- "NinjaWhite! Tsuruhime!"
- ―NinjaWhite's roll call[src]
Tsuruhime (鶴姫 Tsuruhime) is NinjaWhite (ニンジャホワイト Ninja Howaito), leader of the Kakurangers. She is 15 years old (turns 16 in episode 23 and is 33 by Gokaiger and 43 in Zenkaiger) and is the first female leader of a Sentai.
The twenty-fourth protector of the Seal Door, which held the Youkai and is more knowledgeable of the Youkai and their ancestors than her other team members. Tsuruhime is a strong girl who is looking for her missing father, Hakumenrou. Despite not being the Red Ranger, she is the real leader of Kakuranger because of her greater leadership skills than Sasuke. Despite frequent scoldings, Tsuruhime seems to gain respect for Sasuke as the series progresses. Before becoming a Kakuranger, she once fought alongside two other girls, Yukiyo & Tsukiyo, as one of the 'Punishment Sailor Sisters'.

Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai
NinjaWhite is among the Sentai warriors seen in clips when Miku Imamura (MegaPink) lectured Sae Taiga (GaoWhite) about the past female Super Sentai warriors and their shared mastery of disguise and habit of changing their clothing in the blink of an eye, something that Sae had never done before.
Years later, Tsuruhime fought alongside not only her own team, but every single Sentai Ranger in existance, 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. The NinjaWhite powers are later used by Ahim de Famille via the Ranger Keys.
The Confused Ninja
Tsuruhime, now in her thirties, reappears watching the GokaiGalleon sail over the city. She decides that her earlier plan of having the Gokaigers defend Earth by themselves is no longer necessary. Impressed that the Gokaigers have found Ninjaman, she leaves him to watch over them instead, also leaving it up to him whether to give the Greater Power of the Kakurangers to them.
Farewell Space Pirates
After the Zangyack's final defeat, Marvelous returned the Ranger keys to their original owners. It is assumed Tsuruhime, Sasuke and their teammates have their powers once again and will work alongside Ninjaman to cut down evil in the shadows once more.
Super Hero Taisen
Tsuruhime, alongside her team (bar Ninjaman), 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, she is seen fighting Gormin Sailors.
Zyuohger vs. Ninninger
NinjaWhite appeared with her team among the first 38 Super Sentai whom collectively empowered Wild Tousai Shuriken King in its fight against the titanic Gillmarda, granting the Ninningers and Zyuohgers the power to perform the Zyuoh Ninnin Super Sentai Burst which destroyed Gillmarda with the combined power of all 40 Super Sentai.
Super Sentai Strongest Battle
Battle2: The Secretive Armor of Mystery
Tsuruhime joined the Super Sentai Strongest Battle as a member of Leader Team, where she partnered alongside OhRed and fought against RyuuRanger and Red Mask of Martial Artist Team in the third round of the competition. When the match was interrupted by Gaisoulg, none of the four Rangers present were able to defeat him. During the fight, RyuuRanger was knocked into the Moebius gem, indirectly winning the round for his team.
Final Kai! White Counterattack ! Zenkaigers' Complete Recovery!!
Tsuruhime appeared in a vision alongside Big One, Shishi Red Orion, Battle Japan, BoukenRed, Red Falcon and Patren 1gou to reassure Kaito Goshikida that a Sentai's Red wasn't always the leader of the team.
Out of all 5 Kakurangers, Tsuruhime was the only one to take her duties as a Kakuranger seriously when the group had finally come together. By far the most mature of the team, she was often forced to reign in the antics of her fellow ninja, which was often met with great frustration and anger. As the group grew closer as a team, Tsuruhime grew to treasure her friends. She most often found herself working alongside Sasuke.

This key along with the majority of the Ranger Keys were collected by the Red Pirates and later used by the Gokaigers.
