"Bowzock and Signalman have agreed to work together. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!"
―Reckless Dash Emperor Exhaus' first words after the Bowzock and Signalman agreed to team-up against the Carrangers.[src]

"I am the one who turned Signalman evil and sent him to Earsh! I am the puppet master of evil, bending the universe to my whim! I am the puppet master of all evil, bending the universe to my whim! Biker Lord Exhaus! Hear me, Space Reckless Driving Tribe Bowzock... you must regain your evil confidence."
―Exhaus revealing himself to the Bowzock when they were feeling down about themselves as many newspapers were mocking and deriding them.[src]

"Good work, Bowzock. Beginning today, the Baribarian will be an intergalactic space dump. With the Carranger gone, Bowzock no longer serves any purpose for me! Indeed. And things which lack purpose should be tossed out. You are garbage. I will use this garbage for another purpose, you are to be blasted at Earsh, where the burning energy of the flames will cause it to burst like a rocket."
―Exhaus when he betrayed the Bowzock after Zelmoda asked for confirmation that they were now no longer needed.[src]

"The Baribarian...!"
―Exhaus reacting to the Baribarian coming right at him and his final words before his supposed death.[src]

"Did you really think Reckless Dash Emperor Exhaus would fall so easily? FOOLS! I have gathered the evil power sown throughput the cosmos to revive as Exhaus Super Strong!"
―Exhaus revealing his survival and transformation into Exhaus Super Strong.[src]

"My stomach! My stomach hurrrrrrts! How dare you... My evil intergalactic highway plan is not yet completed... I cannot die! DIE!"
―Exhaus after Gynamo forcibly shrunk him.[src]

"My evil intergalactic highway plan...!"
―Reckless Dash Emperor Exhaus' final words before his death.[src]

Reckless Dash Emperor Exhaus (暴走皇帝エグゾス Bōsōgōtei Eguzosu, 35-48) was the true main antagonist of Gekisou Sentai Carranger and the secret benefactor of the Space Bosozoku Bowzock. Exhaus' ultimate plan was to build a giant highway across the Milky Way Galaxy and to destroy Earth because it was in the way of the construction.

History

Past

Exhaus' origins are unknown but he was the reason why the Bowzock began destroying planets in the first place since he disguised himself as "Suzogue" (Exhaus backwards in Japanese), a fortune-teller who sends Gynamo a post-card about the good luck he and his squadron would have by destroying planets. With this belief, the Bowzock begin destroying planets as they rampage throughout the universe, clearing away space for Exhaus' eventual super-highway. Exhaus appeared as a massive being in space, so large that he can hold the Bowzock's entire orb-like satellite in the palm of his hand. Though he initially did not tell the Bowzock of the plan (merely assisting them due to their own desires to blow up Earth), he did so eventually to gain their support, telling them that with more roads, they would possess more area to run amuck.

Carranger

Exhaus initially showed influence indirectly in-story by covering Planet Police in a noxious gas which warps Signalman's mind and makes his son, Sigtarou, sick. Exhaus' scheme is both to have Signalman turn against the Carrangers whilst likewise giving the Bowzock a new ally to assist in the Earth's destruction.

After Signalman is saved by the Carranger and Dappu, he emerges to the Bowzock personally and begins to give them special weaponry to take the heroes down, including several giant robots to use on the Earth's protectors. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 36: The Suspicious Exhaust Purging Operation

During the Carrangers and Ohrangers' battle against Bara Mobile and SS Sutatanzo, Exhaus sends down Norishiron Extra to help them after selecting it from a magazine only for them all to be destroyed. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Gekisou Sentai Carranger vs. Ohranger

Figuring out that the power of a Hazardian gives the Carranger their Carmagic power, Exhaus fully reveals his highway project to the Bowzock to get them on his side in kidnapping Dappu to drain him of the power using a machine that transforms it into "Akumagic Power" (an evil version of Carmagic). Though nearly succeeding, Dappu and the Carranger ultimately work together to have the alien overload the mechs with Carmagic, malfunctioning them and ultimately taking them out.

When Gynamo is depressed over not having Beauty Zonnette fall for him, Zelmoda consults Exhaus who tells him to make her love him. The resulting scheme with EE Musubinofu fails however and results in Zonnette leaving the Bowzock for good. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 45: The Starting Point of True Love

Upon discovering a once-in-a-million years phenomenon where the constellations protecting the five car constellations that provide the Carmagic to the Carranger are weakened, Exhaus manipulates the Carranger and Bowzock into battle while he steals the five constellations, taking away the Carranger's power and allowing them to easily be defeated by the gang. However, whilst they destroy the Pegasus Garage with bombs, he fills the Baribarian with rubbish. When they return, he ultimately betrays the Bowzock with the Carranger finally done for; seeing them as merely garbage of the universe with no further use and sending them and their Baribarian satellite to Earth to blow both up at the same time which is ultimately stopped by Sirender. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 47: Hit and Break!? The Death-Defying Space Drive}}

After the Bowzock and Carranger finally make peace by way of Beauty Zonnette, the Carrangers personally smash the Baribarian into Exhaus in order to seemingly stop him and take back the car constellations and, likewise, their Carmagic. Unfortunately, Exhaus survives by absorbing the evil energies of the entire universe into his body to assume a fighting form, Exhaus Super-Strong (エグゾス・スーパーストロング Eguzosu Sūpā Sutorongu). In this form, he seems unstoppable as he shrugs off both the Victory Twister of VRV Robo and it's self destruct and even RV Robo's special sword attack is useless. After he destroys it however, he is finally stopped by being fed stale imo-youkan by Gynamo which causes him to weaken and shrink to human size where he reverts back to his regular form. Exhaus claims that he can't be killed before he fulfills his goal but is weakened by the Auto Blasters. With Exhaus crippled, the Carrangers use the Crew Magic attack (where the whole team turn into their RV Vehicles and tear through the enemy) to destroy Exhaus body. His soul then flies up into vast outer space where he turns into dust alongside his highway, bringing the threat posed by the Bowzock to an end once and for all.

Personality

Exhaus was traitorous, ruthless, sadistic, cruel, and insane by nature. Desiring power, he was willing to do whatever it takes to get it up to and including betraying his greatest allies as a means to an end. Exhaus was also arrogant and egomaniacal, considering others to be garbage of the universe whilst also possessing a god complex and viewing himself as superior than everyone else.
