"ShishiRanger! Heavenly Phantom Star, Daigo!"
―ShishiRanger's roll call[src]

Daigo of the Heavenly Phantom Star ("天幻星" 大五 "Tengensei" Daigo) is ShishiRanger (シシレンジャー Shishi Renjā, Lion Ranger) of the Dairangers and the second-in-command to RyuuRanger. He is 24 years old (42 in Gokaiger). The most gentle member of the team, as well as the most serious of the group, he works at a pet shop and becomes romantically involved with Kujaku. He was scouted to be a Dairanger after Kaku's discovery of his Qi connection with Kujaku. He specializes in the Kung Fu form of Hung Ga and utilizes illusions in combat.



Daigo Tengensei was twenty-four years old when the Gorma wars began again. He was the most remarkable, gentle member of the team. In the beginning, he was a bit sullen. He worked all the time at a small pet shop and loved living creatures. In episodes 3 and 4, he was the only one other than Kazu who believed Shouji and the only one who took the idea of dolls attacking people seriously. In episodes 9 and 10, it was Daigo whose soul was open to the signal from Kujaku, trapped for 6,000 years inside the Mirror Make-up Artist. He was instrumental in freeing her, but by that time he was already in love with her thanks to what Master Kaku had told him about her. In episode 16, he tried to convince her to become a gentle, kind person he heard she was before. She returned again in Episode 23, and they were trapped together. Seeing his determination and refusal to give up, she relinquished her anger and gave him her strength. He then learned that she was dying. She was determined to seek a legendary cure because he believed in her.

By Episode 34, he found a cactus that he once cared for and had lost. It had, he thought, a spirit haunting it. But it happened that the cactus was given a human spirit-form by General Cactus. She died saving him and truly became a ghost. In Episode 36, Daigo followed a news report that led him to a trapped Kujaku, and he and the team fought to help her in her quest for the cure. In Episode 41, he truly did lose Kujaku. It was this open connection that Kaku had felt before in Daigo that caused him to choose him to be a Dairanger.

After fighting against hundreds of Gormin and their Zgormin commanders.

After the Gokaigers finally defeat Zangyack invasion force on Earth and the emperor, Marvelous returned all of the Ranger Keys to their original owners. since KirinRanger and TenmaRanger got their Ranger Keys back as they saw the Gokaigers off, it is assumed Daigo and the other Dairangers have their powers back.

As ShishiRanger, Daigo uses a variation of Hung Gar called Lion-First that enables him to generate mists to confuse opponents as well as to create life-like illusions to attack them.

Mythical Chi Beast



  • Kiryoku: A basic attack possessed by all six Dairangers where they project a wave of force from their hands.
  • Heavenly Phantom Star Mist Concealment: Daigo's signature attack. Using his Kiryoku, Daigo raises a cloud of fog to confuse his opponents before attacking them with life like illusions.
  • Lion-Fist Empty Innocence
  • Heavenly Illusion Star Rod Arrow: where Daigo used his Dairen Rod in bladed sasumata mode, before using the cloud of illusions to confuse his enemy then finally throwing his rod at the enemy.
  • Dairen Rod Peacock Cut: where Daigo let's out illusionary afterimages to confuse the enemy, before doing a double slash attack with the Star Sword and the Dairen Rod(satsumata mode).
  • Heavenly Illusion Star Ghost Runner:where he can use his illusionary powers to make clones to confuse the enemy.

Ranger Key

The ShishiRanger Ranger Key.

The ShishiRanger Ranger Key (シシレンジャーレンジャーキー Shishi Renjā Renjā Kī) is Daigo'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 ShishiRanger Ranger Key was mainly used by Don Dogoier (Gokai Green), who used it to fight as ShishiRanger. It was also used by Luka Millfy (Gokai Yellow) on one occasion.

The Dairanger 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. Splitting up, the puppet ShishiRanger was defeated as part of a group of surviving Green and Black warrior keys by Gokai Green and Super Gosei Black. 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 Daigo received his key and became ShishiRanger once more. Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates



Copy Dairanger.

Multiple copies of Shishiranger were created by Copy Empress using photos she took of the Dairangers. The first was a human clone created during a day at the pool; while a second was created alongside the first in order to double-team the respective Dairanger. A third was created in a team meant to face KirinRanger before he destroys all the clones with his RodArrow. Ep. 25: The Grouped Opposite Squadron

Behind the scenes

Daigo of the Heavenly Phantom Star was portrayed by the late Tatsuya Nōmi (能見 達也 Nōmi Tatsuya). As ShishiRanger, his suit actor was Tsutomu Kitagawa (喜多 川務 Kitagawa Tsutomu), Yasuhiro Takeuchi.


China Green.

In the original concept of Dairanger titled Chuuka Sentai Chinaman, ShishiRanger is present as one of the five Dairangers, with minor costume differences.


  • Daigo is the first Green Ranger to be apart of the core team since Jun'ichi Aikawa.
  • His name is literally translated as "Great Five", which is the name of a Showa-era mech and similar to the name of a Showa-era team.
  • Daigo and Tessai from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger share a part in each other's roll calls. Both Rangers do the martial arts "horse stance" while doing their roll calls, in which one squats, feet equal distance from each other, and holds their fists to their sides with their fists pointing out. Both Rangers also turn their bodies to the side from the hip and turn their heads to face their enemies while doing this pose. This may be because both Rangers have Chinese origins (Daigo's Ranger form is based on Chinese mythology, and Tessai is of Chinese heritage) where the stance is widely used.
  • He is the first Green Ranger since Dai to be the second-in-command of a team.
