"Oh, you're so strong. Then you're good. This is Gock, this is Magock. I'm Escape and I'm pretty good."
―Escape's first words after attacking Enter.[src]

"This is the worst. My plan has gone to waste. Pleased to meet you. This is Gock. This is Magock. And I am Escape. I'm pretty good!"
―Escape introducing herself to the Go-Busters.[src]

"But why? Papa!"
―Escape when betrayed by Messiah and her final words before her original self's death.[src]

"Daddy... I became pretty good... right?"
―Escape's final words to Ryuji before her death.[src]

Escape (エスケイプ Esukeipu) was the second Vaglass avatar serving Messiah whom she referred to as "Papa."

Character History

Origin

Enter and Escape.

Escape was created in Hyper Space using the data of the Transport Research Center, scientists Messiah absorbed in the incident on Christmas 1999. Hiromu's mother Michiko Sakurada was among the "donors" due to Escape naming her two large handguns Gock and Magock, the same names Michiko gave to the statues of black and white dogs she owns that the two guns' charms were modeled after.

Go-Busters

Escape is sent from Hyper Space after the emergence of Beet J. Stag and Masato Jin as the new Go-Busters. Escape appears out of nowhere and briefly attacks Enter, flaunting her status over Enter. She then creates Keyloid and has him lock up the people inside a skyscraper who were playing an "escape game" in a scheme to have the KeyZord smash the skyscraper while the people are locked inside, but Keyloid is destroyed by the Go-Busters. She briefly duels with Red Buster before the KeyZord arrives, noting his skill in particular before departing to watch them battle her creation as it created a subspace field. Once it is destroyed, she notes her surprise at their skill before leaving. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 22: The Beautiful Avatar: Escape

Escape pinning the Go-Busters down.

After pestering Enter over his meeting with Messiah and telling him they will now work together, Escape takes a child's toy magnet to create Jishakuloid which causes a disruption in the Iwagami district with his power to magnetize people. In the initial engagement against Jishakuloid, the Go-Busters are incapacitated with the exceptions of Masato Jin and Yoko Usami who don experimental protective suits to face Escape and her Metaloid again. Escape quickly destroys Masato's protector but Yoko faces Escape personally, allowing the Go-Busters to assemble and terminate the Jishakuloid. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 23: The Will of the Inheritors

Escape covers Rousokuloid as he attempts to use a local television station to broadcast his hypnotic power across the airwaves. Confronting the Go-Busters, Escape is engaged by Blue Buster who hopes that she might give him answers as to the nature of the Avatars. However, upon seeing that getting answers from her is not going to happen, Blue Buster purposely overheats himself, giving Escape the fight she desired. Eventually, Blue Buster manages to defeat the astonished Escape who leaves satisfied just as he loses consciousness. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 25: Pursue the Mystery of the Avatars!

Fall of Messiah

The two dogs painting of Gock & Magock

In the Segawa district, Escape confronts Enter on the matter of her connection with Messiah being severed. Enter assures her that he had found a new purpose. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 28: Beware of Chickens!

Escape reacts to the shutdown of Messiah.

Escape's assistance is employed by Enter as he stages an attack on the Buster Machine hangar. After the Buglars are defeated, the pair go all out with Enter separating Hiromu from the others who are pursued by Escape to Hangar 02. As Escape and the Buglars arrive at the hangar, Hiromu regroups with the others in time for Great Go-Buster's entry into subspace covered by the Energy Management Center staff. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 29: Breaking Into Hyperspace!

Escape fights with Masato and Beet as they cover the others escape to terminate Messiah. After Hiromu destroys Messiah while the others destroy the Messiah Cell body, an angry Escape flees. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 30: Messiah Shutdown

Powered Custom

Following the Go-Busters' upgrade to Powered Custom, Escape is satisfied as she tests their new power in a skirmish. Later facing off against Blue Buster personally, Escape is forced to fall back when her data is damaged with her guns and goggles being struck. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 36: Go-Buster Lioh, Shoom!

Escape crashes the Go-Busters' wedding.

Whilst thinking of Enter and his use of the Messiah Metaloids can be to destroy Messiah for whatever agenda he has, Escape decides to take matters into her own hands to ensure Messiah does evolve, taking her to a church where a Messiah Card assimilates a bridal tiara to create Tiaraloid. Alerted, the Go-Busters arrive to the church to find a bride running off due to Tiaraloid extracting the girl's digitized love. When Masato and J. arrive, Escape interfere to keep them from destroying Tiaraloid as she crashes more weddings across the city before the Messiah Metaloid completely escapes detection. Having hooked herself up to her tablet, Escape is confronted by Enter who questions her meddling before allowing her to continue upon seeing her resolve. Lured by the Go-Busters who use a fake wedding ploy with Yoko and her former teacher Mamoru Hasegawa, Escape enters the church in a black bridal grown before opening fire at the Go-Busters, luring them away to fight her. As the Go-Busters transform, Escape battles them as Hiromu is forced to leave to engage TiaraZord with Go-Buster Ace and Tategami Lioh. With Tiarazord taken out, Escape takes a blow meant for Tiaraloid as Messiah partially emerge. It is at this point that Escape assumes her upgraded form: Escape Evolve for the first time. As Yellow Buster assumes Powered Custom to combat Escape Evolve, the other Go-Busters dealt with Tiaraloid, leaving Blue Buster Powered Custom to destroy her. With Escape caught off guard, she is hit by Yellow Buster and forced to escape. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 37: The Black and White Brides

While Ryuji reaches through to Kenta Sawai, whose body is being possessed by Messiah via a card, Escape Evolve is fought with the other Go-Busters before being spirited away from their finisher by Enter. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 39: Finishing Blow! Messiah's Fist

Creating Parabolaloid 2 in the Banshu District to help her find the remaining Messiah Cards, Escape is confronted by Enter as he was revealed to have absorbed a Messiah Card before Parabolaloid 2 leaves to find the Messiah Card he detects in the Kakino District. However, upon finding it, Messiah Card 07 infects Parabolaloid 2 and upgrades him into a pseudo-Messiah Metaloid. Ultimately, Enter, revealing his Enter Unite form, extractes Messiah Card 07 for himself before leaving the downgraded Metaloid to be easily destroyed by the Go-Busters. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 40: Suffering J. and the Messiahloid

Escape was forced to serve Enter to preserve Messiah.

Escape faces off against Ryuji again when he arrives in the dynamo of Megazordloid with Yellow Buster joining the fight soon enough before destroying Megazordloid's dynamo with the two Go-Busters getting the deactivated Messiah Metaloid's captives out in time. With the plan a failure, Escape manages to get out before Buster Hercules destroys MegaZordloid. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 42: Attack! Within the Megazord

Escape pilots the new Type Zeta Megazord, evolved via a surviving Messiah Card from a Type Delta which emerges from the wreckage of Megazordloid. Though overwhelming Buster Hercules and Tategami Lioh with ease, Megazord Zeta is forced to fall back as it has yet to fully stabilize. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 42: Attack! Within the Megazord

Escape and Enter menace the Go-Busters at Christmas.

Escape accompanies Enter as he uses Kentateloid, created from two remaining Messiah Cards, to exploit the Go-Busters anger at him in the run-up to Christmas, provoking the Go-Busters with the memory of the events of thirteen years ago. Escape holds Masato and J back so Kentateloid can deal with the Go-Busters trio, with the latter fight ending in a stalemate as Messiah begins to manifest in the fused Metaloid. Though Escape tells Enter that they should merge the Cards in their possession to recreate Messiah, Enter tells her that the evolution of a new Messiah will be more interesting and that Escape should reconsider her dependence on the Messiah she knew. Ultimately, however, once Enter Unite salvages the two Messiah Cards from Kentateloid's destruction, Escape takes them from him to enhance Megazord Zeta. Grabbing Enter and telling him that she will restore Messiah to his former glory, Escape has Megazord Zeta grind him into data within its hands before turning her attention to the Go-Busters. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 43: Christmas Determination

Having seemingly terminated Enter and intending to wipe out the Go-Busters, Escape battles their Megazords in the enhanced Megazord Zeta as Messiah's consciousness surfaces and defeats Go-Buster Ace. After the Go-Busters retreat despite the intent of a gravely injured Hiromu to continue, Megazord Zeta proceeds to summon ten Megazord models. Once repairs are done, the Go-Busters head out to face the first wave of Vaglass Megazords with Cheeda Nick piloting Go-Buster Ace to give Hiromu time to heal. After the first batch of two Alphas and two Betas are destroyed, Escape join the fray in Megazord Zeta as Gamma and Delta Megazords arrive. Learning that the Zeta-Type is attempting to assimilate the summoned Valgass Megazords, Go-Buster Oh and Buster Hercules destroy the second wave before the final wave, composing of each Megazord of the four main archetypes, arrive. Even with FS-0O providing aid, Megazord Zeta absorbs the remaining Alpha, Beta, and Gamma types to evolve into the titanic Messiah Reboot. It is at this point that, to her shock, Escape's data is reabsorbed back by Messiah as he has no more need for her. Ultimately, despite initially overpowering the Go-Busters, the tide is turned against Messiah Reboot when Hiromu returns, bringing with him an anti-virus with which he impales Messiah Reboot, resulting in the utter destruction of Messiah.

Go-Busters vs. Gokaiger

Escape with Damaras and Basco.

A manifestation of Escape is summoned by Enter during his collaboration with Bacchus Gill, alongside Avatar recreations of Zangyack Chief of Staff Damaras and Basco ta Jolokia, covering the two against the Go-Busters and Gokaigers. Engaging all five Go-Busters, this Escape is ultimately terminated despite advancing to Escape Evolve. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters vs. Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: The Movie

Alternate Timeline

After Great Demon Lord Azazel manages to kill the Go-Busters on New Years Eve 2012, Cheeda Nick meets God himself. For being the one millionth person to die that year, Nick is able to wish that Messiah never came into existence and thus Enter and Escape are erased from existence. However, Machine Empress Trange Star (the leader of the Machine Empire Mechalius, Vaglass' replacement in this universe) heavily resembles Escape. Enter and Escape are later returned to life when the wish is undone after Azazel's death although Escape was still dead by this point Tvicon.png TV STORY-Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters Returns vs. Dōbutsu Sentai Go-Busters

Recreation

With his new powers, Enter splices Escape's back-up data with flowers to recreate Escape with the ability to assume a Flower-Unite Form but with only the memories of herself before meeting the Go-Busters. Due to his modifications, Enter gains an obedient servant alongside Kuwagataloid. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 46: The New Fusion and Thermal Runaway!

However, Enter learns that he has fallen in love with Escape as she was and kills the copy in disgust before creating a replacement. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mission 47: Reset and Backup

Escape's death

Attempting to restore Escape's mind set while merging her Flower-Unite data with a snake, Enter realizes that her data is too corrupted for him to fix and parts ways with the aggressive and maddened incarnation. Left to her devices and desiring to be like her creator, Escape proceeds to assimilate any animal she comes across before facing the Go-Busters with Blue Buster intent to end her suffering. Despite thier attempts to destroy her, she manages to use tentacles to absorb matter and grow into a giant MegaZord Zeta-like form only to be defeated by Go-Buster King's Epsilon Slash. Though Escape survives, she is mortally wounded and is met by Ryuji. As her body derezzes, a dazed and delusional Escape calls Ryuji "papa" as he tells her she did him proud to ease her passing.

Kyoryuger vs. Go-Busters

Escape and Enter are both revived as they part of a Vaglass restoration program and they team up with the Deboth Army to awake Space War God Voldos. However, they are defeated by the Kyoryugers with Escape being killed for good by Utsusemimaru Lightning Aftershock attack.

Taken from the memory of Captain Marvelous, a recreation of Escape Evolve is brought forth alongside Enter Unite by Bangray among a collection of the most nefarious adversaries faced by the Super Sentai. Overwhelming Gokai Red and Zyuoh Eagle initially, Bangray's forces are matched when the Gokaigers and Zyuohgers join their respective Red warriors. Engaging Yamato Kazakiri in the new form of Zyuoh Whale, "Escape" and "Enter" are ultimately destroyed by his Zyuoh Final. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 29: The Monarch of the Monarchs

Super Sentai Battle Base

Escape is among the vast pantheon of villains which appear in the mobile game Super Sentai Battle Base, appearing in her natural Avatar form.

Personality

Escape was overbearing, arrogant and childish towards most people though she loved Messiah like a father in more ways than one. Like Enter, Escape had her own perception of emotionless morality yet loved to fight. After her data was corrupted beyond Enter's ability to repair, Escape was mentally unstable to the point of attacking even her creator and was left to her devices.

Forms

Escape

As an Avatar, Escape was able to cheat death as she simply reformed whenever she was destroyed as long as the source of her manifestation is left intact. In combat, she used great strength and agility in conjunction with her pistols; making her dangerous in both long range and melee fighting. Her pistols apparently possessed endless ammunition and she could also use the dog charms to attack.

Costume changes As with Enter, being an Avatar made of data, Escape had the ability to change her form instantaneously, assuming different outfits while retaining her human form. Unlike Enter, who had frequently done this, Escape changed costume on only a few occasions.

Arsenal

  • Gock and Magock

Gock (ゴク Goku) and Magock (マゴク Magoku) were two bayoneted automatic pistols, one black and the other white, with a dog charm hanging by a chain on the butt of each gun named Gock and Magock. She was highly skilled in using them in both mêlée and ranged combat. The dog charms could extend and strike at her opponents. Following her upgrade, she used the extended chains to swing the pistols around, making them useful blunt weapons, while simultaneously firing them.


Escape Evolve

Escape Flower Unite Form

Escape Animal Unite Form

Escape Evolve Animal Unite Form

concept art

  • Height: 174 cm

An altered form of Escape's Flower Unite Form spliced with a snake, this version of Escape was created by Enter in an attempt to restore her initial mindset. Having the assimilative abilities of Messiah, Escape consumed a crow, a dog, and a cat among various animals before fighting the Go-Busters.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Strength: Escape was far stronger than before since she was able to send Ryuji and Yoko flying with one swing of her giant right hand.

Abilities

Arsenal

  • 'Clawed Right Hand: Escape stopped using her blasters and instead had a giant right hand with razor sharp claws on the ends to hack and slash her enemies.
    • Energy Stab: Escape could charge her claws up with purple energy and stab forth at Masato and J. hard enough to take them down with one jab.
    • Tentacle Strike: In a similar fashion to Enter, Escape could fire forth tentacles from her clawed hand to ensnare her enemies which she did to Ryuji and Yoko.
  • Flower Arm: Escape retained one of her flower arms for combat but it was black and gold.

Appearances: Go-Busters Episode 48.


Escape Zeta

concept art

  • Height: 44.5 m
  • Weight: 1770 t

The result of Escape Evolve Animal Unite Form assimilating matter to transform into a giant similar to MegaZord Zeta with the elements of the assimilated fauna and flora in her form's design.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Flight: Escape could fly using her massive wing-like appendages.
  • Claw Projectiles: Escape retained her ability to fire purple claw tip-like energy projectiles from her hands.
