just a human disguise of Daimugen, why not?
  • The Other Marty: As shown in the trailer for The Movie, Keiichi Wada (Ryō) and Keisuke Tsuchiya (Kazu) originally had their roles reversed. (The basis for the switch being Wada's actual martial arts skills.)
  • Prop Recycling: Iron-Face Choryu's armor skirt was originally made for Burai from the previous season.
  • Recycled Script: Kujaku's subplot has strong similarity to the "Burai's lifespan" plot from the previous season. Seeking magic healing water to restore life-force, close to the end it's revealed it won't help the person and is instead needed for someone else, at the end character dies and ascends. Additionally, the character is vengeance driven at first and causes damage to heroes and villains alike before having some sense knocked into them.
  • What Could Have Been: Keisuke Tsuchiya was originally cast as Ryō insted of Kazu. Keeping this in mind, recall the episode where Tsuhiya's twin brother played Kazu's evil clone... The Other Marty + Making Use of the Twin = Cloned Red Ranger vs. Real Red Ranger?
  • Working Title: The show was originally going to be titled Daikenger (which roughly means "Great Fist Ranger"). The Japanese Wikipedia page once claimed that Chinaman was a working title, but this was actually disconfirmed by Super Hero Taihen #6. Funnily, the title got used by an unoffical sentai show, and explored a possible What Could Have Been...
