The Big Abare with the Dinosaur Robot Drill (恐竜ロボットドリルで大アバレ Kyōryū Robotto Doriru de Ō Abare) is the eighteenth episode of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger. Although it has elements regarding three Sentai series (Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger, Mirai Sentai Timeranger, and Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger), it is not an official tribute to any of these series. It reveals the origin of Gokai Silver and the debut of his mecha made from the Greater Powers of the three aforementioned series, GoZyuDrill.


Gai tells the team on the Gokai Galleon how he got three Greater Powers from three particular Sentai heroes. Marvelous confiscates his powers, putting Gai to a test to show him something Marvelous cannot do.


Gai reveals to the Gokaigers that he became Gokai Silver after acquiring three Greater Powers. When he is invited aboard the Gokai Galleon, he explains that a few days ago, he was hit by a truck while saving a girl across a street. While he was in a coma at the hospital, he had a dream of meeting DragonRanger, TimeFire and AbareKiller - the latter changing into Mikoto Nakadai and handing Gai the Gokai Cellular and Gokai Silver key. Before the three warriors disappeared, Mikoto told him to become the greatest hero and that they entrust the powers of the Zyurangers, Timerangers and Abarangers to him; at that point, Gai woke up from his coma with the phone and key in his hand.

Despite the revelation, Gai has yet to figure out how to use the three powers. Because of this, Captain Marvelous confiscates the Gokai Cellular and GokaiSilver key from Gai, asking him to show him something he cannot do. Later, while thinking of an answer to Captain Marvelous' question, Gai responds to a Zangyack invasion led by Action Commander Osogain at a construction yard. Despite not being able to change into Gokai Silver, he fends off the Gormin Sailors with lumber, but is quickly outnumbered and beaten up before the Gokaigers intervene. Seeing his unrelenting courage and recklessness in battle, Captain Marvelous hands Gai his phone and key - officially making him a member of the crew.

After finishing off the Gormin Sailors, the six Gokaigers change into the Shinkengers (though Marvelous handed Gai the King Ranger Key first before giving him the Shinken Gold Key due to his vague request) and destroy the two Zugormin units with the Shinken Gokai Slash attack. The five main Gokaigers then change into different silver warriors to weaken Osogain before Gokai Silver destroys him with the Gokai Supernova. When Osogain is enlarged and joined by six giant Zugormin units, Gokai Silver uses the powers of the TimeFire, Dragon Ranger and AbareKiller keys to summon GoZyuJin and destroyed them in a most show-stopping way. Back aboard the Gokai Galleon, Captain Marvelous tells Gai that while he is part of the crew, he is a pirate apprentice - much to Gai's dismay. Despite this, he looks forward to working with the Gokaigers. Don, however, is not comfortable with Gai addressing him as "Don-san".


Guest Cast

Gokai Changes


  • First appearance of Gokai Silver's mecha: GoZyuJin.

  • Viewership: 4.6%
  • Total Greater Powers Collected:
    • Gokaigers: 20
    • Basco: 0
  • This episode title is similar to a title of Abaranger, with the usage of "Abare" somewhere in the title.
  • This is the first episode that GokaiOh is not used.
  • When Luka was asking Gai about when did he obtain his powers,she consecutively mentions most of the units of time,in a similar manner on how Metal-Alice of the Agent asked about The End from Goseigers in Epic 34: Gosei Knight Justice.
  • Despite AbareKiller, DragonRanger, and TimeFire's appearance, this isn't the official tribute to the three as Yukito Sanjyou (AbareBlue) and Emiri Imanaka (AbarePink) appear in Ep. 29: The Abare Quick-Changing New Combination, Domon (TimeYellow) appears in Ep. 40: The Future is the Past, and Goushi (MammothRanger) appears in Ep. 50: The Day of Battle.
  • The three past heroes that appear to Gai (Mikoto NakadaiBurai  and Naoto Takizawa) all share the trait that they each debuted in their respective series as antagonists to the main team for personal reasons, reformed afterwards and later died.
  • The spirit of Gai that leaves his body going into a white light is a reference to a scene in episode 1 of Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger, where AbaRed had a similar experience.
  • This episode has some similarities to another 18th episode, Act 18: Samurai Promotion:
    • Like what happened to Genta in Act 18, Gai's transformation device was also confiscated in this episode. They both later regained their respective devices and officially became members of their respective teams.
    • The climactic battle for both episodes took place in the same location, the construction yard. Coincidentally, the Gokaigers also transformed into the Shinkengers although Gai transformed into KingRanger at first by mistake.
  • The scene where Gai talks with AbareKiller, DragonRanger, and TimeFire take place in the same place where KenDan was held.
  • This is the first non-tribute episode to feature a Ranger Legend.
  • As the three deceased sixth heroes depart before Gai wakes up, Mikoto tells him to thrill himself to his heart's content. In Abaranger, Mikoto had a thirst for excitement which he quenched by fighting as AbareKiller, a trait which he retained even after he abandoned evil and fought with the Abarangers. Gai honours this in episode 29 when the Gokaigers fight Action Commander Daiyarl as the Abarangers, while fighting as AbareKiller he comments on the thrill of the fight in an unusually calm tone of voice, referencing Mikoto Nakadai's personality.
  • Marvelous passing Ranger Keys to Gai through this episode was meant to symbolize the acknowledgment of Gokai Silver.
