Bokkowaus is annoyed that the Zenkaigers are getting more powerful. Barashitara says it’s all the work of the pirate girl, but Copy World who is currently on the job should help.
The Zenkaigers find Copy World makes opposite copies of people. They henshin, but Zyuran, Magine, Vroom and Gaon hurry to help the copied people. Zox pops in and Copy World scans both him and Kaito to produce their copies.
Kaito and Zox fight their copies, allowing Copy World to run off. The others come back to find the messy scene. But the copies shoot at them and force them to dehenshin.
copyKaito and copyZox leave and Kaito decides to chase after them. But Kaito immediately gets arrested after the copyKaito and Zox commit crimes all over the city, especially robbing homes and stores.
Grandma Yacchan can’t believe it as they all watch the breaking news at the shop.
Grandma Yacchan knows it’s just an imposter clone, but she can’t stand seeing someone who looks like Kaito act so horribly. Zyuran asks Secchan to search for the copies and Copy World.
Up on the ship, the Goldtsuikers are also watching the news. “Way to ruin the fun,” Zox says to himself.
At the police station, the detective understands the situation and believes Kaito. But he has to stay here to be safe for now. Just then, Zox busts through the door and breaks Kaito free.
Back up on the ship, Zox says he does not like seeing a copy running around causing trouble and sullying his name. Ge wants to finish this quickly. Kaito feels the same way.
The Kikainoid4 find copyKaito and copyZox. Copy World pops up, but so do realKaito and realZox. Everyone henshins and it’s a free for all.
Kaito and Zox fight themselves while the others deal with Copy World. Secchan suggests they use the Bioman Gear to short-circuit Copy World’s machinery.
Kaito and Zox uphenshin to Super and finish off the copies while the others finish off Copy World.
All the copies are eliminated and Dai Copy World appears. It turns buildings and city infrastructure into copies that can attack the Zenkaigers as they combine into ZyuraGaon and VrooMagine. Copy World makes copies of them and forces them back down to size.
Zox calls on Ricky, but Flint says they should use their Zenkaiju Gears. Kaito goes first and he embiggens, but Zox uses it and shrinks before he embiggens just enough for them to combine into Zenkaiju-Oh.
With a Zenkaiju Dash and Twin Breaker, they finish off the copy mechas and Dai Copy World for good.
Ijirude is annoyed once more by Flint, but he’s been working on something in the meantime. He calls Stacey to give him a new weapon. Ijirude notices Stacey seems out of it, but Stacey says he’s alright.
The Zenkaigers enjoy the city back to being normal.
So it was a simple, straightforward episode. The main takeaway though was a nice character moment for Zox showing that he’s sincere in his promise to Kaito about not pillaging Earth for now.
We saw the copyZox being the lawless pirate one might expect a pirate to be like. So being that copyZox was the opposite of Zox, it’s great to see that Zox really may be at the very least keeping himself in check. If not actually maybe changing his ways a little bit.
It was a half-Zox focus without it being a Zox focus.
The other main point of the episode was the debut of Zenkaiju-Oh of course and that idea definitely fits with the way the others embiggen to become mecha as well. It’s a nice nod to other seasons doing the same I suppose.
Only little insight into the Tojitendo dynamics this week. Ijirude continues churning out plans and devices that haven’t really made a dent. But it was nice to see Stacey wavering a bit at the end.
Overall, an easy, simple and enjoyable episode.

The mecha battle was the highlight of the eps. for me. And seeing Zenkaiju-Oh in action was like watching Kaijuu monster monsters.
Yeah, it’s a cool aesthetic.
I enjoy a clone/doppelganger episode like this.
Nice to see Copy/Evil Kaito which was surreal.
Not much difference with Copy/Evil Zox since he’s… pirate. lol XD
I like that Zenkaju Gear allows both rangers to turn either big (Zenkaizer) and small (TwoKaizer) and combined to form Q-Rex… I mean Zenkaiju-Oh, which has nice design as dinosaur mecha.
Didn’t expect TwoKaizer to become SD similar to his twin brothers.
Overall, a decent episode for introducing new mecha.
Definitely a simple, straightforward episode and enjoyable enough.
