This article is about a/an mecha in Mashin Sentai Kiramager.

Mashin Gattai King Express (魔進合体キングエクスプレス Mashin Gattai Kingu Ekusupuresu) is the secondary robo in Mashin Sentai Kiramager.

Overview

The combination of Mashin Express and Mashin Jouki, King Express is armed with the Jouki Chainsaw (ジョーキーチェーンソー Jōkī Chēnsō) blade on the left arm and the Jouki Jaws (ジョーキージョー Jōkī Jō) dinosaur head on the right arm. The mecha is exceptionally agile compared to Kiramaizin, capable of performing acrobatic leaps and kicks while able to fly short distances. Inherent from Smog Jouki, the Jouki Jaws can fire the Burn Blacker (バーンブラッカー Bān Burakkā) purple fire blast, which deals heavy damage to its target, and generate purple energy slashes with the Jouki Chainsaw. Its finisher is the King Express Burn Plaster (キングエクスプレスバーンプラスター Kingu Ekusupuresu Bān Purasutā), where King Express generates and fire energy constructs of its chest plate boomerang-style to destroy the Jamen Beast after it's entrapped in energy tracks created from its Mashin Express Jouki form.

Although Mashin Express could forcefully disable Galza's control of Mashin Jouki, the Demonic General of Betrayal can now counter and separate the mech through his Jamental, forcing the mecha to combine when Galza is out of the cockpit. King Express also acts as a restraint to keep Smog Jouki out of the way, as long as Galza can be held back.

Appearances: Kiramager Episodes 7-10, 14, 18

History

After the other Kiramagers pushed Juru too far past his limits, a manifestation of Mashin Express went through him and caused him to collapse. Later, during a battle with Cold Hot Dagames and Smog Jouki, a manifestation of King Express took form between the evil Mashin and a damaged Kiramaizin, one that only Juru and Galza could see. The vision causes Galza to pause his attack, allowing the Kiramagers to retreat. While unconscious, Juru dreams of King Oradin, who gives him guidance about his situation. After waking up, he sees a picture he drew in the dream in his sketchbook that leads him to the facility where the Kiramai Stone that brought Mabushina to Earth was being hidden.

Juru arrives in time to confront Galza, who was out to destroy the stone. After being cornered, Juru and Mabushina (who had followed him) retreat into the white stone, where he uses his Kiramental to turn it into Mashin Express and escape. Galza follows in Jouki, but when he catches up, Juru manages to take control of the evil Mashin. Using the previous vision of King Express as a base, he is able to force Jouki to combine with Express to bring his vision into reality. Despite Galza's resistance, Juru uses the newly created mecha to destroy Cold Hot Dagames.

Mashin

Mashin Express

Mashin Express (マシンエクスプレス Mashin Ekusupuresu) is a white shinkansen-themed Mashin. Created from the large White Kiramai Stone (ホワイトキラメイストーン Howaito Kiramei Sutōn) that gave King Oradin interstellar travel and brought Mabushina to Earth, Mashin Express can travel faster than Mashin Jouki, and fire blue energy beams from its headlights, as well as fly. Unlike the first eight Mashins, Express is only semi-sentient, having been made by Oradin as an emergency measure should Jouki be used for evil. Express can speak only via horn sounds, which only seems to be understood by Mashin Zabyun. When Mashin Express is spilt into two Kiramai Stones, which are known as Ex' (エクス Ekusu) and 'Press (プレス Puresu). Ex' forms the front of Mashin Express and 'Press forms the back. Mashin Express forms the torso and head of King Express.

Main article: Darkness Megabeast Mecha Smog Jouki

Mashin Jouki (マシン ジョーキー Mashin Jōkī) is an evil Mashin created by the Dark Empire Yodonheim. Originally the Black Kiramai Stone (ブラックキラメイストーン Burakku Kiramei Sutōn) and Royal Train of the Crystalia Kingdom, Jouki was commandeered by the Crystalia traitor Galza, who possibly used his Jamental to upgrade it with a dinosaur mode known as Darkness Megabeast Mecha Smog Jouki (闇の巨獣メカ スモッグジョーキー Yami no Kyojū Meka Sumoggu Jōkī). It forms the limbs of King Express.

Notes

  • King Express is the second white and black Mecha after Kishiryu CosmoRaptor.
  • A picture of King Express's silhouette was leaked on a Kiramager Toy display case at Toys R Us[2].
  • King Express' concept of combining a Good Mecha with an Evil one mirrors the Ride CrosserIcon-crosswiki.png from Kamen Rider DriveIcon-crosswiki.png which combines a Good Rider MachineIcon-crosswiki.png with an Evil oneIcon-crosswiki.png, whereas both Sentai mechs also share similiar color schemes with their respective rider counterparts.
  • While not the first Sentai Robo to use a saw-based weapon, King Express is the first one to use a chainsaw as part of its arsenal.
  • Mashin Express is the first Mashin to split into two Kiramai Stones.
  • The components use the couplings of the ToQ Ressha.
