"The Thundering Brave, Kyoryu Gold has arrived!"
―Kyoryu Gold's roll call[src]

"Vanquishing evil in the name of heaven! Prepare for wildness!"
―Kyoryu Gold's pre-battle catchphrase[src]

Utsusemimaru (空蝉丸), nicknamed "Utchy" (ウッチー), is a Sengoku Period-era Samurai who was trapped in the sentient Raging Knight Dogold armor for 400 years. He assumes the role of Kyoryu Gold (キョウリュウゴールド Kyōryū Gōrudo) with his partner, the Zyudenryu Pteragordon.

Character History

400 Years Ago

During the Sengoku Period, Utsusemimaru had served under a lord named Moshinosuke Iwaizumi, who had made the future Kyoryuger a samurai despite his background as a commoner and a ronin. When the Deboss Army attacked Japan in an undisclosed time either before or after Utsusemimaru bested Zyudenryu Pteragordon, Torin had asked Moshinosuke Iwaizumi for Utsusemimaru's power to fend off the Deboth Army, which was granted.

During one fateful battle with the Deboth Army, Utsusemimaru saw a Debo Monster with a carp banner kidnap a child on the battlefield, to which Utsusemimaru had foiled. Undoing his transformation, he tried to stir the child, unknowing until the last second of the ingenious trap the Deboth Army had made for him, with the boy actually a Zorima in disguise about to cut him down. However, Moshinosuke Iwaizumi threw himself to take the blow meant for Utsusemimaru, grievously wounding the lord. Slaying the Zorima out of rage, a distraught Utsusemimaru watched on as Moshinosuke Iwaizumi passed away in his arms minutes later after the attack after leaving some final words.

Utsusemimaru mourns the death of Jurota.

Without their lord, Moshinosuke Iwaizumi's remaining forces were later killed off by the Deboth Army, including Utsusemimaru's human partner Jurota.

With Torin captured and about to be executed by Dogold, a vengeful Utsusemimaru changed into Kyoryu Gold and saved Torin's life. However, Dogold attempts to escape into a dimensional portal, and Utsusemimaru gives chase, only to be absorbed by the armor itself. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 9: Very Strong! Pteraiden-Oh.

Present Day

Utsusemimaru revealed but still under control by Dogold.

After the fateful day four centuries ago, Dogold returns, but not as Kyoryu Gold, which causes Torin to question what happened to Utsusemimaru. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 8: Where Are We? Break Through the Labyrinth After a heated battle, Kyoryu Red breaks Dogold's mask, revealing the face of Utsusemimaru. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 9: Very Strong! Pteraiden-Oh

Utsusemimaru returns and is about to transform into Kyoryu Gold for the first time in centuries.

With the quick thinking of Amy, Torin, and Ramirez, Utsusemimaru was able to escape from Dogold's armor and transforms into Kyoryu Gold, free from his centuries-old spell, and defeats the remaining Knights and the remaining Cabrima, showing the Kyoryugers why he is nicknamed the Thundering Brave (雷鳴の勇者 Raimei no Yūsha).

After the fight, the other Kyoryugers approach him and cancel their transformation, making Utsusemimaru remember his slain lord Moshinosuke Iwaizumi when he saw Daigo's face. Remembering his last words that his kindness would get him killed, Utsusemimaru had constructed a mask of cold aloofness and brushed off the Kyoryugers. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 10: Zandar! Gold Revives

Utsusemimaru still helped the team whenever he could, though he retained his coldness. But the continuation of the cold mask eventually made him feel exceptionally guilty and was soon discovered of this by Amy. After the Horned Brave shared an ice cream cone with him, the samurai confessed his past and why he created a mask of coldness. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 11: Utchi! How Cool

Utsusemimaru joined the other five Kyoryugers to get to Deboth but stopped to prevent Raging Knight Dogold and Resentful Knight Endolf from stopping the rest of the team. Utsusemimaru fought the two knights for a long time but was caught by Endolf. When he is seemingly about to be killed by Dogold, Endolf was slashed instead. Dogold and Utsusemimaru make a temporary alliance and when their attacks don't work, Dogold becomes the armor of Utsusemimaru and combines their attacks and defeats Endolf. After the battle with Endolf ends, Dogold challenges Utsusemimaru to a final battle with Dogold being truly destroyed by Utsusemimaru. He then afterward falls to the ground from being struck by Dogold. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 47: The Great Counterattack! The Greatest Final Brave He was later revived by his teammates' melody.

The Kyoryugers return to fight alongside the ToQgers in Ressha Sentai ToQger vs. Kyoryuger: The Movie. Along the way, Utchy is turned into a baby at the hands of Clock Shadow, having heard the Shadow Monster's song the longest, at the same time the five ToQgers are regressed to their childhood forms, forcing his successor Akira Nijino (ToQ 6gou) to take care of him.

Kyoryu Gold appeared with his team among the first 38 Super Sentai who 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.

Chou Super Hero Taisen

An iteration of Utsusemimaru appears in the game world created by Eight KirinoIcon-crosswiki.png, acting as a loyal servant to that world's counterpart of Hiiro KagamiIcon-crosswiki.png. This version of Utsusemimaru retains the original's personality. He assists the other superheroes in clearing the Chou Super Hero TaisenIcon-crosswiki.png game. Though he was slain by Shocker Leader IIIIcon-crosswiki.png, he respawned in the game world sometime later. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Chou Super Hero Taisen

Personality

While initially appearing to be cold and calm, Utsusemimaru is actually a very caring and comforting person.

Utsusemimaru is also rather humble, using the pronoun sessha (拙者 sessha, lit "one who is clumsy") as a personal pronoun.

While he is very out of place at times in the modern world, he does possess an understanding of how things work and is able to embrace new concepts such as when he was told about Christmas. Utchy was so excited as he never experienced the holiday in his time and wanted to enjoy his first Christmas. (as while Christmas was brought over in the mid-1500s to Japan, it was never fully embraced as a holiday until the early 20th century.)

Another thing about Utchy noted by both Amy and Debo Honenukky, the out-of-time samurai is quite bashful, being awkward around women. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 11: Utchi! How CoolTvicon.png TV STORY-Brave 33: Maximum! I Will Protect the Lady

Powers and Abilities

Utsusemimaru has demonstrated on numerous occasions that he is a versatile warrior who even excels his Kyoryuger comrades in their own areas of expertise. He has shown to be a better marksman than Ian, a better swordsman than Souji, a stronger kicker than Amy, and has even surpassed Nobuharu in feats of physical strength.

Regarding his other skills, Utsusemimaru has demonstrated the capacity to understand other languages, in particular, the English language; though limited to simple words such as "Perfect", "King", and the transformation words needed for the Gabrichanger.

Armed On (アームドオン Āmudo On) is Kyoryu Gold's extension form accessed by using a Spirit Ranger version of the Pteragordon Zyudenchi in his Gabrichanger, bypassing the usual method of inserting two Zyudenchi into the Gaburivolver (the Gabrichanger can only read one at a time). Sporting spiky gold armor across his right arm, Armed On gives Kyoryu Gold access to a stronger version of the Zandar Thunder, the Golder Zandar Thunder.

Raging Knight Dogold

While being possessed by the Raging Knight Dogold, Utsusemimaru is forced to wear Dogold's armor, and armed with Kenka Jōtō (喧嘩上刀 Quarrel On Blade) seven-branched sword.

During their final confrontation, Utsusuemimaru very briefly wore Dogold's armor once again in a temporary team-up against Resentful Knight Endolf. This time, however, he was not controlled but instead worked in conjunction with Dogold while wielding both his Zandar Thunder and Dogold's Kenka Jōtō, combining their techniques to destroy Endolf.

Transformation and Roll Call

Ranger Key

Kyoryu Gold Ranger Key

The Kyoryu Gold Ranger Key (キョウリュウゴールドレンジャーキー Kyōryū Gōrudo Renjā Kī) is a Kyoryuger Ranger Key released as part of a set of thirteen Kyoryuger Ranger Keys in Bandai Premium. It is unknown if it will appear in a future crossover, although Gai Ikari presumably borrowed it along with the other Kyoryuger powers for the Gokaiger's 40th-anniversary return. Of course, as with all Ranger Keys, should it exist, it would be able to transform one, i.e. Gokai Silver, into Kyoryu Gold.

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Utsusemimaru in intro.PNG

Utsusemimaru is portrayed by Atsushi Maruyama (丸山敦史 Māruyama Atsūshi). As a baby, he is portrayed by Nozomu Takahashi (高橋 望 Takahashi Nozomu). As Kyoryu Gold, his suit actor is Naoki Ofuji (大藤 直樹 Ōfuji Naoki).

Etymology

Utsusemimaru's name is the combination of utsui and omi, which means "reality" and "subject", or "vessel", respectively, and reflects off the fact that he is a samurai from the Sengoku Period. It also can mean utsu (hollow), and semi (cicada), which means the cast off shell of a cicada, possibly hinting at the fact that he was once Dogold's vessel, and cast him off to free his own will.

Notes

  • Utsusemimaru is the only Kyoryuger that is affiliated with a classical element; in this case, lightning.
