**** Looking even more likely to be jossed, since Bandai of America said in an interview that Zyuohger's cube gimmick is not workable - unless they adapt the fight scenes from Zyuohger and adapt the mech footage from Kyuranger ([[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Something that does have precedence]], although it has not been done in a LOOOONG time), we're likely getting a Kyuranger adaptation.


Added DiffLines:

* Tommy was a leader by that point in ''Zeo'' and ''Turbo'' - the only reason he didn't take on the role of Red in ''Mighty Morphin'' was because there was no reason for him to switch to Red at that point. Odds are that if he had been one of the original 5 chosen by Zordon, he would've been Red the first time. Odds are that Zordon would only have given him the Green Zeo/Turbo powers if he had asked for them.

Continuing on from the previous WMG, it is likely true as well. With crossovers with {{Masked Rider}} and {{Big Bad Beetleborgs}}, it is likely that {{VR troopers}} and The Mystic Knights of Tir Ar Nog take place in the same reality too.

[[WMG: The sets of {{MacGuffin}}s from ''Dino Charge'' onward are powerful and sentient physical aspects of the Morphing Grid]]
The Energems and the Ninja Nexus Prism have several things in common: they are powerful artifacts highly-sought after by evil forces in the entire universe, they both choose who are worthy to wield their innate powers, they are infinite power sources that can be drawn from to develop new ranger armaments (Dino Chargers from Energems and Ninja Steel from the Ninja Nexus Prism), and they bestow great manifestations of their power when the sets are gathered together. Corroborated with the above WMG that the Grid is a sentient entity all by itself, these sets of {{MacGuffin}}s are basically enforcers to ensure the balance between good and evil in the universe, much like the True Runes in the ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}'' series.
* The Energems' true power is paradox-free time travel; and as such, they represent '''Time''' -- the Morphing Grid transcends all space-time.
* The Ninja Nexus Prism that the Ninja Power Stars are contained in is made of Ninja Steel, a special type of galactic steel. Steel is basically iron mixed with other substances, and iron symbolizes physical power. Thus, the Prism represents '''Strength''' -- the Morphing Grid bestows strength to chosen people as Power Rangers.

[[WMG: At some point, Saban will start working with Netflix to adapt the sentai they skip (i.e., if they start this after Ninja Steel, they'd work with Netflix to make a Zyuohger adaptation) for TV broadcast into PR series exclusive to Netflix]]
It would be the perfect way to address the BrokenBase about Saban skipping series - sure, they wouldn't be able to adapt Go-Busters, since the monster/villain suits for that series weren't made to last, but at least Saban wouldn't have to skip the series. Why do I say Netflix specifically? Because they already have all of the older Power Rangers series; why not make a Netflix exclusive PR series?

[[WMG: The Morphin Grid gives each team a limit to how many members it can have at a maximum]]
This explains why in seasons like RPM or Operation Overdrive, they can't just build an army of rangers, despite the fact that, in theory, they could do so. When a team is created for the first time, the Morphin Grid takes in various factors surrounding the team (i.e., how dire the situation the team is facing could get, how strong the powers are), and assigns a limit to how many members can be on the team - in the cases for series where there was a limit to how many morphers existed, like ''Dino Charge'', it sets the limit equal to how many morphers there are - and it gives them an extra slot if someone is able to create their own morpher (like Antonio did in ''Samurai''. This ties into Zordon's "Too much pink energy is dangerous" line - odds are that 2 rangers of the same color on the same team puts more strain on the morphin grid then 2 rangers of the same color from different teams do.

** Jossed - ironically, the Gokaiger adaptation is within the continuity of the Goseiger adaptation (specifically, it's a sequel). It seems this was the mindset he had when making the adaptation though, since they include ''Zeo'', ''Turbo'', and ''In Space'' teams as separate teams, despite the fact that members are shared between the teams [[note]]while it is possible that the ''Turbo'' rangers shown are the Robot Rangers from that series, it's not explicitly stated if that is the case[[note]] - however, as Tommy is only shown in his Green Ranger outfit (despite the fact that his legend shift when he was rescuing a kid showed him as the white ranger).

*** Jossed - while they do include some pre-''Zyuranger'' teams[[note]]''Series/KagakuSentaiDynaman'', ''Series/DengekiSentaiChangeman'', ''Series/ChoushinseiFlashman'', ''Series/HikariSentaiMaskman'', ''Series/ChikyuuSentaiFiveman'', to be specific[[/note]] and the ''Dairangers'', they don't include all of them, and they don't give background information for the teams outside of the names - ironically enough, ''Series/ChoudenshiBioman'', the series that Saban had originally tried to adapt into Power Rangers before ''Zyuranger'', is not one of the "New Powers".

[[WMG: The GagDub for ''Series/KagakuSentaiDynaman'' is in the Power Rangers Canon]]
Of all the "New Powers" that appeared in ''Megaforce'', the only one that actually appeared on American screens before was the Battalion Powers. While it's true that a lot of people haven't seen Dynaman, considering that it's the only one that appeared on American shores before Power Rangers, it's possible that it's considered canon.

*** It's been confirmed that ''Kyuranger'' is being made with American input - why would they adapt the sentai they didn't have any involvement with? Unless they decided to adapt both seasons like they did with ''Goseiger'' and ''Gokaiger'' in Megaforce, odds are that they're going to skip Zyuohger in favor of Kyuranger. Then again, I've heard Saban's contract with Nickelodeon will have expired by the time ''Super Ninja Steel'' will have finished, so Saban COULD end up moving to another network and adapting both separately.



4 main reasons for this. First reason is that since the Megaforce Rangers aren't pirates, they wouldn't exactly have a reason to steal the PR version of the Whale Change Gun. Second reason is that a fair amount of the Gokai changes in the episode are from seasons that weren't adapted into Power Rangers (most of the ones Captain Marvelous makes are into rangers from Sentai series made before they began adapting Power Rangers, both he and Gokai Yellow transform into [[series/TokumeiSentaiGoRed Buster and Yellow Buster respectively, and Gokai Green transforms into [[series/ResshaSentaiToQger [=ToQ4gou=]]]). Third reason is that the Gokaiger crossover was made to celebrate the 2000th episode of Super Sentai; we're still a long way away from the 1000th episode of Power Rangers (unless this troper is mistaken, as of the completion of Dino Super Charge, there are 831 episodes - and assuming Ninja Steel ends up with a total of 44 episodes, including the Christmas and Halloween episodes in both seasons, there will be a total of 875 episodes), and there isn't a year milestone they could celebrate (although I could be mistaken). The final reason is the same one why there isn't an ''Operation Overdrive''-''Jungle Fury'' crossover - one of the teams isn't liked by the fandom[[note]]There WAS a Boukenger vs Gekiranger crossover they could have used footage from[[/note]].

** They'd have to use all original footage for that one, since there hasn't been any sentai equivalent to that. Plus, seeing as how it's pretty expensive as is to film original footage, it would make more sense to do an all-blue version of Forever Red.

to:

** Doesn't look like it. The villains are a company in a sense, but are aliens who are involved with a gladiatorial game show and are after a power source that gives the heroes their weapons and powers.




to:

** It doesn't seem like Saban is going to great lengths to make patterns for the seasons' themes, so saying that space stuff has been used for ''In Space'' is a reason to skip a certain season isn't totally solid. Also, an adaptation of ''Zyuohger'' wouldn't necessarily have the same plot. Look at Ninja Steel compared to ''Ninninger"; They are quite divergent, like some previous seasons, and an adaptation of Zyuohger could go in many directions.
