This article is about a/an villain in Mashin Sentai Kiramager.

Demonic General of Betrayal Galza (裏切りの鬼将軍ガルザ Uragiri no Oni-Shōgun Garuza) is one of the generals of the Dark Empire Yodonheim and the main antagonist of Mashin Sentai Kiramager. He is the younger brother of King Oradin, the brother-in-law of Queen Mabayuine, the biological uncle of Princess Mabushina, and the adoptive uncle of Takamichi Crystalia. He is also the reason that Yodonheim invaded Crystalia.

History

Origins

Galza before he betrayed the Kingdom of Crystalia

Originally, Galza was a prince of the Crystalian royal family and a hero of the kingdom. Despite being the second-born, his Kiramental was stronger than Oradin's, which led him to believe he was the worthier candidate for the throne. Episode 4: Princess of the Lost World

When Oradin became king, Galza's resulting jealousy and resentment towards his brother drove him to betray Crystalia. Alongside Carantula, Galza led the invasion of the planet, during which he killed Oradin and had his lifeless body carried away by Bechats. Later, he joined the Dark Empire Yodonheim as he puts on his new helmet and armor and decides to steal the hopes and light from the people of Earth. Mashin Sentai Kiramager: Episode ZERO

Personality

Compared to the benevolent presence held by his brother, Galza's take is more malevolent and self-serving, though his knowledge of Crystalia often helped proceed Yodonheim's plans against the Kiramagers. He is also slightly posh, drawing amusement from Carantula's antics, and serves as a calmer influence compared to his wildness. He is also shown to be quite manipulative, fierce, aggressive, and cruel, as he played on Mabushina's feelings for her father and exploited Takamichi’s ego. Possibly due to his anger and jealousy of Oradin, Galza possess a childish sense of arrogance, claiming himself superior to the Crystalian ruler in every way. As Juru is essentially Oradin in a human body, Galza heavily despises him. After the first formation of King Express, Galza's hatred for Juru only deepened. He also possesses a hatred of all those he sees as weaklings, claiming them to be his enemies. Because of this, he will violently and brutally kill anyone he considers weak, including Jamenshi.

Family

  • King Oradin - Older brother (deceased)
  • Queen Mabayuine - Sister-in-law (deceased)
  • Takamichi Crystalia - Adopted nephew
  • Princess Mabushina - Biological niece

Powers and abilities

  • Imagination Manifestation: Like Juru Atsuta and King Oradin, Galza possesses a strong imagination, which allowed him to transform the Black Kiramai Stone into Mashin Jouki.
  • Armor Manifestation: Galza can manifest his armor from his body and place it on himself with his mind.
  • Dark Fire Projection: Galza is able to shoot out a stream of dark fire from his hand, as seen in his battle with Juru.
  • Jamental (ジャメンタル Jamentaru): Uncommon among Crystalians, Galza possesses Jamental, the dark equivalent of Kiramental, which utilizes his anger and rage to increase his power.
    • Dark Energy Generation: Through his Jamental, Galza can generate dark energy to empower himself.
      • Monster Reviving/Enlarging: Galza revived and enlarged the Jaaku Monstone using his Jamental powers.
  • Shockwave Kick: He was able to generate a violet shockwave with his kick in his battle with Takamichi.
  • Corruption: Galza can corrupt an opponent's heart, and with the help of a Monstone, he can turn them into unwilling puppets of evil. The victims' minds are still intact, but they have no control over their actions.
  • Shadow Absorption: Galza is shown to have the ability to absorb shadow and dark energy.
  • Teleportation: Galza can teleport at will by vanishing in a burst of dark energy. 

Arsenal

  • Sword: Galza wields a hook-bladed sword in combat.
    • Spark Wave Generation: Galza can draw the tip of his sword along the ground in a straight line to generate a large wave of sparks. It was first used against Takamichi.
    • Energy Empowerment: Galza can charge up the blade of his sword with violet and magenta energies to slash at full force.
    • Dark Energy Slash: Galza's strongest attack where he charges an immense amount of dark energy into his sword, making it appear much larger than it really is and then unleash a massive energy slash that would cleave down the center of his enemy, immediately killing them. This killed his brother and the Freezer Jamen.
  • Darkness Megabeast Mecha Smog Jouki: Galza's personal Mecha born from a Dark Kiramai Stone. It can transform into a steam locomotive-based Mashin, as well as a dinosaur.
  • Guitar: Galza wielded a twisted-looking guitar to transmit sound waves through Speaker Jamen. Funnily enough, Galza strongly played it the wrong way, which resulted in a rampant of loud noises.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Notes

  • The name Galza (Garuza in Japanese) comes from the Japanese pronunciation of Útgarða-Loki ("Utogaruza-Loki" in Japanese), also known as Skrýmir, who was the ruler of the castle Útgarð, in Jötunheimr ("Jotunheim" in English) in Norse mythology.
  • Galza is one of the many Super Sentai villains who were portrayed by someone who had portrayed a Sentai hero before, similar to Sakura (Kakuranger), Gachireus, Kukuruga, Akyanba, Tecchu, and Resentful Knight Endolf.
    • Interestingly, Endolf and Galza had the same suit actor.
    • Coincidentally, both Galza and Akyanba turned a Silver Ranger evil.
      • Additionally, both of the actors who played these characters also portrayed two of the Go-Busters.
  • Galza is similar to Sorcery Priest Meemy from Mahou Sentai Magiranger: both previously worked alongside the heroes' allies, but eventually betrayed them and took a new guise when they became a member of the villain group.
  • Galza is also similar to Apostle of Darkness Geildon and Apostle of Destruction Jeanne from Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger (which has the same head writer as Kiramager, Naruhisa Arakawa). Both previously worked alongside their allies too (in their case, family, as they were both Asuka/Abare Black's older brother-in-law and wife respectively), before turning to the dark side and donning a pitch-black armored form wielding a sword (though Geildon mainly fights with an axe, while Jeanne wields the sword as herself).
    • The difference between the two is that Jeanne and Geildon were both manipulated into believing that Asuka had betray them, while Garza actually chooses to work with the villains out of jealousy to his older brother.
    • Also, Garza's Yodonheim armor appears to be a creation of Yodonheim, while the Armor of Darkness previously belonged to the Ryuujin, and was locked away because of its destructive powers.
    • Ironically, while Garza managed to have a Mashin (and a dinosaur, too) on his side, Jeanne never succeeded in having a Bakuryuu on her side (Dimenokodon briefly served her, but he was ultimately turned back to the heroes' side).
    • Curiously, in his first fight with Takamichi, he called his own armor his armor of darkness (暗黒の鎧 ankoku no yoroi), which is the name of the suit of armor worn by Jeanne.
  • To tie in Galza's relationship with Oradin and Mabushina, his skin is black, he has red eyes, and he wears grey clothes instead of white. He does, however, wear white gloves, and his head features gold highlights similar to those of his niece and brother.
  • He is similar to Scar from The Lion King, having betrayed his own family out of jealousy of his brother being chosen for the throne over him (and also personally killing said brother).
