"HUH! HUH! HUH!"
―The Rinshi's only sounds when moving.[src]

Rinshi were members of the Dai Shi Clan in Power Rangers: Jungle Fury and acted as Dai Shi's foot soldiers.

History

Jarrod/Dai Shi summoning Rinshi.

Rinshi were JiangShi-like warriors who traveled by hopping forward or backward. They appeared to lack the ability to speak beyond going "HUH! HUH! HUH!" when hopping. On occasion they wield staffs for battle that harnessed and released energy. They were also infiltrators, as in several episodes they appear as regular people (such as thieves or technicians) to trap the Power Rangers.

Certain Rinshi were selected and upgraded to harness powers of specific beast arts. Camille attached animal totems to Rinshis to upgrade them. These Rinshis gained the power and fighting styles of the specific animal totems as well as the ability to speak and behave in a more humanoid fashion. Upon gaining a type of power-up usually from the fear and despair of the people around them, they shed their identical upgraded Rinshi forms and take on a monster-like appearance. Dai Shi could randomly select one or more Rinshi and place the head of a special statuette totem on them. This converted simple Rinshi to Rinshi Beasts, warriors with the fighting style and abilities of an animal.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Fear Absorption: Even without turning into their monster forms, Rinshi Beasts could absorb fear to increase their power as mentioned by Mantor when he deployed alongside some Rinshi.
  • Monster Transformation: The Rinshi Beasts could transform into their monster forms at will, causing their Rinshi forms to shatter.
    • Rinshi Transformation: Despite their Rinshi forms shattering upon assuming their monster forms, Rinshi Beasts could change back to their Rinshi form at will.
  • Enlargement: Rinshi Beasts were able to grow at will after collecting enough fear.

Abilities

  • Strength: While their strength was not shown often outside of their monster forms, they were presumably stronger than the typical Rinshi.
  • Speech: Unlike regular Rinshi, the Rinshi Beasts could speak.
  • Martial Arts Experts: Mantor, the Five Fingers of Poison, and Slickagon were all able to defeat the Power Rangers with their bare hands.

Weaknesses

Notes

  • The Rinshi, as the Rinshi Beasts, were the only foot soldiers to act as Monsters of the Week.
    • While previous Monsters such as Volkan were foot soldiers to begin with, the Rinshi were the only foot soldiers to serve as monsters on a regular basis.
