Kakuranger Shuriken

The Kakuranger Shuriken (カクレンジャーシュリケン Kakurenjā Shuriken) is a legendary Nin Shuriken which bears the likeness of NinjaRed and is marked with the kanji for "bun" (), reflecting NinjaRed's special ability of duplicating himself to fight the Youkai. When used in the Ninja Ichibantou, it announces "Kakuranger" (カクレンジャー Kakurenjā).

Transforming from one of the purified Sealing Shuriken claimed by the Ninningers, the Kakuranger Shuriken was granted alongside the Hurricaneger Shuriken when the ninjas earned the approval of Sasuke/NinjaRed and Yousuke Shiina/HurricaneRed. Soon after, the Nin Shuriken were put to use as the Ninningers fought in Shuriken Gattai Shurikenjin against a Giant Yokai Gashadokuro. Utilizing the Kakuranger Shuriken's Hidden Technique, AkaNinger created four illusionary Shurikenjins which simultaneously struck the Yokai. Shinobi 7: Spring Ninja Festival!

With his teammates by AkaNinger incapacitated by Yokai Ittan-momen's transformation spells, AoNinger used the Kakuranger Shuriken to create two duplicates of himself to even their odds against the Yokai. Catching up with Ittan-momen backstage, AoNinger revealed the duplicates were still active as the real Yakumo appeared from behind and used his own spell to force the Yokai to return his teammates back to normal, displaying his prowess as a magic ninja.

Piloting Shurikenjin alone against a succession of Gashadokuro, KiNinger and ShiroNinger used the Kakuranger Shuriken to duplicate themselves, with KiNinger gaining an additional body while ShiroNinger received two clones, making a team of five which allowed them to competently pilot the Giant Robo. This act, however, caused great fatigue to the pair, which soon forced them to cancel the duplication. However, they perservered and continued the fight in their individual OtomoNin.

Fighting three-on-one, the Fuukas used their respective firearms to overwhelm AkaNinger, who attempted to strike back with a Violent Slash only to be countered by a succession of NinjaWhite's Crane Dance, HurricaneBlue's Shadow Dance and ShiroNinger's own Violent Slash, which stripped AkaNinger of his Chozetsu armor.
