|This article is about a/an changer in Choujin Sentai Jetman.|
Cross Changer (クロスチェンジャー Kurosu Chenjā): The transformation bracelet, worn on the right wrist. They transform by shouting "Cross Changer!" and pressing a bird shaped button called Emblem Formation (エンブレムフォーメーション Enburemu Fomeshon) on the bracelet. In the Philippine Dub instead of saying Cross Changer, they are paraphrasing the transformation as Fivemen and their code-names from their sentai forms in Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman as Jetmen and their code-names from their sentai forms.
Some episodes (for example: the first episode, as well when Gai transformed in the Jetman Tribute Episode ) show the transformation sequence as a screen blinking between projection of the Jetman (or a silhouette of the Jetman Suit) and a silhouette in the respective color, then the screen stops at the silhouette creating an energy grid on the Jetman's body. The Jetman then is surrounded by Birdonic Waves (represented as rings of light), materializing the suit, other times, the transformation effect is skipped by a stock footage of a close-up of Ryu Tendo's Cross Changer glowing (as shown below).
The Cross Changer harmonizes with Birdonic Waves allowing for the transformation; after the Jetman appear to lose their Birdonic Waves to Meteor BEM, the Neo-Jetman discover that using the Cross Changer in conjunction with their Birdonic Generators powering their suits, it would re-empower the Birdonic Waves of the original Jetman and make them immune to the Bio-Dimension Beast's power.
At the climax of the Legend War, the Cross Changer were made redundant when the Jetmen sacrificed their powers with the rest of the first 34 Super Sentai to destroy the invasion force of the Space Empire Zangyack. Resurfacing as Ranger Keys, the Jetman powers would be used by the Gokaigers to assume their forms via the Gokai Change. Ultimately, the Gokaigers returned their borrowed powers to their rightful owners after overthrowing Zangyack.

- A modified version of the Cross Changer was used as a prop for the Thermal Monitor from the 1992 film Universal Soldier starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.
