"Monarch of the Deep Forest! Zyuoh Elephant!"
―Zyuoh Elephant's roll call[src]

Character History

Life in Zyuland

Childhood

Tusk and dad

Tusk stands before the Link Cube with his father.

Tusk's father was a guardian of the Link Cube before him, and the young Tusk would stand alongside him in keeping watch over the Link Cube. Ep. 2: Don’t Underestimate this Planet

Tusk dad reading

Tusk's father reads him a story about an elephant in a Zyuland forest.

As a child, Tusk grew a love for reading books thanks to his father, who would read stories to the young Tusk. Ep. 12: The Short-Nose Elephant

Guarding the Link Cube

Along with Sela, Leo, and Amu, Tusk was assigned as a guardian to the Link Cube, which had been left dormant following the taking of one of the six King's Credentials. As such, Tusk was entrusted with one of the King's Credentials. Ep. 1: The Exciting Animal Land

Tusk grew frustrated with Leo and Amu, who he found to be complacent in their task of guarding the Link Cube, taking issue with Leo's habit of staying up late which would result in him being tired while on duty, and Amu's practice of decorating her guardian's spear with ribbons to make it look cute, leading him to harshly scold them both. Tusk was consoled by Sela, who suggested that while he may be right, there may a better way of getting his point across. Tusk understood Sela's sentiment, but would find executing it easier said than done. Ep. 21: Prison Break

Personality

Tusk is an elephant Zyuman and the most intelligent of the four Zyumans that traveled to the Human World. Though he seems like the sensitive, unapproachable-type, he's actually extremely kind. In addition, he has a sharp sense of smell.

Powers and Abilities

  • Zyuman Power (ジューマンパワー Jūman Pawā): The natural energy of individual Zyumen, they can bestow this energy upon other lifeforms to heal them via a King's Credential, granting the potential to unlock Zyuman powers as a side-effect in humans. However, this would come at the cost of the Zyuman's life force, thus shortening their lifespan. The process is also evidently irreversible.
  • Disguise: After being stranded in the human world, Tusk is granted his own human form by his King's Credential which protects his identity as Zyuman. Following this, Tusk can change from Zyuman to human and back at will. However, his disguise bears one exposing flaw in that he retains his elephant tail.
  • Sixth Sense: As a Zyuman guardian, Tusk can sense malicious presences such as the Deathgalien which are signaled by his tail standing erect.
Tusk smelling sock

Tusk uses his nose to trace Leo's scent via his sock, much to his discomfort.

  • Hyperosmia: As an elephant Zyuman, Tusk possesses an intensely strong sense of smell which he can use to track others. He retains his sense in his human form.
Tusk snout catch

Tusk uses his snout to catch the shutdown switch for Ginis' dome.

  • Prehensile Snout: In his Zyuman form, Tusk can use his trunk as a grasping tool. The trunk can also stretch beyond its usual length to grab items that would normally be out of reach.
  • Earth's Energy: As a defender of all living organisms on Earth, Tusk was bestowed with the Earth's Energy, which not only restored his damaged Zyuoh Changer, but also granted him superpowers, like:
    • Superhuman Strength: Even in their civilian form, the Zyuohgers together were able to punch back Shin Ginis.

Attacks

  • Zyuoh Slash (ジュウオウスラッシュ Jūō Surashhu): After pressing the trigger on the Zyuoh Buster to charge up its energy, Zyuoh Elephant and the other Zyuohgers transform into a giant claw that slashes the opponent.
  • Zyuoh Shoot (ジュウオウシュート Jūō Shūto): After pressing the trigger on the Zyuoh Buster to charge up its energy, Zyuoh Elephant shoots a spinning cube shaped energy blast, similar to the Zyuoh Buster's normal projectile but larger and more solid.

His strength in this form is also enhanced to the point where his bare strikes forms small shockwaves.

Zyuoh Elephant Instinct awaked

Instinct Awakened Mode

In his Instinct Awakened (野性解放 Yasei Kaihō) form, Zyuoh Elephant's boots transform into elephant hooves that can create earthquakes by stomping the ground or shockwaves that send stone debris flying at the enemy.

Zyuoh Elephant, along with the other Zyuohgers in their Instinct Awakened forms, is able to channel his powers along with Zyuoh Gorilla's power into a gigantic fist that Zyuoh Gorilla can use to smash down onto the enemy in his Gorilla Super Punch (ゴリラスーパーパンチ Gorira Sūpā Panchi) attack.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Tusk is portrayed by Tsurugi Watanabe (渡邉 剣 Watanabe Tsurugi). As Zyuoh Elephant and in his Zyuman form, his suit actor is Yuji Nakata (中田 裕士 Nakata Yuji).

Notes

  • Tusk is likely named after Tusker Elephants, a bull-type elephant which is notably larger and with bigger tusks than others of its kind.
  • Tusk is the first Ranger in Super Sentai that is based on a modern elephant; the first Elephant Ranger is MammothRanger, inspired by the ancient woolly mammoth.
  • Tusk is also the second Green Ranger to be in an anniversary season after Don Dogoier.
  • Because of the Elephant trunk designed into the helmet the visor on the Zyuoh Elephant helmet is broken down the middle.
  • Being a member of an Anniversary Sentai Tusk has some similar character and personality Traits to some past Green Rangers.
    • Hikari Nonomura (Toq 4gou) and Hayate (Ginga Green) as all 3 had a serious personality and were the Intellectual Member of their teams and were somewhat the Shadow Leader.
    • Souji Rippukan (Kyoryu Green) as both had a distrustful and harsh mood to one of their teammates at first.
