"Cutting down hundreds of evil doers! Hell's Guard Dog! DekaMaster!"
―DekaMaster's roll call[src]

Anubian Chief Doggie Kruger (アヌビス星人ドギー・クルーガー Anubisu-seijin Dogī Kurūgā) is DekaMaster (デカマスター Deka Masutā) of the S.P.D. and Dekarangers. Nicknamed "Boss" (ボス Bosu), he is the commander of the S.P.D. branch on Earth. During his more active days as a Dekaranger in his youth, he was quite feared to be faced in combat, due to his sword style being one of the strongest in the universe.

Biography

An alien from the Planet Anubis, he's a member of the Shep-Tribe and the much decorated commander of Earth's S.P.D. unit. He was a legend in his day as a Dekaranger, earning his other nickname, Hell's Guard Dog (地獄の番犬 Jigoku no Banken).

Doggie is a tough leader and being honorable, he will do anything to save the ones he cares about. He seems to have feelings for his assistant Cignian Swan Shiratori, panicking whenever he hears that Swan has an admirer. He also occasionally assists the Dekarangers as DekaMaster, wielding the powerful D-Sword Vega. His fighting style is the Galaxy Single Sword Style (銀河一刀流 Ginga Ittoryu), chosen by his Sensei to learn the style's secret technique, Vega Impulse. His number is 100.

Arrival on Earth

Before becoming the commander of the S.P.D. branch on Earth, he was one of the regular customers of Dino House during his early days on Earth.

Dekaranger vs. Abaranger

It was revealed in Dekaranger vs. Abaranger that Doggie suffers from a backbone problem which causes him to miss once every 2,000 attacks, which was cured by Yukito Sanjyou (AbareBlue). Incidentally, Doggie is friends with Ryunnosuke Sugishita, the owner of the DinoHouse restaurant and friend of the Abarangers, who in turn, was friends with Miyuki Ozu, the mother of the five Ozu siblings. After preventing Ginjifu Seijin Kazakku from attempting to resurrect Wicked Life God Dezumozorlya a second time, he assisted both teams as DekaMaster during the final battle.

Magiranger vs. Dekaranger

When Doggie, Swan, and Miyuki met, they all quickly became close friends when Miyuki attempted to entrust the two with the Heaven's Flower. Doggie also fought Dark Magic Knight Wolzard for a short time, both proving to be evenly matched. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Mahou Sentai Magiranger vs. Dekaranger

Legend War

Doggie Kruger and Extra Heroes in Super Sentai 199

"We're counting on you, Super Sentai!"
―Doggie Kruger[src]

Kruger fought in the Legend War as a member of an "extra hero" squadron who assisted the Goseiger, Tsuyoshi Kaijou and Sokichi Banba reach the battleground where the final showdown occurred. Kruger sacrificed his DekaMaster powers along with the Extra Heroes and the rest of the Super Sentai at the orders of AkaRenger.

Judgement Pirates

Kruger with Captain Marvelous.

After Marika Reimon encountered Captain Marvelous and the Gokaigers, she contacted Doggie who intercepted and confronted Marvelous. When Marvelous kicked the Master License out of his hand, and Doggie drew out D-Sword Vega to engage him, Marvelous fought him off, even with handcuffs still on.

Before Kruger brought Captain Marvelous in, they accidentally stumbled into a Zangyack scheme overseen by the Alienizer Buramudo to launch Subterranean Missiles to destroy every city on Earth in two hours. When their presence was discovered, Kruger was wounded as he managed to get Captain Marvelous out of harm's way. Though Captain Marvelous offered to help him, Kruger refused to trust the pirate as he left him behind to stop the missile launch regardless of his injuries. Realizing how injured his captor was, Captain Marvelous saved the alien from the potential suicide mission and took him to safety. With Captain Marvelous's sense of honor against all odds winning his trust, Kruger uncuffed the pirate and handed him back his Mobilates. Marvelous united with his teammates and destroyed the missile launching device in time before reuniting with his crew. Together, they changed into the Dekarangers and defeated Buramudo.

When Buramudo was enlarged, GokaiOh was formed to stop him from manually launching the one of the Subterranean Missiles, taking out some of the Zangyack fleet in the process. Kruger told the Gokaigers they could now summon the Greater Power of the Dekarangers. Using the Dekaranger Keys, they summon the Pat Striker from within GokaiOh. They were soon able to finish off Buramudo after an intense gunfight. The next morning, the Gokaigers escorted a wounded Kruger when they were cornered by a police barricade. However, Officer Banban Akaza suddenly appears and notified the alleged acts of piracy by the Gokaigers were proven to be a hoax instigated by the Zangyack Empire. The pirates were free to go as he took Kruger, but with a warning not to abuse the powers of the Dekarangers. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 5: Judgement Pirates

10 Years After

Doggie was gravely injured and hospitalized as part of a plot by S.P.D. Commissioner Kight Reidlich to frame him for accepting bribes from criminals in exchange for police information. Fortunately, Kight's plans were thwarted by the reunited Dekarangers, and both he and his underlings Assam Asimov and Mugi Grafton were defeated and Doggie's name cleared. Doggie and Swan also reunited and, by the end of the adventure, confessed their feelings for one another. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger: 10 YEARS AFTER

Contacted by Banban Akaza, Doggie was alerted to a wormhole from which several spacecraft had emerged and landed on Earth. Arriving at Neo DekaBase, Doggie met Shou Ronpo, Hammy and wolfman Garu, the latter of whom bore a peculiar resemblence to the Anubian which was noted by both parties. The strangers had been taken into custody by Sen and Umeko on suspicion of being Alienizers but were soon realized to be benevolent heroes who had arrived on their Earth by accident. Alerting them that the wormhole leading them home was closing, Kruger arranged for the Dekarangers to aid their Kyutama Gattai RyuTeiOh in DekaWing Robo to keep the wormhole open long enough to return them to their own space. Seeing the Kyurangers off, Doggie reminded Sen and Umeko to collect their visas to travel to the planet Waiha, where they were to be married. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.18: Emergency Dispatch!

Transformation and Roll Call

Ranger Key

The DekaMaster Ranger Key.

"Dekaranger!"
Mobilates' Gokai Change announcement[src]

The DekaMaster Ranger Key (デカマスターレンジャーキー Deka Masutā Renjā Kī) is Doggie Kruger'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 other nine extra hero keys and the fifteen sixth ranger keys, were initially acquired by Basco ta Jolokia and later used by the Gokaigers. Like all of his Ranger Keys, Basco used his trumpet, the Rapparatta, to turn the DekaMaster key into a puppet to do his bidding. Basco summoned DekaMaster, MagiMother, Wolzard Fire, along with the Black Knight in the Ginga Forest. They were all defeated, while the Black Knight key was taken by Gai, the other three were recovered by Sally. Basco later united his nine remaining Ranger Keys when he was confronted by Goro Hoshino (OhRed†). The Extra Heroes would then fight the Gokaigers again, who wished to take the Ohrangers' greater power rather than just be given it. DekaMaster and DekaSwan fought Captain Marvelous (Gokai Red), who fought as OhRed. The Extra Heroes were taken down by the Olé Bazooka. DekaMaster's key, along with the rest of the Extra Heroes, was claimed by the Gokaigers.

While in the possession of the Gokaigers, the DekaMaster Ranger Key was used by Joe Gibken (Gokai Blue) on two occasions.

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. Doggie received his key back, allowing him to become DekaMaster once more.

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Doggie Kruger is portrayed by suit actor Hideaki Kusaka (日下 秀昭 Kusaka Hideaki), who is also his suit actor as DekaMaster, and voiced by Tetsu Inada (稲田 徹 Inada Tetsu), who had previously voiced Highness Duke Org Shuten from Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger. Kruger would become one of Inada's most recognizable Super Sentai roles, with the actor playing him throughout all his future appearances.

In Kyuranger, Doggie Kruger was portrayed by suit actor Yasuhiko Imai (今井 靖彦 Imai Yasuhiko), as Kusaka was already starring in the series as Shou Ronpo.

Notes

  • Dekamaster is one of few Rangers whose color is not clearly identified. His Ranger Key and Super Sentai Battle: Dice-O classify him with Black Rangers, but his Super Sentai Legend Wars card and his Chess Piece Collection DX is blue. This is unlike his counterpart, who has only ever been labeled as a Black Ranger.

A picture taken during filming of Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle of Kenji Ohba and Doggie.

  • As mentioned in the pamphlet for Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle, Doggie is good friends with Retsu Ichijouji (Space Sheriff Gavan). This was later confirmed in Uchuu Keiji Gavan vs. Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger when Doggie recognises Geki Jumonji as Retsu's successor as Space Sheriff Gavan and Geki recognises Doggie as the "police dog", a nickname Doggie says Retsu would call him.
  • He is the only Sentai Ranger to have his Power Rangers counterpart be almost the exact same. The only difference being the alien suits: the American one being more high-budget with scale-like skin instead of fur.
  • It is unknown exactly how Kruger's head fits in his helmet, as questioning it to the Anubian himself just made him nervous.
  • Kruger was the first mentor to become a Ranger and fight alongside the main team.
  • During a campaign of "Sentai leaders" for Super Sentai Battle Dice-O, Kruger was one of the nine leaders, confirming him as the leader of the Earth Dekaranger even above the six stationed officers typically part of the team.
  • Doggie's roll call of "Hell's Guard Dog" is both a reflection of his personality as a stern figure of law enforcement and a reference to Greek myth, as the entrance to Hades is guarded by a dog named Cerberus.

Dub names

In the Korean dub of Dekaranger entitled Power Rangers S.P.D., which aired in South Korea, while his Ranger designation is S.P. Master.
