"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. Brave 11: Utchi! How Cool

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. 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. Brave 8: Where Are We? Break Through the Labyrinth After a heated battle, Kyoryu Red breaks Dogold's mask, revealing the face of Utsusemimaru. 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. 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. 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. Brave 47: The Great Counterattack! The Greatest Final Brave He was later revived by his teammates' melody.

ToQger vs. Kyoryuger

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. Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Chou Super Hero Taisen


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. Brave 11: Utchi! How CoolBrave 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. Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger: It's Here!

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.

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


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).


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.


  • Utsusemimaru previously had the earliest debut of a Sixth Ranger, having first appeared in the 9th episode of Kyoryuger. Usually, the Sixth Ranger debuts around episodes 17-18, or the late 20's at the latest. Kyoryu Gold takes this milestone from the Go-On Wings duo, the only other Sixth Ranger(s) who have debuted before episode 17, who first appeared in GP 16 of Engine Sentai Go-Onger.
    • He also had the earliest debut of a Gold Ranger, beating Beet Buster (who first appeared in Mission 14) by five episodes.
  • Utsusemimaru is the first male Sentai Ranger in a dinosaur-themed team to have a Pteranodon motif.
    • He is also the first Gold Ranger to be on a dinosaur-themed Sentai.
  • Utsusmimaru is the opposite of the other three dinosaur themed Sixth Rangers (Burai, Naoto, and Mikoto), in that he was a willing and pleasant ally to the other Sentai Rangers, rather than being against or antagonistic to them.
    • His "death" and "revival" breaks the tradition of the dinosaur-themed Sixth Rangers dying at the end of their series.
      • In some ways, Torin fulfilled the condition of the dinosaur-themed team having a team member die.
  • While not the first gold samurai-themed Ranger production-wise, Utsusemimaru became active at the same time as a samurai Sentai team who would have a gold centuries later.
    • If one viewed all the Super Sentai teams as occurring in one world, then Utsusemimaru predated Genta as a Gold samurai ranger.
      • Additionally, both Genta and Utsusemiaru are normally unable to use their team's upgraded forms for one reason or another (Utsusemimaru can't Armed On because his Gabrichanger can only read one Battery at a time, Genta can't use the Inromaru because it's not compatible with his Sakanamaru) but are later able to do so under special circumstances (Genta via the Super Change Gosei Card in Tensou Sentai Goseiger vs. Shinkenger, Utsusemimaru by using a special Pteragordon Zyudenchi in the Special DVD.
  • Utsusemimaru is the only Sixth Ranger from a dinosaur-themed Sentai series to not be evil when he first appears, as he was trapped inside Dogold and never acted on his own accord in terms of fighting against his fellow Kyoryugers.
  • Utsusemimaru is similar to Tsukumaro "Shirogane" Ogami (GaoSilver) from Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger. Both are Sixth Rangers with metallic suit colors, both were members of the team's previous incarnation from ancient times, and both were trapped inside villains who used their robos, and both robos had an 'evil' face that switched to a 'good' face once freed.
    • However, Utsusemimaru is different from Shirogane as Utsusemimaru is friendlier and sociable to his friends than what Shirogane would ever be.
      • Also while Rouki was essentially destroyed after Tsukumaro freed himself, only appearing several times later, Dogold still stayed the main villain after Utsusemimaru freed himself.
  • Utsusemimaru is also similar to Asuka (AbareBlack) of Bakuryuu Sentai Abaranger, as Asuka was also in a dinosaur sentai and possessed by an evil cursed armor and forced to fight against his teammates before being freed. The only difference is Asuka was originally a member of the Abarangers before being possessed by the armor instead of officially joining the team afterward.
    • They both specialize in swordsmanship and have similar personalities, but are also at times naive due to their new surroundings, as Asuka originally came from the alternate dimension Dino Earth, while Utsusemimaru was originally from Sengoku-era Japan.
    • They both start their own families, though, in Utsusemimaru's case, only his descendant Uppy was ever seen.
    • Both were thought to have been killed in their series, but ultimately survived.
    • Incidentally, Asuka's name, much like Utsusemimaru's background, is also a reference to Japan's past, as he was named after Japan's Asuka-era.
  • The Shinkengers were in existence around Utsusemimaru's time. Whether or not he and the Shinkengers of the past have met is not noted.
    • He did demonstrate similar attitudes to the Shinkengers, initially referring to King as "Lord", due to his resemblance to his lord Iwaisumimonosuke, as well as the other Kyoryugers as Daigo's "vassals". This was the official hierarchy in Shinkenger, Shinken Red was the Lord of the Shiba Clan and the other Shinkengers were his or her vassals.
  • Utsusemimaru is the only Kyoryuger that is affiliated with a classical element; in this case, lightning.
    • He is also the first Sentai Ranger to be affiliated with the lightning element since Tsubasa Ozu of Magiranger.
      • He is also the first Gold Ranger to be affiliated with lightning.
    • Like Tsubasa, Utsusemimaru also shares his element with a major villain of his series. Tsubasa shared the lightning element with Meemy (who was the fallen Heavenly Saint once known as Raigel) and Utsusemimaru shared his element with Dogold.
  • Like Ramirez and Tessai, Utsusemimaru existed long before the current Kyoryugers were born. It is possible that if he had not been possessed by Dogold and then frozen, he would have become a Spirit Ranger like them.
  • Ever since his revival, Utsusemimaru's favorite food is ice cream, introduced by Amy Yuuzuki.
  • Utsusemimaru's Warring States origins foreshadows Kamen Rider GaimIcon-crosswiki.png, Kyoryuger's second Super Hero Time partner, whose protagonistIcon-crosswiki.png has a similar Warring States Era motif.
  • Utsusemimaru is the first Sixth Ranger to be considered as a member of the core team, instead of being separate from the others.
