Sentai Expert Swordsmen Who Weren't Red Rangers

Super Sentai had a couple of swordsmen who weren't red rangers. While it's common to typecast Super Sentai reds as the swordsmen but did you know it wasn't always like that? Let's take a look at them.


Ryuu Higashi/Dia Jack pretty caught me off guard when I started learning about the existence of more pre-Zyuranger Super Sentai. I haven't seen JAKQ to comment on this one.


Kyousuke Shida/Battle France used a rapier in battle. Battle Japan used a spear instead. I also got caught off-guard with this one since I was too used to seeing reds as champion swordsmen but it didn't always start out that way. Watching a few episodes of Battle Fever J, I'll admit I'd want to take fencing lessons from him.


Akira/Blue Mask didn't use another sword in battle but he was practicing Chinese fencing so he counts.


Rei Tachibana/Dyna Pink was the first pink ranger to master the art of fencing.


Ryuta Nanbara/Blue Three had shown some amazing sword skills every time he's on the spotlight. His first amazing sword skills were shpwn during his solo adventure. He had shown several nimble ways to attack using his sword with literally electrifying sword skills.


Kasumi Hoshikawa/Five Pink used her Pink Sword Five in battle. I thought of her mastery of fencing was probably a throwback to Rei/Dyna Pink.


Gai Yuki/Black Condor was also another warrior that was a real expert in the sword. He rivaled Ryu not only for Kaori Rokumeikan's affections but also in the use of swords. Only if the rivalry of Ryu and Gai were a lot more focused on who was better. In Gokaiger episode 28, he really showed he wasn't to be messed with one more time before departing for the afterlife.


Kou/Kibaranger may be a nine year old kid but somehow, he does deserve to be part of this list huh?


Yuusaku Hayakawa/Mega Silver mastered the uses of the Silver Blazer.


The original Bullblack and Hyuga/Bullblack II were both sword wielders.


Yuuri/Time Pink is one badass pink with her swords.


Naoto Takizawa/Time Fire's gun could also be used as a sword.


Gaku Washio/Gao Yellow was another Gaku swordsman but wore yellow instead of red like Gaku Hoshikawa/Five Red. While there was a LOOOOOONG like of red ranger swordsmen from VulEagle II (thanks to Shogo for the information) and most Super Sentai reds were affiliated as swordsmen of the group, but this one was yellow and using a sword. Another typecast breaker anyone and I thought he's pretty cool actually. I understand why Sentai Bandicoot loves this guy.


Asuka/Abare Black uses some saber techniques for a black ranger. Personally, he's been my favorite Abaranger maybe because he shares some traits with Ryu Tendo/Red Hawk. I'll admit I was a Tommy Oliver fan as a kid, became a Burai/Dragon Ranger fan as an adult though me liking him has had nothing to do with Tommy.


Doggie Druger/Dekamaster was truly a master of the sword. The D-Vega Sword could only be wielded properly by a master swordsman.


Genta Umemori/Shinken Gold mastered his own sword known as the Sakamaru.


Gosei Knight as an extra hero was also a swordsman.


Joe Gibken/Gokai Blue stood up in terms of sword skills with all the Gokaigers. He has exhibited various sword skill moves even using the swords of the others. He had a focus episode where he learned some tricks from Kaoru/Princess Shinken Red and he has exhibited more sword-fighting than the rest of his comrades.


Souji Rippukan/Kyoryu Green is the master of Japanese swordsman fighting among his comrades. The other Kyoryugers also used a sword but only he really stood out. I'm just glad that even with their obviously plastic weapons, he was still able to do some badass moves with it like Red Mask and Red Falcon did with their obviously retractable plastic swords.


If Souji wasn't enough, Utsusemiraru who existed as a samurai from 500 years ago (shades of Gaoranger) appeared as the new master swordsman of the Kyoryugers.


Torin as Kyoryu Silver also used a sword.

  4. Also Burai was a master swordsman outside of the Zyusoken dagger as he wielded the Hellfriede blade.

    Kou aka Kiba Ranger swung the Bayako Shin Ken(broad sword) like Lau Kar Leung
    Kurokishis Hyuga is a born swordsman as he is meant to be Ginga Red.
    Makoto aka Abare Killer was a saber master.
