The Ohrangers[edit]

The Ohrangers (オーレンジャー?, Ōrenjā) are a group of five soldiers from the UA who battle the Machine Empire Baranoia. They were originally normal humans until their body chemistry was slightly altered to utilize Chouriki (超力?, Chōriki, Super Power), a form of energy used by an ancient civilization dating back to the time when all the continents were Pangaea. Their special team attack is Chouriki Dynamite Attack (超力ダイナマイトアタック?, Chōriki Dainamaito Atakku), where the Ohrangers perform multiple mid-air flips and change into an energy ball that destroys Machine Beasts. Their surname bears the number of corners (or in Momo and Juri's case, a circle which has no corners and a = which is just two lines) of their visor's shape, except for Goro's whose surname reflects the shape of his visor (which is a star).

Goro also appeared in Gaoranger Vs Super Sentai Along with his fellow Red Rangers from Akarenger to Time Red.

Goro appeared years later in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, where he and his partner Momo created a distraction for the Gokaigers while Goro attempted to negotiate with Basco to gain the location of the Zangyack army.
