* DownerEnding: It counts as this rather than BittersweetEnding because [[spoiler:not only is Pilot dead and the heroes' base destroyed, Lord Dread clearly won the day and is last seen preparing for an cybernetic upgrade to make him even less human, meaning the war is about to get worse.]]

The story followed the adventures of Captain Jonathan Power and his team of freedom fighters on a post-apocalyptic Earth where most of the population had been converted into robotic warriors by the evil Lord Dredd. Fortunately, Captain Power and his team had the ability to transform into armored super-soldiers by standing in a special booth and saying, "[[ByThePowerOfGrayskull Power on.]]"

* DarthVaderClone: Lord Dredd. While he doesn't wear a helmet, his black armor and cybernetic body certainly fit the trope.

The show was clearly inspired by the {{Sentai}} genre of Japanese toku, probably by ''SuperSentai'' specifically (though it had almost as much in common with the related ''MetalHeroes'' franchise), and as such is something of a spiritual ancestor to ''PowerRangers''.

And before anyone points it out, there were indeed earlier experiments in "interactive television", probably starting with ''WinkyDink'', or even on radio with ''Doctor Christian''. But the appearance of an interactive aspect in ''Captain Power'' seems to be part of a specific drive that went on at this time.
