|This article is about a/an array of morphing device implements in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.|
They are mysterious special items which appeared after the 34 past Sentai teams sacrificed their powers. They were dispersed all over the universe. The group known as the Red Pirates, consisting of AkaRed, Marvelous, and Basco ta Jolokia, knowing that with them they would find the Greatest Treasure in the Universe, collected them and put them in a chest in the Gokai Galleon. Basco betrayed the two, wanting the Keys and the Treasure for himself, conspiring with Zangyack to attack the ship. AkaRed gave the Ranger Key chest to Marvelous before departing. It's unknown where the Gokaiger Ranger Keys originated from, except for Gokai Silver's Ranger Key, which was said to be created from the combined powers of the 3 deceased Rangers who gave it to him.
However, it was revealed that they didn't find them all, as Basco found the Keys of the Sixth Rangers afterwards. These Keys were later taken by the Gokaigers, but Basco revealed that he had keys of the Extra Rangers and Extra Heroes as well. Once again, these Keys were later taken by the Gokaigers.
Kai Ozu revealed that to obtain the Greatest Treasure, the full power of the keys of all 34 Sentai teams must be unlocked. Normally stored in their chest called the Gokai Treanger Box (ゴーカイトレンジャーボックス Gōkai Torenjā Bokkusu), or in a Gokai Buckle, the Ranger Keys fold to form a key which can allow the user to become a Gokaiger or access the powers of one of the previous 34 Sentai groups by using it on the Mobilates. By using it on the weapons it can activate a Final Wave (ファイナルウェイブ Fainaru Weibu) attack. Basco can summon manifestations of Sixth Rangers and Extra Heroes by putting the keys in his magic trumpet and playing it. Though the Ranger Keys are kept in the chest on the Gokai Galleon, the Gokaigers can use them on Earth thanks to a link in their bucklers set-up by Navi, in which the desired key will appear.
Aside from the Gokaiger Keys, the other Ranger Keys are not specific to any of the five Gokaigers. While the Gokaigers primarily transform into a previous Super Sentai hero of their color, the Gokaigers can use a Ranger Key of any color.
When their representative color was not on on the previous team, the Gokaigers can transform into the closest analog. For example, if the Gokaigers were to transform into the Gaorangers, Gokai Green would transform into GaoBlack and Gokai Pink would transform into GaoWhite.
If the gender of is different from the orginal, the Gokaiger's transformed suit will match the style used by their gender. For example, when Gokai Blue and Gokai Yellow transform into MagiBlue and MagiYellow in episode 1, the MagiBlue suit is in the male Magiranger style and the MagiYellow suit in the female style. However, certain teams (Gorenger, Battle Fever, Goggle V, Dynaman, Fiveman, and Dekaranger) did not feature any real difference on the suits between the Rangers, since there is no gender difference design from that team.
The Ranger Keys are also compatible with the control helms for GokaiOh and GoZyuJin, allowing the two mecha to gain access to an unlocked Greater Power through the Ranger Keys.
The Ranger Keys can also activate a Ranger's Super Mode if they had one. The only exception to this was Armed TyrannoRanger, as Gai, as DragonRanger, had to give Marvelous the Dragon Armor the same way Burai did to Geki.
If the original Sentai Rangers comes into contact with their respective Ranger Keys, the keys will glow and they will automatically regain their powers and transform, removing the Ranger Key from existence. Conversely, a Ranger who has regained their powers this way can voluntarily relinquish them and transform the powers back into a Ranger Key, allowing the Gokaigers to use them once again.
After their final battle with Zangyack Empire, all of the Ranger Keys were returned to their rightful owners, restoring the power of the 34 previous Sentai.
Despite that, the Gokaigers later manage to retrieve the Ranger Keys, as shown when Marvelous used some of them to transform into several Sentai members to battle Kamen Riders (Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen) and on an adventure with the Go-Busters wherein it is shown that the Gokaigers borrow the Ranger Keys from their predecessors from time to time. They also later on start borrowing the keys of Super Sentai that followed them, when the need arises.

These keys were found by AkaRed and the Red Pirate Gang sometime after the Great Legend War in the hopes of finding the Greatest Treasure in the Universe and returning the powers of the Super Sentai 199.

Gokai Silver's Ranger Keys
These keys (bar Gokai Silver) were originally found by Basco after Marvelous took the main Ranger Keys. These 15 keys were taken from him when the Gokaigers defeated his Ranger clones. Mikoto Nakadai (AbareKiller), Burai (DragonRanger), and Naoto Takizawa (TimeFire) created the Gokai Silver powers in the afterlife, along with the Gokai Silver Key, which they gave to Gai Ikari when he proved himself. The other sixth Ranger keys now belong to Gai.
Unlike most Ranger Keys, which just announce their team names when in use, the Shurikenger and Gosei Knight Keys announce the name of the Ranger themselves, while the Go-On Gold and Go-On Silver Keys announce the name of the Go-On Wings due to different affiliations with those members (Shurikenger is from a different ninja school than the Hurricanegers and Gouraigers, the Sutou Siblings were an elite team before the Go-Ongers were formed, and Gosei Knight was once a Headder).
- Gokai Silver Key (ゴーカイシルバーキー Gokai Shirubā Kī): Gai Ikari's personal Ranger Key that allows him to transform into Gokai Silver. When this key is used with the other Gokaiger Keys, it summons the Kanzen Soul, the Greater Power of the Gokaigers, allowing GokaiOh, GoZyuJin, and Engine Machalcon to combine into Kanzen GokaiOh.

- TimeFire Key (タイムファイヤーキー Taimu Faiyā Kī): This key can be used to summon GoZyuDrill, the Greater Power of the Timerangers, from the year 3000.
- GaoSilver Key (ガオシルバーキー Gao Shirubā Kī)
- Shurikenger Key (シュリケンジャーキー Shurikenjā Kī)
- AbareKiller Key (アバレキラーキー Abare Kirā Kī): This key can be used to transform GoZyuRex into GoZyuJin, the Greater Power of the Abarangers. When used on its own, the AbareKiller Key allows GoZyuJin to execute the Gokai Dengeki Drill Spin attack. When this key is used with the other Abaranger Keys, GoZyuJin's arms transfer to GokaiOh, becoming GoZyu GokaiOh.

Extra Ranger/Extra Hero Keys
After losing his Sixth Ranger keys to the Gokaigers, Basco ta Jolokia revealed that he had keys of Extra Rangers and Extra Heroes as well. The Black Knight key was taken from him by Gai in episode 20. Gai later took the remaining keys in episode 31.
- Signalman Key (シグナルマンキー Shigunaruman Kī)
- Black Knight Key (黒騎士キー Kuro Kishi Kī): Given to Gai by Hyuuga himself during the Gokaiger's second fight with Basco after retrieving the Black Knight Key. It holds the Gingamen's Greater Power. When this key is used in GoZyuJin, it allows for the Brave Beast Fierce Cut attack.

This is the first key not to have originated from the Great Legend War. It is implied that Ahim got rid of the key, as when GoZyu GokaiOh forms, Ahim doesn't appear in the split-screen effect.
- Phantom Ranger Keys (幻のレンジャーキー Maboroshi no Renjā Kī): These keys appear in Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters vs. Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: The Movie. They later turn into the Buddy Roid Keys.
- Buddy Roid Keys (バディロイドキー Badiroido Kī): These keys appear in Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters vs. Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: The Movie. They transformed from the Phantom Keys. They are the Go-Busters's Greater Power which manifests in the larger Megazord key, literally referred to as "Greater Power of the Go-Busters". Beet J. Stag's Ranger Key was the only one previously released alongside the Beet and Stag Buster's keys as part of the "Legends" series of toys. It is unknown if they can be used by the Gokaigers to change into Buddy Roids, nor is it known what happened to them after their use.
- Greater Power of the Go-Busters (ゴーバスターズの大いなる力 Gōbasutāzu no Ōinaru Chikara): This Giant-Robo-scale key appears in Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters vs. Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: The Movie. It generates the "Megazord Keys" and is generated from the Greater Power of the Go-Busters, the Buddy Roids. There were five copies of the Keys, one given to each of the mecha.
- Megazord Keys (メガゾードキー Megazōdo Kī):  These giant keys appear in Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters vs. Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: The Movie. Splitting from the Greater Power of the Go-Busters, they allow Gokaiger and Go-Buster giant robos to transform into other giant robos. This is the first acknowledgement of Sentai giant robos with the umbrella term "Megazords".
- Flash King Key (フラッシュキングキー Furasshu Kingu Kī) from the Flashmen. Used by Go-Buster Ace.
- Daizyujin Key (大獣神キー Daijūjin Kī) from the Zyurangers. Used by GoZyuJin.

- GekiTohja Key (ゲキトージャキー Geki Tōja Kī) from the Gekirangers. Used by Go-Buster Ace.
Combined Ranger Keys
Gai has the ability to combine multiple keys into one. He's been shown to combine two keys into one as well as fifteen keys into a super mode key, the Anchor Key.
- Go-On Wings Key (ゴーオンウイングスキー Gōon Uingusu Kī): Combined form of the Go-On Gold and Go-On Silver Keys when Gai couldn't decide which Key to use.
- Gokai Christmas Key (ゴーカイクリスマスキー Gōkai Kurisumasu Kī): Combined form of the Gokai Red and Gokai Green Keys, with a gold Gokaiger emblem on the helmet.
- Gold Anchor Key (ゴールドアンカーキー Gōrudo Ankā Kī): After Gai somehow fused the keys of Go-On Gold and Go-On Silver, Don would later suggest that he do the same with all 15 Sixth Ranger keys using his imagination. After Gai pleaded for it, all 15 Sixth Rangers banded together to form the Golden Anchor Key, a key shaped like an Anchor with all the Sixth Rangers faces on it. Gai normally uses his Ranger Keys by placing them inside his Gokai Cellular and then scanning them, but the Anchor Key is instead inserted in a slot in the bottom of the Gokai Cellular.
When activated it forms an armor similar to the key around his chest and armor running down the sides of his legs. His helmet is pushed down and the Gokai Spear changes to Anchor Mode. In this form, he gains an increase in both speed and strength and is able to use a third variant of his Final Wave, called Gokai Legendream (ゴーカイレジェンドリーム Gōkai Rejendorīmu).
By inserting the Gokai Silver Key and swinging the Gokai Spear, he summons the spirit of the past 15 Sixth Rangers. First MegaSilver, GaoSilver, MagiShine, Bouken Silver, Go-On Gold, Go-On Silver, and Gosei Knight use their weapons to fire at the enemy. Next DragonRanger, KibaRanger, KingRanger, TimeFire, Shurikenger, AbareKiller, DekaBreak, and Shinken Gold slash at (or in DekaBreak's case, punch) the enemy to finish it off, and Gai himself performs the final attack by slashing the enemy with the Gokai Spear. When first used, the attack seemed to tire him out.
During the fight with Wolzard Fire and Great Sword Man Zubaan in Ep. 31: Crash!! Secret Operations, Gai uses an alternative Gold Mode Final Wave called Gokai Legend Crash (ゴーカイレジェンドクラッシュ Gōkai Rejendo Kurasshu), which involves Gai swinging the Gokai Spear with devastating results, while manifestations of the 5 previous Silver Rangers and Go-On Gold phased in and out as Gai swings the Spear.
In the finale, Gai used a variation of the Gokai Legend Crash where, as he jumps into the air, all of the Sixth Ranger spirits appear alongside him and they use their weapons to slash downwards as Gai does with his.
In Super Sentai Battle: Dice-O, Gokai Red can use Gai's Gold Anchor Key to become Gokai Red Gold Mode (ゴーカイレッド ゴールドモード Gōkai Reddo Gōrudo Mōdo). However, as it is Gai's key, Gokai Red's Gold Mode is identical to Gokai Silver's Gold Mode, with the 15 Sixth Rangers rather than the past 34 Red Rangers. As shown in cards, Gai's Gold Mode can be used by the rest of the Gokaigers as well.
Non-Super Sentai Ranger Keys
- Kamen Rider OOO Keys (仮面ライダーOOO (オーズ)キー Kamen Raidā Ōzu Kī): When Kamen Rider OOO gave his Core Medals to the Gokaigers, they transformed into these keys. These keys change the Gokaigers into OOO's Full Combos in Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen. They are then immediately used with the GokaiGalleon Buster. Though first refered to by Don as "OOO's Ranger Keys", they are soon after called Rider Keys (ライダーキー Raidā Kī) when inserted into the GokaiGalleon Buster. These Rider Keys were most likely turned back to O Medals, and given back to Kamen Rider OOO.

Ranger Keys by Preference
Below are charts of the most commonly-used Ranger Keys by each Gokaiger. Also featured are Basco's Extra Ranger/Extra Hero keys.
Behind the Scenes
Fanmade Ranger Keys
- Several fans are known to make their own homemade Ranger Keys. One of these Ranger Key makers is, of all people, Ei Hamura, the actor who played Shoji of the Heavenly Gravity Star (TenmaRanger) in Gosei Sentai Dairanger. He posts images of his Ranger Keys, both complete and incomplete, on his Twitter account.
- There is a rumor among fans that the TenmaRanger key that Ei was holding during his Gokaiger cameo was his own handmade TenmaRanger Key. The rumor is partially supported by the TenmaRanger key in the finale appearing different than how it usually appeared (i.e., more accurate to the suit, having painted sides).
- Since Ranger Keys are created from the powers of Super Sentai, they can be consider as proofs of being Super Sentai.
- The Extra Ranger/Extra Hero Keys are the only Ranger Keys that are not used by a specific Gokaiger. Notably, however, the Black Knight Key was given specifically to Gai.
- Due to the existence of Takeru Shiba and Kaoru Shiba in The Great Legend War, Shinken Red is only Ranger that has two Ranger Keys for it.
- It is unknown exactly how Eiji got the purple Core Medals back, as the ones that Eiji possessed were explicitly seen shattering in the Kamen Rider OOO season finale. Some fans speculated that the reason might have been either Ankh also retrieved Dr. Maki's purple Core Medals (which were not shown being destroyed) when he took the medals out from Kamen Rider Poseidon's body or the Kougami Foundation reproduced them before the events of Super Hero Taisen.
- The term "Ranger Key" (レンジャーキー) could also be a pun on "Ranger Energy" (レンジャー気 Renjā Ki), as the "Keys" also represent the "powers" of the Super Sentai member they represent.
- The Ranger Keys of Gokaiger and the Rider Cards of Kamen Rider Decade were noted by Narutaki as one of the similarities between Gokaiger and Decade in the Super Hero Taihen net movie The Grown-ups’ Narumi Detective Agency Ep. 1: Is Gokaiger a Ripoff of Decade?.
- In their debut in Tensou Sentai Goseiger vs. Shinkenger: Epic on Ginmaku, when the Gokaigers present the Ranger Keys of the five Red Rangers, they actually call out "Ranger Key!" just as Sentai teams normally call the names of their weapons when they bring them out. They never do this in the series until the Gokai Galleon Buster was introduced, and this is even edited out when the battle is shown again in episode 40.
- With the appearance of the OOO Rider Keys and the Metal Hero Keys, many fans have speculated that all the Toei Superheroes have their own Ranger Key. This was later proven somewhat true with the continuation of the toyline Ranger Keys including heroes such as X-1 Mask and the remaining Metal Heroes. It is unknown at this time if Bandai is planning a Ranger Key set for the remaining main Kamen Riders or other Toei heroes such as Kikaider.
- The Go-Busters' Ranger Keys were produced immediately after Gokaiger but were preceded in canon by the Buddyroid keys, however, eventually, with premium sets such as for the Kyoryugers, ToQgers and Ninningers, the Go-Busters' core Ranger keys were introduced into canon in Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger, by either being shown or hinted at.
- With more than 200 different Ranger Keys, this is the highest number of collectibles ever for a Super Sentai series.
- Rider Cards - a set of cards that function like Ranger Keys, used by Kamen Rider Decade
- Legendary Ranger Keys - Power Rangers counterpart in Super Megaforce. See comparison page.
