Power Rangers Super Megaforce: Who counts as a Sixth Ranger?


I have recently been answering questions on Answer.fm which is inspired by Razzle Dazzle doing it. Fellow New Power Force member Eric Berry also does it. If you do ask a question anonymously, understand that I do not know who you are so if you ask a follow-up question, please do preface what the question is about. So if you want me to follow you, tell me your twitter account.
 
 Anyway, I got a question about Magna Defender being a Sixth Ranger. And now that Bandai is releasing the Sixth Rangers as Legendary Action Heroes, there are some missing like White Dino Ranger, Silver Space Ranger, Solaris Knight, Mercury Ranger, White Rhino Ranger, RPM Gold and RPM Silver. I heard a rumor that we will be getting more Legendary Action Heroes during Dino Charge. And fans have been wanting Robo Knight to be replaced by Titanium since after Gokaiger finished or during. And since the Super Megaforce Rangers don't use keys to become Megaforce Rangers, they have to become Megaforce first and Robo Knight still exists, it comes to the awkward notion that Orion has a Robo Knight key and has it on his chest. The Japanese footage used in "Silver Lining Part 2" the rangers became Silver in honor of the new Silver Ranger, blue became "Robo Knight' but this was cut out probably because it would be weird. If it is not obvious, Super Megaforce is just using Gokaiger footage more than anything, not making a lot of new footage like Disney would.

 Green Ranger
He is one of the fifteen Sixth Rangers on Silver Ranger's armor, he has a Legendary Action Hero figure and has a Ranger Key. He is present in the Legendary Battle.
 

White Ranger
He is one of the fifteen Sixth Rangers on Silver Ranger's armor, he has a Legendary Action Hero figure and has a Ranger Key. We don't see Tommy in the White Ranger suit in the Legendary Battle (except for a faraway shot from Japanese footage) but Tommy does use Saba. In Super Megaforce, Orion becomes him in "The Perfect Storm."
 
Gold Zeo Ranger
He is one of the 15 Sixth Rangers on the Silver Ranger's Gold Armor, he does have a Legendary Action Hero toy and supposedly will be getting a Ranger Key. He is briefly in the Legendary Battle thanks to Japanese footage. At PMC 2014, he was featured in a postcard advertising the new Ranger Keys. In Super Megaforce, Orion becomes him twice, once in "Silver Lining Part 2" and "The Perfect Storm."
 
Phantom Ranger
As I have said before, he was VRV Master in Carranger and not really a sixth ranger nor an extra hero, he was not included in Gokaiger. But he was voted for Morphin Madness to have a Ranger Key by fans and a key did appear at SDCC 2014. He did get a Halloween Costume two years in a row. He has not been spotted in the Legendary Battle, most likely the suit has been lost and Saban was not going to remake it.

 Silver Space Ranger
He hasn't gotten a Legendary Action Hero nor a Ranger Key has been seen (except for SDCC 2013). He is one of the 15 sixth rangers on the Silver Morpher and Armor. He did not get a Halloween costume back in 1998 for unknown reasons. He is indeed in the Legendary Battle. Orion becomes him in "Legendary Battle."
 
Magna Defender
  Saban made Magna Defender a sixth ranger and Black Knight in Japan was sort of one but Toei counted him as an 'Extra Hero' in Gokaiger. In the US, he did get a Halloween costume. In Gokaiger, even though he does not appear on Silver's morpher or armor, Silver does get his key as Black Knight is his hero and does become him. In Super Megaforce, since they are sticking to the Japanese footage, Magna Defender is not on the Silver Ranger's Gold Armor but most likely Orion will become him. Now does Saban count him as a Sixth Ranger? Magna Defender does appear in the Legendary Battle in the last episode, no other Extra Heroes do not (Blue Senturion, Sentinel Knight, etc). Orion never becomes him in Super Megaforce.
 
In the Nickelodeon website there is a game called Power Rangers Super Megaforce: Legacy and Orion has a Magna Defender key. Now will Bandai make a Magna Defender Action Hero figure? Who knows?
 
Titanium Ranger
As we know, he was not in Sentai and is American only so he does not appear on Orion's morpher nor Gold Armor. None of the Super Megaforce Rangers will become him nor does he have a key on the show, BUT he does appear in the Legendary Battle. It is said Saban had to remake the costume. Power Morphicon 2014 had a special metallic key of him. He does have a Legendary Action Hero.
 
Quantum Ranger
He is one of the fifteen Sixth Rangers on Silver Ranger's armor, he has a Legendary Action Hero figure and is believed he will get a Ranger Key. He is indeed in the Legendary Battle. Orion never becomes him in Super Megaforce.
 
Lunar Wolf Ranger
He is one of the fifteen Sixth Rangers on Silver Ranger's armor, he has a Legendary Action Hero figure and is believed he will get a Ranger Key. He appears briefly in the Legendary Battle due to footage. Orion never becomes him in Super Megaforce.
 
Green Samurai Ranger (Ninja Storm)
He is one of the fifteen Sixth Rangers on Silver Ranger's armor, he has a Legendary Action Hero figure and supposedly will get a Ranger Key (even if a lighter shade of green). He appears briefly in footage of Legendary Batlte. Orion never becomes him in Super Megaforce.
 
White Dino Ranger
He is technically a fifth ranger in Dino Thunder but since Gokaiger treated him as a Sixth Ranger, he is on the Silver Ranger's morpher and armor, so he is consider that here. Disney kind of considered him a sixth as well as he, Lunar Wolf and Green Samurai were 'sixth rangers' at Disney World Hollywood Studios back from 2005 to 2010. He does not have a Legendary Action Hero figure yet. He is supposed to get a Ranger Key. In 2004, he did not get a Halloween costume. He is indeed in the Legendary Battle. Orion does become him in Super Megaforce episode "United As One.
 
Shadow Ranger
There is confusion if he is a Sixth Ranger in both Power Rangers and Super Sentai as he was technically sixth but Omega is treated more as one. Since he is an 'Extra Hero' in Gokaiger, he will be as well in Super Megaforce. He will get a Ranger Key. It is unknown if he will get a Legendary Action Hero. He is not in the Legendary Battle. No one becomes him in Super Megaforce.
 
Omega Ranger
He is one of the fifteen Sixth Rangers on Silver Ranger's armor, he has a Legendary Action Hero figure and supposedly will get a Ranger Key. He briefly appears in the Legendary Battle. Orion never becomes him in Super Megaforce.
 
Solaris Knight
He is one of the fifteen Sixth Rangers on Silver Ranger's armor, he does not have a Legendary Action Hero figure and supposedly will get a Ranger Key. He briefly appears in the Legendary Battle thanks to Legacy War footage and Orion never becomes him.
 
Mercury Ranger
He is one of the fifteen Sixth Rangers on Silver Ranger's armor, he has a Legendary Action Hero figure and supposedly will get a Ranger Key. He is briefly in the Legendary Battle thanks to Legacy War footage. Orion never becomes him. Only Jake and Troy become Red Operation Overdrive.
 
Rhino Ranger
He is technically 5th of Jungle Fury and fans were confused when he was considered a regular 5th and not 6th like White Dino but like I say to my nephew, "That's the way it is." He is briefly seen in the Legendary Battle. Emma becomes him various times.

 RPM Gold
He is one of the fifteen Sixth Rangers. He does not have Legendary Action Hero figures. He will supposedly get Ranger Keys. The joint RPM Gold/Silver Key doesn't seem to be in the plans to be made. He didn't get a Halloween costume in 2009. He is seen briefly in the Legendary Battle due to footage and Orion becomes a joint ranger.
 
RPM Silver
She are one of the fifteen Sixth Rangers. She does not have Legendary Action Hero figures. She will supposedly get Ranger Keys. The joint RPM Gold/Silver Key doesn't seem to be in the plans to be made. She did not get a Halloween costume for kids in 2009. She is briefly seen in the Legendary Battle due to footage.
 

Samurai Gold
He is one of the fifteen Sixth Rangers on Silver Ranger's armor, he has a Legendary Action Hero figure and supposedly will get a Ranger Key. He is indeed in the Legendary Battle. Orion becomes him in "Silver Lining Part 2."
 
Robo Knight
He was considered by fans as an 'Extra Hero' as he never had an identity other than himself (oh and a zord). Anyways, he is considered a Sixth in both Gokaiger and Super Megaforce. He is one of the 15 6th Rangers, has an Action Hero and has a Ranger Key. He is briefly seen in the Legendary Battle. Orion never becomes him.

I think the spirit rangers are the sixth rangers in Jungle Fury, especially the shark ranger since they were the sixth rangers to join and how they were evil and turned good like Tommy and Trent!

There's a petition to sign to have Saban remake Power Rangers Super Megaforce, but it still needs about another 900,000 signatures.
