Sentai Jerk Rangers with a Heart of Gold

Here are some Sentai rangers I think are jerks with a heart of gold as follows:

Takeru/Red Mask may seem severe as a leader but he is a nice guy.

Guy Yuki/Black Condor is one. At first he seems to be a terrible guy and he was. He was plain stubborn and more hard-headed and recklessly fearless. However he also showed genuine concern when Ryu Tendo a man he disliked at first lost his edge. Liked how he matured in the series especially when he realized that he was needed more than ever when Ryu Tendo went insane for a time.

Kyousuke Jinnai/Red Racer shows his generous side as the series progresses.

Gaku Washio/Gao Yellow is another. True he can get pretty bossy but he does care about his teammates.

Banban Akaza may be a jerk at first (and fans didn't like him immediately) but he became a likable character as he learns about responsibility as a leader. At least he's not like Jack who dozed off at the obstacle course but he's a LOT more dangerous than Jack can ever be.

Hoji Tomasu/Deka Blue as I think he can be a jerk at times, that is during the earlier episodes when he failed to rescue the princess without double-checking. Well not really but I think he can qualify in certain ways but as the least of the jerks that is. :-P So far, I find him the most developed one in their team.

Inou Masumi/Bouken Black is the rough guy who doesn't follow orders but later showed he cares about his teammates especially Natsuki Mamiya/Bouken Yellow.

Gunpei Ishihara/Go-on Black wasn't a good guy at the first impression.

Hiruto and Mio Suto- The siblings were bad-ass and far more rigid than the rest of the Go-ongers, quite in contrast to Gem and Gemma who were lighthearted characters (and are geniuses in contrast to these two).  However in the end, they revealed they did care about the other teammates.

Chiaki Tani/Shinken Green was unlikable at first because he always wanted to be better than Takeru/Shinken Red.


  1. I liked several of these guys due to how much they all changed. :D

  2. Go-onger also had Gold, Gaoranger also had Silver (maybe he wasn't so much of a jerk though, just a loner?) and Megaranger had MegaBlack - I'm not counting Blue cos he was still a jerk at the end! Goseiger's Hyde seems to be going this way as well

  3. I'm starting to wonder if you read TV Tropes. Jerk With A Heart Of Gold is an entry there, and it pretty much fits in what you're describing.

    Still... Takeru/Red Mask? He may be a bit too rash and emotional, but he's overall a nice guy who's not quite the jerk (rashness and jerkassery are different things)... The rest fits, though.
