Lavender Ranger's view on Gender Changing Extra Heroes and the Shinken Red Keys

When it comes to the two Shinken Red keys, I don't think Toei wants that much of 'poking holes,' like looking too much into logic.  I think its just for fun. The point of the Hime Shinken Red I see realistically in Toei's stand-point is just to show off the first female red ranger, regardless that she has the same powers of her male counterpart. I don't think we will ever see Gokai Red, Gokai Blue, Gokai Green or Gokai Silver use the Hime Shinken Red key. I think the highlight of the keys is exactly whats going to happen in Ep 41---Shinken Red and Hime Shinken Red AT THE SAME TIME which we have never seen before. I think that is the main reason they made the two keys. Because plenty of people have been asking since Hime Shinken Red had been revealed to have a key to what is the point if she has the same powers as the male Shinekn Red and that the female Gokaiger can use the male key.

Now as for gender changing the Extra Heroes, there is no way to gender change Rio, Mele, Wolzard, Kuro Kishi, DekaMaster and DekaSwan. I can kind of see Magimother and Signalman gender-changing but I don't think it'll happen. I don't see a change in Mele because she has a female figure, the breasts and various other things. A skirt on Rio would look silly. DekaMaster and DekaSwan fall under the thing that Dekarangers have no skirts. Wolzard kind of alreayd has a skirt of sorts so it would look weird. Kuro Kishi with a skirt would look strange, as GoseiKnight too, hence we never seen a female GoseiKnight. Even though their teammates (GingaPink, GoseiPink, GoseiYellow, respectively) have skirts, their suits are radically different that it could fall in the realm that they can't gender change.

Signalman has a wife Sigue that has an apron and earrings, so a female Signalman theoretically could happen but that would too fan-indulging I suppose, a fringe sector of the fandom.

And as for Zuuban, it goes with the Dekaranger/Changeman/Bioman/Fiveman, etc. logic that if the females didn't have skirts to begin with, then when they gender change, the suit wont have a skirt. Since Zuuban has no team counterpart, it remains the same, also I see Zuuban as genderless, it was just an it, not really a he or she. I don't think he can reproduce. He sounded male, but again, poking holes. So I don't think we will see gender-changing Extra Heroes because that is too much hole-poking.

Gokaiger 40 and 41 Preview

Domon's hologram comes out of his badge

Gai uses the Black Knight (Kuro Kishi) key to use this special attack:

 The Gokaiger take a picture with the boy and his mom, she might look familiar...

Thanks to xzomega. It seems that Ninjaman wasn't in the Legendary War hence no key. We will see how this develops in the Kakuranger tribute episode, which hasn't been officially announced, it might be episode 43 or 44.

 In the future, Domon gets a  letter from Gai with the picture of his love and their son, he cries.

I loved Timeranger and this was a great shout-out to fans. When I saw the last ep and found out that Domon's girlfriend had a baby, I thought it was unfair to the baby that he would never see his dad but I was intrigued by his existence. So when I found out Gai had to be with this kid, I made the connection and hope the rumor was true. It was really great and touching.

Episode 41:

Pink Charge!

Ahim focus ep, it seems she transforms into Go-On Silver and Kuwagata Raijer with an unknown male partner, I also saw her as Hime Shinken Red. So maybe she is male-female duos because she also becomes DekaSwan and the other guy becomes Deka Master, so most likely we will see both Shinken Reds in this episode. My guess is each male partners with her, like Joe/Blue is DekaMaster, Gai/Silver is Go-On Gold, Don/Green is Kabuto, and Marvelous/Red is ShinkenRed.
