The Animal Channels are special weapons used by Ken Joshima.

Description[edit | edit source]

Ken has sets of animal teeth that he puts over his own, similar to how a game cartridge is inserted to a console. The channels modify his physiology to reflect that of the animal, gaining their innate abilities, such as speed and strength.

When using a channel, Ken not only gains abilities of animals but also changes his appearance a bit to resemble that animal, including hair, claws, fangs or even horns. When Ken enters a channel, a small head of the respective animal appears on his left cheek, with the name of the animal at its teeth.
