|This article is about a/an ranger in Uchu Sentai Kyuranger.|
Lucky (ラッキー Rakkī) is Shishi Red (シシレッド Shishi Reddo, lit. Lion Red), the Red Ranger of the Kyurangers. An extra-terrestrial human from Planet Luth (惑星ルース Wakusei Rūsu) in the Shishi System. Chronologically, he was the fifth Kyuranger to be awakened. He is later revealed to be a distant descendant of the legendary warrior Orion, and gains an alternate White Ranger form. He is also the heir to the throne of his real homeworld Kaien, becoming the king of said planet and succeeding his father Aslan, who was thought to be murdered by Jark Matter Vice Shogun Kukuruga, but is revealed to have been turned into one of Don Armage’s possessed servants until he sacrifices himself to save the universe and Lucky. Two years after defeating Don Armage, Lucky decided to fulfill his dream of seeing the entire universe with Garu at his side.
Aged 20, Lucky was born on July 7th.
Contrary to his name and his title as the Luckiest Man in the Universe, he was not born that way, even though he says himself he was born "unlucky". When Lucky was still a child, his father, Aslan presented Lucky with a small lion companion named Caesar to ensure Lucky would never be alone if something bad might happen to his parents. Some time later, he was caught up within an incident with everything around him being destroyed. Having been separated from his parents, with their fates unknown, Lucky and his pet Caesar, along with their father’s servant Jiiya were sent away from their original home planet Kaien in an escape pod to the planet Luth where he grew up. After growing up as a young adult, Lucky began travelling around the universe to search for information about what happened to his parents, much to Jiiya’s disapproval for his departure, just for Lucky’s own safety. Lucky also left Caesar under Jiiya’s care and guarding planet Luth.
Traveling from planet Luth, Lucky came across a meteor shower and crashed onto the surface of the planet Crotos where he came upon three Kyurangers battling Space Shogunate Jark Matter. Impressed by them he then decides that he will be one of them. With his cruiser crashed, the Kyurangers took him back to the Orion where Raptor 283 told him their story. He attempts to get a Transformation Controller Seiza Blaster to work, but can't without a Kyutama, so he makes off with the Seiza Blaster to find one. He crash lands (again) on Jagjag and meets Garu, who possesses a Kyutama. Garu's hesitance to fight annoys him and he tries to push Garu. The Kyurangers find him and so do Jark Matter. In the ensuing fight, Jark Matter throws him into space, but the Kyutama awakens in front of him and allows him to change into Shishi Red. As Shishi Red he has full control of his powers and discovers that he has access to the Shishi Voyager which has the ability to dock other voyagers as well as form a Giant Robo. Upon defeating Jark Matter in the battle and gaining new comrades in the Kyurangers, along with newly-minted Ookami Blue, Garu, he is welcomed by Raptor 283 as part of the Rebellion.
During a briefing on the Rebellion's mission by Raptor 283, Lucky pinpointed the location of the next Kyuranger to the planet Zigama, taking off in the Shishi Voyager to find them. Coming across a pair of thieves, Balance and Naga Rei, Lucky believed them to the bearers of Kyutamas themselves and joined them the way to their mark, a precious gem in a Jark Matter facility. However, instead of being stealthy, they are discovered because of Lucky looking for a fight. Naga is surprised as Balance betrays Lucky by lashing him with his cables, in full view of Jark Matter. However, Naga is angered and chooses to stay with Lucky. He watches as Balance asks to see the gem as reward and is allowed. Lucky and Naga are put on a death trap to be executed immediately. Balance intervenes by controlling the death trap. Lucky's shot proved to be fruitful as Naga Rei and Balance earned their Kyutamas and fought with the Kyurangers to take down Zigama's Daikaan Gamettsui.
Lucky appeared before Emu Hojo, now accompanied by Asuna Karino, again as he was facing off an example of his own enemies, a trio of Bugsters from Neironzu. Offering his assistance, Lucky was blasted off a ledge by the Bugsters only to luckily have his fall broken by landing on an Instigate Energy Item before joining Emu in transforming, with Ex-Aid assuming the Double Action Gamer which he split in two to even the odds. Taking out their swords, Shishi Red met the Bugster trio in a skirmish alongside the Level XX Ex-Aid duo, with Shishi Red personally engaging the Level 20 Motors Bugster. The fight was soon ended when Motors' Level 40 fellows disengaged and left, leaving him to be defeated by the three heroes' triple slash, freeing his human host. Canceling their transformations, Lucky was thanked for his assistance by Emu, leading him to question if the Kamen Rider had any comrades of his own. Assured by Emu that he had three reliable allies, Lucky voiced to the doctor that he was lucky and that he should cherish them before bidding him farewell as he took his leave.
Team-Up with the Dekarangers and Gavan
While pursuing Madako to recover the Rashinban Kyutama, Lucky was sucked into a wormhole along with Hammy, Garu, Naga and Shou. Lucky and Naga first fought Geki (Space Sheriff Gavan), who had been tricked into thinking that she was innocent and the Kyurangers were trying to steal something that was rightfully hers. Soon after that was corrected, the three were joined by Ban (DekaRed), who warned Naga and Lucky that the wormhole was closing; despite the best efforts of the Dekarangers and Kyurangers to slow it down, they only had thirty minutes before it closed entirely. It was from Ban and Geki that Lucky learned about both his Sentai legacy and about the police - a profession that did not exist in his own universe thanks to it being ruled by the militaristic Jark Matter.Lucky, Naga, Ban and Geki together defeated Madako, forcing her to retreat and return the stolen Kyutama. Upon the Kyurangers' return to their own dimension, Lucky vowed to create a peaceful universe that could put its faith in the police once more.
Meeting and Befriending the Twelfth Kyuranger
When the Argo resurfaced with a cold sleep chamber inside, Lucky and Kotaro eagerly opened it up to find Ohtori Tsurugi inside. Awakening from a 300-year slumber, Tsuguri quickly demonstrated his power as the Houhou soldier. The next time they met, however, he asked Lucky and the other Kyurangers to stop fighting and let him handle the responsibility of defeating Jark Matter on his own.
Soon afterwards, Lucky received his Kyuranger license and most vehemently rejected the idea that Tsurugi should be acknowledged as a comrade with one. Afterwards, most of the other Kyurangers were captured by Gaburra, leaving Lucky and Tsurugi as the only ones spared. Lucky then learned that Tsurugi was being standoffish because of his feelings from his comrades dying during the first war against Dom Armage. Essentially, Tsurugi confiscated Lucky's Kyutama and gave him an ultimatum; be his shield or stay out of the way. Lucky pursued him and counteroffered that he would be a fighting shield - and offer that Tsurugi accepted, after some coaxing from Shou Ronpou. The three of them freed the other Kyurangers by defeating Gaburra. In response to Lucky and Tsurugi losing the fight against their giant forms, the other ten giant Kyutamas reacted and formed a circle around the two, enabling them to create the Kyutamajin and fight as a single robot. Afterwards, Lucky acknowledged Tsurugi as a comrade by personally giving him the final Kyuranger license.
Seeking the Kyutama of the Tokei System, the Kyurangers came to the planet Toki and turned the 12 keys needed to unlock it within 30 minutes. Approaching key I, Lucky engaged an illusion of the late Karo Eriedrone, destroying him with the power of Taiyou Shishi Red.
Rise of Shishi Red Orion
After acquiring the Tokei Kyutama and following Naga's brainwash by Akyanba into Hebitsukai Metal the Kyurangers were split. Lucky, along with Balance, Hammie, Garu and Kotaro remained in the present day to rescue Naga from Akyanba's control. Following a battle with Akyanba and Hebitsukai Metal the team finds out ORION-gou crashed down and heavily damaged. Lucky quickly realises that something must have happened in the past and uses the Tokei Kyutama to go in the past with his Shishi Voyager.
After arriving in the past he finds his teammates laying down and rushes to check on them. In the same time he encounters Orion, a warrior from the Orion System. Their confrontation is interrupted by a Deathworm who later steals the Tomo Kyutama. Orion quickly blames Lucky for the loss, but Lucky assures him that he'd reclaim it in the future. Then Lucky, Orion and the the remaining Kyurangers (Tsurugi, Stinger, Champ, Raptor, Spada and Shou) battle the Vice-Shoguns, who are in forms different from what they appeared in the present day. During Lucky and Orion's battle with Akyanba a large Kyutama appears to aid them to defeat her, sparking Tsurugi's curiousity. After seemingly defeating Don Armage, Lucky was shot down by an arrow, injuring him severely. The one who did it was revealed to be Don Armage himself.
After unsuccessful attempt to defeat Don Armage once again, Orion and the Kyurangers retreat to the ORION-gou to try and heal Lucky's wounds. While Spada and Raptor deduce that there's little they can do at the moment, Tsurugi decides to use the power of his Houou Kyutama to heal him. Orion quickly objects this as using it may cost Tsurugi's life in the process. However Tsurugi insists on using it and tells Orion that he needs Lucky alive in order to bring the Kyutama that appeared while Lucky and Orion battle side-by-side. Also he mentions that Lucky hails from the Shishi System and connects those two events. After he was healed successfully, Lucky confronts Don Armage once again and the large Kyutama appears again, revealing it to be the Saiko Kyutama. Orion then tells Lucky that he is his distant descendant and that he has blood from both the Shishi and Orion Systems. Then Lucky uses the Saiko Kyutama to transform into Shishi Red Orion and quickly defeats Kukuruga. He then proceeds to battle Don Armage and using the Saiko Kyutama he launches a barrage of the other Kyuranger's weapons at him and defeating him in the process. However after returning in the present he finds out that Don Armage is still alive.
Return and Reclaim Planet Luth and Kaien
After revealing Jark Matter's homeworld, the team heads to the planet Southern Cross to confront Don Armage once again. But before that the team recieves a distress signal from planet Luth in the Kojishi System, from where Lucky was raised. Lucky also hears Ceasar's cry for help and goes to Luth along with Stinger, Garu, Champ, Hammie and Spada. There the team fights the systet's Karo Wunjet, whose goal is to find a legendary machine that's dormant on this planet and attacking Ceasar in process as he deduces that he may know where the machine is. During the fight Lucky is confronted by Jiiya, who recognises him despite Lucky being in his Kyuranger form. Jiiya quckly berates him for abandoning him and Ceasar and it was revealed that Lucky left to search for his parents and not to reach the end of the universe as he said earlier. During a fight between Lucky and Wunjet, Jiiya inteferes and saves Lucky and telling him the truth - Lucky is the heir of the throne of the Shishi System and that he was entrusted by its ruler, King Aslan, to get him to safety. After that battle Lucky asks him why he didn't tell him earler. Jiiya says that he did it for two reasons: the first is to protect him from dying in battle as this would result in no one being able to inherit the throne, and the second reason involved King Aslan himself. He reveals that Aslan is alive, but he has become a servant of Jark Matter and from that the people of Kaien, Lucky's homeworld, suffer.
Now knowing the truth, Lucky heads to the planet Kaien to confront his father. He goes to one of his speeches and he's in shock to see him side by side with Kukuluga and the system's Karo Jumotsu. During a fight with Kukuluga, Lucky finds out that Kukuluga himself was responsible for the planet's destruction. Lucky is then captured by Aslan and Kukuluga, but soon realizes that he is a fake made out of sand that is weak to water. When Lucky is on display for public execution, the other Kyurangers expose and destroy the fake Aslan before defeating Kukuluga, liberating the Leo system.
Wearing a special white Kyuranger jacket made by Stinger, Lucky is crowned the new King of the Leo system. When the Orion continues its journey, however, Lucky changes back to his standard red Kyuranger uniform to symbolize his dedication to fighting as a Kyuranger.
Sudden Family Reunion
During Kyurangers’ raid on Jark Matter’s home planet Southern Cross, he is about to battle a mysterious Jark Matter masked warrior who bested almost every Kyurangers, causing Tsurugi tried to keep Lucky away from this dangerously mysterious masked warrior, while the rest of the Kyurangers head back to the base. When the projectile attacks between ShishiRed and a mysterious warrior clashed where ShishiRed manage to shot the warrior’s mask off from his face, Lucky and Tsurugi eventually found out that the mysterious masked warrior happens to be the real king Aslan, who is actually alive well, but now ended up as one of Don Armage’s possessed servants. Apparently, his reunion with his father is very short when Don Armage reverting Aslan back to his possessed state, recovering the brainwashed mask on the former Kaien king’s face, causing Lucky having conflicted choices whether he should save his father, or the universe first.Strugling to deal with the fact that his father is now an enemy, Lucky begins to be more hesitant in his decisions. This causes Tsurugi to question his dedication to save the galaxy and tells him that hesititating would jeopardise their mission. After a talk with Stinger, Lucky decides to save both the galaxy and his father from Jark Matter's control. The team splits into to with Lucky, Garu, Hammie and Kotaro staying to deal with Aslan. While Aslan bested the four and was about to finish off Lucky, the Shishi Kyutama appears giving Lucky an opening to strike the mask slicing it in half thus freeing Aslan from the control of Don Armage. Later Lucky tries to convince his father not to activate the Black Hole Kyutama manually (after the automatic functionality was negated by Don Armage) as the black hole would destroy him in the process. But Aslan decides to stay since for the first time in his life he has the chance to help his son.
When Tsurugi became Don Armage's new host and a wounded Shou was absorbed into Don Armage along with Kyutama #10, Lucky devised a plan that required all ten remaining Kyurangers to work. Once everyone agreed, Lucky had them spread into groups on the battlefield and fight as long as they could before deliberately losing to Jark Matter forces. He and Hammy made it to Don Armage before Hammy was wounded and every Kyuranger but Lucky was absorbed into Don Armage along with their Kyutamas. After the Saikou Kyutama was destroyed, Lucky punched Don Armage to slip Kyutama #1 inside. The combined force of 11 Kyurangers and 12 Kyutamas inside Don Armage allowed all Kyurangers to violently burst out of Don Armage and join Lucky for the final battle, while he received a repaired Saikou Kyuutama.
After Don Armage was defeated using Kyutamajin, he chose to blast Lucky into space so he could die of hypoxia and cold, hoping that this would enable him to possess Lucky. This plan backfired, however, as a meteor shower enabled Lucky to ride back into the atmosphere and finish Don Armage once and for all.
After Don Armage
Despite taking his place as king of the Leo system, Lucky decided that he wanted to return to seeing the galaxy like before becoming a Kyuranger. Joined by his former teammate Garu, he boraded his space scooter and roamed the universe helping whoever he came across. Two years after Don Armage's defeat, the Kyurangers gathered at Spada's new restaurant. Lucky and Garu's arrival was delayed due to the space scooter breaking, but one push from Lucky allowed the scooter to crash in Spada's courtyard with both passengers alive.

Transformation Lessons ~Let's Star Change Together!~
Having walked around the Orion, Lucky walks in on Hammy as she is maintaining her Seiza Blaster with some clear polish. He asks Hammy to teach him how to pose when doing the "Star Change" (transformation). Hammy agrees. She notes that Lucky shouldn't simply carelessly move around the Kyutama as different movements launch different actions. She also says that her, Champ and Spada have practiced a lot to get it right. Much to her surprise Lucky nails it in his first try.
Lucky acted as a judge for Balance and Naga Rei as they practiced performing a Star Change roll call. The duo tries it the first time, but Lucky rejected it. Then they tried again a few more times only to fail. Their last attempt, which is their standard roll call, earns Lucky's applause.
Chou Super Hero Taisen
Lucky led the five-man team sent by Shou Ronbou to capture Poppy Pipopapo, leading the Kyurangers into a confrontation with the Kamen Rider doctor trio. Lucky fought one-on-one against Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Action Gamer Level 2 before the fight was interrupted by the Galaxian ships.
Later, all nine Kyurangers joined the Chou Shocker Taisen with various Sentai Rangers and Kamen Riders fighting against the Shocker army of the Game World led by Shocker Leader III. Through use of the Futago Kyutama, the complete team fought using a duplicated KyurenOh utilizing all nine Voyagers against the Big Moraimarz Robo piloted by the Oogumo Great Leader, whom they vanquished by fighting alongside the enlarged Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Maximum Gamer Level 99.
Video game appearances
Super Sentai Legend Wars
(Pegasus) Shishi Red (Orion) appears with his team among all Sentai in the mobile game Super Sentai Legend Wars.
Lucky is naive, optimistic, determined, and hyperactive. He has a habit of saying "Yossha lucky!" whenever something good happens, which is often due to his amazing luck. Lucky is incredibly strong-willed, both in his ideals and his goals: he has a tendency to make decisions with barely any evidence and believe in their plausibility no matter how much the facts suggest otherwise. This, combined with his naivety, makes him come across as immature and stupid. However, he has solid instincts and a logic to his actions, paying attention to things that others do not.
He is overdependent on his luck, and quickly became insecure and even panic when his luck ran out, this becoming apparent when he was defeated by Ikargen. In truth, this all stems from his traumatic childhood in the past, leading him to believe that he was born unlucky. In turn, his frequent shouts of "Yossha lucky!" serve as a form of encouragement to himself as he tries his best to stay positive and uphold his unwavering belief in good fortune. He later manages to regain his confidence, which helps him in defeating Ikargen.
Over time, Lucky would mature throughout his battles as a Kyuranger, especially with the revelation of his royal heritage, both as a descendant of the legendary warrior Orion as well as the prince (later king) of his home planet Kaien in the Shishi System. While transformed as Shishi Red Orion, he would carry himself with an air of grandeur. He would turn out to be a competent leader of his team with his unwavering optimism and resilience, while his belief in his amazing luck would continue to persist even after his duties as a Kyuranger ended.
Powers and Abilities
- Devil's Luck: The most notable of Lucky's abilities is his extraordinary luck which provides unintentional benefits to him and his allies. It is so great to the point that he has survived when falling from orbit and pinpoint the remaining Kyuranger in a short amount of time when the Rebellion that had been searching them for long was unable to do so. Furthermore, he himself claimed to be the luckiest man in the universe. Unfortunately, by episode 11, it ran out, rendering him powerless. After a talk with Shou Ronpo and Garu, Lucky regained the confidence he lost and regained his status as the Luckiest Man in the Universe. The strongest of his luck was exhibited during the final battle with Don Armage, where he was able to resist being possessed by the shogun and survive being thrown into space.
- Immeasurable Dream: His dream of freeing the universe from Jark Matter's domination is so vast that the dream-eating Yumepakkun died trying to consume it.

- Space scooter: Lucky took off in a one-man space vehicle from Luth, before a meteor shower in the Shishi System sent him into the path of the Kyurangers on Crotus. The machine was repaired when he boarded the Orion, though it would soon malfunction yet again.

Legend Sentai Devices
Behind the Scenes
- Of the 88 modern constellations, he represents Leo, "The Lion" (As Shishi Red) and Orion, "The Hunter" (As Shishi Red Orion).
- His finisher "Regulus Impact" refers to the star Regulus, the brightest of the Leo constellation.
- Lucky is portrayed by Takumi Kizu. As Shishi Red, his suit actor is Masashi Takada (高田将司 Takada Masashi) , whose previous role was Zyuoh The World and Cube Gorilla in Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger.
- Shishi Red's Pegasus Mode pays homage to Pegasus Seiya, the main character from the manga/anime series Saint Seiya, that also has a constellation motif. The Pegasus crest on his armor is similar in color and design to the one seen in the Pegasus cloth's box.
- Shishi Red is the first Red Ranger to have a lion-motif since GaoRed.
- Lucky is also the first Post Anniversary Sentai Red to have a Lion motif. Incidentally, GaoRed comes from an Anniversary Sentai.
- Lucky is the second Kyuranger after Balance to use more than one of the Kyu The Weapon's modes. The only difference between the two is that Lucky didn't have a problem with the mode he used whereas Balance complained about the weight of the Kyu Sword.
- Lucky's preferred Kyu The Weapon mode (Kyu Sword) is the only one out of its nine modes to use all of the attachable pieces.
- Lucky's catchphrase "Alright, Lucky!" and his pre-battle saying "Let's test your luck!" might be a reference to Horoscopes as they use constellations to tell a person the kind of fortune they will have.
- His backstory of being transported from his own planet is somehow similar to Kal-El/Superman.
- Taiyou Shishi Red empowering Tenbin Gold and Hebitsukai Silver references the reflective properties of metals like gold and silver. On the other hand, Shishi Red Moon empowering Ookami Blue seems to reference the mythology of the werewolf and its relation to the full moon.
- Shishi Red Orion's powers seem similar to the powers of Fourze's Cosmic States, Gaim's Kiwami Arms, Drive's Type Tridoron, and Ghost's Grateful Damashii as they all combine the powers of the collectibles they or their allies use.
- Of the above, Shishi Red Orion is most similar to Gaim Kiwami Arms in that both forms stem from legendary origins (Lucky's bloodline originating from Orion and the Kiwami Lockseed coming from a seed of the Golden Fruit), and that they are able to summon the weapons used by their allies as well.
- Shishi Red Orion combining the powers of the 12 Kyurangers is also similar to J.A.K.Q.'s Big One, a white-colored hero who was also able to use the powers of his teammates.
- Using the powers and weapons of the 12 Kyurangers is also similar to the Gokaigers' Gokai Silver Gold Mode. The key difference is that Gokai Silver uses the manifestations of the 15 Sixth Rangers before him as a finishing attack on an opponent, while Shishi Red Orion can use the Kyurangers' weapons at any time during battle.
- Lucky's Shishi Red Orion form makes him the first Sentai Ranger since the Core Rangers of Mahou Sentai Magiranger to wear a cape.
- Lucky is also the first Sentai Ranger with an enhanced form that possesses a cape.
- He is the first Super Sentai warrior with an enhanced form that is a different color from their default.
- Shishi Red Orion form is a reference between Leo Mycenae and Orion Eden in the Saint Seiya Omega series.
- Despite being called Shishi “Red” Orion, Lucky’s enhanced form is actually predominantly white with red accents rather than the other way around.
- Due to his father the real King Aslan being revealed to be alive and being turned "evil" by a main antagonist, Lucky shares some similarities with Luke Skywalker from the Star Wars franchise.
- Lucky shares similarities with Andros, the Red Space Ranger from Power Rangers in Space. Both are trying to save a brainwashed family member (Aslan and Astronema/Karone respectively) from the control of the main villains (Don Armage and Dark Specter respectively).
- In Space and Kyuranger also involve a vital ally being in cryiogenic suspension.
- Coincidently both series are space themed. However, In Space's Sentai counterpart - Denji Sentai Megaranger - has digital technology/cyberspace motif, rather than a space motif.
- Lucky also shares similarities with Nick Russell/Bowen from Power Rangers Mystic Force in terms of living as normal person until finding out that he has extraordinary origins and that his father is brainwashed as the villains' servant.
