Gosei Sentai Dairanger (五星戦隊ダイレンジャー Gosei Sentai Dairenjā), translated into English as Five-Star Squadron Great Ranger, is a Japanese tokusatsu television series. It is the seventeenth programme in the long-running Super Sentai franchise of tokusatsu programmes produced by TOEI Entertainment, following Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger. It was originally broadcast from February 19, 1993 to February 11, 1994.

The series was released in the United States by Shout! Factory on November 10, 2015.[1] A trailer for the series was on the American Zyuranger DVD after the end of the final episode.

Action scenes featuring exterior shots of the Dairanger mecha as well as footage of KibaRanger were used in the second season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The core five costumers would not be used in Power Rangers until Power Rangers Super Megaforce and in the comic series Power Rangers Universe.

The average ratings of the series was 7.0%.[2]


"Five stars, shining in the heavens! Gosei Sentai Dairanger!"
―Team roll call[src]

Over 8,000 years ago, the Daos civilization flourished in Southern China. The Daos Empire consisted in three tribes: Dai, Shura (ancestors of today's humanity) and Gorma who lived harmoniously. However, one day the Gorma Tribe tried to take over the Empire. Thus began the war between the Gorma and the Dai Tribe. The battle continued for 5,000 years, led by the Gorma Triumvirate. The Mythical Qi Beasts appeared to oppose the Gorma, whose magical powers had increased to the point where they could turn themselves into monsters. Five Dai warriors' Qi powers had increased to the point where they could control the Mythical Qi Beasts. The war ended with the disappearance of both the Dai and Gorma Tribes. In 1993, the Gorma Tribe, one of the Daos' two missing branches, revived to take over the world. To counter them, Master Kaku assembled a team of five youths with high levels of Qi. They became the Dairangers of present time.

Use in Power Rangers

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers would use mecha, monster, and KibaRanger footage, but only to a limited extent and never using the other five Dairangers. This led to some very awkward fight scenes as the Power Rangers fought Dairanger monsters that - as Saban did not have the suits - were never onscreen with them, or Zyu2 monsters fighting Dairanger mecha in the same way.

Since Saban had still paid for all the footage, they tried for years to find a way to use it as late as Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, but eventually they gave up. [3]

Eventually the suits showed up in Power Rangers Megaforce/Super Megaforce. First, RyuuRanger makes an appearance in Troy's flash forwards to the Legendary Battle; and a ShishiRanger Key was used at San Diego Comic Con, with Dairanger appearances in the Super Megaforce promo. Finally, the Rangers turned into the Dairangers in "Earth Fights Back" (and later "Samurai Surprise"), as the Legendary Squadron - thus using an extra minute of Gokaiger footage.


The 15th Anniversary Super Sentai Series logo

This is the reunion photo of the core Dairangers in 2016 (w/ Tatsuya Nomi a year before he passed away).

  • This series was considered the 15th anniversary series at the time of airing.
  • While never fully adapted outside of costumes, Zord footage, and monster footage for PR Season 2, that season and others have had used some of the Dairanger costumes and props:
  • The original name for this season was supposed to be Daikenger.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 2: What’s a “Kaiger”?
  • In the Indonesian Dub, Dairanger was renamed to "Star Ranger".[Citation needed]
