This article is about a/an set of mecha in Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger.

The Dial Fighters (ダイヤルファイター Daiyaru Faitā) are the mecha of the Lupinrangers.

Overview

Dial Fighters

Dial Fighters (Red, Blue and Yellow)

They are parts of the Lupin Collection that was given to the Lupinrangers to battle the Interdimensional Crime Group Gangler. They have multiple battle uses, such as to transform a civilian, in this case, a thief, into a Lupinranger (with a VS Changer), to attack, and to act as battle vehicles. It was also discovered that they can work with other pieces of the Lupin Collection, such as GoodStriker to increase their chances in battle, such as to form a giant robo.

A unique function of the Dial Fighters is that they can automatically decode and unlock the safes found on the Gangler Monsters.

History

Upon witnessing the apparent deaths of their loved ones at the hands of an alleged Gangler, each of the Lupinrangers were approached by a mysterious figure, an associate of Arsène Lupin, and tasked to use the Dial Fighters and VS Changers to find the other pieces of the Lupin Collection. Once the task is completed, the Lupinrangers have a chance to restore their lost loved ones. Number 2: International Police, Chase After Them

Enlarging their Dial Fighters, the Lupinrangers successfully eluded the Trigger Machines of the Patrangers. Later, when granted the power of GoodStriker, the Dial Fighters formed the Kaitou Gattai LupinKaiser for the first time, allowing them to destroy the giant Garatt Nargo.

Notes

  • This is the first mecha set since Timeranger  where the components are all aerial-based.
  • LupinKaiser (and the Dial Fighters that form it) sports a number of spinning dials one would find on a safe, circling back to LupinRanger's thief motif.
  • This is the first Sentai Robo since AbarenOh Nokodon to have a buzzsaw themed weapon for an arm
    • However, LupinKaiser is the first Main Sentai Robo to have a buzzsaw themed weapon as AbarenOh Nokodon is an auxilary formation.
  • The interior is similar to ToQger's ToQ-Oh (in terms of how the cockpit is set up and a character popping up at the Red Warrior's station).
  • The head design is similar to Maskman's Great Five .
  • The combination of the Scissor and Blade Dial Fighter is reminiscent of GaoElephant's combination with GaoKing, with the term Knight being similar to how GaoKnight also made use of GaoElephant.
