The Glory of Emperor Tranza (帝王トランザの栄光 Teiō Toranza no Eikō) is the forty-seventh episode of Choujin Sentai Jetman. This episode features the final battle between the Jetman and Emperor Tranza and the Vyram commander's horrifying fate.
Tranza hunts down the Jetman one by one in a final campaign to eliminate them, where Ryu gains an important ally in facing the self-proclaimed Vyram emperor!
Tranza is tired of fooling around. He will finish the Jetmen and Radiguet with his great gun. Maria is worrying about Radiguet. Where is he, she wonders, playing the piano. Tranza begins his attack, pursuing Ryu at Rie's grave. He chains Ryu to a cross and waits for the other Jetmen to arrive., In the battle, he fires his gun on Raita, turning him into a framed picture. His blast sends the other Jetmen flying. Ryu falls down a cliff. Chokan urges the others to flee. They run. Tranza follows. Radiege arrives at the bottom of the cliff. He picks up Ryu, gently dressing his wounds. Ryu, when he regains consciousness, has no idea who this man helping him could possibly be, and he's frightened and sure he needs help. Radiguet practically carries him up the cliffside, telling him that he also hates Toranza and wants to kill him. Ryu loses his footing, and Radiguet hangs on, ignoring the tearing of his skin on his hands. Ryu tells him to let go, but Radiguet refuses to give him up. Tranza has fun pursuing Jetmen around Tokyo, first catching Ako on a rooftop, then Kaori in a mall, and lastly Gai on motorbikes at an abandoned lot. That is where Radiguet and Ryu catch up with him, just a moment too late. Tranza mocks Ryu, and asks him who his friend is, which only frightens Ryu more. But Radiguet urges him on into battle. Ryu attacks Tranza, but soon is knocked over and Radiguet surrenders to an impulse to come to his aid. But Tranza threatens to kill Ryu and Radiguet stops, then begins laughing. And then he changes and attacks Tranza and Ryu. Ryu isn't an idiot, he knows Radiguet. He fights them both. Tranza's power is disrupted, releasing the other Jetmen. They blast him. Radiguet finds the bloody, burned and near-dead Vyram and torments him, forcing him to call Radiguet his lord. We last see Tranza in an insane asylum, covered in bandages. The doctors say no one has any idea who he is, he was found in a quarry, with his body seriously burned. They have no idea who he is. But he is prone to violent fits.
