Tenkai (天界) is the new Sky Ninja Shurikenger (天空忍者シュリケンジャー Tenkū Ninja Shurikenjā) and the student of Yousuke Shiina.
Hurricaneger 10 Years AfterEdit
Ten years ago, when the Hurricanegers defeated Tau Zant, the Evil Will gave birth to an even greater power, the Great Will. The Great Will then manifested into Tenkai.
Years later, he was found by Yousuke and was then kidnapped by Bat Ze Runba. Bat planned to awaken the Great Will within Tenkai and threatened Yousuke to get all the Shinobi Medals in exchange for his life. However, after Bat broke his promise with Yousuke and successfully gathered the medals needed to awaken the Great Will, Tenkai successfully resisted the Great Will's evil influence.
After being saved by Yousuke, he defeated an army of Magerrapa by himself. The Shurikenger Shinobi Medal then responded to his desire to break free of his cursed fate and be a ninja of justice, choosing him to be the new Shurikenger. Tenkai, along with the Hurricanegers and the Gouraigers, managed to defeat Bat.
In the credits, Tenkai continues to follow his mentor Yousuke.

Behind the scenesEdit
Tenkai is portrayed by Koumi Hashimoto (橋本 仰未 Hashimoto Kōmi), who previously played Kenta Sawai in Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters episode Mission 39: Finishing Blow! Messiah's Fist. As Shurikenger, he was portrayed by suit actor Hiroyuki Tanaka (田中 宏幸 Tanaka Hiroyuki).
- Unlike the original Shurikenger, Tenkai's roll call doesn't include an English catchphrase. Also, he is not imprisoned in his suit. Ironically, he has a serious personality despite being a child while the original was an easy going individual.
- Tenkai is the first child ranger since Kou of the Howling New Star (KibaRanger), with both having similarities:
- Both are the sixth Rangers for their respective teams.
- Both grow into adult-size when donning their Ranger suits.
- Both have suits that include body armor that their respective core teams lack.
- Both were attempted to be turned evil at some point.
- Tenkai is the first replacement 6th Ranger.
- Tenkai is named after Japanese Buddhist monk of the same name, who was rumored to be Akechi Mitsuhide in disguise.
