Rin Jūken Akugata

Rin Jūken Akugata users, Black Lion Rio, Mere, the Rinshīs, and the Rinrinshī

Rin Jūken Akugata (臨獣拳アクガタ Rin Jūken Akugata?, "Opposing Beast-Fist Akugata")[1] is a fictional school of martial arts practiced by the antagonists in the Japanese Super Sentai series Juken Sentai Gekiranger. This martial arts school focuses on the principles of natural selection, that only those strong enough can survive the harsh and inhuman training while fully mastering the Akugata's fighting styles. Those that master it obtain their power from the negative feelings of the weak they prey on, making it into Rinki (臨気(りんき)?, "Opposing Qi"), a form of Qi that is Geki 's polar opposite and brought about by the darkness in one's heart, used by the Akugata's members to perform Ringi. The ultimate form of Rinki is the Dorinki (怒臨気(どりんき)?, "Anger Opposing Qi"), manifested through infinite rage and a desire to destroy everything.

Rin Jū Hall

Rio (Araki; center) and Mere (Hirata; left) kneel before Rageku (right)

The Rin Jū Hall (臨獣殿 Rin Jū Den?) is the primary location of the practitioners of Rin Jūken Akugata, a dojo on the isolated Rin Jū Mountain. Once under Maku's control, it came under the lead of Rio as he employs many Rinshī and Rinrinshī as soldiers. It later became the base of the Gen Jūken until Rio and Mere left it, burning their base to the ground to shred everything of the Rin Jū Fist from existence.

Rio

Rio (理央?) is the leader of the Rinjūken style, the youngest to lead the Akugata and Rinjū Lion-Ken (臨獣ライオン拳 Rin Jū Raionken?) expert, able to assume the fighting form called Black Lion Rio (黒獅子リオ Kurojishi Rio?), donning black and gold armor made of his own Rinki. His fighting style focuses on raw power. Rio's only interest is in gaining strength, due to a time in his past when a monster murdered his family the night Xia Fu found him and took him under his wing, with Rio making it his sole purpose in life to become stronger so he wouldn't suffer such pain again. While assessing his strength, Rio saw his senior Dan to be an ideal opponent to test his abilities on in vain. Eventually dissatisfied with his progress in the Beast Arts, Rio turned to the Rinjūken Akugata as the means to become strong enough to surpass Dan. Gou, whom Rio came to consider his closest friend, attempted to stop him, only for their friendship to end that day. Surviving Gou's attack, Rio mastered the Akugata and later battled Dan, only to learn that Dan was mortally wounded prior and thus was denied a true win in their battle. But Dan's dying words gives Rio a sense to hope await the coming of his "destined" rival: Jyan.

Setting up base on Rinjū Hall, Rio brought back from the dead the Akugata's ancient warriors, using the Rinrinshī to cause despair and sadness in humanity for power after receiving the Kenmas' Bracelet. To speed up his goal, Rio took the True Poison fang from Braco to revive the Kenma Kata and Rageku. In the process, Rio learned from Kata to acquire Rinki from his own fear and hatred, as well augment it with his jealousy for Dan while under Rageku's guidance. However, Rio is soon told by the two Kenma that the existence of Gekijūken artists, as well as remnants of its training in himself, represent the limit of his power. Rio then, through a Rin Command Ceremony (臨命式 Rinmeishiki?), swearing absolute loyalty to the Rinjūken and the destruction of the Gekijūken school, purging himself of all traces of the Beast Arts.

Though he easily defeats the Gekirangers in battle, he spared them after witnessing Jyan manifesting Kageki, the very same power possessed by Dan. He soon took Xia Fu as a hostage in turn for allowing the Gekirangers incentive to achieve the Kageki power, as Xia Fu claims it would be a much more fulfilling victory. But it was holding Xia Fu hostage, that Rio's fear of his past still haunts in spite of becoming stronger. Rio, refusing to accept the truth, attempted to kill Retu and Ran until Jyan defeats him as Super Geki Red. With their fight leaving him wounded in both body and pride, Rio realized Jyan's relation to Dan and refuses to accept this "humiliating defeat". As a result, and being in a state of rage, he resurrects Maku to learn from him. However, Maku overthrew Rio with no intent to teach him how to master Dorinki, forcing Rio to serve him until his rage of his growth slowing down in power manifests into his own Dorinki. However, Rio's Dorinki was only a spark compared to Maku, leading him to attack Gorie to learn of Jūgenkyō and the power it holds. But after learning he needs the SoZyuTo to enter it, Rio battled Maku upon returning until Mere stopped it and Rio is imprisoned. However, Mere soon frees Rio and presents him the SoZyuTo so he can make his way to Jūgenkyō. Though Maku attempted to punish him, Rio is defiant by saying that he doesn't care about the Kenma or their desires as long as they stay out of his way.

After the awakening of his potential due to SaiDain's Beast Power Blooming, Rio realizes that now he and the others exposed to it are all now stronger than even Maku himself. Confirming it after challenging Geki Red to test his theory that the Gekirangers' potential is also unleashed, Rio tells Geki Red to defeat Maku and end to the war between their mentors so that their own war may commence. Upon Maku's defeat, Rio resumes his place as sole leader of the Rinjū Hall as Long finally reveals himself and offers Rio greater power under Gen Jūken's guidance. At first, Rio didn't believe Long's words that he is destined to become the Genjū King. However, after facing Suugu and revealing his ties to Jyan, Rio undergoes the Blood-Oath Ceremony, gaining a new fighting form, Genjū King Rio (幻獣王リオ Genjūō Rio?), that gives him mastery over the Genjū Gryphon-Ken (幻獣グリフォン拳 Gen Jū Gurifonken?) style. Through the stronger one, Rio spares Jyan and the Gekirangers so the former may train for their final confrontation. Though Rio was later defeated in that battle, it actually allowed him to fully awaken as the Destroyer, his mind corroded into a more animalistic mentally bent on killing everything. In this state he turned into a giant and not even SaiDaioh could stop him, but his feelings for Mere restore him as she tells him that Long used them. After fully learning the truth and that everything he lived for was a lie, a devastated Rio is forced to watch Long abduct Mere, the reason he was able to return to his normal self. But thanks to Jyan's words, Rio gains a new purpose in life and joins the Gekirangers in rescuing Mere and fighting Long as an act of his own will, renouncing his position as the Genjū King in the process.

After Long's defeat, Rio is invited to SCRTC along with Mere. However, only Ran and Retu are reluctant to have them live with them, and so Rio decides to undergo the Fist Judgment with full knowledge that it may kill him in the process. After burning down the Rinjū Hall to symbolize the end of the Rinjūken branch, Rio takes on Retu in the Fist Judgment, with the intention to sacrifice himself. However, Sanyo and a revived Long interrupt the proceedings as Long assumes his true form. After Mere's selfless sacrifice, Rio takes a small remnant of her Ki into himself and decides to eliminate Long, despite Jyan's protests. As a final act, he gives the Gekirangers the last remaining Rinki that was given to him by the Kenma as penance for his deeds, and sacrifices himself in order to stop Long's rampage, promising Jyan a rematch in the future. Upon arriving in the afterlife, he is met by Mere and the two walk off, hand in hand. During the finale, both Rio and Mere guide the three Gekirangers into the Rin Jū Hall and reveal the Kenma before them, showing the path to unifying the two Jūken schools. Rio is later revived during the events of Go-onger vs. Gekiranger, helping in defeating Long Banki before returning to the afterlife a condemned soul soon after as the price of his revival.

His name is a play on leo, the Latin word for "lion".

When entering battle, Rio usually says, "As purely fierce as a lion, as powerful as a lion. The one destined to rule the world, my name is the Black Lion Rio." (丈きこと、獅子のごとく。強きこと、また獅子のごとく。世界を制する者、我が名は黒獅子リオ Takeki koto, shishi no gotoku. Tsuyoki koto, mata shishi no gotoku. Sekai o seisuru mono, waga na wa Kurojishi Rio?). Upon teaming with the Gekirangers to fight Long, Rio rewords his speech, "As purely fierce as a lion, as powerful as a lion. The one who will obliterate the Evil Dragon, my name is the Black Lion Rio." (丈きこと、獅子のごとく。強きこと、また獅子のごとく。邪龍を葬る者、我が名は黒獅子リオ Takeki koto, shishi no gotoku. Tsuyoki koto, mata shishi no gotoku. Jaryū o hōmuru mono, waga na wa Kurojishi Rio?). In Go-onger vs. Gekiranger, Rio uses a shorten version, "As purely fierce as a lion, as powerful as a lion. My name is the Black Lion Rio." (丈きこと、獅子のごとく。強きこと、また獅子のごとく。我が名は黒獅子リオ Takeki koto, shishi no gotoku. Waga na wa Kurojishi Rio?).

Rio is portrayed by Hirofumi Araki (荒木 宏文 Araki Hirofumi?).

Mere

Mere (メレ?) is a user of the Rinjū Chameleon-Ken (臨獣カメレオン拳 Rinjū Kamereonken?) style, which focuses on stealth and accurate attacks. She lived during the GekiRin Rebellion and died. However, ten years before the series, Rio revived her as a Rinrinshī due to having the same need for strength as he does, infusing with enough of his Rinki to be completely human-like. Since then, Mere fell deeply in love with Rio, though the feeling's not mutual, hence she fights only to prove her love to him even if it kills her.

She is cruel and malevolent, and finds satisfaction in intimidating the weak. Mere is the one who carries out the plans and has many other kyonshi Rio brought back at her command, making a few exceptions to perfect herself while arrogantly stating her opponents' fortune of facing her. She possesses a more powerful Beast-Man Form, armed with two sais and able to use her tongue as a weapon. Unfortunately for her, Rio labels this technique as "lacking in both efficiency and force." However, Mere proves her loyalty to Rio when Braco offered her a second chance at life, only to kill him after snapping the three remaining True Poison off him, saying "being by Rio" is life. After this, it seems that Rio might respect her somewhat, as he places her in charge during his absence to revive Kata. Mere eventually began to distrust Kata and his methods, especially when seeing Rio in a madden state of mind, deciding to revive the other Kenma to save Rio. But in an unexpected turn, Mere is recognized by Rageku as being stronger than Rio, eventually becoming a student under Rageku after proving herself by fighting Xia Fu. After Rio's defeat, Mere attempts to restrain him from getting himself killed, realizing that Xia Fu's words about Rio have some truth.

Though saddened to see Rio reduced to serving Maku, she is assured by Long that Rio would be back on top, having her follow Hihi to understand the meaning behind it. When Mere lost face with Rio when she suggested an easy road to gaining Dorinki, Mere is convinced by Long to take out Gou to win back Rio. However, it resulted with her being the first to face and be defeated by Geki Violet, a humiliation that she managed to survive. She is told to obtain the SoZyuTo so Rio can enter Jūgenkyō, with Long forcing her to get the weapon by breaking her personal taboo about dishonesty, gaining her own Dorinki as a result. Once she frees Rio, she accompanies him to Jūgenkyō, where her potential is unlocked due to SaiDain's Beast Power Blooming, despite being undead. She joins Rio in learning how to harness the power Genjūken offers, undergoing the Blood-Oath Ceremony which resulted in her being reborn as a Mythical General with mastery over the Genjū Phoenix-Ken (幻獣フェニックス拳 Genjū Fenikkusuken?) style, which focuses on fire-based attacks.

Eventually, growing suspicious of Long's motives conflicting with Rio's, Mere investigates him to uncover his true agenda. Once learning the truth from interrogating Sanyo, Mere manages to save Rio from Long's scheme and carry him away. Despite her valiant efforts to protect Rio, though, Long manages to knock Mere unconscious, and she is taken hostage to be tortured by Long himself. However, she is rescued by both the Gekirangers and a motivated Rio, who finally reciprocates her feelings towards him. Seeing Rio purging the Genki from his body, she renounces her position as a Genshou as an act of love before joining the Gekirangers in fighting Long to return the favor for saving her. After Long was supposedly defeated, Mere was invited to live at SCRTC along with Rio.

However, both Ran and Retu still had reservations about the two of them being there because of their actions. To rectify this, she decides to undergo the Fist Judgment to cleanse herself of her sins, knowing full well that her life may be sacrificed in the process. After reminiscing about the time she spent in Rinjū Hall before it was burned to the ground by Rio, she takes on Ran in the Fist Judgment, intending to end her life. However, Long's interference changed the scenario as she pushes the Gekirangers out of the way to receive a fatal injury from Long's jaws. After some parting words to Rio, she dies in his arms; her body turning to dust as her soul awaited him at the other side. During the finale, Mere, alongside Rio, guides the three Gekirangers inside an astral Rinjū Hall, revealing the Kenma before them and showing the path to unifying the two Jūken schools. Mere is later revived during the events of Go-onger vs. Gekiranger, risking her immortal soul to fight by Rio's side once more.

Her name is taken from the English word chameleon (カメレオン kamereon?).

Before entering battle, Mere says, "For Lord Rio's love I live, for Lord Rio's love I fight as his love warrior. Rinjū Chameleon-Ken Mistress, Mere!" (理央様の愛のために生き、理央様の愛のために戦うラブウォリアー。臨獣カメレオン拳使いメレ! Rio-sama no ai no tame ni iki, Rio-sama no ai no tame ni tatakau rabu woriā. Rinjū Kamereonken tsukai Mere!?).

Mere is portrayed by Yuka Hirata (平田 裕香 Hirata Yuka?).

Bae

Bae (バエ?) is actually a practitioner of the Gekijū Fly-Ken (激獣フライ拳 Gekijū Furaiken?) style, which utilizes the user's words into Geki . He fought Mere while he was watching a giant battle during the time of the GekiRin Rebellion, and ending up being eaten by her after he assumed his anthropomorphic fly form upon performing an imperfect version of the forbidden Gekiwaza in a vain attempt to take her down. However, the residual energy Rio used to bring Mere back to life had unintentionally resurrected Bae as well for only a limited amount of time. As a result, Bae's life is dependent on Mere and being away from her for too long can prove fatal. He usually stays within her stomach, but when a battle between the Geki Beasts and a giant Beast-Man begins, he gets out by impulse and acts as a commentator for the battle, rooting for Geki Tohja and Geki Fire, until it ends and Mere eats him again. He also acts as a sort of unwanted confidant for Mere, which aggravates her to no end, even though she keeps him around out of pride. As a Gekijūken user, he is a well of knowledge when it comes to the Beast Arts, knowing the Fist Saints well and vice-versa. The Kensei, except for Sha Fu and Sharkie, accused him as a traitor until the truth is revealed when Bae helped Gou to overcome his werewolf side even though he died as a result. However, Mere revived Bae because Bae was resurrected by Rio, and therefore was part of her love for him. When Bae brought the Gekirangers to save her, Mere has a change of heart for Bae and treats him like an equal soon after. Furthermore, due to Mere's purging herself of Genki, what remained of it entered Bae, giving him a true life. After the final battle, Bae tags along with Gou as he sets off on on his own journey. They both say their farewells to Jyan before heading off, with Bae ending up in India until he returns in the climax of Go-Onger Vs. Gekiranger to commentate on the giant battle against Long Banki. Xia Fu said that his motto is "There is training while speaking" (喋りの中に修行あり Shaberi no naka ni shugyō ari?). His name is a play on the Japanese word for "fly" (ハエ hae?).

Bae is voiced by Akira Ishida (石田 彰 Ishida Akira?).

Rinshīs

The Rinshīs (リンシーズ Rinshīzu?, 1-36, 47, 49) are the Jiang Shi warriors revived by Rio performing the Ringi technique "Rinzai". The Rinshī are in turn led by Mere, who is in charge of their development in some cases, being low-level users in the Akugata, they wear masks formed by a hat and a blindfold and use lances as their weapons. If a Rinshī can cross through the Chamber of Trials (試しの房 Tameshi no Bō?), defeating the other Rinshī inside single-handed, he/she can remove the mask and the animal motif on the forehead materializes, with the Rinshī receiving new attire and promoted to the more powerful rank of Rinrinshī who can assume "Beast-Man" form for a tentative amount of time. When they die, their bodies petrify and explode in violent bluish flames. Maku send in the entire army to face the rangers. In the aftermath of Maku's defeat, only one Rinshī remained whom Mere assigned the task of finding her a gem. Finding the Raspberry Diamond, the Dropout Rinshī (おちこぼれリンシー Ochikobore Rinshī?) dons Butoka armor and obtains the item before Mere enables him to use his full power. But a frustrated Ken arrives in SaiDaiOh and easily destroys the last Rinshī. The Rinshī are later revived by Long as his personal army, using them to fight the Gekirangers. The Dropout Rinshi is voiced by Katsumi Shiono (塩野 勝美 Shiono Katsumi?).

The Three Kenma

The Three Kenma (三拳魔 San Kenma?, "Kenma" literally translates as "Fist Demon") are the opposing force to the Kensei, based at the Rinjū Mountain (臨獣山 Rin Jū Zan?) which the Rinjū Hall is built on. The three who composed this group were all originally human under the teachings of Brusa Ee along with the future Kensei. But their opposing ideals of fear and rage as an ideal source of power, combined with Maku's grudge against their mentor, led to them mastering the Beast-Man Wicked Body Change that turned them into their current forms prior to murdering Brusa Ee and becoming founding masters of the Akugata itself, with a high need for mass amounts of Rinki as a result of their transformation and level of power. Losing the Geki-Rin Rebellion, the Kenma were killed by the Kensei using SouZyuTo after sacrificing their humanity in the process. Once their bodies were sealed away, the Kenma' souls were each sealed within a ring of the Kenma Bracelet (拳魔の腕輪 Kenma no Udewa?) created by the Kensei, which serves as a medium for the three to communicate with others at certain times.

But every 5,000 years, the Bracelet's power could be sealed if the item is brought to sacred grounds of Jūgenkyō. Miki attempted this task but Makirika's interference allowed the item to fall into Rio's possession, using it to speak to the Kenma. After obtaining the three final True Poison fangs from Braco, Rio began to resurrect the Kenma, starting with Kata, to train him. Mere, fearing for Rio's sanity due to Kata's training, managed to revive Rageku for Rio to train from instead. Both Kata and Rageku have no intent to fight again and saw Rio and Mere as the ones to carry their legacy in their stead. Maku however, whose resurrection was much harder to perform as his heart was removed from his body, refused to retire and upon being revived, took over and declared a second Geki-Rin Rebellion with Rageku and Kata once more following Maku out of fear. In the end, all three are killed once again as Long had planned. However, as Jyan now possesses the Kenma' Bracelet, the three Kenma offer their aid, appearing to the Gekirangers in their original human forms, to master their fighting styles to end Long's evil once and far all.

Kata

Sky Kenma Kata (空の拳魔カタ Sora no Kenma Kata?) is a grand master of the Rin Jū Hawk-Ken (臨獣ホーク拳 Rin Jū Hōkuken?), whose fighting style focuses on aerial martial arts and genjustsu attacks on the opponent's psyche with a halberd named the Gale Sword (疾風の剣 Shippū no Tsurugi?) as his weapon. His source of power comes from hatred and malice. Kata is the first of the Kenma to reveal the location of his tomb, a large stone protected by a Geki barrier erected by Xia Fu on a wind-ridden summit of a mountain bombarded by lighting. Kata was impressed with Rio's ideals of power as absolute and success at reviving him. Upon his rebirth, Kata awards Rio by giving him training which would prove the right of the "lion cub" (若獅子 Wakajishi?) to lead the Rin Jū Hall. However, Kata's motto is "There is training in a battle to the death" (死闘の中に修行あり Shitō no naka ni shugyō ari?). Though Kata is defeated (Rio breaking free from Kata's illusion ended up doing enough damage to hi that it left him at Rio's mercy), his life is spared by Rio, whom Kata approved as his student, teaching him the means to acquire Rinki from his malice and hatred. However, Kata's brutal training methods entices fear in Mere for Rio's well being. With Rageku resurrected, Kata gives her his blessing in training Rio before departing to Rin Jū Mountain on stand by. Both he and Rageku intend to celebrate their student's victory over the Gekirangers' defeat by destroying the city, until they sense Rio's defeat by Super Geki Red. Kata vainly pleaded with the enraged Rio not to revive Maku, who beats him and Rageku up after his rebirth. During the burning of the Beast Origin Village, Kata faces the Gekirangers as he presented the boulder that the Fist Sages are turned into and enrages the Super Gekirangers and Geki Violet into fighting him, withstanding their strongest attacks. But Jyan mananges to overcome Kata's illusions, enraging the Kenma to enlarge and battle Geki Fire and Geki Tohja Wolf, who are no match for him. Kata is about to kill them when SaiDain charges in and Kata is the first to fall to SaiDaiOh's blade, exploding in a burst of golden energy. His Rinki is transferred to Ran in the finale by Rio, who utilizes it to merge her own style with his, unifying both Beast Fist styles.

Before entering battle, Kata says, "Hatred is power givingly born. Sky Kenma, Rin Jū Hawk-Ken's Kata!" (憎しみが力を生む。空の拳魔 臨獣ホーク拳のカタ! Nikushimi ga chikara o umu. Sora no Kenma, Rin Jū Hōkuken no Kata!?).

Kata is voiced by Rokurō Naya (納谷 六朗 Naya Rokurō?).

Rageku

Sea Kenma Rageku (海の拳魔ラゲク Umi no Kenma Rageku?) is a grand mistress of the Rin Jū Jelly-Ken (臨獣ジェリー拳 Rin Jū Jerīken?), a style that allows its user to let opponents' physical attacks pass right through, neutralizing them. Her training is based on jealousy and envy, targeting Master Xia Fu, whom she refers to as "Darling" (ダーリン Dārin?) as he spurred her romantic feelings for him in the past. She addresses other people of lower status using the informal "-chan" (ちゃん?) suffix, as opposed to "-san" (さん?). Rageku is the second of the Kenma to be revived, with Mere's help, buried at the bottom of the deep-sea beyond light and sound. She instructs both Rio and Mere, teaching them to use their envy to become much more powerful. Both she and Kata intended to celebrate their student's victory over the Gekirangers' defeat by destroying the city, until they sensed Rio's defeat by Super Geki Red. Rageku vainly pleaded with the enraged Rio not to revive Maku, who beats her and Kata up after his rebirth.

During the Beast Origin Village incident, Rageku uses her power to send the Gekirangers, Rio, and Mere back into the Edo era before incinerating the area in an attempt to destroy SaiDain. She later battled Geki Chopper and was nearly killed by him after he managed to overcome her defenses. Though she evaded death at the hands of the Gekirangers, she is eventually murdered by Long as Maku battles the Gekirangers; turned into a puddle of her former self upon realizing Long's true nature as he takes her broken staff as proof of her demise. Her Rinki is transferred to Retu by Rio, who utilizes it to merge her style with his own, unifying the two schools.

Before entering battle, Rageku says, "Envy is power bestowed. Sea Kenma, Rin Jū Jelly-Ken's Rageku!" (嫉妬が力をくれる。海の拳魔 臨獣ジェリー拳のラゲク! Shitto ga chikara o kureru. Umi no Kenma, Rin Jū Jerīken no Rageku!?).

Rageku is voiced by Naoko Kouda (幸田 直子 Kōda Naoko?).

Maku

Land Kenma Maku (大地の拳魔マク Daichi no Kenma Maku?) is a grand master of the Rin Jū Bear-Ken (臨獣ベアー拳 Rin Jū Beāken?), a style that focus on brute force and attacks with a set of bear-like claws that he extends from his wrists. He draws power burning rage to give him tremendous Dorinki, allowing Maku to have reigned over the Rin Jū Hall as its leader and greatest warrior, transferring a bit of his power into selected servants. He is even acknowledged by the Fist Sages as the most powerful Beast-Ken user. In the past, he and Xia Fu were friends until their master, Brusa, picked Xia Fu as his successor. Xia Fu refused and asked for Maku to become the successor instead, with the latter infuriated that he was not chosen by his own talents but by another. Since then, Maku vowed to become the strongest being on Earth, resulting with Maku meeting Long and then finding the Akugata which value his ideals as well as being the one responsible for Brusa's death. Though he was originally to become the Destroyer as Long planned, Maku's defeat in the Fierce-Confrontation Rebellion ruined that as the Kenma's body was placed within the depths of Rin Jū Hall behind a sealed door. But the door was unsealed when Rio attempted to resurrect him against Kata and Rageku's wishes. However, he learns that the final True Poison fang alone is not able to revive him as the Fist Sages removed Maku's heart, a ruby called the Ikigimo (イキギモ(生肝) Ikigimo?, literally "Life Organ") to make sure his resurrection would be impossible. By accident, the item ended up in the possession of Alice Nanboku, labeled the "Ocean's Heart." Once Mere obtained the item, Rio places it back into Maku's body before resurrecting the Kenma successfully. But upon being revived, as the other Kenma feared, Maku expresses disgust with the changes that occurred while he was dead and overthrows the "brat" (小僧 kozō?), Rio, resuming his role as leader and declaring a new Fierce-Confrontation Rebellion.

But his arrogance at refusing to teach Rio eventually leads to Rio obtaining the Dorinki on his own and going to the Beast Origin Village to perfect his power so he can destroy Maku. However, Maku is aware of Rio's treason and where he is going, only to be halted by Long. Maku arrives at the Beast Origin Village to kill Rio, only to be further enraged by Rio's disrespect for him in spite of their current differences in power. Both that and the Fist Sages' scolding for his betrayal and flaws in ideals resulted with Maku enlarging himself to kill them before the Gekirangers attempt to fight him in vain with Geki Fire, gaining the Kenma's attention with their disrespect to him. But the Fist Sages intervened so the Gekirangers can stop Rio from getting to SaiDain, all ending up being defeated and sealed into a boulder so Maku can siphon most of their life energy in the form of water droplets, drinking it after Kata's death to become even more powerful. But Maku's obbession was his undoing when he goes after the Gekirangers to prove to Rio his superiorty once and for all after Rio proves able to match him blow for blow when from the power he gained from SaiDain's Beast Power Blossom. In the final battle, Maku fights SaiDaiOh to a standstill, only to be destroyed by SaiDaiGeki Fire while refusing to accept this defeat. His Rinki is transferred to Jyan by Rio in the finale, who utilizes it to merge both Fierce and Confrontation styles together and unifying the two schools.

Before entering battle, Maku says, "Rage is the power to dominate. Land Kenma, Rin Jū Bear-Ken's Maku!" (怒りで力を司る。大地の拳魔 臨獣ベアー拳のマク! Ikari de chikara o tsukasadoru. Daichi no Kenma, Rin Jū Beāken no Maku!?).

Maku is voiced by Hidekatsu Shibata (柴田 秀勝 Shibata Hidekatsu?).

Beast-Men

When a fighter of the Akugata performs the Ringi Beast-Man Wicked Body Change, he/she turns into a Beast-Man (獣人 Jūjin?), a fighting form of the Rinrinshī that resembles his/her Rin Jūken style's animal and allow him/her to fully utilize that style's Ringi. They are each named putting the first kana of their beast's Japanese name at the end of it (Kamakiri (カマキリ?) is Japanese for Praying mantis).

Rinrinshī

The Rinrinshī (リンリンシー Rinrinshī?) are high ranking Rinshī who pass the Chamber of Trials (試しの房 Tameshi no Bō?), allowed to remove the mask as the animal signature to his/her fighting style forms on the forehead and gain a new attire to signal the rank. Rinrinshī can obtain Beast-Man form, but only for a short among of time depending on the level of Rinki amassed inside. However, the Rinrinshī empowered by Maku's power can assume Beast-Man form for an indefinite amount of time. Like the Rinshī, the Rinrinshī die as their bodies petrify and explode in violent bluish flames.

  • Template:Makirika: The first Rinrinshī the Gekirangers faced, master of the Rinjū Mantis-Ken (臨獣マンティス拳 Rinjū Mantisuken?) style which allows him to cut through any material with his forearms. Due to his fighting style, Makirika tends to calls an enemy's death a "prayer". Makirika is sent to retrieve the "Kenma Bracelet" from Miki before she could make it to the Beast Origin Village, with Jyan caught in the crossfire. He later attacked the city and was man-handled by Jyan before being easily defeated non-violently by Master Xia Fu, but, obtaining a second chance with Mere's help, unconcerned with the detrimental side effects of her Infinite-Violent Wave Ringi as he tore down the dam to flood the city and invoke fear on the masses. In the end, he is destroyed by Geki Tohja's Great Firm-Firm Fist. Voiced by Hiroshi Tsuchida (土田 大 Tsuchida Hiroshi?).
  • Template:Gyuuya: A user of the Rinjū Buffalo-Ken (臨獣バッファロー拳 Rinjū Baffarōken?) style who just got promoted to the rank of Rinrinshī after he passed the Chamber of Trials. His fighting style emulates the buffalo's raw power to deliver destructive charges to the opponent. With his powerful thighs and Rinki-charged horns, Gyuuya can easily break through solid walls. He overpowered Jyan in round one, but is forced to retreat as he was not used to being a Rinrinshī. After enough training, Gyuuya returned to resume the fight, only be beaten by the new attacks Jyan learned from passing the Cleaning Training Xia Fu put him through. Though he assumed to have defeated Geki Tohja, Gyuuya is destroyed once he unknowing helped Geki Tohja in using the Great Firm-Firm Leg. Voiced by Masaharu Satō (佐藤 正治 Satō Masaharu?).
  • Five Venom-Ken (五毒拳 Godokuken?): The Elite Five of the Rinjū Hall, masters of the Rinjūken styles of venomous animals, designed after the Five Deadly Venoms. They each wear a sash as proof of their higher rank above novice Rinrinshī. They arrived in Lesson 3 at Rio's call to destroy the Gekirangers, which they saw as a "waste of their talents" after easily beating them. However, their defeat by the Gekirangers in the Poison Match enraged the Venom-Ken. But it turned out that Rio had a second, hidden motive in summoning the Venom-Ken: To kill the one who possess the Ringi technique True Poison, the "ultimate poison", and take it as his own.
    • Kademu (カデム Kademu?): The user of the Rinjū Centipede-Ken (臨獣センチピード拳 Rinjū Senchipīdoken?), a style that, inspired in the number of legs of this insect, allows its practicer to deliver a hundred light-speed hits in one second, hence Kademu's nickname "Multi-Handed King of Hell" (地獄の手数王 Jigoku no Tekazu Ō?). His venom causes terrible pain. As a white-sash wearing warrior excelling in speed, Kademu has become hasty in everything he does, rushing the result of everything he is involved in. He is the first of the Venom-Ken to fight the Gekirangers on his own in Lesson 5, only to fight Geki Yellow in a Thousand-Ken Many Strikes (千拳万打 Senkenmanda?) competition, but ultimately lost to her because of her accuracy and speed. Infuriated, he removed the bag-hood upon enlarging to show his full power only to be destroyed by Geki Tohja's Great Firm-Firm Fist. He is resurrected in Lesson 9 by Braco along with Moriya in an assassination attempt to Rio. However, Mere protected Rio and Rio fought back, killing Kademu with his Splitting Fist. Voiced by Yoshimitsu Shimoyama (下山 吉光 Shimoyama Yoshimitsu?).
    • Moriya (モリヤ Moriya?): The "Unconfrontable Delusion Disturber" (対応不能の惑乱者 Taiō Funō no Wakuransha?), a talkative user of the Rinjū Gecko-Ken (臨獣ゲッコー拳 Rinjū Gekkōken?) style which emphasizes on hit & run attacks with unexpected movement & reactions, along with the ability to walk freely on walls and ceilings, just like a gecko. Wearing a green sash, Moriya is capable of walking on any surface because of his Ringi which transfers most of his Rinki onto to his feet, allowing him to walk on walls as if there were multiple microscopic hairs on his soles. As he is constantly over others' heads, he thinks of the walls as "his world" and looks down to others. His venom induces paralysis, giving the infected five agonizing minutes to live if the antidote is not administered in time. He challenges the Gekirangers in Lesson 6. At first, he had the upper hand until Retu managed to beat Moriya at his own element before the Venom Fist member is destroyed by Geki Tohja's Great Firm-Firm Fist. He is resurrected in Lesson 9 by Braco along with Kademu in an assassination attempt to Rio. When Kademu is killed, Moriya ran away and started attacking the city, out of fear for Rio's retribution, to gather as much Rinki for himself as he can before Rio finds him. He is later defeated by the Gekirangers' Geki Bazooka. Voiced by Kōichi Sakaguchi (坂口 候一 Sakaguchi Kōichi?).
    • Sorisa (ソリサ Sorisa?): The "Dancer of Terror" (戦慄の踊り子 Senritsu no Odoriko?), Sorisa is a red-sash wearing user of the Rinjū Scorpion-Ken (臨獣スコーピオン拳 Rinjū Sukōpionken?) which is known for using a combination of dances and kicks that emulate the tail of a scorpion. Her venom induces fever. She attacks the Gekirangers in Lesson 7, to which the Gekirangers respond with a similar dance based technique but Maga interferes, finally convincing Sorisa that they must join forces to combine their strengths. However, as Sorisa had never worked with a partner, her sudden alliance/love relationship with Maga, who impressed her with his new attitude, made her change into a completely submissive woman until he is killed. She is destroyed by Geki Tohja's Great Spin-Spin Leg. Voiced by Shinobu Adachi (安達 忍 Adachi Shinobu?).
    • Maga (マガ Maga?): The "Steel-Wall Defender" (鋼鉄鉄壁の守護者 Kōtetsu Teppeki no Shugosha?), a yellow-sash wearing user of the Rinjū Toad-Ken (臨獣トード拳 Rinjū Tōdoken?) style who emphasizes on an iron body defense. The Toad Fist allows its practicer to neutralize the ability to feel pain, as well as develop a strong and hard body. Body and mind of lead, extremely dim-witted. His venom induces chills. In Lesson 7, it is revealed that he is in love with Sorisa, and that he would do anything for her love. He is also extremely protective of Sorisa, as he viciously attacked the Rangers after he mistook Sorisa throttling Geki Blue for a bout of hugging and kissing. After getting advice from Mere, Maga toughens up and convinces Sorisa to join him in creating a deadly combination of their abilities. Just as a tadpole transforms into a toad, Maga, after fulfilling his love, dramatically changed his personality into an arrogant strong louse. He is destroyed when his barrier is penetrated by a shot from the Geki Bazooka. Voiced by Takashi Nagasako (長嶝 高士 Nagasako Takashi?).
    • Braco (ブラコ Burako?): A Rinjū Snake-Ken (臨獣スネーク拳 Rinjū Sunēkuken?) style warrior who is the leader of the group and wears a blue sash.

His venom induces nausea. His weapons are the Mysterious Snake Blades (妖蛇刀 Yōjatō?), twin crescent blades. Just as a snake sometimes devours prey much bigger than itself, Braco sought the much bigger authority Rio had over them, especially after being assaulted by Rio, leading to his assassination attempt. In Lesson 9 he reveals his intentions of assassinating Rio to take over the Rin Jū Hall and restore it, but Mere killed him, only for Braco to use the True Poison on his right thumb to obtaining a real life. After disposing of Mere after she refused his bribe in joining his scheme, Braco revived Kademu and Moriya to aid him. But Mere's interference ruins the plan, and is now able to counter Braco's attack. Though he offered Mere a true life, she snapped the three last True Poison off his fingers and killed him using her tongue as a stake to stab through Braco, causing him to explode in crimson flames. He dies questioning Mere if simply being with Rio is enough to sacrifice a chance at life. Voiced by Kunihiko Yasui (安井 邦彦 Yasui Kunihiko?).
  • Muzankose (ムザンコセ Muzankose?): A user of the Rinjū Pangolin-Ken (臨獣パンゴリン拳 Rinjū Pangorinken?) style with a Rinki-charged nigh-impenetrable scale armor, calling himself the "Rinki Boulder" (臨気宿せし巨岩 Rinki Yadoseshi Kyogan?) and known to others as the "Rock-Hard Destroyer" (磐石たる破壊神 Banjaku taru Hakaishin?). After developing such hard scales, Muzankose turned into a more squarish character, using very stilted speech. He is the first Rinrinshī to actually defeat Geki Tohja in battle before resuming his actual mission, to cause an earthquake to destroy the city in order to gather enough Ringi for Kata upon his resurrection. Muzankose is the first to fight Geki ElephanTohja, only to be defeated by the Great Firm-Firm Ball attack. Voiced by Yōsuke Akimoto (秋元 羊介 Akimoto Yōsuke?).
  • Nagiu (ナギウ Nagiu?): A user of the Rinjū Eel-Ken (臨獣イール拳 Rinjū Īruken?), able to generate a Rinki-charged slime all over his body that can slip past any attack.

Voiced by Keiichi Nanba (難波 圭一 Nanba Kiichi?).
  • Eruka (エルカ Eruka?): A Rinjū Frog-Ken (臨獣トード拳 Rin Jūjōdoken?) Eruka is able to use similar attacks to Maga. Eruka is the first to fight all three Juken Armaments of Geki Tohja and be destroyed by their Beast-Ken Armament Triangle Attack. Voiced by Ryuzou Ishino (石野 竜三 Ishino Ryūzō?).
  • Tabū (タブー Tabū?): A dim-witted user of the Rinjū Pig-Ken (臨獣ピッグ拳 Rinjū Pigguken?) style, Mere recruits Tabū in finding the Ikigimo as his style relies on a sense of smell so refined that he can smell a single grain of rice within a 5 km range. Once possessing the item, Mere lets Tabū do what he wants with Alice, namely roasting her alive for his lunch. But Jyan saves her and the Gekirangers battle the Beast-Man. However, Tabū's fat acts as an insulating cushion that allows him to withstand Geki Fire's fists, leading to his defeat at Geki SharkFire's blades. Voiced by Taichirō Hirokawa (広川 太一郎 Hirokawa Taichirō?).
  • Mārashiya (マーラシヤ Mārashiya?): A Rinrinshī Rinjū Porcupine-Ken (臨獣ポーキュパイン拳 Rinjū Pōkyupainken?) user who can use his Ringi to poison the minds of those who he strikes with his quills, as seen when Ran becomes a delinquent.

  • Hihi (ヒヒ Hihi?): A Rinjū Baboon-Ken (臨獣バブーン拳 Rinjū Babūnken?) user and Maku's personal guard, sent to herald the start of the new Fierce-Confrontation Rebellion. Because Maku infused him with his Dorinki, Hihi can maintain his Beast-Man form as if he is a living Beast-Man. His fighting style involves quick jumps and biting attacks, using trees for leverage while laughing "Hehhihihi". Though defeated by Geki BatFire, an enraged Hihi assumes a stronger "Dorinki"-powered form as a result, wounding the Gekirangers. The Gekirangers are forced to later fight him in their regular forms, barely able to get him with the Geki Bazooka before using Geki Tohja. This leads to Hihi crippling Geki Tohja by focusing his rage on the right leg, injuring Ran to the point of losing concentration as Geki Wolf arrives to the team's aid, forming Geki Tohja Wolf to destroy Hihi. Voiced by Bin Shimada (島田 敏 Shimada Bin?), who voiced Satorakura in Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger.
  • Pouōte (ポウオーテ Pōōte?): A Rinjū Archerfish-Ken (臨獣アーチャーフィッシュ拳 Rinjū Āchāfisshuken?) user subservient to Rageku and received Maku's Dorinki. Geki Fire and Geki Tohja Wolf were fighting him until Long uses his power to turn Gou on the others, allowing Pouōte to resume his mission. Geki Blue and Geki Yellow fought him on their own while Jyan is keeping the werewolfed Gou hurting people. Soon after, a restored Geki Violet arrives and defeats Pouōte, who enlarges and dies fighting Geki Tohja Wolf, with Geki Fire as its backup. Voiced by Dai Matsumoto (松本 大 Matsumoto Dai?).
  • Niwa (ニワ Niwa?): A Rinjū Crocodile-Ken (臨獣クロコダイル拳 Rinjū Kurokodairuken?) user, his fighting style emulates the reckless brute force of a crocodile. One of Rio's top five Rinrinshī, Niwa is confident of being able to defeat the Gekirangers singlehandly without Maku's power. Niwa overpowered Geki Blue, Geki Yellow, and Geki Violet until Jyan arrived, with Ken's interference halting the fight for now. In the second round, he fought the three Gekirangers again until Super Geki Red arrived with Ken transforming into Geki Chopper for the first time, whose blade attacks penetrated Niwa's armored body and destroyed him. Voiced by Keikō Sakai (酒井 敬幸 Sakai Keikō?).
  • Chouda (チョウダ Chōda?): A Rinjū Ostrich-Ken (臨獣オーストリッチ拳 Rinjū Ōsutoritchiken?) user subservient to Kata. His fighting style emulates the ostrich's fast speeds, using his abilities to cause massive property damage. Chouda battles Geki Red, Geki Yellow, and Geki Violet by himself, faking his true abilities until the gang realized too late after he knocked Mere away for her interference, until he is defeated by a team attack between Geki Violet, Super Geki Red, and Super Geki Yellow in an attempt to quickly take him out. He then enlarges and battles Geki Tohja Wolf, overpowering it until Geki Gazelle arrives. The gang form Geki BatFire and with Geki Tohja Wolf destroys Chouda. However, seconds before he dies, Chouda creates an egg that burrows underground and eventually hatches into a new Chouda, having a more serious persona and greater power. Furthermore, because of the attacks his predecessor took, the new Chouda is immune to the attacks of Geki Red, Geki Yellow, Geki Blue, and Geki Violet. However, Geki Chopper is the exception, able to defeat the Beast-Man with the Super Gekirangers and Geki Violet. But Chouda enlarges and battles Geki Fire, who destroys him for good.

Geki Red and Geki Chopper attempt to fight Tsuneki, only to be easily defeated due to the Ringi's effect on its user. However, Shinichi's plan for Geki Chopper to use the Super SaiBlade and take Geki Red's Kageki into his body allowed them to win and negating the barrier before it exploded. Tsuneki enlarged, only to be destroyed by Geki ElephantFire. Voiced by Yasuhiro Takato (高戸 靖広 Takato Yasuhiro?).

  • Maga's Toad-Ken Style: Mudball Bombs (泥玉弾 Deigyokudan?) which allows the user to throw his warts as though they were grenades.
    • Oily Body-Armor (体油包 Taiyūpao?): Maga's secret Ringi that allows him to produce a gelatinous liquid from his body that congeals into a powerful shield that is impervious to almost all attacks. It is eventually penetrated by the Geki Bazooka, resulting in Maga's demise.
  • Braco's Snake-Ken Style: Mysterious Snake Cut (妖蛇斬 Yōjazan?) and Serpent Cannon (大蛇砲 Daijahō?).
    • True Poison (真毒 Madoku?): Braco is the Venom-Ken user that possessed the True Poison, the most powerful secret Ringi. It is referred to as the "Ultimate Poison" or the "Poison of the Dead." The True Poison allows its user to change his/her fingernails into serpent fangs that possess a venom so powerful and pure that as it can take the life of a living being, it can give life to those who are long dead, even Rinrinshīs. Rio sought the Ringi because of its power to give actual life. Braco possessed 6 fangs and he used the first on himself after being killed by Mere, then two on Kademu and Moriya. Mere managed to obtain the last three before killing Braco in order for Rio to revive the Three Kenma once he found the location of their bodies.
  • Muzankose's Pangolin-Ken Style: The Pangolin-Ken style involves curling up into a ball and trampling the enemy, as well as relying on his natural armor to resist attacks. The main Ringi is Attacking Steel Ball (征鋼丸 Seikōgan?), and its variations: Attacking Steel Ball, Erratic Violence Technique (征鋼丸暴乱技 Seikōgan Bōrangi?) and Ultimate Attacking Steel Ball (超絶征鋼丸 Chōzetsu Seikōgan?).
  • Nagiu's Eel-Ken Style: Greasy-Stream Wave (粘流波 Nenryūha?), and Greasy-Stream Bullet (粘流弾 Nenryūdan?) allow Nagiu to secrete huge volumes of Rinki-charged slime, thus causing attacks to slide harmlessly off him, or even send his foes slipping away. Eel Climbing (鰻昇り Unagi Nobori?) and Eel Strangulation (鰻締め Unagi Jime?) allow Nagiu to strangle and constrict his opponent.
  • Flying-Ken (飛翔拳 Hishōken?): Wicked Spinning Encounter (邪悪輪遇 Jaakuringū?) and Destroying Red-Top Kick (破死兜丹頂脚 Hashibuto Tanchō Kyaku?) were team attacks used by the Flying-Ken. In Wicked Spinning Encounter, Rasuka and Rūtsu hurl their dart-like feathers at the victims, while in Destroying Red-Top Kick, they perform a simultaneous high-flying kick at the victim, in the same spot.
    • Rasuka's Crow-Ken Style: Filth Storm (塵嵐 Gomi Arashi?) where Rasuka grabs his victim, then flies high up before hurling the victim down to the ground (often into a pile of garbage).
    • Rūtsu's Crane-Ken style: Crest Kick (丹頂脚 Tanchō Kyaku?) and Pulse Reversal (鼓動戻し Kodō Modoshi?) which is a special Ringi that allows Rūtsu to extract the "Pulse" (鼓動 Kodō?, effectively age and experience) from his victims, making them younger with no memories of their older experience and less capable of fighting back.
  • Dokariya's Hermit Crab-Ken Style: Spiral Shell Spin (巻貝転 Makigaiten?) and its variation Spiraling Great Shell Spin (巻巻大貝転 Maki Maki Dai Kaiten?), Rinki Bullet (臨気弾 Rinki Dan?) and Base-Form Robbing Strike (本体取奪打ち Hontai Shudatsu Uchi?), the latter of which allows Dokariya to possess another person with just a single kiss, entering the victim's body though the mouth and controlling his/her actions from within. Jyan, however, is able to force him out.
  • Eruka's Toad-Ken Style: Mudball Bombs (泥玉弾 Deigyokudan?) and Super Oily Body-Armor (超体油包 Chō Taiyūpao?), both of which are identical to Maga's Ringi. Eruka's Super Oily Body-Armor is defeated by Geki ElephanTohja's Great Firm Ball.
    • Super Jump (超跳躍 Chō Chōyaku?): Eruka's secret Ringi which allows him to leap several hundreds of meters into the air.
  • Tabū's Pig-Ken Style: Flame Breeze (火炎風 Kaenbū?)(Fire breath), Darkness Scent Smell (暗黒香嗅 Ankoku Kakagu?)(Allows him to track down anything with his chest/nose), and Sausage Stuffing Bomb (腸詰爆弾 Chōzume Bakudan?).
  • Mārashiya's Porcupine-Ken Style: Whirlwind Needles (旋風針 Senpū Shin?)(Quills Fire from forehead), Gorgeous-Sword Storm (豪華剣嵐 Gōkaken Ran?), and Needle-Sword Mountain (針剣山 Hariken Zan?), a form of acupuncture that can change a person's personality with normally no cure in sight.
  • Hihi's Baboon-Ken Style: Repeating Super-Bite (再咬超 Sai Kō Chō?)
  • Pouōte's Archerfish-Ken Style: Water Stream Supremacy (水流覇 Suiryū Ha?) and the stronger Dorinki Water Stream Supremacy (怒臨気水流覇 Dorinki Suiryū Ha?) which fires a blast of Rinki-charged water from the nozzle gauntlets, much like the archerfish does to catch its prey.
  • Niwa's Crocodile-Ken Style: Ten Thousand Stones Descend (万降石 Bankōseki?), Mudbank Torso Snapping (泥州胴折り Desudō Ori?), and Mudbank Torso Snapping: Authority (泥州胴折り・通 Desudō Ori Tsū?).
  • Chouda's Ostrich-Ken Style: Brain Heaven Running (脳天駆 Nōtenku?), Dark Dragon Wave: Heavenly Overflow (黒竜波・天空溢 Kokuryūha Tenkūitsu?), and Reckless Driving Foot (暴走足 Bōsōsoku?)
    • Absorbing Reception Force (受吸力 Jukyūryoku?): A special Ringi that allows Chouda to have himself attacked on purpose and build a defense for it, making him stronger. The Ringi's effects can be passed on to future incarnations.
    • Shift Rinki (転臨気 Ten Rinki?): A resurrection Ringi that allows Chouda to place all of his Rinki into an egg before he is destroyed. The egg later hatches into a new stronger version of Chouda.
  • Tsuneki's Fox-Ken Style: Advent Arrow-like Death (光臨矢乃如死 Kōrin Yano Gotoshi?) and Nine-Tailed Clone Change (九尾分身変 Kyūbi Bunshin Hen?)
    • Fox Dimension Big Bomb (狐空大爆弾 Kokū Dai Bakudan?): A barrier that would explode and destroy the city once enough Rinki is gathered from within it. Furthermore, the being in barrier increases the user's power ninefold and only defeat of the user can negate the Ringi.
  • Mukoua's Anglerfish-Ken Style: Thousand Dangerous Lanterns (万禍灯 Hikuman Wattō?) and Sudden Long Leap (突長跳 Totchō Chō?)
  • Bākā's Hippopotamus-Ken Style: Crotch Location Reeling (股所繰 Koshoguri?), Half-Bākā (半夏迦 Hanbākā?), Dumb-Pound Penalty (鈍打刑 Dondake?), and Head Nausal-Tart-Wave (頭鼻酢波 Zubizuba?)
