SynopsisEdit

Set four years after Don Armage's defeat, the universe is now at peace, until Hammie from the Kyurangers suddenly steals the newly developed Neo Kyutama, and her fellow Kyuranger and Space Federation President Tsurugi Ōtori is forced to declare her a wanted criminal due the danger the Neo Kyutama poses should it fall into the wrong hands. Lucky and some of the Kyurangers refuse to believe Hammie became evil and contest Tsurugi's decision, causing a rift amidst the team that worsens when Space Sherrifs Geki Jumonji and Shu Karasuma intervene. Little they know that the events are masterminded by the Genmakuu organization, who has sent one of their top-member, Space Ninja Demost, who also revived Mele, Juzo Fuwa, Basco Ta Jolokia, and Escape to assist him in his plan.

PlotEdit

Space Sheriff Shu Karasuma and Toma Amagi, the current Jiraya, members of Space Squad, locate and attempt to arrest Space Ninja Demost from the criminal organization Genmakuu, but he escapes through a portal to the Kyurangers' universe with Shaider chasing after him. There, the universe has been rebuilding since Don Armage's defeat four years ago under Tsurugi Ohtori's leadership while the Kyurangers has parts ways to live their lives, until Shou Ronpo discovers that Hammie stole four of the newly developed Neo Kyutamas. This causes a division upon the Kyurangers who those following Tsurugi who seeks her arrest while Lucky and the rest wanting want to find Hammie and try to find out the reason of her actions.

Hammie brings the Kyutamas to Demost, who uses them to revive Mere, Juzo Fuwa, Basco Ta Jolokia and Escape to serve under him. He then sends the five to attack the other Kyurangers in a hit-and-run, worsening Hammie's creditability as Shu and his fellow Space Sheriff Geki Jumonji offer their aid. It would be revealed that Hammie is being extorted by Demost who is holding her mentor hostage after she was assumed dead during Jark Matter's reign of terror, the space ninja forcing Hammie to comply with order to assassinate Tsurugi.

Hammie makes the attempt when Tsurugi makes a public announcement of stepping down in light of the recent events, only to hesitate as Geki and Shu reveal her forced compliance to Demost as he is exposed as one of Tsurugi's aides in disguise, Naga and Balance having rescued Hammie's master as added evidence. Demost attempts to kill Hammie when Mele, having feigned loyalty while becoming a friend to the fellow chameleon-themed warrior, sacrifices herself. The Kyurangers, Gavan, and Shaider defeat Demost with Juzo, Basco, and Escape returning to the afterlife after his spell broken. Following Geki's offer to Lucky to join the Space Squad, he and Shu take Demost back to their universe and are informed by Jiraya about a massive terrorist attack led by Genmakuu. This makes Geki consider scouting some other new members for the Space Squad to deal with such incidents.

NotesEdit

  • According to Space Squad writer Naruhisa Arakawa, Machineman from Seiun Kamen Machineman was his most wanted Toei Hero that he planned to add in the sequel.[2] Unfortunately, it doesn't happen.
  • Of the three current Space Sheriffs, Kai HyugaIcon-crosswiki/Sharivan is the only one not to appear. This is due to the retirement of his actor, Riki MiuraIcon-crosswiki, from the entertainment industry.[3]
  • This movie sees HammieIcon-crosswiki/Chameleon Green of the Chameleon SystemIcon-crosswiki fighting alongside her fellow Chameleon warrior from GekirangerIcon-crosswiki, MeleIcon-crosswiki.
    • However, Mele's presence among the Super Sentai Villains is curious in that she was uniquely redeemed by the end of her series alongside her partner RioIcon-crosswiki and, despite condemning their souls to revive in Engine Sentai Go-Onger vs. GekirangerIcon-crosswiki, they would fight with the Super SentaiIcon-crosswiki in the Legend WarIcon-crosswiki.
      • She was revived with her original personality as she revealed to still be loyal to Rio and she refuses to obey Demost so he brainwashes her to serve him.
  • Basco has prior connections with two of his fellow Sentai Villains.
  • Basco is also connected to Metal Heroes through his appearance in the film Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger vs. Uchuu Keiji Gavan: The Movie, where he informed the Gokaigers that Retsu IchijoujiIcon-crosswiki had been imprisoned in Makuu SpaceIcon-crosswiki. He intended to take advantage of their absence as they set off to Makuu Space by seizing the Gokai GalleonIcon-crosswiki, only to be thwarted by the Go-Busters trioIcon-crosswiki.
  • Some Metal Heroes' English spelling was clearly typed in this film for the first time:
    • Space Wolf Juspion
    • Janperson Fight For Justice
    • Jiban The Mobile Cop
  • Beside M • A • OIcon-crosswiki (Raptor 283Icon-crosswiki) appearing as Luka MillfyIcon-crosswiki, other Kyuranger's voice actors also make cameos in this movie.
  • The cameo appearance of Ryouma Kagawa/FireIcon-crosswiki in this film marks the first return of this character over 26 years after the final episodeIcon-crosswiki of SolbrainIcon-crosswiki.
    • Notably, Ryouma appears in his Fire form, rather than his Knight Fire form he had in Solbrain.
  • Five of the six members of the Kyurangers that defend Hammie (Shishi Red, Ookami Blue, Oushi Black, Chameleon Green, and Kajiki Yellow) are the first five Kyurangers to appear transformed in the series. These are also the Kyurangers' whose Voyagers make up the main formation for Kyutama Gattai KyurenOhIcon-crosswiki.
    • Additionally, the Kyurangers are divided into odd number Rangers for those who are defending Hammie (1/Shishi Red, 3/Ookami Blue, 5/Oushi Black, 7/Chameleon Green, 9/Kajiki Yellow, & 11/Koguma Skyblue), and even number for those against Hammie (2/Sasori Orange, 4/Tenbin Gold, 6/Hebitsukai Silver, 8/Washi Pink, 12/Houou Soldier). Team Lucky has odd numbers while Team Tsurugi has even numbers. This is due to their Kyutama numbers.
  • Shou doesn’t transform into Ryu Commander in this movie, and as such is the only Kyuranger not to be part of either side during the team's conflict.
    • However, Shou's ranger form only appears in the movie poster.
  • It's unknown how Luka Millfy managed to travel to the Kyuranger universe, although her appearance is most likely simply for fan service's sake.
