|This article is about a/an enhancement mode in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.|
Gold Mode (ゴールドモード Gōrudo Mōdo) is a golden armor accessed by Gokai Silver, his personal power-up. It is from this form that he gains the strength of the Sixth Rangers of the past. He transforms with the aid of the Gold Anchor Key (ゴールドアンカーキー Gōrudo Ankā Kī), which is a combination of the fifteen Sixth Ranger Keys.
- Bouken Silver
- Go-On Gold
- Go-On Silver
- Shinken Gold
- Gosei Knight
As seen in spin-off media, any of the original five Gokaigers can assume Gold Mode.
When activated, it forms an armor similar to the key around his chest and the spikes of the "anchor" serve as thigh armor. His helmet is pushed down and the Gokai Spear changes to Anchor Mode.
After Gai somehow fused the keys of the Go-On Wings duo, Go-On Gold and Go-On Silver, Don later suggested that he do the same with all 15 Sixth Ranger keys using his imagination. After Gai pleaded for it, all 15 Sixth Rangers banded together to form the Golden Anchor Key, a key shaped like an Anchor with all the Sixth Rangers' faces on it. Gai normally uses his Ranger Keys by placing them inside his Gokai Cellular and then scanning them, but the Anchor Key is instead inserted into a slot in the bottom of the Gokai Cellular.
Overpowering Basco ta Jolokia's manifestation of the Black Knight Ranger Key, Gokai Silver entered Gold Mode to defeat the Black Knight with the Gokai Legendream Final Wave, with Hyuuga regaining the Black Knight Key before giving it to Gai.
In Basco's foiled attempt to take the Greater Power of GoGo-V, Gokai Silver enters Gold Mode to defeat the manifestation of the Zubaan Ranger Key with the Gokai Legendream Final Wave as the five Gokaigers defeated the Black Lion Rio and Confrontation Beast Chameleon-Fist Mele Keys.

After the Gokaigers fought Action Commander Daiyarl as the Abarangers, Gokai Silver assumed Gold Mode, performing the Gokai Legendream attack to assault the Action Commander before the five Gokaigers destroyed him with the Gokai Scramble.
When the Gokaigers faced off against Great Scientist Zaien, Gokai Silver assumed Gold Mode to deal with his Zugormin trio, leaving the five Gokaigers to fight Zaien as the Livemen. Gokai Silver destroyed the Zugormin with the Gokai Legendream before Zaien was personally taken down by Gokai Blue.
When fighting Basco's manifestations of the Zubaan and Wolzard Fire Ranger Keys, after assaulting them as the combined Go-On Wings, Gokai Silver assumed Gold Mode, finishing them off with the Gokai Legend Crash.

Fighting Zan-KT0 of the Shot while on a mission back in time to October 2nd 2010, the Gokaigers and Gokai Silver Gold Mode destroyed the Matroid with the GokaiGalleon Buster's Rising Strike and the Gokai Legendream.
When the Gokaigers created a diversion against Imperial Guard Zatsurig, Gokai Silver assumed Gold Mode after Red, Blue, Yellow and Green used their finishers, taking a blast from Zatsurig when Gokai Pink appeared from behind him and took out the Imperial Guard's eye, disabling his powers.
After the Gokaigers fought Action Commander Juju as the Kakurangers with Ninjaman, Gokai Silver assumed Gold Mode, performing the Gokai Legendream attack to destroy his Zugormin duo before the five Gokaigers destroyed the Action Commander with the GokaiGalleon Buster.
As the Gokaigers fought against Dyrandoh's extermination forces, Gokai Silver assumed Gold Mode, performing the Gokai Legendream attack to destroy a duo of Zugormin.
Confronting Zangyack Emperor Ackdos Gill on the bridge of the Gigant Horse, Gokai Silver assumed Gold Mode, his increased strength forcing the Emperor to get out of his chair after previously holding his own against Gokai Silver and Gokai Red while sitting down, as well as holding him off while Gokai Red took control of the Gigant Horse and used its weaponry to destroy the entire Zangyack Great Fleet. However, the enraged Emperor overpowered both Gokaigers, forcing Gai out of Gold Mode, forcing them to send the Gigant Horse crashing to the ground to take him down.
When all six Gokaigers fought Ackdos Gill, after bombarding him using the powers of various past Sentai heroes, the five Gokaigers transformed into past Super Rangers, with Gai assuming Gold Mode again, and attacked the Emperor before Gokai Silver Gold Mode assaulted him with special version of the Gokai Legend Crash. Gokai Silver Gold Mode performed the Gokai Shooting Slash with the other Gokaigers. Refusing to die, Ackdos Gill blasted back at the Gokaigers. Gai, though forced out of Gold Mode again, appeared out of the explosion backed up by the rest of the Gokaigers, firing the Gokai Galleon Buster at point blank range to finally destroy the Emperor.
After the Gokaigers fought Bacchus Gill as past Red Rangers, Gokai Silver assumed Gold Mode, performing the Gokai Legendream attack to assault the leader of the Zangyack remnant before the five Gokaigers destroyed him with the GokaiGalleon Buster.
In this form, he gains an increase in both speed and strength and is able to use a third variant of his Final Wave (after the Gokai Spear's Gokai Shooting Star and Gokai Supernova), called Gokai Legendream (ゴーカイレジェンドリーム Gōkai Rejendorīmu).
To do so, he begins by inserting the Gokai Silver Key into and swinging the Gokai Spear, which summons the heads of the past 15 Sixth Rangers with a flash of their personal symbols. First MegaSilver, GaoSilver, MagiShine, Bouken Silver, Go-On Gold, Go-On Silver and Gosei Knight appear to use their weapons in gun mode (MagiShine's sole weapon in any case) to fire at the enemy to form the next line of Rangers. The blasts form into DragonRanger, KibaRanger, KingRanger, TimeFire, Shurikenger, AbareKiller, DekaBreak and Shinken Gold, and they slash at (or in DekaBreak's case punch) the enemy to finish it off, and Gai himself performs the final attack by slashing the enemy with the Gokai Spear. When first used, the attack seemed to tire him out.
Appearances: Episodes 19-21, 23, 24, 29, 30, 33, 35, 38, 40, 46, 50, & Go-Busters vs. Gokaiger.
Gokai Legend Crash
During the fight with Wolzard Fire and Zubaan in episode 31, Gai uses an alternative Gold Mode Final Wave called Gokai Legend Crash (ゴーカイレジェンドクラッシュ Gōkai Rejendo Kurasshu), which involves Gai swinging the Gokai Spear with devastating results, while manifestations of all 5 previous Silver Rangers and Go-On Gold are phased in and out over Gai as he swings the Spear. In the final fight against Emperor Ackdos Gill, all 15 of Gai's predecessors appeared as manifestations for the attack.
Appearances: Episodes 31 & 51
Gokai Red Gold Mode
In the special DVD, Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: Let's Do This Goldenly! Roughly! 36 Round Gokai Change!!, Captain Marvelous and Gai's minds are combined into one body by Insarn. Assuming a hybrid Gokai Red/Gokai Silver form, Gai assumes the form of the first 34 Red Rangers in quick succession, which exhausts him when he transforms into Gokai Red.

The Gold Anchor Key (ゴールドアンカーキー Gōrudo Ankā Kī) is a unique anchor-shaped Ranger Key and the combination of the first fifteen 6th Rangers' Keys, bearing all their faces on it. After Gai somehow fused the keys of Go-On Gold and Go-On Silver, Don would later suggest that he do the same with all 15 Sixth Ranger keys using his imagination. After Gai pleaded for it, all 15 Sixth Rangers banded together to form the Gold Anchor Key.
