Gokaiger is a special anniversary series. Its protagonists are able to transform into not only their own unique, pirate-themed forms, but also all of the previous 34 Super Sentai teams, each of which have their own unique power that the Gokaigers can access.

Kaizoku sentai gokaiger


A group of young pirates come from space to Earth to obtain the "Greatest Treasure in the Universe" (宇宙最大のお宝, Uchū Saidai no Otakara), which can only be acquired after obtaining the "Greater Powers" of the different 34 Super Sentai Teams. However, they end up facing the Space Empire Zangyack, whose earlier invasion forces were wiped out by the 34 Sentai groups long ago before a new invasion force is established under Commander Warz Gill, the emperor's son. As a result, due to their history with the empire, the space pirates use the powers of the older teams and attempt to master their powers to fight the Zangyack forces as the Gokaigers.


The Gokaigers are young space pirates who originally came to Earth to obtain "The Greatest Treasure in the Universe" before getting dragged into fighting the Zangyack. They are based on the Gokai Galleon, which is navigated by their robot parrot Navi (ナビィ, Nabyi), and able to assume the forms of any member from the previous 34 Sentai groups.

Captain Marvelous/Gokai Red (キャプテン・マーベラス/ゴーカイレッド, Kyaputen Māberasu/Gōkai Reddo)
The brash and cocky captain of the Gokai Galleon and team leader.
Joe Gibken/Gokai Blue (ジョー・ギブケン/ゴーカイブルー, Jō Gibuken/Gōkai Burū)
The calm and serious, but loyal first mate.
Luka Millfy/Gokai Yellow (ルカ・ミルフィ/ゴーカイイエロー, Ruka Mirufi/Gōkai Ierō)
A greedy, tomboyish girl and the ship's lookout.
Don Dogoier/Gokai Green (ドン・ドッゴイヤー/ゴーカイグリーン, Don Dogoiyā/Gōkai Gurīn)
The ship's often-timid mechanic and cook. He is usually referred to as Doc (博士, Hakase).
Ahim de Famille/Gokai Pink (アイム・ド・ファミーユ/ゴーカイピンク, Aimu do Famīyu/Gōkai Pinku)
A polite but headstrong princess of another world and thus new to piracy.
Gai Ikari/Gokai Silver (伊狩 鎧/ゴーカイシルバー, Ikari Gai/Gōkai Shirubā)
The sixth member, who is the only Earthling and a Super Sentai fanboy.


The evil Space Empire Zangyack (宇宙帝国ザンギャック, Uchū Teikoku Zangyakku) seeks to take control of the Earth, with the first fleet defeated by the past 34 Super Sentai teams. Commander Warz Gill, the emperor's son, resumes the invasion with a new fleets overseen by his three officers: the elite soldier Chief of Staff Damarasu, the scientist Development Technical Officer Insarn, and the mysterious Special Duty Officer Barizorg. The fleet is composed of Non-Commissioned Officers Zugormin, the Gormin Sailors, Action Commanders, and the occasional hired help from previous organizations that the previous Sentai battled. They are further supported by a privateer named Basco Ta Jolokia, who has his own agenda to carry out with his own arsenal of Ranger Keys and Giant Battle Pseudo-Lifeforms.

Past heroes and villains

To obtain the 34 Greater Powers, the Gokaigers must seek out a representative of one of the past Super Sentai teams who will grant the ability to them. Also, some villains return to wreak havoc as they did in the past.


Several of the episodes in Gokaiger feature and focus on the actions of one of the Legend Sentai. Those episodes are titled in a fashion similar to that of the original series. For example, episode 3, which features Mahou Sentai Magiranger, has a magic spell as part of the title, while episode 7, which features Juken Sentai Gekiranger, features one of the nonsense phrases that series protagonist Jyan Kandou would use.


In addition to the protagonists' debut in Tensou Sentai Goseiger vs. Shinkenger: Epic on Ginmaku, Gokaiger has five theatrical releases where they are the primary characters.

  • The series' ending theme "Super Sentai Hero Getter" lists off all of the Super Sentai series, making reference to their songs and motifs, with each of the three verses of the song being played in rotation. The first verse covers Himitsu Sentai Gorenger through Choujuu Sentai Liveman, which all aired in the Shōwa period; the second covers Kousoku Sentai Turboranger through Mirai Sentai Timeranger, which all aired through the remainder of the 20th century; and the last one covers Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger through Tensou Sentai Goseiger, which were all broadcast in the 21st century. The song is remixed into "Super Sentai Hero Getter ~ 199 ver." from their first team-up movie (eliminating all but one of the choruses) and then "Super Sentai Hero Getter ~ Now & Forever ver." in the final episode, the latter remix covering Gokaiger and Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.
