The Earth Condemnation Group Yuumajuu (地球犠獄集団 幽魔獣, Chikyū Gigoku Shūdan Yūmajū?, [Note 1]) are the second set of fictional antagonists of the thirty-fourth Super Sentai Series Tensou Sentai Goseiger, that are the second group to battle the Goseigers for their destruction of the Earth. Like their predecessors, the Universal Annihilation Army Warstar, each of their names is a modification of a film title. For the Yuumajuu, these films are monster movies and each member of Yuumajuu is modeled after a specific cryptid or other horror film creatures with an arthropod element. In addition, the kanji in the name of a Yuumajuu is indicative of its abilities. The name "Yuumajuu" comes from the Japanese title of the film Rise of the Gargoyles (U.M.A(ユーマ) 2010, Yūma Nisenjū?), which in turn uses a Japanese term for cryptid: "U.M.A. (Unidentified Mysterious Animal)".

Fictional history[edit]

Ten-thousand years ago, Yuumajuu battled the Gosei Angels until their two leaders were sealed by Brajira in the Erurei Box (エルレイの匣, Erurei no Hako?, [Note 2]), a source of the Yuumajuu's power. In 2010, Dereputa's meteor shower inadvertently exposed the Erurei Box as Brajira secretly breaks the seal on it in his Buredoran guise, freeing the Yuumajuu once more as they intend to pollute the Earth and make it into an ideal paradise for themselves. At the same time, Gosei Knight is reawakened in response to stop them.

Makuin[edit]

Makuin of the Blob (ブロブの膜(マク)イン, Burobu no Makuin?, 17-32) is the leader of the Yuumajuu, wishing to reform the world in his image for his kind to flourish in and taking delight in human suffering. He can use his Dorodorod (泥ドロッド, Dorodoroddo?) cane to perform spells and manipulate his body. He can convert himself into the Yuuma Buster (幽魔バスター, Yūma Basutā?) for Kinggon to use in their Yuuma Dynamic (幽魔ダイナミック, Yūma Dainamikku?) attack and says "Shimmering Yuumatick Power!" (ゆらめきの幽魔チックパワー!, Yurameki no Yūmachikku Pawā!?). While starting phase one of their final plan, Makuin is apparently destroyed by Ground Gosei Great. However, Makuin intends for his apparent demise to absorb the full brunt of Super Gosei Power before his remains are transferred into the Erurei Box to regenerate and create the Yuuma Hole (幽魔ホール, Yūma Hōru?) to destroy the Earth. After the box is enlarged and placed on top of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, Makuin begins the final phase of their plan: absorbing the entire Earth. But the Goseigers travel inside and after overcoming his illusions they reach his core in the Yuuma Hole, destroying him forever. His spirit later appears to Brajira along Kinggon, futiley trying to attack him before being cast away.[1][2] He is named after The Blob (マックイーンの絶対の危機, Makkuīn no Zettai no Kiki?) and his name includes the kanji for "membrane" (, maku?). He is modeled after an earthworm.

Makuin is voiced by Chafurin (茶風林, Chafūrin?).

Kinggon[edit]

Kinggon of the Bigfoot (ビッグフットの筋(キン)グゴン, Biggufutto no Kingugon?, 17-32) is the military leader of the Yuumajuu and one of their strongest warriors, armed with the Kingbō (金グ棒, Kingubō?) kanabō. He tends to say certain words three times in a sentence. Though he and Makuin are a powerful pair, Kinggon unintentionally falls into the spell of his friend Jogon by Buredoran, nearly getting himself killed by the Goseigers when he attempts to prove his superior strength to what he believed was Makuin. However, Kinggon realized he was deceived and managed to find the hive holding the Bibi Bugs before returning to get rid of Buredoran. Kinggon aids Makuin in their final plan until his partner is killed off and he himself is destroyed by Gosei Ultimate soon after. His spirit later appears to Brajira along with Makuin, futiley trying to attack him before being cast away.[3][4] He is named after King Kong (キングコング, Kingu Kongu?), his name sounding similar to the Japanese cryptid Hibagon and using the kanji for "muscle" (, kin?). He is modeled after a tarantula.

Kinggon is voiced by Kosuke Takaguchi (高口 公介, Takaguchi Kōsuke?).

Buredoran[edit]

Buredoran of the Chupacabra (チュパカブラの武(ブ)レドラン, Chupakabura no Buredoran?, 18-29) is the Yuumajuu's strategist armed with the Bredolicers (武レドライサー, Bredoraisā?), an alias Brajira used to get close to the Yuumajuu so he can seal them. However, after Warstar was defeated by the Goseigers, Buredoran resumes his Yuumajuu guise as he releases Makuin and Kinggon, providing them with the enlarging Bibi Bugs (ビービ虫, Bībi Mushi?) and Demon Bug Soldiers Bibi.[5][6] Sensing the Abare Headder, Buredoran manages to take it as his weapon by acting without the others and somehow tames it. However, Gosei Red manages to reach the Headder and convert it into the Miracle Dragon Headder, resulting in Buredoran's first defeat by the Goseigers as Makuin and Kinggon imprison him for his recklessness. Though eventually released, Buredoran proceeds to turn Kinggon against Makuin and take his place as Makuin's right-hand man in order to remove him from power. However, this scheme backfires and Buredoran is defeated by Ground GoseiGreat. Eventually, after aligning himself with the Gedoushu, Buredoran's remains are found by Metal-Alice, presenting him to Robogōgu who revives him as Buredo-RUN of the Cyborg.[7][8] As a Yuumajuu, Buredoran's name includes the kanji for "warrior" (, bu?) and is now modeled after a house centipede.

Buredoran is voiced by Nobuo Tobita (飛田 展男, Tobita Nobuo?).
