Don Armage (ドン・アルマゲ Don Arumage) is the Shogun and leader of Space Shogunate Jark Matter. He is the main antagonist of Uchu Sentai Kyuranger. For a period of time, he used Quervo, a warrior from the Karasu System as a vessel, whom he had previously killed 300 years ago, before going on to use his sworn enemy, Tsurugi Ohtori as his next vessel, until he is split up from him when Lucky encourages his teammates, including Tsurugi, to weaken Armage from the inside for Lucky to free them.

Character History


Don Armage was 'born' millions of years ago. He was, in fact, a conglomerate of several negative emotions and dark energy that spread through out the universe. The more these negative emotions and dark energy gather, the stronger it got to the point it finally gained sentience. Being filled and only knowing dread, hatred, sadness, and darkness, he made it his goal to take over the universe and make it one without positive emotions.

300 Years Ago

According to Tsurugi Ohtori, Don Armage was active 300 years ago and attempted to conquer the universe, but he was opposed by 88 warriors from the 88 star systems. However, he killed the 85 other warriors, leaving Tsurugi, Orion, and Quervo, whom he later killed when the former shields Tsurugi from his attack. Tsurugi later bested him in battle after he sacrificed his immortality and killed him. However, he survived and noticed Quervo was also alive, but slowly dying. He offered the Karasu warrior his power to become as strong as Tsurugi, which Quervo accepted and Don Armage merged his essence with him, turning his body into a blend of Don Armage's with crow features: Don Quervo. Now believing he could surpass Tsurugi, Don Armage created a doppleganger of his previous form and sent it after Tsurugi, and continue his conquest of the universe. As he did so, he ordered his subordinates to erase the Earth’s history of the Houou Soldier as well as placing him on the top of his Black List. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.23: Become My Shield!

Ruling the Cosmos

Don Armage established Jark Matter's new capital as the planet Southern Cross in the Minami Juuji System, whose ruler Southern King of Minami willingly submitted to the Shogun at the expense of his people due to his philosophy that the weak were destined to serve the strong whom dominated the universe. In return, Don Armage granted Southern King the title of Karo, serving as guardian of the Minami Juuji System. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.41: Rushing! Planet Southern Cross

Acting on his order, the assassin duo of Ikargen and Mardakko destroyed over a thousand planets together. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.7: Take Back the Birthday! Setting his sights on the Sasori System, Don Armage enticed Scorpio to swear loyalty to him in return for power which he granted by transforming the man into a scorpion monster; initially enlisting Scorpio as an assassin, the Shogun would be pleased enough by his service that he would eventually promote him to Karo of the subjugated Sasori System. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.13: Stinger's Challenge To His Brother! Secretly, however, Scorpio aspired to one day surpass in power and kill Don Armage, upon which he would become the new Shogun of Jark Matter and rule the universe himself. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.16: Stinger's Reunion with His Brother


While Eriedrone made contact with the Shogun from the Big Moraimarz, intending to bring him the joyous news of the subjugation of planet Crotus, Don Armage realized that he had been shamed by the Kyurangers and blasted him back, ordering the Karo to eliminate the insurgents before immediately terminating the communication. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.1: The Super Stars of Space

Discovering that the Kyurangers had arrived on Earth, Don Armage ordered Eriedrone and Stinger to eliminate them lest they discover the planet's secret. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.4: Dreamy Android

Following the arrival of Ikargen and Mardakko on Earth, Don Armage addressed them with an order to eliminate the Kyurangers. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.8: Secret of Commander Shou Ronbou

Shortly before Ikargen's final battle with the Kyurangers, Don Armage addressed him and Mardakko; announcing the coming arrival of Scorpio to Earth, the Shogun ordered Mardakko to welcome him, which she did the night after Ikargen's destruction. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.12: 11 Ultimate All-Stars

At one point, he was seen in the Moraimars of Thunderbird when he bestowed new power over Mika Retsu, a woman who was persecuted by the Earthlings, which was revealed to be the plan of Thunderbird, which pleased Don Armage so much that Thunderbird was promoted into the Karo of Norma. Uchu Sentai Kyuranger: Episode of Stinger

Seeking to hasten completing the process of draining Earth's Planetium and destroying the world, Don Armage ordered a fleet of Moraimarz sent to the planet. Informing Scorpio of this, Don Armage entrusted him with eliminating the Kyurangers. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.15: Savior of the Water Planet Vela

After Scorpio's defeat at the hands of the Kyurangers and his redemption, giving back the three Argo Kyutama, he appears, commenting how Scorpio had been useful and ordered Madakko to activate all Moraimars before creating a dark energy projection to annihilate the Kyurangers, only to be deflected by Scorpio himself. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.21: Farewell Scorpio! The Day The Argo Revives!

Later, in some place, he was seen assembling his Vice-Shoguns Tecchu, Akyanba, and Kukuruga, instructing them to destroy Tsurugi Ohtori. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.22: True Identity of the Legendary Savior Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.23: Become My Shield!

Truth Revealed

Half of the Kyurangers went to the past to see what happened after the battle. They saw that Tsurugi really did kill Don Armage. However, when they were heading to Earth, Don Armage, who survived, attacked the Orion while it was heading to Earth and caused it to crash. Don Armage immediately attacked the Kyurangers after they left the ship.

Don Armage reappeared when the Kyurangers and Orion were fighting the Vice Shoguns. They all attacked and seemingly killed him. However, he shot Lucky from afar. Don Armage then walked out of the smoke and revealed his true form to the Kyurangers. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.28: BN Thieves, Breakup... Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.29: Orion, The Strongest Warrior

Through Shishi Red's miraculous power in the form of Shishi Red Orion, Don Armage appeared to be destroyed once and for all. However, when the Kyurangers returned to the present, Don Armage turned out to be still living yet again and remaining in control of the universe. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.30: All Right! The Miraculous Kyutama

Sooner or later, it is eventually revealed that Don Armage had been possessing Hoshi Minato, around the time after he became the universe’s well-known Space King of Pop. Until that day, Kyurangers goes undercover to investigate the strange behavior on Minato, with Hammy, Naga and Lucky disguised as a new idol group dubbed “Triple Q” while Spada and Tsurugi disguise as the three disguised Rangers’ managers. Eventually, Don Armage and Akyanba’s cover was blown, just as Armage gets out of Minato’s body, freeing the idol from the evil shogun’s possession. He then enlarged himself, only to be battled by both Gigant Houou and Orion Battler. As he was defeated, the shogun declared that while they were able to defeat him, they still can't take his life, implying there are multiple copies of him.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.35: The Secret of the Universe's No.1 Idol Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.36: The Legend That Sleeps in Lucky's Homeworld

Realizing that Tsurugi Ohtori was seeking to gather the Kyutamas needed to break the barrier protecting Southern Cross, Don Armage ordered Dr. Anton to protect the constellation systems. Anton assured the Shogun that the relevant Karos had their orders, and that Mecha Madakko was with him on planet Ghem in the Perseus System. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.38: Flaming Spheres! The 9 Crisis Strike!

Learning that the barrier had been broken by the Kyurangers, Don Armage sent Aslan to deal with the matter, specifically ordering him to eliminate Shishi Red. On Southern Cross, Southern King, through the power of Shishi Red Orion, was subjected to his own inner hell which appeared in the form of Don Armage berating him for his failure, providing an opening for Lucky to destroy him. Soon after, Don Armage's image appeared before Lucky as he confronted Aslan, revealing that he was possessing his father to act as a puppet, the Shogun reformed the mask that had been shattered by Lucky, returning Aslan to his control.

Don Armage reveals his true form to Tsurugi

Don Armage's plan for Planetium is revealed to being used as a bomb so that he can recreate the universe from scratch. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.42: My Father? The Universe? Lucky's ResolutionTvicon.png TV STORY-Space.43: The Vow on the Holy Night, 'Alright, Lucky!'

Don Armage soon confronts the Kyurangers again, only to show his true form as Quervo, Tsurugi's close friend. As it turns out after his defeat in the past, Don Armage, in his ghost form managed to possess Quervo’s corpse as his own to live in few years later as of the present.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.44: Don Armage's IdentityTvicon.png TV STORY-Space.45: Tsurugi's Life and Earth's Crisis

Final Battle

After the Kyurangers stopped the Planetium bomb in the Southern Cross galaxy, Don Armage revealed he had a back-up plan: he intended to convert all of Earth's Planetium into Dark Planetium, causing Earth to explode and take the universe with it.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.45: Tsurugi's Life and Earth's Crisis After an intense fight, the Kyurangers thwarted Don Armage's plan and defeated Quervo. However, Don Armage had another plan: possessing the body of his sworn enemy Tsurugi. With Tsurugi's power, Don Armage gained the ability to absorb Planetium, which he would use to restore Tsurugi's immortality and become unstoppable. Using this ability, he attempted to absorb the Kyurangers, but they were protected by Shou Ronpo, who he absorbed. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.46: Between Hope and DespairHe then set about draining Planetium from Earth for 99 hours to restore himself. The Kyurangers fought against the remainder of his forces for day and night, until they were exhausted, allowing Don Armage to absorb them one by one until only Lucky remained. However, Lucky revealed his plan: his teammates deliberately allowed themselves to be absorbed, and when Lucky threw his Kyutama into Don Armage's body, so that all twelve were within him, the combined power of the twelve Kyutamas overwhelmed and freed the other Kyurangers, including Tsurugi and Shou. However, thanks to the Planetium he had absorbed, Don Armage managed to create his own body, following by absorbing everyone in the universe except the Kyurangers to take on his final form.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.47: The Saviors' Promise The Kyurangers fought fiercely, but Don Armage managed to momentarily overwhelm them, also revealing his origins as being born from the pain and despair of all life in the universe, with his ultimate plan of filling the universe with despair and sorrow to give himself unlimited power. The Kyurangers, however, were able to overcome Don Armage's attack and rallied all the lives within Don Armage's body. Their hope weakened him enough that the Kyurangers manage to push Don Armage back, forcing him to grow to giant size. The Kyurangers fought him in Kyutama Dai Gattai Kyutamajin, and aided by the power of every constellation in the universe, they defeated Don Armage's ultimate form, releasing all the beings he had absorbed and returning him to his base form. In a last ditch effort, Don Armage attempted to possess Lucky and throw him into space while his body finished off the other Kyurangers. Much to his shock, Lucky managed to resist Don Armage's possession, and flew back down to Earth and forced his spirit back into his body while he and the other Kyurangers dealt the final blow, finally destroying Don Armage once and for all, thus his resurrection is no more.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.Final: Echo in the Universe! Alright, Lucky


Ruling his space with an iron fist, Don Armage shown to be strict, fierce, and tolerates neither defiance towards him nor failure from his subordinates.

At some point during the final battle against Kyuranger, Armage somehow changes his tones from “watashi/washi/ware” into “boku”, the same latter tone which is usually used by Quervo, due to Armage’s possession of the former’s corpse as his own.

After switching to using Tsurugi Ohtori as his next vessel, Don Armage would inherit aspects of Tsurugi's personality, changing his tone to "ore-sama" which is usually used by Tsurugi.


Don Armage

This is the form in which Don Armage most commonly appears in. His appearance is initially obscured by a hood until he reveals himself.

The appearances of this form encountered by the Kyurangers are mainly clones created by the real Don Armage, although it can be presumed that this was also his original form before possessing Quervo.

Appearances: KyuRanger Episodes 29-30, 35, 42-43.


Main article: Quervo

Don Quervo

The form assumed upon the merger of Don Armage and Quervo, known in official materials as Don Quervo (ドン・クエルボ Don Kuerubo).[1]

Quervo first assumed this form upon his initial merger with Don Armage, though after which Don Armage would mostly be the one in control until recent times, when Quervo began to resurface as himself to Tsurugi.

Appearances: Episodes 44-46.

Don Armage's Phoenix Armor Form

This is the form Don Armage acquires after possessing Tsurugi's body. This gives him access to the Houou Kyutama's power, including immortality.

This form shares many similarities to his original form, though his usual shoulder armor is absent. Elements of Tsurugi's Houou Soldier Form is presented by the Houou Soldier's symbol tatted over various areas of his body, including the entirety of his wingspan and face. He also wears a tattered remnants of Tsurugi's clothes, which remained after his metamorphosis. Physical changes aside, his possession of Tsurugi has also altered Don Armage's own personality, incorporating the qualities of Tsurugi into his own.

However, the power of the Houou Kyutama is also Don Armage's weakness, as it restricts Don Armage's possession of Tsurugi, preventing him from taking complete control of Tsurugi's body. Though Don Armage had managed to absorb Shou Ronpo along with the other Kyurangers (with the exception of Lucky) into his own body as well, Lucky was able to make use of his plan to get all 12 Kyutamas into Don Armage's body so as to weaken him and free all of the other Kyurangers, including Tsurugi, from Don Armage himself.

Appearances: Episodes 46-47.

Don Armage after his separation from Tsurugi

Don Armage's final form after absorbing the universe's inhabitants

After being separated from Tsurugi, Don Armage reverts to a form appearing similar to Don Quervo, though lacking all of the crow-like details and wings and with Don Armage's original head instead.

By converting all of the universe's inhabitants into Planetium and absorbing it into his body, Don Armage's head is transformed into a more heavenly-like appearance, with a giant, spiked, Ouroboros-like ring on his back, all while retaining Don Quervo's armor.

Unfortunately, the side-effect result of his defeat like what happen when he absorbed all Kyurangers (except Lucky) into his body remained the same, due to many civilians’ fighting spirit inspired by those Rangers are also becoming stronger to weaken Armage from the inside as well, reverting Armage back to his incomplete final form in the process.

Appearances: Episodes 47-48.

Powers and Abilities

Don Armage using Repulsion Shockwave to punish Eriedrone.

After fusing with Quervo, Don Armage, in the form of Don Quervo, is able to execute the following abilities: Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.45: Tsurugi's Life and Earth's CrisisTvicon.png TV STORY-Space.46: Between Hope and Despair

  • Replication: Don Quervo can create copies of Don Armage's original form.
  • Forcefield: When Don Quervo resided within Dr. Anton's Super Big Class Moraimars, he is able to project a forcefield protecting it from attacks.
  • Giant Tsuyoindaver Creation: Don Quervo is able to create giant Tsuyoindavers, even via his projection form.
  • Dark Energy Ball: Don Quervo is able to fire a giant dark energy ball from his head.
  • Dark Energy Slash: Using his sai, he can generate slashes powerful enough to knock even Tsurugi Ohtori out of his transformation.
  • Despair Illusion: By generating an energy manifestation of the Karasu Kyutama, Don Quervo can trap others into an illusion world filled with despair. He used this on Lucky, though the latter was able to escape.

After possessing Tsurugi, Don Armage possesses the following abilities: Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.46: Between Hope and Despair

  • Planetium Absorption: Don Armage is able to absorb Planetium to make his body stronger. He is also able to convert an individual's body into Planetium as well, as was done with Shou Ronpo and the other Kyurangers (sans Lucky) after they were defeated. However, this proved to be his weakness as well, since absorbing the Kyurangers meant absorbing their Kyutama as well, and with Lucky ramming his own Kyutama into Don Armage's body as well, the power of all 12 Kyutama effectively hindered his possession of Tsurugi, allowing Lucky to free all of his comrades revived. Nevertheless, Don Armage converted everyone else in the universe into Planetium and absorbed them into his body, resulting in his transformation into his final form.
  • Immortality: As a result of possessing Tsurugi, Don Armage gains the power of the Houou System as well. By using his ability to absorb Planetium, Don Armage can potentially restore his immortality as well. This also has the indirect effect of rejuvenating Tsurugi's body after he was separated from Tsurugi.
  • Planetium Blast: Don Armage is able to gather enough Planetium to fire a powerful blast. This was used to kill Shou Ronpo and almost completely destroyed the Kyuranger's mecha.


  • Dark Scythe (ダークサイズ Dāku Saizu): A scythe he wields in his armored form.
  • Armasword (アルマ剣 Arumaken): A pair of short swords wielded in both his Don Quervo and final forms.
  • Houou Dark Scythe (ホウオウダークサイズ Hōō Dāku Saizu): The scythe wielded in his phoenix form.
