Gekisō Sentai Carranger (Extreme Rush Squadron Carranger) is the twentieth installment in the Super Sentai series, airing from 1996 to 1997. It's about a group of idiot workers at Pegasus Garage who use the power of car-shaped constellations to fight a group of idiot aliens called "Space Biker-Gang Bowzock".note Space Bosozoku Bowzock, "bosozoku" being the name for biker gangs. A comparatively punny name would be "Space Biker-Gang Byekagan".As the twentieth instalment of the franchise, it's a Affectionate Parody of Super Sentai and all the tropes it has, while being a full Super Sentai series in and of itself. At the time, Super Sentai was under serious threat of cancellation due to falling ratings, and popular opinion is that the executives simply did not give a damn and allowed the writers to do whatever the hell they thought they could get away with... resulting in a series so ridiculous, comedic and inexplicably popular that it saved the franchise.Adapted in the US as Power Rangers Turbo. They attempted to make a serious series out of it at first (using the most goofy monster suits and stock footage imaginable) but gave up halfway.The CarRangers: Kyousuke Jinnai/Red Racer: The Idiot Hero; He's a test-driver who usually ignores his duties just to drive his boss' car. Naoki Domon/Blue Racer: The Kid Appeal Character and Friend to All Living Things; He comes up with ideas on car designs. Minoru Uesugi/Green Racer: The Big Guy; A salesman who once lost part of his Accelchanger while practicing poses. Natsumi Shinohara/Yellow Racer: The Lancer; A mechanic with a legendary wrench. Youko Yagami/Pink Racer: The Chick; A weight-conscious Big Eater with No Sense of Direction.Their allies include: Dappu: The Mentor. A young alien boy from Planet Hazard who lost his mother during a Bowzock invasion. Signalman: A space officer from Planet Police who serves as the de facto Sixth Ranger. VRV Master: The (self-proclaimed) Lone Wolf of Space, who provides the rangers with the VRV Machines. He's also Dappu's father. Radiatta Fanbelt/White Racer: The (unofficial, self-proclaimed) Sixth Ranger, a Magical Girl with a car that can become a Mega Neko.And the "evil" Bowzock. Reckless Dash Emperor Exhaus: The Big Bad and the only real bad guy in the show. President Gynamo: The "Big Bad." Zonnette: The "Dark Chick." However, after she resumes her true form, she becomes the second Chick. Zelmoda: "The Dragon." Grotch: The "Evil Genius" who stumbled upon Imo-Youkan by complete and utter accident. Ritchhiker: The Sixth Ranger and The Starscream.

Eye Catch
 Gekisou Sentai Carranger / int_10839ed2
comment
Eyecatch: Both before and after the break, the eyecatch features a zig-zagging line, which is revealed to be the Vehicle (or vehicles if more than one are featured) of the hero of the episode which stops as "Carranger" appears on one of the straight lines of the pattern in English. In the post-break version, we hear a small piece of the Carranger theme in instrumental. The footage from these eyecatches were used in the second half of Power Rangers Turbo which makes the only Power Rangers season to also use the eyecatches from Super Sentai. From episode 32, the eyecatch changes: the same "zig-zag" and vehicle is seen at first, but only at the start of the eyecatch, where it opens into a split screen showing the Carranger tied to the color/vehicle, as well as both the vehicle and humanoid version of their VRV Machine.

 Gekisou Sentai Carranger / int_1248c438
comment
Finishing Move: Redefined with the RV Robo, which doesn't use an energy sword-style finisher - the RV Sword is, instead, something of a scaled-up Viblade. RV Robo dashes towards the Bowzock while the sky turns dark, starts spinning like a top, crashes into the Bowzock really-pointy-sword-first, then ends up in an awesome pose while the Bowzock explodes behind it.

Real Life Writes the Plot: More of a "...writes the characterization" - apparently Yoshihiro Masujima (Naoki) really was that overly polite during his audition, and Yoshihiro Fukuda (Minoru) really hailed from Osaka, so their characters were rewritten that way.

All There in the Manual
 Gekisou Sentai Carranger / int_18815207
comment
All There in the Manual: Parodied; the Carrangers themselves have to refer to the manual in mid-battle to figure out how the Formula Nova and Ranger Vehicles work. This has proven flawed at least once, when a copy of the manual once fell into a fire in the middle of a battle.

Perhaps the best example is when we're introduced to the Zokurangers as they go around committing the most heinous of crimes: ZokuRed (SS Paaman) shoots some flowers with his gun; ZokuBlue tramples a sand castle some kids were making; ZokuGreen scares off a couple bu bursting through a window; ZokuYellow steals a boy's popsicle; and ZokuPink soils clothes hanging out to dry with earth.

Make My Monster Grow
 Gekisou Sentai Carranger / int_3aa937cb
comment
Make My Monster Grow: The single silliest method of this in Super Sentai history: the Bowzock eat imoyoukan (a real Japanese snack food made from jellied sweet potatoes) to grow giant. Better yet, only fresh, hand-made imoyoukan (and from a PARTICULAR store, too, for even more comedy) makes them grow; factory-made pre-packaged and/or stale imoyoukan makes them shrink instead. Pre-packaged imoyoukan and its shrinking property becomes a Chekhov's Gun as it is used against the Big Bad in the final episode in order to depower him.

Humongous Mecha
 Gekisou Sentai Carranger / int_3aae8bc7
comment
Humongous Mecha: In addition to the heroes' mechas, there was also Braking, the dragon mecha Ritch Ritchhiker used after taking over the Baribarian. It notably gave the RV Robo a run for its money, forcing the Carrangers into getting new mechs. A Mech By Any Other Name: The Ranger Vehicles and the VRV* Victory Ranger Vehicle Machines (which could transform into humanoid forms called "VRV Fighters"). Combining Mecha: Notable for having the only Super Sentai mecha combination to date that is made up entirely of transforming robots. Also notable is that RV Robo and VRV Robo's limbs are interchangeable, a combination scheme that would later become a staple of Sentai robots in the 00s. Red Vehicle + Green Vehicle + Blue Vehicle + Yellow Vehicle + Pink Vehicle = RV Robo V Fire + V Dump + V Police + V Dozer + V Rescue = VRV Robo Transforming Mecha: In addition to the aforementioned VRV Machines, Signalman's Sirender patrol car could transform into a robot as well, while the Vic Trailer, the giant trailer that stores the five VRV Machines, can transform into a robot that supports the VRV Robo in combat. White Racer's Radiecar Robo (which transforms from a car into a Mega Neko) is a parody of this concept.

Shout Out: SS Paaman's attempted final attack when giant-sized is a amalgamation of all the previous series' Humongous Mecha' attacks - he gets about halfway through before getting a Gekisou-Giri from RV Robo. "THE NAME'S TOO LONG!" *cutcutcutcutcutBOOOM* The main villain wants to destroy Earth to make room for a space bypass. Braking had a weapon called the King Slugger where it would detach the sharp fin on its head and throw it at an enemy.

Villain Song: The show's ending theme is an upbeat song sung from the point of view of the villains, about having a chance to relax after a tough day of getting beaten by the heroes, and wondering if maybe the good guys can let them win next time.

The Psycho Rangers
 Gekisou Sentai Carranger / int_61843a41
comment
The Psycho Rangers: Bousou Sentai Zokuranger, brought together by Bowzock's #1 hero researcher SS Paaman. Notable for: 1) consisting of barflies aside from SS Paaman 2) Not resembling the heroes in the slightest and 3) getting their own version of the opening song. To a far lesser extent, when ZZ Gyuuri and four Wumpers board the stolen RV Robo, the Wumpers correspond to the colors of the usual pilots (with the white Wumper taking Yellow Racer's seat). The blue Wumper even does Blue Racer's Diagonal Spark pose before firing it.

Secret Identity
 Gekisou Sentai Carranger / int_64e59936
comment
Secret Identity: At no point does it seem like they're making an effort to do so on purpose, but the Carrangers' human identities are kept secret - in fact, everyone except Dappu and VRV Master thinks they're aliens. (This is apparently a case where everyone believes the Carrangers are too strong to be human - Dappu out-and-out introduced them as such to the Bowzock in the first episode.) Furthermore, this is the first show in the Super Sentai series to actually bother keeping their identities a complete secret. Amusingly, it's also the one that keeps it best, with no outside characters finding out until the end.

Transforming Mecha: In addition to the aforementioned VRV Machines, Signalman's Sirender patrol car could transform into a robot as well, while the Vic Trailer, the giant trailer that stores the five VRV Machines, can transform into a robot that supports the VRV Robo in combat. White Racer's Radiecar Robo (which transforms from a car into a Mega Neko) is a parody of this concept.

Poke the Poodle: The villains are a gang with no regard for traffic laws. Perhaps the best example is when we're introduced to the Zokurangers as they go around committing the most heinous of crimes: ZokuRed (SS Paaman) shoots some flowers with his gun; ZokuBlue tramples a sand castle some kids were making; ZokuGreen scares off a couple bu bursting through a window; ZokuYellow steals a boy's popsicle; and ZokuPink soils clothes hanging out to dry with earth.

Law of Chromatic Superiority: The Carrangers don't really have a leader within their Five-Man Band - Dappu (and briefly, VRV Master) basically points them in the direction of the Bowzocks when they appear - until about halfway through, when VRV Master finally gets this into Kyousuke's head. He then gets hepped on the idea, takes it a bit too far, and eventually recovers the stolen RV Robo by himself.

In keeping with Carranger's parodic nature, he also likes to do typical "Oyaji" stuff, like Pachinko (in which he apparently does very well), drinking coffee milk, and getting shaves at the barber. Daily. Despite pretty obviously not having any hair.

comment
Good Is Not Nice/Jerkass: Though they usually mean well, the Carrangers are probably the most genuinely unpleasant people to wear the rainbow colored spandex (except maybe Captain Marvelous and Luka Millfy...). Notable in that they are probably the only Sentai to actually fight against another in a teamup movie for reasons besides mistaken identity or Mind Control by a Kiss of Death from the cyborg Shibolena (they went and kidnapped a magic fairy because they wanted a wish, and the Megarangers had to rescue it). To be fair, what they wanted to wish for was a spaceship to visit all their alien friends, and they didn't know the Megarangers to be anything more than high school kids.

Hey, It's That Voice!: Kyousuke is Hibiki-Sensei!. And his favorite move is Shoryuken! More importantly, Gynamo (Hiroshi Otake), the boss of the Bowzock... is BOSS . If you don't obey traffic laws, Signalman is either gonna violate you or make you learn to like shiitake. For some reason, you expect VRV Master to either whip out a notched hat and revolver or give the Carrangers the Key(s) to their Victory... Ranger Vehicles.

Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?
 Gekisou Sentai Carranger / int_a528cde3
comment
Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Minoru used to be afraid of lightning after being shocked by an electric eel as a child. He got over it. Interestingly, Zelmoda too has the same fear. We don't see him recover, though.

Space Is Noisy: One villain's plan to destroy Earth is to levitate the cars into space and make so much noise with them that nearby aliens will attack Earth to stop the noise.

Lucky Translation: The title of the resident Psycho Rangers, the Bosou Sentai Zokurangers, comes from the Japanese word for motorcyle hooligans, but also sounds like the English word Bozo, which they are.

comment
It Is Pronounced Tro-PAY: In-universe, due to the way they introduce themselves, it's not pronounced "Carranger" - the majority pronounce it "Caaaaaaaaarranger!". Lampshaded in episode 12, when Signalman pulls Red Racer over for speeding and asks his name: And a few seconds later, when Kyousuke's teammates come in a rush to stop him from beating Signalman up: The aliens - all of them! - pronounce it Chiikyu, not Chikyuu (Earth). (The Carrangers give up correcting them early on.)

 Gekisou Sentai Carranger / int_bde23742
comment
Team Dad: VRV Master leans towards this in contrast to Dappu. (A neat bit of Foreshadowing too, since he's actually Dappu's dad - although just how, exactly, he fit his head inside that helmet is never answered .) In keeping with Carranger's parodic nature, he also likes to do typical "Oyaji" stuff, like Pachinko (in which he apparently does very well), drinking coffee milk, and getting shaves at the barber. Daily. Despite pretty obviously not having any hair.

Death by Origin Story
 Gekisou Sentai Carranger / int_bfd67c2c
comment
Death by Origin Story: Subverted in the very first episode; after Dappu fails to recruit the future Carrangers, he dies at the hands of Bowzock. This motivates them to avenge his death; turns out Dappu faked his death to get them to do so. He even gets up right away and scolds the newly-motivated rangers for not cooperating earlier.

 Gekisou Sentai Carranger / int_c3c846ec
comment
Unusually Uninteresting Sight: A hallmark of the series - unless they're actively causing trouble, very few people ever seem to take more than casual notice of the Bowzock. All the more notable when Ritchihiker pulls The Starscream on Gynamo, and he and Zonnette spend the next few episodes doing varied stuff on Earth (even getting jobs at a pachinko parlor - the same one that VRV Master attends, to boot!). Glatch, for example, goes out and buys the Imoyokan himself. This is after he himself grew to giant size and stumbled about town.

Dating Catwoman: When Kyousuke realizes Zonnette likes him (but not that she likes Red Racer, regardless of who is wearing the helmet), he decides to try and make things right between them. It doesn't work at first. Gets a funny Call Back fifteen years later when it's Insarn who falls in love with Kyousuke, in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.

Combining Mecha: Notable for having the only Super Sentai mecha combination to date that is made up entirely of transforming robots. Also notable is that RV Robo and VRV Robo's limbs are interchangeable, a combination scheme that would later become a staple of Sentai robots in the 00s. Red Vehicle + Green Vehicle + Blue Vehicle + Yellow Vehicle + Pink Vehicle = RV Robo V Fire + V Dump + V Police + V Dozer + V Rescue = VRV Robo
