This article is about a/an episode in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.

The Guaranteed Showy Samurai (極付派手侍 Kiwametsuki Hade na Samurai?) is the twelfth episode of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger. It is also the second part of a two-part tribute to Samurai Sentai Shinkenger, which began with The Serious Rebellion.


Joe goes off to face Barizorg alone in an attempt to make him remember his past as Kaoru assists the Gokaigers in their fight against the Zangyack Empire.


When Joe mysterious leaves, the other crew members worry about their crewmate as Captain Marvelous tells them to leave him be as he is confident that he'll return. Remembering the events that led to him leaving the Zangyack and Cid, Joe finds Barizorg's sword as the cyborg arrives to reclaim his weapon. Though he heard the truth about his origins, Barizorg refuses and defeats Joe before taking his leave as the pirate sees his friend is truly dead. On the Gokai Galleon, Kaoru learns how Joe became a pirate before Deratsueigar returns to Earth to carry on Warz Gill's orders to slaughter the Gokaigers for hurting him. Though Kaoru offers to help, Marvelous turns her down as he and others fight the Gormin and Sugormin with the power of various Sentai warriors before Deratsueigar defeats them.

After having an realization, Joe arrives to help after Kaoru gives him a Secret Disc to even the odds. The gathered team assume the forms of the Shinkengers to battle Deratsueigar, with Shinken Blue using the Secret Disc to fight with two Shinkenmaru before the pirates finish Deratsueigar off with Gokai Slash. Enlarged, Deratsueigar proceeds to destroy the city before overpowering Gao GokaiOh. However, using the Shinkenger Keys, Gao GokaiOh reforms into Shinken GokaiOh. After taking down an entire platoon of Sugormin, Shinken GokaiOh destroys Deratsueigar. Later, their Captain collapses from starvation as everyone else carries him to a place to eat while Joe says it is good to be home under his breath.

Elements/Homages to Shinkenger

Legend Shift ShinkenRed

Princess Shinken Red's Legend Shift

  • Like the previous episode, the title of this episode is entirely in kanji. This time, though, the key word is also part of the title of the series: "samurai".
  • The battle between Joe and Barizorg is reminiscent of the rivalry between Takeru Shiba (Shinken Red) and Juzo Fuwa, a fallen warrior who now continues to fight by the blade though his life has become altered by working for the villains.
  • Like the final battle of Shinkenger, Kaoru offers her assistance to the Gokaigers through a Secret Disk of the clan; however the disk she gives is the "Double" disk that Tanba gave to the team during their last battle with Dokoku Chimatsuri.
    • In both scenarios, Kaoru is no longer able to fight before the others head to combat: in Shinkenger, it's because of the massive damage she took during a failed attempt to defeat Dokoku; in Gokaiger, it's due to losing her own power in the Legend War.
  • The equivalent Shinkenger episode was the first episode the team gains a powerful combination, just like the Gokaigers gain their own.
