Chiaki Tani (谷 千明 Tani Chiaki) is Shinken Green (シンケングリーン Shinken Gurīn) of the Shinkengers. He serves in the next generation after his widowed father.



Unlike Ryunosuke, Chiaki initially has no interest in being Takeru’s vassal. He is weaker than the others and seen as immature and a rebel because he abandoned his training early and would rather hang out at the local game center than restart his training. He is a big Tekken fan as he often plays Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion. Regardless of his short temper, he is cheerful and honest. In battle, Chiaki often uses tricks to gain the upper hand against Gedoshu.

As Chiaki and Kotoha are the youngest members of the Shinkengers,[1][2] they share a strong bond; several episodes focus on their friendship. In episode 6, Chiaki becomes upset that Kotoha readily believes that she is stupid and accidentally hurts her feelings when he scolds her for it.

He later apologizes for his outburst, and Kotoha confesses that she likes how he is straightforward. Since then, Chiaki and Kotoha have become close, each trying to cheer up the other in times of stress; this is most evident when Chiaki draws cat whiskers on Takeru's face (when Takeru's soul was trapped in a beckoning cat statue) to make Kotoha laugh.

Chiaki, out of the Shinkengers, is shaken the most by theft of Kotoha's soul. In a brash move, he attempts to recover it, by demanding the Ayakashi come out of the Sanzu River with his sword. When a friend of Genta's shows an interest in Kotoha in episode, Chiaki is uncomfortable with the idea. Aside from Kotoha, Chiaki is also good friends with Genta as they are both free spirited young men.

Shinkenger vs. Go-Onger

The Shinkengers come to the scene where they believed the Gedoshu were ransacking the city, but instead face the Gaiark. Although the Shinkengers are confused, they still fought the Gaiark. But while the Shinkengers were fighting, Sosuke Esumi, Go-On Red, appears, and defeats the Gaiark for them. Chiaki and the rest of the Shinkengers weren't able to fight for long as Sosuke's mach-speed fighting interfered with everyone. Although the Shinkengers found Sosuke and his companion Bomper, suspicious, they invite them to the Shiba mansion.

Meanwhile, in the Sanzu River, the Gedoshu meet the Chief of Pollution Bacchiido, a Gaiark who wants to unite all worlds under Gaiark World. To do so, he created a device in the human world that can pollute all worlds, called Bacchirium Plant. He reveals that to finish the device, he needs water from the Sanzu River. He planned to transport the water with his ability to cross dimensions. Dokoku, learning that using the Bacchirium Plant, he can increase the Sanzu River, allied with Bacchiido, and summons a Gedoshu, Homurakogi. However, Bacchiido asked for three more members, who turned out to be the three Pollution President Batcheed: Yogostein, Kegalesia, Kitaneidas, who, after previously been defeated by the Go-Ongers and Yogoshimacritein, lived at the bottom of the Sanzu River.

When Sosuke and Bomper arrive at the Shiba Mansion, Bomper reveals that Bacchiido created a device that can pollute all the worlds somewhere in the Human World, called Bacchirium Plant. He also reveals that the Go-Ongers fought and lost to Bacchiido in Gunman World, and in consequence, all got separated in different worlds. Sosuke and Bomper were forced back to the Human World. The Engines were trying to find the rest of the Go-Ongers. So, Sosuke planned to destroy Bacchirium plant once the Go-Ongers and Engines reunite, and asked the Shinkengers to help. Takeru declined due to Sosuke's amateur way of fighting while wasting too much energy and thinking lightly about battle. Later, Chiaki commented that Takeru didn't have to be so cold to Sosuke.

Both he and Genta appeared to the Gokaigers to support them; even though the Shinkenger Greater Power had previously been granted by Kaoru.

Chiaki, alongside his team (Shinken Gold and Princess Shinken Red were absent), among the majority of the Super Sentai heroes, was caught up in the "Super Hero Taisen" incident which eventually resulted in the Super Sentai teams and Kamen Riders joining forces to defeat both Dai-Zangyack and Dai-Shocker. Ironically, the Shinkengers were acquainted with the Great Leader of Dai-Shocker, Tsukasa Kadoya, also known as Kamen Rider Decade, having encountered him before when he visited their world.

The combined forces of superheroes were able to turn the tide against the Madou army. They lined up and used their various finisher attacks to destroy the revived monsters.

After Demon King PsychoIcon-crosswiki was destroyed and the battle was finally over, the Shinkengers appeared standing on a cliff with all the other heroes who appeared to help, to say goodbye to the heroes of recent years before taking their leave.

"Shinken Green" Super Change Card

Super Change (スーパーチェンジ Sūpā Chenji): A Change (チェンジ Chenji) card that initiates the transformation from Gosei Angel to Super Goseiger. Unlike the other Gosei Cards, the activation call for this card is "Super Tensou!". In Tensou Sentai Goseiger vs. Shinkenger: Epic on Ginmaku, this card was used by Gosei Black to allow Shinken Green to become a Super Shinkenger without using the Inromaru.

Shinken Green Ranger Key

The Shinken Green Ranger Key.

The Shinken Green Ranger Key (シンケングリーンレンジャーキー Shinken Gurīn Renjā Kī) is Chiaki Tani'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 Shinken Green Ranger Key was mainly used by Don Dogoier (Gokai Green), who used it to fight as Shinken Green. It was also used by Joe Gibken (Gokai Blue) on one occasion.

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. It is presumed that Chiaki received his key and became Shinken Green once more.

Behind the scenes


Chiaki Tani is portrayed by Shogo Suzuki (鈴木 勝吾 Suzuki Shōgo), who reprised his role in Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle. As Shinken Green, his suit actor was Yasuhiro Takeuchi (竹内 康博 Takeuchi Yasuhiro), his sub was Masaru Ōbayashi (大林 勝 Ōbayashi Masaru).

In the Legend War depicted in episode 1 of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger and Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle, Shinken Green was portrayed by an unidentified suit actor.


  • He is the only Shinkenger of the main team to be a legend in Gokaiger.
  • He shares some similarities with Masumi Inou/Bouken Black:
    • They wish to surpass their Red Rangers, which leads to their rivalry.
    • They refer to their Pink Rangers as their "big sisters".
    • They care deeply about their Yellow Rangers.
    • Unlike Masumi, he is not an anti-hero.
