  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: It's the only other red Power Animal in the series, and not only does it ally with GaoRed, it's also one of the most powerful Power Animals.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Its wings are large enough to serve as a shield when held together.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade
  • Noble Bird of Prey: Heroic bird zord.
  • The Phoenix: Evokes this by exiting the volcano on the Animarium. The Phoenix motif is furthered by the implication that GaoFalcon helped in reviving the rest of the Gaorangers and GaoGod.

  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: If she never gave her food to Futaro/Gao God, then Senki's creation may have been averted.note 
  • Really 700 Years Old

  • Team Chef: Her cooking becomes a plot point. It is what allows GaoLion to assume a larger size and kicks off a series of plot events that ultimately lead to Senki's creation.

Ogre Tribe Orgs

Duke Org Yabaiba

Duke Org Tsuetsue

Duke Org Rouki

  • Berserk Button: When Rouki finds out that Shirogane used him (through the Dark Wolf Mask) as power boost for GaoHunter, he was livid.
  • Laughing Mad: While enlarging himself during his final confrontation against the Gaorangers.
  • Magical Flutist
  • Mask Power: The Dark Wolf Mask contains the Thousand Year Evil, which can possess the wearer. Not even the Power Animals are safe from it.
  • Pet the Dog: Instead of killing Sae while he had the chance, he treated the wound on her leg instead. This serves as a hint that it was Shirogane who did that. Rouki would happily kill her, and would've done so if it weren't for Shirogane being his host.
  • Savage Wolves
  • This Cannot Be!: Rouki is having a Villainous Breakdown after GaoHunter broke his horn by using GaoMadillo as a cue ball.
  • Wild Card: He wants to get Revenge on the Gaorangers but has no interest in working with the Orgs at the same time... until Ura came up with a plan to implant a brainwashing grasshopper on him.

High Duke Org Shuten | Voice Actor: Tetsu Inada

High Duke Org Ura | Voice Actor: Tamotsu Nishiwaki

  • Back from the Dead: Twice. First after being killed by GaoSilver and second in the final arc.
  • Batman Gambit: His scheme hinged on quite a few, from the Gaorangers defeating Rouki and releasing the Thousand Year Evil within him, to the Gaorangers defeating the Orgs he made with the evil spirit in order to mature it, and especially Silver finally severing his connection to the evil so he could absorb it himself.
  • Benevolent Boss: Relatively speaking; he treats Yabaiba and Tsuetsue rather well, especially compared to his successor. He even gives them power from the thousand-year evil spirit.
  • The Chessmaster: A particularly brilliant one. Everything he did since he first appeared, from awakening Rouki to creating Orgs with the Thousand Year Evil, was all part of his master plan to achieve his One-Winged Angel form.
  • Disc Two Final Boss
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: His eyes are within nostrils.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: How he dies.
  • Knight of Cerebus: His stint as High Duke coincides with the Gaorangers being curb-stomped by Rouki, then culminates with the death of most of them.
  • Magic Mirror
  • Noblewoman's Laugh
  • One-Winged Angel: And, surprisingly, is effective - enough to kill all of the Gaorangers save Red and Silver.
  • Paper Fan of Doom
  • Sissy Villain: Noblewoman's Laugh? Check. Uses a fan as his weapon of choice? Check. Likes sparkly pretty things? Check, Check, and Check.
  • Villainous Breakdown: The moment when GaoFalcon showed up is where Ura is starting to lose his confidence and ends up screaming after being struck down by the Hyakujuuken.
  • Xanatos Gambit: His using the Thousand Year Evil to create Orgs. Whenever the Gaorangers defeated one, it would just make the evil spirit stronger. As mentioned above, it was more of a Batman Gambit as that was the outcome he really wanted.
