|This article is about a/an monster in Himitsu Sentai Gorenger.|
After an initial battle with the Gorenger at an EAGLE research base, Blushing Mask was set up as part of a scheme by Temujin to infiltrate EAGLE by becoming an android assistant for one of the Gorenger, brought within their confines and then using its information to give up secrets of Variblune to them. However after it was "won" by Ooiwa in a lottery contest, the circuitry that was meant to be installed within fell to the ground and became defective, breaking its means of spywork. As such, Blushing Mask becomes "Android 0-gou" (written as "Android 00-gou" on the certificate), utilized to assist Ooiwa in mundane tasks such as making curry, telling riddles and assisting in Gorenger schemes. As the Gorenger discover the potential that the android had, they tested it and discovered nothing wrong, allowing for Kirenger to keep the being for himself and assist in his work.
However during a scheme where Ooiwa and Android 0-gou do some collecting of scrap metal, Zolder spies manipulate Ooiwa through shooting the android and using curry to lure him while they give him a new circuit for returning to his mission. Blushing Mask once again becomes a Black Cross warrior and fights the Gorenger, but Kirenger decides to use the YTC Radio to weaken it so he can remove the evil chip. But before trying to restore Blushing Mask to a better status, Temujin slices its remaining circuitry with a knife, making it run out of control while still evil. The Gorenger use Gorenger Storm to summon a blue kabuki mask with razors in the eyes, the mask latches onto Blushing Mask until making him fall into nearby water where it explodes.
The incident with Blushing Mask was recalled by Akira when Daita Ooiwa brought in Aya Mizuki, a woman running from Black Cross who would turn out to be a cyborg agent, noting that Daita had a weakness of being too trusting.
