Targate of the Satellite (衛星のターゲイト Eisei no Tāgeito)is a Thailago Alien (スアイラゴ星人 Suairago Seijin) working for the Universal Annihilation Army Warstar.
Targate specializes in teleportation and is one of Monsu Doreiku's top soldiers, offering his aid in eliminating the Goseigers to take Dereputa's place as Monsu Doreiku's right hand. The Goseigers try to first defeat him as he sinks sections of the city, but he escapes with the team pursuing him. Approaching an area where Moune was, he throws Gosei Yellow into one of his portals with a nearby Hyde running after her in order to save her. While the other Goseigers try to hold him off on their own, Moune and Hyde discover the weakness of Targate's portals through the hole they entered into the dimension with, escaping using Gosei Blue's Presshower to slip through the hole. As the team returns together and take him down. They try to destroy Targate with the Gosei Buster's Gosei Dynamic but he survives, leading the team to summon the Sawshark Header, Kuwaga Header, Hawk Header, Crow Header, and Rhino Header. They then attached them to their Gosei Blasters at him simultaneously which finally takes him down with the Sky-Land-Sea Bullet.
to be added
His main ability is the creation of massive "gate" portals which he can use to sink objects into another dimension, appearing inescapable except through a hidden hole which typically can't be seen due to the blinding light of the room. He can also fire yellow lightning from his eyes strong enough to take down Moune with one hit and durable enough to survive the Gosei Buster finishing attack after which he unleashed a shockwave strong enough to take down all five Goseigers with one hit. His ultimate attack seems to be to charge up his arm with scarlet energy and then unleash a massive energy slash which was strong enough to take down and de-transform Alata, Eri, and Agri with one hit.
