"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[1]) and is the first female leader of a Sentai.

Biography

Kakuranger

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'.

Super Sentai World

Legend War

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. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 45: The Confused Ninja

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. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates

Super Hero Taisen

The Kakurangers, alongside the Carrangers, Zyurangers, Dairangers and Ohrangers, emerge through a dimensional wall.

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. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen

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.

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.

Personality

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.

Mobilates' Gokai Change announcement[src]

The NinjaWhite Ranger Key (ニンジャホワイトレンジャーキー Ninja Howaito Renjā Kī) is Tsuruhime's personal Ranger Key and what became of her powers after she 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 NinjaWhite Ranger Key was mainly used by Ahim de Famille (Gokai Pink), who used it to fight as NinjaWhite. The key was also used by Luka Millfy (Gokai Yellow) in a commercial for Super Sentai Battle: Dice-O.

The Kakuranger 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. The Kakuranger keys were defeated by Gokai Green. 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. Tsuruhime received her key and became NinjaWhite once more. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates
