"Speed Star! Washi Pink!"
―Washi Pink's roll call[src]

Raptor 283 (ラプター283 Raputā Ni-Hachi-San), or just simply Raptor, is a Type 283 (タイプ283 Taipu Ni-Hachi-San) general purpose android and the initial commander of the Orion, who later becomes Washi Pink (ワシピンク Washi Pinku, Eagle Pink), the Pink Ranger of the Kyurangers. She's the last of the main rangers to awaken, but the eighth to join the team. After Don Armage was defeated for the final time, she chooses to stay on the Battle Orion Ship as its pilot.

Aged 25, Raptor was born on February 8th.[1]

Character History

Origin

Raptor coordinates the Kyurangers' efforts against Jark Matter from the Orion.

Raptor 283 was constructed by the Rebellion on their planet Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.2: Let's Go! Phantom Thief BN Team! in the Washi System to serve as secretary to commander Shou Ronbou and pilot of the spaceship ORION. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.4: Dreamy Android She was descended from the android designs made by Tsurugi Ohtori, also known as Houou Soldier. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.23: Become My Shield!

Kyuranger

Raptor was in command of the Orion when she sent the first three Kyurangers, Hammie, Spada and Champ, into battle in the flat planet of Crotus. Here the Kyurangers battle Jark Matter and attempt to save as many civilians as possible. They encounter a man from Luth, Lucky who makes it his goal to be one of them. Raptor 283 accepts him into the Orion to help fix his crashed space cruiser. Once there, they find Lucky has made of with a Transformation Controller Seiza Blaster and Raptor 283 sends the Kyurangers to the planet Jagjag to track him down. In the ground, both Lucky and a Jagjag resident, Garu, become Kyurangers, but soon after, Raptor 283 is ambushed in orbit from Jark Matter ships, forcing the Kyurangers to summon their Voyager machines to take the fight to space. Raptor 283 later welcomes and orients the new Kyurangers and inducts them as part of the Rebellion. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.1: The Super Stars of Space

Raptor lectures the team on Jark Matter.

Briefing the team on their mission against Jark Matter, Raptor 283 was interrupted by Lucky as he set off in the Shishi Voyager to find the next Kyuranger who he pinpointed to Zigama, sending the other Kyurangers after him. Lucky's shot ultimately bore fruit in the form of the two thieves Naga Ray and Balance who joined the team as Hebitsukai Silver and Tenbin Gold respectively, with Raptor 283 voicing doubt that Lucky's luck would last forever.

Introducing the seven Kyurangers to the Rebellion commander Shou Ronpo, Raptor sent them off to prevent the destruction of the planet Needle which was being drained of its Planet Jume by Jark Matter. Raptor was most concerned in light of the emergence of a hostile new Kyuranger, who had stung all the team bar Lucky and Champ, only to find Shou preoccupied with finding a catchphrase, eventually settling on OKyu. Taking the Futago Kyutama from the pile dropped off by Shou, Raptor dropped down to Needle and gave it to Lucky, allowing him to fight with double the power. Fortunately, the afflicted Kyurangers recovered in time for the team to assemble and destroy the Moraimarz draining the planet's Jume. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.3: The Man from the Desert Star

After the destruction of Daikaan Mozuma's Moraimarz, the crew discovered that they had lost control of the ship and that they had been sent on a direct course to the Sun, causing a sharp rise in temperature which the mechanical Raptor tolerated better than her organic shipmates. The ship and crew were ultimately saved, however, as Mozuma was destroyed by Shishi Red and Koguma Skyblue, causing his microbic extensions to dissipate and return control of the ship.

Raptor was among the crew left behind to perform repairs on the Orion following the ordeal with the Sun as a team was led by Shou to recover the Tomo Kyutama on Earth. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.11: Three Kyutama to Save The Universe

Returning from Vela in the midst of Stinger and Champ's fight with Scorpio, Raptor fought in KyurenOh to take down a Deathworm that the Karo had enlarged. Tragically, Champ was near destroyed after saving Stinger from Scorpio, and so Stinger was ordered to take his body to Rebellion HQ in hopes that he could be saved.

Raptor 283 Card.png

Seeking the Kyutama of the Tokei System, the Kyurangers came to the planet Toki and turned the 12 keys needed to unlock it within 30 minutes. Approaching key VIII, Raptor was overwhelmed to find illusions of Lucky, Spada, Tsurugi and Shou all proposing marriage to her, but ultimately rejected them to complete the mission.

Other Events

Zyuohger vs. Ninninger

Through unknown circumstances, the nine Kyurangers made a brief appearance on an Earth where Jark Matter was not present. Instead, the Kyurangers arrived to intervene against the Deathgalien before they could interfere with the Zyuohgers' fight with the Ninningers for the future of Super Sentai against Gillmarda. With Washi Pink fighting off Naria alongside Chameleon Green, the Kyurangers eventually forced the Deathgalien to retreat before taking their leave with their appearance observed by the Zyuohger ally Bud, who realized that the future was in safe hands.

Personality

Raptor's shown to be serious and short-tempered, as shown as when she hit Shou Ronpo because of him thinking about new reply words instead of Kyuranger safety. She also shown to be brave, as she delivered Futago Kyutama to Lucky while in the battlefield.

However, despite her seriousness, she tends to daydream and write in her tablet about her fighting alongside the Kyurangers. She can also be air headed at times, when no one is around. Her dream became reality, when her wish created the Washi Kyutama. She sees the Orion as her Uncle, due to an incident where both she and Spada were trapped in a magnetic storm during a warp drive test, where she believed that the ship saved them both.

It is hinted that she might have a crush on Spada.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Raptor 283/Washi Pink
M • A • O

Raptor 283 is voiced by M • A • O, also known as Mao Ichimichi (市道真央 Ichimichi Mao) who had previously played Luka Millfy/Gokai Yellow in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger and voiced Pasco in Ressha Sentai ToQger. As Washi Pink, her suit actress is Ryoko Gomi (五味涼子 Gomi Ryoko).

Notes

  • Of the 88 modern constellations, she represents Aquila, "The Eagle"
  • Her numerical designation is not random: in Goroawase, "283" can be read as either tsu-ba-sa (つ ば さ (翼)), which means wing, or ha-ya-mi (は や み (早見)), which means "quickly seen/seeing".
  • Raptor is the first non-humanoid pink ranger.
  • During the stage show, Raptor does Luka Millfy's pose as well as uttering Luka's catchphrase "Shut up, fool!" in Luka's voice. This is an allusion to the fact that both Raptor and Luka are potrayed by the same actress.
  • According to the "Uchu Sentai Kyuranger Photobook All Star Chart", Raptor's age is 25 and her birthday is February 8th, making her born one week after her voice actress.
  • Ciara Hanna, who portrayed Gia Moran in Power Rangers Super Megaforce, stated that she would gladly perform the voice for Raptor 283's Power Rangers counterpart should Kyuranger be adapted in the future. This is because Gia's Sentai counterpart in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger is Luka Millfy; Luka was portrayed by Mao Ichimichi, who also provided Raptor 283's voice in Uchu Sentai Kyuranger.
