Upon learning that Gali-sensai had only joined the Yokai to save his daughter's life, Jiraiya realized how willing the yokai were to use human suffering to their own advantage and found new purpose in fighting them.
Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai
Years later, Super Stealth Beast God Saruder appeared as part of an army of robots, animals, jets, machines and vehicles belonging to the first 25 red heroes. As anticipated by Soukichi Banba (Big One), they were led by Akira Shinmei (AoRenger) and Chief Counsellor Naoyuki Miura to help fight Lost Highness Rakushaasa.
PLEX designed Kakure Daishogun. Its design is based on lightly armored ninja, most evident in the vented headgear and barefoot/sandal-like foot design. It also utilizes add on pieces that reflect two basic types of hand attacks, the fist and the closed palm. Its design as a secondary mecha - a quicker, more streamlined alternative to the Muteki Shogun. The Frog, Wolf and Bear have a simplistic streamlined design, much like old Japanese art, while the Crane recalls the look of origami (paper cranes). Saruder on the other hand is a more direct representation of the legendary Monkey King, which last inspired the design of the Mythical Chi Beast RyuseiOh.
- Kakure Daishogun could combine with the Holy Stealth Beast Tsubasamaru to become Super Kakure Daishogun.
