"NinjaWhite! Tsuruhime!"
―NinjaWhite's roll call[src]

Tsuruhime (鶴姫 Tsuruhime?) is NinjaWhite (ニンジャホワイト Ninja Howaito?), leader of the Kakurangers. She is 15 years old (turns 16 in episode 23 and is 33 by Gokaiger) and is the first female leader of a Sentai.

Biography

Kakuranger

The twenty-fourth protector of the Seal Door, which held the Youkai and is more knowledgeable of the Youkai and their ancestors than her other team members. Tsuruhime is a strong girl who is looking for her missing father, Hakumenrou. Despite not being the Red Ranger, she is the real leader of Kakuranger because of her greater leadership skills than Sasuke. Despite frequent scoldings, Tsuruhime seems to gain respect for Sasuke as the series progresses. Before becoming a Kakuranger, she once fought alongside two other girls, Yukiyo & Tsukiyo, as one of the 'Punishment Sailor Sisters'.

Personality

Out of all 5 Kakurangers, Tsuruhime was the only one to take her duties as a Kakuranger seriously when the group had finally come together. By far the most mature of the team, she was often forced to reign in the antics of her fellow ninja, whch was often met with great frustration. As the group grew closer as a team, Tsuruhime grew to treasure her friends. She most often found herself working alongside Sasuke.

NinjaWhite Ranger Key

The NinjaWhite Ranger Key.

The NinjaWhite Ranger Key (ニンジャホワイトレンジャーキー Ninja Howaito Renjā Kī?) is Tsuruhime's personal Ranger Key and what became of her powers after she along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.

This key along with the majority of the Ranger Keys were collected by the Red Pirates and later used by the Gokaigers. The NinjaWhite Ranger Key was mainly used by Ahim de Famille (Gokai Pink), who used it to fight as NinjaWhite. The key was also used by Luka Millfy (Gokai Yellow) in a commercial for Super Sentai Battle: Dice-O.

The Kakuranger keys, along with all the Ranger Keys of the first 33 Super Sentai, were briefly taken by the Black Cross King and turned into Ranger puppets that were fought by the Gokaigers and the Goseigers. The Kakuranger keys were defeated by Gokai Green. Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. Tsuruhime received her key and became NinjaWhite once more. Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates
