- ―Masataka Shiba[src]
Masataka Shiba is Kaoru's father and the seventeenth head of the Shiba family and Shinken Red, succeeding Yōjirō Shiba. He set up the idea to use a kagemusha to counter Dokoku's plans to wipe his family out of existence. Masataka sealed Dokoku using the imperfect Sealing Character just before his death; his then-unborn daughter was then taken into hiding and Takeru was presented as the new head of the Shiba House.

Behind the scenesEdit
Credited as the Previous Head (先代当主 Sendai Tōshu), Masataka is portrayed by Masaya Matsukaze (松風 雅也 Matsukaze Masaya), who previously portrayed Shun Namiki/MegaBlue in Denji Sentai Megaranger. Coincidentally, the first Shinken Red, Retsudo Shiba, was played by another Sentai Blue alumni, Masashi Goda who played Yuuji Mita/OhBlue in Chouriki Sentai Ohranger.
