Icon-goranger.png This article is about a/an fortress in Himitsu Sentai Gorenger.

Variblune (バリブルーン Bariburūn, 1-42)[1], also translated as Varibloom: The original Sentai flying fortress, created by EAGLE and utilized by the Gorengers, usually piloted by Akira Shinmei (Aorenger). It blew up with Iron Man Mask Temujin aboard (but not the Gorengers, fortunately). It was replaced by the Varidorin.

Overview

The Variblune is an early bulldog-like VTOL aircraft, propelled by helicopter blades under the craft. Its "mandibles" can open up and deploy various tools depending on the situation, and can store the Gorenger Machines. The mandibles can be used to retrieve an object as large as a school bus, Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 1: The Crimson Sun! The Invincible Gorengers alternatively, a tube can be dropped to suck people up into the Variblune, primarily used for rescue purposes. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 2: The Blue Earth! The Deforestation Plan of Death

Underneath its belly, it can fire guns to take out the Condoler fleets and can even drop bombs and other types of weapons to take down Black Cross operations.

History

Following the formation of the Gorengers, the Variblune was first launched, piloted by Akira Shinmei and Daita Oiwa, to retrieve a bus full of schoolchildren which Black Cross Army Masked Monster Gold Mask planned to blow up with gunpowder in a warehouse.

During the face-off against Warrior Mask, the Variblune, piloted by Shinmei, arrived to retrieve Professor Kudo and his son Koichi, sucking them up to the ship via its tube. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 2: The Blue Earth! The Deforestation Plan of Death

The Variblune came to pick-up Tsuyoshi and Daita after they stole a new bomb the Black Cross Army had developed. Utilizing their Birdies, Akarenger and Kirenger performed the Gorenger High Jump to fly into the Variblune. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 3: Big Counterattack! A Yellow Whirlwind

The Variblune was used to intercept a hot air balloon containing Jade Mask's Jade Mold spores, with Aorenger disembarking and capturing the balloon, thwarting Jade Mask's plot. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 4: A Crimson Kick! Smash the Great Microbe Plan

When Midorenger was captured by Poison Gas Mask, the other Gorengers came in the Variblune, disembarking on their Gorenger Machines to rescue him. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 5: Green Anger, Immortal Gas-Person

The salaryman's Variblune.

Years later, a salaryman owned a toy replica of the Variblune. Due to his money troubles, he considered selling it but decided it wouldn't be worth it. When the Black Cross Colossus attacked, the toy became the Variblune itself and united with the other revived mecha to fight Black Cross Colossus. Variblune and Sky Ace proceeded to assault the Black Cross Colossus, followed by Battle Fever Robo using its Chinese Bamboo Slice on him. When the Black Cross Colossus summoned several giant villains to oppose them, the Variblune along with Sky Ace attacked Brajira of the Messiah, leaving an opening for him to be defeated by GokaiOh and Gosei Great. After all the giant villains were destroyed, all 35 mecha weakened Black Cross Colossus with a combined attack before the Variblune combined with GokaiOh to become the flying 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.

After using a array of greater powers against a vast fleet of Zangyack ships in Ackdos Gill's invasion, the Variblune was summoned and combined into Goren GokaiOh, and when used in conjunction with the greater powers of Dynaman and Jetman, the fleet was wiped out. However, reinforcements suddenly appeared and Goren GokaiOh was beaten and badly damaged. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 50: The Day of Battle
