Super Sentai: Non-Color Teammate Names (2019)

UPDATED 10/19/19
I'm counting only select Extra Heroes. Whole teams that didn't have colors in their names: JAKQ, Changeman, Zyuranger, Dairanger, Carranger and Toqger. I think I am counting the heroes with the word from their team in their names, except for those in Hurricanger.

King Ranger
The Ohrangers had colors in their name. In Power Rangers Zeo, he is the Gold Ranger. Toei considers him a Black Ranger. The kanji symbol of King is on his head and belt.

In Carranger, he was an extra hero but anyway, he didn't have 'Racer' in their name.

Time Fire
I think he was the first team member to not have a color name in a team that had color names. In Power Rangers Time Force, he was the Quantum Ranger.
 The Hurricanger had color names but the Goraijer did not. They had the names of their insects: Kabuto Raijer and Kuwagata Raijer. In Ninja Storm, they had color names: Crimson and Navy.

In Hurricanger, he was Shurikenger. Shuriken is the star shape. In Ninja Storm, he was Green Samurai Ranger.

The American team didn't want to use the name obviously. The name is fine for Japan, but not for America. But a cool name none the less. But I wouldn't want kids saying 'Killer.'

Just a power-up but treated toy-wise as a sixth ranger.

He calls himself a "Daybreak" detective. Break could refer to his electric arracks or that stated previously. In SPD, he was the Omega Ranger.

'Master' of them all, makes sense. Also, funny cause he's a dog. He's his own master.

Deka Swan
Her name is Swan and her powers are swan inspired. In SPD, she was Kat Ranger because she was a feline-like alien. The helmet does look cat-like.

Deka Bright
Coolest name ever. In SPD, she was the Nova Ranger.

Magi Shine
He's shiny and his name is shine.

Magi Mother
She was a mother, obviously but I don't know, was she really just a mother? She was a warrior, not just a mother.

He can chop things. In Jungle Fury, he was Rhino Ranger.

Toei counts him as a Silver Ranger and doesn't have 'Silver' in his name and suit seemed the most like an Extra Hero. In Megaforce, he was Robo Knight and treated as a Sixth Ranger.

Stag Buster and Beet Buster
They were the fourth and fifth rangers but they had their insect names but not color names. In Power Rangers, they have color names but their insects were changed. Kabuto Beetle to Mantis and Stag Beetle into Scarab. 

In Ninninger, they had the color names in Japanese. Starninger was the only one with a shape name and not a color. In Ninja Steel, he was the Gold Ranger. 

ZyuOh The World
In Zyuohger, the main team had beast names but ZyuOh The World has a unique name as he is made of three animals and not one.

Ryu Commander
In Kyuranger, he did have the Violet name temporarily but ultimately was 'commander.'

Houhou Soldier
He was the second Red Ranger in Kyuranger so he got another name. 

Paten X / Lupin X
He was the 7th warrior in the series but the fourth of each team in Lupinranger vs Patranger.
