Last time we asked our readers what is their favorite animal/beast themed hero/es?. We never expected to have a lot of returns for this category, so to those who have participated, thank you!
Sorry, We came a wee late due to me having some issues with my health and my computer so the JEFusion poll was halted. There will be a new poll this coming Wednesday, while the results for The Best Kamen Rider Babe will be posted on Friday, so stay tuned for that.
Heroes come in different shapes and sizes. These heroes vested themselves in animal motifs to unleash the beast within. Out of the number of entries we received we picked 10 Heroes with animal or beast motif. Let's hear what our readers has to say about them.
Favorite Animal Themed Heroes
10. Kyouryuu Sentai Zyuranger
Kyouryuu Sentai Zyuranger
Mostly Dragonranger made me love Zyuranger, his costume, the actor, the weapons, the mecha, the rivalry between Geki and let's not forget the US counterpart was pretty awesome too. All the very reasons I started to love Toku in the first place(I guess you never forget your first love, nor will the next one feel the same lol).

Sun Vulcan, being the first Super Sentai team that had animal inspired look, had cool helmets where each ranger represents an animal. Also it's the team with the most bad ass mentor/commander Arashiyama.
08. Kamen Rider Kabuto

This guy is badass. Maybe too much eccentric but he can handle a lot of monsters thanks to his clock up. His forms are pretty interesting : The armored one respresenting a pupan and the rider form (cast off) representing a japanese rhinoceros beetle. This second form is very classy and clean and I think the suit and the character (Tendou Souji) matches very well. (And yes, a Japanese rhinoceros beetle is an animal and not an insect ^^)

I'm amazed by their flying abilities, bird themed mechas, and they are birds man!! (No pun intended) Up to this moment, there are no sentai who are a fully bird team. Hope they make a full birdman team again.
05. Zyuden Sentai Kyouryuger
Zyuden Sentai Kyouryuger
I like dinosaurs, and unlike Zyuranger and Abaranger, Kyuryuger has a lot of dino rangers to offer. From the main team of 5, plus the 6th ranger, the spirit rangers, their mentor becoming a ranger and an evil ranger. This series has the most number of heroes in spandex.

The theme song is incredibly catchy. The story is very solid throughout and I still can't get over how amazing Rio and Mele were as main villains. It was nice to see them all improve throughout the series. If any Sentai deserves a 10 year anniversary to me, it's Gekiranger.
02. Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger

Everything about this series felt so real. So much potential to expand as well. I would love to see a revival of this series with new merchandise!!

His medals allowed him to control so many different animal abilities. He is the quintessential animal based toku hero.
