Updated 9/26/16
Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger (1992) Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (1993-1995)
Episodes: 50 Episodes: 155
Story: Bandora the witch started a war on the dinosaurs due to the death of her son. After she caused much devastation, the Guardian Beasts sealed her and her minions on the planet Nemesis. 5 members of each of the ancient human tribes were cryogenically frozen to combat the witch when she escaped from her imprisonment. Red's elder brother the Dragon Ranger was released accidentally and fought against them because of jealousy and vengeance even though his life was limited. Story: When Rita Repulsa got out from her prison, Zordon formed the Power Rangers. Five students used Power Coins to transform and found evil with their Dinozords. Rita gives Tommy the sixth Power Coin and he becomes the Evil Green Ranger. He joins the team but looses his powers twice. Lord Zedd arrives and the Rangers get new zords. Zedd and Rita marry, Rita's dad and brother arrive, leading the Rangers to get Ninja Zords.

Mood: Melodramatic, comical, steep in mythology Mood: Happy Comical, Campy, Soap-Operatic
Sixth: Burai is dying due to complications to being frozen, when he is out of the Lapseless Room, the green candle burns out his life. He ends up dying. Sixth: Rita uses the Green Candle to use up Tommy's powers. He returns thanks to Zordon when Rita takes the 5 coins. Zedd later eradicates the powers.
Villains sing and mostly comic relief, but sometimes crude and cruel. Villains are mostly goofy and comic relief, save for Lord Zedd in early Season 2 and Master Vile.
Five boys, one girl Four boys, two girls.
Ally is a wizard, disguised as a human and some elf-like creatures. Allies are a giant head Zordon, used to be a wizard and Alpha 5, a robot.
The 25 'episodes' Toei made for Power Rangers did not appear in Super Sentai. Additions include footage of Dairanger in Season 2 (Thunderzords, monsters, and Serpentera), and Kakuranger in Season 3 (Ninjazords, monsters, Master Vile, Rito Repulso, and Ninjor). Also Toei made 25 episodes of footage featuring Zyuranger.
Conclusion: The series is a mix bag, people who didn't grow up with MMPR, don't like it. MMPR fans are fascinated by it. The series is serious but also very goofy and oddball, it is crude and sometimes awkward. Conclusion: Fans remember it fondly. Small budget didn't help some choppy editing of footage, the dubbing on Rita was jarring, things did pick up in season 2 and tittered away in season 3. The cast changes also didn't help character development. Didn't follow footage, did sometimes follow episode plots.

Ninja Sentai Kakuranger (1994) Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers (1996)
Episodes: 53 Episodes: 10
Story: Descendants of legendary ninjas are fooled into releasing the evil Youkai and they are joined by three other descendants to fight the Youkai with the aid of the Three God Generals.

Story: When Master Vile reverts the Power Rangers into children again, the Alien Rangers from Aquitar, planet made completely of water arrive and fight Rita and Zedd. The Rangers go on a quest to retrieve the Zeo Sub-Crystals to return to normal. Was not at all like the footage, as it was never mentioned they were ninjas.

Villains are goofy but also deadly and serious. Villains are same as MMPR.
Four boys, one girl; girl villain. Four boys, one girl
The Kakuranger ride around in a bus. Aquitar is a planet of all water, they need water to hydrate.
Conclusion: Kakuranger has comic-book graphics, can be serious but mostly played for fun, a bit goofy and erratic. Conclusion: Fans like to point it as important, but most fans do consider it as part of season three.

Choriki Sentai Ohranger (1995) Power Rangers Zeo (1996)
Episodes: 48 Episodes: 50
Story: The Baranoia Empire, a robotic army created by the ancient civilization of Pangaea, are determined to wipe away human life and are combated by five UAOH officers using Tetrahedron super powers and Overtech Hardware.

Fans didn't like it and it was rumored to almost stop the Super Sentai franchise. Conclusion: Fans like it, it was serious and fun, it had a bigger budget and expanded on the characters, especially new one Tanya and Tommy.

Story: When lady pirate Divatox threatens the safety of Earth, the Rangers' only hope lies in the amazing Turbo Powers, which have made them the Power Rangers Turbo.

Sixth: There was no Sixth Ranger, but two heroes—Signalman, who had a big robo and vehicle; VRV Master, who briefly appeared. Sixth: VRV Master was not a sixth but made into Phantom Ranger, his identity was not revealed.

Thanks for this article, always wondered about this.

Kilowog said...

"The villains are uninspired."

This always made me sad about Lightspeed, probably my personal favorite Ranger team but they were up against these uninteresting enemies


Kilowog said...

Mesogog was supposed to be funny?

Lavender Ranger said...

Nathan, the Dino thunder villain comment was probably left over from ninja storm. This took forever to write and I was looking over my nephew Jaiden, so there are my excuses at my inaccuracies. As you can see on my disclaimer, I am prone to make mistakes. thanks for bringing them to my attention though! Much appericiated!

Fantasy Leader said...

Lavender Ranger, if you'd like to know more about the problems that Sentai was having behind the scenes during the 90s, I typed up a post on it on my blog. Hope it helps out. ;)

Kilowog said...

Oh ok, thanks for the clarification. For a second I thought my memories of DinoThunder were complete warped haha

also been there (got my own nephew)
