Akan was a Youma accidentally created by Zoisite, who had intended to use the Black Crystal to transform Naru Osaka instead. The Crystal's beam hit an actor portraying the sentai hero Redman, and he was transformed into Akan. He attacked by throwing marimo balls that would expand to cover the bodies of those struck by them.


  • Akan's name could be derived from the word "aka" (あか; red) or the Kansai-ben word "akan" (明かん; wrong/no good). His attack was likely a reference to Lake Akan in Hokkaido, famous for its seaweed growing into balls called "marimo" (毬藻).
