[VILLAIN] Basco ta Jolokia.
Japanese name: バスコ・タ・ジョロキア
Romanized name: Basuko Ta Jorokia
Alignment: Red Pirates, Space Empire Zangyack, self
Villain Type: Rogue
From: Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger vs. Uchuu Keiji Gavan: THE MOVIE
- His name is inspired by the tabasco pepper and the bhut jolokia (ghost pepper).
- The packaging for Basco’s S.H. Figuarts figure spells his name as “Vasco” in English. In an episode of Gokaiger, though, “Basco” is seen on a wanted poster. “Basco ta Jolokia” is reminiscent of “Vasco da Gama,” the name of a Portuguese conquistador.
- Basco’s weapons are the Caliblade (カリブレード; Karibureedo) cutlass and the Caliblaster (カリブラスター; Kariburasutaa) gun. He used the Rapparatta (ラッパラッター; Rapparattaa) to forcefully remove Greater Powers as well as summon ranger clones.
- An avatar of Basco appeared in Go-Busters vs. Gokaiger, but it was quickly defeated.
