The DynaBlue Ranger Key (ダイナブルーレンジャーキー Daina Burū Renjā Kī) is Yousuke Shima's personal Ranger Key and what became of his powers after he along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.

- When the Gokaigers became the Dynamen while fighting a Zangyack force led by Insarn and Barizorg.
- When the Gokaigers became the Dynamen in order to use the New Super Dynamite attack against Action Commander Shieldon in a vein attempt to penetrate his shield.
