The finale of Toho and Konami's ChouSeiShin trilogy, Chou Sei Kantai Sazer X debuted in 2005.
In the year 3000, an evil band of Space Pirates have conquered Earth and covered it in eternal darkness. To stop them, three ships, and their heroic pilots, must go back in time to thwart the initial invasion of the pirates. They recruit a modern man, Takuto Ando, to become the third man of their elite Sazer-X fighting team. Their mission: find the twelve Cosmo Capsules before the pirates do.
The Sazer team:
- Takuto Ando/Lio-Sazer: The Hero
- Ado/Eagle-Sazer: The Lancer
- Kane Lucano/Beetle-Sazer: The Big Guy
- Commander Shark/Shark-Sazer: The Mentor, Sixth Ranger and part-pirate.
- Gordo/Sazer Gordo: The Smart Guy; an American.
- Remy Freede: The Chick and Takuto's support technician.
This show features examples of:

- Death by Irony: Grouza, the Evil Genius of Neo Descal, constantly demeans and humiliates her ancestors despite the fact that they need to be kept alive to maintain the timeline and keep Neo Descal in existence. Later on when Thundera shows up, Grouza dismisses her as unimportant to the timeline because she's not in any records. Turns out that Grouza is a descendant of Thundera and Blaird, and when Sazer X inadvertently stops them from meeting, Grouza is erased from history.
