Impatience Rewarded: Presenting Gokai Silver

UPDATED 2/6/11
Gokai Spear
I was impatiently looking for the Sixth Ranger info and a few minutes later rewarded with pics on the new sixth ranger. Gokai Silver that becomes "GokaiSilver Gold Mode". Gold Mode will be sold as #7.

I knew he would be silver. So I guess Bull Black is officially not considered a Sixth Ranger. I am sad that the first ever sixth, Mask X-1 is not included.

So now there are 6 'Silver Warriors' since Toei counts Gosei Knight as silver. Him being Silver confirms the theory that all anniversary 'seasons' since 2001 we get a Silver Ranger. Gokai Silver has on his chest 5 Silver Rangers, 3 White, 3 Gold, 2 Green, 1 Black and 1 Red.

Left Shoulder: Gosei Knight, Bouken Silver and King Ranger

Right Shoulder: Mega Silver, Kiba Ranger, and Go-On Silver

Chest top: Abare Killer, Dragon Ranger, and Time Fire

Chest center: Shinken Gold, Shurikenger, MagiShine, Go-On Gold

Chest Bottom: Gao Silver, and Deka Break
I am glad that Go-On Silver is included.

Gokai Cellular

First Row: GoseiKnight, GokaiSilver, Kibaranger

Second Row: Bouken Silver, Dragon Ranger, Mega Silver

Third Row: King Ranger, Go-On Gold/Go-On Silver, Shinken Gold

Fourth Row: Shurikenger, Abare Killer, Magi Shine

Fifth Row: Gao Silver, Time Fire, Deka Break
Seeing that the cellular has Go-On Silver and Go-On Gold on the same key, most likely Go-On Silver will magically appear next to Gokai Silver as Go-On Gold.

Goranger Ranger Keys

Steps for transforming:
1). Insert Ranger Key (In Ranger Form)
2). Press corresponding button
3). Push the top of the phone, causing the reader (the red anchor thing) to move down over the Ranger Key, reading it. SFX Sounds.

Some people are complaining that GoseiKnight is counted as a sixth ranger because he wasn't human, and in build, he is a lot like BullBlack, but promotionally he was considered a sixth ranger and that's the way it is. Technically Shurikenger had no human form we saw, because after he became Shurikenger, he lost his human face. And with the 15 helmets on his chest, he is being compared to Decade Complete Mode.

Just for geeks, here are the Sixth Ranger names for American Power Rangers Terms:
Green Ranger, White Ranger, Gold Ranger, Silver Ranger, Quantum Ranger, Lunar Wolf, Green Samurai Ranger (PRNS), White Dino Ranger, Omega Ranger, Solaris Knight, Mercury Ranger, Ranger Gold, Ranger Silver, and Gold Samurai Ranger.

Did you notice that the 3 that are in the chest of the golden armor are the warriors that died

Lavender Ranger said...

No I did not notice that Manuel. True.

if goukaiger was used for power rangers i think only gokai sliver could be completely used

I'm guessing the reason why Big One is a form assumed by Gokai Yellow and not Gokai Silver is probably because Big One was introduced way before the sixth member concept became a regular trope in the franchise. As for why Gokai Pink can't become Abarekiller, it probably has to do with the fact that he was a second addition to the team (like Shurikenger and the Go-on Wings) and was way too different from the other Abarangers (especially due to the fact he was mostly a villain for most of the series), which makes him a bit closer to a typical sixth ranger.

Does anyone think the armor for GokaiSilver's Gold mode be used for the other rangers? Its just curious to have a rangers to have armor with past rangers' heads on it.

It would be nice if X-1 Mask got a nice tribute cameo somewhere this year. He's got a really great design, but I'm not surprised he's excluded from GokaiSilver's complete mode. X-1 Mask is the ultimate interesting footnote.

The only surprising exclusion for me is BullBlack.

Lavender Ranger said...

Yeah, I think the reason AbareKiller was included as a sixth is because he was for the most part a villain, he wasn't part of the Abaranger, he helped them all the way until the end. And yeah, he acted more like one. Big One was part o the team and even leaded it.

Mask X-1, probably yes, a footnote.

As for Deka Master, they probably they didn't want to pair them up like DekaBreak; Go-On Wings was more of a duo. Maybe they are saving DekaMaster for something else.

You'll notice there are no characters that served in a mentor capacity in GokaiSilver's form roster. That definitely affects Ninjaman and DekaMaster, and to a lesser extent, VRV Master and Signalman.

The way he wears those faces on his armor kinda makes him look like the love child of Decade Complete Form, HyperGoseiGreat and Ron from GekiRanger....

I find strange that GoseiKnight is considered a ranger; I always thought of him as an extra hero, like Ninjaman, Signalman or Zuuban. BullBlack at least was human. BTW, why do you say that GoseiKnight is considered a silver ranger.
