- "Monarch of the Heavens! Zyuoh Bird!"
- ―Zyuoh Bird's roll call[src]
Bud (バド Bado?), also known as Bird Man (鳥男 Tori Otoko?), is a Zyuman who gave the King's Credential to Yamato Kazakiri when he was a child. He was the one that stole the King's Credentials years ago, his hatred for Zyuland's mistreatment of humans, and for the death of his first human friend. He is later revealed to be Zyuoh Bird (ジュウオウバード Jūō Bādo?).
- "You're okay now."
- ―Bud to the young Yamato Kazakiri[src]
20 years ago, Bud was promoted as the Link Cube Guardian, and was studying with Larry about humans and their world's environments. One day, he found a young human male with a yellow jacket, who was stranded in Zyuland and injured badly, while also trying to cover the man's presence from being taken to the palace for trespassing to Zyuland mercilessly with no return to keep Zyuland's existence secret and befriend with him for his recovery. On that night, Bud's cover was blown, when the man was found and later imprisoned, and Bud tried to freed the man and run away from the Zyuland safely. However, as the man was surrounded during his escape and falls off a cliff to his death, Bud harbors a contempt for his people's mistrust towards humans afterwards, King's Credentials from the Link Cube gateway, thus disabling it as he left for the human world and labeling him as a traitor of his homeworld. He came a cross another injured human boy, Yamato Kazakiri, whom he saved by using the King's Credential to transfer his Zyuman Power to heal Yamato at the cost of Bud's own life force, resulting in him aging rapidly. Years later, when the matured Yamato discovered the Zyumans in the midst of the Deathgalien's attack on Earth, Bud snatched the remaining King's Credential while Yamato used his own along with the four stranded Zyuman guardians to fight the Deathgaliens as the Zyuohgers.leading him to steal one of the six
Bud later returned to rescue Yamato after the Zyuohgers were defeated by the Massacre Machine Gift, bringing the unconscious Yamato home before passing the four Zyumans in human form as he took his leave. Waking up, Yamato confided with his Zyuman friends that he had indeed met the Bird Man in human form, revealing that he was the man they saw earlier and that he possessed the missing King's Credential. The Zyumans were given a go by Yamato to track down the Bird Man and recover the King's Credential while he rested on his injuries while keeping an eye out for Gift. Catching up with Bud, the Zyumans were shocked to hear him speak of Zyuland with disdain as he revealed that he took the cube those years ago to sever the link between the worlds. When the Bud refused to hand it over, the Zyumans engaged him as he held onto it with force, matching the strength of all four single-handed. Transforming, the Zyuohgers were able to overpower the Bird Man, forcing the King's Credential out of his hand only to find that Gift had returned and was being faced by Yamato alone. Ultimately, the four chose to stand by Yamato and claim their way home later, leaving Bud with the King's Credential.
Following the encounter, the Zyuohgers began a search for Bud to the point of creating and distributing wanted posters bearing an illustration of his human form, choosing the depiction drawn by Sela as it was deemed greatly superior to that made by Leo. This led to Yuri Igarashi, who had seen Bud at the top of the hiking trail on Axe Rock Mountain, observing the axe-shaped stony outcrop that gave the mountain its name, to come forward to the Zyuohgers who took the hiking trail themselves in search for him only to face the Deathgalien Blood Game which was being executed by Noborizon on the mountain. Ultimately, having discovered the "Axe Rock" was infact Cube Kuma while defeating the Deathgalien Player, the Zyuohgers went to the spot at the end of the trail where Bud was spotted only to find that he had since left, leading them to wonder if he was aware that there was a dormant Zyuoh Cube waiting on the mountain.
Evidently, Bud had taken to recovering the dormant Zyuoh Cubes on Earth. Digging up Cube Hyou, he was discovered by his old friend, the gorilla Zyuman, Larry, who realized that he was the bird man that Yamato had mentioned to him.
Bud witnessed ZyuohKing activate and combine with Cube Octopus in their fight against the Saguil Brothers, the Zyuohgers having been alerted to sight of a new Zyuoh Cube by Larry. Sensing another malicious presence, Bud took off and ultimately caught up with Yamato. Finding him at the mercy of another Saguil, Bud stepped in to defend Yamato but was soon overpowered. Producing his King's Credential, Bud pleaded for it to grant him the strength he needed to protect Yamato. Resonating with Bud's wish, the remaining King's Credential became the Zyuoh Changer Final, allowing Bud to transform into Zyuoh Bird for the first time.
He aids Yamato in battle with the two Saguil Brothers and they beat them together with a Riser Spinning Slash.
Powers and Abilities
- Zyuman Power (ジューマンパワー Jūman Pawā?)
- The natural energy of individual Zyumen, they can bestow this energy upon other lifeforms to heal them via a King's Credential, granting the potential to unlock Zyuman powers as a side-effect in humans. Bud performed this act to safeguard the young Yamato, granting him the power to later transform a King's Credential into his Zyuoh Changer, giving him access to the form of Zyuoh Eagle and by extension the Cube Eagle as a result. However, as later discovered by Yamato, this would come at the cost of the Zyuman's life force, thus presumably shortening the Bud's lifespan. The process is also evidently irreversible.
- Sixth sense
- As a Zyuman, Bud can sense malicious presences such as the Deathgaliens, which are signaled by his rear feather standing on end.
- Bud is seen to adopt his own human form, presumably a result of using the King's Credential.
- Advanced Fighting Skills
- Bud's fighting skills are well enough to handle all four morphed Zyuland Zyuohger's at once.
- Riser Spinning Slash (ライザースピニングスラッシュ Raizā Supiningu Surashhu?): Extending his EagRiser into whip mode, Zyuoh Bird wraps the blade around an opponent before pulling it back, slashing them across their entire body.
Appearances: Zyuohger Episodes 37-38
In his Instinct Awakened (野生解放 Yasei Kaihō?) form, Zyuoh Bird gains a pair of wings that grant him the power of high speed flight that can cover many city blocks. He also gains enhanced kicks, mimicking how an eagle uses its talons to catch its prey, along with the ability to generate gusts of wind or light himself on fire like a Phoenix before slamming into an opponent.
- Glide Feather Slash (グライドフェザースラッシュ Guraido Fezā Surasshu?): Zyuoh Bird waves the EagRiser around in a circle and slashes the opponent two times.
Appearances: Zyuohger Episode 38
Behind the Scenes
Bud is portrayed by Kohei Murakami (村上 幸平 Murakami Kōhei?), who previously portrayed Masato Kusaka/Kamen Rider Kaixa in Kamen Rider 555. In Zyuman form, he is portrayed by suit actor Kosuke Asai (浅井 宏輔 Asai Kōsuke?), who also portrays Zyuoh Eagle. In Ranger form he is portrayed by Yasuhiko Imai, being the only Zyuman to be portrayed by two different Suit Actors in his Zyuman Form and Ranger Form, presumably because of Kosuke Asai portraying Zyuoh Eagle and Zyuoh Birs being morphed in some scenes Zyuoh Eagle appears, thus, not being able to portray two characters at the same time.
"Bud" is derived from the Japanese pronunciation of the English word bird (バード Bādo?) with the elongation kana removed.
- Zyuoh Bird is an orange recolor of Zyuoh Eagle with a modified helmet. Having given some of his Zyuman power to Yamato, his color scheme is that of a Zyuoh Eagle with some of the magenta and black tint missing, causing his reds to be orange and his blacks to be blue. He does however have new gold accents on his cuffs and Zyuoh Changer, alluding to his power.
