This article is about a/an ally turned villain in Uchu Sentai Kyuranger.

Aslan (アスラン Asuran) was the king of the planet Kaien in the Shishi System who was murdered by a Vice Shogun named Kukuruga and also the father of the prince Lucky, who would later succeed him.

It is revealed that he is somehow still alive, but had fallen under the control of Don Armage.

History

As King

He was first remembered in a flashback by Lucky where he gave his son a companion known as Caesar. When his son was still a boy, however, Kaien would come under attack by Kukuruga of the Space Shogunate Jark Matter. Though Aslan saw to it that Lucky was saved and raised on the planet Luth in the Kojishi System by his servant, Aslan and his wife were seperated from Lucky.

Impostor

Main article: Aslan (impostor)

Years later, when Lucky returned to Luth after searching for his parents, he was informed by his guardian that Aslan, though still alive, had submitted to Jark Matter and was oppressing his people. It later became apparent that the real Aslan had been murdered by Kukuruga during the invasion of Kaien, and replaced by an impostor by a Jark Matter Karo named Jumotsu. This impostor was exposed and eliminated by the Kyurangers, and the crown of Kaien was left to Lucky. Space.37: Lucky, Seen Again With His Father

Return

However, it is revealed that his death was fake and still alive but turned into Don Armage's puppet in an armored form until briefly freed by his son when his mask was destroyed. However, it is only temporary as Don Armage re-possessed him once again. Space.41: Rushing! Planet Southern Cross

Personality

From Lucky's flashbacks as a boy prior to being possessed by Don Armage, Aslan was a caring man who loved his family. However, when possessed by Don Armage, he becomes a man loyal only to the Jark Matter and is even willing to kill his own son.

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Aslan was portrayed by Gin'nojō Yamazaki (山崎 銀之丞 Yamazaki Gin'nojō) and suit actor Shinsuke Kusano (草野 伸介 Kusano Shinsuke).

Etymology

As the king of the Shishi (lion) System, Aslan's name is fittingly taken from the eponymous lion of The Chronicles of Narnia, which in turn is derived from the Turkish name meaning "Lion".

Notes

  • Aslan being taken control of by Don Armage in an armored form, while only briefly regaining his own self when the mask is destroyed, is similar to the situation between Utsusemimaru and Raging Knight Dogold from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger.
  • Aslan being the main protagonist's father who is revealed to have turned to the dark side having previously believed to have been slain brings to mind Darth Vader from the Star Wars franchise, however, the difference is, Aslan was unwillingly turned to the dark side, while Anakin Skywalker willingly turns himself into the dark side.
  • Aslan being posessed by the main villain also resembles how Heavenly Saint Blagel from Mahou Sentai Magiranger was turned as evil servant of the villains and fighting his own family.
    • Magiranger's adaptation - Power Rangers Mystic Force - also features similar storyline. However unlike Magiranger, where the whole team was related (the Ozu family), Leanbow and Bowen are more closely resembling the story arc between Aslan and Lucky.
  • Aslan being brainwashed and Lucky trying to save him also resembles the Andros-Astronema/Karone arc from Power Rangers in Space. Coincidently both series are space themed.
