"Dare ja, dare ja?! Da~re, dare ja?! Dare ja, dare ja?! Da~re, dare ja?! Dinomaru!"
―Summoning announcement[src]

OtomoNin Dinomaru (オトモ忍ダイノマル Otomo Nin Dainomaru, lit. "Companion Ninja Dino Circle") is an orange auxiliary OtomoNin modeled after a Tyrannosaurus.

Dinomaru was summoned during the Ninningers' and ToQgers' battle against the Dark Doctor Mavro as part of an assembly of the six humanoid OtomoNin brought forth before Ha-Oh ToQ Dai-Oh to perform the OtomoNin Connection Splendid Crash finisher alongside the six ToQgers' personal Ressha, with Dinomaru standing on top of Blue Ressha as AoNinger and ToQ 2gou stood on top of it to provide their respective slash attacks, which finally destroyed the Cho Cho Kuliner Robo.

Dinomaru was summoned by the Ninnin Girls in the Karakuri Battle which decided the outcome of their tournament against the Ninnin Boys, combining with Shurikenjin piloted by NinninWhite, NinninGreen, and NinninRed alongside Gekiatsu Dai-Oh piloted by NinninPink against the Ninnin Boys' Lion Ha-Oh and Bison King. After the Ninnin Boys were beaten back by the Ninnin Girls thanks to a distraction unknowingly provided by the Kibaoni Army Corps, it was Shurikenjin Dino's Shurikenjin Dinomic Summer which sent the Ninnin Boys down and awarded victory to the Ninnin Girls.

Shurikenjin Dino

"Ha! Ha! Wassho, Washo-Washo, Di~no Wasshoi! Ha! Ha! Wassho, Washo-Washo, Di~no Wasshoi! Shurikenjin Dino! (Jurassic fanfare)"
―Shurikenjin Dino combination[src]

Shurikenjin Dino (シュリケンジンダイノ Shurikenjin Daino) is an alternate form of Shurikenjin formed when Dinomaru takes over Shinobimaru's place with the OtomoNin placed into the formation's right hand, while the giant OtomoNin Shuriken: Dino is placed on the head in place of the Shinobimaru one. This is performed when AkaNinger spins his OtomoNin Shuriken: Dino in the Ninja Ichibantou and the "Shuriken Dino Combination" is announced.

Shurikenjin Dino is armed with the Dino Drill (ダイノドリル Daino Doriru) and the Dino Hammer (ダイノハンマー Daino Hanmā).

Shurikenjin Dino's finisher is Shurikenjin Dinomic Summer (シュリケンジン・ダイノミックサマー Shurikenjin Dainomikku Samā).

Nin Shuriken

Otomonin EX

OtomoNin Shuriken: Dino


  • Dinomaru is a heavily remolded Paonmaru with altered front legs (Paonmaru's back legs), altered back legs (Paonmaru's front legs/humanoid legs) with extended heel spurs, a new humanoid head, a new animal head piece, and a large drill tail weapon.[1]
  • Like all the mechas in Ninninger, Dinomaru shares features with past mecha.
    • Dinomaru can be comparable to the Kyoryu Origami from Samurai Sentai Shinkenger.
      • While not based on the same dinosaur, both function as a special sword weapon rather than the mech's default sword.
      • Both were used in specials.
    • The facial plate of Shurikenjin Dino resembles that of the helmet of AbaRed.
    • The tail used as a drill/sword comes in mind Dragon Caesar.
  • Dinomaru is the only OtomoNin not who was not adapted in Power Rangers Ninja Steel, for reasons unknown.
