Shuten Douji Brothers (シュテンドウジ兄弟 Shuten Dōji Kyōdai, 15, 16 & 53): Two twin Oni that are heavy sake-drinking masters of the sword, able to fight as a unit. The older orange brother has two-horns and breathes fire while the younger blue brother is one-horned.

Character History

They were both imprisoned for killing 100 Youkai while in drunked stupor, chained and restained in their cell, until Junior offered the brothers their freedom on the condition that they kill the Kakurangers for him. With the aid of the Hanarangers, the Kakurangers were stranded in the middle of the woods and separated from each other for the two brothers to fight and capture. Only Sasuke escaped the trap Ep. 15: Argh! Awesome Guys and managed to free the others. While the others fought the Hanarangers and Dorodoros, NinjaRed battled both brothers and managed to counter their trademark attack with multiple shadow-clones before using his Fullmoon Slash x 8 on them/the Yokai. Upon growing to seek revenge on Sasuke, Prof. Yugami provided the Shuten Douji Brothers with metallic armor where the orange one gained a drill arm and the blue gained a buzz-saw arm. They were both wiped out simultaneously by one swipe of Muteki Shogun's Flaming Sword attack after they knocked the Beast General Fighters around for a while, until the orange one injured his brother by accident. Ep. 16: The Red Monkey's Oni Extermination The Shuten Douji Brothers were named after the most infamous Oni in Japanese myth.

The Shuten Douji Brothers reappeared, along with all the other defeated Youkai, within the Seal Door after their master Daimaou was finally contained there by the Kakurangers. Reeling that they were now powerless in captivity, the Youkai all vowed that they would one day be reborn and regain their power, cursing humanity. Final Ep.: Sealing!!
