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.
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 fires energy boomerangs in the likeness of its chestplate 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. The combination was retired following the addition of Mashin Zabyun, whose presence eliminates the need for Mashin Jouki. Galza later brought the combination back into battle by brainwashing Mashin Express with his Jamental powers, turning King Express into Jaaku King Express (邪悪キングエクスプレス Jaaku Kingu Ekusupuresu, lit. "Evil King Express"), an asset for the Yodonheim empire. Galza's Jamental energy also supercharges the mecha's attacks, allowing it to best Grateful Phoenix in combat. Jaaku King Express is visually identical to the default version, but with red visor eyes very similar to the ones on the helmet of Dark Kiramai Silver. The finisher for this version is known as the Burn Dead End (バーンデッドエンド Bān Deddo Endo), where the mecha charges up the Jouki Jaws with dark energy and fires it in a V-shape similar to its chestplate. This attack was powerful enough to critically damage GigantDriller, one of the most powerful mecha in the Kiramagers' arsenal.
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 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.
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.

Mashin Express Jouki
Mashin Express Jouki (マシンエクスプレスジョーキー Mashin Ekusupuresu Jōkī) is the combined form taken when Mashin Express latches onto Mashin Jouki in order to combine into King Express.

Kiramaizin Express (キラメイジンエクスプレス Kirameijin Ekusupuresu) is formed when Kiramaizin rides on Mashin Express. Its finisher is the Kiramaizin Express Break (キラメイジンエクスプレスブレーク Kirameijin Ekusupuresu Burēku), where Kiramaizin charges the Jetter Sword and executes a slash at high speed to destroy the Jamen Beast.
Appearances: Kiramager Episodes 11
Mashin Gattai King Express Zabyun
Mashin Gattai King Express Zabyun (魔進合体キングエクスプレスザビューン Mashin Gattai Kingu Ekusupuresu Zabyūn) is the second, true version of King Express. This version retains and enhances the original's extreme speed, and negates the need for Mashin Jouki when the mecha is required. This combination replaces the original King Express formation, as Zabyun's presence and enhancements make the requirement for Mashin Jouki moot.
Mashin Express Zabyun
Mashin Express Zabyun (マシンエクスプレスザビューン Mashin Ekusupuresu Zabyūn) is the combined form taken when Mashin Express latches onto Mashin Zabyun in order to combine into King Express Zabyun.

- 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.
- King Express' concept of combining a Good Mecha with an Evil one and the fact that it can be used by both sides, mirrors the Ride Crosser from Kamen Rider Drive which combines a Good Rider Machine with an Evil one, whereas both Sentai mechs also share similiar color schemes with their respective rider counterparts.
- The backstory of how the Evil Mashin was originally on the side of good, and was modified after the enemy acquired it furthers the parallel.
- The nature of it being used by both sides in giant battles also parallels FireKaiser from Mahou Sentai Magiranger.
- The nature of it being a forced combination also brings to mind KillerOh from Bakuryu Sentai Abaranger and SpinoDaiOh from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger.
