Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Samurai Sentai Shinkenger (roughly translated as "Samurai Squadron Real Sword Ranger") is the 33rd program in the Super Sentai series, airing from 2009 to 2010.Since ancient times, the Shiba Clan have been fighting against the monstrous hordes of the Gedoushunote "Heretic Party": the demons that emerge from crevices to attack humans. When the 18th head of the Shiba Clan, Takeru Shiba, learns that the leader of the Gedoushu is close to regaining his full power, he is reluctantly forced to summon four others from his retainer families as back-up and form the Shinkenger.Together, they protect the world from the Gedoushu using the power of "Mojikara"note "Character Power"; as in "letters" or in this case, "Kanji", an ancient magic based upon the drawing of certain characters. They are later joined by Genta Umemori, a Mojikara prodigy and childhood friend of Takeru who had been secretly training himself as the sixth Shinkenger.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })As for the Super Sentai tradition of themes and motifs, Shinkenger picks up the Japanese Jidaigekinote Period dramas genre, drops it into a modern setting, and showed just how well awesome the concept can work, all the while keeping the theatricality intact. Also one to proudly take the stage is the Japanese culture: the Shinkengers live in the Shiba household, which is a feudal lord's mansion in present day, the monsters of the week are based on different Obake, and the Kanji used for fighting evil spirits just about anything, just for starters.note Please understand that all translations are by no means the ONLY way to translate the words in question, and if your sources of choice (Fansub or dictionaries) varies, it is likely not wrong - it us just chosen another wording. Please offer any alternate translations on the discussion pageAdvertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })This work has Crowning Moment pages for Awesome, Funny and Heartwarming. We're also working on a Character Sheet, and migrating character tropes over there. Aired alongside the Kamen Rider series Kamen Rider Decade, which it shared a crossover with, and then Kamen Rider Double in the Super Hero Time block.Has been adapted into Power Rangers Samurai, but... well, let's just say that the fans weren't as well receptive of that as they were of this, in part due to Disney's decision to air a recut version of the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers instead of adapting this on schedule. Many long-time Rangers fans became introduced to Sentai through this show from a desire to find a new show to watch in the same vein, and were less than impressed with the relatively direct remake afterwards.Shiba ClanThe Shinkengers Takeru Shiba / Shinken Red: The 18th and current head of the Shiba clan. Looks stern, but actually pretty nice; he'll try to hide it though. Later revealed to be a Body Double for the true 18th head, Kaoru. Ryunosuke Ikenami / Shinken Blue: A former kabuki actor. VERY dramatic and a very skilled swordsman. The Yes-Man to Takeru, and often played for comedy. Mako Shiraishi / Shinken Pink: A kindergarten teacher. Mature and levelheaded. Always count on her to comfort whoever's feeling down... but don't count on her cooking. Chiaki Tani / Shinken Green: The rebel to Takeru. Lax, and not a very good fighter, but a quick thinker who relies on unorthodox methods. Kotoha Hanaori / Shinken Yellow: The Chick/Cute Bruiser dual pack; a shy, quiet and a bit clumsy country girl. Her loyalty to Takeru rivals Ryunosuke's. Genta Umemori / Shinken Gold: Childhood friend of Takeru. The all-around sushi-themed Sixth Ranger who developed his own Origami and... also happens to be a Sushi chef. Self-taught Iaijutsu Practitioner and Lethal Joke Character. Kaoru Shiba / Princess Shinken Red: The true 18th head of the Shiba Clan, who appears late in the series. A stoic Cute Bruiser of few words. Eventually steps down and makes Takeru 19th lord by adopting him. Her appearance makes her the first female Red Ranger in Super Sentai history.Allies Hikoma Kusakabe: The Shiba household's retainer. Everyone calls him "Jii". Beside helping make sure the Shiba's traditional style Japanese mansion runs smoothly, he trains the Samurai in use of their mojikara and often oversees sword training and the like. He can be very nice and respectable, despite his strictness. Just don't go against him... The Kuroko: The Shiba household's servant crew, dressed as traditional Japanese stage hands - and as such, they expect to be ignored. Besides helping Jii maintain the Shiba's ancestral home, they serve as heralds for the Shinkengers, carrying the elaborate curtains and war drums that often accompany the Samurai's entrance. They can provide battle support, and often clear civilians from an area so the Samurai can focus on the battle at hand. DaiGoyo: A lantern brought to life through Genta's Mojikara. Acts as the Team Pet and can grow to Mecha scale, goyo de! The Sakakibara family: Descendants of peasants entrusted with containing Ushi Origami. The members we've seen are Hiro, who was instrumental in taming Ushi, and his grandfather. While they aren't Samurai, they have some remarkable skills with Mojikara. Toshizo Tanba: Kaoru's personal retainer who served her father, the previous head of the Shiba Clan. He is very stubborn, has No Indoor Voice, and prefers a strict adherence to tradition, often scolding anyone who suggests to subvert it even the slightest bit. Unsurprisingly, he isn't well liked by anyone, including his own "princess", which is how he addresses Kaoru. Tsukasa Kadoya/Kamen Rider Decade: Just a passing-through Kamen Rider who indirectly brought a problem to the Shinkenger worldnote in truth, said problem was caused Diend losing his gun to the Monster of the Week, Decade was nowhere near when it happened, in fact the very person who said it was Decade's fault is also out to kill him, so he's pretty biased and thus teams up with the Rangers in two episodes of his own seriesnote said episodes taking place around Acts 20-21 of Shinkenger, though he has a cameo disguised as a Kuroko in the Shinkenger episode leading into the crossover.Gedoushu Chimatsuri Dokoku: The Big Bad Boss. Lives on a Ghost Ship in the Sanzu river. Very irritable, and spends much of his time doing nothing but drinking sake. Usukawa Dayu: The Dragon. Can be seen playing a Shamisen Of Murder. Can be considered a Dark Chick also since she is the only regular female Gedoushu. Hone no Shitari: Mad Scientist and The Strategist. Looks suspisciously like Cthulhu. Rarely leaves the ship, and instead constantly makes plans to increase Sanzu River's water. Fuwa Juzo: An enigmatic Gedoushu swordsman whom the others consider a "stray". Loves fighting, and has a one-sided rivalry towards Takeru. Sujigarano Akumaro: An unusually polite Enigmatic Minion who surfaces after Dokoku's power boost; an expert schemer with a perpetual grin. Eventually turns Starscream after Dokoku's Phlebotinum Breakdown.

Retired Badass: Chiaki's dad is heavily implied to be a former Shinkenger and shows his skill at the end of the Act he appears in, by cutting down the remaining Gedoushuu with one of their own swords, while injured. The same with Mako's mother and Ryunosuke's father. Mako's mother was left paralyzed after the previous battle with Dokoku, and if Ryunosuke's father was the previous Shinken Blue, then he took 3 flaming arrows to the chest in the final battle.

Katanas Are Just Better: The Shinkenmarus. If a Shinkenger spins the black Hiden Disk, it transforms their Shinkenmaru into their personal weapon. Takeru: Rekka Daizantounote Blazing Great Slicing Sword. Normally a giant sword, but it can switch into its Ozutsu Mode when using all 5 of the main Shinkenger's Hiden Disks for its Finishing Move. Ryunosuke: Water Arrow Mako: Heaven Fan Chiaki: Wood Spear Kotoha: Land Slicer

Instant Expert: In contrast to some previous series, the trope is averted with the Shinkengers, having been trained all their lives to fight Gedoushu. In Act 36, Genta treats Kotoha's uncharacteristic request for curry rice as a challenge to be accepted - and does it so well that he gains a thriving new clientele.

Heroic BSoD: Genta in Act 28 gets scared of sushi of all things, direct reflex of being turned into sushi in the previous episode and almost eaten. The trauma is so big he can't even use the Sushi Changer, so he considers quitting the team. He only gets better because Jii force-feeds him, but he comes back in time to introduce DaiGoyo to his teammates.

Badass Adorable: Kotoha. Write her off as mere Moe fuel at your peril. Ironically, she's the character with minimum characterization compared to her teammates, perhaps on par with Gentanote Though his character has been compensated with so many achievements and antics since his appearance. After revealing more or less of the others' backgrounds, it'd be interesting to see her interaction with her sister. It seems she finally got it in Act 41.

Brainwashed and Crazy: Ryuunosuke in Act 9, complete with pseudo-Open the Iris effect. Takeru Shiba in the Goseiger vs. Shinkenger movie. The Uncanny Valley vibes and his vicious attacks make this example... unsettling to say the least.

Stealth Pun: A possible cross-language one: The Hiden Disks sounds really close to "Hidden Disks", which in turn can relate to the name "Secret/Mystery Disks". DaiKaiOh's entrance quotes are puns on different Kanji readings of its current "direction". DaiKaiOh East: "To! To! Higashi!!" DaiKaiOh West: "Ossha! Nishi!!" DaiKaiOh South: "Nanto! Minami!!" DaiKaiOh North: "Kitakitakitakita!!" Remember the "Freaky Friday" Flip? Now, think a little about it. The lion-riding lord got swapped with a Lucky Cat statue, the vassal with wind Mojikara became a fan, the sushi chef met his Ironic Hell, and the vassal with water Mojikara... well...

Episode 9 gives a Ranger Brainwashing episode, with, of course, Shinken Blue being the victim. It also serves to give us a reason why Takeru is the leader aside from the Law of Chromatic Superiority through Juzo's comments on Takeru's stance and fighting style, Takeru's victory over Ryunosuke and the risk he took in freeing him from the spell.

"Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: The six Shinkengers each sing their own theme songs (which in itself is a Sentai tradition), though they're never used in the show. Here's the list: Ryunosuke's theme, "Aonami Yonashi"note It should be no suprise that Ryunosuke got to sing his own theme. Hiroki Aiba was in The Prince of Tennis The Musical, after all.... Mako's theme, "Nadeshiko Shinken Hanafubuki". Chiaki's theme, "Shinken Days Never Give Up Dochu". Kotoha's theme, "Hannari Metcha Bushido Girl". Genta's theme, "Gold Ninjo Ipponjime". The only exception would be Takeru's theme, "Shinken Red Ippitsu Sojo". Tori Matsuzaka himself only says lines from the show, while a chorus of children sing for him.

Dokoku pulls off an impressive one at the end. He saves Dayu and repairs her shamisen in Act 40, throwing her int emotional turmoil. This ultimately culminates with her releasing the soul of the man who spurned her from it, filling the Sanzu to overflowing in one fell swoop. This also leaves Dayu with nothing left to live for, and thus she allows Dokoku to absorb her into him. The point of that exercise? Well, as a "stray", Dayu was a human who fell to Gedou. Absorbing her made Dokoku a "stray". And it's been shown that Gedou-specific seals don't fully work on strays. Thus, Dokoku becomes partially immune to the sealing character - which leaves the Shinkengers at a serious disadvantage.

Ironic Echo: Normally Ryuunosuke going "TONOOO!!!" goes hand in hand with another Funny Moment, but when he's torn between his duties to the Shiba lord and his friendship with Takeru towards the end, it turns into a cry of anguish.

Guns Are Useless: Averted completely. Once armed with rifles in Act 38, the mooks go from Cannon Fodder to an unstoppable army capable of bringing down the Shinkengers. The only thing kept that them from being wiped out was the new Mogyu Bazooka.

Ascended Fanboy: Richard Brown, a huge fan of the Shinkengers; not only did he boldly march into the battle as Shinken Brown, he even gets to pose with the team and helped them defeat the Monster of the Weeknote Just a pep talk, but it helped. Don't forget he also got to hold the team's BFG as it dealt the killing blow to the Monster of the Week's first form.

Mythology Gag

Mythology Gag: The beginning of the Daikai Shinken-Oh gattai sequence is taken straight from the Great Ikaros gattai sequence in Choujin Sentai Jetman. Act 27 has Shinken Pink Mako being turned into a table fan. MagiPink Houka could do this voluntarily. DaiGoyou's 10-Minute Retirement in Act 29 mirrors a similar incident with Smoky of Magiranger, who lives in a lamp. The place where he and Mako have their little chat is even the same place where Smoky and Urara had theirs. The team's roll call Catchphrase "Iza mairu!"? Carrigator from last year used it pretty often too. It helps that Carrigator's VA was used for the announcer for this series. Though Shinkenger is probably the first series to deploy Giant Mooks who are giant themselves, Gaiark had access to swarms of giant mook-controlled-mecha in the same concept. Act 36 has two: Kotoha's sudden interest in curry rice stems all the way from the original Yellow; and the MotW is a shark-based creature who spins rapidly and says "Sha-kiin!". He even does the pose. Due to its numerous "appendages", SamuraiHaOh really reminds of Tauzant. TenkuShinkenOh's finishing move is called Tenku Karatake Wari. Battle Fever Robo's is called Denkouken Karatake Wari. Both mechas are based on samurai. And then there's the Teamup Convertible, which bears a striking reseblance to a vehicle from Gekisou Sentai Carranger. Western viewers will know it as the Lightning Cruiser from Power Rangers Turbo. The beginning of the DaiKaiShinkenOh formation, involving DaiKaiOh and ShinkenOh standing like Back-to-Back Badasses, resembles that of the BusterOhrangerRoboformation. In the crossover movie, we get another look at Samurai World, and Saki and Hanto get hurled into Junk World a second time. Shinken-Oh's finisher has the same exact motions as Invincible Shogun's: A twirl of the sword in a circle with the right hand, followed by a two-handed diagonal slash.

Parental Abandonment: Takeru and Jii, except for the servants, are pretty much the only ones in the mansion at the start of the series, as Takeru's father was killed during a Gedoushuu raid on the estate. In Act 34, it was revealed that Mako's parents moved to Hawaii when she was around five as her mother, who was the former Shinken Pink, was crippled during Dokoku's raid on the Shiba Clan estate. Mako's grandmother wanted Mako to become the next ShinkenPink, forcing her father to leave her behind. Jii himself is guilty of this. His work with the Shiba household leaves him just one day a year for visiting his wife's grave and his daughter's family, and even then he's had to give it a miss several times. Kaoru's father, the true head of the Shiba Clan, died trying to seal away Dokoku. Kaoru's mother was supposedly still pregnant with Kaoru at the time of the raid, but it has not been confirmed whether or not she's still alive.

Limited Wardrobe: Quite unusual for a Super Sentai series, the trope is averted to near-completion this year. Let alone the "Team Jackets" with the same design and different colors, the Shinkengers actually switch through lots of outfits over the course. Juzo and Jii could be direct examples. But Juzo is a 200+ years old half-demonic swordsman without a cent; Jii doesn't have any excuses. And even he has at least two outfits. Both very traditional, but at least he's choosing between the beige and the blue one...

Awesome, but Impractical: Mojikara again. Sure, some Kanji can be drawn in the heat of battle, but what about Kanji that require 15 to 20 brush strokes? What's worse, the Kanji must be written with the correct stroke order. Averted with Genta's Electronic Mojikara. He's no good with a brush, so he made it that he could give power to characters that he texts on the Sushi Changer. And actually addressed in the final act where they produce a complicated Kanji by having each Ranger draw a different radical.

Chained Heat: Ryuunosuke and Chiaki in Act 37. Subverted in that they already work really well together under normal circumstances, but the stress of being stuck together causes them to clash more than normal. If this was done during the early Acts, then this would played straight as Ryunosuke did not approve of Chiaki's lax behavior and Chiaki hated how uptight Ryunosuke was with him. Character Development for both characters eased their tension until it was brought back during Act 37. Even then, it doesn't totally come out of left field.

But right from his first appearance, Akumaro is overtaking Juzo in that regard. The fact that we actually get to know a tad about Juzo might be at work here, and thus downplaying his mysterious aura.

comment
Face Doodling: Done in three different Acts all by Chiaki. In Act 10, after being fed up with Jii constantly reprimanding him, Chiaki takes out his Shodo Phone and leaves a giant black X on Jii's face. After Jii smacks him with his Paper Fan of Doom, Chiaki tries to give him a second mark. When Ryunosuke, Mako, and Kotoha attempt to intervene, they end up with giant black streaks across their cheeks. Then at the end of the act, Jii wakes up to find his face filled with random doodles, all provided by Chiaki. Act 27's infamous Neko Tononote "Lord Cat" scene, where Chiaki draws whiskers on Takeru's face while Takeru's soul is trapped in a Lucky Cat statue. Takeru was obviously not pleased. At the beginning of Act 31, Chiaki applies the Neko Tono whiskers again to Takeru as punishment for losing in their card game. Ryunosuke and Kotoha also have various marks on their faces either applied again by Chiaki or possibly Mako or Jii, whose faces remain clean.

So Okay, It's Average: In-Universe. This is everyone's opinion of Genta's sushi, which is pretty much a slap in the face to someone who wants to become a world famous sushi chef. Juzo is the only exception, and now he's dead. Just his luck... On the other hand, he can make one heck of a curry. Too bad he isn't interested on being a curry chef, despite the prospects. Yank the Dog's Chain: In Act 40, Genta finds out that he's been featured in a food critic's magazine and passes several copies out to everyone. Ryunosuke and Chiaki take a look at the article while Genta is out and find out that Genta's Gold Sushi cart was given five stars due to the rarity of sushi carts, but only two stars for taste. Poor poor Genta...

Magical Foreign Words: Averted, for the most part. All the Shinkenger's attacks are in Japanese. The only real Gratuitous English are the names of the vassals' weapons, and (strangely enough) late-season Game-Breaker items, like Super and Hyper longcoats and Mogyu Bazooka, though that at least was created in the modern day as opposed to feudal Japan.

Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_372bc105
comment
Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism: Yasuko Kobayashi seems to be tapping every mood her Signature Style has lead her to. This is actually ideal for this year's themes, and gives Shinkenger an interesting position among sentai: not the most cheery and light sentai, but not, by a long shot, the darkest entry, either. It truly takes its cues from the Jidaigeki tradition. The bitter moments, the moments the characters say "Oh, Crap!", are there so that their victory plays perfectly to the the optimistic, virtuous side of the tradition. The definite epic struggle against the Gedoushu and the Tear Jerkers it brings must be there, or the show's humor and up-beat character work wouldn't work as well.

Batman Gambit
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_38d02d44
comment
Batman Gambit: The whole Act 8. To elaborate, Takeru planned for Mako to get caught as a bride, then get revealed, prompting the Ayakashi to kidnap the bride again... only to have Ryunosuke POSE as the bride, then expected Mako to get threatened and reveal a false location of the brides, then just merely sends out shadows of his team to approach the false location while he uses Ryunosuke's information to get into the real location. Chiaki's plan in Act 27, which is to purposely get hit by the Ayakashi's tendrils so that Kotoha forces the Ayakashi and Chiaki to switch bodies and then force the Ayakashi to tell them how to quickly return everyone's souls to their proper bodies. Akumaro tries to pull off a seriously long term one revealed in Acts 42 and 43. His plan for Hell on Earth requires someone who is neither human nor Gedoshuu. So he finds Juzo and gives him Uramasa, only to reveal two centuries later that it contains the souls of his dead family, and that going through with his plan will release their souls. It qualifies as a Batman Gambit because it relied on Juzo caring about the souls of his loved ones. Unfortunately for Akumaro, it turns out he doesn't.

Actor Allusion
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_392372f9
comment
Actor Allusion: The voice actor from GaoGaiGar, as a monster with a golden lion head on his chest. Romi Park's previous role in the equally Jidaigeki-inspired Samurai 7 has her character forming an attachment to someone called Kyuuzo. Here, it's someone called Juuzo. For added points, 'kyu' and 'juu' translate into 'nine' and 'ten'. Ryuunosuke's worst fear is, oddly, cacti. Ironically, one of Aiba's previous roles cast him as Fuji Shuusuke in The Prince of Tennis musicals, a character who loves cacti and owns quite a number of them.

Character Development
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_3b113b7
comment
If this was done during the early Acts, then this would played straight as Ryunosuke did not approve of Chiaki's lax behavior and Chiaki hated how uptight Ryunosuke was with him. Character Development for both characters eased their tension until it was brought back during Act 37. Even then, it doesn't totally come out of left field.

Bad Boss
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_3cb1d38d
comment
Bad Boss: Dokoku. At full steam 24/7, does absolutely nothing but drink sake all day, doesn't give a damn about his subordinates and can turn outright murderous on a whim. Pretty much the worst Super Sentai boss in recent years, which, in comparison, makes Rio look like a Benevolent Boss and the Gaiarc Ministers (except for Yogoshimacritein), just pure saintsnote They are antagonists, but at least they take good care of their monsters. On the other hand, Dokoku doesn't play the trope straight. True, he has a well earned reputation for literally terminating his minions on a whim, but, if he thinks you're of even the slightest use to him, he'll let you get away with murder. Literally! If you can come up with the silliest, most nonsensical plan to raise the level of the Sanzu River by even a half-centimeter, he'll send the Nanashi Renju and a Gedoshu of the Week to help you. And even if you do screw up, Shitari and Akomaru have both shown that Dokoku is not immune to grovelling, flattery or even simple logic. And Dayu found out that when Dokoku forgives you, all is forgiven. *shakes fist*

Strictly Formula
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_3f1aadeb
comment
Strictly Formula: Taking examples of recurring elements from the main Super Sentai page: Bride-attacking Episode: Act 8; Mako and Ryuunosuke posing as the bride. This episode also serves as Foreshadowing for Dayuu's motivations and Backstory. And we're just getting started. Episode 9 gives a Ranger Brainwashing episode, with, of course, Shinken Blue being the victim. It also serves to give us a reason why Takeru is the leader aside from the Law of Chromatic Superiority through Juzo's comments on Takeru's stance and fighting style, Takeru's victory over Ryunosuke and the risk he took in freeing him from the spell. Episode 10, new combination: DaiTenkuu Gattai, which can fly. The episode also serves to provide both Chiaki and Jii with character development. Villains duplicating heroes: Act 15; an Ayakashi posing as Chiaki to alienate him and strike at the heroes when their guard is down. Episode 17, Sixth Ranger joins: EXACTLY when Genta makes his debut. Kaoru's much later appearance as an 11th-Hour Ranger is certainly a lot less common, and thus doesn't count. Episode 20, new Humongous Mecha: Genta introduces us to DaiKaiOh. The episode also serves as an indicator of how far the heroes have come as true companions, as well as cementing Genta's place in the team even further. Rangers forced into another body: Act 27; the Ayakashi with "Soul-switch" ability. In a minor variation, the events of the episode do have some consequence that serves as plot device for the next episode (and lead to the creation of a recurring character) rather than the usual shrug off. The next episode also serves as a partial deconstruction due to Genta's trauma, though it's mostly Played for Laughs. Around Episode 30, new stronger enemy: Not really Act 30, but Act 26 introduces Akumaro, perhaps the second most powerful of the Gedoushu. He also brings with him his own, stronger Ayakashi, thus raising the stakes even further. He serves as a Foil for Dokoku in a Red Oni,Blue Oni relationship. His ultimate goal also differs greatly from his supposed master, which is also a recurring element in Sentai. Monster disables every rangers except one, who finishes it off: Act 41; Kotoha defeating a monster which drove all other Shinkengers into a crazed state of hunger and thirst, while Takeru was out of commission after being smacked down by Dokoku in the previous episode.This serves as Character Development for Kotoha, since she now has to take matters into her own hands after being saved by her comrades occasionally, such as when she had her soul stolen. There's also her getting over her Heroic Self-Deprecation and moving Takeru out of his Ineffectual Loner stage. Heroes Brought Down to Normal: Act 49; While they don't lose the ability to transform, Dokoku's sheer power has them revert back to normal when they kill him the first time. They spend a good portion of the finale without transforming including part of the final battle against Mooks, the role call, and even the final mecha battle. This is Justified by the Shinkengers wanting to conserve as much Mojikara as possible. This is perhaps the greatest evidence there is to their Determinator status. For the most part, Shinkenger seems to play with these recurring plot points, giving them a purpose beyond just filler, tradition and Merchandise-Driven demands, usually in the form of Character Development. Appropriate, given this season's heavy emphasis on such development.

Ungrateful Bastard: Kyoryu Origami, Ushi Origami, and the Inroumaru, powerful weapons that the previous Shinkengers could not obtain would not have existed were it not for Takeru and Genta. So what does Tanba do in return? He calls Takeru a fake lord living a lie and Genta a mere sushi chef who cannot be a samurai. In contrast, Kaoru, Tanba's master and the true lord of the Shiba Clan, is actually quite grateful for all their hard work and keeps telling Tanba that she would not be here if it weren't for them. Thankfully, he grows out of it by the finale.

Bittersweet Ending: The series ends with Dokoku gone for good and the Sanzu River receding back into the Underworld. However, the Vassals all go their separate ways afterwards, leaving Takeru by himself as Kaoru tasks him with keeping up the fight against the Gedoshuu. The series caps off with Takeru wondering what in the world to do now, dismissing Jii's suggestions of hobbies and thinking of his friends. Though on a more hopeful note, the narrator teases that the Shinkengers will meet again...

Ryunosuke. Again and again, and again, and... After Act 7, while he does have occasional Butt-Monkey moments, he has since shown quite a lot of development and competence.

Paper-Thin Disguise: The Movie pulled this off audaciously: To infiltrate a shrine located within enemy ranks, the team walked into the Nanashi troops in makeshift Nanashi costumes — to be specific, just "headpiece" and "armor" (all made of plastic, paper, and fabric with their faces plainly visible), by Ryunosuke and Kotoha's idea — while occasionally shouting "Na!". The audacious part is, it worked without a hitch. The "get the Nanashi blind stinking drunk" part may have helped there.

Trash the Set: The mecha cockpit in the finale. They started with Samurai Ha-Oh, and kept taking hits which took the gattai to a weaker stage - damaging the cockpit in the process. They ended up with only Shinken-Oh - so why was Genta's pedestal still there, when both of his Origami were gone? Bellisario's Maxim and Ruleof Cool for Genta staying. The producers probably just didn't want to exclude him from the battle against the Final Boss.

Cast from Hit Points: Shitari actually pulls this off by infusing a Gedoushu with half of his own life force to enable it to gain a third life (which manifests as a serpentine energy beast). Mojikara, in a less life-threatening way. Using too much of it in too short a time can lead to physical exhaustion. Chinomanako loses one of his two lives when he transforms into Chinomanako Diend.

That's just one of what Shiba clan has in store... Also of note is the Ushi Origami: supposedly older than the entire Shinkenger line, it has dual-gattling cannons installed on it. The first generation of Shinkengers used wooden cellphones 500 years ago.

Intercontinuity Crossover: The most a Super Sentai series can cross over with is its predecessor and successor, but Shinkenger also crosses over with its sister show, Kamen Rider Decade. And it's canon for both.

Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_5beef860
comment
Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: In Act 28, much of the group have shown to have a phobia to something; boiled and dried potato for Mako, Natto for Kotoha and cacti for Ryunosuke. What do you think freaks out Takeru, the guy who battled a horde of hellspawn without batting an eyelid, most? The same "Ghost House" attraction that screwed up his childhood. He outright faints afterwards. Chiaki seems to be an exception from the "demonstrations" for some reason. They're all trying to help Genta overcome the Sushi phobia he got in the previous episode, rendering him unable to transform. Of course, who would have thought that all he needed to do was to eat the friggin' thing?!

Really 700 Years Old
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_5c5ac0e2
comment
Juzo and Jii could be direct examples. But Juzo is a 200+ years old half-demonic swordsman without a cent; Jii doesn't have any excuses. And even he has at least two outfits. Both very traditional, but at least he's choosing between the beige and the blue one...

Bare-Handed Blade Block
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_5c91635a
comment
Barehanded Blade Block: Act 15 involves Chiaki trying to master this though a bit of MacGyvering - tying a training sword to a tree and then swinging it around once and trying to stop it. DaiGoyou does this in his debut - justified as he actually has steel hands. Repeated by Genta in Act 33, as all the Shinkengers are fighting untransformed. Notable as he was the only one unarmed, as the others still all had their swords.

Crossdresser
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_5e4fa749
comment
Crossdresser: Ryunosuke in Act 8, albeit on ground of mission demands. He disguised as a bride to be kidnapped, and sure enough, taken all the way to the captive place, without being noticed by any one of his captors. Apparently Dayu got confident after exposing the decoy bride as Mako, and didn't think to inspect the "real" bride after that. He does mention that this is thanks to the part of playing as women in Kabuki Theatre. But he just had to say "I'm still very unskilled"... ...◊ The Special Act takes it even further with all six Rangers in drag. Takeru and Chiaki are surprisingly effective as women.

Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Genta. Oh god, Genta... At first blush, you may think he's a Manchild; but he and Takeru take things with the same degree of gravitas under Genta's hammy exterior, and he's perfectly able to run his cart and maintain regulars. But the ears come in when you realize what Shinken Gold does with mojikara. Even Jii is impressed.

Brought Down to Normal
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_66ea7e5c
comment
Heroes Brought Down to Normal: Act 49; While they don't lose the ability to transform, Dokoku's sheer power has them revert back to normal when they kill him the first time. They spend a good portion of the finale without transforming including part of the final battle against Mooks, the role call, and even the final mecha battle. This is Justified by the Shinkengers wanting to conserve as much Mojikara as possible. This is perhaps the greatest evidence there is to their Determinator status.

Chewing the Scenery: "Tonooooooo!!" Genta's "formal introduction" to Takeru - all in feudal Japanese attire, complete with an accent. Chiaki cracks up on the spot; Takeru has to hurry to the backyard to laugh. Act 36: "Hey you... Let me make one thing clear. I am... a sushi seller!" How can you not feed Aiba Hiroki (Ryunosuke) or Sohma Keisuke (Genta) on scenery? Richard Brown. "Maaaaairuuuuuuuu!" Dayu: "Even in your final moments you choose her over me?" Little known fact: the contract for Matsuzawa Kazuyuki (Tanba) stipulated that he was to be fed at least one set every day.

The first time itself takes on different feeling and meaning as the series progressed. By the time Jii echoes it in the last arc, it help bring the show full circle.

comment
Meaningful Name: The series title itself is interesting; "Shinkenger" is a portmanteau of "Shinken" and "Ranger". "Shinken"note "True sword" refers to both a Japanese sword used in real combat, as opposed to those used for various types of practice, as well as having a more modern meaning "Seriousness/Wholeheartedness"; it's use in the ending theme is often translated as "earnestness". Both meanings are reflected by the show. Thanks to the wordplay possibility of Japanesenote If a lone Katakana or Hiragana syllable is to be related to a Kanji, pretty much any Kanji in its range of sensibility counts, generally, SamuraiHaOh marginally passes here. Not only the strongest weapon in the Shinkengers' possession, one possible translation of its namenote Officially written in all-Hiragana turns up as "Samurai Destroyernote "Hakai"/"Destruction" King". Now that is one mecha you don't wanna mess with... For that matter, even the bad guys get into this. Chimatsuri Doukoku: "Bloodbath Wailing" Usukawa Dayu: "Thin-skinned Courtesan" Hone no Shitari: "Triumphant Bones" Fuwa Juzou: "Disembowling Ten Organs" Sujigarano Akumaro: "Sinewy-Husked Evil One" Aburame Manpuku: "Greasy Eye, Full Stomach"

Then in Act 25, it was revealed that Dayu was once a woman named Usuyuki who was obsessed with a man who could never love her back, so she decided to crash into the man's wedding and set the place on fire. When she realized that he wouldn't love her back even in death, Usuyuki's soul was corrupted, turning her into Dayu. The man she loved was transformed into her Instrument of Murder.

Ocular Gushers: If this series is Anime, Ryunosuke's teary moments will definitely end in these. The only inhibition is that it's impossible to emulate in live-action. An indication is his eyes whenever he's in "Emotional" mode; his irises widen nearly into a puppy-dog eyenote Check Act 2 for the biggest examples, and his voice "rolls up". His actor deserves credit here too.

Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Usually in the teamup specials, in the main battle, the rangers split up into groups corresponding with their color, ranking, or gender. In the Go-onger special, this is averted; aside from pairing Takeru with Sousuke and Genta with Hiroto, the groupings aren't done as such. Instead, they're separated through the groups that met as the movie went on. The full entourage hadn't been together before the big team transformation and roll call.

Villain On A Bus: Wow, the Nanashi Rifle Squads are awesome! Guess they'll give the Shinkengers the near-endgame challenge. Wait... why aren't they in the next Act? It's probably because Akumaro was the one leading the Nanashi after that Act and Akumaro was not very fond of the Rifle Squad. And then two Acts later, Dokoku is put on a bloody bus trip to the bottom of the Sanzu River, after spending 40 Acts of doing nothing.

When Kaoru takes over as the true lord, the initial Phrase Catcher is replaced with either "Gedoushu, that's as far as you go." or "Gedoushu, do not make these civilians suffer anymore!"

Passing the Torch: Kaoru steps down as lord and makes Takeru the 19th head of the Shiba Clan by adopting him. Shown in flashback when Takeru's father hands him the Origami and tells him point-blank, "You are now ShinkenRed!"

Duel to the Death: The sole reason Juzo has his eyes on Takeru. They finally got down to it in Acts 46 and 47, and most intensely in the whole series. Even Takeru's fighting was frantic and not as collected as in previous battles.

This even extends to the villains. The main baddies are each based on one of the Shichi Fukujin (Seven Lucky Gods), the Monsters of the Week are based on youkai, and their home is the Sanzu River, which the dead must cross to reach the Underworld in Japanese belief.

Make My Monster Grow: All Monsters Of The Week have two lives. Once their first life is down, they return to life again in giant form. On the other hand, the heroes have handheld mecha that grow to giant size and mecha that starts out giant sized. Of special note is that Genta, despite being the self-taught outsider, has built two mecha able to grow huge (Ebi and DaiGoyou).

Signature Style

Signature Style: The lead writer for Shinkenger is the same one from Kamen Rider Den-O, Yasuko Kobayashi. It seems she brought the humor which made Den-O stand out in the Rider francise; particularly the "true companions" feel of the group. But do note that Kobayashi did several Darker and Edgier scripts as a lead writer, including but not limited to: Ryuki, Timeranger, Witchblade, Casshern Sins and Blassreiter. It shows in the Wham Episodes (see further down the page). Another facet of Kobayashi's style is her use of unconventional antagonists; Kai who wants to bring back his timeline, Shiro whose plan all along is to bring back his sister, and here, Juzo who just wants to fight and fight, and Dayu, a Yandere dead-set on preserving her one-sided love.

Mons: The Origami... when not serving as Mecha By Any Other Name. One of the show's favorite "idle moment" shots is to show a Shinkenger playing with or giving attention to their Origami. You see hints of Takeru's softer side when he's sitting with Shishi Origami, and Genta often chatters with Ika and Ebi, whom he has affectinatally named his Ika-chan and Ebizou respectively. Mako and Chiaki's Origami even "play" fight while they talk about Takeru in Act 12. Mako basically sends Kame after Kuma so Chiaki won't distract himself from the talk playing with his "pet bear". Further, there are times a single Origami or group of them is used to attack in their "mons" form, often as the opening salvo in a Shinkenger beatdown.

Too Long; Didn't Dub: The fansubs by TV Nihon are notorious for this kind of thing.

In their defense, a lot of the terms used really don't translate well and all the Gratuitous Japanese does fit the Jidaigeki theme of the show.

Refusal of the Call
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_87b8f581
comment
Refusal of the Call: A recurring theme amongst the cast is that none of them want to be Shinkenger: Takeru is bound by obligation and hates putting others at risk; Ryunosuke and Mako have to put their own dreams on hold; Kotoha is a replacement for her sister and doesn't view herself as worthy of the position; and Chiaki is fiercely independent. This is fairly consistent with the idea of bushido that Samurai were said to follow, which stressed honor and duty above all else.

Day of the Week Name
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_87c0c782
comment
Day of the Week Name: Instead of their names, four of the group interestingly have their elemental Kanji related to four days of the week: Takeru (Tuesdaynote Kayoubi, "Ka" meaning "Fire"), Ryunosuke (Wednesdaynote Suiyoubi, "Sui" meaning "Water"), Chiaki (Thursdaynote Mokuyoubi, "Moku" meaning "Wood" and using the same kanji as "tree") and Kotoha (Saturdaynote Doyoubi, "Do" meaning "Land"). Since Fridaynote Kinyoubi uses the Kanji "Gold"note "Kin", Genta is arguably a distant connection despite "Light"/"Hikari" being his Kanji. If you don't mind a bit of stretching, you can also relate Mako's "Heaven/Sky" with Sundaynote Nichiyoubi, "Nichi/Hi" meaning "Sun" or "Day" and Mondaynote Getsuyoubi, "Getsu" meaning "Moon".

Designated Girl Fight: Set up well between Dayu and Mako. While in their first fight, Ryunosuke was there at first and the others join in, after Act 25 and sharing Dayu's dream of her fall, Mako seems drawn to Dayu in a fight. This seems to echo Takeru and Juzo's relationship - the two are just similar enough for Dayu to draw Mako to her.

Retraux: Quite possibly a major motive behind the series; from the Shiba clan mansion's designnote Which did belong to a real Japanese clan to the Shinkengers' daily lives, like using brushes instead of pensnote Brushes do look more dramatic and theatric than modern pens though or having dinner sitting on the floor with very low tables.

Small Girl, Big Gun: Kaoru. The Rekka Daizantou seems especially bigger when she holds it. And of course, she also plays the trope straight in Act 45 with the Mogyu Bazooka. But overall, most of her weapons can qualify her to this trope, because if this was an Anime, she'd likely be presented as a much younger character. In the same idea, Kotoha as well; particularly in Act 41 where she gets to wield the Mogyu Bazooka.

As a big theme of the show is depiction of being a samurai as a journey, many of the Crowning Moments Of Awesome involve this. Genta. His event happened off-screen, but comparing his flashbacks, he's one hell of a fighter now, unlike the little kid he was back then. In the same vein, Takeru. Once a scared little pants-wetter; now the badass Lord of the Shinkengers.

What Measure Is a Non-Human?
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_9c45b5a2
comment
What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Juzo; after revelation of his human form and spending most of the time in it, he's shown in a more sympathetic light than other villains. Although the revelation later shows that he doesn't really deserve it. Same goes for Dayu, but on a smaller scale because she's seen as a human only in a flashback, and even at that, a really dark silhouette. At times, it makes some of the down right obsessive and horrible things they do even worse. And then you start to sympathise again... Yasuko Kobayashi is really good at reminding you of, and subverting or averting expectations caused by the Sorting Algorithm of Tropes index.

Foreshadowing
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_9d12bbc1
comment
Foreshadowing: As shocking as Act 44's revelation seems, the reveal was foreshadowed as early as Act 6note When the Ayakashi called Takeru a "liar", possibly as early as Act 1note Ryunosuke: "I had no idea you were a lady, my lord!", and has been debated within the fandom for quite some time. The idea that the true lord is a lady, though, was not as expected. A further hint is given when you pay close attention to the stories of what happened the night of Dokoku's raid on the Shiba manor: Takeru's father died right after giving him the Origami inside a burning building, riddled with arrows in his back. However, it is clearly shown in another flashback that the Shiba head fell in battle outside after casting the sealing character on Dokoku.note In other words, Takeru's father and the previous Shiba head are not the same person.

Interestingly, Dayu herself does something like this with her shamisen and its hidden kodachi in Act 8, and later 25, which goes straight into Fridge Logic territory as that's the ep where we learn what, or rather who the instrument is made from.

For the most part, Shinkenger seems to play with these recurring plot points, giving them a purpose beyond just filler, tradition and Merchandise-Driven demands, usually in the form of Character Development. Appropriate, given this season's heavy emphasis on such development.

Mood Whiplash: Act 44 starts out as a lighthearted New Year's episode, with many Funny and Heartwarming moments. Then everything goes straight to hell with the appearance of the Ayakashi Yomotsugari and the reveal that Takeru was a Body Double for Kaoru all this time. In a downplayed example, Act 43 is a fairly somber episode running on Nightmare Fuel. It ends fairly cheerfully, with the team decorating the mansion for Christmas with Jii and the Kuroko.

Oh, Crap!: Any time Mako decides to cook, this strikes everyone who learns about it, except Kotoha. In Act 36, a particularly tough MotW spins like a hurricane, with enough power to enough to break Chiaki's guard and send him sliding across the ground. Then Chiaki gets up and realises his sword is broken. On the other hand, the Shinkengers have a habit of of making the Ayakashi and Dokoku's lieutenants feel like saying this whenever the Samurai-tachi pull out all the stops. There's one in the second last episode, where the Crevice Sensor goes off, but instead of releasing one reed with the location of the Gedoushu, it practically empties itself. The Gedoushu are literally EVERYWHERE.

All for Nothing: The plan of the 17th Shiba head, Kaoru's father. He had sacrificed himself to temporarily seal Dokoku and established a decoy for his family to give his daughter enough time to perfect the sealing character, only for it all to be for naught when Dokoku gained an immunity to the seal by absorbing a dying Dayuu. In addition to all of Kaoru's training going to waste, Dokoku learns about her existence, negating all of Takeru's actions as her decoy, including lying to his friends. Tanba, Kaoru's retainer, outright said that the plan was a complete failure.

Loophole Abuse: How Takeru becomes the 19th head of the Shiba Clan. The previous lord relinquishes their title to their child. Said child does not necessarily have to blood related as Kaoru mentions that adoption is an option when there is no heir. There is also no rule that says Kaoru's child can't be older than her... Played for Laughs in episode 3. Chiaki was told to write 500 sheets in kanji characters before afternoon. He did it by writing characters that read "500 sheets" on a piece of paper. How Dokoku withstands the sealing character. By taking a half-human into himself, he has made himself part human, thus weakening the character's ability to restrain him.note During a fight with Juzo, it was shown that Ayakashi that are part human have a resistence to seals

Around Episode 30, new stronger enemy: Not really Act 30, but Act 26 introduces Akumaro, perhaps the second most powerful of the Gedoushu. He also brings with him his own, stronger Ayakashi, thus raising the stakes even further. He serves as a Foil for Dokoku in a Red Oni,Blue Oni relationship. His ultimate goal also differs greatly from his supposed master, which is also a recurring element in Sentai.

In Act 24, Juzo explains that he gave up the honorable life of bushido simply because it was much more fun killing people and testing his blade against strong opponents. When he came into contact with a deadly disease and realized that the pleasure he got from killing people would be gone, he became a Gedoushu so he could be immortal. This is expanded further in Acts 42 and 43. His lover tried to stop him from becoming a Blood Knight, but he refused and left. Akumaro then appeared and killed his lover and crafted her soul in the Uramasa. Akumaro then gave Uramasa to Juzo, who then continued to kill, not knowing that he had become Akumaro's pawn.

Transformation Is a Free Action: By proxy, we have ShinkenYellow stopping an attack by the Monster of the Week in #41: she creates a brick wall to do this by writing the kanji for wall, while he spits sand at her, at a speed that would most certainly be fast enough to hit her before finishing a 16-stroke kanji (壁).

Berserk Button: Go ahead. Put Kotoha in mortal danger. Should work out fine with the rest of the Samurai. A comical example is Ryunosuke's attachment to his parents; call him "Faza-kon"note "Father complex" or "Maza-kon"note "Mother complex" and he'll be fired up in seconds. Go ahead. Ruin Akumaro's 200-year plan for Hell on Earth. But don't say I didn't warn you...

Rookie Red Ranger: Zigzagged with Kaoru, who fights as well as Takeru does despite joining up towards the end of the series. Justified in that she possibly spent much of her time training and mastering the sealing character while Takeru was acting as the lord. On the other hand, she serves as a slight deconstruction of this trope. Kaoru quickly learns that her stepping in and taking over just like that crippled the existing team's already established and well-built dynamics and morale. Real lord or no, she was not suited to be the leader of this team that have formed around Takeru's leadership, not hers. Her Jerkass retainer being even more of a stickler for tradition than her rubbing it in Takeru's face, as well as kicking Genta off the team did not help at all. Thus, she eventually pulls strings to have Takeru reinstated as leader AND as a true heir of the Shiba clan via adoption, as well as getting Genta's forgiveness and respect, and putting him back on the team.

True Companions: Almost against their will, but that's somewhat implicit in the trope. Takeru, especially, did not want to risk the others in the beginning; threaten them later in the season and here comes the Fire. And not just him. Act 20 cements it for the core six; and Act 38 removes any doubts about Jii and the Kuroko being merely servants. Hurt any one related to the Shiba clan, and you invite your own world of hurt. They didn't survive the last 4~5 centuries without any capabilities.

Break His Heart to Save Him: In Act 22, a rich heir named Yoshibou falls in love with Kotoha for her polite and selfless nature. When a Ayakashi bonds itself to Yoshibou to feed on his feelings, Kotoha shatters his image or her by hitting Takeru (disguised as her butler) and shouting that she "is losing her chance to marry a rich man." Yoshibou's heartbreak forces the Ayakashi out of hiding.

comment
Plan B Resolution: Throughout the series, it looked like the only way to defeat Dokoku for good was through the sealing character of the Shiba Head, with it being the reason for the 17th head's plan. Unfortunately, when Kaoru uses the sealing character on Dokoku in the penultimate episode, he was able to shrug it off due to gaining immunity from absorbing Dayu. As such, it looked like nothing could stop him now, but the Shinkenger refused to give up and ended up taking him down in Defeat Equals Explosion fashion.

Averted in Act 2; after vanquishing the Monster of the Week, Ryunosuke is overly repentant for doubting Takeru's leadership and vows to punish himself accordingly. He then begins to strip. Kotoha begs him to stop, and Chiaki asks Mako, "He's not going to...?" and makes slashing motions across his stomach. Ryunosuke's self-imposed punishment turns out to be making himself stand shirtless under the freezing waters of a waterfall, screaming apologies to his lord.

Informed Ability: In Act 9, we are told that Ryunosuke performs better in training while Takeru does better in actual battle. Unfortunately, the opening act of the episode shows Takeru winning their first training match, and then fighting Ryunosuke to a draw.note Specifically, they say that Ryunosuke is more technically proficient, while Takeru is better at improvising during battle.

What do you think freaks out Takeru, the guy who battled a horde of hellspawn without batting an eyelid, most? The same "Ghost House" attraction that screwed up his childhood. He outright faints afterwards. Chiaki seems to be an exception from the "demonstrations" for some reason.

Yamato Nadeshiko: Though not in a great deal, Kotoha shows those signs from time to time. As of Act 4, this is officially the dream of Mako; but with cooking skills like that, she still has a long way to go.

Chiaki's plan in Act 27, which is to purposely get hit by the Ayakashi's tendrils so that Kotoha forces the Ayakashi and Chiaki to switch bodies and then force the Ayakashi to tell them how to quickly return everyone's souls to their proper bodies.

You Are Not Alone: In Act 47, the other Shinkengers show up just in time to help pull Takeru out of the spiral into Gedou that Juzo is trying to send him to. With Juzo defeated, they reaffirm how dedicated to him they are, both as friends and vassals, causing him to break down in tears.

Act 37 opens with Chiaki playing a game in his Shodo Phone, although this isn't much of a surprise considering that most cellphone-based Transformation Trinkets have typical cellphone functions. In Act 27, Chiaki uses the camera on his Shodo Phone to take a picture of Neko Takeru. The Shodo Phone's brush mode, however, deserves mention as when it is not used for Mojikara, it acts as a normal calligraphy brush. Chiaki often uses it to vandalize someone's face.

Ship Tease
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_dcb9c541
comment
Ship Tease: Is it just me, or Chiaki and Kotoha have been getting a lot of "moments" together these days? Ryunosuke and Mako too, even as early as Act 4. Heck, they even sleep together under the same blanket. At the end of the Act, however, Mako personally sank that ship, and the incident was never mentioned again. As for Takeru, Kobayashi seems to have a habit of teasing shippers about whether or not he'll end up with Makonote Act 19 & 39-40 or Kotohanote Act 22 & 40-41 who, as mentioned above, is also spending a lot of time with Chiaki. In the end, Takeru ended up with neither; Kotoha went back home to Kyoto and Mako left to join her parents in Hawaii. Genta and Kaoru is getting quite popular after Act 47 when Genta, after hearing Kaoru say that she felt sorry about her sudden appearance causing trouble to Takeru and the rest, says that she's a nice princess. She and Genta also spend the rest of the Act together piloting DaiKaiShinkenOh.

Start of Darkness
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_e0040f41
comment
Start of Darkness: Both Juzo and Dayu's pasts in Acts 24 and 25. In Act 24, Juzo explains that he gave up the honorable life of bushido simply because it was much more fun killing people and testing his blade against strong opponents. When he came into contact with a deadly disease and realized that the pleasure he got from killing people would be gone, he became a Gedoushu so he could be immortal. This is expanded further in Acts 42 and 43. His lover tried to stop him from becoming a Blood Knight, but he refused and left. Akumaro then appeared and killed his lover and crafted her soul in the Uramasa. Akumaro then gave Uramasa to Juzo, who then continued to kill, not knowing that he had become Akumaro's pawn. Then in Act 25, it was revealed that Dayu was once a woman named Usuyuki who was obsessed with a man who could never love her back, so she decided to crash into the man's wedding and set the place on fire. When she realized that he wouldn't love her back even in death, Usuyuki's soul was corrupted, turning her into Dayu. The man she loved was transformed into her Instrument of Murder.

Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Mako. This is very prevalent during Act 13, whereas after telling Kotoha that she never had a childhood like any normal girl, Kotoha tells her that it's okay to cry, and cry she does, in Kotoha's hug. Also, as Ryu-san can tell you, she doesn't do the excessive pampering - in fact, she doesn't hesitate to call her lord on his tsuntsun act while sparing with him. She tries to find the fastest, most pratical way to fix things... usually.

comment
Powered by a Forsaken Child: Uramasa, Juzo's sword, was forged from the souls of his family, whose cries for him to cease his Blood Knight tendencies were misinterpreted by Juzo as a bloodlust. Also, Dayu's shamisen, which is the one thing keeping her "alive," has the soul of her unrequited crush trapped within. One of the wedges that Akumaro creates is formed from the tears of kidnapped children. One of Shitari's plans for bringing the Sanzu into our world involved ritualistically murdering 9 young girls.

Kotoha begs him to stop, and Chiaki asks Mako, "He's not going to...?" and makes slashing motions across his stomach. Ryunosuke's self-imposed punishment turns out to be making himself stand shirtless under the freezing waters of a waterfall, screaming apologies to his lord.

And then two Acts later, Dokoku is put on a bloody bus trip to the bottom of the Sanzu River, after spending 40 Acts of doing nothing.

Evil Plan
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_f2d8e3c2
comment
Evil Plan: The various plots across the fifteen Acts since his appearance? Having Juzo and Dayu work for him in exchange for Uramasa and Dayu's Shamisen? They were all instrumental in his true goal: To create Hell on Earth. Dokoku pulls off an impressive one at the end. He saves Dayu and repairs her shamisen in Act 40, throwing her int emotional turmoil. This ultimately culminates with her releasing the soul of the man who spurned her from it, filling the Sanzu to overflowing in one fell swoop. This also leaves Dayu with nothing left to live for, and thus she allows Dokoku to absorb her into him. The point of that exercise? Well, as a "stray", Dayu was a human who fell to Gedou. Absorbing her made Dokoku a "stray". And it's been shown that Gedou-specific seals don't fully work on strays. Thus, Dokoku becomes partially immune to the sealing character - which leaves the Shinkengers at a serious disadvantage.

Product Placement: Chiaki loves playing Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellionnote Bandai has the license to produce Super Sentai merchandise. Namco develops the Tekken series. The two companies merged to form Namco Bandai in 2005.

Weapon of Choice
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_f6ec1b9
comment
Weapon of Choice Katanas Are Just Better: The Shinkenmarus. If a Shinkenger spins the black Hiden Disk, it transforms their Shinkenmaru into their personal weapon. Takeru: Rekka Daizantounote Blazing Great Slicing Sword. Normally a giant sword, but it can switch into its Ozutsu Mode when using all 5 of the main Shinkenger's Hiden Disks for its Finishing Move. Ryunosuke: Water Arrow Mako: Heaven Fan Chiaki: Wood Spear Kotoha: Land Slicer Genta: Sakanamaru & DaiGoyo.note His weapons aren't strange, but unorthodox enough not to fit in the Weapon of Choice page. Also, while DaiGoyo comes with a Jutte, DaiGoyo himself is used as a shield. Hyper Shinkenger: Kyoryumaru Super Shinkenger: Mogyu Bazooka

 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_f8600b
comment
Cool Big Sis/Onee-sama: Mako is stern enough towards the boys, but she seems to sympathize with Kotoha, who in turn idolizes her. Even Chiaki calls her 'Nee-san'. She is also very fond of giving Cooldown Hugs to anyone who's in need of comforting, but that doesn't mean she's attracted to that person; once you're fixed, she'll leave you alone, as Ryunosuke learned about it the hard way.

RunningGag
 Samurai Sentai Shinkenger / int_f9f2c33
comment
Running Gag: Any reason why Takeru keeps taking Kotoha's Shinkenmaru whenever he's in need of an extra one? Ship Tease? Possibly. Also, it's important that if you're going to introduce something, especially in prelude to a Crowning Moment of some kind, that you be brief and to the point; otherwise, you may find that— Mako's cooking. While it's lead to a number of character moments, the cooking itself can lead to some damn funny ones. Whenever Tanba starts acting like a Jerkass, Kaoru is always the one shutting him up, often times with a fan though she has displayed other methods...

Theme Naming: Looking at the translations of major Gedoushu characters' names, it's safe to say they have a Theme going on: Body organs. Charming... Also the Ayakashi's names all have five syllables.
