Three misfit pupils of the Hayate Way's Ninja Academy, who are given a rigorous training regiment by their sensei Mugensai Hinata, are the only survivors when most of their peers were slaughtered during the graduation ceremony by a group of evil space ninjas known as the Jakanja that serve a mysterious power hidden on Earth. Mugensai, who turned himself into a hamster to evade his pursuers, and his daughter Oboro Hinata recruit the trio to become the legendary Hurricangers to fight Jakanja. The Hurricangers are joined by the Gouraiger brothers of the Ikazuchi Way's Ninja Academy, who were initially their enemies, and later the mysterious Shurikenger who unites the two ninja groups to stop Jakanja from acquiring the mysterious power.

Ikki went against the Ikazuchi Way's wishes to obtain the Evil Will after learning of it during his mission in Egypt and learned of the "Final Secret" at the time of a meteor shower. He went against his school's wishes by creating the Gouraiger system and making his sons kill each other to evoke it while making them believe that rage and hatred would only promote strength.

Desiring to rebuild the Ikazuchi School, Isshuu used the blade with disastrous results. After learning to use the Kiraimaru in a way where his friends would not be harmed, Isshuu decides to rebuild the school after Jakanja is defeated.

When facing enlarged Jakanja members, Shurikenger summons Karakuri Giant Tenkuujin (絡繰巨漢天空神, Karakuri Kyokan Tenkūjin) and changes it from its helicopter Shinobi Machine mode to robot mode with the command "Soaring Transformation" (飛翔変形, Hishō Henkei).

Shurikenger
The original Shurikenger, known as the Ninja of 20 Faces and representative of the Unified Universal Ninja School, was as ex-student of the Hayate Way's Ninja Academy who became Gozen's personal fighter while renouncing name and face as he is permanently transformed in his costumed form. A somewhat comical figure, Shurikenger often used broken English phrases including the famous "I am Ninja of Ninja!" and also often poorly mixes both Japanese and English into his sentences. He usually disguise himself as a 'regular' person until he reverts to his true form with the Shuriken Ball device when confronted by Jakanja. Though Shurikenger seemed to have died after being mortally wounded by Sandaru and using Tenkujin to take out Satorakura, Shurikenger mysteriously reappears to aid his allies and the Abarangers and is last seen overseeing the Ninningers' progress under request of Toha Yamaji.
Tenkai (天界)

But kidnapped by Bat Ze Runba, Tenkai is revealed to be the embodiment of the Great Force that manifested after the Hurricanger/Goraiger teams defeated Tau Zanto. Though Runba succeeded in awakening the Great Force, Tenkai manages to suppress it and gains the ability to become the new Shurikenger with the resolve to use his powers for good as he becomes Yousuke's apprentice. Unlike his predecessor, though he possesses the same abilities and attacks, Tenkai does not use broken English phrases in his sentences.

Despite his form, he can fight and communicated with Gozen before she revealed herself.

But Gozen refrains from any form of sadness to maintain the seal placed on the Grieving Bow. After moving in with the Hurricanegers after her location is compromised, Gozen learned of how much the world changed during her solitude while seeing the ninja are true heroes despite of her earlier impressions. But Sandaaru learned of the seal, killing her once it is undone. During the events of 10 Years After, the Hurricangers meet another Lady Gozen who is a blood relative of Kagura's and was entrusted with Shurikenger's Shinobi Medal before it was stolen.

Their goal is to bring Earth to ruins in order to invoke "it", the "Evil Force" (邪悪なる意志, Jaakunaru Ishi) that would form in the depths of the ocean before destroying the universe. But when Tau Zanto assumes his ultimate form the Centipede is destroyed in the transformation, with Furabiijo and Wendinu among the survivors.

She once acted on her own by creating the android Furabijenu, who briefly forced her out of Jakanja before manipulating Nanami into creating a remote control for her creation. Following the series finale, assumed to have been killed, Furabijo and Wendinu ended up on Dino Earth where they attempted to ally themselves with the Evoliens during the events of Abaranger vs. Hurricaneger.

Third Lance, Manmaruba (参の槍・マンマルバ, San no Yari Manmaruba)
Tau Zanto's most valuable servant due his ability to see the fixed future, Manmaruba developed a grudge on the Goraigers when they tricked him into believing they were the last two Lancers.

While Hurricane Red averted Ikkou's death, Manmaruba creates a stronger clone of himself to continue in his place. The new Manmaruba's psychic power allow him to see an meteor shower allowing him to fully reveal the means to acquire the Evil Force, but the exposure mutates him into the mindless monster Manmaruba Reckless Form (マンマルバ暴走体, Manumaruba Bōsōtai) that is destroyed by Tenrai Senpuujin.

A Snake Ninpou (蛇忍法 Hebininpō) mistress of disguise who appears on Earth with Furabiijo as the one who enlarges the Space-Ninjas, occasionally called by her partner as "Wendy". Wendinu was made a Dark Lancer due to her unique ability to grow into a giant super-strong berserker after amassing enough stress and rage in her. In that crazed state of mind Wendinu destroys an entire planet single-handedly. After Manmaruba's death, Wendinu follows her own plan in setting up her own Wendinu Cram School scheme using brainwashed children to kill the ninja for her. In the process, she falls head over heels in love with a young man named Hashimoto. Once her plan failed Wendinu's rage reaches its zenith and she grows, overpowering the Karakuri Giants until the presence of Hashimoto causes her to shrink back to normal size. Following the series finale, assumed to have been killed, Wendinu and Furabijo ended up on Dino Earth where they attempted to ally themselves with the Evoliens during the events of Abaranger vs. Hurricaneger.

He also build his own personal robots to fight the ninjas. Receiving the Raging Arrow from Sanderu to unlock its power Sargain learns that it functions like the Shinobi Medals.

Satarakura was stopped by the Earth ninjas but Tau Zanto saves him to preserve the Jaykumu Gun as it fused to his arm and drained him of his own energy. Taking advantage Satarakura uses the energy of the Jakyumu Gun to overpower the ninjas and take their energy. Sandaaru arrives once the Jakyumu Gun's energy pack is full and takes it before attempting to kill Satarakura. Though Satarakura survives, his mask is broken and his mind shattered turning him into a hateful psychopath intent on killing both sides. It takes Tenkujin's self-destruct to finally kill him.

With the exception of Sargain and Tau Zanto, who played along, Sandaaru wins the other Jakanja members over while convincing them to all attack together rather than individually. After using the Earth Ninjas to power the Raging Arrow, Sandaaru uses Sargain to devise a method for its use before secretly killing him once making a copy of Sargain's Karakuri Ball system. It was only after acquiring the Grieving Arrow from Gozen that Sandaaru learns Tau Zanto was using him the entire time and reveals his true colors after the destruction of the Centipede.
