|This article is about a/an an army of grunts in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.|
Gormin are silver humanoid robotic grunts who normally operate in squads led by a trio of Sugormin. They're armed with bladed cudgels that can be converted into rifles (the handle serves as the barrel and the club head as the stock and trigger) or as grenade launchers where the club head is fired as an explosive projectile. During the invasion of a planet, entire squads of Gormin are deployed from Zangyack ships via magnetic cranes which adhere to the Gormins' helmets and deposit them onto the ground. Aside from ground combat, Gormin are also the crew of Zangyack Battleships and while off duty are known to take part in recreational activities such as card games. Gormin are frequently the target of abuse at the hands of their Sugormin superiors.
HistoryThe Gormin first appeared on Earth in the Great Legend War. There, hundreds of them, led by dozens of Sugormin, fought against the past 34 Super Sentai teams. The Sentai teams put up a good fight and the Zangyack forces took a hard beating, but the Sentai Great Army's leader, Akarenger, noticed the fleet moving towards them, he gathered all the Rangers together and gave them the order to sacrifice their powers to wipe out the first invasion's armada .
When Hyuuga requested that Gai Ikari (Gokai Silver) give him the GokaiCellular, Gai envisioned him turning into Gokai Silver and defeating a group of Gormin . Basco ta Jolokia used a squad of Gormin, which were presumably provided by Damaras, to cause havoc across the city, in order to find Matsuri Tatsumi (GoPink) when she came to help so he could take the greater power of GoGo-V .

- "Gormin" is a play on gomi, "trash" or "garbage", which is why the Gorenger Hurricane ball transforms into a garbage disposal truck when the Gokaigers use the technique on them in the first episode.
