"The Regal Knight! Ryusoul Black!"

Character History

Super Sentai Strongest Battle

Towa had received an invitation for the Super Sentai Strongest Battle, a tournament whose winners were supposedly promised their wish. Entering a Ryusoul Temple, Towa asked his older brother Bamba if he had any wishes, to which Bamba replied that he could not think of anything. Coming across a wall with the Ryusoul insignia, Bamba realized that had arrived at their destination and so used a TsuyoSoul to break down the wall Tvicon.png TV STORY-Battle1: Who is the Strongest in History!?.

Proceeding through the temple, the brothers found a pile of RyuSouls including a NobiSoul and FueSoul, which they already possessed, as well as a HayaSoul which was claimed by Towa. Also present was an amber RyuSoul which did not react when Bamba attempted to use it via the Ryusoul Ken, with Towa suggesting it was a blank. The brothers then set off to find what they had came for, the Kishiryu.

Though arriving after the tournament was won by the Oddball Team, the Ryusoulger brothers arrived in time to save them from Rita in the Gaisoulg armor. Engaging Rita, the duo proved more than a match for her, leading her to take Kagura Izumi as a hostage. However, the Ryusoulgers quickly outmaneuvered her, with Ryusoul Black using the NobiSoul to retrieve Kagura, allowing Ryusoul Green to defeat Rita using the HayaSoul. Leaving Rita to the Oddball Team, the brothers took their leave with Towa saying goodbye. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Battle: Heading Towards Tomorrow!

Bamba was a stoic, cold, and no nonsense type of person, opting the most convenient or easiest ways out of trouble. He and his brother were rather elitist, as they are initially considering the core Ryusoulgers as "weak" due to their methods clashing. In combat with Minosaurs, he first opted to kill the host rather than take out the Minosaur, considering it the easiest way to remove the threat and that one life in exchange for hundreds of others is a worthy exchange.

Underneath that cool & cold exterior lies the heart that values family above else. He does not wish any grievous harm upon Towa and would consider even killing his little brother's friend to ease him of his pain. This vulnerability makes Towa the only person to change his mind directly on an impasse, showcasing each other's faith in one another.

Over time Bamba loses his straightforward view on Minosaur hosts due to his acceptance of Koh, Melto, and Asuna's views as he fights with them. He eventually trusts in them as well, and will lash out in anger and revenge on those who harm them, as shown when Nada backstabbed Koh and the Beelzebub Minosaur almost grew inside Asuna. He also developed a liking for smiling children on Christmas, and became increasingly enraged by Wiserue's scheme against the holiday.

Eventually, it was revealed that much of his coldness came from the betrayal of Master Black, whose destruction of a tribal village left him with intense feelings of betrayal. He eventually reconciled with him, but their relationship remains slightly turbulent.

Powers and Abilities
