"TenmaRanger! Heavenly Gravity Star, Shoji!"
―TenmaRanger's roll call[src]

Shoji of the Heavenly Gravity Star ("天重星" 将児 "Tenjūsei" Shōji) is TenmaRanger (テンマレンジャー Tenma Renjā, Pegasus Ranger) of the Dairangers. He is 20 years old (39 years old in the final episode of Gokaiger) and specializes in the Long Fist.



Shoji was nineteen years old when he became a Dairanger. His greatest dream in life was to become a world boxing champion. He is very playful and comical, but he also has a very strong sense of fair play. He could only apply his competitiveness to Kazu because the others weren't interested in such. He wears his emotions on his sleeves and is never afraid to fight.

During one of his training sessions, a boy named Kenbo was captured by the Gorma. After he failed to defend him, he tries to redeem himself, and succeeded in saving him.

When no one believed him, Daigo did.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 3: Your Souls, Please!

He was frightened by Ryo's father when he overpowered three of his teammates and when Kaku asked him to look after Ryo, he did so. As a true friend, he was determined to protect him.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 7: Traitor!

Shoji's personal opponents were The Three Gorma Stooges, who loved to play games and he taught them by example to put the urge to concentrate on their moral fiber above the need to cheat to win.

He would have frivolous crushes on women, but never on Rin, perhaps because he regarded her as more of a sister than anything. In Episode 11, he had to rescue a girl who he had a terrible crush on and managed to turn a magnet-Gorma's own power against it. In Episode 32, he was trapped inside a birdcage-Gorma with a little girl he was trying to save. He managed to get out by catching a ride with it's Familiar, a huge vulture-like bird. It was in Episode 40 wherein his influence on the Three Stupid Gorma first became too strong to be denied. Because of him, they placed honor before defeating him and may have died permanently.

Legend War

Years later, Shoji 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 Tenma Ranger powers are later utilized by Joe Gibken via the Ranger Keys.

Transformation and Roll Call

Ranger Key

Mobilates' Gokai Change announcement[src]

The TenmaRanger Ranger Key (テンマレンジャーレンジャーキー Tenma Renjā Renjā Kī) is Shoji'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 TenmaRanger Ranger Key was mainly used by Joe Gibken (Gokai Blue), who used it to fight as TenmaRanger.

The Dairanger 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 TenmaRanger was defeated as part of a group of surviving Blue warrior keys by Gokai Blue and Super Gosei Blue.

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. Shoji received his key back, allowing him to become TenmaRanger once more. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates


Copy Dairanger.

Multiple copies of Tenmaranger were created by Copy Empress using photos she took of the Dairangers. The first was a human clone created during a day at the pool; while a second was created alongside the first in order to double-team the respective Dairanger. A third was created in a team meant to face KirinRanger before he destroys all the clones with his RodArrow. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 25: The Grouped Opposite Squadron
