Gekisoumaru is on the Swordbot Shinobi Team and transforms from a ninja style robot into a lion, and his third mode forms the top, middle, or bottom of the Swordbot Samurai Team's three combined robot forms (GoGekisou, GoSensui, and GoHishou). Two pieces of Gekisoumaru's beast mode detach to form kunai-style swords that can be stored on his shoulders or attached to his "Vivit Bute" whip weapon. The Kabuto helmet forms the GoGekisou super-robot head and can be combined with the other two kabuto to form a cannon weapon or shield. Gekisoumaru's kabuto can also transform into a small rocket that can store on his back in robot mode or attach to his head in beast mode. Gekisoumaru features electronic lights and sounds that are unique to each mode. Combined version sounds and lights will vary depending on which figure is forming the head/torso of the combined robot.
