Ten million years ago, before humans were on Earth, dragons and sea-men ruled the planet.
However, the seamen and the dragons continue to fight for the map, just as the dragons have no power to fight back. The protoss from the universe have given the dragons 12 mechanical warriors and six transformation machines. Under the power of the two sides, the forces of the two sides began to balance.
However, on the occasion of the heavy casualties on both sides, the Seamen discovered a more suitable water star, and began to talk with the dragons. Finally, the tyrant who ruled himself in the Haizu: the seal of the shark is sealed in the sea that controls the seawater capacity of the earth. After the door, he left the earth after a peace talk with the dragon.
However, the Seamen did not know that they had invented the land-slung machine that was invented by Shark King as a gift into the Longma battleship of the Dragons, but did not know that this was actually a part of the land reorganization plan that the Shark King had created.
In order to prevent the Seamen's plan, six young people with different personalities have obtained the Savers left by the dragons, and turned into warriors with three forces: Two Heaven Guards, Three Earth Guards and one Man Guard.
Giant Saver, go!

- Battle Strike Team Giant Saver is also known as Jushen ZhanJiDui.
- Alternatively, the Chinese title can also be written as ZhanJiDui: Jushen as "ZhanJiDui" is where "Battle Strike Team" is translated from despite the possible misconception.
- According to some behind the scenes images; all of the Team's suit actors are male, including the one's playing the female characters. Although, This is the first Battle Strike Team series to have a first female blue ranger.
