* Usually, in a Franchise/SuperSentai series, there's one main writer, and about 3 secondary writers, average. And while the main apparently handles the overall plotline, they take turns writing episodes. But not for Shinkenger, no. A look at the episode table for the series (where the writer and director of each episode are also displayed) on Wikipedia Japan reveals that Shinkenger had only 2 sub-writers, and both of them wrote only 7 episodes in total, all of them side-episodes. In other words, YasukoKobayashi wrote 42 Acts, and managed the plot, characters and all the twists of this whole damn thing. Give the head writer a well deserved Crown.[[note]]Put it beside the one for ''Series/KamenRiderDenO'', for which she wrote all but ''four'' of the 49 episodes.[[/note]]

* Act 48: [[spoiler:The Seal is useless.]] Karou has been struck down, her henshin form disrupted. The others are down and injured. Who will save her from Dokouku's attack? Why, [[BigDamnHeroes her shadow and the Kuroko, of course]]. And note... Takeru is STILL without henshin.

** The first time we see Takeru fight, ''while the opening song plays'' is Act 1. Takes on a group of the mooks alone, and then has a nice drink brought to him. Right where they fought. {{Badass}}.

** The battle with Dayu, leading up to [[spoiler:Juzo]]'s {{Badass}} appearance by cutting the [=GoRinDan=] with his own sword. Appropriately for his debut.

** Over in the secondary plot, Ryunosuke continues to show that under the LargeHam is one {{Badass}} Samurai and a worthy second-in-command; from his SuperMode with blade strikes like breaking waves to his simple-yet-effective rallying of the troops against the dream-eater Ayakashi's second life. Challenging someone who trained all his life to be a top-notch Samurai is a bad idea.

* In Act 31, Takeru uses [[WhipSword Kyoryumaru]] from TheMovie again, swiftly whipping through hordes of the seeming endless Kusare Nanashi. Then when he faces the Ayakashi, just to show off how {{badass}} he is, he chooses not to turn around and face the Ayakashi, but let Kyoryumaru furiously whip him while his back is turned. The BigDamnHeroes Roll Call definitely deserves mention as well:

* Act 44: So the latest Ayakashi is blasting everyone left and right and [[spoiler:pulling a ManaDrain on Takeru]]. With no other options, Takeru goes into SuperMode and brings out the Mogyu Bazooka, but it's no use as the Ayakashi quickly teleports and blasts him from behind. However, Takeru was [[DeliberateInjuryGambit expecting that]] and as his Shinken Red suit comes off, he turns and fires Mogyu Bazooka's Gedou Fukumetsu, ending the Ayakashi's first life. He might not be the true head of the Shiba Clan, but that doesn't disqualify him from being {{badass}}.
** Speaking of the head of the Shiba Clan, Kaoru certainly shows that being a {{badass}} runs in the Shiba Clan bloodline. In her debut, she takes out the latest Ayakashi's second life ''with just Shishi Origami''. And this is after [=DaiKaiShinkenOh=] ''failed'' to defeat the Ayakashi.

** In a move similar to the finale of [[spoiler:GurrenLagann]], the Shinkengers have the auxiliary origami detach as [=SamuraiHaoh=] moves in towards Dokoku - (The cockpit getting noticably damaged in the process - leaving just [=ShinkenOh=]. As they close in, Dokoku stabs [=ShinkenOh=], but ''[[DeliberateInjuryGambit that's exactly what they were going for]]''. With Dokoku in place, they unleash all their Mojikara into one final Daishinken Samurai Giri, bringing an end to Dokoku forever.

*** Notably, he does not run to Takeru panicking about his lord's well being like he would have at any other point in the series. There's nothing Narmy at all about him this time. Just cold, serious silence as he saves his lord's life.

* Act 20 is the biggest example of the Shinkengers' {{camaraderie}}. The Ayakashi of the week ''just'' happened to [[spoiler:steal Kotoha's soul and left her to die in 24 hours ''on her birthday which everyone has been secretly preparing for'']]. As if that hasn't pissed them off enough, he stalled further by not coming up from the River, [[SmugSnake and bragged about doing so as he retreated]]. When the Shinkengers[[note]]Each one willing to [[spoiler:[[HeroicSacrifice sacrifice their humanity to follow it to Sanzu.]][[/note]] finally got their hands on him thanks to Genta's [[XanatosSpeedChess quick thinking]], what ensued would most appropriately be described as a [[{{CurbStompBattle}} one-sided slaughterfest]] featuring every single weapon in their arsenal, each active Samurai getting a piece of the bastard, and [[spoiler: the newly finished Ebi Origami]]. ''Don't'' touch anyone on the team unless you're up for suicide...
