Characters: Gosei Sentai Dairanger

The Dairangers

Ryō/Ryu Ranger | Actor: Keiichi Wada

Daigo/Shishi Ranger | Actor: Tatsuya Nōmi

  • Fingerless Gloves: Seems to wear them whenever he's not working.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: In contrast with his hot-bloodedness, Daigo's the most likely of the heroes to meditate his way to awesome on his own.
  • Groin Attack: Uses one rather blatantly early on.
  • Hot-Blooded: In a loose cannon sort of way. This is a guy who gets sucked up by a Gohma and then punches his way out. When he gets angry, expect awesomeness to follow.
  • Large Ham: Old!Daigo seems to run on this.
  • The Lancer
  • Master of Illusion: Has created illusionary doors, tanks, cops, Yamanote-sennote  trains, Kujaku on a tricycle... And they all hurt.
  • Mundane Utility: He once used Ki to flip out his Aura Changer, rather than pull it out himself.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: In contrast to all the tropes mentioned in this section such as Hot-Blooded and Unstoppable Rage, put Daigo in front of children or animals and watch him turn into the kindest man with the most ridiculous faces you will have ever met.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Sensitive Guy to Shōji's Manly Man
  • Signature Move: Kirigakurenote 
  • Simple Staff: Shishi Konbōnote 
  • Unstoppable Rage: Daigo runs on this, especially in episodes featuring him.
  • What the Hell, Hero?

Shōji/Tenma Ranger | Actor: Ei Hamura

Kazu/Kirin Ranger | Actor: Keisuke Tsuchiya

  • Camp Straight: A beautician who works in salon. Totally not gay.note 
  • Drunken Boxing: And has the most difficult pose as a result.note 
  • Epic Flail: Kirin Ku-setsu Bennote 
  • The Heart
  • Making Use of the Twin: In #25, when the Copy Empress made evil duplicates of the Dairangers, Kazu's clone was played by Keisuke Tsuchiya's twin brother, Daisuke. The roles were later reversed when Daisuke went on to play Blue Beet on Juukou B-Fighter two years later, while Keisuke played his Evil Counterpart Shadow Beet.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Uncommonly for a Sentai hero, Kazu usually wears a three-piece suit.
  • Signature Move: Jikan Gaeshinote 
  • Time Master: He can rewind time as he sees fit, although he doesn't use it much.

Rin/Hōō Ranger | Actress: Natsuki Takahashi

Kō/Kiba Ranger | Actor: Hisashi Sakai

Gorma Tribe

Colonel Shadam

Lieutenant Colonel Gara

Once Kujaku's childhood friend that got a scar in exchange for saving her life from many years ago. Thinking that Kujaku had betrayed her, she joined Gorma and trapped Kujaku in a Mirror Make-up Artist. She's revealed to have died long ago in a battle after she joined Gorma and became an angel in heaven.

Major Zydos

Emperor Gorma XV

General Tenpou

  • Jerkass: Humiliates Shadam to the point that Shadam becomes a *Butt Monkey* to the Gorma Palace attendants.


General Shadam's first son and one of the Gorma Generals. He was killed by a falling rock and resurrected by the emperor. He's later revealed to be Kō's older twin brother.

  • Brother Brother Incest: Not that serious, but Akomaru says to Kou "did you like holding my hand back then Kibaranger?"
  • Enemy Civil War: Seems to have this with his father Shadam.
  • Enfante Terrible: And how. Most of this is likely attributed to his father Shadam's mistreatment of him.
  • Jerkass: His final plan was to blackmail Ko to join the Gorma with his mother's life. When he did not comply he blew her away so Ko could never find her again and slightly rubs it in his face before he dies the first time
  • Missing Mom: Subverted. She was captured and held by Gorma the entire time. He used her as hostage in fact
  • Manipulative Bastard: In one episode we see Ko befriend a new girl attending his school who has an abusive mother. She pinches her, makes her buy dinner on her own, and shows disregard for her kidnapping when Ko caught her playing tennis leisurely - she outright makes a commentary that "mothers like her exist". Sounds over-the-top and forced right? That's correct because both mother and Ko's friend were the Ring Priestess and Akomaru in disguise. It was all a plot to get Ko to despise his mother and become a Gorma from his hatred.
  • Royal Brat: Got to have a high position in Gorma due to General Tenpou raising him after Shadam abandoned him. While Shadam's abusive treatment warrants understanding for Akomaru's temper he still gets annoying with how he constantly eggs his father to the point he dares him to hurt him. Also he cuts Shadam's face with a feather while he was having a victory toast.

Jin Matoba/Demon Boxer Jin

Other Characters

Daijinryu (Great God Dragon)

A dragon god who's task it is to keep the peace across the universe. And since the battle between the Gohma and the Dairangers threatens to distrupt that peace, he comes to earth to interfere. But unfortunately, Daijinryu does not make any difference between good and evil, and is even willing to wipe out humanity to stop the conflict between the two factions.
