- ―DynaPink's roll call[src]
Rei Tachibana (立花 レイ Tachibana Rei) is DynaPink (ダイナピンク Daina Pinku) of the Dynamen.
Rei is an 18 (46 as of Gokaiger) year old kind-hearted animal scientist whose goal is to create a device that allows people to communicate with animals. She is also a competent fencer, usually bringing her rapier/saber in battle. She later becomes the frequent rival of Princess Chimera of the Jashinka Empire.
Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai
DynaPink is among the Sentai warriors seen in clips when Miku Imamura (MegaPink) lectured Sae Taiga (GaoWhite) about the past female Super Sentai warriors and their shared mastery of disguise and habit of changing their clothing in the blink of an eye, something that Sae had never done before.
Years later, Tachibana fought alongside not only her own team, but every single Sentai ranger in existence, against the Empire of Zangyack when it attacked the Earth in the Great Legend War. After fighting against hundreds of Gormin and their Zgormin commanders. Kaijou noticed the fleet moving towards them, he gathered all the Rangers together and gave them the order to sacrifice their powers to wipe out the first invasion's armada. The DynaPink powers are later utilized by Ahim de Famille via the Ranger Keys.
199 Hero Great Battle
In Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle, Rei is seen fighting in the Great Legend War. Some time during the Black Cross King's return, through the Ranger Keys, she tells the Gokaigers and Goseigers that she is sure the other Super Sentai will respond to their strength, she even tells them to explode their rage for the sake of the future's dreams.
Farewell Space Pirates
After the Gokaigers defeated the Zangyack, Marvelous returned the Ranger Keys to their original owners. It is assumed Rei and her team have their powers back.

Rei, alongside her team, among the majority of the Super Sentai heroes, was caught up in the "Super Hero Taisen" incident which eventually resulted in the Super Sentai teams and Kamen Riders joining forces to defeat both Dai-Zangyack and Dai-Shocker. During the final battle, she is seen fighting Doukoku Chimatsuri with DynaRed, and a Dogormin with Super-1 and Sword Den-O.
Zyuohger vs. Ninninger
DynaPink appeared with her team among the first 38 Super Sentai whom collectively empowered Wild Tousai Shuriken King in its fight against the titanic Gillmarda, granting the Ninningers and Zyuohgers the power to perform the Zyuoh Ninnin Super Sentai Burst which destroyed Gillmarda with the combined power of all 40 Super Sentai.

The DynaPink Ranger Key (ダイナピンクレンジャーキー Daina Pinku Renjā Kī) is Rei Tachibana's personal Ranger Key and what became of her powers after she along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.
This key along with the majority of the Ranger Keys were collected by the Red Pirates and later used by the Gokaigers. The DynaPink Ranger Key was mainly used by Ahim de Famille (Gokai Pink), who used it to fight as DynaPink. It was also used by Gai Ikari (Gokai Silver) on one occasion.
- When the Gokaigers became the Dynamen while fighting Deratsueigar of the Zangyack Imperial Guard.
- When the Gokaigers became the Dynamen while fighting a Zangyack force led by Insarn and Barizorg.
- When the Gokaigers became the Dynamen in order to use the New Super Dynamite attack against Action Commander Shieldon in a vein attempt to penetrate his shield.
- Gai became DynaPink as part of an all-pink Gokai Change in the Gokaigers' fight with Makuu Prison Chief Ashrada.
The Dynaman keys, along with all the Ranger Keys of the first 33 Super Sentai, were briefly taken by the Black Cross King and turned into Ranger puppets that were fought by the Gokaigers and the Goseigers. The Dynaman keys were defeated by Gokai Red.
After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. Rei received her key and became DynaPink once more.
Behind the scenes
- Ironically, despite wanting to communicate to animals, Rei is deathly afraid of cats for unknown reasons.
- Incidentally, Rei's dream of creating an animal translator would be realised by a future Sentai Pink in the form of the Karakuri Shinobi Translator created by Kasumi Momochi in Ninninger, which allows communication with both animals and machines. As well as that, the Red of Rei's immediate successor team possesses an ability to communicate with animals due to his Bio-Particles.
- Rei shares her surname with Tobei Tachibana of the Kamen Rider Series, who had helped the first seven Kamen Riders (1 to Stronger) & Sakuya Tachibana/Kamen Rider Garren from Kamen Rider Blade.
- She is the earliest Pink Ranger and female hero to appear as a Returning Legend in Gokaiger; as well as the only heroine to appear from any Sentai of the 70s and 80s. (the next, Remi Hoshikawa, was from 1990).
- in the parody her name is Slojin
