This article is about a/an mecha in Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger.


Trigger Machine Crane & Trigger Machine Drill (トリガーマシンクレーン&トリガーマシンドリル Torigā Mashin Kurēn & Torigā Mashin Doriru) is a yellow & white Trigger Machine combo consisting of Trigger Machine Crane & Trigger Machine Drill.

Overview

This is a pair of Trigger Machines that are in a set. Initially, only Drill was found, and Crane had to be located by tunneling underground.

This set of Trigger Machines can combine their abilities and perform their own finisher, where Trigger Machine Crane pins the opponent against a surface and extends a ramp, allowing Trigger Machine Drill to race to the end of its boom and destroy the Gangler Monster by boring through it.

In a Keisatsu Boost, Crane replaces the left arm of the user with Drill docked inside, giving the user the ability of PatKaiser Strong. Drill can also be detached for its Attack Mode, and also hang onto the hook of Crane for a whip-like attack.

History

Sometime in the past, these VS vehicles ended up in the hands of Gangler brothers Anidara and Odordo Maximoff, the latter swearing revenge when his older brother was crushed by PatKaiser.

―post-combination announcement[src]

PatKaiser Strong (パトカイザーストロング PatoKaizā Sutorongu) is the combination of Trigger Machine 1gou, Trigger Machine 2gou, Trigger Machine Crane, Trigger Machine Drill, and GoodStriker.

In this form, PatKaiser can smash opponents with the robust Crane body, even shield it from attacks. It can drag & throw foes by hooking them onto the telescoping boon, rapidly attacking with it by quickly extending then retracting. Trigger Machine Drill is used like a sword or thrusting weapon, activating its drill by the Cho Drill Spin.

The finishing move is called PatKaiser: Break-Up Strike (パトカイザーブレークアップストライク PatoKaizā: Burēku Appu Sutoraiku), where PatKaiser grabs and drags the enemy into the air with the crane hook and impales the downward swinging monster using Trigger Machine Drill, destroying it.

Notes

  • The use of a crane and drill combination is similar to Kamen Rider Birth'sIcon-crosswiki Crane Arm and Drill Arm CLAWIcon-crosswiki modules, DaiBouken's Drill & Crane combination (albeit reversed in arm placement), and Build DaiOh Drill.
  • Both Trigger Machines Crane & Drill are the first VS Vehicles to end up in the hands of a (pair of) Gangler Monster(s) before they were used by either team.
  • According to GoodStriker, both of these VS Vehicles were not Trigger Machines prior to being lost, meaning that Noel found and upgraded them before they were stolen by the Smash Brothers.
  • Its Dial Fighter counterparts are the Scissors & Blade Dial Fighters, seeing they are both two-in-one VS Vehicles.
    • Their first appearance also reminisce each other, as they both destroyed a Gangler wihout having to join the Main Mecha.
    • Both VS Vehicle sets can summon miniature version of themselves for weaponry granted to the user.
