The Gohukuseitai (五福星隊 Gofukuseitai; lit. "Five Blessing Stars Unit") is a group of five elite Jiang Shi created by Tao Yúan.
These are the elite Jiang Shi of the Tao Family. They were made with the corpses of humans who had mastered several fields. As Jiang Shi, their bodies are not only made of human bodies but also have animal parts and mechanical components that were added to their corpses. Tao Yúan trained them to be loyal to the Tao Family and its justice and they soon became great supporters.
Until sent into battle they are kept in tubes filled with water behind doors that are sealed by a chained lock, though Yúan has shown the ability to shatter the lock by merely pointing at it. Yúan released them to properly welcome Asakura Yoh and his group when they came to rescue his son Tao Ren. The Gohukuseitai were eventually all defeated by the rescue party and the freed Lee Pyron.
At an unknown point Yúan rebuild their destroyed bodies and years later they, alongside other Jiang Shi, were used to save Jun from an attack by the Dong Clan.

In the Kang Zeng Bang Extras and the 2021 anime series, they are given a far more detailed skin coloring than in the 2001 anime series, where they had purely purple skin similar to all other Jiang Shi, with their animal body parts being the exception.
- They are an homage to Gosei Sentai Dairanger.
