Ranger Profile: Dekaranger DekaMaster

Dekaranger DekaMaster

Anubian Chief Doggy Kruger (ドギー・クルーガー, Dogī Kurūgā) / DekaMaster (デカマスター, Dekamasutā)

"Cutting down hundreds of evil doers! Hell's Guard Dog! DekaMaster!"(Hyakkiyakou wa buttagiru! Jigoku no Banken! Dekamasutā!)

Nickname, "Boss" (ボス, Bosu). An alien from the Planet Anubis, he's a member of the Shep-Tribe and the much decorated commander of Earth's SPD unit. He was a legend in his day as a DekaRanger, earning his other nickname, Hell's Guard Dog (地獄の番犬, Jigoku no Banken). Doggy is a tough leader and being honorable, he will do anything to save the ones he cares about. He seems to have feelings for his assistant Swan, panicking whenever he hears that Swan has an admirer. He also occasionally assists the DekaRangers as DekaMaster, wielding the powerful D-Sword Vega. His fighting style is Ginga Ittoryuu or Galaxy Sword, chosen by his Sensei to learn the style's secret technique, Vega Impulse. A secret about Doggy was revealed in Dekaranger vs. Abaranger by Yukito Sanjyou/AbareBlue after examining him: although Doggy is a master swordsman, a problem with his backbone causes him to miss once in 2,000 attacks, which Yukito immediately treated with his chiropractic skills. Incidentally, Doggy knows of a curry chef (possibly Ryunnosuke Sugishita as Doggy had mentioned to him in Dekaranger vs. Abaranger that he is a regular at the DinoHouse restaurant), who knew of a woman known as Miyuki Ozu, the mother of all 5 Ozu siblings. When Doggy, Swan, and Miyuki met, they all quickly became close friends when Miyuki attempted to entrust the two with the Heaven's Flower. Doggy also fought Wolzard for a short time, both proving to be evenly matched. His number is 100.

* SPD Weapon: D-Sword Vega: A sword wielded by DekaMaster. When sheathed, its appearance is that of dulled metal, but when DekaMaster activates it, silver metal is revealed. Like Bisques' Sword Altair, Doggy's sword also has a gun function as seen in the movie and in Ep 50. D-Sword Vega has three techniques seen in the series, two of them are Judgment finishers.
* Vega Slash: Powerful slice attack that defeats Alienizers. (Doggy's Default Deletion Attack)
* Vega Tornado Slash: Seen in Episode 21. DekaMaster creates a circle with his sword and spins it repeatedly until a tornado is created. The attack is then focused on the opponent with an upward slash, which blows them away.
* Ginga Ittoryuu Shiki (Secret Technique of the Galaxy Sword Style) "Vega Impulse": Shown in Episode 44. DekaMaster uses this move in which he lifts his sword up and as it goes down, the blade extends slicing his opponent in half and in the process destroys him/her (Secondary Deletion Attack).

  1. DekaMaster is probably the most awesome sentai commander ever.
