(Paraphrased from a transcription from Dukemon)
A huge fantasy work created on a magnificent scale; "OhSama Sentai King-Ohger" is born! The title will use the "abstract symbol of the word Ohsama"; a story where the heroes have overwhelming power and protect the peace. Fighting together with them against their enemies and to protect people are "Bug Motif Robos." The Heroes are ALL KINGS! The leaders of five countries are gathered, and the strongest heroes are born! The point, in short, of this work is that all five of them are kings, and all the characters are deeply constructed.


Henshin Ken (Transformation Sword) OhjaCaliber- A sword used to transform into a King-Ohger, "bearing the proof that one is a Ruler." KingsWeapon- A transforming shield weapon shared by the team.

KingOhger- The King-Ohger's first robo formed from the "ShuGods" (Shugo, protect + god), bug-type mechanical life forms that act as the Earth's protector gods. Every King from the different countries using the OhjaCaliber is able to communicate with their ShuGod and ensure the country's protection. KuwagataOhger's is "GodKuwagata"; TonboOhger's is "GodTonbo"; KamakiriOhger's is "GodKamakiri"; PapillonOhger's is "GodPapillon" and HachiOhger's is "GodHachi." What's more, they combine with "God Tentou" (2 ladybugs), "God Kumo" (2 spiders) and "GodAnt" to form into the robot, KingOhger. 

Fans are confused if PapiilionOhger's gender, could be they are nonbinary. Recently a Toei producer said there could be an openly gay character and there have been effeminate characters in Kamen Rider mostly. Kazu of Dairanger was effeminate and a hairdresser. Some sources say PapilionOhger is physically a man. A lot of the poses, the color, and the visor look feminine. I never thought there will be a Lavender Ranger, the suit color does look more light purple (which is Lavender) than the previous Violet.
