Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Gorma Tribe (ゴーマ族, Gōma Zoku) are a group of fictional characters and are the antagonists in the 1993 Super Sentai series, Gosei Sentai Dairanger. Eight thousand years ago they were the military of the three tribes, but decided to take the world for themselves and destroy the other two. The Gorma are humans who have mastered You Power (妖力, Yōryoku) and gained the ability to become monsters. Their leader is the Gorma Emperor with many other divisions under him. However, it was revealed that most of the higher aristocracy had been killed centuries before the series even began. It was thought that Shadam had secretly made clay versions of them all in a bid to be emperor himself. However, as he himself turned out to be clay, it's debatable who created the clay copies. While the You Power the Gorma uses gives them great power, it also has damaged their mental stability, as the most powerful Gorma are almost completely insane as seen with the Gorma Emperor and those before him due to the Earth Shaking Jewel.

Gorma XV[edit]

Gorma XV (ゴーマ十五世, Gōma Jūgōsei, 20-49): The fifteenth Emperor of Gorma who mysteriously resurfaced to reopen the Gorma Palace with intent to restore his crumbling empire to its former glory. He is an extremely powerful entity, though a bit insane. The insanity was an inherent aspect of all the Gorma's past fourteen emperors due to the power of the Earth Shaking Jewel which supplies the Emperor with an unlimited supply of "You Power" for him to live, though only few actually know the truth. The Emperor was more of a sadistic, heartless creature with a "playful" outlook on things. However, the Emperor got more serious when he saw Shadam's intention to overthrow him. He was hoping for Shadam to fall to their enemies so he can rule the world forever. But when Shadam became next in line and demanded the Earth Shaking Jewel, the Emperor refuses and attempts to use the jewel to kill Shadam himself. However, The Emperor's own conceit was a flaw as Shadam revealed he recreated the Emperor from clay, only letting him live until Shadam became Emperor himself and Gorma's official leader. With that revelation, Shadam managed to steal the Earth Shaking Jewel while the former Emperor is reduced to clay dust.

Gorma XV is portrayed by Munemaru Kōda (幸田 宗丸, Kōda Munemaru), who also played Hideo Kageyama/Doctor Man in Choudenshi Bioman.

Gorma Triumvirate[edit]

The Gorma Triumvirate (ゴーマ3幹部 Gōma Sankanbu), who are part of the Military Level (Kaku also belongs to this level), help spear head the Gorma's attack on humans.

In episode 30, they get to wield the ReiRyoku powers of Hell.

Shadam[edit]

Commander Shadam (シャダム中佐, Shadamu Chūsa) is the leader of the Gorma Triumvirate and the real father of Akomaru and Kou. He was also the one who spearheaded the Gorma attack against the Dai Tribe in China. He hates humans for their weaknesses and can assume a fighting form, with a mask that practically covers his face.

Shadam's motivation in Gorma was to reach higher rankings until he became the 16th Gorma Emperor, deposing the competition in any way possible. He eventually realized his dream and the power of the Gorma Emperor once he defeated Jiaxu and disposed the previous once he is resurrected so he can become his successor. As Gorma XVI (ゴーマ十六世, Gōma Jūrokusei, 49 & 50), he intended to use the Earth Shaking Jewel to take over the world despite suffering its mind-warping effects, fighting the Dairangers. But when Daijinryuu appears, the Earth Shaking Jewel left Shadam in order to appease Daijinryu's wrath. A maddened Shadam attempted to escape, only to be encountered by Ryou in a one-way knife duel between them. Shadam lost and died on his own knife, revealing that he was actually a clay figure made long ago. As his body crumbled to dust, only an electricity-vibrating human eyeball remained among the pile of dirt. Shadam was revealed to have been responsible for making clay copies of the Gorma higher ranks, as most of them died years ago but since Shadam too was a clay copy, it's not known what happened to the real Shadam and who created the copies.

Shadam is portrayed by Rintarō Nishi (西 凜太朗, Nishi Rintarō), who later voiced Dokoku in Samurai Sentai Shinkenger.

Gara[edit]

Commander Gara (ガラ中佐, Gara Chūsa, 1-49) is the female member of the Gorma Triumvirate, though she was actually a clay copy of the original Gara and a former member of the Dai Tribe who joined Gorma at age 10 when she believed that her friend Kujaku abandoned her after she was scarred in the face while protecting her, getting revenge with Mirror-Makeup Artist's aid. When Gara died soon after, Shadam created the one that the Dairangers would face in the present time, identical to the original in every way. She created a copy of herself called Wraith Gara (生き霊ガラ, Ikiryō Gara) for a short time by dripping her own blood onto a small doll made of straw. During the final battle, Gara learned the truth of her 'existence' as the "Real Gara" appeared and used her power to reduce Gara into dust.

Gara is portrayed by Akiko Amamatsuri (天祭 揚子, Amamatsuri Akiko), who previously portrayed Rui Senda/Dr. Mazenda in Choujuu Sentai Liveman.

Zydos[edit]

Lieutenant Commander Zydos (ザイドス少佐, Zaidosu Shōsa, 1-48) is the strongman, brutal and prone to deep thinking. He was a key player amongst the Gorma because of his power and he could create extremely dangerous new Gorma like Jin. He believed utterly in Shadam as his leader, but was also prone to doing his own things. He has trouble controlling the 3 Gorma Idiots as they tend to botch the plans due to their competitive nature. He was nearly killed by the Heavy Armor Qi Palace, but he survived. During the match between Shadam and Jiaxu, Zydos was sent to destroy the power booster Jiaxu intended to use in the match. Though he barely survived the Heavy Armor Qi Palace for the second time, Zydos died when he turned into his true form: a clay figure created by Shadam as he remembered him.

Zydos is portrayed by Maroshi Tamura (田村 円, Tamura Maroshi).

Senate Level[edit]

The highest level next to the Emperor. Priests, Imperial Guards, Minister's Secretaries, and Archbishop Saw belong on this level.

Archbishop Saw[edit]

The Archbishop Riju/Archbishop Saw (大僧正リジュ/ノコギリ大僧正, Daizōjō Riju/Nokogiri Daizōjō, 7 & 8) was an insane Gorma of higher rank than the Gorma Triumvirate, and Zhang Liao's master. After his pupil failed to kill the Dairangers, Riju took matters to his own hands. He would have succeeded had Zhang Liao not attacked him when he was attacking Ryou. First to be killed by Dairen'oh.

The Archbishop Saw is voiced and portrayed by Ulf Ōtsuki (大月 ウルフ, Ōtsuki Urufu).

General Tenpou[edit]

General Tenpou (田豊将軍, Tenpō Shōgun, 17-48) is second-in-command to the Emperor and Akomaru's teacher/guardian. He was killed by Shadam when Tenpou saw what he was doing to a resting Gorma XV and noticed the clay hand that exposed the Emperor as a clay copy.

Tenpou is portrayed by Chūkō Ueda (上田 忠好, Ueda Chūkō).

Akomaru[edit]

Akomaru (阿古丸, Akomaru, 17-22 & 31-44) is a Gorma child who is the son of Shadam, though the two despise each other fiercely. Shadam apparently had Akomaru put up for adoption when he was born, and was now under General Tenpou's wing. In fact, Akomaru is ranked higher than his father. He wants to replace his father as the Gorma military leader. He first appears to take the power of the Kiba Ranger, knowing Kou has it and aware of their relation and wanted Kou to fight by his side as brothers. Unfortunately, Akomaru saw that Kou seemed unable to hate and it annoyed him. Akomaru was killed when he was crushed by a boulder, with Kou at his side. Later the Gorma Emperor brought Akomaru back from Hell prior to his tenth birthday, when he, after having absorbed Hell's Spirit Power which made him more powerful, and Kou came into their adult power as Gorma, Akomaru using his powers to manipulate Kou in his dreams. Akomaru was made to believe that his mother abandoned him to a father who never cared about him. After losing Kou's mother to the Dairanger, Gorma 15th banished Akomaru from the Gorma. Akomaru gave the Dairangers quite a battle when he rode atop his bodyguard Ikazuchii, via "YouRyoku Fusion". After Ikazuchii died, Akomaru learned the truth that his mother abandoned him because of a taboo that one twin must be killed so the other can have the power of both. So their mother decided to save them, with Akomaru to live as a Gorma and Kou as a normal human. But Akomaru was soon mortally injured by Shadam, limping into the cave collapsing on itself and dying in the embrace of his dying mother with the knowledge that he was loved.

Akomaru is portrayed by Shohei Shibata (柴田 翔平, Shibata Shohei).

Three Ladies of Hell[edit]

Three Ladies of Hell (三人官女, Sannin Kanjo, 17-22) are three sisters who served as Akomaru's bodyguards/nannies, mistress of the 3-as-1 fighting style. They were sent to try to prevent Kiba Ranger being born, and later to track him down as part of Akomaru's scheme of drafting him.

  • Lady Earring (イヤリング官女, Iyaringu Kanjo, 17 & 18): The youngest sister, she is able to shoot her hair to grab opponents in a constrictor hold. Mortally wounded by Kiba Ranger after she found out his true identity, she died from massive bloodloss before she could tell Akomaru.
  • Lady Necklace (ネックレス官女, Nekkuresu Kanjo, 17-20): The middle sister, she is able to extend her neck to great lengths & possesses telescopic vision in her third eye. She disguised herself as the abusing and indifferent mother of Akomaru's "Kasumi guise". Killed by Dairen'oh.
  • Lady Ring (指輪官女, Yubiwa Kanjo, 17-22): The eldest sister, she was able to create energy rings to lasso her opponents. After her two sisters died, Lady Ring vowed to avenge them. Using their possessions, Lady Ring could create "phantom" versions of her sisters to fight with her. Using this ability she easily defeated Won Tiger, but later became first to be killed by Kibadaioh. Lady Ring was portrayed by Rumi Watanabe.

Gorma Four Heavenly Kings[edit]

The Gorma Four Heavenly Kings (ゴーマ四天王, Gōma Shitennō, 20 & 28-31) are the most favored of the Gorma Emperor's minions; East Heaven (東方天, Tōhōten), South Heaven (南方天, Nanpōten), West Heaven (西方天, Saihōten), and North Heaven (北方天, Hoppōten); wearing the attire of Buddhist Priests and being masters of displacement. They attempted to use their illusions to trap the Dairangers with key figures (Kujaku, Jin, Gorma 3 Stooges, and Akomaru) individually. Their teamwork skills were their greatest power, as they could merge into one deadly four-headed entity called Combined Four Heavenly Kings (合体四天王, Gattai Shitennō). They survived the attack of Kiba Daioh twice, but were soon the first to be killed by Heavy Armor Qi Palace.

East Heaven, South Heaven, West Heaven, and North Heaven are portrayed by Yoshinori Okamoto (岡本 美登, Okamoto Yoshinori), Hideaki Kusaka (日下 秀昭, Kusaka Hideaki), Daigaku Sekine (関根 大学, Sekine Daigaku) and Kiyokazu Inoue (井上 清和, Inoue Kiyokazu), respectively.

Thunderbolt[edit]

Thunderbolt (イカヅチ, Ikazuchi, 42-44) is Akomaru's insectoid bodyguard, this monster fought the Kiba Ranger-less Dairangers. He obtained his name from the fact that he can fire lightning from parts of his body, powerful enough to attract Daijinryuu and the Gorma-infested Kiba Ranger's attention. He was winning until Kiba Ranger was purified and rejoined the team, thus killing Thunderbolt with Heavy Armor Ch'i Palace.

Imperial Guard[edit]

In episode 49, the armors of Kaku and Shiryu are brought to life and are metal-colored by Shadam who sends them against the Dairangers. They are defeated by Shouji, Kazu and Ryou and disappear.

  • Lieutenant Shiryu (子竜中尉, Shiryū Chūi, 45 & 46): One of the leaders of the Imperial Guard, Shiryu is a member of the Marching Men. He was Kaku's supporter amongst the Gorma. He had Hercules-like strength and from his eye beams the power of the monster-strength of the Gorma. He dies fighting Dairen'oh to Kaku's horror. Voiced and portrayed by Shun Yuzuhara (柚原 旬, Yuzuhara Shun).

The Gorma 3 Stooges[edit]

The Gorma 3 Stooges (三バカゴーマ, San Baka Gōma, 15/Soccer, 24/Baseball, 40/Motorcycle Race, 47 & 48) are three Gorma in the service of Zydos, though their foolishness deemed them at lower ranks; they all have a sense of competition and honor. Furthermore, to make them less respectable, none of them can assume human form like their fellow Gorma.

They were beaten by Ryuuseioh the first time and Kibadaioh the second time. Though they survived both fights, the trio ended up being bandaged up. Over the course of the series, they would gain respect for the Dairangers (and vice versa); specifically for Shoji, who was seen as the most competitive of the Dairangers. After all that happened to them, they managed to survive the entire series after being blown up various times. Deep down, they never wanted to kill the Dairangers, just defeat them in contests and sports.

They would finally settle things with the Dairangers in a bike race, though they made their peace with the Dairangers using the minefield Zydos placed on the finish line to fake their deaths.

The trio later returned to help Shoji.

Before entering battle, they say "The three burning stars! Behold the famous, innocent monsters, Gorma 3 Stooges".

President Gravestone[edit]

President Gravestone (墓石社長, Hakaishi Shachō) is the tombstone-themed/right-hand man of the group; he can open his head to reveal a variety of things and refers to himself as "Placing hands together to pray! The offering star, President Gravestone!".

Telephone Sensei[edit]

Telephone Sensei (電話先生, Denwa Sensei) is Kamikaze's telephone-themed "girl", able to control any phone to spy on people or attack from long distances, refers to herself as "Free to spy, nation-wide! Japan's public telephone corporation star, Telephone Sensei!".

Telephone Sensei is voiced by Akiko Muta (むた あきこ).

General Kamikaze[edit]

General Kamikaze (神風大将, Kamikaze Taishō) is the motorcycle-themed leader of the group who rides a motorcycle. He tends to use "baby" in his sentences, refers to himself as "The red bullet cutting through the wind! The roaring engine star, General Kamikaze!".

General Kamikaze is voiced by Nobuyuki Hiyama (檜山 修之, Hiyama Nobuyuki).

Jin Matoba[edit]

Demon-Fist Master Jin Matoba (魔拳士的場ジン, Makenshi Matoba Jin, 26-28, 35, 39, 47 & 48) is a master of dark karate and all manner of martial arts, and was a gentleman assassin. His favorite targets were martial arts masters, as his own master cut off his left arm. Jin got a prosthesis, perfected his arts and went on a campaign to slaughter other masters who were too hard on their students in order to return and kill his first teacher.

Jin's trademark was to flip a coin into the air and kill his opponent before it landed. But the man foiled that plan by dying before Jin got around to it. But that all changed the day he met Ryou and was defeated by him. Later, Jin sold his soul to Zydos to become stronger than Ryou, becoming the Demon-Fist Master after punching Aki, a young nurse who was the only person who cared for him. But Jin refused to be Gorma's lapdog and perfected his new-found powers on his own, after which he went hunting for Ryou.

His power had many facets, such as the deadly "Panther Fang Style Secret Art: Demon Path You Fist: Dance of the Spider" (豹牙流奥義魔道妖拳クモの舞, Hyōgaryū Ōgi Madō Yōken Kumo no Mai) poisoning technique, the fierce "Panther Fang Style Secret Art: Wicked Heart, Wind Fist (豹牙流奥義邪心風拳, Hyōgaryū Ōgi Jashin Fūken) and his "Demon Path: Destruction Wave" (魔導破壊波, Madō Hakaiha). He can transform into his Demon-Fist Master form by calling out "Demon Nature, Advent!" (魔将降臨, Mashō Kōrin). But Zydos captured the rogue and infused him with more Gorma power, turning him into Garouki (餓狼鬼, Garōki, Hungry-Wolf Demon, 39). Unlike the normally born Gorma, Jin's transformation was against his will and thus he was unable to control himself as Garouki.

As Garouki, Jin is like a totally obedient dog for Zydos with a desire to kill and eat his victims. Jin was soon freed of his "Gorma-incarnation" thanks to Ryou's attack separating the monster from his body. While Jin fought Zydos, with Garouki destroyed by the Qi-Power Bazooka, he was mortally wounded. After one final bout with Ryou, Jin went on the run from the Gorma.

Jin was last seen fighting the bulk of an entire army of Cotpotros led by Zydos, only to be seemingly gunned down by the second wave. But Jin later appeared to Ryou and proceeded to beat sense into him for not giving up despite no longer being a Dairanger.

Jin is portrayed by Yutaka Hirose (広瀬 裕, Hirose Yutaka) (credited as Takumi Hirose), who previously portrayed Ley Wanda in Choushinsei Flashman, Dr. Kempu in Choujuu Sentai Liveman and Emperor Tranza in Choujin Sentai Jetman.

Cotpotros[edit]

The Cotpotros (コットポトロ, Kottopotoro) are Gorma grunts in black tuxedo tights with lipped but otherwise blank black and white faces. They would disguise as humans and serve virtually any Gorma, including the Three Gorma Stooges, serving as players in their various games. In the finale, the Dairanger faced red-dressed Cotpotros in the palace. The group were later summoned by Zaigan during Super Sentai World.

Gorma Minions[edit]

The Gorma Minions (ゴーマ怪人, Gōma Kaijin) are the warriors of the Gorma Tribe, having both human and monstrous forms.
