"THE POWER" is a mysterious, highly unstable energy with tremendous energizing and destructive potential. It is known to restore fossilized material, generate time-space wormholes, temporarily restore damaged computer programs, preserve human souls and provide nearly unlimited practical energy. It is generated by the planet Jupiter. Any mechanoid or other being that has been infused with "THE POWER" glows a bright orange color - this overrides the green glow normally produced by the G-Stone as well as the red produced by the J-Jewel, but alternates with the golden glow produced by the Goldion Hammer.
In the audiodrama Dark Robot Adventure Spirit, it is also learned that the main computer of the manned Jupiros 5 probe had obtained sentience upon exposure to "THE POWER." The computer—calling itself Yupitos—had intended to return to Earth, where it threatened to "link" all of humanity to itself. It was destroyed by Soldato J-002 and the J-Ark.
"THE POWER" was utilized by both GGG and the Z-Master in the climactic episodes of the television series, though neither side was ultimately capable of controlling it. Following the Z-Master's destruction, certain parties in the UN began to take an interest in using "THE POWER" for their own ends; in King of Braves GaoGaiGar FINAL, Koutarou Taiga—fully aware of "THE POWER"'s potential instability—is seen trying to take a stand against these moves, arguing that it should never again be used by mankind.
In the trailer for the upcoming GaoGaiGar work The King of Braves GaoGaiGar Project Z, various scenes indicate that the measure to develop Jupiter passed without Taiga there to oppose it. Genesic GaoGaiGar is also shown glowing orange, though whether this is the result of "THE POWER" or the Genesic Aura is debatable.
The official American release of GaoGaiGar romanizes "THE POWER" as "ZA POWAA", most likely to retain the "exotic" sound of the term for American audiences.
