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


The X Trains (エックストレイン Ekusu Torein) are the train mecha of Lupin X/Patren X in Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger.

Overview

X Trains Silver and Gold are two trains connected back to back when summoned, controlled by the X Rod Sword in either cab. It is summoned when Noel rotates the X Changer 360 degrees, shifts to the appropriate train, then fires. While it seemingly defaults to the X Train Silver commandeered by Lupin X, Noel can switch between the two trains easily. and separate when needed. He pulls from the current cockpit into a central chamber between the two trains, switches to the necessary form for the train with the X Rod Sword (i.e. when turning to Lupin to Patren he flips the lever to Rod form to change, then flips it to middle again), and slides into the other train.

X Trains Fire and Thunder are Noel's auxiliary trains that can attack on their own when summoned.

The X Trains have two default Robo forms, X Emperor Slash and X Emperor Gunner. While each robot form has an intricate combination sequence and cockpit transfer, it can switch between the two when X Emperor performs a handstand to switch as Noel uses the X Rod Sword to the form in need.

History

Being created alongside the VS Changers and some of the VS Vehicles, the trains first appeared as Noel set off towards Japan from the GSPO France Headquarters, then confronting a Zarudan Hou as Lupin X. After revealing himself to both the Lupinrangers and Patrangers, he utilized the trains against Zarudan alongside LupinKaiser and destroyed him alongside LupinKaiser Trains.Number 20: The New Thief is a Policeman

X Changer

"Kaitou Change!"

"Keisatsu Change!"
―Patren X’s transformation announcement[src]

"X-Nize! Kaitou X-Change! (light jazz- firing sfx- dramatic music) Lupin X!"

The X Changer (Xチェンジャー Ekusu Chenjā) is the transformation device/standard issue firearm of Lupin X/Patren X. It is the combined form of the miniature X Train Silver and X Train Gold. Unlike the VS Changers, Noel cannot activate other VS Vehicles with the X Changer, and requires the VS Changers of either the Lupinrangers or Patrangers, though this has proven unnessasary in future summonings.

In addition to being his changer, Noel can repair damaged VS Vehicles by analyzing the damage with holograms from Lupin X's belt buckle, then using the X Train Silver as some form of soldering iron, firing a small green energy beam with X Trains Thunder and Fire providing the heat and energy for the operation.Number 23: Status: Gold

It can also be used to initiate finishers. For Lupin X, it initiates the Superior Shot, a silver flaming bullet. Unlike the VS Changers, the X Changer does not require any gimmick or movement; all it needs is to be readied then fired.Number 27: Dancing Afterwards

Appearances: Lupinranger vs Patranger Episode 21, 33

Good Cool Kaiser VSX

"Chou X-X Gat-time! (combination sequence) Good Cool Kaiser! V! S! X!"
―pre- & post-combination announcement[src]

Good Cool Kaiser VSX (グッドクルカイザーVSX Guddo Kuru Kaizā Bui Esu Ekkusu) is the combination between the main three Trigger Machines, Dial Fighters, GoodStriker, and X Trains. It combines all 10 main Vehicles into a single combination through GoodStriker, as his power is to empower the other pieces of the Collection. The combination was his idea to being with too.

Cockpit-wise, Lupin Blue & Yellow are in the "V" section, Patren 2gou & 3gou are in the "S" section, and Lupin Red, Patren 1gou, & Lupin/Patren X are in the "X" section. However, if somebody is uncooperative in the X cockpit and potentially the other cockpits as well, Goodie can switch him/her out for somebody more favorable. In the instance of its debut, Patren 1gou was booted down to the S cockpit in favor of Patren 3gou in the X cockpit. Each cockpit possesses colored lights on the back wall to signify which Ranger (excluding Noel) is in which part of the cockpit (when Keiichiro was switched, the red light turned pink for Tsukasa).

Despite its large, seemingly incumbent size, it is extremely agile and durable, being able to slide with the Vehicles by its feet, jump & kick, and use its four arms & ankle Vehicles to great effect in close quarters combat, alongside their individual special abilities such as Gold's gun ability and Yellow's energy buzzsaws. The secondary arm ports can also have the Auxiliary VS Vehicles attach to them, such as Crane, Drill, & Biker, and Scissors, Blade, & Cyclone and Splash & Magic. It overpowered even the likes of Raimon, a Status Gold, the toughest challenge both teams had encountered at the time.

Its finisher is the Good Cool Kaiser: Vehicle Rush Strike. All of the VS Vehicles that make up Good Cool Kaiser VSX separate, leaving behind their colored silhouettes on the body, and ready themselves for the final attack (excluding GoodStriker, and only the cabs of X Trains separate). GCKVSX then manually launches the 10 Vehicles towards the opponent in colored dashes, destroying him/her. The VS Vehicles then return to their silhouettes.

Wielding the Lupin Magnum, it can perform The Good CoolKaiser: Vehicle Burst Magnum, where the Lupin Magnum is loaded with the Auxillery VS Veicles to charge up a powerful laser shot.

Notes

  • The X Trains are similar to Magishine's Magical Iron God Travelion in that they are both train-themed mecha used by a gold Sixth Hero (technically).
  • X Emperor's transformation is similar to TimeRobo, as the arms and legs swap places with a different head for each form. The two robots also switch between a blade melee form and a ranged form. Coincidentally, the face sculpt of the sword form matches the gun form of the other.
  • The X Trains bring a lot of firsts to Sentai:
    • It is the first 6th Ranger Robo to be a Four Piece Robo, with its closest parallel being the first official 6th Ranger's mecha and its Mecha formation.
    • It is the first 6th Ranger Robo to have two default forms it switches between, without the components belonging to other rangers.
    • It is the first Sentai Robo to be dubbed Emperor.
    • The X Changer is the first Sentai Transformation Weapon that also becomes the Ranger's Mecha.
    • Good Cool Kaiser VSX is the first Robo to combine the power of two different teams.
    • Possibly due to the complex design, Good Cool Kaiser VSX does not have its own costume, being seen only in CGI. Only isolated parts are seen at a time in costume, such as the Blue and Yellow Dial Fighters. This makes it the second Robo only seen in CGI, after Safari GaOh.
      • Following this, GCKVSX is the first combination of the Main Mechas and 6th Mecha to only appear in CGI.
    • Good Cool Kaiser VSX is the first Mecha to have four independent working arms. While other Mechs such as Buster Ohranger Robo and RyuTei KyurenOh visibly use the arms of their components, they act as shoulder cannons and not like actual arms.
    • GCKVSX is one of the first CGI Robos that are not unrealistically flexible when seen, and move properly joint-wise during motion.
    • GCKVSX is the first Robo to have three separate cockpits.
  • The heads of each of the X Emperor modes draws similarities to past Mecha:
  • The X Trains reuse the train coupling of the ToQ Ressha.
    • A possible nod to the series is seen with how Good Cool Kaiser VSX is similar to Cho Cho ToQ-DaiOh.
  • X Emperor Slash and Gunner each have five "X"'s all over their bodies (the body itself, the X logo on the body, the X on Gold, both of their heads; X Train Silver for Slash, and the gatling gun on Gunner).
  • Good Cool Kaiser VSX's name originates from a mistranslation of one of GoodStriker's catch phrases, "guddokuru", used when he decides which team to work with. The phrase is wordplay on the term "guttokuru", which means "to touch emotionally; to feel something; to invoke striking feelings". This has been presumed to read as "Good Cool" when romanized literally into English. However, problems occur when attempting to read the phrase this way, as the Japanese writing of "Cool" is not "kuru" (クル), but "kuuru" (クール).  
    • Instead, by parsing the statement as half English and half Japanese as is seen utilized in recent Super Sentai with regards to naming conventions that use katakana (as well as in dialogue spoken among the series' cast members that are at times half-and-half) results in the phrase translating as "Good Feeling".
  • X Train Fire is almost physically similar to the Den-Liner, specifically, the Den-Liner Gouka.
  • The Trains correspond to their respective team in visible manners:
    • The colors of the Trains correlate to its' team's symbol. Gold for the Patrangers, Silver for the Lupinrangers.
    • The silver Trains have dials that do rotate, but they do not work like the Dial Fighters however.
  • Unused in the series, X Train Fire also has a combination, 2-1-8, programmed into the DX VS Changer just like the Dial Fighters. 
    • The Summoning Announcements of the auxiliary Trains follow the trends of their teams' respective Mecha sets.
    • The fighting styles of the X Emperor forms fight somewhat like their teams; static and shooting for Gunner, and agility and a sword for Slash.
