"Partner of Justice, Ninjaman!"
―Ninjaman's roll call.[src]

"Did you just call me a blue squirt?! This makes me angry! Enter... Samuraiman!"
―Ninjaman becomes Samuraiman.[src]

Ninjaman (ニンジャマン Ninjaman) is an ally of the Kakurangers. He is the pupil of the Sanshinshou, who was imprisoned within a blue pot as punishment a millennium ago for allowing himself to be fooled by Daimaou to attack the humans.



Once released by Tsuruhime, Ninjaman becomes an ally to the Kakurangers and comes to their aid when needed. As a ninja master, Ninjaman wields a katana, and had a wide array of Ninja-Arts at his command, including enlargement to aid his mentors in their fights. He rides on a cloud called the Kintou Cloud. Whenever a Yokai calls him "Blue Squirt" or "Novice" (青二才 Ao Nisai), he gets angry enough to change into Samuraiman (サムライマン Samuraiman), who connects his weapon with its sheath to form a powerful javelin. In this state, Samuraiman creates explosive energy spheres formed from his rage in his ultimate attack, Samurai Rage Bomber. Ninjaman was only seen changing into Samuraiman when he was a giant; whether he can do it while human-sized is unknown. In the finale, after the Yokai are sealed away, NinjaMan is now with his masters and says goodbye to the Kakurangers.


30 Sentai Encyclopedia

Ninjaman, also seen transforming into Samuraiman, is acknowledged as an Extra Hero (番外ヒーロー Bangai Hīrō) in the 30 Sentai Encyclopedia Special Files entry shown at the end of Task 44 of GoGo Sentai Boukenger.


"...and Ninjaman! Even though I'm a ninja, let's make this showy!"
―Ninjaman adds himself to the Gokaigers' roll call as he fights alongside them.[src]

Ninjaman's appearance in Gokaiger

Some time later, Ninjaman caused a lot of destruction when saving a little girl from animals that had escaped from a zoo. As punishment, he was once again locked away in a jar and sequestered at the Negakure Temple by the Sanshinshou. Consequently, this left him unable to join the Kakurangers and all the other Sentai and Bangai heroes during the Great Legend War. However, prior to the war, during the Shinkenger and Goseiger's battle against Buredoran of the Chimatsuri, Metal Alice of the Agent of the Machine Onslaught Empire Matrintis ordered Zan-KT0 of the Shot to destroy the shrine, killing Ninjaman. Luckily, history was changed by the Gokaigers who had traveled back in time under the instruction of Domon of the Timerangers, saving the shrine and preventing Ninjaman's death.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 40: The Future is the PastAs he was still sealed during the Great Legend War, Ninjaman was the only veteran Sentai hero to not lose his power during the the Super Sentai's repelling of the Zangyack invasion force.

When the Gokaigers return to the shrine to search for the Kakuranger's Greater Power, they find the jar and Ninjaman is released by Ahim de Famille. He explains why he was sealed, but wonders why the Sanshinshou did not free him. Gai Ikari then reveals to him the event of the Great Legend War, getting Ninjaman to call himself an idiot for his recklessness making him unable to help his allies.

The Gokaigers decide to take him to the Gokai Galleon and fill him in on things like the Great Legend War and even their own fight with the Space Empire Zangyack and Basco ta Jolokia. They reveal to him that they are the 35th Super Sentai team and explain the Ranger Keys to him and how they have also gathered almost all of the previous Super Sentai teams Greater Powers except for five that Basco had stolen. They ultimately reveal that only the Greater Power of Kakuranger is missing and ask Ninjaman to grant it to them. However, Ninjaman refuses on the basis that his prior recklessness had caused trouble before and that he couldn't trust the Gokaigers with such an important gift although he does decide to stay with them in order to see if they are worthy or not.

After a week where the Gokaigers have done nothing, Ninjaman decides to retrain the Gokaigers, though only Gai, Ahim and Don show up. When Don and Gai start fighting due to an attack from Action Commander Evil Spirit Faith Healer Juju, and Marvelous, Joe, and Luka doing nothing; Ninjaman deems the Gokaigers unworthy of the Kakuranger's Greater Power. However, after seeing Don and Gai stop themselves from hurting a depowered Ahim, breaking Juju's spell, Ninjaman realizes that in his efforts to not be overzealous and cause unneeded destruction like before, he had forgotten the importance in trusting people. When he and the others are called to help Marvelous, Joe, and Luka fight Juju, Ninjaman sees that they had faith in Ahim, Don, and Gai to break Juju's spell and how it helped them to find Juju.

After fighting alongside the Gokaigers, at one point with them using the Kakuranger powers, Ninjaman grants them the Kakurangers' Greater Power during the mecha battle with Juju. However, to Ninjaman's surprise, he finds that he himself is the Kakurangers' Greater Power and defeats Juju alongside GokaiOh and GoZyuJin. After the battle, he summons his cloud to return to the Three God Generals but promises to return should the Gokaigers ever call on his help again. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 46: Hero Eligibility

Super Sentai Strongest Battle

Ninjaman joined the Super Sentai Strongest Battle as a member of Curveball Team, where he partnered with Shurikenger and Signalman and fought in a three-way match against Bouken Yellow, Green Sai and GaoBlack of Super Strong Team in the first round of the competition, but lost the match.


As a student of the Three God Generals, Ninjaman is a brave and skilled warrior, ready to jump into action at a moment's notice should danger appear. However, despite his years of training and years spent in exile, Ninjaman is brash, ill-tempered, naive, impatient and highly overzealous, which often lead to his downfall. He is easily tricked by both ally and foe alike, and would rush into battle without thinking, which often results in unintentional damage. Despite all this, Ninjaman is dedicated to justice, and a dependable ally in times of need.

Behind the Scenes


Ninjaman is voiced by Kazuki Yao (矢尾 一樹 Yao Kazuki). His suit actor was Hideaki Kusaka (日下 秀昭 Kusaka Hideaki).



  • In his basic form, Ninjaman's design is that of typical ninja in Japanese culture, with blue being his base color (a Japanese trope as opposed to the Western trope of all-black ninjas). He wears a rather Ranger-like helmet and on it is a stylized forehead protector or "hachigane". On his shoulders are standard ninja spaulders or "sode". On his forearms are vambraces ("kote") and on his fists gauntlets {"tekko"). He also wears stylized harem pants.


  • When he transforms into Samuraiman, his motif changes to that of a Samurai. He auto-morphs (like the Auto-Morphin Figures) changing his helmet to a Japanese warrior's helmet. His spaulders jut upwards like that of Samurai warriors, with a crest on his forehead ("wakidate"). His harem pants separate and drop to protect his knees and complete the armored warrior look, becoming greaves ("suneate").
  • His sword and scabbard are intended to combine to resemble a "naginata"/javelin.
  • The "N" on his crests in both modes references his name.

Ranger Key

The Ninjaman Ranger Key.

The Ninjaman Ranger Key (ニンジャマンレンジャーキー) is a toy-exclusive Kakuranger Ranger Key that was included in the Ranger Key Set: Complete Edition, which was released on December 2013.[1] The key was included in the set alongside the AbarePink due to fan demand, despite the fact there was never a Ninjaman Ranger Key on the show.


  • Ninjaman was the first Extra Hero to be featured prominently in his series.
  • He is the only hero besides AkaRed who was on Earth that still had his powers but did not fight in the Great Legend War.
  • Ninjaman is the first hero to be able to turn giant.
