|~ Yokubarido's final words before his death.|
Yokubarido is a barnacles/suit of diamonds/trump card-themed commander and is the leader of Zangyack's "Special Destruction Unit", a gambler assigned to utilize Gigarollum on planets that prove troublesome. He's also the main antagonist in episode 10 of 2011 TV series called Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.
Yokubarido made his first appearance on the Special Destruction Unit Ship in the Zangyack fleet, but here's the catch due to Joe's insistence to spare the ship, because the ship uses a cannon that uses ammo made of Gigarollum and destroying the ship would have caused the Gigarollum aboard to explode and scorch the Earth's surface.
A while later the ship itself was park at an abandoned mining field as Luka and Joe used the power of Boukenger as they sneak under the ship as they board it. While inside the duo puts on a disguise that looks sort a like Gormin as they explore the interior of the ship. A while later they spotted the Gigarollum until a pair of Sugormin arrived takes them to the break room to play a game of poker. So Lila happily accepts the challenge as she used her sleeve trick as she cheats her way. However this kind of action has attracted every Gormin on the ship until it was stopped when Yokubarido when he exposed Luka's cheating and then her and Joe's disguises.
However since he's a gambler with respect as they managed to stow away on his ship, so he offered them in a game of chance and here's why if they beat him in this game Yokubarido will let them go, but if they lost to him they must surrender to him so he can collect their bounty. So with that said Yokubarido used his own deck of cards as he used sent a couple of cards to the pirates as Luka offered Joe to take her place instead despite the disadvantage against him.
After the cheating method that Yokubarido pulled he'd shown a four of a kind, but Joe has miraculously beats Yokubarido with a royal flush. As he won't accepts his lost Yokubarido orders the crew to eliminate Joe and Luka until the rest of the pirates arrived in poorly Gormin disguises. Turns out this card game was just a distraction as the trio who'd also snuck on board and into the armory as they stole the Gigarollum. After that the pirates transformed and battle Yokubarido and his crew. However while in the armory GokaiGreen placed a bomb in their to which he sets it off prompting the crew to abandoned ship as it sunk and then they were forced to watch as Navi took the Gigarollum to the Gokai Galleon.
With that said Yokubarido sent his crew to eliminate the pirates. Once the crew were wiped out Yokubarido fires out his exploding cards at the pirates prompting them to use the keys that belonged to J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai as they bring out the Big Bomber to eliminate the remaining Sugormins. After that Yokubarido was then defeated by this finisher called Final Wave.
However Insarn used the gun and open fire on Yokubarido to enlarged him prompting the team to bring out GokaiOh and battle him. However during the giant battle the robot presented the Gigarollum in the palm of its giant hand. Instead of giving it back to him they tossed it into space as it eliminates the most of the fleet. After that they formed GaoGokaiOh and finished Yokubarido off with this finisher called Gokai Animal Heart.
