Shurikenger/Green Samurai Ranger

This page highlights the differences between Shurikenger (original) and Cameron Watanabe.

Sky Ninja Shurikenger
Green Samurai Ranger


Shurikenger Cam
Shurikenger is a Ninja. Cam is a Samurai.
Shurikenger's identity originally a mystery. Gave up human form to gain his powers; original appearance unknown. Uses disguise ability to appear with a different face in every episode. Cam is the Rangers' "tech guy" prior to joining the team, and has no need to disguise himself. His identity is always known to the Rangers.
Shurikenger has no connection to Tau Zant or Sensei Mugensai Hinata outside his duties as part of the Space Ninja Union. Cam is the nephew of Lothor and the son of Sensei Kanoi Watanabe.
Shurikenger apparently dies in the final showdown with Tau Zant, though shows up without explanation later in team-ups. Cam survives Lothor's defeat to continue to run the school. Was never believed to be dead.
Shurikenger was succeeded by Tenkai in Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger: 10 YEARS AFTER though eventually retakes his role. Cam never had a successor; there is only one known user of his powers (though coincidentally, Samurai will have an unrelated character whose title is also "Green Samurai Ranger.")
Shurikenger was played by 10 veteran Sentai actors in several episodes, one suit actor and voiced by another while morphing. Cam was played by one single actor.
Shurikenger teamed up with Gaorangers in Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger vs. Gaoranger and in Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger vs Hurricaneger he appeared almost at the last to help the Abarangers and Hurricanegers. Cam teamed up with the Dino Thunder Rangers only.
Shurikenger was no longer human after sacrificing his human form to gain the powers. Cam remains human.
Shurikenger returned in Shuriken Sentai Ninninger in one episode appearances. Cam did not return in either Ninja Steel or Super Ninja Steel.
Shurikenger is a comical and funny guy. Cam is a cynical, sarcastic, intelligent, and serious person.
Shurikenger teamed up with RyukiIcon-crosswiki.png & KnightIcon-crosswiki.png. Cam never allied with Dragon KnightIcon-crosswiki.png & Wing KnightIcon-crosswiki.png.
