Notes

This Super Sentai series celebrated the franchise's 25th Anniversary in 2001.

  • Gaoranger is notable for introducing the concept of 'auxiliary mecha', which were additional individual mecha which could combine with the main robot(s) to form new combinations or weapons. Auxiliary mecha would become a staple of Sentai after Gaoranger.
  • GaoSilver is the first non-core warrior whose actor is specifically credited in the opening credits in his own slot, (ex. MegaSilver's actor had been lightly credited in the episodes he appeared in but was not given his own slot like the others) starting with Episode 28, as well as being the first non-core warrior featured in the theatrical Super Sentai movie, Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger: The Fire Mountain Roars.
  • This is the first Sentai series where the entire team have cellphone transformation devices.
  • This is the first Sentai to join forces with members from various past Super Sentai teams instead of with the previous team for their team-up special, Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai.
  • Despite having already dubbed Power Rangers: Wild Force, a Korean dub of Gaoranger called Power Rangers Jungle Force (파워레인저 정글포스 pawoleinjeo jeong-geulposeu) was shown in South Korea instead of Samurai Sentai Shinkenger.
  • This is the first series where the five core members died and later were revived.
  • Hyakujū (百獣) is a Japanese phrase that translates to "all kinds of animals", but it also literally translates as "hundred animals". In the context of Gaoranger, the latter translation is intended.
  • Gao (ガオ) is Japanese onomatopoeia equivalent to a roaring sound. The Gaoranger roll call uses the kanji for "fang" ( kiba) and "howl" ( hoe) which are read together as "Gao" (牙吠).
  • This is the very first season to get released on DVD.
  • This is the first series having a "long roll call" of each Ranger, instead of a simple name declaration.
  • Gaoranger did not have a team up with the preceding season, Mirai Sentai Timeranger. However, it had one with the following season, Ninpuu Sentai Hurricanger.
