* The titular armors in ''Anime/SenkiZesshouSymphogear'' require a short, [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign mostly-nonsense]] verse to activate. The name of the relic used to make the gear is always included, and the exact verse seems unique to each relic/user combination. For example, the three users of Gungnir have:
-->'''Kanade''': Croitzal ronzell Gungnir zizzl
-->'''Hibiki''': Balwisyall nescell Gungnir tron
-->'''Maria''': Granzizel bilfen Gungnir zizzl
** ''GX'' introduces an upgrade called Ignite Mode, which activates with the phrase "Ignite Module: Drawn Blade!" regardless of the user.

*** "[[Series/PowerRangersDinoCharge Unleash the Power!]]" [[note]]''Dino Charge'' actually has a ''lot'' of stuff said when morphing, likely setting a ''record'' not just for ''Power Rangers'' but for all of {{Toku}}. Whoever leads the morph (not always Red this time!) says "It's morphin' time!" when holding out a Dino Charger. Everyone activates the Chargers, the one who led the morph saying "Dino Charger, ready!" with the others joining in on the "Ready!" It's placed in the gun, and then the chamber is spun while saying "Energize!" Upon firing, the rangers shout "Unleash the power!" Which, if any, is necessary is unknown, but "Unleash the power!" gets the nod because it's what said when actually ''firing.'' The first morph, though, was accidentally initiated when the guns were fired after the chamber was given an extended spin, suggesting that like with ''Overdrive,'' it's ''all'' RuleOfCool and not a password or something.[[/note]]

And similar to MMPR, since "It's morphin' time" isn't necessary, we get variations on it. The prince who finally managed to make an energem work for him after trying for a long time and kind of hadn't worked out the AndThenWhat part asked the others, "Is it morphing time?" before joining in. Later, Ivan, an ancient knight brought into the present day, initiates his first team morph with a cry of '''Tis morphin time!'' [[/note]]
*** "[[Series/PowerRangersNinjaSteel Ninja Spin!]]" [[note]]Unknown[[/note]][[note]]"It's morphin' time!" sticks around, but "Ninja Spin" is announced when activating any Ninja Power Star, including the ones for morphing.[[/note]]



** The Metallix season had: "Data-Bonders! Input card! Beetle-Blast!" for their Beetleborg forms and "Bug out!" and "Bug-back" to go to and from their bug forms.

** The Metallix season had: "Data-Bonders! Input card! Beetle-Blast!" for their Beetleborg forms and "Bug out!" and "Bug-back" to go to and from their bug forms. "Input card" is said when loading any data card into any device, though. Most notably, the guns had a variety of functions depending on which card was used. Yes, the tradition of having a series of collectible trinkets that activate everything including the morphers, adopted by Power Rangers in RPM, the seventeenth season, is OlderThanTheyThink.

** It wasn't just necessary for the combination, either. To even use their powers individually, they first had to call out the name of their power. As Wheeler (of course) discovered, it counts if you say the word even if you don't mean it that way.

** In one particularly embarrassing original series moment that Mumm-Ra will never live down, ''Snarf'' of all people takes advantage of this catchphrase to become even more beefy than Mumm-Ra himself. Clearly Mumm-Ra's transformation chamber could do with better security.
