No. 42-kai! New Hero! Secret Meeting!! (新ヒーローにゃ! おコタの密会!! Shin Hīrō nya! O Kota no Mikkai!!) is the forty-second episode of Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger. It features the debut of Don Momotaro prior to his debut in Avataro Sentai Donbrothers as well as the Superbike Enya Rideon and DonZenkaiOh, and the regular Patranger Sentai Gear.


It's been a cold few days everyone, but how are you doing? Speaking of colorful, the heat-sensitive Juran endures the room temperature getting drastically lowered, leading a booing wind to blast through the space! After enduring this dangerous magical power, and hearing about this rumored enchanted kotatsu table, the timing couldn't be more coincidental! Kotatsu World eventually appears and everyone is captivated by its enchanting warmth, leading all of the Zenkaigers to eventually slump into kotatsu tables of their own!

Warm... warm... warm...! Wrapped in an inescapable warm temperature, slowly lulling everyone into a deep sleep...! The lone, heat-sensitive Juran fights on his own against the enemy when Barashitara suddenly appears, changing the tide! "We've got no choice but to hope the special Gear my dad gave us does its thing! So here it goes...!!"
