History[edit | edit source]
Seven Years Ago[edit | edit source]
While going on a mission with Turkey, Donatello and Mikey, Mikey asks Donatello about limiter releasing. Donatello doesn't want to talk about it, however Turkey explains that it removes the limit of the avatar, gaining physical strength, but damage becomes real. Mikey guesses that Kaburagi had done it, but he denies it.
Mikey starts climbing the ranking and gets in the top. But as his ranking incremental slows down, he goes to Kaburagi asking for an advice. He sees Kaburagi having information about limit releasing and asks him about it, explaining that he fears that one day he will be replaced and wants to feel of use. Kaburagi ends up agreeing, but warns him to not go beyond 20% as that way he can still survive a hit.
On the following mission, Mikey had removed his limiter and feels the power increase and enjoys the battle. However, he gets caught for cheating and gets scrapped for it. The Top Ranking team gets disbanded with Donatello and Turkey sent to the correction facility. Kaburagi is forced to work as armor repairer and by night as recovery agent, having to discover bugs and recover the chips from humans.

He can fly using his jetpack

Relationships[edit | edit source]
Kurenai seems to be in love with him but this is very one-sided. Kaburagi respects her as a strong warrior but does not show equal feelings back.
He is Minato's good friend, which he became back in his top rank days. It's very possible that they could have been more than that though, given how the voice actor of Minato constantly talk about how their relationship being more than best friends. In episode 11, he asks Minato to fight with him to the end, which he does.
He is also friends with Natsume and wants to change the world for her to live in. Natsume inspires him, even when she's naïve and reckless, and he wants to protect her.
