"Appear! Daizyujin!" "Invoke, Daizyujin!"
Daizyujin (大獣神 Daijūjin?, Great Beast God): The combined form of the five primary guardian beasts, who first combine into the Beast Tank Dino Tanker (獣戦車ダイノタンカー Jūsensha Daino Tankā?) and then transform further into Daizyujin. Rather than a mere robot, Daizyujin is actually a physical incarnation of the Ruling God of the five tribes. As such he has his own will and will occasionally give challenges or suggest the right actions for the Zyurangers to help on their quest to be real heroes.
First appearing in episode 6, Daizyujin was shown to Geki during a vision of a post-apocalyptic future that Bandora would bring about if she were victorious. Under the instruction of Barza, Geki sought out the Dinocrystals (the key to combining the guardian beasts into Daizayujin) and after freeing his comrades from the trees Dora Sphinx had trapped them in along with several children, the five Zyurangers combined the guardian beasts into Daizyujin to defeat both Dora Sphinx and Grifforzer before the children Dora Sphinx had imprisoned could be cut down by a construction crew.
When Burai was revived and given the Sword of Hellfriede, Daizyujin told Geki to kill Burai. Geki refused and Daizyujin was forced to punish him for letting his personal feelings override his duty as a Zyuranger. All was soon resolved when Geki finally managed to reach Burai's heart and Burai's tears destroyed the sword whereupon Daizyujin officially announced that Burai would be the sixth Zyuranger. Prior to Burai's redemption, Bandora had learned of a prophecy of Daizyujin's defeat and Grifforzer, Lamie Scorpion, and Burai worked together to hurl him into a lava pit as a solar eclipse had cut off Daizyujin's power. Fortunately, the prophecy had only foreseen Daizyujin's defeat rather than his death and after using the energy of the lava to reenergize, Daizyujin returned in time to stop Dragon Ceasar from destroying the city while under Burai's control. After the destruction of Dora Talos and the death of Kai in the finale, Daizyujin trapped Bandora and her lackeys in a golden vase and banished them back into the depths of space.
In battle, Daizyujin wields the Mammoth Shield, which can fire energy beams from its eyes and the Dinosaur Sword Godhorn, which he uses in his Super Legendary Lightning Cut finisher. He can also fire energy beams from his eyes and from the crown on his forehead. Despite being a god, Daizyujin was far from invincible as it was revealed during the battle with Satan Franke that in the initial battle with Dai-Satan, Daizyujin's true form had been split into three lesser aspects (Daizyujin, Dragon Ceasar, and King Brachion). After the Zyurangers performed a ceremony at an ancient alter where they "gave voice to their mission" Daizyujin's full power was restored, enabling him to fight the new and more powerful Dokita-Dora Monsters on an equal level as well as to combine with Dragon Ceasar and King Brachion to form Zyutei and Ultimate Daizyujin,
The five core guardian beasts are the patriarchal gods of the individual tribes. Like Daizyujin, they are physical incarnations rather than mere robots and have various innate sacred powers.

The first Guardian Beast to be awakened, the Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus (守護獣 ティラノザウルス Shugojū Tiranozaurusu?) is Geki's Guardian Beast and the god of the Yamato tribe. Bigger and stronger than the other primary Guardian Beasts, it is able to vaporize giant Dora Monsters with its Tyranno Sonic shockwave fired from its mouth and can stand on its tail to deliver jump kicks to its enemy. During the battle with Dora Sphinx in episode 5, rather than let Geki pilot him, Tyrannosaurus instead sent Geki into the future where he was confronted with the barren wasteland Bandora planned to turn the Earth into unless the Zyurangers learned to make their hearts as one. When Tyrannosaurus is called upon, he comes from under the earth. Forms Daizyujin's head and body. First introduced in episode 2 and later helped out in Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai.

"Fusion, Dino Misson! Beast Tank DinoTanker!"
When the five core guardian beasts first come together, they form into Beast Tank DinoTanker (獣戦車ダイノタンカー Jūsensha Dainotankā?) which attacks enemies with its dual Beast Tank Cannons, or with lightning blasts from the eyes of each Guardian Beast called the Beast Tank Storm. When assuming the form of Daizyujin; DinoTanker's cannons fold in to switch out with the hands, its front treads raise up to become the legs, Pteranodon detaches from the back and flies around to the front, and Tyrannosaurus' face folds into its chest to reveal Daizyujin's head.
Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai
Years later, Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus 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.
When GokaiOh and Gosei Great faced the Black Cross Colossus, the mecha of the first 33 Super Sentai, including Daizyujin which possibly manifested from a toy version like DaiDenzin and the Variblune, appeared to back them up. When the Black Cross Colossus summoned several giant villains to oppose them, Daizyujin fought alongside Abarenoh and Galaxy Mega to destroy Danger Cabinet-Director Chirakasonne. After all the giant villains were destroyed, all 35 mecha weakened Black Cross Colossus with a combined attack before GokaiOh combined with the Variblune to become Goren GokaiOh which destroyed the Black Cross Colossus with the Gokai Hurricane: Cassiopeia finisher. With the battle won, the 33 past Super Sentai mecha vanished.
Super Hero Taisen Z
Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus was part of a group of Tyrannosaurus Mecha manifestations which appeared around the Gabutyra head of Kyoryuzin as its Miracle Combination prepared the Zyuden Brave Strike End Rider Kick attack which destroyed Demon King Psycho.
Guardian Beast Tyrannosaurus which was summoned by Zyuranger Zyudenchi forms Daizyujin.
Through the powers of the Phantom Ranger Keys, the Gokaigers can re-create and summon the Greater Power of any Super Sentai team in existence. In Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters vs. Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: The Movie, the Phantom Ranger Keys reproduced the greater power of the Go-Busters, which allowed their respective mechas to transform to other previous Super Sentai mechas through Megazord keys. Gai used his Megazord key to transform GoZyuJin into Daizyujin.
- Guardian Beasts ZyuMammoth, SaberTiger, and Triceratops could combine with Dragon Caesar to form Gouryujin.
- Daizyujin could combine with Guardian Beast Dragon Caesar to form Zyutei Daizyujin.
- Daizyujin and Dragon Caesar can combine with Beast Knight God King Brachion to form Ultimate Daizyujin
