|This article is about a/an monster in Tensou Sentai Goseiger.|
Zeibu of the Mummy (ミイラのゼイ腐（ブ） Mīra no Zeibu) is a member of the Earth Condemnation Group Yuumajuu.
Zeibu is released by Makuin to take advantage of the modern media technologies of humanity; taking over a TV station, he uses his bandages to brainwash a popular female broadcaster and uses her to release brainwashing bandages to anyone watching her show, further by taking over all the channels to maximize output. While securing himself within the studio, the Goseiger use the Landick Brothers to burrow themselves into the studio and to stop him and the Yuumajuu superiors from running their broadcast. Once outside, Alata convinces Gosei Knight that he is the real problem that needs to be dealt with instead of merely human society, forcing the rebellious Headder to fight and crush Zeibu, using his Gosei abilities to weaken him and destroy him with Knightick Dynamic.
After Buredoran revives Zeibu, Alata convinces Gosei Knight to watch them fight it to prove their own abilities. Summoning Gosei Great, they use Another Seaick Gosei Great and Another Landick Gosei Great to weaken Zeibu's power before finishing him off with Hyper Gosei Great.
to be added
Zeibu's main ability is the release of special "bandages" which can brainwash whoever is struck by them into being his slaves. While he can emit the bandages on his own, their true purpose is to be distributed to anyone who watches or witnesses those wearing them, thus passing them off through visual contact and rapidly multiplying victims under his will. He also possesses Cursed Sand and a Cursed Whip, while can create bandages that possess special messages which forces a rule to whatever is struck by it.
