Important things that happened
- First part of Samurai Sentai Shinkenger tribute episodes.
- This episode focused on Joe Gibken and his backstories revealed.
- Gokaiger's first meeting with the commander of the Zangyack fleet, Waruzu Giru.
- Barizorg's identity is revealed.
- While Joe is practicing his swordsmanship with Ahim and Doc watching, they are notified of yet another Zangyack invasion. After Gokai-Ou takes out the Sugoumin with the DekaRanger and MagiRanger Ranger Keys, Captain Marvelous gets a clue from Navi to beware of a "samurai".
- While they think on the clue, the Gokaigers find a kendo class at a park with Joe remembering his days in the Zangyack forces military and his senior Sid Bamick. Then, all of a sudden, a group of Kuroko with white banners appear and the Gokaigers are introduced to a previous ShinkenRed, Shiba Kaoru, who demands the Shinkenger Ranger Keys from them. After Captain Marvelous refuses, she grabs her Shinkenmaru katana and attacks him. He dodges her attacks and is about to pull his GokaiGun on her, but Ahim intervenes and tells him not to shoot Kaoru while Doc tells him she might know the secret to unlocking the Shinkenger's Grand Power. Joe then steps in and issues a challenge to the female samurai.
- Meanwhile, after making a fuss of the latest defeat, Waruzu Giru is paid a visit by his father's bodyguard Deratsueigaa, whose presence makes him confident to the point of personally overseeing the intermediate attack. The duel between Joe and Kaoru is interrupted by a Zangyack invasion as the latter cuts down every Goumins on her path, before a Zangyack army led by Waruzu Giru, Barizorg, and Deratsueigaa beams down to the scene. Waruzu Giru demands everyone to bow before him as the Gokaigers arrive to actively defy him. The Gokaigers eliminate the Goumins and Sugoumins, but are unable to harm Deratsueigaa with the powers of the ZyuRanger and Dynaman.
- Deciding to go after Waruzu Giru, the Gokaigers change into the Gingaman to hold Deratsueigaa while GokaiBlue (Gokai Change into GingaBlue) charges toward the Zangyack forces leader. However, Barizorg forces him to change back into GokaiBlue form and a sword fight ensues before GokaiBlue recognizes Barizorg's fighting stance as that of Sid's. After being pummeled by Barizorg's attack, Joe asks him if he is Sid; in response, Barizorg does not know him. Waruzu Giru then reveals to Joe that the Sid he knew was converted into the cyborg Barizorg for treason as his swordsmanship was too valuable to waste. Joe stands in disbelief as Barizorg approaches him to slash him, but GokaiRed rushes to block the attack - receiving the blow to the back. With the last of his strength before passing out, Captain Marvelous then fires at Barizorg, throwing his sword out of his hand with a stray shot hitting Waruzu Giru's left arm, forcing Barizorg and Deratsueigaa to retreat to get their leader away from harm.
- Due to the heroism displayed by Captain Marvelous, Kaoru offers to have her Kuroko treat his wounds aboard the GokaiGalleon. Feeling the guilt over getting Captain Marvelous injured, Joe climbs up the crow's nest of the ship, thinking about his former comrade and what he has become. As the other Gokaigers gather to sleep around Captain Marvelous, Kaoru's retainer Tanba Toshizo tells her that the Ranger Keys are stored in the treasure chest with Navi sitting on it and tells her now is a good opportunity to take the Shinkenger Keys. She hits him with her fan in response and tells him she wants to continue observing the Gokaigers.
- The next morning, Luka notifies everyone that Joe is missing and he has left them a note, telling everyone that there is a matter he needs to settle alone.
- Voiced by Nakamura Yuuichi (中村悠一)
- He's the leader of the Emperor's elite guards.
- 18th Head of the Shiba clan and former ShinkenRed シンケンレッド
- Hearty Full Throttle Dash!! 豪快全開ダッシュ!!
- Singer, Lyrics, Composition and Arrangement: Tanimoto Takayoshi 谷本貴義 (Project.R)
- The episode title follows Samurai Sentai Shinkenger's format of using kanji only.
- The Gokaiger turn their Mobirates upside down the same way the ZyuRanger did to their DinoBuckler when they transformed.
