Characters

The United Fire-Defense Agency/Rescue Fire

The Rescue Fire (レスキューファイアー, Resukyū Faiā) team is a newly formed special team called the Super-Fire Specialist Team (超火災特化部隊, Chōkasai Tokka Butai) in the United Fire-Defense Agency (世界消防庁, Sekai Shōbō Chō) or "UFDA", the organization behind the Rescue Force team. The Rescue Force team was sent overseas and is currently based in the Europe branch. The Rescue Fire team disbanded temporarily after the final battle in the last episode, only to be reassembled a year later. The artificial satellite Rescue Eye (レスキューアイ, Resukyū Ai) detects a Super-Fire. The Rescue Fire team is normally stationed at the Fire Phoenix (ファイアーフェニックス, Faiā Fenikkusu) in Tateishi City (楯石シティ, Tateishi Shiti). The Fire Phoenix can switch from Fortress Mode (フォートレスモード, Fōtoresu Mōdo) to flying Space Mode (スペースモード, Supēsu Mōdo) and assumes Spiral Highway (スパイラルハイウェイ, Supairaru Haiwei) when launching the Rescue Dashes. The Fire Phoenix Space Mode's Final Rescue is Freezing Cannon (フリージングキャノン, Furījingu Kyanon) which fires twin icy balls at the enemy to freeze them before a Phoenix Crash (フェニックスクラッシュ, Fenikkusu Kurasshu).

Jakaen

The Jakaen (ジャカエン, Jakaen, "Evil Fire") are a group of fire demons who gave humans fire long ago. However, after seeing their gift used for selfish reasons to the point of endangering the Earth, the Jakaen made it their goal to make people suffer by causing Super-Fire (超火災, Chōkasai). Sealed long ago by a warrior with the freezing powers of five Blue Pearls, the Jakaen's release into the world was the reason for the formation of the Rescue Fire team.

Two or more Fire Majin can merge into a more powerful Gattaien (ガッタイエン, Gattaien) when their commanders engage Revenge Fire at the same time.

The tables soon turn when Fire Dragon is scrambled and freezes Biken with Ice Tornado before smashing it with the Dragon Attack.

Rescue Vehicles

Rescue Dashes

The Rescue Dashes (レスキューダッシュ, Resukyū Dasshu) are the Core Units for the larger Rescue Vehicles, each equipped with a Safety Field barrier. These can be utilized in newer vehicle models for execution of either a Dragon Attack or a Falcon Attack.

Rescue Striker

The Rescue Striker (レスキューストライカー, Resukyū Sutoraikā) is a large-scale water truck Rescue Vehicle assigned to Fire-3 prior to the completion of Turbo Dragon. It was borrowed from Rescue Force. Its Final Rescue is the Water Cannon (ウォーターキャノン, Wōtā Kyanon), shooting a jet of liquid nitrogen. It once combined with the Rescue Drill to become the Drill Striker in order to destroy Drillen with its Final Rescue, Drill Boost. While the Fire Dragon was being repaired, Fire-1 was given the Rescue Striker to pilot until it sacrificed itself to save Fire-1 from Kanitanken's attack. It has since been repaired, and is currently again in use of Rescue Force's R1.

2nd Generation Rescue Vehicles

The Rescue Vehicles (レスキュービークル, Resukyū Bīkuru) used by the Rescue Fire and Sky teams have two configuration modes: Scramble Mode (スクランブルモード, Sukuranburu Mōdo) and Rescue Mode (レスキューモード, Resukyū Mōdo).

This formation has access to Drain Water (ドレインウォーター, Dorein Wōtā), Dragon Shot (ドラゴンショット, Doragon Shotto), Dragon Ladder (ドラゴンラダー, Doragon Radā), and Dragon Anchor (ドラゴンアンカー, Doragon Ankā) cables functions. Its Final Rescue is the Ice Tornado (アイストルネード, Aisu Torunēdo) which fires twin streams of icy water at the enemy to freeze them, before a Dragon Attack (ドラゴンアタック, Doragon Atakku) shoots the flaming Rescue Dash-1 to finish the target off.
Dozer Dragon (ドーザードラゴン, Dōzā Doragon)
The Dozer Dragon is a medium-scale Rescue Vehicle assigned to Fire-2 which has a bulldozer Rescue Mode, which originally had a flaw in the cooling system that shut the vehicle down after 45 seconds. It is able to execute the Dragon Tornado Drop (ドラゴン竜巻落とし, Doragon Tatsumaki Otoshi) and the Tough Machine Drop using the Dragon Bucket (ドラゴンバケット, Doragon Baketto). Other abilities include shooting Dragon Anchor cables. It can also fling another Rescue Vehicle at the target to unleash the other Rescue Vehicle's Final Rescue using the Dragon Bucket in a Combination Attack. Its Final Rescue is the Bind Crash (バインドクラッシュ, Baindo Kurasshu), which creates a freeze wave that makes its way to the target before the Dozer Dragon charges at it once frozen, lifting it into the air. It then executes a Dragon Attack with the flaming Rescue Dash-2 to finish the job.
Turbo Dragon (ターボドラゴン, Tābo Doragon)
The Turbo Dragon is a medium-scale large blower Rescue Vehicle assigned to Fire-3 with a turbofan Rescue Mode that allows it to execute the blast attack from the Dragon Turbofan (ドラゴンターボファン, Doragon Tābofan).

X-Dragon

The X-Dragon (エクスドラゴン, Ekusu Doragon) is a large-scale ambulance Rescue Vehicle with AI and VVEL engine assigned to Fire-1, who possessed a strong enough Rescue Soul to use it. It can also remote control it through the Rescue Megaphone. It can assume either Vehicle Mode (ビークルモード, Bīkuru Mōdo), able to shield itself generating the Safety Field (セイフティフィールド, Seifuti Fīrudo) and shoot the Drain Water, and Drill Mode (ドリルモード, Doriru Mōdo). The X-Dragon can also transform into the humanoid Robot Mode (ロボットモード, Robotto Mōdo) named X-Dragon Robo (エクスドラゴンロボ, Ekusu Doragon Robo), able to execute the Final Rescue X Meteor Punch (エクス流星パンチ, Ekusu Ryūsei Panchi), which it delivers a powerful fiery punch to the enemy.

GaiaLeon

GaiaLeon (ガイアレオン, Gaiareon) is a large-scale driverless Rescue Vehicle with AI and VVEL engine which has an excavator Vehicle Mode and a lion type robot Beast Mode (ビーストモード, Bīsuto Mōdo). As a result of being prideful, GaiaLeon acts on his own whim and listens to those he can acknowledge. Its Final Rescue is the Leon Burst (レオンバースト, Reon Bāsuto), which fires a powerful freezing bullet which splits into 4 lion-shaped bullets that freezes and destroy the enemy on contact.

Rescue Tools

Rescue Megaphone

The Suit-Up Megaphone Rescue Megaphone (着装メガホン レスキューメガホーン, Chakusō Megahon Resukyū Megahōn) is the team's common suit-up tool with AI. Shifting its lever to various modes allows the user to relay commands. Fire-1's Rescue Megaphone is replaced with one possessing a TF-Q robot mode. Nicknamed Q-suke (Qスケ, Kyūsuke), the robot is designed to help Tatsuya become more professional. Q-suke is also outfitted with the ability to shoot lasers from his eyes.

Tri-Basher

The Rescue Fire Extinguisher Tri-Basher (レスキュー消火器トライバッシャー, Resukyū Shōkaki Torai Basshā) is the team's common rescue tool with three modes. Sword and Gun Modes can execute a powerful attack, by performing a Dragon Charge (ドラゴンチャージ, Doragon Chāji) on a Rescue Soul.

Jet Caliber

The Suit-Up Flying Sword Jet Caliber (着装飛剣ジェットカリバー, Chakusō Hiken Jetto Karibā) is the Sky Team's common suit-up and rescue tool, normally kept in the Sky Team's Rescue Dash vehicles until needed. It is usually in Jet Mode (ジェットモード, Jetto Mōdo) until suit-up. Voicing to its microphone on a pommel to various modes allows the user to relay commands. Allows the Sky Team to fly using its Jet Burner (ジェットバーナー, Jetto Bānā) function. Sword Mode can execute a powerful attack, by performing a Falcon Charge (ファルコンチャージ, Farukon Chāji) on a Rescue Soul.

X-Basher

The Rescue Extinguishing Sword X-Basher (レスキュー消火剣エクスバッシャー, Resukyū Shōkaken Ekusu Basshā) is Fire-1 X's personal suit-up and rescue tool. It was created from the Ryudouken (龍導剣, Ryūdōken, Dragon Guiding Sword), an ancient weapon with five Blue Orbs (青き珠, Aoki Tama) installed on it which defeated Donkaen in the past. Over time, the orbs have disappeared and the sword became embedded in its resting place behind Donkaen's throne until Asuka finds and frees it. Though it was heavy and rusted, the Ryudouken transforms when it reacts to Fire-1's Rescue Soul. Eventually, the X-Basher regains the Blue Pearls of "Faith" (, Shin) from Ryujin Village, "Purity" (, Sei) from the Dragon's Marsh after Jokaen took it, "Joy" (, Ki) from Nagoya City after Jokaen took it, "Love" (, Ai) from Lake Motosu, and "Friendship" (, Tomo) from Mongolia, which was Asuka's blue stone. Turning its key to various modes allows the user to relay commands. Its Sword Mode is activated by spinning its X-Wheel (エクスホイール, Ekusu Hoīru) and performing a Dragon Charge on a Rescue Soul. The weapon was left behind with Donkaen after Fire 1X chose to seal him by freezing him instead dealing a fatal blow.

Rescue Breaker

The Rescue Breaker (レスキューブレイカー, Resukyū Bureikā) is the team's other common handheld tool with eight modes, previously used by the Rescue Force. It is usually in Mobile Mode (モバイルモード, Mobairu Mōdo) until needed.
