Behind the scenes
As Himitsu Sentai Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai were Shotaro Ishinomori's creations, elements from Ishinomori's other series (Kikaider and Kamen Rider) could be mentioned. These other heroes are mentioned when Joker tells the J.A.K.Q. that the world is fighting the resurrected CRIME and the Crime Big Four. Aside from Kikaider, the Gorengers were fighting General Sahara in the Sahara desert in North Africa, Kamen Rider V3 was fighting Baron Iron Mask's Iron Mask Battalion in Europe, and Kamen Rider Amazon was continuing his battle in the Amazon. While the Gorengers would of course team up with J.A.K.Q., Kikaider and the two Kamen Riders do not appear in the flesh.
In Android Kikaider, Kikaider was portrayed by Daisuke Ban (also known as Naoya Ban), who also played Inazuman, Daisuke Izumo (Fire-Stealth Captor 7) the Red Warrior of Ninja Captor, and Makoto Jin (Battle Cossack II) in Battle Fever J. In J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai vs. Gorenger, as Kikaider is merely depicted by a picture, he has no actor here.
Kikaider originated in Android Kikaider (人造人間キカイダー Jinzō Ningen Kikaidā), a tokusatsu superhero TV series. Created by Japanese manga artist Shotaro Ishinomori, the show was produced by Toei Company Ltd., and was broadcast on NET (now TV Asahi) from July 8, 1972 to May 5, 1973, with a total of 43 episodes. A week after the finale of Android Kikaider emerged a sequel series, Kikaider 01, the titular hero being a second Kikaider. Kikaider also appeared in a manga series which was released alongside the tokusatsu show, and later appeared in an anime series in the early 2000s.
