Full list of appearances
The Nanashi Company (ナナシ連中, Nanashi Renjū) are the foot soldiers armed with swords and bows that serve the Gedoushu. The Onanashi Company (大ナナシ連中, Ōnanashi Renjū, lit. "Large Nanashi Company") is a subgroup of Nanashi, who are naturally born giant, slithering out from between buildings to fight the Shinkengers while in their Samurai Giant mechs, armed with bidents. The Ozora Nanashi Company (大空ナナシ連中, Ōzora Nanashi Renjū, lit. "Great Sky Nanashi Company) are naturally born giant with a flying variation.
Appearing in the Shinkenger movie are the Kusare Nanashi Company (クサレナナシ連中, Kusare Nanashi Renjū), and the Kusare Onanashi Company (クサレ大ナナシ連中, Kusare Ōnanashi Renjū), who resemble normal Nanashi and Onanashi but in red garbed attire.
In Tensou Sentai Goseiger vs. Shinkenger, the Strengthened Nanashi Company (強化ナナシ連中, Kyōka Nanashi Renjū) and the Strengthened Onanashi Company (強化大ナナシ連中, Kyōka Ōnanashi Renjū) under Shitari resemble normal Nanashi and Onanashi but in black garbed attire.
Like the Ayakashi, the Nanashi exhibit some supernatural powers to a limited extent; one was notable for combining together all of the other foot-soldiers in Sentai into the Combined Combatant, yet could not control the feelings of the other low-ranked foot-soldiers leading to its' destruction.
- The Nanashi Company can be literally translated as "Nameless Company" (名無し連中, nanashi renjū)
