The Dinosaur Lord's Splendid Ninja Scroll!
Juza Yumihari was first seen leading an army of Jukkarage assaulting an ancient "Shinobi Hidden Castle." Juza had been tasked for searching for the "Evil Dragon" said to dwell within go to a secret hidden village that only ninjas can reach. He would collect all of the scrolls to unleash Evil Dragon which would then lay waste to Earth and allow the Kibaoni Army Corps to conquer Earth. The Ninningers, having been made aware of the attack by thier mentor Yoshitaka, arrived at the castle and fought thier way into the castle, Takaharu and Kasumi going to find the Shinobi Scroll guardian. However, Yuza appeared from behind some Shinobi screen with a Jukkarage escort and forced them to stop thier search and transform, sending his minions into battle against them before they took him on. When they did, he was much too strong and forced them out of the room. However, they found the casket where the Shinobi leader supposedly was and Kasumi tied Takaharu to it before tossing the rope out a window, wrapping around the foot of Dragomaru which managed to escape from the army, the casket revealing a dinosaur like person. With the first scroll in the Ninningers' hands, he returned to the Kibaoni Castle where he met with Kyuemon and they decided to go after the Ninningers to get to the Dinosaur Lord.
Later that night, whilst the Ninningers had tea at a cafe bar Takaharu and Tatsunosuke who were still at the Igasaki dojo, Juza led an army of Jukkarage in an attack to try and kidnap the Dinosaur Lord. Kinji appeared and transformed before taking on the army which lasted into the morning at which point Takaharu arrived and helped fight them. Juza unleashed a barrage of arrows personally targeted at Kinji and managed to take him right out of his Starninger form. Takaharu then attacked Juza only to be sent flying back. He then tried to finish them off but the other four Ninningers' Ninja Ichibantou blocked the attacks as the duo's teammates appeared. They then transformed and did their roll call with the Jukkarage and Hitokarage attacking. Once the platoon was destroyed, Yuza attacked the team with a swath of arrows but they recovered and Takaharu took him on in one on one combat. They were initially evenly matched until Takaharu energy slashed him off of a roof at which point the team performed their Consecutive Fury Slashes finisher. However, Juza blocked them with a forcefield before energy slashing them all down. An army of Jukkarage then arrived with a large number of villager hostages and Juza told them to not make a move or he'd start executing them.
Before the Jukkarage could finish them off though, Tatsunosuke arrived and annihilated Juza's barrier with his Terrible Dragon power which also made him human. Unfortunately, Yuza did not care and shot him with an arrow charged with Youkai Sorcery, changing into the new but completely mindless OttomoNin Dinomaru. However, Rodeomaru and Shinobimaru were able to turn him back into an intelligent creature by cutting off his horn only for Juza to enlarge himself where he was then joined by six Gashadokuro. In response, the other Ninningers summoned their OttomoNin and they formed the new Shurikenjin Dino. They almost instantly destroyed the Gasadokuro and were unaffected by a sky full of arrows. They then unleashed a wave of fire which cracked his newly formed shield before they finished him off with the Shurikenjin Dinomic Summer.
Come Back! Shuriken Sentai Ninninger: Ninnin Girls vs. Boys FINAL WARS
Two years after the death of Kyuemon and Gengetsu Kibaoni, Juza Yumihari's hatred of the Ninningers for foiling his plans revived him and he teamed up with Ariake no Kata to aid in her murder of the Ninnin Girls. He told Ariake to leave him to fight them alone and she did so, him successfully taking down the entire team. The girls then transformed only to be completely outclassed and his Three Moon Flower wiped them out, giving Ariake enough fear to revive Mangetsu Kibaoni. Luckily, before he could kill Fuuka's mother, the Ninnin Boys arrived and stopped the arrows, effectively rejoining the team together so he summoned Jukkarage which were quickly wiped out. Kasumi and Fuuka then teamed up against him, taking him down with a devastating double energy slash before unleashing a devastating X-shaped energy slash that finished off Juza Yumihari once and for all.
Juza was not grown this time since Kyuemon had died and become NinninGreen and his explosion meant he couldn't use his personal growth technique.
Super Sentai Battle Base
Juza is among the vast pantheon of villains which appear in the mobile game Super Sentai Battle Base.
Juza Yumihari is a very stereotypical samurai, fighting with absolute calm and even paying respect to those who killed him in his final moments. He never raises his voice above that of a calm demeaner, preparing to emphasise his words instead. However, he is also ruthless and has no qualms about slaughtering innocent villagers if it aids him in his goals.
Powers and Abilities
to be added
- Strength:When Takaharu ambushed him after attacking Kinji, a single punch sent the Red Ranger flying backwards.
- Master Hand to Hand Combatant: Juza was able to fight all six Ninningers at once without breaking a sweat.
- Master Bowman: Juza is an extremely accurate and skilled bowman, being able to unleash a barrage of arrows onto the Rangers from a very distant rooftop.
- Agility: Juza was being able to stream from rooftop to rooftop when duelling Takaharu.
- Force Field: Juza can project a force field to protect himself. It was strong enough to block a variation of the Simultaneous Ninja Violent Slash that involved Kinji as well.
to be added
- Samurai Bow: Juza is armed with a bladed bow with which he performs the Art of Shooting (射法 Shahō) Yojutsu spells:
- Falling Moon Flower (散月花 Sangekka): Juza's signature attack where he uses his bow to fire an arrow into the air that creates multiple arrows that fall on his enemies. After his revival, this became the Scattered Shot but was stronger although it was visually identical to his previous move.
- Archery Technique: Carnage Wave (五月雨 Samidare): A stronger variant where Juza fires multiple arrows at his opponents with one pull of his bow string.
- Archery Technique: May Shower-An even stronger variant where Juza unleashes a litteral downpour of arrows to strike down his foes.
- Archery Technique: Swelling Corpulence (肥大蕃息の術 Hidaihansoku no Jutsu): Using a special red arrow, Juza can perform a version of Kyuemon's Growth Jutsu. This teqnique involves firing said arrow into the sky where it generates a giant corrupted Sealing Shuriken which descends over Yuza and makes him gigantic.
- Energy Empowerment: Juza can charge up his bow with purple energy and unleash a massive horizontal energy slash that is purple but with a dark purple streak through the middle. This wiped out all six Ninningers with one hit.
- Sword Transformation: The bow can also separate into two swords to more effectively fight against superior numbers.
