Cube Kuma (キューブクマ Kyūbu Kuma?, lit. Cube Bear) is a brown auxiliary Zyuoh Cube modeled after a brown bear. It forms the upper left ankle of Wild Tousai King and the left elbow of Wild Tousai Dodeka King.
Instead of a number, Cube Kuma/Panda is emblazoned with an exclamation point (!). This is to signify that although this is a Zyuoh Cube, it is not one of the six King's Credentials. In battle, Cube Kuma/Panda can perform a somersaulting attack as well as bouncing up and down on an opponent in its cube form.

Cube Kuma originally lay dormant in the form of a stony outcrop jutting out of a hill which was aptly named Axe Rock Mountain. During the Zyuohgers' battle against the enlarged Deathgalien Player Noborizon, Wild ZyuohKing was suddenly disarmed when Noborizon knocked the King Sword from its hand, leading it to grab the outcrop to use as a weapon when the stone began to pulse and roar before revealing itself as Cube Kuma in its Kuma Axe form. After beating Noborizon with Cube Kuma's aid and knowing that the "Bird Man,", the Zyuohgers wondered if he was aware of its true nature.
The Kuma Axe was summoned by the Zyuohgers again against Dorobozu, using it to counter his vacuumed car projectiles before quickly destroying the Deathgalien with the Kuma Axe Zyuoh Impact. It was later wielded to beat back Hunterji before promptly finishing him as well. Later still, the Kuma Axe was used to finish off Mantle.
As one of the Zyuohgers' fourteen Zyuoh Cubes, Cube Kuma became a component of the ultimate combination, Doubutsu Dai Gattai Wild Tousai Dodeka King.
Cube Kuma can change into the Kuma Axe (クマアックス Kuma Akkusu?) which Wild ZyuohKing can use to perform the Kuma Axe Zyuoh Impact (クマアックス・ジュウオウインパクト Kuma Akkusu Jūō Inpakuto?) finisher, a powerful cleaving blow.

- Cube Kuma's transformation into an axe is a reference to the Japanese folktale of Kintarō.
- The reference is played even further with Cube Kuma upgrading into Cube Panda, which is gold in color.
- This legend was previously the basis for Kamen Rider Den-O's Kintaros, who wields an axe in his Imagin form and not only provides Den-O with the Axe Form, but also transforms into the KintaOno for New Den-O to wield.
- Cube Kuma is, by far, the only Zyuoh Cube with an upgraded form.
