|This article is about a/an mecha in Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger.|
Zyudenryu #9 Plezuon (獣電竜九号 プレズオン Jūdenryu Kyūgō: Purezuon) is the Plesiosaurus Zyudenryu who is partnered with Kyoryu Violet. which can transform into a Rocket Form and the Zyuden Giant Plezu-Oh. It can also combine with Zyudenryus Gabutyra and Bunpachy into Bakuretsu Kyoryuzin.
This Zyudenryu is normally hidden in the Ulshade Lab's dock until summoned. When assuming Battle Mode the folded-up wings in Rocket Mode are folded out, giving Plezuon its "flippers".
One of the Ten Great Zyudenryu, Plezuon was a Plesiosaurus that agreed to be modified to fight the Deboth Army in ancient times, but was lost over the eon-long war with the invaders. After the first four Kyoryugers of the team fought their first battle with Deboth, when Zorima appeared across the globe, Plezuon and its partner launched into space, confident the Earth was in safe hands, and the two began studying nearby asteroids that the Deboth Army had arrived in. Plezuon agreed to ally itself to the Kyoryuger team once they returned to Earth, as to allow Doctor Ulshade to retire.
Upon its initial return to Earth, the Deboth Army reacted to Plezuon with fear; they resurrected all three Zetsumates in an attempt to destroy Plezuon. Plezuon survived, however, and was given over to Kyoryu Red, who used Plezuon's Plezu-Oh formation to destroy Debo Nagareboshi once more.
When the Deboth Army re-emerges 100 years after the Kyoryugers defeated Transcendenterfly God Deboth, Plezuon is partnered with Utsusemimaru's descendant Uppy, who becomes Kyoryu Violet III before he discovers his true color and partners with Pteragordon as the second Kyoryu Gold.
Plezuon Rocket Mode
Rocket Mode (ロケットモード Roketto Mōdo) is Plezuon's Zyudenryu mode. As a Plesiosaur, Plezuon is not only amphibious but can use its rocket boosters to fly and even travel into space.
Rocket Henkei Plezu-Oh
Rocket Henkei Plezu-Oh (ロケット変形プレズオー Roketto Henkei Purezuō, Rocket Transformation Plezu King) is the Zyuden Giant mode of Plezuon. It can wield Plezuon's head which makes up its right arm as a lance weapon and can fire its left hand for its Plezu Knuckle (プレズナックル Purezu Nakkuru) rocket punch. In a terrestrial environment, Plezu-Oh has immense strength but is also slow and lumbering. In space however, its boosters allow to move with impressive speed and ability.
Plezu-Oh's finishing attack is the Plezu-Oh Brave Finish (プレズオーブレイブフィニッシュ Purezuō Bureibu Finisshu), where Plezu-Oh pumps the grip of the Plezu Cannon (プレズキャノン Purezu Kyanon) on its right arm three times as the cannon counts backward from three for each pump before firing an intense violet laser at the opponent.
Bakuretsu Kamitsuki Gattai Bakuretsu Kyoryuzin
Bakuretsu Kamitsuki Gattai Bakuretsu Kyoryuzin (爆裂噛み付き合体バクレツキョウリュウジン Bakuretsu Kamitsuki Gattai Bakuretsu Kyōryūjin, Explosive Biting Combination Exploding Dinosaur God) is the combination of Zyudenryu Gabutyra, Bunpachy, and Plezuon.
It can attack with Zyuden Exploding Storm (獣電爆裂ストーム Juden Bakuretsu Sutōmu), where it shoots a Deboth cell-destroying beam from Gabutyra's mouth. As such, it acts as a paralyzing agent, allowing Bakuretsu Kyoryuzin time to fire the finisher.
Said finisher is the Zyuden Cannon Bakuretsu Brave Finish (獣電砲爆裂ブレイブフィニッシュ Judenhō Bakuretsu Bureibu Finisshu, Electric Beast Cannon Explosive Brave Finish), where it performs what would be the Plezu-Oh Brave Finish, hitting the target with a malleable laser in the shape of Plezuon's head and neck. The attack is powerful enough to lift Deboth himself high into the air.
Though Bunpachy serves as the left arm of Bakuretsu Kyoryuzin whenever it is formed, the combination of Plezuon and Gabutyra could in theory be made with Bunpachy swapped for any of the other Zyudenryu that can form the arms (Stegotchi, Dricera, Parasagun, Zakutor, Ankydon). It possibly could even be made with no left arm at all, though of course its combat capabilities would then be limited.
Appearances: Kyoryuger Episodes 23-24, 27, 30, 32, 35, 41
Plezu-Oh Bunpachy (プレズオーブンパッキー Purezuō Bunpakkī) is the Biting Combination of Plezuon and Bunpachy. It was used to fight against an enlarged Debo Hyogakki.
Plezu-Oh is already a force to be reckoned with, but with the Bunpachy Ball, this Combination has far more reach to smash Deboth agents with.
One of its moves is the Rocket Bunpachy Ball (ロケットブンパッキーボール Roketto Bunpakkī Bōru), where Plezu-Oh jumps into the air and spins at high speeds, sending the Ball smashing into anything unfortunate to get in its way. Its finisher is the Plezu-Oh Bunpachy Brave Finish, where Plezu-Oh hits the enemy with the Rocket Bunpacky Ball then fires with the Plezu Cannon.
This formation is exclusive to episode 24.
Plezu-Oh Parasagun (プレズオーパラサガン Purezuō Parasagan) is the Biting Combination between Plezuon and Parasagun. This combination was used as a two-prong attack against an enlarged Resentful Knight Endolf.
Its finisher is the Plezu-Oh Parasagun Brave Finish (プレズオーパラサガンブレイブフィニッシュ Purezuō Parasagan Bureibu Finisshu), where the Zyuden Giant unleashes intense beams from the Plezu Cannon and the Parasa Beam Gun after the Plezu Cannon pumps itself thrice.
This formation is exclusive to episode 26.
Plezu-Oh Zakutor (プレズオーザクトル Purezuō Zakutoru) is the Biting Combination between Plezuon and Zakutor. This formation was part of a two-prong attack against an enlarged Endolf.
After Plezu-Oh Parasagun fired its Zyuden Brave Finish, the Zyuden Giant switched out for Zakutor and tried to slash the Resentful Knight when he was holding off the previously fired finisher, but Endolf surprisingly caught the Zakutor Sword via the two side blades. He then deliberately thrust the Zakutor Sword into his chest right where the mirror was, cracking it, which he then threw Plezu-Oh aside and commanded Luckyuro to use the Shrink Ball on him, then they retreated from the fight while taking Aigaron with them.
This formation is exclusive to episode 26.
Plezu-Oh Ankydon (プレズオーアンキドン Purezuō Ankidon) is the Biting Combination between Plezuon and Ankydon. It was used against two Cambrima under the guidance of Debo Spokorn. They were swiftly destroyed by a shot from the Plezu Cannon and a solid hit with the Ankydon Hammer.
This formation is exclusive to episode 32.
This form is essentially Plezu-Oh wearing an oversized Santa hat.
Plezuon Zyudenchi (プレズオン獣電池 Purezuon Jūdenchi): 7 purple Zyudenchi (originally 5) holding the Kyoryu Spirit of the Plesiosaurus; associated with Kyoryu Violet. Three copies of this battery are given to the present Kyoryuger team, while the remaining four are utilized by Kyoryu Violet. When used in a Gaburivolver, the core team members can shoot out violet-hued bubbles of water to put out fires.
Plezuon Spirit Ranger Purple ver. (プレズオン スピリットレンジャーパープルver. Purezuon Supiritto Renjā Pāpuru Bājon) - A clear version of the Plezuon Zyudenchi that when used in the Gaburivolver allows a Kyoryuger to enter Armed Mode and gain access to the Plezuon Rocket weapon, used by Kyoryu Red. In Kyoryuger & Super Sentai: It's Getting Wild! Dinosaur Encyclopedia DVD, Kyoryu Red Carnival uses this Zyudenchi to equip the Plezu Cannon Arm (プレズキャノンアーム Purezu Kyanon Āmu) on his right arm for TV-Maga Carnival.
Behind the scenes
All of the Zyudenryu/Zyudenchi sport a name that is a portmanteau between their effect/motif and their respective animal name, Plezuon is a portmanteau of Plesiosaurus and "zuoon (Japanese for "zoom").
- Plezuon is the first Zyudenryu with three interchangeable modes.
- Plezuon is the first mecha based on a plesiosaur.
- In the South Korean Kyoryuger dub "Power Rangers Dino Force", Plezu-Oh is renamed "Plezu-King". Like the other Zyudenryu, Plezuon itself is not renamed.
