Satarakura Jr. (サタラクラJr. Satarakura Junia) is the son of Sixth Spear, Satarakura.
Created through unknown methods prior to Satarakura's death, Satarakura Jr, alongside with his comrade, Sandaaru Jr., enlist in the Space Empire Zangyack as Action Commanders. They are sent to Earth by Warz Gill with a scheme to turn humans into chestnuts by scaring them to power their missile that will turn the entirety of humanity into chestnuts. The kidnappings are swift; a man via his truck radio, a boy via his bedroom drawer an entire office of people via thier computers and a photocopier and a man via his hot dog cart and an entire plaza through unknown means. It is at this point however that he encounters Captain Marvelous, Joe and Luka who stumble across him whilst eating ice cream. They are evenly matched until they use thier Gokai Sabers to overwhelm him although Sandaaru Jr. then intervenes. Both of them battle the three Gokaigers who use the powers of Livemen and the Abarangers but the ninja duo are able to defeat even the Dino Bomber's Dino Dynamite. As the rest of the Gokaiger crew arrive, the ninjas take their leave due to being heavily outnumbered. Later, they build thier rocket but are tracked by Gai who uses the Bouken Silver Ranger Key so the Gokaigers get the jump on the space ninja duo and save the chestnuts. Although the Gokaigers then fire the Gokai Gun and Gokai Spear Final Waves, the space ninjas change positions with Ahim and Don which allows Satarakura Jr. to kidnap the Gokaigers and send Marvelous, Luka and Joe to a never-ending sub-space. Being a coward, Satarakura then chickens out and leaves Sandaaru Jr. to finish off the remaining Gokaigers as some Genin Magerappa arrive.
Satarakura Jr. enters the subspace where the three trapped Gokaigers are and forces them to play a gameshow where losing results in death. He tries to trick them and win the game with trick questions and misleading footage such as Akarenger being him in disguise. However, the Hurricanegers temporarily re-power themselves with their Ranger Keys and enter the sub-space and attack him so he threatens the people chestnuts with a bomb. Thier hesitation allows him to capture them but but he is tricked into a quiz that will give him all of the Rangers Keys if he guesses correctly. He gets all three questions correct but this allows the Hurricanegers to escape the chains, retrieve the chestnuts and detonate the bomb with enough force to force them all out of the sub-dimensions. Enraged, Satarakura Jr. attacks all nine with the Gormin Sailors and Genin Magerappa. However, with the Hurricanegers and Gokaigers' teamwork, Satarakura is destroyed by the Gokai Super Ninja Art; Hurricane Scramble. He is then enlarged by Warz Gill with the Gigant Horse's cannons only to be the first killed by Hurricane GokaiOh's Gokai Thunderstorm Attack.
Like his father, Satarakura was a clown trickster-ninja with a sick sense of humor and performed evil acts for his own amusement. Befitting his personality, most of his movements were accompanied by goofy sound effects and a xylophone can be heard in the background of his scenes. He was an Owarai entertainer in personality with exaggerating amount on one-liners, puns, and jokes at his disposal as well as breaking the fourth wall twice.
