This article is about a/an an army of footsoldiers in Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger.

The Zorima (ゾーリ魔 Zōrima, lit. "Paramecium Demons") are the Foot soldiers that serve the Deboth Army and the Neo Deboth Army, created from Deboth cells that are littered around the world. They tend to wiggle around and make a 'nuru' sound. The normal variety of Zorima are armed with energy guns that have razor blades to cut to fight the Kyoryugers.

But in some cases, the Zorima can clump themselves together and fuse into monstrous creatures called Giant Zorima (巨大ゾーリ魔 Kyodai Zōrima) which combat the Zyudenryu.

Neo Deboth Army

The Zorima of the Neo Deboth Army first appeared on Earth led by Homuras, who ordered them to indiscriminately attack humans so as to draw out the Power of the Dragon King. They were first fought by Hyeonjun Jeon and Sechang Kim but eventually beat down the soon-to-be heroes. However, they were then opposed by Juyong Kwon and his Minityra. Recognizing Juyong as Daigo's second coming, Torin gave him the GabuGaburivolver and Dinocell, enabling him to become Brave Kyoryu Red and quickly defeating the Zorima.

A final batch of Zorima were dispatched by Juhyeok when he arrived at Neo Deboth's ship to save Juyong from Deizarus. Any that remained would have perished when the Dino Force Brave destroyed the enlarged Deizarus and his ship with it. King 12: Eternal! Power Rangers Dino Force Brave

Video game appearances

Super Sentai Battle: Dice-O

As the then-incumbent foot soldier army, the Zorima were added to the arcade game Super Sentai Battle: Dice-O where, as on TV, their job is to take the punishment dished out by the Super Sentai teams.

Super Sentai Battle Base

The Zorima are among the various foot soldier forces which appear in the mobile game Super Sentai Battle Base.

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

The Zorima are voiced by Yuuki Anai (穴井 勇輝 Anai Yūki)[1] and Kazuki Komine (小峰 一己 Komine Kazuki).[1] They are portrayed by various unidentified suit actors.

In Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger: Gaburincho of Music, the dancing Zorima were portrayed by Hiroko Shiratori (白鳥紘子 Shiratori Hiroko), Akihiro Ariga (有我彰広 Ariga Akihiro), Kazuya Omino (小美濃一彌 Omino Kazuya), Hayato Oomori (大森 隼 Ōmori Hayato), Reoma Fukuno (福野麗生馬 Fukuno Reoma), Masaki Takane (高根正樹 Takane Masaki), Atsushi Yamauchi (山内惇史 Yamauchi Atsushi), Takahiro Masutani (桝谷昴洸 Masutani Takahiro) and Kazuki Hamano (濵野和起 Hamano Kazuki).

Conception

The Zorima were designed by character designer K-SuKe, who worked on the majority of the Deboth Army for Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger.

Etymology

  • The Zorima are named after the Paramecium (ゾウリムシ/草履虫 Zōrimushi).

Notes

  • The Giant Zorima slightly resemble Dark Species Deboth's Prehistoric form, due to being derived from Deboth Cells.
  • The Zorima's ability to turn into a giant monster might be based on the soldiers Kunekune from Denji Sentai Megaranger when they displayed this ability in episode 14 to become a King Kunekune. Both even did it the same way by clumping each other together.
  • The Sengoku Zorima's weapons are reused weapons of the Nanashi Company from Samurai Sentai Shinkenger
  • Just like the Barmia Soldiers from Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger, a previous dinosaur-themed Super Sentai season, they are themed after a single-celled lifeform like the paramecium which they are named after.
  • The Zorima, along with the Combatant Kuros, are special cases with foot soldiers as the ToQger's weapons had no effect on them, and vice-versa. This is strange as Super Sentai have fought foot soldiers that weren't from their season with their main weapons and have had an effect on them.
