He is shown to hate beautiful things, as he thought of them as annoying, as said in the trailer. He is also seen being sickened by the sight of many beautiful things on Earth, as he almost wanted to puke when he sees in the Yodonheim's globe that Earth has so many beautiful things. He also enjoys the entertainment the Kiramagers provide, but finds Galza more than intimidating, especially since he effortlessly defeated Paleolith Basra.
Powers and Abilities
- Jamenshi Creation: By giving a Bechat one of his Jamen masks, he turns them into Jamenshi. If a Jamenshi fails to gather enough energy, he uses dark enrgy insurance, energy from a Bechat mask.
- Jamen Beasts Creation: By giving a Dark Beast one of his Jamen masks, he turns them into Jamen Beasts.
- Gauge Scepter: He wields a scepter which serves as a gauge to indicate how much dark energy gathered. Once full, Carantula can open up the Invasion gate for the Jamen Beasts.
Behind the Scenes
- Carantula is played by Yasuhiro Takato (高戸靖広 Takato Yasuhiro), who previously voiced Yamoh in Mahou Tsukai Pretty Cure! and Meemy from Mahou Sentai Magiranger.
- His name could be a portmanteau between máscara ("mask" in spanish and portuguese), cara ("face" in spanish) and tarantula.
- His face bearing no visible eyes is similar to that of Dayu Usukawa, Naria, and Akyanba.
- His role as the monster creator and a summoner of a giant creature modeled after the monster of the week is similar to Scrozzle from Power Rangers Beast Morphers, which was airing in the United States at the same time. Coincidentally, the Jamenshi and the Jamen Beasts had the theme of objects, similar to the Robotrons and the Gigadrones.
