"“Spirit Ranger, Fire! (スピリットレンジャー、ファイヤー! Supiritto Renjā, Faiyā!)."
―Transformation announcement.[src]

"The Crashing Brave, Kyoryu Gray!"
―Kyoryu Gray's role call[src]

Tessai (鉄砕), is also known as Kyoryu Gray (キョウリュウグレー Kyōryū Gurē). He is the partner of Zyudenryu Bunpachy.


Tessai initially appearing bald.

He is the Clashing Brave (激突の勇者 Gekitotsu no Yūsha) and was the first Kyoryuger in existence, being active 1500 years ago in China. He was from a martial arts clan that mastered the Iron-Shattering Fist (鉄砕拳 Tessaiken), and has emerged into the present day as a Spirit to teach the Kyoryugers said technique and strengthen their bodies. His signature finishing move is the Furious Breakthrough (激烈突破 Gekiretsu Toppa) technique.[1]

First appearance

He arrives to give an announcement to the Kyoryugers: his partner Bunpachy has awakened and has been waiting for so long to join them. But, he will only let them have Bunpachy on the condition that they become stronger through his trials. He uses the power of the Guardians to test the core 5 Kyoryugers (Utsusemimaru does not participate, for he was able to improve himself in battle before Tessai's arrival) and their specialties; Ovirappoo is used to test Ian's marksmanship, Igeranodon is used on Nobuharu to see if his sense of humor gets in the way of his super-strength, Archenolon is used on Souji to test his swordsmanship, and Gurumonite is used on Amy to see if she can concentrate on her kicks. In the end, they all learn from the experience Ian learns to shoot on instinct, Nobuharu learns to focus on the task instead of joking, Souji overcomes the gravity field and improves his form, and Amy uses the dizziness to perform spinning kicks. Daigo had the hardest trial of all, with every effect the others had individually piled on him all at once. However, the result of the training was a huge disappointment for Tessai as only Daigo could not harm Debo Nagareboshi, even though he completed his trial with almost no effort.

After the enemy flees, he regards the Kyoryugers with pride, explaining that his color grey has a meaning; the ashen color of grey is a perfect mixture of black and white (yin and yang), and that the Kyoryugers have now learned this lesson, save for Daigo. Burning in anger, he throws Daigo and aggressively tells the others to not help him after performing Ki attack on him. Tessai then tells Torin to remove Daigo from being Kyoryu Red and chooses Utchy as the new leader. He states the reason why Daigo ca not win is because he is already strong and does not have a weakness, which is important to have so people can become stronger. When Daigo asks how he is supposed to find his weakness, Tessai simply replies that he does not know or care. Tessai departs, leaving Daigo with his injuries.

Tessai disguised as a fisherman

Daigo is hospitalized, but leaves even with his injuries. Tessai uses this chance to attack Daigo, telling Daigo to meet him in the Twilight Forest if he wants to redeem himself. Daigo accepts and goes to the forest. Tessai challenges Daigo using a multitude of illusions. Once Daigo and Tessai meet face to face, Tessai tells Daigo that he is not getting stronger because his fearlessness is holding him back. He makes a wager with Daigo; if he can even scratch his "notoriously hard head", then he will release Daigo from the illusions and let him resume his duty as a Kyoryuger. Tessai attacks Daigo with his "Furious Breakthrough", which knocks Daigo into the rivers. A fisherman convinces Daigo to fight by making Daigo realize how foolish his fearlessness truly is. Daigo and Tessai fight head on until it gets to the point where they use the same technique against each other, Daigo finally putting a small crack in Tessai's helmet. As per their agreement, Tessai releases Daigo.

When Kyoryuzin fights Debo Nagareboshi, the fisherman appears and reveals himself to be Tessai (sporting a bandage where Daigo's attack hit), and transforms into Kyoryu Gray. He then entrusts the team with Bunpachy, allowing them to form Kyoryuzin Kung-Fu. After Kyoryuzin defeats Nagareboshi, Tessai returns to China, where Ramirez was waiting for him. The two discuss the final two members of the Ten Great Zyudenryu; Plezuon and Bragigas. Tessai says while Plezuon will be returning very soon, Bragigas will be a challenge, and offers to help in the search. With that, the two depart to find the final Zyudenryu.

Armed On Midsummer

Tessai and Ramirez appeared before Daigo and Utsusemimaru while they were facing the revived spirits of the holiday Debo Monsters Debo Tanabanta and Debo Tangosekku, who were both possessing Nobuharu. Explaining that spirits are drawn to the Golden Land at this time as summer is the season of ghosts, Tessai and Ramirez proceeded to punch the Debo Monster spirits out of Kyoryu Blue while revealing that the spirits of the Dinosaurs were here as well. The Dinosaur spirits gave Daigo and Utsusemimaru their power which manifested as Spirit Ranger versions of the Plezuon and Pteragordon Zyudenchi respectively, giving them special Armed On forms which allowed them to destroy the spirit Debo Monsters.

He later arrive, along with Ramirez as they hear from the Kyoryugers about Torin's death. However, he reveals to them that they can revive him by gathering the Lost Stone that Daigo and Ian have. But Endolf and Zorima attacks them as he, Ramirez and Yayoi distract him giving the Kyoryugers a chance to gather the stones. While fighting, Torin appears and helps them as Kyoryu Red fights Endolf with his new abilities. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 29: Great Clash! Carnival Dances

Reviving Bragigas

Later, he and Ramirez inform the Kyoryugers about the location of the last Lost Stone, which would be in Hell. They then arrive at Lake Madō, but the Debo Monster Debo Tairyon appears to stop them from getting the last stone. While fighting, he notice Dantetsu is retrieving the stone as a result the lake soaked up, revealing Bragigas. After gathering all the stones, Bragigas started to be awakened, but Debo Tairyon tries to stop the Zyudenryu. After the Kyoryugers defeat Debo Tairyon, they teleported out from Bragigas as he tells them to let Torin handle the rest. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 34: Resurrection! Bragigas Appears! While walking, Tessai and Ramirez notice Torin was there, but then was attacked by him, which reveals to be Mad Torin. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 35: Super Awesome! Gigant Kyoryuzin! They got defeated by him as they need to replenish their spirit. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 36: Giga Gaburincho! The Silver Miracle

Finding his descendant

While replenishing his spirit, he found the author of Love be Ball Touchdown, Shinya Tsukouchi, whom he deduced was his descendant, going by their similar physical appearance. Tessai became upset with him due to him asking Amy to pose as Yuu Aoyagi (Shinya's pen name) to visit a sick fan (who, unbeknownst to any of them, turns out to be Luckyuro), thinking he was not being honest to his fan. Tessai later appears to Shinya posing as a ghost, coercing him to visit his fan. While Shinya is on his way, he sees Beautiful Zoreamer attack a woman and steps in to save her as Tessai, convinced that his descendant's heart is in the right place, manages to regain his Spirit Power.

10 Kyoryugers Unite

After regaining his spirit power, he help Torin, along with Ramirez fighting an army of Zorima. After taking out Zorima, they later join with the Kyoryugers to restore Mikoto back to normal. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 39: Full Array! The Ten Great Kyoryu Powers


During Christmas, he joins the Kyoryuger to fight the imit Deboth in Hawaii along with Ramirez and Yayoi. Having a hard time fighting Deboth, Bunpachy arrives to help them as they manage to finish off the fake Deboth. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 41: Yanasanta! Deboth’s World War They then arrive where the other Kyoryugers are and finish off Debo Yanasanta. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 42: Wonderful! Christmas of Justice

Final Battle

Before the final battle begins, Tessai found Shinya as his replacement to be Kyoryu Gray before he and Ramirez helps Torin dealing with the Debo Monsters in hell. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 47: The Great Counterattack! The Greatest Final Brave

While fighting the monsters, Chaos appears in hell, but Candelilla and Luckyuro also arrive as they finish Chaos off together as a result destroying the Land of Darkness. Sometimes after Deboth is defeated, the Zyudenryu returns to Earth as Daigo reveals to be alive from the destruction as he, along with Ramirez and Torin watches the Kyoryugers before they vanish.
