A Privateer Appears (私掠船現る Shiryakusen Arawaru) is the fifteenth episode of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger. It is also the first part of the two-part debut of Basco ta Jolokia, which concludes with Clash! Sentai vs. Sentai.


The Zangyack Empire sends a privateer to Earth and Captain Marvelous identifies him as his old rival/former comrade Basco ta Jolokia, who is armed with Ranger Keys of the Sixth Rangers.


On the Gokai Galleon, the crew talk about how their bounty have raised much higher than that of the Red Pirates. Ignoring the comment, Captain Marvelous tells Navi to foretell their next course. However, the robot parrot sees that danger is coming their way. At that time, a crimson Zangyack battleship arrives to Earth with Warz Gill learning that it is captained by a privateer under the Zangyack Empire. The crew then meet the privateer, which Captain Marvelous identifies as Basco ta Jolokia who has also come for the Greatest Treasure. To everyone's shock, Marvelous tries to attack Basco before three giant Sugormin appear on orders from Damaras. Forced to let Basco go, a hesitant Captain Marvelous forms Gokaioh as he and the others assume their Gokaiger forms to defeat them with the Ranger Keys while Basco watches.

Soon after, though Marvelous is initially relucant to talk about it, the team learn that Basco was also a member of the Red Pirates and was the one responsible for the 3-man group's destruction in an act of treachery. At that time, after talking with Damaras, Basco calls Marvelous out for a duel. Despite Marvelous' insistence, the team joins him in confronting Basco after he revealed that he possesses Ranger Keys of the extra Sentai heroes as he uses his trumpet to conjure DragonRanger, KingRanger, TimeFire, Shurikenger, and DekaBreak.

Though the Gokaigers manage to defeat the sixth hero Sentai Warriors in one-on-one duels, returned to their original Ranger Key forms, the tables are turned in Basco's favor by overwhelming the pirates with KibaRanger, MegaSilver, GaoSilver, AbareKiller, MagiShine, BoukenSilver, the Go-On Wings, Shinken Gold, and Gosei Knight. With his crew brutally beaten without mercy, Marvelous realizes they are Basco's actual targets and is powerless to save them. He is left with the Ranger Keys of the five warriors that were defeated as Basco takes his shipmates captive.
