|This article is about a/an group of footsoldiers in Juken Sentai Gekiranger.|
The Rinshis (リンシーズ Rinshīzu) are the Jiangshi-like deceased Rinjuken fighters who died during the GekiRin Rebellion, revived by Rio performing the Ringi technique "Rinzai". The Rinshis are in turn led by Mele, who is in charge of their development in some cases. Being low-level users in the Akugata, they wear masks formed by a hat and a blindfold and use lances as their weapons.
If a Rinshi can cross through the Chamber of Trials (試しの房 Tameshi no Bō), defeating the other Rinshi inside single-handed, he/she can remove the mask and the animal motif on the forehead materializes, with the Rinshi receiving new attire and promoted to the more powerful rank of Rinrinshi, who can assume Beast-Man form for a tentative amount of time.
When they die, their bodies petrify and explode in violent, bluish flames. Maku sent in an entire army of Rinshi to face the Gekirangers. In the aftermath of Maku's defeat, only one Rinshi remained whom Mele assigned the task of finding her a gem, and this one has failed many times to pass the Chamber of Trials.
Finding the Raspberry Diamond, the Dropout Rinshi (おちこぼれリンシー Ochikobore Rinshī) dons Butoka armor and obtains the item before Mele enables him to use his full power. But a frustrated Ken arrives in SaiDaiOh and easily destroys the last Rinshi. The Rinshi are later revived by Long as his personal army, using them to fight the Gekirangers.
- The Rinshi are the only Sentai Foot Soldiers that share their name with their Power Ranger counterparts.
- Their potential to become a monster-of-the-week, while still otherwise being regarded as a foot soldier, would be a repeated concept in Uchu Sentai Kyuranger with the Daikaan-variant Tsuyoindaver.
