The Great Bull King (猛牛大王 Mōgyūdaiō) is the thirty-third episode of Samurai Sentai Shinkenger. It is the conclusion of the debut of two parts of Ushi Origami, with the first appearance of MougyuDai-Oh, Ushi Origami's mecha mode.


With the Ushi Origami running amuck and Hiro trapped inside, the Shinkenger must work with his grandfather to figure a way to stop the rampage and prevent Happouzu from taking control of it for Akumaro.


As the Ushi Origami continues its rampage, Dayu prepares to throw the broken blade of Juzo's Uramasa into the sea as respect for the fallen swordsman when Akumaro reveals that Juzo is still alive and he wishes the former samurai to work for him. He promises to repair her shamisen and Juzo's Uramasa in return. Later that night, Dayu finds Juzo to relay Akumaro's message to him.

Meanwhile, after having no luck in finding the Ushi Orgami, Kotoha suggests to Takeru and the others to send the Origami to find Hiro who is still inside the Ushi Origami. By daybreak, the Origami return to Shinkengers as Toji gives Takeru a special Secret Disk to destroy the Ushi Origami. Sending the others ahead of him, Takeru learns that the old man sees the Ushi Origami to be responsible for the death of Hiro's parents. As he expresses his guilt that it is partly his fault that they died and that Hiro is in trouble, Takeru tells him otherwise and returns the Secret Disk to Toji. On their way to find Hiro, the Shinkengers are ambushed by Happouzu and several Nanashi. Takeru joins the battle and when both Dayu and Juzo arrive to hold the Shinkengers back, Takeru goes forward to find Happouzu ready to kill Hiro who tries to tame the Ushi Origami.

However, the Origami begins its rampage again as Toji arrives to reveal that he too wished to control the Ushi Origami. Together, Hiro and Toji absorb the excess Mojikara that drives the Ushi Origami wild before it destroys a nearby city. Takeru as Super Shinken Red also destroys Happouzu, who gains the intent to destroy the Ushi Origami now that it cannot be under his control in his second life. Given the reigns of the Ushi Origami, Takeru turns the Ushi Origami into MouGyuDaiOh, who slays the Ayakashi as Juzo and Dayu take their leave. Parting ways with the Sakakibara clan, Takeru and his vassals make their way home with a new Origami in their arsenal.
