Zox Goldtsuiker (ゾックス・ゴールドツイカー Zokkusu Gōrudotsuikā) is Twokaizer (ツーカイザー Tsūkaizā), the Sixth Ranger and the Gold Ranger of the Zenkaigers.

Character History

Zox comes from Kaizokutopia, a world of Pirates. Him and his siblings Flint, Ricky and Cutanner are World Pirates (界賊 Kaizoku), sailing from parallel world to another. He and his siblings are also fans of the Gokaigers, to the extent that as Twokaizer, he looks like Gokai Red but golden.

During Zenkaizer and Stacaesar's second fight, a mysterious individual descended from a giant half yellow and half blue ship that suddenly showed up in the sky, introducing himself as Zox Goldtsuiker. After a song and dance routine, he shocked Kaito when he held up the Twokaizer Sentai Gear, and with it, transformed into the showy Twokaizer. He then fought Stacaesar for the Gears he had, but was disappointed when they weren't Sentai Gears nor even Tojiru Gears, and destroyed the Dark Gears Stacey dropped. After Stacey left to recuperate, he asked the Zenkaigers who they were, much to their exasperation. Tvicon.png TV STORY-No. 8-kai! Door to Door from Another World?!


Personality

Zox is a very hedonistic, enthusiastic and sharp-witted showy pirate. As exhibited by him having a grandiose song, dance and transformation routine all ready to go when he made his golden debut, He is shown to be quite voguish as his Ranger form, and his fighting is very stylish. In contrast of his flashy appearance his motives are hidden behind a veil of secrecy as he seeks the Sentai Gears for a currently unknown reason.

Despite having some negative traits, Zox cares deeply for his family and will punish those who dare to hurt them.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • Zox Goldtsuiker is portrayed by Atsuki Mashiko (増子 敦貴 Mashiko Atsuki). As Twokaizer, his suit actor is Shigeki Ito (伊藤 茂騎 Itō Shigeki),[2] who portrayed Kiramai Red in the previous series. Twokaizer marks Ito's return to the sixth ranger role since Patren/Lupin X, one of which was coincidentally a gold ranger.
  • Mashiko had previously portrayed GlasyaIcon-crosswiki.png/Kamen Rider Proto-Baron in Kamen Rider Zangetsu Stage -Gaim Gaiden-Icon-crosswiki.png. Meta-coincidentally, the real Baron, portrayed by Yutaka KobayashiIcon-crosswiki.png had previously auditioned for GokaiRed, whom Twokaizer is based off of.

Design

  • Twokaizer's suit is heavily inspired by the Gokaigers, with ridges going all the way down his pants. His helmet visor is a 1:1 recreation of Gokai Red's. His silhouette evokes Kaizoku Gattai GokaiOh with his helmet being very similar to GokaiOh's, as well as his shoulder armor extending past his shoulders. His shoulder armor also uses the zigzag pattern on the Zenkaiger's logo.
  • Twokaizer's Ohran form recalls various elements of Ohranger including Riki's royal and KingRanger suits, as well as Gunmazin's loincloth and color. On his loincloth are the symbols of the five Ohrangers in order of the Ohranger Robo formation. Twokaizer's helmet also now has the OhRed logo on it, with the number now being 19 instead of 35.
  • Twokaizer's Shinken form recalls the Hyper Shinken form’s red coat of the Shinkengers, with ShinkenRed's symbol on his chest as well as the Shinkenger logo on either side. Twokaizer's helmet also now has a fire kanji on the helmet, along with the number now being 33 instead of 35.

Etymology

Goldtsuiker's name in English as shown on TV-Asahi's official site.

An alternate spelling of Goldtsuiker, "Gorldtsuikar", as shown in TV-Kun.

  • Zox is an amalgamation of "Thief" ( Zoku) and "Six" (シックス Shikkusu). While Goldtsuiker is a combination and pun on "Gold" (ゴールド Gōrudo) and "Additional" (追加 Tsuika).
  • Twokaizer's name is derived from the fact that he is a Zenkaiger that is based on the Gokaigers (the show is full of puns with "Kai"). Twokai also pun on the "Exciting" (痛快 Tsūkai) and "Messenger"/"User" (使い Tsukai) (Gokaigers are users of past Sentai powers, the same with the Zenkaigers).
  • Goldtsuiker is alternatively shown to be spelled as Gorldtsuikar, which adds another pun on "World" (ワールド Wārudo).

Notes

  • Upon Twokaizer's first reveal in magazines and debut in Episode 8, many fans jokingly and mockingly referred to his suit's heavy inspiration to that of the Gokaigers', calling him Gokai Gold (ゴーカイゴールド Gōkai Gōrudo), which began trending on Twitter. [3]
  • Twokaizer is the first anniversary series Sixth Ranger to be a Gold Ranger. With the exception of Zyuoh TheWorld (who was mainly a Black Ranger with additional Gold and Silver modes), nearly all past anniversary Sixth Rangers were mainly Silver Rangers.
  • Twokaizer's flashy fighting style in his default form, which is based off of the Gokaigers, is suggestive of their pre-battle catchphrase "Let's make this showy!"
  • His catchphrase "Let's make this thrilling!" (痛快に行くぜ! Tsūkai ni iku ze!) is a play on words from Captain Marvelous's famous catchphrase "Let's make this extremely showy!" ((ド)派手に行くぜ! (Do)Hade ni iku ze!).
  • Zox is tied with Kinji Takigawa/StarNinger and Shou Ronpo/Ryu Commander for earliest debut of a Sixth Ranger in Super Sentai.
    • Coincidently, both Kinji and Zox’s teams have the same color scheme.
    • He is also the Reiwa Era's first Sixth Ranger to have the earliest appearance.
  • He is the first Gold Ranger in the Reiwa era (though there is Ryusoul Gold and Kiramai Gold, the first one belong to a Heisei series and the latter isn't an actual Ranger).
  • Twokaizer is the second Ranger to sport a loincloth in one of his forms after Zenkai Magine.
  • Twokaizer is the first Zenkaiger to bear the logo of the team they are in reference to on their suit.
  • When Twokaiser uses his finisher in Shinken form, the Geardalinger briefly projects an image of the Rekka Daizantou Sword Mode engulfed in flames.
