Death

Facing both Kajiki Yellow and Washi Pink in the planet Toki before the other ten Kyurangers arrived, he decided to eliminate both Rangers, as he had deemed both as dangerous as Tsurugi.

Behind the Scenes

Notes

  • His design might be based on Iron pillar of Delhi.

  • This is Hiroshi Tsuchida's first voice role in Super Sentai as a major villain.

  • He has the shortest appearance of all Jark Matter members, rivaling even Eriedrone.
  • His habit of saying "UNACCEPTABLE!" is similar to Onari from Kamen Rider Ghost. Coincidentally, Nobuhiro Mouri, the head writer of Kyuuranger is also a secondary writer for Kamen Rider Ghost.
  • He is Hiroshi Tsuchida's first villainous role that was not a monster of the week.
