Important things that happened[edit]

  • ChouJyu Sentai Liveman tribute episode.
  • This episode focused on Joe Gibken, and the truth behind the remodel of Sid Bamick.
  • When the next fortune from Navi refers to a "skateboarding lion", Gai realizes it must mean Yellow Lion. However, as Gai has no idea where he is, the rest of the Gokai Galleon crew decide to go out and find him.
  • As the others have no luck, Joe and Ahim meet Oohara Jou as he and Joe save an infant. Soon after, the two pirates and Jou find a Zangyack scientist named Zaien who attempts to kidnap a boxer. Transforming in front of him, the two Gokaigers battle the Goumin while Jou gets the boxer to safety before fighting the Goumin. Using the Denjiman Ranger Keys, the Gokaigers drive Zaien off.
  • The two then find a scanner which Jou learns that it is a technical specification on turning people into beings like Barizorg. After learning the contents of the file, Joe asks Jou to find a way to reverse the process. Accepting to help him, Jou takes Joe to his laboratory to find the means, only to find that the process can not be undone.
  • With this knowledge, Joe laments that he cannot save his friend, as Jou eases his pain by telling of his own tribulations of fighting his own friends and how he intends not to let history repeat itself, and that even if he can only rescue his soul, he would be able to save him. As Joe leaves with renewed conviction, he realizes that Jou is the Yellow Lion.
  • Meanwhile, after learning Zaien's scheme to convert physically fit humans into beings like Barizorg, the Gokaigers track Zaien down and free his captives before they are joined by Joe.
  • Vowing not to allow others to suffer Sid's fate, Joe transforms into GokaiBlue. As GokaiSilver assumes Gold Mode to take out the Sugoumin, the Gokaigers assume the forms of the Liveman to fight Zaien. With Zaien weakened, GokaiBlue personally finishes the scientist off with Sid's sword technique attack.
  • Enlarged by a content Insaan, Zaien and the Sugoumin battle Gokai-Ou and GouJyuRex. Using the Grand Power of the Liveman, Gokai-Ou summons Super Live Robo who takes out the Sugoumin so Zaien can be destroyed.
  • Later, Joe vows to defeat Barizorg as he believes it is the only way to save at least Sid's soul.
