|This article is about a/an villain in Uchu Sentai Kyuranger.|
Kukuruga (ククルーガ Kukurūga) is one of the Vice-Shogun of Space Shogunate Jark Matter. He is also responsible for the devastation of the planet Kaien in the Shishi System, and supposed killing Lucky’s father, King Aslan. But in truth, It turns out that it was false, and yet involved with the king’s downfall on turning him into one of Don Armage’s possessed vessels.
Kukuruga was responsible for the devastation wreaked on the planet Kaien in the Shishi System which led to the relocation of their young prince to Luth in the Kojishi System. He also presumably murder Kaien’s king Aslan, the young prince’s father. In reality, it was false, but Kukuruga was involved with the first Kaien King’s downfall on ending up being possessed as one of Don Armage’s host.
After Tecchu's death at the hands of all twelve Kyurangers, Don Armage finally summoned both Kukuruga and Akyanba against the Kyurangers.
His past self was then seen, where he was seen lacking his future self's bazooka and his weapon was a sword.
However, he was resurrected as a giant by Don Armage alongside Akyanba and Tecchu, before he was defeated by KyurenOh 01*02*05*08*09 and Gigant Houou. But, when the team returned to the future, he was still alive again alongside Akyanba.
Kukuruga was ultimately recreated by Doctor Anton as Akyachuuga (アキャチューガ Akyachūga), a fusion of himself and fellow Vice Shoguns Akyanba and Tecchu. They were sent to the Minami Juuji System to defend planet Southern Cross's core against the Kyurangers but were finally destroyed by KyurenOh (01-02-03-05-11), RyuTeiOh (07-09-10), and Gigant Houou using Battle Orion Ship as a cannon.

Behind the Scenes
- Kukulruga is voiced by Naoya Uchida (内田 直哉 Uchida Naoya) who previously played Tatsuya Midorikawa/Denzi Green in Denshi Sentai Denjiman, Raiken in Engine Sentai Go-Onger: Boom Boom! Bang Bang! GekijōBang!! and Rairaiken in episodes 39 and 40 of Engine Sentai Go-Onger. His suit actor is Masato Tsutamune (蔦宗正人 Tsutamune Masato), who also portrayed the monster form of Scorpio in the series.
- His design might be based on Kukulkan.
- His facial features resembled Kajimerian Ben G, Mangetsu Kibaoni, and Juza Yumihari. However, he resembled Ben G more for the cyborg look.
- This may have been intentional due to Uchida's former role as Tatsuya Midorikawa/DenziGreen, who was both a police officer himself, as well as mentored by a dog; whereas Ben G was the rival with Doggie Kruger, a dog police officer. However, his role as the villain who (apparently) killed a royalty hero's parent (Aslan for Lucky, Ahim's parents for Ahim de Famille) is much more similar to Zatsurig.
- His bodily design also bears some similarity to Cyborg from DC Comics.
