King Torture's monsters always have some soldiers alongside them.

When the monsters are defeated, they scream "Viva Torture!" and explode. The soldiers, however, have been seen lying defeated on the floor even after a monster's explosion:

Four King Torture's soldiers defeated by the Flamenco Girls

Do they also explode and vanish after being defeated?
Or have they been being taken into custody for questioning or something of the sort?
Or are they somehow able to get away?

I think to understand this its important to recognize that the show is all about celebrating Tokusatsu tropes (think Power Rangers). This is why, as in most Tokusatsu shows, all the bosses explode. Now, in most Tokusatsu shows, the minions are just beaten up and then ignored. Frequently they just seem to disappear between shots. There is no particular "canon" explanation of what happens to them for the genre as a whole. Since Samurai Flamenco is emulating these shows, it also ignores the question of what happens to the minions.

So the answer is that they probably do the same thing that minions do in every other show, but nobody knows what that is.
