"Merci."
―After collecting the Lupin Collection.

Kogure (コグレ) is a butler who serves the Lupin Estate, assisting the Lupinrangers on behalf of the descendants of Arsène Lupin.

Character History

Kogure individually approached Kairi Yano, Tooma Yoimachi, Umika Hayami, three youths who had each lost someone to the Gangler Zamigo Delma. Offering them each a VS Changer, Kogure gave them the opportunity to grant their wish by collecting the Lupin Collection as the Lupinrangers. Number 2: International Police, Chase After Them

One year later, Kogure received the Comme un cube qui roule reclaimed by Kairi, adding it to the book while giving Lupin Red his next objective, the Allume-moi held by Garatt Nargo at the vacant Konoe Factory on Kurehama Pier. Number 1: The Troublemaking Phantom Thieves

Kogure materialized in the Bistrot Jurer just after the GSPO Tactical Unit departed to the surprise of the Lupinrangers, receiving the Allume-moi they had retrieved. When asked by Kairi as to why the officers had pieces of the Lupin Collection, Kogure claimed he was looking into the matter and requested patience before giving him his next target. Curiously, when the Lupinrangers mentioned his name in earshot of GoodStriker, the sentient Lupin Collection item hastily left their side to join the Patrangers in fighting the Gangler before taking his leave. Receiving the Qui a fait qui, Kogure was asked about GoodStriker and revealed that he has always been difficult to handle and could well be part of the reason why the police have their own Lupin Collection pieces. When the Tactical Unit returned to eat, Kogure disappeared as mysteriously as he first arrived. Number 3: Take Them Back No Matter What

While reclaiming the Je vais t'habiller, the Lupinrangers pointed out that Kogure never actually ordered any food. Kogure claimed that he was too busy to eat at the bistrot before taking his leave. Number 4: Unacceptable Relationship

Learning of the existence of an additional Dial Fighter and Trigger Machine, the Lupinrangers noted that this was not mentioned by Kogure, and that there was still a lot they did not know from him. Number 5: Targeted, the International Police

Powers and Abilities

  • Stealth: Kogure can enter and depart the Bistrot Jurer freely without making a sound. Number 3: Take Them Back No Matter What
  • Master of Disguise: Kogure was able to perfectly mimic someone to help Lupinrangers. He manage disguised himself as Kairi twice in order to help trick the GSPO into thinking that the Bistrot Jurer employees are not the Lupinrangers and to retrieve Umika's VS Changer without arousing GSPO suspicions. He also manage to mimic Lupinrangers 'mother' that looks similar to Tsukasa as Tooma mentioned to retrieve the Child Lupinangers, much to Jim's shock.Number 8: The Thieves' Identities Number 33: We Are The Youth Thief Brigade

Arsenal

  • Lupin Collection Book: Kogure holds a mysterious book that contains the pieces of the Lupin Collection. This serves as a safekeeping item in order for Kogure to protect the Lupin Collection, as well as putting an item into the pages of the book, or take a piece out.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

  • Kogure is portrayed by Yōichi Nukumizu (温水 洋一 Nukumizu Yōichi). Disguised as Kairi Yano, he is portrayed by Asahi Itou (伊藤あさひ Itou Asahi). Disguised as Child Lupinrangers' 'mother' who looks similar to Tsukasa Myoujin, he is portrayed by Kazusa Okuyama (奥山かずさ Okuyama Kazusa).

Notes

  • Kogure's use of disguises could be a reference to Spencer from Power Rangers Operation Overdrive, as both are butler/mentor figures who use disguises to help their respective Rangers when the need arises.
    • Given the parallel between the Lupin Collection and the Precious from the series' adaptation, this might be a deliberate inference to the character.
