This is the first series to have separate factions of villains since Seijuu Sentai Gingaman. Although there is some animosity between the member groups, they occasionally work together to serve their own ambitions.

Its sole survivor, High Priest Gaja (大神官ガジャ Daishinkan Gaja?), intends to restore Goodomu its former glory by retrieving the Precious lost to them over the thousands of years they spent in slumber. Goodomu was the first and last Negative the Boukengers had to deal with. In the end, Gaja was defeated and re-entered hibernation to re-await his day of ruling the world.

Precious[edit]

Main article: Precious (Boukenger)

Precious (プレシャス Pureshasu?) are the dangerous treasures that the Boukengers and Negative are fighting over. For a relic to be considered a Precious, it must be physically or technologically superior to any current human (or SGS-related) technology. The hand-held Accellular henshin devices use their half-open Scan Mode to determine the "Hazard Level" of each relic; the higher the number, the more important or dangerous the Precious is. Each relic that ends up in the Boukengers' hands is placed into a box that materializes from a card-like device.

The 30 Sentai Encyclopedia (30戦隊大全集 Sanjū Sentai Daizenshu?) is a series of featurettes that air at the end of each episode (Task) of Boukenger that honors each of its predecessors in the Super Sentai franchise, starting with Task 4. They looked back at each of the 29 previous teams, referencing various items within the older shows, and later on, wearing the costumes and using other props from the series, such as the "civilian" clothing. After covering themselves, they start a new series of segments called the Special Files (スペシャルファイル Supesharu Fairu?) that cover milestones from the "First Gattai Robo" to the "First Sixth Hero" and then from the "First Multi Gattai" to the "Extra Heroes", playing an insert song from the respective series. The show's final segment (Task 48) covered its successor Juken Sentai Gekiranger.

The Greatest Precious[edit]

Episode 18 of Kamen Rider Kabuto showed a short preview for the Boukenger movie, and starting with Task 19, Boukenger showed its own previews. The movie is titled GoGo Sentai Boukenger The Movie: The Greatest Precious (轟轟戦隊ボウケンジャーTHE MOVIE 最強のプレシャス GōGō Sentai Bōkenjā Za Mūvī Saikyō no Pureshasu?), which occurs between Tasks 28 and 29. It was released in theaters on August 5, 2006. A mysterious being called Muse (ミューズ Myūzu?) awakens, announcing the Precious to whoever gets to her first, causing a 5-way confrontation between the Boukengers, Gaja, the Jyaryu, DarkShadow and the Questers. Even Satoru's father, Kouichi (虹一 Kōichi?) is involved. But as Satoru learns while dealing with his father ideals, the prize is more treacherous than the path to it.

GoGo Sentai Boukenger vs. Super Sentai[edit]

As with all previous anniversary series, Boukenger features a team up special featuring five past Sentai members and a new hero, entitled GoGo Sentai Boukenger vs. Super Sentai (轟轟戦隊ボウケンジャー VS スーパー戦隊 GōGō Sentai Bōkenjā Basu Sūpā Sentai?).

The villain for this special, Time Demon Chronos (時の魔神クロノス Toki no Majin Kuronosu?), abducts all of the Boukenger, save for Eiji, into an alternate dimension. A warrior known solely as Aka Red contacts Eiji on Earth and provide him a book that holds the names of all of the past warriors in it. He goes out and seeks the assistance of Tsubasa Ozu (MagiYellow of Mahou Sentai Magiranger) at a boxing match, Tekkan "Tetsu" Aira (DekaBreak of Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger) while he is undercover with the Polar Dragon Mafia, Asuka Ono (AbareBlack of Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger) taking care of his daughter on Dino-Earth, and Nanami Nono (Hurricane Blue of Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger) at her concert. They then fight Chronos who has purchased Goodomu Engines from Gaja in order to bring back Furabiijo from Hurricaneger, revive Duchess Org Tsuetsue from Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger and Sorcery Priest Meemy of Magiranger. While the remaining Boukengers are in the other dimension, they meet up with Hikaru (MagiShine of Magiranger) and Smoky, his cat genie, and try to find a way to escape. When Chronos turns Meemy, Tsuetsue, and Furabiijo into a staff-like Precious with a Hazard Level of 666, Aka Red becomes a vessel for the six Sentai Spirits and allows for DaiVoyager to become Burning Legend DaiVoyager (バーニングレジェンドダイボイジャー Bāningu Rejendo DaiBoijā?).

  • "Boukensha ON THE ROAD" (冒険者 ON THE ROAD Bōkensha On Za Rōdo?, "Adventurers on the Road")

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Gōgō (轟轟?) literally translates as "Rumbling".
  2. ^ "Boukenger" (ボウケンジャー Bōkenjā?) comes from the Japanese word for "adventurer" (冒険者 Bōkensha?), and is a portmanteau of "Adventure" (冒険 Bōken ?) and "Ranger" (レンジャー Renjā?).
