This article is about a/an an army of footsoldiers in Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger .

The Zorima (ゾーリ魔 Zōrima, lit. "Paramecium Demons") are the Debo grunts Footsoldiers that serve the Deboth Army and the Neo Deboth Army, created from Deboth cells that are littered around the world. They tend to wiggle around and make a 'nuru' sound. The normal variety of Zorima are armed with energy guns that have razor blades to cut to fight the Kyoryugers. But in some cases, the Zorima can clump themselves together and fuse into monstrous creatures called Giant Zorima (巨大ゾーリ魔 Kyodai Zōrima) which combat the Zyudenryu.

Neo Deboth Army

The Zorima of the Neo Deboth Army first appeared on Earth led by Homuras, who ordered them to indiscriminately attack humans so as to draw out the Power of the Dragon King. They were first fought by Hyeonjun Jeon and Sechang Kim but eventually beat down the soon-to-be heroes. However, they were then opposed by Juyong Kwon and his Minityra. Recognizing Juyong as Daigo's second coming, Torin gave him the Gabugaburivolver and Dinocell, enabling him to become Brave Kyoryu Red and quickly defeating the Zorima.

The Zorima were designed by character designer K-SuKe, who worked on the majority of the Deboth Army for Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger.

Etymology

Notes

  • The Giant Zorima slightly resemble Dark Species Deboth's Prehistoric form.
  • The Zorima's ability to turn into a giant monster might be based on the soldiers Kunekune from Denji Sentai Megaranger when they displayed this ability in ep. 14 to become a king kunekune both even did it the same way by clumping each other together
