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 collectibles, arsenal, and Mecha of the Patrangers.

Overview

Trigger Machines

Trigger Machines 1gou, 2gou, and 3gou

They are modified parts of the Lupin Collection that the Global Special Police Organization Japan Branch were 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 uses depending on the Machine, such as transform a police officer into a Patranger, activate a Keisatsu Boost, and enlarge for combat and Mecha formations. Much to their name, they act as an auxiliary replacement of the trigger of the VS Changer, the weapon that is used to activate the Machines' various abilities.

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.
    • Additionally, Patkaiser's head resembles a S.W.A.T. mask and helmet.
  • While not the first Sentai Robo to use a bat-like or blunt weapon, it is the first primary Sentai Robo to use a bat-like weapon as its main weapon in contrast to a sword.
    • It is the first Robo in a police-themed Sentai to use, particularly, a police baton as its main melee weapon.
  • PatKaiser uses a strafing dive shot that (production-wise) takes advantage and makes use of CGI to be more agile in movement, similar to Dekaranger Robo.
  • Trigger Machine 2gou's shares its summoning announcement with parts of the transformation announcement for Billy the Kid DamashiiIcon-crosswiki from Kamen Rider GhostIcon-crosswiki.
  • Trigger Machine 1gou is tied with Red Dial Fighter for the most redeco's of a mech with three: Trigger Machines MusicFlash, and Dog. It should be noted that the redeco's are smaller in size to their base models.
  • Interestingly, the extra Trigger Machines used by the Patranger have a color scheme that follows the Lupinrangers.
