"Behold a knight's chivalry!"
―Ryusoul Red’s pre-battle catchphrase[src]

"The Brave Knight! Max Ryusoul Red!"
―Max Ryusoul Red's roll call[src]

Koh (コウ ) is Ryusoul Red (リュウソウレッド Ryūsō Reddo), the Red Ranger and leader of the Ryusoulgers.[1] He is 209 years old. [2]

Character History

Koh, along with Asuna and Melt, all lived in the hidden village of the Ryusoul Tribe since they were born.  He and his friends trained day in and out to take on the mantle of the noble warriors known as the Ryusoulgers by training with their respective Masters (in Koh's case, Master Red). However, the Druidons arrived on Earth and began their attack, taking the lives of the Masters, with Koh having been protected by his from a fatal blow by the Druidon General, Tankjoh. After his death and promising to protect the Earth, Koh transforms into Ryusoul Red and battles against the Druidons. After beating their initial assault, Koh and his friends learn that there are two other Ryusoulgers outside the village battling Druidon forces as well and decides to find them and ask them for their help.

Personality

Koh is naive and more child-like than the other Ryusoulgers but is also very loyal to them. In addition, following a knight's code of conduct, he opts for the option with the least amount of innocent bloodshed, as opposed to Towa & Bamba during their first confrontation. A kind, friendly & outgoing young man, he always encourages his team to open up to each other. His valor pushes himself to fight the good fight, even when the odds are stacked against his team. As the Knight of Valor, his fighting style combines power with ferocity and focuses on overwhelming offense. His childlikeness also makes him extremely honest and straightforward and is what enables him to correctly answer DimeVolcano's quiz.

Powers and Abilities

Ryusoul Tribesman Physiology
As a member of the Ryusoul Tribe, he possessed these following abilities:
Longevity
Ryusoul tribespeople age very slowly and can live for hundreds of years.
RyuSouls Clairaudience
Koh can hear the voice of Ancient Kishiryu inside RyuSouls and know what they think.
Durability
His body is very durable. He's still able to stand and fight, after falling on his head from a great height (which a normal human would have died from).

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Notes

  • At 209 years old, Koh is the oldest main Red Ranger in Sentai history.
    • If the fact that Geki was born around 179 million years before 1992 is counted, Koh is the second oldest main Red Ranger.
      • Seeing as Geki was in suspended animation during that period, it's not certain who is biologically older.
    • His actor, Hayate Ichinose, was 21 years old at the time series started.
  • The red trail on the top of Koh's helmet is reminiscent of the plumes some medieval helmets had.
  • Koh's use of the MeraMera Soul is the first time an enhancement mode isn't initiated by either the primary changer or a separate changer used for such forms.
  • The Max Ryusoul Form and device carry similar elements to past upgrade forms or the arsenal of the team:
  • The Max Ryusoul Form is slightly remodeled from Gaisoulg (which Koh himself was host to beforehand), fittingly, as the reformatted armor manifested into the upgrade.
  • Koh is one of the few Red Ranger who not take any part in the last fight with the final villain, as he was killed beforehand.
  • He shares many similarities with Devon from Beast Morphers.
    • Both of their Seasons aired in 2019.
    • They are both Red Rangers.
    • They both have various Power-Up Forms (Ex.Red Fury Mode, MeraMera Ryusoul Red, Beast-X Mode Red Ranger, Max Ryusoul Red, Unnamed Beast-X King Form, and HieHie Ryusoul Red.)
    • Their Zords have Battle Modes that serve as the back bone to their 3 Piece Megazords.
    • They have their own Robotic Sidekicks that are the controllers for their Zords.
  • Both are the first Core Red Ranger to not have a child actor portray in a flashback or outside then since BoukenRed.
