Samurai Sentai Shinkenger the Movie: The Fateful Battle (侍戦隊シンケンジャー銀幕版 天下分け目の戦 Samurai Sentai Shinkenjā Ginmakuban Tenkawakeme no Tatakai) is a Japanese superhero film that serves as the Summer Movie adaptation of Samurai Sentai Shinkenger, double-billed with the Kamen Rider DecadeIcon-crosswiki.png film Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Dai-ShockerIcon-crosswiki.png. In the film, the Shinkengers must find a hidden power within the Shiba Clan in order to defeat a new species of Gedoshu.

Footage of the film is used for the Power Rangers Samurai team up movie Clash of the Red Rangers - The Movie.


Trapped in a war with the unrelenting Kusare Gedoshuu forces, the Shinkenger must discover and awaken a power of the first Shinken Red to finally bring the enemy down.


The Shinkengers battle the newly revived Kusare Gedoushu Aburame Manpuku and his army for three days. The wounded and tired Shinkengers nearly lose, had the Kusare Gedoushu not needed to regain energy by soaking in the Sanzu River. As their wounds are treated, Jii reveals they he has found the Secret Disk used by the first Shinken Red to seal Manpuku at the Genryu Temple, which lies in the middle of Kusare Gedoushu territory. Using Ryunosuke and Kotoha's plan to sneak in disguised as members of the Nanashi Company, Takeru gets the Founding Secret Disk only to see that it is actually a cryptic message left by the first Shinken Red Shiba Retsudō of obtaining power when facing it. Unable to decipher the riddle, the Shinkengers lose hope until they overhear children praying and decide to face the Kusare Gedoushu without the Disk. The next day, the Shinkengers confront the Kusare Gedoushu once more. The vassals hold off the Kusare Nanashi Company members as Shinken Red battles Manpuku. Elsewhere, not wanting his quarry to die by another's hand, Juzo attempts to join the fray as Genta intervenes and becomes Shinken Gold to fight Juzo. Losing to Manpuku, Shinken Red realizes the meaning behind Retsudō's message as he uses the Secret Disk to break the seal Retsudō placed on Manpuku's body to restore the Disk's full power. This turns it into the Kyoryu Disk and turns Shinken Red into Hyper Shinken Red, and his Shinkenmaru into the Kyoryumaru. With these newfound powers, Hyper Shinken Red single handily defeats the Kusare Nanashi before slaying Manpuku. Reviving into giant size, Manpuku opens up into his true form which overpowers Tenku-Shinkenoh until the Kyoryumaru transforms into the Kyoryu Origami and bites off the Kusare Gedoshu's snake head before combining with Shinkenoh to form Kyoryu-Shinkenoh to destroy Manpuku once and for all.

Continuity and Placement

  • The only place this movie could be placed in continuity is in between Act 24 and Act 25, because:
    • In the movie, Genta is aware that Juzo is an enemy and not just a food critic. He learns of Juzo's true intentions at the end of Act 23.
    • Act 23 is the start of Dokoku's summer anger tantrums, which carry over into the movie.
    • Act 24 is the first time the Shinkengers see the Nosakamata.
