Gakurandar (ガクランダー) is the commander of the Gurendos army. While he is the de-facto leader of the group in the field, he actually answers to the computer Dylan.

He can remove his coat and throw it over enemies to trap them, and has little patience with idiots. Which is a shame, as all of his subordinates are morons.

JeTan as the key factor stopping his plans, he set a plan in motion, trapping Rotary Kid, Twincam Jimmy and their human friends Akira Amachi and Zen Ogawa, and contacting R. JeTan to tell him to come alone and free them. Gakurandar, Sorikondar and Suji then attacked R. JeTan, who might have been overwhelmed if the prisoners hadn't escaped and backed their leader up, forcing the Gurendos into another retreat. Muddy Duel


Gakurandar's next scheme was to build a huge super-cannon to fire on the Grand Whale, but despite a ring of aerial mines defending it the weapon was destroyed by the Winner Robo. Dangerous Grand Whale He then planned to use a mind-control satellite to thin out the Algo Army, but the station was blown up by the Battle Hackers before they were weakened enough for his army to march in. Destroy the Fortress Satellite After these failures he began to lose favour with Dylan, with Yasand's plan to steal electromagnetic missiles very much ruffling his feathers.

JeTan and Mach Blaster. Let's Do It! Gakurandar tasked Shinobis and Igarn with destroying the Algo Army computer RIM, but they were unsuccessful. Special Command - Destroy RIM After losing Sorikondar, Kariagen and Shibumidas to the Battle Hackers he faced the unit outside the Gurendos' Blood Country headquarters, engaging R. JeTan once again. The fight was even until R. JeTan shattered his sword, the blade embedding in Gakurandar's chest and killing him. Goodbye - Battle Forever

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • His name is a pun on gakuran, the style of Japanese school uniform his coat resembles.
  • A less flamboyant early concept of Gakurandar was featured in a story page of TV Land.
