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 mecha of Lupin X/Patren X in Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger.

Overview

It is a pair of silver and golden trains connected back to back, controlled by the X Rod Sword in either cab. It is summoned when Noel rotates the X Changer 360 degrees, then shifting to the appropriate train and firing. While it seemingly defaults to the X Train Silver commandeered by Lupin X, Noel can switch between the two trains easily. He pulls from the current cockpit into a central chamber between the two trains, switches to the necessary form for the train in question with the X Rod Sword, and slides into the other train re-inserting the weapon. 

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 cartwheel to switch as Noel switches 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 first set off towards Japan in 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 with LupinKaiser Trains.Number 20: The New Thief is a Policeman

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 X Train Silver and X Train Gold.

In addition to being his changer, Noel can repair damaged VS Vehicles by analyzing the damage with holograms from his phone then using the X Train Silver as some form of soldering iron firing a small green energy beam.Number 23: Status: Gold

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.
    • Due to how it transforms, each limb transfers to the opposite side when a leg turns into and arm and vice-versa, as opposed to how two mecha stayed on the same side when changing into the opposite limb, while the other two swapped sides.
  • X Emperor brings a lot of firsts to Sentai:
    • It is the first 6th Ranger Robo to be Four Piece Robo, with its closest parallel being the first official 6th Ranger's mecha and its combination with the mecha of three other Rangers.
    • It is also the first 6th Ranger Robo to have two default forms it switches between.
    • 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 and Robo.
  • 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 the combined form of all main mecha appears similar to the formation of Cho Cho ToQ-DaiOh.
