The Space Empire Zangyack (宇宙帝国ザンギャック Uchū Teikoku Zangyakku?]) are the fictional antagonists of the thirty-fifth Super Sentai Series Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, that battle the Gokaigers in order to invade and conquer the Earth.

Fictional historyEdit

Zangyack's forces are a race of aliens who have conquered several planets across the galaxy and plan to invade Earth for their emperor. The first invasion failed due to the interference of 34 Super Sentai teams in the Legend War (レジェンド大戦 Rejendo Taisen?). The second, current, invasion is being overseen by the emperor's son Waruzu Giru from his chariot-like flagship Gigant Horse (ギガントホース Giganto Hōsu?), stationed between Earth and its moon, with an armada at his command.

The currency of the Zangyack Empire is the Zagin (ザギン?, Z=), which is how the bounties on the Gokaigers are measured.

Waruzu GiruEdit

Commandant Waruzu Giru (司令官ワルズ・ギル Shireikan Waruzu Giru?) is the young commander of the Zangyack invasion forces who is the emperor's son, thus attempting to earn his father's respect while showing himself as one of elite status. This gives him a paranoid attitude, making Waruzu Giru frequently hysterical when his missions are failures. He usually responds by erasing his mistakes to cover his tracks and lashing out at Damarasu. Eventually, Waruzu Giru learns of the Greatest Treasure the Gokaigers are looking for and believes it to be of little consequence, to the point of ignoring it to Damarasu's dismay. However, after an invasion he personally oversees is called off by his followers after a stray shot from Gokai Red wounds his left arm, a furious Waruzu Giru vows to kill the Gokaigers with extreme prejudice for his injury.

Waruzu Giru is voiced by Hirofumi Nojima (野島 裕史 Nojima Hirofumi?).


Chief of Staff Damarasu (参謀長ダマラス Sanbōchō Damarasu?) is known among Zangyack as the "Strongest High Ranked Soldier" (最強格の戦士 Saikyōkaku no Senshi?) due to his skills as a warrior and as a strategist. He is ordered to accompany Waruzu Giru by the Emperor and assist him as his second in command, questioning his decisions if he feels that he needs to. Unlike the others, Damarasu expresses curiosity on why the Gokaigers are even on Earth and uses the Sneak Brothers to learn the pirates' intentions on Earth. However, though he believes crippling the Gokaigers' chances of unlocking their Ranger Keys should be a priority, his suggestion is ignored.

Damarasu is voiced by Kōji Ishii (石井 康嗣 Ishii Kōji?).


Development Technical Officer Insarn (開発技官インサーン Kaihatsu Gikan Insān?) is Zangyack's evil scientist, supplying the Action Commanders with powerful weapons and modifications. Using a special gun-shaped controller, she can fire the Gigant Horseʼs enlargement cannons to resurrect defeated Action Commanders and make them grow giant. She rarely appears on Earth save when she falls in love with Kyousuke Jinnai and causes a series of bizarre events that end with her love redirected to Action Commander Jealousit until his defeat by Shinken Gokaioh.

Insarn is voiced by Kikuko Inoue (井上 喜久子 Inoue Kikuko?).


Special Duty Officer Barizorg (特務士官バリゾーグ Tokumu Shikan Barizōgu?) is a cyborg whose whole body is mechanized and completely loyal to Waruzu Giru. He speaks very little other than saying, "Yes, boss," to Waruzu Giru's orders. He was originally Sid Bamick (シド・バミック Shido Bamikku?), a senior officer and Joe's comrade while he was with the Zangyack. However, when he committed treason against the Zangyack by freeing the imprisoned Joe and covering his escape, Sid was converted into his current form with his pre-cyborg memories erased save for his swordsmanship. Though he learns the truth about himself, Barizorg's programming makes the new information of no importance.

Barizorg is voiced by Gaku Shindo (進藤 学 Shindō Gaku?), who previously portrayed the Eagle Sazer Ad in Chousei Kantai Sazer-X. Shindo also portrays Sid Bamick.

Basco ta JolokiaEdit

Basco ta Jolokia (バスコ・タ・ジョロキア Basuko ta Jorokia?) is a privateer who travels with his space monkey Sally on the allied Zangyack ship Free Joker (フリージョーカー Furī Jōkā?), his code of conduct being to discard something to get a more precious item. A former friend of Captain Marvelous, whom he affectionately calls "Mabe-chan" (マベちゃん?), they were members of the Red Pirates, serving under their captain Aka Red aboard the Gokai Galleon until he betrayed his comrades to the Zangyack in order to get the Ranger Keys and the Greatest Treasure for himself. Though he lost the chest to Captain Marvelous, Basco obtained the Ranger Keys of the Super Sentai sixth heroes (which include heroes such as Dragon Ranger, Abare Killer, the Go-on Wings, and Gosei Knight) which were still in space. He uses a trumpet-like device called the Rapparatta (ラッパラッター Rapparattā?) to conjure them to fight for him though he risks losing the Ranger Key if that hero is defeated. In addition, Basco carries a gold-colored Mobirates, which bears his personal symbol instead of that of the Gokaigers and has the keyhole sealed shut. Arriving to Earth after being contacted by Damarasu, Basco uses his Ranger Keys in a scheme to steal Captain Marvelous's crew, holding them ransom to get the remaining Ranger Keys. But the plan backfires as Captain Marvelous and his crew are able to defeat and claim the other Ranger Keys. Basco reveals that he has more Ranger Keys in his possession (which include Deka Master, Wolzard Fire, Signalman, Rio, Mere, and Princess Shinken Red) that Captain Marvelous does not know of.

Basco ta Jolokia is portrayed by Kei Hosogai (細貝 圭 Hosogai Kei?).


Sally (サリー Sarī?) is Basco ta Jolokia's pet space monkey, carrying a pair of cymbals much like a cymbal-banging monkey toy. Other than serving as a bodyguard to Basco, Sally is able to open up a hatch on its chest to produce a Liquidroid.

Sally is voiced by Toru Omura (大村 亨 Ōmura Tōru?).


The Non-commissioned Officers Zugormin (下士官スゴーミン Kashikan Sugōmin?) are the officers who lead the Gormin to battle and support the Action Commanders. They can transform into jet fighter configurations that link up into a hovercraft for an Action Commander to ride on, and can reconfigure their lower bodies into motorcycle forms.

The Zugormin are voiced by Yoshimitsu Shimoyama (下山 吉光 Shimoyama Yoshimitsu?, 1), Kenichiro Matsuda (松田 健一郎 Matsuda Kenichirō?, 10), Yasuaki Takumi (内匠 靖明 Takumi Yasuaki?, 10), and Kensuke Tamura (田村 健亮 Tamura Kensuke?, 12).


The Gormin Sailors (兵隊ゴーミン Heitai Gōmin?) are footsoldiers of Zangyack armed with weapons provided by Insarn. They are dropped from Zangyack ships through chandelier-like devices that magnetically hold them by their flat, metallic heads.
