Biography

Battle Fever

Shirou Akebono was born in Africa, living in its jungles. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 10: I Saw the Naumann Elephant

Shirou is a wild child who can talk to animals (which could possibly be because his helmet has ears). He is armed with a whip. He performs a tribal dance during the team's roll call. He eats just about anything. The smell of his cooking is not appreciated by the other team members.

Legend War

Years later, Shirou fought alongside not only his own team, but every single Sentai ranger in existence, against the Empire of Zangnack 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 Battle Kenya powers are later utilized by Don Dogoier via the Ranger Keys.

Christmas Eve

Shirou as Santa.

Shirou later worked as a Santa Claus outside a store where he encountered Luka and Gai of the Gokaigers (who were unaware of his identity thanks to the beard he had on) and refused to give Luka a present on the grounds that he only gave gifts to 'good kids', angering her. Later, after observing their battle against Bibabu and their efforts in making the local Christmas party special, Shirou agreed that the Gokaigers deserved a present and gifted them with Battle Fever's Greater Power, which the Gokaigers didn't learn of until they returned to the GokaiGalleon and therefore never knew of his presence. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 44: A Lovely Christmas Eve

Gokaiger vs. Gavan

In Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger vs. Space Sheriff Gavan: The Movie, Shirou appeared to the Gokaigers causing them to comment on his similar appearance to Space Sheriff Gavan. To make matters more confusing, Daigoro Oume (a former member of Denziman who also shared an identical appearance) arrived, however this inspired the Gokaigers to use the Battle Kenya and DenziBlue keys to get to the prison where Gavan was held by the Zangyack. Shirou appeared again at the end of the movie, where he was given his Ranger Key allowing him to transform into Battle Kenya one last time. He, Daigoro, and Retsu transform and roll call. After the transformation, Gai Ikari began hounding them for autographs.

Farewell Space Pirates

After the Gokaigers defeated the second Zangyack invasion, Marvelous returned the Ranger keys to the Super Sentai, it is assumed Shirou and his team have their powers back. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates

Super Hero Taisen

Battle Fever, alongside Sun Vulcan, J.A.K.Q., and the Denzimen, emerge through a dimensional wall.

Shirou, alongside his team, among the majority of the Super Sentai heroes of the past and present, were 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. During the final battle, he is seen pushing back Zangyack Commander Uorlian, and grabbing one of the Gormin Sailors.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen

Transformation and Roll Call

Design

Battle Kenya wears a pure-black suit including gloves and boots. He wears a yellow belt with a metal buckle and the letter "K" on it, which stands for "Kenya". A shield on his chest with a yellow field with a Maasai shield and spears in the center; the positioning of the spears, with two heads and two ends crossed together, represents the number "4". His mask is black with a yellow triangle headed downwards towards his eyes which are similar in form to the masks of Gorenger and J.A.K.Q; likewise there are two molded "ears" with green inside on both sides of the helmet. Beneath the mask is a rounded triangle in gray with a sculpted nose and mouth.

Ranger Key

The Battle Kenya Ranger Key.

The Battle Kenya Ranger Key (バトルケニアレンジャーキー Batoru Kenia Renjā Kī) is Shirou Akebono'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 Battle Kenya Ranger Key was mainly used by Don Dogoier (Gokai Green), who used it to fight as Battle Kenya.

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

When Shirou and Daigoro Oume (DenziBlue) were informed by the Gokaigers that Space Sheriff Gavan had been captured and taken to Makuu Space, they suggested that they use their Ranger Keys to open the gateway to Makuu Space. Don used the Battle Kenya key, while Joe (Gokai Blue) used the DenziBlue key alongside him to open the gateway. After Gavan was rescued, a mysterious voice requested that the three of them (who happened to look alike) transform. Shirou and Daigoro were temporarily given their keys back to transform alongside Gavan. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger vs. Uchuu Keiji Gavan: The Movie

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