The Lion, Roars!! (獅子、吼える!! Shishi, Hoeru!!) is the first episode and season premiere of Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger. It is the first episode of Gaoranger's opening arc.


A veterinarian adept at communicating with the hearts of animals is chosen by Gao Lion to lead the team of Gaorangers; warriors selected by their respective power animals to defend the earth from the villainous Orgs.


At a restaurant, the Turbine Org attacked, opposing him are the Gaorangers. As the Rangers gain the upper hand, the Org was saved by the Plugma Org. As the Orgs escape, it is decided that a fifth member is needed. Meanwhile, an elephant rampages through a festival, but was calmed down by veterinarian Kakeru Shishi. Unbeknownst to him, he is being scouted by Tetomu to become the final member of the team.

The next morning, he is kidnapped by the Gaorangers, and taken to the Animarium, a floating island where the Power Animals reside. Kakeru is amazed by the giant animals, and meets with GaoLion. GaoLion provides him his Gao Jewel, before teleporting to Gao's Rock, the home base of the Gaorangers. Tetomu explains the Gaorangers to Kakeru, who is confused. Tetom gives him his G-Phone, as they move out to face Turbine Org and Plugma Org.

The two Baron Orgs are causing havoc at a dam, intending to destroy it and flood the town. As Kakeru hears the cries of help, he resolves to fight the Orgs as GaoRed. They all morph into Gaorangers, and fight the two Orgs. They combine their weapons into the Evil-Crushing Hundred-Beast Sword, and Plugma Org was destroyed. As Turbine Org stumbles away, he was met with Duke Orgs Yabaiba and TsueTsue. When the Gaorangers found Turbine Org, he has grown giant. It is then their respective Gao Jewels started to glow, and they are instructed to insert them into their Beast King Swords. As they do so, the Power Animals come down from Animarium and fought Turbine Org. The Org was easily destroyed by the combined powers of the Power Animals.
