―ChangeGriffon's roll call[src]

Shou Hayate (疾風 翔 Hayate Shō) is ChangeGriffon (チェンジグリフォン Chenji Gurifon) of the Changemen and the second-in-command to Change Dragon.



Formerly a Ranger of the Earth Defense Force branch. A dandy and narcissistic womanizer, Shou actually has a soft side that he keeps mostly hidden behind his cool exterior. Originally joined the army just to get attention from women, but is actually a strong and dependable soldier. His trademark is to fix his hair in the midst of battle. Shou is frequently set traps by various Gozma opponents posing as women in peril. He fell head over heels for Sakura, the angelic girl from Meruru Star.

As ChangeGriffon, he, too, is armed with the Change Sword and Griffon Zooka, which is what becomes the shaft for the missile to be fired from Power Bazooka. His unique fighting ability is his agility which he acquired while working the field as a Ranger. He co-pilots Helichanger 2 with Mermaid.

Legend War

Years later, Shou 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, AkaRenger noticed the fleet moving towards them and gathered all the Rangers together, subsequently giving them the order to sacrifice their powers to wipe out the first invasion's armada. The ChangeGriffon powers are later used by Don Dogoier via the Ranger Keys.

Greater Power

"Essentially, you people have lit a fire in our hearts."
―Shou Hayate[src]

Secret Operations After Basco's defeat by Captain Marvelous, he along with representatives of the four other teams (Sun Vulcan, Flashman, Maskman and Fiveman) whose greater powers were taken by Basco, contacted the Gokaigers and granted them their greater powers and approval. He said that they have lit a fire in their hearts. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 49: The Greatest Treasure in the Universe

Ranger Key

The ChangeGriffon Ranger Key.

The ChangeGriffon Ranger Key (チェンジグリフォンレンジャーキー Chenji Gurifon Renjā Kī) is Shou Hayate'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 ChangeGriffon Ranger Key was mainly used by Don Dogoier (Gokai Green), who used it to fight as ChangeGriffon.

The Changeman 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 puppet Changemen fired their Power Bazooka alongside the Flashmen, Maskmen, Livemen, and Turborangers, only to be swiftly defeated by the individual finisher attacks of the Gokaigers and Goseigers as they emerged from the resulting fireball.

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


  • Shou is the first and only griffon-themed Ranger in Super Sentai.
  • Although being based on Griffon, the image of creature that appeared during the transformation and roll call and the one in his helmet are more similar to a winged lion.
