Kaito Goshikida (五色田 介人 Goshikida Kaito) is the main protagonist of Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger. He is Zenkaizer (ゼンカイザー Zenkaizā), the White Ranger and leader of the Zenkaigers in Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger.

Kaito is 20 years old at the beginning of Zenkaiger. His birthdate is December 12, 2000.

History

Early Life

Kaito Goshikida was born to the couple, Isao and Mitsuko Goshikida. His parents created Secchan as his robotic companion when he was a young kid. Soon after the creation of Secchan, his parents went missing during their research involving parallel worlds. Since then, he has been living with his grandmother Yatsude.

Zenkaiger

In 2021, after Kaito's world merges with Kikaitopia, he along with the other humans welcome the Kikainoids with open arms. A month later, when the Tojitendo appear to subjugate their world, he is one of the only people to stand up to them.

After he accidentally activates Secchan, who leads him to his parents' secret lab, he gets his Zenkaiger equipment. He goes to fight the Tojitendo and meets Juran along the way. Then the two of transform into Zenkaigers and form their team, Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger to fight off the Tojitendo, and save their world.Tvicon.png TV STORY-No. 1-kai!

At the ending dance for one episode, a transformed Zenkaizer and a transformed Kamen Rider Saber appear, and join the others to participate in the dance.

Personality

Kaito wants to be the number one at everything. He is usually easygoing, but when his interest is triggered, he becomes hot-headed and excited. His ideas are very wacky but creative, as seen when attempting to bungee jump from the Tokyo Sky Tree with unlicensed equipment or whenever he makes a plan against the attacking World at the time.

He is a brave and daring man, as he did not hesitate to step in and oppose the evil invaders who were threatening his world, even when unarmed, outnumbered, and overpowered. When he was handed the Geartlinger and Sentai Gears, Kaito declared his desire of protecting the world with no hesitation. He is also very moral, looking down on cruel behaviors with good intentions, even against a World.

Despite his own eccentricities, he exhibits great friendliness, level-headedness, and sense of sympathy. He welcomed the quirks of his friends with open arms even before they became the Zenkaigers, and opted to look at the good one does before the bad. During the initial invasion of the Tojitendo, he did not discriminate against Juran due to just being a Kikainoid, but instead, he focused on the good he did instead.

In addition to that, Kaito had demonstrated that he can be a very perceptive person whenever the situation requires him to do so. For example, when Stacy (Actually Gege who is secretly controlling Stacy's body) had showed up and announced his intention to destroy the Tojitendo as well as join him and his team, Kaito had correctly denounced "Stacy" as an impostor due to Kaito himself being able to identify several key personality traits which had been frequently displayed by the "Real" Stacy during Kaito's previous encounters with Stacy that not even Gege himself was able to imitate even though Gege had access to Stacy's memories which would have allowed him to easily fool Kaito and his friends.

Having lost his parents for about ten years, Kaito longs to figure out what happened to them. When he gets an idea of what had happened to them he becomes more hot-headed than usual, rushing into combat and ignoring vulnerable civilians. While he reconciles with the need to help others he still prioritizes his parents, attempting to figure out ways to infiltrate the Tojitendo Palace, the place they were last rumored to be in.

Kaito's eccentric behaviors make him interesting to Zocks.

Kaito also has an optimistic opinion on fortunetelling, which he considers not as a foolproof instruction, but as a hopeful motivator in the times of hardship.

Zenkaizer

"Yon-Juu-Go Bang! Ba-Bang! Ba-Bang! Ba-Bang! Ba-Bang! Babababang! Zenkaizer!"

  • Height: 190 cm[1]
  • Weight: 90 kg[1]
  • Speed: 100 km/h[1]
  • Power: 1500 hp[1]

As with all of the Zenkaigers, Zenkaizer exceeds in gunmanship, though due to lacking a personal weapon, he also specializes in freestyle and physical hand-to-hand combat. His sole access to the Sentai Gears adds to his and the Zenkaiger's abilities. Zenkaizer would later gain the Zenryoku Zenkai Cannon, allowing him to summon Sentai Warriors for the situation at hand.

Transformation and Roll Call

Super Zenkaizer

"Super! Ba-Bang! Ba-Bang! Ba-Bang! Ba-Bang! Babababang! Chou Zenkai!"
―Transformation announcement[src]
  • Height: 210 cm[2]
  • Weight: 410 kg[2]
  • Speed: 120 km/h[2]
  • Power: 20,000,000 hp[2]

Zenkaizer can use the ZenKaijuu Gear to transform into Super Zenkaizer (スーパーゼンカイザー Sūpā Zenkaizā)[3].

In this form Zenkaizer gains bulky armor reminiscent of Dragon Caesar, increasing his strength and durability, along with being granted the drill-like Zenkai Tenlance to fight. Despite the increased body mass, the armor does not hinder Zenkaizer's mobility in any form, and he remains as agile as he did without it. Much like the Kikainoid Zenkaigers, Super Zenkaizer can grow to a giant size as Giant Super Zenkaizer, though in his case his height matches both ZenkaiOh and TwokaiOh. As Giant Super Zenkaizer, Kaito can combine into ZenKaijuOh with Zocks as Super Twokaizer SD.

Inhabiting Stacy's body due to actions of Inverted World, Kaito Goshikida transformed into Staceaser Kyoka to join the fight.

Arsenal

It could hold up to 6 rockets at a time for simultaneous fire, and after detonation more missiles are quickly prepared for launch. To fire the Ankoku Ryuseigun, Stacesar was required to unequip his shield. If the missiles did not detonate, they did not regenerate.

Zenkaizer Ranger Key

The Zenkaizer Ranger Key (ゼンカイザーレンジャーキー Zenkaizā Renjā Kī) is Kaito's personal Ranger Key released as part of the "Ranger Key Memorial Edition - After Gokai Hero Set". It is unknown if it will appear in a future crossover. Of course as with all Ranger Keys, should it exist, it would be able to transform one, i.e. one of the Gokaigers, into Zenkaizer.

Behind the Scenes

Etymology

Goshikida-Kaito.png
  • Kaito's surname, Goshikida (五色田 Goshikida), is composed of the kanji for five () and color ().
    • It sounds like "I'm the 5 colors" (五色だ Goshiki da).
  • 田 and 介 are used as radicals to form the kanji for "world" ( Kai), making his full name a play on words meaning "Five-Colored Worlder" (五色界人).

Notes

  • Zenkaizer is:
    • The first non-Red Ranger to appear in a Hand-Off.
    • The last core Zenkaiger to gain a personal weapon, only able to rely on his Geartlinger until he retrieved the Zenryoku Zenkai Cannon from Hakaizer.
    • The first Sentai main protagonist to not be red, though his clothes and suit design feature it as a prominent secondary color.
  • Zenkaizer's helmet features spots on his visor, which calls back to the early days of Sentai where helmet visors had to be perforated in order for the suit actors to see until the use of transparent materials became commonplace.
  • Zenkaiger episode 3 reveals that his astrological sign is Sagittarius while episode 39 reveals that his birthday is on December 12.
