"Damaras... Warz Gill will be made commander of the second Earth invasion armada. Although we may have been repelled once, the so-called “Super Sentai” that acted as Earth’s defenders are gone.  Furthermore, Damaras... I place you in charge of Warz Gill's welfare. Conquering the Earth should be a simple matter, with you serving him. Am I wrong?"
―Ackdos Gill’s first (chronological) words to Damaras via a flashback before the invasion of Earth[src]

"Dairandoh. Zatsurig. Detain Damaras."
―Ackdos Gill arriving on the Gigant Horse[src]

"What?! They let them on board? Those pesky little rats. I’m impressed you’ve made it this far. However, this bridge will soon become a tomb."
―Ackdos Gill when confronted by Captain Marvelous and Gai on board the Gigant Horse.[src]

"What?! What are you doing!?  Curse you... You’ll pay!"
―Ackdos Gill whilst and after Captain Marvelous firing the Gigant Horse’s cannons at the Zangyack fleet.[src]

"Y-you don’t dare--!"
―Ackdos Gill reacting to the Gokai Saber and Gokai Spear Final Waves and his final words before his presumed death.[src]

"Who was it you were trying to bury? I’d say the same of you worms. It’s time for you to accept your fate. The fate that involves being eradicated by my hands!"
―Ackdos having survived and initiating the series’ final battle.[src]

"This can’t be... I’m the Emperor of the entire universe... I’m Ackdos Gill!"
―Ackdos Gill after Gai Ikari caused him a major wound on his gut.[src]

"Damn you, space pirates!"
―Ackdos Gill’s final words before his death.[src]

Emperor Ackdos Gill (皇帝アクドス・ギル Kōtei Akudosu Giru) was the Emperor of the Zangyack Empire, the father of Warz Gill, and uncle of Bacchus Gill. He was the main antagonist of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger. Despite his position as emperor, he carried the AkdoSword (アクドソード Akudosōdo) with him for battle and shot powerful blasts from his shoulders, and send out energy slashes from his sword. He also had his own elite monsters called the Imperial Guard which were his personal and loyal servants.



He sends his son to lead the second invasion force when the first was destroyed by the Super Sentai teams. However, feeling that his son is unable to control Earth on his own, Ackdos sends Damaras with him to oversee his son's actions and to keep him safe.

Ackdos would later sends his elite guardsman Deratsueigar to assist his son after numerous failures to seize the planet. After Warz was shot in the hand by Captain Marvelous, he exclaimed, "Not even my father ever hit me!" Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 11: The Serious Rebellion While Deratsueigar put up a better fight than the Action Commanders that came before him, even he fell to the Gokaigers, much more with the help of Kaoru Shiba and the Shinkenger's Greater Power.

Eventually, Ackdos sends his two Dogormin to deliver the Great Warz for the Gigant Horse crew to use.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 37: The Strongest Fighting Machine Unfortunately, that plan failed as well.

Ackdos Gill arrives on the Gigant Horse

After the death of Warz Gill, he arrives on the Gigant Horse himself followed by his elite guard who immediately throws Damaras in prison for failing to prevent his son's death. He then decides to invade Earth as a memorial for his late son.

One of Ackdos' elite guards, Zatsurig, offers to personally attack the Gokaigers which Ackdos allows and also sends some of his own forces with him. He is later seen watching Zatsurig fail, even after being enlarged.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 41: Something I Don't Want to Lose

After Zatsurig was destroyed by the Gokaigers, Ackdos gave Damaras a chance to redeem himself by taking down the Gokaigers. Damaras, with the help of Basco ta Jolokia, succeeded in capturing Captain Marvelous while the other Gokaigers bar Don were seemingly killed. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 42: The Strongest Man in the Universe Ackdos decided that Marvelous would have a public execution on Earth. However, this event was stopped by Don, Navi, the returned Gokaigers, and Basco's betrayal of Damaras. After the Gokaigers regrouped, Damaras met his end at their hands. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 43: To the Legendary Hero

Realizing that defeating the Gokaigers and conquering Earth would require more force, Ackdos sent out a call throughout his entire empire, recruiting the bulk of the Zangyack's military might into a humongous fleet even greater than the first invasion of Earth.

Once his forces are gathered, using Insarn to weaken the Gokaigers, Ackdos proceeds to send the entire fleet down to Earth with the intent of killing the pirates and executing planetary genocide. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 49: The Greatest Treasure in the Universe The sheer amount of battleships was the ultimate outcome of the fight with the Gokaigers and their mecha, with the Space Pirates and the manifestations of the Super Sentai's Greater Powers shot down in flames. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 50: The Day of Battle When Marvelous and Gai boarded the Gigant Horse and fought their way to the bridge, Ackdos engaged them in battle. While Gai fought Ackdos, Marvelous reprogrammed the Gigant Horse's laser cannons to wipe out the entire fleet. Enraged that the majority of his military had been wiped out in a single instant, Ackdos fought Marvelous and Gai before they blasted the control console, causing the Gigant Horse to crash while they used the power of the Goseigers to land safely. Despite the Gigant Horse's destruction, however, Ackdos managed to survive as well, landing behind the Gokaigers for a final battle. Using rapid Gokai Changes, the Gokaigers began to overwhelm Ackdos before blasting him at point blank range with the Gokai Galleon Buster. In his final moments, Ackdos cursed the space pirates before perishing in a massive explosion. With the destruction of Ackdos, his son, his lieutenants, and the massive forces the Gokaigers had wiped out throughout the invasion campaign, the Zangyack empire began to break apart into factions, its influence and control over the universe slowly diminishing.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates

Emperor Ackdos Gill's Death

Super Hero Taisen

During the events of Super Hero Taisen, Ackdos was resurrected alongside his son to be part of the new Dai-Zangyack under Emperor Marvelous, where he was easily embarrassed by Warz's cowardly behavior towards their new leader. During the battle against the combined Super Sentai and Kamen Rider forces, the Gigant Horse made both Gill's grow giant and they fought against Go-BusterOh briefly. However, during the formation of Big Machine, Ackdos was quickly destroyed when the transformation caused the colossal mecha to side-swipe him.


Gokdos Gill.

Main article: Gokdos Gill

As an evil space emperor, Ackdos Gill was embodied by Gokdos Gill, a foe who was fought by the Gokaigers on the Zangyack homeworld before being recreated from Gai's memory by Bangray. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 29: The Monarch of the Monarchs

Along with his son, Ackdos was survived by his nephew Bacchus Gill who, in honor of their memory, vowed to restore the Space Empire Zangyack. Ultimately, however, he too fell at the hands of the Gokaigers as well as the Go-Busters. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters vs. Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: The Movie


As the emperor of the Zangyack, Ackdos is a successful and typical tyrant. He rules most of the universe at the time of the series and takes great pleasure in subjugating whole planets into it's knees. He is calmer and more cunning than his son, yet he does treat his underlings like dirt as much as (if not worse than) Warz does. While he has placed Warz in the care of his statesmen and does not have much confidence in his abilities to conquer a planet like Earth, Ackdos still seems to care greatfully for his son. This is shown when he sends the Great Warz, a giant robot with his son's likeness. He even goes so far as to take control of the Zangyack invasion after his son is killed and imprison Damaras for failing to safekeep him. He even placed a memorial portrait and swears to avenge his son's death while putting an Unlimited Reward on Captain Marvelous’s bounty.

Outside of Warz, Ackdos has a fierce temper and little to no empathy for either the lives of the multitude of planets he's conqured or even his subordinates. While he seemed to have respected him enough to task him with keeping him safe, He instantly has Damaras imprisoned for failing to protect him, refusing to let Damaras explain or let Insarn speak out. He only releases him after some Zangyack forces and Zatsurig were defeated and because Insarn pleaded to have him kill the Gokaigers. He is even manipulative of them, as he tricked Insarn into fighting and being killed by the Gokaigers just so he can wear them down and buy time for the final Zangyack attack on Earth. At best, he respects this Imperial Guards, though that's most likely because they are all unquestionably loyal to him and are the ones he trusts the most.
