Sun Vulcan come to cheer on the Turborangers.

Sun Vulcan joined up with Battle Fever, Denzimen, Goggle V, Dynamen, Biomen, Changemen, Flashmen, Maskmen, and the Livemen, to stand behind the newest Sentai, the Turborangers, as they faced off against the Hundred Boma Tribes. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Counting on You! Turboranger


Years later, the Space Empire Zangyack invaded Earth. This threat was so great that all of the first 34 Super Sentai, including Sun Vulcan, were needed to oppose them. The 34 Sentai put up a valiant fight against the ground forces, but when the Zangyack fleet itself attacked them, Akarenger told everyone to combine their powers and save the Earth. This destroyed the Zangyack fleet and resulted in the loss of their powers, which resurfaced as Ranger Keys, that were dispersed throughout the universe.

The keys were collected by AkaRed, and later utilized by the 35th Super Sentai, the Gokaigers, a group of five people from different planets who came to Earth in search of the Greatest Treasure in the Universe. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 1: The Space Pirates Appear The greater power of Sun Vulcan was initially taken by Basco ta Jolokia, but was granted to the Gokaigers by Takayuki after Basco's death. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 49: The Greatest Treasure in the Universe After the Gokaigers finally defeated Zangyack, they returned the Ranger Keys before they left Earth to find the second Greatest Treasure in the Universe. Takayuki saluted the Gokaigers as he received his Ranger Key. The rest of his team presumably got their powers as well. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates

Super Hero Taisen

Sun Vulcan, alongside Battle Fever, J.A.K.Q., and the Denzimen, emerge through a dimensional wall.

Sun Vulcan, among the majority of the Super Sentai heroes, were caught up in the "Super Hero Taisen" incident. They were presumably sent to the dimensional riftIcon-crosswiki.png, under the pretense of being defeated, by Kamen Rider Decade while he was apparently hunting the Sentai teams. When his and Captain Marvelous' ruse was revealed, Sun Vulcan appeared with the other Super Sentai through the dimensional wallIcon-crosswiki.png, they then fought alongside all the other Sentai teams and Kamen RidersIcon-crosswiki.png against the alliance of Dai-ShockerIcon-crosswiki.png and Dai-Zangyack.

The Space Pirates Return

The Gokaigers made use of the Ranger Keys in their fight with the Zyuohgers and Bangray.

Evidently, Sun Vulcan loaned their Ranger Keys - at the request of Gai Ikari - to the Gokaigers whom had temporarily returned to Earth to find and bestow the Great King's Credential to the Zyuohgers. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 28: The Space Pirates Return Their powers were returned when the Gokaigers left for space once more having achieved their quest.

Ranger Keys

"Sun Vulcan!"
Mobilates' Gokai Change announcement[src]

The Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan Ranger Keys (太陽戦隊サンバルカンレンジャーキー Taiyō Sentai San Barukan Renjā Kī) are what became of the Sun Vulcan team's powers after they along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.

Any of these keys allow a Gokaiger to assume the form of any of the Sun Vulcans. The Greater Power of this Sentai Group was stolen by Basco, but was later retrieved when Basco was defeated after he infused the Greater Power into the Sun Vulcan Keys.
