|This article is about a/an hero in Sekai Ninja Sen Jiraiya.|
Together with Shu Karasuma, Space Sheriff Shaider, Jiraiya pursued the Space Ninja Demost, an old enemy of Toha Yamaji turned member of the cult Genmakuu. Engaging him in battle, the two Space Squad members were unable to contain him before he used his ninja arts to open a temporary dimensional hole leading to a another universe which he intended to claim for the Genmakuu. Through replicating Demost's technique, Jiraiya was able to keep the hole open for Shaider to follow him in Vavilos, later followed by Gavan's Dolgiran.
Though maintaining the hole proved an extremely taxing ordeal for Jiraiya as time went on, he endured just long enough for Gavan and Shaider to return home with the captive Demost. Soon after, on Planet Bird, Jiraiya presented a GNS broadcast to Geki and Shu, making them aware that a Genmakuu member had instigated a fire at a skyscraper on the planet Arimei which claimed the lives of over 900 people. This atrocity made Geki realize that the Space Squad needed to collaborate with a rescue force.
