"Number One at escaping! Inu Brother![1]"
―Roll Call[src]

Tsubasa Inuzuka (犬塚 翼 Inudzuka Tsubasa) is Inu Brother (イヌブラザー InuBurazā), the Black Ranger of the Donbrothers.[2]

Tsubasa is 24 years old at the beginning of Donbrothers.[3] His birthdate is April 3rd, 1997.[4]

History

One year ago, Tsubasa was an actor in a theatre troupe with Natsumi and after a big performance, the group went on a vacation retreat to a cabin in the woods. They were attacked by the Juto, who manipulated paper cranes to enter the mouths of the troupe members with the exception of Tsubasa who woke up and crushed his before it could enter his mouth.

He witnessed the paper crane entering Natsumi’s mouth and tried to wake her up, only for her body to become possessed. A large dark shadow appears and says that the human female is “compatible”, taking Natsumi away by sucking her into a portal. She regains consciousness briefly, pleading for Tsubasa to save her as he tries to grab her hand as she falls into the void. The large shadow binds Tsubasa in his arms to prevent a rescue, making a deal with him, if he keeps quiet about the events that transpired here for one year then he will be able to see Natsumi again. The shadow vanishes, Tsubasa was knocked out and the rest of his theater troupe are still comatose due to ingesting the paper cranes. Unable to explain the situation, Tsubasa was suspected of being behind the troupe’s current medical condition and the disappearance of Natsumi. Ever since then, he is hunted by the police.Tvicon.png TV STORY-Don 17: Light and Tsubasa He revealed, however, that if he managed to avoid the police for one year, he could take his girlfriend Natsumi back.

Personality

Tsubasa is egotistical, snarky and distrustful of others, which results in those who might meet him to dislike him. [3] Ironically, he hates dogs despite his transformation turning him into one, much to his annoyance.

Despite his negative traits, Tsubasa has shown that there is a softer side to him, as when Taro, Tsuyoshi, Shinichi and Haruka threw a improvised birthday party for him upon learning it was his birthday, giving out cake and singing to him, he was moved to tears by this act of kindness. He later tries to protect them from Keisatsuki when he attacked by drawing him away from the group.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • Tsubasa Inuzuka is portrayed by Totaro (柊太朗 Tōtarou).[2] As Inu Brother, his suit/motion capture actor is Kazuya Okada (岡田 和也 Okada Kazuya).[5]

Design

  • InuBrother features a super-deformed body design, with a small torso and skinny limbs alongside disproportionately large hands and feet, and an oversized helmet with dog stylings. Like the other Donbrothers, his visor is styled after sunglasses.

Etymology

  • His last name contains the kanji for "dog" ( Inu).

Notes

  • Inu Brother is based on the dog from the Momotaro legend, who joined the titular hero in his quest to defeat the Oni upon being offered rice cakes. The various versions of the story interpret the dog differently in its size and which of the Japanese regional canine breeds it is. Some tales describe the dog as “big as a colt”, while others depict it as a Shiba Inu or a white medium sized dog such as a Shikoku Inu or Kishu Inu.

  • Like Kiji Brother, Inu Brother's design and diminutive stature means that he exclusively appears rendered in CGI when present in full body shots, using isolated costume parts in extreme closeup shots. Despite this, traditionally-made suits would later be made for stage shows.[6]
