Ryugu Tamatebacco concept

concept art

  • Animal Theme: Oarfish
  • Possible Prehistoric Basis: Agrostichthys parkeri
  • He is the first Gangler Monster to be defeated by LupinKaiser Magic.
  • Ryugu Tamatebacco's suit contains elements of Namero Bacho's suit.
  • Ryugu Tamatebacco's ability to grow humans into old age is very similar to Zakurobacuum's ability from Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger.
  • His weapon is a rebuilt and repainted version of Rabroom Jaws' weapon.
  • Ryugu Tamatebacco is the third Gangler Monster to have human form not to be shown on screen (albeit it did appear in a photograph).
  • Ryugu Tamatebacco's name may be based on the japanese word for giant oarfish (リュウグウノツカイ Ryūgūnotsukai).
  • Ryugu Tamatebacco's name may be based on Ryūgū-jō (Dragon Palace Castle) and Tamatebako (Jewel Box) from the story of Urashima Tarō.
    • His ability to raplidy age a human also draws insperation from the Urashima Tarō story (IE: after Urashima Tarō opens the Tamatebako he recived from Otohime (the princess of the undersea palace Ryūgū-jō; who warned not to open it), a cloud of white smoke arose thus turning him to a white-haired old man).
    • The "bacco" part may also be derived from "Tobacco", as a reference to smoking, as this Gangler's natural ability is his smoke attack.
  • Ryugu Tamatebacco’s safe passcode is a reference to the first three digits of Pi.
