Instructor Ritchihiker (リッチハイカー教授 Ritchihaikā Kyōju, 16-31):


RitchRitchhiker disguised as a barber

A space consultant who teaches and assists in the improvement of others whether they are good or evil. Instructor Ritchihiker is briefly hired by President Gynamo as his "Evil Director of Human Resources" for the Universal Reckless Driving Tribe Bowzock after Space Cockroach Goki-chan is lost. Ritchihkker serves as the mastermind who devises the plans to deal with the Carrangers and Signalman who is apparently an old enemy of Ritchhiker's. He initially meets the Carrangers whilst training JJ Jetton for combat with them, hoping his training will be their downfall but the monster is destroyed and Ritchihiker's true nature is revealed.

During the Bowzock Festival organized by HH Wasshoishoi, Ritchihiker is accidentally struck by the energy of an evil power originally meant to hit Ichitarou Tenma to be used as group treat, mutating him into RitchiRitchhiker (リッチリッチハイカー RitchiRitchihaikā) and giving him delusional ideas of grandeur.

This leads to his purchase of a powerful mech: the Braking using Gynamo's funds he was saving for his marriage to Zonnette. With his new power, he kicks out Gynamo and Zonette and takes over as leader of the Bowzock by threatening to kill them with Braking.

Ritchiritchhiker pilots the Braking in both of its forms to destroy the Carrangers but only manages to capture RV Robo before Braking is finally destroyed by VRV Robo's Victory Twister. Unable to escape in time, Ritchiritchhiker can only express surprise at the Carrangers' newfound power before going out in a blaze with Braking. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 31: It's a Full Model Change!
