Super Sentai: Different shades of Colors 2010

UPDATED 6/29/10 10 PM EST
Here is the second round of the colors used so far for auxiliary mecha in Sentai. All of them have different shades in their subcategories as well. Many of the auxiliary mecha have debatable colors, is it cyan or aqua or green? Power Ranger names are in italics. I guess this post isn't friendly to those who are color blind. To be clear, I am only covering auxiliary 'zords' and any mecha belonging to antagonists (like Wolzard, and Mele), not main zords of Rangers. Also covering mechas/zords of Kabuto Raijer/Crimson Ranger, Kuwagata Raijer/Navy Ranger and Geki Violet/Wolf Ranger. Last time I covered the warriors too, now the mecha only.

Orange (10)
Gao Giraffe/Giraffe Zord was more like a carrot orange, Gao Jaguar of Gao God/(not given a name) is a pale light orange with tinges of amber color (Crayola's Atomic Tangerine). It is close to peach-orange or coral but it's not. Ankyloveilus/Ankylozord was a yellow-orange or Gamboge, GoGo Drill/Drill Driver was a plain orange, maybe like Home Depot orange, Carrigator/Croczord is a vivid strong shade of orange and Kabuto Origami of Shinkenger (2009) is almost like a orange-red-y color. TyrannoHeader of Goseiger (2010) is a bright orange and one of the Exotic Brother dragon headers is a pale orange-yellow. Kabuto Headder is a dark orange with silver.

Different shades of Green (10)
Gao Gorrilla/Green Gorilla was a regular green, Gao Ligator/Alligator was a dark green, but the toy was just a darker shade that Gorrilla. Gao Deer/Deer was a light paler green. Trance Spider/Spider Power Sphere was a basic green, the same shade as Shurikenger/Green Samuari Ranger. Parasarokkiru/Parazord was lime green. Rin Chameleon/Chameleon was a basic green. GoGoMixer/Cement Driver was like a JohnDeer Green. GekiElephant/Elephant sure does stand out with the other greens doesn't it? I really feel it is part of the teal/cyan ones but EVERYONE, many fans, say it is green. So I put it here to show it is not really that green. I believe it is a dark teal or dark Cerulean. One of the Exotic Brother dragons of Goseiger (2010) is a toxic acid green and the Mystic Runner is a dark shade of forest green, almost the shade of the Trance Spider.

Periwinkle / Cyan / Teal (13)
Gao Elephant/Elephant Zord, as I mentioned before was the first to be of this unique combination of the colors blue and green. This color is the most highly debated color, is it green or blue? Gao Elephant is teal or cerulean and Gao Rhino is Colombina Blue or a mix of maya blue with cerulean. Gao Condor was like a dark cyan. Tortuise Hammer/Turtle Mace, one of the Karakuri Balls, was a Cornflower Blue. Dimenokodon/Dimetrozord was like a light teal, Go Go Shovel/Shovel Driver was cyan (brighter than periwinkle), Geki Shark/Shark Zord was aqua, K-Line/(not given a name in RPM) is light periwinkle, very pale, and Marlin Kaijiki (Shinkenger 2009) is a dark cyan, it is more blue than green. And as for Goseiger 2010, we got the three Seaick Brothers that are more or less the same shade of teal. The Sawshark is a bit darker and the Mantaray is brighter. And one of the Exotic Brothers is a light sea-green shade too.

Indigo / Navy (9)
Whatever people might call this color, purple or blue, it is a darker shade of blue. I would consider Squid Attacker/(no name given), GoGo Crane/Crane Driver, and GekiBat/Bat Zord indigo. Gorai Stag/Navy Beetlezord is of course Navy. Jumbo-whale/Whale Zord is Royal Blue, a light navy color if that makes sense. Carnoryutus (Abaranger 2003) is a interesting shade, like a pale Ultramarine and a bit grey-ier. Goseiger (2010): Gosei Bird is indigo-cobalt blue, Sea Lion is regular blue and Gosei Dolphin is dark blue with yellow.

Purple / Violet (7)
GaoHammer/Hammerhead Shark was the first purple anything in Sentai history, it was a vivid and perky shade of violet. GaoMajiro/Armadillo Zord was a lavender color, light violet. Kabuto Gani/Sting Blaster was a like a Royal Purple. Bakikeonagrus/Cephalazord is a mildly-dark violet with mixes of red or Electric Indigo. Geki Wolf/Wolf Zord was more of a purple than a violet. Violet is tangy, more pink-ish. I am covering GekiViolet/Wolf Ranger's mecha/zord because there is so little purple. Ika Origami of Shinkenger (2009) is white and lavender. One of the Exotic Brother Dragons of Goseiger (2010) is a tangy purple.

Non-Ranger White (8)
These are auxilary zords that don't belong to White Rangers. Gao Polar/Polar Bear and Gao Panda were silverly-white. (Gao Panda only appeared as a toy and CD exclusive) Gattling Leo/Lion Laser was just plain white. Unikirion/Brightstar was plain white, maybe a bit pearl-y. T-Line/(not given a name in RPM) was like a silver-y or grey-ish white. Tora Origami of Shinekenger (2009) is white and black. Crow Header of Goseiger (2010) is white, red and silver with green eye.

Crimson / Maroon / Different shades of Red (14)
The Gao Sawshark of Gao God/(not given a name) was a violet-tinged Maroon and so was Kishamoth/Paleozord. Gorai Beetle/Crimson Insectizord was Crimson. Stegsorideon or Stegazord was Burgundy. Stryacosaurus/Mezodon Rover was like a red-orange. The ones that were just plain red was Gao Kong, Gao Falcon/Falcon, The Stamp/Super Stamp, Pitashito Hitode/Star Blazer and GogoJet/Sonic Streaker. Kyoryu Origami is like a dark crimson and the Bull Ushi Origami of Shinkenger (2009) is a shade of red like Stryacosaurus. Ushi Origami of Shinkenger is just red. Kyoryu Origami is a scarlet and maroonish color. HawkHeader of Goseiger (2010) is red, a bit deeper shade than the Dragon. GoseiSkyleon is bright red.

Non-Ranger Black (8)
A new shade I decided to cover. Gao Bear/Bear Zord was a pale black, GaoLeon was a Gunmetal black in Gaoranger (2001). Valkyrion/Catastros of Magiranger (2005) was black. RinLion of Gekiranger (2007) was black and gold. The three Engines of the DaiShogun of Go-Onger (2008) were black with red and yellow accents. KuwagataHeader of Goseiger (2010) is a different shade of black. Crocodile Headder is silver and black .

Non-Ranger Shades of Yellow (4)
Goat Crusher/Ram Hammer of Hurricanger (2002)/Ninja Storm was just yellow. Spin Bee/Bee Spinner was a golden yellow. Rhino Header of Goseiger (2010) is a lemon-y yellow. And Elephant Header is orange-yellow.
