Engine Sentai Go-Onger vs. Gekiranger (炎神戦隊ゴーオンジャー VS ゲキレンジャー Enjin Sentai Gōonjā tai Gekirenjā) is the second film adaptation of the 2008 Japanese Super Sentai series Engine Sentai Go-Onger. Initially planned to be a V-Cinema release on DVD March 21, 2009, it was announced on December 7, 2008, that it would be released to Japanese theaters on January 24, 2009, to commemorate the fifteenth entry in the Super Sentai VS Series. The film features a team up between the characters of both Engine Sentai Go-Onger and its predecessor Juken Sentai Gekiranger. This is the first time that any Super Sentai series has had a film beyond the double-feature with the Kamen Rider Series film during the summer. In its first weekend of release, the film opened at #3 in Japanese box offices and earned the equivalent of US$964,079, showing on 292 screens.
The story begins when GekiRed battles Nunchaku Banki after returning from his trip around the world for Natsumi's birthday, with GekiYellow and GekiBlue arriving to provide backup. After sending the Gekirangers into another dimension, the Go-Ongers arrive before the Savage Machine Beast departs after his quarry. After clearing a misunderstanding with GekiViolet and GekiChopper, the two bring them to SCRTC to see Master Sha-Fu, with Hant revealing he met Miki at one of his past jobs at the Kyoryuya Curry Shop. After taking Sha-Fu to the site, realizing the Gaiark are after Dōkokugan, he opens the path for them to follow as the Gekirangers are overwhelmed by Nunchaku Banki, who demands the sealed Long from Jan. After the Gekirangers' reunion and meeting the Go-Ongers, they take out the Ugats and overwhelm Nunchaku Banki. In retaliation, he steals the Engines as the Pollution Ministers arrive with the mastermind of their scheme, Meka, who reveals himself as the last Confrontation Beast Hall user. Using the Engine Souls as his hostages, Meka tricks Jan in giving up the Dōkokugan to save the Engines before sending the Rangers back to their world. As Meka pounds the Dōkokugan into a Engine Soul that is implanted into Nunchaku Banki, the Gekirangers attempt to teach the Go-Ongers the ways of the Firece Beast Fist Style. Nunchaku Banki arrives to test his new-found power with Meka overseeing it to take in the suffering. The Go-On Wings arrive to take the two trouble makers out of the city before fighting them with what they learned from Gorie.
Although he was unable to endure Jan's teachings, Go-On Red runs to Hiroto and Miu's aid as he battles Nunchaku Banki and gets Speedor back with his newly-acquired Engine Fist. After mastering their own Engine Fist style, the other Go-Ongers arrive to support Go-On Red and GekiRed while getting back their Engine Souls. After scrapping Nunchaku Banki, the Pollution Ministers retreat to have Meka fend for himself. However, Long breaks from his seal, discarding his robot vessel with intent to get his revenge. However, the Go-On Wings arrive with the resurrected Rio and Mele to turn the tables as Long converts Nunchaku Banki into a new form for him to inhabit, Long Banki. While the reds and Rio battle Long Banki, Mele and the Go-On Wings deal with Meka before the teams use a Super-Super Special combo on them. Although Meka is destroyed, Long Banki enlarges with Engine-O G9 and GekiRinTohja Wolf fighting him; Bae was returning all the way from India only to see that a fight to give commentary on the battle. Although the teams are initially overpowered by the immortal, Engine-Oh G12 and Saidai GekiRinTohja are formed and manage to destroy Long Banki with Long resealed. After giving the Dōkokugan back to Jan, Rio and Mele depart for purgatory, with Rio telling Jan he hasn't forgotten his promise. The movie ends with both teams throwing a birthday party for Natsume later that night.
Continuity and Placement
- Gekiranger: Occurs after the final episode.
- Go-Onger: There are two major concerns with this movie: the Ancient Engine showing up in the climax (and forming Engine-O G12) and the factor of Land Pollution Minister Yogostein still being alive. In particular, G12 is first formed in GP 35, but the episode ends with Yogostein fusing with the Horonderthal, losing his main personality and killing Sosuke Esumi in the process. In GP 36, Sosuke revives, but does so while killing Yogostein. Unless you stretch elements of the story, particularly regarding Sosuke, the Ancient Engines and Yogostein, it can't occur in continuity.
New characters for the film are Confrontation Beast Tortoise-Fist Meka (臨獣トータス拳メカ Rinjū Tōtasuken Meka), an engineer and last surviving Beast-Man of the Confrontation Beast Hall, and Barbaric Machine Beast Nunchaku Banki (蛮機獣ヌンチャクバンキ Bankijū Nunchaku Banki), a Barbaric Machine Beast created by Meka who has the powers of the Akugata and the Gaiark.

- While this is the first team-up to be theatrically released since team-ups became annual events with Chouriki Sentai Ohranger: Ole vs. Kakuranger, the first team-up to be shown in theaters was J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai vs. Gorenger, 31 years prior to this team-up.
- Along with J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai vs. Gorenger, this is the only theatrically released team-up to not feature a cameo from the full upcoming team during the movie. Unlike J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai vs. Gorenger, Samurai Sentai Shinkenger was planned and expected at the time of this team-up's production and release while Battle Fever J was made a year after J.A.K.Q., which was planned as the last series. (Shinken Red does appear with GekiRed and Go-On Red, but it's after the credits, the rest of the Shinkengers are not present, and no battle takes place. The three Red Rangers merely tell the audience to watch Shinkenger, basically a commercial of the then upcoming show.)
- A poster for Go-Onger vs. Gekiranger is seen at TV Asahi in the television special Kamen Rider G, which was broadcast a week following the film premiere.
