- "The Shining Brave, Kyoryu Silver!"
- ―Kyoryu Silver's role call[src]
Dantetsu Kiryu (桐生 ダンテツ Kiryū Dantetsu) is Daigo's father who gives him an amber pendant that was later revealed to be the Secret Stone of Allomerus, and sets him on his own path. Later he is pleased to learn that Daigo has chosen his own path which aligns with his own. He later becomes Kyoryu Silver while seemingly betraying his son and fellow Kyoryugers, joining the Deboth Army to preserve the Earth by allowing the extinction of only human life on it as part of his hidden plan to obtain the Earth's Melody.
He was first shown with a young Daigo traveling. He gives Daigo an amber necklace, and tells him to find a real dinosaur.
He reappeared, arriving back in Japan to give Daigo a special stone to give to Torin, who has recently been attacked by Endolf. It appears that Dantetsu knows Torin on a personal level, as he knew Torin's true nature as a former member of the Deboth Army.
He once again reappears, to find the last Lost Stone to revive Bragigas, with the help from his son.
In Brave 41, Dantetsu appears just in time to save Daigo from being Dogold's vessel.
Torin later reveals that the Earth had chosen him to be a King, one who would be able to hear the music of the land, and lead humanity to greatness. Dantetsu leaves telling Torin that he must go on and finish his final task, and leave Daigo and his friends in Torin's hands.
He later acquires the Kyoryu Silver powers (both the Zyudenchi and Giga Gaburivolver) after killing Torin and fights his son in a one-on-one Kyoryuger fight as he tells Daigo that this is what the Earth wish for.  
Daigo confronts Dantetsu and the two battle. When their attacks impact, Daigo hears the melody of the Earth and realizes why his father killed Torin: being that in order for Torin to fight the Deboth monsters in the underworld, so they would perish on the surface when Deboth tries to raise them. The Deboth commanders attack the two, and Deboth progresses the clock ahead, starting it up again, however with little amount of time left before Earth will be destroyed.
Kyoryuger vs. Go-Buster
ToQger vs. Kyoryuger
Dantetsu returns as Kyoryu Silver, having been summoned alongside Yuko, Shinya, and Yayoi, by a prayer for aid from Candelilla and Luckyuro to help the ToQgers and Kyoryugers following the emergence of Deboth's creator, Creator Devius. Saving the six-man ToQger and Kyoryuger teams from the awakened Devius, the extra Kyoryugers back-up the two Sentai Teams alongside four generals from the Shadow Line. The giant Devius is finally defeated when all present combine their power into a 20-man finisher which destroys him.

- Zyudenryu #10: Bragigas
Ranger KeyThe Kyoryu Silver Ranger Key (キョウリュウシルバーレンジャーキー Kyōryū Shirubā Renjā Kī) is a Kyoryuger Ranger Key released as part of a set of thirteen Kyoryuger Ranger Keys in Bandai Premium. It is unknown if it will appear in a future crossover. Of course as with all Ranger Keys, should it exist, it would be able to transform one, i.e. one of the Gokaigers, into Kyoryu Silver.
Behind the scenes
Dantetsu Kiryu is portrayed by Shinji Yamashita (山下 真司 Yamashita Shinji).
- Dantetsu was initially rumored to be Kyoryu Silver before Torin first transformed in Brave 36.
- At 62 years old, Shinji Yamashita was at the time the oldest actor to play a new Sentai Ranger. He is, as of now, surpassed by Takashi Sasano, who portrayed Yoshitaka Igasaki at the age of 67.
- The way that he joined with Deboth Army as an evil ranger until reunited with the protagonist is similar to Isamu Ozu's. The main difference is that Dantetsu was deceiving the Deboth Army, while Isamu Ozu was transformed into Wolzard unwillingly.
