"Gokai Blue!"
―Gokai Blue's roll call[src]

Joe Gibken (ジョー・ギブケン Jō Gibuken?) is Gokai Blue (ゴーカイブルー Gōkai Burū?) of the Gokaigers. He is Captain Marvelous' first officer.

Personality

A calm man, whose words are few. A compliment from this man is rare, a man with a serious personality who is hard on himself. Always training up his abilities with weapons, and never misses. Has known Marvelous the longest, and as such, he understands Marvelous the best out of the entire crew.

Biography

Zangyack

Zangyack Agent Gibken

Joe serving Zangyack.

Joe was once a member of the Zangyack's Imperial Special Forces. While training under the Zangyack, Joe was often forced to endure rigorous and abusive training. It was during this time that he also trained under Sid Bamick, his senpai, or mentor. Sid taught Joe many of the sword-fighting skills he used to great effect as Gokai Blue.

When ordered to execute a group of captive children, he blatantly refused and attacked his superior officers, letting the children run away. Because of his insurrection, Joe was taken prisoner and outfitted with an electric collar that could keep track of his every move and would emit an electric shock that could kill him, should he try to remove it. He managed to escape though, with the help of Sid. Unfortunately, his senpai was left behind.

Once on the outside, he continued to fight through hordes of Gormin and Sugormin that came after him with a Z=1,000,000 bounty on his head, unable to settle anywhere in one place due to the tracking collar on him. It was then that Captain Marvelous first noticed Joe. Slowly becoming overwhelmed by his attackers, Joe wasn’t about to give up, though his end was just about imminent. Then Marvelous appeared, offering to help him fight the Gormin and Sugormin off. Realizing that Marvelous was a space pirate, Joe warned him that he would get no money for saving him… and that was when Marvelous told him that it wasn’t money he wanted. He wanted Joe.

They fought off the Zangyack forces together, proving to be quite the combination. Afterwards, Joe told Marvelous about the collar around his neck, and how removing it could kill both of them. Still, Marvelous took it upon himself to pry it off of Joe with his bare hands. As they fell to the ground, Marvelous mades his intentions known to Joe (that he was searching for the Greatest Treasure in the Universe), and he accepts, thankful for what Marvelous had done for him, and vowing to stay with him until he achieved his dream. Marvelous passed him a Mobilate and the Gokai Blue Ranger Key. Ep. 11: The Serious Rebellion Ep. 12: The Guaranteed Showy Samurai

The Gokaigers returned to Earth in a quest spearheaded by Captain Marvelous with the goal being the treasure inside the Link Cube. As Marvelous acquired the treasure personally while Gai arranged for the legendary Sentai that had emerged since their initial departure to provide their Ranger Keys to assist them in battle, Joe and the others were sent to provide a distraction, guided by Navi into a confrontation with the four Zyuman members of the 40th and current Super Sentai, the Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger. Engaging the Zyuohgers so as to stall them, Gokai Blue fought Zyuoh Elephant one-on-one followed by his counterpart, Zyuoh Shark. Finding themselves overwhelmed by the Zyuohgers' Instinct Awakened modes, the Gokaigers selected from the Ranger Keys of recent years that Gai had acquired in order to turn back the tide of the battle, with Gokai Blue Gokai Changing into his counterpart from the Shuriken Sentai Ninninger.

Forms

Gokaiger suit

"Gokaiger!"
―Transformation announcement[src]

As the strongest of the Gokaigers, Gokai Blue specializes in melee combat, trading his Gokai Gun for Gokai Pink's Gokai Saber to wield alongside his own. When performing Gokai Changes, he typically transforms into previous Blue Rangers.

Arsenal

Mecha

Final Waves

  • Gokai Slash: Joe's preferred finisher. Inserting a Ranger Key into his Gokai Saber, Joe either performs an energized slash or flings an energy blade at an opponent. When performing the Gokai Scramble Team Attack, Joe performs a Double Gokai Slash with his and Ahim's Gokai Saber.
  • Five Sword Style: Blue Slash: An attack used against Action Commander Zodomas. Wielding all five Gokai Sabers at once (two in his right and three in his left) Joe inserts a blue ranger key into each Saber before slashing the air, creating manifestations of five previous Blue Rangers that attack the opponent before Joe finishes them off with a spinning double slash.


Main Article: Gokai Changes

As a Gokaiger, Gokai Blue has access to the powers of any past ranger. While there's the obvious preference for all 39 blue rangers, he has also been seen using other color rangers' suits and powers. He's also been known to take on powers of past female blue rangers, with the suit becoming a male version of its previous design.

Gokai Blue Gold Mode as seen on a Dice-O card.

Gokai-bluegold

Gokai Blue Gold Mode

As shown in cards, Gokai Blue, along with the other Gokaigers, can use Gai's Gold Anchor Key to become Gokai Blue Gold Mode. However, as it is Gai's key, Gokai Blue's Gold Mode is identical to Gokai Silver's Gold Mode, with the 15 Sixth Rangers rather than the past 34 Blue Rangers.


Summons

For attacks, Gokai Blue has been seen able to somehow summon manifestations of past rangers. He is the first ever seen doing so.

Ranger Key

Gokai Blue Ranger Key

The Gokai Blue Ranger Key.

The Gokai Blue Ranger Key (ゴーカイブルーレンジャーキー Gōkai Burū Renjā Kī?) is Joe's personal Ranger Key which allows him to transform into Gokai Blue. Whereas the keys of the 34 Sentai were created out of the sacrifice of their powers in the Great Legend War, the origin of the Gokaiger Ranger Keys is unknown, though it can be assumed AkaRed had a role in their creation.

As with the other Gokaiger Ranger Keys, this key is commonly used in the Gokaigers' Ranger Key-compatible arsenal and mecha for different functions and attacks.

This Ranger Key was turned into a Ranger puppet once, by Basco. Along with the other Gokaigers bar an incapacitated Marvelous, Joe confronted and defeated the puppet Gokai Blue. Ep. 48: The Fated Showdown

Bounty

After escaping from Zangyack, his bounty was at Z=500,000 when they recruited Hakase Ep. 42: The Strongest Man in the Universe , which was then raised to Z=1,000,000 before they reached Earth Ep. 1: The Space Pirates Appear . It then doubled after the Gokaigers hinder Zangyack's efforts on Earth. Ep. 5: Judgement Pirates This is then raised even further to Z=4,000,000 Ep. 15: A Privateer Appears and yet further to Z=8,000,000. Ep. 39: Why? We're High School Students

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Yuki Yamada and Yoshifumi Oshikawa

Joe's two actors: Yuki Yamada and suit actor Yoshifumi Oshikawa.

Joe Gibken is portrayed by Yuki Yamada (山田 裕貴 Yamada Yuki?). Prior to the series, he stated the series he wanted to become the most were the Kakuranger.

As Gokai Blue, his suit actor is Yoshifumi Oshikawa (押川 善文 Oshikawa Yoshifumi?), whose previous role was Gosei Black in Tensou Sentai Goseiger and later served as suit actor for Red Buster in Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.

Dub names

In the Korean dub of Gokaiger entitled Power Rangers Captain Force, which aired in South Korea, Joe as with the rest of the first five Gokaigers keeps his name (likely because they are not from Earth and thus don't have normal Japanese names), while his Ranger designation is Captain Blue.

Notes

  • Joe's proficiency in swordplay could stem from his surname: "Ken" (?) is the commonly used word for "sword" within the Super Sentai Series.

Counterpart notes

Gokai Change notes

  • Joe is the only male Gokaiger who has transformed into more than one female Ranger.
  • Joe's most transformed form was Go-On Blue with six transformations; by comparison Blue Racer, from another vehicle series, was his least transformed with only one transformation. Of his Blue Ranger counterparts, aside from the aformentioned Blue Racer; Blue Flash is also one of his lesser transformations, also with only one Gokai Change to this form.
