The Wolf Castle is destroyed, but Ken'ichi and the right-arm broken Dr. Hongo escape. Dr. Hongo sends the Comboy to recruit 4 civilians to become Dai Sentai Goggle V; Tatsuya Ueda recruits the already joined Ken'ichi, Makoto Takenaka recruits Touto University teacher Kanpei Kuroda, Haruo Shimada recruits hockey player Saburou Aoyama, Daisuke Ooyama recruits zoo keeper Futoshi Kijima, and Akane Aizawa recruits gymnast Miki Momozono. Meanwhile, Deathdark, having been exposed, rise their fortress, Deathtopia, out of the waters and sets a course for Japan. The five recruits agree to stand up against Daethdark and are given Goggle Braces to transform into Goggle V; Ken'ichi transforms into GoggleRed, Kanpei transforms into GoggleBlack, Saburou transforms into GoggleBlue, Futoshi transforms into GoggleYellow, and Miki transforms into GogglePink. Kai Mozoo begins his attack on the city, but is stopped by Goggle V. After defeating the Spotmen, the team destroys Kai Mozoo with the Goggle Victory Flash. Enraged, Deathdark Fuhrer Taboo launches Fan Kong. Fan Kong shows up, resurrects Kai Mozoo, and absorbs his body. Fan Kong blows Goggle V away, but Goggle V launches Goggleceasar. GoggleBlack and GogglePink pilot the Goggleceasar, GoggleRed pilots the Goggle Jet, GoggleBlue pilots the Goggle Tank, and Goggle Yellow pilots the Goggle Dump. Goggle Jet and Goggleceasar launch missiles at Fan Kong, while the Tank and Dump Container exit he Goggleceasar. Goggle Tank and Dump then launch from the Containers. Fan Kong tries to crush Goggle Tank, but is stopped by Goggle Dump. Then Goggle Jet, Tank, and Dump combine to create the Goggle Robo. After a brief fight, Goggle Robo destroys Fan Kong with the Electron Galaxy Cut, forcing Deathdark to retreat, and the episode ends.
