The Ninja Wolf Beasts Fangol (忍狼獣ファングール Ninrōjū Fangūru) are a trio of demonic space wolves summoned by Satarakura. The brown Fangol is Beginning (序 Jo), the silver Fangol is Break (破 Ha), and the black Fangol is Rapid (急 Kyū).
The last of the wolf-like demons, the Fangol are from the Planet Helzer in the Beast Nebula which was decimated by Jakanja long ago. The Fangol were too vicious to die out with rest of their race and were found by Satarakura who uses a special whistle to control them. He makes them his personal pets before setting them loose on the day of the second meteor shower via Tau Zant's plan to evoke the Evil Force. The Fangol use their special abilities to eat the shadows of their victims, turning them into werewolves until the Fangol themselves are killed. The trio overpowers the Hurricanegers and Shurikenger until the Gouraigers arrive, forcing the wolves to retreat back to the city to claim more victims. Though they overpowered the ninja, they managed to destroy the Fangol.
Giant Beast Fangerus
However, at Satokura's call, the Fangol reformed and merged into the 3-faced Giant Beast Fangerus (巨獣ファンゲロス Kyojū Fangerosu, 32-33) and the victims of the Fangol start to turn other people into werewolves to complete the ideal setting for the Evil Force is coming. Though the Giant Beast Fangerus overpowered Gourai Senpujin, it splits back into the three Fangol when Satarakura's whistle is broken. Once Satarakura fixes the whistle, the Fangol merged back into Fangol and resume attacking the city and fighting the Hurricanegers and Gouraigers, who were now in their Shinobi Machines as humans. This is until Revolver Mammoth arrives, with the wolves being the first to be killed by Revolver Gourai Senpuujin.
