"NinjaBlue! Saizou!"
―NinjaBlue's roll call[src]

Saizou (サイゾウ Saizō) is NinjaBlue (ニンジャブルー Ninja Burū) of the Kakurangers. He is a descendant of Saizou Kirigakure

History

Kakuranger

He and Sasuke were tricked by Kappa into opening the Gate of Seals, releasing the Youkai into the human world. Sandayuu tracked them down and brought the two of them to where their ancestor's swords were placed in the Earth, where they met Tsuruhime. Upon pulling out his sword, the spirit of Saizou's ancestor appeared before him, gave him a lecture, and entrusted him with a Doron Changer, allowing Saizou to become NinjaBlue.

Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai

Years later, Saizou fought alongside not only his 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 NinjaBlue powers are later used by Joe Gibken via the Ranger Keys. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 1: The Space Pirates Appear Tvicon.png TV STORY-Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle

After the defeat of Ackdos Gill, the Gokaigers returned all the Ranger Keys to the former Sentai heroes. It is assumed Saizou and his teammates received their keys, allowing for them to utilize their powers once again. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates

Super Hero Taisen

The Kakurangers, alongside the Carrangers, Zyurangers, Dairangers and Ohrangers, emerge through a dimensional wall.

Saizou, alongside his team (bar Ninjaman), 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.

Super Sentai Strongest Battle

Saizou joined the Super Sentai Strongest Battle as a member of Water Warrior Team. It’s unknown whether he participated in any of the matches, but his team lost the competition either in the first round against the Police Team offscreen or won against them and lost in the second round against Super Strong Team offscreen.

Personality

At 22 years old (39 in Gokaiger), Saizou is a constantly chattering, easily flattered man who thinks he's a lot smarter than he really is. He is a loud worrywart, often jumping to immediate conclusions, as well as being the first to panic. Due to their similar flaws and personalities, he and Seikai are often found lazing about together. Despite his less-outstanding traits, he likes to help other people, making him popular among children. Unfortunately, his bad luck is often his greatest weakness. His way of talking is a little feminine, and he corresponds to Sha Wujing/Sha Gojō.

Ranger Key

The NinjaBlue Ranger Key.

The NinjaBlue Ranger Key (ニンジャブルーレンジャーキー Ninja Burū Renjā Kī) is Saizou's personal Ranger Key and what became of his powers after he 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 NinjaBlue Ranger Key was mainly used by Joe Gibken (Gokai Blue), who used it to fight as NinjaBlue.

The Kakuranger 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 Kakuranger keys were defeated by Gokai Green. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. Saizou received his key and became NinjaBlue once more. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates

Notes

  • Saizou is the first male Blue Ranger to have his uniform be the lighter blue typically associated with female Blue Rangers, as every other male Blue Ranger is colored in a darker shade.
  • Saizou's actor Hiroshi Tsuchida would later go on to voice Mike Corbett in the Japanese dub of Power Rangers Lost Galaxy.
