Land Pollution Minister Yogostein, his full name being Baron Yogorex de Stein, is the golden-armored general who leads the Gaiark's land-based Barbaric Machine Beasts, using the Yogospear as his weapon and ends his sentences with "Nari". His name is from the Japanese word for "to soil" (汚す, yogosu). He is the main antagonist of the first half of Engine Sentai Go-Onger.
Engine Sentai Go-Onger
Though a serious sort, he rejoiced to see his subordinate Hiramechimedes arrive to aid him in destroying the Go-Ongers. Despite continuous failure, his faith and esteem he felt for his vice-minister never faded, as he showed concern for Hiramechimedes' well-being. He was in a state of mourning, since his death, before leaving Hellgaille Palace to clear his head and find himself. By the time he returned, Yogostein was more rage-filled and decides to rely on his own power, creating Hammer Banki to destroy the world, rather than remake it into an ideal environment for the Gaiark. It was after his creation was destroyed that Yogostein saw the error of his ways as the other Ministers forgive him for his reckless action. However, Yogostein resumes acting on his own when he begins a new project to unearth the Horonderthal from his rest, setting up a chain of events that would not only despose of Go-On Red, but being able to upgrade himself as the new Horonderthal King to rust the entire city. However, his upgrade is canceled by Engine-Oh G12 before being destroyed by the revived Go-On Red in a one-on-one duel.
Shinkenger vs. Go-Onger
In Shinkenger vs Go-Onger, he was rebuilt by Batcheed alongside the other Gaiark Ministers. However, he and the others didn't want to fight, deciding to retire at the bottom of the Sanzu River instead.
Gokaiger vs. Gavan
He was among villains captured within the Space Prison in Makuu Space in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger vs. Uchuu Keiji Gavan: The Movie and released by the Gokaigers since they caused a big ruckus within.
- Like his two partners, Yogostein remains technically dead due to the events of Go-Onger; though appearing in cameos in both Shinkenger and Gokaiger, he remains a wandering spirit.
- When entering battle alongside the other pollution Ministers, Yogostein says, "The Dried Cracked Ground! I am Land Pollution Minister Yogostein" (乾きひび割れた土よ！ 我、害地大臣ヨゴシュタイン, Kawaki hibiwareta tsuchi yo! Ware, Gaichi Daijin Yogoshutain), while when attacking with other Land Pollution Ministry members he says, "The Earth soiled by a hateful guy, Land Pollution Minister Yogostein!" (大地を汚す憎い奴・害地大臣ヨゴシュタインなり, Daichi o yogosu nikui yatsu, Gaichi Daijin Yogoshutain nari). He performs Yogospear Grind (ヨゴシュピアグラエンド, Yogoshupia Guraendo) with the Yogospear. With Hiramechimedes and Happa Banki, they can perform the Land Pollution Gattai DoDoDo Ground (害地合体ドドドグラウンド, Gaichi Gattai Dododo Guraundo).
