The True Samurai Combination (真侍合体 Shin Samurai Gattai) is the twenty-fourth episode of Samurai Sentai Shinkenger.
With the Shinkenger down, Takeru abducted by Juzo and Gozunagumo strengthened by Doukoku's punishment, all hope lies in Genta for completing the Inroumaru and giving the team a new trump card.
Entrusted with the Inromaru after Takeru gave it to Jokan prior to Shitari's attack, Genta has to complete the Inromaru while the vassals have their wounds tended to. On the Rokumon Junk, Shitari gains Doukoku's forgiveness as he gives Dayu the task of destroying Juzo while Gozunagumo loses his mind from being consumed by Doukoku's power. Meanwhile, Juzo forcefully cures Takeru of Shitari's poison, revealing his reasons were so he can fight Takeru at his full strength. From there, Juzo reveals how he became a Gedounin, and how he and Takeru are very much alike: acting outside of the norms of bushido to further their personal goals. The next day, Genta struggles in creating the Inromaru, having been given the Origami Disks of the other vassals, who head out to fight Gozunagumo to give Genta more time. It is just enough to allow him to complete it, getting Takeru and he bringing him to the fight with the Ayakashi, giving his friend the Inromaru. Takeru transforms and uses the Inromaru to transform into Super Shinken Red, slaying all of the Nanashi Company and Gozunagumo. When Gozunagumo resurrects with Ōnanashi, the Shinkengers use the Inromaru and the new True Samurai Gattai Disk to combine all of their personal Origami into Daikai-Shinkenoh to take out the Ōnanashi. When Gozunagumo uses two Ōnosakamata to blast them, the Shinkengers counter with Daikai-Shinkenoh using the IkaTenku Buster to destroy the Ayakashi. Takeru later returns to Tengen Temple to visit the tombstone of the Fuwa clan, thinking of Juzo's words about himself.
