Daigo Kiryu/Kyoryu Red
The Fanged Hero | Live actor: Ryo RyuseiThe son of Dantetsu Kiryu, Daito is 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, is a decent artist at times and may possess various other skills learned and developed through his life-long travels across the entire world, most made possible due to a type of mental trickery he employse, and the knowledge/ability to perceive the core goal and a path to achieve it. He continues to show that he EARNED the title of King, and leads through example. He is good at many things that it becomes an...
- Achilles' Heel: #17 demonstrates that he has no weakness due to him being a well-rounded, balanced individual already which is what made 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 due to the mental double-speak he's utilized that allowed him to become so good at everything else.
- Armor-Piercing Attack: To prove that he's grown in strength, he had to crack Tessai's Hard Head.
- 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.
- Back-to-Back Badasses: With Utsusemimaru in #12.
- Barehanded Blade Block: He showed this skill in #12, but afterwards the sword was twisted and he got cut anyways.
- 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 (except not: the end of that episode reveals that it was actually Aigaron), 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.
- Played straight, however, in episode 20, where the Monster of the Week had the power to grant wishes, but the wisher lost all of their good luck energy and will die by the next sunrise. Daigo believes that dreams are what guide us in life, so making people die for them will earn a This Is Unforgivable! reaction from him. Coincidentally, his Disappeared Dad showed up to pull a Big Damn Heroes and help him save all of the victims. Even better, the moment of Dad-Ex-Machina is justified in storyline as his Dad was in town to meet Torin
- Can't Catch Up: In #17 it's King's turn to be the one who isn't able to fight on the same level as his teammates after the training with Tessai.
- Catchphrase: Areru ze, tometemina!note
- When using a Snap-Together change form as Carnival it becomes Odoreru ze, tometemina!note
- Charles Atlas Superpower: The guy may be kind of skinny, but he is still capable of peak-human to near super human feats of strength and agility.
- Clueless Chick Magnet: Daigo. Mikoto, Yayoi and Amy all like him, but he's completely oblivious. At least until the finale when he confesses to Amy that he likes her.
- Combat Pragmatist: In #3, during a sword fight between him and Souji (both in their Kyoryu personas), he uses his Gaburevolver to turn the tables. Let's just say the others weren't pleased, although Souji concedes the win, mentioning he never outright said he couldn't use his gun as well.
- In #19, he has no problem shooting a baby. Well, a monster disguising itself as a baby, after the entire team witnesses it transform from a monster into a baby. Everyone else, ironically, was enthralled by its baby-form
- Dance Battler: Like the entire team, he 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.
- Disney Death: In the final episode.
- The Ditz
- Empowered Badass Normal: From what we see, the guy was already a badass before Torin chose him to be Kyoryu Red.
- Finishing Move: Zyuden Carnival Finishnote
- 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.
- Funny Bruce Lee Noises: When in Kung Fu Carnival form.
- 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 Sacrifice: Remained in the Frozen Castle just as it exploded. Of course, he turns up alive a few days later.
- 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.
- Identical Stranger: He looks just like Utsusemimaru's lord.
- Idiot Hero: When they first met Ian likes to call him, "The King of Idiots". Daigo took it as a compliment. The rest of the team had to tell him it wasn't.
- Ironically, Daigo was reading in-between-the-lines of Ian's statements to see the gratitude in helping him push his friends Death out of the forefront of his thoughts which had been making Ian Lock up in Battle, due to Ian's series-long issues with honestly expressing himself. Meaning Ian's Insult WAS meant as a compliment.
- While he IS very Dense to things that are obvious to others in example, in the Summer movie His Friend Mikoto declares she loves him, which he misses due to the music on stage preventing him from hearing her, For the most part Daigo's Character is a Subversion of the trope as it is commonly used in Super Sentai with its Reckless Idiot Reds, as the things he doesn't know or is oblivious about are things he's not ever had experience with due to how he's lived as a nomad. He's certainly Book-Dumb due to obtaining no formal education, but otherwise is a world-wise individual with a diverse skillset earned from his travels and acts very quick-witted; shown in the first episode with how he plans out his way to beat Gabutyra. later, when the rest of the team are fooled by a monster's transformation into a cute ball of adorableness to keep them from attacking, Daigo's the one who shoot at it to remind them it's a monster manipulating them. And with his world-traveling knowledge, he's very people-focused and experienced, able to cut to the core of a person's problems in order to help them with an outside perspective as he sees and seeks the truth of these around them when he connects to them.
- In-Series Nickname: Ends up being called "King" by most people he meets without him insisting on the nickname, which is a...
- Stealth Pun on the dinosaur he commands, a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Rex being Latin for king.
- Jumped at the Call: Amidst the first Deboss attack, Daigo was handed a Gaburevolver by Torin after defending some island villagers. After Seeing Gabutryra in battle, he became enthusiastic at the idea of potentially partnering with him to become a full Kyoryuger.
- taken a bit more literally when, after Gabutyra initially rejects him after Daigo beats him, when he's sucked into one of Torin's teleportation portals when trying to ask Torin wait.
- Kid-Appeal Character: By the fact that he's a Friend to All Children. Shares this and is more seen with Utsusemimaru
- Kirk Summation: He gave a truly spectacular one to Deboss.Daigo: How is Torin a failure!? You're the one who's incomplete, Deboss!! Even though you ate dinosaur and human emotions to your hearts's content, you still don't understand the power of those feelings! Dinosaurs plus humans... Someone like you will never understand the strength of the successive generations of this planet's life!!
- Large Ham
- Last Minute Hook Up: Surprisingly, Daigo and Amy have this rather early into Brave Final.
- The Leader
- 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.
- Magnetic Hero: He's the one who got the other Kyoryugers to work with each other - they didn't even want to share their identities otherwise.
- Memento Macguffin: Given to him by his father and it seems to have ties with what the Deboss want.
- All There in the Manual states that it's a Guardian Stone, specifically the remains of Allomerus.
- Nice Guy: The guy just wants everyone is his team to get along, fight together while getting to know them, and then you add Friend to All Children into the mix.
- Beware the Nice Ones: Despite that, he will kick your ass if you make him your enemy.
- Oblivious to Love: Seems unfazed when Yayoi's extensive stash of pictures of him, as well as holographic images of him stored in the memory of her glasses, is accidentally revealed...though he wasn't in the room when that happened. But he otherwise is oblivious to Yayoi's rather overt affection for him. A more straight example is when his friend Mikoto confesses to him just as she's about to go on stage at a concert, but he couldn't hear her over the noise. Amy, on the other hand...
- The Power of Friendship
- 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 , to show how much stronger he's become in #18.
- Rookie Red Ranger: Was the last to tame his dinosaur.
- Shirtless Scene: In episode 27, getting Carnival Mode for the first time.
- Signature Move: Ganretsu Punchnote
- Since his training with Tessai in #18 he has also begun to use the Spirit Ranger's Gekiretsu Toppa as well.
- Smart Ball: In #19, the Monster of the Week can disguise itself as an almost disgustingly cute baby in order to charm people. When it tries this against Daigo...he just shoots it in the face.Daigo: You do realize you changed right in front of me, don't you?
Debo Kyawaeen: Crap, someone with common sense!
- Only Sane Man: Acts as this for most of the series. 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. This shows up as early as episode 2, when he shows through example to Nobuharu that not engaging Deboss will endanger his family just as much if not more than him staying with them until he's confirmed they're safe before joining the fight and 3, when he has to remind Souji's Badass swordsman Dad he's a civilian in a combat zone
- Super Mode: Kyoryu Red Carnival. Like Kyoryuzin, Daigo can equip the Zyudenryu of the others to grant himself their abilities.
- Samba Carnival: Stegotchi Shield & Dricera Drill
- Western Carnival: Parasa Beam Gun & Zakutor Sword
- Macho Carnival: Ankydon Hammer & Dricera Drill
- Kung Fu Carnival: Ankydon Hammer & Bunpachy Ball
- TV-Maga Carnival: Plezu Cannon & Ankydon Hammer, only seen in a DVD Special.
- Taking the Bullet: Took a strike from Dogold that would have taken out Torin in #9. Good thing he's Made of Iron so he was able to strike back right away.
- Terrible Artist: Has the skills of a kindergartener.
- 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.
- This Is Unforgivable!: In response to D's rage at the Kyoryugers successfully breaking the spell that had turned Meeko evil:D: Unforgivable!!Daigo: Oh yeah? I think so too!!
- 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.
- Weapon of Choice
- Wholesome Crossdresser: Wears a girl's uniform in #13. Don't ask.
- The Worf Effect: In Carnival mode, got completely destroyed by Chaos' new monsters in #44 to show how powerful they were.
Ian Yorkland/Kyoryu Black
The Bullet Hero | Live actor: Syusuke SaitoA 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.
- Automatic Crossbows: Parasa Shot
- Awesome by Analysis: In #5 Ian shows that he's capable of learning a foe's talents by studying them. This comes in handy later when they need to beat the MotW.
- Back-to-Back Badasses: With Souji in episode #47.
- 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.
- Berserk Button: Three: calling him untrustworthy, making any of his girlfriends shed tears, and being Aigaron.
- But Not Too Foreign: He's from Europe, plus what else would you expect with a guy named Ian Yorkland?
- Catchphrase: "Oh my!"
- Character Tics: Has a habit of kissing the Zyudenchi he's holding.
- 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.
- Chick Magnet: Almost every other day he seems to be dating a different girl.
- Chivalrous Pervert: #33 expands on this by having Ian's old girlfriend Erika explain that even if he is a big ol' flirt, Ian does want every girl that he flirts with to be happy and does things like buying an astronomical number of flowers in order to do so.
- 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: To Gai Yuki, for being a Black Ranger who's a bit of a loner, and is generally charming with the ladies.
- Foil: To Souji in two ways:
- Glass Cannon: By mainly using long-ranged weapons in combat.
- Gratuitous English
- Guns Akimbo: He does this during the two-part finale, where Souji lends him his Gaburevolver while battling an army of Paramonsters.
- 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.
- I Let My Best Friend Die
- Intergenerational Friendship: With Souji, who's 16 while Ian is 23. His late best friend also looks to have been several years older than Ian.
- Image Song: Solid Bullet, which is suitably cool.
- Long-Range Fighter: Though he can use the Gabricalibur as well.
- My Greatest Failure: He missed a crucial shot during the De Boss' initial attack, which resulted in his best friend being killed.
- Odd Friendship: With Souji.
- Number Two: The entire team considers him this and nominate him to be leader when Daigo runs off. While he initially refuses out of fear that he will lose more friends, he gets better. And shows exactly why he's the #2 of the group.
- Plucky Comic Relief: One of two. He is perhaps reliable on the "plucky" side of the trope.
- In one episode, his "comic relief" side showed off when he melted Souji's sword through the test drive of a Zyudenchi.
- Revenge Before Reason: Sometimes. Best shown in Episode 16, though, unlike most examples of this trope, he's able to snap out of this mentality and calls himself out on it.
- In Brave 46 Ian faces a badly injured and helpless Aigaron; however, having seen the latter get mortally wounded in order to protect Candelira and Luckyuro, Ian can't bring himself to finish him off.
- Shipper on Deck: For Souji and Katsuyama-san.
- The Smart Guy: Nobuharu even calls him the team's brains in Episode 26.
- Sympathy for the Devil: In Brave 46, he actually cries over Aigaron's Heroic Sacrifice and death.
- Tall, Dark, and Snarky
- 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 KinjoAn 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").
- Actually Pretty Funny: His terrible puns could get his late brother in law and Candelira to laugh pretty hard. Even Luckyuro admits they're still kinda funny, despite being so lame.
- Berserk Button: A couple. As a brother and uncle, bearing ill will toward his family is one of them. The other? Don't pan his old man jokes.
- Beware the Nice Ones
- The Big Guy
- Combat Pragmatist: Despite his cheerful demeanor, 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.
- Comforting the Widow: Sort of. When Aigaron dies and his soul is set free, Candelira and Luckyuro are inconsolable. Nobuharu steps forward to try to comfort Candelira, and she falls sobbing into his arms.
- Cool Uncle
- 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.
- Funny Afro
- Get a Hold of Yourself, Man!: After discovering that his old high school friend has been duped into working with Dogold, Nobuharu punches him to snap him back to reality.
- Image Song: Minna Summer Day Ondo!, or Nossan: The Song.
- Kiai: YOSHAAA!
- The Klutz: Has shades of this, as a mere hot dog hitting in the face has him fall off a ladder, and his attempt to look cool twirling a gun only had him drop it as a result.
- Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me/Shield Bash: Stego Shield
- Nerd Glasses: Part of his disguise in #13.
- Nice Guy: As he put it in #15, "My job is to help people."
- Papa Wolf: Any attempt to hurt his niece will end badly, as seen as early as Brave 2. Also applies to his sister, as seen in brave 8.
- 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.
- Plucky Comic Relief: One of two. He could possibly be on the "comic relief" side of the trope.
- 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. Candelila is a fan of them and also made some puns.
- 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!" Then finally for the last time during the To Qger Vs Kyoryuger movie, Nobuharu uses it on himself again to try to break an barrier via floating towards it and shooting it only for the attempt to fail.
- Sharp-Dressed Man: Before he took over his late brother-in-law's odd job business.
- Salaryman: He was working in a zaibatsu before Kenichi got in an accident.
- Ship Tease: With Candelira, of all people!
- Strong as They Need to Be: Nossan has shown trouble defeating at least one monster about his size while unmorphed, yet has once thrown his mecha in the bitter cold.
- Suckiness Is Painful: One of Nossan's puns is so terrible that it causes the monster responsible for the last Ice Age to get the chills.
- Super Strength: Has shades of this. He saves Daigo and his niece by carrying the large T-Rex statue made and then chucks it at the enemy.
- This Is Unforgivable!: Unlike Daigo, he plays this straight in episode 8, when, after using his old man jokes to help his sister escape the illusion she was trapped in, he then proceeded to give the Debo Monster a Curb-Stomp Battle, via Tickle Torture, no less.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Regularly busts out dropkicks, back-drops, suplexes, chokeslams, DDTs and piledrivers on Zourima. What else does he have to do to qualify? In The Movie he even pulls off the Kinniku Buster on a Mook.
- You Shall Not Pass!: In #47.
Souji Rippukan/Kyoryu Green
The Slashing Hero | Live actor: Akihisa ShionoA cold and focused high-school swordsman who is the son of Genryu Rippukan and Reiko Tanba. 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.
- All Love Is Unrequited: Shows absolutely no romantic interest in Rin, the kendo club manager who has a crush on him. Subverted in 100 Years After; a photo is shown of Souji and Rin on their wedding day.
- Back-to-Back Badasses: With Ian in episode #47.
- Badass Boast: Gives one to the MOTW in #13 when he chastises Souji in trying to attack him with a sword: "I'm the Bladed Hero! Sharp edges are my specialty!"
- Badass in Distress: In #9-10, being captured and held hostage alongside Amy.
- Berserk Button: Don't call him a coward.
- Butt-Monkey: "Souji-kun no BAKA!!!"
- Catchphrase: Amai!note
- Close-Range Combatant: Downplayed here, as once in a while, he uses Gabrevolver to attack.
- The Comically Serious
- Emo Teen: Downplayed, he just smiles much less often compared to the other team.
- Finishing Move: Is able to replicate Torin's Trinity Strazor. Once Torin sees this, he decides to teach Souji how to properly use the move.
- Graceful Loser: See "Combat Pragmatist" under Daigo's entry for the full story, but you have to admit one has to be a good loser to admit defeat on a technicality.
- Image Song: SLASH ~Zangeki musou~
- In-Series Nickname: Ian started out calling him "Green Boy", playing on how "green" can mean "inexperienced". Once he and Ian came to understand each other better, it was upgraded to just "Boy". Ian begins to reconsider the nickname after witnessing Souji's Character Development in Brave 43.
- Subverted in Brave 47, in which Ian finally addresses Souji by his name.
- The Lancer
- Missing Mom: Subverted with Souji's mom Reiko Tanba. She left Genryu because he neglected her while he was intensely training Souji in the family swordsmanship. Souji has resented his father for this ever since. Later, Reiko, now a renowned fashion designer, returns to take custody of Souji, intent on having him give up practicing his swordsmanship, quit the Kyoryugers (like how most "visit from parents" episodes go), and become a fashion model for her label. She gets better towards the end of the episode after they reconcile.
- Oblivious to Love: Never noticed that his kendo club manager liked him, despite all the signs.
- Odd Friendship: With Ian.
- Old Mentor: Is still alive in 100 Years After. That makes him 116.
- The Resenter: Souji deeply resents Genryu for neglecting Reiko when the latter left him.
- The Quiet One
- Reverse Grip: Part of his fighting style. Most of it is a way to rebel against his father, who initially viewed the technique as unrefined and animalistic.
- Subverted in Brave 43, after finally realizing the true reason as to why he stayed with his father. Not only does he grip the sword properly now, he can also use the Trinity Strazor at its full power.
- School Uniforms Are the New Black
- Secret Keeper: After he learns of Amy's "talent".
- Also knows that Yuko is aware of the Kyoryugers' identities and, more importantly, how her brother is one of them, which he shares with Utsusemimaru.
- The Smart Guy
- The Stoic
- Trademark Favorite Food: Cream soda.
- Tsundere: Type A.
- Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World: He is still a high school student after all.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Somewhat. He didn't care so much about his father's approval so much as simple respect for doing things his own way.
- Wolverine Claws: Zakutor Slasher
- Wooden Katanas Are Even Better: Carries a wooden sword that resembles an actual katana without a tsuba with him most of the time. This shinai sometimes gets used while in civilian form as a effective weapon, and it has handled getting hit by weapons that would shatter or cut through a normal one, which brings to question just what it is made of.
Amy Yuuzuki/Kyoryu Pink
The Horned Heroine | Live actress: Ayuri KonnoA 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.
- Action Girl: Don't let her girly disposition fool you. Cross her, and she will end you.
- Aesop Amnesia: All of #14 was Gentle trying to teach her about acting like a high class citizen. Proper manners, ways of speaking, posture and all. It doesn't really stick at all.
- Badass Biker: Is seen to be the one to utilize the deinochaser most frequently and prone to doing the most stunts on a bike.
- Badass in Distress: Along with Souji in #9-10.
- Berserk Button: Don't call her fat.
- Blood Knight: A mild heroic example, but she is clearly eager to fight the Devoss any time - and when she does she sounds like she's having the time of her life.
- But Not Too Foreign: She's Japanese-American.
- Catchphrase: ~Wow~!
- Extremity Extremist: She usually kicks when not using a sidearm.
- Foreshadowing: Early episodes showing that Amy prefers to sit around reading shoujo manga rather than studying become this when after discovering that Luckyuro too was a fan of "Love Touch", she uses this to convince him that he shouldn't destroy humanity, possibly paving the way for a HeelFace Turn.
- Gratuitous English: Somewhat subverted, since she is supposed to be Japanese-American.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Though she is never shown to be mooning over Daigo, she inexplicably seems to be this way Up to Eleven in #22, upon the accidental reveal of Yayoi's crush on him, complete with whistling teakettle sound effect and steam rising from her head.
- Justified later in the episode when she says that she won't think about her potential crush on Daigo right now. Hence there wasn't anything for her to be jealous of anymore!
- After Yayoi joins the team, however, Amy's jealousy suddenly evaporates like it never existed.
- In a deleted scene from The Movie, Amy also finds herself strangely irritated by Mikoto's familiarity with Daigo, including addressing him as "Dai-kun" and exchanging hugs with him.
- 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.
- Image Song: Show me Call me I'm Amy, which NEVER GETS OUT OF YOUR SKULL.
- It's Pronounced "Tro-PAY": Amy's name is pronounced "Ah-mee", despite being from America.
- Keigo: Defied.
- Last Minute Hook Up: Surprisingly, Daigo and Amy have this rather early into Brave Final.
- Lazy Bum: Is portrayed as such when it comes to acting like a Proper Lady.
- Lightning Bruiser
- Medium Awareness: Is usually the one that reacts to getting yelled at by the narrator or any other disembodied voice that comes from nowhere.
- Meganekko: As Utsusemimaru's teacher.
- Ms. Fanservice: Short shorts, a sexy teacher outfit, and generally just being very beautiful makes her qualify for this.
- The camera loves focusing on her legs and her smile.
- Monowheel Mayhem: She has great skill on a unicycle.
- Mythology Gag: She's Japanese American, much like Diane Martin and Maria Nagisa. And this is likely not a coincidence, considering the other nods to Battle Fever.
- Ojou: 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.
- Rich Idiot with no Day Job: Averted. She comes from a wealthy family but she still requires a part time job. In #14, Gentle states that the job is to teach Amy social norms.
- Meido: Said part-time job is a maid in a cafe, complete with the costume.
- Say My Name: Amy yells Daigo's name (OK, she still calls him "King", but...) in the finale when it's assumed he died when the Frozen Palace exploded in space.
- She's Got Legs: Something that the camera loving gazes at. That, or possibly Ucchi. Despite she was being a hot teacher in episode 12.
- Looking at how often it happens to Yayoi in #29, it's likely the camera... and the audience.
- Short Tank
- The Smurfette Principle: Of the tomboyish One of the Boys variety. While this still applies to the actual team, Yayoi becoming a Kyoryuger averts this among all of the Kyoryugers.
- This Is a Drill: DriceLance
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Yayoi's Girly Girl.
- Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Amy is an Action Girl, One of the Boys, and wears a Short Tank. Her color is pink and she sometimes wear skirts instead as well.
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: She does. Which is a practical choice, given her fondness for kicking things.
The Thunderous Hero | Live actor: Atsushi MaruyamaThe 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.
- In #41 Utchy enters full-on Keet mode because it's his first Christmas and he's totally feeling the spirit of the season.
- 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.
- Arch-Enemy/The Rival: With Dogold in the past before becoming trapped.
- The Atoner: Another reason he is kind of cold towards the team; he is ashamed of his actions towards them as Dogold.
- Back-to-Back Badasses: With Daigo in #12
- Badass in Distress: Is captured by the Deboss in #18.
- Big Damn Heroes: Is usually the one to save the team from a particularly strong enemy in the nick of time.
- Cannot Talk to Women: Is deathly shy around women, though this came in handy back in #11.
- Catchphrase: Ten ikarite aku o kiru!note
- 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.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Unlike Burai (who wanted to get Revenge on Geki over their father and later dropped it after their final showdown) and Mikoto (who is the Jerkass Wild Card to the Abarangers and Evoliens), Utchy started out as a possessed Dino Sixth Ranger instead of being villainous upon introduction. He's also a lot nicer and more sociable to hang around with and his initial rudeness towards the Kyoryugers is actually part of his Hidden Heart of Gold-hiding facade due to his former lord's Dying Speech back in the Sengoku Era. And unlike the first two Dino Sixth Rangers, he only suffered a Disney Death.
- Dark and Troubled Past
- Delinquent: His disguise in #13.
- 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?
- Enemy Mine: Allows Dogold to use his body for one last time in order to defeat Endolf.
- Eureka Moment: After Dogold uses Endolf's catchphrase, he realizes what really happened to Endolf.
- Everything's Better with Samurai
- Expy: Ancient chrome-colored warrior who is sealed in one of the team's enemies? Not the first time they've done this.
- Another lesser one would be a gold samurai that is totally loyal to his lord.
- There's also a reference to Dekaranger. Utsusemimaru is loyal to someone who looks like the red ranger and uses lightning based slashes, just like a MOTW from said series.
- Shares almost the same story (possibly traits) as Siegfried Schtauffen.
- A proud and powerful warrior who is shy around women? What's Yamcha doing around here?
- Finishing Move:
- Raiden Zankou, or in English, Lightning Afterglownote
- 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.
- Friend to All Children: Unfortunately the one time he came to save a kid, it led to below.
- Hidden Heart of Gold: 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.
- I Let Gwen Stacy Die: I Let My Lord and All My Friends Die
- 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...
- In-Series Nickname: Is called "Ucchi" by Amy. Can you blame her?
- Intergenerational Friendship: With Amy since she's 18 and he's 29. Bonus points since he's from another Era all together.
- Ironic Echo: Repeats "How irritating" to Dogold as the monster is dying. Dogold actually laughs at this.
- 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.
- Killed Off for Real: In #47 After defeating Dogold in a final duel, Ucchii dies soon after, commending his friends with his dying words.
- 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.
- Leitmotif: Kyoryu Gold! Now!! The performers of the song should sound quite familiar, for more than one reason. Yep.
- Lightning Bruiser: Literally and more so than Amy, as he excels more than what the other rangers specializes in.
- Made of Iron: He has to be considering that he lasted centuries as the body for Dogold (albeit frozen most of time) but an elite monster would only last a month.
- Master Swordsman: He's a Samurai.
- 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.
- Nice Shoes: A pair of golden glorious sneakers.
- 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.
- Not Quite Dead: ....though Ucchii's death doesn't last very long as he is revived by Earth's melody.
- Older Than They Look: His actor is 30.
- #31 Reveals he's supposed to be 29.
- Although, if you take his original era into account, it would make him more like near 500 years old...
- The Power of Friendship: What ultimately convinces him to join the team. Daigo convinces him that it's okay for him to be himself and all they want is to be his friend.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to team, basically saying that he wouldn't join them. Especially a team where he's better than them in all areas of combat. Of course, he didn't mean all the cruel things he said to them, but they admit that what he said is kind of true.
- Rocket Ride: He can ride the KentroSpiker for a finisher.
- Roaring Rampage of Revenge: He spends the first half of #33 wanting to kick Ian's ass for pranking him earlier (see the "Adorkable" entry); he even zaps Ian with the Raiden Zankou in The Teaser.
- Sealed Badass in a Can: Inside Dogold until he was set free by the current Kyoryugers.
- Secret Keeper: Like Souji, he knows that Yuko knows who the Kyoryugers are.
- Shipper on Deck: With Ian for Souji and his club manager.
- Shock and Awe
- Single-Stroke Battle: His final confrontation with Dogold ends like this. He is victorious despite not transforming and fatigue from the previous battle against Endolf.
- Sixth Ranger: He's pretty humble about it, though.
- Socially Awkward Hero: Being a samurai from the feudal era does take its toll when it comes to interaction with the ladies of the modern era, especially since most of them aren't as reserved as they were during his time.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Is the nickname spelled "Ucchi", "Ucchy" or "Utchy"?
- 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.
- Sugar-and-Ice Personality: His icy side is only an act really. It was Amy who discovered his sugary sweet side as he is really nice, but just needs to get over many of his issues such as Survivor's Guilt, Fish out of Temporal Water, and the fact he was the vessel for Dogold. He keeps up his icy side to motivate the team to keep getting stronger.
- Survivor's 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.
- Trademark Favorite Food: He loves his 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.
- Verbal Tic: "~de gozaru."
- Weapon of Choice
- Mix-and-Match Weapon: GaburiChanger, which also doubles as his Transformation Trinket.
- Katanas Are Just Better: Zandar Thunder
- Revolvers Are Just Better: Though Ucchy does so exceedingly rarely, the Zandar Thunder also functions as this too.
- Infinity +1 Sword: Golder Zandar Thunder, only seen in the Summer DVD.
- When All You Have Is a Hammer...: So far, the only Zyudenchi he uses is his own #6 Pteragordon. Being The Ace though, he does not seem to need any gimmick to help him anyway.
- 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. He's also the main carrier of the Maximum Zyudenchi.
- The fact the toy version of the GaburiChanger doesn't have a reader doesn't help.
- Worthy Opponent: Brave 43 reveals that he least somewhat thinks of Dogold this way.
Auxiliary KyoryugersApart 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.
- By the Power of Grayskull!:
- Ramirez and Tessai: "Spirit Ranger, Fire!"
- 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.
- Energy Weapon: Unlike the living Kyoryugers, Ramirez and Tessai manifest their Weapon of Choice from their own power as this.
- Funny Foreigner
- Guest-Star Party Member
- Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: When fighting in a group of three in Brave 29, Ramirez and Tessai knock Zorima away with their fists while Yayoi mostly uses the Gaburevolver to blast them away.
- 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.
- Heroic Spirit: Both figurative and literal. The team thinks Ramirez is a ghost, but he corrects them by saying that he's a Spirit, one that fights on even after death. This also applies to Tessai.
- Legacy Character: Kyoryu Violet's premiere arc is about the powers being passed down to Dr Ulshade's granddaughter when he decides to retire. In the season's final arc, Torin and Dantetsu devise a plan wherein the former is killed by the latter to make a similar pass, followed a few episodes later by Ramirez and Tessai finding replacements of their own.
- Multinational Team:
- Downplayed in that while most of the rangers live in Japan, their dinosaur mecha are scattered across the globe.
- However, the trope seems to be clearly be played straight with the previous Kyoryugers; the Caucasian Ramirez fought during the Dark Ages and looks to be some sort of European warrior, Utsusemimaru was a samurai in feudal Japan, and Tessai is a monk from China.
- Non-Indicative Name: In #29, they announce themselves as the Spirit Rangers, but Yayoi is still alive at this point. She lampshades this, of course.
- Sempai/Kohai: The modern team defers to their predecessors as their sempai.
- Transformation Trinket
- Ramirez and Tessai: To transform, they hold up their partner's Zyudenchi and proclaim the above phrase.
- Dr. Ulshade and Yayoi: Since the former created the gear, he, and later his Granddaughter, utilizes a Gaburevolver to transform like the main five.
- Torin: He uses a Palette Swap of the Gaburevolver called the Giga Gaburevolver.
Ramirez/Kyoryu Cyan I
The Steel Hero | Live actor: Robert BaldwinThe 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.
- A Friend in Need: With Amy. This leads to a heartwarming moment near the end of the episode.Ramirez: See you, Powerful Lady.Amy: See you.
- Drop the Hammer: Spirit Hammer
- Gratuitous English: And Surprisingly Good English, at that. His Japanese, however, sounds somewhat broken... in other words, he sounds like a non-native speaker still getting used to the language.
- However, actor Robert Baldwin himself was born and raised in Japan. According to him, speaking with a goofy accent in a language you're perfectly fluent in is way harder than people think it would be.
- Pretty much an Unexplained Accent.
- Grievous Harm with a Body: He learned the hard way to stay away from Yuko when she's in danger.
- Hes Back: The first thing he does after getting his powers back? Send the giant Debo Viruson flying with one swing of his Spirit Hammer.
- Hot-Blooded: Put him in Kyoryuger gear and step back.
- Inconsistent Dub: Fansubbers Over-Time can't seem to decide whether his name is spelled "Ramirez" or "Ramires."
- Insistent Terminology: Ramirez says he's not a ghost, he's a "spirit". Nobuharu isn't sure what the difference is.
- 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.
- Passing the Torch: Chooses Yuko Fukui to succeed him as Kyoryu Cyan.
- 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.
- Super Strength: Just like Nobuharu and his sister Yuko.
- The Nicknamer: Addresses the team members as "Mr." or "Ms.," followed by their color, (i.e. Daigo is "Mr. Red"), with the exception of Amy, who he calls Powerful Lady".
- Token White: One of, if not the only Caucasian to be a member of a Super Sentai team.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: In #20, the Monster of the Week puts people into comas after granting their Tanabata wishes. Ucchy wishes for a mountain of ice cream, but figures he'll be safe as long as he stays in Spirit Base. Unfortunately, immediately after he says that, Ramirez returns from a trip to Belguim with a large cooler full of Belgian ice cream.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Pulls off an awesome flying bodyslam against some Paramonsters in 29.
Tessai/Kyoryu Gray I
The Clashing Hero | Live Actor: Masayuki DeaiThe 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.
- All Chinese People Know Kung-Fu
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Until you realize his good intentions.
- Bald of Awesome
Debo Karyudosu: Which of those is your real head?!Tessai: I have no reason to tell you.
- Grows out of it as shown by the new opening in #27, which is really weird when you remember that he's a ghost.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: Part of his fighting style, as reflected by his Tessai-Kennote .
- Blow You Away: He punched the air to knock Daigo on his ass.
- Brutal Honesty
- Burning with Anger: Displays the mild bell pepper version in #38.
- Catchphrase: "I am a remarkably hard-headed person".
- Character Tics: Knocking the top of his head.
- Drill Sergeant Nasty
- Epic Flail: His Signature Move involves him firing a projection of Bunpachy's tail at the enemy.
- Facial Markings: Has the symbol of Bunpachy on his forehead.
- Forehead of Doom: In more ways than one.
- Funny Bruce Lee Noises
- 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.
- 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.
- Kiai: Also counts as Funny Bruce Lee Noises.
- Master of Illusion: Shown in #29, when he allows both Kyoryuzin, and himself, Ramirez and Utchy to escape. Brought back up in #43, where Tessai is said to use some of his Spirit Energy to give Torin a human disguise.
- New-Age Retro Hippie: His disguise.
- 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.
- Passing the Torch: Chooses his descendant, Shinya Tsukouchi, to succeed him as Kyoryu Gray.
- Punny Name: Another way to read his name is Tetsui, which means Hard Head.
- Signature Move: Gekiretsu Toppanote .
- Training from Hell: Puts the team through rough training to become stronger.
- Use Your Head
- Warrior Monk
- Wig, Dress, Accent: Puts on a disguise to help guide Daigo in his training. It helps that no one saw his face beforehand.
Doctor Ulshade/Kyoryu Violet
The Marine Hero | Live Actor: Shigeru ChibaThe 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.
- Back for the Finale: After last being seen at the end of #24, he returns in #47 piloting Plezu-Oh against a giant Killbolero.
- Badass Bookworm: Not only is he an inventor and a scientist, he's also a Kyoryuger.
- Badass Boast/In the Name of the Moon: His roll call during his debut episode is about what you'd expect from Chiba.
- Chewing the Scenery: More like "Knocking down the Scenery." Just check out his roll call intro.
- Cool Old Guy: Trumps Nossan in age by being the oldest living Kyoryuger.
- *Crack!* "Oh, My Back!": Due to his age, this has begun to be a problem. Done hilariously in #21, during his roll call no less.
- Cool Shades
- Dented Iron: Due to the *Crack!* "Oh, My Back!" moment above.
- Gadgeteer Genius: He made the gear that the core Kyoryugers use
- Hot-Blooded: Verily.
- Large Ham: Shown screaming and laughing like crazy as an Establishing Character Moment. His Kyoryu Change and his announcement as the Sea Hero is definitely over the top.
- Laughing Mad
- Omnidisciplinary Scientist: So he makes advanced weapons based off ancient dino tech and studies Deboss? Pretty impressive, if we do say so ourselves.
- The Nicknamer: Has the habit of adding "chi" to the end of the everyone's name, except Yayoi. (ex. Daigochi, Torinchi, etc.)
- The Smart Guy: Despite being the largest ham in a World of Ham.
Yayoi Ulshade/Kyoryu Violet II
The Marine Heroine | Live Actress: Marie ItoyoGranddaughter 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.
- Action Girl: After becoming a Kyoryu, she becomes on par with Amy in this department.
- 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.
- Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: You can tell that Yayoi gets exasperated with her grandpa at times, but she also really cares for his well-being, and attempts to keep him from going too wild.
- Badass Adorable
- Badass Bookworm: Just like her grandpa.
- Bayonet Ya: Her Gaburucannon with the blade extended.
- Child Prodigy: Helps her grandpa's research and creates advanced weapons, even though she's just a teenager!
- Commuting on a Bus
- Cute Bruiser: When transformed, she becomes the shortest member of the team. She could still kick the ass of anyone twice her size despite that.
- Did Not Get the Girl: Despite having been shown to have had a huge crush on Daigo and even telling Amy that she will not lose to her, Yayoi seemed to have to all of a sudden just let Amy have Daigo without so much as a whimper.
- Everyone Can See It: Almost all of the Kyoryugers know Yayoi has a crush on Daigo. The only one who doesn't? Daigo himself. Naturally, she's extremely distressed when his close friend Mikoto returns to Japan. As it turns out, Yayoi is right to be suspicious of her - though for the wrong reasons. In the end, however, she looks like she accepts the fact that Daigo likes Amy rather than her.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Must run in the family.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Is distressed when Daigo receives a postcard from Mikoto, in which she tells him that she is returning to Japan to give him something important. Yayoi also refers to Mikoto as "the enemy" when talking to Amy; little does Yayoi realize how true her words turn out to be when Mikoto is found to be under D's control.
- 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.
- Mad Scientist's Beautiful Granddaughter
- Meganekko: Subverted; she can actually see without the glasses and the glasses are mostly for hologram projections.
- The Glasses Come Off: Which goes along with her development to become Kyoryu Violet.
- Modesty Shorts
- Ms. Fanservice
- Multi-Ethnic Name: She has a Japanese first name but has a seemingly western surname.
- Panty Shot: Though '''very briefly''' during her transformation◊.
- Purely Aesthetic Glasses
- Running Gag: Tessai and Ramirez keep on forgetting that she's not dead.
- She's Got Legs
- Shrinking Violet: Yayoi lacks a degree of confidence in her abilities, something even her grandfather notes. However, she has a side that shows that she has more to her then she knows.
- And since she becomes Kyoryu Violet, the pun is probably unintended.
- Stalker with a Crush: She eventually got busted for it, though.
- Stalker Shrine: In hardcopy and softcopy!
- 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.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Amy's Tomboy.
- 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!
- Who Wears Short Shorts?: Hidden underneath her skirt.
Torin/Kyoryu Silver I
Wise God/Demon Sword Priest/The Flashing Hero | Voice Actor: Toshiyuki MorikawaThe 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' Demon Sword Priest 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. However in #45, Torin is killed by none other than Dantetsu himself, making the latter the new Kyoryu Silver.
Take note, many of his character tropes relate to the above spoilers.
- Anthropomorphic Personification: As he says just before he first transforms: "Let my body become Bravery incarnate!"
- Anti Anti Christ: He was Deboss' Demon Sword Priest, but defected upon seeing the true beauty of life.
- Ascended Demon: He went from a Deboss-made herald of destruction to a God of Good.
- Became even more of one when he becomes Kyoryu Silver.
- The Atoner: He's a reformed Debo Monster, and Chaos's brother, at that.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: He's The Mentor for good reason.
- 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 Baritone: It's so badass and so baritone that it's acknowledged In-Universe.
- 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 Preacher: His former ties with the Deboss Army makes him this.
- Batman Gambit: In #47, he and Dantetsu formulate a plan where Dantetsu kills Torin and sends him to Hell where he can take down the fallen Deboss Legion members while Dantetsu claims the Giga Gaburevolver so he can become the next Kyoryu Silver.
- Cain and Abel: The Abel to Chaos' Cain.
- Big Good: He is a God and is responsible for giving the team their powers.
- Big Damn Heroes: Saves Daigo from Chaos in #7.
- 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.
- Character Tics: Snapping his fingers whenever he says "brave".
- The Comically Serious/Deadpan Snarker: Has shades of both. He can joke with the team and tell them the most absurd things in dire situations with a straight face.
- Cool Sword: Feather Edge
- Deader Than Dead: Due to being killed by Dantetsu, he can't even return as a spirit. Without a miracle, Torin isn't coming back this time. His vocal appearance in the 100 years later special ultimately plays with this trope however.
- Disney Death: In episode 28. Of course, we don't know yet, but it seems likely that his death in 45 is going to stick.
- Dying as Yourself: Twice: #1 Breaks himself from Deboss' enthrallment long enough to impale himself on the Pentablade, subverted as he gets revived later. #2 As part of the gambit with Dantetsu to send him down to hell to reek havoc on the dead deboss legion members, this one is played straight and sticks
- 11th-Hour Ranger
- Et Tu, Brute?: Ends up killed by the man who was arguably his closest friend....or so as we were initially led to believe. See Thanatos Gambit below on the why this is subverted.
- 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.
- Famous Last Words: "King..."
- Finishing Move: Trinity Strazernote
- Punny Name: With the Japanese pronunciation, it's Torinity Strazor.
- Fireballs: His main attack.
- 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!
- A Form You Are Comfortable With: When Souji's father demands to see the Kyoryungers' leader he takes on an illusionary human form to speak with him. And being his voice actor in a rare on-camera role, it's pretty handsome.
- God of Good: one way to take his verbal assistance to Candelilla in the 100 years later special
- 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.
- 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.
- HeelFace Turn: Was a member of the Deboss, but turned good.
- Heel Realization: He was sent as a vanguard for Deboss but seeing the beauty of life made him realize how pointless being an Omnicidal Maniac was making him decide to become the Big Good.
- Hunter of His Own Kind
- Image Song: Senkou no Bravenote , which is used when he first becomes Silver in ep 36.
- In the Blood: As a Deboss monster, he has a genetic compulsion to kill, but he's held it back for millions of years, now that is moral character.
- Killed Off for Real: In #45, Torin is murdered by none other than Dantetsu himself and turns into dust soon afterwards. Though really, his death was really a Batman Gambit formulated between Dantetsu and Torin.
- Knight Templar: Shows some signs of this in 25, insisting that the team destroy the relatively harmless Luckyuro and Candelira just to ensure Deboss can't ever return.
- Though it seems he might have a good reason. Since it appears that any surviving Legion members ensure Master Deboss's survival...
- The Mentor: And possibly the most open, hands-on mentor in Super Sentai history, even jumping into battle with the team on more than one occasion.
- Thanatos Gambit: Had Dansetsu kill him so he could go to hell with an intact warrior spirit, allowing him to kill all of the Deboss ghosts and foil their attempts at reviving.
- Token Enemy Minority: As revealed in #28.
- My Greatest Failure:
- Letting Utsusemimaru sacrifice himself to protect him hundreds of years ago and then in present day letting Pterogodon fall into the hands of the Deboss.
- And even before that, letting Bragigas sacrificing itself to avenge all the Guardians.
- Not So Above It All: Jokingly addressed Nobuharu through Daigo's nickname for him, "Nossan" - and picked up using it before any of the other Kyoryuger did!
- He also has no problem telling the team to use the Ovirappoo battery to "bravely let one rip."
- #38 reveals that he reads the shoujo manga Amy leaves in the Spirit Base. #40 shows that he was trying to watch a Kaiju movie on Amy's DVD player.
- One-Man Army: He basically conquered Hell single handedly.
- The Power of Rock: To transform, Torin strums his Giga Gaburevolver like a guitar, which then emits a heavy metal tune.
- Regular Caller
- The Rival: To Chaos. Justified as Chaos is his older brother.
- Sharp-Dressed Man: His human disguise in #43, thanks to Tessai's illusion powers.
- Super Mode: Kyoryu Silver can be seen as this for him, as he was already an extremely powerful and badass warrior.
- Taken for Granite: Whenever he exerts himself too much, his wings turn to stone. Taken Up to Eleven in #29 when his whole body becomes petrified.
- Walking Spoiler: It's hard to reveal more about him past #28, trust us on this.
- Winged Humanoid
- "World of Cardboard" Speech: In #36 just before transforming into Kyoryu Silver for the first time.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!
Dantetsu Kiryu/Kyoryu Silver II
The Flashing Hero | Live Actor: Shinji Yamashita
Daigo's father. He one day mysteriously vanished, leaving Daigo with some money and a pendant which resembles a mysterious stone that Aigaron stole from Ian's best friend. In Brave 45, he allies with the Deboss Legion, betraying and murdering Torin and stealing the Kyoryu Silver powers; turns out this seeming act of betrayal is part of a larger scheme Dantetsu and Torin cooked up to severely cripple the Deboss Legion.
- Badass Normal: He was able to punch the air to stop a monster, and Daigo casually implies that it's something he could always do.
- Empowered Badass Normal: As Kyoryu Silver.
- Bare-Fisted Monk: As Kyoryu Silver, he prefers using his brute strength and rocket punches as opposed to his gun or any other weapon.
- Bare-Handed Blade Block: Against a powered-up Dogold
- Batman Gambit: Reveals in #46 that in order to save Earth, he killed Torin to send him to Hell with his righteous spirit intact so that Torin can destroy all the demons from within Hell itself.
- Brown Note: Uses this on Torin to weaken him before killing him.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: Daigo had to inherit it from someone.
- The Chosen One: Was the one chosen by the Earth itself to have the ability to hear the melody of the Earth (which explains how he found the Guardian Stones.). Essentially he was chosen to walk the path of the mighty lizards and destined to become the Earth's king.
- Disappeared Dad: Although he recently appeared in #20, dressed as he was prior to his disappearance.
- Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: Using his ability to hear the melody of the Earth, he learned of the rise of the Deboss Legion and knew he had to do something about it. Knowing that the mission was too dangerous, he left Daigo behind while collaborating with Torin and Dr. Ulshade to deal with the issue.
- 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.
- FaceHeel Turn: Is revealed to have aligned himself with the Deboss Legion in #45, though for how long this will last is unknown.
- Defied in the very next episode. As it turns out, he sent Torin to Deboss Hell so he could destroy it and all the fallen Deboss monsters as well.
- In-Series Nickname: Is called "King" by Torin and Dr. Ulshade, which explains why Torin never addressed Daigo as "King", despite joining everyone else in calling Nobuharu "Nossan."
- Magical Flutist: And used this ability to locate the Stones. He also uses this to weaken Torin before outright killing him in #45.
- 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 There 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.
- Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: "Please grit your teeth, because I'm going to punch them out."
- The Promise: Made a vow to Torin a long time ago that he would eventually find Bragigas for Torin.
- Rocket Punch: On foot.
- Secret Keeper: He seems to be the only person who knows Torin's true nature.
- Stealth Hi/Bye
- Super Speed: Maybe. Would probably explain how he is able to get away so quickly.
- Super Strength
- 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.
- Death by Origin Story
- Human Shield: Was used as one by Aigaron.
- 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.
- #34 shows that it's the fossil of Bragigas's tear.
- #29 seems to reveal that all the stones are key to finding the last Zyudenryu, Bragigas.

Yuko Fukui/Kyoryu Cyan II
The Steel Heroine | Live Actress: Ayumi Kinoshita

- Clap Your Hands If You Believe: Done to awesome effect in #35, alongside Rika, Gentle, Yuuji, Tsuyoshi and a crowd full of people.

- Grievous Harm with a Body: Using Ramirez!
- Irony: Is chosen in Brave 47 to become a member of a group that she despised at the start of the series.

- 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 with one hand. 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!
- Ramirez: Wow! Strong lady!

- Clap Your Hands If You Believe: Done to awesome effect in #35, alongside Yuko, Gentle, Yuuji, Tsuyoshi and a crowd full of people.
- 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: Jyunichi Haruta
Souji's father and head of the family sword fighting style. He originally disapproved of Souji's more savage style, but accepted it as Souji proved his own strength in combat.
- Cool Old Guy: Very much so, given that his actor Jyunichi Haruta was in his late 50s at the time.

- Master Swordsman: He's where Souji got his skills from.

- #23 just like his partner, Gabutyra Just. Will. Not. Quit.

- Leader Forms the Head: As well as other parts of the body except for arms.

Nobuharu/KyoryuBlue's partner, a blue Zyudenryu based on a Stegosaurus. Forms the right arm of Kyoryuzin, forming a shield and the Zyudenkennote when all five Kyoryugers pilot Kyoryuzin. It resides beneath the ice of the North Pole until called upon.
- Beware My Stinger Tail: Averted. This is the only arm-forming Zyudenryu whose tail is not a weapon.
- Close-Range Combatant
- Spikes of Doom: As mentioned above, instead of using its tail, Stegotchi attacks using the spikes on its back.
- Swiss Army Weapon: When combined into a Zyuden Giant, its back detaches to become one of two weapons:
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.
Amy/KyoryuPink's partner, a pink Zyudenryu based on a Triceratops. Forms the left arm of Kyoryuzin, serving as a drill, and resides within the walls of the Grand Canyon 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.

It can swap out its 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.
- Cool Ship
- Frickin' Laser Beams: Fires out a massive one as its finisher as Plezu-Oh and Bakuretsu Kyoryuzin.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: An inversion in a sense that it results in one of the greatest heroes, rather than 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!
- Space Is an Ocean: Being an aquatic dinosaur modified to travel to space.
- Hunter of Monsters: Thanks to Dr. Ulshade and Yayoi, Plezuon is armed with a program specifically designed to destroy Deboss cells. Any Zyuden Giant formed with it as a base is armed with it too.
- Transforming Mecha: Can go from Plesiosaurus to Robot, no additional mecha needed.
#10 BragigasA 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."
- A Father to His Men: As described by Torin, he is like a father to all the Guardians.
- Rest assured that this applies to all the team as well.
- All Your Powers Combined: Can use the powers of all 13 Guardians. He can also perform a Combined Energy Attack with the other nine Zyudenryu called the Gigant Cannon.
- 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.
- An Axe to Grind
- Beware My Stinger Tail: Has the Bragio Ax attached.
- Big Damn Heroes: Does this often to help/protect the team.
- Dangerous Forbidden Technique: The Gigant Cannon.
- Dragged Off to Hell: As it was being dragged there itself, Gadoma grabbed the weakened Bragigas and drug him down with him. Freed later by the Kyoryugers
- Genius Loci: The Spirit Base is revealed to be his cockpit. It briefly existed outside of him, as a parting gift to Torin and to allow the Zyudenchi to be charged.
- Gentle Giant: Unless you harm or destroy his friends in front of him.
- 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.
- Large and in Charge: So large in fact, that the Spirit Base is inside him!
- 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.
- Transforming Mecha

- Wave Motion Gun: The Gigant Cannon, an All Your Powers Combined attack that managed to defeat Deboss in ancient times, but severely injured Bragigas to use it.
#00 TobaspinoA blue and gold Zyudenryu based on a Spinosaurus. A movie exclusive Zyudenryu that is partnered with Deathryuger, it can combine with Ankydon and Bunpachy to form SpinoDaiOh.
- Awesome Mc Coolname: Its name is a pun on the phrase "Butobasse", slang for kicking butt. You gotta kick some serious ass for it to be part of your name.
- The Brute: As Daigo notes, Tobaspino plays rougher than even Gabutyra.
- Combining Mecha: Like all Zyudenryu, but deserves a special mention since Tobaspino can perform a Forced Snap-Together Combination, first seen in the movie where it forcibly combines with Ankydon and Bunpachy. And in #42, it "borrows" Parasagun and Zakutor mid-battle to become Spinodaioh Western.
- Shout-Out: A super-powerful machine monster that's controlled with a flute? Hmmm...
- Super Prototype: As 00 of the Zyudenryu.
GuardiansThese Zyudenryu have no physical bodies, instead granting special powers to the team through their weapons and mecha.
