Precious

are the dangerous treasures that the Boukengers and Negative are fighting over. For a relic to be considered a Precious, it must be physically or technologically superior to any current human (or SGS-related) technology.

Each relic that ends up in the Boukengers' hands is placed into a box that materializes from a card-like device.
