Character History

Origin

Constructed in the Tenbin System, Balance was "born" on March 26th no earlier than 1717. Though one of [if not] the oldest of the Kyurangers, Balance noted that he was the youngest of his clan. Space.7: Take Back the Birthday!

Meeting Naga Ray

While Balance was stealing a treasure from the Hebitsukai System, officers were alerted to his presence, and he had to escape quickly. He soon met Naga, mistaking him for one of the officers and pleaded for mercy. However, Naga decided that Balance was the key for him to be able to learn emotion, and expressed his wish to Balance. Balance thought that this was his chance, and made use of Naga to help him escape. Space.28: BN Thieves, Breakup...

Balance and Naga Ray became partners in thieving against Jark Matter, becoming known as the two-man BN Team whom were branded with a combined five million Pongi bounty by Jark Matter. Space.2: Let's Go! Phantom Thief BN Team!

As Tenbin Gold

It was on Zigama that the pair discovered the Kyurangers on a wanted poster, Space.1: The Super Stars of Space finding them to have a bounty ten times more than theirs. Having heard about a local Jark Matter facility storing a precious gem, the pair met Lucky, who believed them to be bearers of Kyutamas themselves, on the way to their mark. While they tell Lucky they aren't, Lucky still decides to wait out his luck and work with them on their job. However, instead of being stealthy, they are discovered because of Lucky looking for a fight. Balance betrays Lucky by lashing him with his cables, to Naga Ray's surprise, in full view of Jark Matter. However, Balance is shocked when Naga is angered and chooses to stay with Lucky. Balance asks to see the gem as reward and is allowed. He, however steals the gem. Seeing that Naga and Lucky are to be executed immediately, he intervenes by controlling the death trap. Balance and Naga Ray earn their Kyutamas and fight with the Kyurangers, joining them on the ORION after taking down Zigama's Daikaan Gamettsui. Space.2: Let's Go! Phantom Thief BN Team!

Introduced by Raptor to commander Shou Ronpo, the seven Kyurangers were sent to save the planet Needle from destruction at the hands of the Jark Matter. Engaged by a hostile new Kyuranger, Stinger, Balance and the others bar Lucky and Champ were struck by the Sasori System native's sting. However, the afflicted Kyurangers ultimately recovered in time to destroy the Moraimarz that was draining Needle's Planet Jume. Space.3: The Man from the Desert Star

When the Orion arrived in orbit of Earth, a planet strangely containing numerous Moraimarz, Balance and Naga were left on the ship to work on equipment under Shou Ronbou as the others were assigned to land on Earth for the first time by the commander's Kyulette, establishing a link between the Kyu Buckles which would allow the Kyurangers to summon Kyutama at will. Balance later joined the crew in congratulating Raptor on her transformation into Washi Pink. Space.4: Dreamy Android

Space.5: 9 Ultimate Saviors

After the destruction of Daikaan Mothma's Moraimarz, the crew discovered that they had lost control of the ship and that they had been sent on a direct course to the Sun, causing a sharp rise in temperature which the mechanical Balance tolerated better than his organic shipmates. The ship and crew were ultimately saved, however, as Mozuma was destroyed by Shishi Red and Koguma Skyblue, causing his microbic extensions to dissipate and return control of the ship. Space.10: A Small Giant, Big Star!

Balance was among the crew left behind to perform repairs on the Orion following the ordeal with the Sun as a team was led by Shou to recover the Tomo Kyutama on Earth. Space.11: Three Kyutama to Save The Universe

Balance remained on the Orion with Garu and the commander while a team was sent to acquire the Ho Kyutama on Vela; receiving an update from Stinger and Champ, they learn that Scorpio had been made Karo of the Sasori System and sent to Earth. Space.15: Savior of the Water Planet Vela

Other Events

Zyuohger vs. Ninninger

Through unknown circumstances, the nine Kyurangers made a brief appearance on an Earth where Jark Matter was not present. Instead, the Kyurangers arrived to intervene against the Deathgalien before they could interfere with the Zyuohgers' fight with the Ninningers for the future of Super Sentai against Gillmarda. With Tenbin Gold aiding in wiping out the Moeba pack, the Kyurangers eventually forced the Deathgalien to retreat before taking their leave with their appearance observed by the Zyuohger ally Bud, who realized that the future was in safe hands.

Tenbin Gold appears with his team among all Sentai in the mobile game Super Sentai Legend Wars.

Personality

At first he seemed to be greedy, but he cares enough about his partner Naga. He is flashy, energetic and fast-talking. His flamboyant attitude balances the more neutral demeanor of his partner Naga.

He has a habit of saying 'Goisu!' (Radical) and 'Agepoyo wei!' (I'm so pumped) whenever he has interesting idea or feeling very happy.

When he feels sad, he often tries to put on a positive demeanor to hide his sorrow in public. An example was when he had his birthday temporarily stolen. He put on this demeanor again when he found out that Naga was compromised, and dropped it when Shou Ronpo told him to not force himself.

Powers and Abilities

Techno-organic Physiology
As a techno-organic life-form, he has shown the following superhuman abilities:
Decelerated Aging
He celebrated his 300th birthday in episode 7. At the end of episode 14, he was comically cursed by a Tamatebako box which made him 100 years older, but he was completely unfazed by it.
Heat Resistance
He cannot be dehydrated, and can still function normally under the extreme heat when Orion approaches the Sun while the organic members of the Orion's crew are weakened by heat to the point of being immobilized.
Technopathy
As a mechanical life-form, Balance has the ability to control other machines. ​He can also read and process recordings from the CCTV system.
Cyber Mind
Balance himself can record and process videos through his eyes, but this requires him stay out of battle.

Portrayal

Notes

  • Since his constellation theme is Libra ("The Scales"), he is the only Kyuranger who doesn't have an animal motif.
  • He is the only Kyuranger who doesn't wear a jacket (although he does adorn indigo plating that resembles their civilian jacket after joining the team).
  • Tenbin Gold's helmet design is distinct in that it has robotic "vents" in place of the molded lips design present on the other Kyurangers' helmets.
  • He was actually able to form the Kyu Sword after Lucky demonstrated it to him, but swapped to Kyu Crossbow due to how heavy it was for him.
  • His birthday is in March 26.
    • This would effectively make him an Aries, Libra's polar opposite on the Zodiac Wheel.
  • He is 300 years old, but due to Tamatebako he stole from Space Dragon Palace Castle he is 400 years old.
  • Balance looks similar to Peebo of Bioman.
  • Balance is the first Gold Ranger with these traits
    • Balance has the earliest appearance of all Gold Rangers, having debuted as a ranger in episode 2.
    • The first Gold Ranger not to be a Sixth Ranger.
