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

The Trigger Machines (トリガーマシン Torigā Mashin) are the main mecha of the Patrangers.

Overview

They are parts of the Lupin Collection that the Global Special Police Organization Japan Branch was able to acquire for their ranks to level the playing field with the Interdimensional Crime Group Gangler as well as the Lupinrangers. They have multiple battle uses, such as to transform a police officer into a Patranger (with a VS Changer, to attack, and to act as battle vehicles. It was also discovered that they can work with other pieces of the Lupin Collection, such as GoodStriker to increase their chances in battle, such as to form a giant robo.

History

Finding themselves greatly at a disadvantage against the Ganglers and Lupinrangers, Commander Hilltop provides a much needed boost to the GSPO Japan branch officers on the case by using pieces of the Lupin Collection. Number 1: The Troublemaking Phantom Thief

Intercepting the Lupinrangers, the Patrangers made pursuit with the giant Trigger Machines only to be eluded by the Lupinrangers' own Dial Fighters. Number 2: International Police, Chase After Them

When GoodStriker joined the Patrangers' side against the enlarged Namero Bacho, Keisatsu Gattai PatKaiser was formed for the first time, allowing them to defeat the Gangler Monster. The Patrangers were promptly ejected as GoodStriker took his leave again. Number 3: Take Them Back No Matter What

Notes

  • While the Trigger Machines are designed with elements standard of most Police Forces, the attack modes of Trigger Machines 1gou and 2gou have similar elements to the respective red and green mecha of Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger.
  • While not the first Sentai Robo to use a bat themed weapon, it is the first Sentai Robo to use a bat-like weapon as its main weapon.
    • It is the first robo in a police-themed Sentai to use, particularly, a police baton as its main weapon.
  • The Trigger Machines are the Sentai equivalent to Kamen Rider DriveIcon-crosswiki's Shift CarsIcon-crosswiki.
  • PatKaiser uses a strafing dive shot that (production-wise) takes advantage and makes use of CGI to be more agile in a style of movement similar to the Dekaranger Robo.
  • Trigger Machine 2gou's shares it's summoning announcement with parts of the transformation announcement for the Billy the Kid Damashii from Kamen Rider Ghost .
