- ―ED theme lyric[src]
Zyudenryu #00 Tobaspino (獣電竜零号 トバスピノ Jūdenryu Reigō: Tobasupino) is a navy Spinosaurus-themed Zyudenryu that appears in the Kyoryuger movie, and is Deathryuger's (forced) partner. Tobaspino later becomes Kyoryu Navy's rightful partner. It is, essentially, a recolor of Gabutyra with some alterations.
Tobaspino is a navy and yellow Spinosaurus that was modified to fight the Deboth Army. Eons later, Tobaspino was awoken and forcibly controlled by Deathryuger. It is Zyudenryu #00, as it was created before the 10 Great Zyudenryu were. When entering Battle Mode, the boomerang that would form one of SpinoDai-Oh's weapons pop up from within Tobaspino's spine.
It can combine with Ankydon and Bunpachy to form Kamitsuki Gattai SpinoDai-Oh, becoming its torso, head, legs, and weapons. During its time under Deathryuger's corruption, under guidance from his Flute Buster's dark melody, Tobaspino can bite any Zyudenryu that would make an intended body parts for the SpinoDai-Oh formation. As demonstrated in Brave 42 Tobaspino can initiate its own formation without the Kyoryugers' help and force a Spinodai-Oh formation simply by headbutting a three-formation Zyuden Giant and taking over the main formation by ejecting the core (eg. in this case, it ejected Pteragordon from Pteraiden-Oh Western and take over as Spinodai-Oh Western).
Tobaspino was the first Zyudenryu to be created, before the 10 Great Zyudenryu. However, when Chaos learned of its existance, he retaliated by creating the first Knight, D. D, as the Ferocious Knight, drove Tobaspino insane, allowing it to take control of the Zyudenryu Tobaspino.
The two almost caused the extinction of the dinosaurs, but a human priestess nearby at the time began singing. Her song cleared Tobaspino's mind control, allowing it to defeat D. Soon after, it went deep underground to sleep, nearby what would later be the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum.
In the present day, the poor Tobaspino was controlled again by D as Deathryuger and forcefully combined with Ankydon and Bunpachy into SpinoDai-Oh. Fortunately, Tobaspino was saved thanks to the Kyoryugers and Meeko (who was the priestress' descendant).
Tobaspino would be summoned again by the Kyoryugers in the battle against a revived D and a Prehistoric God Deboth.
When the Deboth Army re-emerges 100 years after the Kyoryugers defeated Transcendenterfly God Deboth, Tobaspino is partnered with Daigo's descendant Dai-kun, who becomes Kyoryu Navy before he discovers his true color and partners with Gabutyra as the second Kyoryu Red, though he has his primary Kyoryu Navy form.
- 00. Tobaspino (トバスピノ Tobasupino) - A navy Zyudenchi holding the Kyoryu Spirit of the Spinosaurus; associated with Deathryuger. D uses it to steal Meeko's voice and control Tobaspino. It is later given to Meeko. In Brave 39, Kyoryu Red Carnival uses this Zyudenchi to wield the Spino Boomerang (スピノブーメラン Supino Būmeran) in his right arm and the Spino Defenser (スピノディフェンサー Supino Difensā) in his left arm for Samba Carnival Special.
- D. Deathryuger (デスリュウジャー Desuryūjā) - Three navy Zyudenchi created by Deboth and given to Ferocious Knight D to turn into Deathryuger and for finishing moves with the Flute Buster.
Behind the scenes
All of the Zyudenryu/Zyudenchi sport a name that is a portmanteau between their effect/motif and their respective animal name, Tobaspino is a portmanteau of Spinosaurus and Butobasse (Japanese slang often referring to "kicking butt", etc.).
- Tobaspino is the only Zyudenryu who is not part of the Ten Great Zyudenryu, being created before them.
- It is similar to last year's FS-0O, as they are both Movie-exclusive Mecha numbered "0".
- It is the first Dinosaur mecha to use a navy color scheme.
- Its roar is the same as the Kyoryu Origami's roar from Samurai Sentai Shinkenger.
- Coincidentally, both are dinosaur-themed mecha that first appeared in their respective series summer movie.
- The model for Tobaspino was modified to create Allomerus' Zyudenryu form which was briefly seen in a flashback in Brave 34 before the 13 Guardians lost their physical bodies at the hands of Great Land Devil Gadoma.
- Tobaspino holds a record for being the most recurring movie mech to appear in the show, with three episodes.
- It is the second Spinosaurus themed mecha, after SpinoGold from Abaranger.
- Tobaspino is, as of recently, the last movie mecha to appear in the TV show proper, as the movie mechas that appear after it don't appear in the TV show at all.
