Shin Seigi, aka New/Shin Captain America, is the main protagonist of Marvel VS Toei Tokuverse: Superhero Infinity Wars, and it's tie-in game, Marvel VS Super Sentai[1][2].

Biography

Early Life

Shin was born to Wayne and Ayaka at the end of the second millennium, living a decent childhood, following up on the exploits of the Power Rangers and constantly learning from them the importance of friendship, teamwork, and inclusiveness. When Tony Stark began his tenure as Iron Man[3] and revealed his secret identity to the public, Shin felt somewhat disappointed that more people were starting to think Iron Man is "cooler" and more popular than his childhood heroes, and that some would even ostracize him for his loyalty to the Power Rangers fandom, yet he tried his hardest to stay positive. He didn't quite have the words to put it at the time, but he knew in his heart there was something iffy about Tony Stark, especially given the armored Avenger's shameful secrets and massively flawed perceptions of heroism, which he strongly encouraged his father to be extra cautious about.

In the wake of the Sokovia Accords' conception and introduction[4], not only were Shin's worst fears about Iron Man being realized, but his relationship with his father Wayne took a drastic turn for the worse.

World of the Powerless

Five years after Iron Majin asserted himself as ruler of the world, circa 2023, Shin is finally fed up with his father's idolatry of the Great Betrayer, convinces Ayaka to leave Wayne, and steals the Iron Patriot suit[5] with Spider Man's help to free those imprisoned by the Stark Administration and fight the Tyrant of Steel himself. Though Shin loses, he is saved by the spirit of Aka Red, who upgrades his suit after being impressed by Shin's courage and selflessness in the face of impossible odds. Shin is then told to seek out the Super Sentai in the Toei Tokuverse[6], and goes there with a party including Spider Man, Shuri, Groot, Pepper Potts, and later Black Widow.

The Battle of Starktopia 01

With his army completed by 2024, Shin was finally able to return home and end the Stark Administration's reign of tyranny, reconciling with his dad and reuniting with his family before seeing them off to safety. He leads the Shin Avengers into the Iron Babel, destroying the Administration leaders and the last of the Iron Legion as they made their way to the top, followed by the remaining Avengers Sentai Alliance. Despite the loss of Pepper Potts, after the deaths of Drakkon and Stark, Shin was finally able to destroy Iron Majin with DaiZyuJin's help and secure a new age for the people of Earth.[7]

After the War

Once Iron Majin was finally destroyed for good, Shin and the other heroes helped restore New York to its former state before the Administration took over the Earth, and later gave a speech at Pepper's funeral to the entire universe, reminding everyone to never forget or repeat what Tony Stark had done, and bade the Tokuverse's heroes a fond farewell before letting Morgan into his family so they can finally live in peace.

Profile

Shin's appearance is modeled directly after Jason in the 2017 Power Rangers movie.

Appearance

Shin is the spitting image of Jason Lee Scott, the original leader of his childhood heroes. His striving for the same ideals shows how seriously Shin takes the resemblance.

His armored form takes elements from Captain America's old suit, the Iron Patriot[5][8] suit Shin initially used up to it's destruction by Iron Majin, and Optimus Prime of the Transformers series.

Personality

Shin is a reliable, noble, sensitive, thoughtful, compassionate person with a strong sense of justice and an "indestructible heart of gold", largely because he's learned from the mistakes of many other heroes before him. He despises government officials and authority figures like Thaddeus Ross for their hypocrisies and greedy desire to control the Avengers[4], and since he refuses to believe in collective guilt, he does not blame any of the other Avengers for the destruction caused in the wake of their battles, especially not the late Steve Rogers, whom Shin genuinely believes was actually trying to mitigate the damage Tony Stark and the UN caused in the first place, out of their mutual lust for control. Though he isn't afraid to rebuke or speak out against Iron Majin's lackeys and supporters when they threaten his friends and loved ones or otherwise step out of line, he still cares for them, including his father Wayne, whom he hopes will eventually see the error of his support for the hero turned villainous tyrant.

Shin is also very wise, responsible, even-tempered, and mature for his age(firmly disagreeing with Tony Stark's way of getting results, in particular), and actually listens to his allies and teammates when trying to develop the best possible solution to a dilemma, preferring to lead by example and earn the respect of others rather than command it like Tony did. He also usually tries to reason with his opponents first, except for the Iron Legionites which are incapable of independent speech or thought, and prefers not to escalate a battle unless absolutely necessary. Further owing to the meaning of his name, Shin firmly believes that the idea of no good deed going unpunished is built fundamentally on the folly of those who wish to punish altruism, idealism and diversity of opinion from one (confirmed or speculated) reason to another.

His only known flaws are his inexperience(at least up until his use of the Iron Patriot armor), and the fact that he pressured Ayaka to divorce Wayne, and kept his role in the matter secret until Pepper found out. Considering splitting his own parents up as arguably the most difficult decision he had ever made shows that Shin does indeed have a vulnerable side to him, and didn't consider revealing this fact as relevant to his goals. Even after he quickly snapped out of the slump Pepper's desertion left him in, and eventually letting her back into the Shin Avengers, Shin didn't quite forgive himself until after he returned to Starktopia 01 and Wayne rekindled his bond with his family.

Despite his boiling hate for Tony Stark, Shin regrets being forced to kill the treacherous ex-Avenger, showing that he was aware of his own darkness, and tried his hardest to keep it at bay with the hope that the highest authorities of the universe would give Tony the death sentence if need be, rather than Shin. But releasing his pent-up anger at the evil tyrant, like a computer purging a virus from it's systems, also meant he was finally free from the risk of turning into what Shin hated most. Though he is recognized by the public as the true hero of the Superhero Infinity War for uniting the Avengers and Super Sentai, Shin humbly gives the credit to his comrades, for it was the entire Avengers Sentai Alliance and his bonds with them that made him worthy of the power that finally ended the ancient menace who caused so much death, sorrow, destruction, and negativity for eons.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

Abilities

  • Above Average Intellect- Throughout his life, Shin has "learned a lot from a lot". He was also imparted the vast knowledge of the Super Sentai in the moment Aka Red gave him his New Captain America suit. He correctly reasons that he can't fight Iron Majin without first learning how to use an Iron Man suit, and even after getting an upgraded suit, he chose to master that one's capabilities over the time he takes to gather up the Super Sentai.
  • Strong Willed- As if his stamina and the endurance of either the Iron Patriot or New Captain America suits aren't quite enough to help him survive even some of Iron Majin's strongest attacks, Shin is driven by his will to ensure that right prevails. Despite having no idea how to even put on the Iron Patriot suit at first, Shin pushed himself to learn on the job in his first battle against the Iron Legion, and then master it while freeing the other Avengers.
  • Bilingualism- Shin speaks fluent English/Japanese and basic Japanese/English, depending on the voice language track chosen for the game or anime. 
  • Mecha piloting- Shin has proven to be a competent mecha pilot by learning from the more recent Rangers and then being able to use older robos with or without his teammates, like Tategami Li-Oh, DaiVoyager, DekaWing Robo, Gao Icarus, Time Shadow, Victory Mars, Mega Voyager, VRV Robo, Red Puncher, and finally Mugen DaiZyuJin.
  • Athleticism-

Equipment

New Captain America suit

This new suit Shin received from Aka Red's spirit combines aspects of the Iron Patriot suit and Steve Rogers' original Captain America suit, boasting greater strength, speed, durability, flight capability, and the ability to harness the Super Sentai's Greater Powers. The suit morphs into a wristwatch for easy transportation, and Shin can instantly put it on at any time through the activation call "It's Morphin' Time!", or un-suit by saying "power down". It derives its power source from the Morphin Grid, rather than Arc Reactor energy, with the torso-mounted LED screen able to display the symbol of whatever Sentai team corresponds to the Greater Power Shin is using.

The wristwatch can also track any Ranger's location for Shin and allow him to contact the Neo Revengers back on Earth-199999S through a newly established communication frequency known only to them.

Legendary Weaponry

As Shin meets more heroes from the Toei Tokuverse, he is able to replicate their Robos' weaponry through his suit's nanotechnology, much like the Gokaigers' Gokai Changes, through the command call "I need (_insert robo's corresponding Sentai team name here_)'s Greater Power now!". Because of his choice to recruit the Super Sentai in reverse order, Shin has to wait 5-7 days for his suit to finish copying the data for that Sentai's mechas' weaponry(i.e., he can't use the weapons of the Zyuohgers' mecha until he gets to the Ninningers, or those of the Ninningers' mecha until he gets to the ToQgers, and so on.)

Relationships

Family

Wayne Shin

Shin was always bitterly disappointed with his father's blind, obsessive hero worship of Tony Stark, especially given the Stark family's track record for making enemies on their road to "progress". Their relationship took a turn for the worse when Wayne signed in favor of the Sokovia Accords, but although Shin lost all faith in Iron Man, and in Wayne as a father, he still cares for the latter as a human being. After Shin returned home from the Tokuverse, however, Wayne had finally seen the error of his ways and gave his life for his son, admitting he was proud of Shin for taking his destiny into his own hands.

Ayaka Seigi

Having more in common with her than his father, Shin actively took Ayaka's side when she opposed her husband's misguided support for government control over the Avengers, and agrees with her that Tony Stark is no longer the Iron Man he was, and should be. Pressuring her to divorce Wayne was perhaps the most difficult decision he had to make in his life, knowing Ayaka still tried to love him unconditionally, but Wayne's refusal to complain openly about Kibou's death is where mother and son had to draw the line.

Shin trusts Thor and Bruce Banner enough to leave his mother under their protection, and he trusts his mother to open Morgan Stark's eyes to the terror her father has become. Like her son, Ayaka also kept silent about her caving in to her son out of fear of being judged or alienated, especially by the likes of Pepper. But even after Dr. Strange secretly probed her mind for the truth, and then used that information to distract the Neo Revengers from pursuing him, Thor, recalling how hard it was for Odin to banish him for his reckless stupidity[9], convinces the Revengers to go easy on Ayaka.

Seeing Wayne and Shin make amends with each other, and the former reaffirm his love for his family by giving his life for them finally gives her closure, and Shin promised to return safely after Tony Stark gets the punishment he deserves. With the Super Infinity War finally at an end, Ayaka is able to put the sorrow of her recent past behind her, as she becomes Morgan's stepmother to honor Pepper's memory.

Ai Seigi

Ai is Shin's sister, and her wrongfully being sent to juvenile detention for protesting the Administration's actions is a vital motivating factor for Shin to finally take matters into his own hands. He entrusted the Neo Revengers with breaking her free, and by succeeding they earn Ai's trust.

Kibou Seigi

Kibou is Shin's younger brother, whose death by the Iron Legion is a vital motivating factor for Shin to finally take matters into his own hands. Despite feeling like he had failed his brother, Shin viewed his friendship with Peter Parker as a second chance to be the big brother he should have been, and by the beginning of the Battle of Starktopia 01, had grown close enough to Peter to consider him his brother too. Shin was overjoyed to see his brother alive again thanks to Dr. Strange's Snap, after the latter proves it's really him by remembering that Shin once got a PS2 slim with Final Fantasy 7-10 (including X-2 and Advent Children) for Christmas.

Friends

Steve Rogers

Shin is way more forgiving of the questionable decisions the old Captain America was forced to make, particularly in Civil War, understanding that he was a victim of circumstances growing out of his control, unlike Tony who shamelessly threw his morals out the window and his friends under the bus to please the government under the excuse of serving a higher good. After witnessing the hero's televised execution, Shin was understandably heartbroken and his bitterness at Tony Stark worsened. When Rogers was brought back, Shin expressed his desire to fight with the preceding Captain America, just once, during the Battle of Starktopia 01. It is said that Shin was made a consultant to the new incarnation of SHIELD after helping Rogers repeal the Sokovia Accords.

T'Challa

Shin has come to respect T'Challa as a true king after watching his speech with the intent of opening Wakanda's borders[10] on TV, or at least hearing about it by word of mouth. Helping Shuri deal with her grief over her brother's execution provides Shin the incentive to learn more about Wakanda, help bridge it's gaps with the rest of the world, and perhaps even assist in their scientific advancements for the good of mankind. After the war, Shin made sure T'Challa's name is among those in the Super Infinity Memorial Wall.

Groot, Pepper, Shin, Peter Parker, and Shuri (from left to right)

Peter Parker

Having learned a great deal from Tony's many mistakes with Peter[11], who saved his life and helped him steal the Iron Patriot suit, Shin is more honest, lenient, open, caring, and supportive of the wall-crawler, and proves to be a much better role model and an older brother figure to him, as shown by actually fighting alongside him instead of using the morally grey measures Tony had taken to make Peter a "better hero". Peter also enjoys listening to Shin's "history lessons" about the Super Sentai, based on the massive amount of knowledge imparted to Shin by Aka Red. Shin also quite easily understands at least most of Spidey's pop-cultural jokes, having a similar, good-natured sense of humor himself, and welcomes the levities with open arms in stark contrast to Tony hypocritically rebuking Spidey for it[12]. Peter consented to Shin's recommendation for the team to use comm-links, bearing in mind that Tony put a tracking device on his suit for less than universally acceptable reasons without first asking for his former apprentice's approval.[11]

Once the war is finally won, Parker is finally able to go be a hero on his own, but still remains friends with Shin.

Shuri

Shin not only considers her tech savvy a valuable asset to his team, but also shows early signs of developing feelings for her, be they platonic or romantic. Though she has yet to have any similar feelings for Shin, Shuri nonetheless forges a strong camaraderie with him to fill the void left by T'Challa's death by Iron Majin's hand. Shin did not appear to object to Shuri returning to Wakanda after the war is over, and they still remain friends, despite her duties to her people.

Groot

Shin acts as Groot's second father figure as Rocket stays with the remaining Avengers to fight Iron Majin and Lord Drakkon, and shares his appreciation of life. He was a bit more firm with Groot when it came to the latter's smart-tablet privileges, but would promise Groot tips on playing his favorite games when he earned it back. When Groot grew back to his adult form courtesy of the Gingamen, Shin treats the alien more like an adult.

Shin was a bit sad to see Groot leave Earth with the Guardians, but was quickly reassured that they can take care of each other.

Pepper Potts

Despite her faith that Tony would ultimately turn himself around, Shin feels torn between forcing Pepper to accept the fact that the man she knew for so long has finally been consumed by his own ego and hubris, and letting her come to terms with it on her own time. Despite them clashing over how to run the team at times, Pepper nonetheless proves her worth to the Shin Avengers time and again.

Their relationship came to a brief snag when she learned of how Shin convinced Ayaka to divorce Wayne, and thus accused her leader of "scheming to take Tony away" as she ditches the Shin Avengers. Ultimately, it took some convincing from Takeru of the Maskmen for Pepper to make amends with Shin, though she can only hope Tony would surrender willingly when he is defeated, so as to at least spare Shin from carrying out the death sentence, an outcome Shin tried his best to avoid perhaps more for her sake than anyone else's.

Pepper was heartbroken that Shin ended up killing her husband after all, but he was able to remind her that she still has Morgan, and Morgan will need her mother to guide her out of her father's dark shadow. Shin only wanted to help Pepper conquer her insecurities and disprove the notions Tony seeks to impose on everyone, including her. Although Pepper was tragically murdered by Iron Majin, who wanted to spite Shin for his influence on Pepper, and Shin was greatly saddened by it, he made sure she would not be avenged and not forgotten, and let Morgan live with him as his adoptive stepsister as she discards the Stark name out of disgust for her father's sins.

Natasha Romanoff

Shin shares Black Widow's disgust at her and Tony's actions in Civil War, and Tony's worsening egotism and stubbornness. She regrets her mistakes back then so much, she jumped at the chance to redeem herself by helping Shin recruit the Super Sentai. After the war is over, Shin personally saw to it that Nat was desterilized so she can retire peacefully and have children someday.

Bruce Banner

Shin does not blame Bruce for his role in creating Ultron[13], and forgives him for letting Tony buy him off with promises of "peace in our time". Together they made sure that General Thunderbolt would pay for making enemies of Bruce[14] and the other Avengers[4], so that after losing his Hulk powers forever, Bruce would be able to live in peace with Natasha and never have to fight again.

Thor Odinson

After being rescued from being used as a living battery for Iron Majin's diabolical needs, Thor is grateful to Shin and assumes leadership of the Neo Revengers who stay behind while Shin rallies the Super Sentai. After hearing how Strange had capitulated to Tony's selfish desire to destroy Thanos, he agreed to keep the Sorcerer Supreme's activities regulated at Shin's behest.

After Strange let Vision die and spilled the beans about the divorce, Shin assured Thor that none of this was Thor's fault, and convinced the god to forgive him and Ayaka. After the war, Thor personally thanked Shin for his part in getting through to Loki.

Dr. Strange

Despite saving him, Shin remains critical of Strange and considers him just as dangerous and foolish as Tony Stark, both for his willingness to sacrifice Peter Parker, and for letting Tony talk him into challenging Thanos so recklessly without even trying to officially apologize to Steve Rogers[12]. Shin has strictly told Strange if he wants to make up for his mistakes, he must play by the Neo Revengers' rules and never sacrifice teammates or civilians for any reason. His disdain for the Sorcerer Supreme is finally dispelled when Strange sacrifices himself to revive the innocents who died under the Administration's rule, so Shin ensured that Strange would be memorialized for his selfless final act.

Yondu Udonta

With the space pirate having been revived as part of a time travel experiment, Yondu and Shin form a long-distance bond as a "father"(whose adoptive son had been killed by Iron Majin) and "son"(whose father had been swayed by the hypocrisies Tony Stark exemplifies and panders to). After the war, Yondu personally expressed his respect for Shin and Groot for holding firmly to the ideals of family, before going with Star Lord and the other Guardians.

Loki

Having heard of the God of Mischief from Thor, Shin convinces the Gokaigers to release Loki after they bump into his dimension hopping '2012' self from the Battle of New York[15]. By relating to Loki about his own conflicted feelings regarding Wayne, Shin is able to convince the God of Mischief to put his differences aside and help the Avengers defeat their former most prolific founding member. After the war is over, Shin allows Loki to remain with Thor, expressing his confidence that the God of Thunder will help keep his brother on the right path after they had reconciled and defeated Queen Hedrian.

Super Sentai

Shin wholeheartedly respects this long line of color-coded superhero teams ever since the "original" Power Rangers(actually the Zyurangers in the context of the Tokuverse) first caught his attention, for their legitimate dedication to true justice and their firm belief in the power of friendship and teamwork. After being told of his childhood heroes' true origins by Aka Red, Shin hopes to get every Sentai team, starting in reverse order from the Zyuohgers, to join his and the remaining Avengers' cause of defeating Iron Majin.

Shin Avengers + Zyurangers + Kibaranger.jpg

Shin's reason for recruiting the Super Sentai one team at a time instead of all at once is not only to steadily hone his powers, but to also prove himself to them on a more personal level; and as a result, he becomes very good friends with notably Gai Ikari, who was similarly a dedicated fan before his tenure as Gokai Silver, Kou of the Dairangers, Geki and Burai, the most prolific of the Zyurangers, and eventually Tsuyoshi Kaijou, the real original Red Ranger. Ultimately, Shin's faith in the Super Sentai was rewarded with certain victory over the Stark Administration and Iron Majin, and he proudly assured them that they would always be welcome back to his dimension if they are needed again.

Kamen Riders

Also respecting them as heroes like the Super Sentai, Shin expresses hopes of getting them into his alliance as well, after clearing up a misunderstanding between him and Kamen Rider Decade. He has apparently heard of them beforehand at his school, through the students confusing them with the Power Rangers. He also respected Takeshi Hongo enough to let him change his mind on his own time after his initial refusal to join up with the Avengers Sentai Alliance.[7]

DaiZyuJin

The Great Beast God already knew beforehand why Shin so strongly felt Tony Stark is not a hero, but rather "the most dangerous living weapon ever produced", and admires the Shin Avengers' leader for his honesty, appreciation of life, and staying true to himself and his core values. While advising Shin that Stark should be put down, DaiZyuJin understands he shouldn't order Shin to make the kill himself, due to the god's regret over letting Bandora use Burai to toy with his and the Zyurangers' morals, and a presumed understanding of how Pepper Potts would be affected. Only when Tony threw Drakkon under the bus in a vain attempt to kill Peter Parker in the process, does Shin finally heed DaiZyuJin's advice and sentence the Tyrant of Steel to death.

Enemies

Tony Stark

Shin finally kills Tony Stark for his crimes.

Shin despises Tony Stark for his continued betrayal of his better principles and the respect of his former comrades, his insufferable egotism and superiority complex, and other flaws[16][17], all of which contributed to Iron Man's final fall from grace[4][11][12][13]. He views the armored anti-hero as a massive hypocrite of the worst kind for selling out his fellow heroes and their values of friendship and teamwork, as symbolized by his desperation in appeasing a corrupt government and their mutual critics who both see the Avengers as reckless vigilantes, butting heads with Captain America in Civil War, and defending the "honor" of similarly hypocritical individuals in power who take the Avengers for granted. He would also express a similar disgust at Howard Stark for his own culpability in molding Tony into such a self-righteous snob, believing Tony's father doesn't deserve to be remembered as a hero either; that both of them protected Earth's citizens only to inflict their will upon them as though the Starks were living gods.

Also, Shin hated even the Iron Man suit itself and refused to use one himself to fight, as it would be a grievous insult to his loyalty to the Super Sentai/Power Rangers fandom, until he was reminded that it's the man that makes the suit, not the other way around. As such, when Shin first confronted Tony, he called the tyrant "the Iron Man destined to rule the universe", and himself as "the Iron Man destined to save it". Even after having to kill the tyrant, Shin lamented his decision, and how Tony chose to persist in his own folly instead of accept responsibility for all the resentments and toxicity he incited in the hearts of friend and foe alike.

Iron Majin

With Tony Stark completing his unwitting transformation into the very thing he despises above all else, a living god of destruction who is an even worse monster than Thanos, Shin is strongly convinced that Iron Man is now the shame of the Avengers, a being of pure evil who wants to punish the entire universe for rejecting his supremely selfish take on heroism, that he should be the only superhero in existence. Shin did not want to kill Tony, however, at least not without first giving him a fair and unbiased trial for his crimes.

Shin immediately knew it was the evil god itself that killed Pepper upon its revival, as Tony never wanted to kill Pepper despite her defying his twisted will, but only treat her as a prisoner in his dystopian world. But even when it briefly seemed all was lost, the Dark Infinity Stones were destroyed and Shin declared his unshakeable faith in his and the Avengers Sentai Alliance's shared values has ensured that Iron Majin's hubris will never prevail, and destroying it with Mugen DaiZyuJin's help allows him to finally put the past behind him as he and his ASA are hailed as the true heroes.

Lord Drakkon

Shin was shocked to see that Drakkon mysteriously revived and is working with another corrupt soul like himself. But despite Drakkon's depravity, Shin still sees (barely) enough good in him to repeatedly warn him that Iron Majin is most likely using him for his own agenda, all out of respect for the idea that the actual Tommy Oliver would do the same thing. Shin hoped that even if Drakkon wouldn't turn a new leaf for his sake, then Drakkon would at least ditch Tony before it's too late, and his warnings were justified in the end, as Tony Stark sacrificed the fallen Ranger purely for his self-preservation.

Musical Theme(s)

Shin's theme is a cover of Captain America's theme in Marvel VS Capcom, as produced by GaMetal[18]. This ties into his use of the moniker Captain America to honor Steve Rogers.

Other associated themes are "Fight as One" by Bad City and "Go Go Power Rangers" by Ron Wasserman.

When Shin uses a Legendary Weapon, the corresponding "Power Rangers" theme tune plays[19]. For those weapons belonging to pre-Zyuranger mecha, an instrumental of their corresponding insert song is used instead. Some special cases for this are as follows:

  • GoRenger and JAKQ mecha weapons: GoRenger and JAKQ OP themes(fan game only)
  • Dairanger mecha weapons: "White Ranger Tiger Power"
  • Kakuranger mecha weapons: Alien Rangers theme
  • ToQger mecha weapons: Power Rangers RPM Beta theme
  • Zyuohger mecha weapons: Power Rangers Wild Force Beta theme

Etymology

"Shin Seigi" means "(真の正義) true justice" in japanese, fitting into how Shin acts like a traditional hero, perhaps more so than the first Captain America (in the MCU), and in stark contrast to Iron Man's unhealthy pragmatism and preference to operate in the shades of gray.

Shin may also mean "(神) god", which can allude to him acting as mankind's savior from the Stark Administration, or "(真) true/truth", in relating to him seeing through Tony Stark's egotistical justifications for his less-than-heroic behaviors[4][11][12][13][16] and encouraging others to do the same.

The name of his team is aptly called Shin Avengers (真 アベンジャーズ Shin Abenjāzu).

Trivia

  • Shin has the same japanese voice as Terra, as well as Zero in Mega Man X series.
    • If Marvel VS Super Sentai is a Super Sentai production by proxy, this would by Ryotaro Okiayu's first heroic role in that series.
    • His standing pose seems to be a mix of Mega Man X in his first three games, and Zero in the Mega Man Zero series.
    • His parents are named after Zero's english voice(Wayne Doster) in Mega Man X4 and Classic Mega Man's japanese voice(Ayaka Fukuhara) in Mega Man 11.
      • Wayne's given name could also have been derived from Bruce Wayne/Batman of DC Comics fame.
        • On a semi-related note, Shin's role is similar to Batman's in Injustice: Gods Among Us; both have founded a group dedicated to taking down a corrupt hero gone mad.
  • He was born on the same day the Sega Dreamcast released; September 9, 1999
    • This is also a reference to his origin on Earth 199999 (in an alternate dimension/timeline).
  • The colored edges on the star around his suit's arc reactor are, in counter-clockwise order of red, blue, yellow, pink, and green, patterned after the numeric lineup of the GoRengers.
  • The "voice" for his equipment is performed by Power Rangers vocalist Ron Wasserman, in homage to the trend started by the Goseigers with their own equipment.
  • He became New Captain America and left for the Tokuverse on what would be the 30th anniversary of Power Rangers.
  • Despite looking more like the 2017 movie version of Jason Lee Scott and being portrayed by the same person, his personality learns more on the original TV series version.
    • Like the former version of Jason, Shin also had a pretty sour relationship with his father, until Wayne redeems himself like Mr. Collins, a similar father to another Red Ranger.
  • Shin is the only member of the Shin Avengers who has never died even once in any timeline or dream sequence, whether some version of him does or does not exist in the Prime timeline.
