Biography

Sun Vulcan

A naval officer who is also an oceangrapher, Samejima spent most of his childhood in Africa most specifically in the Saharan region where his parents worked. Having lost his parents and younger brother during an altercation between warring tribal clans, Samejima's hatred for any form of violence motivated him to volunteer for the Sun Vulcan project.

Design

VulShark wears a blue cloth suit with a white stripe around the collar and a large "V" that appears in the middle of the chest. His gloves and boots are inverse in color: the colors are white while the stripe is blue, around the wrist in the gloves and creating a similar "V" formation along the ankle of the boots. A silver belt surrounds his mid-section with a buckle with the raised relief of an shark upon it; while a pin with the Sun Vulcan logo is pinned on his right side and a scarf flows around his neck. His helmet has a black visor that is jagged at the bottom going down to a gray mouthpiece, while the top and sides are surrounded in blue with a relief form of a shark head head, with the rest of the helmet completely blue in color.

Ranger Key

VulShark Ranger Key

The VulShark Ranger Key.

The VulShark Ranger Key (バルシャークレンジャーキー Buru Shāku Renjā Kī?) is Kin'ya Samejima'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 VulShark Ranger Key was mainly used by Joe Gibken (Gokai Blue), who used it to fight as VulShark.

The Sun Vulcan 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 VulShark 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. Kin'ya received his key and became VulShark once more. Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates

Behind the scenes

Etymology

  • Kin'ya's surname can be translated into "Shark Island".

Notes

  • During the opening credits, the animal that symbolizes VulShark is a sand tiger shark.
  • Coincidentally, both he and Kai Samezu of Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger are both shark-based heroes and have "same" (shark) as part of his last name.
