Karakuri Balls (カラクリボール Karakuri Bōru?, lit. Trick Balls) are summoned spheres that contain weapons for Karakuri Giant Senpuujin, Karakuri Giant Gouraijin, Karakuri Giant Tenkuujin, and Super Karakuri Beast Revolver Mammoth. They are summoned using the Shinobi Medals (シノビメダル Shinobi Medaru?).
Karakuri Ball 01: Sword Slasher
The Hurricanegers must fuse the Shinobi Medals on their Hurricane Gyros to make this weapon, but KabutoRaiger has also used a Shinobi medal with "鉾" (halberd) on it. It is a dragon themed sword and the primary weapon of Senpuujin. Its finisher is the Copy Illusion Slash (分身幻斬り, Bunshin Maboroshi Giri) attack where Senpuujin forms two illusionary copies which then slash the opponent three times from different angles. While the Gouraigers have their own copy of the Sword Slasher, they rarely use it, nor does Gouraijin have a special attack with it. In Abaranger vs. Hurricaneger, with their powers combined, their powers helped to create a golden version called the Mahoro Slasher (マホロスラッシャー), which was wielded by Abarenoh, for the Split Drill Slasher attack which is the same finisher that Senpuujin has with this weapon.
Karakuri Ball Combo: Goat Hammer
Combination of Goat Crusher and Tortoise Hammer used for "Goat Hammer Hurricane Comet" (ゴートハンマーハリケン彗星, Gōto Hanmā Harikēn Suisei) attack by using the Goat Cruser to hit the Tortoise Hammer a few times to build up power then hitting it at high speed towards the opponent. Based on a kendama.

When combined with the Double Horn Cutter weapon from Gouraijin's chest, it becomes known as the Axe Cutter (アックスカッター, Akkusu Kattā) . Based on a pinwheel.

He is important to the Hurricanegers and the Gouraigers, as he is vital help in the formation process of Karakuri Giant Gourai Senpuujin's transformation, forming the latters' helmet and fists. In Abaranger vs. Hurricanger, he was used again, but Gourai Senpuujin was beaten and seperating five components and Fūraimaru. He returns in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, once again retaining the ability to combine with a mecha, as he now combines with GokaiOh to form Hurricane GokaiOh.

Legendary Karakuri Balls
An arrow with a sword-like handgrip at the end of its shaft, the keystone of Astrom's Karakuri Ball technology. However, without the Greviving Bow, a weak user goes into a berzerk rage. It was obtained by Sandaru, who eventually used the rage of others to unseal it, and was in Jakanja's hands until the Hurricanegers got it momentarily until Sandaru reclaimed it. After being used, the Raging Arrow got sucked into the vortex it brought about, with the Hurricanegers shooting it out to negate the wormhole. Rather than being marked with a kanji, its Shinobi Medal resembles the pattern of a sand dollar.
A bow that allows the wielder to safely use the Raging Arrow. Known as the Dark Stone (闇石, Yami Ishi), it came to Earth during a meteor shower and became the keystone in the creation of the technologies used by the Hurricanegers and the Gouraigers. It was sealed in Gozen until Sandaaru managed to break the seal and use the Raging Arrow to force the Grieving Bow out. Once used by Boss Tao Zant, the Grieving Bow was regained by the Hurricanegers, who use it to reverse the doomday process. Rather than being marked with a kanji, its Shinobi Medal is marked with a complex hexagonal pattern that was used as the crest of the Space Union Ninja School.
