Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Etymology

Naiyo Kapaja's name is an anagram of "I'm not a kappa" (カッパじゃないよ Kappa ja nai yo), which is ironic since her design also incorporates elements of a kappa.

Notes

concept art

  • Animal Theme: Japanese River Otter.
  • Possible Prehistorical Basis: Siamogale melilutraMegalenhydris
    • Her design also incorporates elements of a kappa and a kunoichi (a female ninja or practitioner of ninjutsu).
  • Naiyo Kapaja is the first and only standard female Gangler Monster to appear on the show as well as the first female Monster of the Week to appear in a Super Sentai series since Shuriken Sentai Ninninger.
  • Naiyo is the first Gangler monster without a human form to be destroyed by LupinKaiser.
    • She is also the first Female Gangler Monster to be destoyed by one of the Kaiser Robo Formations.
  • She is the first Gangler Monster who doesn't intend on taking over Dogranio's place. Instead, she intends on taking Goche's place, serving directly under him.
  • Naiyo is the first Sentai Monster since Trinoid 18: Rakopiman to have an otter theme.
  • Her last words, "But I'm still only 16x10..." are a reference to the 80's song "Sentimental Journey" by pop idol Iyo Matsumoto. It is taken from the lyric "I'm still only 16," implying that Naiyo was 160 years old at her death.
