Saroge-DT of the Imitation appeared in 2010 TV series called Tensou Sentai Goseiger. Saroge-DT of the Imitation (イミテイションのサロゲDTImiteishon no Saroge Dī Tī) is a sea sponge-themed member of the Machine Onslaught Empire Matrintis. Built by Robogog after Metal Alice captures the real Datas in a hostage scenario, Saroge-DT was both an experiment to gather information on Gosei World technology and to understand how an outmoded machine could be allied with the Gosei Angels. The Goseiger initially encounter him due to Alata misreading the wind thinking that it was Datas, even as Hyde used Matrintis' trademark plasma bursts to find them instead. The Matroid quickly proves itself as the superior of Datas and the Goseiger, reading all their moves and defeating them with ease.
However, when Hyde and the real Datas return to the battle, Saroge-DT is caught off guard by the effects of Gosei Blue's Camoumirage Card, which confuses him into seeing all of the Goseiger as other Goseiger using the same attacks but in different forms. This defeats the analyzer before being destroyed by the Miracle Gosei Knight Dynamic, then enlarged and beaten by Datas Hyper before he and Gosei Ultimate finally destroy the Matroid. Acting more arrogant than Datas while appearing similar to Datas Hyper, Saroge-DT has a personality quirk of ending all of his sentences with "death" (デス desu), as opposed to Datas' typical "desu".
Possessing similar computational abilities as Datas, it uses its analysis ability to read and defeat all of the Goseiger's skills, based upon the basic knowledge that the Goseiger have a specific base set that does not change. Likewise it is equipped with a barrage of missiles on itself.
