Byakkoshinken (白虎真剣 Byakkoshinken, Heavenly White Tiger Sword), known as Byakko for short, is an enchanted talking saber that was originally in the possession of Grandmaster Yufang. Yufang entrusted it to his fiancé Shoukyou but following her kidnap by Kabuki Novice, Yufang drove it into a boulder at a shinto shrine until its destined wielder appeared. The one chosen turned out to be a young boy named Kou who Byakko called out to with telepathy, guiding Kou to Byakko's location where he removed the weapon from its resting place.
Byakko offered to help Kou as KibaRanger, voicing-over for him upon his debut as KibaRanger until the other Dairangers found out about Kou's secret identity, as well as co-piloting Mythical Chi Beast Won Tiger. He could also control Kou's body while fighting as KibaRanger.
Byakkoshinken was wielded by KibaRanger during the Legend War, which ended when he sacrificed his powers with the rest of the first 34 Super Sentai to destroy the invasion force of the Space Empire Zangyack. As the personal weapon of KibaRanger, Byakko was incorporated into his lost powers which resurfaced in the form of a Ranger Key. Initially, this Ranger Key was initially animated into a subservient warrior by Basco ta Jolokia's Rapparatta before being claimed by the Gokaigers, who assumed KibaRanger's form via the Gokai Change. Ultimately, the Gokaigers returned their borrowed powers to their rightful owners after overthrowing Zangyack.
