The other members of Battle Fever are two female spies (who when not out spying wear brown uniforms) and a robotic minna bird. The bird's negative comments about Battle Fever annoy them. The required child is Masaru, the younger brother of one of the spies. He is NOT played by the Jinzo Ningen Kikaida Masaru actor. The other spy has a teenage sister.


Penta Force 1

Battle Fever defeated the human sized monsters with "Penta Force". There were two versions of "Penta Force" In the early episodes the Battle Fever J members formed Penta Force Cannon from their Command Bats and fired an explosive shell at the monster.

Penta Force 2

In later episodes they throw their Command Bats into the air, forming Penta Boomarang, which flew into the monster blowing it up.

Big Bazer

Battle Fever J was the first Sentai to feature a giant robot used to destroy giant monsters. Starting with episode 5, when the human sized monsters of Egos are in danger of being defeated a giant robot "younger brother" is sent to take their place. To fight these giants one of the Battle Fever team radios Shogun Tetsuzan Kurama at Battle Fever's underwater base, Big Bazer, to request the release of the flying submarine Battle Shark. Most of the time it is Battle Japan who calls for Battle Shark but each of the others has also made the call at least once.

Battle Shark

Battle Shark is armed with Tail, Wing, and Vulcan Missiles, Guns of Navarone, and depth bombs.

Battle Fever Robo

To finish off the giant robots Battle Shark releases the giant robot Battle Fever Robo. Battle Fever Robo is armed with Lightning Sword, Cross Fever throwing knives, Stick Lancer, Chain Crusher, Attack Lancer trident and Fever Axe. The throwing knives are stored in sheathes on Battle Fever Robo's legs the other weapons and a shield are sent to Battle Fever Robo from Battle Shark. Battle Japan, Battle France, Battle Kenya, Battle Cossack and Miss America have rockets in their boots which allow them to fly ("Jet On") into Battle Fever Robo's stomach.


Three MachinesBattle Fever Car

Battle Cossack, Battle France and Battle Kenya travel by motorcycles, Three Machines. Battle Japan and Miss America ride in Battle Fever Car.


Egos

The Battle Fever team fights the evil Egos cult, lead by the mysterious Satan Egos, his priest Commander Hedda (played by Ishibashi, Masashi who was Iron Claw in J.A.K.Q. Dengeki Tai) and American Egos officer Salome.

Battle Fever J is different from most tokusatsu in that the villains do not know who the heroes are in the first episode. Egos learns who each of the Battle Fever members are slowly over the course of the series. They don't discover who Miss America is until episode 24 but then she's replaced by a different woman, who's name Egos does not know. In episode 26 Egos finally learns the names of all the Battle Fever members.
