    • QUOTES (6)

      • Narrator: Rio's heart is jolted by Jan, and he returns to battle. With the rescued Mele, they release the Genki. They destroy Long's plan to turn Rio into the God of Destruction. And the Geki and Rin fated Kenshi work together to defeat Long. At least peace has arrived... so it seems...

      • Rio: If I have a sin to atone for... then just do a KenDan.
        Jan: KenDan?
        Sha-Fu: It's judgement by fist. In JyuKen it's said the just ones will risk their lives to bring judgement to the sinners. The sinners will also risk their lives to fight.

      • Sanyo: Let me tell you. It was a big mistake to think you defeated Sanyo.
        Rio: You bastard! Sanyo!
        Mele: Why!? I'm sure you died then!
        Sanyo: Sanyo is immortal. He will never die. Because...
        Long: He is a part of me.
        Mele: Long!
        Ran: Why!?
        Long: I am someone with eternal life. No one... nothing at all... can destroy me. I have a part of me that cannot die, Sanyo. You thought you destroyed me, but... But thanks to Sanyo's power to not die, I was revived.

      • Sha-Fu: (on Long's true form, MugenRyuu) Dragons of ancient legend. A mystical beast also known as a dragon. Was he behind them all?

      • Rio: Ringi, Zen Rin Den Chuu.
        (the GekiRangers are infused with Ringi)
        Ran: This is?
        Rio: Take it. It's all of RinJyuKen Akugata's Ringi. If a just heart can use Ringi... Started by Maku, Kata, Rageku... it would give a bit of meaning to our RinJyuDen's existence. Take us to the future using your hands!

      • Miki: At last the end...
        Bae: Mele! And Rio too! I was so shocked that I forgot to do the play-by-play for the giant battle. Will the GekiRangers overcome this sadness...
        Miki: (batting Bae aside) They'll definately win. Everyone, cheer for them.
