"Appear! Daizyuzin!
Invoke, 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.


Eye lasers from Mammoth Shield

The finishing move: Super Legend Thunder Slash

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.

Weapons and Powers


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 fight Burai. Geki refused and Daizyuzin was forced to attack 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.

After the destruction of Dora Talos and the death of Kai in the finale, Daizyuzin trapped Bandora and her lackeys in a golden vase and banished them back into the depths of space.

Daizyuzin would later reappear to lend a hand in the battle against Emperor Daidas, lending his power to energize GaoKing in Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai.

Guardian Beasts

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.

Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus

"I summon the Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus!"
"TyrannoRanger! Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus! Unite!"

The first Guardian Beast to be awakened, the Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus (守護獣 ティラノザウルス Shugojū Tiranozaurusu) is Geki's Guardian Beast and the god of the Yamato tribe. Bigger and stronger than the other primary Guardian Beasts, sometimes acting alone in combat, when he could use his tail and jaws as weapons. He had the ability to fire energy blasts from his eyes. He is able to vaporize giant Dora Monsters with his Tyranno Sonic (ティラノソニック Tirano Sonikku), a blast of Sonic Energy fired from his mouth and can stand on his tail to deliver jump kicks to its enemy. During the battle with Dora Sphinx in episode 5, rather than let Geki pilot him, Tyrannosaurus instead sent Geki into the future where he was confronted with the barren wasteland Bandora planned to turn the Earth into unless the Zyurangers learned to make their hearts as one. When Tyrannosaurus is called upon, he comes from under the earth. Forms the head and body of Both DinoTanker and Daizyuzin.

When assuming the form of Daizyuzin, DinoTanker's cannons fold in to switch out with the hands (DinoTanker's cannons detatch for this stage and relocate onto the back), DinoTanker rises up into a humanoid shape as Triceratops and Saber Tiger become the legs, Pteranodon detaches from the back and flies around to the front, Tyrannosaurus' face folds into his chest to reveal Daizyuzin's head before Pteranodon docks onto the front to form the chest, and finally a horn on either side of Daizyujin's head folds out from behind.

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. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle

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.

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


Guardian Beasts and Dino Tanker concept art

Daizyuzin concept art

  • According to an article by PLEX's Tsuyoshi Nonaka, it was inspired by GoLion/Voltron. This is most evident in the SaberTiger design wherein the head of the Sabertooth Tiger is the foot of Daizyuzin, the legs fold sideways and the tail becomes Daizyuzin's kneecap. The tank formation was inspired by Daitetsujin 17.
  • 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.
  • Like some other mechs in earlier shows, 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.
  • During the DinoTanker transformation into Daizyuzin, the Zyurangers are seen from the back in the wrong order. PteraRanger and TigerRanger are the wrong way around, as well as MammothRanger and TriceraRanger sitting behind when they should be in front.
  • 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:
  • All the Guardian Beasts each have their first letter either on their sides or a center position.
  • Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus' roar is a modified version of 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.
