Ryuji Iwasaki (岩崎 リュウジ Iwasaki Ryūji?) is Blue Buster (ブルーバスター Burū Basutā?) of the Go-Busters. He is a warrior with excellent fighting technique, as well as the oldest of the team. His partner Buddy Roid is Gorisaki Banana.
His Buster Power is super strength. However, this has a dangerous trade-off. When Ryuji uses his power too much he starts to overheat and has to take time to cool down. If he completely overheats, his personality changes to a very violent person, and might do some lasting damage before shutting down.
Ryuji is the eldest of the 3 Busters and the most level headed of the three. He is 28 years old. He's the only one to not have a family member appear in the series.
The three Go-Busters make their first appearance in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger vs. Uchuu Keiji Gavan: The Movie where they take on their predecessors' nemesis, Basco ta Jolokia.
Super Hero Taisen ZEdit
The three Go-Busters are set to appear in Kamen Rider × Super Sentai × Space Sheriff: Super Hero Taisen Z. It has yet to be confirmed whether they will be joined by Beet and Stag Buster.
Video Game appearancesEdit
Go-Busters video gameEdit
Ryuji as Blue Buster appears with his team in the Nintendo DS Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters video game.
- Buster Vehicle GT-02: Blue Buster's truck
- GT-02's Animal/MegaZord Mode, GT-02 Gorilla.
As Blue Buster uses the GB Custom Visor, Gorisaki Banana's data transfers and projects onto Blue Buster's suit to form a powerful armor based on the "protector" prototypes. Gorisaki and Blue Buster, to a degree are combined and can create stone constructs from data manifested on-grounds. Blue Buster/Gorisaki gain the attack "Gorilarge Punch" which allows Blue Buster to manifest an oversized Gorisaki fist for a supercharged punch.
Cool-headed and reasonable, Ryuuji is always one to keep his head in the game while his younger comrades bicker amongst themselves. While he knows he's the oldest of the group and acknowledges this, he hates it when anyone other than him mentions this and reminds him of his age.
While he is normally level headed, if Ryuuji overheats completely because of the use of his super strength he becomes sadistic and irritable and will lash out at anything he finds annoying.

Behind the scenesEdit
Ryuji Iwasaki is portrayed by Ryouma Baba (馬場 良馬 Baba Ryōma?). As a teenager, he is portrayed by Koudai Matsuoka (松岡 広大 Matsuoka Kōdai?). Ryuji was briefly portrayed by Syo Jinnai (陳内 将 Jinnai Sho?) in Mission 28: Beware of Chickens, when Sprayloid 2 caused his appearance to change into that of Enter, though Ryouma Baba still provided Ryuji's voice.
As Blue Buster, his suit actor is Yasuhiro Takeuchi (竹内 康博 Takeuchi Yasuhiro?), whose previous role was Gokai Green in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger. Other recent roles are Gosei Red, Shinken Green, and Go-On Green.
- He is both the second gorilla-themed hero as well as the second Blue to be a gorilla, after Gouki of Seijuu Sentai Gingaman.
- Of the core 3 Go-Busters, Ryuji is the only one whose Super Power does not manifest in his legs.
The Blue Buster Ranger Key (ブルーバスターレンジャーキー Burū Basutā Renjā Kī?) is a Go-Buster Ranger Key which as part of the first three Go-Busters was released as part of the "Legends" series of toys. It only exists as a toy and it is unknown if it will appear in the series. Of course as with all Ranger Keys, should it exist, it would be able to transform one, i.e. Gokai Blue, into Blue Buster.
