The Gekirangers

Jan Kando/GekiRed | Actor: Hiroki Suzuki

  • Badass
  • Character Development: As the series goes on, he acts less dumb.
  • Crunchtastic: Makes up a lot of words, enough to make his own Jan-ish language. Examples of such words are "Ujauja", "Wakiwaki" or, most commonly "Zowazowa" (referring to monsters of the week). Justified that he's a jungle boy.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Long decimated his village, turned his father Dan evil, killed his mother. All because they were a PROBLEM in his plans
  • Hidden Depths: Has moments of great insight such as realizing that Mele is training herself or Gai being worried he'll disrupt the team dynamic.
  • Idiot Hero: Early in the series. Gradually he grows out of it. For the most part at least.
  • Image Song: Susume no Susume

Ran Uzaki/GekiYellow | Actress: Mina Fukui

  • The Captain: While it's not brought up much, she is the actual leader of the Gekirangers.

Retsu Fukami/GekiBlue | Actor: Manpei Takagi

Gou Fukami/GekiViolet | Actor: Riki Miura

Ken Hisatsu/GekiChopper | Actor: Sotaro Yasuda

Allies

SCRTC

Miki Masaki | Actress: Kazue Itoh

  • Former Teen Rebel: She was a sukeban in her youth, and her name still carries enough fear that an entire gang of thugs runs for it when they realize who she is. Thanks to learning Juken, she's actually tougher now than she was back then, she just doesn't show off.
  • Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!
  • Let's Get Dangerous: She shows off her Leopard-fist skills in the first episode, but then spends most of her time acting as backup. Thirty or so episodes later, Natsume is threatened and Miki displays enough power to impress Mele (who was using Genki at that point). Wow.
  • Mama Bear: She doesn't use it much, but Miki is a student of Geki Jyu Leopard-ken and she is more than ready to trot it out when bad guys mess with her kid.
  • Mission Control
  • Team Mom

The Kenma

  • The Dreaded: All three of them. The Kensei really didn't want them back and sealed their souls in bracelets. For Maku, they went the extra mile and removed his heart, which Rio and Mele also had to put back to revive him. Even the other Kenma are terrified of him.
  • Evil Is Petty: Maku. He takes nearly anything as an insult to pride, which can be something as simple as an opponent he considers unworthy picking a fight with him.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: Surprisingly subverted with Kata and Rageku. Rio revives them with the intent of becoming their apprentice, and they do so without any tricks, baring the Training from Hell they put him through, which is what he wanted in the first place. Played straight with Maku, who Rio revives despite being warned that he'll overthrow him. Maku not only does that, but refuses to train Rio.
  • Evil Mentor: Kata and Rageku are this to Rio.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Maku. We didn't get another bad guy this hot-tempered until Shinkenger.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Rio's initial plans weren't too threatening at first since they were aimed at reviving the Kenma. Once they show up, the threat of the week starts involving the usual city wrecking Super Sentai is known for.
  • Master of Illusion: Kata, and oddly, he gets hurt a lot more easily if somebody hits him during them (compare with one punch from Jan pissing him off, to when before the Geki bazooka had no effect on him)
  • Pride: Maku (see Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy). He was thrilled to be chosen as Brusa E's successor...until he learned that he asked Shafu first, and Shafu declined. Being the second choice ate away at Maku until he went mad.
  • The Social Darwinist: All three believe that their overwhelming power means they can do whatever they want, but Kata is slightly more eloquent about it. He rants that the weak should obey the strong and the "foolish" listen to the "wise" while fighting the team.
  • Weapon of Choice

Enemies

Gen Juken

Long/Infernal Dragon | Actor: Naoki Kawano

  • A God Am I: As he's an ancient being, he's close to a God and thinks that he has the rights to treat every living beings as nothing but his stress toys.
  • And I Must Scream: His fate at the end of the series.
  • Badass
  • Big Bad
  • Blond Guys Are Evil: Extremely evil.
  • Breath Weapon.
  • Complete Immortality: Something the Gekirangers find the hard way, even getting blown to pieces doesn't stop him down.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: His fights are either him dishing these out or ending up on the receiving end of them.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: To Rio, literally.
  • Eviler Than Thou: To Rio.
  • Evil Mentor: Was this Maku in the past. Tries to play it with Rio, but has difficulty with getting him to listen. He states that he was still easier to manipulate than Maku, hence why he keeps using him even after Maku is revived
  • Expy: His true form looks a lot like King Ghidorah.
  • Feel No Pain: Getting hit with a Finishing Move doesn't get a strong reaction from him.
  • For the Evulz: Holy shit yeah! His entire motive is that he thinks the world is boring.
  • Jerkass: His true colors. He smugly mocks everyone and everything in the series. He openly admits that the Rin Juken are nothing of his amusement, mocks the Kensei for believing in fighting to defend others as "rubbish", and chides Juken as nothing more than imitating animals which views himself as the strongest.Even
  • The Lawof Diminishing Defensive Effort: Played with. He does defend and avoid attacks, even though he never seems to react to pain, and by the finale, nothing seems to hurt him. He only seems to do it show his opponents how outclassed they are.
  • Light Is Not Good: Gold colored outfit, hair, fighting form, true form, and he is easily one of the most evil characters in Super Sentai franchise. Rin Juken is in fact based of his own technique.
  • Ironic Hell: His motives were escaping boredom, and he ends up sealed into a sphere for all eternity. Lampshaded by Xia Fu.
  • Man Behind the Man: To Rio and Maku
  • Man in White: Man gold, but fits the trope anyways.
  • Manipulative Bastard
  • No Sell: After reabsorbing Sanyo, everything aside from Rio's suicide attack, which he still came back from. Even when the core three Gekirangers get the upper hand in the finale and deliver a fairly one-sided beating to him, he gets back up like nothing happened.
  • One-Winged Angel: His true form is mutliheaded gold dragon that in rarity for the series isn't a humanoid monster, it walks on four legs.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Is gigantic, immortal, can shapeshift, and in his human form is also a skilled martial-artist.
  • Remember the New Guy: Maku sees him and unlike everybody else, he knows who he is, though of course doesn't say. Rageku recognizes his fighting form and she's terrified of him before he kills her.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: At the end.
  • Smug Snake
  • The Sociopath
  • Story-Breaker Power: As he can't be killed, it means he's almost unstoppable. Key word is almost. The Kenma created a technique to seal him, and part of why it worked is because he never expected it.
  • Psychotic Smirk: His default expression.
  • Time Abyss
  • Treacherous Advisor
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Can turn from a kaiju to a human.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: He's immortal, and everything he's done stems from his sheer boredom with the world.
  • You Have Out Lived Your Usefulness: Stated regarded the Kenma after Maku is killed, stating Rio has nothing left to learn from them. As Rageku is the only one left, he kills her himself.
