"Keisatsu Sentai Patranger!"
―roll call

The Patrangers are one of the teams now considered the 42nd Super Sentai team, and part of the "VS Sentai". At the time they were referred to as the 43rd but that has since changed. They are composed of the three-man Tactical Unit (戦力部隊 Senryoku Butai) assembled by the Global Special Police Organization Japan Branch to track down the Interdimensional Crime Group Gangler and retrieve the stolen treasures of the Lupin Collection. They were, for a long time, rivals to the Lupinrangers, even creating problems in their missions because of their fame of being thieves (Keiichiro being especially troublesome). However, soon after learning about their true motives and eventually their identities, the Patrangers became their reliable allies.

Team History

Officers of the Global Special Police Organization Japan Branch, Keiichiro Asaka, Sakuya Hikawa and Tsukasa Myoujin comprised a three-man tactical unit established to counter the Interdimensional Crime Group Gangler. On a night shift, the three officers were sent to shut down the illegal casino of Gangler Monster Ruretta Gerou, only to be beaten by the notorious phantom thieves, the Lupinrangers. On the following day, the Tactical Unit were alerted by accountant robot Jim Carter to a Gangler incursion at the Kurehama Pier, which coincided with their receiving of the VS Changers, devices provided to counter the Gangler, by Commander Hilltop. Confronting the Gangler whom they found engaged in a fight with the Lupinrangers, the three GSPO officers, intending to arrest all parties, used the VS Changers to transform into the Patrangers for the first time.

In the ensuing battle, Nargo took his leave as the two Sentai fought, with the Lupinrangers eventually taking off in their enlarged Dial Fighters. Though the Patrangers took pursuit in the Trigger Machines, the police were ultimately eluded by the Lupinrangers. Once Nargo returned to wreak havoc, the Patrangers rushed to intercept him, again coming second to the Lupinrangers, however, once the thieves reclaimed Nargo's piece of the Lupin Collection, Kairi was content to leave him to the Patrangers who, provided with the sentient Lupin Collection piece GoodStriker, combined into Patren Ugou for the first time to perform their finisher and destroy him. Nargo was revived and enlarged immediately after, at which point the Lupinrangers rejoined the fray to engage him in their Fighters, with GoodStriker choosing to leave the Patrangers and provide his power to form the Kaitou Gattai LupinKaiser and destroy Gangler Monster once and for all. Following this, the Tactical Unit officers entered the Bistrot Jurer, where the thieves had hidden with GoodStriker. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Number 2: International Police, Chase After Them

Oblivious to the thieves' identities, the officers had intended to eat at the Bistro but were called away before they could order. Confronting Namero Bacho, the Patrangers were again met with the Lupinrangers, with the situation being further complicated when Patren 2gou lost his VS Changer to Lupin Blue before being immobilized by Namero's adhesive while his Changer was retrieved by 3gou, allowing the Gangler to get away. While Keiichiro scolded Sakuya for incompetence, Hilltop suggested that he make up for it as an anonymous eyewitness pointed the GSPO to Studio Bacho. Unbeknownst to the Patrangers, they had been used as bait by the Lupinrangers, who moved to acquire the Qui a fait qui as the police officers were all incapacitated upon entering the studio. However, Sakuya proved his worth by freeing himself and his team who, catching up with the Gangler, were met by GoodStriker, who used his power to combine their Trigger Machines into the Keisatsu Gattai PatKaiser for the first time, allowing them to destroy the enlarged Namero, at which point they were ejected as GoodStriker took his leave. Their work for the day done, the GSPO officers resumed their dinner date at the Bistrot Jurer. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Number 3: Take Them Back No Matter What

Notes

  • The Patrangers are the first Super Sentai team that does not have a Blue Ranger.
  • Patranger's name is a play on the English words "patrol" and "Ranger".
  • The Patrangers have a sound or letters in their given names that spell out a word when lined up. In this case, it is "keisatsu", the Japanese word for "police".
    • Keiichiro Asaka
    • Sakuya Hikawa (also Satoru Shinonome)
    • Tsukasa Myoujin
  • The insignia for the Patrangers is an S, while the Lupinrangers' insignia is a V. This references the "VS" in the show's title.
  • The Patrangers' surnames, have Kanji related to morning, daybreak or light. This is to reflect the nature of police and justice in general. 
    • Asaka - 朝加, 朝 means morning.
    • Hikawa - 陽川, 陽 means sun.
    • Myoujin - 明神, 明 means bright or light.
    • Shinonome - 東雲 means dawn.
    • While Takao (高尾) is not related, it can be written as 孝朗 (たかお takao), 朗 meaning bright.
  • The Patrangers are the first Rangers to be able to merge into one multicolored Ranger.
  • Originally, despite appearing in the 42nd Super Sentai Season, the Patrangers were counted as the 43rd Sentai. [11]
    • However, post series material always has the Patrangers share a numerical spot with the Lupinrangers. This can most easily be seen in material such as their respective Sentai Gears. Furthermore, Ryusoulger is officially designated as the 43rd Sentai.
  • Despite not debuting until after the Lupinrangers first appeared, the Patrangers were the first of the 2 teams to be announced towards the end of Kyuranger.
