|This article is about a/an villain turned ally in Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger.|
Like the other Druidon generals, Wiserue was presumably created at some point 65 million years ago by Eras. The Druidon Tribe was originally created by Eras to eradicate the rogue Ryusoul Tribe, whose infighting and wars were damaging the planet, but Wiserue and the other Druidon generals instead attempted to conquer the Earth themselves. Their plan of conquest was interrupted by an approaching meteorite, forcing the entire Druidon Tribe to leave the Earth and drift into space as the meteor struck the Earth and wiped out the dinosaurs.
Arrival to Earth
Prior to arriving on Earth, Wiserue traveled around the galaxy brainwashing people to be his slaves. This included Fita, a princess from the planet Cepeus, who became the host of the Cockatrice Minosaur.
Wiserue eventually arrived on Earth and took charge of the Druidons' Earth invasion after Tankjoh was killed in battle against the Ryusoulgers. For his first scheme, Wiserue had children rounded up and brainwashed so he could use them as shields against the Ryusoulgers. However, his plan was foiled when Fita's sister Cardena used her singing to free the children from Wiserue's hypnosis.
Later, Wiserue disguised himself as Fita in order to infiltrate the Ryusoulgers, holding the real Fita hostage in order to blackmail Cardena into going along with the scheme. Wiserue had Cardena tell the Ryusoulgers of a mysterious energy source that could help them defeat the Druidon Tribe if they fed it to their Kishiryu, which in actuality would cause their Kishiryu to explode. When they went to go retrieve the source, Wiserue appeared with a squad of Drunn Soldiers to ambush them. The Ryusoulgers fought off the Druidons and obtained the energy source, but when they defeated Wiserue they discovered he was really an illusion over a normal Drunn Soldier.
The Ryusoulgers later discovered the truth about Fita after Ui left her cellphone to record Wiserue and Cardena talking. Based on this information, the Ryusoulgers managed to foil Wiserue's plan by feeding the energy source to a duplicate of Tyramigo. The Ryusoulgers then form KishiRyuOh and free Fita from the Cerberus Minosaur before destroying it. His plan having been outmaneuvered, Wiserue congratulates the Ryusoulgers for a "well-played" move and remarks that they will make "a devil of a show".
For Wiserue's next plan, he disguises himself as the host of a treasure hunt and traps all of the treasure hunt's guests (which include the Ryusoulgers) inside the Mimic Minosaur, where they will be given everything they want until they fall into despair and have their emotions drained to fuel it. However, the Ryusoulgers uncover the truth about the "Wonder Land" they were sent to and escape by opening the keyhole inside the box Minosaur. As the Ryusoulgers free themselves, Wiserue summons a portal and escapes through it to plot his next scheme.
Wiserue later approached Kleon to observe his Minosaur, noting that the invincible Minosaur he created was interesting and deciding to add his own flavor to it. Wiserue disguised himself as Kawamura, a friend of Kenta Mori, the host of the Minosaur. As Mori was feeling guilt over his friend's hand being broken, "Kawamura" blamed Mori for it in order to drive Mori to the point of suicide so his negative emotions would further power up the Minosaur. After the Minosaur grew giant, Wiserue revealed his disguise and mocked Asuna for trying to save Mori. After pulling Mori up from a ledge, Asuna turned her anger towards Wiserue, though the magician telelported away before she could land a hit on him.
Having discovered a new Kishiryu named Dimevolcano, Wiserue watched from a distance as it breathed fire on Kureon for not being able to answer its questions. Wiserue later approached the monster himself, accompanied by Kleon and the Shen Minosaur. When the Kishiryu instructed him to say "knee" ten times, Wiserue directed Kleon to answer the question. However, they were left confused by Dimevolcano's followup question "and then?" and had fire breathed on them for not answering it. However, Wiserue later discovered that Dimevolcano had formed a bond with a hospitalized boy named Haruto and, disguising himself as the boy's mother, kidnapped him and threatened to kill him unless Dimevolcano served the Druidon Tribe. However, Koh was able to answer Dimevolcano's question correctly and recruited the Kishiryu first before going to save Haruto as Dimevolcano breathed fire on Wiserue.
Wiserue later met with Kleon, only for their meeting to be interrupted by RyusoulBlack and RyusoulGreen. After a brief fight, Wiserue teleported away to enact his newest scheme. As the Shen Minosaur grew giant and the Ryusoulgers sent their Kishiryu to go and fight it, Wiserue had the Minosaur project an image of a female Kishiryu in order to arouse Dimevolcano, promising to give Dimevolcano the Kishiryu's number if he defected to their side. However, RyusoulGreen uses the Spin Soul to blow away the smoke, causing Dimevolcano to see the illusion for what it really is. RyusoulRed then combines Tyramigo with Dimevolcano to take on the Shen Minosaur but Wiserue has the Minosaur project illusions of Koh's friends, making him reluctant to attack it. However, after the illusion shifts to Melt, Koh destroys it.
Later, at night, Wiserue and Kleon are approached by Gaisoulg, who reveals he was the one who set Dimevolcano free and mocks Wiserue for letting it fall into the Ryusoulgers' hands. Wiserue retorts that Gaisorg could have gotten rid of the Ryusoulgers himself, though Gaisorg states that wouldn't have been fun. Gaisorg then states he'll inform Wiserue if he finds anything interesting before heading off.
At the suggestion of Kleon, Wiserue and Kleon began searching for a new hideout since their last one was discovered by the Ryusoulgers. As Kureon was showing Wiserue an abandoned parking garage, Wiserue asked if it had a disco ball for when he felt like dancing, but Kleon said there wasn't one. Kleon was then zapped by the Mummy Minosaur's truth beam, causing him to say he hated dancing, much to the disgust of Wiserue.
Later, as Wiserue and Kleon were decorating their base, they were approached by Gachireus. Wiserue angrily demanded to know what he was doing at their base, but Gachireus ignored the question and sternly asked what they were doing. Kleon answered that they were just decorating their war room, to which Gachireus responded that they should be focusing their efforts on destroying the Ryusoul Tribe. Angry that Gachireus was giving him commands, Wiserue fired his staff at Gachireus but the Rook-themed general simply shrugged off his attack. Wiserue then asked why he didn't dodge, to which Gachireus questioned why he would dodge a harmless attack. Annoyed that their discussion was going in circles, Wiserue departed, leaving Gachireus in charge of the invasion.
Wiserue later returned after Gachireus was destroyed and began to plan a scheme to kidnap MosaRex, Wiserue disguised himself as a woman and told Canalo how to create one so he could please a boy he met. When Canalo summoned MosaRex to make a rainbow, Wiserue dropped his disguise and had the Ghost Ship Minosaur capture MosaRex in a net before departing with his trapped Kishiryu. Wiserue then attempted to hypnotize MosaRex into serving the Druidon Tribe, but MosaRex resisted it due to his bond with Canalo. After Dimevolcano burned the net holding MosaRex off, the two attacked Wiserue, causing him to swiftly retreat through a portal.
For their next Minosaur, Wiserue and Kleon went to a school that Misako Iimura taught at. As they were eating in class, they were approached by Misako, who thought they were wearing costumes. As she scolded them for not following the rules, Kleon shot his slime at her and created the Arachne Minosaur from her. Wiserue then let out a laugh, only to be sent to detention by the Minosaur for laughing in class. To avoid detection, Wiserue disguised himself as a schoolboy. He escaped detention along with the rest of the people sent there after the Minosaur was destroyed.
Kleon later created a Minosaur out of an artist, but was confused when it manifested as a sketchbook. Kleon showed it to Wiserue, who realized that the sketchbook could be used to create things in real life. Declaring he was invincible with the power of the sketchbook, Wiserue used it to create cages to trap all of the Ryusoulgers except for Towa. After the Minosaur grew giant, Wiserue used it to create a giant-sized version of himself. However, Towa managed to use the sketchbook to create keys to unlock all of the cages the Ryusoulgers were in. Now freed, the Ryusoulgers combined their Kishiryu to form KishiryuOh and destroyed Wiserue's giant doppelganger.
After Kleon began crying when Tankjoh was sent back to the world of the dead with the Necromancer Minosaur's destruction, Wiserue showed up and offered to loan him his handkerchief to cry into, letting Kleon keep it after it became covered in his slime.
After Kureon created the Dwarf Minosaur from Mao, the daughter of a karate dojo owner, Wiserue kidnapped and tied up Mao's father before disguising himself as him to send Mao further into despair so the Minosaur could grow giant.
When Kleon created the Grim Reaper Minosaur out of his friend Anikin by mistake, Wiserue schemed to use the Minosaur to steal the souls of everyone who had watched Kureon's video, but the plan was foiled when Kleon deleted the video out of spite for Wiserue insulting it and calling it trash repeatedly.
For their next Minosaur, Kleon created the Dodomeki Minosaur out of Chika Sudo, a constantly sad woman who longed for kindness. The Ryusoulgers came close to destroying the Minosaur, but were stopped when Gaisoulg appeared and blocked their attack before defeating them singlehandedly. Kleon then asked Wiserue if he had called on Gaisoulg but Wiserue denied having done so as Gaisoulg teleported away.
After the two Druidon generals retreated to the war room they set up, Kleon suggested to Wiserue that they torture Chika in order to make the Minosaur grow giant but Wiserue rebuffed him, stating that instead they should "entertain her into despair". When Kleon asked him to elaborate, Wiserue demonstrated how to insult her in order to make her more sad. The two then started cackling about their scheme, only to be interrupted when Gachireus showed up and revealed himself to be alive. As Kleon expressed confusion and Wiserue demanded to know where he'd been, Gachireus revealed that his soul had gone out into space after his body was destroyed, allowing him to regenerate. Wiserue then made fun of him for "running away" but Gachireus insisted it was a strategic withdrawal. Gachireus then revealed that someone else was targeting Earth and that he refused to allow that person to have it but didn't elaborate anymore, though Wiserue seemed to understand who he was referring to.
Wiserue later fought with Gachireus over who would get to use Kleon to create another Minosaur, only for Pricious to then arrive. While the two generals had their guard down, Pricious used her cards to capture their hearts, forcing them to submit to her.
Wiserue was later asked by Kleon why he was lounging around instead of following Pricious' orders like Gachireus, to which Wiserue noted that Gachireus was likely in the process of searching for the right opportunity to take back their hearts. Kleon then asked Wiserue if he was enjoying the thrill of it, which Wiserue affirmed.
However, Wiserue soon began to resent having his heart missing, as he could no longer feel its pulse pounding. After lamenting the loss of his heart to Kleon, the two came up with a scheme to retrieve the heart using the super fast Sylph Minosaur Kureon created. Wiserue and Kleon confronted Pricious on a rooftop and Wiserue ordered the Minosaur to grab back his heart. The Sylph Minosaur obeyed but Pricious tricked it into grabbing a blank card instead. Pricious then told Wiserue to defeat the Ryusoulgers if he really wanted his heart back. Wiserue then accompanied the Minosaur in an attack on the Ryusoulgers, angrily assaulting them as he blamed them for the loss of his heart. However, the Minosaur was destroyed by King KishiRyuOh and Wiserue retreated soon after.
Back at the Druidon war room, Wiserue speculated with Kleon on what Gachireus was doing at that moment and the two began to make fun of him, just as Gachireus walked in. Gachireus proposed that they work together in a plan to defeat the Ryusoulgers in order to "smash Pricious' smug face". Instead of answering Gachireus' request however, Wiserue got distracted when he realized Pricious' face had no apparent nose on it and began speculating where it may be. Later on, the two put their plan into action, to have Gachireus engage the Ryusoulgers while the Gnome Minosaur assaulted them with missiles from afar. On their first attempt, the Gnome Minosaur fired a barrage of missiles at the Ryusoulgers from underneath, prompting them to quickly retreat. To lure the Ryusoulgers out again, Wiserue kidnapped the Minosaur's host Kyoko Taniguchi and her son Ichiro and took them hostage in a warehouse. As Koh confronted him and questioned whether he was the one attacking them from afar, Wiserue revealed that it was actually a Minosaur attacking them from beneath the ground. Kleon then questioned Wiserue whether it was really a wise idea for them to reveal that information to the Ryusoulgers, causing Wiserue to realize his mistake. The two then made the Minosaur grow giant by psychologically tormenting Kyoko, only for it to be destroyed by the Ryusoulgers in King KishiryuOh.
As Christmas approached, Wiserue became jealous of the attention the Santa Clauses were receiving and began kidnapping them off the street for "showing [him] up". From the Santas he and a group of Drunn Soldiers had kidnapped, Kleon surveyed them to pick one out to be the host for his next Minosaur. The one he chose was a magician, leading to the creation of the magic-wielding Wizard Minosaur. While Kleon created his Minosaur, Wiserue proclaimed on a rooftop that the age of Santa was over before declaring that it would be "Merry Wiserue" from that point on. As Wiserue and Kleon were gloating on their scheme, Gachireus barged in and scolded Kureon for waging a war against Christmas and not the Ryusoulgers, ordering him to make Minosaurs from all of the hostages they had gathered. Gachireus was then interrupted himself by Pricious, who injured him as punishment for failing to defeat the Ryusoulgers and forced him to enter his regenerative cocoon.
As the Ryusoulger arrived to destroy the Minosaur and free Wiserue's hostages, Wiserue competed against the magician Santa to see who could do magic the best. After the Wizard summoned a red rose from thin air, Wiserue materialized two bouquets of blue roses from thin air, declaring himself to be more magnificent than the Magician and creating despair from the Magician to feed the Wizard Minosaur. However, Asuna and Tyramigo then barged in to free the Santas as the Wizard Minosaur was later destroyed by Canalo with the Ryusoul Calibur. As Wiserue was overpowered by Koh as Max Ryusoul Red, he realized he didn't have to fight at all and fled, leaving the Ryusoulgers to be faced by the fully recovered Gachireus.
Following Gachireus' demise, Wiserue scolded Pricious for acting "high and mighty" when they had just been beaten again by the Ryusoulgers. However, Pricious revealed to Wiserue that them being beaten was all part of her plan to make the Ryusoulgers feel reliant on their "great power" and that the drawing of the Ryusoul Calibur would lead to the reawakening of the Druidon's own "greater power", their master Eras. Hearing Eras' name gave Wiserue pause.
Later, Wiserue speculated in private what Pricious would do if Eras was revived only to be approached from behind by a mysterious figure, the Druidon general Saden. Turning around, Wiserue initially identified the figure as Uden but Saden corrected the mistake and reaffirmed that his superior Pricious was the one in charge. Later on, after Saden's attempt to steal the Ryusoul Calibur was foiled, Wiserue was approached and hugged by Kleon, who stated that the Ryusoulgers had saved him from Saden and that they could use the Ryusoulgers to take back Wiserue's heart.
Wiserue and Kleon later tricked a playwright named Tamada into drinking Kleon's slime under the promise they would help him write a hit play, causing the Phantom Minosaur to be born from him, which had the power to control anyone who went on the stage. The Druidons later lured the Ryusoulgers to the theater, where Wiserue teleported them inside in an audience full of people and put on a song and dance number with Melto and Towa as his backup dancers. After the first act is finished, Wiserue announces that the second act will be a reenactment of Romeo and Juliet and makes the Ryusoulgers take part in it, with Canalo and Asuna playing the parts of Romeo and Juliet respectively. While the two initially refuse to participate due to the two leads drinking poison at the end, they are forced to go along with it anyway due to the Phantom Minosaur's powers. As the play drags on, Wiserueorders Kleon to tear out all pages of the script before the play's ending so they can skip to the part where Romeo and Juliet die. However, Canalo manages to subvert Wiserue's scheme by swapping out the poison with Naohisa Tatsui's spicy energy drink. Once the play is over, Wiserue teleports all of the Ryusoulgers outside except for Ryusoul Red, who he decides to have a final battle with.
Dubbing it the "final showtime", Wiserue fights Ryusoul Red one-on-one and
is finally defeated when Ryusoul Red uses the power of Max Ryusoul against him, fatally wounding him. Right before falling to the ground, Wiserue hallucinates his victory and him being applauded by a cheering crowd for winning. Kleon then rushes to his defense, but Koh chooses to go join his friends rather than continue fighting. Wiserue then gets up and, after contemplating how he is no longer the best entertainer, dissipates away, leaving behind only his mantle and causing his mantle and Kleon to be teleported outside. The mantle then flies in the air and dissipates as well, leaving Kleon to cry over his "death" alone.
However, Kleon later came across Wiserue's intact heart card in Eras' tomb, which Pricious had presumably dropped, alluding that Wiserue may still be alive.
Wiserue was in fact, still alive, and was found by Kleon after he left during Eras' awakening. The two then discovered the truth about Eras, that she had created both the Ryusoul and Druidon Tribes and sought to destroy both of them for waging wars to dominate the planet, and went to warn the Ryusoulgers and other Druidons. Arriving in Eras' tomb, Wiserue interrupted the confrontation between the Ryusoulgers and Pricious. Before he could reveal his shocking deduction though, Kleon rushed in and exclaimed it to them instead, causing Wiserue to scold Kureon for taking his chance to reveal his discovery. Wiserue then approached Pricious and told him he would rather not lose any audience members before reaching out his hand to reconcile. To everyone's surprise, Pricious reached out his hand as well, but before he could grab Wiserue's, Eras shot out a beam to stab and kill Pricious, before absorbing him. Wiserue, Kleon and the Ryusoulgers then stood in shock as Eras transformed into a new form before blinding them all in a flash of light. Though Eras caused the Ryusoulgers and every human on Earth to fall asleep, Wiserue and Kleon somehow managed to stay awake or wake up (possibly due to them both being Druidons). Wiserue attempted to wake up the other humans so they could serve as an audience for him, only to attract the attention of Yabasword, who attempted to attack Wiserue for waking up. After Kleon woke up the Ryusoulgers, Wiserue reunited with them and explained what had happened, how Eras had caused everyone on Earth to fall asleep and was now planning to use their energy to remake the world, lamenting how he had lost his audience. After Kleon, Melt and Asuna broke free from Eras, Wiserue called Kleon over to him as the Ryusoulgers faced off against Eras.
After the Ryusoulgers destroyed Eras, Wiserue and Kleon reemerged. Wiserue asked Kleon how he was able to create Minosaurs and Kleon replied that he did not know, to which Wiserue concluded that Kleon must be an extraterrestrial supernatural alien, something similar to Eras, and told him that they should go visit his home planet. Pricious then reappeared, having been freed after Eras died. Attempting to finish his ambitions again, only for Kleon and Wiserue to grab him to drag him along on their visit to Kleon's homeworld.
Wiserue is the brains of the Druidon Tribe. He has an enormous ego and loves the spotlight, to the point anyone who he feels has more attention or rips him off drives him angry. In spite of his eccentricities, Wiserue is very calculating, manipulative, and dangerous, yet can also be respectful towards a challenge. He is also short-tempered, temperamental, backstabbing, hypocritical, a cheater, sore loser and mainly focuses on unfair play, with some of his approaches often seen as cowardly. Unlike Tankjoh or Gachireus, Wiserue's methods mainly focus around attention and psychological torture, while the other two focuses on physical pain.
Despite his inflated ego, he does seem to hold some respect for Kleon, and is the only general to actually be nice to him. One such moment was when Kleon was mourning for Tankjoh's third death, he understood why, allowed him to cry and even handed him a hankerchief.
After he lost his final battle, Wiserue admits defeat and honorably, give up his life in respect though this was later shown to be false as it is revealed that he is actually still alive.
Despite how Pricious held his heart hostage, Wiserue seemed to view him as a comrade and showed him compassion, as he held out his hand to him when he felt despaired after finding out the truth about how Eras viewed the Druidons.
