But, Geki Jū Leopard-Ken user Miki Misaki encounters a wild child named Jyan Kandou before she is attacked by a group of Akugata martial artists led by Rin Jū Mantis-Ken user Makirika, who steals the Bracelet. Then, the leader of Rin Jū Hall, Rio, obeying the souls of the long dead founders of the Rin Jūken style, starts their plans to conquer the world by first amassing Rinki energy from the terror inflicted on humans. However, the Grand Master of the Geki Jūken style, Kensei Xia Fu, along with Miki have been prepared for this coming battle and were training two young fighters: Geki Jū Cheetah-Ken practitioner Ran Uzaki and Geki Jū Jaguar-Ken user Retu Fukami. Jyan joins the other two warriors in forming the Gekiranger team. However, they face Makirika, now a Beast-Man after absorbing enough Rinki.

Xia Fu uses the Geki Waza Double-Double Clone Fist to create a giant version of himself that blew Giant Makirika away. Having seen this, Ran and Retu ask Xia Fu to teach them the Geki Waza technique. Xia Fu responds saying that the way to obtain it is to first teach Jyan the Beast Arts. The two reluctantly start the training, but Jyan, bored with basic training, ran off with the Geki Nunchaku as Makirika makes his move by flooding the city with Rin Jū Chameleon-Ken Mistress Mere to overview his progress. However, the three managed to master the Double-Double Clone Fist by joining their unique attributes to create the Geki Beasts and formed Geki Tohja, who defeated Makirika with Mere and her captive, Geki Jū Fly-Ken user Bae, as witnesses (Bae commentates on the fight).

Though Gyuuya had the upper hand in their first encounter, Jyan defeated him with "Cleaning Power" he obtained from his training.

However, the Five Venom-Ken begin their fight against the Gekirangers, overpowering them until Xia Fu saved them. However, it was a ploy set up by Rio to deal with Xia Fu himself with his Rin Jū Lion-Ken style, revealing the link between them as not only master and apprentice but rivals based on his dream visions. However, Rio soon learns that his destined rival is not Xia Fu, but Jyan. To confirm this, he had Jyan poisoned, forcing him and the others to fight all Five Venom-Ken members at once in Geki Tohja for the antidote. But the Gekirangers managed to master the Kaleido Spiral Jump in time to get the cure, with Rio calling off the attack for now.[4]

With Jyan forced to watch, Ran challenges Kademu in a duel of high-speed martial arts, the Thousand-Kens Many Strikes competition. Though he won, postponing his fight with Ran on account of wind, Ran was the true winner as she was more accurate than Kademu.

A strange picture dealer named Pierre Fujishiro comes to SCRTC to obtain a painting from Retu, which is still incomplete. As Retu's past is unveiled, Rin Jū Gecko-Ken user Moriya of the Five Venom-Ken arrives to cause havoc. The Gekirangers intervene, but are overwhelmed by Moriya's unpredictable tactics and fighting style, forcing them to retreat. During another training session involving window-washing, Ran reveals to Jyan that just fighting to win is not always Retu's goal; to him, true victory is obtained when he beats his opponent at their own game. In their second encounter, Retu manages to knock Moriya off his wall with artistic feeling at his side, forcing a fight between him and Geki Tohja. Moriya reveals his Secret Ringi, Rapid-Growth Arm, much to the chagrin of Mere, as she assumed that Moriya was the True Poison user. Regardless, he is destroyed much to Mere's dismay, with only three left to spy on. Retu soon completed his painting afterward with Pierre asking to have it.[6] 

Shuba-Shuba Dancing![edit]

Naruhisa Arakawa April 1, 2007
Miki's daughter Natsume visits the SCRTC offices before her dance lessons, saying she has quit the team. At the same time, Rin Jū Scorpion-Ken user Sorisa of the Five Venom-Ken wreaks havoc on the city, using her troop of dancing Rinsis to incite fear among the humans. The Gekirangers attempt to fight Sorisa with little luck before Rin Jū Toad-Ken user Maga (who has feelings for Sorisa) intervened because he thought Retu and Sorisa were making out. Though Geki Tohja was unable to kill him, Maga retreated upon learning Sorisa walked off in a huff during the fight, with Mere deciding to help him. To oppose the dance-styles of Sorisa, the Gekirangers must learn some dancing moves themselves from Natsume's teacher. Once the Gekirangers get the hang of dancing with Jyan's Shuba-Shuba style, they take a rest and watch Natsume's class practice. They all notice that Natsume is not dancing like the others, and Jyan realizes that it is because she does not have "Shuba-Shuba" or feeling in her dancing. Natsume storms out and Miki tries to reassure her, until they are attacked by Sorisa and her Rinsis. Miki holds them off until the Gekirangers arrive and counter with their dancing. At first, the Gekirangers were able to counter Sorisa, but when Maga arrives with love-confidence from Mere, he and Sorisa quickly gain the upper hand by bringing his defense and her offense together into a devastating tag-team.[7]

Naruhisa Arakawa April 8, 2007
With the combined defense of Maga and offense of Sorisa, the Gekirangers were overwhelmed. To counter the powerful tag-team, the Geki Bazooka needs to be used despite still being incomplete. However, to perform the Geki Waza Fierce-Fierce Cannon, it must be charged within two minutes, leaving the Gekirangers open to attack. Thus Jyan must train so he can hold off both two Venom-Ken at once while Ran and Retu charge the weapon up with their Geki . But Jyan's need not to be "Boko-Boko" (beaten up) resulted with the first try a bust. But as Xia Fu endures the pain of training Ran and Retu himself, he has Natsume train Jyan in the wait department. When the Gekiranger encountered Maga and Sorisa once again, Jyan was able to hold them off long enough for the Geki Bazooka to fully charge up. The Gekirangers used the new weapon to destroy Maga and later fought and destroyed the irate Sorisa with Geki Tohja's Great Spin-Spin Leg. Now only Rin Jū Snake-Ken user Braco of the Five Venom-Ken remains, and Rio's dreams are getting stronger by the minute to the snake's advantage.[8]

Genki Yoshimura April 15, 2007
After remembering her first meeting with Rio, Mere is encountered by Braco, who reveals his plans to assassinate Rio and offers her to join him. Mere refuses and angrily kills Braco, only to learn that he is the True Poison user when he used his power to revive himself after receiving the deathblow. After revealing that the True Poison can resurrect the dead, Braco easily defeats Mere while gloating that he will kill Rio during his most vulnerable state, while he is in deep meditation, with aid from the newly resurrected Moriya and Kademu. Mere, having survived the attack, purposely attacks the Gekirangers while they were training in order to goad them into using the Geki Bazooka on her to perfect herself for Rio's sake. Once she managed to learn how to deflect their attack, Jyan realizes that she is "Kena-Kena" (ambiguous in terms of affiliation). Meanwhile, Mere hurries to Rio's aid and holds herself until Rio awakens and effortlessly destroys Kademu. While Mere goes after Braco, a fearful Moriya flees to attempt to gather Rinki until the Gekirangers found him and defeated him for good. As for Mere, she managed to defeat Braco with her training until he explained why Rio wants the True Poison and how only three remain. Though swayed by the notion of being truly alive, Mere snaps Braco's fingers off and kills him on the spot while telling him she gets that feeling of "true life" by staying at Rio's side. Now with the three True Poison fangs, Rio is a step closer to his goal: To revive the Kenma and become stronger.[9]

We open to the three Gekirangers walking through the forest to deliver a package to an old friend of Xia Fu's. Prior to it, the Gekirangers were fighting Rin Jū Pangolin-Ken user Muzankose who defeated Geki Tohja before resuming his task of causing an earthquake. To stop Muzankose, Xia Fu sends them on an errand to a hut somewhere on Shibe Mountain, said to be haunted. But on their way, they encounter the Mononoke, who tied them up and took the package. Now mad, the Gekirangers change and pursue the Mononoke, forced to fight him to regain the package. But the mononoke's playful (and perverted) moves overwhelmed the Gekirangers. But despite losing to him, the three refused to give up and managed to turn the tables and regained the package. They soon learn the Mononoke is actually the Kensei known as Master Elehung Kam Po, a grand master of the Geki Jū Elephant-Ken. Elehung also revealed the item they had delivered to him was the Geki Hammer which Ran is to master to fight Muzankose. During all of this, Rio begins to travel to an ominous mountain where one of the Three Kenma rests while Mere has Muzankose to start the earthquake that would destroy the city.[10]

11 "Ukya-Ukya! Jūken Armament"
"Ukya-Ukya! Jūken Busō" (ウキャウキャ!獣拳武装) 
Michiko Yokote April 29, 2007
Ran begins to master the Elephant-Ken and the Geki Hammer under Master Elehung. However, Elehung's ideals and training methods differ from Xia Fu's own, thus confusing Ran while Jyan and Retu attempt to fight Muzankose without her. But the antics of Elehung managed to make Ran laugh while she was fly fishing, a part of her training, finally making a hit. Learning that happiness is a needed element in any situation, a "different" Ran uses the Geki Hammer to help her friends and defeat Muzankose in time. When Muzankose grew, Elehung tells the Gekirangers to use Ran's training to summon the legendary Geki Beast Geki Elephant, which combines with Geki Tohja, forming Geki ElephanTohja and defeating Muzankose. However, as Xia Fu sensed, Rio managed to destroy the barrier that kept him from reviving the Sky Kenma: Rin Jū Hawk-Ken grand master Kata.[11]

While wandering through the city, Jyan finds Natsume at a bathhouse looking at the carp windsocks. When the bathhouse's owner Gen-san confronts Jyan when he is trying to take down one of the windsocks, Natsume is accidentally sent flying towards the street as a result of Rin Jū Eel-Ken user Nagiu's Ringi. The Gekirangers try to fight, but he is too slippery to be hit by their attacks. Xia Fu sends the trio to train at the bathhouse, where they re-encounter Elehung and Gen-san who is revealed to be a master of "towel-style." Jyan learns how to use the "towel-style" and in the next fight with Nagiu, Jyan uses one of the carp windsocks to dry the Beast-Man of the slippery mucus, followed by the Geki Bazooka. Nagiu soon grows to his giant size, and the Gekirangers fight first as Geki Tohja and then Geki ElephanTohja. Nagiu is ultimately defeated by the Great Firm-Firm Ball of Geki ElephanTohja.

Elsewhere, Rio was trying to learn how to attain ultimate power from Kata in a battle to the death, and in the process is blasted by the Hawk-Ken master's Darkness Cannon and is placed within the event of his past that started his path in becoming a Rin Jūken user. Rio was able to absorb his own despair and breaks Kata's illusion, sparing Kata for enabling him to become stronger. By being beaten, Kata accepted Rio as a pupil to learn the full power of Rin Jūken Akugata.[12]

To obtain the despair he needs to teach Rio to channel his hatred as power, Kata sends up his two bodyguards, the two Flying-Ken, to be his eyes while providing him more Rinki. Meanwhile, Xia Fu takes the Gekirangers to the ballet much to the dismay of Jyan (who falls asleep in boredom) and Ran and to the delight of Retu. In the middle of the performance, Jyan woke up and sensed the Flying-Ken attacking people, turning their fear into lightning for their plan to destroy the city and get more Rinki from it. The Flying-Ken, Rin Jū Crane-Ken user Rūtsu and Rin Jū Crow-Ken user Rasuka, defeat the Gekirangers as well as overpowering Geki ElephanTohja. When the team asks Xia Fu on a technique to fly to counter the two flying martial artists, he sends them to a mysterious appreciation festival where they meet Kensei Bat Li, a grand master of the Geki Jū Bat-Ken style. Though he refused at first, Bat Li changes his mind when Retu shows him his abilities. While Jyan and Ran attempt to stop the Flying-Ken, Retu begins learning Geki Jū Bat-Ken and the art of the war fan from Bat Li, whose lesson is simple: "Abandon all techniques to master this fighting style."[13]

Genki Yoshimura May 20, 2007

Ran and Jyan arrive to fight the Flying-Ken, who overpower them until Rasuka is offended by them and has Rūtsu fly off while he beats the two Gekirangers by himself, wounding Ran's leg. While Ran is being tended to, Miki brings out the new weapon for Retu and tells Jyan and Ran to give it to him once he has completed his training. This training, in his eyes, is attempting to dance just like Bat Li. He initially has trouble, but he eventually realizes that Bat Li's dancing has no technique. Once Jyan and Ran find Retu and Bat Li, Retu has mastered the Bat-Ken style while in a trance, and he is given the Geki Fan. With the Geki Fan, Geki Blue defeats the Flying-Ken singlehandedly. The Flying-Ken enlarge themselves and are able to unleash their attack, but on Bat Li's words, the Gekirangers enter a trance to bring out legendary Geki Beast Geki Bat, with whom Geki Tohja combines to form Geki BatTohja to battle the Flying-Ken in an aerial dogfight. The fight ends with Rūtsu slamming into the side of a mountain and Rasuka destroyed.

Meanwhile, after surviving Kata's training to channel his hatred, a bloodthirsty, berserk Rio attacks the Rinsis with rage to amplify his malice even more until Rio's hatred became new Rinki, to Mere's horror. That same hatred awakened Rūtsu as he emerges from the rubble of the battlefield with intend on getting revenge on the Gekirangers for the death of his partner.[14]

After watching a sparring fight between Rio and Kata. Mere offered to look and revive the other Kenma in Rio's place, as their training can help. Rio allows it as an irate Kata decides to further Rio's lesson with the aid of the "now-insane" Rūtsu. At SCRTC, Ran got angry at Jyan and Retu's lack of order until Rūtsu shows up in the city, again. While he fights the guys, taking two energy orbs out of them, throwing them to the ground. Geki Yellow attacks Rūtsu, knocking the orbs away. When Ran finds Retu after the fight, she's shocked to see him as an infant and Jyan is a young child. Xia Fu reveals the orbs to be the Pulse, a qi tied to a person's age and without it, the two have no memory of their older selves. But the two can find their Pulse, so Ran has to care for them as their mother until then. During this, Ran loses Jyan while changing Retu. She finds Jyan scaling a building, learning he was aiding a baby bird back to its nest with Jyan calling Ran "Howa-Howa". Rūtsu then appears, with intend to kill them in the most hateful way possible. The Gekiranger "family" runs away, eventually finding the Pulse orbs. Ran tries to fight Rūtsu, but she is unable to defeat him, until Jyan henshins into Geki Red and sends Rūtsu flying to protect his "mama". Ran used the power of motherly love to overpower Rūtsu's hate, then turning Jyan and Retu back into adults. A furious Rūtsu enlarged, only to be destroyed by Geki BatTohja. Soon after, Ran learns that Retu and Jyan have no memory while without their kodou, with Ran a bit sadden by it. While this was all happening, Mere is having trouble finding the Kenma' gravesites until it is revealed that her actual goal was not to just revive the remaining Kenma, but to replace Kata with a teacher for Rio who was more to her liking. Upon this revelation, a Kenma speaks to her, complimenting her about this, as well as informing Mere of her final resting place. Making her way to the beach on instructions, Mere managed to tear down the barrier and used the True Poison Fang, being blasted back on land by the shockwave of the resurrection of the revived Sea Kenma: Rin Jū Jelly-Ken grand mistress Rageku.[15]

The revived Rageku arrives at the Rin Jū Hall to meet Rio. However, much to Kata's distaste, Rageku favors Mere more than Rio. When Mere refuses to prove herself by fighting Rio, Rageku poisons Rio as her way to start Rio on the path of suffering and to start Mere's training with a foe of her choosing. Rageku then attacks the city and easily defeats Geki Tohja, with Xia Fu's appearance leading to a revelation on the origins of the Seven Kensei and the Three Kenma as the first Jūken Masters, until they assumed their current forms and founded the two opposing schools before the Geki -Rin Rebellion that led to the Demons' defeat. Rageku then forces Mere to fight Xia Fu, immobilizing the Gekirangers to ensure no interference. In order to win, Mere uses Infinite Waves on herself to fight at full strength despite her own internal pain. Rio watches while the poison courses through him, until he overpowers Rageku's Ringi and save Mere from sacrificing herself to kill Xia Fu. After a brief fight, Rio defeats Rageku, though she reveals that she was only testing him for his jealousy of Mere being able to overwhelm Xia Fu.

In order to combat Rageku, Xia Fu sends the team to the isolated Aozame Island to meet the Kensei Sharkie Chan, Grand Master of the Geki Jū Shark-Ken style. In a series of tests which comprised paddling a canoe through several traps, Sharkie becomes impressed by Jyan's strength and chooses him as his pupil for learning how to master his style and the Geki Sabers. In this training, Jyan becomes attached to his teacher, and they form a bond. Meanwhile, Rin Jū Hermit Crab-Ken user Dokariya closed in on the group's location, and uses his Ringi Base-Form Robbing Strike to take over Sharkie Chan to have him suffer as Rageku intended: By having him attack the Gekirangers. But Jyan's bond with Sharkie allows the Kensei to overpower Dokariya's Ringi, with an enraged Jyan using the Geki Sabers on the Beast-Man before the gang fires Geki Bazooka on him. When he becomes a giant, the Gekirangers call upon Geki Tohja and use Jyan's training to summon the Legendary Geki Beast, Geki Shark. They send Geki Shark at Dokariya, who is seemingly destroyed, only to be attacked by Geki Shark upon its return to everyone's shock.[17]

Shō Aikawa June 24, 2007
It is revealed that Geki Shark is possessed by Dokariya, and it takes an attack from Bat Li and Elehung to tell the Gekirangers to use Geki ElephanTohja to defeat Geki Shark for the time being. The two Kensei berate Sharkie, because they feel that he was not up to the task of teaching a student due to his ideals of a strong body being foolish, before Xia Fu arrived and suggested that they all go back to the group's campsite to try to continue the training. Sharkie tries to impress Elehung and Bat Li, but they further scold Sharkie's ideals, and he leaves, disheartened as he renounces Jyan as his student out of failing him. That night, someone uses one of Sharkie's swords to attack Xia Fu, and Miki assumes that it must be Sharkie, with Bat Li, Elehung, and the Gekirangers pursuing him. The next morning, the two Kensei, Retu, and Ran find/capture Sharkie, while Miki and Xia Fu clean up the campsite. While Xia Fu is distracted, Miki picks up one of tent's pins and charges at him, only to be stopped by Jyan who knew something was wrong all along. Dokariya reveals himself after being defeated in Miki's body by Xia Fu and then jumps into Jyan to use him to kill Xia Fu as Rageku wished. However, Jyan overpowers the Hermit Crab-Ken user and forces him out of his body, revealing that Sharkie's training allowed him to overcome the Ringi. Jyan then uses the techniques Sharkie taught him to defeat Dokariya with the Geki Waza Wave-Wave Slash. Dokariya then enlarges and jumps into the sea. But Geki Tohja follows by summoning Geki Shark and combine to form Geki SharkTohja. The battle underwater ends with Geki SharkTohja's Great Firm-Firm Slash destroying Dokariya. After the battle, Xia Fu approves of Sharkie as a true master, bringing the Kensei to tears. Back at the Rin Jū Hall, Rio reveals his one true rival to Rageku: a man with a "White Tiger" Geki named Byakko.[18]

"Gokin-Gokin! Rio to Taiketsu" (ゴキンゴキン!理央と対決) 
Michiko Yokote July 8, 2007
While Confrontation Toad-Ken user Eruka fights the Gekirangers, Rio undergoes a rite of passage to become even more powerful. Eruka is defeated by the Jūken Armament Triangle Attack of Geki Tohja armaments as Kata and Rageku give life to two statues in the Rin Jū Hall, the Confrontation Machine Soldiers Butoka and Wagataku, to assist Rio. When he arrives in the outskirts of the city, he challenges the Gekirangers to battle, assuming Black Lion form and using the Confrontation Machine Soldiers to keep Jyan and Retu at bay while he faces off with Ran. She does her best to try to defeat Rio, but not even her Geki Hammer Bullet-Bullet Ball nor her Mom-Mom Strike can defeat Rio. Retu then fights Rio with his Double Geki Fans, but his Air-Air Slash does nothing against Rio. With Retu defeated, Jyan enters the fray, unable to defeat Rio with either his Geki Saber Thin-Thin Slash or Wave-Wave Slash attacks. He then calls upon Ran and Retu to try to defeat Rio with the Geki Bazooka's Fierce-Fierce Cannon, but even it cannot harm Rio, as he sends an even stronger blast of Rinki at them, leaving Ran and Retu back in their civilian clothing. Jyan is left standing as he staggers towards Rio who uses the Brave-Roar Wave Ringi on Jyan that burns the remnants of his Gekiranger suit off. Rio attempts to finish Jyan off, but Jyan begins to burn with an intense white Geki as he attempts to give Rio a finishing punch. Before he can go through with it, he burns himself out and passes out, saying that Rio is "Gokin-Gokin." Rio recognizes this Geki as the same Geki as that of the White Tiger as Xia Fu shows up and explains that it is the Kageki. Xia Fu adds that it would be more of a victory for Rio to defeat the Gekirangers when they all obtain the Kageki. He agrees to go with Rio as his prisoner, and Rio gives the Gekiranger three days to obtain Kageki or Xia Fu will be executed. The Gekirangers have lost all hope, but Miki shows up later in the night to bring the team back into their senses. She tells them that they will have to be trained by the final three Kensei, who just have arrived to Japan, to achieve the Kageki.[19]

20 "Gicho-Gicho! Triangle Opposition Match"
"Gicho-Gicho! Toraianguru Taikō Sen" (ギチョギチョ!トライアングル対抗戦) 
Michiko Yokote July 15, 2007
To obtain the Kageki, the Gekirangers seek out the Kensei that will help them, but they are attacked by the very Kensei that they are looking for. The Gekirangers are defeated, and the Kensei introduce themselves: Gorie Yen of the Geki Jū Gorilla-Ken, Michelle Peng of the Geki Jū Penguin-Ken, and Bion Biao of the Geki Jū Gazelle-Ken styles. Miki then explains that they must compete with the Kensei of the Master Triangle in the Three Peaks Battle, three competitions based on each Gekiranger's own flaws. First, Jyan and Gorie Yen compete in a challenge of the "Heart" where the first to stack 500 yen coins on their edges wins. Jyan has difficulty, while Gorie asks him why he fights to which Jyan does not have a suitable answer. Gorie completes his stack, while an upset Jyan was too frustrated to get one to stand. Soon after, he and Retu fight due to the loss until Ran gets them to stop. Next, she competes with Michelle Peng in a challenge of "Technique" where they skateboard in two turns on a half pipe erected on the roof of SCRTC headquarters with an electronic scoreboard. Michelle performs multiple spins on her first turn, not seeing a need for a second. When Ran attempts the same challenge, she falls on her first try, but Retu's advice to mentally draw a picture in her mind allows her to ties with Michelle on the second try. The last competition is one of "Body" between Bion Biao and Retu, where they must grapple to take a bandana off of the other's arm. Retu attempts to use his Technique, but Biao counters easily. Jyan yells at Retu to forget about the techniques and beauty and just fight. The competition lasted until dawn with Retu managing to take Biao's bandana at sunrise. The Gekirangers win the competition, realizing that by supporting each other, they can do anything. While the competition had occurs, Xia Fu reveals to Rio that the factor of friendship will allow his pupils to obtain Kageki unlike Rio himself, who loses his temper upon hearing this fact and burns the cage with his Rinki, telling Xia Fu that he will face them now. Jyan senses Rio on the move as the Master Triangle provide the Gekirangers with the Super Geki Claws, which will allow them to access the Kageki, before they head off to face Rio.[20]

Though the Gekirangers completed their training, they have yet to obtain Kageki and Jyan is still disheartened by Gorie Yen's statement and starts rethinking what he is fighting for. But in spite of these facts, the trio made their way to Rio, whom Xia Fu asked why he wants to be stronger. While the fight occurs, Kata and Rageku are collecting Rinki from the people of the city with intend on destroying it once their student wins. Ran attempts to use her fast fists but Rio used the Jelly-Ken style to evade her attempt before swiftly defeating her. Retu tries his hand, but Rio uses the Flying-Ken style which Retu is unable to counter. Jyan attempts to fight Rio, again, but even with the Geki Sabers, he is not a match for Rio. With Jyan's Gekiranger suit burned off, Rio states to Xia Fu that it is his choice to be stronger that is his reason to fight. However Xia Fu reveals that deep down, Rio is still afraid of his past. Refusing to accept that truth, Rio attacks Ran and Retu, leaving them bloodied to Jyan's horror. It was then Jyan realizes that his true reason to fight is to protect everyone. This allows Jyan to finally use his Super Geki Claw and transform into Super Geki Red, negating the Kenma' attack on the city and knocking Rio into a cliff face. Mere sends the Confrontation Machine Soldiers to aid Rio, with Ran and Retu following Jyan's example and become Super Geki Yellow and Super Geki Blue. With their new power, Restu and Ran are able to destroy Butoka and Wagataku while Jyan deals a finishing blow to Rio, defeating him. As the gang pursue to free Xia Fu, Mere attempts to hold a furious Rio back. At Mere's behest, Kata and Rageku use the Rinki they gathered to reconstruct Butoka and Wagataku into giants. The Super Gekirangers call upon their new Super Geki Beasts along with the other Geki Beasts and they destroy Wagataku. Butoka is all that remains, and it absorbs its partner's Rinki before dissipating all of the older Geki Beasts. The Super Geki beasts then form Geki Fire to destroy Butoka. As the Gekirangers celebrate their victory, an enraged Rio realizes Jyan is the White Tiger's successor and is more intent on destroying them.[21]

Refusing to accept defeat, Rio sends out Mere to find the Ikigimo, with her enlisting Rin Jū Pig-Ken user Tabū. Meanwhile at SCRTC, Xia Fu calls in Sharkie, whom the Ikigimo was entrusted to.

Jyan found her and the gang tries to get the Ikigimo from her, but both Retu and Ran's offerings failed to get Alice's favor as she takes Jyan out on the town until he shows Alice the "Kyui-Kyui", or natural beauty of things. When he asks about her "Kyui-Kyui", Alice explains she has none. Jyan finds a large amethyst stone and gives it her, only for her to throw it away when he asked for the Ikigumo.

No sooner did the werewolf leave then Mārashiya arrive and the two Gekirangers fight him. Meanwhile, being a sukeban in her youth, Miki tracks Ran in an underground club, easily taking her down and dragging her back to SCRTC to force her to remember her heart and regain her oldself, allowing Ran to help Jyan and Retu, as well as have her use her Kageki to burn the Ringi off her. The Gekiranger managed to destroy Mārashiya by using Ran's experience as a Sukeban in the new Geki ElephantFire formation. While this all occurs, Maku overthrows Rio while showing off his Dorinki, which Rio is determined to learn at the cost of his dignity. A sadden Mere would leave the chamber and be confronted the mysterious Long, who offers her good news.

Learning the werewolf to be his older brother Gou, Retu confronts him, using his silver cross to identify himself. At the Rin Jū Hall, refusing to rely on Rio and Mere in his campaign, Maku calls upon his bodyguard, Hihi of the Rin Jū Baboon-Ken, to herald the new Fierce-Confrontation Rebellion. Mere, remembering Long's words, decides to follow Hihi to understand the cryptic news he told her. Back at SCRTC, Xia Fu reveals that Gou used a forbidden Geki Waza in an attempt to seal Rio. When he learns that Rio evaded the attempt and now leads the Akugata, Gou is angered at hearing the news. But Gou is more vexed that Retesu is a Jūken artist, leaving SCRTC in a huff and confronting HiHi with his Shigeki until the presence of a golden aura causes him to transform into a werewolf as the Gekirangers arrive. Retu stays with Gou to try to calm him down while Jyan and Ran go to fight Hihi. Once Gou becomes human again, he refuses to let Retu go after Hihi and brings him to the church where they grew up to remember the events of their last meeting: with Gou having Retu vow to never practice the Jūken and focus on his art. Gou then attempts to reason and then punch Retu, but both failed as Retu tells him that he has chosen his path long ago, before being informed by Miki that Ran and Jyan are in trouble. Gou chases after Restu, witnessing his fight against Hihi as Super Geki Blue, who realizes the error of his ways in preventing Retu from his true calling in seeing his fighting style. Though defeated, Hihi enlarged himself and was soon knocked off into the nearby mountain by Geki BatFire. Gou later apologizes to Retu, and they leave the battlefield. However, thanks to an upset Mere, Hihi regains consciousness and assumes a Dorinki-empowered form, attacking the Gekirangers in full-fury.[24]

Retu believes that his brother Gou will assist them as the new Gekiranger, but he refuses, revealing he does not fight for justice and showing his Shigeki as proof before leaving the SCRTC office. At the Rin Jū Hall, Rio is marveled by Hihi's new form as Mere reveals that Maku infused the Rinrinsi with his power, attempting to ask the Kenma to give some to Rio too. This resulted with Maku physically rebuffing her, as well as Rio's disappointment at Mere for suggesting that he takes the easy road. Mere leaves in tears, confronted by Long who tells her that Rio's greatest rival, Gou, would be an issue should he become a Gekiranger unless she kills him first. Gou visits a beach before being hit by the mysterious gold cloud and turns into the werewolf. But Natsume was there and managed to calm Gou down back to human form. Gou evaded Natsume only to run into Mere, telling her he has no intent to be a Gekiranger while defending himself until he has to save Natsume from an attack. Miki soon arrives and after Gou realizes that he has a sense of justice, he gains the GongChanger, an item commissioned by Xia Fu long ago. Using it, Gou becomes Geki Violet to defeat Mere. While this occurs, the Gekiranger battle Hihi in their regular forms. However, once enlarged, Hihi overpowers Geki Tohja and focuses his attacks on the right leg until Geki Violet arrives in Geki Wolf. When Geki Cheetah disappears due to Ran's own injuries, Geki Wolf becomes a replacement limb, forming Geki Wolf Tohja and defeating Hihi with the Geki Waza Great Wolf-Wolf Leg.

Rio reluctantly accept defeat and soon was in a cell while Maku ponders a suitable punishment. At SCRTC, though offered the SoZyuTo, Xia Fu allows Ken to keep it. However, the rest of the team scolded Ken for having sold it in the first place and his laidback nature. He escapes to meet Sachiko and give her a birthday present, noticing Mere watching him. Once Sachiko leaves, Mere demands the SoZyuTo from Ken, preferring to win it in a fight. But the other Gekirangers intervene and Mere leaves just as Jyan senses a "Zowa-Zowa". This leads the team to the new Chouda born from his parent's final Ringi and thus immune to the all attacks but Geki Chopper's. Just as he was about to finish the Beast-Man, Ken sees Sachiko, only to realize it is someone else who tells him that Mere kidnapped the real Sachiko and that she will be returned in exchange for the SoZyuTo. Knocking out Gou, Ken arrives to where Mere is holding his sister hostage, offering that they finish their fight to settle this. Mere accepts and over-powers Ken, who wins barely and Mere accepts defeat. However, Long's prodding forces Mere to send Sachiko to a watery grave and steal the SoZyuTo from Ken. Upon realizing what she has just done, she begins to burn Dorinki, much to Long's approval. After finding Sachiko saved by Gou, Ken and Gou arrive back at the battle with Chouda. The five Gekirangers overwhelm Chouda with their multiple attacks, ending with Geki Chopper's Many-Many Slash. When Chouda uses Wicked Body Overpowering Heavenly Change, the Super Gekirangers defeat him in Geki Fire.
