BFS: Muteki Shogun's Kaen-Shogunken in eps. 20, shrunk down to human size.
Tsuruhime/Ninja White | Actress: Satomi Hirose
Action Girl: Oh yes, very much so. Let's just say she more than makes up for The Smurfette Principle. However, there are times that she got caught (but most of the time, the others, aside of Ninja Red also get captured, so... kinda fair) and during the search for the scrolls, she needed to be escorted by the automated versions of her teammates instead of fighting. Faux Action Girl? The amount of focus episodes where she actually kicks ass on her own says "Nope".
Signature Move: Kakure Ryu Ku no Ji Kirinote Hidden Style Ku Character Slash
The Smart Girl: She's simply a much-more skilled Ninja than Sasuke. Subverted in that she's actually the team leader. Also, she's single-handedly killed Monsters Of The Week before they ever got the chance to grow.
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: ... on a typical day, that is. If he sees an imminent danger that threatens many people (ESPECIALLY KIDS), he'd shed his 'bumbling fool' role and be a competent ninja that makes his ancestor/namesake proud.
Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Subversion. Seikai himself isn't exactly a real big/fat guy, but he tends to act and fight like he's bigger than his usual size, yelling the sumo Battle Cry "Dosukoi!" (Even though he doesn't use sumo).
Hot-Blooded: As with Sasuke, he's something of an Edokko.
The Mentor: Takes up the role after Sandayu's death.
Shout-Out: Quotes Tora-san occasionally, after being called 'Aonisai' ("You said it, it's aaaaaall over now that you've said it!"). Maybe he's a fan?note Kazuki Yao is, and this was a Throw It In on his part.
Sixth Ranger: The producers at Toei were unsure if they could continue the Sixth Ranger tradition, despite the popularity of Dragon Ranger and Kiba Ranger, so they went for a more experimental approach with Ninjaman and made him into a human-sized robot who could enlarge himself and transform. Despite this, Ninjaman was still treated as if he was the sixth member of the team and his absent in the beginning of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger was the source of much confusion to fans of the character, which led to his guest role near the end of that series.
Spanner in the Works: A handful of plans in the later episodes fall apart simply because the Youkai forgot to take him into account.
Voluntary Shapeshifting: Can change size, from tiny to mecha-sized, and can also change shape. It's apparently rather easy for him, and he'll use it for really mundane things like startling a misbehaving kid.
His change into Samuraiman is also this, but he only does it once (against Daidara-houchi).
Home Base: For the Kakuranger. Unusually, Nekomaru is their means of transportation and money, but they sleep outdoors in tents as it simply isn't big enough inside.
Mechanical Lifeform: Moreso than the Sanshinshō. Seikai can be seen repairing it at one point, and it is as affected by catnip as a normal cat (though the dose has to be larger).
Sympathy for the Devil: Invokes this at the end of episode 10 when he reminds the audience that even though the Yokai Konakijiji stole souls from humans to bring his dolls to life, he only did so because of his desire to have a family of his own
Breaking the Fourth Wall: Constantly. As part of the post-modernistic nature of the show, he physically exists in the Kakuranger universe, to the point that the platform/stage he narrates from had to be moved out of direct action once.
Dropped a Bridge on Him: Seemingly crushed by rubble when Junior began the ceremony to revive Daimaoh, but appeared alive and well at the episode's end.
Put on a Bus: Disappeared after the Kakurangers set out on their quests to find the Shinobi Scrolls, at which point the monsters of the week took over explaining their origins in Japanese folklore.
Made of Iron: Survives being crushed by rubble when Junior began to the ceremony to revive Daimaoh as well as being thrown off a bridge in the Documentary Episode.
No Name Given: Doesn't seem to have a name, and is 'Narrator' in the credits. Frequently refers to himself as 'Ojisan'. (It might be Everyone Calls Him Narrator, but no one ever actually addresses him.)
The Narrator: Presents the show like a Kyougen narrator (which the actor actually is).
The Sanshinshōnote The Three Divine Generals
Big Good: We're originally three human sages that ascended to divine status after defeating Daimaoh.
The Power of Love: They explicitly say that, if Daimaō is powered by hatred and suffering, they run on this and courage and hope instead.
Muteki Shogun | Voice: Tomoyuki Horita
Curb-Stomp Battle: Deals out a lot of these; he doesn't really fight so much as just show up and do the finisher. Most likely due to the suit's bulkiness.
Demoted to Extra: Was the Kakuranger's primary mecha until the premiere of Kakure Daishogun which reduced Muteki Shogun to providing backup support.
Mighty Glacier: He represents the body aspect of ninpo, which makes him big and powerful but not very fast or agile.
Tsubasaramaru | Voice: Dai Matsumoto
Giant Flyer: Is a huge falcon with a wingspan of at least 85 meters wide
Mecha Expansion Pack: Basically its only task is to combine with the other two Generals. Combining with Muteki Shogun gave the robot cannons sticking from its torso. Combining with Kakure Daishogun gave the Daishogun a set of wings.
More Dakka: Its main form of offense is shooting bullets from its wingtips.
Kakure Daishogun | Voice: Dai Matsumoto
Bare-Fisted Monk: Since his design doesn't allow him to hold any weapons, Kakure Daishogun slays Yokai by beating them into submission.
Lightning Bruiser: Represents the technique aspect of ninpo which allows him to combine great speed and agility with overwhelming power.
My Death Is Just the Beginning: Killing him will spread hatred and suffering into everyone, like grenade shrapnel. The trick is to seal him away, behind those gates that Sasuke and Saizou accidentally opened in the first episode.
The Power of Hate: He is the physical realization of hatred and suffering. Can't actually be seen by normal humans due to this, if he so wishes.
Weaksauce Weakness: He mustn't be attacked directly, but due to being The Power of Hate incarnate, he can be physically pushed into the sealing gates by those with particularly strong will.
Young Nobleman Junior/Gasha Dokuro
Arm Cannon: Equips one during his final battle with the Kakurangers courtesy of Dr. Yagami.
Bad Boss: Largely averted. He's hardly a good boss and his subordinates are justifiably fearful of his wrath, but he's quick to reward competence and is generally devoted to the well-being of the Youkai.
Dangerously Genre Savvy: What makes him so dangerous is that his plans typically involve the Youkai of the Week striking the Kakurangers in ways and places that take advantage of the usual Super Sentai genre conventions. The Kakurangers are strongest as a team? Split them up and attack them individually. They have incredible skills individually? Trick them into showing them off in public, to a Youkai who specializes in copying skills. And so on. He's even properly suspicious of Hakumenro.
Disc One Final Boss: It takes getting a whole 'nother giant mecha to actually beat him, and even then...
Knight of Cerebus: Prior to his appearance, the yokai mostly operated independently of each other and unlike previous sentai enemies, operated on a Blue and Orange Morality rather than outright malevolence.
Humanity Ensues: Originally cats. They've apparently taken to their human forms, and can be seen swimming in a pool during their time off.
Psycho Rangers: They are a counter-Kakuranger ninja team in general, and aren't counterparts of the individuals. (It's worth noting that the Youkai generally aren't ninjas, so a specialized team of them makes more sense in practice.)
Elite Mook: Are eventually downgraded to this, as while they're consistently better than rank-and-file Dorodoros, the Kakurangers begin outpacing them after overcoming their trials.
