Ranger Villain Profile: Boukenger Creator King Ryuuwon

Creator King Ryuuwon (創造王リュウオーン, Sōzōō Ryūōn, 2-47) is the Chief and creator of the Jaryuu. As revealed by professor Igarashi in Task 29, Ryuuwon was originally a human who lived two centuries ago. A scholar obsessed in creating a world for dragons, he became a treasure hunter and made it his goal to obtain the Lemurian Precious, the "Mythical Beast", destroying many important Lemurian ruins until he was abandoned on a deserted island. He experimented on himself using the genetic research of Lemuria and its treasure, the Helmet of Ryuuwon, to assume his current state with long life and a miraculous healing factor "Jaryuu Soul Transmission", allowing him to evade mortal injury with his regenerative abilities. He wields two swords on his person as well as a gun that can also enlarge his minions. He and Gajah don't get along, though they both share a common enemy in the Boukengers, usually because of Gajah's slyness. One such team up with Gajah to find the Precious Manuscript of Leon Giordana, which resulted in defeat, but Gajah used the information he obtained without Ryuuwon realizing it until it was too late. In task 29, Ryuuwon reveals his special sword move: His swords shine with green and black flames and at the voice of "the power of my dream!", Ryuuwon delivers a double horizontal cut. He was last defeated by Satoru's Golden Slash attack, but he returned in Task 33, gaining help from Gai and Rei to capture Natsuki and gain control of the Precious Sun of Lemuria to power Grand. He was tricked in returning the favor to the Questers by getting the Philosopher's Herb for them. In Task 47, Ryuuwon discovers, after failing to create more Jaryuu Soldiers, that his body had reached its limit, and searches for a Precious to regain full-power no matter what. When he reaches the shrine in which Pandora's Key is hidden, Gajah attacks him and steals the Key. When the Boukengers question him, Ryuuwon tells Satoru that as himself, all adventurers seek power and in the end, die a terrible fate, as seen with Ryuuwon apparently committing suicide, leaving his helmet behind. Makino recovers the helmet, as it turns out to be a precious. However, once at the Precious Bank, Ryuuwon regenerates from the helmet, knocks out Makino and tries to steal the Egg of Lemuria to duplicate Gajah's modification on it by using himself to become a new lifeform to erase his humanity. Satoru confronts Ryuuwon, who fought BoukenRed with the Soldier's Crossbow, the Jabou & the Seiryuutou. In the end, Ryuuwon reverted to human form and ran back into the Precious Bank to get the egg with Satoru in pursuit. Despite realizing his dream "to no longer be human" made him human, Ryuuwon was bent on getting the Lemurian Egg as the Precious Bank explodes with him and Satoru inside. Although Ryuuwon was killed, the Jaryuu that survived are intent on fulfilling his goal of a world without humans. He is based on Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger's DaiZyujin.
