|This article is about a/an set of villainous footsoldiers in GoGo Sentai Boukenger.|
Dragonoid Soldier Jaryuu (竜人兵ジャリュウ, Ryūjinhei Jaryū, 2-49): The dragon-like warriors created by King Ryuuwon using his own blood and machinery. They wield swords and can summon hundreds of poisonous red lizards from their bodies. They are fewer in number when compared to the Karths, but more powerful. They are also capable of speech. Three piloted Dold before its destruction and all perished along with Dold.
In Task 21, with Uchide's Mallet, Ryuuwon made three of them grow to giant size. When the Boukengers formed Ultimate DaiBouken, he made them grow again, making them even twice the size of DaiBouken. However, Eiji Takaoka reclaimed the Mallet for himself, and made Ultimate DaiBouken grow in size to even the odds. Ultimate DaiBouken's Ultimate Blaster finished two of the Jaryuu, and SirenBuilder, still normal size, jumped down the third's throat and finished it off from the inside.
In Task 25, three Jaryuu made suggestions to Ryuuwon for their kind's benefits after eating the Fruit of Knowledge. In the end, all but one of the Jaryuu were killed off in the ritual to create the last Wicked Dragon, or so it seemed. At the end of the final episode, two Jaryuu are seen battling Dark Shadow and the Boukengers for the Ru-Yi-Bang Precious. Though their leader is gone, they are intent on carrying out his wishes.
Years later, a single Jaryuu managed to resurrect Ryuuwon with the Precious, the Heart of Hades. This revival was short-lived however, as Ryuuwon was soon destroyed by the Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.
