"The Burning Flame Element! The Red Mage, (Legend) MagiRed!"
―MagiRed's role call[src]

Kai Ozu (小津 魁 Ozu Kai?) is the youngest of the Ozu Family, he is the Red Mage, MagiRed (赤の魔法使いマジレッド Aka no Mahōtsukai Maji Reddo?) of the Magirangers. He uses his proficiency with alchemy and his power over the element of fire to fight evil.

Design

He wore red spandex with a short red cape, which was an outline for a large "M", which went all the way down to his boots. His belt buckle was in the shape of an "M" also. His helmet bore the symbol of the Phoenix.

Biography

Magiranger

17 (23 as of Gokaiger) years old and the youngest of the Ozu siblings, Kai is a Red Mage, a wizard who has power over the Burning Flame Element (燃える炎のエレメント Moeru Honō no Eremento?). Despite being the youngest, he still follows the tradition of his fellow Red Rangers of being the team leader. He's a sophomore student who is into soccer and bickers often with his older brother Tsubasa.

His straightforward and impulsive behavior often leads to him making mistakes, but Kai is kind at heart and very brave for his age. He hates to be babied and wants to be treated like an adult, though his frequent bouts of impulsiveness and naivete often bar him from being treated like a mature adult . He was most upset about his mother's apparent death at the hands of Dark Magic Knight Wolzard, and swore vengeance for it, until he learned that Wolzard was his father.

During the course of the series, he inherits many of Isamu's techniques, mainly his "Blazing Storm" and lives by his father's saying "Chance is something you make yourself."

His primary attack is "Red Fire", where his body is engulfed in flame creating a Phoenix image which burns any adversary it flies through. As Red Mage Legend MagiRed (レジェンドマジレッド Aka no Mahōtsukai Rejendo Majireddo?), Kai's "MagiBolt" summons a torrent of fire, which is more powerful than Red Fire. In the special "Tokusei Magiranger Special", Kai drops his MagiPhone into the Mini Garden Spring while dueling with MagiShine and the Goddess of the Mini-Spring gives him the option of getting either a Silver MagiPhone or the Golden GripPhone and so he lies to gain the Golden GripPhone and with it, the ability to become Heavenly Hero KaiShine (天空勇者カイシャイン Tenkū Yūsha Kaishain?).

As KaiShine, he wears MagiShine's armor, with a red neck scarf in place of MagiShine's flowing golden cape. However, he accidentally transforms himself into a duplicate of Hades Beast Spider and since he lied to get the Golden GripPhone, its magic is closed off to him. Fortunately, the Goddess of the Mini-Spring is able to use magic to restore him when he pledges to never be dishonest again and his normal MagiPhone is returned to him. At the end of the series, he becomes a sort of a liaison between the "Surface World" and Infershia. He also now dresses in his father's traditional Magitopian robe and which implies that he will carry on his father's legacy as a great warrior of magic. AkaRed in GoGo Sentai Boukenger vs. Super Sentai transformed into MagiRed and fought against Chronos, Duchess Org Tsuetsue, Sorcery Priest Meemy and Arch Priest Gajah.

Also, In the Special "Mahou Sentai Magiranger vs. Dekaranger" it is shown that Kai carries a picture of Yuka Yamazaki, whom he loves, in his Magiphone. When Ban asked him that if, in ten years on the next Fantastic Happy Day, they themselves would have families of their own.

Gokaiger

Kaio

Kai summoning Flagel to challenge Marvelous and Don.

A few years later, Kai fought alongside not only his own team, but every single Sentai ranger in existence, against the Empire of Zangyack when it attacked the Earth in the Great Legend War. After fighting against hundreds of Gormin and their Zgormin commanders. AkaRenger noticed the fleet moving towards them, he gathered all the Rangers together and gave them the order to sacrifice their powers to wipe out the first invasion's armada.

When the Gokaigers landed on Earth, their guide Navi told them to find "A man dressed in black". This man turned out to be none other than Kai, now 23 years old and calling himself "A magician who has forgotten his magic" and challenged Gokai Red and Gokai Green.

Gokaiger Kai

Kai as the first legend assisting the Gokaigers.

Kai helped Gokai Green realize the "true power of the Magirangers", which turned out to be courage. He revealed to Marvelous that he could only gain the Greatest Treasure in the Universe once he unlocked the Greater Powers of the Ranger Keys.

After the defeat of Ackdos Gill, Captain Marvelous returned all the Ranger Keys to the former Sentai heroes. Since his older sister Houka got her powers back, it is assumed he got his powers back as well.

Super Hero Taisen

MagiRed (Super Hero Taisen)

MagiRed casts the Magi Majuulu Gogoolu Jingajin spell on a group of six MakamouIcon-crosswiki.

Kai, alongside his team (MagiShine, MagiMother, and Wolzard Fire were absent), among the majority of the Super Sentai heroes, was caught up in the "Super Hero Taisen" incident which eventually resulted in the Super Sentai teams and Kamen Riders joining forces to defeat both Dai-Zangyack and Dai-Shocker.

Hand-Off

MagiRed was the first Sentai Red to have a Hand-Off from his predecessor and to his successor.

Red Senshi Handover- Dekaranger - Magiranger

DekaRed meets MagiRed.

MagiRed appears before DekaRed, by a stark black background through a spark of fire. Both Rangers give each other a high five, and turn their attention toward the viewers. Episode. 50: Forever Dekaranger

DekaRanger MagiRanger Hand Off00:15

DekaRanger MagiRanger Hand Off

MagiRed (outside) calls Bouken Red (black background) through his MagiPhone. Through a split-screen effect, Bouken Red turns his attention toward the viewers, posing. This is, so far, the only Hand-Off where the two Reds do not physically meet one another, with MagiRed instead making phone contact with Bouken Red (Satoru Akashi) from a different location. This is also the only Hand-Off between two Reds who did not meet up in a subsequent team-up focused exclusively on their teams' meeting (ie. not counting the Legend War, where they did not interact with each other anyway). Final Stage: Return to Legends

Ranger Key

MagiRed Ranger Key

The MagiRed Ranger Key.

The MagiRed Ranger Key (マジレッドレンジャーキー MajiReddo Renjā Kī?) is Kai Ozu'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 MagiRed Ranger Key was mainly used by Captain Marvelous (Gokai Red), who used it to fight as MagiRed. It was also used by Gai Ikari (Gokai Silver), Luka Millfy (Gokai Yellow) and Ahim de Famille (Gokai Pink) on several occasions.

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. It is presumed that Kai received his key and became MagiRed once more.

Behind the scenes

Portrayal

Kai Ozu is portrayed by Atsushi Hashimoto (橋本 淳 Hashimoto Atsushi?). As MagiRed, his suit actor was Seiji Takaiwa (高岩 成二 Takaiwa Seiji?), who among his many roles are several Sentai Reds and Kamen Riders including, ironically concerning MagiRed, the titular rider of Kamen Rider Wizard. In Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen, MagiRed's voice was provided by Tatsuhisa Suzuki (鈴木 達央 Suzuki Tatsuhisa?), who voices Usada Lettuce in Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.

Dub names

In the Korean dub of Magiranger entitled Power Rangers Magic Force, which aired in South Korea, Kai keeps his name.

Sentai notes

  • At the age of 17 in 2005, he was the youngest Red Ranger in the entire Sentai Series and the only Red Ranger who was below 18. He is however the third Red ranger who is below the age of 20 following Riki/Red Turbo and Kenta/Mega Red. Ironically, all three Red Rangers are all high school students while serving as Red Rangers.
  • He is the first Ranger Legend to give his team's Greater Power in Gokaiger.
  • Kai shares his name with Kai Chen/Galaxy Blue of Power Rangers Lost Galaxy and Kai Samezu (Gao Blue) of Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger'.
    • He however is the only one of these three to not be blue and to be red.
  • Kai is the first male, as well as the only Red Warrior, to have a Phoenix motif.
    • The other three were all female and their team's Pink.
    • Coincidentally, all four Phoenix Rangers have three-letter first names.
    • Goro Hoshino also possessed a phoenix for his mecha, but is more known for his Star Motif.
  • He is the second Red Ranger to use an attack called "Red Fire" since Hokuto Dan.
  • In a slight irony, Kai is also the name of the son of Zyuranger's Witch Bandora, who is portrayed by the late Machiko Soga (who plays Heavenly Arch Saint Magiel in Magiranger).
  • He is the first Red Ranger in an all-sibling sentai team who is not the first-born child in the family.
  • Kai's actor Atsushi Hashimoto narrated the Japanese dub of Power Rangers Mystic Force.
