"The Fierce Full Moon! MidoNinger! (たぎ十六夜いざよい!ミドニンジャー! Tagiru izayoi! Mido Ninjā!)"
―MidoNinger's roll call (as Kyuemon).[src]

Luna Kokonoe (九重 ルナ Kokonoe Runa) is NinninGreen (ニンニングリーン Ninnin Gurīn) of the Ninnin Girls, who later reveals herself to be possessed by Kyuemon Shingetsu Kibaoni, as MidoNinger (ミドニンジャー Mido Ninjā, Green Ninja), of the Ninningers.

Character History

With the blank green Nin Shuriken, now housed in the Igasaki home, it is later used by Sakurako Igasaki to recruit a new "Ninnin Girl" to fight alongside Kasumi Momochi and Fuuka Igasaki against the "Ninnin Boys" for the right to be the Igasaki ninja team.

Sakurako gives the Nin Shuriken given to Luna, and she joins them just before the competition starts. Luna shows an admiration for Kinji Takigawa. Her attention causes him to feel as if there is something eerily familiar about her. With all the members of the Ninnin Boys and Ninnin Girls paired up, Luna, as NinninGreen battles Kinji as StarNinger. However, because of the machinations of the Yokais, Luna gets distracted and is soundly beaten by StarNinger.

The Ninnin Girls still win the battle and become the ultimate Ninja team. However, Ariake no Kata arrives to battle them with Juza Yumihari, a Yokai Samurai general. Juza Yumihari soundly defeats the girls and sideswipes Luna just before absolutely thrashing Kasumi and Fuuka, in full view of their mother, Sakurako. Believing them to be dead, Sakurako breaks down in tears, giving Ariake no Kata enough grief to power the resurrection of her son Mangetsu Kibaoni.

Luna reappears just in time, with the Ninningers together, with Fuuka and Kasumi surviving. She saves them from one of Mangetsu's deadly attacks and reveals herself to be Kyuemon Shingetsu Kibaoni, whose spirit was possessing Luna. Now, as MidoNinger, she battles with the Ninningers to rid the world of the Kibaoni Family. When they succeed, Luna/Kyuemon congratulates the Ninningers and departs from Luna's body, disappearing into the ether.

When Kasumi leaves the NinninGirls, Nagi suggests that he act as manager for Fuuka and Luna as a new ninja idol duo. This suggests that Luna was allowed to keep the Midoninger shuriken and the title of Midoninger/NinninGreen even after Kyuemon abandoned her body.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Come Back!

Personality

As Luna, she is very cutesy and has a small chirpy voice. She is eager to assist the NinninGirls in their victory. She also appears to idolize StarNinger among the Ninnin Boys. Her 'girly' demeanor doesn't hamper her in battle, as she is fully committed to her role as a NinninGirl.

As possessed by Kyuemon, she is very sure of herself and has a deep, almost boyish voice- Kyuemon's voice. She exhibits superior battle acumen, just like Kyuemon. Her attention to StarNinger is given context, as they had a past together, both being Igasaki family outsiders who often clashed one-on-one for various reasons.

Powers and Abilities

Ninjutsu Expertise
Being possessed by Kyuemon, a trained ninja for many years, she is skilled in ninjutsu and Shuriken Ninpo.
Enhanced Reflexes
Since Kyuemon is a trained ninja, Luna's body reflexes also maximized.
Shuriken Ninja Art (シュリケン忍法 Shuriken Ninpō)
Thanks to her Nintality learned by Kyuemon developed by Yoshitaka Igasaki, Luna can perform a wide variety of abilities through ninja techniques in addition to those accessed using the Ninninger arsenal.
Aerokinesis
Kyuemon can unleash a powerful gust of wind by simply outstretching a hand to the target.
Thunder Summoning Technique (雷招来の術 Ikazuchi Shōrai no Jutsu)
One of Kyuemon's attacks- Luna can generate a lightning bolt from her hands.
Pyrokinesis
Luna can put out or generate fires with the wave of a hand.
Fire Fox Technique
Luna can create a small stream of fire that detonates into a violent explosion upon reaching its target.
Inferno Cross Technique
Luna focuses her ninpo energy into a field of purple flaming cross projectiles that surround the target in a dome-like formation and then bombards them with the projectiles.

Transformation and Roll Call

Ranger Key

MidoNinger Ranger Key

The MidoNinger Ranger Key (ミドニンジャーレンジャーキー Mido Ninjā Renjā Kī) is a Ranger Key released as part of the Ranger Key Set: 2000th Edition. It is unknown if it will appear in a future crossover. Of course as with all Ranger Keys, should it exist, it would be able to transform one, i.e. one of the Gokaigers, into MidoNinger.

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

MidoNinger is portrayed by Megumi Han who previously voiced Kyuemon Shingetsu Kibaoni in the series.[1] Her suit actor as MidoNinger is Yuichi Hachisuka who is also Kyuemon's suit actor.

  • Kyuemon's human form used a ninja uniform with green stripes. Shortly before his death, Kyuemon also received a green Nin Shuriken bearing the Igasaki Clan crest from Yoshitaka in the finale, with Takaharu voicing his hope that Kyuemon returns to use it one day. He does, as Luna.


Notes

Shurikenger as "MidoNinger".

  • "MidoNinger" was previously used by Nagi to describe Shurikenger in Shinobi 43, accompanied by a spoof version of the Ninningers' roll call sequence featuring Shurikenger as MidoNinger. This is a reference to Shurikenger's visor modeled after a shuriken, similar to the Ninningers' visors.
    • Luna’s NinninGirls introduction as “the Idol of Idols” is similar to Shurikenger’s self-introduction as the “ninja of ninja”.
  • Her helmet is a repainted AkaNinger helmet. The original intended green ninja (Kyuemon) is a rival to the red ninja.
  • Luna's name refers to the moon or crescent, which is also what Kyuemon's false surname "Izayoi" is referring to ("16th night").
