"Stealth Wind Combination! Senpuujin is here!"
―Combination command[src]

Karakuri Giant Senpuujin (絡繰巨漢旋風神 Karakuri Kyokan Senpūjin, Trick Giant Whirlwind God) is the mecha of the Hurricanegers in Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger.

Overview

It is formed by the command "Ninpu Combine" (忍風合体 Ninpū Gattai). It was destroyed in the final episode in a kamikaze attack from the Evil Will that had taken the form of the Jakanja leader Boss Tau Zant, only to be rebuilt by Fourth Spear, Wendinu and First Spear, Furabiijo in the Abaranger vs. Hurricaneger special. Unfortunately, it was beaten by Bakuryuu Gattai KillerOh, separating into its three components.

Senpuujin's attacks with the Dolphin Tornado (ドルフィントルネード Dorufin Torunēdo) energy wave from its right arm and the Mane Hurricane (タテガミハリケーン Tategami Harikēn) blizzard blast from its left shoulder, both of which are activated by inserting Hurrican Lion's tail as a ripcord.  It can also fire Hurricane Dolphin's laser canons as a close range attack. By inserting Shinobi medals into slots on their consoles, the Hurricangers can summon Karakuri Balls from the chamber within Senpuujin's chest which open to deploy any of several weapons it can use to finish off giant opponents.

Although it's access to Karakuri Balls gives it a large variety of finishing moves, the most commonly used one is the Copy Illusion Slash where it summons the Sword Slasher  and then splits into three copies of itself, one for each Hurricanegers. They would then charge up the blade tip with yellow energy and slash downwards, reducing the enemy into energy which would then disapperate (with the exception of Magnet Ninja Jishakkumo  who fell over backwards and exploded).

History

Later history

Gokaiger

When GokaiOh and Gosei Great faced the Black Cross Colossus, the mecha of the first 33 Super Sentai, including Senpuujin which possibly manifested from a toy version like DaiDenzin and the Variblune, appeared to back them up. When the Black Cross Colossus summoned several giant villains to oppose them, Senpuujin fought alongside ShinkenOh and Muteki Shogun to destroy Buredoran of Chimatsuri. After all the giant villains were destroyed, all 35 mecha weakened Black Cross Colossus with a combined attack before GokaiOh combined with the Variblune to become Goren GokaiOh which destroyed the Black Cross Colossus with the Gokai Hurricane: Cassiopeia finisher. With the battle won, the 33 past Super Sentai mecha vanished. Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle

Shinobi Machines

Hurricane Hawk

Blue Glass Arrow See also: Hawk Zord

Hurricane Hawk (ハリケンホーク Hariken Hōku): HurricaneRed's personal mecha in the form of a giant robotic red hawk with ninja fire magic. When Oboro launches it from the hangar, it removes the cloak from when it is posing as a commercial jet. Its attack is the Karakuri Ninpou: Fire Hawk (カラクリ忍法・火炎鷹 Karakuri Ninpō: Kaen Daka), a trail of gas from its wings which it ignites to perform a flaming divebomb attack. Forms the head of Karakuri Giant Senpuujin.


Hurricane Leon

Blue Glass Arrow See also: Lion Zord

Hurricane Leon (ハリケンレオン Hariken Reon): HurricaneYellow's personal mecha in the form of a giant robotic yellow lion with ninja earth magic. When Oboro launches it from the hangar, it removes the cloak from when it is posing as an amusement park attraction which includes a roller coaster and a ferris wheel. Its attack is the Karakuri Ninpou: Lion Dance (カラクリ忍法・連獅子 Karakuri Ninpō: Ren Jishi) , a whirlwind blast from its rotating mane that immobilizes the opponent before Hurricane Lion uses its rear thrusters to launch itself down the wind tunnel to tackle them. Forms the legs, torso, and left arm of Karakuri Giant Senpuujin (the latter also forming Karakuri Giant Gourai Senpuujin's chest).


Hurricane Dolphin

Blue Glass Arrow See also: Dolphin Zord

Hurricane Dolphin (ハリケンドルフィン Hariken Dorufin): HurricaneBlue's personal mecha in the form of a giant robotic blue dolphin with ninja water magic. When Oboro launches it from the hangar, it removes the cloak from when it is posing as a luxury yacht liner. Its attacks are the Karakuri Ninpou: Big Harbor Wave (カラクリ忍法・大津波 Karakuri Ninpō: Ōtsunami), a hologram of a tsunami used to distract and intimidate opponents, and the Dolphin Attack (ドルフィンアタック Dorufin Atakku) where it bounces an opponent on its snout before slapping them away with its tail. It also is armed with four beam guns around its head. Forms the right arm of Karakuri Giant Senpuujin, Karakuri Giant Gourai Senpuujin's right shoulder cannon, and switchs with Karakuri Giant Tenkuujin to form Tenkuu Senpuujin. Hurricane Dolphin is the only Shinobi Machine left out of the Karakuri Giant Tenrai Senpuujin formation.


Senpuujin Hurrier

"Senpuujin, Hurry up!"
―Transformation Command[src]

With the command "Senpuujin, hurry up!", Senpuujin is able to change into a slimmer and faster form called Senpuujin Hurrier (旋風神ハリアー Senpūjin Hariā) that lasts for 60 seconds before the Hurricanegers have to revert it back to avoid internal damage. While in this form, Senpuujin Hurrier has the two large Double Hurrier Swords (ダブルハリアーソード Daburu Hariā Sōdo) as weapons.

Senpuujin Hurrier's finisher attack is the Wheel Crash where it would produce it's Hurrier Swords and then fly upwards using jet thrusters in it's feet. It would generate a large ramp from said feet and then grow the wrist blades, making them fuse together into a wheel. It would then join onto the platform, going down the ramp at high speed which would charge it up with yellow energy before slamming into and ploughing through the monster. Oddly, in the episode "The Chief and the Bath" , it did more than that and caught up Poison Flower Ninja Hanasakkadoushi in it's sphere and sent him flying.

Karakuri Balls

The Karakuri Balls that Senpuujin uses are:

  • 01: Sword Slasher
  • 02: Goat Crusher
  • 03: Tortoise Hammer
  • 05: Gatling Leo
  • 06: Squid Attacker
  • 07: FūraiHead
  • 09: Karakuri Mantle
  • 13: Karakuri Stamp
  • 14: Pitatto Hitode
  • 16: TriKanmuri

The Hurricangers also used both of the Legendary Karakuri Balls on two separate occasions. The first time is where they used the Raging Arrow, where it also caused them to lose control of Senpuujin which led Sandaru to realize the importance to obtaining the Grieving Bow Medal and it also caused for Gozen to reveal herself. The second time is they are able to use them to nullify the wormhole to the Evil Force that Tau Zanto created.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

It is portrayed by Hirofumi Fukuzawa (福沢博文, Fukuzawa Hirofumi), who also porrtrayed HurricaneRed.

Notes

  • Unlike his Power Rangers Counterpart, this mecha teamed with the Gaoranger Mecha & the Abaranger Mecha.
  • Senpuujin is one of the most unique Sentai Robo's as it can assume a lighter armored form through form-shifting rather than physical mechanical transformation.
  • Senpuujin's motif has much resemblance to Choujuu Gattai Liverobo, as both mechas consists of animal-like mechas, made up of 3 parts, and the similar animals (Hurricane Hawk = Jet Falcon, Hurricane Lion = Land Lion, Hurricane Dolphin = Aqua Dolphin).
