*** It's also noted that the heroes do not have someone to act as TheLeader, making decisions as a group. They are samurai who act as one with no master to guide them, hence they are "Ronin."

* CanonForeigner: There's a character named Hariel who was made exclusively for the dub. He was made because those meddling executives felt that they needed a new character for the Inferno Armor toy because, in their eyes, [[ViewersAreMorons the target audience would be confused if there were two Ryo toys]].

'''''Yoroiden Samurai Troopers''''', a 39-episode {{Shonen}} anime produced by Sunrise in the late 1980s, centers its story around [[{{Sentai}} a group of young men]] who don transforming [[EmpathicWeapon mystical armors]].

'''''Yoroiden Samurai Troopers''''', a 39-episode {{Shonen}} anime produced by Sunrise in the late 1980s, centers its story around [[{{Sentai}} a group of young men]] who don transforming [[EmpathicWeapon mystical armors]]. Sunrise designed the show to [[FollowTheLeader capitalize on the success]] of [[Manga/SaintSeiya another hit show about young men who don mystical armors]] -- although ''Samurai Troopers'' would be made with [[JidaiGeki Sengoku]] flavor. The series found its way to the US in 1995 as '''''Ronin Warriors''''', where it meshed well during the post-''Franchise/PowerRangers'' wave. The American dub remains one of the least {{Macekre}}d {{Anime}}-to-American TV adaptations of its time in terms of cuts (excluding the [[DubNameChange name changes]]). In the first episode, Master Talpa, the [[SatanicArchetype supreme lord of the Underworld]] -- who spends most of the First Arc as a floating demonic mask (with an inexplicable-yet-menacing Welsh accent in the American dub) -- enters the mortal world and brings along a horde of demonic henchmen to help him take over Tokyo. Only a handful of people escape the flood of Talpa's Dynasty henchmen into the city, notably [[BrattyHalfPint Yuli]] (a young boy whose parents end up captured during Talpa's invasion) and Mia Koji (a young student-teacher and [[HotLibrarian researcher of ancient Japanese legends and antiquities]]). Also witness to this event: five athletic young heroes in colorful armor, one of whom (Ryo) had wandered into the city with an [[TeamPet enormous white tiger]] by his side minutes before Talpa's arrival. When Mia and Yuli find themselves threatened by soldiers of Talpa's Dynasty, Ryo and the other heroes step in to rescue them. Sensing a threat to his rule, Talpa casts the young heroes to the four winds with his supernatural powers -- which leaves Mia and Yuli left with nothing to do but find and reunite the Ronin Warriors so they can prevent TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. But the young warriors and their friends have more than just Talpa and his low-level goons to worry about: he also has [[FourIsDeath four powerful warlords]] in his employ, each of whom have their own armor and the power to unleash unspeakable horrors upon the world. (Of course, the heroes have Yuli on their side, so things pretty much even out.) After the warriors reunite, they venture into Talpa's demonic stronghold and discover the full extent of their powers -- as well as the origins of their armors and the secret they share with the Dynasty Warlords '''and''' Talpa himself: long before Talpa came to conquer Tokyo in modern times, a mystic known as The Ancient One defeated Talpa in battle. Though the mystic sent Talpa's soul to the Underworld, Talpa's demonic armor remained in the mortal world. To prevent Talpa from returning to the mortal realm, The Ancient One melted down the armor and remade it into nine separate armors. Five of these armors found their way to the Ronin Warriors, while the other four found their way to Talpa's Warlords. Even after discovering the truth, the Warriors press on into battle, and Ryo eventually defeats Talpa after the power of all five Ronin Warriors combine to give Ryo a new, far more powerful suit of armor. Following Talpa's defeat, several new foes show up to challenge Ryo and his newfound Inferno armor while Ryo learns how to control its immeasurable power, but these villains end up as little more than a distraction from the true threat: Talpa (who still lives on in the Underworld) and his corrupted servant, Lady Kayura (the last member of the line of Ancients and a force more powerful than even the Inferno Armor). Rather than wait for Talpa to invade the mortal world again, the Warriors venture into the Underworld to stop Talpa's schemes once and for all. Following the end of the series, Sunrise continued the story with the follow-up OVAs "Gaiden", "Kikoutei Densetsu" ("The Legend of the Solar Armor"), and "Message", each of which feature their own distinct storyline and villains. With its cheesy-yet-enjoyable dub, lack of content cuts, and wide exposure due to syndication (and later Creator/{{Toonami}}), ''Ronin Warriors'' helped pave the way for the mid-to-late 1990s anime boom to come. After fan demand became too loud to ignore, Bandai released the entire show on special double-sided [=DVDs=]: one side of the disc contained episodes of ''Ronin Warriors'', while the other contained subtitled and uncut episodes of the original ''Yoroiden Samurai Troopers''. After finishing the series release, Bandai released the [=OVAs=] (with a dub to boot), then eventually released both the series and the [=OVAs=] together in a huge collector's set. The individual DVD releases also had a special "flip" cover: one side had a ''Ronin Warriors'' version of the cover, while the other side had the ''Yoroiden Samurai Troopers'' version. While both sides shared similar layouts, the back-cover text and the logos stayed in line with each specific version of the show (right down to episode titles and character names). Those releases have since fallen out of print, but Creator/DiscotekMedia eventually rescued the ''Samurai Troopers'' license and released the the series and the OVAs on DVD; legal issues surrounding the ''Ronin Warriors'' dub has prevented the company from re-releasing that version.

(The dub script had several ShoutOut lines to ''StarWars'' in recognition of this.)

* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: [[TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse Tokyo]] becomes a ghost metropolis in the first episode and most locales are bereft of {{muggles}}. * EpicFail: Episode 6: Sage tries to break open the boulder Kento is trapped in with his sword, but bounces off. Episode 11: The heroes attempt to transform, but nothing happens because the area had a PowerNullifier. ** Episode 16: Ryo and the other Ronins storm Talpa's palace, complete with [[ThemeMusicPowerUp Theme Music Power Up]]. He then proceeds to execute his signature attack on the castle in order to force Talpa out. [[spoiler:Then the music stops and the attack bounces right back in their face. Quite entertaining to watch.]] * EvilCannotComprehendGood: Literally. [[spoiler:This proves to be Talpa's final undoing]]. ** Specifically, it forces him to hold the IdiotBall [[spoiler:when it comes to the human characters Mia and Yuli. Talpa just can't see them as anything other than weak, inconsequential children even after they've saved the Ronins several times ''and'' acquired an artifact which can destroy his power. If he had just thrown the bulk of his forces at Mia and Yuli (or brainwashed a human assassin to take them out on the sly if he didn't want to confront the heroes directly,) he would have had no problem taking over the world. ]]
