"Belle Tiger! GaoWhite!"
―GaoWhite's roll call[src]

Sae Taiga (タイ さえ Taiga Sae) is GaoWhite (ガオホワイト Gao Howaito) of the Gaorangers. She is a 17-year-old (27 as for the Great Legend War in Gokaiger) martial arts student who was chosen as the second Gaoranger around the same time as Kai.



Sae is incredibly level-headed. Her father runs a dojo in Kagoshima and taught her various combat techniques. Against his will, she moved to Tokyo and enrolled in a special martial arts institution to further improve her skills. She worries about the rest of the team, though she is sometimes belittled by them (except for Kakeru) since she is the only female on the team.

She yearns for a prince that rides on a white horse and carries a bouquet of roses. Unlike most Super Sentai heroines, she had never changed her clothing in the blink of an eye until she met up with Miku Imamura (MegaPink). She is in charge of forming the left arm for the Gaorangers' mecha formations. After the final battle, she continued her martial arts training although she initially planned to travel across Japan with Tsukumaro.

Years later, Sae 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. AkaRenger 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 GaoWhite powers are later used by Ahim de Famille via the Ranger Keys. Sae is one of several rangers (portrayed by a stand-in) who could be seen in the background when the Goseigers awoke after sacrificing their powers.

Ranger Key

GaoWhite Ranger Key

The GaoWhite Ranger Key.

The GaoWhite Ranger Key (ガオホワイトレンジャーキー Gao Howaito Renjā Kī) is Sae Taiga'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 GaoWhite Ranger Key was mainly used by Ahim de Famille (Gokai Pink), who used it to fight as GaoWhite. It was also used by Luka Millfy (Gokai Yellow) on two occasions.

The Gaoranger 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. Splitting up, the puppet GaoWhite was defeated as part of a group of surviving Pink and White warrior keys by Gokai Pink and Super Gosei Pink. Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. Sae received her key and became GaoWhite once more. Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates

Behind the scenes


Sae Taiga is portrayed by Mio Takeuchi (竹内 実生 Takeuchi Mio). As GaoWhite, she had several suit actors, Motokuni Nakagawa (中川 素州 Nakagawa Motokuni), Naoko Kamio (神尾 直子 Kamio Naoko), and Yuichi Hachisuka (蜂須賀 祐一 Hachisuka Yūichi).


  • Her name, Sae Taiga (タイ さえ Taiga Sae), means "Large River Skillfullness".
    • However this is based on the fact that Taiga (タイ Taiga) is very similar to the word Tiger (タイガー Taigā). This is also referring to the Taiga (タイガ Taiga) biome, where most of Siberian Tigers (some are white ones) live, since GaoWhite is a white tiger-themed ranger.
    • One of the radicals of her first name, Sae (さえ Sae) comes from the kanji for Fang (さえ Kiba) found in the ateji of Gaoranger (レンジャー Gaorenjā). These namings are found in other Gaorangers' names, as well as some other Sentai teams.
      • GaoWhite is by the way the second white fanged tiger-themed ranger, after KibaRanger.
