His name is Takaya Aiba
(Nick Carter), although he is more commonly referred to as Dangerous-Boy
(D-Boy), a nickname Noal (Ringo) coins based on his recklessness and dangerous
ideology. Originally on board the Argos when it was taken over by the aliens,
Blade was freed by his father before the process of transformation could be
completed, leaving him almost free from the Radam's (Venomoid's) influence.
Blade swore to avenge the loss of his family and destroy Omega (Darkon) and the
Although one of the more powerful Tekkamen, Blade is disadvantaged by a number
of factors: in a previous battle, Blade's crystal was shattered and he was no
longer able to transform independently, having instead to rely on the robot
Pegas; also, Blade cannot stay in his Tekkaman form for longer than 30 minutes,
lest he regress into a primal state in which he becomes uncontrollable.
The transformation process itself also puts a considerable strain on Blade's
body, increasing his metabolism and, later in the series, threatening his life.
These effects are aggravated further when he uses technology derived from a
Radam (Venomoid) "Tek-System" plant to evolve into an advanced Blaster
Tekkaman (Super Teknoman). This enhanced form is the next step in the alien
evolution but, while extremely powerful, is not without its drawbacks: the most
perilous one being that the Tekkaman (Teknoman) in question only has months to
live upon upgrading and causes temporary blindness.
In an ironic twist of fate, while Blade faked an amnesia early on in the series
so as to avoid having to talk about what happened to his family, the Blaster
Tekkaman (Super Teknoman) evolution causes him to truly develop amnesia, with
him losing memories important to him on a regular basis. First he forgets his
time spent with the Space Knights, then later Miyuki's (Shara's) favourite
flower and other important memories; in one episode, he completely forgets that
his crystal was destroyed by Dagger, and that he needs to use Pegas to transform
into Blade now.
