GaoTiger (ガオタイガー GaoTaigā): GaoWhite's totem Power Animal. Becomes a left arm part. Her formation special attack is called Tiger Attack (タイガーアタック Taigā Atakku), a punch attack that is usually used alongside GaoShark's Shark Shot.
See also: Elephant Wildzord
GaoElephant (ガオエレファント GaoErefanto): One of GaoWhite's additional Power Animals, his Gao Jewel was embedded within a stone found with a scroll in the Liewan Shinto Temple. GaoElephant rested within Gazou Mountain until he was awoken by Tetomu.
GaoElephant can perform a Hundred Beast Armament, turning himself into the Elephant Sword (エレファントソード Erefanto Sōdo) and the Elephant Shield (エレファントシールド Erefanto Shīrudo) for GaoKing to use as GaoKing Sword & Shield (ガオキングソード＆シールド GaoKingu Sōdo ando Shīrudo), using the finish attack being Powerful Bisection: Evil Crusher (豪力両断イビルクラッシャー Gōriki Ryōdan: Ibiru Kurasshā).
See also: Giraffe Wildzord
GaoGiraffe (ガオジュラフ GaoJurafu): GaoBlue's additional Power Animal. He was originally in the form of a crane and sent dreams to Kai where GaoKing was no match for Boat Org and that they needed the “spotted spear” to win. When the dream began to come true, Tetomu realized that a Power Animal was calling to him. When GaoBlue called out to the Power Animal, the crane he used earlier during their fight against Boat Org revealed its true form as GaoGiraffe.
GaoGiraffe can transform into the Giraffe Spear (ジュラフスピアー Jurafu Supiā), a right arm with its head is covered by a pointed helmet, adding the word Spear (スピアー Supiā) when used with the GaoKing, GaoHunter, or GaoMuscle formations.
Its finishing move is Demon Penetration: Neck Thrust (悪鬼貫徹ネックスラスト Akki Kantetsu: Nekku Surasuto), where his head is fired from his neck, and the enemy is pierced by its helmet. When combined with GaoHunter when he was evil, His attack was Spirit Penetration: Neck Thrust (精霊貫徹ネックスラスト Seirei Kantetsu: Nekku Surasuto).
GaoGiraffe made a cameo in Hurricaneger vs. Gaoranger.
GaoBear and GaoPolar
GaoBear & GaoPolar (ガオベアー＆ガオポーラー GaoBeā to GaoPōrā): GaoYellow's additional Power Animals (he carries the jewels but gives them to Blue and White when used) who originally appeared as mysterious boys in black and white respectively. After GaoYellow retrieved flowers for GaoBear and GaoPolar, they gave him two seeds that turned into their Gao Jewels. GaoBear uses the power of fire and transforms into a left arm part. GaoPolar uses the power of ice and transforms into a right arm part.
When added to another combination, Double Knuckle (ダブルナックル Daburu Nakkuru) is added to that formation's name and they would then destroy the enemy with the Bear Strike attack. If only one is used, Knuckle (ナックル Nakkuru) is added, as seen in episode 38 when GaoBear was added along with GaoKing.
Their specialty move other than Bear Strike is Whirling Frenzy (巴大車輪 Tomoe Daisharin), where the two join their feet together and rapidly spin towards the enemy when they are not in a mecha formation. As GaoKing Double Knuckle or as GaoMuscle, their finisher is the Ice Fang Blaze: Bear Strike (氷牙炎滅ベアーストライク Hyōga Enmetsu: Beā Sutoraiku), where incredibly powerful blasts of heat and cold are fired from the mouths of GaoBear and GaoPolar. While under Duke Org Loki's control, GaoHunter Double Knuckle used Spirit Blaze: Bear Strike (精霊炎滅ベアーストライク Seirei Enmetsu: Beā Sutoraiku).
When GaoBear and GaoPolar's finisher was first used, it had such a great recoil and power drain, GaoLion became sick, making him incapable to properly fight until the Soul Bird arrived.
See also: Gorilla Wildzord
GaoGorilla (ガオゴリラ GaoGorira): One of GaoRed's additional Power Animals. Becomes GaoMuscle’s upper torso and head. During the Gaorangers' journey to find the shining mushroom, GaoGorilla pulls them back in time to a period where a forest was still untouched by construction.
He was awakened by a woman that the Gaorangers befriend and he traveled back to the present time with the Gaorangers. Its special attack is Banana Bomb (バナナボム Banana Bomu), where he throws explosive bananas at the enemy.
See also: Soul Bird
Originally, Tetomu performed a ritual to turn the Kage Mushroom into the Gao Egg (ガオの卵 Gao no Tamago) that then hatched into a small blue bird that Kakeru Shishi named Pyochan (ピヨちゃん Piyochan). During the battle against Highness Duke Org Shuten, Piyochan matured into the Soul Bird to heal the Power Animals and help the Gaorangers defeat Shuten. Since then the Soul Bird has been used as the cockpit in the formations, at the command "Soul Drive, GaoKing!" or "GaoMuscle!". When used with GaoKing, Animal Heart is upgraded to Super Animal Heart, where the blast attack is not only shot from the Power Animal's mouths, but from a cannon inside the Soul Bird as well.
In Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai, the Super Animal Heart was enhanced by the power from the giant robots of the previous Sentai teams during the battle against Lost Highness Rakushaasa.
When the Vase Org had transported GaoKing and GaoHunter into another dimension, a feather from Pyo escaped and became Yo, an evil, red-eyed version of Pyo, while in place of the trapped Pyo, a pure good Pi was left. Eventually, Tetomu convinced Yo to help the Gaorangers and become the Soul Bird and GaoMuscle Striker was formed for the first time. After the Vase Org was defeated, the two Soul Birds became one again.

GaoWolf (ガオウルフ GaoUrufu): GaoSilver's totem Power Animal. Acts as a left arm part. Its formation special attack is Wolf Attack (ウルフアタック Urufu Atakku), whereas it is known as Blue Wolf Attack (ブルーウルフアタック Burū Urufu Atakku) in Blue Moon Mode.

See also: Hammerhead Shark Wildzord
GaoHammerhead (ガオハンマーヘッド GaoHanmāheddo): One of GaoSilver's additional Power Animals. Acts as a right arm part.

GaoLigator (ガオリゲーター Gaorigātā): One of GaoSilver's additional Power Animals. He becomes GaoHunter’s main body and feet. His tail combines with GaoHammerhead's dorsal fin to become the Ligator Blade weapon for GaoHunter.
GaoRhinos & GaoMadillo
GaoRhinos (ガオライノス GaoRainosu): One of GaoBlack's additional Power Animals. Becomes the lower torso and feet for GaoIcarus. He arrived after GaoMadillo gave their two Gao Jewels to GaoBlack.

GaoRhinos’ formation special moves are Rhino Shoot (ライノシュート Raino Shūto), Rhinos Kick (ライノスキック Rainosu Kikku) and Striker Bomber (ストライカーボンバー Sutoraikā Bonbā), where GaoMuscle Striker rapidly spins and delivers punches to the enemy.
With GaoKing Striker, his finishing move is Strong Flash: Rhino Shoot (強一閃ライノシュート Kyōshū Issen: Raino Shūto), where GaoMadillo crawls out of GaoRhinos and curls up into a ball that is kicked at the opponent like a soccer ball, whereas with GaoMuscle Striker, his finishing move is Strong Kick Blast: Rhino Shoot (強蹴爆砕ライノシュート Kyōshū Bakusai: Raino Shūto).
GaoMadillo (ガオマジロ GaoMajiro): One of GaoBlack's additional Power Animals, chanting "Madi" (マジ Maji). He, along with GaoRhinos, was summoned by GaoBison to help against Duke Org Loki after GaoBison was badly injured by Lawnmower Org. GaoMadillo originally appeared in a miniaturized form in the guise of soccer ball when it gave their jewels to GaoBlack.
When used in combination with GaoRhinos, GaoMadillo goes into GaoRhinos' right foot. GaoMadillo was once used by GaoKing Another Arm as a bowling ball for the Super-Fast Rotation Tornado GaoMadillo Spin (超速回転トルネードガオマジロスピン Chōsoku Kaiten Torunēdo GaoMajiro Supin) technique in order to counter Bowling Org's bowling ball.
GaoYellow usually borrows GaoMadillo's jewel when the Gaorangers form GaoMuscle Striker or GaoIcarus.
GaoKong (ガオコング GaoKongu): A red version of GaoGorilla that is the guardian of the island the Gaorangers were whisked to in the movie. Its Gao Jewel was formed when the two pieces of the ruby were joined on an alter during three simultaneous eclipses, and it was then awakened from the volcano. He attacks with flaming palm trees. It forms GaoKnight's head and torso. It doesn't have a Wild Force counterpart, but it was released in the Wild Force toyline.

In the past, Shirogane and Murasaki used to play music for him. But after Murasaki's throat was injured by some Orgettes, it became angry at Shirogane for failing to protect Murasaki and left. With some help from Tetomu, GaoSilver was able to play for GaoDeers once again and him gave Tetomu its Gao Jewel. Afterwards, Tetomu gave his jewel to GaoWhite.
