"Elephant Ranger!"
―Elephant Ranger's roll call[src]

Tusk (タスク Tasuku) is an elephant Zyuman from Zyuland who, using the transformed King's Credential he was entrusted with, became Zyuoh Elephant (ジュウオウエレファント Jūō Erefanto), the Green Ranger of the Zyuohgers also known in Korean dub as Elephant Ranger in Power Rangers Animal Force.

Tusk's father reads him a story about an elephant in a Zyuland forest.

As a child, Tusk grew a love for reading books thanks to his father, who would read stories to the young Tusk. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 12: The Short-Nose Elephant

Guarding the Link Cube

Along with Sela, Leo, and Amu, Tusk was assigned as a guardian to the Link Cube, which had been left dormant following the taking of one of the six King's Credentials. As such, Tusk was entrusted with one of the King's Credentials. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 1: The Exciting Animal Land

Tusk grew frustrated with Leo and Amu, who he found to be complacent in their task of guarding the Link Cube, taking issue with Leo's habit of staying up late which would result in him being tired while on duty, and Amu's practice of decorating her guardian's spear with ribbons to make it look cute, leading him to harshly scold them both. Tusk was consoled by Sela, who suggested that while he may be right, there may a better way of getting his point across. Tusk understood Sela's sentiment, but would find executing it easier said than done. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Ep. 21: Prison Break

Zyuhger Returns

Tusk was in the library when he received his invitation to the Monarch of the World Tournament, having committed to finishing every book in there before doing any other activities. He chooses to chaperone Peruru to the tournament along with Amu but not to participate. While Leo and Sela are recovering, Tusk learns from Yamato about the underground casino and the true identity of Pocane da Niro as a Deathgalien. He joins Yamato and Amu in an undercover sting at the casino, using his wits to win many rounds of Mahjong in an effort to empty the casino of all money. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger Returns: Life Received!

Zyuoh Elephant appears with his team among all Sentai in the mobile game Super Sentai Legend Wars.


Tusk is an elephant Zyuman and the most intelligent of the four Zyumans that traveled to the Human World. Though he seems like the insensitive, unapproachable-type, he's actually extremely kind. In addition, he has a sharp sense of smell. When something interests him, Tusk would openly show his interest in them. He also likes to learn anything he didn't know or see before like human knowledge, Zyuoh The Light, Ninjutsu and magic.

Powers and Abilities

Tusk uses his nose to trace Leo's scent via his sock, much to his discomfort.

Tusk uses his snout to catch the shutdown switch for Ginis' dome.

  • Zyuman Power (ジューマンパワー Jūman Pawā): The natural energy of individual Zyumen, they can bestow this energy upon other lifeforms to heal them via a King's Credential, granting the potential to unlock Zyuman powers as a side-effect in humans. However, this would come at the cost of the Zyuman's life force, thus shortening their lifespan. The process is also evidently irreversible.
  • Disguise: After being stranded in the human world, Tusk is granted his own human form by his King's Credential which protects his identity as Zyuman. Following this, Tusk can change from Zyuman to human and back at will. However, his disguise bears one exposing flaw in that he retains his elephant tail.
  • Sixth Sense: As a Zyuman guardian, Tusk can sense malicious presences such as the Deathgalien which are signaled by his tail standing erect.
  • Hyperosmia: As an elephant Zyuman, Tusk possesses an intensely strong sense of smell which he can use to track others. He retains his sense in his human form. However, this means he is easily overwhelmed by items with a strong odor, such as nattō (the stench of which is enough to temporarily cancel his human disguise).
  • Prehensile Snout: In his Zyuman form, Tusk can use his trunk as a grasping tool. The trunk can also stretch beyond its usual length to grab items that would normally be out of reach.
  • Earth's Energy: As a defender of all living organisms on Earth, Tusk was bestowed with the Earth's Energy, which not only restored his damaged Zyuoh Changer, but also granted him superpowers, like:
    • Superhuman Strength: Even in their civilian form, the Zyuohgers together were able to punch back Shin Ginis.

  • Zyuoh Slash (ジュウオウスラッシュ Jūō Surashhu): After pressing the trigger on the Zyuoh Buster to charge up its energy, Zyuoh Elephant and the other Zyuohgers transform into a giant claw that slashes the opponent.
  • Zyuoh Shoot (ジュウオウシュート Jūō Shūto): After pressing the trigger on the Zyuoh Buster to charge up its energy, Zyuoh Elephant shoots a spinning cube shaped energy blast, similar to the Zyuoh Buster's normal projectile but larger and more solid.
His strength in this form is also enhanced to the point where his bare strikes forms small shockwaves.

Instinct Awakened Mode

In his Instinct Awakened (野性解放 Yasei Kaihō) form, Zyuoh Elephant's boots transform into elephant hooves that can create earthquakes by stomping the ground or shockwaves that send stone debris flying at the enemy.

Zyuoh Elephant, along with the other Zyuohgers in their Instinct Awakened forms, is able to channel his powers along with Zyuoh Gorilla's power into a gigantic fist that Zyuoh Gorilla can use to smash down onto the enemy in his Gorilla Super Punch (ゴリラスーパーパンチ Gorira Sūpā Panchi) attack.

Under Yakumo Katou's magic effect, Tusk was transformed into a mini version of OtomoNin Paonmaru (オトモ忍パオンマル Otomo Nin Paonmaru, lit. "Companion Ninja Paon Circle"), which can be riden by Yakumo to charge at the opponent.

This form is exclusive to Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger vs. Ninninger: Message from the Future from Super Sentai.
