Manpuku Aburame is the leader of the Kusare Gedoshu, a group of powerful Gedoushu that exudes a corpse-like stench that was sealed away three centuries ago by Retsudou Shiba. However, he is revived by Dokoku along with his followers during the summer time. After being slain by the five Shinkengers, he is destroyed by Kyoryu ShinkenOh.
A remnant of his Kusare Gedoushu attempt to take revenge for him in a later Shinkenger episode, but they too are defeated by the powers associated with the Kyoryu Origami.
