  • The Questers locate a Precious – the Mountain Crushing Kanabou. The Boukengers try to stop them, but instead encounter a giant peach in a river, which opens, leaving Eiji and Akashi holding a baby. The others learn that the baby is the Momotarou from legend, who has been sent by the mountain to recover the Kanabou. Eiji and Akashi name the baby Tarou, but it quickly grows into a young boy, who calls Eiji 'father' and Akashi 'mother'. Quester Robo is activated and uses the Kanabou to destroy a mountain. The next morning, Tarou has grown again into a teenager. He decides to go and recover the Kanabou by fighting the Questers. The Boukengers go along for support but when the battle goes badly, Tarou runs away. Quester Robo is met in battle by SirenBuilder and DaiVoyager, Tarou stops the Robo's attack himself, allowing the Boukengers to destroy it.

  • Quotes (11)

    • Gai: I can't believe there's a Precious in such a remote place. Rei: The Mountain Crushing Kanabou. With this, we can quickly waste the human world. Gai: We should create a Quester Robo suitable for this.

    • Eiji: Gai, hand the Precious over! Gai: Hey hey, it's hard to tell who's doing the robbing. Rei: We found this first! Natsuki: Precious aren't finders keepers! Gai: That's right. It belongs to the strong! When the robo is finished, we'll take our time in dealing with you.

    • Sakura: Mr. Voice, just what is that baby? Voice: Plain as sight. Isn't he Momotarou? Sakura: You're not sure? Souta: (holding a sword) He even had this with him. Natsuki: But... Being born from a giant peach floating down a river. That would be Momotarou. I wonder if he'll eventually go exterminate oni? Masumi: Well... we'll find out then. More important, the Precious. Voice: I'm researching that Mountain Crushing Kanabou. Seems they say it has the power to smash the land. Souta: We let such a thing fall into the Quester's hands? Didn't they say they were going to make a robo? Sakura: Let's find their base. There should be a large energy signal. Split up and search.

    • Akashi: (on the baby) That's it. He has no name, does he? How about Tarou? Eiji: Well, he's too different to be Momotarou. Tarou is good enough, I think. Akashi: Alright. Then Tarou it is. You like that? (Tarou suddenly grows to be around 8 years old) Akashi: Tarou? Tarou: (to Eiji) Uncle! Eiji: Uncle? (Tarou looks at Akashi) Akashi: Wait a minute! I have a bad feeling. Tarou: (to Akashi) Auntie. Akashi: I knew it.

    • Natsuki: That baby grew this big!? Masumi: Then you guys are Uncle and Auntie? Souta: So then... after all... Sakura: That can't be! Boy, can you tell us yourself? Souta: (holds up the sword) This is yours, right? What's it mean? Natsuki: Hey, hey. You're Momotarou, aren't you? Akashi: Hey. He's still a kid. Eiji: And Momotarou wouldn't be a crybaby like this. Tarou! Men don't sob uncontrollably.
