Benkei Kuruma is one of three Getter Pilots who are to become embroiled in the Getterborn Riots.
Benkei is a large man with a rounded head, black hair and thick eyebrows. He wears a black shirt, navy blue jacket, green pants and a green cap he got from his late old friend and fellow Getter Pilot Musashi Tomoe.
As the gentle giant of his team, Benkei looks out for others and acts as the voice of reason in the face of in-fighting. Due to his good relationship with his fellow Getter Pilot Kei, Benkei is especially compassionate toward autistic people, and thus was easily convinced by Sarah Serenity to help out Sora. He gets quite comically aggravated when Donald or Goofy mispronounce his name as "Binky", but he never attacks them in anger.
After somehow ending up in the Realm of Light, albeit separated from his friends Ryoma and Hayato, Benkei saves Sora from the Saurian Greyton by demonstrating his Daisetsuzan Oroshi move. He then points Sora out to Master Goken while agreeing to continue looking out for Sarah. He also decides to put his mechanic skills to use when Sora comes back from Goken's lab with the new Gummi Ships, and later reunites with Hayato.
- Benkei is the only Getter Pilot whose English and Japanese VA's are both recast in Getterborn Rising.
- Though his new Japanese voice actor did portray him in Getter Robo Arc and his "replacement" Benkei Musashibo in New Getter Robo.
- Gregg Berger's voice for Benkei is reminiscent of Fred Dukes (The Blob) in the video game version of X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
- 大雪山おろし; means "Mt. Daisetsu's Downwind"
