- "Appear! Daizyuzin!
Daizyuzin (大獣神 Daijūjin, Great Beast God) is the combined form of the five primary guardian beasts, who first combine into the Beast Battle Tank DinoTanker and then transform further into Daizyuzin. Rather than a mere robot, Daizyuzin is actually a physical incarnation of the Ruling God of the five tribes. As such he has his own will and occasionally gives challenges or suggests the right actions for the Zyurangers to help on their quest to be real heroes.

In battle, Daizyuzin wields the Mammoth Shield (マンモスシールド Manmosu Shīrudo), which can fire energy beams from its eyes and the Dinosaur Sword God Horn (恐竜剣ゴッドホーン Kyōryū Ken Goddo Hōn), which he uses in his Super Legend Thunder Slash (超伝説雷光斬り Chō Densetsu Raikō Giri) finisher - this attack has three variations:
- a diagonal bottom-to-top slash
- a vertical slash from the bottom up
- a horizontal left-to-right slash
He can also fire laser beams from his eyes, lightning from his crown or energy blasts from the cannons on his back.
Appearances: Zyuranger episodes 6, 7, 9-12, 14, 15, 17, 18, 20, 22, 25, 28-32, 34-39, 41-45, 47-50, Super Sentai World, Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle, Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger vs. Go-Busters: Dinosaur Great Battle! Farewell, Eternal Friends.
First appearing in episode 6, Daizyuzin was shown to Geki during a vision of a post-apocalyptic future that Bandora would bring about if she were victorious. Under the instruction of Barza, Geki sought out the Dinocrystals (the key to combining the Guardian Beasts into Daizayujin) and after freeing his comrades from the trees Dora Sphinx had trapped them in along with several children, the five Zyurangers combined the guardian beasts into Daizyuzin to defeat both Dora Sphinx and Grifforzer before the children Dora Sphinx had imprisoned could be cut down by a construction crew.
When Burai was revived and given the Sword of Hellfriede, Daizyuzin told Geki to kill Burai. Geki refused and Daizyuzin was forced to punish him for letting his personal feelings override his duty as a Zyuranger. All was soon resolved when Geki finally managed to reach Burai's heart and Burai's tears destroyed the sword whereupon Daizyuzin officially announced that Burai would be the sixth Zyuranger. Prior to Burai's redemption, Bandora had learned of a prophecy of Daizyuzin's defeat and Grifforzer, Lamie Scorpion, and Burai worked together to hurl him into a lava pit as a solar eclipse had cut off Daizyuzin's power. Fortunately, the prophecy had only foreseen Daizyuzin's defeat rather than his death and after using the energy of the lava to re-energize, Daizyuzin returned in time to stop Dragon Ceasar from destroying the city while under Burai's control.
Despite being a god, Daizyuzin was far from invincible as it was revealed during the battle with Satan Franke that in the initial battle with Dai-Satan, Daizyuzin's true form had been split into three lesser aspects (Daizyuzin, Dragon Caesar, and King Brachion). After the Zyurangers performed a ceremony at an ancient alter where they "gave voice to their mission" Daizyuzin's full power was restored, enabling him to fight the new and more powerful Dokita-Dora Monsters on an equal level as well as to combine with Dragon Ceasar and King Brachion to form Zyutei Daizyujin and then Ultimate Daizyuzin.
The five core Guardian Beasts are the patriarchal gods of the individual tribes. Like Daizyuzin, they are physical incarnations rather than mere robots and have various innate sacred powers.

Super Sentai World
Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai
Years later, Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus appeared as part of an army of robots, animals, jets, machines and vehicles belonging to the first 25 red heroes. As anticipated by Soukichi Banba (Big One), they were led by Akira Shinmei (AoRenger) and Chief Counsellor Naoyuki Miura to help fight Lost Highness Rakushaasa.
When GokaiOh and Gosei Great faced the Black Cross Colossus, the mecha of the first 33 Super Sentai, including Daizyuzin which possibly manifested from a toy version like DaiDenzin and the Variblune, appeared to back them up. When the Black Cross Colossus summoned several giant villains to oppose them, Daizyuzin fought alongside AbarenOh and Galaxy Mega to destroy Danger Cabinet-Director Chirakasonne. After all the giant villains were destroyed, all 35 mecha weakened Black Cross Colossus with a combined attack before GokaiOh combined with the Variblune to become Goren GokaiOh which destroyed the Black Cross Colossus with the Gokai Hurricane: Cassiopeia finisher. With the battle won, the 33 past Super Sentai mecha vanished.
Super Hero Taisen Z
Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus was part of a group of Tyrannosaurus Mecha manifestations which appeared around the Gabutyra head of Kyoryuzin as its Miracle Combination prepared the Zyuden Brave Strike End Rider Kick attack which destroyed Demon King Psycho.
Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus which was summoned by TyrannoRanger Zyudenchi forms Daizyuzin.
Zyuohger vs. Ninninger
Representing Zyuranger, Zyutei Daizyuzin appeared among manifestations of the first 38 Super Sentai's mecha that granted Wild Tousai Shuriken King the power to perform the Zyuoh Ninnin Super Sentai Burst which destroyed the titanic Gillmarda.
- Daizyuzjin: to be added
Through the powers of the Phantom Ranger Keys, the Gokaigers can re-create and summon the Greater Power of any Super Sentai team in existence. In Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters vs. Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: The Movie, the Phantom Ranger Keys reproduced the greater power of the Go-Busters, which allowed their respective mechas to transform to other previous Super Sentai mechas through Megazord keys. Gai used his Megazord key to transform GoZyuJin into Daizyuzin.
- Guardian Beasts ZyuMammoth, SaberTiger, and Triceratops could combine with Dragon Caesar to form Gouryuzin.
- Daizyuzin could combine with Dragon Caesar to form Zyutei Daizyuzin.
- Daizyuzin and Dragon Caesar can combine with King Brachion to form Ultimate Daizyuzin.
Video Game appearances
Zyuranger video game
DaiZyuzin appears in the Zyuranger video game. He appears in a Pong-style minigame with Dragon Caesar. In the main game, each of the five stages contains ten scattered coins which will replenish the player's life gauge completely when fully collected, as well as display a still of the character's respective Guardian Beast and its specifications
- Daizyuzin was the first Sentai Mecha to use a motif of prehistoric animals and was also the first to be comprised entirely of mechanized animals rather than vehicles. Liveman's LiveRobo included the mechanized Land Lion, however the other components - Jet Falcon and Aqua Dolphin - were both vehicles designed with animal motifs.
- Whenever Daizyuzin had to exhibit dexterity, the costume's large fists would be removed and replaced with simple silver gloves. Depending on the scene, only one or both of the gloves may have been swapped out at any given time.
- Daizyuzin and Guardian Beasts' cockpits are recycled versions from Jet Icarus' cockpit.
- The original Jet Icarus' cockpit was used as the space shuttle's cockpit from the first episode of the show.
- Daizyuzin appears in three Sentai team-up events in a row:
- Gokaiger VS. Goseiger: A manifestation of Daizyuzin appears in Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle.
- Go-Busters VS. Gokaiger: GoZyuJin Gokai Changes into Daizyuzin in Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters vs. Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: The Movie.
- Kyoryuger VS. Go-Busters: Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus which was summoned by the Zyuranger Zyudenchi forms Daizyuzin in Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger vs. Go-Busters: Dinosaur Great Battle! Farewell, Eternal Friends.
- Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus' roar is a modified version of the Godzilla kaiju Rodan's roar.
- The Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus' design is based on an outdated concept of what an actual Tyrannosaurus rex may have looked like. More recent scientific-finds have revealed the Tyrannosaurus rex's body had a more forward-leaning posture rather than an upright-posture. Subsequent Sentai mecha based on the Tyrannosaurus Rex have been designed using this new scientifically-accurate design, although return-appearances by the Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus itself retain the original outdated structure.
