"Red1! (レッドワン! Reddo Wan!)"
―Red1's roll call.[src]

Shirou Gou (郷 史朗 Gō Shirō) is Red1 (レッドワン Reddo Wan) of the Biomen. He is the pilot of the first Japanese space shuttle. At 24 years old (51 in Gokaiger), he is the oldest of the Biomen. His Bio Particles enable him to understand the speech of animals, which sometimes alerts him to Gear attacks. He is also the son of Shinichirou Gou who disguises as Professor Shibata who later aids him and his group.



He was the pilot of the first Japanese space shuttle. During the first assault by Neo Empire Gear on Technotopia 21, he was caught in the crossfire and ran into BioRobo. Meeting Peebo, he was given a Techno Brace and became Red1.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 1: The Enigmatic Giant Robo Arrives

When the BioRobo broke down, he had to run back to BioBase to grab a spare circuit. On the way back to BioRobo, he became aware of his ability to speak with animals.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 3: Our Friend, BioRobo He recruited a team of animal informants to inform the team of Neo Empire Gear's activities.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 4: Self Destruct! Mecha-Humans

He grew up believing that his father was dead. However, after meeting Professor Shibata, even he is not so sure. In Episode 47, when Shirou saves his comrades from collapsing he was hit by the collapsed rock, unconscious only to be saved by Professor Shibata and both ends up trapped. Professor Shibata wakes him up and also calling his name which he remember the words from his childhood. After both were rescued by his comrades and was attacked by Silva, Shirou noticed Professor Shibata's disguise as he removes the fake mustache which Doctor Man finally meets his rival as Shinichirou Gou and Shirou realizes it was his father's name and it was his father all along in disguise which he denies that his father was dead as he goes off alone to stop Neo Empire Gear. By the time in Episode 48, Shinichirou finally tells his son and his comrades the whole truth that he experimented himself on cybernetics only to be caught by Doctor Man's mecha. Shirou was later convinced by his father while controlling one of the mechaclones that he has to stop the Neo Empire Gear and Doctor Man. By the time he and his group tried to rescue both Shuichi and his father from being held captive in Episode 50, he and his group are attacked by Doctor Man's power sources forcing them to revert back to their normal forms. When they are hit from Doctor Man's invention, he and his group are later saved by his father Shinichirou by sacrificing his life by destroying the device. After his father's dying words and being exploded to death, he goes to avenge his father with his group to transform into Biomen to destroy Silva's Balzion.

After the fall of Gear, he and his group bid farewell to Peebo and the BioRobo as they fly back in space and he and his group peacefully walk away after saving the Earth and return to their normal lives.

In him, passion and responsibility unite in an unusual combination, although he is a little quick-tempered at times. There was one time he was called for marriage but eventually refused because of the mission, where he had to confront Monster in making the samurai sword. Upon meeting with Professor Shibata who is actually his father Shinichirou in disguise, he is unsure of himself until he recognizes his disguise in the near end of Episode 47. He is also very close to his father Shinichirou after learning of his disguise and becoming concern towards him when he tried to take the matter to his own hands regarding about Balzion. When his father died from getting exploded after he sacrificed himself to save him and his group, he shows his vengeful side before he and his group transformed into Biomen to battle Balzion. Shirou also acts as an older brother figure to Shuichi Kageyama despite both of their respective fathers are against each other.

The Red1 Ranger Key (レッドワンレンジャーキー Reddo Wan Renjā Kī) is Shirou Gou'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.

The Bioman 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 Red1 was defeated as part of a group of surviving Red warrior keys by Gokai Red and Super Gosei Red. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle
