Episodes

Main article: Engine Sentai Go-Onger Episodes

The episodes this season are referred as "GP", which is short for "Grand Prix" (グランプリ Guran Puri) akin to the name of every major race on the Formula 1 circuit. The titles are all made of two Japanese words that are linked, either with two words combined by the Japanese connector character "no" or by a subject word that is modified by the previous word. However, unlike other seasons which use a similar title structure (such as Gingaman or Boukenger), the first word is always written in Hiragana or Kanji, while the second word, alongside the "no" when used, is always written in Katakana.

Notes

  • Go-Onger is very similar to Choujuu Sentai Liveman; particularly with the first three Rangers being Red, Blue, and Yellow and the two that join the team being Green and Black respectively.
    • It should be noted that there is a bird-themed Red in both teams.
    • Both teams use some mechs which are a mix of animal & vehicle motifs.
    • One difference is that the Yellow and Blue Rangers' genders are switched (the Blue Ranger is male and the Yellow Ranger is female).
    • Another difference is that the Engines are sentient beings from another planet instead of lifeless mechs.
    • In Liveman, Black Bison and Green Sai joined after halfway through the show, whereas Go-On Green and Go-On Black joined in Go-Onger's second episode.
  • The Engines in Soul form were designed and animated by Toei Animation.
  • "Enjin" (炎神) literally translates as "Flame God." The logo for the series uses the English word "Engine" in the title instead of the romanization of the kanji as "Enjin."
  • "Go-Onger" (ゴーオンジャー Gōonjā) is a portmanteau of the Japanese words for "thunderous sound" (轟音 gōon) and "Ranger" (レンジャー Renjā). It is also related to the English words "go on."
  • The "Mantan Gun" (マンタンガン Mantangan) comes from the Japanese phrase for "full tank" (満タン mantan).
  • "Bikkuri" (びっくり) means "surprise," making Bikkurium the "element of surprise".
  • All members role call uses the word 'Kai' (in japanese) at the last syllable.
  • This is the 1st season where the name of the show starts with Go-. The second one is Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.
  • This is the first Sentai Season with two 6th Rangers, as well as the first Sentai team to officially feature a female 6th ranger.
  • This is the first car-themed Sentai that has an official Sixth and Seventh Ranger: The Go-On Wings team.
  • Combining the first parts of the 5 Go-Ongers' surnames, and full surname of the Go-On Wings, you get ekorogisuto, which is ecologist.
