Important things that happened

  • Ozu Kai (MagiRed) tells Doc to know how to get to the Greatest Treasure in the Universe.


Spoiler warning: Significant plot details follow.
  • Sailing into the fog-ridden forest, with their radar failing on them suddenly and Navi blamed for this course, the GokaiGalleon engages a Zangyack battleship in combat before crashing. Doc panics as he suggests they should leave quickly before they are attacked by the battleship's captain, Action Commander Salamandam, who has been sent to Earth to cause mass volcanic eruptions. The Gokaigers battle Salamandam and the Goumin before the Action Commander uses his tail's eruption-invoking powers to separate Captain Marvelous and Doc from the others.
  • The two then meet the mysterious figure in black, the Red Magician Kai Ozu who points out the Gokaigers has yet to use the Ranger Keys' true power. Kai tells them that if they follow him without transforming, he will give them information about the Greatest Treasure in the Universe, using his magic and Heavenly Saint Flagel to hinder them along the way. Though Doc is fearful of the obstacles set up against them, Captain Marvelous manages to bravely overcome Kai's magic.
  • Meanwhile, the other Gokaigers assume the forms of AbareBlack, NinjaBlack, and Go-on Black to take out the Goumin. But when Salamandam arrives, the three take on the forms of Big One, GaoWhite, and White Swan to drive the Action Commander back, causing him to interfere in Captain Marvelous's literal leap of faith to pass Kai's final test.
  • Though frightened to jump to reach Kai, Doc overcomes his fears in order to save his captain's life from a loose boulder while barely making it to the other side. After explaining to Doc how it was courage that gave him and his family the power to fight Infershia many years ago, Kai reveals that Doc has passed his test to see if his courage can release that same power in the MagiRanger Ranger Keys. After revealing the Gokaigers will obtain the Greatest Treasure by mastering the power of all thirty-four Super Sentai, Kai takes his leave as the other Gokaigers arrive when Salamandam emerges again.
  • The Gokaigers proceed, assuming the forms of the MagiRangers to fight him. Doc's courage in the face of danger enables them to perform the binding "Magi Magi Go Gokai" spell to hold the Action Commander at bay while they use the Ozu siblings' signature final attacks to defeat Salamandam along with their own Gokai Blast Final Wave attack. When Salamandam and the Sugoumin enlarge, Gokai-Ou is overpowered by the four opponents before the MagiRanger Ranger Keys react to the situation. Using them, the Gokaigers summon Magi Dragon from within Gokai-Ou, turning the giant robot into Magi Gokai-Ou which takes out the Sugoumin with its new powers before performing the Gokai Magi Bind finishing attack to destroy Salamandam.
  • With Kai seeing Flagel off to MagiTopia, he sees his power is in the right hands as he takes his leave. On the GokaiGalleon, the crew apologizes to Navi for doubting his fortune, before accidentally upsetting the robot parrot once more.

Sentai References

  • The episode title, Transforming Courage into Magic ~Maagi Magi Go Gokai~, follows the format of MagiRanger episode titles which include a spell in them.
  • The clothes of Kai are the same as in the final episode of MagiRanger.
  • Kai is helped by Flagel in order to be able to put the two Gokaiger through a series of tests. Flagel is the Heavenly Saint from which Kai as MagiRed draws his power. Throughout the episode, it appeared as it Kai was using magic, but it isn't until the end that it is revealed that Flagel was doing it. This is an important point because it emphasizes that the former Rangers have lost their powers, since Kai is the first former Ranger that the Gokaigers meet.
  • Genda Tesshou who voices MagiPhone later voices Gorisaki Banana on Go-Busters.
