Gosei Sentai Dairanger

Gosei Sentai Dairanger was the seventeenth production in the long-running Super Sentai franchise of television tokusatsu dramas produced by Toei Company, following Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger. It was originally broadcast from February 19, 1993 to February 11, 1994. Toei gave this series the name Star Rangers for international distribution.

Elements from Dairanger were adapted into the second season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, specifically the action sequences between the giant robots (which became the Power Rangers’ Thunderzords) and the villains. None of the Dairanger costumes were used in Power Rangers, except Kiba Ranger’s, which was adapted into the White Ranger’s costume from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: the suits from Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger were instead used for the other Rangers in that show. (The end credits listed the show as titled Dai Rangers.) The Core Dairanger costumes in the footage weren’t used in Power Rangers until Power Rangers Super Megaforce.

Eight thousand years ago, the Daos civilization flourished in Southern China. The civilization consisted of three tribes: the Dai, the Shura (the ancestors of today’s humanity), and the Gorma (the military tribe); which lived in harmony. However, one day, the Gorma Tribe decided to take over the Daos civilization and the world.

Thus began the war between the Gorma and Dai tribes. The war between the Gorma, lead by the Gorma Triumvarate, and the Dai continued for 5,000 years until the Mythical Qi Beasts appeared to oppose the Gorma, whose Qi powers had increased to the point that they could turn themselves into monsters.

Five Dai warriors’ Qi powers had increased to the point where they could control the Mythical Qi Beasts. The war ended with the disappearance of both the Dai and Gorma tribes and the Shura scattered around the world. In the present day, the Gorma Tribe, one of the Daos’ two missing branches, arose to take over the world. To counter them, Master Kaku assembled a team of five youths with high levels of Qi, who became the Dairangers.
