|This article is about a/an ally in Ninja Sentai Kakuranger.|
Long ago, during the Warring States period, Saizou Kirigakure fought alongside Sasuke Sarutobi, Seikai Miyoshi, Jiraiya, and Tsuruhime. One Youkai he fought personally was Amikiri, whose right arm he severed in a sword duel, an act which she would later seek revenge on his descendant for. Kirigakure worked together with the other four legendary ninja to seal Nurarihyon behind the Door of Seals.
Hundreds of years later, his spirit, alongside the spirits of his allies, appeared before their modern day decsendents Sasuke, Saizou, and Tsuruhime after Sasuke and Saizou pulled their swords out of the earth. Despite his skepticism of his descendent, Kirigakure gave Saizou his Doron Changer, allowing him to become NinjaBlue, but not without some minor chastising.
As forseen in the Kakuranger manga created by the youkai Mujina, an apparition of Saizou Kirigakure randomly appeared running past the Kakurangers in the parallel dimension, quickly disappearing as soon as he came before they were set upon by assassins while his descendant was unable to transform.
