"Beast Star! Ookami Blue!"
―Ookami Blue's roll call[src]

"Say your prayers!"
―Ookami Blue's battle cry[src]

Garu (ガル Garu) is Ookami Blue (オオカミブルー Ōkami Burū, lit. Wolf Blue), the Blue Ranger of the Kyurangers. He is the last of his Wolfman clan and was found on the planet Jagjag with a Kyutama around his neck. He is the sixth Kyuranger to be awakened. He usually ends some sentences with his name or "~ki". After the permanent defeat of Don Armage, Garu traveled around the universe with Lucky.

Aged 35, Garu was born on September 6th.[1]

Character History

Garu before.PNG

Garu is a wolfman-like alien and the only known survivor of his tribe: the rest of his people were slaughtered for attempting to resist Jark Matter. At an unknown point, he found the Ookami Kyutama, but the trauma of losing his kind left him unwilling to fight, and unable to use it.

Garu was minding his own business when he came upon a crash-landed Lucky in Jagjag. Lucky and the Kyurangers realized he is a bearer of a Kyutama. Garu, however, claims fighting Jark Matter is a futile endeavor, as he's lost his entire clan to them. He is provoked by Lucky to fight, and on cue, Jark Matter appears. Eventually, Garu regains his fighting spirit after watching the Kyurangers fight, and uses the Transformation Controller Seiza Blaster with his Kyutama to become Ookami Blue, joining the Kyurangers in the fight. Victorious, he and fellow new Kyuranger Lucky are welcomed onto the Orion and inducted into the Rebellion by the acting bridge commander Raptor 283.

Garu bears witness as the crew welcomes the BN Team.

Sent by Raptor 283 to follow Lucky to Zigama, which he had pinpointed as the location of the next Kyuranger, Garu and the others fought against that planet's Jark Matter garrison before being forced to fall back after facing the powerful Karō Eridron. Lucky's hunch ultimately bore fruit as the team welcomed Naga Rei and Balance to the Orion, the pair of thieves having helped them take down Zigama's Daikaan Gamettsui having respectively transformed into Hebitsukai Silver and Tenbin Gold.

Introduced by Raptor to commander Shou Ronbou, the seven Kyurangers were sent to save the planet Needle from destruction at the hands of the Jark Matter. Engaged by a hostile new Kyuranger, Stinger, Garu and the others bar Lucky and Champ were struck by the Sasori System native's sting. However, the afflicted Kyurangers ultimately recovered in time to destroy the Moraimarz that was draining Needle's Planet Jume. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.3: The Man from the Desert Star

Garu was part of the five-man team which destroyed the Moraimarz piloted by Daikaan Mozuma. Back on the Orion, while Lucky and Kotaro were still on Earth, the others discovered that they had lost control of the ship and that they had been sent on a direct course to the Sun, causing a sharp rise in temperature much to the discomfort of Garu and the other organics. The ship and crew were ultimately saved, however, as Mozuma was destroyed by Shishi Red and Koguma Skyblue, causing his microbic extensions to dissipate and return control of the ship.

Garu was among the crew left behind to perform repairs on the Orion following the ordeal with the Sun as a team was led by Shou to recover the Tomo Kyutama on Earth. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.11: Three Kyutama to Save The Universe

Garu remained on the Orion with Balance and the commander while a team was sent to acquire the Ho Kyutama on Vela; receiving an update from Stinger and Champ, they learnt that Scorpio had been made Karo of the Sasori System and sent to Earth.

Mistaking him for long lost kin, Garu embraces Doggie Kruger.

Garu was among the team whom pursued Madakko through a black hole which they found to be a wormhole leading to an alternate Earth free of Jark Matter. With Shou and Hammie, Garu was arrested by Dekarangers Senichi Enari and Koume Kodou on suspicion of being Alienizers due to their lack of Visas, and brought to the Neo DekaBase. The situation was soon cleared up by Special Police Dekaranger chief Doggie Kruger, a canine alien who bore a curious resemblence to the wolfman, which briefly overwhelmed Garu. Finding that the wormhole would soon close and leave them stranded, Garu, Shou and Hammie boarded RyuTeiOh, using the DekaWing Cannon provided by the Dekarangers to keep the wormhole in time for Lucky and Naga to defeat Madakko and retrieve the Rashinban Kyutama.

Seeking the Kyutama of the Tokei System, the Kyurangers came to the planet Toki and turned the 12 keys needed to unlock it within 30 minutes. Approaching key III, Garu came face to face with his female form and, remembering his humiliation, vanquished it as Ookami Blue. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.25: Planet Toki, the Boy's Determination!

Double Garu

Two giant Tsuyoindavers began to attack and, due to Balance being injured and Koguma Skyblue going to make sure he was okay, Shishi Red acted fast with an activation of the Futago Kyutama to duplicate both Chameleon Green and Ookami Blue to have enough team members to pilot KyurenOh. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.28: BN Thieves, Breakup...

After the battle was over, he went with Lucky to travel throughout the galaxy before coming to Earth for Spada's restaurant. He and Lucky loses control of their space bike and ended up crashing in front of the entrance with Garu having a backache because of it.

Other Events

Zyuohger vs. Ninninger

Through unknown circumstances, the nine Kyurangers made a brief appearance on an Earth where Jark Matter was not present. Instead, the Kyurangers arrived to intervene against the Deathgalien before they could interfere with the Zyuohgers' fight with the Ninningers for the future of Super Sentai against Gillmarda. With Ookami Blue fighting off Quval alongside Sasori Orange, the Kyurangers eventually forced the Deathgalien to retreat before taking their leave with their appearance observed by the Zyuohger ally Bud, who realized that the future was in safe hands.

Personality

Garu is short-tempered and impulsive, like a wild beast. The trauma of losing his people caused Garu to lose the will to fight until he saw the efforts of Lucky and the Kyurangers, after which he renewed his desire to fight back the evil shogunate and avenge his tribe. Garu is also one of the least-intelligent members of the team, as he fully believed Champ's story as "Yagyuu Juubee" while the other Kyurangers saw right through it.

After being inspired by Lucky, Garu has become essentially his follower as he vividly follows Lucky's lead and fuels almost everything he does with this same vigor. Even when Lucky is down he comes back to this inspiration and is quick to help him, as well as his allies when they need him. He also has taken the leadership position of the team when Lucky is incapacitated. 

Powers and Abilities

Wolfman Physiology
As a wolfman, he has some wolf-like abilities, including:
Feral Fighting Style
Garu relies on his savage nature in fights, jumping on his opponents and using swiping motions. This is also why the Ooinu Kyutama has no effect on him as he already utilizes a similar fighting style.
Enhanced Hearing
Garu has excellent hearing, being able to hear Yumepakkun harassing humans from a significant distance.

Ookami Blue

When empowered by Shishi Red Moon's moonlight, he can walk upright and act more gently, unlike his usual bestial style. He can also react and move very fast, and can effectively use martial art-like punching techniques. He also receives an intelligence boost under the effects of the moon as he appears to be a bit more sophisticated in speech and mannerisms.

Notes

  • Of the 88 modern constellations he represents Lupus.
  • Garu comes from "garuru", the Japanese onomatopoeia for a wolf's growl.
  • Garu is the first Sentai Warrior to have Heterochromia iridium, a condition in which the colored part of the iris is multicolored.
  • Garu's being and stats being affected by the Hikari Kyutama's Moon Mode is a reference to the mythology of werewolves and the moon.
    • While werewolves become more savage and feral under the effects of the moon, Garu is a subversion of this trope as he becomes calmer and more tactical.
    • The symbol used by Moon Mode and on the Hikari Kyutama is a crescent moon, whereas werewolves transform under full moons.
