Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger vs. Go-Busters: The Great Dinosaur Battle! Farewell, Our Eternal Friends (獣電戦隊キョウリュウジャーＶＳゴーバスターズ 恐竜大決戦！ さらば永遠の友よ,Jūden Sentai Kyōryūjā tai Gōbasutāzu: Kyōryū Daisakusen! Saraba Eien no Tomo yo) is a Japanese superhero crossover film between Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger and Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, and the 19th installment of the VS series of films. The film features supporting from the protagonists of Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger and Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger, and the cameo debut of Ressha Sentai ToQger. The film premiered on January 18th, 2014, and was released on DVD/Blu-Ray on March 19, 2014.
Voldos uses the feelings of revenge from enemies defeated by heroes who use the power of dinosaurs, creating Neo-Grifforzer and Neo-Geildon, clones of past enemies as well as Enter and Escape, enemies of the Go-Busters. Villains spanning generations are united into a single evil force.
The Kyoryugers, who are fighting an unseen evil, meet with the Go-Busters, and the "Greatest Trap ever seen on Earth" is sprung. What rises up against the true dinosaurs and the death of your best friends? Now, the Kyoryugers must try and use the "True Brave".
Alerted by Torin of an evil presence above the city, the Kyoryugers see a strange energy from the sky before a mysterious green-eyed Tyrannosaurus briefly appears with a warning that Daigo's best friend might die. The Kyoryugers are then ambushed by a group of Zorima, Golem Soldiers, and Barmia Soldiers before an armored figure named Neo-Geildon arrives with a figure he has just kidnapped. Revealed to be Ryoga Hakua of the Bakuryū Sentai Abaranger team, he transforms and suddenly attacks the Kyoryugers. Luckily, the Go-Busters arrive and hold off Aba Red before Tyranno Ranger of the Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger team turns the tide alongside his captor Neo-Grifforzer. After they and their teams retreat, Hiromu thanks Daigo for helping him and Gokai Red before they are ambushed by Enter. Enter states that he and Escape have been resurrected as part of a Vaglass restoration program that has been activated in response to the evil force that Neo-Grifforzer and Neo-Geildon serve: Voldos, a being created from the combined malice of Dai Satan and Dezumozorlya that is targeting the dinosaur-themed Super Sentai teams to have their Dino Hope extracted and converted into Wicked Life Energy to complete his evolution.
With the Go-Busters and Beet J. Stag holding off the enemies, the Kyoryugers arrive at the site too late to save Ryouga and Geki in what is revealed to be a trap set for them, with Gabutyra defeated by Neo-Grifforzar and infused by Voldos's power. By the time the Go-Busters find them, the Kyoryugers have had their Dino Hope removed brainwashing them into serving Voldos. The six are sent back in time to kill the dinosaurs. Upon encountering the dinosaurs, the Kyoryugers almost kill them when the green eyed Tyrannosaurus protecting them from an eruption breaks the spell as Daigo recognizes the dinosaur as Gabutyra in his original state. The shock of realizing the Tyrannosaurus is Gabutyra snaps the Kyoryuger's back to normal. The Gabutyra of the past proceeds to explain to them the warning he told Daigo related to his future self who is dying from Voldos's influence and that only Daigo can save him with the power of Dino Hope. Elsewhere, with help from the Abarangers' Yukito Sanjyo using a specially made Super Sentai Zyudenchi, Yayoi creates a time portal to bring the Kyoryugers back to the present time.
Meanwhile, the Go-Busters and Kyoryu Silver mount a rescue mission to save Ryouga and Geki when they are kept back by the Deboth Knights and Luckyuro while Neo-Grifforzer and Neo-Geildon take their captives with them. However, the Kyoryugers arrive and fight a losing battle against the grunts while Ryouga and Geki make a mutual attempt to fight Escape before Daigo finds the dying Gabutyra. Luckily, upon being joined by J alongside Masato who appears due to the activation of a one-time anti-virus program, the reunited Go-Busters team drives off the Deboth Army while destroying the satellite stations as Daigo succeeds in restoring Gabutyra to life. Joined by the assembled Zyuranger and Abaranger teams, using the Abaranger and Zyuranger Zyudenchi to give Gabutyra support in replicas of Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus and Bakuryu Tyranno to deal with the giant reinforcements, the Kyoryugers transform and the gathered Dinosaur Super Sentai take out the grunts. After the main team obliterates Enter in his Dark Buster form, Kyoryu Gold destroys Escape while the Abarangers defeat Neo-Geildon, and the Kyoryugers regroup with the Zyurangers as they all combine the Kentrospiker, Howling Cannon, and Dino Bomber into the Ultimate Howling Cannon to destroy Neo-Grifforzar.
However, Neo-Grifforzer contains the blast as he departs to space to sacrifice himself to complete Voldos's evolution. Though the Kyoryugers form Raiden Kyoryuzin, with the Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus and Bakuryu Tyranno replicas transforming into Daizyuzin and Abarenoh, the Dinosaur Super Sentai are powerless against Voldos. Luckily, having obtained the Go-Busters Zyudenchi from Masato before he fades back into data, Red Buster summons Tategami Lioh whose head is used in the Tategami Raiden Kyoryuzin formation so it, Daizyuzin, and Abarenoh can focus their powers to blast Voldos back into space. Later, after giving their goodbyes to the Gabutyra of the past, the Kyoryugers decide to join the Go-Busters in a victory meal.
In the post credits, Neo-Geildon has survived the battle, and he uses Messiah Card 13 to become Neo-Messiah to avenge his creator. Before he can do anything, a rainbow-colored train descends from the sky and from it emerges the 38th Super Sentai... Ressha Sentai ToQger. Using their unconventional fighting style, which includes switching their colors, the ToQgers quickly destroy Neo-Messiah.
Ressha Sentai ToQger: The earliest this movie could take place for the ToQgers is following Station 3, as Right did not join the recently assembled team until the first episode and the first three episodes all followed directly on from each other due to two-straight cliffhanger explanations by Conductor and Ticket regarding their scenario.
With all 3 dinosaur teams accounted for, this movie features every Tyrannosaurus (Geki, Ryouga, Daigo), Triceratops (Dan, Yukito, Amy), and Pteranodon (Mei, Ranru, Utsusemimaru) themed Ranger in Super Sentai history.
However, aside from the Kyoryugers, only Geki, Ryouga, and Yukito appear out of suit.
Utsusemimaru is the only Sixth Ranger to make an appearance, since Burai and Mikoto are deceased.
Although Yayoi appears in this movie, she remains untransformed throughout it, most likely due to the fact that she is an Extra Ranger and not part of the main team.
Ramirez and Tessai are absent from the movie for some unexplained reason, but given the time placement for the Kyoryugers, being between Braves 36 and 37, this is most likely due to them recovering from their fight with Mad Torin as shown in Braves 38 and 39.
Lastly, Asuka is also absent from the film, though this can be attributed to the fact that he is an additional member and not a primary member of the Abaranger team. He could have returned to Another Earth using his child Mikoto's ability to transport him from Dino Earth. As a result, Torin is the only Brachiosaurus themed Ranger to appear in this movie (though he transforms off-screen and fights alongside the Go-Busters).
In the Kyoryu Sentai Team Up, the rangers who fight alongside each other share similarities:
Kyoryu Green & TigerRanger: Both Rangers are the Youngest members of their teams and utilize bladed weaponry.
Kyoryu Black, Kyoryu Blue & MammothRanger: Both Kyoryu Black and MammothRanger are both Black Rangers who are the second-in-command of their teams. Mammoth Ranger and Kyoryu Blue are physically the strongest members of their teams.
The spelling of the ToQger team's name in this movie is different as it spelled "Tokkyuger" before the official spelling was confirmed.
This film's pre-series cameo includes the following firsts:
The first to occur as a post-credits scene.
The first where a transformation is at least implied, even if it isn't seen on screen, due to the announcement made from the ToQ Changer and the "white line" emerging around Neo-Messiah before the ToQgers disembark from the Rainbow Line.
The first where all of the core Ranger's mecha are seen due to the Rainbow Line trains being completely linked and seen as the ToQgers arrive.
As the Deboth Knights perform their conjoined attack on the Go-Busters, the other 2 Buddy Roids were briefly seen when they are forced to cancel their Powered Custom transformation.
This movie has the least number of replaced actors for a film with more than 2 teams. Out of all 5 teams and 25 transformed Rangers (26 if Yayoi is counted as an untransformed Ranger, 27 if Enter is counted as an Evil Ranger in addition to her), only Ranru Itsuki (AbareYellow) is not played by her original actress. The Kyoryugers, Go-Busters, Geki, Ryouga, and Yukito appear out of costume while the rest of the Zyurangers and the ToQgers are at least voiced by their original actors.
There is a rumor that Arisa Komiya (Yoko Usami/Yellow Buster) voiced Ranru's few lines in the movie.
Also, the presence of 26 rangers (although Yayoi doesn't fight) makes this movie the largest gathering of rangers in a non-anniversary special, given that Super Sentai World (which featured the Zyuranger as well) saw the presence of 25 rangers.
During the transformation scene, Geki receives a 21st century era style transformation similar to Adam Park's Once A Ranger morph. This was probably done to match up with the other two modern day Dinosaur Sentai teams.
This is the first VS movie that doesn't show the current and previous Sentai changing and doing the role call together. Instead, it features the team with the same motif doing this.
Despite that Miho Nakamura doesn't appear in this movie, Yayoi starts the countdown, which is something that Miho would do when the Megazord started transporting from Hyper Space. Kuroki reacts with surprise when he hears her do this, realizing how similar the two girls are.
Plezuon and Bragigas only appear in the form of cameos when the Zyudenryu are all seen above the Spirit Base, and when zooming into the Spirit Base respectively.
This movie shares many similarities with the previous VS movie:
Both movies feature dark versions of a Sentai team (dark Gokaigers and dark Kyoryugers).
This movie shows that each of the dinosaurs that would eventually become the main six Zyudenryu all lived in the same time period. However, the dinosaur Stegotchi is based off of, the Stegosaurus, lived in the Late Jurassic period, while the other dinosaurs the other five Zyudenryu were based on all lived in the Late Cretaceous period.
While Tategami Lioh appears in the film, the Go-Busters' main mechas don't.
However, Tategami Lioh doesn't transform into the head of the mecha as it normally would - instead it would attach on Raiden Kyoryuzin's arm to create Tategami Raiden Kyoryuzin.
The cockpits for Daizyuzin and AbarenOh do not appear despite the mechas themselves appearing in the movie. Instead, they are replaced by a bright, white-coloured void.
This could be due to Daizyuzin and AbarenOh likely being recreations of the original mecha, as they transformed directly from Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus and Bakuryuu Tyrannosaurus (which were in turn summoned through the Zyuranger and Abaranger Zyudenchi) respectively without their other components.
Incidentally, the Zyurangers are seen standing inside Daizyuzin's cockpit, even though the original Daizyuzin cockpit has seats, likely to match with the other two dinosaur Sentai teams who stand in their cockpits.
This is the first Sentai VS movie to have more than just the Foot Soldiers of the previous Sentai appear but to have 3 Foot Soldiers from 3 different past seasons appear having a total of 5 Foot Soldier types adding the Foot Soldier types of the current Sentai in this case the Golem Soldiers, the Barmia Soldiers, the Buglars, the Zorima, And the Cambrima.
