The Seven Fist Sages (七拳聖 ,Shichi Kensei) are the legendary creators of the Gekijuken style, originally under the wing of Bruce E. When their three fellow students split off and founded the Rinjuken Akugata as the Three Kenma, Brusa Ee died of foul play and the two groups battled each other in the Geki-Rin Rebellion, with the Fist Sages ending the horrific fight with a forbidden Gekiwaza that sealed the Fist Demons' bodies and forced the seven into their current animal forms along with them swearing a Beast-Fist Oath of Nonviolence soon after, fighting only in defense. Among them are the creators of the three Fierce Beast-Fist weapon art styles that utilize one's heart and the meteor hammer, one's technique and the war fan, and one's body with sabers. Three others make up the Master Triangle (マスタートライアングル ,Masutā Toraianguru), three Fist Sages who had each fully mastered one of the three major aspects of the Fierce Beast-Fist Beast Arts: Heart, Technique, and Body. The seventh Fist Sage, Sha-Fu mastered all three aspects of the Beast Arts and thus is the strongest of the Fist Sages. While it was Sha-Fu who took the Gekirangers under his wing, the others have taught his students the weaponry techniques of their styles and the path to obtain Extreme Ki. While the others refer to each of them as "Master", the Fist Sages are referred to by Jan Kandou as the animal they resemble. Once every year, the Fist Sages would gather to have their annual Fist Sage Great Athletic Meet (拳聖大運動会 ,Kensei Daiundōkai), where their hone their skills while maintaining fair sportsmanship.
After the first Fierce Confrontation, the Fist Sages created the Sevenfold Barrier of Seven Sages (七重七聖の関 ,Nanae Nanasei no Seki) that prevents those of the Confrontation Beast Fist to enter the sacred grounds of the Beast Origin Village. However, the barrier can be torn down by the Virtuous Beast Sword which fell into Rio's hands. The Fist Sages attempted to stop him, but it ended up with them facing the Fist Demons once more. However, as the Beast Origin Village burns to the ground, Maku seals all seven Fist Sages into a boulder and takes their power as his own. Once Maku was finally destroyed, his Ringi faded and the Fist Sages returned to normal. Each of the Fist Sages have been named after a prominent figure in martial arts movies, with their group name a pun on "sensei".

This Gekiwaza was used long ago by the Fist Sages to defeat the Fist Demons, assuming their current forms as a result. Fierce Beast Fly-Fist Bae and Gou Fukami also used this move in their respective battles prior to the series. However, due to an imperfect aspect while performing the Gekiwaza, the two each ended up in a flawed form, though only Gou has been able to regain his original human form.

He seemed to had a relationship with Rageku prior their transformations, with him spurring her love for him. He was originally a friend of Maku; however, Sha-Fu turned down Brusa's offer to be his successor and suggested Maku. This act of kindness wounded Maku's pride and ended their friendship, which Sha-Fu regretted ever since. Sha-Fu appears to be an aged anthropomorphic caracal with his eyes normally closed, opening them when he gets serious and deep like sensing the qi like those of the Akugata. He loves to be scratched on the neck, referred to by Jan as "Cat" (猫 ,Neko), and always carries around a triangle with him. His motto is "There is training in one's livelihood" (暮らしの中に修行あり ,Kurashi no naka ni shugyō ari), as his training has the Gekirangers learning from the various things life has to offer. While helping Jan, Sha-Fu found one of Long's scale in the ruins of Jan's hometown, learning the truth behind Maku's betrayal among the revelations of Rio and Jan's past encounters with Long.

He was living on Shibe Mountain where he tested the Gekirangers in the guise of a mononoke, taking the package the Gekirangers were given to deliver to him, which they, with a great deal of difficulty, managed to take back from him. Elehung, due to his perverted nature, chose Ran Uzaki as his student of Elephant-Fist so she can master the GekiHammer, though he gave her a hard time due to his teaching methods.

Though he refused at first, Bat Li eventually decides to train Retsu Fukami after witnessing his abilities first hand. It later turned out that long ago he saved a young girl named Hanyon, whom he promised to be with forever. However, he left to master his Fierce Beast-Fist style with intent on keeping Hanyon from harm due to his presence.

Sharkie Chan lived on the isolated Aozame Island, becoming its first sumo champ, until the Gekirangers arrived with Sharkie amazed by Jan's skills in the "canoe race" test he set up (which Jan won). Jan soon became Sharkie's first pupil, with the two instantly getting along as Jan called his teacher "Shark" (鮫 ,Same). However Dokariya's interference and GekiShark's sudden attack left Sharkie to feel unfit to train others, furthered by Bat-Li and Elehung's criticisms, forcing him to renounce Jan as his student. However, after being framed by Dokariya of attempting to kill Sha-Fu, Sharkie's spirits were lifted by Jan defending Sharkie's honor as a Beast Fist Master and Sha-Fu approving him as a true mentor. Sharkie was originally the holder of the Ikigimo until he lost it when a tsunami hit his island home and the item itself came into the possession of a young celebrity named Alice. His name is based on Jackie Chan (ジャッキー・チェン ,Jakkī Chen).

He is also referred by Jan as "Gorilla" (ゴリラ ,Gorira), whom Gorie taught the meaning behind "Heart" in a coin-stacking match, only to win when he questions Jan's reasons to get stronger, scolding him for his incorrect answer.
