"It is most delightful! Struggle all you wish! You are all merely cards in play!"
―First word after terrorizing random citizens.[src]

―First when confronted by the Kiramagers.[src]

"Why?! How is this happening?! You shouldn't even know what the right card is!"
―Reaction when he started to lose to Sena.[src]

―Reaction after having lost at karuta cards to Sena.[src]

"And so the mask... is made to bid farewell--!"
―Final words before his death.[src]

The Hyakunin Isshu Jamen (ヒャクニンイッシュ邪面 Hyakunin Isshu Jamen) was a Hyakunin Isshu-themed gold body Jamenshi of the Dark Empire Yodonheim whose dark energy was used to release Heian-kyō Basra

History

The Hyakunin Isshu Jamen was sent by Carantula to torture the people of Earth with one of thier most beloeved traditions and use it to wipe them out so that Yodonheim could conquer the planet. The Hyakunin Isshu Jamen was first seen attacking Sector U7 in Tokyo and began to trap terrorize random citizens when Juru, Tametomo and Sena arrived only to be completely ignored by the annoying Jamen who stuck various karuta cards on the crowd's foreheads. Sena recognised the ramblings from a game she played as a child but had little time to contemplate since Shiguru and Sayo then arrived and they transformed to fight the Jamenshi. However, they were forced to stand still when the Hyakunin Isshu Jamen challenged them to a game of finding the real karuta card and he began to read out poem seventeen from the (AKA "Impassioned Gods"). Luckily, Sena recognised it because she knew it ended with "the red mists" so was able to grab and throw the card into the air where it exploded safely. Sena was horrified that a seemingly normal card just exploded so he explained that they'd blow the victim's head off if he managed to read out the whole verse before the actual card was removed. He resumed his game with another card and read out poem 74 (AKA "though I prayed") but she knew it ended with "I never asked" and was thus able to rescue another victim by slashing it off with her Kiramai Sword. Enraged, he reminded her that failure was death for the victims before reading out poem 68 (AKA "may the time") but she saved that victim too (who would later turned out to be her old friend Makino who she played karuta with in the past). The Hyakunin Isshu Jamen prepared to use a fourth card but Shiguru used his Kiramai Sword to knock the cards into the air where the remaining three Kiramagers obliterated them with thier Kiramai Shots which made all of his victim's karuta cards vanish as well. Now defenceless, the Hyakunin Isshu Jamen was forced to retreat by throwing a citizen and running off.

Later, the Hyakunin Isshu Jamen attacked four of the Kiramagers at Makino's dojo just as they finished learning all about the Hyakunin Isshu only this time Galza had accompanied him to do the card reading. With the Kiramagers reeling from this revelation, Galza was able to successfully read off 10 (AKA "friends and strangers" which allowed the Jamenshi to trap Tametomo in a karuta card. Sena and Juru quickly arrived after a drive around in Mashin Mach to clear her head just as Makino and the Hyakunin Isshu Jamen knelt facing one another whilst Galza began to read off poem 33 (AKA "spring has come") but Makino identified the card and nullified the Jamen's powers. Unfortunately, Galza used his dark magic to corrupt a karuta card to reflect and insult Sena which trapped Sayo and Shiguru as well, transforming all other karuta cards into make-believe ones in the process. The Hyakunin Isshu Jamen then revealed that his game ("Yodon 100 Verses") was named as such because it was thier own special brand of karuta so they could pretty much make up whatever they wanted. Sena just had time to get advice from Makino before she too was trapped by the Jamenshi for failing to get the last card at which time she challenged the Jamen to a play-off.

Sometime later, she arrived in a dojo and knelt with the Hyakunin Isshu Jamen as Galza began reading off a card about destruction being the Yodon way which Sena got right before the Jamenshi to his utter shock. She won another eight games this way to the Jamen's despair as he complained that her knowledge should be impossible but she then revealed that she was just going off which ones he leaned towards. She then won the last two games before he could even move and he was horrified at his own defeat as he was forced to release his captives. Enraged, the Hyakunin Isshu Jamen kicked away all of the karuta cards and abandoned his game gimmick entirely in place of brawling at which point the Kiramagers transformed again. Sena went first with three slashes and a swoop kick but the Jamen dodged all of them, was unfazed by blasts from Tametomo and Sayo's Kiramai Shots, and blocked Shiguru and Juru's Kiramai Swords before punching them down. Sena took him on a second time but, though he did deflect several blows, she dove behind him and slashed out his legs and hit him with a head strike and bashed him back with a hit from the hilt. He then unleashed his Hundred Verses Shuriken but energy slashes from all of the Kiramai Shots obliterated the karuta cards and meant that he had used up his entire arsenal of cards. Now defenceless, the Hyakunin Isshu Jamen was finished off by the Kiramai Rush Stream with him only being able to bemoan his defeat before falling to his knees and exploding.

Personality

The Hyakunin Isshu Jamen was a very playful and energetic Jamenshi who even outright ignored the arrival of Juru, Sena, and Tametomo in favour of tormenting random people. He also loved to toy and play games with his victim's to the point that he started playing even when the Kiramagers showed up. However, his undoing came because Sena's childhood experiences allowed her to sabotage his schemes and undo his plans.

Powers and Abilities

  • Durability-The Hyakunin Isshu Jamen took point blank blasts from the Kiramai Shots and blocked the Kiramai Swords with his bare arms but was unfazed.
  • Hyakunin Isshu Knowledge-The Hyakunin Isshu Jamen showed significant knowledge of the Hyakunin Isshu and it's contents throughout his appearance.
  • Agility-The Hyakunin Isshu Jamen was quick and agile enough to dodge and jump away from two slashes and a swing kick from Sena and her Kiramai Sword.
  • Karuta Card Bomb Projection: The Hyakunin Isshu Jamen could fire Hyakunin Isshu Poem Cards that stuck onto his victims' foreheads. If an opponent didn't remove the correct card from the victims' foreheads before he finished the verse associated with the card, the card would explode.
  • Hyakunin Isshu Trapping: If an opponent lost to Hyakunin Isshu Jamen, the Hyakunin Isshu Jamen could trap them within the Hyakunin Isshu cards on his head by smothering them with dark purple Yodon energy. If his opponent won, any victims he previously trapped will be released from the cards.

Arsenal

  • 100 Verses Shuriken: The Isshu Jamen could throw Hyakunin Isshu cards into the air where they'd at his opponents like razor sharp missiles.

Weaknesses

  • Knowledge of the Hyakunin Isshu-Anyone with extensive knowledge of the Hyakunin Isshu could identify one of his cards and undo his efforts.
  • Losing-If his opponent won a game, any victims he previously trapped will be released from the cards on his head.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Notes

  • As his name suggests, the Hyakunin Isshu Jamen is based on the Isshu Ogura Hyakunin Isshu which is a classical Japanese anthology of one hundred Japanese poems by one hundred poets.
  • His Jamen gives him a slightly similar appearance to Uden and Saden from the previous season, Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger.
  • The Hyakunin Isshu Jamen was the first karuta-themed Sentai Monster since Yokai Fudagaeshi from Shuriken Sentai Ninninger.
  • The Hyakunin Isshu Jamen's method of detonating objects when incorrect answers in a word-related challenge are given made him similar to Fast-Talking Wanderer from Gosei Sentai Dairanger.
    • However, unlike Fast-Talking Wanderer, whose word challenges waere tongue-twisters, Hyakunin Isshu Jamen used karuta.
  • Hyakunin Isshu Jamen's Hyakunin Isshu Trapping ability makde him similar to Dora Boogaranan from Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger and Pot Taoist who was also Dairanger.
    • The only difference between the three is the picture that shows up on them, and where the picture is placed on them:
      • When Hyakunin Isshu Jamen used his Hyakunin Isshu Trapping, the face of the beaten person shows up on a random card on his head.
      • When Dora Boogaranan used his energy tongue and his normal tongue to eat the Zyurangers, a picture of the eaten Zyuranger's helmet appeared on his stomach.
      • When Pot Taoist trapped any of the Dairanger in his Pot on his head a picture of the Dairanger's Motif appeared on his pot: a Phoenix for Rin, a Pegasus for Shoji, a Kirin for Kazu, and a Shishi for Daigo.
