"The Invincible Soul of the Saurians! AbareBlack! (てきりゅうじんだましい!アバレブラック Muteki no Ryūjin-damashii! Abare Burakku)"
―AbareBlack's roll call[src]

Asuka (アスカ) is AbareBlack (アバレブラック Abare Burakku), the Black Ranger of the Abarangers who also serves as the team's mentor. Asuka is a Saurian Warrior from the Dino Earth who traveled to Another Earth to stop the Evolians from taking over, later in the show he was given a surname to be known as "Asuka Ono" (大野 飛鳥 Ōno Asuka) due to and for legal systems.

In Power Rangers Dino Thunder, in the episode Lost & Found in Translation, Asuka was renamed as Mikey who also serves as the Black Dino Ranger of this episode.

History

Abaranger

Asuka lost his powers after his Dino Harp Key is damaged

He is a Saurian warrior from Dino Earth with a tragic past. He was the last of his kind to fight the Evolians and escaped to Earth. He brought the Dino Bracelets and gave them to the Abarangers. However, prior to his arrival, the Dino Harp key was damaged, so he couldn't transform.

Asuka regained his powers after his Dino Harp Key is restored.

When he got it finally restored in Episode 7, he had some troubles during his first battles as he couldn't use his Dino Guts correctly, until his true sense of justice awakened. Asuka is a melancholic person, he is fast-willed and fastidious, but his high expectations lead him to be depressed often.

Asuka activates the Armor of Darkness

He has shown enormous amounts of power, as he has been able even of defeating a Giganoid and an upgraded KillerGhost on his own: however, due to his gentle personality, he often holds back during battles. In Episode 35, he had his surname be "Asuka Ono" (大野 飛鳥 Ōno Asuka), due to the legal systems on Another Earth, and had used it only for Another Earth, meaning he was not born with it. His Bakuryuu partner is Brachio. With the mysterious girl's help Asuka was able to remember that he was the one responsible for breaking the Armor of Darkness out of it's seal and therefore the one responsible for it falling into Evolian hands.

Although at first Asuka had trouble confirming that Apostle of Destruction Jeanne was his wife Mahoro because of the resemblance, he later confirmed it during the destruction of the second Anamolicarus.

AbareBlack finishes Armor of Darkness Jeanne in fire

Unknown to the other Abarangers and his other friends who believed he died in the explosion, Asuka chose to wear the Armor of Darkness again to save Mahoro from its curse. Once it was confirmed that Asuka was alive and was wearing the Armor of Darkness, Mahoro regained her memory and she chose to save him from the armor and tricked AbareKiller into helping her destroy it at the cost of becoming Jeanne again.

AbareBlack got engulfed by the mist of Darkness

Though forced to fight her again after being freed, Mahoro secretly sent a telepathic message to Asuka confirming that she is not under Dezumozorlya's influence like before and that she has gone back to the Evolian undercover as she had unfinished business with them.

After Apostle of Dawn Reje was reverted back to her infant form, and Mahoro passes her off to Asuka before being possessed by Dezumozorlya, Asuka recognized that she is his and Mahoro's child. In the finale, when stabbed by Wicked Life Soldier Armor Dezumogevalus, Asuka and Mahoro almost give in to dying out of shame for their past actions, but Ranru Itsuki gave them the courage to live for their child's sake, allowing them to break free, and both Ranru and Asuka defeated the Armor of Darkness recreation once and for all. After the final battle, Asuka and Mahoro named their new child Mikoto, after AbareKiller, and returned to Dino Earth with his family and the Bakuryuu.

Armor of Darkness

Main article: Armor of Darkness

It was revealed in Episode 30 that Asuka was the original wielder of the Armor of Darkness that he took out from its confinement by breaking the seal to save Mahoro and Mizuho from the Evoliens, but was unaware of its ability to drive the user insane. As a result he decimated the rest of the Dragon Tribe until he was somehow defeated by Mizuho who had become Apostle of Darkness Geilton and freed him from the armor. After being freed he had no memory of using the armor and the remainder of his people were afraid to tell him.

Eventually the mysterious girl was able to help him remember these events and he chose to defeat Jeanne and seal away the armor for good out of guilt for his past actions. But after learning that Jeanne is Mahoro he chose to take the armor back to save her. Sometime afterwards he would save the Abarangers from Trinoid #19: VultureTreasureLychee and then during the battle against Trinoid #20: RougeGiraffeRafflesiale his helmet came off, revealing his identity and awakening Mahoro's memory. This lead her to rejoin the Evolian as Jeanne, and with the promise of letting Mikoto have the armor when they defeated Asuka, though it was later revealed that Mahoro's plan was for two people to defeat Asuka by combining the power of good and evil to destroy the armor once and for all.

Appearances: Abaranger Episodes 33, 35-40.



Transformation and Roll Call

Ranger Key

The AbareBlack Ranger Key.

"Abaranger!"
Mobilates' Gokai Change announcement[src]

The AbareBlack Ranger Key (アバレブラックレンジャーキー Abare Burakku Renjā Kī) is Asuka's personal Ranger Key and what became of his powers after he 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 AbareBlack Ranger Key was mainly used by Don Dogoier (Gokai Green), who used it to fight as AbareBlack. It was also used by Joe Gibken (Gokai Blue) on one occasion.

The Abaranger 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. The Abaranger keys were defeated by Gokai Yellow. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. It is presumed that Asuka received his key and became AbareBlack once more. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Asuka is portrayed by Kaoru Abe (阿部 薫 Abe Kaoru). As a child, he was portrayed by Hoshi Ishida (石田 法嗣 Ishida Hōshi) and Hyoga Gondo (権藤 彪冴 Gondō Hyōga). As AbareBlack, his suit actor was Hideaki Kusaka (日下 秀昭 Kusaka Hideaki), his sub was Jiro Okamoto (岡元 次郎 Okamoto Jirō).

Notes

  • In the Dino Thunder episode Lost & Found in Translation, he was named "Mikey".
  • He is the only Armor of Darkness wielder not to be affiliated with the Evolian.
  • Due to Asuka's apparent death in episode 32, Kaoru Abe was removed from the opening credits in the following episode. While he would remain uncredited during the episodes where Asuka is seen wearing the Armor of Darkness, Kaoru Abe would regain a credit in episode 40 and later be added back to the credits in episode 41, following Asuka's return as AbareBlack in the previous episode.
