|This article is about a/an army of grunts in Gosei Sentai Dairanger.|
The Cotpotros (コットポトロ Kottopotoro?) are Gorma grunts in black tuxedo tights with lipped but otherwise blank black and white faces. They would disguise as humans and serve virtually any Gorma, including The Three Gorma Stooges, serving as players in their various games. Usually equipped with bo staffs, they are also armed with swords and machine guns.In the finale, the Dairangers faced red-dressed Imperial Guard Cotpotros (近衛コットポトロ! Konoe Kottopotoro?) in the Gorma Palace.
Super Sentai World
The Cotpotros were one of five groups of revived Foot Soldiers along with the Batzler Soldiers, Grinam Soldiers, Golem Soldiers and Dorodoros, which were summoned by Zaigan in Emperor Daidas' invasion of Earth. The evil army was wiped out by a gathering of the five Super Sentai: Dairanger, Fiveman, Jetman, Zyuranger, and Kakuranger.
Several Cotpotros were part of an army of past enemy grunts that were fought by the Gokaigers in Los Dark's ghost dimension which housed the 1500 spirits of the villains defeated by the Super Sentai. After losing some of their number in an initial skirmish, the remaining members from each grunt group merged to form the Combined Combatant. Though the stronger opponent, the Combined Combatant proved to be unstable due to internal conflicting among the grunts composing him over who got to finish the pirates off. Taking advantage, the Gokaigers used the Battle Fever J Ranger Keys to destroy the Combined Combatant with the Penta Force cannon.
