Go To

Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle is a film released on June 11, 2011, to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Super Sentai Series. The film stars the casts of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger and Tensou Sentai Goseiger, among the 199 total heroes from the Super Sentai series.

After combining their powers to destroy the first Zangyack Empire invasion force, the powers of the Super Sentai were scattered throughout the universe until they were picked up by the Gokaigers in the form of the Ranger Keys. Seeking to reclaim their powers, the Goseigers ambush the Gokaigers and reclaim their Ranger Keys, leading to a conflict between the two Sentai teams. As this is going on, the second Zangyack Empire invasion force forms an alliance with a revived Black Cross Army comprised of past Super Sentai foes in order to destroy the Super Sentai. Thus, to fight against this new enemy, the Gokaigers and the Goseigers team up.

Tropes

  • All There in the Manual: The pamphlet for this movie reveals that a majority of the secondary mecha were severely damaged during the Legendary War.
    • Turns out Doggie Kruger (Deka Master) is close friends with Retsu Ichijoji (Gavan). In fact, it's one of the reasons this picture was taken during the filming of 199 Heroes even though Retsu is not in the movie. Though it seems that according to Tetsu Inada's twitter, Dekamaster/Doggie Kruger will not be in Gokaiger vs Gavan at all.
      • Instead, they get to meet each other in Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger vs. Space Sheriff Gavan.
    • Dead heroes like Rio, Mele, Burai etc. were brought back to life to fight in the Legend War. Who brought them back isn't clear. Apparently Rio and Mele being killed in the series and then revived to fight Long in Go-onger vs. Gekiranger is mentioned in the 199 Hero Movie pamphlet as something that happened, so this adds a bit more evidence that Gokaiger incorporates everything as "canon."
  • Back from the Dead: The Black Cross King is revived from hell due to the villains hatred of Super Sentai, bringing Brajira of the Messiah, Hades God Dagon and Yogoshimacritein with him as his three lieutenants. Also, during the giant battle, while Brajira summons his past forms, Dagon and Yogoshimacritein summon other members of their villain group.

    • Some deceased Super Sentai members themselves like Black Condor and Dragon Ranger came back from the dead for a short while.
  • Badass Army: In addition to the Super Sentai army, at the climax the people of the city's hope summons an entire army of Sentai Mecha to aid in the Final Battle.
  • Bad Boss: Dagon's reaction to all his mooks suddenly turning into illusions of the Gokaigers and Goseigers is to start tearing through them hunting for the real things. This ends up being his downfall, as the real things were waiting for the right moment to get him.
  • Batman Cold Open: After the Legend War opening, the Gokaigers are seen fighting Insarn, Barizorg with the Zugormin and Gormin.
  • BFG: The Gokaigers and Goseigers use the Super Sentai Bazooka to destroy the Black Cross King for the first time.
    • Black Cross King also has one, except it's apparently not for battle; instead, he uses it to transform the Ranger Keys into his mindless drones.

  • BFS: Goren GokaiOh's Gokai Hurricane Cassiopeia is even bigger than the mecha-sized Rekka Daizantou wielded by Shinken GokaiOh. Justified in that it is used to destroy the gigantic villain and appropriately named Black Cross Colossus.
  • Big Badass Battle Sequence: The Legend War, extended version.
  • Big Bad: The Black Cross King, the revived Big Bad of the original Himitsu Sentai Goranger.
  • Big Good: Akaranger, who leads the 34 Sentai in the Legend War and is the primary voice when the Gokaigers and Goseigers meet past heroes.
  • Book-Ends: The battle against the possessed Ranger Keys begins with the Gokaigers and Goseigers engaging the Gorangers, followed by the teams preceding the Goseigers (Gekiranger, Go-Onger, Shinkenger), right before being blown by several BFG team attacks. The last leg of the battle is a Beam-O-War against the same teams, ending with Gokai Red and Gosei Red finishing off the Gorengers.
  • Call-Back: When Eri and Ahim do their combo attack, it's called Double Pink Attack #2. When Ahim asks why it's #2, Eri just remarks that #1 is already executed, which was during Goseiger vs Shinkenger (the one Eri did with Mako).
  • Chekhov's Gun: The Variblune and DaiDenzin toys.
  • Clap Your Hands If You Believe: The climax of the movie contains probably one of the most awesome examples of this trope in the history of fiction. When the Gokai-Oh and Gosei Great are badly beaten and nearly defeated by Black Cross Colossus, the people watching the fight from all over the city start cheering as hard as they can in support of the Sentai, unwilling to give up hope. The power generated by the people's support not only fully recharges the two mecha, but also transforms several super sentai toys into AN ENTIRE ARMY OF FULL-SIZED ROBOS. Epic showdown ensues.
  • Continuity Cameo: Tsuyoshi Kaijou, Soukichi Banba, Daigorou Oume, Kanpei Kuroda, Rei Tachibana, Shirou Gou, Riki Honoo, Ryo of the Heavenly Fire Star, Koume "Umeko" Kodou, Satoru Akashi, Saki Rouyama, Chiaki Tani and Genta Umemori, and obviously the full Tensou Sentai Goseiger roster.
  • Continuity Nod: The Goseigers still have their angel wings that they earned in the final episode.
  • Cool Old Guy: Denzi Blue, Big One, Aka Ranger…
  • Demoted to Dragon: While Brajira and Yogoshimacritein were the Big Bads of their respective series, and Dagon is the third The Heavy/Dragon-in-Chief in his own, in this movie they are the loyal servants of the Black Cross King. Fitting, as he is the original Sentai Big Bad.
  • De-Power: It has already been established that the 34 Sentai sacrificed their powers to resolve the Legend War, but at end of the prologue we get to see the Goseigers finding this out.
  • Designated Girl Fight: When the Goseigers and the Gokaigers fight each other, Gokai Yellow of course takes on Gosei Yellow while Gokai Pink takes on Gosei Pink.
    • Later when the two teams take on the first 33 Sentai, during the phase of the battle when they fight their own colours, Ahim and Eri take on Pink Rangers along with a few female White Rangers. Half and Half with Luka and Moune's fight with the Yellow Rangers, as half of them are female and the other half are male.
  • Despair Event Horizon: The people of Tokyo almost goes through this during the Black Cross Colossus' rampage, as they watched their Sentai champions easily defeated. When they defy this, a miracle happens.
  • Deus ex Machina: The climactic final battle of the movie is epic and heartwarming, but admittedly, there's no real explanation for why dozens of kids' toys can suddenly transform into full-sized copies of the main Humongous Mecha of each preceding Sentai team.
    • That's due to the miracle of the Goseigers which they are well known for.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: The Combination Attack between Gosei Black and Gokai Green.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Gokai Silver makes a cameo in the end-credits sequence. Gai is first introduced in #17 and this movie takes place between #16 and #17.
  • Escaped from Hell: The Black Cross King specifically says he and the other villains have returned from Hell to enact their revenge.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Averted. The returned Black Cross King manages to avoid this by having an agreement with Warz Gill, Zangyack will let the Black Cross King destroy the Super Sentai and then the Black Cross King will let Warz do as he wishes with Earth.
  • Fake Shemp: A Tokusatsu staple, almost all previous rangers are featured in the opening battle despite only a handful of the actual characters actually appear unhenshined.
    • Also worth noting since suit actors have been known to portray multiple roles, some heroes are portrayed by different suit actors than the original. Though given how old some of the originals must be, they may not have appeared due to age as well.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: The battle with the Black Cross Army is what makes the Goseigers and the Gokaigers bond.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: The Go-Onger part of the ending theme. Look closely at how Joe and Doc (as Go-On Blue and Green, respectively) pull off the group Hurricane Kick.
  • Foreshadowing: When there's a prominent shot of individual Sentai heroes in the Legend War, that character will appear prominently later in the movie (some even in the main series).
    • Subverted for some like Red Falcon and Shinken Red. Instead, Yellow Lion and Hime Shinken Red became the representatives instead.
  • Funny Background Event: While Yogoshimacritein gives his rant to the Gokaigers and Goseigers, you can see a couple of his mooks struggling with holding his hammer.
    • After summoning the Super Sentai Bazooka, Go-On Green stumbles on his feet.
    • The ending credits, where it shows the Gokaigers transformed into the previous Sentai (evidenced by the various Gendered Outfits): Gokai Green makes a weird pose during the Sun Vulcan part, and Gokai Pink gets embarrassed when she's the only one that didn't transform into the Abarangers. But then, considering what her correspondent in this Sentai would turn out to be...
  • Humongous Mecha: All 35 main mecha are united in the giant battle.
  • Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: Brajira vs. the Red Rangers has shades of this.
  • In Name Only: Inverted. Essentially this is a versus movie as it has all the elements of one including a fight scene between the two teams, however the official versus movie is Gokaiger vs. Gavan.
  • Jidai Geki: Yogoshimacritein's lair.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Agri, Moune, Joe and Luka get warped into a Jidai Geki-looking environment, which they believe to be time travel at first - but the truth presents itself when Yogoshimacritein shows up with a filming crew. Not only are they still in the present, but the location actually is Toei's own Jidai Geki set.
    • And just so you get it, Yogoshimacritein unveils his own self-styled Vanity Plate - which Agri smashes with his FIST.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: The Gokaigers and Goseigers skirmish in the beginning over the Goseigers' Ranger Keys.
  • Me's a Crowd: In the mecha fight, Brajira summons his past forms to fight against the army of Super Sentai mecha.
  • Mooks: The Gormin Sailors and Sugormin appear at the beginning and the main three revived villains (under the Black Cross King), Brajira, Dagon and Yogoshimacritein summon their respective mooks, Bibi Soldiers, Zobils and Ugatz.
  • Mythology Gag: The meeting of three Sentai Alumni to help a salaryman is explicitly a reference to the three separate Super Sentai periods (Daigoro Oume [Showa], Ryo [Heisei I] and Umeko [Heisei II]).
  • No Swastikas: Semi-present; the Black Cross King explicitly states in his speech to the civilians that he was once known as the Black Cross Fuhrer.
  • Non-Serial Movie: Averted. 199 Heroes is completely in-continuity with Gokaiger (taking place between episodes 16 and 17) and advances the story by having the team gain (and keep) 11 greater powers. The events of the movie are even directly referenced in later episodes of the show.
  • Oh, Crap!: BCK when he sees all the Ranger Keys brought to life in front of him, and later, as the Black Cross Castle, when the 33 Humongous Mecha appear to aid Gosei Great and GokaiOh.
  • One-Winged Angel: As in the original series, the Black Cross King's true form is the Black Cross Castle.
  • Pet the Dog: How Alata realizes that Marvelous is not such a bad guy, when the latter shields a couple of civilians from Brajira's attacks.
  • The Power of Hate: The Black Cross King is powered by the undying hatred of all previous defeated villains.
  • Rousing Speech: Twice:
    • First by the Sentai alumni, speaking through their Ranger Keys, when the Black Cross King has the Goseigers and Gokaigers on the ropes.
    • The second time is when the salaryman at the subplot of the movie and the Goseigers' friend Nozomu are rallying the people of Tokyo to snap out of their Despair Event Horizon, and cheer on the Super Sentai protecting them.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Two sets.
    • Alata and Marvelous
    • Don and Agri
  • Superdickery: The very first scene of the first trailer depicts the Rangers fighting one another, with the narration even declaring confusion over what's going on.
  • Super Mode: During the battle with the past 33 Sentai, the Goseigers become Super Goseiger, but the Gokaigers have no Super Mode.
  • Team Handstack: Shortly before the melee with the Ranger clones. For some reason, Gosei Knight isn't included.
    • Gosei Knight may be fine in working alongside the Goseigers or any other Super Sentai teams in general but he usually works alone and does not do fist bumps, hand stacks, etc.
  • Theme Music Power-Up: When the Humongous Mecha of all the previous Sentai teams join forces, the extended Goranger theme song plays throughout the fight as they beat down multiple previous enemies that were brought back to life.
    • Also in the beginning of the movie, with the extended Legend War scene, the music is replaced by the extended version of the Goseiger theme.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: Upon seeing the army of possessed Ranger Keys, what does Hyde say?
    Even if they're not the real thing...this is going to hurt.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: In Go-onger, Yogoshimacritein was the Vile Villain to Go-onger's Saccharine Show. Here, he behaves exactly like his Goldfish Poop Gang-leading son, Yogostein, did, trying to make a movie out of his defeat of some of the Gokaigers and Goseigers, and ultimately being defeated by the yellow warriors distracting him by asking him for an autograph. Rule of Funny at work, and probably done to make him more distinct from the other villains.
  • Time Stands Still: The Red Rangers are explicitly trapped in limbo when fighting Brajira, where everything around them is frozen in time.
  • Villainous Breakdown: As the Black Cross King is split in two by the Gokaigers' Gokai Hurricane: Cassiopeia, he expresses his disbelief in rather epic fashion:
    'Black Cross King:' How can this happen to me?! I was born of undying hatred! How-!?!
  • Villain Team-Up: The Black Cross King brings several previous villains back as his underlings.
    • His first act in the film is to approve his plan with the Zangyack so they don't fight against him, proving he's Genre Savvy enough to avoid Evil vs. Evil.
  • Visual Pun: Because of the Black Cross Colossus' size, you can say that he's literally curb-stomping GokaiOh, Gosei Great and Gosei Ground.
