Takeru Shiba (志葉 丈瑠 Shiba Takeru?) is Shinken Red (シンケンレッド Shinken Reddo?) of the Shinkengers. He is a young man descended from feudal lords, referred to by his vassals and servants as Lord (殿 Tono?).

Biography

Shinkenger

He was raised since childhood by Hikoma Kusakabe to act the role of the 18th head of the Shiba line after his father gave him the Shishi Origami. His upbringing made him create a facade to look very arrogant and proud to others, claiming none can match his strength and greatness while keeping his cool in any situation. Though he was reluctant to have the vassals fight by his side, as he wanted no one else to bear the burden, he allowed their involvement after giving them the choice to turn back or become Shinkengers out of want rather than need, as long they are willing to finish their mission to the last detail.

By the time Genta arrives, Takeru's facade is revealed as he now questions himself of how it makes him strong along with learning he shares similar attributes with Juzo before defeating him. While at times it may not seem like it, Takeru cares a lot about his vassals and when Genta arrives, he becomes more open with them. However, in a fight against Juzo, it is revealed that Takeru started to value his life more which, in Juzo's words, makes him weaker and makes Takeru doubt himself. After Takeru is injured and taken down by Ayakashi Yomotsugari's Onibidama, Kaoru Shiba, the true eighteenth head of the Shiba Clan, appears and reveals herself as the real Shinken Red, thus exposing Takeru as a kagemusha.

It is revealed that the previous Shinken Red could not defeat Dokoku and his army, and decided to leave the task to the next generation. In order to hide the previous lord's unborn daughter, Hikoma Kusakabe recruited Takeru, who was never a samurai but had great fighting abilities and possessed enormous Mojikara, to pose as the eighteenth head of the Shiba Clan in order to hold Kaoru's pursuers at bay. After Kaoru's failed attempt to seal away Dokoku with the sealing character, she resigned as the 18th head and adopted Takeru as her son, which made him the 19th head and therefore allowing him to continue as Shinken Red once more.

Goseiger vs. Shinkenger

Takeru arrived to help Alata to face an army of Nanashi after listening to the hidden alarm of Gedoushuu. Takeru and Alata quickly formed their friendship as both have the same mission to protect Earth.

Alata took Takeru to Amachi's residence, only to find Takeru's kuroko made a mess unintentionally by preparing seat for him, embracing Takeru and told them that he didn't need that. After discussing about what's going on, Takeru and Hikoma called for his crew and had Ryunosuke to arrive first. However, Ryunosuke made a small fight with Agri because he thought that Agri had been rude to Takeru, especially getting worse after Hyde made Goseigers to cosplay as Sengoku period of samurai, making Ryunosuke to think that they were mocking them. As Hikoma received a call about another attack not just from Nanashi that time, Takeru and Ryunosuke alongside Goseigers went to the battlefield.

Chiaki later arrived too during the middle of the fight. However, things were not so helpful after Brajira as Bloodbath Brajira arrived and baited Takeru as Super ShinkenRed to clash against him. The true intention of the commotion was in fact, to kidnap Takeru.

Takeru later met his teammate, with the exception of Genta. But, not the right Takeru as he was brainwashed and turned into Gedou ShinkenRed, wiping out Goseigers alongside his own team. Before his own team were killed, Alata as GoseiRed took the damage instead and received a critical injury because protecting them. Fortunately, Genta and GoseiKnight arrived to stop Takeru with the unintentional combination of Mojikara with Tensou jutsu attack.

Later, Brajira took Takeru to open the seal of Gosei World so he could brought the sea of Sanzu River to destroy Gosei World. But he was held by Goseigers (exclude Alata and GoseiKnight as he was blown away during his way to stop Brajira as Groundion) and Shinkengers (exclude Genta as he was busy to take care of the injured Alata) and permanently freed from brainwash thanks to the recovered Alata (later joining before the team was about to be finished) with the Tensou jutsu that he temporary obtained from Kaoru.

The freed Takeru joined forces all members of his own team and Goseigers (including GoseiKnight) to defeat Brajira. Tensou Sentai Goseiger vs. Shinkenger: Epic on Ginmaku

Takeru Shiba in Super Sentai 199

Months after wiping out the last of the Gedoushu, Takeru fought alongside not only his own team, but every single Sentai ranger in existence, against the Empire of Zangyack when it attacked the Earth in the Great Legend War. Takeru was the one of the first Super Sentai Reds seen engaging a Gormin and Sugormin group. After fighting against hundreds of Gormin and their Sugormin commanders. AkaRenger noticed the fleet moving towards them, he gathered all the Rangers together and gave them the order to sacrifice their powers to wipe out the first invasion's armada.

Dimensional wall - Gekiranger, Go-Onger, Gorenger, Goseiger, Shinkenger

The Shinkengers, alongside the Gekirangers, Go-Ongers, Gorengers (bar Akarenger), and Goseigers, emerge through a dimensional wall.

Takeru, alongside his team (Shinken Gold and Princess Shinken Red were absent), among the majority of the Super Sentai heroes, was caught up in the "Super Hero Taisen" incident which eventually resulted in the Super Sentai teams and Kamen Riders joining forces to defeat both Dai-Zangyack and Dai-Shocker. Ironically, Takeru and his team were acquainted with the Great Leader of Dai-Shocker, Tsukasa Kadoya, also known as Kamen Rider Decade, having encountered him before when he visited their world. During the final battle, he is seen fighting Gryllus Worm, Sea Fist Demon Rageku, and Deratsueigar. Kamen Rider × Super Sentai: Super Hero Taisen

The five-man Shinkenger team was part of a force of Sentai and Rider reinforcements led by Akarenger and Kamen Rider #1Icon-crosswiki that came to assist the Sentai and Riders of recent years who were overwhelmed by the revived monster army of the Space Crime Syndicate MadouIcon-crosswiki. The combined forces of superheroes were able to turn the tide against the Madou army. They lined up and used their various finisher attacks to destroy the revived monsters.

After Demon King PsychoIcon-crosswiki was destroyed and the battle was finally over, the Shinkengers appeared standing on a cliff with all the other heroes who appeared to help, to say goodbye to the heroes of recent years before taking their leave.

Personality

Takeru is the most serious member of his team who generally hides his emotions. He is very cold and strict, especially towards his teammates but cares for them deeply and about their well being. He gradually begins to warm up to them as the series progresses. Due to his strict leadership qualities Takeru is very serious and a no-nonsense person and is also well disciplined. He is very calm and collected but gets angry if anyone harms one of his vessels. Despite being very cold toward his teammates he does love them deep inside his heart and is very proud of them, but won't show his affection in front of them and will always try to hide it due to his stoic nature. He respects everyone and will always be the first one to put himself in danger for his teammates and retainers safety. He values his friends a lot and won't tolerate any harm done to them, a feeling which the others also return.

Hand-Offs

Go-On Red and Shinken Red draw their swords (Road Saber and Rekka Daizantou) and their swords clash, producing a cloud of red smoke. Go-On Red wishes Shinken Red luck, and both Rangers turn their attention toward the viewers. This is the only hand-off thus far where both Reds are not in the "black room" and are interacting in the real world. (In the Magiranger/Boukenger hand-off, only MagiRed was in the real world) GP Final: Road of Justice

Shinken Red puts his Shinkenmaru away when Gosei Red appears within the mirrored hilt walking towards him. Gosei Red pats Shinken Red on the shoulder and runs off while Shinken Red looks on. Closing Act: The Samurai Squadron is Eternal

The Shinken Red Ranger Key (シンケンレッドレンジャーキー Shinken Reddo Renjā Kī?) is Takeru Shiba's personal Ranger Key and what became of his powers after he along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.

GokaiYellowShinkenRedKey

Luka using Takeru's key instead of Kaoru's, which she normally used.

This key along with the majority of the Ranger Keys were collected by the Red Pirates and later used by the Gokaigers. The Shinken Red Ranger Key was mainly used by Captain Marvelous (Gokai Red), who used it to fight as Shinken Red. It was also used by Gai Ikari and Luka Millfy on one occasion each, and by a young unnamed boy who stole the Ranger Key. Marvelous tested the boy, saying he would give him the Ranger Keys if he defeated the Zangyack. He did well against the Gormin, but when the Action Commander beat him, Marvelous reclaimed the Ranger Key and told him to find another way to help.

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. It is presumed that Takeru received his key and became Shinken Red once more.

Shinkenger Zyudenchi

The Super Sentai Zyudenchi (スーパー戦隊獣電池 Sūpā Sentai?, Super Squadron Beast Batteries), alternatively named Legend Sentai Zyudenchi (レジェンド戦隊獣電池 Rejendo Sentai Jūdenchi?, Legend Squadron Beast Batteries) in the toyline, are a special line of Zyudenchi that contain the likeness of the Sentai teams before Kyoryuger (represented by the main Reds). These Zyudenchi are in the same fashion as the "Legend Rider" lines of Collectible DevicesIcon-crosswiki in the Kamen Rider Series.

A Shinkenger Zyudenchi which bears the likeness of Shinken Red is part of the Legend Sentai Zyudenchi toyline which can be used in Super Sentai Battle: Dice-O.

Shinkenger-Ressha

Shinkenger Ressha
(Shishi Ressha)

The Legend Sentai Ressha (レジェンド戦隊レッシャー Rejendo Sentai Ressha?) are Ressha based on the mecha, specifically those belonging to the Red heroes, of the ToQgers' predeceeding Super Sentai teams. They can form a unique combination of ToQ-Oh reminiscent of past Sentai Robos by switching with Red Ressha. The ToQ Changer toy is shown to have sounds for Legend Ressha of all 37 previous Sentai.

The Shinkenger Ressha (シンケンジャーレッシャー Shinkenjā Ressha?) - The Ressha associated with the Shinkengers, based off of Shinken Red's Shishi Origami; when replacing Red Ressha in ToQ-Oh, it forms ToQ-Oh ShinkenOh.

Behind the scenes

Notes

  • Act 31 is the only episode where Takeru didn't start the roll call. It was started by Mako instead.
  • Takeru shares attributes with three other Sentai Reds.
    • He shares the same name with the Red Ranger from the 1987 Series Hikari Sentai Maskman, Takeru, and is the only Red Ranger to share the same name with a predecessor.
    • Likewise similar to Geki of Zyuranger, he was the adopted leader of a clan, not born into leadership but instead becoming the leader due to other circumstances.
    • Similar to Gaku Hoshikawa from 1990 Series Fiveman, he was able to play and practice swords.
  • Takeru and his Samurai counterpart both had fathers who were (respectively) given the Shishi Origami/Lion Folding Zord.
    • Takeru and Jayden also share the same last name.
