- "It has been 500 years since I united the Ganglers. Extortion, stealing, and killing...It's been a fun life, but I've grown weary of it. Therefore... I want to choose a successor. There is only one requirement. The one who seizes the human world is the next boss. I, Dogranio Yaboon, will give everything I have amassed to the strongest among you!"
- ―Dogranio announcing his retirement and intent of finding a successor[src]
- "Let me out! Or just kill me! If I have to live powerless in this decrepit body... I'd rather die!"
- ―Final words as he spends his life incarcerated.[src]
Dogranio Yaboon (ドグラニオ・ヤーブン Doguranio Yābun), alternatively spelt Dogranio Yarbun, is a former crime lord who was the leader of Interdimensional Crime Group Gangler. He is 1000 years old and held his title as the leader of the group for over 500 years. He was seeking his successor and was ready for his retirement until Zamigo Delma caused him to create chaos . He is also responsible for killing Arsène Lupin.
As of the final episode, instead of being the final antagonist killed in most Sentai seasons, he is currently in custody, in what looks to be his own chains, by the Global Special Police Organization Japan Branch. To make sure he doesn't break out, his cell was provided with machine gun turrets.
With his followers, Dogranio Yaboon had personally seized the Lupin Collection, an assembly of immensely powerful items collected by the legendary thief Arsène Lupin, while killing the said thief in the process, leaving the wreckage behind for a horrified Noel.
Arriving in his mansion alongside his bodyguard Destra Majjo, he was wished a happy 999th birthday by his syndicate's members and medic Goche Ru Medou. Announcing his looking forward to retirement, he challenged his syndicate members to whoever conquered Earth first, shall become the new leader.
In a bid to succeed Dogranio, artist Namero Bacho used his sculpting power to transform a building into a statue of the Gangler boss. Dogranio abided this blatant act, explaining to Destra that the methods did not matter, only the result. Ultimately, however, the statue was destroyed having been caught in the crossfire as Namero was defeated by PatKaiser, leaving only the feet standing.
After the Gangler Rubroom Jaws had kidnapped several humans, Goche approached Dogranio to request that he purchase some for her experiments. He agreed, despite Destra's objections, saying that trades are a part of running a gang.
When Destra returned to the Back World, Dogranio questioned him on what he was doing. After Destra explained and informed him of his informant, Dogranio went and asked if it was Zamigo. After Destra confirmed it, Dogranio mused on how interesting it would be to make Zamigo his next successor.
Eventually, Dogranio finds Raimon and his gang having meals at his table, with Raimon sitting on Dogranio's chair. Destra was infuriated with Raimon's discourtness and forced him off the chair. Raimon smugly claimed the seat will be him sooner or later and question if Dogranio has objection against the former being the new successor. Instead of rejecting Raimon, Dogranio amusingly look forward to Raimon's action.
Upon witnessing Raimon's lackeys defeat and Raimon himself in the hands of both Sentai teams, Dogranio began to have doubts about retiring and decides to ponder.
As the leader of the Gangler, Dogranio Yaboon enjoyed the crimes committed by his group, however, after 500 years as boss, he has started to feel bored with it. He is slightly laid back and easy-going but doesn't hesitate to dispose of any henchman disappointing him. Despite being the boss of a crime syndicate, Dogranio has shown that he genuinely cares for those close to him. After Destra Majjo's death, Dogranio is seen mourning him silently in sadness alone, pouring a glass of wine for him, remarking that he was "one hell of a right-hand man". Despite that he has trusted Goche for a long time, Dogranio later betrays her when he is using his Golden Safe to get all the Lupin Collection pieces she used from her and the Experimental Monster.
Following a confession from Zamigo, he completely drops his usual boss persona, revealing he was disgusted by the younger thoughts on him, deciding to show the young upstarts that despite his age, he will rampage and cause as much chaos it take for him to be satisfied, showing the true tyrannical villain within.
- Gangladius (ギャングラディウス Gyanguradiusu): Dogranio's reverse-grip blade concealed as a walking stick, which he can use both forms for melee combat.
- Gauntlet Claw: Using an unnamed Lupin Collection piece, Dogranio manifested a golden gauntlet claw on his left arm.
- Physical Protect Chains (フィジカル・プロテクト・チェーン Fijikaru Purotekuto Chēn): The chains that cover Dogranio's body which he can manipulate in defensive and offensive ways. Dogranio stated that nothing can cut or destroy his chains, not even himself.
- Chain Shield: He can use the chains to form a shielding sphere around himself, allowing him to survive even a supercharged blast from Super Patren 1gou.
- Chain Tentacles: He can use the chains as tentacles to attack the enemies.
Powers and Abilities
Unlike the other Ganglers, his safe, dubbed “Status Gold: Physical Protection” by Noel, is chained and said to contain an infinite space that allows him to hold multiple collection pieces and utilize their powers simultaneously. The chains are extremely durable and couldn't be broken even by Yaboon himself,and only disappear when he allows the safe to open.
- Longevity: As said on the first episode, he is 999 years old, which confirms his high level of longevity.
- Strength: He is very powerful, easily defeating Sakuya and Tsukasa from a long distance.
- Blade Projection: By simply touching his shoulder-strap with his cane, he can release a circular blade at an unseeable speed from a considerable distance that not only knocks out multiple target at once, but also causes a huge explosion.
- Close Combat Skills: Despite what most would think from someone as old as him, Dogranio has proven himself to be highly capaple of close quarters combat, easily able to take out Victory LupinKaiser, one of the strongest mecha in the VS Sentai's arsenal. At normal size, his power was enough to take out even Patren Ugou, who was practically unmatched against prior Ganglers.
- Portal Creation: Like his generals, Dogranio can open a portal between his dimension and Earth.
- Dark Energy Blast: Dogranio can generate dark energy and fire it from the grip of his Gangladius.
- Lupin Collection:
- Enlarging: With the help of the Get big/Gros caliber syringe, Dogranio is able to enlarge himself.
- Lupin Collection Removal: Due to an unknown treasure equipped in his safe, Dogranio Yaboon can unlock the safes on Gangler Monsters and steal their Lupin Collection pieces.
- Electrokinesis: Due to an unknown treasure equipped within his safe, Dogranio Yaboon can shoot electricity from his cane or create electric orbs.
- Energy Field: Due to an unknown treasure equipped within his safe, Dogranio Yaboon is able to project an energy field to reflect the opponent's attacks.
- Geokinesis: Due to an unknown treasure equipped within his safe, Dogranio Yaboon can manipulate rocks.
- Sculpting: Due to an unknown treasure equipped within his safe, Dogranio Yaboon can shape rocks into spikes.
- Fire Generation: Due to an unknown treasure equipped within his safe, Dogranio Yaboon is able to generate fire.
- Ultimate Energy Blast: Dogranio Yaboon's ultimate attack and the most powerful attack used in Lupinranger Vs Patrangers. Dogranio would pose feet apart and charge up one of his hands with dark purple energy and fire a massive energy beam strong enough to rip open the street and counter Super Patren 1gou's finisher.
- Mirrors: Due to an unknown treasure equipped within his safe, Dogranio Yaboon can create mirrors and reflect his opponent's attack between them repeatedly.
- Energy Bomb: By combining the powers of multiple Lupin Collection pieces in his safe, Dogranio Yaboon can create a bomb that is able to obliterate a part of the city.
- Shadow Binding: Due to an unknown treasure equipped within his safe, Dogranio can manipulate his shadow to trap his opponents in shadow tendrils.
- Water Generation: Due to an unknown treasure equipped within his safe, Dogranio can generate water and launch it at his opponents.
- Safe Infiltration: He cannot control what happens inside his safe, and was helpless when the Lupinrangers stole his Lupin Collection pieces. In addition, Jackpot Striker was also capable of controlling even him.
- Old Age: It was pointed out by Noel, since he is 1000 years old, he was not as powerful as he used to be and he had to rely on the Collection to be an actual threat to the human world. Due to that, after the collection pieces were taken from him, the Patrangers had no trouble neutralizing him on their final battle.
- Height: 181cm (45.3m giant)
- Weight: 229kg (573.0t giant)
- Criminal Record: Murder of Arsène Lupin, theft of the Lupin Collection, invasion of the Human World, conspiracy to murder of police officer, mass destruction of properties, terrorism, resisting arrest, unlawful restraint of the Lupinrangers
- Lupin Collection: Various
- Gangler Safe Location: Chest
- Password Number: Not Shown
- Safe Designation: Status Gold (Physical Protection)
- Dogranio's motifs are one of Tyrannosaurus, hamono knife, and a chain.
- His design also bears resemblance to that of a pirate.
- He is the first Super Sentai main villain who is ready for retirement and is looking for a successor to take his place as leader.
- He has the most collection pieces of any Gangler.
- He is the first Sentai villain boss to be arrested after being defeated at the end of the series.
- Interestingly, said arrest is ironic since he wanted to retire from leading the Gangler. By imprisoning him for good, this made him no longer Their leader, and thus by proxy, he actually got what he wanted in the worst way imaginable; to be trapped by his own chains, surrounded by millions of turrets, to make sure he never escapes.
- Just like how Zamigo never faced any of the Patrangers in battle, Dogranio could be said the same thing of how he never actually fought any of the Lupinrangers himself, as he only just fought their mecha.
- However, he does fight Lupin X for a moment in the final episode.
- Interestingly, despite still being alive, he didn't return for the Ryusoulger VS Lupinranger VS Patranger movie. Usually, when a main villain still lives by the finale, they would return in the crossover movie so the Rangers can tie up loose ends, possibly due to being imprisoned by the end of his own series.
