The Laughing Shadow-People (笑う影人間 Warau Kage Ningen) is the twenty-fifth episode of Choujin Sentai Jetman. This episode introduces the upgraded Dimension Beasts: Bio-Dimension Beasts.
Gai becomes the Jetman's only hope when their shadows come to life under the control of Maria's new Bio-Dimensional Beast.
Maria collects traits from several animals to help create her next monster. The outstanding animals are rabbit and armadillo. She puts it on the lights of a great field. So, when the creature shines its beam on its victims, their shadows become solid, and echo their movements. The Jetmen come to fight it, all except Gai, who was off doing something else. The creature catches our heroes all in its beam. But their shadows don't just echo them. They also begin to drain our heroes, and take on their own colors similar to the Jetmen's. Our heroes are knocked down and about to get sliced and diced, when clouds cover the sun and their shadow selves vanish. (I may have these events a bit out of order). Well, Maria comes back that night and uses her power to create a bubble of artificial daylight over the city, bringing out the evil shadows again. They start randomly attacking helpless people and destroying property. The other Jetmen are delirious, tossing and turning as they dream what their shadows do. Gai searches for Maria, because if he doesn't stop her before midnight, his friends are dead. He is almost caught by the shadows and the armadillo monster, but the other Jetmen arrive to fight a delaying action, still tough though barely on their feet. He sees Maria atop a building, but before he can get to her, Grey steps between them. Finally Gai is able to fire on her, and the night falls again just in time. The armadillo monster attacks Gai, but the others arrive in time to fight it off and together they defeat the monster.
