Dai Shi is the main antagonist of the 2008 Power Rangers series Power Rangers: Jungle Fury.
Dai Shi believed that animals should rule the planet, and humans were to be erased. Over 10,000 years ago, brave warriors channeled their Animal Spirits, and after the Beast War, they were able to imprison Dai Shi. The Pai Zhuq was formed to serve as protectors of him.
In the present day, Dai Shi accidentally escaped, kills Master Mao and flees the Pai Zhuq temple. He enters the body of Jarrod and change his personality, making him think he is Dai Shi. He returned to his palace where he began to command his assistant Camille and his army of the undead.
Dai Shi lives off fear and the more humanity grows scared, the stronger he becomes. With the help of the Five Fingers of Poison, people's fear increased and he was able to morph into an armoured Lion form using Jarrod's Lion spirit.
Dai Shi doesn't care if Camille gets destroyed, just as long as she made progress in his war against humanity. He sees everyone of his warriors as just a tool he can use to succeed in his mission, and they don't really mean anything to him beyond their purpose. Living as a human, he believed he knew how to defeat the Rangers. He retained Jarrod's memories and they were one, but eventually Dai Shi started to lose control of Jarrod.
Casey fought Dai Shi and he was forced out of Jarrod. Dai Shi opened a portal to the Spirit World and revived all of his fallen warriors: Rinshi, Rinshi Beasts, the Overlords, the Five Fingers of Poison and the Phantom Beasts. All seven masters of the Rangers united and progressed to the highest level of Pai Zhuq. Dai Shi took their animal spirits to become his ultimate Dragon form. He was weakened by Jarrod and finally destroyed by the three guardians.
