Two years after the permanent defeat of [[Don Armage]], Shou remains in the Rebellion as Supreme Commander, while [[Stinger]] takes over him as commander of the Kyurangers.

===Fighting in the Rebellion, and becoming Commander===
As a member of the Rebellion, Shou served under Supreme Commander [[Big Bear]]. While searching for the other Change [[Kyutama|Kyutamas]] and the nine Kyurangers, he devised an alternate method of fighting, developing system to use the Skill Kyutamas, in particular the Ryu Kyutama, to force a transformation into Ryu Violet. However, this system was incomplete, and had a time limit imposed on it.

However, this system was incomplete, and had a time limit imposed on it.
   
 
During those days, Shou was headstrong, courageous and refused to listen to orders, choosing instead to fight the [[Space Shogunate Jark Matter]] instead of sitting by and letting evil thrive. When the Rebellion's leadership came under attack by the Jark Matter assassins [[Ikargen]] and [[Mardakko]], Shou chose to confront them despite his imperfect transformation. The transformation failed mid-battle, and Shou would've been killed if not for Big Bear's intervention. Big Bear was mortally wounded and sacrificed his life to allow Shou to escape. This event left Shou in charge of the Rebellion, and instilled in him the consequences of insubordination. {{Storylink|Space.9: Burn! Dragon Master}}

When Shou ordered six Kyurangers to destroy five Consumarz without defeating their governors, Spada objected saying that the governors would retaliate by oppressing the people who lived under their shadow. Shou acknowledged this but prioritized the Consumarz because Earth could implode if they absorbed all its Planetium. Spada, Lucky and Hammie eventually defied orders and broke off from the group to feed citizens whose food was stolen by the governor. This led Garu, Raptor, and eventually Stinger to be ambushed and defeated by Ikagen and Madoko. Shou ordered Spada's group to rescue them without trying to defeat the duo. Remembering his own failures, Shou gave them a warning: defying a single order can sometimes lead to the collapse of an entire organization.
  +
  +
Knowing they would lose, however, Shou immediately flew to Earth with the RyuKyutama, using it to become RyuViolet for the first time since the death of Big Bear. Using this form, Shou held Ikagen and Madoko off long enough for Lucky, Stinger, Garu, Hammie, and Raptor to escape. Spada, however, stayed to help Shou, leading to his recapture. Upon returning to the ship, Shou explained the Kyurangers the origin of RyuViolet and why he refused to call himself a Kyuranger with that form.
  +
  +
His explanation was punctuated with Ikagen demanding that all Kyurangers except the "imposter [Shou]" come if they want to save Spada. Shou snuck away to try and save Spada by himself, rendering Lucky unconscious in the process. Shou managed to free him using RyuViolet, but Spada refused to run while Shou was still fighting. Shou relented on the condition that Spada obey one simple order - survive.
  +
  +
Shou was forced out-of-morph just as Lucky and the remaining Kyurangers on Earth arrived. Lucky convinced Shou that he should seek to fulfill his desire to fight even if it meant transcending the legend of "nine" Kyurangers. The nine Chage Kyutamas then interacted with the RyuKyutama to spawn a giant dragon, which granted Shou's wish to fight with his comrades by fueling the RyuKyutama, changing it into a tenth Change Kyutama. Shou immediately used it to morph into the evolved form of RyuViolet - the RyuCommander. With the other Kyurangers, Shou was able to drive back Ikagen and Madoko. However , his suggestion to officially change the name of the Kyurangers to Jiurangers (to relfect that there were ten rangers instead of nine) was shot down by the others.

Shou was among the team whom pursued Madakko through a black hole which they found to be a wormhole leading to an alternate [[Earth]] free of [[Jark Matter]]. With Garu and Hammie, Shou was arrested by [[Dekarangers]] [[Senichi Enari]] and [[Koume Kodou]] on suspicion of being [[Alienizer]]s due to their lack of Visas, and brought to the [[Neo DekaBase]]. The situation was soon cleared up by [[Special Police Dekaranger]] chief [[Doggie Kruger]], a [[Anubis|canine]] alien who bore a curious resemblence to their [[wolfman]] teammate. Finding that the wormhole would soon close and leave them stranded, Shou, Garu and Hammie boarded RyuTeiOh, using the [[DekaWing Cannon]] provided by the Dekarangers to keep the wormhole in time for Lucky and Naga to defeat Madakko and retrieve the Rashinban Kyutama. {{Storylink|Space.18: Emergency Dispatch!

Seeking the Kyutama of the [[Tokei System]], the Kyurangers came to the planet [[Toki]] and turned the 12 keys needed to unlock it within 30 minutes. Approaching key X, Shou an apparition of [[Big Bear]], and found himself in his attire before he inherited the title of Supreme Commander from him. Shou conversed with Big Bear for a while until Balance hurried him, both to turn the key in time and because their visible comraderie disheartened Naga, who was not yet as attuned to such feelings. {{Storylink|Space.25: Planet Toki, the Boy's Determination!}}

{{nihongo|'''Ryu Violet'''|リュウバイオレット|Ryuu Baioretto}} is Shou Ronpo's initial Ranger form. This form predates all the modern-day Kyurangers (save of course [[Tsurugi Ohtori]]), having been used by Shou during his days as a soldier in the rebellion. The system for this form was invented as a way to allow those who had not been chosen by the Kyutama to fight. As the system Shou had invented used Skill Kyutama instead of Change Kyutama, this transformation had a time limit. After the time limit expired, Shou was left weakened and vulnerable.

*Fans have speculated over whether Shou Ronpo or [[Tsurugi Ohtori]] represented Kyuranger's Sixth Ranger, even after the series' end. The debate was put to rest after producer and early advisor [[Shinichiro Shirakura]] tweeted to a fan replying that the former is indeed the Sixth Ranger. <ref>https://twitter.com/cron204/status/1237014006725918721</ref> In addition, Shou was among the Sixth Rangers alongside their respective Red Rangers in a promotional for a hero meet and greet in Kashiikaen, with imagery from Toei and TV Asahi accompanying the promotion. <ref>https://www.kashiikaen.com/event/archives/19</ref>

"Walking the path of the dragon. Pursuing the dragon's path! If I don't do it, who will?!"
―Ryu Violet/Commander's Pre-Transformation catchphrase[src]

"Ryu Violet!"
―Ryu Violet's roll call[src]

"Dragon Ma-Star! Ryu Commander!"
―Ryu Commander's roll call[src]

"Like a dragon who has gained wings."
―Ryu Commander's phrase after forming RyuTeiOh.[src]

Shou Ronpo (ショウ・ロンポー Shō Ronpō) is a Rebellion leader and the commander of Kyurangers from the Ryu System. He becomes the tenth member of the team, Ryu Violet (リュウバイオレット Ryū Baioretto, lit. Dragon Violet), later evolving into Ryu Commander (リュウコマンダー Ryū Komandā, lit. Dragon Commander). He is also the second-in-command to Shishi Red. Two years after the permanent defeat of Don Armage, Shou remains in the Rebellion as Supreme Commander, while Stinger takes over him as commander of the Kyurangers.

Aged 40, Shou was born on September 9th.[1]

Character HistoryEdit

Fighting in the Rebellion, and becoming CommanderEdit

As a member of the Rebellion, Shou served under Supreme Commander Big Bear. While searching for the other Change Kyutamas and the nine Kyurangers, he devised an alternate method of fighting, developing system to use the Skill Kyutamas, in particular the Ryu Kyutama, to force a transformation into Ryu Violet. However, this system was incomplete, and had a time limit imposed on it.

During those days, Shou was headstrong, courageous and refused to listen to orders, choosing instead to fight the Space Shogunate Jark Matter instead of sitting by and letting evil thrive. When the Rebellion's leadership came under attack by the Jark Matter assassins Ikargen and Mardakko, Shou chose to confront them despite his imperfect transformation. The transformation failed mid-battle, and Shou would've been killed if not for Big Bear's intervention. Big Bear was mortally wounded and sacrificed his life to allow Shou to escape. This event left Shou in charge of the Rebellion, and instilled in him the consequences of insubordination. Space.9: Burn! Dragon Master

Collecting the KyutamasEdit

As depicted in a series of illustrations by Shou Ronpo himself, he traveled across various constellations in an epic journey to gather the power of the legendary Kyutamas so as to oppose the tyranny of Jark Matter taking him to places such as amidst a sea of scorching magma to a frigid wasteland. Among the Kyutamas he collected was that of Pega-san of the Pegasus System, who had resonated with Shou's burning desire to see the defeat of Jark Matter. Traveling together, Shou supposedly wielded the power of Pega-san to defeat the Giant Monster of planet Babangi. However, the authenticity of parts of Shou's story would be doubted by Naga Rei. Space.6: Flap! Dancing Star

Recruiting the KyurangersEdit

Heeding the word of Big Bear, Space.9: Burn! Dragon Master Shou Ronpo sought out the people who would become the Kyurangers as well as gathering the Kyutamas. The first such person he found was Stinger, a young man who was searching across space for his older brother Scorpio, who had sold out him and his tribe in the Sasori System to Jark Matter, to the point of attacking Jark Matter members himself. Approaching Stinger, Shou was engaged by the youth, who assumed that he too was a member of Jark Matter. Though making short work of Stinger, Shou realized his strength and verified him as a potential Kyuranger when he saw the Sasori Kyutama drop from his person. Picking up the Kyutama while presenting the Transformation Controller Seiza Blaster, Shou offered Stinger a chance to put his strength to good use by taking Jark Matter down. Space.13: Stinger's Challenge To His Brother! Respecting his wish to find his brother, Shou planted Stinger to spy on Jark Matter for such information as well as anything else of use to the Rebellion. Space.5: 9 Ultimate Saviors

Commanding the KyurangersEdit

Boarding the ORION, Shou was introduced by Raptor 283 to the seven Kyurangers. Making his eccentric nature apparent to everyone present while dropping off a pile of auxiliary Kyutamas, Shou gave the team the mission of stopping Jark Matter from destroying the planet Needle through the deprivation of its Planet Jume. While Raptor was concerned with the threat of Stinger, Shou Ronpo was preoccupied with thinking of an okay phrase, eventually coining the term OKyu. Space.3: The Man from the Desert Star

Shou next sent the Kyurangers to Earth, a planet strangely containing numerous Moraimarz. Introducing the Kyulette, which would randomly select an away team of five in order to conserve Kyu Energy, Shou sent Raptor with them to buy some peaches while Balance and Naga Rei were left behind on the ORION to work on equipment under him. Raptor's trip to Earth would ultimately lead to her realizing her dream of fighting Jark Matter as she awakened her Kyutama and became Washi Pink, helping in taking down the first Daikaan of Earth. Shou denied Naga's suspicion that he knew Raptor was destined to become a Kyuranger. Space.4: Dreamy Android

Becoming RyuCommander
Edit

When Shou ordered six Kyurangers to destroy five Consumarz without defeating their governors, Spada objected saying that the governors would retaliate by oppressing the people who lived under their shadow. Shou acknowledged this but prioritized the Consumarz because Earth could implode if they absorbed all its Planetium. Spada, Lucky and Hammie eventually defied orders and broke off from the group to feed citizens whose food was stolen by the governor. This led Garu, Raptor, and eventually Stinger to be ambushed and defeated by Ikagen and Madoko. Shou ordered Spada's group to rescue them without trying to defeat the duo. Remembering his own failures, Shou gave them a warning: defying a single order can sometimes lead to the collapse of an entire organization.

Knowing they would lose, however, Shou immediately flew to Earth with the RyuKyutama, using it to become RyuViolet for the first time since the death of Big Bear. Using this form, Shou held Ikagen and Madoko off long enough for Lucky, Stinger, Garu, Hammie, and Raptor to escape. Spada, however, stayed to help Shou, leading to his recapture. Upon returning to the ship, Shou explained the Kyurangers the origin of RyuViolet and why he refused to call himself a Kyuranger with that form.

His explanation was punctuated with Ikagen demanding that all Kyurangers except the "imposter [Shou]" come if they want to save Spada. Shou snuck away to try and save Spada by himself, rendering Lucky unconscious in the process. Shou managed to free him using RyuViolet, but Spada refused to run while Shou was still fighting. Shou relented on the condition that Spada obey one simple order - survive.

Shou was forced out-of-morph just as Lucky and the remaining Kyurangers on Earth arrived. Lucky convinced Shou that he should seek to fulfill his desire to fight even if it meant transcending the legend of "nine" Kyurangers. The nine Chage Kyutamas then interacted with the RyuKyutama to spawn a giant dragon, which granted Shou's wish to fight with his comrades by fueling the RyuKyutama, changing it into a tenth Change Kyutama. Shou immediately used it to morph into the evolved form of RyuViolet - the RyuCommander. With the other Kyurangers, Shou was able to drive back Ikagen and Madoko. However , his suggestion to officially change the name of the Kyurangers to Jiurangers (to relfect that there were ten rangers instead of nine) was shot down by the others.




Shou was among the team whom pursued Madakko through a black hole which they found to be a wormhole leading to an alternate Earth free of Jark Matter. With Garu and Hammie, Shou was arrested by Dekarangers Senichi Enari and Koume Kodou on suspicion of being Alienizers due to their lack of Visas, and brought to the Neo DekaBase. The situation was soon cleared up by Special Police Dekaranger chief Doggie Kruger, a canine alien who bore a curious resemblence to their wolfman teammate. Finding that the wormhole would soon close and leave them stranded, Shou, Garu and Hammie boarded RyuTeiOh, using the DekaWing Cannon provided by the Dekarangers to keep the wormhole in time for Lucky and Naga to defeat Madakko and retrieve the Rashinban Kyutama.

Shou Ronpo Card

Seeking the Kyutama of the Tokei System, the Kyurangers came to the planet Toki and turned the 12 keys needed to unlock it within 30 minutes. Approaching key X, Shou an apparition of Big Bear, and found himself in his attire before he inherited the title of Supreme Commander from him. Shou conversed with Big Bear for a while until Balance hurried him, both to turn the key in time and because their visible comraderie disheartened Naga, who was not yet as attuned to such feelings.

Video game appearancesEdit

Super Sentai Legend WarsEdit

12 Kyuranger in Super Sentai Legend Wars

Kyuranger as seen in Super Sentai Legend Wars.

Ryu Commander appears with his team among all Sentai in the mobile game Super Sentai Legend Wars.

PersonalityEdit

He tries to give off the persona of being the "Strongest Ever", but his real character is like an old man.

Even in the worst of times, he keeps a proper tone.[2]

Shou has a habit of missing the point in front of him to figure out how to word things right. For example, when most of the team was affected by Stinger's toxin, Shou wanted to know what to use to respond to the Kyurangers instead of "Roger."

However, Shou does have a serious side, showing his leadership figure when he warned the Kyurangers not to engage some of Jark Matter's assassins, both of whom are at their dangerous level yet. It is shown he had been guilt-ridden due to the death of his predecessor Big Bear and don't want to see his group die quickly in front of his eyes, until Lucky and the other eight Kyurangers reminded Shou to move on and carry the late-Big Bear's will in his honor, no matter what sacrifice Shou and the other Kyurangers must make.

Another downside of his personality is that he's a compulsive deceiver, making his team members question his decisions, especially Naga.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

  • Super Speed: As seen in his first battle against Ikargen and Madakko. As Ryu Violet he has show to move at a speed fast enough to catch them by surprise as shown in episode 9 this power was passed on to Ryu Commander as well.
  • Quick Reflexes: As seen in his first battle as Ryu Commander he has show to be quick in dodging blasts shot by Ikargen and Madakko.
  • Weapon Skills: As seen in his first battle as Ryu Commander he has been able to use the Ryutsueder as both a melee and firing weapon with no problems of any kind and has also been show to use it to do back shots or create an shield without any training or assistance of any kind.
  • Martial Arts Prowess: In his fight with Deathgong he has shown to be capable of martial arts (presumably Southern Dragon Kung Fu) to the point he is capable of forming a small energy ball between his hands for a melee attack.

WeaknessesEdit

  • Weak Back: Whenever Shou gets overexcited, he risks spraining his back, causing him to be unable to move.

FormsEdit

Kyu-violet

Ryu Violet

"Ryu Kyutama! Seiza Change!"
―Transformation announcement via Ryutsueder[src]

Ryu Violet (リュウバイオレット Ryuu Baioretto) is Shou Ronpo's initial Ranger form. This form predates all the modern-day Kyurangers (save of course Tsurugi Ohtori), having been used by Shou during his days as a soldier in the rebellion. The system for this form was invented as a way to allow those who had not been chosen by the Kyutama to fight. As the system Shou had invented used Skill Kyutama instead of Change Kyutama, this transformation had a time limit. After the time limit expired, Shou was left weakened and vulnerable.

Appearances: Kyuranger Episodes 8, 9

Kyu-violet2

Ryu Commander

"Ryu Kyutama! Seiza Change!"
―Transformation announcement via Ryutsueder[src]

Ryu Commander (リュウコマンダー Ryū Komandā) is Shou Ronpo's newer, evolved Ranger form. When the power of the nine Change Kyutama resonated with his desire to fight together with the Kyurangers, Shou's Ryu Kyutama evolved from a Skill Kyutama to a Change Kyutama. This allowed his transformation to evolve into a newer, stronger form, removed the time limit it originally had, and manifested the Ryu Voyager to fight alongside him.

Behind the ScenesEdit

PortrayalEdit

Shou OP

Shou Ronpo/Ryu Commander

NotesEdit

  • Fans have speculated over whether Shou Ronpo or Tsurugi Ohtori represented Kyuranger's Sixth Ranger, even after the series' end. The debate was put to rest after producer and early advisor Shinichiro Shirakura tweeted to a fan replying that the former is indeed the Sixth Ranger. [3] In addition, Shou was among the Sixth Rangers alongside their respective Red Rangers in a promotional for a hero meet and greet in Kashiikaen, with imagery from Toei and TV Asahi accompanying the promotion. [4]
    • With this revelation, Shou is officially the first Violet Sixth Ranger in Super Sentai History.
    • This makes Shou Ronpo the first Sixth Ranger to debut early in Space 8, beating Kyoryu Gold (who first appeared in Brave 10).
  • His name is a pun on xiaolongbao, a type of steamed bun from China.
  • While he is not the first tokusatsu heroIcon-crosswiki to wear a trenchcoatIcon-crosswiki, he is the first Sentai Ranger to do so. Interestingly, the trenchcoat, the Dragon motif, and a dual mode weapon are some similarities with Kamen Rider WizardIcon-crosswiki. The only difference is that Wizard is based on the European Dragon, whereas Ryu Commander has a Chinese Dragon motif.
  • Of the 88 constellations, Ryu Commander represents the constellation Draco, "The Dragon".
  • Interestingly, he wanted to change the team name to 'Zyuranger' after he unlocked his true powers, but the others refused to.
  • He is also similar to Doggie Kruger from Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger and Wise God Torin from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, as they are all animal mentors who became Rangers.
  • The Ryu Violet suit is the breastplate and helmet from the Ryu Commander suit combined with the ToQ 7gou costume.
  • His introduction quote is based on Souji TendouIcon-crosswiki's "Walking to the path of heaven" introduction quote from Kamen Rider KabutoIcon-crosswiki.
  • He is the first Purple Ranger since Gou Fukami (Geki Violet) to be on a Post Anniversary Sentai Team.
  • Shou Ronpo is the first Purple Ranger to have a dragon theme.
  • He is the first Purple Ranger and the first sixth to be the second-in-command of the team.
  • Both Shou and Doctor Ulshade from Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger have weak backs.
    • Incidentally, both of them are violet-colored Sentai Rangers.
  • He is similar to RJ from Power Rangers Jungle Fury as both are Violet Rangers, they are the mentors of their team, and the second-in-command to their Reds.
