Heronies in other Saban Tokusatsu

Kaitlin Star (VR Troopers, 1994-1996)
Kaitlin was the only female part of the VR Troopers. She wore white, red, and yellow. In her other VR form, she had the helmet of the Red Ranger with white, red and yellow. In the second season, her mirror twin became her Double mode, which was footage of another hero Helen Lady in Speilban. My personal theory as to why VR Troopers was canceled because they didn't have footage of a girl hero anymore. I don't know why they didn't just use the B-Fighter footage, it was team of three as well, I guess Saban wanted to start fresh with Beetleborgs. And fans arguably liked that more than VRT.

Red Striker Borg (BBB, 1996)
The sole female in Big Bad Beetleborgs, it was the same as Reddle in B-Fighter. As I have mentioned before, the actresses were switched on both shows, as a coincidence and not planned.

Plantinum Purple Borg (Beetleborgs Metallix, 1997)
The Beetleborgs Metallix were unique to the B-Fighters Kabuto that they had Mega Spectra Armor (Mega Sector Armour) like the Power Rangers' Battlizers. The armors didn't appear in the original B-Fighters. There was also the Ladyborg but she had no human counterpart. She is the only female purple warrior in the Saban camp.

Deirdre, Mystic Knight of Air (Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog, 1998)
Mystic Knights was an original production by Saban, not related to a Japanese Tokusatsu show at all. Her armor was white. She like the other females in this post were by themselves. She was a fiercely independent princess.
