She could also be very emotional, for example when the Vyram turned her childhood teddy bear into a monster and when her love interest Dan was killed after he risks his life to fight Radiguet inside Jet Garuda in order to save the Jetmen. She was best friends with her singing partner Kyoko and good friends with her fellow Jetmen especially Kaori and Raita.

Transformation and Roll Call

Ranger Key

The Blue Swallow Ranger Key.

Mobilates' Gokai Change announcement[src]

The Blue Swallow Ranger Key (ブルースワローレンジャーキー Burū Suwarō Renjā Kī) is Ako's personal Ranger Key and what became of her powers after she along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.

This key along with the majority of the Ranger Keys were collected by the Red Pirates and later used by the Gokaigers. The Blue Swallow Ranger Key was mainly used by Joe Gibken (Gokai Blue), who used it to fight as Blue Swallow.

The Jetman keys, along with all the Ranger Keys of the first 33 Super Sentai, were briefly taken by the Black Cross King and turned into Ranger puppets that were fought by the Gokaigers and the Goseigers. Using their power of flight to disorient the two Sentai in the initial skirmish, they later split up, with the puppet Blue Swallow being defeated as part of a group of surviving Blue warrior keys by Gokai Blue and Super Gosei Blue.

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. Ako received her key and became Blue Swallow once more. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates



The Shadow Jetman

A copy of Blue Swallow was created as part of the Shadow Jetman. Light Armadillo created these evil Jetmen from their shadows, as they grew stronger, the real Jetmen grew weaker. Maria created a force-field of light over the city at night to create daylight so the Shadow Jetman could destroy the city. There were only four, as Gai Yuki was not there when the copies were made. Gai shot Maria so the light field went away, the Shadow selves vanished and the Jetman defeated Light Armadillo. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 25: The Laughing Shadow-People
