"Mythical Summoning! Won Tiger!"
―KibaRanger[src]

Mythical Chi Beast Won Tiger (気伝獣ウォンタイガー Kidenjū Won Taigā, King Tiger) is the personal Chi Beast of KibaRanger, created in episode 22 by the combined powers of Kaku and the five core Dairangers. It can serve as a mount for RyuseiOh when the latter is in warrior mode and can attack with a blast of sound called Great Roar. Its suit actor was Jiro Okamoto.

History

Due to the detrimental effects of the Gorma Tribe's Yoryuku, the Great Cosmos deemed it necessary to create a sixth Mythical Chi Beast. To do so required the Dairangers to journey to a distant land where the Great Cosmos planned to birth it so they could use their power to bring it into being. Unfortunately, Shadam learned of the event and sought to prevent it by capturing and executing Ryo. With the help of Kou, the other Dairangers were able to rescue Ryo and make it to the location of Won Tiger's birth in time to bring it into being, whereupon Kou claimed him as his personal Chi Beast.

Mythical Chi Warrior Won Tiger

"Won Tiger, Warrior Change!" Like RyuseiOh, Won Tiger can assume a humanoid form called Mythical Chi Warrior Won Tiger (気伝武人 ウォンタイガー Kiden Bujin Won Taigā), called "Warrior Mode" for short, with the command of "Warrior Change." In Warrior Mode, Won Tiger is armed with the Golden Sword (黄金剣 Ōgonken) formed from its tail and the 7 Legendary Chi Treasure Pearls in its cockpit which correlate to both the seven days of the week and the Chinese elements. These jewels, when used, make Won Tiger use powers themed after them;

Moon [月, Getsu] (Monday)
Fire [火, Hi] (Tuesday): Makes Won Tiger shoot fireballs from its chest.
Water [水, Mizu] (Wednesday)
Wood [木, Ki] (Thursday)
Metal [金, Kin] (Friday)
Earth [土, Tsuchi] (Saturday)
Sun [日, Hi] (Sunday)

The formation's ultimate attack was the Flame Pearl where Kibaranger would take one of the Treasure Pearls from behind him and insert it into a round slot. The kanji for “fire” would then appear in the tiger mouth and White would order it to fire a massive stream of fireballs that would slam into Gorma Minions with amazing force.

"New Star Combination! Kiba DaiOh!"
―Transformation command.[src]

New Star Combination Kiba DaiOh (新星合体牙大王 Shinsei Gattai Kiba Daiō, "Fanged Great King") is the combination of Won Tiger and Heavenly Chi Palace. First introduced in Episode 22, Won Tiger is armed with a bladed buckler on its right arm formed from Star-Houou.

Its attacks include Great Chi Power Punch (大気力パンチ Dai Ki-Ryoku Panchi) (a powerful punch to the monster's face capable of sending them flying) and the Flying Sword - Smash to Atoms (飛翔剣・木端微塵 Hishō Ken - Koppamijin) finisher. In the latter, Star-Houou is released from Kiba DaiOh's arm and then charged with a blast of energy from the tiger head on Kiba DaiOh's chest, allowing Star-Houou to smash through opponents like a missile.

Notes

  • The name "Won Tiger" comes from the kanji characters for "Kiba Daioh" arranged backward. Won is the Chinese reading for "king" (王), while Tai and Ga (which form the katakana romanization of the plain English "Tiger") are alternate readings for the kanji for "big/great" (大) and "fang" (牙) respectively.[1]
  • Despite being Kiba Ranger's personal mecha, Won Tiger's cockpit features four additional terminals for four other Dairangers - this is unusual as an entirely separate cockpit is used for Kiba Daioh, which is made of all Five mecha.
  • Just like Guardian Beast Dragon Caesar from Zyuranger, Mythical Ch'i Beast Won Tiger premiered in episode twenty-one from its respected series, four episodes after their Ranger owners premiered in episode seventeen. They also both were adapted to zords belonging to the same Power Ranger, with different powers.
    • They are also similar because they can combine with some of the Core Rangers' Mecha to form a new Robo - the only difference between Dragon Caesar and Won Tiger in this case is that Dragon Caesar can combine with some of the core Rangers' mecha to form two new combinations: Gouzyujin with Guardian Beasts ZyuMammoth, Triceratops and Saber Tiger and Bast Emperor Combination Zyutei Daizyujin with Daizyujin, while Won Tiger can combine with some of the core Mythical Chi Beasts to form just one new combination: Kiba DaiOh.
