The courageous leader and ace of the team. Before joining the team, Daigo was a wandering vagrant who travelled the world helping out others and learning from them in turn. He acquired his nickname, "King", due to his presence of personality and overall greatness.
The Ace: He can fight, cook, dance, be an inspiration for his team, can be a surprisingly good artist at times and may possess various other skills. He continues to show that he EARNED the title of King. He is so good at everything that it becomes an...
Achilles' Heel: #17 demonstrates that he has no weakness, so naturally that makes him strong. Unfortunately, it also has the side effect of making him unable to grow any stronger than that because he's never known fear.
Awesomeness by Analysis: He is this towards his teammates. Just from a few meetings with them, and sometimes by talking to other people his teammates know, he's able to come up with ways to help them come together as a team.
Badass: When you can kill a giant monster with a single sword attack, you're officially one.
Batman Gambit: He does this in Episode 3, where he lets himself get captured along with Souji's father simply to give Souji a chance to prove that his swordsmanship style and his father's style are compatible.
He does this again in Episode 4, where, after hearing about Ian's past, he reminds Ian that he'll never feel satisfied unless he manages to make the shot that he missed in the past, which cost Shiro his life. Later, when the Monster of the Week, who just happens to be the same monster that killed Shiro, is holding him hostage, he encourages Ian to take the shot and not to worry about him. Ian succeeds, and after the battle is over, he says he's not going to lose any of his new friends.
Once more in Episode 13. The monster's power is to strengthen the emotional turmoil of unrequited love, doing so by cutting the invisible connection between the victim and their object of affection with a pair of giant scissors. Daigo has Nobuharu and himself dress up as high school students; Daigo plays the girl and pretends to reject Nobuharu (who draws on his own memories of being rejected to make it look convincing) so that they can lure out the monster and break his scissors.
Battle Strip: Pulls off a spectacular one in episode 27, tearing off his shirt before going into battle, with several instances of Female Gaze as he does so. He spends the rest of his unmorphed screentime in the episode shirtless.
Berserk Button: Subverted in both cases, where breaking his treasured memento and calling him having a father complex were two of them. However, instead of giving into anger, he questioned Ian why he did so. Turns out that this "Ian" was an impostor created by the MOTW.
Composite Character: Seems to be a mixture of Eiji Hino (with the traveling around the world) and Gentaro Kisaragi (Magnetic Hero and Nice Guy personality). The Gentaro one is justified, seeing as Riku Sanjo previously worked on Fourze.
Dance Battler: Can do a samba and fight at the same time. He is also sometimes shown implementing some breakdancing skills when fighting.
This becomes considerably more pronounced when he fights as Kyoryu Red Carnival.
Determinator: Fought Gabutyra for a month without giving up.
#23 full stop. All of the others are unconscious and Daigo's alone piloting Kyoryuzin. He gets back up and keeps fighting, not willing to give in. We agree, that's pretty danged brave.
Disappeared Dad: He used to travel the world with his father, then dear old dad vanished after giving Daigo the dinosaur tooth in amber he now wears as a necklace.
Finishing Move: Zyuden Carnival Finishnote A projection of Minityra's head is shot out to chomp the foe. In standard Carnival form, the shot is bolstered by the firing power of the Gaburevolver. In any Snapping Change, two Brave energy orbs representing the additional Zyudenryu encircle around Minityra's head to strengthen the shot.
Fearless Fool: Tessai thinks he's one, causing Daigo to stop and consider what he is afraid of. It's letting down and losing his friends.
Female Gaze: Goes shirtless in #27, for no other reason then to give the ladies some eye candy.
The Hero: Torin is constantly surprised by his Bravery, including several moments in #23 such as piloting Kyoryuzin Kung-Fu by himself, immediately heading back to check on Yayoi and Plezuon after fighting to a standstill and with his foes still out there, and most notably, running toward Master Deboss untransformed while shooting him. And giving a truly impressive battle roar.
The Heart: Daigo was the one who got the other 4 Kyoryugers to open up to each other.
Discussed in #28, when Daigo's father asks him if he's willing to believe in Torin, no matter what. He instantly answers that he will. Later in the episode, after the revelation that Torin was once part of the Deboss army, he's the first one to reaffirm his faith in Torin, rallying the others back from their shock.
Heroic Self-Deprecation: What ultimately saves the team in #7 funny enough. As a fake Ian insults him and points out his faults, Daigo completely agrees with him and actually begs for advice on how to improve himself.
Made of Iron: Is usually shown to be the one to quickly shrug off pretty serious blows and continue fighting. A prime example would be in #12 when he took a lightning attack untransformed and was able to keep up fighting alongside Utsusemimaru minutes later.
Exemplified in #26. Even with his mind regressed to that of a T-Rex, Daigo still protects Ian from Aigaron first and foremost.
Power of Trust: Comes with his Nice Guy tendencies, but it's clear to anyone that he has complete faith in his teammates. If they're in trouble? He knows they're strong enough to handle it. One of them intentionally hurts him? They probably had a very good reason. They have a potentially suicidal plan? It's okay, they know what they're doing.
Punch Catch: Does so to Tessai's Signature Move, Gekiretsu Toppanote Furious Breakthrough, to show how much stronger he's become in #18.
Only Sane Man: Every now and then. Like in episode 29, when the others were all vowing to avenge Torin, he told them to stop, because while they would definitely avenge him, avenging him while they were angry would only make Deboss even stronger.
Super Mode: Kyoryu Red Carnival. Like Kyoryuzin, Daigo can equip the Zyudenryu of the others to grant himself their abilities.
Or maybe not. He seems to not draw people very well, as seen with his drawing of the team, but his design for a sign was complimented by Amy, he does show that he has sculpting skills with the t-rex statue, and claims to have been called Art King in the past
True Companions: What he considers everyone on his team to be, and the source of his weakness. He fears losing any of his friends, and overcomes this to pass Tessai's test.
A cocky and stylish charmer from Europe. Ian is a playboy with a sharp and analytical mind, though he also possesses an antisocial streak and takes the longest to fully acquaint himself with the team. His speciality is shooting.
Badass Bookworm: He and his friend Shiro were essentially archaeologists, and knew quite a lot when it came to rare stones and old civilizations. This doesn't stop him from being a crack-shot and being strong enough for Parasagun to name him as a worthy partner.
The Charmer: So far, Yayoi is the only person not to fall for his charm; she is so smitten with Daigo that she just doesn't notice Ian.
Chivalrous Pervert: #33 expands on this by having Ian's old girlfriend Erika explain that even if he flirts with any cute girl he sees, Ian does everything he can to ensure their happiness — like buying an astronomical number of flowers.
Cold Sniper: Tries to act like this at first, but after Daigo helps him get some closure from Shiro's death, he loosens up.
Dark and Troubled Past: He may be a ladies' man and joker, but still has the burden of his best friend, Shiro, dying during the initial attack of the Devoss.
Delinquent: His and Utsusemimaru's disguise in #13.
Eureka Moment: In #27, he figures out the true purpose of the +1 Battery after making a comment on how Gabutyra was too big to look for Daigo.
Expy: He's a Black Ranger who's a bit of a loner, and is generally charming with the ladies. Gai, is that you?
Hidden Depths: Though Ian may be a ladies man, he does so due to how he lost his friend Shiro to Aigaron in the Deboss's first invasion and he knows how sad women can be and does his best to cheer up the ladies to the best of his ability and help them forget about their problems.
Unstoppable Rage: Let's just say it's not pretty when he finds out Aigaron was the one who killed Shiro.
Worf Had The Flu: When the MOTW gave him a severe toothache, Black's performance in battle sagged. Even more, he couldn't even follow through with the roll-call!
Nobuharu Udo/Kyoryu Blue
The Armored Hero | Live actor: Yamato Kinjo
An affable and reliable handyman with an affinity for cracking awful "dad jokes". Nobuharu works hard as a Kyoryuger to protect his beloved family from the influence of evil, and tends to be on the receiving end of comic relief. His nickname is "Nossan" (taken from his name and "ossan," a Japanese expression for "old man"; a loose English equivalent to "ossan" would be "Pops").
Combat Pragmatist: Despite his cheerful demeanor, from what footage is available now he seems to have a surprisingly cold-hearted fighting style. His most prominent appearance in the intro shows him knocking down a Mook and then shooting it through the heart with his gun as it struggles to get up. In the second episode, he uses his Stego Shield for a Groin Attack.
Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Seems like the biggest goofball of the team... on the surface, that is. Don't forget he still had to beat Stegotchi in physical combat to become a Kyoryuger in the first place. Episode 8 proves that he should not be underestimated.
Determinator: Exemplified in #15. It doesn't matter how much gravity is holding him down or if he's being electrocuted without the suit, if he's saving his friend, he's gonna freaking save his friend.
#31 shows that he'll do everything in his path to save his family even if he's gotta be the one to fight an over-powered Dogold all by himself.
Disappeared Dad: After his brother-in-law's death, he stepped in to help care for his niece.
Embarrassing Nickname: "Nossan." It's a combination of "Nobuharu" and "ossan," which is a Japanese expression that is loosely translated as "Pops." Rather apt, considering that, at 32, he is the oldest of the main Kyoryuger team. Nobuharu discovers, to his great chagrin, that he is older than Utsusemimaru, who, despite having been born during the 16th century, is "just" 29 years old.
Parents as People: Downplayed, as he is helping to raise his niece in place of her late father.
Perma Stubble: Basically to underscore that he now works as a jack-of-all-trades repairman and has little time to groom himself, in stark contrast to his days as a salaryman, seen briefly in flashback.
Pungeon Master: Well, "Master" is overstating it. He tries, really he does. His late brother-in-law, Kenichi, was a fan of them, and Nobuharu actually uses them to save Yuko from an illusion of Kenichi in Episode 8.
Running Gag: He's the one who always gets affected by Pukuptor for some odd reason: first was him trying it on himself, second was when Ian and Souji used him to get away from the enemy, and the third one is him being kicked around by his teammates and then striked as if he was a volleyball. He lampshades the last one as he states that he "shouldn't always be the one to use Pukuptor on!"
Wrestler in All of Us: Regularly busts out dropkicks, back-drops, suplexes and piledrivers on Zourima. What else does he have to do to qualify?
As of #27 you can add a Chokeslam and DDT to the list.
Souji Rippukan/Kyoryu Green
The Slashing Hero | Live actor: Akihisa Shiono
A cold and focused high-school swordsman. Souji is the heir to a legendary school of swordmanship, which he has combined with his own personal, savage style to great effect. Though quiet, he is the first to act when something offends him.
A multi-millionaire heiress with a tough streak. Amy was raised in high society, but feeling that her true personality was more untamed, secretly underwent training to turn herself into a fighting powerhouse. Despite her wealth, she holds down a job as a server at a cafe.
Green-Eyed Monster: Inexplicably seems to be this way in #22, upon the accidental reveal of Yayoi's crush on Daigo. After Yayoi joins the team, however, Amy's jealousy suddenly evaporates like it never existed.
Handy Feet: #10 reveals that she's pretty good at working a remote control with her feet, and she uses them to untie Souji when they've been captured by the Devoss. She later tells Souji to not tell anyone else about her "talent."
The Heart: It comes with her position as The Chick, but it really does say something about her character, because if it's not Daigo, it's usually her to try to understand a person's motivation and dilemmas, then help them with their troubles.
Hot Teacher: For Utsusemimaru on living in the modern world.
Ojou: Subverted. She is wealthy and is treated like royalty by her butler, but she doesn't really like acting like a Proper Lady. She prefers to be more casual and to be able to be open about her fighting prowess, which makes her a...
The Thunderous Hero | Live actor: Atsushi Maruyama
The partner of Pteragordon (#6), a samurai who fought during the Warring States Era in Japan 400 years ago. After seeing many of his comrades killed in battle and Torin about to be executed by the hands of Dogold and Chaos he went into a violent rage, where in which Dogold took advantage of him and Utsusemimaru was sealed inside of Dogold's body until he was freed by the present day Kyoryuger. He transforms using the GaburiChanger.
The Ace: A better swordsman than Souji and a better marksman than Ian. In fact, he surpasses everyone else in each of their own fighting style. Being a samurai, though, he would have to have been a skilled fighter.
Adorkable: It really is a sight to see this man with ice cream, how clumsy he is, anytime he bows to Amy, his reaction to the nickname she gave him, or just him with a huge smile on his face.
#33 has Ian prank Utsusemimaru by asking two of his lady friends to fangirl over him, which makes him uncomfortable. At the end of the episode, the girls show up again, this time legitimately attracted to Utchy because they find him Adorkable. And Ian's old girlfriend Erika joins in the fangirling because of how cool Utchy was when he protected her earlier.
Aloof Ally: Originally wanted to stay this way until Daigo proves himself to be a suitable lord. Not made any better when Amy convinces him to keep up the charade.
The Atoner: Another reason he is kind of cold towards the team; he is ashamed of his actions towards them as Dogold.
Badass: As the most experienced on the team, someone who even Torin admits was a legendary swordsman, partners with the strongest Zyudenryu (which he presumably defeated without powers like everyone else), and was a rival to an enemy that takes at least two members of the team to fight efficiently. Then in his debut he basically takes down a bunch of mooks, all the Deboss commanders (except Chaos) and two elite monsters of the week.
Catchphrase: Ten ikarite aku o kiru! note Vanquishing evil in the name of heaven!
Character Development: At first, he would charge in first in a fit of rage not thinking about the consequences of his actions in the long run. Then he believed kindness was a weakness in battle due to his Lord's last words to him. Now, he is much more calm and composed, all while thinking about the team and their needs first. Even willing to sacrifice his life if it is needed.
Does This Remind You of Anything?: A proud valiant warrior who, driven by emotion, becomes the host for a malevolent entity, and reigns terror for many years. When the warrior is freed, the malevolent entity finds different hosts and becomes the valiant warrior's main enemy. Are we talking about Ucchii and Dogold or Siegfried and Nightmare?
Raiden Zankou: Five Point Slash: Four of the team members shoot a single point, creating a portal of Brave energy. Ucchi flies through it and then slashes the foe five times, once for each of their energies and once for his own.
Fire-Forged Friends: It is only when Daigo absolutely refuses to quit fighting, fights alongside him, and makes him realize that the team are all really good friends instead of lord and servants that Ucchi officially joins the team.
Fish Out of Temporal Water: Really does have great difficulty adjusting to the modern world and part of the reason he refused to join the team.
Ineffectual Loner: Starts off this way as he wants Daigo to prove himself as a leader due to his resemblance to his own lord in the past, but after a good heart-to-heart with Amy and a day with Daigo he was able to accept the team. Before that, he was all...
Except when trying to appear tough to the others (see below): "Ware"
Jerkass Façade: Acts cold towards everyone at first, but it was just his way of looking cool and hiding all of his insecurities. Amy helps him get over it.
Jerkass Has a Point: Despite how rude he was when he insulted them after he showed how he is superior in every member's personal fighting style, they had to admit they have to get stronger to keep up.
Law of Chromatic Superiority: Like the other Legendary Kyoryugers, he fell in battle. However he'll be revived to fight again in the modern day. Guess being gold is better than cyan. Justified, as he was sealed rather than actually dying.
The Mentor: Has shades of this. He clearly excels at many skills that the rest claim to be their specialty so he tries to help them. For example: he helps Souji with sword fighting, tried to help Ian hook up Souji with a girl, tried to help Amy learn traditional Japanese customs etc.
No Social Skills: He does show off that he is a bit shy (especially around girls) and has some Adorkable traits. Some of these stopped him from joining the team initially, but he is working to overcome them.
Squishy Wizard: Inverted. He is The Ace that excel in even each of the main team's fighting specialty. He seems not to be able to use other Zyudenchi besides his own signature Zyudenchi, though he does not need any of their gimmicks.
Survivors Guilt: All of his comrades were slaughtered and his own Lord performed a Heroic Sacrifice to save his life. This is part of the reason he can't stand to face the team, especially Daigo due to his resemblance to his Lord.
Sweet Tooth: His wish in #20 was to eat a mountain full of ice cream.
Undying Loyalty: Naturally, as a samurai, he has this towards his Lord. Even hundreds of years after his death. It appears to be towards Torin and Amy as well. Torin is a dear friend of his and Amy is the first one to talk to him about his troubles and is the one to teach him about the modern world.
Unstoppable Rage: Goes into this state twice in #9. First is in a flashback when he discovers his fellow samurai slaughtered and Torin about to be executed. Then, in present day when he sees Dogold gloat about trapping him inside his body and manipulating him, thus turning him from a hero of justice into one of the monsters he was protecting the people from.
Moment of Weakness: It was his own rage that caused him to be vulnerable enough for Dogold to take over his body.
The fact the toy version of the GaburiChanger doesn't have a reader doesn't help.
Subverted in the end though as he is very able to use the other Zyudenchi in his Zander Thunder, meaning that he can mix and match any combination of three Batteries for attacks, unlike the others who can only load two at a time in their Gaburivolver.
Apart from the main team, there have been other Kyoryugers that existed throughout history. They are partnered with Zyudenryu #7-10, and though they never formed a team themselves, they now support the current Kyoryugers in their battles- two of them assist as spirits after having died fighting Deboss, while one of them, Dr. Ulshade, retired as a Kyoryuger after undertaking one last mission in space before handing down the powers to his granddaughter Yayoi. And Torin had partnered with Bragigas back when the Zyudenryu were transformed, though he did not become a Kyoryuger until the modern age.
Backup from Otherworld: Ramirez and Tessai. Utsusemimaru was built up as this, but was revealed to still be alive. Same goes for Dr. Ulshade.
But Not Too Foreign: Averted; where the main team is made up of Japanese people who have traveled to (or in Amy's case, from) foreign countries, the Legendary Kyoryugers are actual foreigners. Ramirez even holds the honor of being the franchise's first hero played by an actor who isn't Japanese.
Dr. Ulshade, Yayoi, and Torin: "Kyoryu Change! Fire!"
Color-Coded Characters: Spirit rangers have gold sashes across their chest, whereas living kyoryugers (besides Utsusemimaru) have yellow sashes. Torin, as the partner to the strongest Voltsaur has golden cuffs to his gloves, and boots, a golden shoulder pad and knuckles and a golden belt, whereas every other Kyoryuger has silver for each.
Hero of Another Story: They were fighting before the current Kyoryugers, and are still doing their own stuff. Ramirez, for example, scattered his spirit into search particles to find the other Zyudenryu. And after granting Bunpachy to the team, Tessai joins him.
#29 shows us that they've been seeking the remains of the 13 Guardian Zyudenryu, each encased in amber. These will be the key to finding and awakening Bragigas.
Meanwhile, Yayoi is being trained by her grandfather and has helped by recalibrating some new Zyudenchi for the main team. She also developed the Giga Gaburevolver and the Gigant Formation, as well as the Victory and Maximum Zyudenshi.
And Torin is responsible for the birth and formation of the team, as well as saving the Earth 65 million years ago, along with the Zyudenryu.
The partner of Ankydon (#7), who fought during the Dark Ages against Debo Virsun. Ramirez is a Caucasian Kyoryuger who speaks in accented broken Japanese, and has a tendency to lighten the mood by cracking jokes.
Nice Guy: Even though his very existence is in danger, he's more worried about Ankydon and trying to lighten the burden on the modern-day Kyoryugers. On top of that, despite having lived centuries ago and still being unused to the modern day, he befriends Amy and has a deep respect for her as a warrior.
Though it ultimately was a bad thing for Ucchi, Ramirez made a stop in Belgium in #20 and while there, got ice cream for the team.
Sad Clown: Ramirez cracks most of his jokes when the situation is most dire and he's unable to do much. A good example of this is near the beginning of #6 where Torin tells him flat out that if he can't get Ankydon back soon, that he'll cease existing as a Spirit and fade away.
The partner of Bunpachy (#8), a powerful martial artist from China that lived 1500 years ago. He is from a clan that mastered the Tessai-Ken or "Iron-Breaking Fist", and returns to teach the current team the technique, as well as to train them to be stronger.
Good Is Not Nice: Didn't really care if the team died during his training, as long as they got stronger. Later, since Daigo didn't pass the test of overcoming weaknesses (because he has none), which then makes him unable to become stronger, he demands that he should be kicked off the team and that Utsusemimaru should be the leader.
Actor Allusion: His gray suit looks more like a darker silver. Also, the clear domed portion on his head reflects light the same way Deai's old Bouken Silver suit did.
Hidden Depths: On the surface he is exactly what he claims to be; "a remarkably hard-headed person", but underneath that he truly cares about the team and simply wanted to help them. It's just that he was the first human to become a Kyoryuger and he knows exactly how terrifying the power of the Deboss are, so he just needs to push them a bit harder than someone usually would.
Not so Above It All: When we usually see him, he is a serious, level-headed but strict monk that hides his kinder side. In #38, we witness him ham it up for all its worth when his own descendant push his Berserk Button.
The partner of Plezuon (#9), a scientist living in the modern age that created the weapons for the team. He went away to study the meteor that Deboss originated from and is currently planning to retire as a Kyoryuger. Working with him is his granddaughter, Yayoi.
Badass: It's pretty much a pre-requisite at this point.
Badass Bookworm: Not only is he an inventor and a scientist, he's also a Kyoryuger.
Granddaughter of Doctor Ulshade/Kyoryu Violet and helped with the creation of the Gaburevolvers and Zyuden Arms. She later inherited the title of Kyoryu Violet after her grandfather's retirement.
Adorkable: One of her best moments is near the start of the episode where she becomes Kyoryu Violet, where she imitates the Gaburivolver song and does the henshin dance... and when she sees that the Kyoryugers have unexpectedly witnessed the scene, she runs away from them, blushing like mad.
Green-Eyed Monster: Is distressed when Daigo receives a postcard from Mikoto, telling him that she is returning to Japan to give him something important. Yayoi refers to Mikoto as "the enemy" when talking to Amy; little does Yayoi realize how true her words turn out to be.
It Runs in the Family: If jumping into Plezuon's open mouth and screaming "Brave in!" to power him up doesn't qualify as Badass, then what will?
Keeping the Enemy Close: With Amy, takes Mikoto out for a girls' afternoon. This is so Yayoi can minimize Mikoto's time with Daigo, as well as figure out what sort of "threat" Mikoto poses to Yayoi's chances with Daigo.
Take Up My Sword: Upon retiring, Yayoi receives her grandfather's Bravery and adds it to her own, becoming Kyoryu Violet in his place.
The Engineer: With Daigo getting the KyoryuRed Carnival upgrade, Yayoi expands the number of available Zyudenchi for the team. #1-#5 will have six each like Ucchy, and #7-#9 will increase to three each. This allows each team member to have one to transform, one to call their Zyudenryu, one for their Zyuden Arm, one for a finisher, one for Red to use for Carnival, and an extra one just in case. The Spirit Rangers and the Plezuon batteries used by the main team will have one to transform, one for their Zyudenryu and one for Carnival. Yayoi, who had four to start with should also go up to six.
#31 has her developing the Victory and Maximum Zyudenchi, as well as creating four Zyudenchi for #10 Bragigas. Though they will not be charged by the Spirits until Bragigas is awakened.
Unknown Rival: Seemingly completely oblivious to Amy's initial dislike of her after the accidental reveal of her crush on Daigo. Oddly enough, Amy is completely fine with her right after Yayoi becomes a Kyoryuger.
In #24, it's suggested that Yayoi knows, thanks to her comment of how Amy is "always with Daigo". Seemingly subverted by the end of the episode when Yayoi tells Amy that she won't lose to her.
Unrequited Love: Is smitten with Daigo, so much that she has numerous images of him and a holographic replica of him in different poses to boot!
The divine mentor of the team, who gave them their powers and can sense when the Deboss Army is on the move. Also revealed to be not only the Deboss' Priest of the Demon Blade turned good, but also the partner of Bragigas (#10) all along. He had been looking for the fossilized ambers to revive it. He later transforms into Kyoryu Silver in #36.
Back from the Dead : When the core 5 Kyoryugers bring Torin to the Spirit Base, they gather stones similar to the ones Ian has been looking for and from Daigo's pendant onto Torin's stone body, and they sing a song they learned from the events of the Gaburincho of Music movie. This brings back Torin, much to the relief of the core 5 Kyoryugers.
Badass: Is shown to be just as powerful, if not even more powerful than any member of the team before becoming Kyoryu Silver. See Handicapped Badass for the main reason he doesn't fight on a regular basis.
Badass Boast: In episode 39, D lets the main six Kyoryugers and Yayoi know that he has sent a force of 1,000 enemies to take care of Torin and the Spirit Rangers before proceeding to perform an Evil Laugh. That laugh gets cut off by Torin letting out a laugh of his own as the camera shows him and the Spirit Rangers, all 1,000 enemies already defeated as he then says the following line.
Torin: Sending a force of one thousand to face us... I'm afraid you should have sent more.
Badass Grandpa: Torin is at least 100 million years old and has been protecting the earth for the vast majority of that time.
Handicapped Badass: Seems that the only reason that he doesn't fight on a regular basis is that he suffers from a terrible pain when fighting for too long. This is due to being gravely injured in past battles with the Deboss, and the only thing keeping him alive are the spirits of the Zyudenryu. It's later revealed part of this was due to breaking off from Deboss. It's finally reversed when he allows himself to become the Anthropomorphic Personification of Bravery, allowing him to regain his true strength and become even stronger by transforming into Kyoryu Silver.
Chaos Is My Older Brother: In #28, it is revealed that Torin was a former Deboss Legion member and that Chaos is his older brother. The 6 Kyoryugers do not take this well initially, but Daigo quickly recalls his father's words to him and reaffirms his support for Torin, and his teammates follow suit.
Failure Knight: Originally saw himself as one due to his insecurities over the fact that he could not generate bravery to become Kyoryu Silver, which resulted in the death of Bragigas, and the many other casualties that resulted from the ongoing conflict with the Deboss Legion. He is also labeled as such from the Deboss for betraying them to defend the Earth instead. It's finally letting go of this mentality and allowing himself to become the Anthropomorphic Personification of Bravery that finally allows him to become Kyoryu Silver.
Finishing Move: Trinity Strazernote Releasing his wings, Torin forms a triangle of sword slashes which flies towards the foe and traps them. He then flies towards his target and slashes, releasing the total energy into it.
Punny Name: With the Japanese pronunciation, it's Torinity Strazor.
Flash Step: He does a vertical flash step when he fights Chaos, rapidly ascending into the air and descending to dodge the villain's fireballs.
Taken UpToEleven when he transforms, as he uses the light reflecting off his suit to turn into a beam of light and speed towards Mad Torin, making it a literal Flash Step!
Happily Failed Suicide: Attempted to kill himself when he was under the control of the Deboss and forced him to attack the team, but after reviving him, he found that everyone truly cared for him as a dear friend of theirs. This assured Torin that Earth and its inhabitants have never lost the beauty that convinced him to become the planet's guardian.
After meeting the dinosaurs and humans, bravery began to exist within me. That's why, as Deboss grew stronger, my own body became weaker. But I've seen how strong they are, with my own eyes, over the course of a hundred million years...Let that bravery be my new source of life! Let my body become bravery incarnate!
Hoist by His Own Petard: In both of his appearances, Meeko has a major part of his grand scheme to defeat the team. She has also been the main benefactor of his defeat both times.
Applies to Tobaspino as well. First, the battery is used by Daigo to change into his Samba Carnival Special mode. He is then defeated by the Kyoryugers using SpinoDaiOh to permanently finish him off right after.
Super Prototype: Aruguably for both Kyoryuger and Deboss. His powers come from Tobaspino, the first Zyudenryu created with battery #00. He was also the first Deboss Legion Knight, but has no connection to any particular emotion.
Taking You with Me: With his constant defeat at the hands of the Kyoryugers and Meeko, he finally decided that he'd rather self-destruct and take the whole world with him. He was defeated before he could start.
Applies to his battle with Tobaspino as well, which is how he claimed its powers the first time he came back to life.
Victor Gains Loser's Powers: Instead of being chosen, he forces Tobaspino to be his partner and later forces Ankydon and Bunpachy to combine with him to form SpinoDaiOh.
Live Actor: Shinji Yamashita
Daigo's father who mysteriously vanished, left him with some money, and a pendant which resembles a mysterious stone that Aigaron stole from Ian's best friend.
Disappeared Dad: Although he recently appeared in #20, dressed as he was prior to his disappearance.
Determinator: Was unwilling to stop pulling on a chain to retrieve the final Guardian Stone, despite the fact that it was in the bottom of a lake and his hand was already cut pretty badly. We must also mention that right under the lake was Hell, which also should've made it near impossible to pull it out.
Megaton Punch: He is the master of this. His punches are even stronger than Daigo's or Tessai's, and he doesn't have any powers… that we know of anyway.
Memento Macguffin: The amber pendant that he gave Daigo before he disappeared. Seems to be linked to both the Spirit Base and the similar stone that Ian and Shiro found.
All In The Manual states that it's a Guardian Stone, specifically the remains of Allomerus.
Mysterious Parent: He appears to know Torin. Further, we have no idea what he's been doing this whole time, save for it having something to do with the "path of the great lizards." Which sounds an awful bit like the path of a Kyoryuger...
While we still lack some info, part of his journey seems to have been a hunt for Guardian Stones.
Walking the Earth: What he was doing before and after having Daigo with him. In light of recent events, it's unknown whether he's done and came back to Japan, was simply an illusion, a ghost, or anything else.
Seeing as he physically handed Torin something, it's likely that was the real deal.
Live Actor: Kenji Ebisawa
Ian's best friend and fellow treasure hunter. He is killed by Aigaron in front of Ian, who is understandably haunted by the incident for a long time afterwards.
MacGuffin: He and Ian found a mysterious stone during one of their expeditions, but Aigaron ambushed them, killed Shiro, and stole the stone. When the Kyoryugers take the stone back, everyone notices that it glows in unison with Daigo's pendant. Why this is so has yet to be revealed.
#29 seems to reveal that all the stones are key to finding the last Zyudenryu, Bragigas.
Nobuharu's sister. A widow and single mother, she dislikes both the Deboss and the Kyoryugers, believing them to be equally dangerous. Her greatest contempt is for Kyoryu Blue, who she does not know is her own brother.
Actor Allusion: In #40, when Yuko fends off some Zorima, she ends up performing the Dekaranger henshin pose (complete with the familiar sirens in the background).
Badass: She can lift a humongous barrel with just one arm and slam it in Kyoryu Red's face.
Glamorous Single Mother: Averted. She needs Nobuharu's help with finances and raising Rika, is still greatly affected by the death of her husband, Kenichi, and is constantly worrying about Rika's well-being.
In Love With Your Alter Ego: Inverted. Yuko hates Kyoryu Blue, but she appreciates Nobuharu being there for her and Rika, not knowing that her brother is the sentai hero that she despises most. Until #31, that is.
Mama Bear: Not much on the action part, but she is very protective of Rika. When Nobuharu, as Kyoryu Blue, was tending to an injured Rika, Yuko pushes him away.
Secret Secret Keeper: It's all but outright stated that the events of #31 made her realize that her brother is Kyoryu Blue.
And in #40, Souji and Utcchy learn that Yuko knows, but she asks them not to tell Nobuharu because he already worries about his family enough as is.
Shattering the Illusion: Unlike Rika, Yuko was fooled by Kokodoko's illusion of Kenichi returning, but Nobuharu told some old man jokes to show her that the Kenichi that she was seeing was an impostor (Kenichi had loved Nobuharu's old man jokes, while the impostor reacted angrily to them).
Super Strength: She chucks a barrel at Daigo's face in #31. Seems like super strength is hereditary.
In #40 she swings Ramirez around to knock Zorima off their feet.
Took a Level in Badass: She was able to use Ramirez as a weapon to fight off the Zorima in #40! Even Ramirez was surprised!
Nobuharu's six-year-old niece who has become a Secret Keeper regarding her uncle's identity as Kyoryu Blue. Despite her age, she's quite mature.
Badass Adorable: Not in the fighting sense, but hey, there aren't a lot of six year old kids willing to stand up to monsters that could flatten them or help destroy barriers by throwing a safety cone nearly as big as she is at them.
She might have been scared, but she was ready to cheer on the Kyoryugers and her uncle in #35.
Wise Beyond Their Years: She has long since accepted and made peace with the fact that Kenichi had passed away, as shown in #8. In contrast, Yuko was easily ensnared by the MOTW's illusion of Kenichi returning to her.
You Shall Not Pass: In episode 2, when the Monster of the Week was about to flatten the statue she and some other kids made. Keep in mind that the monster was shown flattening skyscrapers with just a wave of his own hand.
Live Actor: Junichi Haruta
Souji's father and head of the family sword fighting style. Originally did not approve of Souji's more savage style, but accepted it as Souji proved his own strength in combat.
Badass: The man can fight monsters on his own and imitate Utsusemimaru's Raiden Zankou with a non-conductive sword. A wooden sword.
Magical Flutist: Is able to use Deathryuger's Flute Buster when she is corrupted by him.
Phlebotinum Girl: Due to her connection to ancient humans, her voice was needed in order to summon Tobaspino.
Ship Tease: Is yet another potential love interest for Daigo.
Unknown Rival: Has no idea that Yayoi sees her as a rival for Daigo's affection, especially when Yayoi and Amy take her out shopping.
Yayoi wanting to take Mikoto shopping with her and Amy is in order to A) keep Mikoto away from Daigo as much as possible, and B) try to gauge just how much of a threat Mikoto poses to her efforts to win Daigo over.
Each of the Kyoryugers have a companion beast. These were dinosaurs modified to battle the Deboss Army in the past.
Ten Great Zyudenryu
Daigo/KyoryuRed's partner, a red Zyudenryu based on Tyrannosaurus rex. Forms the bulk of Kyoryuzin, and normally resides in a volcano on a tropical island until called upon.
Berserk Button: Is greatly angered by the mere sight of the Deboss for causing the extinction of the dinosaurs.
Ian/KyoryuBlack's partner, a black Zyudenryu based on a Parasaurolophus. Forms the right arm of Kyoryuzin and PteraidenOh Western, serving as an Arm Cannon, and normally resides near a European castle until called upon.
Arm Cannon: Parasa Beam Gun, formed when combined into a Zyuden Giant.
Nobuharu/KyoryuBlue's partner, a blue Zyudenryu based on a Stegosaurus. Forms the right arm of Kyoryuzin, forming a shield and the Zyudenkennote Electro-Beast Sword when all five Kyoryugers pilot Kyoryuzin. It resides beneath the ice of the North Pole until called upon.
BFS: Zyudenken, only accessible when all five Kyoryugers pilot Kyoryuzin.
Souji/KyoryuGreen's partner, a green Zyudenryu based on a Velociraptor. Forms the left arm of Kyoryuzin and PteraidenOh Western, serving as a claw, and normally resides in a Japanese bamboo thicket until called upon.
Utsusemimaru/KyoryuGold's partner, a gold Zyudenryu based on a Pteranodon. It can transform into Pteraiden-Oh or combine with Kyoryuzin to form the Raiden Kyoryuzin. Resides in a volcano near by Gabutyra's resting spot, and can often be found flying around inside a thunderstorm.
Tessai/KyoryuGray's partner, a dark gray Zyudenryu that takes after a Pachycephalosaur, and has the capacity to combine with Gabutyra and Ankydon to form Kyoryuzin Kung-Fu, serving as a flail. It can also join with Plezuon to form Bupachy Plezu-Oh and then with Gabutyra to make Bakuretsu Kyoryuzin. Meditates behind Millennial Falls in China until called upon.
Epic Flail: Bunpachy Ball, formed when combined into a Zyuden Giant.
Use Your Head: Bunpachy rams it's head into foes, in addition to pounding them with it's tail.
Visual Pun: Pachycephalosaurs have hard heads. Bunpachy's wearing a hard hat.
Warrior Monk: Like it's partner, Bunpachy meditates near Millennial Falls until he's needed to smash some Deboss.
A violet and white Zyudenryu based on a Plesiosaur. Has three modes: normal Zyudenryu, rocket ship, and the Zyuden Giant Plezu-Oh, which transforms via "Rocket Transformation". It can swap out it's left arm for Bunpachy to form Bupachy Plezu-Oh, and adding Gabutyra to the combination makes Bakuretsu Kyoryuzin.
Was originally the partner of Dr.Ulshade/KyoryuViolet I, but is now bonded with his granddaughter and successor Yayoi/KyoryuViolet II. And like everyone else on the team, is great friends with Daigo.
From Nobody to Nightmare: An inversion in a sense that it results as one of the greatest heros, not the most threatening villain; it's first aquatic and not suitable for battling on the surface, then by #34's flashback, it can fly like Pteragordon. Next, Dr Ulshade upgraded it for space travel and finally, Yayoi took it further with an anti-Deboss cell programme.
Purple Is Powerful: If being described as most powerful together with Pteragordon isn't enough, it's uploaded with anti-Deboss programme!
A silver and gold Zyudenryu based on a Brachiosaurus. Has at least three modes: normal Zyudenryu, Zyuden Giant, and a combined form (or at least parts of it) with the first five Zyudenryu. And to top it off, it can store the Zyudenchi of the thirteen Guardians in its back. Further, the Spirit Base is contained within his body. Wears armor on his body of the fallen Guardians. Transforms via "Super Snapping Transformation."
Also a notable part of his physical design; each of the golden areas of Bragigas' armor is a stylized representation of the Guardian Zyudenryu.
Authority Equals Asskicking: Was Torin's partner in the original fight with Deboss, and was able to go toe to toe with Deboss himself, being the only Zyudenryu whod could even touch him. He's also the one who finished Deboss off that time.
Good Counterpart: To Deboss. Both are the strongest being of their faction and serve as their factions home base. However, where Deboss doesn't care about his followers at all, Bragigas was severely enraged and mourned the Guardians being destroyed. They were also both seemingly killed at the end of the battle in ancient times, with their factions actions largely revolving around reviving them.
Manly Tears: Yes, even giant mechanical dinosaurs can cry when they witness the slaughter of their comrades. His tears also created the Guardian Stones.
Nice Guy: The big guy returns Daigo's and Ian's Guardian Stones in the beginning of #35 as a way of thanking them for helping to revive him.
Papa Wolf: When he saw the Guardians be destroyed during the Final Battle of the first fight with Deboss, he got so furious he proceeded to combine the power of all 10 Zyudenryu and finished off Deboss with a Wave Motion Gun.
These Zyudenryu have no physical bodies, instead granting special powers to the team through their weapons and mecha. It is revealed later that each of them did have a body, but were gravely injured during the initial battle with Master Deboss and could only give Torin their Zyudenchi before passing on.
A pair of small Zyudenryu mechs, both based on a Deinonychus. Rather than forming into a mecha, they combine to form the team's motorcycle. And unlike the mechs with independent bodies, there can be one bike for each battery.
Finishing Move: Zyuden Brave Finishnote After being catapulted into the air by his team, Kyoryu Red throws the Kentrospiker infused with Brave energy towards the enemy. There's also a variant in #20, where Kyoryu Red simply forms the weapon and slashes the enemy repeatedly.
Spikes of Doom: Only implied though, through its name, ending lyrics description and a failed attempt to use it with the Gabrevolver.
A Zyudenryu based on a Styracosaurus. Anyone hit from a shot by this immediately falls in love with the first object they see.
Early-Bird Cameo: Futabain's first use actually came in Superhero Taisen Z and was used again in Gaburincho of Music before it finally debuted in show.
The mecha which consists of the various combinations of the Kyoryugers' partners, the Zyudenryu.
The primary robot of the Kyoryugers, normally consisting of the Zyudenryu Gabutyra (main body), Stegotchi (right arm), and Dricera (left arm). It can have other combinations simply by swapping the arms of Kyoryuzin.
Finishing Move: Has one or two for each form of Kyoryuzin, their names being in the form of "(Name of Kyoryuzin mode) Brave Finish."
Kyoryuzin: Two different finishers:
Kyoryuzin Brave Finish: Kyoryuzin fires off an energy projection from Gabutyra's head which is shaped like said Voltasaur's head, which chomps through the unfortunate Debo Monster it's facing.
Zyudenken Brave Finish: Kyoryuzin channels Brave energy into the Zyudenken for a sword slash finisher.
Kyoryuzin Stegotchi Zakutor: Kyoryuzin Brave Finishnote Gabutyra conjures a ball of golden energy which is then infused into the Zakutor Sword before Kyoryuzin slides in with a slash. Can also be used as an aerial jumping slash.
Kyoryuzin Western: Kyoryuzin Western Brave Finishnote Kyoryuzin Western generates a ball of energy from a slash in the air by the Zakutor Sword, which is then fired off by the Parasa Beam Gun.
Kyoryuzin Macho: Kyoryuzin Macho Brave Finishnote Kyoryuzin Macho spins in place as it delivers a flurry of strikes from the Ankydon Hammer, then finishes up by sending the Debo Monster flying with an uppercut.
Raiden Kyoryuzin: Zyudenken Lightning Brave Finishnote Raiden Kyoryuzin flies high in the air, generates lightning into the Zyudenken, and strikes down the enemy by soaring down from above to perform a vertical slash.
Kyoryuzin Kung-Fu: Kyoryuzin Kung-Fu Brave Finishnote Kyoryuzin Kung-Fu generates energy into the Bunpachy Ball and swings with great force to break through enemy defences and destroy them.
Bakuretsu Kyoryuzin: Two-step process:
Zyuden Exploding Storm: Gabutyra's mouth opens and a massive blast of Brave fires out, damaging and paralyzing the target. Uses Yayoi's program made specifically to destabilize Deboss cells.
Zyudenhō Exploding Brave Finish: Cocking Plezuon's Zyudenchi three times, Bakuretsu Kyoryuzin fires out a projection of Brave that takes the form of Plezuon. It then impales and lifts it's target away, before it explodes.
Gigant Kyoryuzin: Two different finishers:
Super Zyuden Gigant Full Blaster: Charging Brave from all 23 Zyudenchi, Gigant Kyoryuzin fires a seven pronged blast of Brave from its chest at the foe.
Super Zyuden All Gigant Explosion: After initiating Gigant Formation, Gigant Kyoryuzin wields the Gigant Cannon, allowing it to fire a concentrated blast of the Kyoryuger and Zyudenryu's Brave at the enemy.
Kyoryuzin + Wizardragon: Zyuden Brave Strike Endnote Kyoryuzin docks with the Wizardragon in its Strike Phase and performs a Rider Kick. The only time this attack is used, Wizard uses the Super Sentai Ring to draw upon the power of all the past Sentai Tyrannosaurs, causing an image of a burning Gabutyra head to appear on the Wizardragon before the entire machine lights on fire.
Combined with his post-combination pose taking place in a wrestling ring, this could double as a Shout-Out to the late pro-wrestler Randy Savage, who was known for wearing bright pink in his ring attire.
Mecha Expansion Pack: Most mecha can combine with Gabutyra to become the arms of the combined robot; each one granting unique weaponry. Some combinations have special titles (all others are called Kyoryuzin [mecha X] [mecha Y]):
Gabutyra + Stegotchi + Dricera = Kyoryuzin's default mode. note Referred to as "Samba" when used through Kyoryu Red Carnival.
The mecha of Kyoryu Violet. Unlike Kyoryuzin or Pteraiden-Oh, it can only swap out its left arm due to the fact that the right arm is formed by the head of Plezuon.
Finishing Move: Plezu-Oh Brave Finishnote Plezu-Oh fires a powerful beam from its Plezu Cannon after cocking it three times.
Plezu-Oh Parasagun: Plezu-Oh Parasagun Brave Finishnote Plezu-Oh gathers Brave and, after cocking Plezuon's Zyudenchi three times, fires out a double laser blast through the Plezu Cannon and Parasa Beam Gun.
Mecha Expansion Pack: Like the other mecha, other Zyudenryu can attach as an arm (but only the left arm; the right is an Arm Cannon). All combinations are called simply Plezu-Oh [attachment name].
An alien race created from the cells of the giant creature known as "Deboss". They invaded Earth millions of years ago, only to be defeated by Torin and the Zyudenryu, and sealed into the frozen ice caps. With the thawing of the planet they were freed from their slumber, and now seek to release Deboss from his icy tomb. To do this, they must thaw his frozen heart by gathering three different types of human emotion: Anger, Sadness and Happiness.
Color-Coded Characters: Each of their dominant colors is shared with a Kyoryuger: Dogold is red and gold, Aigaron blue, Candelira pink, Luckiero green and Chaos black.
Spell My Name with an S: So far we've had "Deboss" and "Devoss" note ("b" sounds in Japanese can be translated as "v" sounds) but after episode 14 we have "Deboth" which was found on a textbook Luckyuro was reading from.
Theme Naming: The Generals' names are all derived from forms of currency: Dogold, Aigaron = galleon, Candelilla = lira, Luckyuro = euro.
The Dark Species
The giant alien that once attempted to invade Earth millions of years ago. His subordinates, the Deboss Army, are created from his cells.
Returned in Brave 22, but Came Back Wrong and was almost completely destroyed by the newly formed Bakuretsu Kyoryuzin.
Returns and appears all around the world in Brave 41.
Came Back Wrong: Is revived in the same condition that he used to wipe out the dinosaurs. Unfortunately for the Deboss, it's wrong for things on their part. Due in part to his heart not fully thawing from a small lack of Joy and Rage.
The Dreaded: Simply mentioning his return drawing near strikes fear into our fearless heroes.
In episode 22, when he revived, the Zyudenryu were almost paralyzed with fear just because they had to fight against him.
Dumb Muscle: Deboss has no form of strategy other than "Kill everything" leaving Chaos in charge after his revival.
God of Evil: While not explicitly stated, Chaos is his High Priest and all of the Deboss Army was created from his cells.
This has become more evident since ep 17, where it's shown that even the Zorima, who thus far have been been faring about as well as you'd expect, are suddenly far stronger then they were previously. And that's not factoring the Knights, or Chaos, who gains the ability to heal wounds of Debo Monsters and strengthen them, as well as grant them new weaponry. Why does all this occur? Because Master Deboss is beginning to awaken.
And in episode 22, he returned in the same form that he had used to wipe out the dinosaurs! Shudder!
Not Quite Dead: Just before Bakuretsu Kyoryuzin's finisher caused him to explode, Master Deboss implanted his heart into Chaos. This not only allowed his body to survive, albeit back as the Frozen Castle, but he enabled Chaos and Dogold to survive as well. Along with Aigaron, who was saved from his explosion, just like the team was.
Captain Ersatz: Looks like a demonic version of the Statue of Liberty.
The Chessmaster: It is clear he is more of a strategist when compared to the much more active Deboss Legion Knights. When he comes up with a plan, it typically works.
Dangerously Genre Savvy: This goes hand-in-hand with his Chessmaster status. For example, when his generals reported that they had successfully blown up a Kyoryuger base (with their target inside), he immediately asks if they confirmed the target was destroyed. (It was not.)
Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Subverted. He understands that humanity's bravery and courage gives them strength greater than Deboss, and wants those powers for both Deboss and himself.
Mouth of Sauron: He basically refers to himself as this trope in Episode 7.
In Brave 26 he is the only one to be able to understand Deboss's growling speech, relaying his words to the Knights.
Only Sane Man: Of the awakened Deboss commanders, he's about the only one who's completely serious played as such.
Orcus on His Throne: Doesn't really do anything, he just leaves the plotting to the Knights and Luckyuro, while letting the Bigger Bad decide whose plan to use. Somewhat justified, though because he is a High Priest, not a Knight or Spy like the others.
Finally comes out and attacks Daigo and summons Pteragordon in #7
Pet the Dog: He really does seem to care for and respect Luckyuro, and has taken it upon himself to 'teach' the Spy how to be a better monster.
Torin Is My Younger Brother: Chaos reveals that Torin was once part of the Deboss Legion and his younger brother, much to the horror of the 6 Kyoryugers.
We Have Reserves: After Dogold complains that his new body wouldn't last long, Chaos just answers that they would use another monster.
Wham Line: "Torin here was once a member of the Deboss Legion. He is my younger brother."
Wound That Will Not Heal: In one episode he reveals that Torin cut off one of the wing/flame-like objects on his back long ago; he could regenerate it, but chose not to do so until he inflicts the same pain on Torin. Even after he has one of Torin's wings hacked off, though, he still doesn't regenerate.
The Knight in charge of gathering Anger. Dogold is a perpetually-angry Blood Knight who is always seeking to vent his frustrations through battle.
Animated Armor: Was this before possessing Utsusemimaru and is what he probably is now.
Somewhat. In Brave 11, Chaos created another Cambrima and placed Dogold's facemask on him to allow the commander to eat the weaker monster, and gain a body. However both noted that this would last only about a month, to which Chaos simply replies that they'll merely use another Cambrima. No longer an issue now that he has Endolf.
Cuteness Proximity: Gets surprisingly close to this when he first sees Debo Kyawaeen, getting very flustered and tongue-tied, but walks away grumbling awkwardly before anything else could happen.
The Dragon: Chaos seems to rely on him to perform the most important missions, most likely because Dogold can actually focus and not go on silly tangents.
Once Endolf showed up, however, Chaos started using him more that Dogold, and it looks like Dogold might lose this status. And then Dogold takes action
Dual Wielding: After stealing Endolf's body, he can use both his own sword and Endolf's at the same time.
The Evil Genius: He has mastered the art of getting multiple emotions from one plan and can create very crafty plans once he possessed Endolf. Candelira even compares them.
Evil Laugh: Gives a good one after revealing the truth to Utsusemimaru.
He gets another good one when he takes control of Endolf's body.
Expy: A being that once possessed an emotionally driven, but proud warrior and now fights the now-freed warrior while looking for different hosts? If that doesn't remind you of Nightmare or Zen-Aku, I don't know what does....
Flying Face: Any time he's stuck without a body of his own.
Knight of Cerebus: A minor one. But he's better at the whole being evil thing than Canderrilla, lacks the comedic quirks of Aigallon, and his plans are far more malicious than his fellow knights.
Literal Split Personality: It seems as though his personality without Utsusemimaru is much calmer and MUCH more evil and vicious. His voice is also much different then it was while the possessed Kyoryuger was inside his armor.
Then he possessed Endolf. He now has more control over his rage and is much smarter.
Possession Burnout: Looking for a permanent body because the Cambrimas keep dying out every month. And even if he leaves on before the month is over, it melts. As of Brave 29, he has made a near-dying Endolf his new host.
Pet the Dog: A minor moment since it only served to further his plans, but in Brave 29, he needs to keep Luckiero from going to Endorf's aid. Being Dogold, you'd think he'd just beat him up or lock him in a cage, but instead he just keeps him occupied with a pile of snacks, puzzles and manga.
But considering that he had to get Endolf out of the way without Chaos being any the wiser, this makes his plan even more clever.
Power Of Hate: His hatred and rage makes him stronger. And Kyoryu Gold's hatred for him makes him even stronger.
And he's powered by Endolf, the manifestation of Deboss and Chaos's combined hatred.
Pride: Subtle, but it is there. He considers himself above using something like using Pteragordon against the Kyoryugers, and seems to think he is the perfect warrior.
The Unfavorite: Ever since Endolf arrived Chaos has been using him less and less. This REALLY makes him angry, to the point where he's the one that let's the team in on what the other Legion members are trying to do in Brave 28. The kicker? He doesn't get this jealousy yet.
Came Back Wrong: He has no idea where his new Super Mode came from, and thinks it has to do with this trope. Ever since his explosion, he says he feels really dark inside, which explains the change in his eyes, and voice. Interestingly, Endolf seems to want to push him towards these feelings...
Catchphrase: "That stings" note (Shimiru Waa) or some variation involving the word 'Stings'.
Combat Tentacles: Used these in a flashback to kill Ian's friend. One of the Debo Monsters under his command also had these.
Justified, since they were a feature of the cloak he gave to said Debo Monster. Another reason he was so bummed that he got destroyed.
Conservation of Ninjutsu: Tends to get quickly taken out when fighting with the other generals, but he's a beast by himself.
Defanged Horrors: A villain whose job is gathering human sorrow? Well that's easy, just go start murdering people's loved ones...oh right, he's on a kid's show.
Although he did get sorrow by making people see illusions of people's loved ones in Brave 8.
The Eeyore: You kinda have to be to have the title of Knight of Sorrow.
Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Seemed to be pretty bummed out when a particular monster that he liked was killed. Then again, it might just be him being his usual self.
Jekyll & Hyde: While the Jekyll here is by no means good, his evil side acts like a different person, will attack other Deboss members if provoked, and can pin Dogold to the wall.
Kick the Dog: Is pretty unrepentant for murdering Shiro, berates Ian for not realizing it was him, and proceeded to kick his ass in a fight. Not to mention he really had no reason to kill Shiro in the first place, since he already had the gem he wanted and a regular gun's not going to hurt him. Not to later mention mocking Ian about it to gather more hatred.
Taking You with Me: He was so enraged with the Kyoryugers in #24 for killing Master Deboss that he was completely red and went on a ramapage which ended with him self-destructing and taking the Kyoryugers with him. Subverted for the Kyoryugers when Ian used Tuperanda just seconds before detonation, and by the Deboss when Chaos teleported Aigaron away safely.
Took a Level in Jerkass: He was originally as harmless as Candelillia, but as the show goes on he becomes far more villainous and sadistic, constantly gloating about murdering Ian's friends, begins using Breaking Lectures on people, and admits that he enjoys watching people suffer.
The Knight in charge of gathering Happiness. Candelilla is a bouncy and colourful girl who always seems to be in a good mood. Her singing can power up Debo Monsters.
Affably Evil: Could count as this, seeing how despite being evil, she's bright, cheerful, and her schtick revolves around wanting to make humans happy.
Actually subverted. She specializes in 'fake' happiness: A temporary, short-term happiness that will prove to be disastrous in the long run.
Though played straight at times. Her first scheme had her gather genuine happiness that came from humans eating the cakes baked by Debo Batissier, and she was quite upset when the cakes gave them painful cavities that made them sad.
Faux Affably Evil: Arguably shifts into this trope in Brave 20, as she happily puts into motion a plan that would kill all of Tokyo and gloats about it.
Mind Control Music: Uses this a few time in order to harvest joy from others. In Brave 28, she uses it to take full control of Torin.
Not-So-Harmless Villain: Until Brave 20, her 'evil' plans weren't exactly, well, that evil. But during Brave 20 she formulates a plan that will kill every person in the city, all while keeping up her trademark cheer, establishes her as stone cold evil.
She later proves to be the key piece in Endolf's plan to make Torin become evil again.
Perky Goth: Dresses up as one when she sings the song that makes Torin become evil again.
Candelilla's direct subordinate, Luckyuro is a chubby, childish imp who worships Candelilla and delights in following her orders. He has a purse on his belly in which he keeps all manner of things, including the "Nutritious Joyro", a watering can he uses to make Debo Monsters grow to tremendous size.
Ambiguous Gender: It hasn't been stated what gender Luckyuro is, though most assume that he is male based on his use of male pronouns.
Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: In Brave 14, he planted and armed a bomb after infiltrating Spirit Base, but when he saw that Amy had left the latest issue of a manga that they're both fans of in there, he just had to stop to read it.
He would've revived Endolf after his defeat at the hands of Daigo, but he was too distracted by a puzzle given to him by Dogold.
In Brave 30, he's tasked to get the Stymero Guardian Stone and decides to sneak into the mansion to retrieve it. He gets distracted by the laser tag game going on.
Berserk Button: His main pet peeve is when people imitate him or his catchphrase.
Beware the Silly Ones: He may be the silliest looking member of the Deboss Army (and that's saying something), but he also seems to be the most sadistic.
Catch Phrase: Both "luckyu" and "unluckyu", depending on the situation.
Hammerspace: His Stomach purse holds a variety of things including the watering can of Sukusuku Jyro, a toy hammer, the Sukusuku Balls, or even be used to hold trash!
Heel Realization: A small one in Brave 39, where Amy states that if humanity goes extinct then he won't be able to read any more of his favorite manga. She also states that the mangaka also went his way of giving him a drawing as thanks for his fan letters.
A new Knight created by Chaos after he has an epiphany that Resentment* "Urami", a Japanese word that refers to the complex mixture of regret and vengeance one feels after a failure or loss. could be the ultimate counter to the Bravery of the Kyoryuger. Though a loner at heart, Endolf is ordered to work with the other Knights to strengthen the intensity of the emotions they gather by harvesting Resentment from their victims at the same time. He is the most powerful of the Knights under Chaos, and gains more power after each loss by feeding on his own Resentment.
Badass: In his debut he hands the team their asses on a near constant basis... while looking bored the entire time!
More Dakka: Pulls this off despite his gun just being a pistol.
Not So Different: Despite him and Dogold hating the each other, they're pretty much the same. They are both Knight of Cerebus, both are Jerkasses, and both are more serious than the other Knights...which, in hindsight, explains a lot about their rivalry.
Dogold exploit this by stating that their similarities will make controling endolf as his new host easier
The Power of Hate: His main job is collecting hatred/resentment which is what Chaos believes is the ultimate counter to the Kyoryugers' bravery.
Put on a Bus: Becomes Dogold's new host. Whether or not he will return is unclear.
Spell My Name with an S: Depending on which fansub you watch, he's either Endorf the Soldier of Hatred (Over-Time) or Endolf the Knight of Resentment (TV-Nihon) "Urami" can translate as either of these.
A duplicate of Torin that was created in order to fulfill the role as the Deboss Legion's Priest of the Demon Blade due to Torin's Heel-Face Turn. Naturally, as the original Torin is compassionate and honourable, this version is dark and sadistic; taking pleasure in the pain and suffering of those that oppose him.
BFS: Turns the Feather Edge into one powered by the darkness of the Debo Monster ghosts.
Cain and Abel: To Torin, considering he's Chaos' younger brother, and thus Torin's.
Dragged Off to Hell: The Gigant Formation's blast pulls him into Hell before exploding and sealing the entrance.
Evil Twin: Is a recreation of Torin's original evil self.
Flash Step: Carried over this ability from the original Torin and used it to great effect in battle, to the point where Torin was the only one capable to even keep up with his speed.
Necromancer: Can summon the ghosts of deceased Debomonsters, and gains power from their growth.
Oh Crap: Has this reaction upon seeing the Gigant Formation be created.
Signature Move: Demon Blade! Madness Flame!* A powered-up slash in the shape of an X
This Cannot Be!: His reaction when Torin (now Kyoryu Silver) begins to overpower him.
Undying Loyalty: Was created to be totally obedient to Chaos. He even affectionately calls him brother.
Would Hurt a Child: Almost succeeded in sacrificing Rika in order to make all the Deboss Ghosts more powerful.
A knight made of brutality. During the events of Gaburincho of Music, D is given the Deathryuger Battery and assumes this form. Using Meeko, he is able to take control of Tobaspino before his defeat. After escaping Deboss hell, D has returned to build an army of the dead to take over the world.
Hand Blast: His Tsura Launcher attack, which he used to wipe out the dinosaurs.
An Ice Person: In fact, his name's a play on the Japanese name for the ice age (Hyougaki).
Informed Ability: Was the one that wiped out the dinosaurs and claims to be Deboss' greatest creation...but he just so happens to be the first Monster of the Week, and thus gets destroyed easily.
This one has just been revealed to be a subversion, because episode #17 reveals two things. First, he was more powerful because Deboss was awake back then. Second, he wasn't the only one who wiped out the dinosaurs. He, Debo Viruson (Virus), and Debo Nagareboshi (Meteor) were a Power Trio, which was first mentioned in #17 and confirmed in #21. In other words, when he was defeated in the first episode, it was a severe case of The Worf Effect due to Worf Had The Flu. To put the first part in perspective, when Deboss showed signs of coming close to awakening, it took a great deal of effort for the Kyoryugers to kill the Mooks.
Abnormal Ammo: fires his decayed teeth from his mouth. Anything hit by those projectiles start decaying as well.
Emotion Eater: Absorbs joy from people happily eating its cake, but later, it unintendedly gives them toothaches and absorbs their sorrow instead.
Evil Chef: Subverted. One, he's a patissier. Two, he legitimately wanted to make people happy, just at their expense of the god of evil being resurrected.
Jekyll & Hyde: normally a happy-go-lucky sort of er, guy (he's actually content with making people happy by feeding them the sweets he made, which is actually a decent thing other than how it ties in with Deboss' goals), but when some unidentified force possesses him, he becomes a malevolent monster.
From a Single Cell: Ramirez and Ankydon destroyed him in the middle ages, but a piece managed to get into Ankydon allowing him to regenerate. The Kyoryuger prevent this from happening the second time by launching him high into the air before the explosion, preventing him from possessing another one of the mecha to survive.
Berserk Button: Another Invoked Example, he also revealed the ranger's respective Berserk Buttons in the process. An even better example than before as he disguised the mooks as people his targets knew, have them understand their berserk buttons through mind reading and push them.
Evil Knockoff: Turns a group of Zorima into these for the Kyoryugers to try and ruin their teamwork.
Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Basically screwed himself over for shouting at Daigo for his incompetence, thus breaking his own cover and stopping the team from breaking apart.
Verbal Tic: Sizzle, or any other similar translation.
Mobile Maze: His design is based on one and turns the amusement park into one for those that fell for his illusion.
Cambrima | Voice Actors: Kenichiro Matsuda and Tamotsu Nishiwaki
Alas, Poor Villain: Supposedly one of the strongest monsters in the Deboss Army, and it shows. However it debuts in the same arc as the Sixth Kyoryuger does. Even with a second one helping, they were taken down pretty quickly. Then again, the first Cambrima said that he (soon to be they) are 100x stronger then a Zorima, which is not a very good template to see how strong one is.
The fate of the third Cambrima. To revive Dogold, whom cannot move without someone in his armor, Chaos places his facemask on a newly created Cambrima...who is then consumed by the Knight of Anger. Worse? The poor sap won't last a month, and yet another is going to take it's place.
All Your Powers Combined: Unlike most monsters made by the Deboss that only derive from a single emotion, Cambrimas are created from all three. Naturally, this makes them much more powerful.
Carry a Big Stick: As revealed in #15, when some Joyro is dabbed onto a Cambrima's standard club weapon, it is instantly upgraded into a kanabo.
Elite Mooks: Seemed powerful at first, but by the second episode it appeared that their stance as a huge threat to the team diminished as the Kyoryuger fought them without much struggle and that they may be mass produced.
I Have Your Teammates: Tries to get Daigo, Ian, and Nossan to stand down by informing them that he's captured Souji and Amy. Backfires when Daigo announces that he'd be more worried if they weren't as strong as they are and shoots the crystal used to display them.
Wake Up Call Boss: Is the first creation of the Deboss Army that gives the team a good thrashing, even managing to capture Souji and Amy in #9.
Emotion Bomb: He uses people's feelings of unrequited love and super charges them to make them violently obsessed with whoever they are in love with. He also can use this power on feelings of friendship as seen with King and Nossan.
Emotion Eater: Takes the sadness of people in relationships of unrequited love.
Dangerously Genre Savvy: He showed remarkable intelligence during his run. His powers would make it so that every person that wish is granted dies by sunrise — including five of the Kyoryugers. So he decides to hide and wait for them to die instead of risking a fight.
Dissonant Serenity: Continuing Deboss tradition, he keeps a disturbingly cheerful personality as he gloats about how every single person in the city will die by sunrise.
Hoist by His Own Petard: He will grant every wish on the cursed Tanabata slips. This really bit him in the ass because Daigo's wish—to see his father again—hadn't been fulfilled. Then, Daigo's father emerges and kicks his ass with just one punch.
Bond Creature: Somewhat. As soon as Viruson is absorbed by Master Deboss, Computerviruson begins to break down and is destroyed. However, this was partially intentional, as his residual energy shows the Deboss where Plezuon Lab is hidden.
Expendable Clone: Averted. Debo Viruson calls C.Viruson his offspring, and the latter refers to the former as Master. Clearly, they both have a great deal of respect for the other.
Jerkass: His main goal in life is to torment the team through their dreams, so they can't sleep, and thus can be beaten easily.
Game Breaker: Not only is his power REALLY effective (to the point of being able to use a pillow so comfy, it causes the target to instantaneously fall asleep, allowing him to then enter their dreams to attack them.), but he was created by Luckyuro, meaning that Akkumoon is the only Debo Monster thus far that does not feed off emotion.
Near Villain Victory: Everyone was so tired due to his antics, that even Ovirappoo wasn't able to keep them awake anymore...until Rin gave Souji her energy drink that woke him and everyone else up.
Troll: Luckyuro created Akkumoon so he could enter the Kyoryuger's dreams and then they both could troll them to the point of total exhaustion.
The Ditz: Him being an accidental fusion seems to have scrambled his brain.
Fusion Dance: Was created by accident due to Luckiero mixing up the previous Deboss monsters. He was thinking more of Doronbosu as the one seeking 'treasure' (Ep 4), but Airgaron assumed he was thinking of Debo Zaihon (Ep 20) who was the one that made people want treasure.
How Do I Shot Web?: Thanks to Luckyuro's bumbling he doesn't even know how his powers work.
