    Yukito Sanjyou 

Yukito Sanjō / AbareBlue | Actor: Sho Tomita

A charismatic 21 year old chiropractor and the Anti-Hero of the group, Yukito will help anyone, but charges outrageously high prices for it: in fact, he asked Asuka for U.S. $400,000,000 in order to assume his role as AbareBlue, something Asuka naively accepted and promised to save and pay, much to Yukito's surprise. He seems cold, but has a kind heart underneath, though he will never fully reveal his feelings. Yukito chose to move into the Dino House with the others to avoid having to commute from the area where he lives. Yukito's anti-social personality comes from his past: when he was little, his father tried to groom him into taking over the Sanjou Corporation for the future. Yukito was forced to study daily and was never given breaks; he wasn't even allowed to have any friends. The last straw that broke the father-son relationship was when his father paid his girlfriend's family to move away while he was in junior high. Yukito never forgave him for that and claimed that he hated him, but in reality, he harbored a self-loathing for a long time.

In the finale, Yukito returned to his chiropractor business, and in Dekaranger vs. Abaranger, it seems that Yukito is in a relationship with Emiri. By Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, they're married. His Burstosaur partner is Kera.


    Ranru Itsuki 

Ranru Itsuki / AbareYellow | Actress: Aiko Ito

A 20 year old technology mistress who owns a German BD-1 bicycle she nicknamed "Birdie." All she really wants is peace. She was formerly trained to be an idol, but Ranru hated it and left to work in the mechanical field. She is interested in anything mechanical, can create her own devices, and is a genius in mechanics. Ranru used to be afraid of nattō until she was forced to conquer it during a battle with a Trinoid. Ranru also carries a small camera with her and usually snaps photos of the enemy during mid-battle to come up with a strategy on how to defeat it. She sometimes has an itchy back and often wants others to scratch it for her.

In the finale, Ranru goes to work at a racetrack. Her Burstosaur partner is Ptera.


  • Action Girl: She really can fight as her male counterparts.
  • Idol Singer: She's supposed to be one until she became a mechanic.

    Asuka 

Asuka / AbareBlack | Actor: Kaoru Abe

A warrior from Dino Earth with a sad past. He was the last of the people who fought the Evolians and escaped to Earth. He brought the Dino Bracelets and gave them to the Abarangers. When he arrived, the Dino Harp was damaged, so he couldn't transform. When he got it finally restored, he lost his first battles as he couldn't use his Dino Guts correctly, until his true sense of justice awakened. Asuka has shown enormous amounts of power, as he has been able even of defeating a Giganoid and an upgraded KillerGhost on his own: however, due to his gentle personality, he often holds back during battles. In one episode, it was revealed that his surname was "Ono", although he only uses it on Another Earth. His Burstosaur partner is Brachio.

In the finale, Asuka and Mahoro named their new child Mikoto, after AbareKiller, and returned to Dino Earth with his family and the Burstosaurs. He would return in two Reunion Shows following the series; The first is during their team-up with the Dekarangers, where he was brought back to Earth by his daughter's power to help the gang, and he was able to rescue Ryouga and Ban/DekaRed from Kazaku before they joined up with the others. His second appearance is in the GoGo Sentai Boukenger vs. Super Sentai anniversary movie with Bracho and his second child. He along with Tsubasa, Tetsu, and Nanami helped Eiji out during his battle with Chronos. He transferred his "Passionate Spirit" power to AkaRed to power DaiVoyager.


    Mikoto Nakadai 

Mikoto Nakadai / AbareKiller | Actor: Kotaro Tanaka

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/abarekiller_5657.jpg

A brilliant doctor who was bored with life until he saw the Evolian-controlled Burstosaurs attack the city, but was disappointed that they were used for good. He later found the egg of Burstosaur TopGaler and the DinoMinder and became AbareKiller. The DinoMinder, however, was unstable as it was made for the Legendary Zero Warrior on Dino Earth in the war against the Evolian.


  • The Ace: Deconstructed. Since nothing was ever a challenge for him, it rendered him bored and craving excitement.
  • Back from the Dead: In the Dekaranger team-up movie, if only temporarily.
  • Badass Boast: Delivers one to Dezumozorlya.
    Mikoto: Your clone?, Don't get me wrong, I am Human. I am myself, even if there is a part of you inside me I can easily destroy it. I will live as myself, and continue to live!!! That is my greatest excitement.
    • He gets an even better one after being ressurected by Saunagingan in Dekaranger vs Abaranger.
    Saunagingan: What is this? We were supposed to have resurrected the strongest denizen of Hell!
    Mikoto: And you expected someone else?
  • Badass Bookworm: Comes with the territory of being both a ranger and a doctor.
  • Badass Longcoat: Of the long white variety.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Is easily the most dangerous villain when first appears, setting him up as the Big Bad. But later gets pushed out of the position when Dezumozorlya makes his presence known.
  • Blood from the Mouth: Moments before he dies.
  • Body Horror: Bleeds immense wounds after Dezumozorlya separates from him, and mere moments before the Dino Minder explodes.
  • Broken Ace: It's eventually revealed that nothing in civilian life was ever a challenge for him due to being the host for half of the Big Bad, leading to his complete boredom.
  • Catchphrase: "How exciting".
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Most of his early fights have him dishing this out to the Abarangers.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Assumes leadership of the Evolians for a brief period,
  • Dr. Jerk: He saved lives as a doctor, including Ryouga's, but not out of anything resembling altruism. When Ryouga confronts him about this, Mikoto claims that saving his life was simply a game.
  • Drunk with Power: He gets the power to become a ranger, and sees it as the right to do as he pleases.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: While many classify him as a Sixth Ranger, it should be noted that he joined the team way too late.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Does care about Lije enough that after making a Heel–Face Turn he joins the effort to save her.
  • Evil Genius: He's a medical doctor and a member of the Evolians, though his field of expertise doesn't really tie in to his villainy.
  • Evil Laugh: Indulges in this occasionally.
  • For the Evulz: His motive for 90% of the series is to alleviate his own crushing boredom.
  • Genius Bruiser: He is a genius doctor, and is able to beat Abarangers singlehandedly.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Turns good at the last second.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He destroys the Dezumozrya fragment in him, knowing it's the only thing keeping him alive.
  • Heroic Will Power: He is not lying when he said he can destroy Dezumozorlya within him anytime, during his last battle he even managed to drew and took advantage of Dezumozorlya's regenerating power.
  • Image Song: "Dead End Game."
  • Irony: As he’s dying, he acknowledges that for all his Death Seeker tendencies, he actually wants to live.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Abaranger is initally a lighthearted and often surreal series. Then this guy shows up and not only hands repeated defeats to the Abarangers, he deals blows to their optimistic view of the world.
  • Light Is Not Good: He's a white ranger. Not only he's wearing white, rangers are supposed to be good! Yet he's using all his 'good' power for evil and lulz.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His Ranger name has killer in it.
  • No Challenge Equals No Satisfaction: His backstory. He was naturally good at anything he tried, and spent the majority of his life bored out of his skull as a result.
  • My Hero, Zero: His DinoMinder was made for the Legendary Zero Warrior on DinoEarth in the war against the Evolian.
  • The Pen Is Mightier: Wing Pentact
  • Pet the Dog: When the Abarangers indirectly save him from being trapped by Mikela and Voffa, he returns the favor and helps them against the current Monster of the Week.
  • Redemption Equals Death: A bittersweet one at that considering he's a Death Seeker until that time.
  • Redemption Promotion: Surprisingly. In the later arcs of the series he had been going through a period of Villain Decay. After making a a Heel–Face Turn, he takes a level in badass.
  • Red Visor, Take Warning: Spends most of the series as a very strong and dangerous villain. While there has been past rangers with red visors, his is also a particularly bloody shade of red.
  • The Smart Guy: He is a medical doctor after all.
  • Sixth Ranger: Though there was debate on the subject amongst fans as to whether or not he was one of these, eventually Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger officially counted him as a sixth ranger.
  • Super Speed: One of his preferred attacks: he can move at breakneck speed for a few seconds, allowing him to get in several hits faster than his opponents can block.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: With the "snark" part aimed at basically everyone.
  • Transformation Sequence: Averted. He doesn't have a dedicated or flashy transformation sequence unlike most Rangers, even one-off ones, even when he joins the team. It's not even remotely similar to the other Abarangers; it simply consists of whirling energies surrounding him as he transforms in a flash. The only time AbareKiller gets to be part of a proper sequence is the recreation of the show's sequence in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger for the Abaranger tribute episode, though Mikoto as AbareKiller never gets one himself, even when he reappears, demorphing THEN remorphing.

  • The Trope Without a Title: Calls Mikoto "human".
  • Undying Loyalty: To Mikoto, to the point where he’s willing to die with him instead of abandoning him.

Allies

    Emiri Imanaka 

Emiri Imanaka | Actress: Michi Nishijima

Emiri is a high school student. When the Burstosaurs first came to earth, Emiri heard their call and almost became AbareYellow. Unfortunately, her body was unable to support the transformation, but Emiri contributes for the team, such as suggesting names (she came up with Bakuryū Sentai Abaranger, AbareMax and SenpuGoraiAbarenOh when the other heroes donated their Dinoguts to AbarenOh in Abaranger vs. Hurricaneger). She tries her hardest to become an Abaranger and eventually does after Tensaikku's defeat in terms of AbarePink (or "AbarePig" as Yukito called her), where she turned herself into a pig using psychic powers. One of her many mishaps are the time that Voffa tried to turn her into Giganoid #6: Giant. Later in the series, Emiri creates her own AbarePink suit (of course without powers), in order to convince her parents to let her stay at the Dino Curry House, but this suit lasted for only a single episode. Emiri also nicknames herself as "Emi-pon." The epilogue of the show and Dekaranger vs. Abaranger seems to imply that she is in a relationship with Yukito and that she went to work for him. By Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, they're married.


  • Butt-Monkey: If something bad gone happen is almost always her. Most notable when she is turned in giant and later frozen in movie.

    Ryunosuke Sugishita 

Ryunosuke Sugishita | Actor: Kouen Okumura

Sugishita runs a curry restaurant called Dino House, which is the Abarangers' base of operations. When the Burstosaurs' first came to Earth, Sugishita heard their call and almost became AbareBlue. Unfortunately, his body was unable to support the transformation. Kind and supporting of the Abaranger, he often gives advice and helps the team whenever possible. After the fight against the Evolians, Sugishita's curry business became extremely successful and resulted in him receiving great wealth and setting up a global chain of Dino House curry restaurants, as seen in Dekaranger vs. Abaranger. However, he lost ownership to Yatsudenwani. Dino House is a recurring element of some Vs movies; characters from Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger through Engine Sentai Go-onger have met each other through Ryunosuke and the restaurant. Emiri nicknames him "Suke-san."


  • Refused by the Call: When the Bakuryuu first came to Earth, Sugishita heard their call and almost became AbareBlue. Unfortunately, his body was unable to support the transformation.

Mai thinks of Ryoga as a father and always cheers him on when he fights as AbaRed. Starting at the end of ep. 39, Rije's spirit/the mysterious girl chooses Mai to be the only one to see her. In ep. 41, a virus transforms human people into Barmia and Mai was infected as well. The mysterious girl warns the Abaranger that the Barmia are Mai's friends, but Mai was cured when her Dino Guts awoke when she cheered for the Abarangers after seeing Ryoga and the others in danger from the Barmia. After the end of the series, Mai stayed in California with Ryoga.



The Evolians

    Dezumozorlya 

Dezumozorlya | Voice actor: Masaharu Sato]

The Evolien god, a parasitic entity that was held in the meteorite that crashed to Earth. When Earth was split, Dezumozorlya's essence was divided between the two earths, and took one being of each world as its host and transmigrated itself through the host's descendants. It is said that because of its very presence that war and famine broke out and some of its hosts have wreaked havoc throughout the course of human history. In the time of Abaranger, Mikoto held the essence of the inactive Earth-counterpart, and the Dezumozorlya of DinoEarth was originally the Tree of Life until it found a mobile host in Lije through Mahoro. But once Lije became Lijewel, Dezumozorlya entered a dormant state until it came in contact with its other half during the Killer Giganoid event. Dezumozorlya's goal is to assimilate all life, to that end it must obtain a new body and rejoin its other half in Mikoto even if it means killing both Mikoto and Lijewel in the process.

When it was purged from Lijewel, Dezumozorlya sought stronger inhuman hosts, merging Mikela and Voffa as a temporary vessel to obtain Bakurenoh as a new body and absorb Mikoto. But both attempts failed with the death of the other half and Dezumovorla's demise. To that end, Dezumoryla re-entered the Tree of Life, using it as a medium to transfer its primal urges throughout the entire Garden Palace and remake it as its final body. From there, Invasion Garden Ultimate Form DezumoGevirus intended to invoke another 200 Days of Darkness on Another-Earth. When Asuka rescued Mahoro, they were attacked by DezumoGevirus, who was formed in the image of what both Mahoro & Asuka feared: the Cursed Armor. Dezumogevirus was fatally injured by the Burstosaurs combining their powers to kill it, but it attempted to take them down it. Abaren'oh and MaxOuja seemingly sacrificed themselves to stop this, but were later revealed to have survived by burrowing underground.


  • Bad Boss: Cares nothing for its underlings and will consume them into a new host body to suit its needs.
  • Big Bad: It's the true leader of the Evoliens and the one driving their invasion of Earth.
  • Demonic Possession: Dezumozorlya can possess anyone who contains a fraction of its essence.
  • Eldritch Abomination: A monsterous entity that moves from one body to the next, and if it fused both his halves into a host body it would be the end of the world. Even when dying it still nearly brought about the end of all life on Earth.
  • God of Evil: It is worshipped by the Evoliens as a god and yes, it is very evil.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Not initially, but once the danger of its two halves emerging comes into play the plot gets far more serious.
  • One-Winged Angel: In the penultimate episode, it assimilates the Garden Palace to become DezumoGevirus.
  • Orcus on His Throne: Spends most of its time dormant inside Lije due to the lack of a body of its own.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: Brainwashed Mahoro so she could give birth to Lije.
  • Taking You with Me: After being mortally wounded by the Burstosaurs' combined assault, it tries to pull them in and take them out when it explodes.

    Lije 

Lije | Actress: Kasumi Suzuki

She is Dezumozorlya's child-like metatron, responsible for linking the two worlds. She was created when the Dino-Earth Dezumozorlya entered Mahoro's body, using her and Asuka's unborn child to serve as its host. But half of Lije's soul took a life of it own and became another side to her, a girl only referred to as the mysterious girl. Lije would eventually meet up with Mikoto, having feelings for him. She was later force-grown into an adult, Evolien Queen Lijewel, forcing her and the mysterious girl to completely separate. In her new form, Lijewel's powers increased with attacks like "Bombardment Kiss" & "Lijewel Cross Illusion". After Dezumoryla was awakened, Lijewel was dormant until she refused to kill Mikoto. After forcing her back, Dezumorlya reconstructed her body into Lijewel's Strengthened Form DezumoLijewel to fight the Abarangers itself. Through the combined power of all five Abarangers, the mysterious girl rejoined Lijewel and 'overpowered' Dezumozorlya, forcing it out. With Dezumozorlya removed, she regressed to her infant form.


    Jeanne 

Jeanne / Mahoro | Actress: Eri Sakurai

The Destruction Messenger, she's really Mahoro, Asuka's Love Interest from DinoEarth. When she and her brother entered the Garden Palace to end the fighting, they were captured by Dezumozorya who showed her that Asuka "abandoned" them before using her to create Lije. Since then, Mahoro discarded her name and became the Destruction Messenger Jeanne, fixated on killing Asuka for betraying her. After killing Geildon, she used the Cursed Armor whenever she needed to, though she became haunted by the past thanks to a mysterious girl who looks like Rije. After the explosion of the Anamolicarus, Jeanne was restored to her original self thanks to Asuka's sacrifice of wearing the Cursed Armor once more. Although the Abarangers found her and figured out who she was, Mahoro had lost her memory and worked in the Dino House until her memory came back after learning that Asuka had the Cursed Armor which forced Mahoro to assume her Evolien identity to free Asuka from the armor. After that, she helped the Abarangers in secret until Dezumozorya learned of her treachery. In the end, she was able to relinquish her guilt and return with Asuka to Dino Earth to start their lives a new.
