Character History

Maskman

The 21-year-old second-in-command of the team, he specialized in Kobudo. Feeling lonely one day, he decided to try to find himself a date, but his only success came after he helped a girl named Miyuki fend off a couple of rude bikers, whom she was defending an elderly woman from. His attentions led Baraba to use her in one of his plots, having Doll Doggler take her place and attempt to kill Kenta. Even though he was able to rescue her, Kenta decided that he didn't want to endanger her further by getting into a relationship while Underground Empire Tube was still a threat. Ep. 7: Explode! Kenta's Love

When a Doggler Beast stole the Aura Power of the other Maskmen, Kenta was the only one left who could fight. He worked as a mechanic for the Sugata Racing Team and once worked for the Sun Racing Team.

Ranger Key

Black Mask Ranger Key

The Black Mask Ranger Key.

The Black Mask Ranger Key (ブラックマスクレンジャーキー Burakku Masuku Renjā Kī?) is Kenta'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 Black Mask Ranger Key was mainly used by Don Dogoier (Gokai Green), who used it to fight as Black Mask.

The Maskman 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. The puppet Maskmen fired their Jet Cannon alongside the Changemen, Flashmen, Livemen, and Turborangers, only to be swiftly defeated by the individual finisher attacks of the Gokaigers and Goseigers as they emerged from the resulting fireball.

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