Biography

Goggle V

Ken'ichi is a 22-year-old (51 in Gokaiger) world class explorer and mountain climber. By saving Dr. Hongou from Deathdark's Madaramen, he came to realize what peril the world was in. His forehead jewel is the ruby (it has the lowest roll call pitch), symbolizing the lost civilization of Atlantis. His rhythmic gymnastic apparatus is the rope, which is similar to the ropes he uses when rappelling.

Gokaiger

Legend War

Years later, Akama fought alongside not only his own team, but every single Sentai ranger in existence, against the Empire of Zangyack when it attacked the Earth in the Great Legend War. After fighting against hundreds of Gormin and their Zgormin commanders. AkaRanger noticed the fleet moving towards them, he gathered all the Rangers together and gave them the order to sacrifice their powers to wipe out the first invasion's armada. The GoggleRed powers are later utilized by Captain Marvelous via the Ranger Keys.

Empowering the Combination Nin Shuriken to form Wild Tousai Shuriken King, the first 38 Super Sentai further imbued their successors with the power to perform the Zyuoh Ninnin Super Sentai Burst, destroying Gillmarda with the combined power of all 40 Super Sentai.

Transformation and Roll Call

Design

GoggleRed wears a red cloth suit with a white torso rounded down towards a stripe around the belt-buckle, with a white belt and a buckle in a triangular form; the long top of the triangle is a stretched-out letter "G" with the Arabic number "5" filling the rest. His gloves are white with a red band around the wrists and the boots are pure white. A pin with the Goggle V logo is pinned on his left side and a scarf flows around his neck. Beneath the belt is a white pocket where he keeps his Goggle Sabre. The helmet is split in three, with a red top and a gray mouthpiece at the bottom. His visor is black with the relief from above the visor falling down making it appear similar to a pair of goggles instead of uniform. Above the visor is an ornate design with a red ruby in the center carved in the shape of a circle, a representation of the number "1".

Legend Sentai Devices

The GoggleRed Ranger Key.

"Goggle V!"
Mobilates' Gokai Change announcement[src]

The GoggleRed Ranger Key (ゴーグルレッドレンジャーキー Gōguru Reddo Renjā Kī) is Ken'ichi Akama's personal Ranger Key and what became of his powers after he along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.

This key along with the majority of the Ranger Keys were collected by the Red Pirates and later used by the Gokaigers. The GoggleRed Ranger Key was mainly used by Captain Marvelous (Gokai Red), who used it to fight as GoggleRed. It was also used by Gai Ikari on one occasion.

The Goggle V keys, along with all the Ranger Keys of the first 33 Super Sentai, were briefly taken by the Black Cross King and turned into Ranger puppets that were fought by the Gokaigers and the Goseigers. The Goggle V keys were defeated by Super Gosei Black. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. Ken'ichi received his key and became GoggleRed once more. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates


Goggle V Ressha
(currently unreleased)

The Legend Sentai Ressha (レジェンド戦隊レッシャー Rejendo Sentai Ressha) are Ressha based on the mecha, specifically those belonging to the Red heroes, of the ToQgers' predeceeding Super Sentai teams. They can form a unique combination of ToQ-Oh reminiscent of past Sentai Robos by switching with Red Ressha. The ToQ Changer toy is shown to have sounds for Legend Ressha of all 37 previous Sentai.

The Goggle V Ressha (ゴーグルファイブレッシャー Gōguru Faibu Ressha) currently only exists as a sound on the ToQ Changer.

"Banban! Banban!"
―Standby announcement

"Baban! Baban! Baban! Baban! Ba-Ba-Ba-Ban! Goggle V!"
―Past Sentai ability announcement

The Goggle V Gear (ゴーグルファイブギア Gōguru Faibu Gia) is one of many Sentai Gears used by the Zenkaigers to battle the Kikaitopia Dynasty Tojitendo. In particular, when used by a Zenkaiger's Geartlinger, the Goggle V Gear allows the user to access ribbons akin to those used by Goggle V. This in turn allows the user to catch the enemy while performing a shocking attack to the enemy.

Imitations

Deathdark V

Deathdark Red: Goggle Red's evil counterpart in Deathdark V, a team made of five ninja Spotmen who use a transformation technique similar to Tanuki Mozoo to become the heroes. As with the rest of Deathdark V, Deathdark Red appears similar to Goggle Red with slight differences, its scarf is the color of his uniform (red) instead of pure white, its weapon is black in color and the team introduction pose has their arms going downwards instead of upwards like the Goggle V entry pose. Also unlike the original Goggle Red, Deathdark Red does not have the energy of the ruby. Deathdark Red was defeated in a swordfight by Goggle Red. Upon defeat, along with the rest of the team, it changed back to an ordinary Spotman. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 45: Two Blacks!

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Ken'ichi Akama is portrayed by Ryouji Akagi. As GoggleRed, his suit actor was Kazuo Niibori.

Notes

  • Although Goggle V never aired in the US in any form, a doll version of GoggleRed can be seen in the opening of later seasons of The Facts of Life, years before any Sentai arrived in the US outside Hawaiian adaptations.
  • Coincidentally, his actor's last name has "aka", his Ranger color.
  • His visor is the only one on his team to be split in two.
