"The Slashing Brave, Kyoryu Green!"
―Kyoryu Green's roll call[src]

Souji Rippukan (立風館 ソウジ Rippūkan Sōji?) is Kyoryu Green (キョウリュウグリーン Kyōryū Gurīn?) of the Kyoryugers.


A 16-year-old High School student. A cool-headed swordsman with swift attacks, he declares himself the “Slashing Brave (斬撃の勇者 Zangeki no Yūsha?). He is descended from the Rippukan Family, a clan who has been practicing the assassination sword style "Peerless Sword" (無双剣 Musōken?) since the Sengoku Period.

As a form of defiance to his father, Souji defeated the Zyudenryu Zakutor in a bamboo thicket to become Kyoryu Green and soon developed a more feral fighting style, adopting a backhand grip which later became his personal sword style, "Slashing Peerless Sword" (斬撃無双剣 Zangeki Musōken?). Though distant at first, Souji eventually joins the team when Daigo resolves things between him and his father.

His mother, on the other hand, tries to complicate things by taking Souji away from the team, but finally changes her mind after hearing a few words from Torin (in human form). Brave 43: The Blade of the Soul! Roar, Streizer. Although she claims she hasn't given up on Souji, she never makes another attempt.

Torin also hands his sword Feather Edge to Souji, believing that "youth holds the greatest potential" as Souji is the youngest member (this could, however, also be because Souji was Torin's personal student).

Go-Busters vs. Gokaiger

See Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters vs. Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: The Movie#Continuity and Placement for where this takes place for the Kyoryugers.

Souji appears with his teammates and helps deal with Waredonaier and his Gormin/Sugormin army.[1]

Super Hero Taisen Z

The Kyoryugers joined the action as the current Sentai team in Kamen Rider × Super Sentai × Space Sheriff: Super Hero Taisen Z.

100 Years After


In Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger Returns: 100 YEARS AFTER, Souji is still alive at 116 years old owing to advances in medicine. He was seen with Icchan, Uppi and great-grandson Soujiro when they quit being Kyoryugers and told them to search their hearts for their right colors. When Remorseful Knight Arslevan erased the memories of the Kyoryugers from the public, Souji`s memories also faded but returned when he and Soujiro sparred and Soujiro won. At this point he also passed Feather Edge on to Soujiro, commenting on how both of them were hesitant to practice swordsmanship as teenagers. In the events before the future Kyoryugers were born, it's shown that Souji married Rin Katsuyama.

Souji's 2014 self and the other Kyoryugers were summoned by the SP Zyudenchi to help their descendants defeat Remorseful Knight Arslevan. Afterwards, he realizes he missed a meeting with Rin, who soundly beats him over the head.

ToQger vs. Kyoryuger

Img 12 m

The Kyoryugers return to fight alongside the ToQgers in Ressha Sentai ToQger vs. Kyoryuger: The Movie. Souji primarily fights alongside Toq #4, and comments on how shy the two of them are.


Souji is a cold, cool, and calm high-school student and a member of Rippukan House. Souji wishes that he was the swordsman of the team, a status that is most jeopardized by Utseminaru and Torin. Souji also practices with his father to improve his swordsmanship. Eventually, he develops his own style called "Peerless Slashing Sword", which borrows techniques from Peerless Sword, Utseminaru's lightning style, and Torin's Trinity Straizer.

He's also painfully oblivious to love, much to the ire of Rin. Brave 13: Jakkireen! I'll Protect Your Heart

Ranger Key


Kyoryu Green Ranger Key

The Kyoryu Green Ranger Key (キョウリュウグリーンレンジャーキー Kyōryū Gurīn Renjā Kī?) is a Kyoryuger Ranger Key released as part of a set of thirteen Kyoryuger Ranger Keys in Bandai Premium. It is unknown if it will appear in a future crossover. Of course as with all Ranger Keys, should it exist, it would be able to transform one, i.e. Gokai Green, into Kyoryu Green.

Behind the scenes


Souji Rippukan is portrayed by Akihisa Shiono (塩野 瑛久 Shiono Akihisa?).[2][3][4]

As Kyoryu Green, his suit actor is Kosuke Asai (浅井 宏輔 Asai Kōsuke?), who was previously the suit actor for Cheeda Nick in Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters and would later serve as suit actor for ToQ 6gou in Ressha Sentai ToQger.


  • Souji is the first Sentai hero to have a Velociraptor motif.
    • He is also the first Green Ranger in a dinosaur-themed Sentai that is part of the main five.
  • Souji is the only core Kyoryuger who dual wields his Gaburivolver and Gabricalibur in the intro.
  • The actors who play Souji's parents were both former Dynamen.
  • Souji is the only member of the original Kyoryugers to interact with their successors 100 years later. As he was the youngest of his team, this may be because he is the only one alive at that point.
