Stinger (スティンガー Sutingā) is Sasori Orange (サソリオレンジ Sasori Orenji, lit. Scorpion Orange), the Orange Ranger of the Kyurangers and a spy for Shou Ronpo who joined Jark Matter to find his brother Scorpio. A Scorpionman from the Sasori System, he is a witness in Doctor Anton's murder and pretended to be an enemy to the Kyurangers before revealing his true motives as Shou Ronpo's spy and the first Kyuranger to be awakened, and the one who murdered Doctor Anton and framed Stinger was indeed his brother Scorpio. Two years after the permanent defeat of Don Armage, he succeeded Shou Ronpo as the new commander of the remaining Kyurangers as peacekeepers of the universe.

Aged 24 (In 2017), Stinger was born on November 11th.[1]

Character History

Early Life

Stinger grew up in what appeared to be a poor village in the Sasori System. As a child, he had a close relationship with his older brother Scorpio, who gave him a necklace to carry as a part of Scorpio that would always be with him.

Stinger Before.png

One night, Stinger was singing with his villagers until his brother Scorpio returned from an expedition. However, they realize that Scorpio defected to Jark Matter for only one reason, power. Slowly, Scorpio began to execute everyone in the village, with Jark Matter blasting the rest to death, living only Stinger alive. Screaming at his brother in grief and anger and demanding an answer why, he was merely answered by a cold smirk from his brother. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.5: 9 Ultimate Saviors

As Sasori Orange

At an unknown point, Stinger found the Sasori Kyutama. Approached by Shou Ronpo, he gained a Seiza Blaster and became Sasori Orange. However, his Kyuranger status was kept a secret to anyone but Ronpo, who set in motion the events for Stinger to become a spy for Jark Matter. He soon was able to track down where Scorpio was but arrived too late to save Dr. Anton, who was murdered by Scorpio.

In the present time, on the planet Needle, Stinger was seen alone in the desert.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.2: Let's Go! Phantom Thief BN Team!

After the Kyurangers land on the planet Needle and destroyed all Indavers, Stinger confronts them and then transforms into Sasori Orange and battle them. Champ immediately fights Stinger in order to avenge his creator but the other Kyurangers try to stop him from doing so. While the Kyurangers held Champ back, Stinger used Sasori System native's sting to struck Balance, followed by Garu, Naga Ray, Hammie and Spada. When Stinger is about to sting Champ, Lucky saves him from his sting attack and uses Shishi Voyager to save the other Kyurangers who are wounded and retreats to Orion. Eriedrone finds Stinger and recruits him to be his personal servant. Champ finds Stinger alone and commences another battle just before Lucky saves Champ and battles Stinger instead. Stinger gets annoyed when Lucky thinks that he wants him to join the team, but he ultimately refuses and then fights him until they are interrupted by Needle's ruler Moretsuyoindaver, two Tsuyoindavers and the Indavers. Moretsuyoindaver says that Stinger did a great job and orders Tsuyoindavers and Indavers to attack Lucky. Stinger began to fight Moretsuyoindaver while Lucky fights Tsuyoindavers. Lucky and Stinger finish off Moretsuyoindaver and Tsuyoindavers. While Lucky summons Shishi Voyager to attack Moraimarz, suddenly, Stinger also summons Sasori Voyager in an attempt to stop Lucky and rescue Moraimarz, Champ uses Oushi Voyager to continue his fight against Stinger. The other Kyurangers arrive to aid Lucky and then the Shishi Voyager combines with Ookami Voyager, Hebitsukai Voyager, Chameleon Voyager and Kajiki Voyager into 01*03*06*07*09 KyurenOh. With Moraimarz being destroyed, Stinger escapes and prevent Champ from stopping him. Stinger enters the Jark Matter base and Eriedrone ask him why the Kyurangers are getting away. Stinger says that they won't get a chance. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.3: The Man from the Desert Star

Stinger soon learned that the Kyurangers were on Earth as Don Armage ordered him and Eriedrone to eliminate the rebels lest they discover the planet's secret. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.4: Dreamy Android

Stinger alongside Eriedrone headed off to Earth to kill the Kyurangers and reminding the Earth's citizens to remember the terror of the Jark Matter. After defeating the Kyurangers, Stinger was ordered to kill 2 boys who tried to help the Kyurangers. However, Stinger only kidnapped them to bargain for all 8 main Kyutama. During the night of the kidnapping, Stinger treated the boys gently by giving them bread for dinner. He also asked Eriedrone about his brother, Scorpio, who had joined Jark Matter, betraying his own race.

The next day, the eight Kyurangers arrived and gave them their Kyutama. Eriedrone decided to break the promise, but Stinger suddenly showed his true colors by refusing Don's order to kill the boys. It was revealed that Stinger is actually "The very first chosen Kyuranger and a spy" much to surprise for all 8 Kyuranger which vexed Naga because he knew that Shou Ronpo already hid the truth and Champ for hard to accept Stinger as a good guy. With all 9 members gathered, Stinger with the aid of all remaining 8 managed to destroy Eriedrone once and for all. However, he decided not to join the others on the Orion spaceship because he still needed to check on something on Earth. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.5: 9 Ultimate Saviors

While he was on Earth to undercover, Stinger was contacted by Raptor and convince him to do the KyuTama dancing but he refused to participate and do his own things and prefer to work alone instead. However he was confronted by the two assassins Ikargen and Mardakko and then engaged into battle.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.6: Flap! Dancing Star

Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.7: Take Back the Birthday!

After the destruction of Daikaan Mozuma's Moraimarz, the crew discovered that they had lost control of the ship and that they had been sent on a direct course to the Sun, causing a sharp rise in temperature much to the discomfort of Stinger and the other organics. The ship and crew were ultimately saved, however, as Mozuma was destroyed by Shishi Red and Koguma Skyblue, causing his microbic extensions to dissipate and return control of the ship. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.10: A Small Giant, Big Star!

Stinger reveals that his brother Scorpio was the true murderer of Dr. Anton. He feels regret because he failed to prevent this from happening. Stinger himself did not tell anyone of this because it was his own personal issue he had to deal with. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.13: Stinger's Challenge To His Brother!

Stinger discovers his brother, transformed into a monstrous Karo.

Learning that the Karo of the Sasori System had been sent to Earth, Stinger deduced that this Karo was Scorpio. Heading to the Big Moraimarz with Champ, Stinger encountered a monster with a scorpion tail who spoke in Scorpio's voice, realizing that this was what became of his brother. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.15: Savior of the Water Planet Vela

Stinger was hesitant to fight Scorpio. He believed Scorpio when he said he infiltrated Jark Matter to save the universe. He said Scorpio was all the family he had. Stinger told his brother about the Argo and the three Kyutama needed. Then Scorpio revealed his true plan by killing Don Armage and taking the universe for himself. Stinger asks Scorpio to put him out of his misery. However, Champ took the hit for him. Stinger was devastated, screaming Champ's name and running to him. Stinger wanted to find Scorpio to settle things, but Shou told him to take Champ to Rebellion HQ for repairs. Shou told him to calm down and said Champ died because Stinger lost his head. Stinger took Champ to Rebellion HQ and held onto his Kyutama while he was being repaired. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.16: Stinger's Reunion with His Brother

Waiting as Champ was repaired at Rebellion HQ, Stinger continued to feel guilty for the damage he sustained, Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.17: Lighting the Dome of Darkness! before took off his uniform and Seiza Blaster and left with his cloak donned. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.18: Emergency Dispatch! Space Hero! Stinger stole the Ho and Tomo Kyutamas from Raptor and Garu before going to Scorpio, who already stolen the Ryukotsu Kyutama and decided to settle things once and for all. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.19: The Elf of Forest Planet Keel

Overwhelmed by Scorpio's strength, he uses his clan forbidden technique, Antares to increase his strength but at the cost of his life. Despite using it, he was no match for his brother before Lucky and the rest comes in. With Scorpio only obtaining Ho and Ryukotsu Kyutama, he abducted Stinger before infecting him with the poison that was used to make people act like a zombie. Scorpio uses his little brother to fight against Lucky and Kotaro. Kotaro manages to make Stinger regain his senses before Lucky convinces Stinger to fight together once more. The three Kyurangers fought Scorpio but was still overwhelmed before Champ arrives and save them. Acknowledging Champ as his partner, the four Kyurangers fought Scorpio once again and emerge victorious, changing Scorpio back to his human form. Still, the Antares technique was rotting Stinger's life away and Scorpio decided to absorb the Antares poison onto himself. Afterward, Don Armage appears and decided to eliminate the Kyurangers along with Scorpio but Scorpio held Don Armage's attack for them to escape while informing the team the solution to stop the Moraimazu. Stinger was at hesitant at first but eventually flee before he, Champ, Lucky, and Kotaro uses the three Kyutama and met Tsurugi. At the end of that battle, he makes a grave for Scorpio and happily tells him that he will continue to live. Afterward, he met his teammates, apologizes before he makes his awkward leave. It is also revealed that he was the one who sewed the plushies version of everyone except himself (which was made by Kotaro) and left them on the table just to make sure Champ is not lonely when everyone is absent.

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 II, Stinger was confronted by an illusion of Scorpio, whom he destroyed without hesitation by impaling him with the Kyu Spear. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.25: Planet Toki, the Boy's Determination!


After Don Armage

Stinger is in his new outfit.jpg

After the Kyurangers destroyed Don Armage, Stinger was one of the few Kyurangers who remained active rather than returning to civilian life since his own world and race had already been lost.

Within two years, he had risen to Shou's old rank of Commander and was captain of the Orion Battle Ship, with Raptor as his copilot and Kotaro as the only active Kyuranger reporting directly to him.

4 Week Continuous Special Super Sentai Strongest Battle!!

Upon receiving an invitation to participate in the Strongest Battle tournament, Stinger was sent by his old comrade and current superior - Galactic Federation President Ohtori Tsurugi - to use that as a guise to investigate strange activity coming from the planet. He was assigned to Team Oddball alongside Yamato Kazakiri, Takaharu Igasaki, Kagura ______, and Captain Marvelous. Though he pulled his weight when called upon to fight alongside Takaharu, he was more interested in gathering information, asking his opponent, BoukenSilver, if he had noticed anything strange since his arrival. Through this and his own attempts, he soon realized that no Sentai could contact the outside world or summon their mecha while on the planet.

Consequently, he left the team room with apologies for Yamato in order to further investigate between fights, thereby missing what was supposed to be a 3-on-3 quarter final round. Reaching an underground layer full of research on Sentai as well as unreadable spellbooks, he encountered Doggie Kruger (DekaMaster), who had been similarly investigating on behalf of SPD. As Shou had already briefed Stinger on half the Kyurangers' cross-dimensional encounter with SPD, the two quickly agreed to work together, with Kruger running the spellbook pages through his SPD license's translation software. When the two were assaulted by an army of grunts from various generations of anti-Sentai armies. Stinger held them off so Kruger could warn Team Oddball - mostly Yamato - of what they had discovered. In turn, Kruger would ask Team Oddball on his behalf to entrust Stinger with his SPD license, the pages almost fully decrypted, as well as SPD-issue handcuffs for when they finally caught the perpetrator of the conspiracy.

Stinger, however, encountered Takaharu in the Gaisorg armor while fighting the combined armies. Upon defeating him, he was himself controlled by the armor until Marvelous and Yamato defeated him and broke him free. Stinger accepted Kruger's gifts from them, reading the pages to discover that Rita was using the wishing stone of the planet to revive Ultimate Dai Satan, a being powerful enough to eliminate the whole universe.

"Let me correct you. We're not five, we're nine!"
―Stinger to Quval[src]

Through unknown circumstances, the nine Kyurangers made a brief appearance on an Earth where Jark Matter was not present. After Hammie warns Lucky to not winning alone with that with Naga corrects that the eagle is pink, and introducing them to Deathgalien Trio Leaders, Stinger came as he transformed with Garu, Champ and Spada as they correct the number of members was nine, not five. Instead, the Kyurangers arrived to intervene against the Deathgalien before they could interfere with the Zyuohgers' fight with the Ninningers for the future of Super Sentai against Gillmarda. With Sasori Orange fighting off Quval alongside Ookami Blue, the Kyurangers eventually forced the Deathgalien to retreat before taking their leave with their appearance observed by the Zyuohger ally Bud, who realized that the future was in safe hands.

Personality

Stinger is a quiet and serious man who follows the path he believes is right. While short-tempered and a brutal fighter, he has a code of honor: he will not kill children or allow anyone to interrupt his battle for him.

Stinger is searching for his elder brother Scorpio, who betrayed him and his people for Jark Matter. He was collected when he became a Kyuranger but when Champ was destroyed by Scorpio, he started loses his cool, even wanting to go after his own brother to avenge Champ.

Of course, he is willing to sacrifice himself just to prevent others from getting caught in his matter with Scorpio. Eventually, when he noticed the revived Champ, he also started calling 'aibo' (literally 'partner') without realizing it and began getting along with the robot wrestler. Despite his cold looking attitude, he has a soft side to him. For example, he makes plush versions of his teammates to accompany Champ when he was being repaired at the Rebellion base.

Stinger's compassion and trust extend to all who could be considered allies. When he was undercover in the Sentai Strongest Battle Tournament, he didn't hesitate to tell Kruger to get Yamato of the Zyuohgers to help him out, despite the latter not knowing Stinger was on assignment.

Powers and Abilities

  • Scorpion Tail: Stinger has a flexible tail on his back that can extend at will. It can move fast enough to block incoming bullets. He's also shown to be precise with his strikes, able to use his tail to destroy Champ's beserker chip without also damaging his heart of justice - a 1 in 1,000,000 shot according to Doctor Anton. This tail remains out for him to use even when in a Sentai suit - Kyuranger or Gaisorg.
    • Venomous Stinger: The end of his tail possesses a stinger that can inject venom. The venom is strong enough to make the victims, regardless of being a robot, a mechanical lifeform or a human-like, instantly paralyzed. His stinger's also sharp enough to penetrate a Kyuranger's suit.
    • Antidote Stinger: His stinger that can inject an antidote which can cure the zombification inflicted by his older brother's venom. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Space.13: Stinger's Challenge To His Brother!
    • Antares Technique: A forbidden technique created by his people, Stinger can inject himself with his own venom, making himself stronger, while slowly depleting his own life force.
