Similar Looking Evil Sentai/Rangers

UPDATE Oct 8, 2011 10PM EST
Here is a list of 'Evil Sentai' or evil Power Rangers that looked just like the main team. Note: The Nejiranger/Psycho Rangers also originally looked like the Megaranger/PR but later took other forms. Gingaman of Fiveman also briefly looked like Fiveman.

Fake Jackers

In episode 22 of JAKQ Dengekitai, thanks to Scrap. They had powers of invisibility.

Fake Battle FeverEpisode 9 of Battle Fever J had 3 ordinary men who were brainwashed into pretending to be the Battle Fever team. They never actually wore the suits though.

I'm pretty sure the black neck ones did appear in mystic force, but I can't remember which episode

I tought the evil rangers did appear in Mystic Force, when they battled Hekatoid.

In Fiveman, the Gingaman team of Chevalier stole their powers and became an evil Fiveman force.

Lavender Ranger said...

that's the wrong timeranger/timeforce picture that's from "reflections of evil" instead of from "trust and triumph".

The Japanese Wikipedia has an entire list of Evil Sentai in Super Sentai. Here's the pre-Jetman ones you list.

JAKQ Dengekitai - The Fake Jackers from episode 22
Battle Fever J - Episode 9 had three ordinary men who were brainwashed into pretending to be the Battle Fever team. They never actually wore the suits though.
Goggle V - The Death Dark V in Episode 45. Goggle Red was a monster named Tanukimozuh
Dynaman - Episode 24 had Kitsuneshinka, who could disguise himself as any of the Dynaman, including the Dynarobo.
Fiveman - While Gingaman is technically mentioned already, in episode 42 they stole the Fiveman team's powers and wore their suits. I believe they would scarfs IIRC.

Some corrections and clarifications on my previous post after seeing the episodes I've listed:

*The "Dummy JAKQ" (per actual name used on the show) in Episode 22 of JAKQ Dengekitai never actually fought the heroes. They were really four Crimers who sparred with Devil Scrap's Scrap Gundan, the actual villains in the episode. The Scrap Army are probably much closer to being the Evil Sentai on this show, even though they looked like zombie-like humans and never wore any Super Sentai-like uniform. Their names were Dark Scrap, Brown Scrap, Black Scrap and Gray Scrap.

*The Battle Fever impersonators were really lame. They were basically just three guys (not five) in motorcycle gear who went around telling people that they were the Battle Fever before doing nasty stuff like robbing gun shops. I don't think they should even count as an Evil Sentai, but whatever.

*Death Dark V - Tanukimozuu was actually disguised as Goggle Black and Goggle Pink as well in addition to Goggle Red. In fact, he only disguised himself as Goggle Red to show off his powers to the Death Dark leaders. He spends more time disguised as Goggle Black than any other member, hence the episode title, "The Two Blacks". The Death Dark V only appeared at the end of the episode and they were really five Madaramen whose appearances were altered by Tanukimozuu's shapeshifting powers.

*Unless I missed something, Kitsuneshinka could only disguise himself as one Dynaman member at a time. Although he did disguise himself as the Dynarobo (done with an obvious split screen effect, probably because they didn't have a second suit). Here's a hilarious scene from the episode where they managed to call out Kitsuneshinka from his disguise.

*When the Ginga Sentai disguised themselves as the Fiveman, you can tell they're evil since they use real guns on people. They each wore a color-coordinated neck scarf as well.

Here's a screenshot of every evil Sentai I've just mentioned. If you need pictures of the Scrap Army and Battle Fever impersonators as well, feel free to ask.
