"Blazing Lion! GaoRed!"
―GaoRed's roll call[src]

Kakeru Shishi (獅子 走 Shishi Kakeru) is GaoRed (ガオレッド Gao Reddo), leader of the Gaorangers. For most of the series, he is simply called Red (ガレッド Reddo) by his teammates.

He was a 24 year old veterinarian (as of 2001) before becoming chosen by GaoLion to become GaoRed. He was the last chosen of the Gaorangers, but has an affinity for animals. His other Power Animals are GaoGorilla and GaoFalcon.

Personality

Friendly, warm, and good-natured, Kakeru was chosen by GaoLion to be the leader. He wants to protect all life on earth and he loves animals, especially his Yellow Lab "Choco." Two of his common sayings are "I am a veterinarian" and "I'm full of motivation!"

Later appearances

Hurricaneger vs. Gaoranger

Kakeru, along with the core Gaorangers, got their powers stolen by Space Ninja Group Jakanja and were held as hostages. His team was saved by the Hurricanegers, and got their powers back when Tsukumaro arrives.

After the battle, Kakeru sat with Yousuke Shiina to examine Hamster Curator but couldn't figure out how to turn him into a human. Kakeru then kissed the cutesy hamster, much to Yousuke's surprise. In the end, the Gaorangers had final handshakes with the Hurricanegers and Goraigers before dissolved and returned to their normal lives. Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger vs. Gaoranger

Gokaiger

Legend War

Years later, Kakeru fought alongside not only his own team, but every single Sentai ranger in existence, against the Empire of Zangyack when it attacked the Earth in the Great Legend War. After fighting against hundreds of Gormin and their Zgormin commanders. Akarenger noticed the fleet moving towards them, he gathered all the Rangers together and gave them the order to sacrifice their powers to wipe out the first invasion's armada. The GaoRed powers are later used by Captain Marvelous via the Ranger Keys. Ep. 1: The Space Pirates Appear Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle

Lion, Run

GaoRed's Legend Shift

The Gokaigers arrived on Animarium where they engaged Zangyack forces in battle, the conflict attracted the attention of GaoLion who proceeded to knock everyone off the island. When the Gokaigers were about to get back up to Animarium they were warned by Kakeru not to go and Captain Marvelous refused to take heed. Ahim de Famille, was wounded and Kakeru tended to her wounds in his office. The veterinarian revealed himself as GaoRed with Don pleading for his help with the vet explaining that only Gao Lion can unleash the Gaoranger Keys' power. At this time, they were contacted that their crew-mates were fighting Action Commander Bowser and the Gormin.

Kakeru watched the Gokaigers' fight and was astonished by the Gokaigers' saving people in their own way before they used the Gaoranger Keys to defeat the Sugormin with the Hyakujuuken before finishing Bowser with the Gokai Blast. When Bowser and the Sugormin were enlarged, GokaiOh's wheel on it's back was disabled, preventing any of the keys to work. However, GaoLion's acceptance enabled them to summon him from Animarium with the Gaoranger Keys as he and GokiaOh combined into Gao GokaiOh to take out the Sugormin before destroying Bowser. As Kakeru walked off, the pirates thanked their new ally as they sail off. Ep. 9: Lion, Run

Farewell Space Pirates

After the defeat of Ackdos Gill, the Gokaigers returned all the Ranger Keys to the former Sentai heroes, resulting in Kakeru and his teammates getting their powers back. Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates

Super Hero Taisen

The Gaorangers, alongside other Sentai, emerge through a dimensional wall.

Kakeru, alongside his team (bar GaoSilver), among the majority of the Super Sentai heroes, was caught up in the "Super Hero Taisen" incident which eventually resulted in the Super Sentai teams and Kamen Riders joining forces to defeat both Dai-Zangyack and Dai-Shocker. During the final battle he is seen fighting Deratsueigar. Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen

"Come to think of it, Reds has the easiest job. All he has to do is trust his comrades."
―Part of his farewell speech to Yamato Kazakiri[src]

He, GingaGreen and VulShark faced Zyuoh Eagle, the only combatant of the Oddball Team. Even though they overwhelmed him in numbers, he eventually turned the table, with Gao Red defeated by Zyuoh Gorilla's power. Detransformed, Kakeru commented on Yamato's passion as a Red, a necessary feature to motivate their teammates and maintain the mutual trust. Advising Yamato to never give up, Kakeru ended his speech with his catchphrase "I'm so ready for this" before disappeared. Battle2: The Secretive Armor of Mystery

The GaoRed Ranger Key.

The GaoRed Ranger Key (ガオレッドレンジャーキー Gao Reddo Renjā Kī) is Kakeru Shishi's personal Ranger Key and what became of his powers after he along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.

This key along with the majority of the Ranger Keys were collected by the Red Pirates and later used by the Gokaigers. The GaoRed Ranger Key was mainly used by Captain Marvelous (Gokai Red), who used it to fight as GaoRed. It was also used by Joe Gibken (Gokai Blue) and Gai Ikari (Gokai Silver) on one occasion each.

The Gaoranger keys, along with all the Ranger Keys of the first 33 Super Sentai, were briefly taken by the Black Cross King and turned into Ranger puppets that were fought by the Gokaigers and the Goseigers. Splitting up, the puppet GaoRed was defeated as part of a group of surviving Red warrior keys by Gokai Red and Super Gosei Red. Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. Kakeru received his key and became GaoRed once more. Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates
