"Gokai Blue!"

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 sempai, 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 sempai 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

As a Gokaiger, Gokai Blue has access to the powers of any past ranger. While there's the obvious preference for all 35 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 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

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.
