Red Mask!
~ Red Mask

Takeru​, also known as Red Mask, is the main protagonist of Hikari Sentai Maskman. He is a leader of the Maskmen and the estranged lover of the Underground Empire Tube's Princess Ial.

Description

Takeru is the 23-year-old leader of the group who fights as Red Mask. He is a specialist in karate and a Formula One driver. He was spotted by Sugata a year prior to the beginning of the series while he saved the mother's infant from being crashed in the railway. Sugata later offered him a spot on the Maskman team. His love for Mio and desire to find her are his motivations. While in Otaki, Takeru meets Norio through whom he masters the "God Hand" technique. Igam tries to eliminate him by travelling into the past. Near the end of the series, he single-handedly defeats Baraba out of rage in battle. He reunites with Mio in the end but he is forced to split up with her.

Personality and Traits

At the age of 23, Takeru became the leader, as well as he is proficient in karate and a Formula One driver.

Takeru wasn't always a role model as he is today. As a child, he used to be bratty, naughty, often getting punished for misconduct and always fearing retribution. He planned to leave Japan, but was interrupted by a mysterious man who told him that he was actually just running away from his insecurities. At the man's urging and the fact that the man and four other people transformed into superheroes to save him, little Takeru was inspired and abandoned his plans to leave Japan, attempting to face his problems head-on like a man. This mysterious man is later revealed to be Takeru himself from the future, although as he fixes his image, Takeru became so embarrassed with it that if anyone asked, he'll cover it up by telling that he's actually a model student envied by everyone else.

One night, a grown-up Takeru rescued a woman and a child from a robber. This action was spotted by Commander Sanjuro Sugata and he subsequently challenged him to a fight. Takeru was thoroughly beaten despite having learned Karate, but he refused to give up. His determination impressed Sugata and he offered him to lead the Maskmen and become Red Mask. With his mood lightened, Takeru accepted this offer.
