|This article is about a/an army of grunts in Denji Sentai Megaranger.|
Soldiers Kunekune (兵士クネクネ, Heishi Kunekune, Soldiers Wriggling): The Nezire grunts. Have twisted faces and wield twisted swords armed with a submachine gun in the blade. Briefly invaded earth and took the form of various humans. They were revealed to be led by their own Boss Kunekune who later combined with all the other Kunekune to become a giant monster, King Kunekune. When Boss Kunekune was destroyed by the Galaxy Mega with the Booster Rifle, the King Kunekune disassembled and was destroyed as well. The Kunekunes survived, but have not been seen since the finale after the Grand Neziros exploded.
Boss Kunekune (ボスクネクネ, Bosu Kunekune) (14): Leader of the Kunekune armies. Taken down by MegaRed's new Drill Sniper Custom before combining with the Soldiers Kunekunes to become King Kunekune. Killed by Galaxy Mega with the Booster Rifle.
King Kunekune (キングクネクネ, Kingu Kunekune) (14): Giant monster formed by an army of Kunekune piling together, with Boss Kunekune as its heart. Could close wounds by more Kunekune simply swarming over the gaps. Was disassembled by Galaxy Mega with the Booster Rifle.
Several Soldiers Kunekune were part of an army of past enemy grunts that were fought by the Gokaigers in Los Dark's ghost dimension which housed the 1500 spirits of the villains defeated by the Super Sentai. After losing some of their number in an initial skirmish, the remaining members from each grunt group merged to form the Combined Combatant. Though the stronger opponent, the Combined Combatant proved to be unstable due to internal conflicting among the grunts composing him over who got to finish the pirates off. Taking advantage, the Gokaigers used the Battle Fever J Ranger Keys to destroy the Combined Combatant with the Penta Force cannon.
