"Warrior of Courage! Dan!"
―Dan announcing his attribute[src]

Etoffe Tribe Knight Dan (エトフ族ナイト ダン Etofu Zoku Naito Dan?) is the TriceraRanger (トリケラレンジャー Torikera Renjā?) of the Zyurangers, the "Warrior of Courage". He was biologically 19 years old. He is young with great lack of discipline, and he acts like he's younger than Boi. He liked to help troubled people, but often got carried away. He was impressed by modern-day technology and worked part-time to buy a computer. He was something of a flirt.



Dan loves a good joke, comic books, and often rushes in when he should step back and think first. He and Mei were poisoned and his character deformed, to become first a street punk, and later to run a gambling den. He and Goushi worked hard together to get Burai the water that would save his life, although he used it to save the life of a boy, Kota, which was some comfort.

Ranger Key

TriceraRanger Ranger Key

The TriceraRanger Ranger Key.

The TriceraRanger Ranger Key (トリケラレンジャーレンジャーキー Torikera Renjā Renjā Kī?) is Dan's personal Ranger Key and what became of his powers after he along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.

This key along with the majority of the Ranger Keys were collected by the Red Pirates and later used by the Gokaigers. The TriceraRanger Ranger Key was mainly used by Joe Gibken (Gokai Blue), who used it to fight as TriceraRanger.

The Zyuranger keys, along with all the Ranger Keys of the first 33 Super Sentai, were briefly taken by the Black Cross King and turned into Ranger puppets that were fought by the Gokaigers and the Goseigers. Splitting up, the puppet TriceraRanger was defeated as part of a group of surviving Blue warrior keys by Gokai Blue and Super Gosei Blue. Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. Dan received his key and became TriceraRanger once more. Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates
