- Contrasting Sequel Main Character:
- The Ryusoulgers are ancient tribesmen from a supernatural village, which is a contrast to the Abarangers (Japanese civilians) and Kyoryugers (Multinational Team).
- The team's signature weapon is a sword (RyuSoul Sword), to contrast with the Kyoryugers' signature weapon, a gun (Gaburevolver).
- Their knight theme also makes them the opposite of the Magirangers, since both of them are Medieval European Fantasy Sentai teams.
- In a most recent transition, the Ryusoulgers are traditional knights who were passed down their powers in order to fight villains and protect their village, which greatly differs from the Lupinrangers, who were Phantom Thieves that stole their powers, even breaking the law to do so. Meanwhile, the Ryusoulgers are overall quite young (looking) despite being trained in using they're powers even before the series began when compared to the equally dedicated but more visibly older and professional Patrangers, who didn't even receive their powers until the end of the first episode.
- Elemental Powers: With KyoRyuSouls they not only gain a new armor, but also new elemental abilities. Per standard of Sentai Series, they first show the red and sixth ranger using them, but the other members are also capable of using them. For example:
- The MeraMeraSoul gives the user the MeraMera armor which gives them powers over fire.
- The BiriBiriSoul gives its user the BiriBiri armor which gives them powers over electricity.
- The KurayamiSoul gives its user the Kurayami armor which gives them powers of darkness
- the KagayakiSoul gives its user the Kagayaki armor which gives them powers of light.
- The CosmoSoul takes this a step further as it gives its user the Cosmo Armor which basically is a combination of the Kurayami and Kagayaki armor and thus gives them powers over both light and darkness.
- The DoshinSoul gives its user the Doshin Armor which gives them powers over earth.
- Experienced Protagonist: All of them has had over a century of training to master their powers and abilities before the first episode of the series.
- Fish out of Temporal Water: The original three Ryusoulgers are this, mostly as a result of having been born literally over 200 years ago in isolation. Towa and Bamba are more adjusted to the modern world as they've been out and about in it.
- Knight in Shining Armor: All of them.
- Only One Name: None of them have a known surname although this could be because their tribe is composed of long lived beings living in isolation.
- Really 700 Years Old: All the Ryusoulgers are more than 100 years old. Koh, Melto and Asuna are 209 years old but they all look like they are in their late teens or early twenties.
- Master Swordsman: All the Ryusoulgers have had centuries of practice with their swords. However, it should be noted that of the five members, Koh, Towa and Bamba seem to excel more in swordsmanship. Especially Bamba.
- Soul Power: This team's Motif when it comes to the source of their strength.
Koh / RyusoulRed
Portrayed by: Hayate Ichinose (live), Shigeki Ito (suit)
The Leader of the Ryusoulgers and a fighting genius who is bright, Hot-Blooded, and fearless, yet somewhat naive. He leads the team through even the worst odds. Partnered with Tyramigo the Tyrannosaurus rex.
- Break the Cutie: He spends a good deal of his early screen time in the first episode being an energetic, kind-hearted hero. Then Tankjoh kills his master right in front of him.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character:
- Is just as youthful as Kairi Yano, but is far less moody and cold than his predecessor ever was, being more than cheerful and open hearted.
- From the same series, Koh is equally as Hot-Blooded as Keiichiro Asaka about upholding order and protecting innocents, but lacks the professional yet uptight ways the latter had in his series.
- Deliberate Injury Gambit: He once lets the Cerberus Minusaur bite his exposed arm so he'd have a clear shot at breaking off one of its fangs to make an antidote for its venom.
- Determinator: By his own words "Limits were made to be broken!"
- Finishing Move: Dino Slash (Tyramigo version).
- The Gadfly: Koh likes to playfully tease Asuna for having so much brute strength, which annoys her.
- Hot-Blooded: In battle, Koh is a fearless and aggressive fighter, with a fighting style that focuses on overwhelming offense. It's no wonder the TsuyoSoul is his choice Ryusoul; it gives all the power he needs to go along with his ferocity.
- It turns out this was a serious problem in his youth as shown in episode 26 where he let his ferocity get the best of him.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Melto's blue.
- The Heart: He is very emphatic and understanding, and always tries to keeps his team to open up to each other.
- Idiot Hero: The first Red in a while to be this; he's definitely got more Ryouga and King than Geki although this is rather downplayed as shown below in Smarter Than You Look.
- Law of Chromatic Superiority: Not only does he get the first power-up armor, he's assigned their first auxiliary mech, the Dimevolcano, and gets to drive the resulting Tyramigo-Dimevolcano combination by himself, in situations where Kishiryuoh Five Knights (operated by all five Ryusoulgers) doesn't quite cut it. Later he gets to be the first to use the combined ShineRaptor-ShadowRaptor powerup armor and Kishiryuoh combined form despite Canalo discovering them first.
- The Leader: Of the Ryusoulgers, due to the death of his Master.
- The Nicknamer: He's the one who gave Tyramigo his name.
- Nice Guy: Just like his Dino predecessors Koh is outgoing and gentle, to everyone he interacts with.
- Playing with Fire: Can be equipped with the MeraMera (Burning) Armour that harnesses DimeVolcano's power.
- Smarter Than You Look: Although he also sometimes acts as an idiot, don't forget he's still a trained Ryusoulger with just as much training as his fellow Ryusoulgers which makes him just as capable as them.
Melto / RyusoulBlue
Portrayed by: Keito Tsuna (live), Masashi Takada (suit)
A young man with an outstanding Photographic Memory who is rarely unprepared. He would always think things twice before acting, though he falls short when compared to Koh, who he's jealous of, and Asuna. Partnered with Triken the Triceratops.
- Butt-Monkey: He's frequently pushed around by Asuna. Tyramigo messes with him a couple of times. And now he's even drawn Canalo's ire because of Oto. Not surprisingly, the spicy takoyaki incident proves that not even the luck of the draw is with him.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character:
- Genius Bruiser: Is very clearly the smartest when it comes to critical and tactical thinking while being just as capable in combat as his teammates.
- Nice Guy
- Photographic Memory: He can remember everything he's seen. Judging from the look on his face after Master Blue sacrifices himself to save him, he's not terribly happy he'll remember that perfectly too.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Koh's red.
- The Smart Guy: Comes with the Photographic Memory letting him retain information better. He uses this to great effect while creating strategies to outwit the Druidon in and out of battle.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Melt or Melto? This was finally put to rest when the Bandai Fashion site used the latter in advertising◊.
- Strong Girl, Smart Guy: Melto is the brainy Smart Guy to Asuna's Strong Girl.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: He becomes confused when Triken is sulky around him during their first encounter due to the Kishiryu having been created by his people as the partner of the Ryusoul Blue powers he wields. He'd be right in must other Sentai, but much like Ryusoulger's most recent thematic predecessors, Triken and the rest of the Kishiryu are Empathic Weapons that don't like being talked down to.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He has light blue hair. To the point he also straighten his hair out before battle and Oto once pulled his hair when she thought it was a wig signifying that this is his natural hair.
Asuna / RyusoulPink
Portrayed by: Ichika Osaki (live) Ayumi Shimozono (suit)
A noble who is incredibly intuitive about things and is prone to say things at the wrong time. Despite being the only girl of the Ryusoulgers, she's actually their muscle and is embarrassed about it. Partnered with Ankyroze the Ankylosaurus.
- Action Girl: It's to be expected from a female member of any Sentai, but Asuna's status as The Big Girl is a rarity.
- Badass Longcoat: She wears a pink trench coat in her civilian form.
- Big Eater: #9 and #10 really illustrate her large appetite; she seems to have a thing for barbecued meat (yakiniku) in particular.
- The Big Girl: Contrary to the previous Pink and female White Rangers, who would usually fill the roles of The Chick, The Heart, or The Leader, Asuna's Super Strength makes her the first Pink Ranger who is the team's muscle.
- Born Lucky: She is shown to have a lot of luck as shown in #10 when she accidentally hit a specific target correctly.
- Character Tic: Getting all huffy and puffy when she's annoyed at something.
- The Chick: By the virtue of being the only female member on the team.
- Combat Stilettos: Though unlike Umika, she only has them in her civilian outfit, not her Ranger suit.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character:
- While Mei, Ranru and Amy use flexibility as part of their fighting style, Asuna prefers raw power instead.
- When compared to Umika Hayami, Asuna is clearly much more straight-laced despite being just as enthusiastic and kindhearted - albeit without any of The Ditz traits the latter showcased in her series.
- In comparison to Tsukasa Myojin, the previous Pink who was the calm Only Sane Man of her group most of the time, Asuna is far less willing to tolerate her teammates' antics - especially when her Berserk Button is pushed.
- Dreadful Musician: Episode 8 reveals that Asuna is a terrible singer that it is used as a strategy to distract and weaken the Cockatrice Minusaur to save Fita from dying inside the Minusaur.
- Girly Bruiser: Despite being The Big Girl, she's still got the usual bubbly Pink personality.
- Muscle Angst: She doesn't appreciate people saying she has "brute strength". Poor Koh learned that the hard way.
- The Smurfette Principle: With the death of Master Pink, she's the only female Ryusoulger.
- Strong Girl, Smart Guy: Asuna is the strong Action Girl to Melto's Smart Guy.
- Super Strength: Being seen as the muscle of the team, with enough strength to send Koh straight into a rock face with a simple shove. Where have we seen something like that before...?
- Thousand-Yard Stare: All she can do after Master Pink sacrifices herself to save her life is stare at the spot where she was before screaming in sorrow.
- Zettai Ryouiki: After three solid teams of Proper Tights with a Skirt, Asuna brings this back with shorts and high boots.
Towa / RyusoulGreen
Portrayed by: Yuito Obara (live), Masato Tsutamune (suit)
The Baby of the Bunch and a talented pacifist who refused to accept losing, especially towards Koh. He has unbelievable speed and a Big Brother Worship towards Banba, but is Willfully Weak when using his talents. Partnered with Tigerlance the "Tigersaurus", a fictional dinosaur heavily resembling a saber-toothed tiger.
- Big Brother Worship: To Bamba.
- Break the Haughty: After taking pride in being the fastest of the Ryusoulgers, Melto shows how he can pin him to a corner in a few steps. And then a straight fight with Wyzeru on his own leads to him getting dominated.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character:
- Cute Little Fangs: Japanese fans notes how the actor who plays Towa shows his quite visibly when he smiles. This also overlaps with Towa's Kishiryu being a saber-toothed tiger.
- Creepy Child: The youngest Ryusoulger, and disturbingly comfortable with defeating the Minusaurs by killing their human hosts. However, once he notices the other Ryusoulgers have their Dinoknights, he spares Ui.
- Finishing Move: Dino Slash (TigerLance version)
- On top of this, in #4, he figures out how to awaken his Dinoknight mid battle with the Kraken Minusaur and actively stops Bamba from killing its host.
- He's completely out of this mindset by #5 after Koh convinces him that all lives are equal, even trying to convince Bamba to not kill his new friend Sanae despite the Minusaur that came from her having poisoned him.
- The Heart: Towa cares about his brother, and after #4 he's learned to open up enough to make friends with a civilian. By the time Canalo joins up, Towa's been seen working with the Ryusoulger starting lineup a lot more than Bamba.
- Lightning Bruiser: Makes good use of the HayaSoul in combat. Not surprisingly, this translates over to KishiryuOh Tigerlance's fighting style.
- Locked Out of the Loop: Despite working with Bamba for the longest time, he's clearly being kept in the dark about several things - people that Bamba personally knows is one thing, but the true nature of Gaisoulg is a pretty major one.
- Martial Pacifist: He claims to be very pacifist compared to his fellow Ryusoulgers, but is also a competent fighter in his own rights.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Bamba's blue.
- Shoot the Dog: His method of stopping the Minusaurs? Killing the human hosts to prevent them gaining power. He eventually understands from Koh that all lives are worth saving, and tries to convince Bamba as well.
- Sore Loser: He doesn't take losing in a talent competition very well, especially towards Koh.
- Willfully Weak: Is incredibly talented, but prefers to hold back for some reason.
Bamba / RyusoulBlack
Portrayed by: Tatsuya Kishida (live), Yasuhiro Takeuchi (suit)
The Lancer of the Ryusoulgers, known for easily dispatching any enemy with his expert fighting skills. He has a genuine desire to protect the Earth and fights the Druidon Tribe to prove his strength. He's hostile to anyone, but has a soft spot for Towa, which he doesn't want to show. Partnered with Mirneedle the "Needlesaurus", a fictional dinosaur heavily resembling a Miragaia longicollum.
- Aloof Ally: Even after the supposed solidifying of the core five, he's seen around the three lead Ryusoulgers a lot less than Towa. Though this is justified on several occasions by his investigations, and sometimes Contrived Coincidence.
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: He honestly thought he could take on Tankjoh solo. To his credit, he did better than any of the other Ryusoulgers in that he was still standing when Tankjoh left.
- Big Brother Instinct: Gets freaked out when Towa's in danger.
- The Comically Serious: Bamba always tries to distant himself from his teammates childish antics, and expresses his annoyance in a deadpan manner.
- Finishing Move: Dino Slash (MilNeedle version)
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's hostile to anyone (his teammates included), but he's dedicated to protect the Earth and fight the Druidon Tribe while being an Aloof and Cool Big Brother to Towa. Just don't expect him to act nice.
- The Lancer: He is basically a foil to Koh in every aspect.
- Mighty Glacier: Relies on the KataSoul in combat, limiting his movements while granting No-Sell-level resilience. KishiryuOh Mirneedle's fighting style actually incorporates elements of sumo wrestling.
- Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Towa's red.
- The Stoic: He always maintains a serious and a no-nonsense attitude.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He is the tallest member of the team, and displays a aloof and a no-nonsense attitude most of the time.
- Tsundere: "Deredere" to Towa and "Tsuntsun" to everyone else.
Canalo / RyusoulGold
Portrayed by: Katsumi Hyodo (live), Kazuya Okada (suit)
The Sixth Ranger and a Sea Ryusoul Tribesman who came to the surface in search for an ideal wife. Despite living in an upper-crust lifestyle and having worries over his younger sister, he's actually disliked by his peers due to his snobbish, penny-pinching, and Perfectionist attitude. Partnered with, and mentored by, MosaRex the Mosasaurus.
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: He sees himself as stronger than the rest of the team.
- Berserk Button: Making a woman cry is one to him and the reason he fights against Minusaurs.
- Big Brother Instinct: He is very protective of Oto, forbidding her to accompany him to the surface.
- Casanova Wannabe: He keeps running into women he wants to marry. All of them are ether already married or have boyfriends.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character:
- Unlike his Dino Sixth Ranger predecessors, Canalo started out as a heroic character (though he's more of an Anti-Hero due to his Jerkass attitude).
- And unlike Utchy, who is an Adorkable Samurai with a weakness for women, Canalo is a Jerk with a Heart of Gold who is actively looking for an ideal wife.
- Is just as smug and self-assured as Noel Takao, but lacks the easy-going and affable nature of the latter, being far more uptight and down-looking on others. This is most evident in their respective debuts: while Noel actively went out of his way to meet and associate himself with his fellow cops and thieves, Canalo flat out tells the other Ryusoulgers that he wants nothing to do with them, twice over. Also while Noel had to prove his trust to both teams, the Ryusoulgers need to prove their trust to Canalo and MosaRex because of the rift between their tribes.
- Defrosting Ice King: He seems to bond a bit with Koh in #16 which is shown through them slightly reject each other through the Minusaur's power.
- Establishing Character Moment: In his first appearance, he tries to give a rose to the girl he was dating, only to get dumped by her for being obsessive. He then hits it off with another girl nearby with similar interests as him, and destroys a Minusaur for interrupting their meeting.
- Finishing Move: Final Thunder Shot (BiriBiriSoul).
- The Friend Nobody Likes: Nobody in the Sea Ryusoul Tribe likes him due to his penny-pinching Jerkass attitude.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his snobbish attitude towards the Ryusoulgers and being obsessed with finding a bride, at least he cares for Oto and is honorable enough to back off when his advances are refused.
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Canalo uses a gun and knife combo, is aligned to the sea, and his master is a Kishiryu.
- Leitmotif: Technically he has just the one, first heard as a mariachi trumpet solo that gets played in full in episode 24, but there's also an 80s-style shojo drama theme indicating romantic moments (before it's cut off...)
- My Master, Right or Wrong: The biggest reason he doesn't team up with the other Ryusoulgers is because his master MosaRex doesn't trust the land Ryusoul tribe. He actually doesn't see them as bad people.
- Mythology Gag: His Promotion to Parent would make AbaRed and KyoryuBlue proud.
- Not So Different: An Aloof Ally with some disdain for the main team and a younger sibling who may be the crux to him coming around - he's basically Bamba all over again.
- Running Gag: His failures at finding a bride.
- Shock and Awe: His BiriBiri Soul grants him electricity powers.
- Sixth Ranger: And the first one in a Dino Sentai who is not introduced as a villainous or possessed Ranger.
- Telepathy: He is able to communicate telepathically via contact with water.
Master Red, Master Blue, and Master Pink
Portrayed by: Masaya Kawada (Master Red), Jouji Shibue (Master Blue), and Miyuu Sawai (Master Pink)
- Back from the Dead: Master Pink was brought back from the dead due to the Necromancer Minusaur's powers.
- Badass Longcoat: All three of them.
- Brought Down to Badass: They can still transform into Ryusoulgers even without the Ryusoul Swords. However, they're limited to just their prior skills and generic swords as opposed to the variety of powers the Ryusoul Swords could grant them.
- Death by Origin Story: All of them are dead by the end of the first episode.
- Family-Unfriendly Death: Blue and Pink are incinerated into nothing by a giant Minusaur's fire breath.
- Heroic Sacrifice: All of them die saving their pupils.
- Mentor Occupational Hazard: They die not long after passing the full Ryusoulger powers down to their students in order to highlight just how much more dangerous the Druidons have become.
- No Body Left Behind: When Blue and Pink save Melto and Asuna they're reduced to nothing in a matter of seconds by the Minusaur's fire breath. There's not even ashes left to bury, just a trail of molten rock.
- No Name Given: They're simply known by their title of Master and their Ryusoulger color. Given they die in a single episode, it's probably best we didn't know their names.
- Not Too Dead to Save the Day: Red's body dissolves into energy and flows into Koh's Ryusoul allowing him to transform even though the temple was destroyed, in addition to save Koh from Tankjoh trying to finish the job. It's later shown that Pink and Blue did the same for Asuna and Melto offscreen.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Red dies halfway through the first episode, and Blue and Pink follow shortly.
Elder of the Ryusoul Tribe
Elder of the Ryusoul Tribe
Portrayed by: Jiro Dan (live)
- Broken Pedestal: Played for Laughs. Koh and Melto find their wise and noble Elder working in a kebab truck so dissonant from their memory of him that they refuse to let Asuna meet him and instead tell her to remember him as he was.
- Impoverished Patrician: Being the elder of a Hidden Elf Village isn't good for much when it gets destroyed. As of his second appearance he's running a Kebab truck and acting as a support to the Ryusoulgers.
- No Name Given: Just like the Masters his name is unknown.
- Really 700 Years Old: Considering the fact Koh, Melto and Asuna are 209 years old while looking like young adults, it's implied that the elder is even old by the standards by their people.
- Wizards and Witches: He utilizes magic to provide for the Ryusoulgers, though due to his current humble living situation he has to use cheap modern appliances. For example, he makes an antidote to a deadly poison by transfiguring a fang into broth in a coffee pot and serves it to them in paper cups.
Portrayed by: Mana Kinjo (live)
A Youtuber who, during an attempt to make a fake Amazon video, accidentally found out about the village of the Ryusoulgers. After losing their village she lets them stay at her house.
- Action Survivor: She gets close enough to the monsters to suffer a nasty *Drool* Hello, and makes it away in one piece.
- Butt-Monkey: In one of the Henshin Lessons videos, Koh totally misses her being kidnapped by Mooks. Not put in a cell or held hostage, but flung around by her arms and legs like a skipping rope.
- Catchphrase: Apparently she uses "Ui Joke!" in her videos for every Incredibly Lame Pun.
- Driven to Suicide: Once she discovers that the Medusa Minusaur is spawning from her, she tries to kill it by jumping off of a cliff. Thankfully Asuna stops her.
- Friendless Background: The second episode states that she only brought a friend home to visit once before, and that was in middle school. The episode after that suggests that it's a kind of Freudian Excuse, and she makes web videos as a way to get attention. This is also how Ui became the host of the Medusa Minusaur.
- Genki Girl: She is hyperactive and energetic as a Youtuber.
- Impossibly Tacky Clothes: She dresses like a hippie clown.
- Missing Mom: Her mother fell ill and died when she was a child.
- Plucky Comic Relief: Another requirement of Super Sentai supporting characters.
- Stylistic Suck: Her Youtube videos are so terrible that watching a few seconds of one leaves Koh petrified with boredom.
- Trademark Favourite Food: Bananas.
Portrayed by: Mitsuru Fukikoshi (live)
The father of Ui and a archaeologist who investigated the Kishiryu in order to search for new dinosaur species.
- Adventure Archaeologist: He's implied to have been a rather mild variation in his youth as he's in possession of a map leading to the locations of the Kishiryu. This is how he came to be possessed by Seto.
- Cool Old Guy: He helps the Ryusoulgers as best as he can despite his old age.
- Good Parents: He's supportive of Ui's eccentricities, perhaps relating since he's a bit scatterbrained himself.
- Hidden Depths: It's implied he knows more about the Kishiryu than he lets on. That's because Seto's been speaking through him - for his part he seems to be unaware of Seto's existence.
- Team Dad: To the Ryusoulgers and Ui, the latter of which he's her actual dad.
- Unfazed Everyman:
- He doesn't even bat an eyelid at seeing his dead wife alive and well.
- He also has no idea how he ends up in Seto's outfit at completely random times (and it's been happening a lot), but never spends much time dwelling on it.
Portrayed by: Sora Tamaki (live)The younger sister of Canalo and a Sea Ryusoul Tribeswoman who went to the surface to search for a husband.
- Meaningful Name: From "imouto" meaning younger sister.
- The Nose Knows: Her sense of smell can put sharks to shame, considering how she can find the core Ryusoulgers despite having been on land way less than Canalo.
- Older Than They Look: Much like the other Ryusoul Tribe members, Oto is over 100 years old, specifically 123 years old. Her actress on the other hand, is 13. For all intents and purposes though, she's still a child and is treated as such by the Ryusoulgers.
- Precocious Crush. On Melto of all people. Not surprisingly, Canalo is firmly opposed. The fact that there's an 85 year age gap between them means both that Canalo is very justified in this, and that Melto likely will not reciprocate.
- Single Woman Seeks Good Man: Like her brother, one of her purposes coming to land was to look for a husband to continue the Sea Ryusoul Tribe's bloodline with. She currently sees her good man in Melto.
Portrayed by: Mitsuru Fukikoshi (live)The spirit of a Ryusoul Tribe member who possesses Naohisa Tatsui's body.
Portrayed by: Seiya Osada (live)A Ryusoul Tribesman who was a former apprentice of Master Red, but ultimately was not chosen to be the next RyusoulRed over Koh.

Portrayed by: Masaki Terasoma (voice)
The partner of Koh. He forms the main body of all the KishiRyuuOh formations. His RyuSoul forms the head of KishiRyuuOh, Three Knights and Five Knights.
- Accidental Misnaming: Maybe. Once he learns to speak, he gets Koh and Asuna's names down easy but keeps referring to Melto as "Salt" even after it's spelled out phonetically to him. It's not clear if he really doesn't get it or if he's just screwing with Melto. It's all but stated to be the latter in episode 19.
- All Animals Are Dogs: Episode 12 has Tyramigo biting Melt's leg for attention, which is something puppies are known for.
- All Your Powers Combined: KishiRyuuOh Five Knights is the combination between all five main Kishiryu and as a result has all their specialties combined.
- Friend to All Children: Seen as early as episode 2. True enough, the Minusaur targeting children in episode 19 proves to be his only Berserk Button.
- Pokémon Speak: "Tyra!" Later he expands his vocabulary by watching TV, upgrading to You No Take Candle level and eventually complete fluency in Japanese, with this becoming a Verbal Tic.
- Robot Buddy: He acts as this more than the other Kishiryu due to Koh using the ChiisaSoul to shrink him down to the point where he's just a little bit taller than a person.
- Smarter Than You Look: As noted above, he taught himself rudimentary Japanese, a language that is considered incredibly difficult to learn, by watching TV. By episode 19, Tyramigo has become fluent in Japanese to the point of speaking in full sentences, and has been making friends among civilians without incident.
- Transforming Mecha: While it may seem like it's already able to transform into KisihRyuuOh by himself, it's actually subverted since its RyuSoul forms the head which technically makes even the regular KishiRyuuOh a Combining Mecha instead.
- Weak, but Skilled: When it forms KishRyuuOh by himself he lacks the weaponry the other KishiRyuuOh have, but makes up for it with it's Joint Change ability which gives it a level of flexibility.
- Weaksauce Weakness: He gets briefly buried in sand in episode 17, leading to KishiRyuuOh having problems moving around due to sand in the joints. Being biomechanical sometimes sucks.
The partner of Melto/RyusoulBlue. Its RyuSoul forms the head of KishiRyuuOh Triken.
- Cool Sword: Knight Sword (though it's placed like a Gag Nose normally).
- Weak, but Skilled: As KishiRyuuOh Triken its arsenal is the same as Three Knights except that it specializes even more in swordsmanship.
The partner of Asuna/RyusoulPink. Its RyuSoul forms the head of KishiRyuuOh Ankyloze.
- Drop the Hammer: Knight Hammer which also becomes the weapon of KishiRyuuOh Ankyloze.
- Mighty Glacier: KishiRyuuOh Ankyloze specializes more in strength compared to Three Knights.
The partner of Towa/RyusoulGreen. Its RyuSoul forms the head of KishiRyuuOh TigerLance
- Lightning Bruiser: KishiRyuuOh TigerLance specializes in immense speed & swordsmanship skills.
- Jousting Lance: Knight Lance which also forms the weapon of KishiRyuuOh TigerLance and Five Knights.
- Panthera Awesome: Albeit a biomechanical and reptilian one.
The partner of Bamba/RyusoulBlack. Its RyuSoul forms the head of KishiRyuuOh MilNeedle.
- BFG: His tail doubles up as a cannon.
- Mighty Glacier: KishiRyuuOh MilNeedle specializes in raw strength and has the fighting style of a sumo wrestler. It wields the dual Knight Mace as brutal melee weapons.
- Needle Attack: Knight Needle.
Portrayed by: Wataru Takagi (voice)
A Kishiryu sealed by the Ryusoul tribe for his immense power. To get his trust you must answer his quiz honestly. His RyuSoul forms the head of KishiRyuOh DimeVolcano and grants it's user the power of the MeraMera armor which gives them power of fire.
- Catchphrase: "I ask you this!"note
- Dinosaurs Are Dragons: The first fire-breathing Kishiryu.
- Playing with Fire: He possesses fire-based attacks.
- Pokémon Speak: "Dime!". However, unlike Tyramigo, he is capable of speaking fluently in Japanese, even making full sentences.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: He is of the fire element, while MosaRex is of water.
- Smarter Than You Look: His whole shtick about giving riddles is a Secret Test of Character.
Portrayed by: Ryota Takeuchi (voice)
The partner and master of Canalo/RyusoulGold. His RyuSoul forms the head of KishiRyuNeptune which is composed of him and the AmmoKnuckles who also support him in combat. He holds a grudge against the land Ryusoul tribe for trying to conquer the Earth 15 millions of years ago and is the reason why Canalo initially doesn't team up with the other Ryusoulgers.
- Attack Drone: He suffers from Kibbles and Bits - a pair of Kishiryu ammonites that assist him in battle and form the arms of Kishiryu Neptune.
- Combining Mecha: Episode 17 sees the debut of SpinoThunder, formed with both DimeVolcano and MosaRex.
- Feuding Families: He doesn't trust the land Ryusoul tribe for trying to conquer the Earth after the Druidon's fled, because of the meteor. He later backs off a bit since the modern Ryusoulgers don't seem to be evil, but still watches them in case they are just as bad as the land Ryusoul tribe he remembers 65 million years ago.
- Making a Splash: He possesses water-based attacks.
- Pokémon Speak: '"Mosa!"''. Like DimeVolcano, he is also able to converse in full sentences.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: With DimeVolcano, their respective elements contrasting one another.
- Smarter Than You Look: In episode 17 it becomes the first mecha to pull a Not Brainwashed gambit.
Shine and Shadow Raptors /CosmoRaptor
ShineRaptor portrayed by: ??? (voice)
ShadowRaptor portrayed by: ??? (voice)
A pair of Kishiryu created from cosmic energy: Shine consumed light while Shadow consumed darkness to gain their powers. They were kidnapped by the Druidons and brought into space with them when they fled Earth 65 million years ago. Shadow managed to return to Earth first, causing distortions on Earth before summoning its sister Shine.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: With each other. Shine is white and represents light, while Shadow is black and represents darkness.
- Interdimensional Travel Device: Their combined power as CosmoRaptor, allowing them and the Ryusoulgers to physically travel to virtually ANY dimension, from the world of the dead to even the internet.
- Unrealistic Black Hole: Shadow's ability, and the ability he grants to his Ryusoul's user, allows them to fire black holes that suck in and destroy just its targets, and nothing else.
- World-Healing Wave: Shine's ability, which allows her to easily repair the destruction that happened to the city. As Shadow's black hole ability is also granted to its Ryusoul's user, it's likely that anyone who use Shine's Ryusoul is also granted this healing ability.
Pachygaroo and Chibigaroo
Pachygaroo portrayed by: ??? (voice)
Chibigaroo portrayed by: M.A.O (voice)
- Big Bad: Whoever their leader is.
- Chess Motif: Many of the Druidon members are themed around chess pieces, with the motif illustrated not just in their overall design, but also in chessboard belt buckles that illustrate the moves of their respective pieces.
- Pawns: Drunn Soldiers
- Black Rook: Tankjoh
- White Rook: Gachireus
- Black Bishop: Wizeru
- Contrasting Sequel Antagonist:
- The Druidons don't have the same comedic value as the previous Dino Sentai villains, making them more competent and threatening from the very beginning.
- The Druidons are more unified in their cause when compared to the more scattered and competitive Ganglers.
- Knight of Cerebus: Anyone who is not Kreon or Wizeru is considered as Serious Business.
- Mooks: Drunn Soldiers, who are based on Spanish Conquistadors.
- Meaningful Name: Not the monsters themselves, but rather, their "place of distribution."
- Complete Minusaur: Village of Illusions; The Ryusoulger's home, and the first pace the Tribe would like to be rid of for the sake of conquest.
- Unicorn Minusaur: Summit of the Swordsmen; Refers to Unicorn's swordsman skills and Takanori's rival was there, and as he was the source of Takanori's stress...
- Medusa Minusaur: Petrified Town; Refers to her ability to turn people to stone.
- Kraken Minusaur: The Spring of Sleep; Refers to his ability to put people to sleep with his water guns.
- Cerberus Minusaur: Poisoned Watering Place; Refers to his infectious poison as well as the plan to use said poison to infect a water plant.
- Tankjoh: Shaking Earth; Refers to Tankjoh's ability to absorb the seismic energy of earthquakes and power up.
- Cockatrice Minusaur: Exhilarating Amusement Park; Refers to the amusement park where the Minusaur first attacked, as well as its sound abilities.
- Mimic Minusaur: Greed Labyrinth; Refers to the place it traps humans in, a place that grants them their desires, at the price of their lifeforce.
- Troll Minusaur: Trick Factory; Refers to where it was fought, as well as its fake weakpoint and Attack Reflector ability.
- Shen Minusaur: Tower of Fog; Refers to its ability to create illusions from its fog.
- Mummy Minusaur: Real Room; Refers to its ability to cause people to tell the truth. The "Room" part likely refers to her old, dying lover within the hopistal.
- Basilisk Minusaur: Park of Encounter; Refers to what literally is its only scene in the episode before it gets easily destroyed.
- Kelpie Minusaur: Rain Mine; Refers to its entire power gimmick being hydrokinesis, as well as the quarry where its final fight takes place.
- Pan Minusaur: Farewell Port; Refers to what caused its host's negative emotion, and the port where it shows up, as well as its magnetism abilities.
- Gachireus: Deep Sea of Serious Match; Refers to the final battle between Gachireus and the heroes, but also referrers to Gachireus's No-Nonsense Nemesis personality.
- Ghost Ship Minusaur: Miitama Beach; Oddly, it's literally just the real name (in-universe) of the location it appeared in, as it's where the seashells the host wants is located.
- Golem Minusaur: Wish Stone Shrine; Refers to what object it was made of, and where the object is. Just like Ghost Ship Minusaur, the name is oddly not unique, but more literal.
- Arachne Minusaur: School of Rules; Refers to the location it appeared in, as well as its host's insistence on following the rules.
- Grimoire Minusaur: Supreme Atelier; The "supreme" part likely refers to Wizeru himself, whose personality is all about thinking that he's the greatest, while the "atelier" part refers to a work studio, in this case a painter's studio.
- Necromancer Minusaur: The World of Hades; Refers to the dimension of the dead that it can access with its power.
- Dwarf Minusaur: Training Road; Refers to the martial arts training in a dojo. "Road" could be a reference to travel, as the host wants to leave the dojo and travel abroad.
- Grim Reaper Minusaur: Internet World; Another literal reference, this time to where it can only operate.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: The minute they arrive on Earth, the Druidon head straight for the temple that's the source of the Ryusoul Tribe's powers and successfully invade and wreck it, stripping their only meaningful opposition of most of their powers before they even know what's going on. It's only the Masters passing on their power to their students and the awakening of the Kishiryu underneath the temple that leaves them with a fighting chance. Even after the first episode this trait still remains in how they utilize Minusaurs: have one with extremely poisonous fangs? Drip it into the local water supply! Need more negative emotions to make them grow? Cause more stress to the host by using their weakness or go the easy way and just beat them up!
- Took a Level in Badass: They spent a whopping sixty-five million years fighting off hostile environments before resuming their attempted conquest on Earth.
Portrayed by: Joji Nakata (voice)
A merciless black rook-themed Druidon general.
- Arc Villain: Of the first six episodes, though he is later resurrected.
- Back from the Dead: He is later resurrected thanks to the Necromancer Minusaur's powers.
- BFG: The cannon on his chest, which he loads by tapping into the power of earthquakes. Just one shot is enough to knock all five Ryusoulgers out of morph and leaves them barely able to stand.
- BFS: Tankjoh wields a greatsword in the shape of a rook piece.
- The Brute: A high-ranking Druidon officer who is also their muscle.
- Chest Blaster: His Castlingrander cannon, which he can fire energy blasts or jet of flames after inserting round shots in the openings on the back of each shoulder.
- Hero Killer: In his first appearance, Tankjoh manages to successfully kill one of the Ryusoulgers. It would have been two kills if not for Master Red's Heroic Sacrifice giving Koh the ability to fight back.
- Killed Off for Real:
- The first to be killed off by KishiryuOh Five Knights. To his credit though, he survived being beaten by one of the KishiryuOh combinations before and it took all five core Dinoknights together to finally bring him down.
- After being resurrected by the Necromancer Minusaur, it now takes the combined power of five Ryusoulgers to finish him off.
- Made of Iron: It takes two finishers from KishiRyuOh Five Knights, the strongest combination yet, to kill him.
- Meaningful Name: His name is a combination for the English word for "Tank" and the Go-onyomi for "Castle" (Jō), hence his appearance being based on these two objects.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: To simply put it, this guy does not mess around when it comes to wanting to take out his enemies.
- Not So Above It All: As Tankjoh laughing evilly over using seismic energy to conquer the Earth once the Ryusoulgers die of the latest Minusaur's poison, Kreon laughs along with him. Tankjoh then forbids Kreon from laughing and continues his own laugh off-screen.
- Tankjoh (to Kreon): You don't get to laugh.
- Starter Villain: He is the Ryusoulgers' first major opponent.
- Taking You with Me: He tries, as killing him would release all of his earthquake energy and absolutely demolish everything within a huge radius of him. However, the Ryusoulgers just use Inflate Soul to make him light enough to shoot into space so his released energy detonates harmlessly.
Portrayed by: Hikaru Midorikawa (voice)
An egotistical black bishop/sorcerer-themed Druidon general. Following Tankjoh's first death, he takes over the Druidons' assault on Earth.
- Arc Villain: The second Druidon general to appear after Tankjoh's death.
- Attention Whore: He loses it when Koh transforms and does his introduction because he hates sharing the spotlight, accusing him of "copying [his] act!"
- Benevolent Boss: Relative to Tankjoh and Gachireus, Wizeru is nothing but friendly and supportive to Kreon, making him Kreon's favorite general to deal with. In episode 22, he even comforts and offers his handkerchief to Kreon when he sees them crying over Tankjoh's final death.
- Berserk Button: It doesn't matter if he's just imagining it due to his enormous ego or if he's actually being ripped off, he hates if anyone copies his act in any way due to his Attention Whore nature. Doing so intentionally or otherwise is the easiest way to set him off.
- Beware the Silly Ones: Wizeru is profoundly goofy, describing himself as the "absolute greatest entertainer of all" before patting himself on the back for nailing his flashy introduction. He's also the next highest up on the Druidon totem pole after Tankjoh, outlives the much more straightforwardly competent Gachireus, and comes the closest of anyone to actually defeating the Ryusoulgers completely on multiple occasions.
- Catchphrase: "It's showtime!"
- Card-Carrying Villain: When accused of being a coward, he responds with "flattery will get you nowhere."
- Dirty Coward: He is perfectly willing to brainwash children into thinking he's a good guy so they'll act as his living shields. He is also not above using his Drunn Soldiers as living shields during combat. This actually works in his favor considering the fact he lives far longer than either Tankjoh and Gachireus since unlike them he knows not to act too recklessly or fight against the Ryusoulgers personally.
- The Evil Genius: He is the brains of the Druidon Tribe.
- Evil Sorcerer: His design resembles a stage magician and utilizes magic to fight.
- Failed a Spot Check: He would have gotten away with stealing the KanaeSoul while disguised as Oto, if it were not for the fact that the real Oto had recently changed her way of addressing Melto and Wizeru was unaware of it.note
- Faux Affably Evil: For all his goofy mannerisms, Wizeru is scum of the lowest variety. He is not even above impersonating a Victim of the Week's friend just to make said victim's suicidal impulses worse.
- Graceful Loser: Surprising considering the other tropes related to him, but his reaction to the Cockatrice Minusaur he put so much work into being destroyed is simply to channel his anger into a little jig and then privately commend the Ryusoulgers on a well played move, remarking that their clashes are going to make a devil of a show.
- The Heavy: Wizeru is the only Druidon general who has more screentime than the others.
- Kick the Dog: Considering how much this trope is his bread and butter it's more like Punt the Dog.
- Large Ham: He chews it hard when first introducing himself to Koh.
- Literal-Minded: When asked by the Ryusoulgers to repeat himself when he uses "Showrtime" in a boast out of disbelief that he actually said it, he proceeds to oblige by repeating the entire boast, mid-sentence twirl and all.
- Master of Illusion: One of his most dastardly moves, impersonating someone close to the Victim of the Week, just to get near enough to Kick the Dog.
- Nice Hat: The obviously top-hat-based design on his head helps to sell his flamboyant image.
- No Sense of Personal Space: He's been able to get really close to his mark, or our heroes, or even Kreon at times, to the extent that it's less a part of his MO and more of a fetish.
- Perfectly Cromulent Word: "Showrtime Work", a combination of "Showtime" and "Short Work"note Naturally he gets set off when Towa steals the word to mock him, while Kureon mockingly uses the phrase whenever he is not around.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: The only real reason Gachireus becomes the Arc Villain is because Wizeru hates the bastard too much to deal with him.
- Squishy Wizard: While he can handle one or two of the Ryusoulgers in a straight fight, he knows better than to make the first move without some kind of backup plan since he lacks Kreon's Healing Factor or any defensive advantage.
- Surprisingly Good English: His syntax can be a bit odd, but his Gratuitous English is barely accented at all.
- Villainous Crossdresser: He really seems to prefer women for his human disguises.
Portrayed by: Tetsu Inada (voice)
An arrogant white rook/naval captain-based Druidon general.
- Arc Villain: From episodes 14-16, replacing Wizeru despite the latter not being killed off yet. Though his death doesn't stick.
- Bad Boss: He orders Kreon to create 500 Kelpie Minusaurs, which Kreon says is impossible in such a short time. For this task he forces Kreon to fill two buckets with their essence which clearly exhausts and dehydrates them; when Kreon objects, he retorts that if they can complain, they have enough strength to keep working. And this was just in his first appearance. There is a reason why Kreon says that they lose their smile around him, and their times with Tankjoh and Wizeru were heavenly compared to being with him.
- The Dreaded: Judging by his poor treatment of Kreon, he is among the most intimidating Druidon generals.
- King of Thieves: His design resembles a cross between a naval captain and a pirate.
- Insistent Terminology: He did not flee; he made a tactical retreat.
- Light Is Not Good: Despite having a white color scheme, Gachireus stands out as the most arrogant general of the Druidon.
- Mythology Gag: Design-wise, he is an upgrade of Captain Zahab, substituting the pirate ship motif for a modern day battleship.
- No-Nonsense Nemesis: To a whole new extreme! He doesn't waste time on even talking when it doesn't have a reason or dodging when something doesn't damage him. Also after the first Minusaur Kreon sends gets destroyed, he orders Kreon to create a new one and when that Minusaur showed lots of strength, he orders him to create 500 of them.
- Shoulder Cannon: His Gachiraid Cannons, which is capable of firing energy blasts and missiles.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He lasted the shortest out of any Druidon generals, appearing in three episodes before being destroyed by KishiRyuNeptune. Subverted, as it's revealed in episode 27 that his soul retreated to space after his body was destroyed, allowing him to reform.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Gets smug in episode 16 and declares he no longer needs Kreon around, before obliterating them. Fortunately Kreon can walk away from that...
Portrayed by: Ryoko Shiraishi (voice)
A laid-back member of the Druidon Tribe with a mushroom-shaped head and a body made of slime.
- Alas, Poor Villain: They get so horribly mistreated and overworked by Gachireus they collapse out of exhaustion while missing the old days of being under Tankjoh and Wizeru, as their mistreatment was not as bad.
- Ambiguous Gender: Appropriately for a mushroom, Kreon has no decisively male or female traits, including having a voice actress well-known for playing young boys and effeminate male characters. Even head writer Junpei Yamaoka is deliberately evasive on the matter, simply saying "Kreon is cute!" when pressed. That said, Kreon seems to identify themselves as male, judging by their masculine speech pattern and their flirting with Ui and Oto. Then again, it's Kreon.
- Ambiguously Evil: Despite working for the Druidon and being the creator of the Minosaurs, they seem to care more for having fun and being recognised for their efforts than actually doing evil deeds. It is to the point where they do not mind befriending humans, actually show concern when they accidentally turn a friend into a Minosaur host, and would even call off their plans whenever their superiors over-abuse them for evil.
- Bizarre Alien Reproduction: Kreon creates Minusaurs by dripping green slime onto the human to be used as its host.
- Butt-Monkey: To the Arc Villain generals, more often than not.
- Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: While Luckyuro was a Harmless Villain who would rather slack off than committing villainy, Kreon is not.
- Creepy Child: If not in age, then definitely in spirit.
- Dirty Coward: When the going gets tough, Kreon generally gets going... in the opposite direction.
- Even Evil Has Standards: They have, on multiple occasions, pulled out of working for their superiors due the latter over-abusing them and their efforts and hurting their feelings, such as one time where they deleted their soul-stealing dance video due to Wizeru over-using it while calling it garbage.
- From a Single Cell: Due to being made of slime, Kreon is capable of reforming whenever they are destroyed, though they still points out that it hurts a lot. That being said, they're wise enough to not test how much punishment they can take, so they take any chance to avoid being destroyed.
- Gratuitous English: He has a tendency to utter English exclamations when excited ("Yes! YES!!").
- Improbable Weapon User: He wields a giant fork.
- Laughably Evil: Goes about doing their horrific deeds as the main Minusaur creator in the most comedic and childish manner they can. Their voice only adds to this status.
- Mook Maker: So far, Kreon is the only Druidon shown to have the ability to create Minusaurs.
- Mushroom Man: Their overall theme, although their name and colors also brings to mind melted crayons.
- Nice Hat: A huge red mushroom cap that somehow complements their overall design.
- Ocular Gushers: He is seen crying a river of slime in episode 22 after Tankjoh's final death.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: More obvious in darker scenes, which show they also glow in the dark.
- Shoot the Medic First: Unfortunately for Kreon, the Ryusoulgers haven't failed to notice they're the ones creating all the Minusaurs, making them a prime target for this.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: Their design incorporates old-fashioned bloomers to better sell the Creepy Child image.
Portrayed by: Tomokazu Seki (voice)
A mysterious purple-armored knight who has been searching for the strongest among the Super Sentai.
- Animated Armor: What Gaisoulg is in Super Sentai Strongest Battle, but in Ryusoulger it's rather ambiguous if this is still the case or if someone is actually using the armor willingly.
- Black Knight: His armor and evil make him this to the Ryusoulgers' Knights In Shining Armor
- Body Surf: Gaisoulg can possess people and force them to fight his opponents with him in control.
- Early-Bird Cameo: He first appears as a major villain of the Super Sentai Strongest Battle mini-series before his involvement in the main Ryusoulger series.
- Evil Counterpart: He is one to the Ryusoulgers.
- Evil Knockoff: Not him specificallynote , but his blade resembles very much a grayed out RyuSoul Sword called the GaiSoul Ken, which also acts as his Transformation Trinket. However the movie shows that Gaisoulg existed 65 million years ago which means it is possible that he is a Psycho Prototype instead.
- Expy: He's very similar to Wolzard, being a sword-and-shield-wielding purple knight that acts as an antagonist towards the Rangers.
- Glory Seeker: Reiko remarks that Gaisoulg has issues letting go of his glory days back in the age of dinosaurs.
- Invisibility: He can turn invisible to sneak around faster as seen in episode 13.
- Knight of Cerebus: Gaisoulg is not only a literal Black Knight, but is also a bigger Serious Business for the Ryusoulgers.
- Knightly Sword and Shield: A given, since he is an animated suit of knightly armor.
- Lone Wolf Boss: He prefers defeating his opponents without anyone's help, not even from the Druidons. Though he is not above helping Wizeru in the gaining control of DimeVolcano or letting the latter know if he finds something interesting for the heck of it.
- Meaningful Name: His name contains "gai", an alternate way to read "armor" (yoroi).
- Purple Is Powerful: As the main villain of the Super Sentai Strongest Battle and a General-class villain in his home series and movie, he is very much this. His ability to Body Surf just makes him more dangerous.
MinusaursThe Monsters of the Week, monsters based on mythical creatures that naturally spawn from negative human emotions. The Druidon Tribe has learned how to forcibly create Minusaurs during their exile, and plan to use them to wipe out humanity.
- All There in the Manual: Their names are never given on the show.
- Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Previous Sentai monsters were created from various organisms or inanimate objects, summoned by supernatural means, or naturally extraterrestrial. The Minusaurs are not only created by using humans as Living Batteries, but they're also near-mindlessly focused on their host's biggest source of stress, making them more akin to Pretty Cure monsters than the typical Sentai fare.
- Genre Throwback: Hard to tell if it's intentional, but their mindless nature brings to mind Sentai monsters of late 80's and early 90's (from Flashman to Jetman), most of whom didn't talk much but were just snarling beasts.
- The Heartless: Naturally-occurring Minusaurs are these to humanity as a whole, being spawned from human negativity. The Druidon Tribe creates them by actively sucking the negative energy out of specific individuals, which gives the Minusaur a driving goal to destroy whatever's stressing out their host.
- It Can Think: Seemingly mindless though Minusaurs are, even early ones possess enough intellect for some level of tactics, such as the Unicorn Minosaur avoiding being hit twice by a stink-based attack by breathing through its mouth after the first time and the Cockatrice Minusaur positioning itself to either make sure the Ryusoulgers can't properly see it or can't attack it for fear of killing civilians.
- Kaiju: Notably, they look a lot more like traditional Kaiju than the object or animal based monsters of recent years. Episode 1's in particular looks more like it belongs in Ultraman than Super Sentai.
- Make My Monster Grow: Uniquely, it happens naturally as they absorb more energy, as opposed to an outside force or something that happens when they're defeated. This also marks the first time since Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters that giant monsters can appear without requiring a fight on the ground beforehand. And on the rare occasion note that they're destroyed at human size, that's it; no giant revival for them.
- Monsters of the Week: The Minusaurs deserve a special mention as the first Sentai monsters in history to be created from humans.
- Personality Powers: Their powers are derived from the host they were born from and the Druidon are aware of this and as a result look for hosts with the right skillset.
Complete/Dragon MinusaurA fully-grown dragon-like Minusaur born from an unknown host, which appears in its complete state due to having completely consumed its host.
- Hero Killer: It kills Master Blue and Master Pink.
- Kaiju: Its appearance and roar bear a resemblance to Godzilla, and it starts out as a giant.
- Starter Villain: The first Minusaur, and a real tone setter for how dangerous they can be.
- Ultimate Form: As its name implies, this is the ultimate form a Minusaur assumes once it has completly consumed its host.
Unicorn MinusaurA Minusaur born from a fencer named Takanori Mishima, based on his desire to defeat his rival and become the top fencer in Japan.
- Cephalothorax: His face is on his chest.
- Implausible Fencing Powers: His power set comes from his human origin's fencing skills turned up to superhuman levels.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Number One!!note
- Super Speed: He is very quick on his feet.
- To Be a Master: His host's desire is to become "number one" in fencing.
- Unicorn: He is themed after a unicorn.
Medusa MinusaurA Minusaur born from Ui Tatsui, based on her desire to be seen and acknowledged by others.
- Attention Whore: She was born from Ui's desire to be acknowledged by others.
- Blinding Bangs: Her snake hair totally covers her eyes - likely because her real eyes are on her chest.
- Medusa: She is themed after Medusa.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Look at me!!note
- Shmuck Bait: Her basic level of speaking constantly tells everyone to look at her, which is a quick way to get Taken for Granite.
Kraken MinusaurA Minusaur born from a father named Tetsuya Shirota, based on his regrets from being unable to spend time off his work to play with his comatose son Yuta.
- Arm Cannon: Its arms are water pistol-style guns that can fire either sleeping bullets or pressurized water bullets.
- Adult Fear: It was born from one of the worst possible ones. The regret of a father who doesn't know if his hospitalized son is going to wake up and feels he didn't spend enough time with him.
- Creepy Child: It gives off the vibe due to its simplistic speech patterns and the comatose boy in the hospital. This was not the case, however. The host is the boy's father.
- Giant Squid: It is themed after a kraken.
- Non-Malicious Monster: Surprisingly enough, it doesn't really have any real desire to hurt people and has to be harshly wrangled around by Kreon and Tankjoh. Its guns don't even kill people, just put them to sleep. This is because instead of a selfish inner desire, the Kraken Minusaur is born from the desire of a doctor whose young son is comatose in the hospital who deeply regrets not playing with his son as much as he feels he should have.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Here, here!/Come, come!note
Cerberus Minusaur BrothersA pair of Minusaurs born from Towa's friend Sanae Hiragi, based on her resentment for people who mistreat and abandon their pets.
- Cerberus: They're themed after the eponymous canine. Fitting for being born from their host's resentment of irresponsible people abandoning their pet puppies in the streets.
- Inertial Impalement: How the younger one dies.
- Make My Monster Grow: Averted in episode 5 by the younger, but played straight in episode 6 by the older.
- Me's a Crowd: It was later revealed that in episode 6, this Minusaur has an older sibling spawned from the same woman.
- Nested Mouths: It has three heads like the traditional Cerberus, except they're inside each other.
- Poisonous Person: Its fangs are laced with deadly venom. Taken Up to Eleven that said venom could spread even if contact with it wasnt made.
- Reality Ensues: Unfortunately, even after this Minusaurs death, its venom does not instantly vanish. The only way to counteract it is to create an antidote using one of its fangs as it was pulled off by Koh in episode 6.
- Top-Heavy Guy: Due to the nested mouth design, the outermost head is huge enough to count as a Cephalo Thorax.
Cockatrice MinusaurA Minusaur thought to be born from an enka singer named Ippei Shimomura, but was actually born from a Human Alien princess named Fita from the planet Cepeus, based on her negative emotions from being kidnapped by Wizeru and trapped in the Minusaur itself.
- Basilisk and Cockatrice: It is themed after a cockatrice.
- Dirty Coward: It is willing to position itself to ensure the Ryusoulgers can't attack, putting an entire Ferris Wheel of children behind it so a finishing move would kill civilians too.
- It Can Think: As mentioned above it goes for all Minusaurs, but this one takes the cake. Even though it is no more talkative than other Minusaurs, it is also very smart in combat with use of tactics and its environment, in a way we don't see with past monsters or even generals.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: It attacks with a paralyzing scream. Possibly derived from its host Fita coming from a race of singing-inclined aliens.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Bad singing causes a bad reaction from it. Its host was said to be allergic to bad singing, so Asuna created an opening for the others with hers.
Mimic MinusaurA Minusaur born from an ornamental box that was unopened for years. Based on its negative emotions of being unopened, it creates a pocket dimension based on the miniature garden it contained inside, which traps multiple humans and siphons off their negative emotions of being trapped with an endless supply of their item of desire with no way to stop or escape.
- Lotus-Eater Machine: Functions more like this than a Monster of the Week.
- Non-Standard Character Design: Unlike many of the Minusaurs before and after it, it takes the form of a treasure chest. This is derived from its host being not a human, but an ornamental box that held negative emotions from being unopened for years to show the miniature garden it contained.
- Something Completely Different: Its pocket-dimension properties allow it to siphon the lifeforce of dozens of victims at once, and then use them to fuel revived past monsters (though they can't be deployed in the real world).
Troll MinusaurA Minusaur born from an ex-boxing student named Kenta Mori, based on his guilt over getting into a street fight that crippled his close friend Shoji Kawamura, and wishing to have been the one to have taken the blow instead.
- Attack Reflector: He is able to absorb attacks with his left arm and fire them back out through the right.
- Boxing Battler: A given due to his host's boxer nature, which was the reason Kureon sought him out.
- Gag Nose: Of the swollen, pockmarked variety.. This was also thought to be the weak point, but this only infuriated him.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Come, come!!note
- Our Trolls Are Different: It is themed after a troll.
- Rock Monster: Specifically a mountain troll. Additional features include a snow-tipped mountain above his head, along with moss decorated on his forearms and covering his enitres shins.
- Zipperiffic: If you look closely, you'll notice a long zipper in the middle of the Minusaur's body, revealing the head.
Shen MinusaurA Minusaur born from a firefighter trainee named Shina Masaki, based on his regrets of giving up his dreams of being a film director to live up to his father's expectations as a firefighter. Wizeru specifically requested this Minusaur to be created in the hopes that its host's firefighting nature would give it an edge over the fire-based Kishiryu DimeVolcano to capture it.
- Blades Below The Shoulder: It has a barb on each arm that can extend into a blade for combat.
- Clam Trap: It is based on Shen, a shapeshifting sea monster in the form of a giant clam from Chinese mythology that is believed to create illusions.
- Master of Illusion: It has an ability to project illusions onto clouds of steam it produces, due to its host being a fireman trainee whose real desire was to be a film director. This was used in many ways, such as tricking the Ryusoulgers into seeing each other as mooks, or disguising itself as a female DimeVolcano to lure the original into a trap.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Yeah, real show!note
Mummy MinusaurA Minusaur born from Japan's prime minister Mioko Karino, who in truth was a long-living Ryusoul Tribe member who spent most of her life travelling the world. It was based on her desire to die alongside her aging human lover Keisuke Onoda.
- Chest Blaster: It can fire a truth-inducing beam from the orb in its chest, forcing whoever hits by the beam to tell the truth.
- Mummy: Based on the undead itself.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Wannada!note / Wanna die!
- Scary Scorpions: Its feet are modeled after scorpions, something not unheard of in deserts like Egypt.
- Top-Heavy Guy: Complete with designs from pyramids.
- Weaksauce Weakness: Thanks to being covered in dry bandages, fire can harm it even in giant form.
- What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: While no slouch in short to medium range combat, its primary ability is making people spew out the truth. So basically it destroys relationships as well. Unfortunately for it, that power returns only to bite it in the ass when it targets both Tyramigo and DimeVolcano: instead of fighting each other, the two Kishiryu confess their true feelings to one another as friends.
Basilisk MinusaurA Minusaur born from an unknown host, based on an unknown desire, although based on its vocabulary, the desire appears to be related to cutting something. It was destroyed immediately by RyusoulGold before it could even do any harm or pose a threat to anyone.
- Basilisk and Cockatrice: It is based on the basilisk. To further distinguish itself from the Cockatrice Minusaur, it was repainted and remodeled.
- Early-Bird Cameo: It first appeared in the first episode as an unidentified Minusaur that was destroyed by RyusoulGreen and Black.
- Moment Killer: This is the reason why RyusoulGold killed it.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Cut it up!!note
- We Hardly Knew Ye: It only shows up for mere seconds before being obliterated by RyusoulGold in just a few trigger pulls.
Kelpie MinusaurA Minusaur born from a club host named Kazuma Kuda, based on his stresses from working at his job to support both his girlfriend Akane Mizuta and himself.
- Cephalothorax: Like the Unicorn Minusaur, its face is on its chest.
- Hellish Horse: Based on the kelpie itself.
- Lightning Bruiser: It proves unbeatable by anything the core five Ryusoulgers have in their arsenal, with its water manipulation providing it with extreme offense and defense alike. It's no wonder that Gachireus wants 500 copies just like it.
- Logical Weakness: While its water shields make it functionally invincible to most forms of attack, RyusoulGold's electrical attacks go through them like they're not even there.
- Make Me Wanna Shout: In addition to its water-controlling abilities, the Kelpie Minusaur can produce an agonizing soundwave attack.
- Making a Splash: The Kelpie Minusaur's primary and most dangerous ability is its power to manipulate water. The water shields that it creates are especially effective against Koh's fire-based abilities, but also just prove monstrously strong in general.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Drink!note
Pan MinusaurA Minusaur born from a Youtube professor named DON Jiro, who specializes in magnetism, based on his anger over his lover Aki breaking up with him for someone else.
- Fauns and Satyrs: Based on a faun named Pan.
- Magnetism Manipulation:
- It can fire beams of magnetic energy which either repels or attracts the targets.
- Humans are affected differently, as they are all inflicted with the same S-polarity. This causes them to repel away from each other, the intensity of the repulsive force being stronger the closer their bond with each other is.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Split up!!/Stick together!!note
Ghost Ship MinusaurA Minusaur born from a teacher named Emiko, who was Bamba's human lover 50 years ago. It was based on her desire to see a unique rainbow-coloured seashell, found only from the beaches of Mitama town, with which she used to remember him by in the past.
- Dem Bones: It's got white skeletal hands and a skull motif on its body armor.
- Ghost Ship: It is based on a haunted ghost ship.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Rainbow!note
- Sand Blaster: It can fire a sand shot from its bow cannon to bury its enemies.
- Top-Heavy Guy: The front of a wooden ship makes up the majority of the top half.
Golem MinusaurA Minusaur born from a wish stone, based on its "resentment" from being constantly wished upon without rest.
- Arm Cannon: It is armed with a pair of fist cannons for combat.
- Golem: Based of the Golem creature from the Jewish folklore.
- Me's a Crowd: Bamba's attempt to destroy the Minusaur by slicing its source stone in half ended up duplicating it instead, as technically a stone cannot be destroyed, only broken up into more rocks.
- Wizeru's attempt to monopolize on this trait later on by breaking the stone into more pieces was foiled by Bamba and Asuna.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Please!/Wish!note
- Something Completely Different: The first completely inorganic Minusaur, looking more like a bowling ball with limbs than the typically humanoid golem.
Arachne MinusaurA Minusaur born from a PE teacher named Misako Iimura, based on her frustration over getting her students to follow school rules.
- Giant Spider: Based of Arachne, a talented mortal weaver in the Greek mythology who challenged Athena to a weaving contest which resulted in Arachne being transformed into a spider.
- Logical Weakness: Due to her main ability stemming from her targets breaking her school rules plastered all over the school walls, once forced out of school grounds she is unable to use her ability on anyone, save for a few unlucky victims who just so happened to break the law in front of her off-screen.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Ru-ru-ru-ru-rule.../Rule violated!note (When using her Special Attack)
- Squishy Wizard: Aside from her special ability to teleport rule-breakers into her pocket dimension, she is stated by Kureon to be physically weak and incapable of fighting, which adds irony considering her host teaches physical education.
- Top-Heavy Guy: Like a lot of spider monsters in Heisei toku, its eight legs and abdomen make up its head.
Grimoire MinusaurA Minusaur taking the form of a sketchbook, it was born from an artist named Shotaro, based on his stress from being captured by the Druidons and unable to paint with his younger brother Kyohei.
- Art Initiates Life: Being an inanimate Minusaur, this was the only ability it possesses. Wizeru uses this extensively, such as creating cages that trapped the Ryusoulgers and creating a giant version of himself when the Minusaur grew giant.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: The cages Wizeru produced through the Minusaur had locks on them. Towa took notice of this and used the Minusaur to produce keys for the cage locks, freeing the captured Ryusoulgers.
- Something Completely Different: Blatant Off-the-Shelf FX (A generic sketchbook one could literally find anywhere), and behaves more like a Minusaur's tool than an actual Minusaur, as anyone could just grab it and use it (as Towa eventually finds out). It is also no more durable than an ordinary paper.
Necromancer MinusaurA Minusaur born from the deceased Master Pink, based on her desire to be revived.
- Back from the Dead: Its main ability causes the dead to be revived, at the cost of the living disappearing in their place. It mainly uses this to bring Tankjoh back to life, under Kureon's orders.
- Dimension Lord: It can travel between the lands of the living and the dead, breaking the walls of reality in the process. Only the Cosmos Raptors could keep up with it's power.
- Dem Bones: Wears skeletal-like armor on its arms
- Nice Hat: It has a tall, pointed hat on its head.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Switch...!note
- Power Floats: It is capable of levitating itself.
Dwarf MinusaurA Minusaur born from a woman named Mao Yaomasu, based on her wish to reject inheriting her father's martial arts dojo in favour of pursuing her dreams of becoming a patissier in France with her boyfriend.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: Being born from the daughter of the actual martial arts master (and she is not even planning on following that path!) is enough to give the Minusaur martial arts skills that can match our heroes, before breaking out the special abilities.
- Edible Ammunition: It is capable of firing strawberry-shaped energy blast, as well as creating cake wall with its spatula.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Sweets!note
- Shout-Out: Its white gi, red gloves and black belt is reminiscent to Ryu's clothes from the Street Fighter series.
Grim Reaper MinusaurA Minusaur accidentally born from Anikin, a producer of Youtube channel AnikinTV, after he befriended Kureon and the latter accidentally spiked his drink with their slime. It is based on his desire for his dance collaboration video starring Kureon to be a success.
- Made of Evil: It's the only subversion of this since Kureon never intended for this Minusaur to be created, moreover with Anikin feeling satisfied with his video, the Minusaur had no negative emotions to grow from and was limited to only working from the internet, attached to the video Anikin and Kureon made. Nevertheless, even with the limitations it had it still manages to wreak lots of havoc in the real world.
- Me's a Crowd: It is capable of creating several clones of itself.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Just like that...note
- The Grim Reaper: Based after Death itself.
Dodomeki MinusaurA Minusaur born from a woman named Chika Sudo, supposedly based on her desire for kindness.
- Impossible Thief: Fitting into its mythology as a Dodomeki, a thief yokai that steals money, this Dodomeki steals the kindness of others leaving them mean and rude.
- One-Word Vocabulary: Want!!note
