Super Ninja Beasts

Super Ninja Beasts (超忍獣 Chōninjū): five spirit animals which combine into Kakure Daishogun with the command "Five-God Fusion" (五神合体 Goshin Gattai). Like the God Generals, the Chounin Beasts are able to speak and possess wills of their own. Unlike the Juushou hower, the Kakuranger do not physically merge with the Beasts, rather they board internal cockpits to control them. In order to obtain the Ninja Beasts, the Kakurangers were forced to temporarily disband and set off on individual quests to find the Shinobi Scrolls (忍之巻 Shinobi no Maki), which allowed them to call forth and pilot the mighty Chounin Beasts with the command "Hidden Style: Super Ninja Beast Jutsu!" (隠流・超忍獣の術 Kakureryū: Chōninjū no Jutsu).

Design

PLEX designed Kakure Daishogun. Its design is based on lightly armored ninja, most evident in the vented headgear and barefoot/sandal-like foot design. It also utilizes add on pieces that reflect two basic types of hand attacks, the fist, and the closed palm.

Its design as a secondary mecha - a quicker, more streamlined alternative to the Muteki Shogun. The Frog, Wolf, and Bear have a simple streamlined design, much like old Japanese art, while the Crane recalls the look of origami (paper cranes). Saruder, on the other hand, is a more direct representation of the legendary Monkey King, which last inspired the design of the Mythical Chi Beast RyuseiOh.

Kakure Daishogun has seen several deluxe releases, action figures, collectible figures, and even remote-control versions.


Notes

  • The Ninja Beasts are the only mecha featured in Kakuranger to utilize cockpits as opposed to the Kakurangers physically merging with their respective machine. Daishogun, however, lacks a shared cockpit, suggesting that the Kakurangers join their consciousness in order to control him.
