Charting Common Threads in Power Rangers/Super Sentai

4/27/11 6:30 PM EST

Maybe I do have OCD, I made this chart in just three hours. I got inspired by this and wanted to highlight common threads in Power Ranegr seasons, lots of them I already mentioned them before in other posts but never all together.

Hey i was wonder what Computer in HQ meant cause (in space,prlg,prlr,prtf,spd and rpm) used computers to gather info on montsers and other stuff.

Uh.. so there's more than six in the end of Samurai? Interesting, that's like saying that there's more than six at the end of Mighty Morphin...

Dekaranger had an inter-ranger Romance (Sen/Umeko). Go-onger did not. Also, does GoseiGreen count as a hero dying forever? Other than that, these lists are great

There are aux-zords in Lost Galaxy

MMPR teamed up with mask rider.

Turbo Rangers teamed up with phantom ranger (who wasn't a sixth)
They also teamed up with BBM

Lavender Ranger said...

I made mistakes, i am human.

Wasn't insulting you, was letting you know so you could fix it.

in Abaranger Abareblack fights his wife (Jannu/Mahoro) and his daughter (Lije/Lijewel); so "relative is bad guy" is not specific of Magiranger in 2000s sentai

Lightspeed and Jungle Fury had battlizers. They might have had different names, but they were Battlizers.

Space rangers teamed up with Adam, Justin, and the Phantom Ranger. Technically they also teamed up with Trey and the Blue Senturion.

Cool list.

Um, the Hero Dies Forever in Hurricanger is marked wrong. It should be in Abaranger.

Andrey said...

Um, I don't know if the Hero Dies Forever mark in Hurricanger is accurate, because the Versus movies (except for the Gokaiger one) are out of continuity, and Shurikenger appears alive and well in Abaranger vs. Hurricanger.

However, you forgot to mark Abaranger under this category, because the final fate of Mikoto Nakadai is fairly common knowledge.

All in all, nice compilation.

And to the rest of the people: STOP REFERRING TO THE SENTAI CHARTS AS IF THEY WERE POWER RANGERS TOO, please. They're similar, okay, but they're also different.
