This article is about a/an ally in Uchu Sentai Kyuranger.

Echidna (エキドナ Ekidona) is an individual from the Hebitsukai System. She arrives on Earth with the purpose of eliminating Naga Ray due to his emotions having been awakened.

Character History

As Lucky's team on Earth were overpowered by Akyanba and the now-brainwashed Naga Ray, Echidna steps in, using her ability to paralyze the two villains, giving the Kyurangers the chance to escape. She later explains that her purpose is to eliminate Naga, so as to ensure peace amongst the people of the Hebitsukai System. The Kyurangers object to this, but Echidna denounces them for being far worse due to leading Naga to this path.

After the Kyurangers find out that Akyanba actually lied to them about how to restore Naga back to his normal self, Echidna stands firm on her decision, while Balance vows that he will be the one to protect Naga. She looks on as the Kyurangers run to trace the Orion's distress signal. Space.28: BN Thieves, Breakup...

Entering the Orion, Echidna meets those Kyurangers who had returned from the past, who briefly mistake her for Naga himself until Hammie introduces her. She repeats what she told the others before, and asks for the Kyurangers' assistance in eliminating him. When they refuse, Echidna leaves to deal with Naga alone. Engaging Hebitsukai Metal to a duel, Echidna is easily overpowered and, when she takes out her gun, is paralyzed by Naga's glare and almost compelled to shoot herself until the Kyurangers intervene. When she witnesses Lucky and Balance seemingly perish in the resulting battle, Echidna tells those remaining that it was the cost of their hesitation only to learn that it was a deception; Lucky and Balance used the Genbikyo Kyutama to survive Naga's attack followed by the Usagi Kyutama to leap into his body where they would find and purge the Jark Matter corruption in his mind. After Naga is freed, Echidna watches as his teammates rejoice for his return to the fold. Before taking her leave, Echidna states that she still believes emotions to be unnecessary, but concedes that the Kyurangers are strong due to their emotions, urging Naga to save the universe.

Notes

  • Her name is derived from Echidna, a drakaina from Greek mythology.
  • She is portrayed by an actor, but needs to be dubbed over by another actor, similar to Ren AmagasakiIcon-crosswiki from Kamen Rider Ex-Aid who was physically portrayed by actor Shinya KoteIcon-crosswiki, but was voiced by Junichi Suwabe when talking to his fellow Bugsters.
  • The gun she used is the same gun used by Quester Gai.
