"The High-Up Adventurer! Bouken Blue!"
―Bouken Blue's roll call[src]

Souta Mogami (最上 蒼太 Mogami Sōta) is the High-Up Adventurer Bouken Blue (高き冒険者ボウケンブルー Takaki Bōkensha Bōken Burū) of the Boukengers. He is a former secret investigator and "spy".

Biography

Boukenger

Called a "spy," Souta is the information expert of the team. He is also a specialist in personal computers and digital technology. He is a little cocky, as evidenced in Task 1 when he nearly ended up touching a fake Heart of Gordom, something that Natsuki Mamiya foresaw, and later, when he hurt his hand punching a Karth in the chest with full force (and discovered the healing factor that the Karths possess). He initially considered Masumi Inou to be a thief (and Masumi sometimes calls him an "ex-spy").

In Task 3 his past as a spy was revealed. Kazuma Yamatoni noted that he and Souta are the same since he used to do various missions to please himself. When Souta realized that his missions caused ever lasting pain to others, he quit being a spy and told Kazuma that they were not the same. Souta is always with a smile and his nature is gentle and polite. Souta's persona as a gentleman brings himself to a fault when he fights against beautiful women — he can't help but go easy on them, especially Shizuka of the Wind (whom he and Sakura Nishihori fight frequently).

Although Souta says he never hurts anyone, but in truth he had hurt many. In Task 23 this was revealed. In this task, Souta's old spy partner, Yuji Toba, was hired by Furious Demon God Gai and Grand Beast Rei to interrogate Souta for the whereabouts of the Precious warehouse. Although Souta fought through Rei's mind read ability at first, Yuji used the memories of Souta during his times as spy to hinder his mind defense. However, Yuji, in the end, helped Souta and the other Boukengers to defeat Gai and Rei's robot by setting off the bomb he placed in the robot. Also, to much relief and annoyance to the Boukengers, the Precious warehouse was a fake.

Souta acts like a brotherly figure to Natsuki, and often considers her feelings even against Satoru Akashi's orders. He also has a catchphrase he constantly uses, which is "Sou sou Souta!" ("Sou sou Souta" is a pun off of "Sou sou sou da", which means "Yes, that's right."). After encounter with Shizuka and Gekkou of Illusions, Souta found his treasure to be his friends.

Legend War

A few years later, Souta 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, he gathered all the Rangers together and gave them the order to sacrifice their powers to wipe out the first invasion's armada.

Super Hero Taisen

The Boukengers, alongside the Abarangers, Hurricanegers, Magirangers, and Dekarangers, emerge through a dimensional wall.

Souta, alongside his team (Bouken Silver and Zubaan were absent), among the majority of the Super Sentai heroes, was caught up in the "Super Hero Taisen" incident which eventually resulted in the Super Sentai teams and Kamen Riders joining forces to defeat both Dai-Zangyack and Dai-Shocker. During the final battle, he is seen with Clover King fighting Musca Worm. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen

Super Hero Taisen Z

The five-man Boukenger team was part of a force of Sentai and Rider reinforcements led by Akarenger and Kamen Rider #1Icon-crosswiki.png that came to assist the Sentai and Riders of recent years who were overwhelmed by the revived monster army of the Space Crime Syndicate MadouIcon-crosswiki.png. The combined forces of superheroes were able to turn the tide against the Madou army. They lined up and used their various finisher attacks to destroy the revived monsters.

After Demon King PsychoIcon-crosswiki.png was destroyed and the battle was finally over, the Boukengers appeared standing on a cliff with all the other heroes who appeared to help, to say goodbye to the heroes of recent years before taking their leave.

Lucky Mode

Bouken Blue donned "Lucky Mode" alongside the rest of the team in the The 30 Sentai Encyclopedia file of Task 46: The Awakened Darkness, in a parody of the Power-Up Henshin, calling back to the lucky outfit Akashi wore in Task 27: The Feng-Shui Trap.



Transformation and Roll Call

Ranger Key

The Bouken Blue Ranger Key.

The Bouken Blue Ranger Key (ボウケンブルーレンジャーキー Bōken Burū Renjā Kī) is Souta Mogami'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 Bouken Blue Ranger Key was mainly used by Joe Gibken (Gokai Blue), who used it to fight as Bouken Blue.

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

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

Imitations

The Precious Vril took the form of Souta. After seizing data from Souta's laptop, Vril-Souta copied the Boukengers' forms, transforming into a clone of Bouken Blue, Vril Blue (ヴリルルー Vuriru Burū), after Souta attacked it to save Natsuki from it. Vril Blue then multiplied by the hundreds after it was blasted with the Dual Crasher, only to be immobilized by GoGo Mixer. However, Vril Blue and its copies merged to form a VERY obviously imperfect DaiBouken copy. Vril is terminated by DaiBouken Drill and Mixer's Bind Break. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Task 8: The Treasure of Atlantis

Evil Boukengers.

A copy of Bouken Blue was created by Ouga as part of the Evil Boukengers.

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Souta Mogami is portrayed by Masashi Mikami (三上 真史 Mikami Masashi). As Bouken Blue, his suit actor was Yasuhiro Takeuchi (竹内 康博 Takeuchi Yasuhiro), his sub was Yoshifumi Oshikawa (押川 善文 Oshikawa Yoshifumi).

Etymology

  • "Mogami" (最上) is from the surname of Japanese explorer Mogami Tokunai (最上 徳内), who explored Ezo and Sakhalin and some of the Kuril Islands in 1785-1786.
  • The first kanji of "Souta," "蒼," can also be read as "ao" ( ao), the Japanese kanji for the color blue.

Dub names

In the Korean dub of Boukenger entitled Power Rangers Treasure Force, which aired in South Korea, Souta is renamed Ryuu.
