|This article is about a/an army of grunts in Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger.|
The Anaroids (アーナロイド Ānaroido) are the cheapest, weakest, and most numerous of the robot foot soldiers sold to Alienizers by Agent Abrella, Anaroids are a painfully frequent nuisance for the Dekarangers.
Anaroids lack the capacity to speak in any sentient language, but can understand vocal commands easily enough. Most Anaroids are of the two-handed variety and wield short swords for melee combat, although a variant with a gun mounted on one arm has also been seen. Their only strength in combat has proven to be their vast numbers.
Several Anaroids were part of an army of past enemy grunts that were fought by the Gokaigers in Los Dark's ghost dimension which housed the 1500 spirits of the villains defeated by the Super Sentai. After losing some of their number in an initial skirmish, the remaining members from each grunt group merged to form the Combined Combatant. Though the stronger opponent, the Combined Combatant proved to be unstable due to internal conflicting among the grunts composing him over who got to finish the pirates off. Taking advantage, the Gokaigers used the Battle Fever J Ranger Keys to destroy the Combined Combatant with the Penta Force cannon.
Later on, dozens of Anaroids were part of a Mechanoid army led by Agent Abrella, confronting the five Gokaigers. Gokai Red left to take on Los Dark as his crew dealt with Abrella's army as the Dekarangers.
