Wishful Thinking: Zaido Should Appear In Tokusatsu Series But Not In A Good Way
I still can't forget how I hate Zaido not because it's a localization of Shaider but because of how horrible it is. It fails as both a Tokusatsu and a TV drama. You want to know how to write fantasy drama? Why didn't GMA-7 take a look at all the sources they could have had to look for inspiration such as the Heisei era Kamen Rider series they aired (ex. Kamen Rider Faiz, Kamen Rider Kabuto) or the Korean fantasy series they were airing prior to that. With the thought that the second Gavan, Geki Jumonji will appear in one episode of Kyuranger together I wanted to write a thought on how Zaido could appear. No, the actors who played in that stupid show don't need to appear together. Having Mark Cielo appear is as impossible as Hiroshi Tsubaraya appearing because both are dead. We can just have stunt doubles play as the Zaido cast or get some Japanese actors to play as the stupid trio.
What ideas can we milk from Zaido's stupidity? So I thought of these plots which might be hilarious especially if you hated Zaido that much. Here's my ideal plots with how to insert them into any mainline Toku shows:
Kyuranger Episode TBA:
The Kyurangers meet both the Dekarangers and the three new Space Sheriffs. The plot involves where three failed Space Sheriff recruits claim to be the descendants of the original Shaider but they're not. They create the new Zaido suits hoping to claim themselves as the Universe' defenders. In reality, they are fake heroes. The episode will feature a lot of stupidity like the Avilo breaking apart. Maybe, we could have been vaporized by the Space Shogunate.
Kamen Rider EX-AID Episode TBA:
Why stop insulting them in Kyuranger when you can also put them in EX-AID? The Zaido trio will appear as fake heroes trying to stop the Bugsters. They all get infected with the Bugsters and they will be the first patients that the protagonists couldn't save. I could have Kuroto Dan massacre them as a result. Kuroto the madman could fool them into believing that they could be heroes which he will only kill them in cold blood after two episodes.
They could still be ridiculed in Kamen Rider Amazons (and give them the most brutal death possible) or get them make a short role where they get vaporized in an upcoming Super Hero Taisen movie. What are your other ways to humiliate Zaido?
