The Fourth Super Sentai Series. It got the highest ratings of all sentai (at least up to 1988), but is least popular among Japanese fans(as opposed to Japanese children). Cf. Ultraman Taro, another series unpopular with fans though popular with children. 50episodes Dr. Hongou, founder of the Future Science Laboratory, confirms that Deathdark has begun its nefarious activities at Wolfborg Castle in Germany. Attacked by Deathdark, he is saved by Akama Ken'ichi and returns to Japan, where he has the Comboyputer select five people, including Akama, to become the Great Task Force Goggle V. The team succeeds in their first mission against Shell Mozoo and the giant robot Fankong. After numerous defeats, Fuehrer Taboo revives Grand Marshal Deathmark from a long sleep. To reorganize Deathdark, Deathmark sentences Doctors Zazoriya and Igaana to death. Deathdark creates seemingly indestructible Super Synthetic Beasts, but the team copes with this by devising the Goggle Golden Spear attack. In the end, Deathmark discovers the super energy 'Hightron', which they use to create their final weapon, the Dark Cannon. At the same time, Deathdark discovers the location of Goggle V's base and destroys it. Deathmark sends the Hightron-powered Cheetah and Bear Mozoo / Kongs after the team, but they, like their lesser Mozoo and Kong predecessors fail, even though Deathgiller pilots Bear Kong himself. Dr. Hongou builds the team a new base, from which they set off to break into Deathtopia and defeat Taboo, who reveals and enlarges himself at last, with the eye-poking EarthSword Electron Galactic missile move.
