|This article is about a/an army of grunts in Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger.|
The Genin Magerappa (下忍マゲラッパ Genin Magerappa, Lit. Low Ninja Magerappa) are Jakanja's henchmen. They are low-ranked ninja that chant "gerappa, gerappa, magemage!" while dancing around. They are armed with a single red kama as their weapon of choice. Their bodies appear to be stitched together and according to their Space Ninja File, they are filled with insects.
Years after the Jankanja disbanded, some remaining the Magerappa served under Sandaaru Jr. and Satarakura Jr. who were under the employment of the Space Empire Zangyack. They were all defeated by a team-up of the Gokaigers and the Hurricanegers.
There were also Magerappas that were under Bat Zhe Ruba in Hurricanger 10 years after.
Several Genin Magerappa were part of an army of past enemy grunts that were fought by the Gokaigers in Los Dark's ghost dimension which housed the 1500 spirits of the villains defeated by the Super Sentai. After losing some of their number in an initial skirmish, the remaining members from each grunt group merged to form the Combined Combatant. Though the stronger opponent, the Combined Combatant proved to be unstable due to internal conflicting among the grunts composing him over who got to finish the pirates off. Taking advantage, the Gokaigers used the Battle Fever J Ranger Keys to destroy the Combined Combatant with the Penta Force cannon.
15 Magerappa were part of a group of 100 revived Yokai that appeared on the day of Hyakki Yakou and were fought by AkaNinger and StarNinger. During the contest between the two Ninningers to defeat the most Yokai, all 15 Magerappa are destroyed by StarNinger using the Shuriken's Bat evoking Sky Ninja Shurikenger.
